    We visited this restaurant because of a newspaper review, therefore we had already made our entree choices. We were very much impressed with the varieties of oysters and they made deciding on a starter easy. Would like to go back for their version of crab cakes and rumaki . Along with our scallops and lobster souffle, we tried the brule potatoes...WOW. Souffle was very good, unusual and served by the chef. Unfortunately the little claws in the sauce were tough so I will choose one of the numerous fish offerings next time. Since we were celebrating a birthday, the chef brought out a lovely dessert sampling. Service was prompt, food excellent, and the manager stopped by for a chat about mutual friends from PLAZA III. A lovely experience until we went to retrieve our car from valet parking. We joined several others at the fire pit while they hunted for a ladies car. Would like to go on Sunday for brunch and Happy hour to sample more of their offerings.

    I am not sure we will return. For the price and for what is served, doesn't equal. I had the scallops with peas and potatoes. The peas were nothing special. Probably right out of the frozen Birdseye bag. The three scallops were good but I could have done that at home. The pototes were nothing speical. There was nothing special about the presentation either. Again. for the price, it wasn't worth it. However, the waiter was worth it. He was great. I don't mind spending money for a great meal but this was not worth it.

    Try to get there early if you are having dinner so you can take advantage of the great drink and appetizer specials they have until 6 p.m. However, be aware that the Happy Hour menu says it ends at 5:30 p.m but the website says 6 p.m. I had the scallops with polenta and snap peas. My husband had the filet topped with a crab mean sauce. Both were delicious. Since we were there celebrating our anniversary we also got a free desert trio. Our server was excellent!

    Took some clients and sat on the patio on a beautiful night. Our server, Brandon, was knowledgeable and incredibly hospitable. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and then shared some main dishes - which the staff portioned out on separate plates for us. The chef brought out our souffle and when it wasn't cooked to his satisfaction, took it back and brought out another which was exquisite. The pastry chef brought us the best beignets I've ever eaten on the house. Anyway - made me look like a hero and the food was some of the best I've had in Kansas City.

    We have been to this restaurant before and had a family member come to town so we brought her to visit. We had excellent food and outstanding service! Most impressive was the service by Colten he chose to get to know us and give personal testimony on the dishes he recommended. Because of his confidence in the selections we were not disappointed! We highly recommend the "Black and Blue" Filet as this was something our family member wasn't going to have but did on the recommendation and she was thoroughly impressed and loved her meal! We thank you for the terrific experience brought by Colten, he was thorough and very knowledgeable which made our Superb Experience!

    Enjoyed my first dinner at Newport Grill on a Saturday evening. Reservations were at 5:30, so restaurant not yet filled, but by the time I left, it was very busy. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The menu was flexible, in that you can select entrees with either a chef's recommended pairings or select your own sides. The ambiance was upbeat and pleasant. I look forward to my next visit!

    This was our first trip to Newport Grill. It came highly recommended by friends, and we were not disappointed. It was a birthday dinner, and it was outstanding! We sat outdoors and enjoyed the firepit by the dining area. The service was terrific, we enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine, and our appetizers and entrees were "to die for". I had salmon and my husband had grouper - both were delicious. We finished the evening with dessert and coffee - excellent as well. We can't wait for our next trip to Newport Grill!

    We had a great time at the Newport Grill on Saturday. The wait staff was fantastic and the food was too match. My wife had wonderful scallops that although not my favorite were cooked exactly right and had no sand. They were silky and smooth. I had the lobster souffle that had a wonderful flaky crust. I am not sure the lobster that was put in the souffle was actually from Maine, but it was very good. We will be back!

    My boyfriend and I are both in the service industry, and FINALLY had a night off together. I've heard lots of talk, so I thought it'd be perfect for an impromptu date night. We walked in wearing jeans and tshirts, having spent the day running around, yet we were warmly welcomed by several staff members. Our server was Chip. Great guy. He clearly new the menu, along with having personally tried the menu items. (We prefer honest opinions on food, not robotic). He gave great recommendations, and answered all questions. The verdict- Likes/loves: Complimentary bottled water The steak tartar is to DIE for Great wedge, awesome tomato bisque Ahi tuna melts in your mouth Scallops are KILLER Butter cake.

    We dined at Newport Grill on Labor Day - several of our friends had raved about the food and we wanted to see if the fuss was justified. It was. Our server was extremely well trained and knowledgeable about the menu, and made several suggestions for us. He told us how their seafood was flown in daily from the coasts, and that the menu changes daily. My husband had the sea bass and I had the steak. We both had the clam chowder, which was probably the best I've ever had. The texture was like silk, and the flavor was perfect. Both entrees were also incredible-cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. I'm a foodie, and it is rare that I give a restaurant 5 stars, but this place really deserved it.

It was so nice to have Chef Pauly come out introduce himself and check on our experience! The atmosphere was perfect for date night. We had a great waiter Bex who ensured thorough explanations of the food and wine and topped off our experience with his selection of a three sampled dessert that was magnificent!!

    Finally a meal we felt was worth the cost! The food was absolutely delicious and the clam chowder was the best we have had anywhere. The same for the pomme frites and mushrooms with the Bistro Steak selection, which was cooked perfectly for both of us. Dessert was unique, beautiful and delectable. We thoroughly enjoyed the decor, accessories, and quiet atmosphere, hard to find these days, and even the excellent, very friendly staff kept activity noise minimal. We were surprised that so many of the staff stopped at our table to wish us a happy 33rd anniversery, even those not serving us. Very nice touch! We are convinced that this is a destination place for us and will tell everyone about it. Super attention to details. 5 STARS!!!
