My wife and I were there for our anniversary, everything about Castle Hill Inn was fantastic. The service, the view and especially the food.
I reserved a dinner at this restaurant and noted that it was for our anniversary celebration. I also called to confirm if they received the note. Upon check-in, we were seated at one of three dining rooms, of which was the worst one. They seated us in the back corner with no sunlight. I was completely shocked at how unthoughtful the seating arrangements were coordinated. From prior experiences, whenever I booked a reservation with a special occasion in New York, we've always been catered to each occasion and was never let down before. However, this was the first time where I felt the celebration was not taken into consideration.
We had an amazing dinner on Friday evening. The service was outstanding. Our wait staff was very attentive without ever being intrusive. The pace of the service was very good and we were able to relax and enjoy a very leisurely dinner. The dinner choices were varied, creative and delicious. We loved the additional appetizer tasting and the palate cleanser in between courses as well. The outside of the inn is undergoing construction and outside our window was a large crane. The waitress asked if we would like to have our table moved, but as it was not in our direct line of sight we declined. While pricey, our meal and evening were wonderful. We would highly recommend the Dining Room at Castle Hill for your special occasion!
Lovely birthday dinner celebration. 3 course tasting menu was just perfect!!
One of the best meals I’ve had! I will definitely be back soon.
Our server Caitlin was very attentive. We had a nice table overlooking the West Bay and the Point Judith Lighthouse. We enjoyed nice appetizers (steak tartare and asparagus) then had the dual beef followed by a chocolate incased mousse and ice cream . Food was excellent as were the views and service.
Elegant restaurant in exquisite setting. Exceptional food, beautifully presented....and professional staff. 5 star+. 2 thumbs up. A definite 10. Highly recommended!
I have heard so many good reviews and that the sunset view was lovely. They called the day before to confirm my reservation and explain their menu. Very nice.
All staff we encountered were professional. The only disappointment was the table, our view was to the parking lot! I asked if we could change our table. They were gracious enough to say yes. We happily move. But the next table had a view of the back of the kitchen. I mentioned to my husband that this view was worse.
The host heard and said there may be a table in the Sunset room. We moved a third time, but it was worth it. My poor husband. Lol!
As usual, Newport Restaurant Group service, menu, cocktails, ambiance were all in play on the evening of our dinner. Beautiful sunset, came in through the Drive, to take advantage of those coastal views. Our dinner was superb.
Incredible food, impeccable service. It was the perfect dining experience!
Excellent meal!!! We only wish that we had a table in the main dining room overlooking the ocean.
Fantastic, cannot wait to return!
Excellent food, service and ambiance. First class all the way.
Excellent service and memorable culinary choices are the norm here at Castle Hill. The dining room was busy but not crowded last Thursday evening; dinner is fine dining - never rushed. The staff , working as a team, are knowledgeable and helpful in guiding you through your courses. The chef oversees beautiful presentations, truly artistic masterpieces that delight the senses. Special thanks to Caitlin for making this a wonderful Newport experience - we will return!
This is top of the line dining! We brought my parents here for a special occasion. The staff to table ratio is excellent; you get just the right amount of attention; without being intrusive. The extra touches - little treats between courses is great and makes it feel extra special and very indulgent if you want to make someone feel extra special. Great bar too if you want to get there a little early for a cocktail.
This is a very special restaurant. Beautiful location, perfect service, amazing food. Have a drink on the lawn first, enjoy the ocean and the view. The only thing bad you can say about this restaurant.................It is not cheap to eat there. Special occasions, business dinner, or fine if money is no object in your life.
Exceptional; cuisine was amazing, service was perfection, & atmosphere is gorgeous.
a must.since you seeing how the rich lived, its only appropriate for you to experience how the ruich ate.cant say enough about the location,service, and food.its pricey.but worth it.
It was wonderful and we will be back. I would recommend they speed up slightly between courses.
Outstanding dining experience in every way!
World class food in a unique location by the Sea in beautiful Newport!
Absolutely wonderful dining experience. The food was very creative and tasty. The service was very good and the servers were very knowledgeable in regards to the menu and wine selection. Would highly recommend, and the view of the ocean was great as well.
Dining at Castle Hill NEVER disappoints. The attentive service, succulent and varied food options and outstanding views provide diners with a memorable experience. Thank you! 5 stars
Amazing food with perfect paired wine. Best birthday meal ever! Expert staff, detail oriented, great food, beautiful view.
Always a scenic place to eat. The service is very attentive and the house is quite beautiful with lots of woodwork and antiques. The chef does amazing things with fairly standard American food, including local produce. The presentation was artistic and delicious. Always our favorite place for marking special occasions!
We are only able to come to Newport a few times a year but Castle Hill is always on our list when in town.
Food service ambience they have the whole package
Need to go there more often
Wonderful attentive service. Very special evening for my son and me.
We had a blast. The food was impeccable, great service, and a beautiful atmosphere. We appreciated that the servers took their time between each course, instead of rushing to turn tables like other restaurants do! Thanks for such a nice night.
Most amazing service. The staff should be commended. If you want to feel like royalty- dine here. The only negative was the decor- definitely worn. Otherwise would have given 5 stars.
Top notch dining experience and wonderful attentive staff
The food is very good but the real treat is in the service. The service is as close to perfection as I've ever experienced.
Top notch restaurant. One course was better than the next. The service was very professional and knowledgeable with enthusiasm. A must for special occasions.
Great place, menu was great, impeccable service and ambience. Fantastic wine list. Can’t wait to go back.
As always, one of the finest dining experiences in the US.
Valentines Dinner- everything was excellent and top notch! Zero complaints!
Magnificently prepared food with a wait staff that pays great attention to detail without being intrusive
It's always been wonderful but the selections on this visit were exceptional
We had a wonderful NYE anniversary dinner. Service was very good, as was the ambiance. The restaurant offered a special 5 course NYE tasting menu for all patrons. Veggie, branzino and beef dishes were excellent. For another dish I went the sausage route while my husband went for the lobster and shrimp, the lobster and shrimp was by far the winner, wasn't too into the sausage and lentils dish. For dessert the ice cream plate was good but the poach pear dish and cookie was just ok. Chocolates and a parting gift of jam at the end were a nice touch. Overall, a great meal and an excellent spot to celebrate a special occasion.
Atmosphere is upscale (there's a dress code), service was attentive, actually too fussy for my taste. Menu was prix fixe only, which was an unpleasant surprise. Food was French style and generally good, though the Israeli couscous that came with my swordfish entree was a bit undercooked. My main complaint is the price. Though we chose the least expensive option (three-course) and did not splurge on drinks, once you add tax, tip etc. it still came out to more than $100 per person, which is much more than what I feel the experience was worth. It would also have been nice to have more flexibility -- not all of us wanted dessert, for example, but with the prix fixe menu you don't have a choice.
