Good service and food. Great patio - bright and comfortable. The only negative is the food supplier delivery trucks parkd adjacent to the resturaunt patio in the morning.
Nice location. Everything else is pretty dull. Plain tasting pasta dishes, far away from an Italian eating experience and overpriced and boring entrees. Overall experience ok due to the outdoor seating and nice surroundings but please get a chef that can cook decent and authentic pasta dishes with homemade pasta. I will continue to have my pasta experience at Tratto across the street for now but it’s disappointing to see a restaurant with this location and nice interior can’t get their kitchen act together.
My husband and I dined there Sat. night and we had a great corner booth inside. Our waitress couldn't have have more attentive and never rushed us.since we ran into several people we know and got aught up in many conversations over our drinks. My husband had a wonderful Tequila Old Fashion, which was different and very tasty. The food was fantastic and all the staff were just great. We will definitely become frequent visitors.
Porto Via is the best restaurant at the new Palisades Village. The food is delicious and of high quality, service is excellent and the ambiance is just right. The manager, Ryan is professional and knows how to run this restaurant.
My go to options are usually the caesar salad, salmon and a glass of wine.
Had an amazing meal, at little small inside and the outside needs more heat lamps and possibly blankets for outdoor dining in the winter
Food pretty good, had tuna sandwich. Server very attentive. Pretty noisy but able to have conversation. One gross thing - the cushions on the booths are badly stained already. At least at our booth. Maybe need to recover in stain resistant fabric or clean frequently.
Great atmosphere and good. Will definitely be returning
Love how they are giving back to the community and giving back to the community by raising funds for firefighters.
Our server was lovely but the length of time to get drinks was too long for such a small venue and when the cocktails did arrive they were weak. Melted ice which tells us they'd been sitting at the bar too long and they were not very good.
Also, the women's restroom was very very dirty. No paper toilet seat covers, paper all over the floor, wet counter just a real mess for such a nice restaurant. I told the on site manager so hopefully the room got cleaned up.
Pleasurable pretty good fresh food pretty decor nice service
Love having them in the palisades! Delicious food and very nice people who work there!
Went for lunch and the inside booths are very comfortable. It's a good place for a casual lunch with a friend. Had the impossible burger which is fabulous as was not in the mood for pasta. My friend had a salad which was decent.
Nice menu, pleasant surroundings, new restaurant of an established brand. The other one I know of is in 90210.
Requested side salad with main course, got the wrong one and they brought it as a starter. They took it away and replaced it with no fuss - very professional. But again as a starter. The guest told the server it was to be eaten with the main course and not to wait to serve the main course. Must have been asked 7 times b different staff if the uneaten salad was no longer wanted, we ended up defending the plate like it was a prize.
One guest requested no bread on the main dish - gluten free - got bread on top. One guest requested dish cooked medium well, got medium rare.
maybe just teething problems and definitely nothing that would stop me trying this place again
Very surprised that on one of its first Saturday nights in business, the ones who threw the wild opening night party left the place to be staffed by children. Chaos at the entrance, lit up bright like a diner with food that was nothing like that offered in Beverly Hills. When we asked for bread with dinner, it was as if we wanted foie gras. Food from all the Palisades Village restaurants tested so far seem to come from the same hotel kitchen. Diners, discuss.
The manager Jose , the service the food was awesome !
