I am looking to give a gift card for a great restaurant in Newport. I don't have a clue about the area. Please give me your suggestions.

    castle hill is part of the revamped newport restaurant group - go with a gift card from them (NRG) and it can be used at castle hill, 22 bowen's, the boat house, and the mooring - all great places.

      Agree w/the NRG gift card, best choice. Recently I recommended the Mooring on here and the orig poster came back to say she had a terrible meal. I felt awful but went myself a few wks ago and couldn't have enjoyed it more - a friend and I split several dishes for a sort of elaborate lunch and each dish was better than the last (soup, salad, burger, risotto, etc).

      We love Peurini's. Food is always delicious!! Inn at Castle Hill is nice. Restaurant Bouchard is a dining experiance.
