    Being from Houston l've been a little spoiled when it comes to restaurants. Seafood is by far my favorite food. Redfish, Grouper, Flounder, and Oysters are my top 4. Newport Grill could offer one of those four and that was the Oysters. There Oysters were fresh and of average size but expensive. Again we're in the Midwest what you expect? All in all 4 stars. Cheers!

    Place was very noisy and I felt we were hurried through our dinner. Our waitress was great though. For the NY prices, we expected the food to be better.

    This was my third trip to this restaurant...in as many weeks...and even though I live over 100 miles away. My meal has always been excellent...as is the service. There is a fine selection of fresh seafoods and locally raised beef and pork. A very good wine list as well as a good selection of craft and import beers, and an interesting menu of specialty drinks tempts you as well. The entire restaurant overlooks a small Wichita lake. The outdoor dining is some of the best in town. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    I recently relocated for my career from Detroit, Michigan to Wichita, Kansas, and I am so happy to have found the Newport Grill. The menu and wine list is very robust and I have yet to find a dish that I haven't loved. The service is great and you will quickly feel like part of the family. My family came for a visit recently and we went to the restaurant for dinner. When we finished our meal, the chef came to sit at our table to share the secret of his banana bread pudding. The restaurant should be on every resident's favorite list!

  • Best Outdoor Patio Dining - Wichita
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    The outdoor dining area is unbeatable in Wichita. In addition, to the great views of the lake and "Monet" bridge and island the live entertainment is excellent. We tried several appetizers and entrees and we all agreed the clam chowder soup is the best ever tasted. We also loved the salmon, halibut and fettucine entree selections. Great wine selection and prices very reasonable for bottles of wine. Our server, Tim, was excellent and we'll be back. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants and ambience in town.

    This is the first Wichita restaurant I've been impressed enough with to actually write a review. The food and service were both over-the-top and this was probably the best overall dining experience I've had in Wichita in a long, long time. We had the crabcake as a starter and I was skeptical of it being paired with fennel, orange, and avocado, but the flavors paired together quite well. For the main, I had the Creekstone Ribeye. While I could have lived without the sauce, this was otherwise a perfectly prepared piece of meat and well worth the price. I would easily rank it above cuts I've had at other steak/chop houses around town. For future special occasions, this will definitely be one of the first options for dining choices.

  • Anniversary Dinner

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary dinner at Newport and couldn't have been happier. We had never been there before because it is very expensive, but if you're celebrating a special occasion, they really make you feel special. I used Open Table to make the reservation and let them know in advance that it was our anniversary. They gave us a complimentary dessert and one of the primo tables with a view of the waterfall in the back. I got the filet and my wife had salmon - both were excellent. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu. Only complaint was that I wish it wasn't so expensive so we could afford to go there more often!

    This was our first experience at Newport Grill. It was a wonderful and special dinner. I had commented on our reservation that this was a 50th bday dinner. They reserved a window table and gifted a complimentary dessert for us. The service was friendly and the food was exceptional. It was a special dinner.

It was nice having a reservation through open table. I like being expected for dinner and having our table ready.

    Absolutely loved it. Went there with my husband, dad, brother, and 6 month old baby. We sat outside overlooking the pond/waterfall, and it was absolutely gorgeous. I am a vegan, so I wasn't expecting too terribly much at a seafood/steak restaurant, but with literally no notice, the chefs created an INCREDIBLE delicious, healthy dish for me. The other diners, all carnivores and seafood lovers, also raved about their meals. Also, we brought our 6 month old baby boy to dinner. While the restaurant is definitely too nice to be considered "kid-friendly", the staff was extremely accommodating and sweet to my baby. Our sweet waitress actually held and rocked him so I could finish my dessert. I can't wait to go back!!

    I used to tell people that Newport was the best restaurant in Wichita -and the most expensive. I was pretty disappointed last Friday. One waiter came and introduced himself and then he disappeared. We waited around ten minutes for him to come back which he did not. Eventually, another waitress came. She was very good, friendly, helpful. I was just put off that the best restaurant in Wichita was not on its toes. The food was okay... just okay. Normally, I rave about the meals at Newport. I believe that a good meal is worth paying for so I am not put off by their prices but I want the food to be more than just okay. We brought friends on their honeymoon, expecting to give them a wonderful treat. Instead, it was just another meal.

    We enjoy dining at Newport Grill. However, it is very difficult to carry on a conversation when you have to yell to be heard. Something needs to be done about the acoustics. I realize Friday night is the busiest night of the week, with every table full, and this is the reason we seldom eat out then, but we will not be back on a weekend, unless it's for lunch.

    We celebrated our anniversary by splurging on dinner at Newport Grill. The decor is very inviting; the booths are large and comfortable, but elegant. We had a view of the red bridge over the pond at Bradley Fair in Wichita. Cannot say enough good things about the food! Salmon was cooked perfectly and accompanied by house-made ravioli (pasta and ricotta made in-house). The tuna was so lovely- prepared rare, it has a gorgeous jewel tone to it and tasted so fresh. Served with a melt in your mouth crispy kale & quinoa with dried cherries. Wine & dessert are not to be missed here! Our waiter was passionate about the food & very helpful with suggestions. He informed us the seafood is flown in 6 days a week - very fresh!

    Being from Seattle with direct access to fresh high quality seafood, I have to admit I was skeptical eating seafood in Wichita, as snobby as that may sound. But one can only eat steak- as great as they are in these parts - so many days in a row, so i took the concierge's recommendation to try Newport Grill. Went with colleagues to check it out and it has become one of my standby's during travels to Wichita where i know i can depend on a great meal and experience. The fish is flown in fresh 6 days a week and is super fresh and high quality. Prepared nicely without the typical drowning of sauce that masks the flavor of the fish. Great drinks, knowledgeable and personable staff, great fish and al dente vegetables. Overall awesome restaurant!

    Dinner for two was $175 including tip with one cocktail and two bottled beers but no wine. The calamari uniquely seasoned and fried. The calamari itself was a bit rubbery, but the taste was excellent. I chose the filet with crabmeat topping. The filet was tasty, tender and served at exactly the right temperature. The banana bread pudding was as good as any bread pudding I've had in Louisiana, where I used to live, although it might have used a little more rum. The service was really outstanding - professional yet friendly and very helpful.
