Our worst experience during Newport Restaurant week. We were so disappointed! Wedding next door to dining room, blasting club DJ music . The restaurant was old with tacky thatched roofs. Not even close to what they show on Line. On line it looked so sheek. Food and service were good. I ordered an unsweetened ice tea and they bought me a Snapple. Bathroom was a mess from the wedding party. Staff should have been maintaining that. Never again!

Our lunch during Restaurant Week was very nice. Nice menu choices and excellent service made for a wonderful afternoon. I loved the barbecued pork belly and my friend from Connecticut said her salmon was delicious. It was our first visit to the Safari Room and it won’t be our last!

Had a lovely lunch with family mid week. The service was exceptional, the surroundings lovely and the water view was certainly nice to have. The salmon dish was done well and the stuffed quahog and sauce were yummy. Can’t wait to return!

We were there for Restaurant Week and it was a great way to try the restaurant. All 3 courses were fabulous!! Will definitely be back in the warmer weather when we are able to enjoy the fabulous view and sit on the deck.

This restaurant was just ok. The Filet was delicious, however, I would have preferred mashed over fingerling potatoes. We ordered wine, but it tasted very odd. My husband returned his, but I drank mine although I did not enjoy it. When the bill came, I realized the 9oz Reisling was $17!! Had I known, I would have returned mine as well.

This restaurant is very outdated. The decor looks like an old, worn out tiki bar from the 60's. The food is just OK. This place needs updating all around. Would not go back.

Best lobster bisque we've ever had. Great setting, great wine, a great way to celebrate our anniversary! BTW the scampi, seared scallops, and creme brulee were also divine. Happy customers!

They were seating 'outside' on the patio which was covered and mostly sided with clear plastic (it was late September). It was still a bit cool and a great view was marred by the aforementioned, but necessary, plastic. Nonetheless the food and service were both excellent and we would return when we are next in the area.

We had a view of the water out on the deck for our anniversary and it was stunning. It was a little bit busy near the stairs and there was a wedding reception going on, but it was fun to see the bride and guests passing by. The food was amazing and we had a wonderful champagne toast. We would absolutely go again!

I would tell people the atmosphere is 2nd to none, but watch out for the wait staff. Our waitress was the least engaging person on the planet. No smile, no energy, no enthusiasm, no conversation, etc. ARGH.

We had a great time; the atmosphere was perfect as was the sunset. Our waitress didn’t mention any specials so we orders apps, entrees and dessert off the menu. I then heard a neighboring table offered a special bread pudding for the evening. The dessert was meh (tuxedo cake) the cake layer was cold, hard and dry, but the mousse layer was ok.

Beautiful view, very quiet and somewhat subdued for Sunday brunch. Food was overpriced. We had steak and eggs ($30!) , and the steak was not the quality expected (tough) and undercooked. Management was good about taking care of us due to our dissatisfaction.

I was dropping my son off at college and we brought my mother along for the trip. We wanted a special dinner to commemorate the event while we visit in Newport Rhode Island. We chose the Safari based on prior reviews. The evening was nothing short of spectacular. The service, the ambience, the food the setting and the facility were fantastic. It was one of those nights where you didn’t want the evening to end.

It was just ok. I think brunch or lunch would be a lot better because the views are beautiful. Unfortunately we went at 8pm. The food was just ok, nothing to rave about. The calamari was good but cold. I saw the tray coming, the server put it down about 6 feet away from our table, took the cover off but then turned and went somewhere else. A few minutes later someone else walked up to it, looked at the slip and then brought it over. We also needed to ask for things like silverware, bread, etc. Our server was a very kind, pleasant girl but overall the experience was just ok.
