    We held our rehearsal dinner at Safari Room at OceanCliff and had a wonderful evening! We chose the Safari Room because we wanted a restaurant in Newport that could handle a very large party and heard some wonderful things from people who had eaten at the restaurant. We worked with several people, all of whom were easy to work with and extremely helpful in creating a menu and setting a space for our rehearsal dinner. We started with cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres on the lawn then moved inside the restaurant for a wonderful lobster and steak dinner. The event coordinator Ashley was fantastic and her team of waiters and barstaff made the evening run so smoothly. The food was fantastic! Everyone that attended had a wonderful meal. Safari Room was even able to accommodate a group of people who arrived very late because of flight troubles! I was so impressed that the evening ran so well especially since there were two other events going on at the same time and the restaurant had customers. Thank you for helping us make a wonderful evening!

    A wedding celebration at OceanCliff means that not only will every detail be executed perfectly, but you and your guests will also be treated to spectacular ocean vistas and the Newport Bridge. I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding in this amazing mansion, capturing all of it's splendor. I couldn't speak more highly of it. Enjoy your wedding planning!

    Excellent venue & staff. Wonderful views of the bay and the bridge. As I always tell my couples...find a unique venue that will create an experience for your guests. If you're looking for a great location for a ceremony by the water...this is it.
