I've eaten at the Portrait House twice now (both midweek). The food is outstanding. Quite an inventive menu and every dish has been perfect. It is a more formal venue and the price reflects this but you actually leave the restaurant full up as the portions are generous, something lacking in many other "posher" restaurants! Only criticism is that it... More

This was our second visit this year and while the service is prompt and friendly and the food is good, we could not get away from the feeling that something is missing. Maybe it's because on both occasions the place was not very busy ( both visits on a Friday evening 8 o'clock) but there is a distinct lack of... More

It is some years since we visited Hoylake & in the interim it seems to have developed some nice trendy places to eat. The Portrait House fits the mould perfectly, trendy well presented venue for groups or couples. The menu is extensive and well priced something for all tastes. The service was OK not great but the food was good... More

I've been here previously this year and found the food to be average but not excellent as some other reviews may suggest. I had asparagus tempura for starters that was ridiculously over priced for the quantity and quality of the dish. For my main course I chose the mushroom burger with sweet potato fries as I fancied something hearty, yet... More

The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. All the staff were very attentive and pleasant. I was very impressed with having a vegetarian menu to choose from and loved the asparagus tempura. My partner enjoyed his steak and my wild mushroom tart was fabulous. Many Thanks to The Portrait House for a wonderful night.

Me and my husband took our 11yr old son here for lunch after we'd been the cinema, we worried a bit that he wouldn't like anything as he's not yet an adventurous eater (think Subway being as exotic as it gets) to our surprise he ordered the same as me & hubby (fillet medallions, black pudding in creme mustard sauce)...

We arrived hot, slightly grumpy, and quite late, not really knowing what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised. The waiting staff were attentive, efficient and friendly, with service at a good pace. The meal was good to very good, with the added touch of lots of beautifully cooked vegetables to accompany our main course. The smoked mackerel fish cakes... More

i was in liverpool early and was really in need of something big and tasty for breakfast. The Portrait House looked inviting and after seeing on the outside menu that they did a cooked breakfast i decided i would try it. The waitress was really nice and welcoming and the building itself was lovely. I decided on the light breakfast... More
