You need to make reservations as the restaurant is quite popular. The menu is varied. My husband had the scallops which were great. I had the duck and my friend had the linguine with clams. Everyone raved. The service was good and the dessert was a must.

The food was so fresh, I think they have a farm that supplies all the produce. Our server was so nice and made great recommendations for wine. I had the duck, it was tender. We split two of the salads, one was a special. Everything was amazing. I tried my friend's scallops, they were insane. Everything was great.

This is a tricky one to summarize. Owners Ken and April have done a heroic job establishing a Nye Beach institution pairing produce from their farm up the road in Toledo with locally sourced meats and fish. The room is spartan-quaint, the service brisk, attentive and helpful, but... I have to say the meal was un-remarkable. Another reviewer mentioned the... More

I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before we went to Newport and I thought that April's would be a great pick for an evening of fine dining. What a huge disappointment it turned out to be. First of all it is a block from the beach. Some tables have a view of the beach a block away. We... More

I thought April's couldn't get any better, but then dessert came! The raspberry cream was the perfect ending to a perfect meal after a perfect day at Nye Beach!

Small but delightful, and so you really should call ahead for reservations. I've come here a number of times over the years, and have always found it a fun dining experience. Staff is friendly and efficient. The owners -- Ken and April -- clearly have made this a labor of love, and it shows! The wine list is excellent, with... More

We visited April's on a recommendation of our B&B and managed to snag the last 8:00pm reservation. It's a lovely little place in the historic Nye Beach area and they're extremely popular. While we waited to be seated they turned several people away who came to the door without reservations. The service was wonderful and our waitress was eager to... More

Walked by our first night here nice cozy little restaurant. Called for reservations, needed for a weekend night. Started with appetizer, looked great and tasted just as good as it looked. Dinner was also very good. Would definitely go back when in town again. Can see why is rated high on trip advisor.
