I am so disappointed about this restaurant, I heard such great things about it and also checked out the menu online and was excited to try some things off the menu. Had dinner with friends on 3/15/14. I was excited to try an appetizer and the main course I saw on the website. When the menu came it was completely... More

We were staying for the weekend at 41 North and enjoyed The Grill restaurant. We had dinner there one night and breakfast both mornings. The food was excellent!

My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant. We sat outside which I enjoy, especially if it is by the water. The views were gorgeous, there was a nearby party smoking though, which I can't blame the restaurant but it wasn't great while we ate. We aren't picky or fussy, though, so we still enjoyed ourselves. The wine was really good,... More

I stopped in to this restaurant because there was a sign outside advertising a surf and turf slider special. Although the sign was clearly marked for Forty 1 North, the special was actually for a nearby restaurant, Christies. I decided to stay and try Forty 1 North. I began with the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail which was six or so jumbo... More

We visited during Newport's Restaurant Week, which many local restaurants offer special menus. In this case it was a appetizer, main course and dessert for $30. At the Grill, this is a relative bargain. The interior is very attractive, the setting is posh, and on a good day the view of the harbor is nice too. Our food all around... More

It is restaurant week in newport so we decided to give it a try, even though we heard mixed reviews about The Grill. First it's $10 to park. It's November in newport not July. The atmosphere is very nice and the view is killer. The service was very good but overall not on par for level they want to be... More

The Grill is an unfortunate name for an astounding restaurant. The boring name does not do this incredible restaurant or its' chef justice. Chef Christopher Lee was stolen away from Aureole in New York City. Aureole, under Chef Lee's charge received a 28 for food from Zagat. He is a culinary genius and his art form continues at the Grill... More

We should have listened to the warning... Very over-priced and though our waitress was very good, our order was messed up twice...

The restaurant is beautiful but the food is average at best!! My husband got oysters that had to be sent back because they smelled and tasted bad. The waitress was not very knowledgeable about the menu. The place is nice looking but not worth the trip and money.
