Had dinner with another couple on a Thursday night. Seated on first level where you can see water and people watch. Great location and good service, maybe a little too good as I felt our waiter hovered. Anyway, for apps we ordered the wedge salad, 1 head of lettuce easily could be split by 2 people, with tomatoes, red onion,... More

Where to begin? Great location, professional service, outstanding Del Monaco, but when you pay over $200 for dinner for two one would expect the baked potato ($8, by the way) to be cooked and the creamed spinach (also $8) to be flavorful and hot. I only gave them a three rating because they have placed the bar high with their... More

Enjoyed seafood and a relaxing evening. One of the nicest restaurants in Newport. A bit pricey but a great splurge if you can do it. Been here several times over the years and always consistently good

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant as we strolled around Newport on our first day. It was very hot that afternoon, and we were drawn to the upstairs balcony in search of shade and a cool breeze. We also enjoyed a view of the dock, and watched people and boats come and go. The service was friendly and... More

Ate here before a sailing trip and found the food and atmosphere to be great and exciting. The staff was attentive and food was delicious, try the calamari !! Very good offering of craft beers as well. We hope to return late summer for a repeat !!

We had excellent service. Happy to see our favorite scotch on their menu. Food was okay. I've had much better at a lot cheaper. The goat cheese polenta fries were quite tasty but my clam pasta was bitter and underwhelming.

We were in Newport for a few days to attend a wedding. We decided to eat here on our first night in Newport, because we have heard very good things. From start to finish, everything was great. Our server , Will, was one of the better servers we have ever had in a restaurant. We started with the charcuterie plate,... More

Pros: decent waiter, very good cold seafood appetizer, good cocktails. Cons: 2 of the 3 dinners were not hot when we goth them even though we specifically said that was important. Sides also just warm. Tenderloin not so tender. Flavor was good but couldn't fully enjoy it. When you spend $300 on dinner for three it should be excellent.

Newport is one of our annual weekend getaways and we've been to 22 Bowen's many times. Unfortunately, it just wasn't that great this visit. The restaurant is in a fabulous location on Bowen's Wharf. We ate outside which was perfect for people and dog watching. We had an early reservation so the restaurant was quiet when we arrived, packed when... More
