Wen here for an after work event. The atmosphere was nice..sort of industrial and new age. The food was good and the libations flowed nicely.

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals at the Fifth on Nov. 26th. The Grilled Bistro Filet with garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables was absolutely delicious......perfectly cooked to our liking, succulent & tender. Our server Justin was terrific; attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. To top off our meal we enjoyed the Fifth's signature Sticky Toffee Pudding, yum,... More

All fare ok, but nothing to write home about, so I am doing it here. Waiter not too engaged, a little less involved than is preferred. Maybe this is the place to go for drinks and pizza or the burger, but not the entrees. Pricey for what you get, fish and veg main course, and draft beer menu uninteresting. Also... More

An evening in Newport and chose Broadway because we had tickets for the 10 pm show at the Firehouse Comedy Club. Fifth had good reviews and menu was interesting. First impression-loud! Hostess welcoming and sassy, waitress was average, not engaging. We ordered the Cod and the Filet, both good. Thought prices were high for tavern atmosphere. Not sure we'd return,... More

The fifth element is a very good restaurant in Newport. My husband and I started with two drinks, the melon martini, which was awesome, good balance of alcohol and sweetness and the grapefruit fizz, which was less sweet but still good and for food we ordered the spinach balls, they were very tasty, and delicious and the mussels, although the...

I went here for a friends birthday recently and had a blast. The atmosphere is beautiful, lots of great art work and a very cool bathroom sink. The Kitchen is open, which is entertaining to watch and the bar has very cool waterfalls behind it. We had a good sampling of the menu and everything was good. the salads were... More

Fifth Element takes reservations! The food is innovative. We ordered sweet beet treats which are bread made with beets, roasted, pickled beets and ricotta and nuts. Marriage made in heaven. You can tell that a lot of thought was put into this dish as well as the cocktails and the meals. Salmon with chick peas and artichokes was delicious! Would... More

Just popped in here last minute, no reservations, and didn't even look up the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. We had the roasted zucchini pizza (great!) and the spicy lamb poutine. Both were so good that we tried to make both when we got back home. We received good value here and were glad to have a reasonable check total... More
