We went to Newmans after a lot of research for my husband's birthday. It was fabulous. Everything fresh, baked goods made on site, lovely service, not rushed. The couple sitting behind us, whom we didn't know purchased the bottle of wine my husband chose for us-- the gesture made me weep. You must try the roasted ceasear with pancetta, it's... More

The restaurant is set on the edge of the neighborhood, and seems to be an old historic building. Don't ever judge a book by its cover, and don't ever judge a restaurant by its building. The interior is decorated with candles, tainted panels, and old furniture: cozy, comfortable, but not luxurious by any standard. Though lighted by candles, the room... More

Our last night at Arch Cape we wandered down to Canon Beach and with the help of other Trip Advisor reviews, tried Newmans at 988. We were seated next to the faux fireplace but it still radiated nice heat, but not too much, adding nice ambiance. We got there at 6 which was fortunate because it is relatively small and... More

Excellent dinner choice with great service. Definitely one of the top 5 Dinners in Cannon Beach. All of the food is good just depends on your personal taste. The place is what you expect for fine french dining although it is slightly crowded but don't let that detract from your dinner. This is our second time here in 6 months... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were expecting better. The food was very good, but the biggest factor affecting our rating was that the service was only average at best. It was the evening before Thanksgiving and maybe the staff was hoping to be somewhere else, but it just felt like it didn't matter that we were there and... More

We had another wonderful dinner at Newman's at 998. The courses were all delicious (beef medallions, rack of lamb). Katie was really fun, but the best part as when she ran down the street after us to return our friend's hat!

This is an old house. We chose to be on the "upper level." The upper level is a small second floor accessed from the outside by steep stairs -- we recommend "lower level" dining. The lobster ravioli is superb. Generous chunks of lobster, prepared just right. The service was good, not outstanding. Someone didn't show up and the hostess was... More

My boyfriend and I dined at three restaurants each costing around $115 (before gratuity) while on a thanksgiving road trip. The first was Larrupin, second Girl and the Fig and the last Newmans. Can't say enough positive about the first two. We were excited to eat at Newmans given the positive reviews. I ordered the mushroom polenta and ravioli. My... More

If we both would have ordered the lobster ravioli I would give this a straight out very good rating. All in all, remembering that it is a costal restaurant, it was a charming place and the food was pretty good. POSITIVES: Reasonable service. Diverse but not overwhelming menu. Nice wine list with affordable to higher end wines. The lobster ravioli... More

Being from Portland, foodie capital of the world, we were delighted with our meals. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and I highly recommend the duck if it is on the menu. Small and quaint, grab a reservation in advance and enjoy your dining experience.
