The food was average and the service was poor at 41 North. In my reservation through Open Table, I had noted that this was an anniversary dinner for my husband and I who were married at 41 North the year before. The restaurant either didn't get the note or didn't care about it because we did not get a quiet... More

We went to the Grill for my birthday lunch. The view, setting and decor are all beautiful. We ordered cocktails and the server brought my husband the incorrect drink twice on the first round. We later asked for a second round and our server brought us our drinks, then two minutes later brought us a third round, as she forgot... More

Went for brunch on Sunday, first time visiting, and was not impressed. The customer service has lots of way to go and learn on the side of the waiter. I had the Asparagus omelet which was nothing impressive. Mimosa was good. Would I go back or recommend? Nope

This lovely outdoor seating overlooking the marina was delightful. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset as we dined on delicious food and wine. There is also a very large inviting outdoor bar which is a popular spot for an afternoon cool delight on a summer day. It is located behind the boutique hotel but open to the public. Because it is...

I spend my summers in Newport RI and have become increasingly impressed with Forty 1 North throughout this summer season. The property is beautiful with wonderful interiors and attention to the small details and amenities that elevate Forty 1 North to the premier upscale property in Newport. The outdoor bar pavilion is the perfect place for a specialty cocktail or... More

Stopped in for a drink outdoors by the water. Bar really tried to be super-chic but the experience was super crappy thanks to a bartender that just wasn't Newport. Service and attitude were horrible, I suppose i would give the place another chance to see if it was just that person or the persona of the bar/restaurant. Great views on... More

We went to The Grill for my nieces birthday dinner tonight. The setting is lovely but that's all that this restaurant has going for it. We were only one of three tables occupied and still had terrible service. The corn chowder was good however the serving equates to about a quarter cup for $14, the crab balls and calamari were...

Beautiful and trendy atmosphere, with water and yacht views. Open air dining. Nice menu, with really delicious food. If you're put off by snooty show- offy people this is not your place. If you can, ignore them, and enjoy the food and the view. Our server was very sweet but was not trained at all. She tried her best. I... More
