Business dinner. Reservations are a must in season. Food and wine was excellent and the service was present, constant but not intrusive. Tables a bit to close together so if you can get a perimeter table this is much better. Will return.

I'm sure they will have a Mother's Day brunch. Best to reserve now as that time of year things are very busy in Newport RI.

Yes, I would imagine so. There are two levels for dining. Do make sure to make reservations though.
