We came in from the cold for lunch to find an empty dinning room. We had very good clam chowder, but at $18 for a moderate size bowl, way overpriced! You can get the same thing for half the price all over Newport. Good food, but I really wouldn't recommend to a friend.

BEAUTIFUL restaurant! Lovely setting for a romantic meal, special occasion or just for a wonderful dining experience .
My only ask is that they reconsider charging $18 for a CUP of New England Clam Chowder- ouch, that hurt!

Had an excellent Christmas dinner at the Vanderbilt Grill. Everything about it was top-notch: the food, the service (especially the service), the ambiance, the live music, the cocktails. All made for a truly memorable evening. We'll definitely return.

Saturday night reservations, 6:15p. Upon being seated we were informed that the N.Y. Strip would not be available as they were out of it! Leaving only Lamb Chops the only meat entree on the menu (besides a hamburger). Cocktails took a loooooong time to arrive. The ambiance was very nice, pianist/singer was also enjoyable. Would considering trying a brunch in the spring when outdoor seating is available. Overall was not impressed.
