Great Italian food, excellent service, and intimate setting.
Interesting menu with great options, warm friendly service. Each night there is a well-priced list of specials. We had two pasta dishes. Each was plentiful and tasty, although without that extra punch that would make them great. But can't beat the price and quantity. Great location just by the theaters, with inside and outside seating, and they're open all afternoon. I will definitely return to try other offerings.
The food is just barely mediocre. The salad with candied walnuts was overly sweet (the dressing has sugar, and the nuts are way over-sugared). I had the chicken piccata for my entree. Chicken was overcooked and didn't have nearly enough lemon flavor. Sauteed veggies were fresh but unimaginative.
Seated immediately, excellent food and service
Food is good service not so much. Never got a refill the whole time we where there. They sat us and never gave us menus lol
Our waiter was new, not familiar with the menu yet. There was a dish mix up, he did everything he could to rectify it, apologized and took the item off the bill.
Great meeting place
Great food , Great place. The food was was very filling nice atmosphere
Great place for Lunch or Dinner before or after going to the nearby Century 20 Theater or the Fox Therater in Redwood City.
Took our friends who were visiting from LA. The service started out great and went downhill from there. We asked for second helping of drinks and bread. It never came until we inquire what happened. However, the food was great. Excellent calamari. Must have the linguine and clams. It was so good! Nice flavoring and plenty of clams. It took the waiter forever to return with our bill. Was told the system was down. We also were able to use their 20% coupon.
Service was very good, prompt, thoughtful. Spaghetti & meatballs was really tasty but the skirt steak was bland, risotto was sad and disappointing, linguini with clam sauce was okay.
Portobello Grill has become VERY popular since my last glowing review a year ago. As a result, the noise level has become almost unbearable on our Saturday evening.
Great for lunch. Nice range of options. Good table arrangements for private conversations. Excellent service.
The people who work there are amazing! They’re always very welcoming and make our dining experience amazing. It’s a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday or even just to have a regular dinner😊
All in all pretty good. Nothing remarkable. Excellent risotto.
Very nice meal, great location, good service.
Had a great time. My family came from out of town very nice good food . Nice atmosphere . Just love it
We had Porto Bella mushrooms, ravioli and mahi-mahi, all perfectly prepared and scrumptious
Very good experience and good food
The food was great. We have been there many times because it is convenient after the show and we have never been impressed until this time. We don’t know if they have a new 👨🍳 but we will definitely be back.
Great food and service, first time here and loved it.
Staff was top-notch and super accommodating to my large group. Will come back.
As always, I enjoyed Portobello Grill. Went with a friend for her birthday and sat outside on a relatively chilly day. But, we were warm sitting next to a heater. We both ordered and very much enjoyed our Kobe burgers. Waitstaff was very attentive, friendly and helpfull. They noted that it was my friend’s birthday (she opened a wrapped gift) and brought a very tasty chocolate, candlelit dessert, on the house!
Great meal with friends. Clean plates all around.Two enjoyed pasta dishes. One Salmon - lovely and one Chicken. Yum... Never a compliant. Could be noisy depending on groups, etc. but generally moderate. Outdoor dining in good weather is a plus.
We enjoyed the food, service and very convenient location for the downtown activities. Not hard to park, at least on the weekend.
We'll be back next time we're in the area.
I was impressed by the location, service and menu. Will return
Always a great experience. Food never disappoints. Great meal before going to show at the Fox Theatre. Sponsor for Fox Theatre and gives discount on meals for ticket holders.
We especially enjoyed the fried string bean appetizer - perfectly seasoned. My mushroom raviloi was good but maybe a little heavy on the sauce. Adding some additional pasta dishes would make their menu better.
While our meals were not horrible they just didn't have flavor. The chicken piccata was not coated in anything and seemed to have been steamed because when you cut the chicken it water ran out. The Caesar salad dressing had no flavor at all. I hate finding the butt of the salad head in your dish. I had two in my plate! They were brown and taste horrible. I'm surprised they didn't notice that.
We eat outside and the people watching is not relaxing. Lots of kids running around yelling at each other. Just not a great experience.
Portabella appetizer was really good; pear salad was excellent; and cioppino was also very good-lots of fresh seafood. The drinks at the bar were good, and anchor steam on tap!
Very nice part of town-nice to take a stroll after dinner
Their daily special is a great value. Friendly and attentive service. Food is always good here.
Great restaurant for a pre-show dinner. Parking was convenient and within walking distance to Dragon Theater. We had a party of 9 and our meal was served in a timely manner that we were able to get to the theater without feeling rushed.
Nice server, big salad and main dish cooked nicely.
Petrale sole with veggies was cooked to perfection! Friendly and attentive wait staff, lovely ambience, with outdoor seating available. Indoor was a little quieter, but we had a window seat so we could enjoy both the peaceful and elegant indoor setting while having some sunlight and people-watching opportunities as well.
Food was delicious!! Our waiter was not great. Would definitely come back because the food was good.
Great and consistent food, nice specials and attentive service makes PG a favorite. The Ahi tuna tartare and the salad with dried cherries are hard to turn down.
We dinned on a show night. Due to excellent outside seating, the inside was not filled and the noise level was low. Service was right on and the food well worth another visit.
Good service, food fine, price good. Our 6th Visit and will be a 7th in a couple of months.
We enjoy your grill when we go to the Fox theater. The food is good and the prices are competitive. The noise level is quite high, a problem, as my hubby and I are hard of hearing, even though we wear hearing aids. Then again, we have the same problem at all the restaurants. It's nice that you give a discount too (with a coupon).
Enjoy the Happy Hour and Menu! Great dining inside or out.
