This place is excellent food always. Must get cold seafood salad. They are sometimes overwhelmed so MUST call ahead and get reservation or wait times on Sat & Sunday. Excellent prices, full bar and steaks good quality. I am a local, but I never have issue with quality ! Eaten here at least 25 times.....

If you check the previous reviews, you will note they are split between good and awful. That should be a red flag because it indicates a terrible inconsistency in service and food quality. At these prices, you don't need to gamble. We were a party of nine for New Years Eve and while the restaurant was very busy, they should... More

Only reason I would give five star for this restaurant is new Sushi Chef lady - I think her name is Julie, and all sushi she makes. Bravo it was so awesome, tasty & delicious. I never ever had this kind of sushi. BTW it is not only sushi it is art. You should go and try.... Highly recommend ...

For such an established restaurant, last night was a big disappoint. We had a small party of four and sat upstairs overlooking the dance floor. No issue getting reservations or our requested seating area. There are two menus to choose from but the wine list is very limited and highly overpriced. Some wines were 300% above retail. The building and... More

We started our meal with both hot and cold Antipasto trays. Both were fantastic! A great combination and very large portions. Entrees were delicious, but a few were overcooked, perhaps because of our large (15) group. Service was good, but knowledge of the menu and wine list was lacking. Our request for an after dinner Grappa resulted in a round... More

Held a large family dinner on a busy Saturday afternoon here. Prices for lunch were quite reasonable and the food was good. Pretty Christmas decorations too! We were there for quite a while and never felt rushed by the management or wait staff. My only complaint is the lack of an elevator! Real problem for one member of our group.

We attended an anniversary party last evening. Portobello is a beautiful restaurant with a genuine Tuscan appearance. We were greeted by a lovely waitperson who really did a wonderful job of providing service to our group of 8. The menus are confusing: One is "Italian" the other "steak" and it took quite a while to figure out what we should... More

I attended a Bridal shower at this restaurant. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was very good. Also, I found the staff to be very attentive.
