Surprising charming.

Excellent meals here. The waitstaff said the kitchen could make whatever we wanted. I got lemon veal instead of lemon chicken-it was delicious. We loved that you can see the cooking staff.

This was our second time at Portabello's and just as good as the first! The restaurant is warm and very inviting, tastefully decorated and has a wonderful staff. The food is delicious and you can bring your own bottle of wine. Our friends, who had never been to the restaurant before, absolutely loved it. We enjoyed our dinner and two... More

We first met the chef at a cooking demonstration. He taught us how to make mushroom soup. We decided to follow him back to the restaurant to try the rest of the food. We have never had a bad meal in many visits. We have also converted our friends.

This is our go to restaurant. It is a BYOB and the food is very good. The place is a little noisy so not great for a romantic dinner. The food is consistent and reasonably priced. I do recommend it.

We found this spot through the reviews that others had written. Thank You! My wife and I were visiting Longwood Gardens (great day trip) and wanted to have a nice dinner at the end of the day. We were absolutely blown away by this place! The atmosphere is very cozy and the open kitchen was impressive. From the first step... More

This was my second visit. The flounder was very fresh but the portion was quite small and you would expect lump crabmeat as part of the package for $32. The crabmeat stuffing was bland and weak. Was a letdown versus first visit where I found the lamb shank quite excellent

I usually get the chicken parm because it's the best known to man, but I got the lamb shank and the chef knocked another one outta the park. It was amazing! We go here 3-4 times a month now and it's always a slam dunk. Food is really good and well prepared. This place is top notch, and can compete... More

Visting Chadds Ford PA and staying at the FAIRVILLE INN ( excellent ) our hosts suggested PORTABELLO'S, a chef owned BYOB restaurant. It was a Wednesday evening and we were greeted with a warm smile and a BIG welcome!! The menu is a special surprise as there were many starters and entrees that we would liked to have tried. Great...

We met the same friends for dinner because we all agreed it was worth another visit. The service was great and the food excellent. Two of us had the duck which is done perfectly. the other meals were also wonderful. The fact that it is BYO is a real plus.

Wonderful service, very flexible and accommodating. I forgot 3 people with food restrictions in a party of 15 - was no problem for them to adjust. Great price for three wonderful meals: Chicken parm, veal Madeira, crab cakes. Bread with butter, hummus, mushroom soup, salad was all excellent! Would highly recommend. Food portions were huge ( especially chicken parm!)
