“What a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Upon arriving staff asked if you were there for drinks or dining. Either seemed fine with them. There are Arirondack chairs down on the lawn if you want to just have a cocktail (average price $12.) & watch the scenery, which is what we originally planned to do but decided to treat ourselves to lunch. Turned out to be the right decision! Best lobster roll I've ever had & worth the $24.00 price, had a delicious cocktail - Blueberry Lemonade (does not have a strong blueberry taste), and took in the view of sailboats going by on the Narragansett Bay. All staff was just so pleasant. Highly recommend the Castle Hill Restaurant!

“Contues to deliver an excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had not dined at Castle Hill in a few years and were hoping that it had not lost its luster. We were not disappointed. Although it was a rainy evening, the setting is still spectacular, overlooking Narragansett Bay. They offer a number of dining rooms to choose from and each offers its own interesting setting to enjoy. There is also a very nice cozy bar area to enjoy a beverage before you meal.

Our server has been with the restaurant for a number of years and he was excellent. He made excellent recommendations for both the meals and wine parings for the meals. The food was very uniquely prepared and also excellent. Overall, a great dining experience.

“Lunch at Castle Hill Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

On a recent girls trip to Rhode Island, we had lunch at Castle Hill Inn in Newport. What a gorgeous view overlooking Narragansett Bay! Before lunch, we enjoyed a drink in the outdoor bar. Service and food was excellent. It was a wonderful way to end our stay in Newport.

“Exquisite Dining in a Grand Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

In the noted Relais et Chateax Castle Hill property with terrific water views, especially at sunset. Nice easy four mile drive from downtown harbor area. Spiffy place. Out on a promontory on the harbor where Grace Kelly stayed while filming High Society. Excellent wine list at appropriate pricing. Top notch cuisine. I thoroughly enjoyed the pork and clam entree, notwithstanding the clams which I liked as a flavor to the dish, but which didn't stand well on their own. The excellently prepared pork variations cured that minor negative. Excellent service. If you enjoy fine dining with great ambiance and scenic water views, this is a must! Grand Newport.
