First time I have ever written a review of any restaurant. We recently had lunch here. It happened to be restaurant week. We chose from the restaurant week menu which was extremely limited compared to the other Newport restaurants participating. I chose pumpkin risotto which was good but comprised of about about 1/2 cup of risotto. Another person in my party had a smoked chicken sandwich which ended up being deli meat with barely cooked French Fries. Beautiful view from the restaurant but very little ambiance. There were 8 people in the restaurant and the service was extremely slow. Very disappointing!

We went here for our anniversary dinner and it was great! Absolutely beautiful space, on the water, and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend for an upscale Newport dinner!

Once again, 41 N has delivered commensurate with a top tier restaurant. Despite the fact that we dined on a "restaurant week" menu which are often less that exciting, everything was of the highest quality and absolutely wonderful. Keep up the good work because your quickly becoming our "special event" place in Newport!!

Food was amazing. Our server was excellent, did a fantastic job in suggesting choices for us. Ambiance was warm and cozy. It's a Newport favorite of ours.

Beautiful restaurant with gorgeous water views and excellent food. The service was weird, seemed like the hostess was suddenly asked to waitress this day. There were only 3 groups at this time and we were all seated right next to each other despite having plenty of space available. She disappeared for long periods of time. Our plates were cleared and 10 minutes went by before we had to ask the bartender to find her for our check. Again, it’s a fantastic restaurant just needs some service training.

Really great food and service in a beautiful setting. Bartenders are also great, making a Sazerac the right way. Food and drinks are pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

The food, service, and overall experience spectacular. They outdid themselves and helped us celebrate a special event. Joe took care of everything as well as the rest of the wait staff. The food was amazing. The views the best on the harbor.

My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary. We raved about the food and loved the ambiance. The chef was even kind enough to fulfill our dessert request. However, we felt service from our waitress was lacking a bit. She seemed scattered and not accessible. We would go back for the food and can't wait to sit outside!

The steak was the best I’ve had in Rhode Island ALL YEAR! The manager, Mathew, was sensitive to my friend’s need, and our waitress, Michelle was a joy to visit with. We weren’t hurried and all the food was delicious. My one complaint is the $30 parking fee! I would think the local restaurants want to encourage the residents to come in the off-season of Newport to help support the restaurant thru the slower winter months.

We had a reservation and showed up earlier than our reservation. We expected to wait and planned on sitting at the bar, until we saw about 10-12 empty tables. The hostess said she could not seat us and to come back at our reservation time. We sat at the bar and saw none of the tables fill, so about 10 minutes before our reservation time we asked if we could be seated since we have been waiting 20 minutes and no tables were filling. The woman told us she will not seat us before our time and to come back in 10 minutes. Luckily, when we eventually sat down we had a nice waitress. The food was good, not many options for someone who does not like seafood but thats ok. I’d probably come here for lunch, its kind of casual for dinner.

Food was just okay. Service was inconsistent. Noise level was unbearable as we sat outside next to a very loud bar. I would not recommend for a dinner date. Maybe with a group of friends who are looking to party.

In town for a few days with the bride. We stopped in for dinner with a view and this place delivers. Nice ambiance and the views are amazing. Service is friendly and courteous. The portions are limited and you leave satisfied but hungry, if that makes senses.

The food we had was very good, but the prices were very high. The servers had an attitude about them that was less than welcoming. The thing that REALLY bothered me was that parking at the hotel/restaurant was $30 and no validation for the 1 1/2 hour dinner. We will not be back.

The location is perfect! We enjoyed everything except the waitress. She seemed annoyed to be working there and not friendly. We were all in great moods and celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday and the contrast with the waitress’ attitude came off rude.

Food was good but menu selection was average. Server was good but didn’t check on us. Had to wave her over to order more drinks. Views are amazing and that would be the reason we return.

Pricey, but the food, service and outdoor atmosphere were A+. Wonderful. The only drawback was they charged $30 to park for lunch in their lot. Ridiculous even for a touristy area. Park elsewhere and walk over.

The food was good - the bar service was attentive. The portions where a little on the small side. The food was prepared excellent but if your looking for value this is not the spot. Great place for friends to get together or date night with the wife/girlfriend. Will definitely come back.

we ate outside on the deck, which was very nice. The food was just ok.
I had the rack of lamb, which was $50+ and was not worth it. Under cooked and too much fat. By the time I was done cutting off the fat, I had about 5 forks of meat. Not worth the price by no means.
Took over an 1.5 hours to get our food. Waitress had too many tables. Ordered a 2nd round of drinks that never came until we caught her and ordered them again.
Was a bit cold on the deck so we asked for a gas heater. They did not have enough propane tanks for the amount of heaters they had, so we waited almost 1 hour for a heater and finally got one.
This place was beautiful BUT it was not worth the $575 I spent to eat there for 4 people.
Also, vale parking for dinner was $30, same amount as they were charging their overnight guests. Really, $30 for 2.5 hours?? and the parking lot was not even full at the time of arrival or departure.

Though the service was a little slow the food is fantastic and the view is spectacular. Highly advise going during sunset. The food is pricy, but very good and the giant chess set and area around that make it a surprisingly good place to take kids who can entertain themselves (above a certain age of course) while you. An enjoy a cocktail

It was nice in that we got to see fireworks and we were right in the marina but the food wasn't that great and the service was fine. Nothing to write home about.
