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 were lucky enough to get a window seat, sunset would have been great but that didn't happen. Quiet spot with a varied menu, certainly had plenty to chose from . I had the Chilean sea bass, phenomenal, my dinner date had the prime rib, not much flavor but that isn't uncommon for prime rib, I tried it but I'm not crazy for meat that I have to really chew so I always opt for seafood. Very fresh and the presentation was really nice, I enjoyed it immensely and would go back again.

    We took friends out for dinner. After a longer than normal drive we arrived and were whisked right to our table. The staff was attentive and keyed in on our elderly guesses having hearing issues. They were extremely patient and took extra care in helping them thru the menu. Answer questions with interest. The food was delicious, well prepared and served with great attention to detail. The Beignets and Key Lime pie were an outstanding end to a enjoyable evening. We are going to definitely repeat. Hopefully we will return when we can enjoy the outside seating and fantastic water view... Great Jog 15 Point Road...

    We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu, steak dinner and salmon dinner. Both were wonderful. The merlot that came with dinner was excellent, though I'm not a wine connoisseur by any means. Can't say enough about this restaurant's food or ambiance, just that we hope to return very soon.

    We arrived to a very strong, cold wind blowing over the Sakonnet River. It was very warrm, welcoming and cozy inside. We opted for ordering from the menu since we could get a 20% discount. My husband and I both got "The King and Prince", a lobster, veal and pasta dish. It was outstanding! Our waitress was excellent. We look forward to our next visit. A real gem!

    This restaurant has it's act together....It's a fun, lively place to dine on a delicious meal. There were six in our party and we all enjoyed something different from the menu. The food is fresh and presented well on the plates. A nice selection of 'hot' rolls was brought to our table with a choice of butter or infused oil. Having only come in the evening I have not seen the view, but I do realize that the restaurant is situated above a harbor overlooking boats. The interior of the restaurant is simple yet very pleasant with comfortable booths or tables. For our party, we were in a booth that comfortably sat six and gave us the privacy we wanted for this dinner. The staff was attentive and served us well.

    The staff is always upbeat and welcoming as the owners are always present and buzzing around the restaurant mingling with guests and making sure the operation is run smoothly. The food is always delicious and the presentation impressive. A great place for a romantic dinner or a family gathering. There is a function room above the restaurant which is always a great place to have a private party. Make the trip out to 15 Point Rd. it is definitely worth your while.

  • Slightly Dissapointing
    WeekendDiner
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    Arrived 5 mins late for a 7:00 reservation and still had to wait 20 mins for our table. Ordered Steak Diana and Pan Seared Scallops. Inquired if scallops were bay or sea and told sea Food arrived in a timely manner. The scallops were the smallest "sea" scallops possible and the entrée consisted of just 6 scallops. 2.5 to 3 oz of scallops, at best. At $24, hardly worth the price. The Steak Diana was acceptable, although the serving size was also on the small side. Service was "Ok", but there was no "two bite check" by our server. A drink order, taken by a buser was never delivered and our waitress was unaware that we had ordered it. Overall, nice location, great waterfront view, food and service could be better.

    What a great place! Ordered from Valentine's Special Menu and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious- perfectly spaced and cooked to perfection. We both had steak/shrimp entree - Farm and Sea-I believe. Large portion. Too full for dessert. Didn't drink as we had to drive to hotel. Servers were friendly and attentive. Nicely decorated. Restaurant was full yet not crowded, tables nicely spaced. It was dark but you could see the beautiful view on the water. Cannot wait to return in the warmer months. We stopped in to the Nwpt Winter Fest next day and were pleasantly surprised to see the owners had a booth set up at the Chili Cookoff. Chili was delicious! It was no surprise to us that 15 Point Street was named first place winner!

    There were four of us dining together and we were all very happy with our entrees. It was a quiet Tuesday evening in the winter so we did not expect a full house but there were still a modest number of diners. We all ate off the Prix Fix menus and were pleasantly delighted at how wonderful everything was. Actually, we all love 15 Point Road, the food is always delicious, one word, consistent.

    The meals and service, as always, were perfect. The steak Diane was medium rare as ordered, one of my husband's favorite selections at 15 Point Road. He enjoyed a different red wine that was suggested by our waitress. Other selections were Veal Madeira, that 3 tender pieces of veal with a tasty sauce, the King and Prince pasta dish contained good size pieces of lobster meat. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and had a beautiful window seat view of the Sakonnet River.

    We met some friends for dinner on a Tuesday night. We ended up eating at the bar because it was so comfortable and the bartender, Val, was delightful. We ordered from the special Prix-Fixe menu and were very impressed with the value. I had the 1/2 stuffed lobster and it was delicious. Even the veggies were cooked perfectly; al dente. My husband had the steak and said it was tender, flavorful and cooked perfectly. Our friends really enjoyed their steak and salmon dishes too. We will be back very soon to try more items from their very nice menu. Hats off to the chef, the staff and to the bartender for providing us with a memorable and yummy experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/2/2013
    After long highways and windy small roads, hubby and I reached this hidden gem. Very quaint, nautical, and intimate, it is nestled by the water in the middle of a neighborhood. There was barely any wait with a reservation. Due to restaurant week, waitstaff seemed overwhelmed and overworked (thus attentiveness was lower than norm). Drinks good, apps good, and main course good, there is really no room for complaint. Only thing is parking is dreadful when busy. P.S. Get those beignets!

    Appetizers (Littlenecks & Lobster Mac & Cheese) were excellent. My prime rib was cooked perfectly but the stuffing of my wife's baked stuffed shrimp was not good at all. It was mushy & watery with no flavor at all. We ordered creme brûlée for desert but we're told they were out. Overall I thought it was good, just flavor up that stuffing.
