We ordered Crab Cakes and we sent them back because they were incredibly salty. The polenta mushroom appetizer was good. The halibut was very over priced and uneventful and the romaine hearts lettuce was not good. The prawns were over cooked. We were not impressed at all. Over priced and poor quality food. Service was okay. Would not go back.

My Husband and I stayed in cannon beach and picked Newmans at 988 for dinner. Our table was upstairs. Our experience from start to finish was absolutely incredible. I am still dreaming about the shrimp scampi dinner I ate, and my Husbands choice of lamb! The service was exquisite and the ambiance was perfect for our anniversary celebration. We sat... More

Went here for my wife and I's anniversary the food was delicious. Wide selection of french and italian cuisine. With daily specials. A bit pricey but very good food. The restaurant itself is set inside of an little old heritage cottage. From the street you may even miss it if you aren't looking for it.

We made reservations before heading to Cannon Beach for a quick getaway. First time at Newmans. From start to finish of our meal was a five star. Lobster ravioli, scallops with excellent soup salad and dessert. Good wine list. One of the best meals we've had in our travels. A must on anyone's bucket list. We will be back when... More

This is a very small (10 table) restaurant, so book early. The service was great and the food was wonderful. Portions were very generous - we packed our leftover beef for a picnic lunch the next day!

Following great reviews from other contributors, we enjoyed an early anniversary dinner at Newman's. Salads were fresh and delicious, entrees far above average. I had the chicken marsala on penne; the saucing was outstanding. Husband enjoyed a filet, cooked to perfection. Sharing a lemon curd cheesecake, we were delighted to have the plate garnished with a frozen chocolate "inscription" on... More

We have visited this tiny restaurant before & continue to be amazed at the delicious food coming out of the kitchen. I am gluten free & am thrilled that I can eat most of their menu including crab cakes! We both had the rack of lamb-8 ribs worth on each plate-cooked to perfection. Grand Marnier creme brullet dessert was fabulous.... More

Great food. Starters were tomato soup and mushroom polenta. Both were very good. Lots of mushrooms with a great sauce. Wife had salad for dinner it was good. I had scallops as main and they were fantastic. Perfectly cooked with a light dusting of urchin eggs. Deserts were huckleberry brûlée and apple tart with cinnamon gelato. Great service. Overall a...

This lovely converted cottage was recommended to us by a lovely young lady who was a partner at Celilo's in Hood River. She sure steered us in the right direction. You name it, fresh halibut, fresh salmon, etc. This was our last stop on our 8-day swing thru the Oregon Coast and it filled the bill for great memories.

This is our second visit here. We meet some people that regularly come to this restaurant and considered it a hidden jewel in Cannon Beach. However, our food was good. Our service was definitely off. Our server asked if we wanted pepper with our soup but never brought it and never remembered and never checked on except after we were... More
