Another New Year's Eve dinner (our fourth) at the Spiced Pear is marked by exceptional food and service! Chef Tom's food was artistic and flavorful, and Cole makes every dining experience special. The whole staff was accommodating, friendly and inviting. Thank you all for an incredible evening! We cannot wait to go back!!!

The Spiced Pear is a classic, elegant, and very upscale restaurant in an equally classic, elegant, and very upscale hotel in Newport, RI. The ambiance and service are impeccable. The waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and responds to the diners' needs before anyone has to say anything. The food, served in carefully controlled portions, is presented beautifully, and is quite good. However, one steak that was ordered medium-rare came out rather well-done. Profuse apologies were offered personally by the manager as was a corrected serving, desserts, and an adjustment to the final bill. Because the kitchen is open to the dining room, we noticed that those preparing the food were not wearing gloves; we are not sure what are the local and state regulations in that regard. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

The duck was quite good. The monkfish was average at best. The service was acceptable. Our request that the brussel sprouts be left out and substituted with another vegetable was not carried out.
