The Ocean House is unique among Relais and Chateaux. On the exterior it appears to be a brand new late 1800s Grand Hotel built in the style of NEw England. The interior is bright, stunning , and magnificent. Service was refined and friendly. Somehow concomitantly formal yet relaxed. Wonderful

The dinner at Seasons was a wonderful experience. Price fixed menu with ample choices. Plates were pleasing to the eye as well as delicious. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The Sunday jazz brunch is not to be missed.

The Ocean House is amazing...just worth walking in the historic doors...any season. And, Seasons is, well, fancy w/ all the good and the pretentiousness that goes with it. And, pricey. I prefer the menu & drinks on the veranda. But, anywhere at The Ocean house is an event...so go!

Dear Geo H, Thank you for dining with us in Seasons. It’s true that Seasons, our elegant fine dining restaurant, offers a vastly different dining experience compared to the Verandah Raw Bar, one of our casual, outdoor eateries.

We did a day trip to Watch Hill over the Columbus Day Weekend. We called and made reservations about two hours before our arrival. This worked out well but I would reserve much earlier during the summer busy season. The service was polite and competent. The ocean view was exactly what we wanted while dining. The food is local and... More

We spent a week at Ocean House. The resort is 5-diamond in all respects to include the food. Fresh ingredients, properly made and professionally served. It was a brilliant and very memorable stay. I'd recommend it to all.

This is a wonderful and romantic place to enjoy dinner. You wouldn't expect anything less from a venue as luxurious as this though. This area is blessed with many fine restaurants and it is subsequently not my favorite, however, that is not to say it isn't wonderful.

We were with a group of twelve, and we were in no hurry. Our service was good, but average for such an expensive restaurant. I would have expected several waiters and servers for this size group. I had Boullibaisse. I asked that a substitution be made for the fish portion, and they agreed. However, they just added more mussels. So... More

I was treated to a very special kitchen-side dinner---9 courses with an opportunity to converse with all chefs involved. Each course was delicious, presentation outstanding and the wine pairings interesting and spot on. I could not have picked a favorite course. This was a birthday gift to me and a dinner I will long remember. Fabulous!
