Small cozy family run business - specialize in crab cioppino and it is amazing. They also have a variety of other fish specialties - all very good. We visit this restaurant everytime we are in Newport - highly recommended

Every time we go to Newport, this is our go-to restaurant. Their seafood is always fresh, very friendly service and their marinara seafood linguini is amazing. My husband loves their Ciopinno and I also love their seafood curry. I highly recommend this restaurant, you would not be disappointed.

Someone recommend this place to us, it is a really small little place with not a whole lot of seating, but it was extremely delicious and the service was great! I got the cioppino after seeing a bunch of them ordered, and my hubby got the garlic linguine. They were both SO DELICIOUS! Especially the cioppino! I highly recommend it!... More

Travelling down the 101 for a winter visual and found this gem while spending the evening in Newport. Just excellent seafood, service and atmosphere. Both had Shark's Cioppino and was just outstanding. And if you love the sauce, you can take a packet home. All seafood steamed to perfection and prepared to order. Fabulous spot not to miss.

We have a family house in Depot Bay, and visit the coast a couple of times a year. This is hands down my favorite restaurant in the area and I visit every time I come. They have the best food in town, and combined with the best service it just can't be beat. I usually get the dungeness crab plate... More

Excellent seafood served in HUGE portions, bring a friend or take some home with you. It is a small setting with minimal room and a friendly wait staff.

The outside is deceiving as this place is a diamond in the rough. The service was spectacular, the chef was friendly and entertaining and the food was amazing! Make sure to sit at the bar and you can't watch the magic happen!

The Chioppino is good and the pan roasts ( not a roast ) are excellent. It is a bit pricey but the service and the food is very good. Very small restaurant and very limited seating.

Our server (who seemed to be co-owner, also) brought out two bowls filled to-the-brim with their rich, lovely seafood soup. She described them as "voluptuous" and spilled not-a-drop in bringing them from the kitchen to our table. See the accompanying photo. It was delicious, absolutely first-rate. If you visit Newport and you enjoy a good cioppino, put this on your... More
