It is a small but very cozy place and the food is very good. They have an open kitchen so you watch the food being prepared. There presentation is excellent.. It is a BYOB restaurant so you save money.

Couldn't have had a better experience from the moment we walked in to this upscale, fun, hip vibe restaurant on the Main Street In Kennett Square. It's fun to watch the chefs prepare the food while you dine - we enjoyed that. We met Sandra, the lovely owner who graciously took our coats, checked in with us multiple times to... More

The owners are very sociable and helpful. The servers are very courteous and enjoyable to talk with. They have a very nice young staff. The food is fantastic. Their mushroom soup is to die for. My husband had duck and he said it was the best he ever had. Very crispy but not burnt. We found this great restaurant last... More

On a recent trip to Pennsylvania we visited Kennett Square where we had a wonderful dining experience at Portabellos. Not only was the food outstanding and beautifully presented but the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and friendly. Attention to detail was excellent and the Chef/Owner Brett Hulbert personally went from table to table to speak to the diners. The... More

Wonderful restaurant! Cozy and friendly atmosphere, with excellent service. All 6 of us loved our appetizers and entrees, whether it was seafood, pasta or a meat dish. BYOB also helped the overall value of the meal.

Decided to try Portabello's on the basis of good reports. It lived up to it's name as a homely looking restaurant serving honest food. My biggest challenge was making a choice from the menu options. We were served by Autumn, who was both friendly and efficient without being in any way pushy. I opted for the fried Brussel sprouts to... More

Had a delightful and delicious dinner at Portabello's last night; I reserved the chef's table which is a high top across from the open kitchen so you can watch the chef prepare your food and everyone else's. The kitchen is well organized, no chaos or screaming like they like to show on TV. The preparation and presentation is a pleasure... More

What a great location and wonderful ambience with the open kitchen. Service was slow, quirky and lacked any personality: seemed that the kitchen was not interested in getting us our food. We waited a long time for our first course and for our meal- maybe that's their plan? Food was over cooked, over spiced and lacked care- French onion soup... More

We visited Portabello's after a long day at Longwood Gardens, and let me say, it was AMAZING! I have a very severe nut allergy which makes it hard for me to eat at a lot of places. The server genuinely cared about my allergy and made me feel safe. They even cleaned the entire salad prep surface to make sure... More

My wife and I love to visit Longwood Gardens frequently to celebrate the color and beauty of each season. The highlight of our day is having dinner at Portabellos. I think our day is more enjoyable in anticipation of the wonderful food and relaxing atmosphere. (Restaurant is BYOB) A few tables are also set up out front if you like... More
