Safari Room Restaurant
6 Jumbo Shrimp
New England Clam Chowder

Beautiful spot with a terrific view of the water.
Great outdoor seating with an amazing view especially at sunset.
I’m grateful they accommodated my food intolerances however the food was plain, dried and under seasoned. Gluten-free and dairy-free don’t have to be that way.
Dean was an excellent waiter. He was helpful and informative. Everything was wonderful!
Dinner at the Safari Room was excellent! The Lobster Mac and Cheese was to die for and the Crabcake was a delicious starter. We also really enjoyed the Swordfish for a main entree and the shortcake for dessert! The service was a little slow, but perhaps this was due to limiting contact with Servers. For those worried to eat out during COVID-19, this restaurant was taking extra precautions - questioning guests upon arrival, well spaced tables, and one entrance in/out of the building should you need to use the restroom.
An absolute must if in the Newport area and looking for a great meal with a great view! Our server was a pleasure to talk with and was very attentive. I had the pan roasted chicken which had a great flavor and my husband had the salmon which was just as good. We sat outside overlooking the ocean and the sailboats coming by. There is also a great view of the Newport bridge. If you would like to stay a bit longer and have a drink and relax, there are chairs on the grass area down by the water.
Overall the experience was disappointing. It was a nice surprise to receive a glass of sparklingly wine at arrival, as we were celebrating our anniversary with a nice dinner out. In the booking, requested a table closest to the water, but that was not honored even though there were several available and other couples were sat in those right after us. The cheese board we ordered was delicious, but that was where the nice night ended. Our server was overwhelmed, managing several tables (one large bachelorette group) that were sat at the same time. Each of us had long waits for everything and heard lots of apologies during the night. My husband enjoyed his oysters and the fish and chips was okay. My lobster Mac and cheese was awful. I ate some of the lobster, but the cheese sauce was tasteless and made everything bland and gooey. Unfortunately no one stopped by to see how everything was, so I had no chance to even tell the server. Between dinner being subpar and the service spotty, we skipped dessert and went home. I actually spent the rest of the night not feeling well- the lobster Mac and cheese didn’t sit well at all. Overall, it was a disappointing dinner for what was supposed to be our special night out in Newport.
Overall great. View was amazing and staff was so nice
Amazing view and very nice staff!
Great view, pleasant atmosphere! Creative fare for a Variety of pallets.
Had an excellent lunch here! The service was top-notch, and the view is superb! Almost forgot to say that the food was delicious too! Can’t wait to come back
We had a wonderful, memorable night at the Safari Room. We ate on the outside patio; the tables were well-spaced and the view was magnificent. Our waiter, Stephen, was attentive and friendly, and he provided great recommendations for our selections. The chowder was outstanding; and both the scallops and swordfish entrees were delicious. We will definitely be back. Our best evening out during our trip to Newport this year!
Delicious food with fantastic views! Perfect!
Truly amazing experience! Our server was knowledgeable, sweet, kind and personable! The food and drinks were way beyond our expectations! We will be back!
Other then a pretty view of the water this restaurant is terrible with high pricing. Also the hotel attached same thing... nothing but a pretty view everything else sucks
Beautiful atmosphere..friendly staff and delicious food!
Thank you for taking extra care and providing effortless protocols given all things COVID.
Looking forward to my next visit 😊
The view, the service 👍, far value , drinks a little pricey. Always special to dine outside.
The Safari Room did an excellent job complying with social distancing regulations and the staff was awesome!
My Birthday safari room is my favorite place food is fantastic service and the view is outstanding
Amazing view .....delectable food and impeccable
service! We will surely be back! Thank you
Great love it n the views!
Drinks were delicious! Highly recommend the swordfish. Truly hit the spot. And the view is stunning - even at night.
The setting is spectacular. We were there at sunset. The service was very good with Amanda.
We both liked our meals and the prices were reasonable. I had 1/2 dozen little neck clams to begin served over ice with 2 dipping sauces. They were excellent. I had the seared scallops with a nice mix of veg, also very good.
Will definitely go back.
We had an incredible time at dinner at the Safari room. The view alone was spectacular and the food made it even better. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Newport.
The service and food was outstanding and the view was breathtaking. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Food, service, sunset, social distancing. Everything was 5-star! They even offered us bug spray at the table after dark.
Amazing views, delicious food and courteous staff. Hidden Gem in Newport
Outstanding is an under statement. Would highly recommend!
The Safari room does not disappoint! We were there on a hot evening but with the ocean breezes you actually could have used a light sweater or wrap. The menu has something for everyone including some fun drink options. For appetizers we had the pretzels (4 log style super soft, plenty to share, would love a cheese sauce option rather than just mustard), clam chowder (large bowl and very tasty) and the tuna (nicely presented, flavorful, Asian flare). Dinner consisted of the salmon, halibut and hamburger. All were delicious and nicely prepared. The sunset was not on the menu but it was one of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen. We know that’s just luck but it rounded out the perfect evening. Staff very pleasant and efficient and the Safari Room follows all covid guidelines which we really appreciate!
They need a bigger menu. I was hoping for seafood pasta or more steak options. What they do have on the menu is excellent however. Highly recommend the cheese board.
Wonderful afternoon spent with friends dining outdoor. The view of the water and sailboats was beautiful. After lunch we enjoyed a cocktail, sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the lawn.
Diner in the restaurant was excellent great service. Next night sat on chairs on lawn was told same service. Waited 40 minutes before we had to go find a staff member to order from. After we got a bottle of wine and assigned a waiter, he didn’t come over for more than an hour. Food was excellent!!! Service on the lawn needs a lot of work. Some tiki torches on lawn would be helpful to keep bugs away also.
We were there for our 10th Wedding Anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it special. Beautiful location and great service!
great food beautiful view friendly staff reasonable prices
Excellent setting, food was amazing including huge selection of oysters (the boss). Only downside was mosquitos near the lawn after 8:30pm, better on the deck near the water. Suggest you wear heavy deet repellent.
it was a very nice experience. the view is a 10 , service slow and hard to get items like silverware. needs a good manager to oversee the dining and the restsurant can be nicely upgraded.
Enjoyed scenery, food quality, service, great experience
Wonderful ambience and view
The best view to enjoy while having a meal. Great food and cocktails. The cheese board is amazing! Steve provided excellent serve with a great friendly attitude. Highly recommend this place.
The food was great, the service was great and the view was great. We were pleased to be able to eat outdoors and the tables were far apart. All the waiters were in masks and the food was covered when it arrived at our table.
It was my sister's birthday and the waiter brought out a piece of cake after out lunch.
