I’m officially obsessed with the the fried shrimp tacos. There isn’t a single thing I’d change and the flavors were beyond. The Smokey mai tai is another winner. The food was amazing. Service was good and environment was good. Nothing to really pick apart but if I had to make one suggestion, I’d ease up on the salted rim on the salted caramel martini. I know how contradictory that sounds but I took a sip and the salted overpowered the flavor of the cocktail which itself was delicious. We’re definitely coming back this summer because I’m coming for those tacos 😍
The food was average, the service was fine.
Excellent and attentive service. Very friendly staff, and no complaints on the food.
We were treated like VIPs! We had reservations and when we were seated, there was a table of 6 across from us. They were extremely loud and not at all concerned with other people in the restaurant. We asked to sit elsewhere, but there were no other tables available. Stephanie (our server) went to talk to the manager. They ended up seating us at the restaurant next door where we were the only ones! It was wonderful!!! Stephanie was still very attentive and she didn't forget we were there. The food was also excellent! We were thrilled with the whole experience.....so a big 'thank you' to the Manager and Stephanie at Skiff Bar for really taking excellent care of us!
I absolutely love this location by the water! The Marriott itself is excellent and this little restaurant is great for a sit down lunch. We have even had dinner here before. There aren’t many options but the options they do have are pretty delicious! Our go to are either the BLT, wings or a simple salad! We stopped in quick before heading over to the Newport Mansions today. We were in and out within less than 45 minutes!
Very good experience on Valentine’s Day.
Food was terrible, salmon was dry and rice tasted like it was out of a box, waited forever for the food even though the restaurant was empty.
Do not recommend!!!
Food was great! Servicer was great! The breakfast area was a bit "Sterile" with the all white...BUT food and service were great!
Had drinks and appetizers. Both were just fine. On par with any other Marriott.
Excellent. Food was delicious, staff friendly, extremely clean and safe
My husband and I were celebrating my birthday in Newport and are staying at the Marriott . We had originally had a reservation at The Mooring, but after seeing the beautiful decor and menu decided to cancel and go to the Skiff. We were very happy we did! Our experience from start to finish was excellent. The hostess could not do enough to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Our waiter was genuinely happy to serve us and offered many recommendations and the bartender makes an amazing martini. They should be very proud of their staff and the food was plentiful and delicious.
Stephanie is amazing
Rudest bartender/waitress I have EVER met.
Great experience from start to finish. Very attentive service and tasty food. My Fish was perfectly cooked and my girls got generous portions of a Butternut squash risotto and fish and chips. My youngest loved the Buffalo chicken soup starter. The only Knick was that they were out of the dessert I wanted.
Food was only fair, not worth the price. Would not go back.
Great service great food and great view would come back again
Very nice place for breakfast, excellent food and service.
Wonderful view and delicious food!
The Marriott needs to work on their heat lamps in the Skiff Bar because they don’t always work.
Other than that, the atmosphere is good with a wonderful view and it’s great for outdoor seating. I had fish and chips which were delicious and a wonderful cocktail!
The highlight of dining at the Skiff Bar is being served by IKEA (i’m sorry; I know this is the wrong spelling of her name.)
She is a true professional in every sense of the word. She’s knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and one of the reasons friends and I choose to have dinner there.
Visit the Skiff Bar and hopefully you will have IKEA as your server. You’ll leave after having a nice meal, a wonderful experience and and having made a good friend!
BEST clam chowder! We went back next day for lunch, just for chowder,INCREDIBLE
Breakfast on a birthday weekend. The crispy French toast was so yummy as well as the western omelet.
The food was great and the service was even better. Keia was awesome.
We had 2 breakfast and it was great service and safe
Guests at the Marriott.. Breakfast was included so can't speak for the value.. Eggs benedict was fantastic.. Husband had home made corned beef hash and he loved it!!
The food was fantastic and we had a great view
We had an early breakfast due to the planned departure time of our touring group, but it worked out perfectly. We received vouchers for breakfast from the Marriott due to the lounge being closed, but would have opted to dine at Skiff anyway. The decor and atmosphere were pleasing and we received excellent service from our server, Holly.
The outdoor patio has been upgraded to a wonderful dinner experience with comfortable seating and plenty of heaters. The food was upgrades from bar food as well.
My husband had the clam chowder and lobster roll; I had fish and chips. The food was fine. No complaints. The service was quick
My first lobster omelette! Delicious!
Beautiful view of the harbor; great ambiance!
Dennis is great
Space was very open due to COVID. Hostess and servers were great - very friendly and food was excellent. We'd definitely eat there again.
Great service and great food
Good quiet place for breakfast with a view of the harbor. Ate here three days and our servers, Jackie and Marie were excellent.
The breakfast menu has something for everyone including corned beef hash, omelets and the New England Plate which was my favorite.....scrambled eggs with many delicious pieces of lobster, served over Canadian bacon topped english muffins topped with hollandaise sauce, don't miss it!
Breakfast was great
I would highly recommend it👍👍
Its a hotel restaurant but a very good breakfast. Nice and quiet with a beautiful view.
Overall experience was great. Kitchen just took a little too long with food. Server was good
Beautiful view and the food and drinks were absolutely delicious.
We returned here mostly for the great Clam Chowder. It's among the best we've had and this time we tried the Fish Tacos appetizer which was fantastic too! Service was friendly and prompt. It's not inexpensive, but for Newport, RI, it's probably mid-price range. We had another enjoyable visit and plan to return soon.
Our waitress was delightful.
Great spot and the service was excellent! We would definitely go back.
