The venue was beautiful. Although we were a large party, there were no other guests so it seemed like we had the entire room to ourselves. The food was delicious but I'm giving 4 stars and not five for two reasons: a few of the guests ordered an entrée which was supposed to be on brioche but it was on... More

We started out in the bar - actually were the only ones there when we arrived - and were delighted with a very competent and friendly bartender. Her signature cocktails started our evening off just right. When time came for our dinner, one of the waiters from the dining room came into the bar and escorted us to our table.... More

We have been going to Newport for years and just discovered the Newport Grille, as it had an offering for Restaurant Week.

The hotel is lovely. The dining area is very cozy. Had a drink at the bar before dinner which was very enjoyable. The bartender was very engaging. In fact, the service and staff as a whole are great here. My husband ordered off of the prix fixe menu. He had a mushroom appetizer that was small but delicious. The filet... More

We were staying in Newport and had not planned ahead for dinner. We happened upon this place using an online reservations app. and it was the only one that was nearby, available, and had decent ratings. There is a decided lack of urgency here -- from our phone call about reservations to our seating in the practically empty restaurant, to... More

We went to The Conservatory at Vanderbilt Grace for dinner with some friends after some shopping and drinks at the rooftop. We sat out in the beautiful garden and had a delightful time watching the sun go down. The Berry & Spinach salads, Flounders, Blueberry Tart and Shortcake were all excellent.

The Conservatory is a lovely spot to start the day. I ordered Eggs Florentine (I always order what I can't make ;) and dollar pancakes. I took my time and wasn't rushed. They also have a good tea selection.

The Vanderbilt Grace Hotel is a little of the main tourist areas. It is in the most historic section of Newport (Washington Square.) The Conservatory is the more casual restaurant in the hotel (the Muse being the more formal,) but since boating is such big draw to Newport, casual and formal have different meanings -- we went in T shirts...
