    Where to begin. We were shown our table, which was in a great spot to view the port, this was the only decent aspect about this experience. We explained to the waitress that this was a special night for us. We were NOT looking to be rushed, maybe we’d put an appetizer in now, and our meal later. We were told we could not do that, that the chef wants the whole order in and we could then request when our entree goes in. Strike one, rushed to pick meal just put appetizer in. Appetizer comes, we are then asked three times over the course of 20mins if we want to have the entrees cooked - “it will take awhile”. Strike two - rushing me to put in entree Meals come very quickly. Which makes me wonder if they were ever timed. However, they forgot to cook the sides. Strike three - sides were forgotten, chicken was dried out and tasteless. They removed the sides from the bill. But they already lost on the rushing us during a dead evening and dried out chicken. BOTTOM LINE: nice view, mediocre food, poor service.

    Will not go back again the place is beautiful. But never mention about the parking fee 20$. Went for our Father’s Day reservation waited for 25 minutes for the our waitress but no one came to our table. The food looks good online but only few option on their menu. Not kid friendly. Food is pricey and we are willing to pay. But we ended up leaving. Not waiting for a expensive restaurant with a bad service and parking fee. Maybe because we are not so fancy looking hahaha just sayin that’s probably why no one even bother to check in on our table 😂.

    I would have liked to have rated this place 3.5, but rounded up because there was more food than bad about my dining experience. Service was prompt and friendly. We sat outside in the back behind the tent and the view was really lovely. They allow dogs on their patio and I truly appreciate that. My main criticism is that I think the food was pretty subpar considering the prices here (and I have no issues with the prices - they are comparable at nice restaurants in Newport - I just don’t think the quality was in line with the prices). We had the oysters which were fresh and tasted just fine. We also had the butter lettuce salad. It was very sparsely dressed, there were a lot of the bitter/center pieces in the salad, and the bacon was also sparse and a bit over cooked. We split the burger and I’m not sure what it was about the taste, but it was off. The consistency look almost like a steak - very tightly packed. I couldn’t tell it was ground beef if that makes sense. The meat tasted almost dry aged to me, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t. I certainly don’t think the meat was bad or anything like that, I just think the meat or blend they use tasted odd. Fries were good. Decent atmosphere. Food could be better.

    The food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent. We sat outside and it was a little chilly the night we went, but they had heaters which was great. You will spend a small fortune on drinks if your planning to stay for more than just dinner. Overall it was great and we will definitely be back. Great vibes for date night.

    I have been going to 41 North pretty consistently over the years and am always pleased. This experience was quite different, though. Most of my friends and I used to work in the food industry and are usually easy to please.. but this was, kinda rough. My brother and his girlfriend had to send both their drinks back.. and for my brother to not be able to drink his cocktail, well.. it must have been bad. Another friend order Gnochhi Bolognese ... it was spiral pasta.. and the server did not know that it wasn't Gnocchi and even confirmed that it was.. we are all italian, it was not Gnocchi. We ordered a side of potatoes and they looked like they had been launched from a missile on Mars 763 years ago.. they were dangerous. I'll still come back for drinks and seafood during the day, but I'm probably skipping dinner here. I'll stick to Gurneys and the Moorring.

    The restaurant is offensively expensive. Had the portions been even mildly substantial, it would have been ok. The fish was overcooked and the presentation was underwhelming. We paid similar prices at Legal Seafood at Boston Logan Airport today. The food was higher quality and had better sized portions. The server was doing hee best, but was visibly overwhelmed. My husband was very cold outside. The heating lamp did not get lit until much later in our meal. This dinner was to celebrate our son's graduation from Brown University and it was a huge disappointment. Move along, Newport visitors.

    Loved the seafood pasta. Great view. Fun atmosphere. Probably the best experience in town for a nice dinner out because less of a cattle call compared to the other places on the water. In other words, a bit more exclusive.

    Made reservation and specifically selected indoor seating. Got to restaurant and was told there was a function in the main dining room and we were told we’d have to sit outside in a tented patio seating around a bar. Spent $1500 on dinner for four and the food was very good, but not being told of this issue in advance and given the chance to make a different reservation some place else was unacceptable. Probably won’t go back.

    Very disappointed this evening. Horrible value for the $, steak at $61 came with NOTHING, cooked rare when medium was requested. Filet at similar price arrived rare when medium well was requested. They charge $6 just for a sauce on the side for the steaks! Stale rolls, poor response when we complained about the way steak and filet were cooked. Had to send filet back TWICE and manager could have cared less and told us he would send us dessert, walked away and never apologized. We don’t eat dessert and they offered nothing until we requested they take at least the filet off the check. Won’t be going back.

    We made a reservation for brunch and nowhere in the reservations did it say that brunch on a Sunday at 12:00 was over and you could on,y have the lunch menu and eggs Benedict was the on,y brunch item being served. Breakfast ends at twelve and so does all the typical Sunday Brunch items. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! Our waitress was very nice and tried to apologize for the lack of clarification on the website but there was nothing else she could do. We came especially for brunch paid 20$ to park in your lot when we were dining in your restaurant just kind of disappointed all the way around. There are far to many other great spots with more consistency that we would spend a Sunday afternoon.
