Wonderful restaurant, we had a water view with sunset, so especially nice. We started with Caesar salad which was great and then had swordfish and scallops. Both were wonderful. Looking forward to returning.
We rediscovered The Mooring this past year and have not been disappointed. The food is amazing, the waitstaff is beyond friendly and knowledgeable. We dined at night but I'm sure the view is amazing as well.
Seafood was fresh and amazing; wonderful staff, gorgeous setting. Top notch all around.
The food and service is always amazing. From the time you enter the restaurant, until the time you depart, the service is always at its best. I am a local Newporter, and the Mooring never dissapoints my expectations. I always suggest the Mooring to family, friends and people who are visiting our beautiful City by the Sea.
As usual.......great service and food.....have celebrated my wife's birthdat at the same table for ten years
We were here for a birthday celebration and the Mooring did a great job. We were seated right at our reservation time even though the restaurant was extremely busy for St Patricks Day. The service was quick and our orders arrived quickly and as ordered.
The food was well prepared and tasty and we had a wonderful time. Cannot wait to go back for our next visit!
Another great meal and fabulous waitress! Love this restaurant.
A known winner. The Mooring always delivers!!! I always dine there when I’m in Newport.
Our dinner was delicious. We had the seafood donuts as an appetizer, and i could have made them my meal. I like that the menu had unique choices as well as some more traditional, so it made the dining experience that much more enjoyable.
Wife and me did 4 day trip from NYC
This place was the worst from all the places we ate
Seafood was fresh but that's all. Everything else not good, no taste , too salty overall just ok but high prices
Highly recommend, went to Newport for girls weekend away .
We went on a Friday.
Great place, Mary our server was very friendly ..& great food.
I had a great view of the harbor and the waitress was very friendly and lively. The whole atmosphere is very elegant and cozy. The food is absolutely delicious, I can't wait to bring my family here!
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.
Super romantic absolutely gorgeous... Can’t wait to go back in the summer
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.
