Went for brunch on Sunday, first time visiting, and was not impressed. The customer service has lots of way to go and learn on the side of the waiter. I had the Asparagus omelet which was nothing impressive. Mimosa was good. Would I go back or recommend? Nope

This lovely outdoor seating overlooking the marina was delightful. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset as we dined on delicious food and wine. There is also a very large inviting outdoor bar which is a popular spot for an afternoon cool delight on a summer day. It is located behind the boutique hotel but open to the public. Because it is...

I spend my summers in Newport RI and have become increasingly impressed with Forty 1 North throughout this summer season. The property is beautiful with wonderful interiors and attention to the small details and amenities that elevate Forty 1 North to the premier upscale property in Newport. The outdoor bar pavilion is the perfect place for a specialty cocktail or... More

We went to The Grill for my nieces birthday dinner tonight. The setting is lovely but that's all that this restaurant has going for it. We were only one of three tables occupied and still had terrible service. The corn chowder was good however the serving equates to about a quarter cup for $14, the crab balls and calamari were...

Beautiful and trendy atmosphere, with water and yacht views. Open air dining. Nice menu, with really delicious food. If you're put off by snooty show- offy people this is not your place. If you can, ignore them, and enjoy the food and the view. Our server was very sweet but was not trained at all. She tried her best. I... More

First time visit did not disappoint! Started with the Crab & Corn Chowder which was delicious. the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna was awesome. Top it off with the location and it's now at the top of my list for the next visit.

Stopped by for a late dinner with friends; decided to splurge on a caviar plate and it blew us away! Added some raw bar sautéed lobster and a steak and it was an unbelievable meal! The music was great; so was the dancing after dinner. Great crowd, great view, great service and excellent food!

This was one of two waterfront fine dining restaurants we ate at and we much preferred the service and the food at The Moorings. This one is pretentious and all about the scene and less about the food. Just go for the water view and drinks and over- the- top- trendy servers and waitstaff and decor, inside and out, but...
