I had high expectations for our dinner @ Portico. The was average at best
We sat outside and despite it being a little cold and windy, we were kept comfortable by the heater. And the lights on the trees and the fire in the fireplace were very nice touches. We will be back for our next special occasion.
Charming venue for a date night. Service was excellent. Menu creative. Presentation outstanding. I had seafood crepes. Tasty but would not order again. The seafood components were kind of ground to a consistency that made it tough to determine whether I was tasting shrimp or scallop or crab.
Really nice restaurant and the food was awesome and delicious
In all the years I’ve been going to Portico, I’ve never had a bad meal or poor service! It’s a lovely setting for luncheon with friends or a cozy dinner by the fire. Their extensive wine list is a perfect complement to their excellent cuisine.
Portico is consistently excellent, for quality food, service and atmosphere
Good luck with getting in but once seated it is a very enjoyable place.
Not a great place to hang out with a large group of friends unless you only want to be there for an hour and a half.
All was lovely except our round table was in bar area and the outlets chairs were directly under loud speakers and also much noise from the bar. Found it difficult to hear conversation.
Otherwise very nice.
Service was great. My husband’s food was cold but the staff got on it immediately. Hot food replacement came fast
The outside sides on the tent were open. It was too cold out for that
Heater ran out of propane had to repeatedly ask to get it turned it. Food not great. Portions so little now. Sad
Visited for the first time for our anniversary dinner. Delicious food, intimate atmosphere. Would definitely return.
Greeted with a happy birthday which was nice. Dinner was not rushed. It was a wonderful experience!
please please change your menu...same old stuff...never anything exciting and the same printed menu since you opened it seems.
Great meal. We had lamb risotto and salmon roulade. Bothe were delicious. I highly recommend the sformato dessert.
We had three pasta dishes and one hamburger - all the food was great.
We sat outside, and the heaters worked well. However it was very loud, and difficult to carry on a conversation at our table for four. (Open table calls the loudest rating "energetic"; we called it unpleasantly loud.) Our waitperson suggested it was due to the tent, but it seemed to us like people were shouting. I guess I would recommend, but with the caveat that you should be prepared for the noise level.
$17 margarita pizza was cool when served. It was tasteless with a thin layer of sauce, some cheese & oil/basil drizzled over parts of the pizza. I've had $3 frozen pizza that tasted better.
Wife’s birthday. The food was delicious, ambiance was awesome with outdoor lighting, waitresses were too busy and not very organized.
Food was great as was the ambiance. Love the outdoor space. Food runners were great but service was off otherwise. Sat for 15 minutes with no service, no water refills, check took a while, etc. unusual as I’ve typically had great experiences.
Great food and great setting.
All members of our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal; steaks were cooked to perfection; pasta entrees were scrumptious; service was impeccable and absolutely loved sitting by the outdoor fireplace for an after-dinner drink. Highly Recommend!
I love this place. Every time I go the service is excellent and the food is outstanding. The bartender even made a drink that wasn't on their menu for me. Highly recommend
The knowledgeable staff gives the perfect amount of attention. Justin was knowledgable about the history if the place, ingredients in the bread dipping sauce, the wine, and on and on. Very special experience!
Dinner was delicious!!! Love the atmosphere!!
As always, Portico food and service was exceptional... It never misses. We had dinner and all six of us enjoyed everything and the outdoor patio is great
It was an awesome date night spot!
The vodka penne pasta and the rosemary chicken were delicious 😋
A wonderful spot for an anniversary dinner, particularly the outdoor seating. Food was wonderful and loved the ambiance
Price of steak on menu was $29.95, when bill arrived we were charged $37.50, an increase of 25%. When this was questioned the waiter said that prices had been increased but not changed on the menu. We feel that this is unethical, we should have been told that prices had increased. We will suggest to all our friends that they avoid Portico.
On a scale of 1-10 we rate the food a 5.
Delightful setting. Broad (perhaps too broad?) menu and our entrees were very very good.
I must say this was the best place to eat for me everything was outstanding loved it
Food was delicious and the ambience perfect! Service was excellent as well!
Incredible food and service
We had a wonderful meal with great friends. Great food and great service and lovely dining atmosphere.
Originally disappointed not to be able to eat outside, we were seated by an open window overlooking the garden, and it was perfect. The ambiance inside was magical, the service excellent (thank you, Justin!), and the food was amazing. This is a first-rate experience!!!
Amazing gnocchi and cocktails. Our server was attentive and the hostess was friendly and accommodating. A little sad we didn’t see the portico kitty.
We love this place. This time the brunch was so so.
great ambiance and amazing food! had my bday dinner here and i cant wait to come back!!!
