Good music and good food

We went to Fifth Element during our vacation in Newport because they offerred live music. We went back for more music, and more food; both were good. Our first time was for brunch. We both got the special taco of the day, seabass, and the fish was perfectly cooked and nicely accompanied. We enjoyed... read more

We are spending one week in Newport on vacation and we had worst experience at this restaurant. We booked a reservation based on the reviews from yelp and google for 6 adults and one child Monday night. We arrived at 7pm and were seated promptly by the hostess. Restaurant was almost empty except a few customers at the bar. We... More

No where in Newport for traditional Sunday brunch Buffett nothing starts before 11:30 because alcohol with brunch is critical element. So we ended up here since they opened at 11. Menu on line is not true but close. Hamburger very good but medium is actually more rare. I found it very good. Frittata needed bacon or something since it was... More

I choose this place after reading reviews and my family of 4 went for an early dinner. The servers/hostess were all very nice and did a decent job, but were not particularly outgoing or friendly which normally isn't a big issue for me, but this particular night I was looking for some ideas and recommendations...so was a little flat. I... More

Decided to try this popular restaurant we have driven by often. Today we did and thoroughly enjoyed it. Open windows to the street makes it open and airy and also the AC was on. Perfect comfort. Tried the spinach balls and shrimp taco for appetizers. Both very good. Then we shared a margarita pizza with thin crust cooked perfectly. We... More

We recently held a 30th reunion event at the Fifth Element. We had about 60 people total. What a perfect place. The atmosphere and the food were amazing. Brad and Frank, the owners, were both outstanding to work with. The band, The Merge, started playing at 10:00 and the party really got started. The feedback from our classmates has been... More

My husband and I just got married this past Saturday in Newport, RI. Ahead of the wedding we knew we wanted an after party and did not want the night to end with the reception. After doing some research I came across The Fifth Element, and speaking with Brad and Frank they said they would be happy to host it... More

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- dessert menu looked great! Highly recommend and definitely... 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
