Typically we LOVE Newport Grill, so we were excited to finally try the Sunday brunch buffet for my moms birthday. Unfortunately, this time we were very disappointed. There was not one thing on the buffet that stood out except maybe the waffles were pretty good. The prime rib was dry, as well as most of the food on the buffet. The food was not labeled and honestly wasn't as large of a selection as I would have expected. We will stick to the menu items only from now on.

Staff needs to be more presentable (wrinkled shirt), the filet was tough, the portions were menial and it was very loud. I have waited years to try it and I won't be back. The experience did not justify the cost.

The service was outstanding. Sadie was our waitress and she was the perfect balance of friendly and professional. The chef accommodated our vegetarian diets and the food was delicious. We recommend the hummus starter! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Newport's ambiance is possibly the best in the Wichita restaurant scene. The service is always top-notch as well.

Very good food, waitress was awesome. Very noisy, our table was not ready when we arrived. (It was empty but not redecorated with candle, etc.) We had made reservations for our wedding anniversary. Found this place online for "romantic restaurants " it really wasn't. There was no separate seating from others to have an intimate dinner. I would still come back, but not for a special occasion such as an anniversary.

Our server helped us make good menu choices by answering our questions and communicating with the chefs to ensure that our meals were prepared with us in mind. The food was delicious and artfully presented. I highly recommend Newport Grill.

A night out with friends. Beautiful night to sit on the patio which allowed for comfort, quiet and a great view. Our waiter Dan was superb. He explained how the menu worked as no one had done before. Was alert and aware of our needs all evening. The food was excellent!!!! Bravo to the chef.

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.

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.

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.
