Virginia Brook Trout
fresh virginia trout fillets rolled in french mustard and herbed bread crumbs sautéed in olive oil and served over jasmine white rice with a lime berre blanc
Braised Pork Belly
apples and caramelized onions, topped with maple syrup bourbon glaze
This is a charming place with wonderful service and delicious food. We had the pasta with clams and shrimp, salmon with dill cream sauce over pasta, the pork belly appetizer, buratta, and 2 delicious desserts. Nice jazz combo playing on a Sunday. Parking garage right next door. Stop by.
Enjoyed our food, service and the restaurant. They are a bit unfriendly in accommodating their promotions, which I’ve noticed for a long time.
I was very disappointed in my experience here. We had the charcuterie, which was mediocre. I had the trout, which was mealy and bland. Service was slow. I would not return.
This is my first visit to LaPorta's since the COVID lockdown began in March 2020. Before that, and last night, I attended whenever my daughter and her supporting musicians were the entertainers, and expect to do so in the future. I enjoy the food and ambience, but have no other reason for eating out.
The food was incredible!
We went back after a very long (18 month) absence and were not disappointed my date had a very nice broiled haddock and I had the rockfish, both with some of the best grilled asparagus I have ever had. Naturally, with the Chateau Vieux Chateau Palon Montagne St. Emilion, 2017 to wash it down with. Thank you great to have a nice change.
Amazing food, exceptional service, and great music from the Satin Dolls....
Great food, prices and service staff. Delightful food and nightly music.
Food and service were excellent, as was the sangria special. Only drawback was the music. The musicians were talented, but we did not care for the jazz styling.
The best jazz and cuisine. Atmosphere is perfect! Food is delicious! Couldn't ask for a better dining/music experience. Very clean and well spaced... we felt completely safe and can't wait to come back!!!
Amazing food and live jazz. Will be sure to be a regular go to since they have live jazz 7 days a week!
Terrible experience. Made reservations for outside dining, and was seated at a table in n the corner away from every other diner. Received water and menus and although the waiter saw us and made eye contact, no one ever came back to the table. We waited for 25 minutes and decided to leave. When we told the hostess we were leaving and why she just stared at us like a deer in headlights. Perhaps the food is good but I guess we will never know.
The service, food, and entertainment was off the chart excellent. The only suggestion i would make is the restaurant itself is overdue for a makeover. Other than that I would highly recommend.
A great place to get a wide selection of food and drinks. Everything we had was delicious.
I haven't been here in about five years. But the food was good and my favorite dessert was delicious.
Had dinner during a live performance. Very good experience not too loud, but the music came across clearly. Food was good, staff was very friendly
My wife and I have been regular customers at LaPorta for many years. It's a wonderful neighborhood restaurant, with good food, great service, live low key entertainment, and friendly owners.
We have been to Laportas several times and it was always our favorite, however this time we found it overpriced, underserved and somewhat confusing re the cost of wine due to having two menus with a wine incentive. We also ordered the halibut and were served a portion that even embarrassed us it was so tiny (could have fit in the palm of a small hand) for $33 which is the reason that we won't be back. Flavors are great, portions other than pasta are just not worth the cost. We understand that restaurants have gone through a bad time but can't justify paying $400 for 3 under portioned meals and 2 bottles of wine that we thought were going to be around $20 each. Anyway, a shame, hopefully they will understand that overcharging customers to get their profits back up may be a successful strategy in the short run but doesn't engender return business or loyalty.
Great food and wonderful service.
Food was bland, visually not exceptional. No attempt was made to inquire why most of the food on my plate wasn’t eaten.
Prices on Yelp were lower than actual prices. Server graciously offered to ensure lunch prices which were higher on items ordered.
Staff was nice. Ambience was dated.
Expectations Not Met.
I was welcomed and seated promptly, the server did not provide his name but an overall decent server knowledge about the menu. The first cocktail had grey goose pear it in, it was on their menu, and it was not diluted enough (shaken). Then I order a regular old fashioned / to much middle cherries, and simple syrup. Not enough bourbon or bitters. Out of all the old fashioneds I ordered this has to have been the worst. Then for my entree, their was a piece of a metal scrub brush in my linguine, the server confirmed what it was. I did see a manager present, and he did not come over to speak. Not sure if he was knowledgeable on what was happening at my table and the non-satisfaction I had.
Lastly, dessert came out their “award winning carrot cake”it came with buttercream frosting rather than cream cheese frosting. The butter cream frosting lacked confectionary’s sugar. The cake was also dense and slightly dry.
I am looking for a manager to reach out to me.
Seafood was perfectly cooked and all our dishes were tasty... super happy
Had a lovely dinner. Outdoor seating is shaded and pretty. Enjoyed very much!
Everything was delicious! Outstanding service - attentive but not annoying. We will be back.
Nice sound system outdoor patio.
Absolutely wonderful experience! Go for the live music and stellar food. Stay for the relaxed sense of community. Definitely order dessert.
The food was delicious! I had the salmon with mango salsa and it was moist and flavorful. My husband had the cheese ravioli and the homemade mushrooms sauce 😋
Options for everyone!
Excellent service and the food was great. Lots of good live music too.
Our first time. We’ll definitely be back. It’s a unique experience.
First time there went to hear the jazz, but was seated in the bar area. We could hear it but would have liked to have been in the same room. Food was wonderful!
We were seated outside across the public drive to the parking garage, which is fine but when you are paying $35 and $39 for two entrees plus an appetizer, salad/soup and a dessert, they needed additional servers to ensure we weren’t left hanging on the sidewalk across from the restaurant waving ppl down for another glass of wine. After all, we weren’t grabbing a couple of beers and a bowl of mussels where you expect a more casual level of service. The food was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous and we enjoyed talking to our server when he was able to take a minute to chat. The live music was great since it was piped outdoors. We will give them a try again soon! Thx!
Great Mother’s Day
We have heard good things about La Porta's but sadly did not experience it ourselves. Not all items were available on the menu (saw workers carrying bags of Wholefoods groceries next door in the restaurant several times). The mussels were rancid and not washed as there was sand/grit in them and the seafood salad contained a boiled fish with no seasoning on it and it tasted frozen. We also waited a very long time for our food, but our server was very nice and helpful. Their homemade Coconut cake was excellent - the best thing we had. We thought the quality of the food did not match the very high pricetag. We probably won't be returning because of the poor quality and high price.
This was our first time dining at Laporta's and we were really impressed. We went there for Mother's Day brunch. They accommodated our request to sit outside for COVID safety and they have ample seating and spacing to make you feel very comfortable. Our server was excellent, very attentive to our every need. We had the Mother's Day pre-fix menu and we all enjoyed our selections. The food was excellent quality. The desserts were huge. Great restaurant, we will be back.
We enjoyed a sumptuous Mother's Day brunch in a beautiful socially-distanced atmosphere with excellent service from a welcoming attentive staff. Can't wait to go back soon! Thanks!
Great Mother's Day brunch – excellent food, services, and live, soft piano music
Quality eats and strong atmosphere. Menu could use a little more diversity
Wonderful food and service. Will definitely return! Only downside last night was it was quite warm as they were having issues with the AC.
The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. This was our first time dining at Laporta's. We will definitely go back again. Everything was perfect.
