I chose this restaurant based on the reviews and the menu for our trip to Newport. I soon found out I was not the only one, and could not get a reservation for the day/time we wanted. Not willing to change my first choice, we opted to have a late lunch at around 3:00 pm rather than go somewhere else. We were not disappointed! From start to finish, everything was perfect. Our server, Lisa, was friendly, funny, and professional all at the same time. We had the highly recommended Bag of Doughnuts, which are delicious, but VERY filling, even shared between three of us. We also had the Scallops Wellington - fabulous. Entrees were swordfish, seafood pasta, and the lobster croissant. All the food appeared to be hand crafted as well as the cocktails, with fresh fruit. As you have probably read, the Seafood Pasta is not what you would expect (and get elsewhere). There is a generous amount of seafood! My daughter was taking a photo of her plate to post; our server said it always looks the same, so I would say it would be a good pick. If we are fortunate enough to travel to Newport again, I will be planning our dinner reservation ahead at The Mooring.
