    Beautiful location. Restaurant was not busy at all, however, the service was extremely slow. Maybe because of wedding at the venue?? Ordered chowder (came out cold) and 2 drinks in an hour and a half while waiting for entrees. Ended up cancelling food and leaving. Will not return

    Waited 35 minutes after our reservation time to get seated. Table was available the entire time but was told we were waiting on it (I’m guessing it was a staffing issue and they didn’t want to say that, but it’s better than just a random inaccurate excuse). The hostess was less than helpful but our waitress was lovely. Food was good but not great. Everyone recommended this spot coming to Newport but we were most definitely underwhelmed/disappointed. Would not recommend.

    Second year in a row we came for my husbands birthday..last year it was incredible so we decided to book again being that the view is just unforgettable. The bottle of wine we ordered had just sold their last bottle which was disappointing. The pretzel appetizer was good but our meals were underwhelming. I had the salmon and while it was supposed to be crusted, it was pure sauce on top and the fish was way undercooked. My husband had the lemon clam pasta and while it look good he said it was just ok. Service was ok..we had our apps before we even got our wine and my daughter waited so long for the Parmesan cheese that her pasta was cold. Everyone enjoyed the s’mores brownie! We won’t be back next year.

    Staff was courteous and very helpful. My dish was served five minutes before my wife's dish came out. Wife's sandwich was soggy from the salad that was served on same plate. These two avoidable mistakes took away from our oveall enjoyment. The restaurant was not busy. The mud pie ice cream desert saved the day.
