New favorite!

Multiple trips to Newport, first time to Fifth Element! We very much enjoyed it. The atmosphere is neat walking in. All open air, so that was awesome. Must start out with the spinach balls! All of our entrees were superb, everything tasted very fresh. I wish we weren't so full after entrees... read more

Frank and Brad, the owners, did an amazing job with our group party after a long day of drill. We met at the bar around 5 pm with the windows/doors open overlooking Broadway in Newport. Our group was around 70-80 with families included. This was also my retirement so my family and I set up a tab with Frank and... More

We ate light with appetizers and salads. Spinach balls were so good and flavorable. Salads were great. Splurged with the sticky pudding cake - Yummy.

We spent 3 days in Newport and ate at a nice restaurant each night. I can remember what I had at the other two but not what i had at Fifth Element. At the time, I thought it was good and my wife enjoyed her meal too. But, in retrospect, it simply wasn't memorable.

Stopped in for dinner on a rainy night in Newport. Inside looked very trendy. The Wait Staff was friendly and there was no wait for a table, but we were off season. The menu had very enticing options and the meal I had was outstanding. The prices were fair and there were a lot of different types of beers to... More

Staff, food and vibe were great tonight! It was a rainy cold night but the restaurant was warm and cozy. Great band to keep the night fun. I had the monk fish which was very good and my husband has the burger which was also good. Definitely would also be great on a warm summer night with the sliding glass... More

We had our wedding dinner at the Fifth Element in November of 2014. The owners Frank and Anna were over-the-top helpful, designing a delicious menu with Marina their chef (they even created a seasonal vegetarian dish for us), decorating the tables with handmade Scandinavian centerpieces and place cards, baking the wedding cake. It was a festive, joyous occasion, better even... More

Vibrant bar scene, delicious specialty pizzas, reasonable wine prices by the bottle. Cool atmosphere in the heart of downtown area. Good for groups, families or couples.

A nice alternative in the area. Food choices are creative, and good (the garlic mashed potatoes are delish, but so are a number of other healthier alternatives), the atmosphere is fun - good music on weekends too, service is friendly and good, although not over the top, and drink selection is pretty good too. Def a place on our list... More

Last week, my husband and I enjoyed a meal at Fifth Element. We decided to try it based on other reviews. We shared the mussels appetizer which was in a spicy tomato broth. It was very tasty and sufficient for two people. We both had the bistro filet and that was also very good. They were cooked exactly as requested.... More
