We eat here at least couple times a year for special events. This year, it was our first time due to the virus closure. Actually, it was the best dinner we have had at this venue. My wife was reluctant to go as she was disappointed last year when we ate there twice last year. It was a treat to have dinner last night. There was nothing to improve on. We only had one other table in the room we sat in. In fact we enjoyed the smaller book lined room at this time of year. We will be back again.

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and wanted a special destination.
We always love Castle Hill in the Summer so we thought this would be a perfect spot.
We got the tasting menu which is a three course meal. I must say the description on line does not do it justice at all. Each course was outstanding. Starting with Red Wine Risotto and the Ricotta Gnocchetti we moved on to our main course which was the Dry-Aged Beef Ribeye and the Monkfish. We completed the meal with Lemon Souffle and the Apple-Olive Oil Cake. In between there were some wonderful breads provided. Added to this dining experience was excellent service provided by Alex. She truly enhanced the overall experience. We definitely highly recommend this dining experience. Another really nice plus was the fact that we requested an earlier time for dinner and unfortunately that was not available. That day we received a call offering us the exact time we wanted. Perfect all the way around!

Thank goodness this classic dining room has re-opened its doors. The menu is up to its usual superb standards and the service, attentive but not officious, was a relief from the dreary current events. If you should be so lucky as to get a reservation, you shan’t be disappointed.

The view is spectacular, the food & service excellent. It was a little pricey especially the paired wine & food menu. The wine portion was only 1.5 ounces. We opted not to have that we choose the 3 course dinner at $85 pp.

Excellent service. Fantastic ambiance. However the 85 dollar prefix price was way overpriced. That 85 was without drinks. When I booked, I thought the prefixed price was 35 which is what is was worth .
Go to bar which is excellent and order from the bar menu.

The dinning room was super romantic and classy. The wine was amazing!! The server’s/service was amazing, very knowledgeable and elegant. But our steak wasn’t cooked correctly and for the price of the meal (500$ for 2 people) you’d hope they would cook it perfectly.
