A word from 15 Point Road
15 Point Road, A special treat in Portsmouth Rhode Island along the Sakonnet River. Busy, but not crowded, with an enchanting moonlit river view. A traditional menu pleases most everyone and house specialties are an ever-changing eclectic delight of innovative and contemporary dishes. When one walks up to the doorway, the bed of fresh growing herbs just off the deck will give you hints of the treats that await. Once inside you will be entranced by the view of the Sakonnet River which leads out to the ocean beyond through the panorama of windows. Across the river you will occasionally notice the local fishing boats as they make their way to the Tiverton fish market. If you"re lucky enough, you might even catch one of the local lobstermen heading out to tend his lobster traps in Mount Hope Bay!

    We dined at 15 Point Road with friends of ours during restaurant week. I use a wheelchair and noted it on our reservation. The restaurant called to confirm our reservation and to ask additional questions about the accommodations needed. We were greeted upon our arrival and had a very short wait time. There were many choices on the restaurant week menu and each member of our party chose something different. We were not disappointed. This restaurant is quite the gem!

    brought my girlfriends here for dinner. Some of the dishes were quite tasty but others were not. The tonic for my drink was flat, the lobster bisque was not hot enough but tasty. The scallops wrapped in bacon were fantastic! I had the hot and spicy shrimp. They were not hot or spicy. Would not order again. 2 gals had the sweet potato salmon with the polenta. The salmon was tasteless and should have been sent back as it needed to be cooked a bit longer. The polenta, while not the traditional preparation was quite good. A little disappointing......

    very nice view overlooking the water. Appertizers of spicy shrimp and Capresse were excellent. Entrees of steak diane and duck with ginger and hoisin sause were very good. Only complaint was the menu said that the meal would be a half duck, instead it was 2 leg quarters. Half is much better as it includes the breast. otherwise a very nice restaurant.

    This is a wonderful restaurant. It has lovely ambience, right on the water with fabulous food. It was a nice romantic spot for my husband and I to enjoy dinner. The food menu is not large but there is enough to find several items we liked. The prices are not unreasonable either. We will definitely visit again.

    The food is very, very good at a very good value as well. The dining room is a little loud and very tight for groups of 6 or more. Don't let that deter you from having a great meal out of the crowded overpriced waterfront and downtown areas. A fine restaurant with a great staff.

    Once again our neighbors, my husband and I had a wonderful evening at 15 Point Road. It was a beautiful night with several people eating outside. We chose to eat in and were given a booth with such a nice view. The food was great, all our meals, especially the specials for that night, were so good. We felt everything was well paced , therefore we didn't feel rushed at all. We definitely will be back soon!

    My husband and I are return customers and found the service, food and atmosphere as good as the last time. Four people in our party had not been and couldn't say enough good things. They accomodated our request to sit outside and were ready for us early. Although we felt a bit rushed to order initially our server realized quickly that we were 'dining' not eating and was great. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks and finally got around to ordering our dinners. We had a number of the specials including the prime rib and were delighted with the food. The scallops in particularly were excellent. We had the beignets and carrot cake and can recommend both! It was a great finish to the evening. We look forward to returning

  • A few misses but mostly a hit!

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Usually a big hit with us, but this time, a few misses.I noticed a damp smell when we first arrived near the entrance and bar area. A little noticeable in the dining area. Kind of funky smelling.We ordered the blue fish pate (which was delicious, and an ample size for sharing ) but it only had a few pieces of crusttini with it. When we asked for more crusttini, the waitress came back with two little pieces. When we asked for more again, (we weren't going to waste the pate) she said the kitchen was busy and she could only bring us bread. (which was fine with us but she was pretty short when we asked for more) Then, unfortunately, my friend had a hair in her salad. The waitress took it right back. The good food made up for the shortfalls.

    The restaurant is very nice, with a moderate size dining room and a nice deck for outdoor dining with a view down the Sakonnet. The menu is varied and the food very good. My wife had the scallops and I had the chicken alfredo and we agreed that we would happily order the same again. The service was prompt, but not intrusive. I imagine afternoon drinks on the deck on a summer's day would be great, I look forward to that next year!

    We had a reservation for 7:30 and told the hostess it was our first time there. We seemed to be getting pushed aside while others arriving later were seated. They did apologize several times for the wait as we stood in the hallway dodging the waitstaff. We were seated sometime after 8. Server seemed annoyed with us and distracted. Food was ok but not worth the wait. Probably won't go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    The server during our experience was almost non existent. She seemed more concerned about a table with a large party, rather than our table of two. The food seemed rushed and did not have the care of preparation as I would expect. The seafood casserole was seeminly left in the oven too long and was very dry. Many of the servers kept doing laps through the dining area, presumably looking for empty plates. Good idea for service, but it became very distracting because they just kept walking around the dining area constantly. The lobby was cramped and the entrance to the dining area was awkward. The view was good though.

    My husband and I love it here! We had our rehearsal dinner there about 3 years ago and made sure to go back for our anniversary the past 2 years. The food is fantastic, especially the last time we went. We had the mac and cheese lobster dish for an appetizer and I had the Mt. Hope seafood plate with clam chowder and my husband had the duck. Everything was delicious and the service was great, as always. If we lived closer, my husband and I would be regulars but it's worth the drive to go down when we can! I saw that they now serve lunch Thursday-Sunday too.
