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

I don't live locally, but anytime I visit Newport to dine, my favorite place to go to is the Fifth Element. The atmosphere, food and staff are wonderful. Always a guaranteed good time with a great meal. Very clean and consistently good. Best martinis too!!!

Fifth Element is a fun, trendy place to get top-notch food and well-crafted cocktails in Newport. The staff is always friendly and attentive, and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome; Jay, one of the bartenders makes me “fancy water” (water in a wine glass with lemons) as I am 7 months pregnant. It’s these fun, thoughtful touches... More

Had a professional group meeting at the Fifth, with pre arranged menu of crudités and appetizers. The Owners and staff accommodated us in every way: budget, great innovative bistro food, open glass doors for the Newport evening air, and overall a fun happening spot to talk with plenty of space to allow us to relax. All commented on how nice... More
