Just went for a quick dinner....food was great, service at the bar was great BUT when leaving, one look at the kitchen made me feel sick! The floor was covered in dirty towels and everything looked greasy :( If they're going to have an open kitchen they should try and keep it clean!! Will probably throw out our take-home portions!!

A family member brought us here after she had an enjoyable experience here. She had drinks and blue point oysters which, evidently, were wonderful. Four of us had dinner here. The atmosphere is lovely, and the staff friendly, attentive and accommodating. Two of us requested the oysters, but they were unavailable. I ordered their fish and chips. The fish was... More

What a find! First visit and we loved everything! Monday night, so not over crowded but steady turn over. The ambiance was lovely with the fireplace in the corner. I had the Salmone. It was one of the best I have ever had. Served with crab, (roasted) brussel sprouts, roasted fingerling potatoes in a lemon tarragon cream....I WILL DREAM ABOUT... More

La Porta is the little restaurant with big ideas. The owners did a fantastic job renovating the old Locust Crest Tavern into a neat, clean, attractive restaurant. This was our second visit for dinner. Our opinions remain unchanged. The food is delicious! The menu is rather limited. Without the daily specials, there was really not much I would have preferred...

This was a former dive bar. The new owners completely renovated the building and returned much of it to it's original 1800s state. Excellent food and a great bar. The food is much like you might find in Italy.

What a great deal. Gourmet pizza for the price of a regular pie. This is our Friday night "go-to" meal.

My wife and I have been here many times and will continue to go back. We've tried a variety of dishes and have had lots of good ones. The nacho appetizer is unique. Brick oven pizzas are awesome. We've had various pasta and seafood dishes and all were excellent. They have rotating taps at the bar with a good selection... More

I think la Porta is the best restaurant in Media. The food is always excellent. It's a great mix of classic dishes and be ideas always executed well. I haven't had a bad meal. The wine list is good as is the mix of beers. The restaurant's only downside is it's important to book a table as it is popular.... More
