“Complicated menu choices”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Very quiet dining room even with other people in there, felt a little like being in an exam room. Nice staff. Complicated menu options so we just plumped for 3 course. Food was nice but pretty pricey all in all. Views made it worthwhile especially watching sunset

Thanks very much for your note regarding your recent dinner at Castle Hill. We offer our dining room menu in three, five and eight course "prix fixe" options for our guests, and I apologize if we were less than clear in explaining them to you during your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Newport.

Kind regards,

Brian Young

“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

For that special dinner or just wanted great food and atmosphere - go here. Loved the food even though a bit pricey to say the least. The portions were small but very tasty. The staff was EXCELLENT! Loved our table which had a wonderful view. I cannot say enough about our waiter and how everyone was so nice. It is worth hanging out in the chairs on the lawn, at the bar or making a dinner reservation. Next time - we might even stay here instead of the pricey, sterile 41 North downtown!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This place knows what they are doing. I had the sword fish at the Sunday brunch and it was the tenderest tasty sward fish I have ever had. Waiters were knowledgable. $150 for a Family of 4. Views from the grounds are the best in newport and maybe in all of New England. make reservations in advance and spend some time there after brunch. I will consider the dinner tastings menus for next time as well as staying at the inn. I would say dinner not worth it for small kids though. My 11 and 13 year olds were fine for the brunch.

“The Best”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The food and service was excellent. I cannot say that I disliked anything about the decor or food. I loved the free afternoon tea also. The room was cozy and the views were unbelievable.
