Service from our server Donald was great. All that he recommended was great! The Thai shrimp salad was to die for 👍 We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

What a great find for something different than the touristy restaurants on Thames. Perfect for a girl's night out. We enjoyed delicious "small plates" and awesome drinks!! I can vouch for ceviche, thai shrimp nachos and Brussel sprouts...all really, really good and worth a return trip! The martinis we had were fabulous and the flavor combinations were so unique. The...

We stopped in with another couple on a Tuesday night. We were treated to their special tasting menu (Tuesdays only) 4 courses of really tasty food, in small but just right portions and a choice of beer or wine tasting with each course. Our waitress was great too. This was the favorite meal of our trip! We were pleasantly surprised... More

Here at least once a month for after work debriefing. Thai shrimp nachos, the cheese plate, and a burger to go never disappoint. And the fact that some bartenders get to know you never hurts when it comes to conversations while waiting for friends. Love this place!

Malt may be known for its libations, but we are locals and we love it for its food. The menu is small but all items are well-chosen and carefully prepared. Recently, my roasted cod risotto was exquisite. Our party also had the duck breast, carmelized sea scallops, and coq au vin (thighs!), and everyone was extremely pleased. Be warned that... More

We had such a nice dinner at Malt Friday night. The atmosphere was casual and cozy. The wait staff were friendly. The food was delicious I ordered the cod and risotto. It was cooked perfectly and the Risotto wasn't too heavy and had a nice hint of lemon. My husband ordered a burger that melted in your mouth with each... More

In Newport with another couple for a weekend and looking for someplace to have lunch. The restaurant we were heading to was not open for lunch due to a private party so we wandered up the street and found Malt. It was little past prime lunch time and the place was empty, but the menu looked enticing so we gave... More

Malt was recommended to us by our Innkeepers and what a great recommendation it was. The food was great. The owner met us at the door and took us to our table. Our wait staff was pleasant and helpful with recommendations. Just a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. p.s.- If you like Single Malts this is the place.

Thank happydinerDanbury
