We went to the MainSail for New Years Eve Dinner. Honestly I was underwhelmed with the atmosphere as well as the food. The calamari appetizer was average, short ribs were short on flavor and sauce, Lobster mac and cheese was very good. I guess we were expecting more of a romantic atmosphere and found the place to be a bit... More

I was looking for a restaurant that offered a buffet during the week and found that the Mainsail is one of the only places in Newport. I was dining by myself and happened to be the only person in the restaurant at that time. I was so pleased that each staff member I came across engaged me in conversation. The... More

Fresh food, well made and plentiful. Would definitely eat her again. The omelette station was a wonderful touch. I loved the fresh cut fruit and waffle station.

My husband and I picked to eat here for our first wedding anniversary dinner, and we regretted our decision. We spent over $100 on our meal (and I only drank water because I’m pregnant) and did not get quality food worth the high price we paid. Our waitress was okay, not super friendly and certainly didn't go out of her... More

We ate here as Marriott hotel guests. Breakfast buffet. Very expansive with options for individually cooked omelets, waffles, and eggs. Great choices of fresh fruits, bagels, muffins and cereals. Bacon and eggs on the buffet were excellent. Service was prompt and coffee and milk were part of the buffet. If you awaken hungry, this is the place to be. The... More

NIce restaurant. Not a lot to choose from but the hamburger was good, salad was excellent. A little pricey for what you get but nice setting harbor side in the Newport Marriott.

I went to Newport with my twin sister and mom to have a local kinda low key birthday. Initially we went over to the Brick Alley Pub for dinner but they had a 30 minute wait and we were doing a ghost tour at 8. The tour meeting place was right outside the restaurant at the Marriott so we figured... More
