This is definitely a foodie restaurant. The service is exceptional especially our "captainess". She explained all the courses to my 16 year old daughter who decided to try the fois gras. It really Made our night special. The only reason for the 4 stars is the cost with 2 cocktails and the 3 course you're looking at $250 before tip... More

A beautiful setting with massive water views. Excellent food and spectacular service. We had a very nice lunch and perhaps the best class chowder ever.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a fantastic lunch at The Lawn. The view is spectacular, service was very attentive, and of course the food is outstanding, too. It was an extremely hot day and we got mixed messages on the dress code but apparently it's more relaxed outside compared to the Dining Room. We have been... More

Reserving a table is a must these seats go fast. I made my reservation for 11:30 am on Sunday, the staff was very friendly and the food was outstanding. The views alone were worth the money. Nothing is better than having a refreshing cocktail as you watch the boats go by.

While you may not be able to stay in one of the famous mansions of Newport, this is just as special. This was one of the earlier mansions and sits on a prominence of land that overlooks the channel, to the ocean beyond…amazing. The woodwork and vintage feel of the hotel itself is to be appreciated…the bar was wonderful. I... More

We had a tasting menu here which was wonderful. The view is to die for, and the food is fantastic, as is the service. I can't say enough good about the CHI.

We went in hopes that the lawn portion of the restaurant was open, but it was to early in the spring season. Thankfully they took us in (jeans, flip flops, and all)...after all it was lunch time and off season. The food was good, but typically over priced...mainly for the amazing view. I'm glad we went and got the experience,... More

We simply cannot rave about this place more! We heard about it through our friends who got engaged there a few years ago and everything definitely lived up to our expectations if not exceeded them. We ate at both Castle Hill & Bouchard on our trip and Castle Hill knocked Bouchard out of the park! The thing I loved most... More
