    We had a wonderful dinner at Castle Inn. We did the wine paring. Our waiter, Dan was knowledgeable about wines and did a fantastic job matching the wine to the food. The food was creative and delicious. We will definitely return.

After dinner, we had the pleasure speaking with Sara from the concierge desk, who was very attentive to us and our request prior to heading home to Connecticut. Many Thanks to All! Stacy and Jason

    Karl was very knowledgeable and assisted with describing the farm to table foods and the wine pairings. We did not feel rushed and enjoyed our meal. The six course tasting was exceptional. Alex was very attentive and provided us with excellent service and made us feel special. This our favorite restaurant for a special event. The staff at Castle Hill Inn always provide a pleasurable fine dining experience that is rare in this day and age. If you are looking for this type of experience this is the place for you.

    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.

    Quite possibly one of the most memorable and enjoyable meals we've ever had. From the view to the menu -- the service to the attention to detail, we were wowed and amazed. We had the pleasure of having Dan at our service, an absolutely delightful person to chat with and so very knowledgeable when it came to every sip and morsel we had over the course of our dinner. Impeccable service and would absolutely request him again. If you are on the fence about going to the Dining Room at Castle Hill, just hit "confirm reservation" already -- you will not be disappointed!

    The food pairings were exceptionally good! The wine was delicious, and our various servers were all very attentive and gave excellent descriptions of what we were about to enjoy. The only downside is that other diners were extremely loud when conversing with their friends. This detracted from our experience as we couldn't hear our own conversation. No fault of Castle Hill though.

    The food was delicious, inventive, and prepared and served perfectly. The dining room had an offering of a six course meal only. It was certainly a dining experience. This is not your average place, it is special and the price reflects that. It is not a value, but a fine dining experience for the lucky few that can sit in the dining room.

    Menu selection was not what we were hoping for... air conditioning was not working so an $800 meal for 4 people was not enjoyable in the heat. Oysters were served warm. Pretty disappointed but will say the service, as always, was amazing.

    I booked this without looking at the menu. Its a prefixed menu for $135 per person. I wouldnt of minded the price if i could of picked different foods , but you have to order what they have. I cant say if it was good or bad as we walked out. If you like caviar, duck and other foods along this line , then this place is for you. The waiter was super nice , the place is beautiful. I wish i could of gotten different items.

    The Dining Room at Castle Hill InnResponded on August 15, 2022We're so sorry to hear that this wasn't a match last night. We do our best to keep our listings up to date on both Open Table as well as our website, and try to call each reservation to confirm beforehand as well. While there are choices on each course, it is of course limited given the number of courses. We do have another restaurant that serves a more casual ala carte restaurant outdoors, but it looks like that may have been fully booked last night too.
