“Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

First of all, sit at the Chef's Counter and watch the meals being prepared. We went for lunch and it was a treat! Outstanding menu selections, altho mostly seafood if that is an issue to you. But oh my. So perfectly prepared and so beautifully presented. Even for lunch. Not inexpensive for lunch but well worth it.

“Excellent seafood in Newport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is really the best place to eat in Newport - delicious fresh fish, thoughtful wine list, terrific service. Even the 40 minute wait wasn't bothersome - time to explore Newport's sweet bay front area.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our first visit to Newport and thought we would try this place. We had a twenty minute wait but it was well worth it. W had the crab cakes, rockfish salad and the halibut. Delicious ! I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. Fresh ingredients and fantastic creative dishes. This place is a must. We even had lunch the next day on are way out of town. Fish and chips and the rockfish salad. We will be back!

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We waited for about 20 minutes for an early dinner, but it was worth the wait. The Dungenous Crab Soup was excellent. The Cooks were hustling, preparing the food and at the same time making the people at the bar feel welcome. The waitress was attentive and our drinks quickly refilled. Food was excellent. We're returning tomorrow!

“Somewhat disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I come from Florida and like to sample the fish of the region. they had it. We ate hear based upon the reviews and was disappointed with the menu. Mind you, I prefer to taste the seafood and not have it overly smothered with cilantro and other spices and sauces. To find a simple seafood dish I had the Rockfish, which is Pacific Cod fish and chips. I wasn't disappointed with the food. just the selection. I thought a little pricey since the place is small and we were seated next to the open area kitchen.
