Fresh ingredients and tasty food. Great place in downtown
Loved it! Went during a rainy day and it was spacious and airy. Great location and food!
Fantastic food and service! Would recommend again! Definitely get the charcuterie board!
The space was fantastic. Way bigfer than I expected. Duck drumettes were great along with the Tempura Cauliflower. I've never tried lobster on a burger. I went for it. I Don't regret it. Unfortunately my wife's Halibut came well after the sides. It was the only disappointment. The servers were great.
The DJ was spinning some fire. Its nice to see wax on the turntable.
Loved sitting at the bar - great mixologist, friendly staff.
Cool spot on Thames in the middle of everything. Great Menu with interesting choices. Great Small Plates if you want to go the Tapas route.Als a create your own Charcuterie Board menu. The Entree's are also creative & not your everyday run of the mill items. The restaurant is much bigger than you think with a few different levels as well as Fresh Air dining. The Staff is super pleasant our waitress Sadie was a doll super attentive without hovering but always there if we needed anything. Definitely will be returning on our next trip to Newport.
Not as good food as 2020 and 2019.
Bouillabaisse was incredibly delicious.
Very interesting menu and great service. A little loud, but still highly recommended
Nice room outdoors under cover. Food is very good
Went for a late lunch and a drink. We had chicken avocado wrap and corn chowder. The food was fantastic. It was plenty for 2 of us. The staff also fantastic. I would highly recommend.
The restaurant was extremely understaffed in all departments. They have rebranded themselves and are now more bar than restaurant. The waiter Tate did his best. He was making drink as well as serving food. Silverware and glassware were dirty. The main course was not served at the same time. 1 dish was wrong, 1 dish burnt. It was so loud we could not have a conversation. They did end up crediting half of our dinner. This is a management problem. In my opinion you should not take in more people than you can serve. I live in town and took guests from out of town and my reservations were made well in advance. I can never go to this restaurant again and don’t think they should be on open table unless these issues are resolved.
The food was amazing. The seafood bouillabaisse was so fresh and plentiful. The tomato based broth was so good that we lapped it up with the mussel shells!
The shrimp and grits and lobster sliders were delicious and just the right size. Our server was very attentive. Great location.
We started with a cheese board which was excellent abs the portions were good. They food was a great size portion
And cooked as ordered. Overall great meal and would go back again
Great food but our waitress sort of left at one point and didn’t seem to come back! The host took over though
Service was great! Thanks Ashley
Great menu. Great beverages. Yummy food. Friendly staff. Only thing that threw me off is rather than getting a new wine glass for another round our glasses were refilled even though they were not empty and we were chafed for a full glass.
Only downside was the bartender wouldn’t sub out a different liquor in a specialty cocktail
Delicious food, great service, friendly and attentive server, table right by the (open) window made for good people watching
So good! Found was great. Cool atmosphere
A sure bet
The food here is fantastic! They also have a good spread of price point which is great. You can get wraps and burgers for lower prices that taste delicious as well as items on the more expensive side. I don't feel like they upcharge here just because it's downtown.
It was an absolutely delightful birthday celebration.
The food and service was phenomenal. I can’t wait to return
Great mocktails for the kids!
Outstanding meal! From the mixed drinks to the appetizers to the main courses, it was all excellent. Service was impeccable and the ambiance was great. The best meal we had in Newport.
We love the bar on the first floor. Bartenders are the best in Newport! Creative cocktails and great food!
We had an amazing experience at Bar & Board. Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was outstanding. The build your own charcuterie board is a little pricy, but you do get large portions on your board. It is also something fun and different to customize your own board. Well worth the price for a nice evening out. Tip: the outside and inside are not air conditioned so it is better to go on a cool night. And make reservations ahead of time.
The food was great we sat inside and it was hot
Food was very good but service was terrible. We waited over 15 minutes just for our server to greet us. From there, every part of the meal took 45+ minutes to come out. Even a cheese board! Loved the food but the slow service somewhat ruined the meal.
Wonderful service and the seafood was very fresh.
Service and ambiance were great. Food was pretty lackluster. Scallops were amazing, but everything else was pretty much off. The primavera was severely under seasoned, the rice was extremely undercooked, and the clam chowder did not really taste like it contained clams. Overall, would recommend for the environment, but I wouldn’t go here expecting to get amazing food.
It was a very hot day and there was no mention when making reservations that a standard table meant no A/C. Luckily there was room at a high top in the bar room. The restaurant was not crowded, but service was slow (I longingly watched my ice tea sit at the bar for nearly 10 minutes) and server seemed flustered. I could see a cook in the back eating where he then prepared our sandwiches. Of the three, two were decent and the third was very bland. Would not recommend.
Perfect, lengthened review.
The craft cocktails were amazing! We loved the bar experience and the presentation of our drinks. Our appetizers were very yummy as was dinner. I would come back for cocktails and apps!
The food was delicious , the staff was wonderful super friendly. I loved the set up and the food came quick:) 10/10!
Amazing service, very cool interior, delicious food!!! Something different! Must try!
Food was average at best, even the drinks were average. Lobster roll was so soggy we had to just eat the meat with a fork and throw out the bread. Best thing I can say was our server was excellent and the fries were delicious. We would not go back though because if the food.
After being seated we received menus and water, then our server disappeared for 10-15 minutes. I walked to the hostess and she looked for the server. After another 5 minutes, the server came - with an attitude. When she rudely asked what we wanted I replied “another server”. The next server was good. Beware of their “Clean Martini” it’s a play on words - very dirty with smoked olive juice - for my taste, I drinkable! We selected several items from their Board menu - food was good but overpriced for what they serve - my plate had a very visible hair right in the middle, which was promptly replaced. Dinner entrees we’re just OK. Overall experience was unpleasant. In my opinion - a trendy restaurant that won’t be around unless they clean up their act.
We loved the “board” that we ordered, every item tantalizing our tastebuds. Also the small plates were a good value. The chefs know what they’re doing here. We definitely plan to dine again soon at Bar and Board.
