This restaurant was the most pleasant surprise during our visit in Newport, last summer. From the moment you enter the establishment, you are in a different world. The greetings made us feel like home, the food is unbelievable, the service was top notch, but the biggest surprise we had was the check. Dinner for two and a bottle of wine... More

We made a reservation to celebrate an anniversary. From the moment we walked in, the staff was welcoming and professional. A full meal was pricey but completely worth it (and still less expensive than comparable meals in a large city). The stuff lobster and tomato pastry appetizer was made with fresh ingredients and very flavorful. Drink options were plentiful and... More
