Was informed that this was a unique and fine restaurant, but found limited choices beyond a wide variety of noodle dishes and several Asian specialties. Noodle dishes were spicy, despite advice that they weren't. The small plate of tuna was very good, especially the mustard sauce. Not for anyone seeking food outside Asian specialties. Must be a 'noodle lover' to... More

Six of us wanted a quiet table for chatting and good food, and we found it at Newton's Table. Heretofore, I had usually had their unique Fuzu pasta dish with a tasty mixture of seafood and veggies, but this time several of us tried their fish... an entire Mediterranean fish, simply prepared with oil and spices. It was just about... More

I enjoyed my dinner but, my two guests were not quite as pleased. They felt their food was just mediocre and the steak special my friend ordered was $44. And, if you’re a bread lover, forget it. It’s not served here. My meal, the Coco-Surry Fuzu was excellent and only $27, one of the least expensive dinners on the menu.... More

The restaurant serves great and varies food with gracious but unpretentious service. Unlike many places, not designed to feed egos but to feed appetite for good and creative food,

Dinner on a Tuesday night. Quiet atmosphere, excellent food, generous food portions. I had the salmon and my co-workers had the mushroom ravioli. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and the quiet atmosphere that allowed us to chat without talking loudly and listen without straining. Our server was attentive and very professional. I would love to have the opportunity to... More

WONDERFUL menu. The bison and the mushroom ravioli are among the best I've ever had. FANTASTIC cocktails, unusual wine menu and lovely staff. I had the ice cream and sorbet assortment - something I usually wouldn't select - and the blackberry mint ice cream is among the best homemade flavors I've ever had.

We had a really delicious dinner here recently and everyone in our party of four enjoyed their appetizers, main courses, and the dessert very much. The only little part of it we didn't like is they don't serve any bread at all. We had mussels as an appetizer with a really fabulous sauce, and it was a bit frustrating not... More

I had their "signature" dish which was bison as did another person at the table. They were both overcooked one grade. They were a bit fatty and a bit tough. Nice flavor but certainly not award winning. The fish of the day which the other two people had was very good. Nice setting but also not awesome. The beer was... More

Went here for our 9th anniversary. Went off the reviews and the reviewers were great guides to this restaurant. The staff was great and food was fantastic. Great place to have a special occasion. Spent $200 including tip for two appetizers, cosmo, two glasses of wine, two spectacular entries, and two desserts. I didn't leave hungry. Chef Friedman...thanks for coming... More
