“Put This on Your "Must' List!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We felt fortunate reservations were available, as this is a small restaurant. It's quiet, quaint, and offers outstanding food. Service was very good, and good selection of wines. Our dinner for two including one exceptional salad, a glass of wine each came to appx. $ 80. Reasonable. We felt this was a great "local's" restaurant, as it was still very busy,weekdays after Labor Day, when many of the restaurants had closed for a mini vacation after the busy summer and long holiday weekend. Definitely on our "must return" list!

“Excellent Food Preparation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Newmans is a small restaurant so make reservations ahead of time. The menu is limited with a couple of daily specials. Both my wife and I had the prawns which were quite large and prepared nicely. Staff was quite friendly including the restaurant's owner. This would be a special occasion place to eat. Good wine list.

“Elegance in a cozy setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

You pull up to this small looking house with very limited parking but you step in and are immediately greeted and taken to your table. The service is attentive without being overly oppressive, the wine selection is very good with a knowledgeable staff to guide your your selection. The food is a blend of French Italian with a diverse selection that should provide an option for everyone. The food was excellent, I had the Lamb Chops and the texture and flavors were perfect!

“Wonderful Little Spot With Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

The food was just great as was the service. Our server was quite knowledegable and made nice wine and food suggestions. We were also asked still or sparkling water and were promptly told the sparkling was San Pelligrino & was $3.75 a bottle.
The lamb was just delicious! The food was straightforward and perfectly prepared.
The only reason I did not give them a five is that the seating and entry are tight.

“Excellent dinner location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Newman's holds itself out as Italian and French and its menu is largely just that. Good variety of choices. The ravioli (wild local mushroom) was wonderful. All five entrees of our group were well received. Desserts were particularly enjoyable as well. Only downside was that while excellent, the Sancerre supply ran out.
