I went there for lunch and not only did I have a great meal, the service was amazing.It was Newport Restaurant Week so our menu was limited but this did not alter the fact that what was offered was well thought out for maximum enjoyment for the diners. Because of the cost I will only be able to go when... More

We received a generous gift card and were looking forward to a splurge. The space is sophisticated and understated, which showcases stellar water views. Unfortunately the service nor food lived up to the decor. We could hardly hear the hostess's greeting over loud music -- pounding bass which did little to enhance from the gorgeous sunset -- so we asked... More

We arrived by car, saw the sign saying "Valet Parking $10" but saw no valet, so pulled into a spot (lot was almost empty).. A young man ran out saying that would cost us $10 - no welcome, no asking if we were guests. He took my keys. Upon entering the restaurant, which looks quite nice, elegant, upscale, there was...

Breakfast was so good. I'm gluten free and they even had gluten free bread for toast. Orange juice was freshly squeezed and so good. Eggs were cooked perfectly and everything tasted so fresh. One night during our stay we ordered an apple crisp and it was delivered within minutes of ordering. It was decomposed so everything was on the plate... More

We were there in mid-November, and at two late lunches mid-week, we were the only customers. When we came back at night, it didn't seem as if anyone was eating there, and there was only one person at the bar. The prices seemed fair, and the food was good.

We are locals who went here for restaurant week. The regular menu is pretty unimaginative but the restaurant week menu was more intriguing. We were a party of 4 but it took 10 minutes for us to realize that the other couple had been seated separately; the restaurant is dark. The view over the harbor here is beautiful- but we... More

Our waitstaff could not have been less attentive. Attention to detail did not exist, right down to dirty plate. Food was good, but because of the poor staff I did not enjoy. I would not recommend or go back. There are many other good choices near by.
