Always enjoy the Portobello as the whole fussy family can find something on the menu. Service is always good as is the food ambiance is not overpowering. Can be pricey but where in Downtown Disney isn't?? Will gladly go back. Menu needs to be changed more regularly as it seems to be the same comfort food each visit!

We were dropping my daughter off to begin her Disney College Internship Program. When she was all settled, we wanted to have dinner with her before leaving and went to Downtown Disney. We weren't sure if we'd find anything because we didn't have reservations. We were seated within 15 minutes and had the most amazing dinner. Our server was very... More

Great food and service. We went to Disney and wanted a good place to dine for my son's birthday. We had reservations but still had to wait while they prepared a table. Overall, the menu was able to satisfy all of us (we were a party of 8 with 4 children) and the food was very very good. Prices were... More

The service was superb and they were flexible with their menu for my daughter and I who don't eat meat. Lovely meal.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived. We were seated and the air conditioning seemed to be on super high, we were freezing. But if we waited for another table there was no guarantee when we would be seated again, REALLY???? Ridiculous! Luckily I carry around little sweaters for my daughter and I so we put them on but...

A very overpriced. Poor meal. We found Orlando to be quite good value but this place was the pits. Disappointed with Disney as it is always high quality. I had the pizza which tasted of cardboard

First impressions are everything. We approch the restaurant and there is a huge crowd hanging out the door. Mind you, everyrhing is done by reservation and we arrive for our selected time.. 7:40. We stand in line to talk to the "kid" who is assisting people around the desk. It appeared there was another woman helping some guests but she... More

This restaurant is pretty typical for a Downtown Disney World restaurant. The food is decent and the prices are on the higher side. They don't seem to have their act together as far as the outside seating goes. We were directed to wait at an outside entrance for a table on the terrace. The wait staff was setting up tables...

Had dinner here on a Saturday night at 9pm and they still had an hour wait, so we sat at the bar. The 2 bartenders that served us were super friendly and always checked on us. We had the mushroom pizza which was small and greasy, an arugula salad which was bitter and calamari where the breading would fall completely... More
