Avoid the Cityside in Newport

by Ron Johnson » Thu Dec 27, 2007 7:29 pm

I tried the new Cityside tavern on Monmouth street in Newport last night. What a mistake. Avoid this place. The daily special was a philly cheese steak sandwich with fries and slaw for $6.95. We each got one. They were forgettable, but not terrible for that price. Then we got the check. We were charged $9.95 for each sandwich. I called the server over to show her the error. She said that $6.95 was only for the "daily" special, and because we ordered ours at 7:15 pm we were charged the night time price. What???? She said that the night time version comes with two sides. I pointed to the board where the specials were written and noted that it said served with fries and slaw too. She shrugged and said, "yeah I told them to erase $6.95 at night." and then she walked off. I was furious because she had already run my card through before I noticed the mistake. I will NEVER, EVER darken the door of this place again. Mediocre to bad food in a super-smokey atmosphere with that kind of shenanigans going on with the prices. No way. Do yourself a favor and skip this place.
