This would be the perfect fine dining experience if there were just acoustic materials in the ceiling to absorb the sound - during peak hours, it is very hard to have conversations over the noise level.

Still...our favorite Wichita restaurant.

Splendid service. The filet was the best I’ve had in a while. Cooked medium-rare, just the way it deserves to be. Great ambience and they usually have live music on the weekends near the patio.

Noise is somewhat loud as the area is open. Ahi Is not sushi grade which is a bit of a disappointed for a place this nice and in this price point. Talked to a regular while leaving and they said Happy Hour menu is great deal.

Terrible Experience! Dining room was packed with booths on each side and tables close together in the middle. We had to literally shout to each other to be heard. It was the noisiest atmosphere I have ever experienced. I ordered a dozen raw oysters for $32. They were each no larger than a quarter. My wife had fish which was bland. My clam chowder was the consistency of mashed potatoes and had little flavor. This is not a fine dining establishment! We will never return.

Service at Newport is outstanding! Management has that under control. However it is so loud that you cannot have a conversation without raising your voice at a table of 4. Not an atmosphere for an anniversary. Food was very good - but menu has not changed in at least 3 years.

I brought my wife, brother, his wife to this fine establishment. From drinks to appetizers to main course to dessert, was a gastronomic delight. Truly one of the best meals I have had in recent memory. The waitstaff are very attentive and did not rush our event.

On a side note my phone departed my pocket while sitting at the table. My phone is tied to my Defribulator which is monitored at KUMC. My phone had slipped between the seat and the wall. Unfortunately it was busy and we could not find it at first. Later that evening, about 1100, the manager Andrew Malcom took the initiative and removed the table and bench and retrieved my phone. Although he did not know that this was more than a phone to me he helped out what could have been a very problematic situation. I picked up my phone the next morning from a very understanding staff. Thanks again.

Excellent food! We were shown to our seat right when we arrived. Our server did an wonderful job, gave great selection advice and was personable. Made sure we had everything we needed with out hovering. We had oysters and the beef tartar to start, with fish entrees and then crème Brule and bread pudding to finish. Nothing disappointed!

This was our first visit. Loved our server, Maddy! She was friendly & attentive. The food was AMAZING! Steak & swordfish prepared perfectly. Delicious desserts. It was a bit noisy on a busy Saturday evening, but that’s fine. The only real negative was how close the table were. I would have loved a little more privacy and with COVID, it was a little off putting to be so close.

We had the crab cakes, they were cold. The caesar salad I had was good. I had the swordfish it was ok, a tiny bit undercooked. My wife had the filet with lump crab, it was a very good steak, also a little undercooked for her liking. It just wasn't what we expected for a meal over $200. Just average

Ordered ribeye medium+ and it came medium rare. After waiting 10 minutes to find our waiter, he took it back to the kitchen and cooked the same steak and it came back medium well. A $45 steak should be cooked correctly and if not, you never throw it back on the grill. You get a new steak. Our waiter never asked if the 2nd time was correct. We were charged full price and never received any other apology or mention about the steak. Took 30 minutes to get our check at the end of the night.

Our waitress was so helpful and her knowledgeable of wines and what to pair with our meals was fantastic. The only complaint I could muster up is the noise level... however that’s how you know a restaurant is good, when it’s packed!
