The Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn
Best Restaurant in Newport! Excellent chef and incredible service. Visited Friday night and then went back a 2nd time Sunday.
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.
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!
Only complaint was that we only received half of the uneaten food we requested to take home.
Great anniversary dinner with a beautiful sunset view.
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!
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.

Castle Hill is the best place for a special occasion. Service food ambiance always top notch! We even got there early for the sun set which was spectacular!

Thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary with us SusanW. We are happy to deliver an elegant meal in a romantic setting for your special occasion!
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. The staff was great!
Thank you for celebrating with us! Happy Anniversary.
I think our experience could have been enhanced by a sunset reservation.
We do have some pretty magnificent sunsets. Hope you will join us again soon!
Wow! Unforgettable...A must!
Thank you for celebrating with us.
A wonderful celebration spot, just steps from an adorable lighthouse with very knowledgeable and friendly staff, some of the best food in the area and an elevated dining experience. Views from most seats, outdoor seating if you're lucky to catch the weather at the right time. Leave yourself time to enjoy each course! We had a perfect anniversary celebration and I would highly recommend making the drive to this charming inn and their fabulous restaurant!
Anniversary dinner couldn’t have been better. The food and the staff were outstanding! Plan to be back next year.
We can't wait to have you back! Glad to hear you enjoyed your special evening with us.
Impeccable service, fabulous food and a beautiful venue!
We couldn't agree with you more! Thank you for dining with us.
From the welcome to the goodnight hugs and kisses everything was so impressive. The ocean view the food and the service were all wonderful. They even provided a miniature bday cake with candle and all. Loved it!
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed everything from start to finish! Thank you for celebrating with us.
Stopped in for a special dinner with my wife. The hostess was very friendly and quickly brought us to our table. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. We had the wine paring with our dinner and she explained all the wines and beers that were paired with our meals. The place is a bit formal so we where a little disappointing to see an other table wearing a tee-shirt.
Overall we enjoyed our meals. Dinner is a three hour event so plan accordingly. If you don’t have time for a formal dinner stop in for a drink with amazing views.
Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear your enjoyed your experience! For The Dining Room, we do our best to require collared shirts for gentlemen, and prohibit ripped jeans, sneakers, and sandals. Dinner is definitely a culinary event and we deliver in an intimate setting with amazing ocean views... who wouldn't want to spend two to three hours with us? We promise you wouldn't regret it!
we had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. It was excellent but expensive
Good service and ambiance. The highlight was that the rack of lamb was probably the best lamb chops that I have ever had!
That's amazing to hear Dwayne! We will be sure to share your review of the rack of lamb with our culinary team. Hope you will join us again soon.
The establishment is so beautiful, and the room that we dined in was also beautiful and quiet. We had a cocktail on the lawn, watching the sun go down and that was really where we should have stopped. We had the 5 course tasting, and it was a tiny mouthful of food per plate! We also did a wine pairing, and the wine was so-so. We left hungry. In addition, it took forever for the service for some reason. I would not do the dinner in the future, just the bar, drink, ambience.
Castle Hill Inn is absolutely amazing. The food alone would be worth driving from several states away just to experience, but the service! Good Lord, every single role from Maître d' all the way to the waterboy, just so far and away above any expectation we had. This place absolutely deserves its status as a Relaix and Chateaux destination.
We were completely blown away by the quality of the food, the pacing with which the courses were brought out, the knowledge of the staff, the sourcing of the ingredients....all of it. It is without question one of the best dining experiences you can have, and it is adorned with ocean and bay views that are second to none. We will return many times over.
Food was 100% amazing and the service was even better! Love love loves it!
Special occasion. Arrived and valet took care of my car. We went directly to a lawn chair and had a glass of wine as the sun went down and boats floated by. A nice guest from Virginia Beach ( a total stranger) walked by and offered to take our picture. Later we were seated for our dinner, still looking out at Narragansett Bay.
Beautiful setting and the food was equal to the occasion. We both had Risotto (delicious), then Sea Bass, then desert, chocolate for one and peach for the other.
Expensive, but worth it
Waiter had too many tables.
Lobster was undercooked, steak over cooked. And returned to kitchen.
Entree delivery took over an hour.
Sat at 7 pm and left 10:30.
Had been told our reservation would entitle us to a table outside unless weather was inclement and we would be seated inside. We were seated inside with the high price menu which made my guests uncomfortable.
Awesome view and sunset
Celebrated my wife’s 60th birthday and she loved it!
We dined at the Castle Hill Inn for our anniversary and had a fantastic time. We were warmly greeted with a celebratory glass of Prosecco and the attention paid to us all evening was exceptional. The menu exceeded our expectations, and the wine pairings made the meal that much more enjoyable. The waitstaff were very knowledgeable about all aspects of the dining experience. This was one of the top ten dining experiences we have ever had, and we plan to return for all subsequent anniversaries. We could not have had a better evening.
Attention to detail is our specialty! We thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary at The Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn and appreciate your kind review. Its always wonderful to hear we are in a guest's top ten! Hope to impress you even more next year.
An incredible dining experience. Courses paced nicely. Food and presentation outstanding. Service beyond exceptional.
We were there to celebrate my husband’s retirement. Such a special night and a fantastic meal.
Thank you Joan. We are thrilled you chose to celebrate such a happy occasion with us and glad it was a memorable night.
