    Excellent Portuguese food with terrific and accommodating service to back it up. We had chicken Mozambique and Portuguese Steaks as our main courses, and they were delicious and melt-in-your mouth. The grilled Caesar salad was one of the best I've ever had, and the the Mozambique fries as an appetizer were great (and Eddie, our waiter, was more than willing to customize to our wants). Finished with delicious chocolate mousse cake (vanilla mousse, chocolate mousse, and chocolate cake) and an Americano. Definitely a must try if you are near Fall River.

    The staff was excellent. Even busy they waiter made us feel like he never forgot we were there. Food was very good. We ordered a bit much. It was a bit confusing with essentially two restaurants being run out of the same building. They do a beautiful job with celebrations.

    We were greeted at the door and led into the dining room which was beautifully decorated. Dozens of long stem red roses hung from the ceiling and created a cool atmosphere. We were short of time because we were going to see a show at the Narrows. The host and waiter were very gracious and accommodated our time frame without making the experience feel rushed. They recommended an excellent bottle of wine to complement the delicious appetizers and entrée. It was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to go back!

    Service was EXTREMELY slow. Took 20 minutes for our waiter to come over. Then Took almost a half hour just for drinks. Out of stock of every wine I asked for then offered me what they had. The food was good but everything was very oily. Also for a place that calls themselves an “oyster bar” you should have more then one type of oysters available

    First time, it will not be the last! The ambiance was excellent, the service was impeccable. From the welcoming greeting we received from Paul, the owner, to the courteous and attentive service from our waiter Anderson, and the food was truly outstanding. This place is a gem, I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed.

    We were coming from Newport and decided to try something different and new for us on the way back. We found the Towne House Tapas bar and it was fabulous. The restaurant is divided into multiple different areas. It was really cool and smartly done. Haven’t been to a restaurant with a jewelry store in it but they have one. The food was outstanding. Really done well. We started with littlenecks in a really excellent broth which were really tasty. My wife raved about her salmon entree and she’s picky about salmon. I had queijo steak with cheese and garlic and pesto which was really tasty and different. The wine list is extensive. Our waiter couldn’t be any better. Really attentive and pleasant. The owner came over and gave us a tour of the establishment which was really nice. Will definitely return when in the area.

    For starters, we were not actually seated where we reserved. Our hope was to sit for some tapas/apps and drinks and then go out for the evening. Once we walked in we were sat in the steakhouse side; I addressed that we wanted to sit on the tapas side of the restaurant, and we were told it didn’t matter because they had merged the menu. 20 minutes later we still hadn’t been greeted or given water. Granted we were waiting on two people, but I don’t feel that should have prevented us from getting served drinks at least while we wait. I approached the hostess to tell her and they rectified that quickly; however, the drinks too a while to come. I saw other tables complaining about this as well and saying they thought they drinks had been forgotten. We put in appetizers and decided to get some food cuz we were hungry at this point. We sat at 730 and by 9pm still had no food. Wait staff were apologetic and I feel for them but this was ridiculous. When our apps did come out we were missing one. I asked what happened and was told it was being made to come out with entrees but they could rush it. The food finally came after 10pm. Waitress kept apologizing to us and offered us a round of shots, which we declined since we’re not really into shots. The food was excellent; however, we were upset since we wanted to just get some quick food and drinks before going out and now had to cancel plans for the rest of the evening given that it was after 1030pm by the time all was said and done. We try to be understanding given we know how the pandemic has impacted the industry, but this entire experience was just odd, painfully slow, and made for a tough night. Won’t return for a while, hope they can right the ship since the food was really good.

    First time going to restaurant. Bartender was very inexperienced and our drinks were very sweet, very watery, and overall disappointing. Apps were clearly just frozen BUT our entrees were delicious.

    I have been to this restaurant a few time. I am pregnant. The last two times I went, I ordered a virgin sangria aka juice. Well today, even though I asked the waitress, Tatiana, about the charge she still charged me for an actual sangria and said she could not change it because it’s the same ingredient. The most expensive part of sangria is the wine. There was no wine. This is absolutely not ok. I shouldn’t have paid $11 for a wine glass full of juice. That’s like saying, I’ll charge you for a rum and coke even though you got soda... the only similar ingredient is the cheap mixer. $11 isn’t breaking the bank, their food is not cheap. It’s the fact that you shouldn’t charge people for alcohol when they, in fact, did not order any. I should have said something else and fought it more, I just didn’t feel like arguing with the waitress after she already denied us.
