Special from beginning to end! We got the 3 course prix fixe with wine pairings which were perfect. Castle Hill has such great character and ambiance. If you’re looking for a special place, this is it!
Fantastic food! Everything about dining here is perfect!
Absolutely amazing food. The service was on point. My husband and I agreed it was well worth the money. Overall fantastic experience!
Other than a somewhat put-upon bartender and the fact that they had neither our first champagne nor wine choices (Neither was a deal-breaker.), this was a perfect meal and a perfect evening. Sweet local oysters with a sea foam mignonette and THE best cod we have ever tasted. Special dietary needs were happily and creatively accommodated. Rounded out with blackberry ginger sorbet and cheese. We didn’t want to leave!
The staff was outstanding and very attentive to our every needs. They knew everything I had mention on the phone when I made the reservations and couldn't be more pleased. I would go in a heartbeat not only for an outstanding meal, but the service.
My best friend and I were celebrating birthdays as well as many years of friendship. The dining room at Castle Hill is second to none in their menu and service. And the view!
We had a wonderful experience at Castle Hill. We had not had dinner there before so took the opportunity to try it during restaurant. It was a great value. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. The only thing I would criticize if pushed was that the coffee wasn’t hot, but overall we had a great evening. Can’t wait to go back!
The attention to detail was superb, in particular the attentiveness to my wife's allergies set a new standard by which all other restaurants will be measured. Thank you!
Excellent menu and execution. We had the Restaurant Week menu, which was a steal compared to the restaurant’s usual, exorbitant prices. Service was superb
Gorgeous venue, delicious food, great service, we enjoyed our anniversary at Castle Hill
It was a perfect evening at Castle Hill. Every course was wonderful. The Celery Root Soup was lovely and light. The Burrata-Radicchio Salad and the Roasted Beets were delicious. We all ordered the beef dish, which was excellent. The beef was so tender and flavorful, and the portions were generous. The chocolate mousse bar was densely chocolatey and rich. The perfect ending to a perfect meal. The service is top-notch. The staff is very attentive and friendly.
Great food and service as always. Very consistent high quality all around.
Great food and view as always. Went on Restaurant week for dinner and it was fabulous as always.
We went to the Castle Hill Inn for their Restaurant Week tasting menu on my birthday. An overall incredible experience with delicious food and drinks, and amazing recommendations by our waiter, Dan, who went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. I highly recommend the Paloma! Delicious!
Unbelievably fantastic dinner. Every course was superb. The staff is beyond reproach. Best date or special occasion dinner on the island.
Wonderful prize fix with wine pairing
But too noisy when room is full
That's my only complaint
Dinner was fenominal. The choices though limited were sufficient to give you enough to chose from. The service made you feel welcome and catered to your every need. It is definitely a wonderful dining experience when in Newport.
Limited menu that tries to hard to be a N.Y. fine dining place. Overcomplicated food is spotty. Great service
An excellent restaurant in every respect. Impeccable service ,with great food and wine .
Outstanding food and service. Superb location. Great hotel
Went to the dining room for dinner on our honeymoon. Our waiter Harrison brought out bubbling Apple cider from Normandy when we first sat down and proceeded to exceed our expectations throughout the rest of our dining experience. Everything brought to the table was amazing from the shrimp cocktail to the chocolate hazelnut bar. Will definitely be back.
It’s a small room so you will hear others conversations and they yours but the food and wine were fantastic.
Did the 6 course tasting some of the dishes were absolutely outstanding and over the top and some were just "good" , but overall amazing and the service/experience was perfect. Thanks.
Castle Hill Inn was exceptional as far as the location, service and food! Our server Harrison was impeccable at best. However, we almost left due to the rude young dining hostess before we even met him, she was condescending, rude and actually made me very upset but I wanted to wait to address her terrible behavior after I returned home from vacation as to not spoil the special occasion that we went there for. I made the reservation way in advance for a special occasion on Open Table and also called three days prior to the reservation to go over small details for it. When we arrived we were given everything except for the details requested in advance, one request was a quiet corner table, we were put next to a crying infant in a car seat that was actually on the floor and told basically too bad by the hostess, she was really a rude little girl. I think Castle Hill is beautiful, the service and chef were completely NYC style and a high level for sure, why they would have these young people running the front entrance as the face of this old beauty is a head scratcher to me!
Very disappointing dinner at the Dining room at Castle Inn. The food was bland and boring, even the oysters. The presentation was not great. We expected a great experience after reading the reviews but this was far from what we call a fine dining occasion. With a limited menu offering you expect nothing but excellence. Our best interaction was with the sommelier.
We have been many times. Castle Hill is our go to place for consistently great food, special occasions and summer lunches on the lawn. Service this time was excellent and so efficient. Food was excellent and has yet to disappoint.
Unfortunately I have to eat gluten and dairy free. While making our reservations I ensured this wasn’t a big deal for the kitchen. They promised it wasn’t and said they’d withhold any offending items off a plate. Unfortunately so much of the food is already prepped with soy sauce or dairy that little to nothing could be withheld. Every single dish on their prix fix menu used gluten or dairy based that were impossible to remove. They knew this-it’s a set menu set days and days before.
Service was impeccable but I was sick the next day. The food wasn’t that great for the trade off. The ambiance is very special.
Sour grapes from me and some of that has to do with dietary restrictions but I also went out of my way to make sure the Relais & Chateau property could accommodate. I wouldn’t have gone if they hadn’t said it wouldn’t be a problem.
Spectacular combinations, unusual and creative. Wine recommendations were also top notch.
Food and service is outstanding. A little pricey, but a great special experience
We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and the staff could not have been nicer, especially our waiter Harrison. Food was great and presentation superb. Service was tremendous and all staff were friendly and responsive. We had one negative experience with a rude patron who was using their cellphone in dining room despite clear instructions on menu that phones not allowed. Manager addressed it promptly which was much appreciated by all guests. Great experience and would highly recommend it.
Great evening except for the woman who took a call on her cellphone. The wait staff didn’t take charge of asking her to put it away, so I had to ask the maitre de to do so. More initiative from them would have been appreciated even if they’d asked the maitre de to speak to her.
Unbelievable place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary!
This was our second visit to the dining room and they do not disappoint. Food and service are beyond excellent, the dining room and view are beautiful. Great romantic dinner location. I proposed outside after dinner last year and she said yes. Highly recommend.
Some dishes like the steak were excellent. Others like the tuna were in the bland side.
Over the top. Excellent overall. It was our 30th Anniversary. Just a perfect evening. Couldn’t Have felt more welcome. Informed and welcoming staff.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Great view in the daytime and for sunset
Was an excellent experience. The only thing that kept it from being a “5” rating was the feeling of being rushed. As a very expensive, gourmet dinner, the courses should not be on top of one another. And certainly the first course should not have been served immediately after just receiving a pre dinner cocktail.
Difficult to find!
A little too formal & “stuffy”.
Very creative Cuisine & wonderful attentive sevice.
Danny our server was very attentive and enthusiastic about describing items on the menu. We chose the 3 course meal with wine pairings. My husband thought the cauliflower apetizer was delicious. This is something he doesn’t usually order. The pasta fagioli was fresh with a smoky tomato broth that was excellent. If you are a foodie who loves fresh savory dishes from local farms complemented by wine pairings from a knowledgeable staff this is the dining experience for you.
Once again Castle Hill Inn did not dissapoint.....we did the wine parings and it was wonderful. Good thing we had a driver
