We have lunched and dinned many times at Kensington's and had pleasant meals, but this year Mother's Day special was a disaster. Oysters have a very potent ( foul) smelling, the shrimps were soggy, the lobster bisque had so much flour that stuck the the spoon, the halibut was overcooked etc. the only thing that I could eat was the...

My wife and I ate out at Kensington's while staying at the Norwich Inn and Spa recently and it was just ok. My wife had the chicken pot pie which she said had a serious lack of seasoning. I got the Fra Diablo which was cooked fine but had zero spice. What actually made me write this review was my... More

This restaurant used to be excellent. Not true now. Selection was limited, and not enough vegetables.

We ate at Kensingtons multiple times over a several day stay. The food was creative but not consistently fabulous. The main courses were interesting and well prepared. We also liked some of the soups and cheeses. I was glad to eat here several times while staying here, but I probably wouldn't go otherwise.

I enjoyed this restaurant very much. Our servers were very familiar with the menu and able to easily make suggestions and answer questions. The lunch menu has numerous choices including several for vegetarians. We had shrimp cocktail, potato green bean soup ( special that day), salad with fresh figs and mango and the salmon on chibatta roll. All of the... More

All the food is very yummy. This place is really cozy with a fireplace. The portion sizes are huge. They have tons of options from steak to fish to chicken. The staff is really nice. I never had a bad meal yet and have been coming here for about 5 years.

First, the place smells like a nursing home! Menu looked great, but the food left much to be desired. There are many places in the area that serve better food for the same or lesser prices.
