  • "Fabulous dining choice for restaurant week. My group and I felt that we were treated with the utmost service. The ambiance was typical Newport with sweeping views of the Newport Bridge and Jamestown. The setting is off the beaten path of the traditional downtown Newport scene. In making the reservation, I let the restaurant know about my gluten allergy. They went above and beyond to accommodate me without singling me out in the service."

  • "Ordered the 3 course pairing, rabbit, filet and desert. Expensive but worth every penny, my wife orded the restaurant week special also very good. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine pairings and all the entrees. Certainly plan to go back on my next trip to Newport. "

He checked with us frequently and offered additional bread. The assistant server was always there to refill our water glasses. The food was outstanding as always. We had a wonderful view of the sunset. We left pampered and satisfied."

  • "We have been wanting to experience Castle Hill for a while now and Restaurant Week for lunch during a perfect sunny day in April provided the best time to enjoy the fabulous food and view of Narragansett Bay from the best table for two at Castle Hill. The staff was very gracious in accomodating our reservation request for this table while we waited a very short time in the adjacent bar with an equally beautiful view. The three course lunch was delicious. The service was exceptional in its attentiveness and friendliness. Our waitress, especially was extremely helpful, conversant and gracious. Can't wait to come back and enjoy another wonderful luncheon day on the lawn or romantic evening!"

  • "The Castle Hill Inn is truly a spectacular venue...especially on a beautiful spring day! Normally its way too pricey yet my fiance & I took advantage and made a reservation for lunch during Newport Restaurant Week. For a 3-course prix fixe lunch with incredible selections, an oceanside table with a million dollar view at $16/person is a deal of the century! No words can describe the luxurious ambiance and top notch service. From beginning to end...we did not feel rushed and encouraged to savor our meal and the view of the ocean. Our meals were wonderfully prepared. I'm totally hooked on the PEI steamed mussels! Guests are encouraged to relax outdoors on their magnificent lawn and adirondack chairs. Looking forward to returning someday."

  • "Does it get any better to have a view of the East Passage on a beautiful day? Yes it does; if the food is as outstanding as the view. The Inn at Castle Hill made lunch a dining experience. The salmon, mussels and clam chowder were divine. The dessert of rhubarb sorbet was light and the perfect finish to an excellent meal."

  • "Lovely venue. I enjoyed a cocktail outside overlooking Easton's Beach while waiting for a friend. Ample specialty cocktail menu. Bar service, fast and friendly. The food presentation was excellent. Courses were served with expert timing to allow for an enjoyable meal and the overall experience was grand. Was fortunate enough to have a view directly into the working kitchen. What fun! Food quality was very good. Nothing was overpowering. The big surprise for me was the citrus panna cotta, which was Exceptional! My two friends seemed to enjoy their meal as well."

  • "A few if my girlfriends and I went to restaurant week lunch at castle hill inn. The place was beautiful and the view is amazing! The service was lovely. The menus was good but a but frustrating as they had several options that required you to pay more on the R.W. Menu. I would go back if not to just see the amazing view."

  • "As a Newport County local, I consider Castle Hill Inn one of the premier, iconic destinations in Newport, with a reputation for service and exceptional food, sourced locally & prepared by top chefs. This week I learned first hand how they've earned that reputation. The staff was warm and welcoming as we stepped into the beautiful surroundings of this inn, which are elegant and tastefully decorated. Our waiter could not have been more cordial - he was friendly & informative throughout the evening. We all decided on Newport Restaurant Week specials - our food was delicious & presented beautifully. This week, we were celebrating a special occasion, and I'm glad we chose Castle Hill. I look forward to returning again in the summer."

  • "We have been to this restaurant twice now and it was fantastic both times. The second time, I choose this amazingly romantic venue as the location for my proposal to my fiancé. The view at sunset was memorable, the service by Brian was impeccable and the food was perfect. The ambiance was perfect so much so that these two nice couples who witnessed the proposal bought out first round of drinks for us. We plan on making this restaurant our one place we make it to every year even if we are too busy for a vacation to Newport."

  • "Castle Hill Inn is in a great location with awesome views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge. We went during restaurant week, so the the menu selection was limited. Having said that, the portions were really small and the food was okay. I would have been really unhappy if I was paying full price from the normal menu with those portions as this is a really expensive restaurant. But, the service was outstanding and the ambiance was great for a romantic dinner."

  • "The place is gorgeous. Unfortunately we weren't seated in the main dining room with the beautiful views of the ocean but in a side room overlooking the plastic on the patio. We went for their Sunday brunch and really weren't impressed with the food. They were very nice in accommodating my husbands request for eggs and bacon and I chose something out of my comfort zone on the limited menu and wished I hadn't. I did check the menu on line but apparently the day we were there they changed it. I'd like to go back fir lunch or dinner and request a table in the main room but won't do the brunch again"
