    Had a reservation for 6:15 and we were seated at the bar. We informed the server we had a show at 8. Our food arrived at 7:30. Completely unacceptable.

    Best expresso martini Ive ever had. The beef salad was huge and two of us shared it. My filet mignon was perfectly cooked and so tender o barely needed a knife. Service was great. Pricy restaurant.

    Love the ambiance of this steakhouse, very elegant feel inside. Everything was very good, the lobster tail was cooked perfect and the NY Strip was a phenomenal cut. My girl loved her 5oz Filet and side of Brussel sprouts as well! We’ll definitely be back in the future

    The food was very good and our waitress was very accommodating. However, we had advised the waitress from the beginning that we had a gluten allergy in our group. She gracefully acknowledged and said she would pass that along to the kitchen staff. We ordered GF items from the menu, but somehow in all of it the kitchen must have cross-contaminated as a member of our party became very ill later that evening as a result of this contamination. The menu advertises many GF options. however, this is very misleading considering the outcome of our meal and how we had to end our night short due to this error by the kitchen staff.

    The food here is always fantastic! I wish they could make a gluten free wedge salad, as I would LOVE that! Also, when making a reservation online, it would be awesome if we could specify a type of table we would want, as it would have been great to have one of the comfy cozy booths for my birthday (which they knew it was my bday ahead of time). Overall a great place.

    Really enjoyed the food at Portico. It was amazingly fast service! We were done eating in close to one hour. The only negatives were being place in a back corner away from everything and the feeling of being rushed. Other than that it was delicious!!!!!

    The service was good, but I dislike wait staff who use terms of endearment with their customer(s). It's belittling. Also, commenting on my outfit was also inappropriate.

    The NYE Buffet was a great dinner, but was not worth anywhere near the price that was charged--$125 per person, plus 20% gratuity automatically added so $150 per person. Bacchanal Buffet in Las Vegas charges $80 and is a dramatically better deal. I have no real complaints with the meal other than the price. I will never eat here again due to this. They are trying to make a profit without providing a reason for the cost.

    I wanted to enjoy this more but the entrees were below average for the environment and for the price I would expect at least something more than bad Applebees food. Service was good but the food is just not going to be recommended or ever bring me back and that’s a shame.

    My filet was very good....cooked perfectly and tender. The Bolognese was good but it appeared to be ground beef not braised beef in the sauce. The Caesar salad did not taste like a Caesar salad. It lacked cheese and the flavor of the dressing was off. I have had better at less fancy restaurants. The poached pear salad had very little pear in it. It was very busy at the restaurant and was noisey. The service was average. Silverware was not brought to the table after salad plates were removed. I had to ask for silverware. The only thing they brought after the salad was a steak knife, no forks....I had to ask. I also had to request refill on my drinks. I had an open table reservation that indicated we were celebrating a birthday. The hostess saw it but did not relay it to the wait staff. I had to tell the wait staff about the birthday. Food was overpriced in my opinion. Music was good and lighting for ambiance was good....but it became very noisey. I was first to be seated at 4:30pm....but others got their entrees before my table.

    Took our brother for his birthday and quite frankly the meal and service was very disappointing. Very slow to come and greet us and take a drink order. Then another long pause before taking the food order. The bread in the burrata crostini was so soggy it fell apart. The calamari was mushy. My brother’s ribeye was definitely not 16 oz and my veal parmigiana was so laden with cheese and salty to really enjoy. Had to ask for steak knives and to clear the appetizer plates away when the dinner entrees arrived. They served a birthday dessert complimentary that was very nice but never bothered to remove the bread baskets even when the dessert arrived. The floor was dirty with wrappers. The restaurant was half empty yet dinner took 3 hours. Not a $400 experience for sure.

    Since the last time I was at Portico, it seems the prices have increased significantly. A small salad and a sea bass entree with tax/tip was $72. There was a large party in another room and this caused service to be spotty. One appetizer came out very quickly; the salad a few minutes before the entree. Another person's meal came out 10 minutes after the other two. The servers were working hard and were very apologetic. The food was good overall however the high prices will preclude my return anytime soon.

    Another wonderful meal at Portico. We tend to order a variety of dishes and share which gives us a chance to try more delicious food. First time trying the Brussel sprouts, amazing!! The staff is wonderful. They were kind enough to contact me about me reservation. Noting I would be late for the show we attended and changed my reservation for earlier. That is service! I highly, highly recommend. Never disappointed.

    We were seated promptly upon our arrival. We ordered the white bean and greens soup, the ceasar salad and a wedge salad. Then a chicken thigh Marsala, a 14oz veal chop, a filet and a seabass. Then a warm apple compote, a pumpkin cheesecake and coffee with biscotti. Everything was outstanding. A wonderful evening
