Great food but spotty service

We went to Newton's Table on its last night before becoming a barbecue restaurant (New Year's Eve). The food was excellent, but the service was slow and not authentically friendly. We were with friends, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary as well as New Year's Eve. One of our friends had... read more

I've gone to newtons table since they opened. In fact, I couldn't wait until it opened. I happened to love to Fuzu noodles! I ate them at least once a week when they began to serve them at Bezu. And then came Newtons Table and they were finally opened. My chance to have the once great noodles. Well, they are... More

Paid way too much for so-so food. Fuzu too salty, sea bass bland. We were only table. Grilled flat bread only good thing. Won't be going back.

If there were a "zero star" rating, that's what rating I'd give to Newton's Table, in Bethesda, Maryland. A Saturday night dinner ... "Coco Curry Fuzu" for $27 sounded like a delicious noodle dish with mussels, shrimp, scallops, lime, curry... What was served was no better than an absolutely dreadfully prepared Pad Thai... (In Williamstown, MA, where we live, there... More

TripAdvisor makes a big mistake by giving this place a great award. Several of the dishes on the menu were unavailable. The ones we received were not particularly impressive. Duck tacos weren't much more than a few shreds of duck on mini-tortillas. Mushroom ravioli stuck together, as if they'd been sitting for a while in the kitchen, and in an... More

Newton's Table is my go to restaurant when I want to celebrate something special -- or just want to have a great dinner. The tuna appetizer is amazing but really you cant go wrong with any of the appetizers or entrees for that matter. The short ribs, the bison (a special), fuzu noodles, tuna, actually everything is great. The chocolate... More

I picked this restaurant because I needed something nice for a business dinner. There was nobody else dining there on a Monday night and all the other restaurants were packed, so I was perplexed and worried about this. However, there was no need to worry. The experience was just fine. It was a beautiful night, so we dined outside. The... More

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
