We had a nice late lunch on a cold winter day. We could get a table with a harbor view. Service was nice and quick. Food was good quality but clearly aimed for the tourist crowd.

Very nice nautical themed restaurant with high quality food that is positioned right on the water looking out at Newport Harbor. Bar and dining rooms are among the best in Newport.

We loved the Mooring! It was our favorite food of the entire trip. Service was good, I wouldn't say excellent but good. But the food was to die for. Definitely a place to visit while in Newport!

Great Question, I guess I do not know since I never tell anyone how old or when my birthday is. Truth be told I usually forget the date. LOL
