The Mooring Restaurant
Our meals were very good. However we had to keep asking the service for assistance for everything. A bit frustrating.
The music was awful for dining experience! I like all types of music but it was random noise and speaker was over my head ! Couldn’t wait to get out of there . Maybe a better quality speaker .
Just my boyfriend and I regular date night.
We had a great anniversary dinner! Thank you to everyone!
Service was bad. Ordered the roasted beet appetizer and got a side of cold beets instead. Then I ordered the roasted chicken (off the gluten free menu) and they dropped off cod and the server rudely said the chicken wasn’t gluten free and said she could give me chicken without the rest of the meal because it “wasn’t gluten free” even though it was on the gf menu. Then she returned and said the chicken is gluten free and the meal came out about 10 minutes later. Then I ordered the gluten free creme brulee and it came out with 2 snickerdoodle cookies on it which she said were not gluten free. 3/3 meals were messed up. Food was good but the service was too bad for me to return.
Great food and atmosphere. Don't love disco music during dinner.
The food was excellent. The service was a little slow at the end of the meal but overall we were very pleased with the experience.
Great service, nice atmosphere. Food and drinks were great. Had to pay to park in their parking lot it was $18 for one hour
Very delicious as usual! We love The Mooring! Included a picture of the yummy broccolini appetizer!
40th anniversary weekend. Great drinks, food and service. Pretty place. COVID safe protocols in place and observed.
I’ve had dinner and lunch here twice in the last week. Great atmosphere and food. Service is always great. Thank you for the consistency, especially during pandemic.
Service was good. Fish and chips were excellent. The fish sandwich was over breaded and had too much other stuff on it. They would have been better off with more fish and less stuff. They did a good job making our special occasion special.
We had Daniel as our server for my boyfriends 30th birthday. There were six of us and Daniel absolutely made our night! He had every dessert on the menu brought out with a candle for free and was super helpful, knowledgeable, and just overall had amazing serving skills. The food was amazing, especially the bag of doughnuts! We will visit Newport again with the intent to go to The Mooring because of how amazing the service was. 10/10 would recommend!
Excellent service. Decent food. Nice place inside. $9 parking with restaurant validation in the off season was a bit steep, especially when it’s free across the street. They used to have free parking if you ate there but not anymore, so beware of that change.
Food and service were good. The Salmon was tasty. Raw bar is yummy.
A little pricey, but it is Newport. Not much of a selection for kids so I’ll leave them home next time. No manager came to the table - that is always a nice touch.
The food was marginal at best. Not sure what happened as the food used to be great...
Service was great, but the food was not great this time. Overcooked and not well presented. We have been many times and it is usually great. Hopefully this was just an off night.
Excellent food, definitely would like to come back during daylight, wasn’t much of a view in the evening. Overall, wonderful service and an outstanding meal.
Always a great time. They don’t have the Portuguese Cod anymore which was my favorite but the duck was a fantastic substitute.
Emily was great! As was the food and drinks. Memorable bday dinner.
Our server Matt (I think) was very attentive to our needs.
Discount at the parking lot is also a plus
Michelle was the BEST waitress! We went here for a birthday date, and it was such a wonderful experience - delicious, cute atmosphere, beautiful setting, great service. The scallops are amazing.
The service was spectacular! Enjoyed our dinner and experience.
Excellent meal and server and atmosphere
FANTASTIC!!! New Years Eve with my sister and brother-in-law and everything was perfect! It was not crowded. It was decorated for the holidays perfectly! We thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails, oysters, main dishes to dessert! The wait staff was phenomenal, catered to our every need, and was extremely friendly and accommodating. I have eaten here many times in the past and have never had a bad experience! Highly recommend this place to anyone with discerning palates, with a relaxed but well appointed atmosphere.
We had an amazing dinner on New Year’s Eve to celebrate our anniversary. Dinner was delicious! We had scallop chowder, autumn salad, & pork chops. Wine & painkiller drinks were also yummy. All was fabulous! The staff were all wonderful and the atmosphere was great! So glad we chose this place. It was a recommendation from an employee at the inn where we were staying.
Went for our anniversary dinner. Food was great and our server was very friendly.
New Year’s Eve!
Great food, service and view of the water
Favorite Newport Restaurant!
The Mooring is our top pick for food, drinks, service, and ambiance! Never disappointed!
Very warm, cozy ambiance, delicious food and pleasant, attentive service.
Understaffed. Quality and value has gone down significantly than in years past.
I went here with my parent's for my birthday. It has a dressy casual atmosphere. The server was fantastic. She explained things very clearly and without pretension. I had whole lobster which was excellent. The desert menu had a selection of sweet treats, coffees, and spirits. I had a 10 year tawny port which was great. It came out to be $85 per plate, but you reduce that by avoid drinks or choosing cheaper entrees.
It was very nice we had a beautiful seat! Thank you for a wonderful family meal with our three kids 5 and under.
The Mooring is always a good choice for seafood. Lobster rolls, chowder, seafood doughnuts, littlenecks and oysters were all fresh and delicious . Sit by the fireplace if you can this time of year!
Excellent food and service! David was a wonderful server and very attentive! Great menu selection!
Great service, good food, great lobster claws, autumn salad, and pasta dishes. If on a date, ask for a table by the fireplace!
The Moorings never disappoints! The red sangaria was fantastic. Love the lobster doughnuts and the scallop chowder.
Great restaurant. We enjoyed the calamari and bag of donuts. We tried the clam chowder and scallop chowder, both were good but liked the clam chowder a bit more.
We arrived for our reservation on Christmas Eve and were seated right away at a cozy table by the window. Our server was pleasant and very helpful with the menu. Our drinks and apps cane out quickly but not too quickly and they were yummy. My wife ordered the lamb special and I had fish. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My wife especially loved hers, she said she had never had lamb prepared that way (braised) and it was excellent. we can't wait to go back!
