A very unique menu, with bold and carefully thought out pairings. Make sure to stop at the bar for a "one of a kind" cocktail and ask for Derek!

Very friendly cool waitress - chili was good but not hot enough - mains of ravioli and pad Thai were good but portion sizes are huge! Good value. Quiet when we went would recommend but nicer views and seafood elsewhere like the moorings or Bowen 22

A funky, late night spot that we hit up for dinner and drinks. I'm amiss to all the dishes we ordered but what I do recall was lobster & pasta, mussels, and a fish dish (?). Either way we enjoyed everything and the drinks.

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B host and really enjoyed it. It is outside the tourist area (but walking distance) and has a fun ambience with really good food. We will go again the next time we stay in Newport.

I went to school nearby, and came here many times on Saturday nights with friends. The design is eclectic - and it works. There was a stuffed chicken on a fleur de lis lampshade on one of my visits, and somehow the whole place still looked put together. The service is great, friendly waitstaff, an they are quick even when... More

We have been eating at this restaurant every year during the Newport Folk Festival, and this year we were a party of 9. The reservation was handled perfectly and we were seated at a great table right up front. Compared to many Newport establishments, this place is very reasonable, especially for the quality and creativity of the food.

Hands down the best kept secret in Newport! Great food, local ambiance, interesting triple bar scene including a summer garden and rooftop. The solid menu ranges from a heavenly short ribs burger with savory truffle fries to grilled catch of the day. Summertime line-caught sea bass is a menu delight, served in a "lobster nage." Take note, local Atlantic bass... More

We got take out from here and it was absolutely delicious! We ordered the Roasted Golden Beet Terrine, the Daily Fish Special, and Crispy Jalapeno, Goat Cheese & the Black Bean Ravioli and they were all amazing. We'll be back really soon! Thanks for an absolutely delicious meal. We totally recommend this restaurant.
