Truly love this restaurant. Came up to Newport for a weekend getaway with my guy and had the best dinner at Fluke. The staff is incredibly friendly and you easily feel at home. The food s simply outstanding. We had tried so many seafood restaurants in Cape Cod, Provincetown and elsewhere, and I must admit Fluke prepared the best seafood... More

On our last visit we tried to eat here an needed reservations. This time we were prepared and what a great experience. The whole experience was top notch. The wait staff, food runners and buss staff were all professional and engaging. The ambience was Newport, wood and minimalist but classy. With a great supporting cast, the food was the star....

We visited this restaurant during a birthday celebration weekend. We were not disappointed and cannot wait to return. I had the Monkfish and my wife had the Fluke and both dishes were excellent!! Wonderful crisp, clean flavorful fish dishes. We also had cocktails and dessert which did not disappoint.

Fluke is run by a husband and wife team who know how to create interesting, expertly prepared food served in a contemporary yet romantic setting. The menu selections include some expected choices for the area but many more creative and interesting options if you are more adventurous in dining. I am not a vegetarian but I was intrigued by the... More

Romantic ambiance. With my pregnancy I usually order sparking water but they have mocktails!!! and they were only $5 and tasted... More

We love Fluke and return again and again. Each small plate, salad, entree and dessert is carefully prepared and flavorful. The signature cocktails are refreshing and tasty as well. The owners and staff really cater to their patrons making the dining experience extremely enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Newport has a million great restaurants but this is my favorite. The food is all spectacular and the drinks are made with freshly squeezed lime and fresh herbs.

Fluke is me and my husband's favorite spot to visit when we are in Newport. I recommend for foodies, and make reservations in advance to avoid a wait. Recommend requesting a table on teh top floor. If you're going with a larger group (like 6) request the table in the corner.

Great ambience, drink selection and delicious and creative food, in a setting overlooking Bannister Wharf. We went during Restaurant Week and stayed with that menu, but left feeling very well satisifed--they did not cut corners.

We had one night in Newport and chose to dine at Fluke based on the great reviews. We booked earlier in the day and so glad we did as it was packed. We were put at a table on the top floor next to the cocktail bar, with a nice view across the harbor. We both opted for the Skate... More
