Valentines Day was perfect. We arrived early and was seated right away. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was amazing. Desserts are the best here, our favorite place to send people when visiting.

Just wonderful! I had Scallops Wellington, a very unique dish. With it I had the BEST roasted asparagus I have ever eaten. Drinks were superb and moderately priced for Newport, RI. My husband had fish and chips which he proclaimed excellent. Our server Lisa was a hoot! Knowledgeable, prompt and very accommodating. It was our wedding anniversary/Valentines Day. Quite busy and noisy which didn’t bother us at all. Will definitely return!

We loved the Mooring. The space is beautiful and right on the water, the staff is super helpful, and the menu is extensive but not in an overwhelming way. I had the Uptown Salad which had shrimp, salmon, and lobster tail. It was all amazing. My boyfriend had the Tuna and raved about it. We will definitely be returning and would recommend this place to anyone!

Great service,if you’re early you can enjoy a drink in one of the two bars and the hostess will come pick you up to accompany you to your table. Friendly staff. Good wine list and raw bar selection.

The Mooring was awesome. Took my girlfriend there for a date night this past weekend and only have awesome things to say about this restaurant. The Mooring is rated very highly and is one of the best seafood restaurants I have eaten at really anywhere. We got 3 appetizers, clam chowder, and the crab cake sandwhich and were pretty much blown away by all of what we ate. Throw in a glass of wine and the bill only came out to $84 which is pretty great for a higher end restaurant. Great job

Good, thick and creamy clam chowder. Our server advised us that the bowl of chowder is large and quite filling. I went ahead and got a bowl of chowder and a salad for lunch. Following the advice of our server, several of my friends who ordered sandwiches got cups of chowder rather than bowls, and we all agreed we had had just the right amount of food. My wife thought the salmon sandwich with avocado and bacon (on gluten-free bread at her request—the menu has lots of well-labeled GF options) was delicious. We plan to come back again.

Excellent dining experience. Everything flowed from the time we entered and spoke with the hostess. Very polite, skilled and prompt staff. Food was excellent. Didn’t get a chance to see outside since it was dark. The fireplace was great!

Everything was great. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the large, clean space with energetic, excited diners living life to the fullest. Our server was wonderful and paid extra attention to make sure that a mild eating disability was beautifully accommodated. It was a lovely spot to for a special, intimate big birthday, and and it was Food Network interesting good food. We even tried to the Fig Bread Pudding to be adventurous, and it was great! Charles Dickens would be proud.
