Port is a very nice place to have a special dinner. The service is good and the food is also very good. I also enjoy the outside around the firepits with the supplied blankets. It is a really nice way to finish your dinner with a desert. However this comes with a cost, Port is an expensive.

This is our local neighbourhood restaurant. We go visit Port about 5 or 6 times a year usually. On our past visit, we got what we expect. Solid service, and a well executed dish. I am impressed with the consistency of quality from this restaurant. And everything on the menu tastes good. Nothing over the top, but solid good tasting... More

Met a friend who was visiting Pickering from out of town. Having never been to Pickering myself, I called another friend who lived there, to get a restaurant recommendation. "Port" came the very quick and assured reply, so Port it was. To complicate matters a little, my friend is a strict vegan, but no problem for the kitchen. With a... More

A Brunch was planned with 3 choice selection for 65 people. We were allowed to bring our own floral table centerpieces, balloons and area for the incoming gifts for the new Mom. The staff were very accommodating, polite.

If there was an opportunity to give it a zero, I would. Beautiful atmosphere. Cold food, and I mean cold to the touch. Lousy service. I feel bad for my friend because I'm sure she paid a lot for the place. Will not return. It was the first impression for many of us, I'm sure not a one will ever... More

There is a lot of hype about this restaurant. Nicely decorated dining room. The view was good but it's winter so it got dark quickly. I thought for $38 I would get an amazing cooked steak but it was soggy and greasy with grill marks on just one side. It had a sooty flavour. The veggies and the mash potatoes... More

Had never been to Port before but it's in a beautiful spot, right on the water. Unfortunately in the winter it's dark so early so there's not much of a view for dinner, but the inside of the restaurant was also really nice. Food quality was good. Brussel sprouts were amazing, burger was also really good.

I have lived in Pickering a while and while very enthused about the patio and ambience of Port, found the food lacking. In attempting to be downtown chic, the Port made the portions very artistic, and tasty but tiny tiny portions left you asking I paid what for that? I recently revisited Port, and while I cannot speak to the... More

I have been here several times. The dining room is very elegant and the view from the patio is spectacular. Unfortunately, the food is expensive and I have always found it to be disappointing.

Have dined here a few times, for either business or a birthday celebration. The food is well cooked but I wished there was more selection or daily features. Not many vegetarian options and I couldn't bring vegan friends here. The location and view is amazing.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! We will always accommodate dietary restrictions. In the next months we will have a vegetarian option available on the menu. Until then we can create anything! Todd More
