Very nice presentations with the menu being reasonably priced and varied. A little noisy but definitely a locals gathering spot!

What a find. Food was amazing! Honestly it was one of the best meals we've eaten in ages. Very reasonably priced for quality of food. I highly recommend it!

Enjoyed our dinner here recently. Great service, buzzy ambiance and very tasty meals with generous servings. I had the clam chowder and their coq au vin which was on of the best I've tried and together with one of their beers from their great selection and a bottle of fine red wine, we left very satisfied.

Undoubtedly the best food we ate whilst in Newport; fresh, innovative, piquant and attractively presented (I think.) Therein lies Melt's major issue - chef goes to huge lengths to develop, refine and produce dishes of which to be proud, only for them to be dished up in what can only be described as 'gloom'. There's atmospheric, mood lighting and there's... More

A friend recently moved to the neighborhood, so after helping him move some boxes, we walked the block to Malt. They have a really good draft beer and cocktail list. Since I was hot from moving boxes, I went with the martini special, cucumber watermelon. It was nice and refreshing. If you see it on the menu on a hot... More

Food is good but the restaurant is noisy. Coq au Vin was delicious as was my husband's steak. Very casual with a busy bar scene. Also well priced.

Broadway really is "where the locals eat". 2 of my top 3 restaurants in Newport are in this area and Malt is one of them. I love that it has 4 or 5 entrees that I would order any time. And the prices are a bargain compared to "downtown". Things to try are the gnocci, steak frites, and the duck.... More

There are a ton of places to go in Newport. High remarks for food here, but if I was only coming here for a few days, no need to go here. My salmon was cooked perfectly, but took 45 minutes, and the atmosphere was dismal - I guess we went on a slow night. Chef is good though.
