Contemporary American | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

This was my second meal at Cara. I was spending time in Newport to simply enjoy Newport as well as celebrate my birthday. I had told Cara that I was celebrating my birthday so I was curious to see what would happen. Not only did every single server wish me Happy Birthday, but I also had a lovely Happy Birthday sign made in chocolate added to my dessert. It was a fantastic meal - just as delicious as my first time there. It was a little more quiet this time since it was the off season, but there was still a lot of people in the dining area. I was seated in one of the "prime" seats in the quiet area of the dining room where I could watch the ocean through the glass windows. It was also restaurant week so I did get to enjoy some specialty items that might not otherwise have been on the typical menu. The service was fantastic as well - I never felt rushed or ignored. I'll definitely be coming back! More

Every Spring we love to visit Newport, RI. We enjoy trying different restaurants. This restaurant is a hidden gem and we will definitely put it on our list of “Regulars”. The staff is very personable and friendly. We sat at the bar for a Before dinner drink and the hostess saved a lovely window table for us. The martinis were perfect. The dinner was delicious and unbelievably priced for the quality of the food. More

Great spot, lovely views and people, great food. Watch out though, they will hit you with parking fees. Sign says they validate, but it’s only a partial validation.....so after everything.....an additional $7 hit. Not happy about that. More

Italian | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

Great evening! We started with live music by Steve Cirelli in the bar overlooking the deck at Gurneys. Try the Italian Manhattan to slip into your Friday evening. Food and service were top notch - started with braised short ribs over polenta, followed by roasted chicken with spring vegetables. I also love the homemade spaghetti. There desserts are not to be missed either! Staff is always very attentive and friendly. More

amazing food and service. We went for Easter dinner with my family and my sister and niece. We ordered appetizers and a huge seafood platter. It was so fresh and beautiful and delicious, we couldn't finish our meals. The room they put us in for 8 people was the wine room, and it was private and classy, and gorgeous, and tucked away. But they did not forget about us at all-very attentive staff! More

My friend had been here before and said the food was very good and she was right. We were seated immediately and we both ended up getting the Lobster Roll - she had the onion soup and I tasted it and it was really good. The lobster roll was just that, lobster that had been warm butter poached and that was it and it was great! Will definitely be returning! More

We dined at Bar and Board during our family visit to Newport from Boston. We were 6 people including two kids. Location is great, atmosphere of the restaurant is even better. Building used to be a bank, People's Credit Union. It is beautifully restored to create Bar and Board. I really liked the big bank safe (a must see) in the bar area, stylish chairs, candles on the tables and window sills really adds up to the atmosphere. We started with three appetizers, calamari, fried feta and bread board. All three was beyond this world. We were all impressed with the taste. I also need to say our servant, Tate, was great too, he explained us all the specials, made recommendations, and most importantly he was quick. For the main entree, we had burgers for the kids, steak-frites, and crispy chicken pasta. Everybody was amazed with how delicious food was. Kids normally don't finish their food but this time, both burgers were gone, And we didn't wait long for the food to be served. Timing of service was amazing. We also had creme brulee as the desert which was another hit. I have not eaten in such a good restaurant for a while including some high end Boston and Cambridge restaurants. This place is a gem from its atmosphere, to service to amazing food. I highly recommend it! More

As a "local," we often avoid hotel restaurants. I stand corrected (at least off-season). Excellent meal - home-made Italian Wedding Soup, delicious fried clam appetizer, Lobster Boil Clambake. Chef came to table to explain he only had 1/2 order of clams (fresh clam order did not come in); very thoughtful and always nice to meet Chef. Very slow night in the restaurant - being "spruced up" while we were there but not intrusive. Service was excellent. Thank you. We'll be back! More
