Residing inside the historic Agassiz Mansion at Castle Hill Inn, Aurelia is the next evolution in Castle Hill’s culinary journey – one that has been lauded as one of the best dining experiences in New England. Nestled on forty magical acres, the property has been the backdrop of memorable occasions for more than a century.

The Forbes and Relais & Chateaux restaurant, known in its original incarnation as The Dining Room at Castle Hill, offers a six-course prix fixe menu with imaginative dishes utilizing the local bounty of produce, seafood, and artisanal producers.

Aurelia’s dining rooms overlook Narragansett Bay in all its raw beauty. As the bay’s seascape and surrounding landscape change subtly with the seasons, so does Aurelia’s menu, culminating in a truly memorable experience.

    My wife and I had a dinner reservation for the Chef's tasting menu. The service, the venue, the bar, and the wine list were excellent. This review is about the food ... which unfortunately violated the cardinal sin of eating out and in our opinion just wasn't that tasty or memorable. The first red flag was in our first course of oysters. While I am sure the oysters were great ... we'll never know. They arrived at room temperature: one with caviar, one with kimchi, and one with pickled bergamot. The flavors of the garnishes completely overwhelmed what I assume was supposed to be the main ingredient in the course. This was a common theme throughout the dinner, feature ingredients obscured or overcomplicated by a (well executed) technical flourish, or paired with an ingredient that seemed unnecessarily extra (seaweed on applesauce?). If you've seen The Menu ... we got those vibes (less murder). The service, venue, and atmosphere were all terrific and what we hoped for. While we might return for an a la carte lunch, next time, we will choose another option for dinner.

    We had the six course tasting menu with wine pairing and truffles. The American Wagyu was disappointing but every other course was spectacular including the tortellini and foie gras. Best service I’ve had all year. Would return.

    We enjoyed a fantastic Anniversary dinner, this was a perfect setting and meal for a special night. We enjoyed the 6 course tasting menu plus wine pairing. The food was artfully presented and absolutely delicious. Service was outstanding, staff knowledgeable and friendly. Very pricey, but worth the memory.

    Made a reservation here for my wedding day to have dinner with my parents and now husband. We had such an amazing experience and were treated so well by the staff. They went out of their way to make our experience unique and memorable. The other diners also added to our experience, I wore my wedding dress and he wore his NAVY dress blues so we attracted plenty of congratulations and well wishes throughout the evening. Everything was lovely and every dish on the menu was exceptional! I definitely recommend this to anyone celebrating a special occasion. They went out of their way to really make our night special.
