Fluke Wine Bar and Kitchen
Get the Oysters!We were so glad we took the recommendation of a friend familiar with Newport -- my husband and I were SO impressed with the quality of the local seafood at this place. I started with the lightly fried oysters ... I forgot for that night that I am not generally a fan of oysters. They were outstanding. My husband started with the equally fantastic calamari. Both of us applauded the local fish we had for entrees. For dessert, we had the butterscotch bread pudding and dessert wines. Together with the lovely view of the sea at sunset, we could not have been happier. Thanks to our server for her spot-on recommendations. Book a reservation ... you can't go wrong!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLeft hungry, but impressedFluke is a great restaurant; the food is outstanding and the servers are very accommodating. If you're very hungry, it's not a good choice. EVERYTHING is small, even the entrees. The small plates should really be re categorized into "mini plates" and "microscopic plates" but if you're ok with having one or two bites of something, you're in for a great. Prices are too high for the quantities, especially with all of the competition in close proximity. Be careful with ordering drinks, the bartender is phenomenal but the cocktails on the menu are very different so ask before you order.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWeekend awayThe food was unusual and outstanding. We had a noisy patron next to us but the staff handled it appropriately.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI mixed up our reservationsI mixed up our reservations and arrived at Fluke on Friday night instead of Saturday night. Management could not have been more accommodating - called restaurant where we were supposed to be and switched our reservations for us. Food was excellent and all of our servers were delightful, knowledgeable, and provided outstanding service throughout our meal - we had wanted to come back on Sunday night, but restaurant was closed so management gave us the names and phone numbers of 4 other restaurants in town they thought we would enjoy - all in all a most pleasant experience for our long weekend in Newport.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food in a nice atmosphereVery good food in a nice atmosphere. Service was polite and not stuffy. Upstairs bar fun for after dinner or later evening drink. Wine list a bit pricey.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was so fresh andThe food was so fresh and seasonal - it blew us away and exceeded our expectations.

It's amazing when every bite is filled with flavor and quality.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful cocktails that areWonderful cocktails that are sophisticated and completely unique without being silly. Excellent food all around.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTop quality cuisineThis is a top restaurant, with outstanding cuisine, high-quality service, and unpretentious ambiance. It is the only restaurant that I've ever visited that regularly pours tastes of their by-the-glass wines in order to ensure customer satisfaction. Speaking as the former owner of a small, highly successful French restaurant in a resort town, I recommend it highly.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable evening withVery enjoyable evening with friends. The food was great the lectures between courses were informative and well delivered. Very educational. Some a bit more scientific than others but I can't get enough of that, it was a bit much for some of my friends (non-scientific types)3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Experience fromFantastic Experience from first seating through the entire evening. Attention to detail on the service, knowledgeable staff, and obviously a passionate chef. All signs of great upper level management.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food at newport pricesFood was good but it has Newport prices, meaning we could go there on special occasions, but probably not for a regular night out.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the hummingbird cocktailTry the hummingbird cocktail from their drink menu. It's wonderful!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurantWe had a wonderful time at Fluke in Newport RI.
