Out of an abundance of caution, we’ve elected to close the restaurant until further notice. As soon as it is safe and prudent to do so, we’ll re-open our doors and look forward to welcoming you back then. Please visit The Lawn at Castle Hill's Open Table site for booking outdoor reservations in the interim.

The view is spectacular, the food & service excellent. It was a little pricey especially the paired wine & food menu. The wine portion was only 1.5 ounces. We opted not to have that we choose the 3 course dinner at $85 pp.

Excellent service. Fantastic ambiance. However the 85 dollar prefix price was way overpriced. That 85 was without drinks. When I booked, I thought the prefixed price was 35 which is what is was worth .
Go to bar which is excellent and order from the bar menu.

The dinning room was super romantic and classy. The wine was amazing!! The server’s/service was amazing, very knowledgeable and elegant. But our steak wasn’t cooked correctly and for the price of the meal (500$ for 2 people) you’d hope they would cook it perfectly.

This was, by far, the best meal I've had in a while. Attentive service, great food, and overall, a lovely experience. Although their cocktails were rather average, the wine list was impressive.

Our waiter Dan was excellent, he helped us navigate thru our 5 course tasting menu, with wine pairings. He was very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine and was extremely friendly. The food was delicious and the presentations were artful and beautiful. I would definitely recommend a visit to this beautiful and charming restaurant.

Everything from the ambulance to the service was wonderful. A little cool in the dining room to stop the night but once it filled up it was better!
Would go again and enjoy a sunset!

An excellent choice for a special occasion. My wife and I had dinner at The Dining Room during Christmas Eve and we had an amazing dining experience. Tasty foods and beautiful presentation of dishes. Excellent ingredient quality, very flavorful too. The wine list is extensive, the cocktails are delicious (the painkiller is to die for), the service is impeccable. Warm, cozy and upscale atmosphere in the winter - more casual and upbeat in the summer with a younger crowd. The highlight of our meal the 24th was the squash agnolotti and the seared scallops. We received gingerbread cookies at our departure which were very tasty and very cute! I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit - hopefully staying at the Inn this time!
