Newman's is easy to drive by, but that would be a mistake. Warm greetings, fine wine list (glass and bottle), a menu that varies but has ample choices without overwhelming, and an excellent meal. Service was good; not speedy when it's busy, but attentive. This is not a place to dine if you're in a hurry (that's not a bad... More

There is EVERYTHING to like about Newmans at 988. Don't be deterred by the exterior. This is fine dining!Hubby and I shared a wilted romaine salad and appetizer of lobster ravioli that was outstanding. Too often lobster is presented with too richness of a sauce; not here! Perfectly executed and beautifully presented. Hubby was very pleased with his seafood dish,... More

Just left the restaurant after it was recommended as the best in Cannon Beach. Service was horrible. On the plus side the crab cakes were phenomenal. For the price it should all be aces though. Server ignored us and didn't once refill our wine. Must rely on tourists. Won't go back.

Excellent seafood. Although they do have other things on the menu. Our group of 6 had either the Scallops, or the Shrimp and were all extremely satisfied. Prices a tad high but reasonable for the quality. We brought our own wine so did not get to look at the wine list. Sorry. Also did not get dessert. Must make a... More

Upon reading other reviews we made reservations which was highly recommended as they book up quickly. We were not disappointed, it is a small intimate restaurant with great service and food. We were seated upstairs and it was very nice because it was quite and it felt like we had our own personal wait staff shared with only 2 other... More

Menu was great. Food was great. Service was top notch. A heritage house near the beach and easy walk from most of Cannon Beach.

After a stroll on the beach we walked past and saw the sign for "French Italian cuisine." We called for a reservation and were able to get in "upstairs." The upstairs dining area is accessed by going outside and around the back. It is not handicap assessable. Although the dining room is small with only seven tables, it is pleasant.... More

An historic house re-purposed to be be a small, rather exclusive restaurant. Management not secure about reservations/walk-ins… The food was above the average. Mushroom polenta, halibut, and a most generous serving of Warrenton lamb. Thumbs up!
