The Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn
The dinner was delightful and the chef was very willing to make accommodations to the menu for specific dietary requirements. The restaurant week menu had many fabulous choices.
The food was delicious, atmosphere was great and the service was wonderful!
Overall very happy with the restaurant week menu and choices we selected.
Everything was wonderful from the greeting we received as we arrived to the service, food and ambience. Couldn’t recommend it more!
Delightful, always have a wonderful meal! The best view you could ever wish for!
A wonderful dinner. Castle Hill is one of our favorites and always good good and impeccable service.
Dan was excellent and made our Dinner Experience a night to remember. The food was wonderful and the drinks paired perfectly.
Terrific restaurant with amazing everything!! The food and service are exceptional.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in the round dining room with a beautiful view. The service was excellent, all staff members very friendly. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable, especially when pouring the wine tastings. All of our food courses (we chose the 6 course option), we not only artistically presented, but tasted delicious. It was a fun and relaxing night and I would highly recommend.
The slow roasted sirloin was fairly tough.
The coq au vin was excellent,
The service is impeccable at Castle Hill, and the menu is creative and delectable.
Outstanding views, food and service. My family and I had such a great experience there. Restaurant week gives us the opportunity to visit great establishments such as Castle Hill.
Such a wonderful dining experience. The staff were all both helpful and charming and we truly felt like it was more than just dinner it was an experience.
A last minute dinner date. Service and food was some of the best ever!
It's gotten easier to find great food experiences around the country in recent years, but harder to find a truly fine dining experience of the sort that is delivered at Castle Hill. The staff is highly attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the food and its preparation. The wine pairings were delightful -- not the obvious selection in all cases but all great pairing with great reasoning behind them. Any wine lover would do well to let the house make your selections. Overall, a dining experience that was elegant without ever seeming 'stuffy'.
Tasty and imaginative (Chicken-fried cauliflower?? Who knew there was such thing and that it could be so delicious?) food, beautifully prepared and plated. The duck was at the perfect temperature and juicy; the fluke was crisp and moist. Portions were just the right size. The amuse-bouches were as creative and delicious as they were unexpected. The wine pairing was excellent, a perfect and balanced combination that handled a wide range of flavors (roast, salt, umami, sweet, acid) as they came up. The sunset was beautifully framed by the enormous windows; service was gracious, efficient and friendly, while discreet. A splendid two-hour dining experience, as special dinners should be.
Highly recommend the chefs tasting. It was incredible. The price can be considered high, however, it was worth every penny. If you are looking for a place to WOW someone or looking for a special occasion meal, I would highly recommend choosing Castle Hill Inn
Total experience was wonderful.
My only criticism of Open Table is that I was not able to receive ANY Open Table points for this visit and I don’t understand why.
Castle Hill is more than fine dining, it’s an experience!
Castle Hill is a complete experience. The service, the food, the setting in amazing.
You will feel like royalty!
Love it - all of it. Every time we come here it’s great!
As always, impeccable service and amazing food. This is our go-to spot for special events. Finest restaurant in Newport.
We went at sunset really wonderful view
Service was excellent
Food quite good wine list extensive
Wonderful evening we spent 2 hours and were not rushed.
Reccomend it highly
6 course tasting menu was amazing
One of the premier dining spots in America, always a treat. The food is creative but not overwhelming the service is personable and pleasant. The wine list is impressive but there are great moderate priced alternatives. The view is one of the best on the East Coast. In all, a perfect night.
A truly special experience. Execution was spectacular of both food menu and service. Guest focused experience was wonderful at a special location.
A wonderful restaurant for a special occasion or night out. Delicious food and perfect service
Beautiful experience. Service is top notch and all of the food was excellent. I really appreciated how well the 4 course dinner was paced (I hate when food comes out too fast). We had a lovely, relaxing Valentine's weekend dinner. I was also thrilled that they had one of my favorite wines by the bottle and glass. For a wonderful, relaxing, top-notch experience I can't recommend Castle Hill Inn highly enough.
Delicious food and the service was simply outstanding! Always a great time dining here.
Food was wonderful and the service was excellent. It was Valentine’s Day so there was a special prefix menu. Our server Nick was outstanding. Plan on returning to order from the regular menu soon. Our
Thank you for your kind words! I'm happy to hear Nick was a suitable host for the evening. I look forward to having you in again. Elle
Restaurant offered a special 4 course menu and while the food was good it a little too much. It was very quiet in the area we were in even though they had a 3 piece string band. Service was very good and Castle Hill is an iconic location.
Absolutely loved our time there. Nick was phenomenal and the food never disappoints.
We had the fixed price three course menu which is what I would suggest as a means to control the cost but we were given a few extra tastes at no additional charge which was very nice. Also, the choices were combinations of tastes that I have never seen together. All in all, it was a very nice night out.
Sensational and certainly one of the best places we have ever eaten. We will definitely be returning
Thomas, Thank you for your kind words! I look forward to seeing you in the near future. Elle Wadel Dining Room Manager
Loved Castle Hill, everything was top notch. Even was surprised with gifts to take home for me and friend’s birthdays. Didn’t realize it was a fixed menu but everything was divine. Highly recommend.
A+++ experience.. food , ambiance, service all exceptional
Service was outstanding. Room was lovely and food
Was excellent but very overpriced
The Castle Inn is at a special scenic location in Newport and is especially fun in the warmer weather. We were there for a winter celebration. Our waiter was well informed but seemed to have an abundance of tables as noted when he said he would be back to discuss the menu and after a wait, we were greeted by another young woman. The food here is delicious and special. Our appetizers of Broccoli and cheddar soup and the Potatoes with truffles were delightful. However, we were disappointed with the lobster entree and the seared fluke. I am used to lobster that I often prepare by steaming that is sweet and juicy,, This roasted lobster with an additional $12.00 charge was not the aforementioned. Rather than that carrot puree, it needed a touch of sweet butter. The fluke which my husband had was not a favorite of his as it was also dry and had a strong fish flavor. We did finish with super desserts - the banana soufflé, which was elegant and delicious, as well as the simple, but yummy, ice cream with chocolate and caramel sauce. The complimentary truffles were lovely as was the amuse-bouche. I think the service that evening was impaired due to the gas outages in other Newport Restaurants that caused an influx of patrons at the Inn. We look forward to returning in the summer and sitting outside to enjoy the great food and the unparalleled view.
Good afternoon, thank you for joining us. I appreciate your notes regarding our lobster entrée, as we have since been able to improve the dish following your feedback. In addition, learning of the delays you experienced gives us the opportunity to continue to train and improve our front of house team. Please feel free to give me a call to assist in making your next reservation, I want to be sure to meet you in person and assist in making your next experience flawless. Elle Wadel 401-324-4511
Thank you to the exceptional team at Castle Hill for making our engagement dinner so memorable. From the moment we sat down, the team was so accommodating. Some friends had purchased us cocktails and wine to celebrate, and they took note of the occasion and repeatedly congratulated us. We each had the three course menu. I started sweet potato ravioli, and my fiance had the seasonal soup. It was divine! For dinner I had Seared Halibut. It was served with root vegetables in a chowder sauce- again amazing. My fiance had the pheasant and raved about it. For dessert we both had the Coffee Semifreddo and it was heavenly. It was the perfect portion for each course so you felt satisfied but not overly full. Our waitress was extremely attentive throughout. She made a wonderful wine suggestion that paired perfectly with everything we ate. We will definitely be back and hope to make this an annual tradition!
Everything was outstanding. Maybe one of the top two or three meals I have had. Not cheap but reasonable value.;
Great food and service. Seven course prixe fixe menu with great quality. Extensive wine list. Nice atmosphere.
