5th Element is high up on my list of places to eat in Newport! The ambiance is great with lots of quirky touches and the place offers options for diners - the more cosy, romantic dining room or the bar area with all the games playing and a pretty impressive bar! The staff are cool, the food is great whether you opt for the formal menu or just the pizza of the day and they make some great drinks (good wine selection as well). They have live music a few nights a week - would recommend making a reservation for dinner as they get pretty busy. Go on, try it - you wont regret it :)

I have to say that the 5th Element is a fantastic restaurant. I ended up there for a bachelorette party Saturday night and everyone loved the live music, dancing, and the service was great! We did not have to try to get a bartender to notice us, they were very attentive and they were very busy so that was great! On the following Sunday we went back to the 5th for a Bridal Shower and they specially opened the restaurant for us, had an unbelievable brunch including appetizers (fruit salad, cheese plates, pizza, nuts, spinach balls), and desserts! They have an unbelievable new chef who creates very unique dishes including vegetarian :) It was really nice to see how different the atmosphere was during the day, very sophisticated and again amazing service. Guests were very impressed with the décor of waterfalls, and artwork on the walls, the couches provided a great place to open gifts with the window open behind them. Overall this place is definitely the place to go for any event and the owners are very hands on and want you to have a great experience. Definitely put the 5th element on your list for cocktails, dinner, or a private event- you won't be disappointed!

The Fifth Element is a great place to go for dinner or drinks. Cool atmosphere and the staff is friendly. They make awesome specialty drinks and food is always great. I suggest the burger and the pizzas are so good especially if you like thin crust. They typically have live music and can be a great spot for last call of the evening.

The Fifth is by far the best place in Newport to have a wood-fired pizza, They are constantly creative, have wonderful ingredients and the staff is top-notch! The ownership are guys that worked their way up and have a passion for good food, drinks, fun and music. If you are coming to Newport and want to get away from the trappings of America's Cup Avenue, come to Broadway and visit the 5th. There are a bunch of great places in the area and the 5th is the top of my list for a place to watch a game, have a cocktail or get some great food without all of the pomp and crowds in the downtown scene...and it's easy to park!

The Fifth Element has it all. You can go there for a quiet dinner date in the dining room and enjoy the cozy atmosphere and (my personal favorite) the bistro filet and there signature grape martini or come with a few buddies and grab a pizza and a few beers at the bar to watch the game. I have been here countless times and few places have been a better overall dining and drinking experience.
