  • "I took my wife here for her birthday and we both had a great time. The food was very well presented and the portion sizes were perfect. I can safely say that we ate the BEST scallops and swordfish EVER at this restaurant. The drinks were excellent and the wait staff were very professional and always accommodating."

  • "Safari room is a lovely restaurant inside a beautiful Newport Irish Castle. Food was great with some unusual items such as foie gras stuffed morel mushrooms. Was looking forward to their advertised beef wellington, however, it was a filet placed upon a small pastry with a onion/fig center. Was looking forward to the traditional beef wellington. Service was a little lame and not fitting with the ambience..."

  • "This is an enjoyable experience for a couple or a group of good friends. The menu provided a broad selection of choices. From salad to desert, the food was delicious. We will be back with more friends in tow."

  • "Winter lunch experience over-all positive. Remarkable view especially on a sunny day. Attentive waiter. One member of party of three said the dessert was the best he had ever ordered. All felt the lunch was highly overpriced. World travelers with much dining experience. Would come again for the view and the lovely building. The ladies found either no soap or a non-working dispenser in the women's lounge. We did follow the Safari Room sign to the left which must be the summer entrance as it was closed. Then went around to find the main door. Found the dining area on our own after entering as no one was there to greet us."

  • "My husband and I recently went to the Safari Room for a couples night out without our two children, and it was exactly what we needed. The food was amazing, the staff was great, and the ambience was nice and quiet. We are definitely going back for another dinner soon."

  • "Fall during a weekday is not the time to go. They have a very limited menu now that it is off season. Looks like it would have been fun during the summer. Glad they had heat lamps that worked."

  • "Anniversary Dinner was made even more special! Everyone at the restaurant went out of their way to make sure that the night was perfect, even going so far as to give us complimentary champagne! The appetizers were excellent, especially the lobster bisque which was served table side. The salmon dish and the steak au poivre were prepared perfectly. Our waiter was attentive, but never made us feel hurried. Overall it could not have been a better dining experience. The views of Narragansett Bay, with the Newport Bridge lit up in the background added to the wonderful ambiance."

  • "We wanted to check it out for the location but it was dark when we arrived so we missed the vista. Maybe we'll try it another time. I read the reviews about slow service and can understand why. We sat 15 minutes before we had to go ask for a server. A guy who works at the bar took us on and did a great job in the absense of a "real" server. Rare tuna was delish, loved the fresh soft pretzel app, my pasta was ok."

  • "5 of us all enjoyed very different meals. Food was excellent. Service was a little amateur Waiter started to clear before all were finished. He knew little about wines. No nothing about wine. Young nice for the type of place & prices they need more experienced professional waiters. However I would return."
