    Everything was great, except the employee at the door sent us to a table that had nothing to do with us. Secondly, the chicken masala was massively salty. My Husband loved his salmon. All in all, good experience.

    We were greeted by our server, Emma Joy and also by the manager, Kerry. They both took very good care of us. Our food was served ina very appeling manner ands excellent in test and temperature. The seafood gumbo was outstanding. My wife and I enjpyed a shared Chicken Ciabattal sandwich while our friends enjoyed the Jags salad and Chicken Marsala. It was a very nice and relaxong evening meal.

    My veal parmigiana was wonderful. My friend ordered the lasagna. She raved about how good it was. It looked delicious. It was very quiet with just a few tables taken, but it was wonderful to be able to catch up with a friend without having to yell. The chocolate pots de creme was out of this world.

    The Restaurant Week selections were good. We had the barbecued shrimp, the tomato and basil dish, the shrimp and squash soup, the seafood pasta and the shrimp deavlo. All were very good. The barbecued shrimp and shrimp deavlo were excellent. Our server Benjamin Almond was fantastic — attentive and professional. We recommend Portobello’s for a special evening or any time!

    I don't believe the restaurant was prepared for the influx due to the holiday. Also, seemed to be short staffed. Service was excessively slower, with over an hour wait time for food after ordering. We also had an additional wait time to be seated, 15 minutes after our reservation time. Management did visit the table to keep communication. This is key and was much appreciated. Total experience time was just over 3 hours, with most of that time waiting. Good thing we enjoy each other's company, lol. The food when eventually delivered was cold (steak specials, specifically)but still delicious. Would still recommend this place for the food alone, just be prepared to have lunch AND dinner there.

    I visited Portobello's for Father's Day brunch and ordered the chicken & waffles. We arrived @2:15 reservations & ordered @12:20--12:30 & food @12:55. My waffle was burned but friend traded his waffle cooked properly. The waitress was nice but they were either overbooked OR there were lots of people without reservations. I would still try them again on a Sunday that wasn't a holiday for a thorough review. The prices were good; I would definitely try them again @ time less busy.

    Waitstaff was very attentive. I love their veal parmigiana. I found it dry last night. It needed some marinara sauce to top it off. The Sensation salad is perfect. Our salad plates were clean. It's an enjoyable place to dine. I will definitely return.

    Second time booking reservations here. Only came back because it was great the first time. This time however was not as great of an experience. Issues with food, front staff seemed bitter, feeling rushed ourselves because of the waiter, when we were trying to take our time. Music was loud and didn’t fit the vibe of the restaurant. Just overall disappointed.

    Wait staff and management were very nice and attentive, but the food simply did not deliver for an excellent Sunday brunch. My son and grandchild enjoyed the chicken and waffle and my daughter the hamburger. My frittata was mediocrce with boring potatoes. Have enjoyed many lunches there but will opt for Sunday brunch elsewhere.

    Walking in was kindly greeted and wished a Happy Mother’s Day… the carpet had food all over it-looked dirty and unclean. Waitress took our drink order. Waited quite some time for a beer and mimosa. We were brought complimentary bread thank god as we ordered our food and waited for an hour for it. Our waitress by far was the most unfriendly waitress I have ever encountered. Never smiled,never!! Not once did she ever come to our table and ask if we needed anything. Not once. She literally put the appetizer on the table and jetted, didn’t look to see if we needed refills nor did she ask. This happened again when she brought the entrees out. One of my boys got his plate, she had the incorrect plate for my other son. No plates for me or my husband. Came back with my sons correct plate again on each of these times not saying a word to us as in yours will right out or sorry for the wait-nothing!!! My husband’s plate came and was ice cold we sent it back. Next the manager came to our table with a complimentary cup of gumbo with a burnt roux-it was awful. He then brought out a new plate for my husband and asked me if I was waiting on something…YES my food he asked what I ordered another 30 mins passed before he returned with my food which my boys were finished eating!! In the meantime my husband realized his wasn’t chicken as he ordered it was veal. I requested the manager box my food and not what husband ordered we were leaving. The manager did cover our check, which I expected after this catastrophe of a Mother’s Day lunch. When I got home I went to eat my food, not a lick of sauce on the pasta. I used to eat here all the time and the food an service were really good. No more! And no it wasn’t because it was Mother’s Day it wasn’t that busy!!! This was the worst dining experience I have ever encountered!!!
