Local Ocean restaurant on Newport bay front is the best local source of fresh seafood. The service is great and since expanding the upstairs the veiw has improved. A delightful fusion of seafood this, Mexican, and local taste is wonderful combination. We have been enjoying this restaurant for several years and although crowded at times, iit's well worth the wait.

I have been coming here for a few good years and I still highly recommend it. If you are a fresh seafood lover and looking to step away from fish n' chips, you will not be disappointed. I refuse to eat anywhere else in Newport.

Not the fanciest Restaurant. A bit intimidating at first with its lackadaisical decor, but the service and unique presentation of their fresh seafood is something to be savored. I had the lunch special. In-house smoked black cod bowl. I had never seen it on a menu. It was the special. My server said I may never may see it again.... More

The ambiance was nice (except for the loud guys at one table) and the service was great. The Cioppino was pretty good but I have had more flavorful elsewhere.

It's a very busy place so be prepared for a wait if you get there after 6. I would also recommend trying to get a table on the second floor. It's much quieter and not right next to the kitchen unlike the first floor. It's pretty expensive, but it's worth it. We had the fish and chips and it was... More

Arrived shortly after the opened for dinner and it was already packed. If they put you on a wait list they take your number to text /call when the table is ready. This was a good opportunity to stroll down the street and watch the sea lions lay about. However, I'm glad my family was keeping an eye on the... More

I go back to newport quite a bit- and I cannot be in town for any period of time without stopping here for a meal! It can be pretty busy, and if there's a wait, I promise it's worth it! They recently opened up an upstairs dining area with a small bar as well- Little more quiet and quaint- and... More

I had a burger craving last week and decided to indulge after recent trips to local ocean seafood, having carefully observed their kitchen grill area. So the order was requested medium, with bacon and Oregonzola cheese. The bun is a local Panini Bakery special and gently grilled. The result was unequivocally the best burger I can remember in my 37... More

Although we have been coming to Newport for many years we had not eaten here before. It is a change from the usual Clam Chowder/Fish & Chip places. It is not large, but the open kitchen and the full windows allowing good view of the harbor make it seem light and airy. The menu is a little over-complicated listing every... More
