Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second visit. Based on a friend's strong recommendation, my wife had the swordfish. It was excellent, cooked to the just right degree of doneness, but my wife was expecting some sort of special flavor treatment based on the friend's recommendation. I had the Bolognese which was very thick and tasty but could have used a tad more heat for my taste. However, that is not a complaint; I love Bolognese and would readily order it again. By the time we had finished the appetizers and main course, we were so full we had to take our dessert home. I am sure this is a very lively place during "the season" what with outdoor dining and bars, but like most locals we avoid the Newport waterfront when the summer crowds arrive."

  • "The food here is wonderful. Really. Our whole group really enjoyed the meals, especially the desserts. But, problem was it was SOOOOO loud at our first table, we asked to be moved. We literally couldn't hear each other or the waiter. Staff quickly and kindly accommodated our group and we moved to the back room, corner table, which was much quieter. Issue was - it was so dark we couldn't see our meals. No joke - our table at one point broke out the iphone flashlight app to see what was on the plate. Overall experience - 6. Was really hoping for an 8 or 9."

  • "Without a doubt a real disappointment after several good meals. Two of our three meals were deducted from the bill as they were unsatisfactory. The entire evening was below standard. The serving staff offered our three meals to three different tables until they landed with us. The meals, at that point, were cold and the cod was so tough that we couldn't eat it...and the chicken piccata was unacceptable. Even the restaurant manager said that the cod had been a problem for them. With the competition in the area it seems to be that they have to improve their game to match what other people are doing."

  • "Quiet night so noise level was low, not sure how it is when its busy. Had the swordfish and risotto and both were great."

  • "The Deck had some of the best food I have ever tasted, and the presentation was fantastic. I was not pleased with the service at all. Our waiter did not have good communication with my spouse and I, also when the credit card machine failed, he let us wait for 25 minutes until my husband asked him why the wait. I was also misguided by the $50 valentines day dinner package. I went expecting it to be between $50-$65 and it turned out to be $85. Overall, the meal was good but I was not impressed with the staff or miscommunicated information. It's too bad because the food was fantastic but unless accommodated I will not support this business."

  • "Tried out @ The Deck last weekend. It's in a nice location (right on Waite's Wharf) with a great view of the water. The Deck had a low-key atmosphere, but that could be due to the off-season. My party of four all opted for the prix fixe menu, which I assume is only offered during special events. Regardless, the food was excellent. We started with lobster stuffies and French onion soup. For my main entree, I grabbed a seared swordfish steak over risotto. The swordfish was cooked to perfection, and the risotto was delicious. For desert, I tried the tiramisu, which was very sweet and a little rich, but still rather good. I would absolutely recommend @ The Deck to anyone interested in a relatively inexpensive and pleasant dinner."

  • "Dining on New Year's Eve at a restaurant that is a summertime hot spot was probably not the best idea. The wait staff was top-notch, but the noise level was too much for us. A huge spread of appetizers was provided. I enjoyed the chowder. The best was the plate full of tasty mussels. My swordfish was adequate. A friendly place for folks who want to celebrate!"

  • "I happened on this restaurant on Open Table not knowing where to go when in Newport for a weekend. From beginning to end: superb! Noted on res. that it was our anniversary, and everyone took pains to wish us well. Waiter was spectacular. Offered me tastes of scotch before I selected one; our wine was "iffy" and he immediately took it back and suggested a different (less expensive) one. The scallops and lamb shank were out of this world. Chef came to banter with us, and gave us a recipe. Dessert, a waffle bread pudding came with a lit sparkler and was complimentary. Ambiance: terrific. I can't praise this place enough... and by the way, the prices were extremely reasonable for what we received! Worth the 2 hr. trip to get there!"

  • "Visiting Newport for a quick getaway, stumbled upon restaurant week. Randomly picked The Deck. Made a great choice! Had a wonderful meal, great server, listened to some quiet background music. A very nice evening. My only complaint if that is finding the restaurant in the dark . No sign from the road indicating it's location. We ended up parking in a pay lot down the road and asking directions along the way. Walking down a dark alleyway was a little disconcerting, but we did find our way and had a lovely dinner."

  • "I would not recommed this restaurant to anyone. The food, seating, and odor needs too be addressed. I hope their outdoor seating is better in the summmer."

  • "We had not been back since April, but it was not up to standard. The restaurant week selections were not as good as usual and the quality fell short."

  • "I am the foodie in the group and make most reservations. I chose The Deck because of the menu they listed for restaurant week. They deleted some options from the menu from the starters. Of the 8 diners, 3 had swordfish which was delicious, however, each person had a different sized portion, one in particular being huge. The scallop entree presented only 3 scallops which left the men a little hungry. Tuna was sent back because it was overcooked, and salmon was just ordinary. The worst part was that they ran out of all of the dessert mouses which were advertised on their restaurant week menu. We were very disappointed. Also, service was slow.."
