Fabulous menu and service!

My husband surprised me with a birthday dinner at Portabellos on 1/30. It was the greatest experience. He contacted the owner ahead of time because it was my 50th, and he wanted to ensure a perfect dining experience. The owner, Sandra did everything to make this a wonderful night.

We came here with family after a long day at Longwood Gardens, so we were hungry and looking for a good meal, but we did have a reservation here. They had a table waiting for us, took our coats, and seated us. The place is very small and is a bit loud with the place being packed. I had ordered... More

After a wonderful evening at Longwood Gardens, our dining spot chosen (with reservations) was Portabello's. Highly recommended by a friend. This is a BYOB but not at all disappointed by that b/c you can bring in your own cocktail choice. The food and service was absolutely wonderful. The Owner made point to welcome us, and the the staff very friendly... More

My family and my parents joined us for a night out at this restaurant which we had never tried before. The menu was spectacular and the quiet atmosphere was perfect for us! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and very friendly. The Steak Portabello was phenomenal; my family raved over their choices as well. I would definitely recommend Portobello's for a... More

We arrived at the restaurant an hour early for our reservations and it was crowded. Nevertheless, the hostess (Sandra, the chef's wife) treated us beautifully and got us seated as soon as possible. Seating is limited so that the kitchen has a chance to properly prepare the food so reservations are a must. We sat only a short time drinking... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Portabello's this evening and it was an outstanding experience in every way. The restaurant is lovely and the staff, and particularly our server Autumn, was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. But the high point of our visit had to be the excellent cuisine. Portabello's is one of the finest restaurants we've eaten at in... More

We went to Portabello 's early on a Wednesday night and were invited by staff to select the table we wanted. The service was very good from beginning to end. Portabello 's is a cute row house style restaurant with nice tablecloths and napkins in the center of Kennett. Prices are average with other fine restaurants and offers a good... More

We went with a small group for "a big lunch" with plans to spend the rest of the day and evening at Longwood Gardens. This was the perfect place...great food, atmosphere, and service. The owner stopped by and explained the menu and our server made great recommendations. The french onion soup is some of the best I've ever had. Everything... More

Crab Cakes, Veal Short Ribs, and Mushrooms in Noodles all served just barely warm. Told waitress, she did nothing. Called owner next day she offered nothing. Won't be going back there again. There were 6 in our Party for Dinner and the owner offered nothing to make up for the problems even during the phone call the following day. Snippy... More
