They have a nice healthy menu and were accommodating to changes. The food was good and so was the service. It's a pretty room and you can wear your spa robe and feel comfortable.

We had a lovely dinner at Kensington after our weekday marriage ceremony. We were one of the only ones in the restaurant that evening, but the service was spectacular. The meal was delightful. Martini's were wonderful, wait staff was very attentive. Two of us had the shrimp with chorizo, rice and vegetables. It had a bit of spice to it,... More

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
