When we first discovered 839 a few years ago, we really liked it and were impressed by their originality in Newport. Now however, it appears as though the excitement and passion has gone out of the place. What was once an interesting tapas menu, is tired and doesn't have great quality food items. The drink menu doesn't appear to have changed in years, and the entire place is starting to look grubby. Service is fine, but not what it once was. A deep clean and a little creativity is necessary to turn this place around from what appears to be a downward slide.
