    Delicious meal; excellent service. Our table of 3 shared lobster raviolis and the best Caesar salad to start, then continued with entrees of chicken fried New York strip, boneless ribeye, and crab-topped salmon. All were served with chipotle mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. For dessert we shared the bread pudding. Everything could not have been better -no exaggeration. Perfectly seasoned. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. We were able to enjoy conversation at a relaxed pace and welcoming atmosphere.

    We loved Newton’s food! It was amazing. We got the chicken fried New York strip and the ribeye with shrimp. Chipotle mashed potatoes were fabulous. High quality ingredients and cooked perfectly. The only complaint we had is the noise level, but it won’t stop us from going back. A great meal for a special occasion!

    We waited over 1 hour for our food to find out the waitress forgot to put our order in. Once this was straightened out the Chef personally brought our food which was excellent. I believe everyone needs a second chance and we will try it again at a later date to see if the problems have been corrected.

    Musician was too loud to even communicate with servers. Food quality was not quite what one would expect for the price. Mr. Newton was extremely cordial and checked on us regularly. Hostess was a bit disorganized. Sent several messages as much as 3 days prior to reservation. Finally got a partial/minimal response 5 minutes before we were being seated. It was definitely not just a normal dining experience, definitely a nice place, but just not what we expected from a place that considers itself the best in town.

    Newton's Cellar is an amazing place for a special night, date night or even just an evening alone at the bar. The best part is Chef Newton and his lovely wife Melanie are always out and about, helping seat, run food and discuss the menu with you. They are very dedicated to making sure you have the best experience possible. You will not be disappointed!

    Found Newton a month ago for a graduation lunch. Lunch was great and decided to try Newton for dinner. Dinner was incredible and Bailey the waitress is the best waitress I have encountered in a while and will most definitely be requesting her in the future. Bottom line drinks, dinner, dessert and the service was impeccable.
