We had difficulty locating April's on a dark, rainy evening, but are glad we didn't give up. Our waiter was engaging and informed, and the décor was simple and elegant. We began with a wonderful salad of greens, smoky-meaty bacon, toasted filbert halves, gorgonzola, grilled pears, yellow tomatoes, and a drizzle of balsamic, that was large enough to share. The...

Staying one night in Newport, we decided to give this n°1-rated restaurant a go. We were not disappointed : the food was excellent (we had the scallops); after a salad as a starter, we could not face two desserts but shared the wonderful chocolate cake. Service was excellent too and we were well advised for a wine that would go... More

We wanted to love the food here at Aprils. Over the years we've had several very nice meals here. This visit we ordered a polenta, greens and portabello mushroom appetizer with a balsamic reduction dressing - and it was fabulous. Tart and a bit sweet, with a bit of diced tomatoes and of course the sautéed crispy polenta - loved... More

This was our 3rd time eating dinner at April's. We love the quiet atmosphere, lovely artwork, pleasant servers and great food in this one-of-a-kind restaurant at the top of the hill. Windows provide views of the quaint Sylvia Hotel across the street. This is definitely a place to escape the complexities of daily life and relax and visit. The duck... More

quiet, intimate, terrific service, nice views of the street as people walk by - gourmet food. Perfect for anniversaries, out of town friends. Been going here 8 years now.

our meal was bar-setting! House bruschetta was good, beet salad also very good. Clam linguini great; seared scallops bar-setting! Flavor of the scallops wins the day! We loved our meal, and took home an incredible chocolate torte. Thank you, to whomever is the chef at April's!

Probably one of the best restaurants we have been to in a long time. Good wine list, save room for desert. Great coffee.

I've been to April's several times and they are always a hit. The food is amazing. Lots of fresh ingredients. I had the Shrimp Scampi and it was to die for. What is really awesome is the Chocolate Torte. OMG it is amazing. If you decide to go here make reservations if you can. They are always packed.

April's is a small restaurant that I would classify as Blue Jean Fine Dining. Some call it Beach Casual. What it means is come as you are. The restaurant itself is a little bit casual and a little bit fine dining. The food itself is definitely fine dining. We started out by ordering a large Caesar salad to split. I... More

Just one of the best evenings we had on our recent trip to Newport OR. April's was rated 4.6 and we were not disappointed. Service over the top, food just outstanding.
