Service was excellent. Restaurant was chilly and reading the menu was difficult in the dim lighting. Lobster Mac and Cheese was amazing. Chowder was fishy, beef tartare was overpowered by cracker and pumpkin spread, Beef Wellington was undercooked - twice. The chocolate mousse which we took to go did not have roasted peanuts on it, it was walnuts - someone made it wrong and it ruined the dish.
App, good; entre, very good; desert poor; service, very good; overal, expensive.
Very elegant evening. The atmosphere was lovely; waitstaff very attentive and food was amazing. Would recommend this lovely restaurant. We celebrated my husband birthday and the staff thoughtfully brought dessert with a candle. So thoughtful and attentive to detail. Will visit again definately.
Would go back! Food was excellent! Great flavor combinations
Fantastic service, delicious food, beautiful atmosphere!
The quaint tavern style ambiance was warm and welcoming, we were seated beside a fireplace and our server was phenomenal. We had an excellent meal and it would be the first place we’d recommend to anyone visiting Newport. A true treat!
Enjoyed the historic aspect of the building and cozy ambiance with the warmth from the fireplaces. Didn’t realize Sunday had a Prix Fixe menu which offered just the right portion size and top menu selections.
We enjoyed a delicious meal. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. It was a treat to be in this historic building but still enjoy current food options. So well done.
Excellent food. Service and staff were great as was the atmosphere.
Atmosphere is fantastic-old house, comfy and warm with a great fireplace. They did a great job managing through Covid issues with appropriately spaced tables. I had hoped we would have had an explanation of what everything was on the charcuterie board before we were done with it, but everything was delicious. The dessert also was not edible and the waitstaff didn’t notice I took one bite and was hoping someone would ask how it was. Overall, would come back, it’s a great place.
First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the dissatisfaction with the dessert that was ordered. I will pass this information over to our Executive Chef so we can correct any shortcomings in the kitchen. We always strive to make every dish perfect every time but on occasion we do miss the mark and for that I am sorry. I hope you will join us again soon. My Best, Jarred LaPlante General Manager
We had drinks and dinner, it was warm by the fireplace and great history!
Hi. Went back after many years. It’s during Covid and they were very careful about protecting us n every way. The staff is warm and welcoming. It was lunch so they had a limited menu. The food was ok, nothing wow. Good Caesar-but if you’re looking for a classic American restaurant Caesar you might be disappointed. Basically I’m hopped salad with a delicious dressing and small heavily seeded crumbled, not croutons. Cuban Reuben was tasty. Jumbo shrimp cocktail was fresh but simple.
A wonderful lunch. Excellent service and food. Will definitely return for another time. Thanks
The food was not as good as I expected, for what is supposed to be a higher quality restaurant and for the price.
Thank you for taking the time to review White Horse Tavern. I am incredibly disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your meal. Would you be able to elaborate a little more on what you did not enjoy? This way I can speak with our Executive Chef to correct these issues from happening again in the future. My Best, Jarred LaPlante General Manager
Everything about dinning was prefect at The White Horse Tarven.
Jenessa in the downstairs bar was outstanding, great service, great personality, she made the night
Everything about White Horse Tavern was amazing! The ambiance was really cozy, we were seated upstairs near the fire place. The food was delicious and TK was a great server! I am already looking forward to dining here again.
The Banana pie dessert looked amazing upon presentation but once you cut into it was a sloppy gooey mess,too sweet and inedible. Otherwise meal was delicious
First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the dissatisfaction with your Banana Cream Pie. I will pass this information over to our Executive Chef so we can correct any shortcomings in the kitchen. Whenever you are not totally satisfied with any item please let a member of our staff know so we are able to fix the issue while you are still dining with us. My Best, Jarred LaPlante General Manager
Such a great experience to dine at the White Horse. Everything from the food to the servers to the atmosphere was phenomenal.
We visited the restaurant because of its history. Although the food was well presented, we felt that the price of the appetizer we had was high.
Kendra Starr's dessert's are amazing. I am not a dessert person but found my fork diving into pate de choux a la creme again and again to enjoy the praline.
Tim, our waiter made our anniversary; so special despite the COVID restrictions. Between his stoking of the fire and his bon vivant style , he made us feel like we were a world away. We truly felt special and appreciate the extra efforts of all parts of the house.
Thank you to all your efforts. I was nervous about dining inside and appreciated how tables were space out and seated.
Maureen, I am glad to see that you enjoyed your evening with us. I hope you will come visit us again soon! My Best, Jarred LaPlante General Manager
Very much enjoyed our experience at the White Horse Tavern. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was comfortable and captured the history of the tavern. My husband and I had the beef Wellington which was delicious. My only reason for not giving the food five stars was because I felt the portion of beef Wellington was a bit small for the price charged for the dish. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again when back in town.
The Best, The Oldest and the Cocktails and Food are Amazing! Great Sunday on a cold January Afternoon! Staff and management were so accommodating!
Everything about the experience was beyond outstanding.
Visited with family and was greeted with a special private room on the first floor in the Tavern. Such a special afternoon in The Oldest Tavern in America! Our server was Amazing and the staff could not have been more pleasant. The Chef is really talented btw.
We love Keith!!!
Wonderful place. Great food and service in an amazing place with so much history. Didn’t expect the food to be so delicious.
The food was OK the shrimp cocktail was very very good Clams were very salty and Sandy the waiter did not know the difference between a cappuccino and a cup of espresso and a banana cake couldn’t not taste any banana it’s just a big cookie with whip cream on it slightly disappointed it’s not where we thought would not be going back
Excellent food and service!!!!! Friendly waiter. Gorgeous building!!! Loved every second!!
We enjoyed the White Horse Tavern. The food was delicious. Our only concern was the value vs. the experience. This was an expensive meal...and it was great, but I'm not sure it was to the level we expected.
The food and the service are always great, I have been there many times and never been disappointed.
A must try restaurant. Setting feels like you are transported back to the 1700's but food is contemporary and well prepared. Not trendy, just elegant.
Awesome meal. Quiet, in front of the fireplace. Great service and food.
Very satisfied with the experience. It was an intimate and cozy atmosphere and the food was very complementary.
My husband and I went for our New Year’s Eve dinner a day early. The setting was beautiful and service was top notch as always. My hubby had the short ribs and I had the catch of the day which was swordfish over sweet potatoes, chorizo, okra and they were both delicious. Tim, our server, was great. Quick service and friendly with suggestions and helpful hints. We felt very safe as the tables were certainly spread out with lots of room in between. From our cocktails (Smoked old fashion and winter sangria) to dessert which was a chocolate marscapone cake, it was all fresh and delicious.
Lovely evening at an Historic Restaurant. Food was delicious and service was just as good. Enjoyed the beautiful fire
Best duck I ever tasted! And I’ve had some good duck.
The food was phenomenal
Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and wine menu! Definitely Will be back.
Had the best lunch here!!! All the tables were very socially distanced and far apart. Hostess sat us by a lovely fire & the ambiance was really great. Great service & food. All the necessary precautions were taken. Would definitely come back!
