Delicious food and great service. A hidden gem in Newport. We will definitely be back next time we’re in town.
The spot is lovely. The people are friendly and attentive- and flexible: they were able to move our reservation up 45 minutes just 2 hours before!
The food was excellent! I highly recommend the seared Cod and my wife greatly enjoyed the roasted chicken!
Our server was friendly and kind and very attentive. They even treated us to crème brûlée with fresh berries in honor of our anniversary (they noticed it on my Open Table profile). And, the owner/manager came to our table to ask about our meal, etc.
An excellent choice!
A reservation at another restaurant was cancelled at the last minute on our first wedding anniversary. Jo’s had availability and took very good care of us. The staff was friendly, didn’t rush us and they treated us to a complementary dessert. It was our second time there in a week and both the service and the food were fantastic. We highly recommend Jo’s and we’ll be back the next time we’re in Newport!
My husband and I are on a romantic getaway in Newport and went to this restaurant on recommendations from Trip Advisor. We bot shared the kale and asparagus salad, and we both ordered the same entree, seared salmon with shaved Brussels sprouts and ferro. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive. The restaurant is very clean. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Great restaurant off the beaten path. Excellent service and food. Highly recommend.
Our waitress Tara was fantastic. She made some great suggestions that we followed.
My dinner consisted of 5 or 6 scallops creatively presented and they were little pillows cooked to perfection. The fish and chips was exactly what my wife wanted to eat. We split a Caesar salad and the olive oil cake. It sounds weird but the cake was terrific. A nice bottle of Chardonnay, reasonably priced, helped make the night more memorable. Jo’s American Bistro highly recommended. 2 thumbs up!
We did the prix fix items - hanger steak was just ok.
Best scallops I’ve had in any restaurant and they were a generous portion of six! Beef carpaccio appetizer was also excellent.
Excellent service staff. Meal was very good in all respects. Decent vibe. Would definitely dine there again.
Good food, nice staff and good location/atmosphere.
Delicious food and courteous service. The lobster roll, calamari, salmon, hand cut frites and cocktails were excellent.
Food was delicious and waitress was very attentive. Enjoyed it immensely.
One of the best places to eat in Newport. The food is spectacular, the service is top notch and Jo is always so nice and makes sure everything is just right! Keep up the great work!!
The clam chowder was delicious! And I’m glad we saved room for dessert, because the Chocolate Grand Marnier Torte was worth it!
Always very good. Excellent service!
Jo is the ultimate hostess!
Great service and assistance with minor accommodations for ingredient and seasoning preferences.
We made reservations for 7:30. When we arrived early, we were told to have a drink at the bar and they would let us know when our table was ready. We were seated promptly at 7:30 in the balcony. After 10 minutes, I went down to the hostess and asked if a waiter could come to our table. Eventually someone showed up to take our drink order. We had decided that we would leave at 8pm if we didn’t have drinks by then. The waiter arrives with our drinks just as we were leaving. He was quite angry and accused us of not understanding how busy they were. After 30 minutes of patiently waiting for a cocktail, we were concerned that we might never get dinner or that we may have to keep asking for service. The restaurant gets good reviews, but we won’t be back
Excellent all around. Delicious entrees. Attentive service.
Great new find for us in Newport we really loved the place and plan on going back when we are in Newport again.
Friendly and attentive staff; prix fix meals are a great value; food was delicious
The food was fantastic. Very fresh, and extremely well prepared. You won’t be disappointed.
Went with friends to have their price fixed menu. All 3 entrees were excellent and so were the soups. Great value for the money. Highly recommend!
Terrific food and service, you can't go wrong eating there.
We had a very nice dinner with delicious cocktails as well. Service was okay, not superb.
A loud group near us sometimes made conversation difficult.
The service was friendly and efficient. My wife and I both had selections off the the Pri fix menu. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife had the chicken piccata. Both excellent. The music was a little loud but other than that, a very good experience. I highly recommend and will return.
The food was delicious! From the warm rolls to the salad with honey vinaigrette dressing to the bacon jam burger, it was all great. My husband and I split both the salad and burger and we were completely full.
Our first time there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We always sit at the bar in restaurants because we enjoy talking to other patrons, Tim, the bartender, was awesome! He introduced us to a wine we hadn't had before. So good!
He was funny, chatty, but also very attentive. Food was delicious.
Chatted with some fun people.
Will definitely be back!
Jo’s is just phenomenal!!!
Wonderful restaurant. The food was excellent. My vegan wife ordered the Farro Bowl which has a variety of plentiful vegitables. I had the pan roasted cod. It was an excellent preparation on a rich broth with vegitables and shell fish.
The service was prompt and friendly and our waitress, Tracey, was terrific. We highly recommend Jo's.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The staff was very friendly. Food was very good.
We love this restaurant . One of our long time favorites !
Waitress, Tara and staff were friendly and helpful. Good was excellent!
Dined at Jo’s for the first time and everything was exceptional. Food and service couldn’t be beat. Enjoyed the clam chowder and the pork chops with the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts, they were outstanding. For dessert the cinnamon peach bread pudding was exceptional. Olivia our server was superb.
The food was very good but it is clear that they don’t have enough staff to handle the load. The owner is very nice and really a shame that restaurants are struggling to find people.
The server was nice but not attentive at all. She brought my drink that I ordered as soon as we were seated when my food arrived….this was how the entire meal went. Food was really amazing, so high hopes that they can get staff!
Amazing food, especially the lobster bisque! The service was excellent too.
Food was delicious and service was friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back again.
Sweet, over working staff! They were busting their bums trying to get everything everyone hates in the whole restraint but they seemed proficient! Very good food!
Varied menu. Good food. Arrive early to find parking.
Great service. Good value. Nice place with outside seating upstairs.
