We've been going to the Canfield House for several years and it never disappoints. The Gilded Age setting of the old casino is the perfect setting for dining on great food in a relaxed atmosphere. Staff is well trained and friendly. And did I say that we love the food? If you're in Newport and want a fine meal, this... More

We went here for dinner, after watching tennis all afternoon. We never ate lunch. We went for the $35 special. Yes it's true. On week nights, two entrees and one bottle of wine for $35. I ordered pork shank on beans. My husband ordered pasta with sausage. Both were very tasty. Portions were large. The wine caught up to us... More

The interior in the restaurant, is a nice period piece. The food is traditional American Cuisine, which was well prepared. Service was quite good and the price in our opinion was reasonable. I disagree with the poster who suggested that it was superior to anything in NYC, having eaten in some excellent restaurants in Europe as well as NYC, the... More

Pricey but great food in an old mansion. Staff was very nice. Not a "stuffy" restaurant. We ordered appetizers for dinner because most restaurants serve way too much food for their entrees.

The food was delicious. We arrived early for our reservation and they easily accommodated us. They even allowed us to change to outdoor dining. We would return again.

This was my 2nd time at the Canfield and it was as good if not better the second time around. Mid-week they have $35 promotion. You get two entrees plus a bottle of white or red wine for $35 total NOT each! It's and incredible deal and the food is excellent. I had the pork shank and it was awesome!... More
