Great menu, service was on point and the desserts were Super! Steak was cooked perfectly and the seafood we had was very fresh with remarkable sauces. Hoping to try the outside dining in the summer.

Best soup, sublime tuna steak, amazing deserts. BYOB, cozy and friendly, you must like a view of the kitchen because you can't avoid it; it's part of the charm.

We were headed to see Christmas decorations at Longwood Garden and decided to have lunch first. Don't remember who came up with the idea--but it was a good one. And I am glad I called for reservations--not so much because we needed them as because they reminded us that they are BYOB. We aren't big eaters and opted to split... More

We made a trip to Kennett Square for the New Year celebration visiting Hagley Museum, Long Wood Gardens and Brandy wine River Museum. The first restaurant that we had dinner in was Portabello's . It was beyond all expectations. Food was so good, does not matter what you order. All 4 of us had different orders and still all was... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant after a long walking trip to Longwood Gardens. The chef and owner and his wife are the kindest and most inviting people. We were there for our anniversary and they made a big to do over us. We just love this warm charming place. They food is top notch. VERY tasty combos and I... More

This was our first visit, but we'll be back! Everything was wonderful -- the way we were welcomed at the door; the friendly service; the incredible food; and the ambiance. We were seated at a high top by the kitchen, which gave us a respite from the large, boisterous groups at the front and provided a front-row seat to the... More

This is a neighborhood gem. It is a BYOB with a good variety of tasty dishes and a cosy atmosphere. Although all of the food was good, the high points of the meal were the mushroom soup and the fresh pasta. There were nice touches such as checking our coats as we came in and space heaters positioned around the... More

We drove an hour, waited another half hour for Portabello and even tried calling. About noon, a half hour after the advertised opening time, someone noticed us waiting, came to the door and said the restaurant was closed for a holiday party. I can understand forgetting to post the closing on their website but there is no excuse for not... More

My pet peeve is chef's who attempt to improve the taste by adding too many seasonings. For example adding sun dried tomatoes to salmon with mustard sauce caused the salmon to end up dry. The Beef Stroganoff was good but too many mushrooms for my tastes. I can say the wait staff was excellent and the hostess was very attentive.... More
