Diner Reviews
  • "It was July 5th so I expected a crowd- which there was - to see fireworks - However when I am paying 40+ for a dinner entrée there should be a way to keep the crowds away from my table and allow me the view. The service was slow- and the steaks were not cooked properly. They redid a steak and adjusted the bill. I would not go back for dinner."

  • "Save your money and eat somewhere else, then get drinks here for the view and ambience. The good is mediocre at best, definitely not worth the money. The service is harried, though our waitress felt bad about how long it took for our food to come out, so she comped a beer."

  • "Service was terrible. Waited about 30 minutes just to get our first drinks. They didn't warn us of a wedding that had a live band that was playing right across from us which made it impossible to talk. And they put the kids table in the main dinning room too. The manager was completely inappropriate in her comments to us when she came to check in and in the way she was engaging with the patrons."

  • "The food was absolutely outstanding, the best we have had in Newport! The outdoor seating and view was spectacular! The service unfortunately was terrible!!!! There was no excuse for the poor service seeing it was a Monday evening and it was not at all busy. The poor service took away from the " fine dining" experience."

  • "Great setting...would be perfect if the music wasn't so loud.. They need to decide if they are a bar or restaurant. Finding the hostess location was a challenge. Once we did one hostess was very friendly confused. An other walked around didn't greet or help. waiter called us "guys" g and asked "how are stuff was". We were two people and yet the runner got the location of our plates wrong...she kept asking who got what. The food was good although my veal chop was not pink but rather it was raw. A gentleman was walking around, thought perhaps he was watching the very green staff but he was more interested in cleaning the table of dirty plates. So good food but they need to learn how to operate a restaurant. Expensive and unprofessional"

  • "A beautiful semi-outdoor dining experience. The waitstaff was incredibly accommodating and also knowledgeable about the wine list. For appetizers we split the cold half lobster and the crab cake. The latter was really delicious. I am not a huge lobster fan, but the lobster was tasty enough. For our entree we split the Wagyu beef, ordered medium, which when I last checked is a nice pink center. It was very well done, and actually crispy on one side, defeating he purpose of selecting a meat that is well marbled. We have nice meals out about twice a month. I would not my return list given the rather high end prices for food that I am not sure deserves the price tag."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here 2 years ago and had a great experience, went back over the weekend and had a horrific experience, all wrapped extremely poor service. The hostess was in a state of confusion, when she finally sat us it took forever to get a server to come over. Tables were seated after us and had bread immediately, we had to ask. The appetizers came and we had to flag someone down to get fresh pepper. Our entrees arrived, again no one came by to offer pepper. We began to eat and my poached cod was ice cold in the center. I waited for our server to come by to see if we had what we needed when she finally appeared I asked for dinner to be removed from bill as my husband had finished. Much better places in Newport."

  • "I was completely dissapointed by my experience at Forty1 North. We made a reservation for 5oclock for two and were seated at the most undesirable table with no one else in the resteraunt. It took awhile for the waiter to even greet us and very rude and condescending to us. We both ordered their speciality margarita for $15 that was so spicy with jalepeno seeds floating throughout the drink and a brown lime garnish. It was in drinkable but our waiter was no where to be found to send back the drinks. We ordered two starters the king crab legs and a lobster salad. Both were decent but different from their menu description. We decided not to order any other dishes in dear of further dissapointment."

  • "I never review restaurants, but I had to say something about our experience here. We were made to pay $20 to park for lunch which was not disclosed to us when I made the reservation, which made me feel very cheated. A cab from my house to the Grill would have been cheaper. We were greeted by a very, very drunk woman who was our server. It was 11 AM and she was wearing high, high heels and a see through shirt. She clearly had not been home from the night before (it was Saturday morning) and she was being so loud and smelled very much of alcohol. It made us so uncomfortable. In addition, we had about 4 different waitresses, so we need knew who to ask for what. Get it together, Grill at 41 North. The food isn't bad and the view is beautiful"

  • "Nearly sitting on a dock, the view is amazing and food was delicious. Service, on the other hand, for the price of restaurant was atrocious. I am hoping the restaurant has new staff for the season, and they are still learning the ropes. Five people ordered drinks, I asked for another minute. When the waitress returned with drinks, I ordered my drink and the waitress' response was, "Do you want that now?" She also spilled a martini on me and looked away. We ordered calamari appetizer (phenomenal), but we did not get appetizer plates. They served two salads (ordered as meals) alone and had not put in the other orders. While the service was chaotic, the view and food made up for the event."

  • "Have been here several times for dinner, and the food and service were impeccable! Had lunch recently, and the food was excellent, but the service awful. Drinks took 20 minutes, our food order came out in spursts ( not everyone was served at the same time) and when we were done dining, we split our check 3 ways ( 3 couples) and it took over 20 minutes for the wait staff to divide $158.00 by 3 ( answer $52.66/ couple). Hesitant to return, which is unfortunate! Maybe it was a bad day??"

  • "The restaurants aims to be high end and expensive. Brought wrong meals to table (only 3 other parties dining at that time). Had an omelette for brunch and eggs were still raw in the middle. Would never eat here again! Would consider a drink on the patio for the view only. "

  • "Why is this place so fantastic and so mediocre on food? On the menu, the items sound great, but here's a few problems: 1. Why is there no talented concoction? 2/ Why is there no spice? (See Castle Hill Menu) 3. Why are there no greens? Brussels sprouts? 4. Please consult me for alternative suggestions....."

  • "I have eaten at The Grill a few times. It is consistent in the quality of the food and superb service. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and a special guest. The Colorado Rack of Lamb melted in your mouth. It was the ultimate dining experience in every way. "

  • "Slow slow slow and confused on orders... For Mother's Day you think they would be on. It wasn't even busy for brunch and the waitress couldn't handle the tables ...4 tables... I was a waitress in a high pace restaurant and served 6-8 at one time. And they has trouble confirming meals that had allergy restrictions!! Could be a deathly mistake!!! Plus she over changed us...$36 for 4 coffees .... Make sure to look over your check. "

  • "The food itself was wonderful. The atmosphere was incredible. Unfortunately the service was extremely lacking. When ordering a 30 dollar steak, you expect your wine not to arrive when you're 3/4 done. Also, our server had a cold-no biggie, except he was loudly blowing his nose then handling silver wear, plates and drinks in view of the entire dining area without sanitizer or handwashing. AWFUL. I had to ask for everything - silverware was taken between courses and i had to ask for replacements & glasses were empty until we asked. Again, understandable if the restaurant is busy, with only 3 other tables that is unacceptable. All in all, this experience fell flat due to poor service and even oysters, steaks and dover sole couldn't save it. "

  • "I took my family to the Grill for dinner on Mother's Day. I have been many times before on business and I wanted my family to see what a South Beach style restaurant would be like if it were transported to Newport, RI. At arrival the valet attendant took the extra time to make sure my children had all they needed from the car and then offered to keep it close by in case we needed anything from our vehicle. After climbing the stairs to the entrance, my daughter was immediately enamored by the silver coated clam shells put together to form a giant piece of wall art. The manager, Tran, greeted us warmly and after wishing my wife a Happy Mother's Day, took the extra time to shake my children's hands. Waterfront table, great food, Wonderful"

  • "The decor of the restaurant and bar are beautiful unfortunately that's not enough to make me go back. The night started out with a charming host and went downhill from there. The service was slow and poorly timed with dinner. It took so long for our cocktails to arrive that I had to ask for them. They were served at the same time with our salads. We ordered 4 medium rare filets and they ranged from medium to well. The host did bring us 4 new steaks that were cooked right and took 2 off of the bill. He did try to make it right but I am always concerned when an upscale restaurant can't cook a steak."

  • "My boyfriend and I had been to Forty One North a few years ago and had a wonderful time. Most recently, we spent a night in Newport for my boyfriend's birthday and I was very excited to make a reservation to return there. Our experience was more fabulous than I could have remembered! Our waiter was awesome, very personable, helpful, and accommodating .. He overheard me mention it being my boyfriends birthday and brought a complementary dessert which was phenomenal. The food was absolutely incredible, very fresh, different, and perfectly prepared and presented. We had the most wonderful time and we can't wait to go back! "

  • "This is in the heart of newport, RI. It is very nicely decorated and with a lovely view of the harbor and bridge. You can catch a sunset. We had a nice special last night of vacation there. We brought our 8 year old daughter. There were other kids but as the night drew on it became more of an adult scene; dates and people out for drinks. The food was good a little pricey but good. Staff was kind but busy. Pros the view and decor, feels special. Cons everything is a la carte making it more pricey but portions were good. I was disappointed with fries: for $7 seemed like we got frozen fries with some garlic and rosemary on top---expected something a little snazzier. Gelato was yummy. Enjoy."

  • "bad start as there was a $10 fee for valet parking. This not even done in the best restaurants in Providence. Apps of Oysters and King Crab were fine. for my entree, I ordered Whole Dover Sole from the menu. Both the waiter and manager both informed me that it could not be served whole, only as a fillet. Strange, so I opted for the Shrimp entree, only fair. My date,s entree of Rack of lamb consisted of 4 chops about a quarter inch thick. It would have been laughable, except for the $44 price tag. poor food at ridiculous prices avoid"

  • "I first ate here last year; my husband & I each had the best meal we've ever had & couldn't wait to return. I returned with my friend & was so excited to bring her here! We started with oysters & specifically asked for smaller ones. I have never seen oysters so huge. Our first course was duck confit rissotto and a sauteed octopus dish. The risotto was OK, nothing special, the octopus itself was tasty, but was soaked in vinegar. Our main courses were braised short ribs and snapper. The ribs were tender but tasteless, the snapper was fishy tasting and again soaked in vinegar. We could not finish anything we were served. Dessert was good, but frozen in the middle. Were charged full price & were the only diners there, should have been a sign."

  • "It is restaurant week in newport so we decided to give it a try, even though we heard mixed reviews about The Grill.The atmosphere is very nice and the view is killer. The service was very good but overall not on par for level they want to be on. The food was fine but the dishes were under seasoned. The pumpkin cheesecake dessert was good but the chocolate cake (they took a big liberty in calling it a cake) was poor. But the thing that left a bad taste in my mouth was the $4.50 cup of coffee So I spent $9 on 2 small cups of coffee. At that price you better check if I want my coffee warmed up, but not once. Last time. They must realize it, it's restaurant week and the dining room was just 50% full."

  • "We continue to go to 41North despite uneven service and food because when they do it right, it's great. This time, we parked at the far end of the parking lot and as usual, the valet came running up demanding $5. REALLY?? Are you so hard up for money from people why are dining in your restaurant? In November? Then the dining room got busy and our waitress seemed to disappear and committed what I consider a cardinal sin - I paid for dinner, but she clearly didn't check the name on the credit card and returned it to my husband. The food? 90% excellent, with so-so pork tenderloin. They also need to get real with their wine list- more wines by the glass and more reasonably priced wines (under $50)"

  • "Although getting seated took a while as our dinner was the last night of Restaurant Week and the place was busy, it was well worth the wait. The specials were great and the chef also made a vegetarian dish for one person in the party, since there was no vegetarian item on the menu. Lots of wine made this not a bargain but a very enjoyable dinner. We also had a great view of where our day started - the Pell Bridge and a 4.2 mile run."

  • "Spectacular! We got to go for restaurant week, and got one of the best meals I have had in years. The tuna tartar, the fillet, and the scallops were all unforgettable. This place is fit for Top Chef fans, as Tom would even be impressed with these dishes. The down side is that we would not have been able to afford such an amazing meal if it was not restaurant week. During the rest of the year, you only get what you pay for."
