Good, could be better

Service fine, food nice and reasonably priced, but.. we all had a main course of scallops. all the ingredients and the presentation were good, but the balance of the plate was awry. it had a quinoa and cauli base instead of rice (good), needed more caulk and less quinoa.

I had my daughter's bridal shower in the private room upstairs--perfect, in every way! We had 27 people and could accommodate 20 more. The room has high cathedral ceiling with windows and glass doors on two sides. It was a very hot humid day but with large ceiling fans and doors open to the balconies we were very comfortable with...

Lively atmosphere, outdoor or indoor seating. Fantastic coconut mojito! Lobster spring roll was disappointing but fresh scallops were very good. Good service. Will come again.

Love the decor of this place, the food was on the healthy side if you wanted that, and very tasty...maybe a bit pricey, but it was an enjoyable experience.

We were seated outside, and it was very crowded with happy, hungry, talkative people. I was just in the mood for quiet, so we asked to be seated indoors. This made all the difference in the world. The service was good, the food was very tasty and the presentation great. The waiter took our orders and special instructions, and everything... More

Just had dinner at this restaurant recommended by several friends, and we were very impressed. Casual, eclectic atmosphere, very good service, and an enticing menu. Shrimp and grits was an unusual offering in New England, but out of this world in taste! The swordfish special was outstanding as was the dessert. We overheard several other nearby patrons commenting on how... More

I had read good reviews of Salvation Cafe and I'm glad we went! It's a quirky looking, unassuming place with good service and delicious food. They were able to modify my gluten and dairy free diet by modifying the entree, which I always appreciate! Our server was friendly and pleasant and did her best to accommodate, going between the chef... More

We were attracted by the signage outside and the recommendations of our hosts. When we first arrived we were surprised by how empty the front bar was and we were actually surprised by the big back room and outside patio. Initially we were unimpressed with the very limited menu, but we forged ahead and ordered the lobster spring rolls which... More

This has always been my favorite restaurant in Newport. Unfortunately, my last trip here was disappointing. The beat salad was mediocre and the recipe changed. It used to be the best beet salad, can't imagine why you'd change it to make it like everyone else does. The Pad Thai had all dark meat chicken, but the chicken was very fatty... More

With its interesting name I was curious as to what sort of place this would be and I was not disappointed. Retro artsy decor with colorful staff made this a perfect choice for dinner. The menu was varied and healthy with fresh ingredients and able to be modified for singular tastes. I had the beet salad with salmon on top,... More
