Cobb Salad was delish! Chris, server, was great! Nice atmosphere!

Really disappointed of this restaurant. This is my 3rd negative review in more than 10 years using opentable. The rib rolls were greasy, the mushroom soup was cold and the pork chop overcook and cold as well. Very bad experience, do not recommend it at all

Great place to go for lunch because it was not busy! They said they are busy in the morning and evening since the restaurant is in a hotel.

This was a weird dining experience. We arrived a little early for a 7pm reservation this past Saturday. The restaurant was completely empty and quiet . We couldn't find anyone in the restaurant, diners or staff. Went to the front desk to ask since we weren't sure if it was even open, although I did get an email the day before confirming our reservation. By then the host appeared and seated us. From then on, the service was good, the presentation of the food was beautiful and the quality of the food good. Towards the middle of our meal, we noticed a few people coming by and peeking in and then walking away because they didn't see anyone to greet or seat them. The host/hostess station is not visible from the outside so you can't see anyone as you come in from the entrance. I think if there was a host/hostess station it would help. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'd recommend this restaurant because of this.

We did not know about this restaurant until we saw it featured for Dunwoody Restaurant Week, so we gave it a try. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. The meal was outstanding. Started with the jumbo shrimp appetizer which we probably would not have paid the money for, but it was very reasonable due to the special. This was followed by a wonderful vegetable tortellini with a pea puree. Gorgeous. I had the Scottish Salmon which was good, not particularly notable, and my husband had the steak which was as good as any we have ever had . You could cut with butter knife. Served over a wonderful hash. Wish I had gotten that! Ended with the creme brulee which was delicious. My husband had the cheesecake, also delicious, but rather small. The wine was a satisfactory pour, not skimpy, but not inexpensive. Overall, reasonable. I think they are priced a bit high. Ambiance is not great. Service was very good.

Particularly the chicken and the kale salad. Have used LeMeridian/Portico three times now for business functions; from catering a mock trial in the hotel; to a private marketing lunch for physicians; to a business luncheon with the PCID and hospital executive to discuss the impact of a new GDOT project, and the food has been excellent every time and the staff are very responsive.

I must admit, I tried to book for Valentine's lunch at the last minute to different venues to no avail. That being said i was surprised that we were 1 of only 2 tables book for lunch. The service was mediocre at best (The waiter tried his best but you could see that he was just not proficient). The food was really high price for the quality delivered. To quote the great Dave Ramsey, it was bland. For the $85.00 we spent for 1 appetizer and 2 entrees, I was expecting a higher level of cuisine. I would not be giving this restaurant a second chance in the future and would not recommend it either.

A $100 for 2 people and only 1 glass of wine between us. The food was ok but oversalted. I would have rather gone somewhere else. I had salmon and my husband had the pork. It was quiet because we were the only 2 people on the restaurant on a Saturday night. That should have clued me in but we were already there and hungry. The service was very good and servers were very nice but, then again, we were the only ones there. It would have been a cool place with a few more people.

While staying at LeMeridian, we thought enjoying a highly rated restaurant in the hotel would be the trick. We were one of three tables at 8:00 on a Friday night. It took forever to get drinks, food, and the bill. The food was good but we were almost too irritated to enjoy it. There was only one waiter (which should have been enough for three tables) but he kept disappearing without checking on all tables.

Had the lamb shanks for main. Was served on a huge pile of linguine. Told a bemused waitress there was enough food on my plate for 3 people. what a waste!

I used Open Table to make a reservation for a lunch biz meeting. We arrived at the restaurant and come to find out it was closed for a private event. Why they were taking reservations - who knows. At any rate, we used a table in the hotel lobby. Service was quite slow, especially for lunch. The food, however, was excellent. I recommend the short rib ravioli and the chicken breast. I scored Portico lower b/c of issues sited above. Finally, the hotel needs to do something about the parking situation. Very confusing.

Hosted a small group for lunch...awesome meal and great service. Chris, our service was pleasant and made great suggestions. Looks like it would be a great spot for dinner, especially with the beautifull patio for drinks before dinner.

Should have known that a last minute reservation for mothers day brunch might not be a great choice- first- they were understaffed and overwhelmed. 2nd- had us sitting in the lobby of the hotel at a conference table complete with phone charging stations. 3rd- no brunch- just a regular lunch menu. 4th- it took 3 people and 4 tries to bring waters and one mimosa. 5th- oh just figure it out. It was laughable how bad it was.

I made reservations for Morher's Day, Sunday May 10, 4 days in advance. The reviews on Trip Advisor described how lovely the restaurant was---like a sun room looking out on a gorgeous landscaped patio. Not what we got. When we arrived for our lunch ( 6 of us ) we were told a bar mitzvah was using the entire restaurant and that we would be seated in a private room. This room had no windows and resembled a corporate meeting room. The lunch was at least an hour in coming because of the party going on. So disappointed in this experience! It still cost us as much to sit in a dark room on a beautiful Spring day for the food ordered. The food was okay when it finally came. Took a chance on booking this restaurant and very disappointed in how we were treated.

Nice decor, especially if you choose to eat outside by the fireplace at night. Wasn't busy on a late Friday night, 9:30pm. Downside they may run out of things. Like in the case of my pomegranate salad that didn't have the pomegranate or the orange dressing for it. But they still made it tastey. Best lentils I've had in a restaurant. Nice and spicy. The Ribeye was cooked right but I guess I'm not into those as much. Wife had Pork chop and said it was great. Server took great care of us. Chef even gave us a complimentary cheese plate for our special occasion. So always put that in the comments for your opentable reservations. Over we had a nice time. Oh, can't forget the great sangria.

The food was ok. Not great but ok. They were very generous with a complimentary glass of champagne and chocolates but the menu was very limited and the food was a bit overseasoned. The waiter was amazing.

Scheduled valentine's dinner here with my wife. I chose this restaurant primarily because we were staying the weekend at the Le Meridian, which by the way is wonderful. Three days before our arrival we were contacted by email asking to verify we were still coming for dinner. I called and confirmed and was asked if I could move my reservation time. I was told they over booked the time slot we chose. We were flexible so I said yes. However the restaurant was near deserted, four tables seated, during our original time. The service was poor. We had to tell the wait staff the order to serve our food. Meaning, appetizer before main course. The staff, while eager, were woefully underprepared for their duties. Bottom line, there are lots of great dinner choices within walking distance of the Le Meridian- Perimeter and Portico is the restaurant you pass by on your way to them.

Portico is an undiscovered dining venue, very attentive servers and lovely cuisine with a French exevutive chef who wants to share his vision of fine dining with Alanta!

This place is beautiful on the inside w/ a fabulous patio. The appetizers we ordered were good, but there was no music and we were 3 of six people, so we decided to leave and go to dinner elsewhere.
We nicknamed the place crickets.
The space is so nice, it's sad they don't try to amp up the atmosphere a bit or do something to draw business.
Would make a great rehearsal dinner spot!
