“The focus is on the food here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Although this charming spot has no ocean view or heavy-on-seafood menu, the food is a few notches above most on the island and the service is totally professional (Lynn was our server!). I had hanger steak with watercress, mashed potatoes & chimchurri sauce - delightful and a perfectly sized portion. Good wine. Also a treat: roasted head of garlic in olive oil to dip warm bread chunks into! You won't find the beach-going hoards lining up at the door here; it's the place for those who want a more refined dining experience and for those who will enjoy the art on the walls. Don't be put off by the small windows and darkish atmosphere; you've probably gotten too much sun today already!

“Best on Block Island by far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Food and service here would stand out in New York or Boston. Only complaint: tables are close and the place is noisy. But everything else is fantastic

“Dinner with the Lady”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This resturant is nice. After only dining at 5 or 6 other top reviewed restaurants around the island this is what I found to be the most upscale. The menu has a nice selection, the wine list is long, and the desserts are de-lish. The property is pleasing to the eye and makes for a 'romantic', if you will environment. Just a few tables over from us a guy proposed to his girlfriend. This is a nice place to go if you are looking for a sit-down, enjoy your time, kind of place.

“The best restaurant on Block Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Winfield's is the best restaurant on Block Island. If you go to Block Island and don't eat at Winfield's, don't get on Trip Advisor and talk about the bad meals you had, or even the good ones, because without eating the catfish at Winfield's, you have no decent point of reference. The catfish, served on a bed of polenta with just the right amount of jalapeño heat, is, simply put, the best meal in the northeast, maybe the entire east coast, maybe the continental US. Go there. Get the lobster mac and cheese as a starter, or the tuna cakes, or, if you're lucky, the fish cheeks, then get the catfish. Then go back to wherever you're staying and bask in the glow. Chef Berke Marye is THE MAN. Go to him.
