The service was absent and the food quality is not on par with the price points. I had a much better experience dining at 22 Bowen. The seafood tower at 22 Bowen was far superior as was the service.

From the beginning was off. The rolls were hard, so hard they hardly could be eaten. The charcuterie was laughable and poorly presented. The Ceasar salad was blah. The prime rib came out cold had to send it back. The drinks were good and the dessert. Overpriced average food. Servers we inattentive. Hard pass on this place!!

Food was just okay, had black ink squid pasta and it was mediocre at best. Salmon was done very well. Dessert was also done badly.

The food was delicious and quite expensive. We split an entre, kitchen was supposed to have plated for each of us, they didn’t. When we asked for plates we were brought salad plates rather than dinner plates, for a $62 rack of lamb!
To add insult to injury, we were charged full price for a coffee refill!
The ambience was sterile, in our opinion and the servers did not interact with us at any kind of human level.
We usually go to to Bouchard’s when we are in Newport for XMAS eve and that is our standard for this type of experience.

The wait staff was very attentive.
The Noice level was very high.
I started with the calamari and it seemed very undercooked in a very small portion. My wife had the spaghetti appetizer good portion somewhat tasty not that warm. Next we both had the Caesar salad. The salad itself seem like it was a week old in a very small portion. Also there was no shredded cheese to be found and it had an anchovy in it making the whole salad very salty. She had a soda and I had a glass of water total bill came to $94. Good thing I was sitting down when I got the bill. Obviously this is for a place for people who have more money than they know what to spend it on. We will never ever go back again.

Food was spectacular. Dining room had crumbs on chair, and looked like a rough cleanup from night before. Server wasn’t very knowledgeable. Broken and chipped nails on hand are a turn off.

We found a hair in our calamari. When we told the waitress she never apologized, only responded she would tell the kitchen. When we asked the manager if the waitress had told him about it he responded he would talk to her. It was comped from our bill but there was never an apology. When we placed your order for appetizers the waitress asked if we wanted to place our meal order at the same time. We asked if we did place our meal order if we could have some time between the apps & meal & told yes. We received our meal as they were removing our app plates. Same was true with drink orders, told waitress we wanted after dinner drinks after we finished wine but it came immediately. Whole meal felt rushed even when there were open tables around us. Food was very good, lacked customer service.

We were seated promptly. After 21 minutes we asked the hostess if there was a server for our table. When the server came over she asked if we had been helped! One of the appetizers we ordered had to be sent back because it was too salty (by the way, the table next to us also sent back the same appetizer. They did remove the appetizer from our bill.

The side order or brussel sprouts arrived a few minutes after my main course had been served. A few minutes after that the soy sauce and wasabi was brought to the table (I was already half finished with my tuna).

When we finished dinner the server came over asking if we would like another drink (my glass had been empty for at least 15 minutes and the server never came over to the table during that time).

Overall, the restaurant is overpriced for the quality of food.

We were in town for parents weekend and wanted a nice place to take our daughter. We were very happy with our choice. Although we had a rather late reservation The restaurant was still a bit busy. We had a beautiful table by the window and an excellent meal. My daughter had the tomato soup and the squid ink past both of which she said were excellent. My husband had the half chicken and although on the smaller side he said it was delicious. I enjoyed the butternut squash risotto, it was a special of the evening and just perfect. We enjoyed S’mores dessert as well, just the perfect end to our meal. We would definitely return.

The restaurant was wide open when we came it and were seated at a nice table with a view. The service by the mart d/waiter took our drink order and was pleasant and efficient. We had the charcuterie board had nice selection but very small portions, like literally 1 tsp of the tomato relish. I had a soup and salad for dinner, there wasn't a cup of soup in the bowl, and the caesar salad was bare no croutons, no anchovies and no parmesan cheese. ( I had to ask for them) my dinner partner had the lobster risotto, and a vegetable side dish. All portions were undersized. We shared the dessert a coconut lemon tart and I had an espresso.
Food was good, but very mediocre as far as creativity and taste. This dinner for two was over $200. do not recommend this restaurant so many other good places to eat in Newport

My partner's granddaughter had worked there so we wanted to see it.
The prices were high by even Newport standards.
The menu was quite limited and the drinks were very expensive.
The venue in a tent like bar area was very noisy.
