Outstanding dinner and service......worth a detour to this spot
Service is outstanding, polite, felt like a princess. Only thing is small portions, and 1 salmon dinner was undercooked and 2 salmon dinners overcooked. And the white chocolate mouse was too sweet like vanilla frosting. Bread and butter is homemade in restaurant.
Exceptional service and exceptional and creative culinary menu. Would highly recommend restaurant as one of Newport's finest.
The restaurant was empty for most of our meal on a Friday evening. The room was very cold. My steak was ordered as rare to med rare but it came medium to well done and dry. It was precut into slices on my plate and cold by the time I ate it. The other entree was grilled tuna and was good. Their wines were limited and we had to choose a few from their menu before they had one on hand. Dessert was boring and small. Fruit tarts were actually very hard cookies with pie-type fruit filling. Our other dessert included chocolate puff pastry which was hard as a rock and shot across the room when we cut into it. Meal was very overpriced for what was delivered. Service was good.
had a lovely meal, very relaxed, maureen was terrific
Heavenly! Overall you can't go wrong, and they have a number of gluten free options. Glorious.
My friend and I visited while touring the mansions. It was the best brunch we've ever had! She ordered Eggs Benedict and I had the Greek omelette. The hostess was SO friendly and when asked, told us the history of Vanderbilt Grace which was quite interesting. The outdoor setting was peaceful and beautiful. If I weren't 5 hours away, I'd go back several times a year.
The food was phenomenal.!! I had the best grilled lobster and the steak my husband had was so tender and flavorful. I read a negative comment about the portions. If you want huge portions then don't go. The food is worth the price. A must go to if you are a foodie and farm to table person.
Dining at night in a garden in Newport. ... perfect
100% Dissatisfied !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very small entree portions,
Service was excellent.
It was a beautiful setting with excellent and attentive service.
unfortunately nothing we ate was special, especially for $100.
The inexpensive meal we had the next night was more tasty and satisfying.
Great secluded gem for a romantic dinner or intimate group. Garden dining beautiful.
Quiet retreat dining in downtown Newport. The food is seasonal and farm fresh, an inspired menu that is simple yet elegant. Good wine list, nice garden terrace dining, nothing rushed, secret in the hustle of busy Newport.
I can not confirm some of the negative reviews. We experienced utmost courtesy and professionalism by the entire staff, from the moment we entered the hotel/restaurant. Our server, Maureen, deserves a special mention as she was particularly friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was very nice (not too busy or loud), with beautiful live piano music in the background. The food was delicious, but as other reviewers have stated, portions are on the small side, so you certainly need to add an appetizer, and perhaps even a (delicious) desert. The result, of course, is a dinner bill that is not on the cheap side. However, it is worth it, and we have no hesitation recommending this gem of a restaurant for dinner.
