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

We didn't have a reservation but we were lucky to be seated by the window on busy Friday night. The restaurant is located on the 2nd and 3rd floor. the view at the window is so pretty at night. 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

Elegant yet subtle. Professional bartender. Hostess tried to squeeze us in at the end of the bar when there was plenty of room elsewhere. Drinks were good and the selection of spirits was superb.

We sat at the bar and enjoyed great food, fabulous wine, pretty view and a wonderful conversation with the bar-tender. We ordered from the small plate and the large plate menu - skipping the snacks & cheese and dessert. Wonderful Wellfleet Oysters, Grilled Vegetable Tart, Vegetable Farrotto & Fluke. This is not a Newport tourist establishment. Would definitely recommend and... More
