The Mooring Restaurant
A favorite of ours for many years. Great food, beautiful location and great service.
We had great time.
It was are first time to Newport, be back again soon..
Brought family here from Phoenix. They loved it.
Excellent sevice. Fresh delicious food.
We were on the porch…. Can be a bit sunny but offers delightful view.
Our meal was fantastic. Seafood soooo fresh and delicious.
We have selected to dine at that Mooring many times over the years. Whether lunch or dinner, the food and service are top notch. Great raw bar.
Great dining! Excellent service! Worth every penny!
The food and service by Ben was amazing! One of our Newport favs.
Your wait person, (I believe his name is Matt) on Sunday, 8/1@6:30 dinner reservation, was professional, patient, accommodating, and kind. However, my out of state guest was not and I am embarrassed for her behavior. My guests were, at times, loud and somewhat "energetic". I so appreciate your staff, especially our server.
Hopefully, I am still welcome!
Thank you again, and from my perspective, the service, food and ambience is second only to other Newport Restaurant group restaurants!
Our experience was tasty and delightful and though the environment was bustling all around us -our meal was relaxed and peaceful.
Our servers were wonderful and I was also appreciative of the warmth and hospitality of other employee/owners who so pleasantly thanked us and wished us well as we left.
Great views and excellent food
We all really enjoyed lunch at the Mooring. Smart, casual atmosphere with nice view of the harbor prepared us for delicious food and attentive service. Highly recommend the “donut” appetizer!
Love this restaurant - has a great deck outside overlooking the marina. The food was perfect accompanied by a cool and breezy martini.
Made a reservation for two about 4 weeks ahead since Jazz festival going on. Immediately seated when arrived. Service was fantastic. Our server was very personable. Very attentive and outgoing. Food menu limited but quality excellent. "Bag of donuts" which were lobster fritters was so good. My wife and I both had fish dinners. Very fresh and cooked just right. Will try to get there again on our next visit.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful location. Parking was easy.
Can’t go wrong with this
Restaurant!!! It continues to have some of the tastiest food and drinks around. The food is always so delicious!!! . As an added bonus this setting, the beautiful Newport location on the water, is terrific, and the phenomenal kind and wonder staff!!! It really is a great place!
Start to finish, a wonderful experience.
Food was delicious! Fresh, local, seasonal ingredients were used. We sat outside with beautiful views of the marina. Service was wonderful
Great food as always - we love all of the Newport Restaurant Group establishments! Our server was so friendly and service was great despite the national shortage.
We sat outside - can't beat that beautiful view - went for raw bar, lunch and cocktails, and everything was perfect! Can't recommend The Moorings (have to get the Bag of Doughnuts!) and the other NRG locations enough.
We arrived in Newport 30 minutes before our lunch reservation. We asked if we could be seated and the manager was very accommodating. Our table was located in the back where you can see the marina, it was picturesque!
Our server, Kiara, was excellent. She was attentive, informative, knowledgeable. Service with a smile.
The Mexican craft cocktail was delicious, if you enjoy a little kick with the spicy chili salt, cheers! The grilled shrimp Caribbean tacos were also yummy. It comes with mango salsa, Cole slaw and coconut rice on the side. Great value for Newport
Six of us for a birthday lunch. Food was excellent, as was the service and the atmosphere! I look forward to going back again.
Kids menu and the quality was amazing and I loved the Mix salad with grilled salmon, shrimp and a lobster tail!
Beautiful view & great food! Lot's of options for food sensitivities as well
Great cocktails and amazing service. Would definitely go back
We were greeted warmly and seated promptly in a comfortable booth. Service was outstanding, and the food was great! Particularly enjoyed the scallop chowder. The lobster drew raves, and the classic fish and chips were just as they should be. Recommend highly, hope to return.
Food was great, lobster was very sweet. Mashed potatoes were perfect. Draft beer was terrific. Waitress was very effecicient, personable and attentive’
Very accommodating with food allergies. Great views! Very good food.
Best Menue....Complete with many choices, as both lunch and dinner selections
Excellent service & greeting, seated at preferred table upon arrival.
Food service was prompt and professional.
Ambiance is "second to none" in Newport.
Would have liked a little more selection of "wine by the glass"
I went to The Mooring as a party of five for a business lunch. The table was ready on time and we found the service to be especially accommodating. Four of the five of us ordered a salad with either chicken or seafood added. Our fifth member ordered soup. I asked that my tuna be well done, and it was. Someone else asked for medium rare salmon and it was. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. (I definitely enjoyed my Caesar with Tuna.) What especially impressed me was the value. A few days earlier I had joined a large party for lunch at another restaurant. The cost was the same, but the quality of the food couldn't compare to The Mooring.
Great food and service. Very crowded and make reservations in advance .
The Service was excellent and the food was Delicious! I would definitely go there again next time I am in Newport.
The clam showder was discussing, lobster the butter garlic was not good, potatoes had no taste
Food and service were both very good. Only downside was sitting on the deck in the late afternoon. Sun was brutal. Everyone was sliding there tables away from the lowering sun like vampires. Wish they could extend awning to block the sun a bit longer. I will go back because I do like the place, just won't be sitting on the deck. We went and had desert at the bar. Was very good & cool !!!!
The Mooring was recommended to us by family friends. The view was spectacular, the food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent! We will definitely be back!
I always recommend The Mooring to our out of town guests because they never disappoint! We love it there also. We sat on the patio for lunch. Try the Scallop Chowder. Everything was delicious!
We always come here for lunch whenever we visited New Port, RI. The foods are so good that we’re still craving for more next time when we come back again. All the dishes are so delicious good especially the raw bar (oysters & little neck) very fresh & sweet. The fish & chip plate is so moist and heaven, no one can beat it! Very good clam chowder here too! The seafood pasta is also good too!
Friendly service, great atmosphere and tasty options.
The calamari was like rubber. Way over cooked! The lobster was over cooked. A good lobster doesn’t stick to the shell. I couldn’t even crack the shell and I’m a fit guy! To pay the money we did for such a poor meal was absurd! I’ve been here before and it just seems like it went down hill. The service was great! I know she can’t help what comes out that kitchen.
