While in PA, we wanted to experience as much as we could of the area in our three day two night visit. After eating at Portabello's the first night we agreed that there was no reason to go anywhere else. Our experience on the second night was as wonderful as the first. We highly recommend it!! We are hard to... More

My choice of restaurant in Kennett for that special "cut above" meal. The chief is internationally trained.

It was early for us to be having dinner, but we were in the area, and I had read good reviews about Portabellos', so we decided to go in. There were not many diners this evening, even though some other restaurants in the area were very busy. The waiter was very knowledgeable and efficient, as well as friendly without being... More

My wife and I took a day to explore Kennett Square, PA. We found the community to be enchanting. By chance we stopped at Portabello"s for lunch. The menu was varied and very reasonable. Our food was delicious. Our server, Brian, was knowledgeable and attentive. This is a can't miss treasure.

Spent 2 nights in Chadds Ford and had amazing meals both nights. The menu had unique dishes that were delicious. I enjoyed noodles with portobello mushrooms. My husband had calamari which was a thick steak, grilled with salsa. Best he's ever had. Our friends both selected the trout special and agreed the seasoning and preparation was delectable. We shared 4... More

What a hidden gem! Small, only about 16 tables so make reservations! First impression was warm and welcomed by the staff. Sandra, the owner was so personable and present. Just a lovely lady to talk to. Her husband is the Chef, and again...so nice and TALENTED! To start, we were presented with the most scrumptious warm bread from Brooklyn with... More

Came with wife and 2 friends for Kennett Square Mushroom festival and found Portabello's. Fantastic meal of Mahi-Mahi smothered in peach reduction. Others had roasted Duck which was by their accounting the best they ever had. Last person had Scallups wrapped in bacon, also said by friend the best he ever tasted. Service was impeccable by our waitress, Autumn, and... More

We split mushroom crepes and ginger goat cheese salad and both were fabulous! I can't wait to go back for the salad again. I was surprised how few people were in the restaurant for lunch I think they need to offer more combo lunches but if you can split with someone the food is awesome!

The food was delicious; creatively prepared by the chef. We went to the Portabello after an afternoon spent wondering the glories of Longwood Gardens. We went with a younger couple; friends of our daughter, and we all enjoyed the food and ambience. Loved that the chef and his wife came out afterward and chatted with us. I had the pecan... More

We took my mother-in-law to Portabello's after visiting the nearby Longwood Gardens. To tell you the truth, I didn't expect to find such a great restaurant in such a small town. We've lived in several major cities, and this was one of the better experiences at a restaurant in recent memory. What's great? The atmosphere, the food, the service. Also,... More
