We live 35 mins away from Newport. Been there a thousand times for lunch & dinner. However never to the Canfield House. Our loss ! What a terrific find-will now make it a top choice. Great location within walking distance of many attractions including waterfront. (Tennis Hall of Fame,Mansions, Cliffwalk, beach,harbor etc.)

My husband and I and our two dear friends were lucky enough to get reservations at the beautiful, historic Canfield House Saturday night. We were visiting Newport during Restaurant Week. The menu reflected the gourmet meals available and we weren't disappointed. Chris and Stephanie were our servers - they were efficient, helpful, and friendly. The meals were delicious! For starters... More

A beautiful room in which you dine in. Unfortunately the food was average at best. The service was good but the food was bland and somewhat unappealing. The staff was helpful but the kitchen was par. Maybe they were just having an off night.

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
