Fluke Wine Bar and Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
This place is AMAZING! We have been coming here since shortly after they opened several years ago and we are never disappointed! The service is great, the chef is creative and the owners, Geremie and Jeff are so nice and friendly. This restaurant is just a gem and they also cater to gluten-free/celiac diners like myself. We just can’t say enough about this fabulous place! We live 3 hours away from Newport, but specifically plan drives to here a few times/year so we can enjoy our favorite place in Newport to dine. We plan to continue returning again and again and again....
Everything was so excellent. A wonderful Valentines Day dinner with my wife. Wine list is substantial. Cocktails are top notch and the food was out of this world! Great service and interaction with the owner. Definitely moving to our most favorite restaurant destination list!!
The food was delicious, service was spotty and the atmosphere for New Year’s Eve was non-existent. It was my birthday and my partner called ahead to let the restaurant know of the special occasion. My first dessert choice was out and when my goat cheese cheesecake arrived, it had one sad candle and it was dropped off with rush. I would not go back.
This was a terrific dining experience; casual yet "chic" surroundings- the restaurant is on the second floor and a nice bar area on the third floor. The meal was excellent: hake and sea bass; the owner recommended a wonderful French white wine from the Loire.
I was sceptical about the skate. I’ve never seen it on a menu before. I tried it and Wow. While it’s not something to try at home, Fluke made it interesting and tasty. The combination with seasonal veggies and sauce made it a memorable taste. But then I’m a guy who has had lion and antelope filet in the same meal. Fluke is a place you don’t want to miss in Newport!
We had a lovely dinner on a weekend Christmasy getaway to Newport. Fun, delicious cocktails and all of our food was wonderful. We enjoyed and highly recommend the duck empanaditas, the fire dancer cocktail, the skate with pastrami spices, angel hair with caviar — and the goat cheese cheese cake. Staff was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time
Menu consisted of some unique pairings of appetizers and entrees in small and large plate selections. While we both enjoyed our choices which amounted to a light food fare with drinks, we suggest a review of their menu online prior to making a reservation as their selections may not satisfy everyone. We will plan a return visit the next time we are in Newport!
I picked fluke due to the Trip Advisor reviews. This restaurant should be rated higher than what it is. The food is amazing and I am a food snob. We had a few appetizers, dinner and finished with dessert. Every mouthful was amazing. Definitely make this on your hit list.
I found this restaurant to be slightly overrated based on the cost vs. quality of the service and meals, not including the lack of friendliness of the staff. The food selections were ok, but for the price you would have expected more. They also tried to get cute when creating certain appetizer dishes and could have forgone the popcorn on the ceviche - not sure whose idea that was? Our waitress was ok but never felt she was truly engaged and present. The big disappointment was I came here with my wife for our anniversary, which was noted, but was never mentioned at anytime. We left the restaurant feeling disappointed and that are experience was less than satisfactory. I understand it was restaurant week, which I’m sure most restaurants hate, but we ate off the main menu and the perception was they were trying to move us in and out as fast as possible. Most likely would not recommend this place in the future.
I went with a friend for restaurant week. My meal was very good, my friend did not care for her appetizer or dessert. The biggest problem was that they significantly changed the published restaurant week menu, and we only picked Fluke because we both found things we were really excited to try. While my second choices were delicious, it was still disappointing. I will say that the portions were very generous, especially when compared to other pre-fixe menus and our server was absolutely wonderful.
I went with a friend to catch up and she was running a little behind schedule trying to park. While I waiting I spoke to the hostess who I believe might also be an owner, she was amazing even got us a special window table just because! The food was amazing we did the restaurant week menu however I've been here a couple times prior and always had good food as well.
Always enjoy Fluke! The food was excellent- as usual. We came to enjoy the restaurant week menu special prices. The beef cheeks pappardelle was excellent,( and different!!) as was my husband's fish dinner ( note- he always puts sauces on the side so flavors don't overwhelm the fish).
Dessert was fantastic too- with molten chocolate cake with salted carsmel gelato- yum!
Took my wife here for her birthday, and we can't wait to go back. She has a severe nut/peanut allergy, and the staff handled it incredibly well. We went during restaurant week so we got great value (three courses for $35) but we would definitely go back even outside that week. We thoroughly enjoyed our table on the second floor but the third floor bar is clearly the place to be, either at the bar or at one of the nearby tables. Highly recommend this place if you love seafood, although there is also animal protein on the menu, and they have plenty of vegetarian options as well.
We were pleased with the Restaurant Week menu that Fluke offered. I had the Fluke and it was a generous portion and perfectly cooked. Friends had the chicken and beef cheek pasta. Beef cheeks were ground up- so it was hard to tell what the meat was - but it was tasty.
Attentive service, creative seafood options ,delicious flavors. We ate upstairs where it was cozy and lively conversations. We had the ceviche trio fresh and creative flavors and the Tautog with Chimmechiri which was wonderful. Our daughter had the scallops with Asian flavors, very good.White table cloths and patterned cloth napkins and candle light.
Fluke has long been our favorite restaurant in Newport. I am a seafood lover and it’s seafood menu is the best. Truly a gourmet menu. Wonderful desserts. A lovely list of drinks and a wine list that is cultivated by the owner is Jeff and Geremy, Who, by the way are absolutely wonderful hosts. The view is spectacular especially near the windows, with a view over Newport Harbor and the colonial buildings below. Great for a romantic getaway, a place to take friends if they’re visiting, a place to go if you are visiting, just a great place. If you get the chance, go!
