A Must!

Service and food were were exceptional! We were initially told by the hostess they were full until a later hour. Just as we were walking away with intent to return later as recommended, she came rushing outside to get us, insisting that they would make room for us. A full restaurant usually is a... read more

This is a small and cozy place to dine. Staff was wonderful. The food was so very good. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Reservations a must!

Food was very good. But the service very rushed. 3 courses served in less than an hour. The appetizer in a few minutes and before the wine. But the bill was brought without asking and before we had even got a third the way through the dessert. Not the way to enjoy a romantic anniversary dinner. Plus the bill was... More

My wife had the lobster ravioli, and she said it was probably the best she has ever had. Myself, however, did not enjoy my meal all that much. I had the spinach and cheese ravioli (special of the night), and felt like I was just eating wet noodles. They could have put more cheese in them, they were almost completely... More

Our appetizers (Sea scallops and wild mushroom and polenta) and our entrees of medallions of beef and duck breast, were truly superb. Service was excellent by Ecola and Max; small space but warm and inviting ambiance. A bit on the pricey end, but well worth the cost.

We had the Lobster Ravioli appetizer, the special Roasted Tomato Soup, the Shredded Brisket on Creamy Polenta and the Rack of Lamb. The Brisket is sweet and tangy and melts in your mouth. The Lamb was a good cut, generous with a spot-on reduction that makes you want to order more bread or embarrass yourself by licking the plate. The... More

Our dining party sampled the array of lovely dishes for our dinner from the special ravioli to the fish of the day and a chicken marsala. Each was superbly done--- the fish was perfectly cooked-- not over done with an amazing sauce. Each of the other dishes was divine. I would say that my only tiny nit picky critique was... More

While making reservations request for seating in the main dining area on the ground floor- not sure though if they can accommodate too many of such requests. We did not enjoy the upstairs seating area for which we had to enter from the back side of the building.. Takes away the special feel. The area upstairs is claustrophobic with no... More

Newmans at 988 is an incredible restaurant nestled in Cannon Beach. The food is spectacular; the service is spot on and the atmosphere is intimate. Will definitely be back!

Newman's. In all my Cannon Beach visiting years, of which there are many, I've never eaten at Newman's. Whaaat? Well, that changed this past week. The exterior has much to be desired, but once inside, it's a beautiful little retreat, if umm...a bit tight. But alas! The hostess led us back outside, around the building to the back (hello dumpster)... More
