    Everything ordered was pleasant to the eye and very tasty. The veal parmigiana was huge and excellent. Server was attentive and responsive to requests.

    Wait staff was not very friendly. It felt like we were bothering them. One example: We were told that we had to order apps and meal all at once ( chef’s policy). This was off putting since we didnt know what we wanted. We ate an app and left. HELP ME spend money in your restaurant. Don’t discourage it.

    We frequently dine at Portico. Great food by Fabio. Check out his cooking videos online. Fried calamari is also a must. Ask for Jude or Kelly for your server.

    As a chef myself, I was very disappointed with the quality of my meal. My veal chop was thin and overdone. The mushroom risotto was not Arborio rice and was distasteful and runny. Overall not happy with my meal at all. Overpriced for what I was served. Terrible! I will not be dining there again.

    We chose Portico because we were seeing Jay Leno. We were shocked by the prices! Amber, our waitress was beyond excellent! She advised us of the Prime Rib special that was being offered. Amber’s service rates a 20! The special was definitely more in our price range! The prime rib was the best we have ever had! Although your prices are extremely New York City, we will definitely dine there again when we see a show! Portions were huge! Too much dressing on my Ceasar salad, other than that, absolutely delicious! Hopefully there will be another special when we come! It did not disappoint!

    We enjoyed our visit to the Portico. While the service and food was outstanding we found that the noise in the restaurant a little over the top making it difficult to have a conversation In terms of value, the prices were too high when compared to comparable restaurants. Also, we like the fact that the ingredients was locally sourced. Overall it was still an positive experience.

    Took my Mother to dinner before Jay Leno’s show. It was very loud! The food was excellent! Generous pour of wine, too! Our male waiter was very busy, we waited awhile between our salad and main courses but he was very plesant! We will definitely come again to have dinner!

    Portico at Del Lago is a great dining experience especially for that special occasion. We were given the time to enjoy our pleasant meal without being rushed. An allergy on file was respected and carefully avoided. The fried burrata cheese and pear walnut salad were delicious. The main courses were the stars with the perfectly cooked and seasoned sea bass being my favorite. I saw other well plated savory main dishes delivered to the next table. My husband thought his chicken thigh marsala with broccolini scrumptious and he shared a bite of course. The Brussels sprouts were very good and I think I will ask for that recipe next time. Our waiter Joshua was charming and a culinary expert. He made this dining experience run perfectly. We were seeing the brilliant Jay Leno at The Vine as were many diners, so our checks were settled quickly with time to spare. This review is a bit too long, so very simply the deserts are all awesome. No one will be disappointed if you go to this restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful evening. So glad to see you back and better than ever. Jay Leno was great too.

    Food and service was outstanding. We sat at the bar and the head bartender that is the girl who is usually there was not very friendly as usual. Rushed through dinner and no dessert or coffee offered. Unusual for the casino. The bartenders are all fantastic. The other two bartenders were doing a great job. Next time we will try another restaurant. Maybe the head bartender needs some training on being kind to people she works with and customers she serves.

    The food was very good and the service was great. The wines were a little pricey. I realize that one must pay more for a bottle of wine at a restaurant than you would pay for it in a liquor store. However, quadruple the price is a little too much.

    Wanted something better than the food court fare at Del Lago Resort & Casino. So glad we ate at Portico! We didn’t get traditional entrees, but what we did get was delicious. Every bite. The roasted Brussels sprouts were amazing. My dining companion had a poached pear salad and said it was perfect. We each had a side of Pasta and Suco as our entree, which was tasty and satisfying. For dessert we ordered the flourless chocolate cake to share… it was delicious but very rich… she ended up taking more than half of the cake home to her son, although we ate all the spiced whipped cream and cinnamon gelato that accompanied it! Our server was very attentive and even suggested a “Mockscow Mule” when I refused a cocktail because I was driving. We thought the prices were very fair for the portion size. All in all, we were very pleased with our meal.

    Nice atmosphere and good service. The portions were generous. I ordered the Sea Bass which was cooked perfectly unfortunately the sauce was too salty. My wife ordered a spaghetti and meatball which she couldn’t come close to finishing. She said the meatball lacked flavour. I would give them another try and maybe try one of their other dishes.

    The steak was fine, but hugely overpriced. The wagyu meatball was fine, but a little dry. The scallops were rubbery and over-cooked. Overall, not worth the $200 price tag.

    Server was terrific - professional, timely and made us feel comfortable. Food was delicious. We were seated in very close proximity to other diners and the tables were abnormally closer together than we recalled the last time we were there; so it was not as enjoyable to dine while hearing other louder diners conversations. Overall experience was enjoyable other than the ambiance for this visit.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. The food was delicious, ambiance just the way we like it. The only caveat was the price of alcohol. I made the mistake of ordering 1 glass of riesling wine without looking at the price ahead of time - $14! wow, I was quite surprised when the check arrived and not too impressed. Buyer be ware.

    Horrible service from bartender who spent 85% of time socializing with staff and ignoring the 3 customers she had (including me) to the point that I had to call her multiple times to get food, drink, check. Never once did she come over to me to provide service or check on me without me calling her over.
