The food was great and the service was wonderful. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. We are going to be coming back once a month.

We always have a wonderful experience at Portico. Our service was very slow this last time & they weren't that busy.

We decided to go to Portico for two reasons. One is was our anniversary and two it was Restaurant Week. We were given a menu and had to ask about the Restaurant Week special menu. We noticed that another party had the Restaurant Week specials. Our server had to ask the hostess about this. How do they not know about this? Why did one server know of this and not another? We felt that after we asked about this, our server had an attitude of now we weren't spending a lot of money. We were going cheap; which wasn't the case. We enjoyed our food selection and will probably go there again.

The staff is awesome and helpful in making suggestions. Service was awesome. Ambiance is excellent. Will definately be back again. Love the portico 💛💙💝

This is a full dining experience. We enjoyed our half price appetizer of the octopus. It was hearty and tasty. We both tried the new chicken dish. I was fearful because I don’t like change, but it exceeded expectations. Very tasty! Finally the mint trifle dessert was also new. Delicious! Always a great meal! Attentive service. We stayed to chat for hours. At the busiest it was a bit loud but earlier and then later in the meal it was quiet. Also having the chicken and not the usual seafood and steak meal made the meal very reasonably priced. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Visit was ok, service not as good as the first time we had dined. Server did not come check on us after appetizers, we had to search out and get our own salt and pepper. Entree came and while twirling pasta was cut on my finger by sharp metal burr on fork handle. Again, server was not around so finished meal with salad fork. I let server know when she dropped off check that I had been sliced by metal on fork and that it shouldn’t be used any additional guests. I will say she stated she would take care of it, but didn’t even inquire if my finger was ok. Again, I realize this a finger slice and not loss of limb, but it was actually bleeding and would have been nice if server had checked with me. We have dined in this restaurant once before and raced of the food and service. Sadly, this time it was a little lacking.

I've been here on 2 separate occasions and both dinners were outstanding. Most recently I had the lobster mac and cheese and my wife had the rigatoni carbonara. Service was very good. My only knock would be the chocolate cake was mediocre.

There were four of us for dinner / drinks.
Service was excellent and attentive.
Drinks and food was also excellent, the Chilean Sea Bass, The lamb, and the appetizers were fantastic.
Chef even did calamari non-breaded / deep fried for us.
We love going to Portico!

Portico staff is very welcoming, and knowledgeable regarding the food and beverage menus. Our server was very helpful answering questions and making suggestions. The food is delicious again and again, as we have visited several times. Portions are more than ample and a great value for both quality and quantity. Can't wait to dine again soon.

Great service and tasty food items for our party. The only problem was the food was only warm. Would have been outstanding if food had been hot.

The evening was fantastic. The food was excellent and our waitress was amazing. The hostess was good too. However the service in the bar area was unwelcoming and we had reservations. This did not ruin our evening, we had a wonderful time.

Where to start?? Let me say simply "one and done". Took wife there for our New Years Anniversary, and in short it was an awful experience. Let's start with the menu, we were not told that there was a standard menu, so what went there for was not an option. Next came drinks, I ordered an $8 Seagrams and 7 up, what I got was a 7 up. Next came appetizers, I had the shrimp cocktail, which was the only good part of the meal. Next came the soup, I ordered the lobster bisque, not only was it so salty that it was not edible but there was not enough in the bowl to even cover the spoon. Now the entree, I ordered the steak, which was okay. Honestly, if you plan on eating there be prepared to pay Michelin prices for diner quality food. Highly suggest you spend your hard earned money elsewhere. We were sat 5 ft from a two man band, they were good but the acoustics were awful, literally had to raise my voice and lean in order to have a conversation with my wife. Also, seating felt like we were in cafeteria, we were so close to another couple we felt weird talking (had to talk loudly), but it also did not feel right if we did not talk to them. All and all, not a good experience for us, we will not return.

Menu limited. Prices reasonable. Comfortable seating, table location. Server was pleasant enough, but she brought the wrong entree after my wife had selected one of two she discussed with the server.

Our server Sarah was more than accommodating as one party in our group is gluten free. They made a variation of a few salads for her and it looked delicious. I split calamari and caprese salad. Both we’re outstanding.

A very nice high end restaurant, a little pricey, but worth the money for high quality products and service.

my party of 4 had a 6:15 reservation and were seated very close to that time. The waitress did a great job BUT the people in the kitchen that were preparing the food did a terrible job of getting the food out of the kitchen. I am not sure if the kitchen staff was not adequate or if they did not have a clue what they were doing. What I do know is that the food for my table did not arrive until after 7:30 and we did not have time to finish and/or enjoy the meal with tickets for a show at 8:00 PM. So, I would recommend the restaurant for a weeknight or not a night that had a show. The food is decent. The acoustics are terrible; very noisy restaurant.
