The food, the setting, the service....everything is top notch. They even brought out a complimentary dessert since I had mentioned it was my wedding anniversary in the Open Table reservation. Highly recommend this restaurant and sit outside if the weather is nice. The view and people watching can't be beat.

We were driving from Boston back to NYC and decided to stop by Newport to check out the mansions. We had an early dinner and walked in this restaurant. For appetizers, we had the oysters which were fresh and succulent. For the main course, I had the lobster roll which was one of the best I have tried. My friend... More

Made a reservation on a busy Saturday night for 9:00. We arrived a little while earlier and were seated right away. The service was really great and we enjoyed our meals and drinks. The location is perfect and beautiful for a summer night. Will be back soon!

My wife and I dinner here July 5ht. We made reservations a few weeks earlier, which I strongly advise during the season. The service was very professional and knowledgeable. We both ordered seafood, wine and dessert. The food was nicely prepared and was delicious. The restaurant was getting crowded by the time we arrived at 6PM. I would suggest parking... More

We arrived in Newport at lunch time and the professional look of the wait staff, and the menu drew us in, having checked out the other eateries. Wait staff were fantastic, and the menu made choices difficult. We both opted for the steak and goat cheese sandwich which was moist, succulent and mind blowing! Wish we had a restaurant like...

Upon arriving to Newport, my husband and I needed lunch and we found this restaurant first. It sits on the harbor and has outdoor and indoor seating. We were at a table that was next to the windows, so we had air conditioning and fresh air, which was perfect after a long drive. The service was good and the food... More
