  • 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 custo... Read more

  • We just had our wedding here on the weekend of May 19th, 2018. It was absolutely perfect. It was cold, windy and rainy but the venue was so flexible and allows for the perfect setting under any circumstances! We held the ceremony inside and they were constantly watching the weather to see if we could switch anything to outside at all times, right up until the ceremony. It did not matter at all that it rained, because the ballroom was absolutely gorgeous and our guests were able to stay warm and dry throughout the evening. The food was incredible and the staff was perfect. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was, from start to finish. I would definitely recommend OceanCliff to anyone getting married and wanting beautiful views, a wonderful planning experience and amazing food.

  • Oceancliff is truly the perfect wedding venue. My wife and I chose it because of the beautiful location but, in every aspect of the wedding planning process, Oceancliff exceeded our expectations. Of course, the wedding was beautiful (even though there was heavy rain on our wedding day) the food was superb and the service was impeccable. However, the real strength of this venue is that they assist you at every stage of the wedding planning pr5ocess and they make the planning process both manageable and actually a lot of fun. I cannot recommend Oceancliff enough, there really is no other choice for a Newport wedding!

  • We had our wedding here October of 2017 and we couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Amanda who was amazing! The grounds are just so beautiful as is the venue. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and everything went just as planned. Also, many of us stayed multiple nights in the rooms which are very clean and comfortable. So happy with how our special day turned out and can't thank the staff at OceanCliff enough for everything they did! Can't wait to go back and visit!!

  • We just got married at OceanCliff this past Saturday (10/7/17) and I don't even know where to begin - our experience was absolutely amazing!!! We couldn't wait to get on here and rave about our experience as well as thank the whole OceanCliff staff for providing us with the best memories and a place to return each year to celebrate. We worked closely with Amy throughout the whole planning process and she was so kind and accommodating, from working with special dietary requests to easing any planning anxieties that arose. There was a wedding in the morning before ours at night and the staff helped us plan in detail to make sure we understood exactly where we were able to get pictures on time and ensured both wedding parties were accommodated with what we needed on schedule. Additionally, KC was our coordinator and was seriously amazing (don't know how he does it)!! He made sure everything ran perfectly on the day as did our incredible captain, Gail, who was incredibly kind and made s... Read more

  • We got married at OceanCliff on 9/9/17 and it was absolutely perfect. First of all, our wedding coordinator, KC, was amazing. He was totally to the point, professional, and got everything done and done well. At one point I realized that I had forgotten to bring our card box (and I live in Boston so going back to get it was not an option) and he found an awesome alternative to use as a card box that was totally perfect (and honestly better than what I was planning to use). KC made sure everything went on time, ran smoothly, and consulted me whenever/if anything came up which I really appreciated. We also stayed at OceanCliff I and II and he brought our lunch (plus an extra bottle of champagne!) to our room himself which I really appreciated. In the lead-up to the wedding I worked with Amy McCoil to plan the layout, catering, and other specifics of the wedding. Amy was very responsive, helpful, and would field so many emails from me every week. I'm not kidding when I say there were times... Read more

  • I cannot say enough great things about our wedding venue. My husband and I got married here in August of 2017. The location is absolutely breathtaking and the service they provide is topnotch! We had a pre- bridal lunch on the upper deck, ceremony outside, wedding reception in the ballroom and an after party on the Safari Room terrace! Our guests are still raving about our venue over a year after our wedding! Planning a wedding when living out of town is stressful, but OceanCliff went above and beyond make sure everything ran smoothly.

  • WONDERFUL!! We booked our rehearsal dinner at Oceancliff on their upper deck, it was a dream come true with a beautiful background and a gorgeous tent. Our family was blown away. Shauna was perfect to work with, she took care of everything that night and even add some extra flowers around the bar and buffet to give it a nice touch. She had such wonderful attention to detail. Doug and I can't thank you enough for everything you did that night it was wonderful!

  • Had my wedding (both ceremony and reception) at OceanCliff last weekend and it was an absolutly AMAZING experience for my husband and all of our guests. It is a classic Newport venue, you CANNOT beat the view! We did the bare minimum and took their advice with the timing for the events and received nothing but praise from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and how organized the staff was throughout the evening. Everything flowed nicely without any awkward waiting. The staff was fantastic, they scrubbed the dirt stains out of my dress without prompting after taking pictures on the lawn while I sipped a freshly made drink and given copious amount of appetizers. I call that service above and beyond. I was told by multiple people it was the best wedding they have been too, which I greatly attribute to the organization and flow of the evening mostly planned and carried out by the staff. Food was great. Drinks on point. Our whole bridal party stayed at the venue which made th... Read more

  • We had our wedding at OceanCliff in April 2018. When we first looked at OceanCliff as a venue we were impressed with how breathtaking the venue was and how, even during off-season or a rainy day, you still had a stunning view from the reception area through the wall-to-wall glass windows. Amanda was incredibly helpful and professional through the sales process, and Kim and Bree were amazing day-of coordinators who made the whole event flow seamlessly. The cocktail hour area felt like a large home with multiple rooms, bringing everyone closer together, and the bartenders were very attentive. The waitstaff did an excellent job with the service all night long. Empty drinks and appetizer plates weren't left on tables for longer than 30 seconds the entire cocktail hour. The plated meals came out quickly and were delicious - we got a lot of compliments on the taste of the food. Our one issue with the venue was their lack of flexibility with vegetarian options - but we were ultimately ... Read more

  • The venue itself is beautiful and the food is good but be prepared to figure out and do everything yourself. Also, be aware that they have no security in place to prevent hotel guests from wandering around; At the end of my wedding I was approached by two total strangers carrying favor bags in their hands who complimented the reception then complained about the noise as they could hear the party from their room. Sales gave us misinformation about the hotel rooms and afterparty, even being short to the point of rudeness when I tried to get answers. Of course, I should have been directing afterparty questions to the "Safari Room" team (or is it the "Banquet" team?) but didn't find that out until a meeting with Catering a few weeks before the actual wedding day. When I sent emails to the various teams it would take up to a week to get a response. There is a completely different set of staff for almost every aspect of the day and they don't seem altogether that interested in communicatin... Read more

  • The views and decor are breathtaking, and honestly that's what your paying for at OceanCliff. Trying to contact them with a response time any less than a week is difficult once you sign the contract. They are accustom to doing weddings in a certain way and if you waver and try to do it in a different order (meaning who walks on what side down the aisle or when the speech of the Best Man is or if their is a certain dance etc) then you may need to remind them multiple times (even if you wrote it down). The food however was great! The servers at the venue were outstanding. The head people (managers) needed to contact and work with were not as good as expected. I expected more customer service and responsiveness then what I had received. However its a beautiful place with great food!

  • My husband and I had such a wonderful experience with Ocean Cliff from day one. Our initial tour with Susanne Day was amazing, and we immediately fell in love with the venue. This location is breathtaking. The ballroom is exquisite, with huge windows overlooking the ocean. The space outside for the ceremony and cocktail hour cannot be matched. We also loved the fact that The Safari Room is an attached restaurant that is perfect for an after-party. Your guests can literally walk a few steps from the reception to the after-party. So convenient! The people we worked with at Ocean Cliff were amazing -- Susanne Day, Jim Maher, Liz Bishop, Shauna, and Laura, to name a few. They will help you take care of everything. Our wedding day was not stressful or chaotic, and everything fell into place perfectly, thanks to Ocean Cliff's expert planning and experience. If you're considering booking at Ocean Cliff, do it! It's truly the PERFECT venue, and you will have an absolutely incredible... Read more
