“Great Food, Great Ambience”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Portabello's is a BYOB--not a problem as a liquor store is conveniently located across the street. The menu has wonderful offerings from seafood to pasta. The hostess, chef, and waitress were very friendly and accommodating. The dishes were well presented and the desserts, which were provided through a local baker, were above average. We got to chatting so much with the waitress that she forgot our request for bread which she should have given us before our entrees and she forgot our coffee. So--don't distract her! It's a very cozy restaurant in an historical building and one that I would highly recommend!

“One of my BEST NEW YEAR'S”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

After Canceling my previous reservations upon finding this Marvelous (BYOB) Restaurant. We ended up spending New Years in Delight. This Lovely couple and their staff can not do enough for you. The per fixed menu was Superb the food was done to perfection. The Love that this couple as for themselves (as you can see on the photo) reflects on the Great Staff , Marvelous Food and lovely Restaurant. A Foodie my self for over forty years I can say it is a MUST GO !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Everything a little too pungent”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

The burger was good, but the table next to the front window smelled like a cat's litter box. Too much horse radish on the roast beef sandwich.

“Best Restaurant in the Area”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We have been to Portabello's a number of times sine the new owners took over and have always been thrilled by the food, service, and view of the open kitchen. The price of the wine is great as well-it is a bring your own. But if you forget to bring a bottle, you can buy one from the wine tasting bar across the street. The menu changes regularly and the Chef's variety and specials are great!. Portabello's is a great addition the Kennett!

“Best Mushroom Wrap!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

KSQ (local shorthand for Kennett Square) is charming - it is also the Mushroom Capital of the World! Who knew? THis restaurant was tasty and cozy. There's also a great thrift store down the street that supports a great charity - pay what you can for whatever you find. We found a lamb cake mold for Easter - seriously had been looking for years for one. Great little place!
