Better than Newport!   posted 2015-01-12
Our wedding was on the Friday of Labor Day weekend and Newport is an extremely busy and can sometimes be overpriced. We had researched every restaurant every possible location in Newport for our rehearsal and everyone wanted a minimum tab of $5000 on food and alcohol. We finally decided to go over the bridge to Simpatico and I am so thrilled that we did. Amy, the owner, is truly amazing to work with. She was upfront and honest with us from the moment we met her. My husband and I as well as my now in-laws sat and met with Amy in May and reviewed every aspect of how the dinner would be. We were able to see the private, beautifully decorated room that our dinner would be held in. We were given a menu with multiple options to customize for our guests to eat. We had an ample selection of wine and beer to choose from to serve to our guests as well. The night of the dinner we were truly amazed and impressed at how well run the dinner was and how professional each and every member of the staff was. We had our room reserved for 2 hours and 45 minutes and there was plenty of time for mingling, drinks, appetizers, dinner, speeches and gifts to be handed out. I highly recommend that everyone take the ride back over the bridge and use Simpatico - not only for your rehearsal dinner but for any occasion. We have celebrated many birthdays here and plan to continue to use this restaurant for all of our families special days.

Some friends and I went to Simpatico last evening to celebrate a birthday. Our lovely experience started a week ago when I spoke with Amy to make a reservation. I cannot stress enough what a fantastic staff Simpatico has. The ambiance was lovely, we were treated like old friends, the food came out in a timely fashion and was hot, and the drinks were great. Being a bit of a food snob, I found the menu to be quite nice. One was not overwhelmed with a plethora of dishes, yet the selections for all tastes were there. The food boasted freshness and quality ingredients put together in refreshing and delicious ways. I look forward to many more visits to Simpatico. The restaurant was busy, yet the staff made us feel special.  They not only served the cake, but presented it on a silver platter decorated with fresh flowers that complimented the design of the cake. I highly recommend Simpatico to any diner who appreciates good food, fine ambiance, and a fabulous staff! A particular thank you to Amy, Lisa and Matt!!!!!

“Fantastic rehearsal dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 - Simpatico provided a yummy meal, beautiful setting, and exceptional service for our son's rehearsal dinner. Simpatico's staff made it a breeze to plan our event, with helpful advice on menus and quantity (and their cost estimate for a 25-person dinner was spot on). Our dinner was delicious and the staff exceptional in making our guests comfortable. We're just delighted.
An officiant suggestion....
