My visit last night was not my first, and will certainly not be my last. TPK, as they refer to themselves, is a comfortable place with spectacular food. The menu featured seasonal items, the scallop dish I ordered was cooked perfectly, and the prix-fixe 3 course meal was well worth the $35 cost. The server was attentive, even on a... More

Visited Peoples Kitchen on a Groupon for a date night and had a great experience. Started with the $22 cheese board, not part of the discount but something we've wanted to try and we're so glad we did! A large portion of 3 choices of cheeses, meats, spreads and warm baguette. The duck prosciutto was different and delicious, Cambazola, Bucheron... More

We went here with a groupon. The restaurant is upstairs in an old building. It had no character at all. Although, I do enjoy a quiet restaurant maybe they could have some music playing softly. The first problem was that they could not make any of the four drinks our table ordered. They say that they have small batch liquor.... More

We finally made it on a groupon, and I really wanted to love it... But its not a place I think I will go back to - it was confusingly underwhelming. Service was GREAT, the place is CLEAN, and deceivingly HUGE and spacious. But the food is like a roller coaster - it can hit high notes and it can... More

Last night I had my first opportunity to try out PK and it was a top notch experience. The dinner evening was to celebrate our 43rd Anniversary,and friends were treating us. They had wanted to go somewhere different but let us make the final decision... and it was the correct one. We all enjoyed a different meal,a different app,and a... More

My husband and I have lived in or around Worcester our entire lives and have eaten in a million restaurants there. TPK exceeded our expectations. We came with a Groupon during Restaurant Week. The hostess as well as our server both told us what our best value would be and thus, didn't try to take advantage of us at all.... More

I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant in the spring and my husband was less than enthusiastic about eating at another Worcester restaurant; we have not had good luck in the area regarding really good meals…they have always been lackluster at best. The People's Kitchen has changed our minds!! They were spot on last night…the service was impeccable, we upgraded... More

I wish trip advisor would let you give half star ratings (3.5). The food was fine, the portions good and the price point was great. I had a steak that was cooked well but could have used a little more seasoning. Beth had the duck and the breast was cooked well but the duck leg was a little on the... More

My wife and I went to the Peoples Kitchen on a recent Thursday night for dinner. I know we like to dine early but at 5 PM we were the only couple in the restaurant. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor but there is an elevator for anyone, like me, with accessibility issues. We both had the Prix-Fixe dinner... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The waiter was knowledgeable, engaging, and did everything right. The food was fabulous. We both had the 3-course prix fix dinner and opted for the wine pairings to match each course (+$15). Every bite of every course was delicious from the fried goat cheese w/berries appetizer to the duck entree (leg confit... More
