We're losing a real gem!

We love TSK. Great food. Even better people. We have enjoyed it thoroughly over the last couple years. The food is always surprising, and most is stuff that I can't figure out how to make myself, it's so innovative. Food that warrants high-end wine, which we bring with us, since they don't... read more

Time is running out if you haven't sampled TSK. You have only a month or so to visit this popular eating establishment as they will be closing at the end of the year. We were there for a special occasion recently and enjoyed a nice meal. Highly recommend reservations and getting there early. Its small and gets a little noisy.... More

We recently scored a reservation at this popular restaurant on a weeknight during Newport Restaurnt Week. We arrived 5 minutes early and were told our table would be ready in 5 minutes. A half hour later we were finally seated. This was our second visit to this restaurant and the first had been stellar. This time it was almost, but... More

I was very excited to dine at this place, but left disappointed after dining. Place is small and lacks character -looks like a small cafeteria. The food is interesting but quantity is small and pricey. My lobster dish was very good, but my wife's meat was not hot, very tiny pieces and the sauce had a very unappealing fatty taste.... More

TSK is definitely a restaurant that takes its food seriously. The platings and combinations of ingredients were creative, beautiful, and well-paired. A beet salad was beautifully done with fresh, balanced favors. They cooked a duck breast to perfection, and paired it with some spectacular mushrooms. The short ribs were terrific as well. Alas, everything we had - from the appetizers... More

We ate at the Thames Street Kitchen mid-summer. We loved this small place, the menu was limited (and plates are modest size) but we found plenty to enjoy. Would highly recommend to foodie types as the food is excellent, but would suggest checking their menu online to see if their food style suits your tastes. BYO is always a plus... More

Visited here last week as recommendations were high but we were not impressed. Portions were small even by US standards, food was mediocre and the BYOB deal was spoilt by a $3 per person corkage which added $9 to our overpriced bill.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The staff was great, as was the atmosphere. Did not feel at all touristy, which was a big concern. Definitely check out TSK if you are a "foodie".

We went with friends on a recent Saturday evening (Sept). Atmosphere was nice, casual vibe and the food was everything we had expected. We are not usually picky about service unless it is seriously flawed which is what happened that night. I would give them benefit of the doubt and certainly go there again hoping it isn't the norm. Maybe... More
