Excellent wine by the glass. Calamari appy great with a light coating and a bit of chili bite. Enjoy the chowder and if you like lamb get the rack.

Had dinner at Saffron Salmon. Food was fantastic. Service was equally as good. It is a small restaurant so be sure to make reservations. So happy we gave it a try. It will be on our list for top stops in Newport.

This is cool, eclectic restaurant right on the Newport bay! Probably 10-12 tables max with updated "retro" style appointments. The wait staff was knowledgeable and very approachable. The food was excellent! I had the halibut on a mix of angle hair pasta, green and yellow...More

It depends. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy with amazing views and a small number of tables in a small room. The staff is very kid friendly; however, this is an upscale linen and cloth napkins restaurant. Your kids... More

Our corkage fee is $15.00 and only ask that the wine you bring in isn't something we already carry. Hope to see you soon.
