Found this on trip advisor since we are not locals. From the minute we entered until the final drink of the night the staff were all exceptional. Cody, our server, helped us decide on lobster bisque and crab fried rice to go with our yummy rib eye (huge) steak. Best selection of wine, ask for a taste before you decide,... More

The service was impeccable. We were greeted by very charming and welcoming staff and our waiter was attentive. The menu provided a very interesting and wide selection of appetizers and main courses with very American cuisine. Good selection of fish and beef choices. Everything was a la carte so one had to mix and match. By my standards this is... More

This is an awesome restaurant. The food is amazing. I ordered the Sea bass and it was out of this world. The restaurant is on pricey side but the food is worth it.

Normally this is the type of place I stay away from, I prefer local eats. I was hesitant because it has other locations which is usually a turn off for me. Boy am I glad I decided to give it a try, it was exceptional! From the great cocktails to the entrée it was superb. I had the swordfish and... More

I'm from Las Vegas and my wife and I were visiting our daughter in Newport. I arranged for reservations for three on my wife's birthday, not knowing this restaurant except through the web page. It was a big hit with all of us. There was a convivial vibe in the restaurant and bar, the service was precise, friendly, transparent, knowledgeable... More

Over the last week we have been to some of the nicest, trendiest restaurants in Newport. The food here was amazing. The decor needs to change though as it doesn't match the food in the slightest. If I only could go to one restaurant if I came back to Newport it would be this one.

We truly enjoyed our family dinner at this restaurant. All dishes ordered were of excellent quality and served professionally with attention to details by our server, Ky Madden. Our grand-daughter had special veggie requests which were followed correctly making the evening that more pleasant. The Steak, Scallop and Fish dishes were of highest quality. A truly first class restaurant.

One of our local "go to" places. A great variety of choices on the menu. The service is always first rate even on a busy night. Good ambiance and noise level is moderate

I was there for business dinner. There were 5 of us and we ordered a lot of food. Everything was excellent and the service was great as well. The truffle Mac and cheese is unbelievable- I highly recommend this if you like truffle. The lobster bisque was good but my least favorite. Great at first but is very rich and... More

My husband wanted to celebrated Valentine's Day early, so he picked Wildfish. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Wildfish. Make sure you get there early, it gets crowded after 5. Heather was the perfect waitress, she was very attentive and she informed us of popular items and she also made her personal recommendations. We enjoyed everything we tasted. We enjoyed... More
