Thank you Paul and we are very happy you enjoyed. You have shared some truly kind words with us and we are grateful. We hope you continue to join us for more experiences where we look forward to seeing you again.
What an anniversary dinner. We had a nice table next to the window and could see the Newport bridge lit up.
We opted for the three course fixed price dinner option with wine pairing.
Our service throughout was top notch by the entire service team. Our lead server walked us through each meal option with wine and did outstanding.
For the first course my wife had the oysters and I had the squash soup. Best we ever had.
Next my wife had the duck and I had the beef filet. My wife enjoyed her duck but thought it was slightly over cooked and smelt a little gamey. My filet was cooked to perfection with nice flavors. Overall we both enjoyed them.
For desert I had the soufflé and my wife chocolate ganache. Both were top notch.
The wines that were paired were all excellent. However some of the pours seemed a little light.
This is a great restaurant for a special occasion. It was worth the money for a special night but the most expensive meal we ever had.
We will go back.
Thank you for choosing us for your anniversary celebration and we are very happy you both enjoyed. We appreciate your kind words and we are thrilled to hear you will be joining us again.
Overall great food and restaurant. Service was good and there were plenty of staff on hand. My sense was the staff was new or maybe the winter staff. The doorman didn't seem to speak at all which seemed a little off. Food was excellent with several rounds of free treats from the kitchen. Was a birthday celebration and I'd asked for a cake or something when I booked the reservation... after dinner they brought a mini cake with a candle- it was delicious. We were also given a free jar of gooseberry jam, also excellent.
Thank you for joining us Greg and glad you enjoyed. We appreciate your feedback too. We strive for a five-star experience with every guest. We will discuss your comments with the team as we always want to be better where we can. We hope you choose to join us again.
Great evening part of Newport Restaurant Week
Thank you for joining us.
Delightful meal served by professional, friendly wait staff.
Thank you David! We are very happy you enjoyed and grateful you chose to dine with us.
We booked this restaurant for Newport Restaurant Week. First time there and we enjoyed it immensely. Everything was classy including our server was dressed in a suit. He was knowledgeable about the history of the mansion and a superb server. The food was phenomenal. We live 1.5 hours away and will gladly do the long trek again soon since it was one of the most enjoyable dining experience.
Thank you Leo and Jane. We always love Restaurant Week as it brings new guests to Castle Hill. We are so happy you enjoyed too. Thank you for making the trip and we sincerely hope you come back and join us again.
The service, attention and atmosphere are exceptional. The details and extras are amazing. The food was excellent ,the variety was excellent.
Thank you RIdiner! We are truly grateful you enjoyed and hope we see you again soon.
CH knows what they’re doing. The atmosphere, charm and beauty of the property are impeccable. The service and food are unmatched.
It was our anniversary and they surprised us with complimentary champagne too; nice touch!
We will be back. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening!!
Thank you Aaron and we are thrilled you had a wonderful evening. We are grateful for your kind words and we are looking forward to having the pleasure of serving you again.
The service was outstanding, especially Nick. Patient and attentive with all our questions, and all his recommendations were spot on. Food was 5 star. Butternut squash soup was incredible, and the duck was prepared perfectly. Overall highly recommended. Very pleased with our choice to celebrate our anniversary. Will be sure to include Castle Hill Inn on our next trip to Newport. Thanks again to all the staff for a wonderful experience.
Thank you for celebrating your Anniversary with us! We are so happy to hear you had a great time and are looking forward to joining us again. Thank you for your recommendation.
Fabulous dinner and view... highly recommend it!!!
Thank you MeganM.
Based on our recent experience, the restaurant fell short of our usual fine experience there.
Service was inattentive, very slow, a long wait from appetizer to entree, 7:15 arrival, entree served at 8:30 Had to ask for water to be refilled. Extremely salty swordfish entree, experienced by three diners in our party... Disappointing for the price.
Thank you for joining us last week, and for taking the time to provide feedback as well. I'm terribly sorry to hear that we fell short of expectations on this experience. It sounds like we were not on the mark in terms of food quality and timing, and even worse that we were not attentive enough to rectify while you were here with us. I hope you might find the time to speak directly so we can see how to make this right. I look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you again soon.
Beautifully scenic. The food is delicious and the staff is very attentive and accommodating.
Thank you Raw1087.
Our dinner at Castle Hill Inn was simply the best restaurant experience my wife and I have ever had. The dinner started with the sunset on a beautiful night. We had superb seating to view it. The service was top notch. The food (three-course prix fixe with wine pairings) was marvelous. Our waitress described in detail each wine and the reason for its pairing with our food choices--and they did not disappoint. Once again, simply the best and a must for our next visit to Newport.
Thank you KeithA. We love hearing when a guest has experienced the best with us. Our culinary and service teams work hard to ensure every aspect of your visit is a delight. We are grateful for your review.
The premiere special occasion restaurant in RI, they treat every occasion like it is a special occasion. The view of the Newport Bridge is beautiful and the food is astonishing. This is not quick dining, so plan to relax and enjoy your evening here as you are treated amazingly.
Thank you Michelle. It is an honor for us to be considered the premiere special occasion restaurant in RI and we work hard to earn that. We are glad you enjoyed and hope you can return so we can have the pleasure of serving you again.
Best Restaurant in Newport! Excellent chef and incredible service. Visited Friday night and then went back a 2nd time Sunday.
THANK YOU!! We will be sure to share your review with our entire team at The Dining Room. Hope to see you again soon.
If you want to experience culinary perfection look no further than here. Highly recommend the chef’s pairing. Plan on investing between $300 to $400 per couple but you will have a meal that you will never forget. It is not about portions, rather about flavor and presentation.
Thank you MarkD. This is exactly what we work hard to achieve. We appreciate your review and thank you for sharing an evening with us.
The 3-course Prix Fixe menu was amazing and expertly paired with wine for each course. The waiter was super knowledgeable, polite and sociable. The restaurant assisted me in rearranging my reservation with ease and understanding after my babysitter cancelled and I needed to bring my daughter along on what was intended to be a parent's date-night out. Will definitely be eating here for dinner again!
We are glad to hear you enjoyed a wonderful experience. We are grateful for sharing your review and hope to see you again soon.
Had such a amazing birthday dinner at Castle Hill! It lived up to everything that we imagined it to be. Five star service, well composed dishes, finishing with a great ambiance. We'll definitely be back here for dinner soon. Highly recommend!
Thank you JasmyneM. We appreciate your comments and are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience immensely. This is exactly what we strive for for our guest experience. We look forward to seeing you at our table again soon.
Only complaint was that we only received half of the uneaten food we requested to take home.
Thank you for joining us at The Dining Room. We certainly understand how that could be disappointing and we offer our sincerest apologies for the error.
Great anniversary dinner with a beautiful sunset view.
Thank you for celebrating with us Karen C!
Spectacular evening! The food was exceptional... and the wait staff never left us wanting for anything. The squash soup was superb. At our table, we had beef, seafood and vegetarian... and everything was wonderful. The desserts were also very special... best chocolate soufle I've ever had. Try to get there early enough for sunset. It was dark when we arrived, but what we saw was so intriguing... we went back the next morning to see the view... it's absolutely beautiful. While this is a pricey restaurant... it was definitely worth it!
Thank you for joining us WayneF. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit from start to finish. We hope you will join us again and experience a Castle Hill Inn sunset- it truly is a magnificent sight.
Hands down the best dining experience. Can not recommend the chefs tasting and wine pairing enough. It may seem expensive but the food you get and the ample wine makes it worth every dollar. Do t miss out on this Jem!
Thank you Christina! We hope you will join us again for another great culinary and wine experience.
The Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn is an excellent choice for a special dinner. We had the 3 course prix fixe dinner. All three courses were excellent, both perfectly prepared and beautifully served. My husband felt that the duck was perhaps the best duck he had ever had. High praise, indeed. The service was attentive but not overbearing. My only (mild) criticism was the noise level which was due to our close proximity to another table who were rather loud, but the room itself was fine. Another excellent feature was that we indicated we were not in a hurry and they timed our meal accordingly. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Service was very slow!
Food was overcooked!
Disappointing especially given the cost!
The whole dining experience was perfect! The room is beautiful, the service and food both spectacular. I had the lamb, my husband had the duck. Both were delicious
Thank you TeachLI! Very glad you enjoyed your meal with us. We look forward to serving you again soon.
