The restaurant sits on a bluff affording wonderful vistas. Great place to gather with friends for drinks and good food. Watching the boats go by really put you in a peaceful place. Be warned the outside bar is swarming with bees. If you are the least bit scared of bees stay away. They tell you not to swat at them... More

From the required valet parking, you pay dearly for this beautiful place. We arrived at 2:30 pm for lunch and were told it would be 40 minutes. We opted to eat at the bar and it was lovely. The views of the harbor are exceptional and we saw many sailboats coming and going on this beautiful day. The food is... More

We ate our dinner outside this trip. Food was great, service excellent, but nothing could top the view of an amazing sunset!

What a amazingly beautiful spot for an Inn. On a bluff overlooking the water, with the wind gently blowing, the outdoor dining area/full-service bar, can't be beat. I enjoyed a bruschetta appetizer, that, in all honesty, was the best I've ever had. The ricotta "schmear" on the grilled Italian bread slices was beyond compare. Be warned, it's not cheap, but...

Castle Hill sits on the edge of an incredible waterfront view that is well worth the trip in itself! My husband and I dined here in the more formal dining room and truly enjoyed our experience. Service is quite formal and deliberate and our meal lived up to our expectations overall. The only negatives were more a matter of taste:... More

When in Newport for a weekend, a week, or a lifetime, drinks and appetizers while sitting on the lawn of the Inn at Castle Hill is a must. The staff is friendly and fast, and the food is meticulously prepared and well worth the prices. Time stands still while you sit and watch the sailboats pass by. Martha Stewart was... More

Stopped here for a drink after a day of sight seeing. Not a place to go if you are modest in the pocket. $25 for two drinks They were ok, to be honest I've had better. The drink list was small but the bartender was friendly. We took our drinks outside to enjoy our drinks. Beautiful. Looking out over the... More

The terrace had views of the bay and the city center to the north. It was a relaxing afternoon as we ate and watched the bay below and the blue sky above. The fresh lobster roll hit the spot. There were plenty of umbrellas providing ample shade for all. As with other outdoor venues we had to fight the bees... More

My fiance and I had a dinner reservation on Sunday night at 8:45pm. The restaurant was really busy and we weren't seated until 9:15. We both chose to do tasting menus and the food was better than we could have ever imagined. The first courses came out at a normal amount of time but we waited an hour for our... More

I can assure you that you were not forgotten about, but can guarantee that the service you experienced was... More

Yes, the food is good, and yes, the service staff is outstanding. It is hard to ask for anything more, but the Lawn dining area at Castle Hill has the best view in the United States. We've eaten here twice and each time I felt like I really hadn't come to Newport until I sat in this restaurant and watched... More
