BROWN ON THE OUTSIDE, PINK IN THE INSIDE, JUICY, SUPER SOFT AND TENDER, IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH!!! Five Crowns' prime rib that is. It is way better than Fleming's Sunday prime rib! Their service is also unmatched. But even better, their prices are far more reasonable than Fleming's, Ruth's Chris, or Morton's! There's more, their beautiful dining area with... More

My husband used to come here when he was a child so we went recently while on vacation in Newport. It was so delicious and beautifully lit at night. We loved the decor and the outdoor seating was so cozy and lovely. My husband got the prime rib (like butter it was so tender!) and I got a wedge salad... More

My wife and I had been going to Five Crowns since we got engaged 12 years ago. We were going every year, on our anniversary, as a tradition. 2 1/2 years ago, late Nov 2011, we arrived and were told the menu had changed to be more "Napa" like. The Fillets were good but not great, service was horrible and... More

This restaurant never fails to deliver - year after year the staff remains excellent and the food is always dependable - new additions help the menu but the mainstays are what keeps us coming back

Five Crowns is a very good fine dining restaurant but falls a little short from offering an excellent fine dining experience. The prime rib was very good but the mash potatoes were only warm, not hot, and the gravy was almost without flavor. Service was very good but again was slightly less than extraordinary. Ambiance would have been improved with... More

Read about this restaurant on trip advisor and it lived up to its reputation. We were greeted properly and seated immadeately. Then the waitress came right over and took a drink order. The mojito was good the cosmopolitans was bitter, think they forgot something. We were here for the food anyway. For apps we had the lobster bisque which was... More

The carolers are outstanding. The food is very good. The atmosphere is warm, but a little crowded. Reservations during the Xmas Seasons are a must. The place is worth a visit during the rest of the year as well.
