    My wife and I loved this place. We came here on a visit to Newport last year, and loved it then. Came back again this year, and loved it even more. Best seafood chowder I've ever had, anywhere. But really, every dish was top-notch. And great ambiance - quite, tasteful, with attentive and perfectly-timed service. If we come to Newport nest year, we'll be sure to stop in here.

    We have been to One Bellevue several times over the past 4 years. We had a great meal once, the other times were mixed. The last dinner was good everything was okay, I ordered the bacon wrapped filet, It was cooked perfectly but the meat seemed tough for a filet so I was disappointed. The side dishes were good I had a glass of house melbec, it was $15 a glass seemed a little expensive and not a very good melbec.

    A bit expensive for the quality of the food. Both the tuna app and entree were overcooked...the cod was very good, not great, and dessert choices were just so so for a high end hotel restaurant. Oh, my credit card was actually authorized twice for the same amounts and while they both posted to my account it was credited back to me, so all was good.

    Dined on 4/13/2013
    We wanted to check out the list of Restaurant Week menu lunches and hit some of the more upscale places that we normally wouldn't go to. With the great deals of Restaurant Week, One Bellevue looked like a place to check out. I'll admit I didn't know it was within the Hotel Viking, so felt a little embarrassed walking around the building with my date. With pre-conceived expectations of Restaurant Week 3-course meals, we expected small portions. We were surprised at how large the soup, salad, pizza, and sandwich were, and equally amazed at how delicious it tasted. We had no choice but to bring home leftovers, but certainly weren't complaining.

    Room, concierge, valet top notch! 1 Bellevue (for the sake of brevity I must be blunt) Wedding and lounge guitarist created an awful din. Waited and hour for our meal. No bread, Just noise. Next day, bride's family held court in sm dining room. No peace. (segregate them in the future) Federico and our server ABSOLUTELY saved the evening (my wife's 50th) They moved us to a somewhat quieter corner, took care of some of our meal then brought a b-day dessert to us. We will come again as long as they are still there. Otherwise I'd be very hesitant to eat there during a function. Hat's off to Fed and the wait staff that showed up. My wife loved High tea, head waiter was great. Everyone else needs a slap. Regards, Joe Wallace 617-777-8510

    We dined at One Bellevue to celebrate our anniversary. We are both foodies, which is why we carefully reviewed the menu and shared everything we got so we both could experience the variety. We started off at the bar for a drink, made well with friendly staff. We were then seated in the dining room for dinner. Table for two, nice ambiance, small and quiet for the most part. Butternut squash soup, warm spinach salad, Scallop special, Sirloin steak and a bottle of Sterling Merlot. FANTASTIC! The flavor and taste of everything was cooked and prepared well. Absolutely no complaints...we would dine here again. There was even some live music in the bar that had us bopping our heads by the end of dinner. Wonderful experience!

    This review is only for the afternoon tea and breakfast as we did not eat dinner here. Both the tea and breakfast were great! The afternoon tea was reasonably priced for a nice restaurant - you can add on champagne cocktails for an extra charge. The food was delicious - we particularly liked the scones with lemon curd. The ambiance at One Bellevue is lovely as well - very peaceful and relaxing. Both our server and the maitre'd (Dan) did a fantastic job - the service was impeccable. We also ate at One Bellevue for breakfast. We went with the buffet option, but they also have an ala carte menu. We really enjoyed the buffet as well - they had a delicious omelet station with lots of choices, and fantastic freshly baked goods!

    Visited the hotel in early January for an off season get away. For dinner, the restaurant was not busy or crowded this time of year. The quality of the food was exceptional, featuring subtle layers of flavor with attention to texture and presentation. Knowledge and attentiveness of waitstaff was exemplary. Took waiter's recommendations on wine and was not disappointed. One of the better meals we have had. As for cost: three martinis, two glasses of wine, 2 special salads, crab cakes, one cod entree came to $124 before tip. Very reasonable for the quality of service and food. Breakfasts were good, but about average for upper end hotels.

    Great food. Main course arrival was a little slow but I don't mind that very much in a restaurant like this. The band, however, was horrible. Too loud and Off key. Plus they used computer generated music like a karaoke bar. It rurned me off completely. How about a real bass player, pianist lr deummer. Lady Gaga is great at a dance club but at this location I wanted a jazz type of band. I do plan to visit the Viking again but will call first to find out about music. If it's anything like this I will pass. I did stay overnight and left the building after dinner in the cold to find real music just down the street. I had planned to hang out at the hotel bar but couldn't Tolerate the band or lack of talent.

    Excellent menu, with well-executed dishes. Service inattentive and slow the evening we dined there. At least 15 minutes lapsed between seating and the first time the waiter appeared so we could order drinks. Even then, I had to engage the maitre de first. That pretty much set the standard for the rest of the meal. The food was good, but the lack luster service and very noisy adjacent bar make it unlikely we'll eat there again.

    Went during restaurant week. Best meal we've had for $30.00. The regular menu looked good and the dishes we saw from that menu were appealing. One advantage is the complimentary valet parking with dinner. Wine list was typical but pricey. Service was prompt, efficient and courteous. Will go back again when in Newport.

    It would be unfair to base a trip to this restaurant on our experience. We dined here as Hurricane Sandy was beginning it's landfall. The place was deserted! Unfortunately, being the only couple there did not speed up the service at all. Perhaps the staff was glued to the weather reports? In any case, the food was good, we were in no hurry and the location was ideal. Would definitely recommend a visit here!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004

    What a find for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted promptly and given our choice of tables. We chose to sit outside in the lovely garden patio. The warm evening was perfect. The gas fireplace nearby added to the ambience. Our waiter was attentive and offered suggestions that helped us make up our minds. He told us that the chef's specialties were the clam chowder and the rack of lamb, both of which I ordered. They were both excellent. The chowder was not too thick but nicely filled with chunks of lobster as well as clams, etc. The 2 double thick lamb chops were done perfectly. No room for dessert for us. In a town full of wonderful restaurants, One Bellevue is worth another visit.
