My wife and I and 2 friends had dinner Saturday night at Portabello's. This restaurant is not large and therefore has a cozy feeling to it, especially with the fireplace going. The hostess was very friendly and seated us promptly. This is a BYOB restaurant with no corkage charge which is great. The hostess brought the correct glasses for our... More

My daughter and I had dinner at Portabello's this evening after a visit to Longwood Gardens. Having read the reviews here, I very much wanted to try this restaurant, so my daughter treated me to a somewhat belated birthday dinner, and we WILL be back again! From the warm greeting by the owner, Sandra, the moment we entered, to the... More

We ate at Portabello's a couple years ago when we were visiting Kennett Square. We were back in town and decided to go to dinner at Portabello's. What a fantastic dinner we had - in every way. It was cold and snowy outside but very cozy and inviting in the restaurant. You do not want to miss dinner here.

This is an OK place. The food was good, no major complaints but there was the feeling that it could/should have been a level better. The servers were very friendly and helpful which made the experience overall good. You probably won't go wrong here.

Ok, I am a foodie. This restaurant hit all my buttons. Small and intimate, with superior food and service. Our server Alex was WONDERFUL. She knew the menu and how things were prepared. We started with portabella fries with horseradish cream. This was followed by roasted squash bisque. The special was baked flounder Florentine with brown butter hollandaise. It was... More

Although the mushroom is most commonly spelled portobello, the restaurant is the Portabello, which is an alternative spelling. The name means little when the food served is as good as I experienced when dining there on a Sunday afternoon.If you would enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, be reminded that it is a BYOB.

Delicious portobello fries, soups, portobello cheesesteak, calamari steak, and veal& portobello meatballs. BYOB so run across the street to pick up a bottle of wine. Craft root beer and ginseng tea... More

Last night, the wife and I chose to go to Portabello’s in Kennett Square. First thing, we were late due to traffic, we called ahead since we had reservations and they were very accommodating. Second, it’s a BYOB which we always enjoy because we can concentrate on the food versus worrying about what to drink. For appetizers we had: Mushroom... More
