My wife and another couple had dinner the night before the Newport Marathon. It was quite crowded, as the restaurant was handling a substantial private affair at the same time. We had no trouble being seated (we had a reservation), and the room is really quite interesting. The Canfield House has quite a history, as it once housed a casino.... More

Visited Newport, RI this past September and was thrilled with The Canfield House for dinner. The restaurant was in a house built in the 1800s and it felt like I was dining in a mini-mansion. The tables with white tablecloths, the fireplace in every room, the waiter who was very helpful with the menu choices all made up for a... More

There is a large onsite parking lot, a real plus in Newport where parking is at a premium. The restaurant is in a house built in the 1860s, and used as a casino at one time. They offer a special on Tuesday-Thursday featuring two entrees and a bottle of red or white wine at an outstanding price. The wine is... More

And met our expectations. We were staying at Victorian Ladies B&B two blocks away and asked for recommendations. The innkeeper without hesitation mentioned to go here for the Tuesday special, which we did. You would think that for two entrees and a bottle of wine that there would be some sort of compromise. If there was, we did not see... More

Never had anything like it before. Service was above wonderful, personable Timely, friendly. This was a group of 40 people from a bus trip, first night in Newport they made everyone feel comfortable, provided a copy of the history of the building, accommodated special needs. Nothing to dislike

This restaurant has lovely decor and excellent food. My husband and I were in Newport for a long weekend and happened to walk past the Canfield on our way to our B&B. Our innkeeper highly recommended it and we were impressed with the beautiful decor, excellent food and service. In fact, we liked it so much we ate there three... More

We've had wonderful meals here in the past. I think we made a mistake going for the special week night meal deal. Won't do that again. We did have appetizers off the regular menu which were great - scallops with caprese salad and grilled rib lamb chops.

Housed in a Victorian home that once belonged to Richard Canfield, "The Prince of Gamblers", is a gem of a restaurant. Our little Bichon dog was welcomed to join us in their lively outdoor area. Our waitress and bartender, Denise went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. She suggested we take advantage of their wine and dine... More
