My wife and I had been to the grill before and loved it so we decided to invite friends to meet us there for a wonderful evening. We had a 7:15 reservation but got there a half hour early to enjoy the fireplace near the bar. My wife went to the bar to get a drink menu and was pretty much ignored. I went up and was able to get one and ordered drinks. Our friends arrived and I went back to the bar to order drinks for them. I ordered one but they did not have the other so I said I would be right back with the other drink order. When I cam back I was ignored for 10 minutes and when the gal finally came back it was 7:15 so we cancelled our order to be seated. I went to check in and was told the table would be ready in a minute. A half hour later we were finally seated. The dining room was so loud we could barely hear each other and we had a hard time hearing the waitress and she had a hard time hearing us. The noise was coming from one table with very loud young women. Most people in the restaurant were turning and staring at the loud table each time a loud roar would come from it. The bread came when we were finishing the appetizer course and desert came while some of us were still eating the entrees.

I was so disappointed in the management for not asking the table of women to be quieter. This is a relatively expensive restaurant in a beautiful hotel. I am not sure what changed since the last time we were there but the service, wait, and noise level were horrible.

Fantastic anniversary meal. Chef Terrence is a very talented and thoughtful chef. The steaks were better than any steakhouse and the seafood dishes with lobster amazing. The food was cooked to perfection and wine pairings fabulous. The staff was very attentive but not instrusive.

We were very disappointed with our experience at The Grill at 41 North. We were unexpectedly seated outside on a cool night, and the one space heater for our party of 8 was insufficient (and kept shutting off throughout the meal). The service was terrible - long waits, odd intermittent setting and removal of silverware/glasses throughout, and incorrect wine servings. Lastly, we were celebrating a birthday in our party and asked for a few slices of cake, one with a candle, to come out for dessert and surprise the birthday girl. Well, a few slices of cake came out, but the one with the candle came out several minutes after the others, so the surprise was blown.

The quality of the food was excellent, but the poor service made for a negative overall experience. We will not be back.

The service was really poor. They couldn't take orders correctly, served food incorrectly and often abandoned us for thirty minutes. While the food was great, I think we can't go back because of the service. Plus there was an undrinkable glass of wine.

The service started out terrible with needing to ask for a server after 15-20 minutes of being seated. When she finally came over she was unfriendly.

One of the managers ended up getting our drink order and handling our table the rest of the evening. He more than made up for the delayed attention and took care of us the rest of the evening. It's not about the initial issue...it's all about how it's addressed moving forward. In this case, it was top notch.

The food was awesome as expected.

Very expensive. thats ok, but we ate on the deck and no one could see their food by the time it arrived. Average cuisine at best. Waiter missed a couple things we asked for, so service was not great for the prices.
Normally, we don't care what the cost is, but $17 for a glass of mediocre chardonnay is crazy. I do not recommend this for most folks.

The food was ok but not great. The portions were very small, except the steaks, which were very large. The "surf and turf" had a good-sized filet mignon and a tiny spoonful of lobster. Although I had the impression that the wait-staff was well-intentioned, the service was very slow and for periods of time we almost felt they had forgotten about us (we were a party of 6 - not easy to lose).

We waited over 40 min to be seated, despite having a reservation and the hostess was very rude about it. Then we were seated at our table and there was no server to be found. We couldn't even put in drink orders. I was very disappointed by the experience. I would expect better service for the prices they charge. It was worst dining experience in Newport ever and we have been many times.
