Celebrated my sister's birthday at the Newport Vineyards Tank Patio. A fun atmosphere with lots of activity. Our waitress was good. A little long between checking back to see if everything was ok, but she did come around and was very nice. We did flights of wine, beer and appetizers. The food was awesome. Best pretzel we have had in a long time. The chowder and spiced nuts were really tasty. All the guests at our table enjoyed their time. We were only supposed to be there for 1.5 hours, but they didn't rush us out and we stayed until they had the next reservation. Good food, great wine and beautiful surroundings. Thank you for a fun birthday celebration! We will definitely be back!!

Decent place for the ambiance and the grounds. Just being there was fun. The food is not great. The bread for the cheese board was so salty we could not eat it. Stay away from the red wines and go with the whites. I think the the fact that it was Newport in the summer kept the place busy.

Can’t comment too much on the food. Only had the pretzels, but they were very good. The winery is a fun experience, expensive for those teeny pours of wine, but fun. Will be back.

Wow, as a first time patron it was an amazing experience. The drive was not the best but it was worth it. The waiters were kind and accomodating. The food....I mean... amazing. We had the chicken and beef tacos, chicken wrap and striped bass...all were fantastic.

We ordered the wine flight and cheese board. Great value and experience. The waiter was attentive and did a great job. The cheese board was a perfect combination of flavors and amounts. Dates, figs, strawberries, honey, 3 cheeses! Yum! It was a pretty view and relaxing. It was an overall enjoyable experience. Everyone was polite. We bought wine and the people in the shop were nice.

Enjoyed a lovely day outside with a wine flight, charcuterie and view of the vineyard. Excellent service, although their food menu is a bit limited in selection.

I like most things about Newport Vineyards. It's beautiful, it has a good vibe, most of the wines are very tasty, and the food is decent. A few things were a little off-putting though. The music level was really loud for a dining experience, and it felt more like we were at a club than a winery (maybe I'm just getting old). While the wine flights and cheese board were solid, the chicken tacos weren't that great and the flavors just weren't quite there. The dessert we got was very good (tres leches cake). It's really pricey for what you get, but it's a very nice place to go for a special occasion.

We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server came over quickly and we ordered a glass of wine each and also put in our dinner choices. Our server returned within 10 minutes to tell us one dinner selection was no longer available. It took close to a half hour to get our drinks, and about 35-45 minutes to finally get our mail course, which came with our appetizer.
I had to ask the server about dessert options as it did not seem she was going to offer us dessert, only to find that both primary options were no longer available but a substitute had been added, which we requested. This resulted in another 35 minute wait.
We are locals and used to eat at the indoor restaurant Brix frequently pre pandemic, but this experience has us questioning what was going on with the kitchen. It will be a while before we return, if we return. Perhaps the vineyard oversold their weekend special, or staffing was short handed, regardless it was a very unpleasant experience.
We had planned to bring visiting family to the vineyard next week, but decided against it due to our experience yesterday. The vineyard is a lovely venue and the menu selections in Brix were always intriguing. We will wait until the fall/winter, and decide if a return visit is worth it.

We loved the Tank Patio! Being able to get flights or glasses of beer or wine was great and the snacks (Cheese board & clam chowder) were perfect. They were playing 80s hits, which was super fun. The only thing that could have made the experience better was an umbrella as it was hot and sunny that day.

Easy to reserve. Staff super friendly and helpful. Plentiful cheese platter has 3 cheeses, bread-like crackers, grapes, apricots, figs, 2 dipping sauces. Eclectic sandwiches w/spicy chips. Very enjoyable way to get together with friends. Not full lunch menu but more than enough choices.

I have visited the vineyard before, and have had a better experience. When my partner and I arrived we were sat at the tank patio. The weather was 70 degrees outside however the sun was beaming on the patio and there were no umbrellas over the tables not even in the taproot restaurant. This was an issue for everyone around us and the staff was made aware of the concern. The cheese board platter was very small and then what I received before and the cheese melted due to the heat as well as the wine warming. The vineyard needs to invest in umbrellas as they had in the past and give people what they are paying for.

Hi Monee, thank you for returning for another visit! We're sorry for the lack of shade - we are currently waiting for a special awning installment to fix this. We hope you return to be able to enjoy a more comfortable experience!

Had some tastings on the Tank Patio. Overall, great experience, beautiful winery views and quick service.
Wines and beers that we tried were good, very drinkable, but nothing to buy to-go.
I kind of wish the music was quieter as it was blasting some 90's songs so loud, it got in a way of enjoying the view and the nature.
Also, it was extremely hot outside and overall experience would've been a lot better in they had some umbrella's for the tables. We were sitting in direct sunlight and it was uncomfortable.

Fun place to taste wines / beer with friends or on a date. The ambience is great and you get to sit among the barrels, tanks and actual vineyard. The actual food and wine was okay, but still made for a fun experience.
