- 32ndAnniversarycoupleDined on 11/22/2014It was my wife's first visit. I had requested a table by a window as it was our 32nd anniversary. We were advised that none were available even though we could see one was available. We were placed at a center table under bright lights. Disappointing location.Special Features:
- dazzleDined on 11/11/2014Crab cake was tasty, but not as crispy on the outside as we would've liked. Enjoyed the selection available for the oysters. The wine selections are very nice. Will return for another meal.Special Features:
- Never disappointedMrchanuteDined on 11/9/2014I've been fortunate to make several recent trips to the Newport Grill, and I'm never disappointed. The wine list, the food, the service, none are ever a disappointment. On this trip I found that there are wine (bottle) specials on Sunday (and I think Monday), where I could purchase a bottle of my favorite wine for about the price of 2 glasses, enjoy it for dinner, then have it corked, sealed, and take home the rest.Special Features:

- Don't bother with brunch.PowercatjktDined on 11/2/2014Took my wife and kids out for her birthday. Was not aware brush was only option. Only seafood items were cold shrimp and salmon. Buffet was very picked over and cold. Drove 90 miles for a special meal and were very disappointed. Evening meals here are wonderful.Special Features:

- Great service, Great qualityseafoodieDined on 10/22/2014Being 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Newport GrillOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/22/2014Went here for our anniversary dinner and had a great experience from the moment we walked in. Staff were prompt and professional and the food was fantastic. We are planning on making our anniversary dinner at Newport a tradition!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- shotsaverDined on 10/18/2014Place 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.Special Features:
- Food, wine and ambiance!MrchanuteDined on 10/14/2014This 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!Special Features:

- Newbie from DetroitGlen48067Dined on 9/27/2014I 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!Special Features:

- Best Outdoor Patio Dining - WichitaOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/20/2014The 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.Special Features:
- ExcellentjustanotherreviewDined on 9/19/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary DinnerMikeDined on 9/13/2014My 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great birthday dinner.DiningindoodahDined on 9/13/2014This 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.Special Features:

- JillJillDined on 9/5/2014We had a great night. We went early and got great service and our food was brought out in a timely manner. Suggestions were made by our server and they were excellent recommendations. It was nice having a reservation through open table. I like being expected for dinner and having our table ready.Special Features:
- Awesome!!Nova44mackDined on 9/1/2014Absolutely 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!!Special Features:
- Always goodHeartlandDined on 8/29/2014We are here at least once a month and it never fails to satisfy. I'd put it at the top of the list for fine dining in Wichita.Special Features:
- MEH...OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/29/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner on the patioSandmanDined on 8/17/2014Pleasant evening outside on patio. Staff attentive and our server - very knowledgable and so friendly. Absolutely recommending it again as we have been dining here several times….Special Features:
- MauidudeDined on 8/15/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great dinnerFoodGuyDined on 8/14/2014Was out of town looking for a good dinner to catch up with old friends, and this fit the bill very well. Attentive service that matched the timing of the conversation perfectly. Drinks and dinner were tasty and the server gave great advice. The server put an extraordinary appetizer platter together for us!Special Features:

- Perfect Celebratory Dinner SpotveggienutDined on 8/1/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Fresh FishBrettinSeattleDined on 7/30/2014Being 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!Special Features:
