Good menu selections, food preparation and wonderful service all with its own history during Newport's Gilded Age.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the feel of this placeI loved the feel of this place - beautiful architecture be sure to look at the ceiling. I definitely plan to return to try more dishes. The Scrod was delicious and I am very fussy about schrod! The Pork shank fell off the bone and was very flavor able.
We were there when they offered 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for $35.00. There were many entrées to choose from and the size of the plates were more than enough..... we added one salad and one dessert and had a perfect night out.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. High quality food.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the 2 dinners with theLoved the 2 dinners with the bottle of wine for $39.

We went to Newport, which we do frequently, and wanted to try it. Luckily we went during restaurant week (3 course $35) such a deal. We expected it to be run of the mill and were quite surprised to be COMPLETELY IMPRESSED. The Beef Wellington and Duck were excellent. Our favorite was the Baked Brie. Our server Denise was attentive and gave us time to enjoy our wine and meal. We definately would recommend this and will go back.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Restaurant WeekWe had the Restaurant Week menu. The food and service were outstanding.

The restaurant is in a beautiful "Newport"-style house. The crowd was mostly couples and older locals (at 30 and 26, my date and I were the youngest people there on a Saturday night), so the noise level was quiet and respectful -- a HUGE plus. Food was delicious and the prices were excellent for the quality. I had the seared scallops that were cooked perfectly with a wonderful lentil and bacon side and the poached pear salad. Wine list was amazing with the most expensive glass $10, but with excellent selections. It is March and snow is still on the ground, but the outdoor seating area looks like an absolute blast for the summer. If you're in Newport, give the place a try; you won't be disappointed.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTHIS is the best meal in Newport!I am a food snob; I have spent many dollars dining at the 'best places in Newport' over the years. This was our 1st visit to Canfield House, & we were BLOWN AWAY. By far, the most reasonably priced dinner in Newport. The location was lovely... not as fancy as some others but warm & inviting nonetheless. The place appeared family-run; the service was friendly, efficient, even entertaining. What a joy! The duck was AMAZING; succulent & prepared perfectly. My hubby thought the seafood stew was the best he had ever had. To top it off, they allowed us to bring our own wine & only charged minimal corkage. Can not wait to return! And can not recommend it highly enough.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
