We had a fantastic dinner last Thursday night. Raw bar was fresh and delicious, we both had the illet mignon, started with a wedge salad which they split for us (very nice!) and the amazing calamari …added a bottle of the house red wine! We weren't rushed at all, our server was extremely attentive and accommodating.

Recently, I joined a business associate for dinner at 22 Bowen's in Newport. While the experience was acceptable, I was, quite frankly, underwhelmed, especially for the price of the meal. The restaurant is located on the wharf, so I was primed to imbibe in some fresh seafood, something that is hard to find around in the part of the country... More

My boyfriend and I came here on a Wednesday night. First we started with the french onion soup, best I've ever had! We split the aged sirloin, delicious and cooked perfectly. Lyonaise potatoes were yummy. We also ordered the 3 lb baked stuffed lobster.. lobster was delicious but I would not order it stuffed next time. It cost $13 extra... More

Eaten here a number of times for dinner. Great service and so pleasant!!!!! Friday night 3 course dinner for about $30 is such a deal!!!!! Only a few entree options offered, however, for the special deal. The wedge salad and salmon with very large shrimp were very tender and tasty. Great at accommodating food "allergies" and preferences. In addition, on... More

I had a seafood pasta dish that was stuffed with huge shrimp and nice portions of lobster. I would recommend it. It was enough for two people. The creme brulee was unique. It had cranberries and other accompanying garnishes. Very good.

Let me start off by say the ambience was great my wife loved it here. Started off with the wedge salad and oysters. Both were very good. I had a 2lb stuffed lobster and my wife had fish. Again both were very good. Dining experience was very good from top to bottom
