We’re an eclectic blend of Newport vibes — from the historic bank vault behind our marble bar to the Bellevue Ave-inspired details in our lounge. Our cocktails bring you back to the Newport of decades ago. We’re proud to serve quality, locally sourced victuals (it rhymes with ‘skittles’) — all in an immersive dining experience.

We were off yo a great start! Good service, good cocktails, wonderful charcuterie board and oysters. We decided on three small plates..shrimp with grits, duck drummetts and polenta fries which were no longer offered on menu but chef accommodated us. As soon as it hit the table we could see the polenta fries were overdone..nearly burnt. It was downhill from there. All three dishes were so salty they were nearly inedible. We left practically the entire dish of fries. It was sickening. Gently complained to the waitress and they gave us a $6 discount. Pathetic. Advice is stick to charc. Boards and raw bar. Chef is obviously an amateur.

I made reservations and requested a BOOTH. When we arrived we were greeted and told that our seating was upstairs. They sat us at a TABLE that was located near the exit door and food runners. When people came up the stairs and walked around the corner they would be inches from walking into my chair. Too much constant activity passing by so close. It was very cold upstairs, they needed to put the heat on. My husband is bald and he could feel cold air blowing on his head. It was very dark and hard to read the menu. Our main entrees were absolutely delicious. I requested to see the dessert menu and there were only 4 choices, none that interested us. I personally wouldn’t go back even though food was fabulous.

We came with our two young kids from out of town. Staff was extremely courteous, they made kid friendly dinners that I think were off menu, and our meals (salmon and short rib) were excellent. Would absolutely go again.

Went on Taco Tuesday and had all we could eat tacos..delicious! Waitress was lovely but a little overwhelmed. We were here two years ago and returned; menu was improved and expanded. We will go back!

Everything was excellent!! We enjoyed some unique and tasty cocktails. Our board we selected was perfect and the duck confit drumsticks were delicious. We ended with some more cocktails and a piece of warm cinnamon bread pudding.

Made my reservation on 12/18 for 12/26, showed up for reservation and business was closed. Total waste of time, and had I known I would have planned a better night other than trying to find another place last minute.

Despite having Open Table reservations, they tried to put us at a table in a tented outdoor area with practically no heat. When we asked for something actually “inside” the restaurant they could only give the 3 of us a small pub table. When I went to use the restroom upstairs, I realized there was a huge restaurant that could have fit us.

Build your own board charcuterie was excellent- great quality meats, cheeses, and accoutrement. Very cool atmosphere. That’s about where it ended. Entrees and small plates were not great, service was horrible. We were a party of 8 with a reservation, waited 15-20 mins after we were seated for anyone to even come over and take drink orders. The waitress never came over to check or see what else we needed throughout the meal and seemed inconvenienced when we called her over/asked for anything.

Everything came out quickly. Some of the dishes were great, others were okay. It just depends on what you order. But overall it was a great night and a really fun place to get dinner. The bar downstairs was lively and fun, but the table we sat at was pretty quiet and romantic.
