    5 stars, you have to be exceptional. I wasn't Wow'ed but I was absolutely pleased and got the food and service that I expected for the price. If I had a disappointment, it would be that the food wasn't served piping hot. (Personal preference)

    We will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the staff was delightful. Good meal suggestions by our waitress. We are purchasing a Newport Restaurant card because we loved it so much. We did not eat in the enclosed patio because we felt it would be cold, but when walking through it, it was toasty. This restaurant also has a beautiful view.

    For years, your menu remained unchanged. Now it seems to change from week to week. You should add a ceviche or poke option.

    We had the special scallops and squash risotto with mushrooms which was excellent. One of us had the shrimp and scallop scampi and is always a favorite dish. I had the fish and chips and thru were excellent. Fish was render and not greeay at all and fries were tasty.
