I have eaten here for a normal dinner meal, and was completely unimpressed. However, I have now had Easter brunch and Thanksgiving Day here (due to family democracy :) ) and have been very impressed with those meals. For Thanksgiving, they had the standard turkey-stuffing spread, as well as a raw bar, pasta bar, enormous antipasto table, kids table and... More

This place was reasonably priced for great food and I loved the back room with the fireplace. We were too full for dessert but I bet they are wonderful!

If this restaurant was in my neighborhood, I would be eating there at least once a week. The ingredients were fresh, everything was delicious and well prepared and the service was great. I highly recommend the Filet Bleu! (Filet mignon) and the scallops appetizer was amazing!

While I prefer eating at the more casual pub (also at the Inn), Kensington's does offer a more upscale atmosphere and good American food.

At Kensington's we ordered a cauliflower starter and two entrees. Ultimately, only the entrees came. In the Waldorf wrap, the sweet potato fries were cut way too thin and you couldn't taste them at all. They were burned, tasteless and should not have been served to anyone. Try the nice pizzeria across the street. At least they don't serve burned... More

Came to the spa with my daughter for her birthday. When booking treatments, the reservation specialist recommended the day package which essentially provided a complimentary lunch. We arrived via the spa to the outside deck and had to find our way inside to the hostess which was not well marked. We waited several minutes and then 3 employees approached the... More

A friend of mine and I had lunch at Kensington during a spa day. The service was outstanding but the lobster salad was a bit pasty. The caprice salad I had to start was delicious. My friend had the scallop salad and she very much enjoyed hers. We will return but I will steer clear of the lobster salad.

Main restaurant for Norwich Inn and Spa. Great variety on menu. Nutrition info for offerings. Had breakfast as part of overnight package. Friend's omelet was good. Ordered Crabcake Benedict with request for dry scrambled egg instead of poached. Presentation not very appealing. Crab (was it a cake to begin with?) completely covered with eggs underdone for my taste. Hollandaise very... More
