Very small spot with great ambiance. Lobster ravioli fantastic. Entire experience for a special occasion was wonderful. Note: Beer & wine only, not a deal breaker, but a full liquor license would be a plus. We will return!

What amazing food. Perfectly cooked and combinations of taste, texture and colour which I would not have thought of. We shared a table portion of the salad with prawns . The dressing was sublime and we all wanted more.. I DO NOT like Brussel Sprouts and was really surprised to find them on the plate with prawns. I was even... More

This is a fantastic French setting to have dinner. They had a regular menu, specials and a prix fixe. I was dying to have scallops and luckily for me, they were on the menu! I chose to have a salad before that. It was a crisp variety of greens with pears, cheese and almonds with a very light tasty dressing.... More

My beautiful bride and I were celebrating our 36th anniversary and were hoping for a perfect meal. We have traveled round the world and had amazing meals. This was everything we hoped for. Lamb amazing, lobster ravioli perfect. Don't hesitate make a reservation and sit back and enjoy.

We rolled in here early on a Saturday night, early in December for dinner. The wind was howling and rain going sideways as we entered the restaurant. We were greeted in a very friendly fashion and seated right away. Our food was fast (and hot) in coming and the service was perfect. Our waitress kept an eye on us without... More

Every moment of our time at Newman's was amazing and memorable. Friendly staff, from the hostess Sam, to our waitstaff Wendy, & Erin. The menu made it nearly impossible to pick just one entree each. When our creations did arrive we were beyond pleased. Wine selections are creative and uncommon for the Oregon Coast. When we went out to our... More

To be fair, we were on an evening that was packed with OR Parks people. We were escorted around back and upstairs to a small room with other diners. Service was very slow from the kitchen, but the food was very good; chef personally apologized, an indicator of their commitment to top food and service. We'll have to try again.

Very small place, too many tables squished into the space. The waitress had too many tables to handle so service was very slow and uneven. We ordered crab cakes, they came out black. Waitress took them back, the kitchen scraped off the worst of the black, and put the remainder on a smaller plate and sent them back out to... More

Had another wonderful dinner and excellent accommodating service. My husband ordered the prix fix dinner and I asked our personable waitperson if I could have the same duck that was offered on the prix fix menu, even though I was going the ala carte route. Of course! was the response. Everything we ordered was excellent from the roasted tomato soup... More
