Outdoors on the wharf. Pleasant view. Pretty average food, but not bad. Drinks were okay. I might go back here again sometime.

Visited here several times over the course of a 2-night stay in Newport. It was in April 2016 and it was their first weekend open of the season so crowd was low-key. Sat at the outdoor bar and enjoyed a Dark and Stormy while watching the sunset. Had lunch as well outside one afternoon and the fish taco was very... More

My daughter and I were here for our friends wedding reception. Excellent choice of venues! The view was wonderful. We were on the upper level. The food was fantastic... Filet Mignon, Cheese & Mushroom Ravioli, and Seafood were the choices. I can attest that the Filet and the Seafood were delicious!

We didn't get as far as the restaurant which looked equally as good as we decided to eat at the large sit up bar.....which on busy nights people queue for !! On the ball, attentive, friendly service from the bar staff, matched by good quality food and drink. We last visited three years ago and we feel that quality has... More

My wife and I stopped here during the Newport Boat Festival. It was crowded due to the festival but we were seated quickly. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. The food was outstanding as were the drinks. The view is one of the best on the waterfront in Newport. Even with the crowds, it did not feel crowded there.... More

Stopped here for lunch and a couple drinks after getting into Newport. Had a couple drinks and some raw clams, ceasar rap, and short rib tacos. All were tasty but this place is really all about being on the water on a nice day. It was a great lunch because of that.

"Location, location, location" may be all that matters for real estate, but it only gets you part way there if you're running a restaurant. The Landing has an excellent spot on the water at Bowen's Wharf, the popular and busy tourist area right on the water in Newport. Since Newport has a beautiful harbor, the setting for the Landing is... More

Stopped in on Saturday noonish (9/24).The day was a little fall like, but we decided to sit at the outdoor bar right on the water. Thought we would stay for at least a drink, but our server, Terry was so friendly and effervescent, we decided to go ahead and stay for lunch. Everything turned out nicely except the clam chowder,...

After many months of preparing for a group trip to RI with 13 friends for a college reunion trip, which included making reservations well in advance at this restaurant, we finally arrived in Newport. Our group of 13 walked in the rain and arrived for our dinner reservation at the appointed time. We were met with a grumpy old lady... More
