Came here for dinner. Very busy and lively, with good, attentive staff. The menu was good, and we had a sharing plate meal of a few starters, which was really as much as anyone would want. The chorizo meatballs were excellent, and the spicy carrots really tasty....oh and then there was the lamb.... all very good. Nice wine by the... More

I dined with my family recently at Fifth Element in Newport, Rhode Island. This restaurant is on Broadway, about a 15 minute walk from the other end of town (Thames Street). Our reservation was made for 8.15pm, and when we arrived it was a hive of activity with a young trendy crowd and most tables taken. We had a nice... More

Been wanting to try this spot for ages and finally made it there. Loved it! The Bistro steak was Delish and bigger than I expected. Cooked medium rare perfectly. And the cider brined pork chops was tasty and the sweet potato purée and Brussels sprouts were wonderful.

The Fifth Element is a newer restaurant on Broadway, not far outside the center of Newport but off the beaten path enough that it's not overrun with tourists. The decor is modern, the staff is extremely attentive, the wine list is long, and the food is great. And you can people watch from any seat!

I have been to the Element multiple times and it is my go-to local restaurant. The food is a "farm to table" style. There are a wide variety of choices, something for meat lovers and veggies alike. They often have live music so the atmosphere is fun and festive.

We went on Sunday around noon for brunch. the food was delicious, and the inside was sunny and busy. There were lots of people seated at the bar, and we got a spot near the band (which was a bit loud), but we were right in the sunny window which was lovely. I had a great bloody mary, and the...

We had a great dinner out and really enjoyed our meals. The options were great - lots of different vegetarian choices to pick from - and everything was delicious. Cauliflower and spinach balls were great! The only drawbacks were the dining room was loud, but settled down as the evening went on, and chilly by the windows.
