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

Before I began to express my sentiments out loud I was wondering why on a Friday evening on such a beautiful fall / Indian summer day this place wasn't packed to the rafters. The waiter was more than pleasant and attentive. We had the octopus appetizer at it was done perfectly and satisfied two of us when the portion was... More

Recently participated in an event in the Banquet Facility. The facility is nicely laid out for small groups (75 or less). But on this evening the bar was poorly staffed (one individual who seemed like she wanted to be someplace else). When the Buffet was served you almost thought that much of the fare was dumped out of frozen bags... More

It is a beautiful venue , and had an extensive menu. My appetite was prime and when I found regional Italians specialties on the menu I was prime for a... More

We were here for lunch - got there at 1. Parking lot was full. Had to park in adjacent office parking lot. The restaurant looks like an Italian villa - inside and out. The lunch menu is extensive - we had salmon salads which were delicious and very reasonable ($9). The only drawback is that it is very noisy. Could... More

Went to lunch here today with my wife. The building is beautiful; it looks like an Italian villa. We ate out on the patio and we sat near the Koa pond. It was very lovely to hear the water trickling down the rocks as the fish swim in the bottom. Juan was our waiter and he seemed either distracted or... More
