    The Spring House restaurant staff go to great measure to satisfy. As an extensively traveled foodie, I would recommend you not miss an opportunity to dine there wether a hotel guest or not. The steak I had was as good ( or better) than I have had anywhere on the planet and My wife's baked stuffed lobster was phenomenal. The wait staff were very, very helpful, professional and attentive, when needed. Simply fantastic. The F&B director, Frank Debiase III, went to great lengths to accommodate our requests happily and gracefully. This simply was the best anniversary dinner we've had in 31 years. If you are willing to pay a fair price in return for excellent quality on Block Island wether it be lunch, tapas or fine dinning, go here!

    Top of the price range for Block Island but worth it for the view and ambiance. The menu has a great deal of variety packed into a small number of selections. The dishes are excellently prepared and the plating is very good. Portions are reasonable but be prepared to spend top dollar for a full meal including drinks and wine. Arrive early and enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the deck before your dinner seeing.

    Couldn't have had a better stay on Block Island. The hotel is a gem of the island. Built in the mid 1800's. Our room was clean and functional, flat screen TV, private bath (shower). This is NOT a modern hotel, in fact, there really aren't any modern hotels on Block Island - so expect an old and grand staircase instead a elevators, ocean breezes not air conditioning. But that's the charm of staying here and Block Island. There are two reasons why we're returning; Hospitality - staff was very accommodating and gracious. (Notable were Dave, Christine, Adam, Jen and Alicia. The food; stuffed lobster was the best I ever had! The view - breath taking, located on a hill overlooking the ocean. Great sun spot to watch the sun rise. D/T CT

    Beautiful restaurant with a gorgeous view! Very romantic! Service was quick but they also weren't very busy. Although the menu wasn't very large, everything is uniquely prepared, amazingly fresh, and had phenomenal flavor! We had the best pork chop and scallops we've ever tasted! Creme brûlée and wine was excellent as well! Definitely recommend it!

  • what was the hostess thinking?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/1/2012
    We both ordered the sauteed tuna. While it was fresh, tender and rare (which we like), the flavoring of the dish was bland. There was only a small amount of sauce that covered only one of the slices of tuna. The accompaniments were okay but nothing to write home about. We would try the restaurant again however. The thing that amazed us was--what was the hostess thinking? It was a very windy night and she showed us to a table outdoors on the patio. When we commented about how windy and cold it was, she moved us to the other end of the porch. We sat there for a while and yes, it wasn't as windy but it was cold. We asked the waiter if we could move. We went into the dining room--very noisy, only half full but yes, warmer!

    Stunning view and the food was superb. 7 of us ate in the main dining room surrounded by windows. We sampled several appetizers and not a crumb was left. Everyone ordered different entrees (including one not on the menu)and all were perfectly presented from fettuccine to scallops to steak. I looked at the end of dinner and everyone's plate was clean( a day at the beach contributing no doubt). Service was attentive without being omnipresent allowing us a pleasant night of conversation. All in all, very nice. Would go back over all other BI restaurants we tried during our week (Harry's, Mohegan, Winfields).

    This is always a beautiful place to dine. But, after a large article in the Block Island Times emphasizing their farm to table approach, I was disappointed that the tomato in my appatizer was not from the farm but from a hot house. It was white on the inside and not ripe at all. There are plenty of resources on the island to insure local tomatoes, lettuce, etc. All we saw was fresh herbs. I would love to see them take the next step.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/15/2012
    The Spring House started this 2012 summer season with high ambitions - and they succeeded early on. I was shocked at how much the quality of the food had gone down on my last visit in late August - are they tired? have they given up trying to impress? My roasted chicken sandwich was pathetically overcooked and dry, and the rolls were either terribly made or stale. My dining companions were served a tenderloin sandwich that was equally overcooked, and looked as if it were just thrown on the plate with no regard for presentation. Sloppy and disappointing. But you can't beat the ambiance and views - I'll be back for that, and the friendly service. I'm hoping the 2013 season will deliver the same quality food as early 2012.

My wife and daughter had the salmon, and by the salting and peppering my sense was it could have used a bit more taste. Overall a nice experience. Will likely go back and the view is a MUST!

We were told to wait while a table was cleared. (We did arrive 10 minutes late) Location is very pretty, but all else was completely uninspired.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/20/2012
    My husband and I recently dined at Victoria's Parlor. The restaurant is beautiful with an unbelieveable view. We both had the Filet Oscar style. My complaint was that the meat was charred on the outside, and the flavor of the charring overpowered the crab and bearnaise sauce...which I think we're a bit bland anyway. The center of the filet was cooked to our liking (medium), but I just don't Ike the taste of blackened food, especially when the plate cost $41. I was disappointed with the preparation of my meal. We have dined here in the past, and I look forward to our meal at this restaurant each time we visit Block Island. We will go again, and I'll order something different next time!

    Our meal was outstanding. I believe this was partly due to our waiter Bobby who made great recommendations for us and was very knowledgeable about the ingredients in the specials we asked about. The food was wondeful and knowing about all of the fresh produce made it even more special. When we return will certainly ask for Bobby.

    We went to this restaurant because of the reviews we read online. Not only was the service great, but the food was excellent. When we originally looked at the menu online, I noticed there was a vegetarian plate on the menu. This is was very imporant to us as my wife is vegetarian. When we got to the restaurant, there was no vegatarian dish on the menu. As I explained my deliema to the waitress she totally understood and went back and spoke to the chef. She quickly came back and presented my wife with two offerings they could come up with. Not only was her dish excellent, but I was totally amazed on the presentation and the quality of my dish. I had ordered the fillet mignon.

    When checking into the hotel I checked with the front desk to see if we could get lobster on the patio as it was not on the menu. When we were sat it was another menu, and were asked to move (one guest had a cane) if we wanted the other one, and wait 20 minutes. We waited a little over an hour, and were only seated after checking in. When our meals came out, 8 of 9 them arrived, and my aunt was left without her dish. We were told they forgot to make it. The manager came over to check on us and was never informed that there was an issue at our table. A guest asked for a glass 3 times before obtaining one. Overall the experience was not good. We had a reservation for the next evening and canceled it. We had a much better experience next door.

    Limited "fine dining" options on Block Island; this was one of our choices, could not get through to the restaurant by phone and they did not return the message I left so made reservations online. When we arrived, we were informed that our reservation was for outside; nice water view but the patio ambiance was mediocre and it was a cool night which we were not prepared for. We did request inside seating but were told that it was all booked and they would only relocate us if it rained. The waiter was disinterested and several minor requests for menu changes could not be accomodated. The food was nothing special for the price. When we left the inside seating was less than 25% occupied which really irritated us. Will not go back.

    My family and I make the Spring House an annual tradition during our two vacation on Block Island. The patio affords the best view on the island. The service was very attentive, particular the bus crew. The entrees took some time, more than indicated in the updates provided by the waitress. The meal was very good, better even than those had previous years and the menu has been refreshed. Keep it up Spring House, we'll be back in 2012, 2013 and beyond.

    Food was very good and dining outside on the patio was fantastic, but the service was strange. First, our waiter appeared to have ADD. He would look away about every 10 seconds as we were speaking to the point where we had to stop talking and wait for him to refocus on taking our orders. Food came out all in the wrong order. My daughter got her dinner and chowder at the same time, approx. 20 minutes before any of our food came out. Then my salad came out, but my husband got his appetizer instead & no salad. Just when we figured the salad was forgotten, the salad came out just before his entree. No prices provided upfront on the specials, so it was a bit of a shock to find that the lobster special was $65! It was good, but sheesh!
