“"hidden" Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

A very unique menu, with bold and carefully thought out pairings. Make sure to stop at the bar for a "one of a kind" cocktail and ask for Derek!

“Nice but not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Very friendly cool waitress - chili was good but not hot enough - mains of ravioli and pad Thai were good but portion sizes are huge! Good value. Quiet when we went would recommend but nicer views and seafood elsewhere like the moorings or Bowen 22

“A Solid Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A funky, late night spot that we hit up for dinner and drinks. I'm amiss to all the dishes we ordered but what I do recall was lobster & pasta, mussels, and a fish dish (?). Either way we enjoyed everything and the drinks.

“Terrific Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B host and really enjoyed it. It is outside the tourist area (but walking distance) and has a fun ambience with really good food. We will go again the next time we stay in Newport.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I went to school nearby, and came here many times on Saturday nights with friends. The design is eclectic - and it works. There was a stuffed chicken on a fleur de lis lampshade on one of my visits, and somehow the whole place still looked put together. The service is great, friendly waitstaff, an they are quick even when it gets busy. Some servers seem to have an attitude when they see groups of young people because they assume they won't be tipped well, but that never happened here. I recommend either the caesar salad - it is made with kale, but shredded very fine so it isn't too chewy, and instead of croutons there are crunchy breadcrumbs - or the pad thai - the portion size is massive and it is worth every penny. Definitely a little pricy but worth it, and you have leftovers. Dessert may be better than dinner, especially the chocolate banana pockets that melt in your mouth.
