  1. Can sit at a table inside and see the river:

    H5O in Hotel Fifty
    Thirst Wine Bistro
    Three Degrees in Riverplace Hotel
    Full Sail Brewery (aka Pilsner Room) at Riverplace Hotel (depends where you sit)
    McCormick & Schmick's Harborside

    Is right by river but have to sit outside to see river:
    Veritable Quandry

    Is in river:
    Newport Bay

      thnaks, jillo. i personally like th e"in the river" option. you covered all bases.

    2. Harborside is nice, they offer 3 tier seating with very pretty views. Lots of fresh seafood here and great service. :)
