We are a classic Grill with Italian influence placing emphasis on high quality food, exceptional service, and great value. We are positioned between the heavily populated casual concepts and the fine dining white tablecloth concepts. Our "polished casual" concept provides our guest with great value for the high quality food and exceptional service they receive.



Our menu features a diverse selection of outstanding in-house prepared products. We are well known for our fire-grilled steaks, chops, chicken, and a selection of fresh grilled fish. Entree salads, made from scratch soups, burgers, sandwiches, and pasta round out our selection. We also have a wide selection of wine, cocktails, and beer. Don't forget about the happy hour! EVERYDAY from 2pm-6pm! It's always a good time at Portobello's.

Went here after graduation with family and friends. Would highly recommend. Service was great, atmosphere was relaxing (not crazy) and food was very good. On a side note...They will charge you if you bring your own cake and they serve it and use their plates. I think it’s $1/pp. we brought our own paper plates, forks and served it ourselves. Other than that good experience and will return

One of our favorite restaurants, we do a lot of special occasions like birthdays there. Mother’s Day was a little more crazy than the norm and it showed across the board. But still very good—just not great this time.

Upon arrival told the wait staff we had never been here before. They said they would give us the best available table. The table was not that special. It took ten minutes to get a waiter. We made a drink order and it took twenty five minutes to receive the drinks. We were told it was because there was an engagement party and the bartender was working it. ??? We ordered our meal and it took another twenty five minutes. We asked for to go boxes and it took ten minutes to get them. If you schedule a party, be prepared with appropriate staffing.

My husband and I rarely get out for date night. He suggested we try this place. It has a great atmosphere outside, the lighting and building are beautiful! We sat inside, however. There was a rather large party of people going on nearby but it wasn't too much of a distraction as we were sort of looking for a more upbeat place - we also had a great bottle of wine to enjoy so anything else was not bothering to us. Our server was Gabby. She was very friendly, she was very attentive and we hardly had to wait for her service despite her having a large party also. She had great energy and made it a nice experience. She was patient and had suggestions when we asked for them. Overall it was a really great experience, my leftover Eggplant Stack was delicious and I enjoyed the leftovers the next day. I was also left thinking about the meal a few days later. I will definitely be back!

I was mislead when I inquired about a certain dish once I received the dish it wasn't topped with crab meat like I thought it would be. People that came after us received there meal first. Waitress wasn't familiar with menu

The atmosphere was great, we were able to sit outside. Our steaks were charred with a request of medium well. The spinach was not sautéed, more like stored around on the grill really quick. The crawfish bread and wine were Excellent!!! Over all it was a nice experience.

The service was not only slow we were brought drinks that we did not order due to they did not have brand of whiskey that we ordered. They did not even tell us they were out of the particular liquor that we order with our diet coke so the bar just fixed a diet coke with no alcohol. When we questioned this to the server she stated "oh they are out so the bar just fixed you a diet coke." We were not even asked if we would like a different brand of whiskey to add to the diet coke. The food was very bland and there was not even a piece of bread served with the lasagna that was ordered. When we received the check we were charged double for the alcoholic drinks. When we questioned the server she just said that is how they ring up the drinks. We were so ready to leave this disastrous dinner we did not want to wait any longer to speak to the manager. This was the first and probably the last time that we will go to Portobello's Grill.

This was my child’s birthday dinner. We had a wonderful meal and although the waiter was a little slow I think there were a couple other large parties which caused a little bit of backup. Overall this is definitely a place I would recommend and will be returning to.

Food and service were fine, problem was we were seated near the back room in a kid's birthday party was going on. It was very loud. On top of that, the saloon doors occasionally make a sound like a bomb going off.

went for a birthday dinner and it was great. the food could of been better said they were understaffed but they were not busy at all for the coldness and taste of food. The service however was great and the manager was really nice about our experience. i will go back again and try them out with a lot less people with that saying we were a big group at the time. I cant wait to go again and try some of the great menu items i didnt get a chance to try, so many good options.

Went with a party of 8 for my daughter’s birthday, including her 2-year old. They put us in a private dining room, which was great because it allowed the little one to move around without disturbing anyone. Food and service were excellent.

The wait staff was a little slow at first. Time lapse between being seated and ordering drinks was longer than usual. The same between bringing drinks and taking orders. After that the waiter was very attentive. He may have had extra table to wait on - the restaurant was pretty full. Everyone enjoyed the food!

This used to be a great restaurant, but my experience last week was anything but great. Spilled drinks, passive aggressivity between the wait staff/management/bar tender, messed up orders, over cooked order, and very slow service. It took 15-20 minutes to get a bottle of beer (each time, 3 beers... Consistently slow). And it wasn't like just our waiter was the problem - hostess, expo, bar, waiter, cook all screwed up something. And there were only 4 or 5 tables taken.

The menu, location and atmosphere are great, but there's something significantly wrong in the way this restaurant is being run.

Worst service at a restaurant in many years. Millennials at their finest. Horrible service, lack of class and awareness of customer service. Humor not appreciated...
Will not return to this restaurant, and will not recommend this location to others.
Poor dining experience.

Our Bible Study group met for lunch. We wanted a restaurant with good food and a relaxed atmosphere. We decided on Portobello's (Jefferson @ Old Hammond) at 1 p.m. so we wouldn't be rushed. Excellent food, excellent service, very fair prices. At no time did we feel pressured to either order or to leave!

We always enjoy our meal when we dine here. We average once a week when we are in town. They are very accommodating to us since my husband is vegan. They created a special pasta dish just for him. The manager Gabby always stops by our table when she is there. The staff has always been nice and professional. I do not have anything bad to say about this restaurant. Their carrot cake is the best!

Service was poor. Not enough servers for the number of tables.

Food served inconsistently. Some salads, then others. Sides before entrees. Some entrees missing and came after others had finished eating.
No way to run a restaurant.
I still like it, though, and would return.
