Jo's American Bistro
Food was very nice. Great wine list very fairly priced. We’ll be back.
Outstanding. We had relatives from out of town and wanted to take them to our favorite restaurant. They were very pleased and we were again very impressed with the entire staff at Jo’s.
We have had dinner at Jo’s each time we’ve gone to Newport for the last 5 years! The food and service are the best and the music is wonderful. We highly recommend Jo’s for dinner!
This is the third time that I've eaten at Jo's American Bistro. I enjoy the atmosphere as well as the quality of both the food and the service. I'd highly recommend it.
Awful service. Food was decent. Waiter never refilled our water once and never checked on us after someone else brought our entrees. Once he realized we weren’t ordering alcohol, he seemed to not care about our table.
I tried the Dry Dock Fish and Chips -- better than your average. The batter was tasty and not overwhelming like some. I had a nice serving of fish instead of a nice serving of batter.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly service.
Great atmosphere! Wonderful signature cocktails and a good wine list at very modest price points. My wife got the Filet and remarked it may have been one of the top three steaks she’s ever had. Will certainly be back.
Food was good, service was a bit slow. Ordered a merlot and a Malbec and did not care for either. Tables a bit close and a little bit too much noise.
We had a nice dinner. My wife had the Valentine's dinner, the Pan seared Tuna. I had the Butternut Squash Agnolotti. Both were excellent. We shared the Strawberry Napoleons. It was all wonderful.
This was our first time visiting Jo's. The food was great, the staff and service people were very friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back again.
First time there. Great dinner...clam chowder was good, fried chicken bites were pretty good - some pieces were better cuts than others, lobster roll was tasty and generous and the burger was excellent - perfect medium and tasty bun. Server was attentive, food was served at the right pace. Mostly couples and groups of adults. Vibe is casual, not a formal quiet, and not loud. Would definitely go back.
My wife and I Made our reservations online in advance. We requested a quiet table this led to our only bad experience at Jo’s. when we arrived we said that we had requested a Private table. A woman who appeared to be the owner or manager said in a rude manner “there are no private tables here” and put us at a table in the main dining room. next a gentleman who appeared to be the owner or manager him self guided us to a table where there was nobody around it was very private he was very accommodating after that the food was very good reasonably priced the ambience was great we even stayed later to listen to a husband and wife singing duo.
First visit. Great meal and service!
Was there on Valentine's Day and enjoyed it very much!! The food was delicious!! Would definitely recommend it!!
Wonderful service, wonderful food.
Totally awesome like it always is every time we go there
The food was delicious, if you have any kind of food allergy, whether it be to onions or gluten they accommodate with no questions. Great service and a great kitchen.
My wife and, I enjoyed the wait staff Olivia very nice and, the food was wonderful but, the lady that seated us was very miserable and, abrupt. I myself work in customer service and, am 59 years old and, have never had a greater/host be so unpleasant. Everything else was nice and, the man and, lady whom I say where managers went to each table and, ensured all was well.

Great dinner while in Newport! Food and service was very good.
Always a very nice dining experience. Food is very good and the service is exceptional. Would recommend this for either special occasions or just a night out.
It was Super Bowl night so it was very quiet and we were attended to well! There were some musicians there and they were excellent but since it is a smallish place it was a little hard to converse while they played. There were 3 of us in our party and we all ordered different things and all were excellent!
The food was really good. I got the duck and my friend got the steak fritte. Both big portions and done really well. The cocktails were very good. The sapphire martinis awesome. Jo's has a 'neighborhood' feel to it, staff is really friendly and make you feel welcome. I do like it in the summer too, when the upstairs porch is open! I always look forward to coming to Jo's !
It was very warm in the dining room.
Waitress was very nice and attentive, but food was just OK. The best part was dessert and espresso martinis.
Prices were a little too high for this type of menu.............$16.00 for a burger!!!
Appetizers were also too expensive.
Service was amazing and the was so delicious! We will be back for sure!
Heating system the only negative. Temperature went from too hot to be comfortable to too cool to be comfortable
We usually go for my husband's birthday in January. Nice and cozy and food is always good. Great service and always feel welcome. Thanks so much!!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Nice live music.
The food was good. Fish and chips were delicious. The chicken dish was ok. The service was top notch and we weren’t rushed to order nor leave. It’s a real gem!
Went there for the January special, burger and beer. Started with a good green salad but the burger arrived partially burnt maybe since we ordered medium well, but ruined the flavor. The fries were good
nice setting, good food, good service, excellent value
Good food and good service. We visited jo's to have the dinner at end of the year and the special menu was a good choice
New Year’s Eve dinner was fabulous and very reasonably priced for the value and the quality. Experienced, long-term waitstaff is professional and discreetly attentive even despite a very busy night. Chef Brian outdid himself. Sauces for beef were outstanding — best bearnaise ever! Beef entrees were perfectly cooked. Appetizers were imaginative (duck spring roll with mole sauce) and impeccable (perfectly sliced carpaccio). Wine list extensive and VERY reasonable and accessible. Grand slam on this one!
This restaurant is consistently excellent!! Drinks are tasty and strong. Food is always done well!
Best lobster roll ever !!!
Great vibe, super friendly staff.
Excellent food and drinks at a great value and exquisite service
We really enjoyed our dinner at Joe’s. They provided excellent service and ambiance from the moment we walked in the door. We had a memorable dinner!
Super. We love taking friends here for dinner!
Our daughter has many allergies and she was able to “eat out” like everyone else without the stress of possibly getting sick. We all enjoyed the delicious food and the staff was wonderful- especially our waitress Olivia.
Can’t say enough goods things about this place! Excellent food and great service.
