Highly recommend this place. I wish we had gone back a second time before leaving Newport. Food was outstanding, the service was excellent, the ambiance just right -- comfortable and classy, but not fussy or stuffy.

This place is great. The service was excellent. Our meals were delicious. Fun atmosphere. I wish they would allow cats to eat with diners. I had to leave my poor cat in the car.

The Marriott is awesome and newly renovated. But the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina is very close to the restaurants and is also nice and affordable.
