“Fine hotel dining”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

While Newport offers a wide variety of dining choices Fathoms at the Marriott is worth considering. The fish is excellent, especially the salmon which is best when simply grilled. The wine list is well chosen but pricey ( what restaurant doesn't have a large markup?) and wines by the glass offer a choice of 6 ounces or 9 ounces. The service is good. If possible get a seat at the window so you can look out on the water and watch the boats.

“Good food and convenient”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the hotel three nights while in town for a wedding. We ate in the restaurant three times, initially because the two year old is impatient. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Breakfast is a bit pricey, but there are many items and a buffet. Our lunch was eaten at the bar. (I really enjoyed the calamari.) We ate a late breakfast here the last morning. We brought a b-day cake with us. The staff served it, and the presentation included chocolate sauce and strawberries. What a nice way to end our stay.

Thank Brenda W

“loved this place”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We came here 3 times during our stay and brought friends with us on one occasion. Everything we tried was superb. We especially enjoyed the scallops, the tuna melt, and the seafood pasta. Service is quick and courteous. Wonderful view from many tables. Highly recommended.

“Great bargains excellent food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Don't overlook this wonderful hotel restaurant! Its a hidden gem. Many two for the price of one specials including lobster (usually on Tuesdays). Our favorite when in-town restaurants are over crowded.

“Pretty Good Hotel Restaurant”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

The restaurant inside the Marriott with a standard fare on its menu. Good seafood along with decent salads, soups, desserts and other entrees. Large enough to accommodate groups yet small enough to allow seating for two by the window looking out on the harbor. Good bar with a decent crowd on weekends. Professional and efficient wait staff.
