Great location. Showed up early for our reservation and they were able to move us up so very accommodating. Location is beautiful and they will validate for their parking lot for up to 3 hours so that was an added bonus. Food was very good and staff was very attentive.
Loved it here - always amazing food. Recommend the bag of doughnuts for sure!!
Great night!!!! Food was amazing and our server Jennifer was exceptional! A must dine at resturant when in Newport!!! Celebrated my daughters 13th birthday! Very nice resturant!!!
Entire experience was top shelf. Service, ambiance, food outstanding
Great drinks, food, service! Went during restaurant week and had a delicious meal after a cocktail in the bar while we were watching the sun set over the water.
absolutely fantastic evening, good food and excellent service. unfortunately our parking was out rageous. $28.00
Relaxed atmosphere, tasty American food, friendly staff and good service.
We have been coming for years and it never fails to amaze me with the consistency of the kitchen. Even though it is very touristy in the summer, the food is as good as it gets for the price. You cannot beat the view. You have to try the 'bag of donuts'. I drive and hour and a half sometimes just to satisfy that taste craving.
my atlantic char was very good. my husband and a friend ordered the petite filet and it was overdone which is why it only received a three star otherwise I would have given it a better rating.
The starters were more abundant than the actual meals. And it was freaking expensive for what it was. I don't understand how these places get away with these prices. The place was nice, great location and good food. But again, we're talking about food, and a meal for two people was +$100. And we didn't even have wine, we had water. Shame on the place, and the overpriced food to the working class population that live in Newport.
The runner brought the wrong dinners to us but they were tasty.
Seating a shade tight on a busy night, however food was excellent!
one of our favorite spots in the newport area...always delicious and great service
Food was very good, service,while good, was a little pushed and rushed.
Energetic and fun place. The server was really fun and engaging. Fish tacos and carpaccio small plates were fantastic!
Paella for 2 was amazing. Excellent service, couldn't ask for more
Wine list as good as it gets.
Appetizer: Bag of Doughnuts, fair. Ours were charred on the outside and a bit tough to eat. Novelty made it worth the experience, but too little seafood inside and too heavy for an appetizer before an excellent meal.
Entrees: Swordfish was the absolute best I’ve ever had. Thick and tender in a way you don’t find. I’d go back just for the swordfish! Ahi was excellent.
Dessert: Peanut butter mousse pie was amazing!
Service was excellent.
I don’t often leave reviews, but in this case i will happily make an exception. We decided to stop at The Mooring on our way home from Boston. The seafood was simply outstanding! My daughter had the fish tacos and said they were the best she’s ever had. My husband had an incredible cod dish with clams and sausage. And there are no words to describe the delicious lobster stuffed with shrimp and scallops that I ordered. I can’t wait to go back to Newport, and our first stop will be a meal at The Mooring!
The food was excellent. The service was very good, but there was a little too much time in between ordering the appetizers and the main course. That delay meant that we were pretty full by the time our main course arrived.
The best clam chowder and oysters. Had a delicious dinner on a rainy cold night.
Consistently a great place to eat year after year. Food quality is great
NYYC Station #6 been coming since I’m five years old. Family tradition.
We had the Paella, excellent seafood,lovely flavor, generous portions. The accompanying sangria was delicious not too sweet, just right! Our server was knowledgeable, insightful and definitely enhanced the experience for our girls night out!!
Had a delicious lunch at the Mooring. Wednesday is a great day to go as their raw bar menu is 50% off!
Great service & great food
Visited while on vacation in Newport. We were recommended to the Mooring by our B&B staff. Very happy with the service as well as the food.
Seafood was amazing! Highly recommend the cold seafood platters. I always go for the lobster. I have had the baked stuffed lobster and steamed. Both were fantastic. Try to get a table by the water before sunset.
Food was great, service wonderful!
Great overall experience....one of our favorite places in Newport!
Wonderful dinner while on a weekend away with the family.
Had a great lunch with fish and chips...and great service!
Good location and service. Food good quality, but uninspiring for dinner. Better lunch spot.
Seafood and Steak entrees were very good. The "bag of doughnuts" was the only item our table did not enjoy. Great espresso martinis too! Our sever was excellent!
The food is delicious and in big portions
We always enjoy the Mooring! It is our to go place in Newport.
Went this past Saturday night for a belated birthday dinner. Everything was amazing. We were smart and made a reservation ahead of time, for which we were seated right on time. While we were waiting (we were a bit early) I did overhear that there was a 3 hour wait for a table for those walking in. The restaurant is large and open with a great, lively atmosphere without being too loud. The staff is very friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately we were still a bit full from lunch, so we didn't eat as much as we normally would have, but everything we did have was perfect. Our server, David (I believe, and so sorry if I am wrong, I have a horrible memory when it comes to names!) was absolutely wonderful. He gave us space at first, but then after a few small interchanges we found some personal connections and from there we had a great, genuine conversation. He was an absolute pleasure to speak with and an excellent server as well. Thank you! We currently live in New Bedford but come to Newport often for weekend trips. We definitely will be back!
Excellent al the way around!!!
The food and service were impeccable and created a lasting memory for us on our first Valentine’s Day. We will be back next year!
Service was quick and wonderful! Food was fresh and local for great price. Highly recommend for family dinners or even just date nights :)
Excellent server. Loved the atmosphere!
