They had there own parking lot and attendant which is helpful in Newport. The interior was nice, the waitstaff was informative and spontaneous without being a burden. The food was great and abundant yet priced as... More

Don't go to the Canfield House for a holiday dinner unless you are very clear with your expectations and their menu options for that day. We made a 2:00 reservation for our family expecting to dine off their lovely menu we viewed on their website. However upon arrival we saw a brunch buffet in place and asked if we were... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Canfield House. Live music playing in the foyer, bottle of wine, and a fantastic meal. Our hostess and waiter were extremely friendly and made our night special. An elegant, comfortable location.

My fish was dry, so much so that I could hardly swallow it. The staff were gracious in offering to replace it with Chicken Portabella, which was tasty, but nothing exceptional. The room, formerly a casino, is certainly beautiful, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is somewhat stodgy.

Loved everything about this place. Had its own parking (a huge plus since parking is impossible, or expensive), and the deck where we ate since we had our dog with us was really nice! Server brought a dish of water for the dog, and some treats. I had an amazing steak that was cooked exactly how I'd asked. Not one... More

Spent the weekend in Newport and stumbled on this great restaurant. I very seldom log on to review any business but this restaurant deserves a shout out. We had made phone reservation and we were met at the front desk by Maggie. Our server as well as Maggie were very pleasant and willing to share the interesting history of the... More
