Reservations are available online, via phone, or email request dining@castlehillinn.com two weeks in advance, for parties of up to seven guests. Serving from 5:30pm - 9:00pm, we will be open Thursday through Monday, closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Chef Lou Rossi’s $92 three-course “prix fixe” menu will change often, featuring locally sourced proteins and produce with Mediterranean influences and inspirations. A selection of wine flights will complement the menu, exploring wines from distinctive and unique regions, vintners, and styles. Each flight of three wines will be the equivalent of two full glasses and will be offered at a variety of price points. While we do have bars open for pre-dinner drinks, they frequently reach capacity on summer evenings. In this instance, you will be asked to only enter property within thirty-minutes of your reservation.

Nice atmosphere. Outstanding service. Unfortunately the food does not measure up. You can have a better meal at lots of other places in Newport for a fraction of the price.
Disappointing!

We had a most enjoyable anniversary celebration dinner in the Sunset Room at Castle Hill. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and each course of the prix fixe menu was outstanding. The selections for each of the three course were varied enough to satisfy anyone's preferences. Lastly, our waiter Nick was excellent. It's a special location and anyone visiting Newport should consider making a reservation.

This is a lovely, classic boutique hotel in a grand house. The prix fixe menus is small but creative and the servings are ample but not generous. Some of the wait staff are engaging while others are aloof. WE felt the cost was not justified by the experience.

Fantastic food, service and wine. An interesting and not outrageous wine list. Plenty of options at different price points. Enjoyed a still very young 2010 Chateau Musar white, and a 1995 Lopez de Heredia Viña Tondonia red.

Nick, out waiter was gracious. Our meals were perfectly cooked and presented in a lovely manner. The farm to table ingredients were fresh, beautifully seasoned and the prepared arrived at the table at the correct temperature. The three course prix fix menu was a value and was money well spent. The Dining Room at The Inn at Castle Hill was exquisite.

I highly recommend coming at least once. The Dining Room has a spectacular view of the harbor. The prix fixe menu is a good deal for the quality of food, and their cocktails were also fragrant and delicious. If not the Dining Room, the Lawn also has a great menu list with the same views. Ambience is perfect for date night.

A couple small reasons why I didn't give this place full 5 stars... the kitchen mixed up our appetizers twice and I felt the lobster tails I got were a minute overdone. The staff was overall helpful and corrected our orders when we let them know. You will have a great experience here!
