It was ok. My children took me there for my birthday. We had to wait a little while. With children it was a little hectic. Food was good. Little pricey. Service was medium.

Several couples went with us for a Saturday night dinner and everyone left impressed. Staff were very pleasant and attentive, but not overbearing. Asian meatball soup special was light and flavorful. My husband had scallops that were some of the most delicious I have ever tasted. My salmon was perfectly cooked and accompanied by root vegetables that were yummy. The... More

I recently had lunch at Portabello's, a restaurant we visit anytime we are in Kennett Square. Our perfect day is to go to Longwood Gardens until we are hungry then head to Portabello's. They stop seating at 2:30 but, if you get there before that time, you will have a fantastic meal. I believe dinner is served after 5:00 pm.... More

I like this place, good food, good service, good atmosphere. I did not put 5 as the snails I try where not enough tasty, so I was a bit disappointed. But I will go back there one more time.

We went to Portabello's to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Turns out we made the reservation at another restaurant. Uh oh. Well, no problem. Even though the place was bustling, the hostess (who is the Chef's wife) said give me a minute. She was aware it was our anniversary. She came back an said, you can sit at the Chefs table!... More

Came here on a whim one day and boy were we pleasantly surprised. I'm not even a big fan of mushrooms but seeing this is their speciality I had to order the mushroom soup. We shared a cup of and immediately wished we both ordered a bowl to ourselves. It was the best mushroom soup I ever ate in my... More

This restaurant takes the dining experience seriously. We sat at a high table overlooking the open kitchen -- request it. Bread with a mushroom/tomato humus (ymmm). For appetizers: mussels in a wonderful broth and my husband had the mushroom crepe. I selected the sole stuffed with crab (outstanding and very rich with huge crab lumps). My husband had the veal...

The best mushroom soup I've ever had. Owner stopped by to check on us and chatted for quite some time (only a couple of other customers present).

We've always wanted to try this restaurant. We had a delightful experience. The wait staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. The owners treated us like family. Our food was excellent. I had the sea food pasta dish. It was very tasty. They asked on a scale of 1-10 how spicy I wanted the sauce. My choice of 6... More
