The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.

Great atmosphere. Pleasurable dinning experience.

Servers Alex and Dan were knowledgable, efficient and extremely personable. Their personalities, combined with the menu, the atmosphere and the location, made for a pleasurable dinning experience.

For a splurge you will decide was a bargain, treat yourself to a wonderful, charming meal at the Inn at Castle Inn. I last went during a snow storm in mid-winter, when the view outside and ambiance inside were both spectacular. As was the meal. Expertly prepared, artistically presented, served by individuals with both hospitality and personality skills, this is... More

I was lucky enough to visit here with family friends on a beautiful summer's day. It's a stunning place, meticulously clean and effortlessly styled. The lawn is exquisite, watching sail boats pass by whilst we ate certainly added to the New England charm. The food was excellent as was the service. I chose a light salad and whilst I felt... More

While in NE we made our way around NPT sightseeing stopping by the Inn at Castle Hill. It was between 2-3 on a wet dreary Saturday afternoon in March. We were greeted warmly and allowed to look around. For the weather being as bad as I thought it was. There were a fair amount of customers in the dining room.... More

For splurge-worthy and memorable dining this is the place. Menu is thoughtful, items are perfectly prepared, wine list is extensive, and service is always excellent. This historic property takes dining to a new level.

My fiancé and I visited Castle Hill for Restaurant Week. Since it was my first time in Newport in about 15 years, we drove a scenic route from Bellevue Avenue to the southeastern tip of Ocean Avenue which guided us through a few miles of breathtaking views of the beachfront mansions. The Castle Hill entrance is located at the northwestern... More

Buckle up - this will take a moment .... Most restaurants, I really want to know about the food and service. This one, too ... but, as well, I wanted to learn about the beautiful home where it exists - it was a former summer home that is now both a romantic Inn and a public Dining Room/Restaurant.

Adam just made me the best martini. It us do good I am still drinking it and needed to post about it. Couple that with the view and the great staff and food and it is a great way to start the night. Can't wait until the outside bar is open.

We had a lovely lunch at the Castle Hill Inn overlooking the water. Waitstaff were exceptionally attentive and the food was outstanding. We started with the PEI mussels which were cooked to perfection. Our entrees were the salmon and scallops. Each prepared exquisitelly and the presentation was beautiful. Definately worth trying when in Newport!

...and the best bonus are the spectacular views! What a location! We were celebrating an anniversary there with about 25 guests, thus I did not expect impeccable service; the food was mostly good, although I wouldn't call it creative. I did not like the ribeye steak, for example. However, overall, it is a nice place - recommended.

Thank you for coming to celebrate with us and for the honest feedback. In truth, we hope that even with our larger private events we can exceed our guests' expectations of both food and service - and it sounds like we fell short on this one. I hope that next time we can remedy this, and make the food and... More
