“Great Indoor/Outdoor Seating”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

22B has great seating both in the main restaurants and in a separate dockside area. Both locations have nice bars and share a good menu. Everything is a bit overpriced, but that's everything in Newport. I had the Chicken - Portobello Sandwich. They serve a couple tasty local beers - I had the IPA.

“Top Wharf Restaurant”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This restaurant is more upscale than The Mooring but with equally good food. Great martinis too. Good choices of seafood and nice service.

“Delicious specials”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We ate here off-season and were lucky enough to have the option of a prix-fixed menu. Having been told 22 Bowen's was noted for it's steaks we opted for beef... the carpaccio was delicious. We had flat-iron steaks for our entree which were tasty and tender. The chocolate dessert was decadent. We had a table by the window which allowed for people watching; a nice diversion.

“Very nice but pricey”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped at the outdoor bar for a snack and cocktail. We had the tuna tartare and beef carparchio. The tuna was excellent. While nicely presented I thought the carparchio was skimpy. But the bartender was friendly and the day was beautiful.

“Good food, great views”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were in Newport celebrating our anniversary. The Inn where we were staying recommended the 22B to us and kindly made reservations for us. We arrived earlier than our reservation time, but we were quickly seated in a great location, overlooking the wharf where we watched the boats come in. My husband ordered the swordfish which was nicely cooked. I ordered the filet mignon, but was not given a steak knife so I used a butter knife, which thankfully the steak was tender enough so it did the trick. The only downside to our visit was the service. The waitress disappeared and did not return to check on us to make sure everything was ok or if we needed something else. She did show up to ask about dessert, but again dissappeared. By the time another waitress approached us about dessert, we were no longer interested. Overall, the atmosphere was good as was the food. Despite the service, I would recommend this.
