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

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.

A group of us went for my friend's birthday last week and unfortunately neither of us was impressed with our meal. Several of us had the scallops for an appetizer and the salmon for or mains, both of which were overcooked. The risotto was ok, and the fish (as part of the fish and chips main) was soggy and seemed... More

My son and new daughter in law were married here on Friday Sept 19th and what a wedding it was! Perfection plus! I told the bride & groom that all the comments were amazing! Impeccable service, food, timing and delivery! The day and night were perfect! It was simply classy! Nothing was too much trouble for Portabellos staff! We lingered... More

I stopped in to Granite with some friends on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was casual yet trendy. The decor is quite nice with touches of granite throughout. The cocktail menu was varied and the red sangria superb- tasty and large! The appetizer menu also contained a good variety of items. I sampled the seared scallops- yummy! I ordered the... More
