I visited Portobello Restaurant with a friend for lunch, we were not extremely hungry and were just going to have a salad and maybe an appetizer. We decided to share the salad and get just 1 appetizer. We were pleasantly surprised when the salad came out divided already on 2 separate plates. We ordered a salad that had besides the normal lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, had apples, walnuts, crumpled blue chesse and it was very very good and the fact that they split it on 2 seperate dishes was great. Normally when you ask to split something you get an attitude and you have to beg for a second plate, but the wait staff was only too happy to accomodate. I've been back serveral times and have always been happy with the food and the service.

Full size dinner portions are served for lunch Mon-Sat only cost between $8-$11 per entree. Food and decor are outstanding. I have been to this restaurant several times with many clients and friends and no one has left disappointed. The Osso Bucco is incredible and another of my favorites is the lobster risotto. Worth checking out!
