Food ok. VERY loud. Atmosphere kinda blah. Service very good.
We made reservations for a trip to Newport RI and thought we'd give it a try. It was generally bad. The food was bland--for instance mushroom pate was almost tasteless. Service was fair to poor. Asked for a particular drink and was given something else. When I asked the server he offered to take it back and add something to it to make it right. Not a new drink but add something. Never heard that one. Salad was drenched in dressing. Lobster roll was burned to blackness. Fries were wilted and greasy. Overall just a poor experience. Highly NOT recommended.
Ordered an charcuterie board and waiter Tate forgot to put it in....30 minutes later we reminded him and it came right out... But then our meal came out right on top of it... Then ordered coffee, and we got our bill but then never got the coffee so I had to remind him again... Food was fine but service was not great
Great food, in the center of everything
A great reimagining of an old building.
"Outdoor Patio" had open windows and a great breeze going through, so felt very covid friendly. Stepanie, our server was fun and very attentive. Only bummer was that several of their signature cocktails were not in stock, so we we went down to third or fourth choices. Still fine. Appetizers were VERY good. Cauliflower was great as was the shrimp and grits.
The charcuterie we selected was fabulous! It had all the right ingrendients to make for a lovely Sunday afternoon!
Food was good, service was weak to non existent. You can get better service at a Denny’s
When we arrived to confirm our reservation, our host informed us that they had us (a party of two) in their system as a party of 5 (even though my app confirmation showed a party of 2). As a result, we were seated at a table set for 5 in a noisy part of the upstairs (while vacant, quieter tables for two sat unused in our vicinity). Despite this annoyance, the food was plentiful and delicious and complimented by attentive wait staff (a rare find in the hospitality industry these days). I will highly recommend to anyone I know visiting Newport looking for a bistro type place.
Menu had some unique offerings. The amount of food served was incredible! Too much for one person to eat.
Very nice I love the feel of outdoor seating. Good was great
Food was below average, drinks were nice to look at but average and restrooms were disgusting.
We had a 9pm dinner reservation on Labor Day weekend since it was all they had available. Location was good, but unfortunately being that it was a holiday weekend and super crowded it was so noisy you could barely hear the person sitting next to you. We liked our apps but the entrees were underwhelming.
Everything was “perfection”!! Delicious and a wonderful evening out! Thank you… definitely will be back !
Very good food, good service and we loved our table next to an open window in a room with very high ceilings and fans keeping the air moving. As elsewhere in Newport, no one is wearing masks but the setting made us feel better about that. I had a halibut entree that somehow got better with every bite and my husband had the lobster roll with Brussels sprouts, and we were both very pleased.
Beautiful space with sexy vibe and cool music. Menu had a lot of options, food was average. Would go again for food and drinks, there are 2 large bars. Seating was distanced and very comfortable.
Charcuterie boards are amazing!
Food was actually delicious. I loved the small plates option. Scallops were perfectly cooked! Beet salad was also excellent (doesn’t need to be so big!). Service was totally mediocre. Very slow… took a long time to order… we ran out of drinks… The service training just didn’t seem to fit the rest of the ambiance. Waitstaff we’re really friendly though so I will give them that!
Awesome cheese board and small plates. Great wine menu. Great service
Lobster roll and truffle potatoes were divine!
Food and service were excellent! We were surprised how good it was....the charcuterie boards were wonderful and the lobster rolls were great! the only thing is when making a reservation, if it's hot outside, that's where they'll put you unless you request an inside table. Very not outside!
Highly recommend the Build Your Own Board and Small Plates!
We really enjoyed the creative menu, from the charcuterie board to the small plates. The lobster sliders and tuna poke were especially delicious. Will definitely be back the next time we visit Newport.
Catherine our waitress was amazing! And as always, food and drinks fantastic!
Food and service was phenomenal
Great dinner, service and atmosphere…we were seated on time…
Duck drumettes were excellent Cauliflower tempura was OK. Shrimp and grits were very good as was the charcuterie (boar sausage, duck rillete and Camembert).. overall would come back.
Very cool spot. Great menu and delicious food! Our server was more than we could've asked for too!
So disappointed!!! After reading many positive reviews, I was expecting a great experience. All of the food we had (salad, halibut, burger, potatoes and even the cocktails/drinks) were really awful- and it was expensive!! I would avoid.
Outstanding food. Great service—above and beyond. If you're in Newport, don't miss it!
This place is a must try if you enjoy charcuterie boards! They have a great selection of meats, cheeses, and sides. They also have a good wine and beer list. We tried and recommend their lobster roll (warm style), veggie wrap, bibb salad, hanger steak, and burger. Our waitress was also good. We went during weekday lunch so it was relatively quiet. We will definitely return with friends in the future.
New favorite restaurant in Newport! This was my second time here and it was just as great as the first. We had a board, mussels & lobster sliders.. recommend all of it! Drinks were also phenomenal, can never go wrong with a margarita in the summer.
Amazing portions on the charcuterie! The duck drumettes are incredible!
Sadie was the best!! Beautiful second floor setting, amazing food and BEST MARGARITAS. Awesome experience!
Good food and good service. Was seated in a room without AC on a hot day which made dinner uncomfortable.
The food was amazing! Picking out the cheese board items was so fun! Our server Stephanie was so very knowledgeable and super friendly! We can’t wait to come back!
We had an amazing experience at Bar & Board. Our server Steph was fantastic. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very cool. We felt safe and had a great time. Can't wait to go back!
