Summer & winter

Love eating outside on the patio in the summer. Usually have an app & wood grilled pizza along with a nice bottle of wine ( great wine selection). Colder weather I move inside to the upstairs tavern. Service is very attentive. Have always been happy.

Absolutely delightful. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it is worth every penny. My wife and I ate there for the first time last Saturday and look forward to returning as often as we can. A simple, elegant dining room with a cozy fire is perfect on a winter's night. The food was excellent. The service was remarkable. They... More

The best meal I have had in a very long time. They have set the bar very high. You must eat here! I personally loved the crab from Maine, the scallops and the pasta with lobster dish. Seriously, this is the place for seafood done correctly. The craft beer list is impressive, as is the wine list. If you are... More

We enjoyed a wonderful brunch here this weekend. The menu is perfect, not big, but something for everyone. All of our dishes were prepared perfectly with fresh, local ingredients. The owner is in the kitchen and takes great pride in the quality of the food and service. Really nice team here, too, providing friendly and professional service all around. We'll... More

Stopped over here on my way back from Newport and was in for a real treat. Three different courses with the star being the black truffle pasta - and it was a generous amount of that. Service European style, non rushed, not in your face and very professional. Simple elegant dining room - great choice overall.

My husband and I were both really impressed with our meal here... excellent food. Our table was a little cramped (my husband kept getting bumped by the waiters) but overall we enjoyed our dinner. Love this street in Jamestown, adorable little strip of restaurants across the street from a beautiful beach overlooking the Newport bridge.

After having this restaurant on my radar for a while, i was finally able to get to Jamestown Fish for an early lunch on a sunny, blustery afternoon in October. Parking was a cinch and we strolled past the lovely outside dining area, although we could have easily eaten at the outside bar since the area was heated and looked... More

Service was great! Unfortunately my dish (the baked local cod), was an average preparation but priced way above that. The bread and olive oil were excellent. And the side salad was a nice blend of a variety of good lettuces.

Top restaurant in town, prices show that. The food was great--their Jamestown Fish soup was a spicy puree, and the Lobster Linguine was plentiful and tasty. But I couldn't help but think I had ordered a puree and buttered noodles--a step up from baby food. Maybe it's just me. My wife had the halibut, and it was firm and delicious.... More
