Outstanding atmosphere picture perfect!! Delicious food & cocktails. Our waitress was inexperienced and did not know menu or how items were prepared, which the chef would have probably not have been happy with! Other wise a favorite place to come to when in Newport!

The hostess was rude and unhelpful. She stated that all the servers were on break and unless we had a reservation we were not able to be seated, and nothing was available.

Okay: so I stood there and made a reservation. We were seated promptly.

Our waitress Lauren was very sweet, and very attentive. Was knowledgeable and eager to please our table.
My only critique was we didn’t have side plates for our appetizers. So I asked the gentleman working behind the bar as he walked by once he had a moment, if he would be so kind to bring side plates.

He did, rolled his eyes, dropped them on the corner and shook his head as he walked away. This was Monday 7/6 at around 3:30, he was short, tan skin and dark brown hair, blue jeans and a white belt, and an attitude problem. I wish he knew he was serving a table where there was a tremendously successful restaurant owner; who has 6 places in RI.

Will not be returning for lunch anytime soon, but excited to see the evening staff with hopes they’d be kinder and much more helpful.

And please praise Lauren, she was a wonderful waitress! Will request her next time.

Amazing atmosphere and service. The food was definitely the best that we had during our stay in Newport. It is on the pricier end versus the other restaurants in this area, but we felt the food, service, and atmosphere also exceeded that of every other restaurant we went to. Will definitely return on our next visit to Newport.

The grill at Forty 1 North is one of my favorites and it never disappoints. Even with COVID the experience was a 10 out of 10. From service to food what an amazing night. Highly suggested. The GM came over and introduced himself and was assisting his staff all night. Great team work.

We were visiting Newport and we were excited to try Forty 1 North but we were disappointed. We were seated and brought water but the waiter never came to our table until the hostess told him to. When the waiter finally came over after 15mins of being seated, he apologized for being new & took our drink order, app order & dinner order then was never seen again. As we waited, the table next to us were talking to what looked like a manager about not receiving their drinks or food when they were there a long time before us. When we explained our discomfort to multiple employees, they could not find where our waiter had gone either. So, to sum up our experience, we never got our drinks, food, or service that we thought would be very good at Forty 1 North.

We came here for my birthday dinner. I can understand why its rated so highly. The view is absolute class you're right by the boats, everything is all white decor. It's super chill and they've got an extensive menu. The food was amazing but the view was unbeatable. Plus everybody was quiet so it really just brought out the ambience.

The only issue I had with this place was the stairs you have to climb to go to the restaurant, for those that are older or cannot access this might be difficult. Maybe they had an elevator.

In the midst of a pandemic, we enjoyed ourselves at 41 north. The filet and rack of lamb were great, the martinis were on point, and the service was great.

We haven’t been to 41 since last year and what a difference it’s gone down hill and it has nothing to do with covid. The place especially outside is completely run down the whole thing needs a good power washing and a can of white paint. Then the food was horrible what a waste of money. The chicken sandwich is literally slice deli meat yet they charge 18.00 for it and the 28.00 lobster roll barely had any meat only lined the bottom of the roll. It honestly wasn’t even worth the gas very disappointing wouldn’t be in any rush to go back at all!

My husband me and two friends dined at 41 North on Friday evening. The setting for the restaurant is beautiful overlooking the water. My husband had the ribeye and I had the pork chop. Both were excellent the sides of the creamed spinach and mushrooms were also very good. Our waitress was fine, not personable or attentive but was not rude either.

The view was out of this world! Probably the best on the waterfront dining experience we’ve ever had. The service was fabulous, however the food was nothing to write home about. Still worth coming just for the views

I was celebrating my birthday and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The atmosphere was beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing. The service was on point. The drink selection could have been a little better. The menu seemed to be reduced due to the pandemic so not deducting points. However, the margarita wasn't that good and then I tired the aperol spritz which I also wasn't a fan of. They were out of Peroni beer. But this won't deter me from going there again. They were also nice enough to bring me dessert on the house when my boyfriend told them it was my birthday :) Ovey hapy girall I was a very happy girl!

Great food and service. It can get breezy at night and a little cool, but the staff was ready, willing & able to drop the clear side panels, so the evening was comfortable while maintaining the great view of the harbor.

Didn’t really enjoy how you had to place your whole order at once. Menu was very limited and not what was found online. Felt very rushed. We usually like to go order drinks and an app then order dinner then dessert. Especially with the location it would be nice to be able to enjoy a night out near the water rather than a 75 min rushed dinner

Best steak I have had in a long time. Worth every cent. Sitting by the water was lovely . Service was good. My only complaint is $5.00 for an unsweetened ice tea (approx 12 oz) should have had a free refill. Really, if you are paying $50.00 for your lunch, they could throw in a refill on the tea.
