A wonderful restaurant for a romantic night out! Absolutely delicious food & excellent presentation (my wife & I are both chefs, so we're not easily impressed). The entertainment was perfect. Huge variety of songs, done well, and at a level what still left it easy to converse even sitting right next to him. He was personable and a lot of fun. (We're actually planning to hire him for an upcoming party). The waiter was a great guy who bent over backward to make it a great experience. In fact, everyone in the place was, from the hostess (super nice), and the bar tender'ess (lotsa fun & really sweet), to everyone else that helped us throughout the night. Just go there. Pricing is about the same as most Newport waterfront places, but the experience is much better.

Heirloom tomato salad, which was touted by the waiter when I asked if the tomatoes might be out of season and better ordered during the Summer months, was disappointing. The mahi mahi (me) and the cauliflower steak (wife) entrees were good. Fish seemed very fresh. Expected to find a more upscale crowd, particularly given the premium location on the water in NB, as we hadn't been to The Winery in about 3 years.

The service from the bartenders to the wait service was amazing! We went for Thanksgiving dinner and I know restaurants can be quite hurried that day however this was not the case at all here. Treated our party of 10 with kindness. The food was delicious as well! I highly recommend The Winery for any type of occasion!

This is our 3rd time here at The Winery for brunch. We invited 2 additional guest and hoped that the food and service would not disappoint. Well, the dishes, service, and view
were excellent! Could not be happier as our guests were quite impressed. All of our dishes were properly prepared and tasted fantastic.

Music from the bar was so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak. Waiter was nice and said he would have them turn it down, which didn’t happen. Fortunately the manager checked on us and agreed it was way too loud and proceeded to ask the musician turn it down. What made it worse was the fact that this musician was awful to listen to.

Flat iron steak was ordered medium but brought out super well done. Nothing was said to waiter as I don’t send food back.

Overall, staff was very nice and hospitable, table location overlooking bay was perfect and the birthday desert given was a nice treat.

This was my 4th visit to this location and only the first time I had issue with loud music and over cooked steak

Definitely will return

There was live music and it was not too crowded. Just enough to be lively. Wine selection was vast and fantastic. Service was also incredible. Troy was a great server, attentive and knowledgeable without hovering. We were there for our anniversary and we were congratulated which is a simple nice acknowledgement. The manager I believe his name was Mike also came to the table a couple times to make sure everything was to our liking. Always a move touch. We will be back.
