Outstanding! The staff was professional, our waiter was lovely and informative, spot on in describing what to expect from the dishes. Charming and elegant atmosphere. The food was amazing! I had the Cuban Ruben and carrot bisque soup, my boyfriend had the lobster sandwich...he thought the lobster could have been chunkier but otherwise delicious. Quickly made it on the list to one of our favorite Newport Restaurants! More

Lovely dining room. We were nearly the only diners on a Tuesday evening, off-season. Great value with buy one/get one entree (otherwise a bit high priced). Food (grilled swordfish) was cooked exactly as i asked. Delicious (although a little over-cooked for my partner, probably due to my request). Onion soup was good. Service was excellent. As a "local," will dine here again. Surprising quality for hotel restaurant. More

As a "local," we often avoid hotel restaurants. I stand corrected (at least off-season). Excellent meal - home-made Italian Wedding Soup, delicious fried clam appetizer, Lobster Boil Clambake. Chef came to table to explain he only had 1/2 order of clams (fresh clam order did not come in); very thoughtful and always nice to meet Chef. Very slow night in the restaurant - being "spruced up" while we were there but not intrusive. Service was excellent. Thank you. We'll be back! More

We’re an eclectic blend of Newport vibes — from the historic bank vault behind our marble bar to the Bellevue Ave-inspired details in our lounge. Our cocktails bring you back to the Newport of decades ago. We’re proud to serve quality, locally sourced victuals (it rhymes with ‘skittles’) — all in an immersive dining experience.More
