Chef Brett Hulbert has it down pat! From the moment we walked in, the hostess treated us like family, the service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. Perfect place to meet up with our friends from Maryland after going to Longwood Gardens. Definitely will be returning!

This is the second time my husband and I ate at Portabello's and I must say it was a huge disappointment. The first time we came my husband said it was the best veal parmasean he ever had, so needless to say he was looking forward to that again. We happened to call the restaurant before leaving our hotel as... More

My husband and I came to Portabllo's in search of a good dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary after a couple days of touring local gardens, Longwood & Winterthur. What a disappointment! We were practically the only ones dining the Tuesday evening after Labor Day. All the more reason the chef should have had plenty of time to perfect our... More

Food at dinner was good but not outstanding. Ambiance was pleasant. Wait staff was not particularly good or polished. A bit disappointing.

We have eaten at Portabellos about 5 times over that last year and a half. We have always eaten delicious food served to us by a very friendly staff. I enjoy watching the chefs prepare meals in the open kitchen. The Steak Portabello is in the top 5 steaks I have ever eaten.

I have a number of food allergies. Most restaurants can adapt something on the menu that range from acceptable to nice. My visit to Portabellos was a happy exception. Upon learning of my dilemma, the owner came over to the table to better understand my situation, talked to the chef who made several suggestions then assigned the Suisse chef to... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable first experience at Portabello's. Mushroom soup and mushroom-artichoke spread were great starters to our meal. Both of our pasta entrees were outstanding. Our waitress Autumn was extremely helpful. We will definitely be back to this BYOB in Kennett Square.

Don't understand what other reviewers like about this place, it is mediocre at best. The only great thing was portobello fries, everything else just ordinary. Mushroom crepes were ok. Firecracker shrimp was extra spicy, it was difficult to discern the taste from all the heat. Mango ginger salad was pleasant. Beef stroganoff was a chunky slab of meat nothing to... More

Went for lunch. People are nice and food great but it took too long, so I had to woof my food down. Not something to do with a short lunch break, but good for long leisure lunch. I had the Portabello crab sandwich, out of this world. They know how to make sauces.

Having grown up in Kennett Square, but moved away many years ago after college, I'm continually amazed at how nice the downtown area is. This was my first visit to Portobello's and the experience was fantastic from start to finish. First by the attentiveness and friendly greeting by Alexandra. Then through the whole meal. Bread comes with a delicious mushroom... More
