We searched OpenTable and this restaurant came up as having a table. We booked it for 15 minutes later, but upon arrival there were no 5 person tables available. It seems they were surprised by the last minute booking online...probably didn't update table availability on the system. In any case, within 25 minutes they did make a table available and we had a nice lunch, with an odd server that apologized every time he came to the table even though there was nothing to apologize for.

We had our 15th anniversary lunch there last Wednesday. Our server, Jessica made our time there a memorable experience. We actually got there a half hour before they were closing for lunch, but she told us not to worry, and let us take our time and not feel rushed. She was extremely attentive and joked with us throughout our time, which we love to do. Hopefully Jessica will be there the next time we go to the Castle Inn. Needless to say, the Castle Inn is a 5 star experience.

While visiting Newport and touring the mansions we had lunch at Castle Hill. The service and view
Were great. We had a wonderful lunch with outstanding new England clam chowder. I hope to go back.

I dined here with my husband during restaurant week. Beautiful restaurant right on the water. Very good service, water was refreshed promptly. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant. Portions were small but that may have been because of the special restaurant week pricing. The arancini appetizer was fantastic and the rest was quite good as we'll.

Positives:
- VIEW- the view alone was the highlight of my trip to Newport. I recommend arriving early before your meal so you can take pictures/drink cocktails on the lawn in the Adirondack chairs. If the weather allows, you must sit outside!
- Service- our waitress was great and very knowledgeable. She had a larger table and when she would get caught up taking care of them, another server would come to check on us to make sure everything was okay
- Food- came for Sunday brunch. I ordered the local cheese plate, and lobster roll. The lobster roll is the best I have ever had!
- Atmosphere- there was a live jazz band outside at the foot of the deck which topped off the whole experience

Negative:
- Bees! There were quite a few bees that bothered us and kept landing on our food. If you have an allergy or are extremely terrified, it might be better to sit inside

Experience:
We came for Sunday brunch and ate outside on the veranda. It was the highlight of my trip! The food was delicious (a bit expensive, it's true, but that's why we came for brunch instead of dinner). I recommend arriving early to hang out on the lawn. We also stayed for an hour after our meal and just enjoyed the scenery and watched the sailboats go by. It is probably one of the best view you will ever have!
