This place gets better and better with time. Service is always impeccable and the atmosphere is great. Try the lobster carbonara, a new twist on an old favorite, not an overwhelming flavor like some others. Staff is consistently good with low turnover so you always feel welcome. If no parking available on the street you can use the Bellevue Gardens parking in the rear and ask Jo’s if they can discount.

We were recommended this hotel by the Inn Keeper at Cliffside Inn, we reserved a table on line and we are glad we did because it was really busy. The lady on the front desk was very abrupt when we arrived and made us feel a little uneasy when she showed us to our table, but our minds were put to rest when our server came to introduce herself she was very friendly and chatty. We ordered two burgers the bistro burger and the bacon onion jam burger, they were both delicious, some of the best burgers we had ever eaten. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

If you are looking for a place to have a rehearsal dinner, look no further. My son in law's family could not have chosen a better place. The food was incredible, the atmosphere was beautiful and the wait staff and bar tenders could not have been nicer. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

I had a delicious dinner here on Sunday night. There was live music which attracted me to the restaurant. I had the grilled shrimp over risotto which was amazing. The waitress was extremely accommodating and hard-working. It was a nice atmosphere and pretty crowded for a Sunday evening. I definitely recommend coming here if in the Newport area
