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.
Excellent food and service as always. Drinks are always good as well!
We always enjoying dining at Newport. They do a very great job at their level of service, being friendly and the food is amazing too
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.
This place is always a sure thing! From the bread to the cocktails the seafood and dessert. It was all delicious. My scallops were cooked perfect and my friend’s steak was delicious. Our waitress was great. It was an all around great experience!
Fantastic food/drink options and the service was great! Enjoyed the live music as well.
Always a reliable place for a memorable evening. Service is impeccable and food is delicious!
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.
My main complaint was the sticky finish on table..raw wood was exposed..Very Unattractive and Gross!!
If you are Wichita's Finest..I feel sorry for Wichita!! At Very least cover it with a cloth!! Obviously lack of maintenance...
Great staff and experience. We really loved the food, they crafted the lobster perfectly and swordfish was just right.
Alica did an outstanding job. Helped us with both our wine selection and dinner selection.
Meal was good. Service a bit spotty. But we had a good experience with great friends.
Nice size lobster tail. Salmon was excellent.
The food was outstanding along with impeccable service and attention to detail. It was out of my price range but glad I had a quite substantial gift card to use for the final bill.
Loved it but it is loud.
It was a great evening. Came in from El Paso, Texas to have dinner.
Cool atmosphere, friendly service, good food
We love Newport Grill. The food is exceptional, fresh seafood and a great steak. We are always well taken care of and made to feel welcome. The staff is very attentive without being intrusive. We highly recommend it to our friends.
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.
Katrina was awesome!!!
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 ......
A Special Place of Special Occasions.
Quite both in sound and ambiance.
Attention to detail at every turn.
I’ve been coming to NG for about 10 years and have never had a bad meal. The service is friendly, not pushy, and food is served in a timely manner.
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 service was very good and all of the staff was friendly. The appetizer of shrimp cocktail was excellent. The dessert was also very delicious.
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
First time visit for us. We were celebrating our anniversary and the experience was fabulous. 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. Thank you for the care that you extended toward us. We look forward to joining you again.
Service was wonderful, atmosphere was excellent, food was only okay and very overpriced. Stay away from the ceviche. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.
I don't recall our waiters named but he mentioned he was originally from Tribune, KS. Very good, deserved a pat on the back from Management.
First visit. Very friendly waiter, who seemed to disappear whenever water or coffee was needed. Issue with the bill (i.e., web site lists one price, we were charged about 15% higher) was resolved quickly. Ask for a booth by the windows!
Always a pleasant experience with good food and great service.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Superior service from the time we walked in the door. Food was very good, with pleasing presentation. Nice ambiance. Had a table with view of the lake/pond.
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.
We come here often and we always have a wonderful time
Phenomenal food and service.
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.
Took my wife out for dinner for her birthday. It was very nice and service was great as per usual. We had a great time.
