I have gone to this restaurant at least 15 + times in the last 10 years as I work close by and quite often, if we need a place for a group lunch we go here. In the past service was hit or miss as well as the food. I've had some decent food like the chef salads, and some... More

New Year's Eve 2016...I called a month ago to make a reservation and spoke with Amanda. I was very specific in asking if the menu was a limited NYE menu or if they were offering their full and very extensive everyday menu. I was assured it was their regular everyday menu. I called the week before NYE to confirm our... More

Every December 24th we make reservations at Portobello's. Reservations are a MUST! We had 5:00 seating time and were promptly seated when we arrived. We did witness a party wanting to be seated who DID NOT have a reservation. This place is so popular it is packed and making your reservation, even weeks before Christmas Eve, is the only way...

This place sucks. Had reservations for 6 pm for 8 people. They were still sitting people who had 5 pm reservations. Running around with no leadership. So UN professional. Don't eat here ever. Worst restaurant in the world.

Luches are fantastic, portions are as big as dinners, the lobster risotto $10 was great, all entres included salad, the most expensive is about $14 that is a huge seafood platter, charbroiled burgers are good size $8, try ossobucco $10, ingredients fresh, good quality for the money. Place is also beautiful just like an Italian Village.

Portobello is a large and good restaurant. Several different eating areas as well as menu choices, the food is good enough, generous and moderately priced. I don't know how far we would travel for Portobello but it is 5 minutes from home so we go on occasion.

Horrible experience, 2.5 hours waiting for appitisers & drinks, the meals never came, food was quite mediocre at best. Waiters told us not to come on a Saturday night its a disaster. Waiters were fighting amongst themselves and blaming the kitchen staff. After handing us a bill for $300+ with no meals, the manager comped the whole thing. Never going... More
