Elizabeth of Portofino's
Elizabeth's Portofino is a place you can come casually dressed and be seated in the cafe, or you can be seated in the elegant dining room which is filled with flowers and candlelit tables. Both share the aroma of the kitchen which is serving hearty ethnic Italian dishes and light fare as well. You can't pass up the roasted garlic served with warm bread and extra virgin olive oil brought to every table. Also, in the warmer weather, come check out the outdoor patio overlooking the cranberry pond. You can order from the regular menu or the bistro menu in all three dining rooms. Come see the old meet the new. Elizabeth of Portofino's is here to stay.
A perennial favorite. Turned out to be restaurant week which we took advantage of. Everything was great as usual.
Everything was very good with the exception of the prime rib. I was expecting an actual rib or thick slice of meat but instead I got a thin, tough piece of meat that was more like pot roast. I think staff should let guests know it’s not an actual rib as we know it. I didn’t send it back bc it looked like it was cooked medium but didn’t realize it was tough until I started eating it.
The food was fantastic! Ambiance was on point. Our server Brendan was wonderful!
Elizabeth and her staff are very attentive. The food and atmosphere are top notch.
Wonderful Italian specialty menu choices, daily specials and scrumptious desserts. All topped off with their complimentary taste of their homemade Lemoncello! Does not dissapoint!
When I made the reservation, I specifically asked for a quiet area as my husband is hearing impaired. Well they were nice enough not to sit us near the bar, but sat us in the back room. At first, we were very appreciative that they had taken our request into consideration. However, shortly after, a large party was seated. Needless to say, it wasn't a quiet area for very long.
Excellent service, ambiance, and delicious food!
Outstanding as usual. Fresh ingredients and excellent service. Elizabeth and her staff pay attention to the details and it makes the dining experience outstanding. The new expanded menu is terrific. Try the crab cakes appetizer, they are simply excellent.
The food was very good - waiter could have been better - martinis glasses could have been fuller - would go back & sit in bar area
We visited for New Year's Eve - the place was packed, but the food, service, and atmosphere of Elizabeth of Portofino's was excellent. Highly recommended.
Love love love this place! Food and service are always great!!! Best Caesar salad and chicken francaise anywhere!
Well prepared meals swiftly served. Would appreciate more GF options and designations as GF on the menu. Valet parking was odd for such a small parking lot
Great food, great service. Good variety of dinner selections. Reasonably priced.
I dined at Portifino on Thursday evening and learned they were launching a new menu that night. Our server explained dishes of interest in great detail and with refreshing enthusiasm.
The food was excellent. I had a seafood pasta which was fresh, flavorful, cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. The buerre blanc sauce was light with a touch of lemon. The baked stuffed shrimp was moist and delicious. We were too full for dessert but enjoyed the complimentary limoncello.
The decor is lovely, warm and inviting. Excited for our next visit!
Arrived at this restaurant and we were greeted in a timely manner. Our table was being set at the time of our reservation. The waitstaff was caring, polite and friendly. The food was severed hot and and timed from apps to desserts.
I had a delicious filet mignon cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal and the complimentary lemon chiello.
Always good there. Newly redone facility. Recommend to everyone.
Was there with a group of 5. The food was very good and a couple of us had special requests which were accepted graciously. Service was cheerful and friendly. I'd definately go again.
Wonderful food with incredible service. Everything is on point and I would recommend Elizabeths to anyone.
My husband and I went on a date and we had an amazing time. Wonderful food and amazing friendly staff. Will go back
I've been coming to Elizabeth's of Portofino since I was a kid, literally for 30+ years. In that time, it's surely had some highs and lows just as you'd expect any family-owned restaurant to have over so many years of business. But suffice to say, Portofino is now for sure at the height of its current life cycle.
The ingredients were fresh, the meal preparation and presentation were superb, everything we ate was just as delicious as expected (if not more), service was top-notch, and one can hardly imagine a better selection of wine and custom cocktails. All this for a cost well below their nearest competition's much higher prices.
Portofino was the perfect place to have a an intimate birthday with family, and I can see celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions there as well. The complimentary birthday shots of limoncello were a nice extra touch.
The only slightly less than outstanding thing I can recall were the desserts. The cheesecake was not authentically "New York Style" as it claimed, and I remember thinking Key Lime Pie was a little out of place on such a thoroughly Italian menu. It might have been delicious but I opted for a real Italian classic — the tiramisu — which I've got to say was fantastic.
Maybe they didn't knock the ball completely out of the park, but they still scored a home run with me.
The service was excellent, the food was delicious! Time between courses was perfect. We really enjoyed this restaurant and will go back in the future.
We we're a party of 4 on a Saturday evening. Our table was ready upon arrival. The interior of the restaurant is very well done. Our servers were excellent. Very attentive and accommodating. We ordered a great bottle of Pinot noir. I had the lasagna which was excellent. The Tuscan bread was very good as well. Great meal....great ombianc. We'll be back and I highly recommend
Friendly staff and owner
Excellent service and food. Very accommodating and reasonably priced with great quality!!!
It was our first time there and won't be our last. Food and service was excellent!
I don't have a bad thing to say about Elizabeth's Absolutely delicious!
We will definitely go back. Delicious food and great service!
Elizabeth’s is a favorite spot for my Son and I to meet.
It does not disappoint, you can count on wonderful service and delicious food every time!
Overall was a great dining experience. The appetizers, wine and entrees were delicious.
The appetizers were delicious. My wife loved her lobster ravioli. I enjoyed my lasagna very much. It was a wonderful date. Our server Justin was very attentive and the valet parking was a huge help.
We totally enjoyed our date night at Elizabeth's Portofino's Restaurant. Our appetizer, soup and entrees were all excellent. We will definitely be back soon.
Always an excellent dining experience at Elizabeth’s. The consistent excellence from the food to the service is simply exemplary. Our favorite server Kelly’s attention to detail and wonderful attitude of service always makes the experience that much better. This place is a gem and I continue to spread the word to friends and family.
Thank you for providing a lovely reunion among good friends. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding.
this was our first time at Elizabeth's and we will definitely be back! the food was amazing! from the bread served with a whole roasted garlic and EVOO, to the dinner and cocktails. I had the seafood risotto and my husband had the chicken marsala. both amazing! the service was excellent. very attentive. we went on a Sunday night and it was nice and quiet and we had a little table in the corner. definitely recommend
This place is a hidden gem! Food and service were excellent!
They were very busy and probably could have used more wait staff for a holiday weekend. It took time to get water glasses re-filled etc. But the food was phenomenal.
Everything was fantastic. Service. Prices. Food. Ambiance. We will definitely be returning.
Once again, food and service was wonderful. Our server, Justin was great, as usual.
Everyone is friendly, professional, warm and inviting. Service is impeccable, food is always good
Excellent seafood risotto and caprese salad; undistinguished (but not bad) Caesar salad; lemon martini too sweet, cheese cake very good, coffee ditto. Excellent service (thanks to Michelle). Complimentary pink champagne for our anniversary a pleasing gesture (though terrible champagne, I'm afraid). Plan to return.
