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

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
