As usual, great! Rib eye was fantastic, Wednesday had a free glass of wine and side. Just made the food, service, and ambiance even better. Sea food bisque is incredible, never had better.

Waitress did not attend us, another waitress came to our table because we were waiting for long tine. People that sat at a table next to us 10 minutes after we were seated had there order taken and were serve before we even had water or bread. A restuarant named after Fabio had extremely poor food. Will not go there again

All 3 of us were there for the first time and found the experience to be wonderful. Great food, great menu, very good staff, surprisingly quiet from the the casino noises outside (it was like walking into a sanctuary). We will be back with other friends to experience it again.

our group enjoyed the service, appetizers and drinks offered at half price. Our server was excellent. I appreciated she asked me for my card to get credit for spending money at the bar. I wish our waiter had reminded me after dinner to do the same because I didn't think of it until I was home.

Almost everything was fantastic especially the service! Michael is kind, knowledgeable, and does a fantastic job in all regards. The only issue was that the creme brûlée recipe had changed since our last visit and was not as good as the prior one.

I made reservations at least one month prior as it was my friend's birthday on 12/31. The reservations were made via phonecall and I was not told the price to dine at Portico was raised substantially due to the NYEve date. Paying $90 per person was a slap in the face given the majority of people dining at Portico were given complimentary food and hotel. There was nothing about the meal to warrant charging $90 per person especially when most didn't pay anything. The meal was obviously prepared banquet style...we were not asked how our steak (surf and turf) should be cooked and the bisque was cold and had a film on top due to not being heated anytime remotely close to our time being served. I was extremely disappointed in the experience especially since it was to be a special outing for my friend's birthday.

Seafood that shold be warm sould be put oout that way.leave the lobster tails whole to make it easier to get out.more napkins.steamed clams should be served warm not ice cold.cofee was excellent..faster cleanup of the tables.we had to look for the watress a little more attentive would make a better tip. overall a good experience. I would go again but with all that sea food you would need to space out your visits.

We were a party of 8 with a reservation on 12/26/18. The service was very, very poor. 2 meals were served, then the remaining meals were brought back to the kitchen. A few minutes later, 5 cold meals were served. 1 meal was not served until the 7 others were done with their meals. The waitress did not ask us if we needed anything or check on our table through the meal, she merely came to take orders and deliver food or drinks at designated times. The waitress spilled coffee as she poured it. The water glasses and bottles were never refilled, and we ran out of water. We were given 2 dessert menus to share among the 8 of us. It took over 2 and a half hours for the meal. The payer of the check wrote a message on the guest check about the poor service, but no manager addressed the issue, no discount was given, and the restaurant had the nerve to include a 20% gratuity on the bill. When the waitress brought the credit card and signature copy to the table at the end of the meal and said nothing. We were all very disappointed in the service and will not return to this restaurant.

We went out to dinner on Christmas Day, since we could not find a Chinese restaurant (movie reference) we went to Delago. We had some of the best steaks ever in New York. Found they had some great specials and some terrific side dishes. We highly recommend.

This was our second visit to Portico. We meet up with family from a neighboring city to celebrate Christmas. We LOVE the food. Everything is always excellent and fresh. This year our server was just not up to par. He seemed distracted, overwhelmed and just wasn't the same as the excellent fun service we received last year. I am to normal someone to post a review, good or bad but something said I should. We will come back as we love the food and the location is perfect. Hope our server is different next year!

We had a group of 9 - the food was delicious and our Waitress was exceptional.The only complaint I have is that with the Veal Chop came with NO side dish. A small portion of pasta or a veggie would have made this dish complete. It was just very odd to us. I liked that fact that the menu changes, it makes it so much interresting because we do like to dine there and try different food choices.

I was very disappointed in the service. We ordered brussel sprouts as a side and never received them. The server was VERY slow, and when we tried getting his attention, it would take several (like 5) times to say his name or "excuse me" to get his attention. The food was good, but the service was so poor, I probably would not go back.

Not the dining experience we had hoped for considering the chefs reputation for excellence.
Food was fair and served luke warm.Just started our appetizer and the entrees arrived ! Our waiter was missing in action for most of the night.
To go into anymore detail would remind me how unpleasant the evening was.
We will not return
