We have been to the Spice Pear a couple times before but this time we sat at the Chef's Table and we had the tasting menu paired with wines. I have to start by saying the atmosphere is just amazingly beautiful wherever you sit in this gorgeous restaurant! The view from each table is just breathtaking! We were quite impressed... More

What a fabulous experience. We absolutely loved this place. It is simply elegant and the nicest restaurant we have ever been to in Newport. Ask for one of the two tables at the end of the room facing the ocean. There is an outdoor balcony literally steps away that you can walk out onto and enjoy the view and sounds... More

We walked cliff walk and decided to stop here for drinks and appetizers. The staff was great and it was truly enjoyable. The spicy pork steamers were delicious. Was well worth it just for the scenery alone.

Stopped for a leisurely lunch on a beautiful Saturday afternoon on the veranda after wanting to try Spiced Pear at The Chanler for quite some time. Service was timely, professional and pleasant. Fish Tacos were perfect taste and texture and chowder some of the best I ever had. Never felt rushed to leave and wound up sitting on the Adirondack... More

We anticipated a great dinner. We were quite happy with the table, overlooking Easton Bay. The dinner was preceded by cocktails prepared by a pro. Dinner was beautifully presented, with very reasonable portions. The wine list was excellent. The sommelier recorded our choices for my files. After dinner, we were given a brief kitchen tour, of a very fine facility.... More

The dining room has lovely views of the Easton Bay and surrounding grounds. The menu was not overwhelming, offering selections of seafood, meats, salads, lobster bisque (which was fabulous!) Our waiter was very friendly and perfectly attentive, not overbearing. After dinner, out to the patio and onto the grounds, is a fire pit for an after dinner drink. Beautiful.

The weather did not permit outdoor seating but the bar tables provided open air dining and the meal, setting and service were superb. We had app's of tomatillo gazpacho (green and yummy), and soft shelled crab (what a treat and the plate included lots of little surprising bites of greens, peeled cherry tomato, sauce, zucchini, corn - sumptuous presentation!).

Our car was met by the valets who whisked us inside. They happily seated our large group and served us as though we were just a few. The menu was great and -- the view was WOW!

I ate here with my siblings last week and found a very elegant dining experience. the restaurant overlooks the bay, unfortunately for us it was too cloudy for us to enjoy the view. The host that seated us seemed disinterested and took his time helping us, but the wait staff was excellent. They were well informed, they accommodated our requests... More

Dear Larhee, Thank you for your kind words about your dining experience with us. It's a shame that the day was so cloudy! I wish it would have been a clear day so you could see the stunning views that The Spiced Pear offers overlooking the water. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't feel completely welcomed when you arrived.... More
