The staff and the food was excellent. Wonderful to sit looking out over the lake in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Loved the duck wings and our burgers. Was great they could sit us as we booked a table thru OpenTable but the hostess didn't have our reservation. They said they do not work with your site anymore. I suggest people call the venue directly to book a table. No doubt it will be super busy over the holidays.
Good ambience. Went there for Brunch. Good food. Partners meal was bland, but the omlet was a big portion and has good flavour.
First time at this restaurant will definitely go back
The Sunday roast beef was great but the potato/veg accompaniment was ho hum.... I actually asked for salt to attempt to give it some flavour!
Waiter was very accommodating with some dietary requests.
With very few people in the restaurant why sit 6 tables right next to each other ? Why not spread them out albeit in the same area ?!
We really enjoyed the food and the service for our small birthday celebration. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a large group (~30 people) which made it very difficult to hear each other throughout our visit. This was disappointing.
It was enclosed in plastic fire pit not working... it hasn't worked for months and the establishment doesn't seem to be willing to repair it
I have been to The Port several times and always loved it. But this time, we waited more than an hour for our food and I was really unimpressed with my meal - Pork and Beans. Sadly, I'm reluctant to go back.
Visited a couple of times now over the years, and have to say that the view never disappoints. Always appreciate the adventurous food items on offer.
Unfortunately, our lunch was awful. I ordered the pate which was like spam. My sister had a salad and although the presentation was lovely was so small. Our desserts took 20 minutes to arrive so our server did not charge us. Truly unfortunate my husband and I always went to Port, but I would never go back....
Port offers quality and inventive food items amidst a great setting along the waterfront of Frenchman's Bay in Pickering. While the menu items are inventive, I find there wasn't enough balance in the main course offerings and appetizers between non-seafood and seafood dishes. I would have enjoyed having a greater choice of non-seafood items on the menu.
The wine list could use some expanding as well, most notably with white wines. I think a greater range of white varietals, regions and price points would have been helpful. The red wine list is better but could also use some expansion.
Ambiance at Port is upscale and modern, but I felt they had the lights a bit too dim and could use to brighten the dining room a small amount. The main dining area has a noise level that is certainly acceptable when it is full of small groups, but it can get very loud if larger groups show up. We experienced a calm setting for most of our meal but as we were eating dessert a larger group arrived and the noise level jumped to a point where we were glad to be almost finished.
While we didn't sit at the bar this time, we have in the past and find it to be a nice spot for drinks or a quick meal. The patio in the summertime is among the best within 20 KMs.
Pricing is not unreasonable but perhaps a bit higher than the area might call for. It's good for special occasions but wouldn't be feasible to dine out regularly.
We were there for our anniversary and we quite enjoyed their unique way of noting and celebrating anniversaries by offering couples a complimentary glass of Port wine...so in other words, we enjoyed a complimentary glass of Port at PORT! Nice touch...
