We stopped in Newport on our way to NYC and wanted a place that offered fresh seafood and food for the non-fish-love, and the Red Parrot satisfies that well. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed with lots of wood over three floors. The menu was extensive with lots of options. In fact the biggest issue was choosing how to have lobster. I ended up with Monsta' Lobsta' BLT. Served between thin focaccia it was piled high with chunks of fresh lobster. Two friends ordered from the raw bar and were served 8 large oysters for 16 bucks. The lobster ravioli was tasty, albeit very heavy. The pasta dishes are generally good for two. Service was friendly and not too fast, but that served us well because we were not in a rush. Will definitely be going back next time in town.

The Red Parrot has one of the most extensive, creative menus of fun food you'll see. The food is very reasonable as well. If you enjoy lobster, just a couple of options are a lobster quesadilla or a generous lobster salad in a tortilla bowl. Many, many seafood options. My husband and I enjoy the Red parrot several times during the summer.

A first visit to the Red Parrot will be followed by others, I hope. A day trip to Rhode Island for a tour of the stately old mansions there led us to this restaurant for lunch. It's a bit pricey....$12-$15 for a hamburger....but the food was superb and the portions were generous. The service was excellent as well.....water glasses refilled without having to search for a server, being asked if refills of coffee or soft drinks were wanted, extra napkins provided promptly. I certainly will go there again.

Outstanding everything! Our waiter (Dineen) was amazing! He is a class act-provided stupendous service!! Food was delicious. We have lived in New England for over 50 years and the Calamari was the best we have ever had. If you are visiting Newport-don't miss this gem!

The drinks were a good size and reasonably priced. The food was good and over priced. The coconut shrimp was very good, but we could have used a few more!
