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 zucchini with butter-wine sauce. The portion of fish was more than filling. My wife had the what I'd call a "sampler". Crab and shrimp cake, wild salmon and side greens all delicately prepared. Dessert was a light lemon bar with pie crust and raspberries.

Perfection! Right on the water, great service, casual but very pretty dining room, absolutely delicious food. Wow! They have a nice range of meal prices, too, from full-on entrees to just salads with added fresh fish or chicken.

This is an off the beaten path one room small dining room with gourmet food. Ate there twice and found the tuna prepared perfectly. Everyone in our party raved about their dinner. The ladies running this place have a shipshape operation.
One Caveat: it is a single room with lots of glass overlooking the beautiful harbor and because of the glass, the noise level with a full room can be quite loud. Also, do not try to walk in here during summer season. You will need a reservation.

My daughter and I came here for dinner on our recent visit to Newport. What a lovely restaurant, right on the pier. I love seafood, and the salmon was delicious. My daughter doesn't care for seafood, and they offered to make her a pasta dish with chicken which wasn't even on the menu. We had the cobbler for dessert and it was delightful. This is a small, intimate restaurant and would be perfect for couples for an anniversary dinner.
