We have been there many times. But last time we both got sick. Food wasn’t good. For the price you are paying quality should be top. I don’t think we’ll go there again

Got the steak and frites but the steak tasted a little chewy. Service was good except our waitress wasn't the most profesh/polished/experienced. Overall, solid vibe, great wine, and nice ambiance. Good date night.

The food was great - the service; however, could have been better. We asked 4 times to have our space heater turned on and watched as every one around us was taken care of. I finally had to get up and ask the hostess in order to have this done. Food was good - service was spotty.

The location and scenery were great, but our service was bad and took a while. They kept switching waiters back and forth between two guys so we weren’t sure what was going on. This caused a mix up in our order. The food was way over priced for what it was. Our flatbread didn’t seem homemade and was undercooked. The meat and cheese board we got was very small for the amount. Only one cheese (2 sticks that string cheese is bigger) and some salami.

The girls that sat us was rude and told us to eat in 1 and a 1/2 hours because they need the table for the next person and the server came 29 minutes after we were sited because I told them to please serve us….
I told to the girl that sat us at the table and she forgot where we were sitting.she forgot !

Server was great, food came out quickly, beautiful view of the water/marina. However, both the burger and steak were cooked well-done though we ordered medium. Also, the steak was very chewy/not tender. Everything else was great - mushroom flatbread, burrata/prosciutto, & burger even though it was overcooked.

Our server was great, just don't think there was enough servers overall. It took about 10 minutes to even get him to come to us after being seated.
Food is decent, not particularly amazing, but overall good.
Great ambiance and fun area.

If they transplanted the McDonalds crew, they would have a more conscientious, polite, cleaner looking group of employees. The entire staff was absolutely bottom-of-the-barrel. Impossible to find a waiter. The hostess is rude and trashy. The waitstaff has zero etiquette in proper serving. This place is a tourist trap for those that don't know there is better in Newport. I don't see knowledgeable people who live in Newport putting up with thia place.

Good date spot because of the fact it’s on the water. but that’s where the positives end. food, service, and value are all sub-par.

The service was poor. The server forgot we ordered a beer. The drinks took for ever to get to the table. We ordered a cheese platter with extra bread. Forgot the extra bread. We finished the cheese before the extra bread arrived. The music was nice and the view of the bay was beautiful. Fun people watching. My meal was not cooked all the way through. It was not heated in the middle. Sorry we will not be back
