We tried 3 different small plates. The fluke ceviche was perfect, the fois gras ravioli not only delicious but completely different. And the crab cakes were above par. We finished up with espressos and a passion fruit creme brule. Were it not for the, at times, very loud general noise, I would put the evening as perfect. (There were several very loud, obviously imbibed tables of people near us, not the restaurant's fault) the service was good, as is the location. I will definitely return.
Fluke is great
Outstanding place. Restaurant Week menu was the best I found. Wide and wonderful selection with fish the focus. Loved it and would retur. Is we were in Newport.
Outstanding birthday dinner!!!!!!
I took my boyfriend to Fluke for his birthday dinner. Lucky us..... We were able to eat at one of our favorite restaurants during Newport restaurant week. As always.... We were thrilled to death with the hospitality we experienced, the service we received and the delicious food we ate. Their restaurant week menu was extensive including some of my favorites as well as a few new items. All amazing!!!!!! To make our evening at Fluke even more special, we had a celebrity sighting. Perfect evening - as always!!!!!!

Beautiful ambiance, great service and flavorful dishes. Nice view beautiful plates. Two thumbs up!
Fabulous as Always
The owners and all staff at Fluke make your dining experience personal and enjoyable each time you go there. Thank you!
Restaurant Week SCORE!
We experienced this restaurant after finding it on Restaurant week and were so lucky. All four of us truly loved every course of the meal. I am still dreaming about their pork belly and it's been two weeks already!
We went for restaurant week, accidentally. Despite this, we had the high quality experience we've come to expect.
Fantastic dinner at Fluke!
We had a tremendous meal at Fluke. Everything we ordered was superb, the waitress and owners were very warm and kind, and we had an exceedingly comfortable evening. Thanks to all!!
Excellent as always!
We frequent this restaurant at least once a month for dinner and drinks at the 3rd floor bar. Excellent spot, great food and great service!

The owners and staff are terrific. The food is top notch. And it's one of the most beautiful settings in Newport. Well they have many different dishes, seafood is my choice, and this is THE best seafood restaurant in the area. And an extremely romantic place as well. The owners will make you feel welcome. And by the way, in the off-season, they have bistro nights, where you can get a bistro dinner of either steak, skate, or vegetarian cassoulet with frites for $15

Old school Naval/alley/dockside hideout with phenomenal service/staff/bartenders. The food was extremely fresh, I'd be there every weekend if I could. Highly recommended. Flawless service & cocktails. (Do yourself a favor & start out with a few Small Plates)
Another great dinner at Fluke Wine Bar!
We treated our son and his fiancée to a lovely dinner at Fluke. Food and service were great. One of our favorite restaurants. Geremie and Jeff do a fantastic job!

Great food with a very dynamic menu and attentive waitstaff. Servers are very enthusiastic about the food and love to make suggestions. Went as a single and didn't feel rushed. Would love to return soon.
Perfect Start to a Weekend in Newport
We chose Fluke on a whim, deciding to head to Newport a day early. We arrived on time and even though our table by the window wasn't ready, Jeff offered us a less scenic table or to bring us to the bar. We chose the bar, which is upstairs, and the bartender was fabulous! I asked a question about a cocktail and he took the time to not only explain a little about it and ensure I would like it based on my tastes, but also some history too! Must try if you are a martini fan, The Vesper! My fiancé got the Bourbon Manhattan and we agreed both were the best drinks all weekend! Geremie helped us to our table and she was so very sweet! We started with the Shrimp Wontons (my favorite thing I ate all weekend) and Mushroom Tart! Both were delicious and very light, which is hard with these types of dishes. My fiancé had the skirt steak and it was very tender and had great flavor. I had the chicken with homemade ricotta gnocchi! The gnocchi were perfection, airy and pillow on the inside and a little crisp on the outside! We finished the meal with banana bread pudding, warm and decadent without being over the top! From start to finish, this was an amazing experience! Not only was the food incredible and fresh, but the service was impeccable! We can't wait to return next time we are in town!!
This is amazing! The bacon wrapped dates are to die for! The lamb and scallops were also amazing! The drinks are delicious too!

It's our favorite place in Newport. The food is wonderful – the seafood especially, but also the other dishes as well. The staff and owners are terrific. It's our first choice of places to go.
A small restaurant with big flavors!
Fluke is a small restaurant on Bowen's Wharf in Newport. I have passed this establishment many times in Newport, but never saw the sign. So glad we spent Valentines Day there. Upon arriving we were warmly greeted by one of the owners, shown to our table where we met our server who was just as warm and friendly. The food was very good. Of course, we stated with the delicious almond-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. My husband had the beet salad, and I had the lobster bisque...both very good. We had an incredible bottle of red wine, and two lovely entrees followed by a decadent bread pudding dessert! My only disappointment was that they served a little too quickly...we wanted to dine, not just eat...so when we explained our concern our server, we were told she would wait to put our entrees in when we told her we were ready! Perfect! It was so nice that Jeffrey, the other co-owner, walked around to all the tables to make sure everyone was enjoying their dining experiences, as his wife did also! They were such a nice couple! We will definitely be back!

Tapas style apps are a feature. Our group ordered one every small plate on the menu. The Fois Gras dumplings were epic! The local mushroom soup with truffle oil was decadent. Lovely sunset view from third level (there are a few tables up there...one large nook for up to 8 people, and a bar).

We went for a Valentine's Day dinner and were very impressed. From the second we got there the wait staff was very friendly and provided us with amazing service! I would definitely recommend Fluke to my friends and return in the future!
Always a great pick!
As always, Fluke did not disappoint! The food was delicious, the drinks were great and the service was top notch!

We came hear for an early New Year's Eve dinner with our sleeping toddler. The restaurant staff was very accommodating and friendly towards our son and when he awoke, was very gracious about meeting his needs. The food was very good - we had the butternut squash soup special and the lobster bisque, both yummy, and for entrees, the steak and the scallop dish. I loved the scallop dish (though asked them to hold the eggplant) - it was delicious. My husband thought the steak was good, too. Overall, we would definitely return when in Newport.

Great selection of really unique small plates. The owners seem to always be on premises so the staff seems always to be on their game. Great food. Great lively atmosphere yet still very cozy!
Fabulous dinner...everything we ate was fabulous. Service was great, drinks and dessert were great! We will certainly be back!
The Customer Service at Fluke is Amazing! The Owners themselves make sure that their customers are happy. It is wonderful to feel so special when dining at a Newport Restaraunt and not feel like just “anyone”. Thank you so much for a Great Dining Experience!
The best in town
My wife and I have been to Flukes three times now during our three visits to Newport and consider this the best restaurant in town and perhaps one of the best we have ever dined in!! The service was impeccable, appetizer delicious and the entree, fluke, which we both had, was outstanding. I could not recommend this restaurant more highly!
Great meal out - comfortable setting
Food was excellent and despite an overcooked situation, the owner immediately took it back and made a new one. Lots of variety on the menu with small pates for sharing if you want to try a few different meals. Good service and great atmosphere. Also can't beat the location on Bowen's Wharf near many shops.

Pleasant and cheerful atmosphere. Unusual menu - delicious items with nice presentation
Great place to celebrate!
We went to Fluke for our wedding anniversary last weekend, and it was beyond our expectations. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great anniversary, and the food was to die for! Will definitely be returning!

dinner with 21 year old daughter and wife. our wine was ok. bottle of merlot. food was good to very good. we were next to a very loud table and the acoustics made our conversation difficult. overall good experience.
Friendly and good food
Our experience here was good. friendly staff and good food. As it is in the middle of the tourist area of Newport , we wondered if it would be just 'another average restaurant' but I would say we were very satisfied with our experience there.

Our group has dined at Fluke four times now and I have dined with others three more times. I have enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service each time. The restaurant has accommodated our group of eight to ten and my other dining experiences as a couple effortlessly. I look forward to dining at Fluke again and again.
Excellent service, great small dishes
If looking for great tapas, Fluke is a must try. The service was excellent from the moment we stepped foot inside. Our waitress Danielle was very attentive and had lots of recommendations. Jeff was also outstanding and very personable, he helped us choose a wine and even gave us samples before we decided on a bottle. As for the food, we went for the bacon wrapped dates, garlic shrimp and ravioli - and shared the duck as a main course. We enjoyed the small plates a bit more than the duck but overall everything was great!
Great Food - Ok Service - LOUD
Wife and I went to dinner. We had a great meal. Loved it. The service was a little slow at first - to be fair they were very busy. Menu was great - the food tasted great. The place was a little LOUD. There was a table behind us with a guy who was very loud and wouldn't shut up! Turned a perfect night into an A-. I would definitely recommend you try it and we would surly return.

The price of the food was not indicative of the quality. The service was average at best, I shouldn't have to request my water glass be refilled.
The view from top floor was beautiful. It overlooked the harbor of Newport. The food was delicious and appealing. Great time!
Fluke was a fluke
Enjoyed my crispy oyster starter but lobster gnocchi was not very good The gnocchi tasted like it was out of a box. The poor service probably contributed to a less than favorable overall impression
