Although we didn't stay at the Inn because of the unavailability, we did manage to get a reservation for dinner. The views are truly amazing and the valet staff was on point. It's unfortunate that I cannot say the same about our waiter, service and the food. The service extremely slow, the food was not nearly as good as you... More

If you're in Newport, this is a CANT MISS. Get there early, commandeer a couple of Adirondack chairs on the lawn for sunset. Dinner inside is formal and well worth the price. 5 star food and service. Dining also available outside on the patio although can get a little windy. Great bar if your not in the mood for full... More

The food was decadent and the service flawless. Very highend and be prepared to eat eat eat. It's a pre-fix menu with about 7 courses or so! Well worth it!

Dining or drinking at the Inn at Castle Hill is an experience you should have if you visit Newport. Located up on a rocky point overlooking the Newport Harbor the Inn is a beautiful old house with a couple of dining rooms and two bars. The outside bar is the best place to eat lunch or have drink if you... More

Nestled on the corner of the peninsula, this restaurant and hotel is a must do after touring historic ocean drive. Outdoor seating overlooking the water. Must do the calamari. Fresh farmed locally served with banana peppers and charred lemon. Fluke and lobster étouffée reminiscent of Louisiana.

Thank you kindly for your positive review of your meal here. Chef Karsten hails from Louisiana, so every once in a while some of those dishes (etouffee) get paired up with wonderful New England seafood. Hope to see you again soon, Anthony More

The view from the dining area, or the lawn, is spectacular and the food is amazing. If $18 for a burger doesn't seem excessive, then I highly recommend Castle Hill. The atmosphere and view, paired with really fresh and delicious food, makes up for the prices. Try the blueberry lemonade, you won't regret it.

Thank you so much for dining with us at The Lawn at Castle Hill. That blueberry lemonade has been our #1 selling signature cocktail for a few years running now, glad to hear it is still turning heads! Thanks for the review, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. More

We arrived without reservations on a Saturday afternoon and were told the wait time was over an hour, but, we could get drinks and appetizers on the lawn in the meantime. What a lovely spot to enjoy the views while shipping a cocktail or glass of wine! The sailboats pass close by and the lawn chairs are so relaxing to... More

Thank you so much for coming to join us, and for your patience with the long wait for a table. Some times on the most beautiful days the wait can definitely exceed one hour, but we always suggest enjoying the grounds (and cocktails) and taking in the sights before or after your meal anyway. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, we... More

I love Relais & Chateaux properties... and Castle Hill did not disappoint. They delivered on the five C's no problem. We got there just as the sun was setting and sat in the front room with beautiful views over the bay. Regina was our waitress and she couldn't have been more fantastic. She paid attention to our needs, especially those... More

If you are looking for a wonderful restaurant with great service, look no further. Whether at the bar or dining outside, you just can't top the Castle Hill Inn. We drive two hours to enjoy the experience and a view that will take your breath away no matter how many times you visit. It's a one day vacation in paradise.

Everything was wonderful as always at Castle Hill. My friend and I wanted to watch the big rain storm on the water and Castle Hill was the perfect location.
