Excellent service. Excellent View. Excellent Nashville Chicken Sandwich.
The Mooring has been our special restaurant for celebrating our anniversary and for other occasions during the year. We always walk out with wonderful memories and look forward to doing so for years to come!
Steak was over done and the lobster tail wasn't edible.
What a wonderful place to go to see friends!
The seafood tower Wednesday is a great buy and super fresh. Our Frog Leap Sauvignon blanc wine was excellent and paired perfectly with our lunch, the seafood tower.
The wait staff was right on. Thank you Mooring for an enjoyable lunch. You are awesome.
Vacation. It was perfect.
It’s was wonderful Anniversary Lunch
The server, host and everyone we came across was fantastic.
Great food and wonderful service !
The Mooring is doing an amazing job and handling the Covid restrictions well. We are always impressed at how quickly and hot the food comes out. And it is delicious. The covered and heated deck (complete with radiant heating from the floor) along with the gorgeous harbor view is a huge plus. Servers are happy and friendly.
Nice way they have closed in the outdoor deck, no wind and warmer in the sunshine.
wonderful service and delicious food! loved the outdoor porch.
Sat outside. Fast seating, ambiance standard. Great RAW bar and wine. Great service!
Dined here during Covid 19 and were very pleased with how the Mooring handled the safety of patrons and staff. From the minute we entered the restaurant they made us aware of the changes and refinements. The tables were separated at least eight feet apart and the staff were all wearing masks. Patrons were asked to put on their masks every time the server arrived at the table. A reasonable request. Service was outstanding. Our server, Denise, was wonderful. As always the meals were delicious. The pork chop was outstanding.
Beautiful setting, sat out on the back patio looking out at the water. Food was great.
Everything was delicious as always
The covid guidelines were closely followed
Staff was awesome!
They are dealing with the pandemic as well as any restaurant we have been to. Quality, service and atmosphere are outstanding!!!
Great gluten free options. Had a GF chicken sandwich (no bread but they did have a GF roll if wanted) with a salad and creme brulee for desert all gluen free. Friend had white chowder said it was great.
We asked for outside dining and got a beautiful table overlooking the harbor. Everything was great
Mini vacation for my husband and I!!!
A very nice place. Server was so personable and attentive.
My husband and I shared a Caesar salad and a salmon BLT. The kitchen split both meals for us. Everything was fresh and very tasty, the service was excellent. Our only complaint is that it seemed to take longer than usual to get our meals.
Great food and drinks! The only negative was they ran out of steak so no surf and turf.
Beautiful birthday dinner was made even more special by attentive staff and wonderful dishes
We have been eating at the moorings for years we were given crab on our appetizer platter instead of lobster claw no comparison and no reduction in price. We were seated on a runway over looking stairs to one side and the kitchen door on the other
Have eaten at the Mooring for decades. Standards have slipped in the kitchen. Pasta dish mediocre, flavors thin and near tasteless, only some heat coming through.
Spinach salad w/ beets with unremarkable dressing, spinach had leaves, many dark, limp too, piled up in the middle with slivered nuts dumped on top, no effort in balance of dressing-to-greens. Beets ok.
Clam chowder tasted of the thickener (flour?) more than the clams.
Red sangria tasty however. Server ok, lackluster.
Effort made to get us in a little earlier than reserved time was good. Fresh air table w/ comfortable safe spacing also good.
Our waitress Sam was AWESOME!!!!!
Food was DELICIOUS!!!
Special day in Newport. Arrived early for our reservations. Asked for outdoor seating. Got table in far corner with limited view.
Food was good.
Service was good.
Will try other place next time.
Wonderful waitress! Was a beautiful day and could not eat outside. Was disappointed. Had a wonderful bowl of chowder. Would skip fish and chips. Too much breading. Drink menu very short and unimaginative. Would recommend the black pearl instead.
Enjoyed a beautiful Saturday afternoon during Newport Restaurant Week at The Mooring. Did not disappoint.
Love it here!!
2-year anniversary dinner
Do you like delicious, fresh seafood? Go here. Great experience overall, very happy with our meal. You wont be sorry, instead, you will be full of delicious, fresh seafood.
Love eating at The Mooring, my favorite restaurant. The service and food is always great.
Outstanding food and service as always. Great staff and management.
Always great at the mooring bar. Mark the bartender was great as well. Made us feel very welcome!
