“Good food and historic surroundings!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We enjoyed our "joint" birthday dinner here last week. The location is quite near the intersection of Bellevue Ave and Memorial Blvd. Just set in off Memorial Blvd, the B&B/restaurant has its own free parking which is a bit of a treat in Newport.
There is a very nice separate bar area which is a comfy spot to enjoy cocktails. The main dining area is very lovely and shows its' historic past. We were greeted very nicely and shown to our table immediately upon arrival (opentable.com reservation)
We enjoyed soup - onion for me and homemade barley for hubby- both of which were very good. We both choose the lamb entree and it was excellent. The risotto which accompanied the lamb was very flavorful.....one of the best I have ever had.
Dessert was carrot cake for both of us and it was very good. This was a very nice, relaxing dinner in a quiet and historic setting. We definitely will return

“Elegant for a good price”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

More of an upscale casual place out of the cener of town. There's a pub downstairs to wind down in after a higher end meal upstairs.
Great menus choises with excellent waitstaff. Very helpful and attentive. Try it out.

“A local Newport Jewel”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I took my girlfriend there for a Valentine's Day dinner and couldn't be happier with the dinner and atmosphere. The food and wine menus had great selections. The food was awesome and plenty of it. The hostess gave us a very friendly greeting and farewell. Our waitress was somewhat short on words but did a good job. The Canfield House is a local jewel and we would definitely return!

“Wonderful environment and good food”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I had the seafood stew and it was one of the best seafood dishes I have had in Newport. The dish was full of scallops, large shrimp, mussells and fresh fish.
