“One word: AWESOME :)” – Carol M., private event customer

“Many thanks to you and your team for a wonderful surprise party for my husband! The room looked beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was excellent! I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to tell you in person, but everything was absolutely perfect! You have such attention to detail and were a delight to work with. I would highly recommend your restaurant. In fact one of our guests suggested your restaurant to a friend for a rehearsal dinner. I can’t thank you and your team enough.” – Anne S.

“Every single family member raved about your staff, your food, and your attention to the event, personally. You have given our family a new reason to visit Newport now that Zack has completed school. Thank you so much, you made it so easy for me! On the way to work this morning, my mom called me again to say how perfect everything was, she loved the way you served the calamari and the preparation.” – Lea C., graduation party
