This cozy restaurant makes the most of every square inch, and doesn't feel crowded. We arrived just before the dinner crowd. I wish I had asked the waitress's name -- she greeted everyone with delight and maintained the perfect level of interaction with customers as more and more of them arrived. We had "regular" size bowls of crab cioppino. A... More

The restaurant is small and quite busy but well worth the wait. The staff are great but the food is extraordinary the Cioppino was the best I've ever had and my wife was thrilled with the Shark Curry. A must stop in Newport.

Wife and I have been to almost all of the restaurant up and down the street and this one by far gives you the best value with reasonably priced, good portioned, top quality fare. We really appreciate the no-fried seafood menu.

I have been going to Shark's for a few years now. I particularly like the cioppino there. The woman that serves us, she may be the owner, is always friendly, has great recommendations and we enjoy seeing her very much. I've never had room for dessert but they do have a very nice fruit platter. The bread that comes with... More

Sharks is by far my favorite restaurant in the US, if not the world. I have been coming here for at least 10 + years and the food is always the same, superb quality. Freshly steamed. Nothing fried or baked. I recommend the Cioppino (a 20 on a scale of 10) although my recent stay at Newport I ate 4/5... More

We went on a Saturday evening, everywhere had long waits except we got in here straight way, the (owner)? greeted us at the door, extremely friendly, this is a very small place, just a few tables.

We chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews, but we were a bit disappointed. The decor was very dated, which would have been alright if the food had been up to par. I had the cioppino. It tasted and looked like spaghetti sauce, which I did not care for, but there was a fair amount of shrimp and fish. Not... More

Here we go exaggerating. The price you stated is just plain wrong. An oyster dinner is only $22.95 and a fish entree is $29.95 Sorry you had bad experience. Btw:Our cioppino was rated best in West along with three others. So it cant be all that bad. Have only served 60,000 bowls.LOL More
