Great food but service wasn’t the fastest, but they are nice. second time and service still the same. We’re halfway done with the meal before we had water.

Will go back just know the service is slow, but they are friendly and nice.

We were 5 people dining for brunch yesterday. It took about an hour to get our food. The server did not communicate with us about any delays. The food was good but I won’t be going back to wait that long for food again. When our food was finally brought out, one of the omelette orders was wrong. I had higher hopes for this restaurant.

I was very disappointed with the fact that my family and I drove up to Newport from New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving dinner with cousins who recently lost their mother and we were told the Buffet was over and what was left was a leftover Thanksgiving meal. When I saw what was being offered, I chose a lobster salad instead. In addition, when we tried to make the best of it and were socializing with each other, lights were turned off indicating it was time for us to leave. Will not attend this restaurant again.

Their economical Thanksgiving buffet was quite good. The service given the day was amazingly attentive. My husband and I went there the Sunday before to check out their free afternoon jazz which was also quite good. Wine and appetizers were reasonably priced. We will go back when we return to Newport in May for their early bird dinner specials.

Great food. Strange ambience. The food was creative and delicious. The dining room was strangely sparsely laid out and very loud. Needs work.

We came for lunch during resultant week and arrived before the restaurant got packed, however it did get packed within about a half an hour of us arriving. We had to ask for things from our not so attentive server (drinks mostly) multiple times and the food took forever to come out. When the clam chowder and lobster bisque came out, there was a film on top of them like they had been sitting out for a while. They were luke warm and average tasting at best. One of the other appetizers was a sampler, and while the clam cake was delicious and at least a good warm temperature, the stuffie was cold, so we really weren’t sure if it was good or not. Our meals were all average, not cold luckily, but not hot. The dessert was well presented and actually very tasty. Would not be back, except maybe for drinks at the bar.

My friend and I had salads; Greek salad with chicken and arugula with chicken and some fries. It was a nice lunch and Deb was super nice. Other staff also friendly.

This was our first visit to the"new" Johnny's having been to the original by the beach many times. This may have effected our visit ratings since it is a major departure. The environment was casual. Staff attention was very good but there were no more than 3 other diners present at any one time. This was mid afternoon, 3pm. The branzini was very nice but the Israeli couscous was slightly overcooked and was bland. The hummus appetizer was wonderful. The black bean hummus was adelight. The clam chowder was good.

Noisy. Food was pretty good but on the expensive side. There is little ambiance. Hard surfaces everywhere make it echo loud voices. The chowder was good.

Last minute dinner reservation while visiting Newport. This hotel is only a few months old, so all the furniture is new and clean. Food was very tasty and the service was support although we can in very late, around the time they were closing. We were served and not rushed.

The restaurant was large enough so there was plenty of room to pull out a chair without bumping into your neighboring table. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We weren't rushed and stayed long after eating for lots of laughs and conversation. BUT, they did NOT have a record of my reservation. Fortunately, there were plenty of tables available to seat us.

What a great time we had for our get together. The service was outstanding. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. The food was great. I would definitely order the mini stuffies again. This was an awesome experience and I will definitely return.

Great waterfront bar. Food was good, but appetizer order was forgotten and served at same time as entrees.
Service was poor. They kept telling us they were short staffed, which was hard to believe at height of summer and on a busy Friday night.
I won't be returning anytime soon.

Way too noisy. Hard to hear tablemates. Food was good but not exceptional. Parking (handicapped) was too far away. No place to put coats & umbrellas. Had to put them on the floor. This new restaurant needs to iron out several wrinkles. Wish we could bring back the old Johnnys.
