Generally there are a lot of outstanding places to eat in Newport. Tavern on Broadway is OK, but nothing special. Their mixed drinks are really good, but their food is average. So in tourist season when you really cannot get in many places, if this...More

I had the arugula salad with quinoa and slivered almonds. With a white balsamic vinegar, it was amazingly good and satisfying. My partner had the lamb sliders which were also good. We had the empanadas as an appetizer but I didn’t enjoy them. They left...More

Nancy, I apologize for your poor experience at our restaurant. We were short staffed for a brief period of time yesterday and obviously service suffered. It doesn't happen often at all, but it was our mistake and we hope you'll give us another try.

Our first time here and not to be our last. Very good menu and bar selections, and our server was great too. We challenged him with all kinds of special F&B requests and he and the kitchen delivered. We'll be back

It may have the best calamari I have ever eaten. We ate it there twice on the same day (one in a food tour then went back for more that night!). The brussel sprouts are also amazing!
