    We had a wonderful time! It was a beautiful evening and this was the ideal spot to enjoy the sunset. Our server was professional and charming. The food was delicious. I’ve noted some reviews complaining about prices, but we found that the quality of the food fully supported the expense. This is an upscale location compared to some of the other “dockside” restaurants in Newport. It’s off the beaten track and there’s none of the hustle and bustle of the more touristy places. Our fellow diners were mostly hotel guests, families enjoying the night in front of one of the many fire pits with their well-behaved children, or visitors like us, nicely attired and prepared to pay for a leisurely dockside dinner.

    Reserved inside dining, but we were only given the option of a busy deck on a windy day as there was no inside dining room. Service was very slow with no table bussing after so we sat with a pile of dirty dishes. Food was not good, lobster roll was full of shells, and everything was very overpriced. Disappointing experience.

    Menu was limited but we found items to order. The hot and cold Caesar salad was unique but excellent. We both enjoyed it. My husband ordered the pasta with veal bolgonese and although he said it tasted good the portion was more like a side dish of pasta with a small splattering of sauce. I had the salmon which came with about 4 tiny potatoes and succotash that was mostly Lima beans. We were celebrating our mutual birthdays and were planning on having dessert but the menu was extremely limited. I’m celiac and must eat gluten free but the only offerings were gelato. Very disappointing. A family member had left their credit card to pay for our meal but the waiter didn’t know anything about it. We asked so we could be sure they weren’t also charged and our waitperson didn’t make an attempt to find out. All in all it was a disappointing experience.

    Service was painfully slow and terrible. Our waitress was friendly and we could tell it wasn’t her fault, but we were waiting for an hour just to get some bread and when it came out it was cold. Food was over cooked and nothing special but it was good

    Best outdoor patio fine dining spot in Newport. The string lights, fire tables and music create a vibrant South Beach Miami type of feel. Menu has everything you'd expect from an upscale Newport restaurant and the service is outstanding, even on a busy night.

    Unexpectedly and happily, we were seated outside. It was a gorgeous Summer evening-poised for sunset. Three of us split two appetizers- the wedge salad and the buratta salad. Our entrees were delicious, rigatoni with meat sauce and two of us shared a Bronzini entree. Aside from a decadent dessert (Mocha Tiramisu) the view snd sunset were the star of the evening. Service was good.

    Online menu for the fire pits did not match actual experience. We were hoping to enjoy a burger and truffle fries at sunset per the website menu, but we're advised only $100+ steaks available. With that said, we ordered other appetizers that were delicious....but would love for them to bring back the burger!

    Went for dinner. The picture shown in Showfish Newport RI is not the correct pic - believe this is taken from New York Showfish. Very misleading. No boothes as shown in pic. Service is understaffed making wait times from beginning to end painfull. Food not really that great. Outdoor seating showed bird droppings on railings which run along tables. Pricing very high for the low quality served. Advise to be very carefull. We were very disappointed.

    Unfortunately the service was very poor. Food was fine. The host worked hard to get us a nice table and then it went downhill. Server got the drinks wrong and then messed up our food order. Our main course arrived before we were done with appetizers and we had to clear our own plates. Didn’t see our server at all until 20 minutes after we were done eating at which time he came and asked us if we wanted more drinks. Maybe they are just understaffed but doesn’t make up for amateur mistakes.

    Service was horrible, starting with the host. We had a reservation and he was rude and did not accommodate our outdoor reservation made 4 months in advance, despite there being multiple large tables available. Further, when we were rudely thrown at a dirty table inside, our server spilt our drinks on us when putting them down. Our food was cold. Expected MUCH better from Gurneys. Will not be coming here again not recommending to anyone coming to Newport.

    We sat outside for dinner. It was nice and music playing in the background gave it a nice vibe. The service was excellent all around and our server Yvonne was engaging and fantastic. The menu was varied and way better than average. We had the Tuna Poke and clam chowder to start and both were great. Dinner we chose the Halibut which was wonderfully prepared and a pasta dish. Desert we chose the gelato. Everything was amazing. One of the best dining experiences this summer.

    We were definitely expecting more. The angry lobster was great! Unfortunately the filets that we ordered were over cooked. My husband ordered rare and I ordered medium rare. Both came out medium well and the main took so long to come out that we didn’t want to wait for another to be cooked. The creamed spinach side was flavorless. We expected impeccable food and it was mediocre overall.

    As guests of the hotel, my husband and I dined here last night. We ordered some apps that were decent then proceeded to order our dinner. I ordered a filet to be cooked rare, while my husband asked for the halibut. Unfortunately, my steak came out medium well- warm, pink. Much to my husband’s dismay, I sent the steak back. (For $70.00, the chef should know how to cook a steak.) About 5-6 minutes later, I received ANOTHER poorly cooked steak- still grossly overcooked. I decided to only eat the small portion in the center that still had a bit of flavor remaining. The service is good, the staff is friendly. The chef should not be allowed to offer a filet on his menu if he doesn’t know how to prepare it.

    Beautiful setting and very good food. Unfortunately the inattentive service detracts from what otherwise would be a very positive review. We were seated and it took 20 minutes for a server to come to our table and ask us if we’d like a drink. We also overheard the couple at the next table ask a server when they walked by if they could take their food order as they were sitting for a very long time.

    Greeted at hostess desk and showed to our table by Katie. She said "You can rearrange the furniture however you like." as opposed to resetting the table so one of the diners' back would face the fabulous view instead of a wall. Soup almost fell onto one diners' lap when served. Wedge salad - classic & difficult to get wrong - was almost inedible, no blue cheese to be found but LOTS of vinegar in the dressing. Pasta dish w/ meat sauce had barely any meat. Petite filet was maybe 4 oz., most restaurants' standard is 6 oz. Asparagus was woody. Glass of Caymus wine at $28 was the best part of the meal. Ridiculously overpriced with poor service. Especially disappointing since we are locals and love the location. Will not be returning.

    Ir took 45 minutes to get bread- over an hr to get our apps- which were cold. When we told the manager, he dropped an “Fbomb” at the table. 1 of our cocktails came in a chipped glass at which point it was exchanged for another glass- which took almost 20 minutes. The food and presentation was fabulous but the feint of the house was poorly managed.
