Truly exceptional. I've dined here several times, food and service is always top notch. Great views, knowledgeable servers, great selection of wine and spirits. A truly special place. There is a dress code so plan accordingly. Expensive but worth every cent.

The food at Castle Hill was excellent! We tried 3 different items on the menu and they were all delicious. The warm apple cider was especially good. The ocean view from the restaurant is pretty much perfect. The grounds are beautiful although we did not sit outside on the Adirondack chairs because it was a bit chilly. This restaurant is... More

To start, the property is absolutely gorgeous, the dining room view and appointments are stunning, you really *know and feel* like you are in a fine dining establishment. We were able to secure a window table, and loved... More

Let's start with the most important -- the view from this restaurant is spectacular at sunset. During late spring, summer and early fall -- it is next to impossible to get a reservation without trying at least a week in advance. You can eat at the bar or on the patio without reservations, but there may be a long wait.... More

Excellent food and service and during restaurant week a real value! The menu during restaurant week is a three course fixed price dinner for $35 per person, and they add a special wine list, all $35 per bottle. The food was amazing, the wine delicious, the service spectacular and the chef sent out a couple of small bites of other... More

Enjoyed a GORGEOUS lunch at Castle Hill Inn during a weekday visit to Newport. Fantastic service from Madeline, delicious food and wine, and an incredibly tasty dessert! Can't beat the view and the ground are gorgeous. I'd love to come back in the summer to enjoy the lawn!

What a splendid way to have dinner with family or friends. Choose to dine in with a formal approach or dine out under the stars. Whichever you close you won't be disappointed, I know, I live, work, and play in Newport, RI
