“What a great find”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Living in Newport 1/2 the year I am pretty aware of the dining treasures that exist in this town. This weekend I had visitors in town and could not get a reservation at a popular restaurant a couple of doors away from Malt. We were taking out of town guests and wanted to trace them to a a great place. Just that afternoon someone mentioned I should try Malt. Was that a great choice. Of the four of us dining we had three different entree's all prepared creatively in a manner you rarely see. The pasta is made fresh on the premises and the fish was prepared wonderfully. They do have a limited choice menu but that is understandable given the attention given to each dish. Prices were decent for Newport, and the atmosphere was great. If you are real hungry the entree will likely not satisfy you without appetizer or a dessert. Malt is a winner!

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Malt is owned by a delightful Irish couple who really care about good service and great food. The decor is charming and everything I've tried on the menu has been delicious. I can't get enough of the Malt Burger with bacon and camelized onions. Newport restaurants often seem overpriced, but that's not the case at Malt. Don't hesitate to stop in, order drinks, and stay for a meal!

“A Perfect Friday Evening”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Malt is a new restaurant and from our experience last evening I hope that it will be around for a long time to come. First the service was wonderful...attentive but not overwhelming. Our waitress, Olivia, was so helpful and knowledgeable. She kept the evening moving at just the right pace and while there were two events happening at the bar, you would never know if it created any stress for the staff as they were just as lovely, cheerful and helpful as could be. An extensive beer menu, a good wine menu, amazing cocktails and great scotches make this a great place to visit after a long week. Four of us enjoyed beer, martinis (two thumbs up on the Wild Child made with rosemary infused vodka) and scotch. We each ordered an appetizer...calamari, a cheese plate, duck con fit spring rolls, and the most amazing thai shrimp nachos with a thai sauce that we were practically licking out of the bowl. Nothing about the evening disappointed, including the check. We won't hesitate to return!
