The Mooring Restaurant
On Wednesday, march 3rd we went the Mooring for their seafood tower on 1/2 price Wednesdays. I was superb. We sat out on the enclosed deck which gave a beautiful view of waterway into the marina. What a wonderful afternoon. The food was wonderful and service was great! We love the Mooring in the heart of downtown Newport.
Everything was great in terms of food, ambiance and service. However, We still have to pay for parking for the 2 hrs we were there even after getting parking ticket validated.
our server Rachel was pleasant food was great drink was weak
The Mooring is always great! I highly recommend it. Not inexpensive but always good!
Superb spinach salad, scallops entree and salmon burger! Masculine nautical decor with plenty of tables situated close to the water for a harbor view.
This place never disappoints. We both had the scallops entree. Delicious!!!!
Lisa was an amazing server and full of information and suggestions for the Newport area.
Fantastic lunch ... beautiful view !
We had a table close to the window. Too cold, heater wasn’t on. Not too many choices in the menu.
Excellent food and service . Warm and comfortable on a cold night . Highly recommend!
It was our first time out to dinner since the pandemic. We felt very safe. The food was excellent and so was the service!
Get the Portuguese Cod! You won't regret it! We went for a romantic dinner, sat by the fireplace and had a wonderful time. Good service, good wine and great food!
It was our first time dining at The Mooring. Was not disappointed at all. The food was delicious. The service was great and the food arrived promptly. Highly recommend you give it a try. We’ll be back for sure!
This is a very good restaurant and we always have an excellent meal.
Thank you for all your patronage and we are glad you enjoyed.
Everything was just awesome.
That makes us happy! Glad you enjoyed.
Our young waiter was more interested in serving his buddies then serving us
Thank you for the feedback. We will discuss with our team. We pride ourselves in exceptional service and never like to hear had a less than excellent service experience.
We had a lovely time sitting in the enclosed deck. Looking out into the water. This will be my new lunch place during the winter
We will be back this weekend
We are glad you enjoyed and looking forward to seeing you again for lunch soon.
We had an amazing waiter!!
He was just the best!!!
Our table was perfect and service was excellent.
Great value for the venue
Our waitress was very attentive and our meal was outstanding!
That's great to hear. Thanks!
The waiter was nice & very efficient. The table was in the porch area and it didn’t have much ambiance , compared to the interior of the restaurant. I thought it was too bright and sterile! Food was okay. I have been to other Newport Restaurant Group restaurants and liked them better!
Thank you for your feedback. We always like to hear what our guests are saying. Our porch area is a bit sparse right now to accommodate COVID spacing, but we hope you visit us again in the summer when it opens up to the harbor. It has a whole different feel.
Super comforting experience. Special seating by the fireplace and the attentive staff make our anniversary dinner the finest experience
Went for our anniversary
Thanks for celebrating with us!
First time there .. excellent service and dinning room!!
We went on the earlier side with two toddlers. The waitress automatically knew how to get them settled. The food was amazing. Kids loved the clam chowder and lobster/shrimp fritters. The entrees were superb too! This is our second time and would highly recommend anyone visiting Newport!
Thank you! We're glad your family enjoyed and appreciate the recommendation. We hope we see you again soon.
Enjoyed the warm ambiance on a snowy evening. Food and service was commendable.
We are very happy you enjoyed!
Great experience even under COVID. Food was fantastic and half price raw bar didn't hurt either
Thank you Tim! We are very happy you enjoyed.
Super lunch served. Every one was super friendly!
Thank you! We appreciate the 5-star rating!
Great food and atmosphere. Staff were friendly, food came out quick.
Thank you Dale. Glad you enjoyed.
Everything was great except the ambiance. We were seated in the “outdoor” area which has no ambiance. I get that it is COVID but restaurants are going to have to figure that out or charge less for eating in such spaces.
Thank you for the feedback. We wish our ambiance was more inviting for you.
A fine place, more expensive than I feel necessary. Upcharge for view I'm sure. Shrimp not cleaned and cocktail more ice than anything else.
Thank you for the feedback. We strive to be the best at what we do and we always value the insight from our guests..
Great place food was amazing service spot on and timing was everything. No wait and pleasant staff
Thank you for joining us! We appreciate the five-star rating.
We were seated immediately upon arrival. Service was quick and food delicious.
Thank you Tootie! Glad you all enjoyed.
Always great with a harbor view. Just GO!
That's good advice for us! Thank you and glad you enjoyed.
We enjoy the Mooring for is consistent quality. For a fish restaurant, they make an awesome fillet mignon as my husband likes it, I wish they would add some pasta dishes.
Thank you Mariceann! We are glad you enjoy it here. We will share your suggestions with our culinary team.
Service was very attentive. Oysters were awesome. Slightly disappointed with Lobster Roll - reasonable lobster portion not generous. Salmon BLT was great. Atmosphere was good despite crappy weather and limited capacity
Thank you Joseph. we really appreciate your patronage and for sharing your feedback. We hope you come back and join us again.
we sat out on the deck, on lawn chairs -- not exactly what I had pictured for such a nice restaurant that required a credit card hold for a reservation.
our meals were ehh... his stuffed lobster was amazing, my filet was very overcooked and the shrimp addon had no flavor.
mixed feelings about the experience.

Love the atmosphere. Welcoming, professional, kind and attentive staff.
Food and drinks were fabulous.
Thank you! We are glad your experience was 5-stars! Hope you will join us again soon.
Food was just ehh. It was very overpriced. The worst Bloody Mary I ever had!
Sorry to hear that John. That's not typical of our quality. We will be sure to take your feedback to heart. We strive to deliver an exceptional dining experience and we never like to know we didn't deliver.
The Bag of Donuts appetizer is never a disappointment! My husband ordered the spicy seafood pasta dish (I tasted it and it was great!). My fish and chips was a bit of a disappointment...too much batter on the fish...overall the food came quickly and was well prepared. Despite the winter weather, the view was still fantastic from the enclosure.
Thank you for joining us and for the feedback. We are glad the Bag of Doughnuts and the Seafood Pasta made a good impression. Sorry your fish and chips were not too your liking. They are usually one of our favorite items. We will share your feedback with the culinary team as we are always looking to be better at what we do. We hope your next visit is more to your liking.
