Scallop special featured a great risotto but the scallops tasted "off" - yuck. Baked haddock was very. Good and tasty. The dessert tray appeared to be right out of a box. I'm sure they try hard but there are some missing links. The place was beautiful though with the decorations in place.

The holiday decorations are beautiful. I will make an effort to return next year. New Years Eve was very crowded, but everyone enjoyed it. The atmosphere was great. Champagne toast served in a champagne glass, nice touch.

My husband and I recently dined at the Canfield house and enjoyed a great meal and good service. We have been visiting Newport for many years and can't believe we never dined here before. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant was decorated so tastefully for the holiday season. The menu offered good optionality with a gourmet flare. The haddock was prepared fantastic. We look forward to going back to the Canfield House during our next visit.

IMC's annual Holiday party was held at The Canfield House on December 2nd. We started the evening with a cash bar and Maggie Wiggins put out a spread of beautiful crudite, cheese and crackers. We then moved into the dining room decorated smartly for Christmas. The food selection, filet mignon, lobster stuffed sole and a vegetarian delight, was out of this world and the service flawless. Thank you Maggie for hosting this wonderful annual event for us. Thanks you and Merry Christmas to you and all at The Canfield House!

The food at the Canfield House was amazing. There were nine of us and each and everyone of us enjoyed our meals tremendously. No complaints from anyone. My son had the lobster mac and cheese for an appetizer, it was amazing. The french onion soup was probably the best I have ever tasted. Great choice for a good meal.
