We are Cannon Beach locals and have only eaten her a couple times. The first time my wife sent her food back; it was dry and flavorless. We finally went back a few years later and again were not wowed by the food. The setting is quaint and service is good but if the food isn't great, what's the point?

This is a fantastic place for a romantic dinner - we had the prix fixe menu with the wine pairings, and it was simply incredible

We've always walked by this place in Cannon Beach and always wanted to try it as we heard really great things about it. Unfortunately we always had our dog with us, so we were never able to go for it. Well, after the meal we had here, I might just leave the dog at home anytime I go to Cannon... More

It was a last minute decision to dine at Newman's on our first night in Cannon Beach and it was a good one. It is a small, cozy dining room which is very pleasant complemented by excellent friendly service. The food was very good starting with a curry tomato soup. That was followed by the lobster ravioli which was delicious... More

We always eat at the Wayfarer as it is just so yummy but we decided to try something new. Quaint little French restaurants are my fave and it was my birthday. The beef medallions were delicious but I left feeling hungry and the meal, after $9 for the salad and $9 for a glass of wine, was nearly $70 each... More

The reason for our trip to Cannon Beach was to eat at Newman's. It was our first time at the restaraunt, but we had experienced Chef John's amazing talents several years ago when he was at the Stephanie Inn. Our meal, from start to finish was sheer perfection. We started with crab cakes...best we ever tasted! John's Red Onion Soup... More

Made a last minute reservation for Saturday evening while in town. Our first visit of many more to come! The food was absolutely delicious! Started with the lobster stuffed ravioli which was so good. We wished we had that as our entree! Enjoyed the grilled romaine salad so much...want to figure out that recipe! We had the Filet Mignon and... More

Ate here on Valentine's day with my girlfriend. The service was excellent as well as the food. We started with crab cakes and lobster ravioli. This place could probably just sell their crab cakes for a living and be alright, they were that good! Portabella with fried cornbread and shrimp scampi were the entrees for the evening. Everything was presented... More

I really cannot say enough about how good our visit to this place was. The ambiance was great, the service (Katy) impeccable, and the food... Simply amazing. As my wife and I are constantly traveling for both work and leisure we have been able to dine and many great restaurants across Europe and North America. I have to say that... More

Delicious food with excellent presentation. They are more than willing to let you split a dinner. The prices are about equal to the Wayfarer Restaurant, but a classier atmosphere.
