We had a reservation at 7 and by time we left the restaurant it was after 9:30. It took over an hour to get our food. Whereas our server was very (maybe even too much) attentive in explaining how a party and a 10 and 5 top can back up the kitchen and how a 2 top gets lost in the shuffle sometimes was not what any diner wants to hear. The Manager on duty came to apologize and offered a free birthday dessert for our inconvenience. No one cares about an $8 dessert of a $150 dinner bill and almost 3 hours of annoyance. In addition, there was a female manager working the dining room in see through work out pants- and a sleeveless tank top, etc. she looked like she had just spent 2 hours at the gym then came in to work. I understand as a retail manager for over 20 years coming in to work sometimes in plain clothes to do an order or inventory but at no time should she be running food and interacting with guests. I watched her walk by 6 servers standing around talking to run food to the table beside us and I just couldn’t understand why that is the person as the face of your fine dining establishment, out of dress code and looking embarrassing. This was my guests first time as your location and he was less than impressed as was I. I choose to come to Newport to entertain because of the atmosphere and food but I will not choose you again because I no longer feel that Newport is representing their brand as they should.

This is usually our "go-to" for fine dining. Unfortunately it didn't hit the mark this time. Our waiter was rude, did not educate his customers how the buffet works on Sundays. Suppose to have prime rib, no carver was at their station and server didn't tell us about it until after we finished our meal. We go twice a year...our anniversary and Mother's Day. Sad to say....they missed the mark this year.

We attended Mother’s Day brunch. It was outstanding. It’s on the spendy side, but worth every penny.

A great experience for our Anniversary. We were pressed for time between to event reservations so our server helped speed things up with the meals. We were very pleased with the food and how everything was set up. We had a great view of the water and we were treated great by staff.
A memorable time that I would recommend to anyone celebrating a special day.

Had a lunch meeting and was so impressed with taste and quality of order just had to go back.
Evening meal was just as good or better. Very impressed with freshness and variety of the seafood. Can't say enough good about the Rock Shrimp Cigares. Definitely need to try them.
All was just excellent.

As always a great food and experience. Love this place for the freshest fish in Wichita, the knowledge wait staff, and the ambience looking over the lake. Came during Hawaii week and had the Mahi Mahi, swordfish , and Octopus.

Your new baby Kale you have started using on the Kale salad is not near as good as the old that was on the Tuscan Kale Salad and this was our second trip that our Tuna was seriously over cooked. ( Mentioned it last time and they said "OH sorry , can we do anything for you"???? it was inedible. We ordered the New Sparkling wine on the wine list that replaced Bouvet and it was not available, neither was the Bouvet. Our Friends ordered a new chardonnay also not available. We will keep trying ......

My wife and I met friends at the Newport for our anniversary supper. We had eaten at Newport last new years eve and had a great experience overall.

I wish I could say the same for this dinner occasion.

The good:
The service was very good and all of the staff was friendly. The appetizer of shrimp cocktail was excellent. The dessert was also very delicious.

The bad:
Going around the table of four, three of us were very disappointed in the food. A friend ordered the Mediterranean fish. The fish was small portion sized and very over cooked. My wife and I had the fillets. She ordered hers medium well, it was basically raw. I ordered mine medium Pittsburgh style and it too was raw and not cooked Pittsburg style. The string green beans that came with the meal were very tough and stringy. I made reservations on the website and ordered flowers that did not show up. We did get a free dessert though.

At a total bill of over $150 including tip, I was very disappointed.

Everything was perfect except the "Chef's Special". It was not up to the Newport excellent standard. The pork was mostly fat and there were only two scallops. The Newport is an excellent restaurant, we have eaten there often. My wife and son's fillets were perfect as usual. The appetizer was excellent as were the cocktails. The service is impeccable.

Our server was knowledgeable of the menu and very personable. My friend ordered shrimp and grits. She felt the shrimp was excellent but the grits were just ok. I had salmon with ravioli. It as good but not great. It was my friend’s 70th birthday, and there was a nice note on the table for her. However, I was surprised that there wasn’t a complimentary dessert. It was a pleasurable experience with nice ambiance but seemed incomplete without the anticipated dessert that usually occurs in a place this upscale

The personal greeting by the cheerful and knowledgeable staff, incredible fresh seafood choices, great view, and trendy ambience all made for a fantastic anniversary dinner.

The swordfish was excellent and the service was exceptional. Romantic dim lighting and quiet inside. In the spring and summer they have live music outside on the waterfront where you can also dine. Overall a very nice place for anniversaries or special occasions or if you have some extra you want to spend.

Newport Grill was a beautiful place to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. We were presented with a lovely handwritten card, and seated next to a window overlooking the lake. We loved both appetizers; the Poke’ and the Shrimp Cigares. The Mahi Mahi was full of flavor and delicious! We topped off the meal with the banana bread pudding and the bittersweet baguettes. Alicia, our server, was very knowledgeable of the food and took time to explain each dish. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely return. Thank you for making our evening a special experience.
