We have eaten here a couple of times. It is quite expensive, but it is an experience. However, the food seems stuck in a rut. The offerings really don't change much. I think it is time they added an a la carte menu for those who really don't want a pre fixe experience. I would come more often if I could jut order a wonderful main course and a nice glass of wine.

Christmas lunch while visiting Newport for the holidays at Castle Hill Inn was perfect. The food was excellent and very well-prepared -with attention to detail of what is a fine-dining restaurant, the main room where we were sat just as perfect given the terrific view of the water. Service was extremely graceful and professional. The soufflé light and fluffy and delicious the perfect end to a great Xmas lunch. Thank you Castle Hill inn.

This was in celebration of Eava and my anniversary, and we wanted to go somewhere special. We chose Castle Hill. This was our first time at this iconic venue. We sail past castle Hill quite often on our sailboat Aries Dream.

The food was wonderfully delicious. The service was spectacular, and the ambiance was perfect.

I am sure we will be back again. Perhaps on our next anniversary.

Thank you

Still can’t stop thinking about how sublime our meal was with you on Sunday, Dec 5th. The service was impeccable & the food was glorious. The attention to detail was so apparent from the time we were met by our hostess, Devyn. Can’t wait to come back in the summer time when we can enjoy the sunset on the water!
But being here during the holidays was ever bit as special!!

Three course Prix fixe, Very dissappointed in the tuna appetizer, sounds good on paper, but tasteless despite beautiful piece of tuna and presentation. No complaints on beef entree excellent. But as the appetizer was so disappointing cannot give 5stars as the price of meal is very high. In my opinion the price should reflect in an impeccable meal.

My husband and I were treated with dignity and respect from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Our waiter started us with a complementary champagne because we were celebrating our anniversary. The diner was delicious - the root vegetable soup was outstanding along with the halibut fish and then the delicious desert. Thank you for the complementary chocolates. Everything was outstanding about the evening. Thank you.

Very nice atmosphere in a beautifully kept and historic Newport mansion with water views. The food was absolutely perfect and the service staff was very attentive, friendly, and helpful in making recommendations. The cocktails were well crafted (I highly recommend the apple cider cocktail for a nice fall treat). For those not looking to dress up or for a more casual atmosphere, CH also has a relaxed bar setting off the main dining room to enjoy a separate but also delicious menu. Would highly recommend either!

My girlfriend and I couldn’t have been happier with the entire experience. The service was top notch. They were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the menu and wines. And the food was excellent. We both had the root vegetable soup which we both enjoyed. For the entrees, we chose the halibut and venison loin. The halibut was excellent but the venison loin stole the show. We both thought it was unbelievable. To finish the meal off we both had the apple dessert, which was fantastic. This is definitely a special occasion type of restaurant, but worth every penny! Can’t wait to get back here.
