Quitos Restaurant is a casual venue that is a wonderful location for family meals. Currently our outdoor patio is the only dining space we have open. Our patio is completely enclosed and cooled by the ocean breeze we also have heaters for those cooler evenings, therefor seating is not weather permitted. Current regulations require parties be no larger 10 guests per table. All guest are asked to arrive on time for their reservations. We do not currently permit waiting near or around the entrance or bar area as this is against state covid registrations. We will send a text to the number you used to make your reservation once your table is properly sanitized and ready for you. We cannot accommodate late arrivals or early arrivals at this time, we must do this to maintain the safety of our guests and staff. All guests and staff are asked to wear a mask we do ask you join us in keeping Rhode Island safe.

Service was very slow. Food came out cold and waiter forgot to put in drink order twice.
I was very surprised because we’ve been to Quito’s many times and have not had this experience in the past. I’m hoping it was due to being early in the season and Covid related short of help issues.

Hi I was not happy with our visit today. We made reservations and we got there 15 minutes early so hostess told us we had to wait . Meanwhile people with no reservations were being seated before us. Not RIGHT. Hostess didn’t even apologize when a went to complain. Love this place but don’t know if we’ll be back.

The fried clams are delicious and not at all greasy. Same with calamari. The coconut mango shrimp is amazing. The spaghetti with white clam sauce was delicious and loaded with chopped clams. Been several times and would go back again.

There were 3 of us and we felt that we waited an inordinate amount of time for our food to be served. Allowing for social distancing, the restaurant was only about 1/2 full.
We did not have any special orders: 1 pan-seared cod sandwich, 1 garden salad with pan-seared cod side, 1 fish and chips. The long wait for our food is the reason for mediocre reviews.

First let me say the food and the waiter, Noah were very good. The hostess was a mess. We had a reservation and went i went to check in she completly ignorned me for more than 3 minutes. Once she finally acknowledegd me - she held her head and mumbled as if I was putting her out. She then sat 2 other tables with same number in party, who had the same time reservation, but checked in after me until i spoke to her- when she once again hung her head and went to get someone else tto help her figure it all out. Very poorly managed

Worst experience and food for Mother’s Day. Chowder wasn’t going to be ready for appetizers, food was cold and greasy when it came out at the same time as the appetizers.

Had 1 PM reservations. Food didn't get served until 2:20 PM. Three out of four plates were cold. Sent them back and got new plates. Fifth person ordered a lobster roll, which did not come out with the four plates because it had mayonnaise in it and they couldn't make that ahead of time. Four people traveled from NH for this. Plenty of wait staff. Didn't see anyone who looked like a manager. Have no idea what the problem was, but we won't be back.

Normally a pleasure for dining but a let down this experience. Food quantity was ample but preparation sub par in our opinion. Broccoli and garlic mash were extremely overly garlic and my wife and I enjoy garlic. Mash potatoes were closer to roasted potatoes that were lightly crushed. Fried clams, scallops and fish were tasty as usual but tartar sauce was way too seat. Disappointed dining this trip.

It was a joke to book on Open Table.... having made our reservation 2 hours in advance was a joke. We had to wait for at least 20 minutes in line...they never called us to say our table was ready. Our table was right in the middle of the flow of wait staff delivering food and drinks. Our waiter was no where to be found throughout our stay. Very disappointed because I have always enjoyed Quito’s. Not sure we will be going back real soon 🥴😩

Owner of restaurant stood and talked to a couple at the next table for at least 25 minutes while we were eating our meal. This was at times a major distraction.

Had reservations arrived on time. Waited 15 minutes to be seated due to the staff having to retrieve a table and chairs from outside for a walk-in party of six.

Mr. Hunter I recall your visit Friday. Your reservation was for 5:30 your drinks were ordered at 5:31. We did take a few moments picking the most comfortable table as 3 of the tables near the 1 you chose were open and it was windy that evening. The owner was not on the patio Friday night but perhaps this was during another visit. As we also didn't have a party of 6 that night. I have relayed your message to the owner. We do hope you come again. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I particularly love the Rhode Island clam chowder, so I always order that. Saturday I ordered the fried clam plate and they were delicious. Others in my party ordered clam cakes and the fried combination plate and we were all very happy with our orders.
Service was slower than usual and there was an average number of patrons. Worth the wait, just don't be in a rush.
Great casual restaurant. Will be visiting again soon.

Quitos has changed in the quality of food.
The RI choder had way too much pepper for my taste buds.
Scallops and potatoes seemed overcooked and rubbery.
Waiter was friendly, but not very attentive

We went on a cold cloudy night and sat in the covered space right next to water. It was warm enough and very pretty. The service was great, but most of all the food was outstanding. We had a salad with scallops and a fried platter with clams and oysters. Overall a great meal. We will be back.
