Diner Reviews
  • "Very attractively and delicious food. Service very pleasant but no very professional"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Had requested a table outside. When we arrived we were seated inside with no comment about our request. The food is very good here, although the menu has not changed all summer and there were no specials. The service was below average. When our drinks were served we were immediately asks to order our dinner. We asked for some time. The waiter disappeared for far too long. Once the order was placed, we had to chase down the waiter to ask for simple things like bread, refill on water, opportunity to order wine with dinner, etc."

  • "Although the setting is really beautiful, our server was too busy, food was not prepared as requested for 3 out of 5 people and we were seated under a speaker where the music was too loud. Our table was also in a path that was too tight, one of us had to move because we were bumped so many times. For the prices you pay here, the entire experience should be great, not just the view."

  • "Nice place. Great views of Newport across the bay. Food choices- eclectic . Maybe a tad too for my tastes, but good."

  • "Watermelon cucumber soup and beet ravioli appetizers were good. Roast chicken, hangar steak and cod fritters, were done well and tasty. Service was attentive, although marred by credit card machine breakdown that delayed departure."

  • "Took my wife here for an important occasion and had one of the best fine dining meals of my life. I have eaten at some of the world's finest restaurants and would put plantation at the bay is in the top ten"

  • "This restaurant located in a neighborhood inn was a pleasant surprise. There was a nice selection of wine, appetizers and entrees on the menu. We started with the raw bar sampler which was served with three different sauces plus Tabasco to spice things up. Our entrees were delicious and nicely presented. Service was excellent and special attention was paid to our gluten-free diets. We dined here before going to the Newport Music Festival for an evening of opera. We would go back again!"

  • "Ambiance is nothing special, but the view is beautiful. Food ranged from very good to just good. Server was very pleasant and attentive enough. Most items on the menu are expensive so we probably would not go there again soon."

  • "This restaurant, in the Bay Voyage Inn in Jamestown, was fairly recently reopened so we tried it on a Friday night. The view, as before, is lovely...the dining room overlooks the East Passage of Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor. The service was friendly and welcoming. I had the raw bar/seafood sampler which was outstanding...the ceviche was especially delicious. I had the tuna wonton pocket as a main dish and it was great. Our guests were preparing for a half marathon the next day so they had corn soup and the mushroom ravioli which they thoroughly enjoyed. My wife had the brochettes which were lovely. We will be coming back soon!"

  • "Dinner for 6 - beautiful view of the bay and bridge. Dinner orders were delayed to an extreme. One member did not like her soup and no one checked to confirm her satisfaction. Those who hadn't ordered apps were famished by the time the meals arrived. I chose a soup and 2 appetizers in place of 1 entree. Each dish was delicious, creative, and beautiful: cold melon cucumber soup, yellowfin spring rolls, and beet ravioli (with no pasta, thin beet layers stuffed with cheese). Distinctive in every way. Once the managers came over to apologize, very generous efforts were made to compensate for the difficult evening. We'll have to come back at a quieter time and enjoy. My fabulous food and the managers' kindness are powerful inducements."

  • "They advertise as "farm to table" And call themselves a "boutique" restaurant. Sadly, this was a huge disappointment. Food was average at best. Sea food options were farm-raised. Corn was GMO. Server seemed annoyed that I required gluten-free options."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Food very good. Had the cod loin and thought it was prepared excellently. Love the sesame crusted tuna appetizer which was not on the menu this evening. Thought the wine list was rather thin with few , if any , French wines ,ie , Chateauneuf du Pape , Italian Piedmont Wines, Barolo, Nebbiolo, and more Pinot Noirs from Russian River Valley in California. The evening was relaxing, ambience outstanding and all in all, a wonderful dining experience"

  • "The food was really, really good and all 6 of us enjoyed our meals and drinks. Our waitress was attentive, nice and informative. The part that was lacking was the ambiance. The dining room looks like they didn't change it at all and has the look of a tired hotel banquet room. Something as simple as some new chairs might help. It is too bad the ambiance doesn't match the quality of the food because it would really be a wining combination."

  • "This restaurant is such a gem. Beautiful views, lovely dining room, fabulous food preparation. In order to have repeat business appeal, I would make two suggestions. Attention to ambience (be sure that window boxes next to porch seats are decorated), and a varied menu that includes nightly specials on a regular basis.This is our second visit and the food has been terrific. We'd like to see this restaurant around for a long time!"

  • "After a bit of a wait when we were seated, which was promptly remedied with the smiling young server's offer of a free round of drinks, we enjoyed everything Plantation at the Bay had to offer. Friendly staff, delicious food and drink, great ambiance and view of the Newport Bridge from my seat-Thank you for making our anniversary a special one!"

  • "The waitstaff was friendly. But, the restaurant smelled musty and the food was absolutely terrible. The bread was hard, the flatbread appetizer was basically a frozen DiGiorno's pizza with some basil sprinkled atop, and the vegetables tasted like the well water they were boiled in. The wine list was tiny, and the wine was stale. Despite the lovely scenery, I'm never going back here, unfortunately. It was well overpriced for the quality of food."

  • "The dining experience was positive the moment we walked in. It was positive, pleasant, warm and cozy. There was a warm flow throughout . Everyone there on the team couldn't do enough for us.. The other customers were just as welcoming. Plantation on the Bay casts a spell on you the moment you walk in... The food was outstanding!!!! We will be back and letting everyone we know how much we enjoyed the experience.. "

  • "So glad we finally made it to this new addition to the Jamestown dining scene. Friday night we enjoyed the dining room experience and the great waterview with friends. Everyone's meal was delicious and the service was friendly and great. I'm looking forward to trying the tavern venue as well. Though we live in Jamestown, it's well worth the drive over for those who don't. "

  • "Great service by Jessica Food tasty and beautifully presented Hostess young and easily thrown when we arrived 45 min early for reservation Did offer us a table ( we were ok with sitting at bar to wait) but seemed unsure, didn't greet us enthusiastically and long allergy note in open table reservation didn't seem to have been shared with server or chef. Regardless experience was good!"

  • "Had a small celebration for my daughter who, graduated law school that day and wanted to take her and her partner out for a special dinner. Based on reviews in one table as well as their having a reservation available at the time we desired, we tried Plantation on the Bay. The restaurant is located in a mansion converted into a resort overlooking Narraganset Bay and Newport. Unfortunately, the evening turned out to be very stormy and although we could easily see the potential of the view it wasn't too enjoyable for us. However, the friendliness of the staff combined with incredibly attentive service and superb dishes easily made up for the bad weather outside!"

  • "We ended up going there for a wine tasting event as part of URI's Big Chill weekend, which unfortunately was held in a room way too small for the number of people attending and no one had the opportunity to move more than 1 foot to even talk to another person. Courtesy of the small availability of food hors d'oeuvres we made reservations to the restaurant for dinner. The food was eclectic and tasty. We had calamari for appetizer which was tasty but on the salty side and everyone at the table liked their dishes. Our only complaint was on the draft that seemed to be coming from some place even though we were not seated close to any doors."

  • "Went to the Thursday night special: 2 dinners for $35 (incl bottle of wine). Had a great steak, my husband had pasta bolognese -- both excellent! Have been before and will go again...also great light bar menu on all other days. Lucky to have Plantation's delicious food though the 'dead' of winter here in Jamestown!"

  • "We attended for a Monday Night 2 for $30. Had attended a cocktail gathering previous to that. It was a slow night. Vry comfortable. Sat in the southern small room with two other tables of people. Food was good, we both had chicken. The salad we ordered extra, thought it expensive for what it was and a little bland. Dressing not notable. But total price for two was fine. We live in Jamestown and will return. It is a nice addition - clean, friendly and scenic! We had been there previously pre Christmas. It was very loud. There was a noisy table not far from us in the large, full dining room."
