Having our hotel within walking distance from Back Bay Bistro was a delight to visit for dinner.
Yes of course I am one to visit the restaurant's website for the menu and I was impressed by the choices they had prior to our 1st visit ever.
The space is huge and not cluttered with tables next to tables. As we were here for dinner, we did not use, but we did see they had event space which was nice.
Well here in December, got to see there decorations and nice display of trees decorated. Nice holiday touch.
I went with the Salmon, a salad and the marked 'Award Winning' Seafood Chowder. Boy oh boy - the seafood chowder was amazing!!! Award winning it is. I'm not one for seafood chowder but this was the best. I should have went for a bowl instead of a cup. As chowder can be different in many places. BBBistro - think of it as a close rendition of New England Clam Chowder but with a great kick and punch. Props to the cooks!
Our order was spot on with nothing missing. The manager came over on his 2-bite rule asking if everything was ok. Sure was!

Pros: food, view of the Bay, seafood chowder.

Arrived early on Sunday Morning and the staff was prompt and friendly. There is a brunch buffet available however we ordered from the menu. The food arrived fast and hot. The coffee never ran low and the entire staff greeted us with a smile and well wishes.

We also had a a small child with us and they were very accommodating to those needs as well.

Thanks for the great breakfast.

A friend and I sat at the bar. It was not busy, although service was a little slow. Food was good and reasonably priced. It was chilly and dark, but it looked like a nice view and great outdoor seating.

Back bay bistro, the best view, the best Sunday brunch you will Ever have. Enjoy the boats coming and going out to sea. Because your right next to the launch ramp. It is inside Newport Dunes R.v. park. Pet and kid friendly. Great place!

This place is off the beaten, touristy path in Newport, which makes it quieter, with plenty of validated parking. The restaurant is airy and well lit, with lots of windows and an outdoor eating area. We were a party of six, for Sunday champagne (or mimosa) brunch (an added $5, well worth it). The food was tasty and fresh, the service friendly and attentive, the stations set up so there was no crowding, not even at the omelet station. We will definitely return when we return to Orange County (which is frequently).
