For a new restaurant/bar the atmosphere is a bit empty, and lacked character/style. Kinda feels like walking into a dentist office when u first step in off street. menu consists primarily of...

New restaurant in St. John's area, lovely atmosphere, service great but a cheaper glass of wine would be great, $9.50 a tad bit steep. Why does this have to happen? Good was good but costly, thank God the view was exceptional!

We went there as a group of 21 for a Birthday Dinner. You would think with so many people that it would be chaos but not so. The service could not have been better. The food was good! Will be back again.

We have eaten at Portobellos several times in the last few years and have never been disappointed, and last night's meal was the best we have had at this restaurant. The Moroccan Rack of Lamb was outstanding, perfectly prepared and flavourful -- and the portion was quite substantial!! I'm not a veggie kind of guy and my wife was shocked... More

The ambience, food, wine selection and service was top notch. i ordered the cod tongues followed by pan fried cod, though they offered a special version. My daughter ordered the scallops followed by a beef special. My son in law ordered the evening special... More

My husband and I dropped by for a quick bite to eat, while in the downtown area. We both ordered the fish and chips. The portions were a nice size but there was so much liquid in the dish it made the batter soggy. I wondered if the food was cover prior to serving. It wasn't what I expected. Loved... More

Felt like I was in a hotel resturant. The food was awful. We ordered the pork ribs and pasta. Sounded very appealing on the menu. Tasted like pork cooked in a slow cooker placed over cooked egg noodles . Awful, would never eat there again.
