    Loretta was our server and was amazing. She was warm and friendly and just added to the enjoyment. The food was delicious and ambience lovely. Very enjoyable afternoon after visiting one of the mansions.

    Absolutely great filet - best can remember. Deserts also excellent. But dining experience marred by too-loud music, more appropriate for a bar scene than fine dining.

    I had a reservation at 515 and no one helped us for nearly 25 minutes. Filet was dry, no asking how meal was or acknowledging my birthday or a special request for cake. Only one waitress who did her best and bartenders didn’t help at all. Beyond disappointing.

    The world’s smallest pasta servings award is now presented to The Grill at 41 North! The pasta arrives in a tiny little pile about 3 1/2” long. While tasty, we were both hungry for more food! We tried to order bread (we’ll pay for it, no problem, they were out of it!) We then ordered a Caesar salad. Rather bland, nothing special. with minuscule croutons. I would have been happy to pay a higher price for the spaghetti for a larger portion and not leave the restaurant hungry! As a side note, the restaurant is way too dark and the music, while trying to be hip, seems oddly dated.

    Over priced even for today's prices. They were out of 3 main courses. The pasta dish, Carbonara was literally 3 mouthfuls. Out of budlight, the old fashions had no fruit in it, muddled or otherwise, and double the price you would get at even a whiskey bar. We had reservations, got there 15 minutes early, sat at the bar to wait, we had to remind the host we were waiting for our table after going to find him. Sat at 625. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Reservations were set for 7:15. We were not seated until 8:00. Then we were not approached by a server until 8:20. While the food and atmosphere were great, the service was terrible.

    dont really understand why people eat here. terrible management. not locally owned. but we go for the vibe. food consistently poor. often inedible. and nobody really cares. to use the guise of ‘foodie’ doesn’t work to anyone who knows even the basics of cooking and food. get a pizza before you go. order a beer. dont think they can blow that.

    Nice atmosphere although for xmas eve would have been nice to have Holliday music. 6 out of 7 meals were good - 1 was too salty. Shrimp cocktail the best ever! Totally enjoyed the 50% off all bottles of wine. Wait staff seemed a bot short handed for the evening. Overall was great we didn’t have to shop, cook, or clean up.

    I am terrible about writing reviews, and it honestly pains me to write this. Girls weekend, I was traveling with 2 best friends from childhood that I have not seen in decades. We went to the mooring the night before, where both the food and service was incredible. We were really excited to try this restaurant- read great reviews and were thrilled to get a reservation. The experience I had was truly lacking on so many levels. First of all, at a restaurant where you charge $62 for steak, is it necessary to charge for bread? I think it’s crazy, but ok, the bread was tasty. We ordered a bottle of Caymus, which I love. I went with the special… rosemary shrimp and risotto. Big mistake. My food was awful. Maybe they bought too much, and needed to get rid of excess shrimp that was close to its end date. It was coated in seasoning and overcooked, the risotto was hard, clearly not cooked enough. No one asked how my food was, it sat in front of me, barely touched. Inedible. My one friend said the steak she ordered was good. They mistakenly gave us the table next to ours bill by mistake, we laughed when we saw it was $985, and asked for the correct bill. We paid the bill, split it 3 ways, and left. For the record, our server was very sweet. The worst part of the experience came later that evening. 2 hours later, I received a phone call from the manager. They reconciled the bill, and claimed that they were $100 short. My one friend paid her bill, and then asked for them to break a $100 bill to leave a cash tip. They accused her of not paying the bill, though she had left cash to cover the bill, plus a tip. It really was a huge downer to the evening- and made the whole experience very awkward. They were a disorganized mess, to say the least- certainly not a place that should be serving $50+ entrees. This would not be a place I would recommend.

    We were excited for this meal. The appetizers (carrot ginger soup and smoked salmon w/potato pancakes) were superb. The entrees were adequate, though not excellent. The half chicken was well over-seasoned -- I love lots of garlic or lots of salt, but both together is too one-note and dominant. The service was cheery, but slow and a bit disorganized. For the money, the overall quality of the experience could have been a little higher.

    Booked a table to be able to see the boat parade. Parade was cancelled and dinner was amazing. I had the pork chop with Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. Very very good. The signature drink is the Newport. Very tasty. We will be back.

    Hotel Forty-One North is a sophisticated boutique hotel nestled on the Newport Rhode Island waterfront along Thames Street. The perfect time to go is Thanksgiving when there are few visitors and mostly locals like us. Newport is deserted now and the stores are shut down for Thanksgiving but it is a wonderful time to explore Newport without the crowds. The restaurant art Forty 1 North is fabulous, chic and the services is top notch. The food was solid but the salmon was overcooked a bit but paired well with sweet potatoes and crispy broccoli. The views are spectacular and the music created a hum of noise that made a less than crowded room feel full. We love the hotel (the rooms are lush) and the vibe is cool. Prices triple in the summer so book your reservations early. Lots of options at this location to shop, sightsee, people watch of nestle alone with the Newport Harbor at your feet and everything you need or absolute solitude if you like.

    Always a great time at The Grill ! Christina gave us her personal recommendations and was such a light, amazing service! When we walked in, we mentioned the heat was very high and asked if there was any way to lower it. Ramsford took care of us right away and made us much more comfortable! Can’t wait to come back :)

    If you’ve been to 41 N it goes without saying that the decor is probably the best in Newport. We were seated outside on the deck railing looking out over the lower patio and marina - fabulous! This is why people come to Newport. We had burgers and a side of the Brussels sprouts. Food was out of this world. Servers were on point but could have been a little more polished.

    Met with some friends for lunch. Quiet day not many people. We had the Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes as a share dish. Excellent. I had the salmon, so delicious. My wife got the burger and our friends had the chicken with panzarilla. I probably butchered the spelling g but it was delicious. .

    I expect to pay a lot for a meal on the waterfront in Newport and that's fine, if the meal is good. But $30. for a curried cauliflower entree which was the size of my fist was nothing special and the spring vegetables that were supposed to come with it were missing. The menu is limited and not very exciting. If you're looking for a vibrant bar scene & seated near a window then this might be the place for you, but the bar creates a lot of noise for dining. Service was mediocre at best. We'll stick with other Newport waterfront dining establishments.

    We had the best meals we’ve ever eaten. We ordered a few rounds of drinks and each one was as refreshing as the last. The curried cauliflower was seasoned beautifully, the pork chop was cooked to perfection, and the side of Brussels sprouts were crispy and delicious. You could taste the care and passion that the chefs put into each dish.

    We will never go back. Made res thru OpenTable for indoor seating but we were brought onto the patio despite requesting to be switched - twice. I do not like eating a meal in my coat. The table we were brought to was a high top at the bar - we are here for dinner, not drinks and apps. Our dinner plates barely fit on the table and we constantly had to adjust the layout to accommodate everything. One of the worst parts: I ordered the filet ($56 without sides) and it was served black. It was crispy and the one bite I tried flaked into my mouth. Tasted like charcoal. Absolutely not how I ordered it. The restaurant did replace, thankfully. There was no comp on the bill for this - not even partial. We also ordered the charcuterie and cheese board (about $32) and it was forgettable. Avoid this place. I will never return and will not recommend to anyone. $320-something waste. So many other options in Newport - at all price points - that are leagues above this.

    Being right on the water this restaurant had an incredible view and the food was good but lacked any depth of menu and the presentation of the meal, which in my case was tuna steak, was simply a sliced piece of tuna in the middle of a plate with no garnish no vegetables nothing. It looked very spartan and not lavish, which the setting would suggest as well as the price. Stayed the weekend in the hotels grand suite and very much enjoyed spending time on the deck but the restaurant overall was sadly disappointing.

    I’ll start by saying the food was good. We split the caesar salad, my husband had the bucatini and I had the half chicken and brussel sprouts. My husband had a glass of wine. It was $110 and my husband left hungry. His dish was the equivalent of 4 bites of pasta for $22 so I shared mine with him. When he ordered, the server didn’t tell us the portion was small, it seemed like a second course pasta serving although was not labeled as such on the menu and for the price point, we assumed it was a full portion. After our first interaction with the server when I didn’t order a drink, she became less attentive. Our waters ran out and she came over awhile later asking if we wanted more - the water is free, just assume we want it and keep the glasses full - I thought that was the standard. All in all, the value wasn’t there and we’ll never go back. There are so many other places in Newport where the food is just as good and you get the amount of food that you pay for.
