We can't explain the joy of stumbling upon a restaurant like Malt. The food dishes were creative, fresh and ample. If you want the ordinary to taste extraordinary...try the calamari appetizer or veal special if available. Also, the tagliatelle was perfect as was the mascarpone infused crepes we shared for dessert. Excellent service and plate timing from start to finish. GO here!

A little way off tourist route so slightly cheaper but really enjoyed the meal with friendly staff. Gathered that locals eat there a lot.

This restaurant took over the spot which once housed Tuckers Bistro. I'm told it has the original chef. What they have done to the space is fantastic. And the menu, although not extensive, seems to offer something for anyone. The day we were there we had the steak special and the rib eye on the menu. We also sampled the risotto. The food is just awesome. We were not disappointed. The bar area is great and they tap beer selection is awesome. This is something that the Newport area was lacking. It's nice to go to a bar and find a local beer on the menu other than Newport Storm. We enjoyed a craft beer brewed out of Pawtucket call Foolproof. If I were to say anything negative. It would be based on our individual experience on the night we dined. It seems as though on Sundays you can't find an owner on sight. This night the manager was also the bartender. Made the fine dining restaurant feel discombobulated. At least to me. The service was a bit lacking. An appetizer we ordered never made it to the table. It was a slow beginning to the night in the restaurant and I was surprised that no one checked in about our experience. What is important here is that the food was awesome, the ambiance in the improved setting was fantastic, the beer selection is expansive. Great choice for a place to eat in Newport away from the tourist area.

If you like beer bars there are certainly a number of options in this neighborhood of Broadway. Malt adds to the list. The selections on draft were great. The vast majority of people were drinking before moving on to dinner elsewhere. This restaurant may have difficulty competing with some of the established restaurants in the neighborhood.

It is already exceedingly popular and was major league crowded the night we ate there. Food was great, fun crowd. Only draw back, no parking and the are already has several other popular restaurants adding to the automotive jam. Take a cab. Great place. Difficult parking only a minor draw back.
