Fab-u-lous, hard to find anything better in Newport

A great little bistro with a wide menu and fabulous food. Great atmosphere, never felt rushed even though it was very busy. You need to book in advance to get a table as it is a very popular restaurant with not a lot of tables. As such you would expect you to be rushed so that they can get more... read more

This is a nice little bistro with a great menu. Prices are above average. The owners are nice and try to interact with their patrons when they have time. They have a nice international wine selection. I had the roasted duck breast with port and dried currant duck jus, but I think they ran out of jus, as there was... More

For a town the size of Newport this is a very good place to dine. Good Nye Beach location and a splendid menu. Quaint is another word for crowded and this place is both. Very capable staff and a decent selection. We will return.

We arrived for our 7pm reservation and our evening began well but less than half an hour into our meal we got the feeling that they were wanting to close up. Our fellow diners were all elderly and had all left by 7.30pm. There was a neon 'open' sign by our table and the waitress reached across us to switch... More

Every time we come to the Pacific Northwest we have dinner at April's at Nye Beach. They concentrate on local, fresh produce and it is prepared beautifully. The service is always great, plus a good wine menu. Be certain to make a reservation.

I had my share of fresh seafood restaurants along the historic Bay Area. As a change of pace, we had dinner at Aprils, a somewhat more upscale place. The empahsis was on local produce and organic salads and meats. Enjoyed the steak, salad and sides. Aprils has few tables; reservation is recommended. (4 and a half stars)

I had been meaning to try this restaurant, which is generally considered one of the nest in Newport. It is a nicely appointed, somewhat small, restaurant. but I was disappointed over several small issues. Service was OK until meal was served, and then hard to get. The roasted duck I ordered was good but not great, with a uninspired sauce... More

My husband and I took a two week road trip from Seattle to Sonoma, April's was hands down our favorite meal on the trip. The best heirloom tomato salad I have ever had! I had the scallops and my husband had the halibut. Both meals were very fresh and delicious. The staff was wonderful. Great service.

My wife and I have been going to April's for years and it's always tasty and fun. Proprietors April and Kent grow much of the produce they serve at their farm about 6 miles inland. No surprise then that the summer capreses, salads, and veggies are wonderfully fresh. The salmon, duck, and pasta entrees are always outstanding. April really does... More

A delightful evening with family who are also friends. Even with dietary restrictions the taste standards were not compromised. Great good with nice wine list.
