4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I've been eating at Portabello for many years now. I cannot ever remember having a bad meal. We have had so many different dishes on the various menus over the years and they have all been very good. The service is great. The small bar has a decent selection and the drinks are never skimpy. Not a great wine list... More

This place has good food, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. During the week (Monday to Thursday), they have 2 for 1 dinners. My husband orders mama's sunday dinner and loves it. I had the shrimp in a cognac sauce that was delicious and they served it on top of gluten free pasta. Yum!

They have delicious sandwiches on pretzel rolls (they are soft) for only $7.95 with fries. Can't beat that.

I don't know what we really expected but to us our dinner was boring. Once we were served, we ate, paid the bill and left. while the dinner was good it just didn't stand out like we thought it would. Oh well, maybe next time.

Best bet is definitely the Italian egg rolls to start, and nice bowl of one of their pasta dishes. You can't go wrong. Also have had good experiences here for large parties.

On arriving their offer valet service which is a nice touch. Restaurant kept very cool in case you would like to bring a sweater. We opted to sit out on the back patio which was very nice. Enjoyed Kale Salad, Rice Balls, Butternut Soup, Mama's Sunday dinner and the double stuffed pork chop. Nice sized entrees. I just LOVE their... More

We had a very bad meal at Portobello Café, we both ordered Linguini with clam sauce and to our surprise the clams were empty. We were with other people so we did not want to make a fuss, but we feel we got ripped off.
