My husband and I were celebrating my birthday in Newport and are staying at the Marriott . We had originally had a reservation at The Mooring, but after seeing the beautiful decor and menu decided to cancel and go to the Skiff. We were very happy we did! Our experience from start to finish was excellent. The hostess could not do enough to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Our waiter was genuinely happy to serve us and offered many recommendations and the bartender makes an amazing martini. They should be very proud of their staff and the food was plentiful and delicious.

Great experience from start to finish. Very attentive service and tasty food. My Fish was perfectly cooked and my girls got generous portions of a Butternut squash risotto and fish and chips. My youngest loved the Buffalo chicken soup starter. The only Knick was that they were out of the dessert I wanted.

The Marriott needs to work on their heat lamps in the Skiff Bar because they don’t always work.

Other than that, the atmosphere is good with a wonderful view and it’s great for outdoor seating. I had fish and chips which were delicious and a wonderful cocktail!

The highlight of dining at the Skiff Bar is being served by IKEA (i’m sorry; I know this is the wrong spelling of her name.)

She is a true professional in every sense of the word. She’s knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and one of the reasons friends and I choose to have dinner there.

Visit the Skiff Bar and hopefully you will have IKEA as your server. You’ll leave after having a nice meal, a wonderful experience and and having made a good friend!

We had an early breakfast due to the planned departure time of our touring group, but it worked out perfectly. We received vouchers for breakfast from the Marriott due to the lounge being closed, but would have opted to dine at Skiff anyway. The decor and atmosphere were pleasing and we received excellent service from our server, Holly.

Good quiet place for breakfast with a view of the harbor. Ate here three days and our servers, Jackie and Marie were excellent.
The breakfast menu has something for everyone including corned beef hash, omelets and the New England Plate which was my favorite.....scrambled eggs with many delicious pieces of lobster, served over Canadian bacon topped english muffins topped with hollandaise sauce, don't miss it!

We returned here mostly for the great Clam Chowder. It's among the best we've had and this time we tried the Fish Tacos appetizer which was fantastic too! Service was friendly and prompt. It's not inexpensive, but for Newport, RI, it's probably mid-price range. We had another enjoyable visit and plan to return soon.

The gentleman that was at the Host desk was EXTREMLY rude. I'm not sure if he was in charge but if that's the way he treats a customer with a reservation I would question the way he may be treating his staff.
