Very small portions for the price
The location is excellent. We sat outdoors by the pool, which was very comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and took good care of us despite being the only people out near the pool. I ordered the scallops, which were very good. My friend ordered the fish tacos, which weren't as good. The upstairs outdoor space was completely full, but looked like a great place to have a drink and a light meal.
We had friends visiting from out-of-town. It was the Sat after the 4th. They had only fixed menu with 4 entrees! They did accommodate with allowing scallops only, but I was very disturbed. Food was just OK. I had halibut that was cut up in a bowl - and over-cooked. Will never go again or recommend it.
Chef quit, no menu to choose from , wine list sucked stay away unless you are a firemen, we left
Beautiful setting. We ate at the bar and Brian the bar tender was fabulous. Very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the muscles for in appetizer and they were in this amazing sauce. I got the burger and it was one if the best burgers I ever had. Locally sourced beef. After we went up to the roof top bar that overlooked the ocean for after dinner drinks. Great evening in Narragansett. Can't wait to go back.
Absolutely horribles service. Food was ok but the service was so bad the table next to us became our friends so we could laugh about it
After a moment to calm down and process how I just lost $150 I think they deserve a full description of my night.
Overall, Disappointing. Don't get me wrong, the food was really pretty good, but I would never recommend this establishment. The service had much to be desired. All staff that we encountered were very friendly, however many just very slow and inept. From the beginning, there was no hostess present. We waited quite awhile and went looking for one. Once sitting, easily six minutes went by before we were greeted. The server disappeared at length on another occasion and was no where in sight. We were offered bread when our first appetizer arrived. It came after we had finished the first, ordered and ate the second and had inquired and or was promised it three times . Entrees were also promised multiple times, that they would be out within three minutes. An additional ten or fifteen minutes after the time that they were already late to get there, they finally arrived. I was really intrigued and excited about the chicharrones on my fish taco but unfortunately, they were missing. Dessert was delivered to our table and to the table next to ours, without spoons. This to me is bad service. Once ordered and put in, spoons should be delivered. All in all, not an experience I would ever seek out again. Though the food was good, it is not with the lack of service. It really is unfortunate since they were all nice and pleasant and the food tasty. They just need better training and to have some sense of urgency and the ability to expect the basic needs of the customers. What would have made some difference to me is if they were busy. I would have pardoned some of the flaws or lack of good service but it was quiet. They just really didn't seem to have experience or know what they were doing.
Went for my birthday with family everything we ordered was out including potato chips! We ended up eating hot dogs and a sandwich just to be able to eat something. 😢
Amazing food as always! Great service and friendly staff!
My husband and I stayed at the break for our anniversary. The hotel is adorable and clean. We chose Chair 5 for dinner after reading the reviews. We usually do not dine in the restaurant in our hotel. It was not a busy night as it was the middle of the week. We enjoyed cocktails on the rooftop before moving down to the dining room. The decor was very pretty with simple daisies on the table and blue and green beach colors. Out table overlooked the pool. The service was great. Our dinners and appetizer were delicious. We will definitely be back again.
Vacation! Lovely service, relaxed and elegant; delicious!
Great food, service, value, and atmosphere! Location is perfect.
Love this spot and have been several times in the past... Ambiance has always been fun and coastal - but food has been "spotty" in the past. Not anymore - delicious local food showcased at its best. Service was also fabulous - would highly recommend for a Narragansett treat!
Everything was great, except for the chicken I ordered......I cant handle spicy food to well and it was pretty hot AND not mentioned on the menu. I would advise stating if spicy or not, fyi.
Breakfast was creative, many choices and outstanding
Always enjoyable, super lovely decor. Interesting menu choices, fresh and well prepared. It's good for a bite or to linger. Beware the chocolate chip cookies though, they tend to be overbaked :(
Interesting but limited menu for brunch. Food was delicious. Not a quick place but I believe it was not meant to be. Liked very much
Great food, loved the scallop special “bibimbop” style and our waitress was very informative and attentive.
We were very disappointed and would not return. We were the only couple in the dining room, 4 oz of lobster meat for $22 is ashame. Other dining for same price or less give generous portions. Menu is very limited. Not returning.
Coast Guard has a view this place has nothing.
Appetizers- the kale ceaser was delicious, just enough dressing. Oysters - perfect. Main meals-I had the salmon, the portion was small but the overall taste of the dish made up for it, It was cooked perfectly. If you are a salmon lover I would definately recommend this dish. Just be aware you will have room for desert. My company had a scallop special which was amazing. The main dishes were put together in a creative way and different from another very popular seafood restaurant which has not changed thier menu in years. Desert- Pistascshio Creme-Brule; all I can say is Oh My! Another plus is the ability to make dinner reservations, as the summer season revs up the ability to make dinner reservations is a huge plus! Over all excellent seafood entrees and a fantastic dinner out- a little pricey for portion size but you soon forget all about that after your first bite!
Terrible service. Reason to believe waiter was the problem rather than the bartender or the kitchen. One of our guests was through with his meal and still waiting for his glass of wine only to find it waiting on the bar with the bartender. For the poor service, the price was far excessive. Even for outstanding service, the price was high. Will not return to dine here.
Good food and service at reasonable prices. Located in the quiet and upscale Narraganset community.
The restaurant is beautiful but extremely noisy . My friend and I had to yell at each other. The food was well prepared and tasty but very small portions, our salmon dinners looked like appetizers, even the dessert was small . I was still hungry when I got home . Too bad because it is pretty but I won’t be going back any time soon .
If you've never been, with a visit.
Will be nice in warmer weather.
a Very enjoyable evening at Chair 5. Excellent service and a creative menu. I had the special with kim chi and they were very amenable to substituting salmon for scallops. Very nice.
Dinner was beyond delicious!!! The creativity and presentation of the food was out of this world not to mention so tasty!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal from start to finish!! Two Thumbs Up for the chef!!! Staff was very friendly as well!! Can’t wait to go back...never disappoints!!!
Very beautiful place. Pasta was awesome.. made there fresh. Good service. Has a new feel to it and some aspects of the meal weren't perfect but was very good.
I've eaten here several times, more for convenience. This meal was outstanding. Turns out there is a new chef. Now taken the restaurant to a new level. Will be back because the food is now really special.
We went to listen to music and have dinner. We sat upstairs and the view was great, as was the food. Waitress also friendly and helpful.
Nothing exceptional; 4 of us and none of us is inclined to return. Too many better choices.
You go for the ambiance and location, not the food.
Went for Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. Beautiful spot with good drinks. Only 3 tables seated and food took quite some time to come out. Ordered a breakfast burrito described to have pulled pork, a creme fraiche sauce. A few bites in, I asked for some hot sauce since it was really bland. After a few more bites I notice it’s basically eggs and potatoes. I asked the waitress if this was what I ordered since there’s no meat etc didn’t sound like the men description. She stated she’d let the kitchen know they forgot the meat. Nothing was taken off the bill. Such a pretty spot Just disappointed with our experience.
An event was happening downstairs so it was very crowded. No staff greeted us or redirected us upstairs to where dinner was being served that night. After asking the hosts of the event where to go we took the elevator upstairs. There again, we were not greeted. The dining room was unwelcoming. We left and went to the Matunuck Oyster Bar.
Danielle was great - entree could have been better. Food doesn't stack up w/ the rest of the experience (service, location, interior space....)
They only had a buffet, didn't say it was $35. Just a few items. Eggs were cold. Pancakes were cold and larger than the small plates made available. Weird. Sausages were cold. There was one piece of bacon in the tray. The waitress was very nice. Not the manager. He said: I understand the food is not up to your expectations. What? Who likes cold eggs and pancakes? Too many other better places nearby to ever go here again.
Great out of the way place with style and class but a beach appeal.
Chair 5 has combined a cool modern beach design with fusion food! Prices vary from inexpensive to pricey, and there is something on the menu for everyone. The fries are not to be missed, the fish tacos are delicious, and the wine, beer and cocktail menu are extensive. Highly recommend this bar and restaurant to anyone in the area!
Great food, service and setting!
Our meals and cocktails were very good but the menu, for our tastes, was a bit limited. The restaurant and upstairs bar though, were as cool as any I've been in, ambience was amazing.
Excellent food, drinks, service and ambiance.
