A nice evening out on the patio, salad through dessert was good as usual and of course the owner was there checking on each table as we have grown accustomed. Thanks Wayne
Just ok. Fish special was pretty tasteless. Past dish was very good. Service was excellent, but hard to pay the prices for food that’s not great.
Great dinner with family! Good food. I had the risotto and it was fabulous
Our waiter was great and the food was delicious especially the bruschetta!
We had a nice mellow dinner on the patio. Server was outstanding and music was low and very pleasant. Thank you for a great evening.
One of my favorite restaurants in Lexington
Wonderful salmon, tender, lightly crispy. The Tuscan bean soup was delicious
Extra value when a couple in our party chose their summer 3for$33 Summer Special
Great place, great dinner. Bourbon manhattans were outstanding.
We had a wonderful dinner with a dear old friend. We were hoping for ossa bouco, but it was not on the current menu. The food we did order was great.
The veal meatballs dish was delicious and, with a salad and tiramisu, made a perfect meal. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio and our server was excellent. Would definitely go back!
Great as usual
Great meal, great hospitality! It was an outstanding meal.
Had an excellent experience at Portofino. Our server, Bry, answered any questions we had and helped with recommendations when asked. Good food and a good experience.
It's great to have a restaurant like this in Lexington. We come often and even when we stop in just "to grab a bite", within a few minutes of being seated, we are reminded that we are about "to dine" by the ambience, the precision of the staff, the level of cuisine, the wine list; you can't ask more of a restaurateur. As always thanks for yet another delightful evening.
Always love this place. We enjoyed cocktails before ordering appetizers, salads, and entree. The waitress sat the first two courses on the table simultaneously. We had not finished our appetizers when the entree arrived (much less enjoyed our salads. We ended up leaving our salads untouched in order to have our main courses while they were hot. It definitely ruined the tone of the evening.
We enjoyed the patio dining experience and we could take our time because the service was excellent! Not rushed and the food was delicious!
Portofino is always outstanding. Jay provided excellent service and the entire meal was delicious.
Beautiful location and service. But for an upscale and somewhat expensive restaurant, the food itself was pretty mediocre. Three people in our party of four ordered pasta dishes. Two of those dishes, the ravioli and the lasagna, seemed to be reheated and the pasta was extremely rubbery. The lasagna was so dry that it was not edible. The restaurant did not charge us for it, which was the right thing to do. Overall, the quality of the food was not commensurate with the price.
Great food and great service. New menu items were wonderful
The food and ambiance were great but the service was sketchy at best . We got our drinks and the waiter did not come back until we flagged him down. The promised bread never appeared. Salads came before our appetizers. It was really a disappointment.
Dined here during a road trip from the southeast back home to Chicago. Nice menu though I felt a little pricey for Lexington, KY. Food was very good. Bartender a little cranky - didn't seem like she wanted to be there. Will visit again.
The food was excellent. However the server was not so great. She lacked speed and motivation. The majority of her time was spent on a much larger table and not our small party of two. We were constantly waiting for water and for our orders to be taken.
Service and food was the best, took care of our gluten free needs.
great wine selection, fresh food, good service, some of the best italian in eh city
Disappointed with service and food portions. Wasn't crowded less then 10 tables occupied, but service was slow and at times not responsive. Food portion were small for an Italian restaurant, bread was good.
Portofino is our favorite special occasion restaurant, so we went for my husband's birthday and weren't disappointed. The patio is lovely, the service is great, and the food is reliably delicious. And they make the best martini in town. After a visit or two, they recognize you and welcome you. A wonderful restaurant.
Every time we dine here it is a pleasure. Lexington is lucky to have a place like this
Wonderful dinner. Disappointed that a desired menu item (Lobster ravioli) was not available, but the Grouper Special and Veal meatballs were exceptionally good. Nice service.
Excellent food and service! Lobster ravioli was great!
We always love coming here. Probably the best patio in Lexington. The food, wine and service are always top notch. We will continue to make this a part of our regular locations to dine at.
Our favorite restaurant in Lexington. Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere. A special place!
Loved the food ! Service was great too! Perfect for date night.
Great!! Always the best.
Food and service were top notch.
The atmosphere was wonderful. The food was great. The server was a bit slow. She tended to the larger crowd and so we had to wait for refills of drinks.
Great ambiance and a spectacular bourbon list. The appetizer we ordered was great but the sea scallops dish was pretty underwhelming for the price. The scallops were tiny and rubbery. Next time, sticking with pasta.
Great service and food!
Great birthday celebration dinner! Thanks for the dessert! Food, service and atmosphere were exceptional.
