My entree was the most expensive steak on the menu and I requested it to be well done. It was quite rare when I received it so I sent it back and they recooked it. I cut it open in the middle and it was well done; however, by the time I got to the end of the steak it was still rare. My husband requested his to be medium-well, and it came out rare.

Always a wonderful way to start the evening - Happy Hour and/or dinner at Newport Grill. Such a beautiful setting and plenty of outdoor seating too!

We went for the "Taste of Wichita" lunch that was a squash soup and a salmon blt. The sandwich and fries was wonderful but the soup was not heated well. We think because they were doing Sunday brunch they didn't expect an order for the special. Otherwise it was good and our server did a good job.

Overall, a great experience. One table near us had some very loud diners, but it wasn’t insurmountable. The young man who served use seemed really determined to make it a good experience for us. All of the food was delicious !

Ordered the scallops which were overly salty, then the risotto was undercooked with little to no cheese in it. For the price you’d expect them to cook risotto correctly.
Ambiance was very nice but I wouldn’t recommend.

Waiter started out rather surly then warmed up a little. Mgr was the same another time we were there. Not what we would expect as previous dining had been great.

We always get the feeling that we've come home. After several years of dining at Newport Grill, we know many of the staff. The service was perfect and so was the food.

We’ve dined at Newport before and were surprised that the food was not as good as they usually serve. The oysters were a disappointment and the tartare, which is usually exquisite, was over-sauced with beet extract. The ahi poke was the highlight of the meal: my husband said it was the best he has ever tasted. The server was very polite but was scarcely seen. If not for all the support from bar and food runners, we might not have been served at all. Overall, still one of the best places in Wichita to enjoy a fancy, albeit expensive, night out.

Very nice place. Our waitress was exceptional and very friendly. Unfortunately, the restaurant was out of calamari and oysters, which was very disappointing. Overall, it was still a nice dinner out.

Despite having a vegetarian menu, the vegan options were only ok. It was a busy Friday night and the service was not great either

This place is hit and miss. Food tasted burnt and over salted on a Sunday and the previous Thursday it was spot on.

Have had good and not so good experiences here. Easiest thing to fix? Train your wait staff better. Train them to care. Train them how to make the evening…instead of breaking it. We’re okay with anyone “in training” but ours was distracted, didn’t know the menu, brought the wrong drink and often let our water go empty. A meal that I often order was subpar this time. Greasy and just lacking. On a Friday night? Not to mention we got seated in a horrible table— and yes I made reservation days before. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants but I would not be able to bring friends or family to this restaurant knowing the meal and service are now in question.

Nice place for seafood in Wichita. The seafood is flown in 6 days a week which is probably why the price is above average. It was all good - I wish the portions were larger. I think I had 1 1/2 asparagus....for a Tuesday evening it was busy - make reservations!

Newport never fails to impress - the cocktails are always consistently the best in town, the food is spectacular, and the service is impeccable. We'll continue to come back here again and again every time we want a great dining experience.

We tried to order 4 different seafood menu items. They were out of all of them. On a Thursday evening at 7:30. They were out of lobster, halibut, mahi mahi and tuna. We ended up getting monk and swordfish. The food was so okay. Nothing special. By the time our food arrived, and we finished eating, still no alcohol drink that I ordered before dinner. Not worth the trip to ever go back.

Nice evening on the patio. An “expired” gift card was the only drawback. We misplaced it when it was received and it didn’t have any value left.

Newport Grill is becoming our favorite place for dinner in Wichita. By far this place is the best in terms of value, ambiance, service and quality of food. We had the scallops and the Ahi tuna and they were delicious and our desert bread pudding was amazing. We always get great service from our server Dan. We will be back soon!
