Lack of staff. Took forever to take order and to eventually get the food. Not apologetic. Go to Salvation across the street.

Poor service - 45 minutes to get a salad. A weeknight when they weren't overly busy. Fish tacos skimpy and cold. We had a reservation - however, larger parties that night seemed to get the better service. Maybe just an off night but not a place to which I would return. Two hours for having a light dinner seems a... More

We had the after party for our wedding at Fifth Element. Ownership and staff were extremely accommodating, the food was fantastic and the band that they had booked for Friday night was awesome. It was the perfect ending to our wedding day. Everyone that attended kept raving about the after party for days.

We visited the Fifth Element on a busy Saturday night during the jazz festival. We were lucky we had made reservations because they were busy. The service was warm and welcoming and the atmosphere was attractive. The food was the star. We loved the mussels and the house salad. Dick had an excellent fillet, which was cooked exactly as he...

We had my daughters bridal shower at The Fifth Element. We couldn't be happier with the choice. The owners, Frank and Brad, did a fabulous job to make this a very special event. The sangria was perfect for a beautiful summer evening. The food, from the bruschetta to the fabulous pizza (which everyone loved!) was delicious. The ambience of the... More

My best friend didn't want an ordinary bridal shower, she wanted more of a cocktail party and I couldn't have imagined a better place than The Fifth Element. The owners, Frank and Brad, went above and beyond on every account to make sure everything was perfect. The sangria was fabulous, the food delicious and the overall ambiance second to none.... More

We had appetizers that included very tender delicious and juicy lamb, chilled Calamari and wood grilled thin crispy crust pizza with fresh basil and mozzarella. All were prepared skillfully and cooked just right.The entrees were all seasoned perfectly from the trout and... More

The food and presentation was wonderful. Live house band played and were not too loud to have a dinner conversation. Really nice evening out.

Went here the other night with my girlfriend. We sat by the fully opened large windows and caught the end of day sunlight - was nice and warm. Girlfriend ordered some spinach balls that were fried and actually really very good. I had a beer and my girlfriend ordered some drink that came in a copper mug. She loved it.... More

My partner and I visit Newport, RI at least once a year and Fifth Element is one of our go-to spots. Both of us being Sci-Fi geeks and children of the 90's, we had to check FE after we saw the name. The space boasts fun, eclectic decor with great music. We fell in love with the Margarita pizza. Seriously... More
