“Wonderful Fresh Food!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

I had freshly caught halibut last night that was excellent. Beautifully presented and wonderfully cooked. What a treat!!!!. Small place but lots of atmosphere. Only one complaint was the service was a little on the slow side. Fairly good wine list. I would go back there in a heartbeat.

“Lovely place with fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had a great meal there recently. While the service was a little slow that evening, the food was wonderful. The fish was so fresh as were the vegetables. The server and the owner were very pleasant. It's a great place to go for a quiet meal and a very nice dining experience!

“Best restaurant in Newport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Spent several days in Newport at Elizabeth St. Inn, in March and went to Alice's on recommendation of the hotel clerk. What a nice surprise. Unassuming from the outside but very charming inside. Small but large on friendly staff and quality of food. Within walking distance of several hotels in the area and just steps off Nye beach.

We arrived without a reservation and was able to be seated, however reservations are highly recommended. We began with the bruschetta appetizer served with their delicious bread. The scallops were simply delicious, in fact all the food was very fresh and upscale. You will not be disappointed in this quaint little restaurant and of course the dress is casual. Be sure to go next time you're in Newport.

“Local produce, delicious food and wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

This restaurant is one of those rare finds that just makes me smile. April uses vegetables and herbs from a nearby farm she runs. All the seafood and meats are locally sourced as well. And, she is an excellent chef, so the fresh ingredients are shown off at their best. This is a warm, small restaurant with many window seats, and large windows and a lot of light. The atmosphere is quaint with an old country feel.

And the food is marvelous. We started with a beet salad. The beets were just the right balance between soft and crunchy. The greens were plentiful and tasty. The goat cheese was delicious. The hazel nuts were missing, which we didn't bother telling the server until after we finished it. Carol is allergic to them anyway. But they would have brought them and the server was apologetic.

Carol had the fresh salmon. This was a surprisingly large piece and grilled to perfection. Dark grill marks on the surface, and juicy and tender on the inside. The meal was served with a medley of fresh greens and vegetables. We like vegetables, so it was great to see them featured. Too often vegetables are an afterthought at even the best restaurants.

I had the shrimp scampi. These were a generous portion of large shrimp in a delicious white wine and butter sauce. Capers added a delicious note, and the medley of fresh greens and vegetables was wonderful.

We were very satisfied, but the desserts sounded too good to pass up. We shared a cream puff that was huge, filled with scrumptious cream, covered in a chocolate shell, and piled with whipped cream.

The wine list is decent both by the glass and even more so by the bottle. We thought the price was quite reasonable for this high quality of food and experience.

“Delicious dinner at April's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Sweet, small restaurant with good service and great food. Had the bruschetta appetizer with their wonderful bread and a delicious balsamic syrup. Enjoyed the fresh Chinook salmon (cooked perfectly) with a delicious curry sauce.
