PORT Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 ?!
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...
Little surprised to arrive for our reservation only to be ignored by the hostess. Our server, Brittany made up for our lack lustre reception with her friendly demeanor and outstanding service! The food was top notch as usual! Our thanks for Brittany! Your customer service is outstanding!
The Port has become a tradition for special celebrations. Today was a birthday. The service was great but my wife’s steak was dry. It was cooked to to her request of medium-rare but is it was not savory.
We will go back as our other special occasions at The Port have been excellent. Hopefully this was a one off.
While I can’t speak to the rest of the dinner options, I found that the SEAFOOD CASSOULET was absolutely horrible for several reasons. First, it was over garnished and over spiced. Every mouthful tasted like a spoon of dry spice. Second, something else was off with the meal.... the seafood itself was not fresh. In fact, some of it had the texture of being frozen. This restaurant needs to be all about fresh food. Two of us had that meal and both of us did not fully eat it. Really disappointed because I like the restaurant.
Braedon 'a service was great !Quality of food was excellent . My wife and I had the Lamb shoulder with sides of mixed mushrooms and fried brussel sprouts !We have told many people about Port since Oct 6th... we will be back soon !

A delightful experience. The setting was excellent, with a view of the sailboats at mooring. The decor was comfortable and relaxed. Our waitress was amazingly entertaining and helpful. The prices and menu were excellent. All in all, a very positive experience for a special occasion.
Another wonderful experience at Port for my wife and I. The staff, food, and atmosphere were all top notch as usual. The food was prepared to perfection and our server was friendly and engaging. Atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. Will be visiting again soon. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Port to anyone looking for a classy mealtime experience. Although I feel there were some finer touches missing (i.e. bread to start, more options on the specials), the overall quality of the food and experience was exceptional. This was a special occasion for us (proposal) that the staff helped to go off without a hitch, from our seated location to some special requests I made for the surprise, I was very pleased with the service provided...the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Thank you so much Port for giving us a memorable evening that will be with us for the rest of our lives.
Went once and wouldn't go back. The relationship between the food quality, price and service wasn't there for me personally. The food was decent but I wouldn't rave about it. The view is phenomenal - no doubt about that - granted the patio obviously depends on the weather. Maybe it is me - but portion sizes are really small these days it seems.
Haven't been in a while - good improvement. Great day outside in patio and i understand they are working on a ew things like the firepit and more comfortable chairs but it was good to be outside. The mea was good as the menu improved as well. Pleasant surprise.
Due to our unusually long wait for the main course, the manager generously offered to provide a complimentary dessert, which was much appreciated. Also, the waitress quickly and without question replaced my overcooked salmon, allowing me to take home the overcooked piece for sandwiches the next day. The mussels, salmon and Brussels sprouts were all delicious, and I look forward to my next visit.
