Typical Panera with okay service. They ran out of sourdough bread and substituted something that was about two and half inches tall. Way too much bread.

My quinoa salad was suboptimal with wilting greens and some slimy, there was hardly enough quinoa to say there was any in it. The only saving grace is when I complained they gave me my money back without hesitation. I appreciate that. Everything else was...More

Been to a number of Paneras before, and this was by far, the worst. Crowded, hard to find a place to sit...a lot of people just "camped out" reading, and the food was terrible. Big disappointment.

We stayed at the NEWPORT Marriott for one night and this Panera was right across the street. Service was quick! Establishment is clean and inviting! Very convenient for anyone staying at the Marriott or using the Newport Visitor Center for tours!!

I always get great food at Panera!! Long line, but there were plenty of seats! Hopefully they install the self service register soon to help with that line!

Arrived with a totally full restaurant. But This Panera Bread knows how to move crowds of people quickly. Pay, get beeper, ten minutes food is ready for pick up. Can not beat this service with a big smile. Thanks.

I've eaten at several Panera's but wouldn't call myself a regular. This was an awful experience. Long line, unorganized, clueless and poorly prepared food. Definitely not the Panera standard I've enjoyed elsewhere. Avoid.

(I rated this five out of five compared with other restaurants of its sort - not compared with luxury, sit-down restaurants with extensive menus, linen tablecloths, and romantic atmosphere.) I ate here twice - both times ordering a salad and a sandwich. The lettuce was...More
