My wife and I were there for her birthday & the food was exquisite! Cole our waiter was fantastic & made sure our evening was the best it could be. The Chef was equally accommodating & made a special request come true and it was absolutely fabulous! Every staff member was friendly & attentive. The menu offered the choice of a 3, 5 or 6 course meal with wine pairings as well. The portions were not overwhelming large, but more than adequate to satisfy an appetite, but if you are a big plate eater, this isn't going to be enough...but your taste buds will enjoy it! Price wise it's on the more expensive side of the palate, but we were looking for a special place for a special occasion & this place did not disappoint! For those special occasions where you want to impress, this is the place. The views of the ocean would have been an added bonus, but at this time of the year it was dark outside at 7PM, but during the Spring and Summer..the views will only add to your experience. More

Was my girlfriends birthday and we had a nice weekend getaway in Newport. This was our last breakfast before shopping on the town. We had a nice water front view, service was great as we were one of the few ones here in the offseason. Food was cooked beautifully and presentation was great. Cannot wait to come back in the summer the outside deck looks amazing for brunch More

Went there to listen to Jazz and have dinner. We were welcomed by a great hostess who gave us a table in the bar when she realized we wanted to hear the music. We ordered a very reasonable bottle of wine and we each had a salad. For our entrée we decided on a Margaretta pizza which was great; the best in my opinion in the area. Looking forward to a return visit. More

We love the buffet brunch at the Marriott Mainsail restaurant. It has a variety of foods to satisfy any palate. Delicious waffles and omelettes made to order. A variety of fresh fruits with homemade whipped cream. A variety of breakfast breads, pastries and muffins. Eggs, breakfast meats and home fries. Steel cut oatmeal! You can enjoy a relaxing brunch with a view of Newport harbor. The servers are very friendly. An enjoyable, delicious brunch!! More

Mexican | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

Great food, consistent, great cocktails. Party of five and seated immediately for an open table reservation. Good service. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Guac and street corn are great. Two of our party had the carne asada with yuca fries and raved about it. Have been several times and always enjoy the food. Arrived just in time for a perfect sunset over the water. Noise level is always high at prime times so not great for anyone that has hearing issues, but still one of my favorite places. Prefer this location to the main restaurant. Many of the portions are more sharing size and that suits my appetite, but they do have regular mains as well. More
