One Bellevue Ratings and Reviews
I was very disappointed with the scheduling. The Viking Hotel's website said that afternoon tea is from 2 to 4 daily, so I made a reservation on Open Table for 2 p.m. on Sunday. We walked in and there was a jazz band blaring so loudly you couldn't hear yourself think. Nobody greeted us as we walked in. I had to approach a group of three waitstaff, all of whom were nice, but who looked disorganized and disheveled, and had a hard time making eye contact with any of them. I said we were there for tea and had reservations, and was told that on Sundays, tea starts at 3. I had to drag her to the next question of: "Then can I make a reservation for 3 p.m.?" She said yes, so I did, and my friend and I went and killed time until 3.
We came back around 2:50, the band was still blaring, and we were ushered in right away, which was nice, but then I saw three other tables were already seated. So they didn't open at 3, they opened earlier than that. That part of the experience was really poorly done, very cheesy for something that's supposed to be sophisticated.
I will say that once we were seated, the service was great and the food was delicious.
The lightning was bright and unappealing for evening dining
The waitress stood way back from the table to take our order as if we were infected with something
My filet was excellent but the potatoes stone cold
My husband’s special meal lobster ravioli had no taste
The service was the glaring flaw in an otherwise pleasant evening. It was so slow that, after 2 hours, we had to request the bill instead of enjoying dessert and coffee. The food was good, but underseasoned (NOT something I am used to experiencing as a minimalist myself in that regard). My guests enjoyed our time together and the potential of utilizing valet parking was a HUGE benefit as 2 of the 4 of us suffer from serious mobility challenges.
The location was nice, a modern flair in a historic style building. Services was good, and tea services was served at a good pacing, and they had a harpist playing holiday music. The only thing I would change was that 2 of us ordered tea service, but the scones and sweets each came in odd numbers.
I don’t know if they were under staffed or the wedding going on took away all the attention, but this was a horrible experience. It took forever just to get drinks and I had to flag someone down just to get a water refill.
The appetizers were good, but the main course was another story. We got the lobster Mac n Cheese, which is listed under Chefs Signature Dishes. There were 4 of us and we all got this dish. It came out in a soup of milk and cheese. It literally looked like a bowl of cereal that’s how milky it was. When we asked the waistress if this was right, she only said “I can take it back and have them fix it”. Which lead us to believe it shouldn’t look like that and she took it back to the kitchen. When she brought it back it was much cheesier, but literally ice cold. We called her back over and she touched the plate and said, “that is cold, but the kitchen has no heat currently and it’s as cold in there as it is outside”. This was a bit of a shocking statement to nonchalantly make, but she took it back again and when it came back now for the 3rd time it was lukewarm and kind of dry.
They never actually made a new plate and kept trying to fix the plate without ever explaining what was going on and no real apology. No manager or anyone came by and we were still charged the full amount for an expensive dish that we had to keep sending back.
Maybe this was an off night, but it was so bad that I had to write a review.
It wasn’t that the food overall was bad, but it wasn’t great and it seemed like nobody really cared or put any effort into making it a nice experience.
Six of us spent 3-hours at "restaurant week" dinner. Something happened with our orders that delayed them almost intolerably. We watched as a foursome arrived at an adjacent table after we had ordered. They were served, ate, paid, and departed before our entrees arrived at our table. The restaurant was only about half-full. To their credit, they refilled our drinks on the house. We were among good friends, so we weren't too put out, but the delay was extraordinary!
I took my girlfriend to Newport to get engaged and our flight home was on Sunday afternoon, so I made a reservation for brunch at what was marketed as a very nice Sunday brunch. Unfortunately the room for brunch is small and attached to the general breakfast room for hotel guests. The result is that there are only two tables for two in the brunch area looking out onto the patio. When we arrived, there were no signs in the lobby indication where the dinning room was and had to wait to ask a desk clerk. Then there was no host/hostess to check us in. When we were eventually greeted by a waiter, we were told we had to wait for a table as they would not seat us at one of the open tables for 4 or 6. Unfortunately due to the layout of the brunch and general dining areas, when they cleaned our table a couple from the hotel buffet walked into the brunch seating and took it. We again would not be seated at a larger table and had to wait while they negotiated for the other couple to leave. Although the food was good and the patio view was nice, the general disorganization of the affair left a bad taste. It also didn’t help that some of the wait staff in the non-brunch area had a loud discussion about other staff. They were talking over the hotel guests in the other room. Needless to say it was the lone disappointment of the entire trip.
Sorry, we expected elegance and class and didn’t find it here.
The hostess was super friendly and engaging. We could have talked for hours. But that's sort of where it ended. The food was average, the wine list was okay and the service was just okay. It was boat show weekend so maybe that's why. The ambiance outside was lovely.
The waiter was pretty clueless: didn't tell us the specials (we heard waitress at nearby table) , we had to ask for bread, he tried to grab plates when we were still eating, he didn't bring spoons for the soba noodles in entree, & never asked if we wanted dessert.
the lobster nachos were an extremely tiny portion...
I was in rhode island visiting my parents and we wanted to check out a new spot in Newport. One Bellevue was exactly what we were looking for! The garden dining room is gorgeous and has a wonderful ambiance. My mom and I shared the seafood paella, and it was one of the best meals i've had in a long time - and i admit that I am a new england snob when it comes to seafood. The scallops were melt-in-your-mouth perfect and it was just the right portion for two. We were enjoying ourselves so much that we even had dessert! Our waitress was from Serbia and couldn't have been sweeter. We will definitely be going back. Perfect spot for a special occasion!
The only thing I would caution regards sitting outside. We were seated next to the air conditioning equipment which to me was a disturbance. Having said that, our party of 6 only myself and 2 others felt it was an intrusion. Other than that I was surprised it wasn't more crowded considering the high quality of the overall experience. The hotel looked beautiful.
My wife and I recently enjoyed an excellent dinner at Bellevue One and it appeared that they have recently done some renovations. In addition to having a wonderful meal, with excellent service we were able to enjoy live music from the bar area.
All in all it was a very pleasant experience and I am sure we will make one more visit before heading south again.
I was staying at Hotel Viking and wanted to try the restaurant on a business trip. The food was fine but not very exciting. The service could not have been worse. My waitress was rude, didn't refill my water and barely visited my table. She clearly was significantly less attentive to me, dining alone, than to the groups dining around me. I will never return and would not reccomend.
One Bellevue in the Hotel Viking. We were attending the Jazz Festival at the Tennis Hall of Fame. We chose One Bellevue as it was within walking distance of the venue, The food could have & should have been better, I had a salad with Grilled Shrimp, Shrimp Cocktail & cheesecake, The Salad was small & the shrimp was tough. Might I mentioned the croutons were stale. Everything else was fine-----my friend had a fish entree which was okay, nothing special.
Overpriced for the meal. Service was very good.
We should have anticipated the price----after all----A hotel in Newport---in August---our mistake!
Given that this is not a inexpensive place to dine, the various entrees we had at our table of 11 did not provide a satisfactory experience. Mussels had little taste, scallops had no taste, duck was overcooked and salmon was eh. Pork chop was good as was the Mac and cheese.
One Bellevue has surprisingly excellent food and a good bartender! We've been three times and have been consistently impressed with the quality and selection. Compared with the more popular places like the Mooring and others, this restaurant's food is MUCH better and the atmosphere is more leisurely. The service is good though not as polished as it could be - though staff are always friendly and attentive. Service staff could learn a little more about the food to be able to describe it better. Atmosphere is nice though a little loud with the live music in the bar.
My wife and I were vacationing in Newport and tried 1 Bellevue at the recommendation of a friend. We were one of 3 couples in the entire restaurant. Even though each table had its own waiter/waitress, our service was extremely slow. The food, however, was excellent although a bit pricey. I probably would not go back, given all the other excellent restaurants to choose from in Newport.
While the space itself is beautiful, I was underwhelmed by both the service and the food. We arrived and were seated, and we told them that we were there for afternoon tea. They brought us a menu but gave no instructions. When the server returned, my spouse indicated that she would like the gluten free options, and we were informed that we could not split the order so I would be having gluten free as well. I let them know that we also had a nut allergy, so we would not want anything with almonds - they were actually very accommodating about this, which was a plus. We wanted to order the Royal Tea with champagne, but they didn't actually ask us, and so we had to catch the server before he left the table to ask for it. We selected our teas and they brought hot water, but never inquired about milk, which we wanted. We also didn't receive our champagne. After some time, a new server came to tell us that she would be taking care of us from that point on. We asked for and finally received our drinks. When our tiered tray of food came, they told us they were making sure that there were no nuts in the scones by re-reading the packaging. We were served tea sandwiches on gluten free bread (cucumber and cream cheese, a few with smoked salmon, and some with a sun-dried tomato spread). We also had two types of gluten free scones - chocolate chip and one that was maybe dates or figs? We also had fresh fruit instead of small cakes or truffles. I appreciate that they accommodated both a nut and a gluten allergy, but there were two of us at the table and I have had tea at other establishments where the food sensitivity of one was not imposed on all parties. Service was slow, and other tables remarked on it as well. Overall, fair, but I wouldn't return and wouldn't recommend this to other diners.
Small hotel-based restaurant located in the elegant Viking Hotel a few minutes walking distance from Thames street and the tourist onslaught. Heavy Euro feel to the hotel lobby and restaurant. Very attentive service, pleasant staff, comfortable dining room, creative menu and presentation, suitable for all ages. Bar area has live music and appears to be one of the places to go for affluent millennials. There are two dining rooms both equally as nice but request seating in the one farthest from the bar for a better experience.
Hot and cold...literally.
Fairly inattentive staff
Tuna tartare was tasteless and gray. Salad was good.
Molasses salmon was very good.
NY strip was supposed to be medium rare, came out pretty close to well done. Sauce was good, potatoes came out cold, steak was hot. For a $42 steak it should be perfectly cooked.
Took a long time to get a second drink.
Some things were good, some things were not. For an iconic hotel I was hoping for more.
We had the seafood paella which was supposed to be for two, but portion size was definitely for one person and it was just "ok". No flavor. It seems the quality has gone down since the hotel was bought recently. Last summer we had a great meal and experience at this restaurant. Also, the cocktail list was not as extensive or good as it was last summer. Waitress was just ok also. Not very attentive especially since there were very few customers. Lots of servers/busers running around, but not sure what they were doing.
