Delicious dinner, close quarters

We ate at the high-top table and it was a little close. Once my lobster dish arrived I no longer noticed. Everyone loved their dinner, even the eleven year old who was with us.

We had been looking to try this place out based on the reviews and that was a good idea. Food is expertly prepared (see recommendations below). I can't say enough about the curried egg raviolo as this was one of the best dishes I ever had. Next time I may just order a dozen of these single-yoked pleasure bombs...with a... More

We went to TSK this summer for the first time, and felt like we had been missing out all this time. There is only one thing to talk about and that's the food. It is simply delicious, my wife had the chicken and she couldn't stop raving about it. One thing though it is BYOB so make sure to bring... More

Words cannot describe our experience. Thames Street Kitchen is a low-key, discrete restaurant that focuses on fine food, excellent service and simple decor. We had the rabbit pave, lamb belly, flounder and scallops. All very, very delicious!!!

We didn't know what to expect. It's a small, neighborhood-like restaurant run by a family. They purposely don't have a liquor license. Were we surprised! It's now one of our two favorite restaurants in Newport. Yes, they have a small menu, but it's innovative and perfectly executed. For what you get, it's quite inexpensive. The food warrants accompaniment with great... More

In a posh resort area like Newport, it's nice to have a BYOB, quiet, straightforward gustatory respite. Though the neighborhood is a bit iffy, it's conveniently located next to a liquor store for patrons to buy some libations if they forgot TSK is BYOB. The menu is small, but the quality is abundant. One negative--there are several high top tables,... More

TSK is by far our favorite restaurant in Newport. It is our number one pick when family and guests visit. We've been several times now with several different parties over the last few months, and everyone walks away raving over the food. The menu changes constantly, always unique and delicious. The atmosphere suits us perfectly, nice, simple, and comfortable, definitely... More

This place gave me one of the best meals of my life, hands down. We went here with a group of 8 and no one was disappointed. My sister's steak was incredible. I had a seafood dish and it was also excellent. The prices are a BIT pricey, but the food is so good it's worth it. Plus this place... More

While the place is small, and simply adorned, the food is seasonal, local and thoughtfully detailed. Fresh bread served in a paper bag sums up the experience. The focus is clearly about the food, not the flatware. The only real view, or adornment in the place, is the framed view of the active kitchen. Makes sense. We started with the... More
