Valet parking cost $20 which is excessive given the area and off season and considering the parking lot was empty. Server was attentive, and meals were tasty but not exceptional. Overall a decent restaurant. Location is exceptional with stunning sunsets and harbor views.

The atmosphere is very nice, quiet and calm for Sunday brunch. However, the food and service were just ok. Would probably be ok just for a drink, but I don’t think we’d go back for a meal there.

Everything was great. We got there a bit early so we sat at the bar for a drink and the hostess came and seated us at our reservation time. Food was delicious. The only surprise was when we arrived and wanted to valet the car. Normally on Open Table when it says valet parking it’s complimentary. However people should be aware that there was a $20 fee for valet parking at this restaurant. Probably wouldn’t have changed our choice to valet but always nice to know before you get there.

Food and service were excellent. We had the crab cakes benedict, which was exquisite and cooked perfectly. The mimosas, on the other hand, were small and expensive, as was the coffee. Staff was very attentive.

A bit confusing at first since we couldn't find the hostess. There was another group that was also confused about where the hostess was. They had asked the hotel front desk person and she directed them outside so we headed out there but then asked a server for the hostess and she directed us back inside and was not very nice about it. To be honest, the hostess seemed confused herself. Maybe she was busy? But there were only about 2 tables seated and no crowd. Not sure what was going on. After being seated, our server was excellent and everything we had was delicious. Waterfront with all the yachts combined with the bright white decor and lively music selection was very pleasant. Would dine there again.

fantastic place to have an outdoor dinner during the summer. Beautiful views of the harbor and a vary vibrant bar scene to match. Food is executed very well and terrific choices. The indoor restaurant is a great choice if you don't want the noise of the club music that permeates the outdoor bar.

Love the ambiance and setting at 41 North. I eat out in Newport very frequently and the only reason I don't come here more often is 1. the menu selection and 2. the price point. I am all for spending $250++ on dinner and drinks, if they are delicious. Their menu is just overall lacking. Entree options don't seem to change with the seasons, or at all..... drinks are tasty, but nothing special. $18-20/ drink, I want a craft cocktail not just vodka with lemon and cucumber. $24 charcuterie plate that is mostly just bread. Anyway, still a great spot for just an app and drink with a date or friends.

Nice location. They charge you to park -$20.00 even if you are dining in one of their restaurants. Our dining occasion was brunch.
The hostess sat us outside which was nice.
The server we had was extremely unsocial and did a horrible job at engaging our party. She did little to make us feel welcomed and even less when it came to service. We had to request silver ware and napkins, along with salt and pepper. Once the food arrived, which was well done from the kitchen, she disappeared for second round drinks and the like.
The lack of service was evident by a lack of proper training. This experience was a complete disappointment and we will not be returning again.

Lovely setting on the water overlooking the ocean/marina and boats. Great brunch food selection but timing of service was a little off with a mixture of entrees and appetizers being brought out all at once. Don’t pass on the dessert menu. The strawberry basil trifle was amazing and not to be missed!

went here with my husband and another couple. we sat outside. it did not appear to be very busy (our reservation was at 9:30pm). my husband ordere the filet w/side of asparagus & he liked it very much. my friend & I both got the clam chowder & it came out luke warm & the clams were dry & chewy. we didnt even finish it. the waitress didn’t even check back to see how everything was so i flagged her down & told her the soup wasn’t hot & just not good. she took jt back & immediately came back with 2 more bowls & sadly it tasted the same. we did not send the soups back again. my friend got the salmon & it was ok but definitely not the best. she also got a side salad & it came plain with just lettuce!! are u kidding me? i would only Recommend this place for the ambience only and maybe a couple drinks. Don’t bother with the food. Never been to an upscale restaurant where the food and service was so poor.

I was blown away by the beautiful harbor and the snobbery of the staff! We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated at a table in the worst location. It was placed right in the thoroughfare where everyone has to squeeze by whether it’s guests going to their seat or servers going to and from the kitchen. We asked to be moved. The hostess didn’t really care even though I explained why. She proceeded to seat others at the tables I asked to be moved to only to come back and say she had “a lot of reservations” but would ask the manager. 15 minutes go by and there are still multiple open tables. She passes by twice more, ignoring us. Meanwhile the server was came to take our drink order. She was nice enough but didn’t seem experienced and wasn’t friendly. The hostess comes by and offered in a rush to move us to a back table where you can’t see the view at all. The whole reason (previously expalined) for dining here was the view. We stayed in our seats until finally another of the staff comes up and says they have a table for us up front. We move and are first served a dish of crackers which aren’t any good and then our entrees of halibut. The dish was ok but didn’t exceed expectations. The fish had a good sear but not very flavorful even with the syrupy sauce underneath. The fennel was barely soft but edible. We watched the sun set over the gorgeous boats which is what I planned our whole evening around. It really was beautiful! It is a shame we were treated the way we were. It’s not as if we weren’t tidy or were underdressed. Besides, there were dogs under most of the guest tables and children who behaved poorly.

The broccoli was the best that we had ever had. I want to start off with that- it was beyond words good. The music was so loud, it was like we were at an EDM concert when we just wanted dinner. There were not enough people there for it to be as loud as it was, especially outside. And speakers everywhere, you could not escape the noise. Other food was fine, not great. The menu changed from what Opentable had it as, which was severely disappointing. Servers were fine, not especially knowledgeable but overall friendly.

Go to get the broccoli and do it take out.

Food was excellent, drinks were not. I know it can be difficult to make a dirty martini but it was gross. I’m not one to complain at the restaurant because I feel like it’s kind of pointless but the drinks and service were below par. Food was perfect though!

Food was very good but service was extremely slow even though the restaurant was 30% full. Drinks are overpriced and mediocre at best. Staff does not know their products. Location is just about perfect.

Follow up: The grill reached out directly and addressed my concerns. Invited us back for another visit. Great customer service and now look forward to heading back over.

This may be a fun place if you are looking for tail, but not for dinner. Terrible service, I had to keep asking for my water to be refilled, the waitress didn't know what bread was, food was okay, but then got charged double on my card. For those looking to go out, the very loud techno music stars at around 930 and makes dinner pretty unbearable. We asked for the check right after we got our entrees because we wanted to get out of there fast. There are plenty of other amazing seafood restaurants (midtown oyster, wharf, etc) that are better than this place... recommend going elsewhere for dinner.
