It is restaurant week in newport so we decided to give it a try, even though we heard mixed reviews about The Grill. First it's $10 to park. It's November in newport not July. The atmosphere is very nice and the view is killer. The service was very good but overall not on par for level they want to be on. The food was fine but nothing to write home about. The dishes were under seasoned. The pumpkin cheesecake dessert was good but the chocolate cake (they took a big liberty in calling it a cake) was poor. But the thing that left a bad taste in my mouth was the $4.50 cup of coffee for me and my wife. So I spent $9 on 2 small cups of coffee. At that price you better check if I want my coffee warmed up, but not once. Last time. I should have realized because their other restaurant Christies isn't much better. They must realize it, it's restaurant week and the dining room was just 50% full.
