My husband, daughter and I sat at the bar served by Brad and Fred and had the best meal! Fish tacos. Waldorf Salad. Quinoa Tofu. Spinach Balls and the must eat dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding. No joke my 14 year old ordered and ate a second one! We HIGHLY recommend taking in the handmade decor and fantastic food!

Went to a family birthday party at the Fifth Element. It was a great time. The food and bar services was great. The Jazz band that was playing was very enjoyable not to mention the amazing drummer.

We had a farewell party for a co-worker and Brad and his team could not have been easier to work with. The food was very well prepared with a lot of attention paid to detail. Service was wonderfully attentive and we were made to feel very welcome. We had an assortment of apps which were all great but my favorite... More

Heard the Jazz was great here on Monday evening. Having never visited this venue, I opted to dine here as well! My choice off the menu was The Element Salad and the fish tacos! Server is Erika and she is addressing all my requests! Terrific food, wonderful music and great atmosphere!!

This is the first restaurant we tried when we arrived in Newport. It opens at 5pm and is apparently very popular so you should definitely make a reservation. Great food, great service, nice ambiance! What more can you ask for?

This is one my favorite place to visit and dine whenever I am in Newport. The ambiance, food, staff are wonderful and always guaranteed fun time with a great meal. The restaurant is very clean, consistently offers innovative menus. They make best martinis and mixed drinks that I ever had in the area. It’s great destination for an evening out... More

Not only was the food amazing, but every sinful bite of the 3 course meal was met with kindness, flexibility, and the willingness necessary to create a beautiful wedding event. And further, if affordability wasn't enough, when the weather changed and anything that could go wrong did, and at the very last minute, Brad and the staff at The Fifth... More

Stopped in for Dinner with my wife. Very cool atmosphere with open air seating to the street. Started with the Mussels with andouline and spicy red sauce- really delicious but it was SPICY. Our entrees were the Chicken and Salmon, both were good but the Chicken Paillard was better. My wife's the mixologist and the specialty cocktails were just OK... More

Our B&B owner suggested we try this restaurant as it was more of a locals establishment. Our waitress, Jasper, was very knowledgeable regarding the drink & food menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and our visit. Great key lime pie for dessert!

I had a rehearsal dinner at the 5th Element a few weeks ago. It was an appetizer buffet style event in the bar area and it was the perfect place to encourage mingling and families getting to know each other. It was hard to choose food from the great selections offered. But, the eclectic assortment of dishes went over well... More
