Portland opened in 2015 and received a Michelin star the same year - which we have retained to this day. We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our executive chef Stuart Andrew and head chef Chris Bassett and his team.

We offer a la carte and also a Tasting Menu at lunch and dinner.

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our main wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists. Our Single Bottle List contains around 100 bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers.

Apart from the main restaurant, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing for special family events or business meetings.

                                                          Some of the best service in London. Excellent food, really top quality menu. Lovely atmosphere and decor. One of the best restaurants I've been to in London for a long time.

                                                          Absolutely fantastic dining experience! We dined on a Saturday afternoon and had the 3 course, £45 table d'hôte menu. The food was stunning and worthy of their Michelin star. Added to that, the knowledgable and professional staff and the excellent wine list, this restaurant is a real find.

                                                          The new menu is great . Who would have thought that a little rhubarb was all that was needed to make an outstanding turbot dish ? The crab and lardo starter is absolutely delicious . The little tart with confit chicken leg and morels should be much bigger , it’s so amazing . I’m not sure how they maintain their consistency but I’m so pleased they do !

Appreciated particularly one of staff who recommended me a revised(or reduced # of glasses) wine pairing for tasting menus. was well matched and value for money for me who was a single visitor!

                                                          We had an absolutely outstanding meal at the Portland Restaurant for my mums birthday. I genuinely couldn’t recommend it enough! The experience was enhanced by added little touches for example when we turned up the staff had personally written a birthday card for my Mum and we were served a veloute when we first arrived. The atmosphere was fantastic and not snooty at all! Genuinely an amazing lunch!

                                                          The menu was varied, seasonal and delicious; the wine list was very well curated - some really interesting and rarer wines. The presentation and taste of the food was outstanding - each dish was a wonderful mix of flavours and textures. The service was highly professional and attentive without being intrusive. There was a lively atmosphere - which we enjoyed.

                                                          We had raviolo, red mullet, chicken, lamb, rhubarb and cheese, and it was absolutely flawless. Excellent wine, excellent friendly service. Even the bread was superb. We've eaten in restaurants owned by Marcus Waring, Michel Roux, Angela Hartnett and Raymond Blanc, and Portland waas up there with the best of them. We will definitely be back.

                                                          Wonderful lunch. Food was stunningly good, beautifully presented and delicious. The wild garlic raviolo was one of the tastiest things I’ve eaten this year. I’ve been here a number of times but my pal was a first timer. He said he’ll be back! Goes without saying that the wines were interesting and fairly priced. The recommended Sicilian passito to go with the ginger Parkin was a perfect match. Staff as always so friendly and knowledgeable. This is a really excellent restaurant.

                                                          This is a wonderful restaurant - the food is staggeringly good - some wonderful flavour combinations, richness, and presentation. The portion sizes are not huge but actually perfectly satisfying - we both felt fully replete by the end of the meal. Service was first class - all the waiting staff seemed to have a comprehensive knowledge of the menu and of the wine list, and were able to offer very helpful guidance as we talked through the menu. I loved this place and will be making a bee-line for it again as soon as opportunity allows.

                                                          Booked for a birthday dinner and could not have been happier. Restaurant offered the private dining room, a perfect oasis downstairs. We’re looked after so well by our Antipodean waitress. Tasting menu was superb. Excellent wine list (the Spatburgander was spectacular) Even gave a birthday card and present of truffled honey. Thanks so much for such a special night. Memorable

                                                          A recommendation from a friend led to a really nice lunch for my wife and I. Innovative menu of small plates, great taste, good service and nice wines. Service felt a little rushed, but not in any way unfriendly.

                                                          By far my favorite restaurant in London. I have never, ever ever had a disappointing order. Literally everything is incredible. Staff is beyond kind and thoughtful. Ambiance is lovely & not pretentious (even though Portland easily deserves to be given the quality!). Wine list A+. Go for all occasions - work dinner, date, family in town, celebration with friends. I’m going 2x this week and I could never be tired of Portland.

                                                          A birthday lunch with friends. It was wonderful from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Tom our fantastic waiter. The restaurant had a great buzzy, lunchtime feel about it. Tom was great throughout the meal and the restaurant acknowledged my birthday in a great way with a card, candle and a pot of truffle infused honey, very much appreciated and original. The food was outstanding in every respect and we shall be returning.
