Had to drop our daughter at the DCU center for a dance competition. Walked around the corner hoping to get into the wine bar. Well, there a bunch of things going on that night and the place was fully booked. There was one table near the entrance. The hostess offered it to us and kept the door to the entrance... More

This was our first visit to The People's Kitchen located in downtown Worcester, across from the DCU convention center. The restaurant provides complimentary valet parking. We ordered off the price fixed menu, starting with the spinach salad. The salads were extremely tasty. For our main entrees, I chose the Filet Mignon (small surcharge) and my spouse chose the salmon. We... More

Have been here on multiple occasions and have never left disappointed. The food is top notch using local ingredients from local farms, a changing monthly menu keeps people coming back to see what is next, on top of that they have specials that arouse your taste buds ! Service has usually been spot on, but like any service industry it... More

I have gone to the Citizen often since it first opened and it has become our frequent go-to place after work. I mean, what's not to love about a place that features wine, cheese and chocolate samplings among its specialties? That said, the service has disappointed several times. Once, the table we reserved for a group had been given away... More

I don't know why it took me so long to try this restaurant. The menu varies and is not huge, however they have a pretty big wine list and the portions are big. It's all farm to table with the freshest ingredients. We started with a cheese plate that came with a fig preserve, bread, honey, pickles, nuts, berries and... More

I went to The People's Kitchen with a friend for dinner. We started with a cheese plate which was great! Especially the Porter cheddar! I had the tuna tartare which was a very generous portion of top grade raw tuna with a yummy shallot vinegarette. For my entree, I had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly. The creme brulee...

Last week we visited People's kitchen for the second time, had to find out if the food would be as good as our first visit,or if the first trip was just exceptional? We were not disappointed and found the dining experience and the food to be just as good..if not better than our first visit three months earlier. This time... More

We were looking for a quiet night out and decided to start here for dinner. We reserved a few hours in advance (place books quickly according to OpenTable) got our groupon and headed over. The food... was amazing. Drinks were strong. Would be super expensive without a Groupon. We will absolutely be coming here again.
