Contemporary American | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

Thank you to the exceptional team at Castle Hill for making our engagement dinner so memorable. From the moment we sat down, the team was so accommodating. Some friends had purchased us cocktails and wine to celebrate, and they took note of the occasion and repeatedly congratulated us. We each had the three course menu. I started sweet potato ravioli, and my fiance had the seasonal soup. It was divine! For dinner I had Seared Halibut. It was served with root vegetables in a chowder sauce- again amazing. My fiance had the pheasant and raved about it. For dessert we both had the Coffee Semifreddo and it was heavenly. It was the perfect portion for each course so you felt satisfied but not overly full. Our waitress was extremely attentive throughout. She made a wonderful wine suggestion that paired perfectly with everything we ate. We will definitely be back and hope to make this an annual tradition! More

American | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

The food was good, the service was very nice, and the atmosphere was excellent. The hotel is restored in a way that brings eclectic elegance to the dining experience. Appetizers of oysters and octopus were fresh and tasty with traditional accompaniments. The main dishes were good but could have used some inspirations with flavors to really bring them to life more vibrantly. The drink selections and wine are by far incredibly strong with a nice mix of non traditional pairings that may be one of the best things about the restaurant. Overall, our experience was very nice and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We will return again. More

Mediterranean | Newport, Rhode Island, Rhode Island

This is review is a little deceptive because we were not actually able to go to dinner at the Chanler. The phone app let us make a reservation and did not inform us that the hotel and dining room were actually closed for the month. We showed up and were very confused when we couldn’t get in. I called the hotel and the customer service was outstanding! They were very apologetic. I have been to the Chanler for drinks before and am looking forward to one day having a full course dinner there. Just not in January :) More

The Wharf Pub is a great place to sit back, relax, and have some drinks and food. The oysters we had out of Matunuk were fresh and delicious. The beer list was long and many good choices. We kept to eating pub food choices so I can’t talk about the entree menu but the burgers and shrimp were good. A great place to relax! More
