The scallops and octopus were especially good. Very nice meal.
The food is as delicious a sampling of dishes from the meze menu which we shared. Brussel sprouts and eggplant were perfect as was the scallop sevice.
Great was to share a meal. Highly recommend
Excellent food and drinks for a girl’s night out. Loved being able to share plates. Volume was perfect to have a conversation.
Delicious food, incredible service. On the pricier side but worth it.
Loved the food and the service was outstanding as well!
Very good food...best calamari we have had in a while. Highly recommend. Service was excellent.
It was great, except I had flies around my ceviche and my glass of wine. Other than that, excellent.
Sorry we were late! The experience made up for our tardiness, and revived us tremendously! Thank you.
setup and decor were excellent. Service and food were amazing. Noise level was perfect. small plates worked out great for us. the Lobster perfideroles were amazing, and my wife really enjoyed the signature cookie desert.
Loved the restaurant! Had a great experience! Just upset that they were out of several items on the menu. Will return for sure especially in the summer! Love the vibe
We love Porto. It never disappoints. Love all the small plates. The service is great and everyone is super friendly.
Great food but service needs work. We were a little early so the hostess put us at the bar. She said she would be back but she never showed. We had to go check on our table which had been ready. The server was friendly but never came back after she took our order and dropped off our wine until she brought the check. We had to pour the wine because she never checked on us. We were also put down as a no show even though we checked in.
Great food, atmosphere, and ambience! Would definitely recommend for a night out with friends
Small wine pours. Lamb chop prices are obscene!!! You should be ashamed!!!
fabulous food. went on a Sunday night and was pretty busy but seated right away. Nice atmosphere with open kitchen. The food was fabulous. we had eggplant fries, they were seasoned just right and nice and crunchy. The lobster profiterole was sweet meat.
For mains we had Seared scallops and Pan roasted Halibut. both delicious. will definitely be back
We had a really great evening! The food was all excellent and sharing the small plates was fun. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. I will definitely go again soon. The prices are quite high but not too much.
Amazing, it was a wonderful evening and the food was spectacular.
Manager should be more thoughtful and plan accordingly to have full menu available for late reservation, out of BRANZINO for Valentines, give me a brake....
Also, I’ve been regular customer and been noticing that some plates getting smaller, for example, the MEZE BOARD is way smaller than usual and don’t think $32 is fair price
Valentine’s dinner is almost always difficult, however with the exception of an outstanding Weller Antique old fashion, the experience on Friday was underwhelming. Not what I expected for Porto. The back room was cold. The food was average and the service was slow which made the food cold...
One of favorite Boston restaurants! Always a big treat to sample the wide variety of dishes. Outstanding food and service!
Great food but somewhat pricey. The service was a little slow but the brussel sprouts are a must!
It's rare to find artfully presented, well prepared food that tastes as amazing as it looks and is actually served in adequate, fairly priced portions to that equate to a legitimate meal. Porto delivers across the board in every metric so please, book in advance so you don't have to wait to try this place. You won't regret it.
Great food, great location. Server was thoughtful and very capable in most areas, however he was unfamiliar with their rye selection. Other than that everything was excellent.
There’s something for everyone at Porto. Delicious small plates with a modern Mediterranean flare. The service is excellent. It’s my go to whenever I go to Boston. Can’t wait to go back!
Great food. Wonderful drinks. Terrific service. Enjoyable atmosphere. Would recommend.
Great food, great location
Love all of the different tastes.
First visit. Birthday dinner. Shared mezze platter, pasta bloomers and bread pudding for dessert. Perfect amount of food for 2 of us. Everything was delicious. Waiter was excellent. Looking forward to another meal, soon.
Really enjoyed our meal and overall experience. We will be back again soon.
Porto never disappoints - the food is outstanding and the service impeccable. Love, love, love it!
This would have been an excellent experience if not for our server, if we could have eliminated the service charge we would have done it, tipped less than the twenty percent.Joe needed to be reminded of our wine order and a cocktail order (that wasn’t prepared like the first one that was ordered)not his fault, but when it wasn’t consumed didn’t question us if there was something wrong.
However, the food is excellent. The kitchen deserves all the accolades. All of the dishes were shared and the servings were generous.
Seems a better place for drinks and a bite, not dinner. Service was casual and not very good - from the initial greeting, to drinks, to dinner, to dessert.
Delicious creative food. Great service and ambience.
My friend and I both loved our meal at Porto; we started with oysters and for dinner shared the scallop ceviche, shrimp in terra-cotta, and the pan-roasted halibut; we also shared a lovely bottle of Crémante. Everything was delicious (though we ranked the ceviche as the best of the trio of small plates; presentation was delightful; service was excellent—speedy and pleasant, not hovering or rushing. The atmosphere was casual and stimulating at the same time, with a wonderful vibe attributable to a house full of folks enjoying truly marvelous food.
Really nice vibrant dining room vibe! We had a rare date night and wasn’t sure if we’d be out of place going to Porto (two 40-something folks going out for our first date night in a looooong time). The meal was fab, the ambience was fantastic - just dim enough lighting, laid back setting (really felt like a nice expansive dining room - we were in a smaller area behind the bar) and great service all around. All in all - a great value. Good to see Porto thriving and even at Logan Airport, no less! Bravo.
My friends and I really enjoyed Porto. Overall, the meal was tasty (a little salty for my taste but the rest of the group didn't notice) and the drinks (cocktails and wine) were all excellent. This isn't an inexpensive place so come prepared to spend if you're going to do cocktails, wine, apps, entree, and desert. We had an excellent time and the service was some of the best I've received in Boston. I would definitely recommend.
We keep coming back to Porto. The menu is a changing tableau of fresh tastes and flavors that can be shared. Service is professional and friendly. And the $1 oyster special in the early evening is a lot of fun. Looking forward to sitting outside in the spring!
Nice time getting together with friends post holiday. Small plates were excellent to share. Paella was excellent
