Excellent food and service. Our second trip and we were not disappointed. Great care, attention and skill are taken to prepare your meal. I had roast duck that was smoked on the premises. The lamb was served in a port reduction. They make their own bacon. Need to know more? Okay. The seafood is insanely fresh and prepared properly. My... More

I laugh when I read about a restaurant being noisy ... there's no such thing as a quiet restaurant in Houston, so I didn't even notice! We got here earlier than our reservation, trying to beat the rain, and they had no problem making room for us. Hubby had a steak, I had a luscious striped bass with a lobster... More

If you are looking for unique food, then this is the place. The mussels were so good, they could be served as a dessert. Great selection of local wines. We ordered off the specials menu and our meals were incredible. I had a stuffed pork tenderloin that was cooked to perfection and I can't say enough about the seasoning. My... More

Well, the headline tells the story. Food was well-prepared, well-presented and flavourful. But having to shout in order to be heard doesn't work for me. Service was OK but no better.

On our visit to the Finger Lakes, we ate here twice. And we were only in the area for 3 days. We didn't have reservations but the wait was worth it. Service was wonderful and the food was awesome. The list of specials was long but worth listening to each dish sounded better than the next. We had beef, fish... More

We were looking for someplace new to go, found a review for Ports Cafe, so thought we'd give it a try. Very rustic looking from the outside; a few tables for outside eating. When you walk in the door it's VERY LOUD! Lots of good conversation and laughing!! Not the place to go if you're looking for quiet and romantic.... More
