4 went here to celebrate our anniniversary and use a Groupon discount coupon. 2 dishes were ok, the clams and pork stew and the sole. The shrimp was soaked in butter. I had the grouper. It was inedible. I passed it around and everyone gagged. It was doused in salt and tasted awful. The slice of eggplant underneath was raw.... More

We enjoyed our early dinner experience. The wait staff were professional a friendly. We ordered the chorizo sausage appetizer that was served flaming. I was disappointed with the friend calamari. It was in a tempura style batter and the sauce was hard to figure out. The atmosphere is nice for families and couple alike.

My husband & I have visited this fine restaurant twice, and both times were extremely pleased with our meals. Neither of us our of Portuguese decent, so we can't speak to the authenticity of the various dishes we've sampled, however, we can attest to the deliciousness, the freshness, the outstanding variety, and the fair, affordable prices.

4 of us went to O'Porto for the first time, during the Taste of Hartford 2014 and we were pleasantly surprised!! We loved the building, an old industrial building done over in a cozy dining room and nice bar area. Our waitperson, Dee, was most helpful when trying to choose from the large menu. We were brought warm Portuguese rolls... More

Family run operation with weekly luncheon specials that change monthly and priced very reasonably for nice midday meal that beats anything you could get from a drive through franchise. Sergio and his waitstaff are very attentive to all their patrons. You get a good feel for what it must be like to be in Europe itself when dining here. Big... More

We were here a few years ago and my wife kept telling me that we should go back. I had forgotten why I had been in no hurry to return. Last night we were in the area for another function and I remembered it was nearby and that they had seafood, so we went. I remember now why I was... More

The portuguese steak is pretty awesome. Please visit this place if you would like a great culinary experience for a very fair price. I hear a lot of people say they would like to go here, but haven't yet, and it would be a shame you were to miss it.

As a Portuguese person, let me start out by saying I originally liked this restaurant and have always recommended it to anyone who was looking to try good authentic Portuguese food. However, after my most recent visit, I will no longer be bragging about it to anyone, but rather point them in a whole different direction. I don't understand what... More

If you're looking for the taste of Portugal here in Connecticut, I recommend O'Porto Restaurant for fresh, authentic and delicious Portuguese cuisine. The flavors are rich and the taste gets better with each bite. There's something for everybody to enjoy whether you're a vegetarian, love meat, chicken or fish. I recommend their "paella," a popular dish found in Latin cuisines... More
