It is not too cold outside. Lots of heaters. But a little echo=y if you have hearing issues.
Server, Johnny was awesome!! Food fabulous as usual
Dined here with my boyfriend for my birthday. Fantastic experience! Beautiful views and ambiance. The service was amazing and the food was delicious! Best surf and turf I’ve ever had
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Thank you.
The Mooring always delivers a delightful experience and is a must visit while in Newport. I love trying new restaurants but always make sure I go to the Mooring to ensure I at least have on fabulous dining experience in the trip. The Mix Grill salad was so refreshing and has a generous serving of salmon shrimp and lobster.
This was a great lunch. The staff is commended for their efforts during this time.
Food was great and the service was fantastic. Granted we went there on a Monday night and it was quiet, but our server really helped us have a great time.
Wonderful location with convenient parking and a spectacular view paired with excellent cuisine and service! We’ll be back!
We love the measures they take for gluten free customers. The hot GF rolls are INCREDIBLE! The GF salmon sandwich is also amazing! Thank you for allowing those with food allergies to feel normalcy.
I’ve been to the Mooring several times. Love the atmosphere, the staff is amazing as well as the food. This time however I was a bit disappointed in the lobster roll. For what you pay there was more of the roll then the lobster meat.
It was good, but wished there was more for it for the price.
Delicious seafood and great service! I would go back there again!
Top notch service and good !
Service was excellent but the meals were not great. Salmon tasted fishy and not a wide menu selection
We always have the best meals here. Food is well worth the value.
Love the food. Service is always great.
Outstanding atmosphere, service and food! They had excellent COVID safety precautions as well. I was comfortable dining and we had a wonderful time. We highly recommend the Mooring!
Great location. Great restaurant. Great food
The spicy linguini with scallops and shrimp was outstanding.
I can always count on great service, food and atmosphere at the Moorings!!! Thank you.
Great atmosphere and the food is always outstanding!
We were the last reservation of the night. The host made it sound like we were an imposition but our waiter was wonderful and very attentive. We had a shrimp special, lobster role, grilled salmon and a Caesar salad. Everything was great. A highlight was super crispy fries with the maple chipoltle aioli.
Staff is always great and the social distancing is spot on. My friends and I don’t go out too much at this time for obvious reasons but if we do we have been going to the mooring
Great evening And Sunset
Food and service was awesome
I ordered the Spicy Seafood Pasta with Lobster Tail... Absolutely Delicious. Expresso Martini's were great and our waitress and service, outstanding. Will definitely go back for sure.
The Mooring always provides a terrific and beautiful experience. Food and service are always exceptional for us. Try this place!
Great restaurant--I'm a Newport native--always great food, service, and ambience!
I’ve had many great meals and experiences at the Mooring, but the quality of food has become mediocre this past year. We had slow and borderline abandoned service the last time. Combined with the lack luster meal, I am not sure the mooring will stay on my top 5 list in Newport
Quick mid afternoon apps and drinks with friends before heading to castle hill for their s’mores by the fire event that evening. We have all 5 of the appetizers and the sangria and it was all delicious!
Warmly greeted by Jim and then personally escorted to our table. The Mooring is very conscientious regarding Covid and their measures make me feel extremely safe and allow me to enjoy a lovely meal.
We loved the atmosphere at the Mooring and the food was fabulous. The raw bar was delicious and my filet entree was done to perfection and as tender as could be. Can’t wait to go back.
Good place to have lunch in Newport in off season. Food is good but validated parking ticket is only good for one hour. We stayed 1 1/4 hour and the parking charge was 8 dollars.
Its a tourist trap, we went for my daughters birthday for a special event but were disapointed with our waiter Alvaro. Although we were his only table he was nowhere to be found. Noone brought any plates for the appetizer and he spilled a drink on the table but never wiped it up. Yes its expensive but no the food is not better than the numerous other options. My lobster roll was not fresh, tasteless, left disapointed. The waterside has plastic windows blocking any water views.
Awesome food great service recommend the spicy shrimp and scallop pasta
Was absolutely blown away by the array of menu items, the value of the food and how amazing it was, and just how good the mocktails were!!! So fantastic, fantastic birthday dinner. My fiancé and I felt safe, as a gay couple, in the environment and were treated so well by our server Lexi!!! She was memorable and had such a fabulous mask (WONDERFUL that she was wearing it right!) we were also spaced far from others, so so pleased at the set up. Thank you!!! Will be back sometime to have more chicken pecatta!
Great experience! The service was super nice and accommodating. We went for our anniversary and they greeted us with a warm welcome. The food was amazing, we got the bag-of-donuts and spicy linguini. Definitely recommend!!!
Very disappointed . The food was so overly salted - could not eat. Risotto was so over cooked - mushy.
Shame on me for returning
It was my wife’s 50 th birthday and they sat us right In front of the fireplace on a chilly night. The oysters were incredible as was our entrees
Our servers were friendly , engaging and were instrumental in making my wife’s
Birthday a success
