    Everything was amazing! We happened to be in Newport during restaurant week! We had a 6 course dinner. The service was excellent along with the food! My only regret was not making reservations earlier to have an earlier start. If you are in a hurry, please know the service is exceptional and food is made to order, it takes more time. By the time our delicious meal was done, we were exhausted. Again, that was our oversight! I would love to come back when we have more daylight! Im sure the views are stunning!

    Castle Hill is a truly excellent dining experience. In the dining room they only have a 6 course tasting menu (apparently you can order ala carte in the bar), but there are a few choices for each course. The wine list is also very good. My only comment would be that the cheese option (an extra $20) only offered one fairly large portion of a pretty strong goat cheese which I really didn't like. I think they should offer at least one alternative cheese. Other than that, dinner was really wonderful.

    We went for a special reunion of old friends. We knew it was going to be expensive. The ambience and service were excellent. It was quite costly for the amount of food. We had a 6 course tasting menu plus drinks which were extra. The courses were well prepared small bites superbly prepared. Small being the operative word. The overall experience was so spectacular and the waitstaff were so well informed and accommodating. I would definitely say it is a once in a long while or lifetime experience.

    It was very, very expensive for the six-course menu. I would recommend it since the food was delicious but I would put in a caveat that it was expensive. Two people was 433.00 and we do not drink alcohol.

    As someone that bases their travels on food, I was SO glad to stumble upon this gem. Off the beaten path, away from the main downtown with ocean views & picturesque landscapes, Castle Hill is perfect for a sunset toast and celebration! Carl was our waiter and was attentive and perfect in every way. Thank you for a memorable anniversary celebration.

    Our second time at Castle Hill. Last year we deemed it our best meal ever. This year did not disappoint. More courses this year was more fun. Food was wonderful, even their bread was second to none. I missed having their rack of lamb, but everything was great. Their Old Fashioned was the best I’ve had in a year, albeit incredibly strong. Incredibly charming. We were there for 3 hrs, felt like 20 minutes.

    Table location and ambiance of room was disappointing. Expectations of fixed 6 entree menu was not met. Selection limited w/o having to pay additional charge per entree. Visited Castle Hill for dinner several times and always enjoyed food and service. Honestly felt fixed menu would limit my attraction for future dinner plans.
