A word from The Fifth Element
The Fifth Element, in its new incarnation, is a casual-hip dining hangout populated by locals, destination diners and tourists alike. The interior is finished with a winning combination of rustic and industrial decor. Its wide open space is hardly cold or sterile. It is warm and welcoming, made so by earth-toned paints, water walls, touches of soft upholstered furniture and a prodigious bar built from reclaimed old growth pine. Like the space in which it is served, the food of The Fifth Element is multi-textured. Chef Chris DePerro builds flavors that evoke satisfying feelings of home cooking, but done by the hand of a pro. In no way is his food homespun. It is well thought out. It is seasonal. It is fresh. Simply, it is food you crave.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Good variety on the menu. I had the rainbow trout. Nice portions. The atmosphere is open air yet cozy. We left before live music but what a nice option for late night"

  • "We all enjoyed our meals but the big hits were the mussels and the sticky toffee pudding. Filet and cod w/ clams were also good as was the Element Salad. Service was excellent - very helpful and friendly. BTW - the cucumber martinis are refreshing and potent!"

  • "Had reservations and it seemed they were a bit understaffed for the crowd. Food was ok - marguerita pizza amd burger good, but pasta was overcooked and the beef not tenderized enough for the cut. More of a bar and burger scene inside"

  • "Was visiting Newport with a friend and just looking for a more out of the way place for dinner. Fifth Element was a wonderful discovery! A little noisy, but not a problem for us. the food was fantastic and a good selection for various tastes. Our waitress was wonderful - and the dessert of toffee pudding was delicious!"

  • "We had a group of 11 over the weekend dine here and the service and food were perfect! We had a variety of appetizers and entrees from the regular menu as well as the specials menu and everyone was happy and satisfied. I would recommend going there."

  • "kids loved pizza and pasta, we had a beef steak and the special of the day (a dorade with curry vegetables)...we ended with a delicious chocolate pudding."

  • "We went to dinner for 7PM on a Saturday night. For drinks we ordered the cucumber martini and dark and stormy...both good choices. We ordered the spinach balls for our appetizer. They were excellent with the right size portion. Wish we knew what was in them to replicate at home. For entrees we ordered off the specials list. We tried the NY strip and salmon specials. Both were very good. There is a limited menu; however, we enjoyed the limited choices. There were plenty of good options to choose and the specials added another five or so options. For dessert we ordered the sticky toffee pudding. This was an excellent choice to end the evening. Our service was good as well. An excellent dinner for our 15th anniversary celebration."

  • "Small menu but delicious food! What really sold me was the cool interior; awesome bar and lounge areas but then you also had a bit more "formal" dining area in another section. Loved the decor and overall feel! Would definitely come again for food or drinks."

  • "Small, but very inventive menu. Apps of Lamb Kabobs and Roasted Oysters were superb. The Entree of a marinated beef steak cut from the shoulder was new to me. I had never tried that cut of meat. Not as tender as Filet Mignon, but much more flavorful and better texture. A Winner."

  • "We are locals and this is one of our favorite places in Newport. Food and service are always excellant. Can be a nice quite dinner in the dining room or fun casual time in bar area...same great food. Live music on the weekends. Always a nice crowd of people having fun."
