“Good Wine Dinner”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate here on the day we arrived in Newport. We ordered a bottle of Pino Noir ($30). We had a selection of cheeses and meats for an appetizer. We also had olives and Marcona almonds. The total was about $120 with tip.

The service was good, but not super attentive. Also, We sat on the third floor with has a bar, but offers a nice view of the water.

“Good Food and Beautiful Location”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Went here for dinner while staying in Newport. The food was good, although I do wish there was a bit more varity. The staff was really nice and checked in a few times during the meal. Even the bus buy was interested in how our meals were and was extreamly friendly. We were unsure what wine we wanted and insted of just giving our their favorite or having us choose they brought over both bottles and had a mini tasting.It was great!

“Great Evening”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Went to Fluke after researching restaurants in Newport from home (Chicago). It looked like a great place for wine/drinks and small plates; although there were many great large plates. There were three of us in our party so we decided to begin with a cocktail and a couple of appetizers. We did a cheese plate and the calamari, which were both outstanding. For dinner we ordered a couple of large plates and some small plates/sides. It was plenty for us and delicious. Dessert was not to be missed.
We sat upstairs(2 flights) in the bar area. The main dining was also upstairs(1 flight). I think I would recommend sitting near a window, which had wonderful views and in the main dining room.
The waitress we had gave us suggestions and all were good ones. She was pleasant and patient with us.
It wasn't cheap, but we tried a good amount of dishes and each had a couple of cocktails.
Great choice!!

“fab meal”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Wow, we had a really amazing evening here on a recent trip to Newport on a whirlwind tour of New england for my 40th birthday. Fluke was recommended by our Innkeeper at the Ivy Lodge, he said it was his favourite restaurant in Newport and wow we were not disappointed.The views from the restaurant are amazing at night. The food was wonderful and we had a great waitress who made really informed suggestions. the meal was amazing and the 'goats cheesecake' was to die for. reeally stunning modern american food for a decent price. great service and fab location. even followed up the waitress' recommendation for a bar after and had a continued great night at perrosalado with margeritas to die for. Go to Fluke.
