“Everything was really great and I just want to express how thankful I am for that. My entire event in Newport had so many moving parts and the staff at Regatta Place was so communicative and easy to work with, that it made my job that much easier. The ambiance, service and food were all exceptional. I will certainly share my experience with others and encourage other planners to use Regatta Place as a venue.

“What a wonderful evening our group had on June 14. Dinner was excellent and our sail on the Schooner Aurora was magnificent. We could not have asked for lovelier weather, tastier food, friendlier service, a nicer crew or a more beautiful ship. Everything was perfect from beginning to end!”

“They really enjoyed your venue. I have to admit that we typically book in the downtown area, but this was so last minute that we had to look for other options. We found a gem! Thank you for your assistance in making this a successful event.”
