Porto boasts a large and beautiful patio space in the middle of Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. The menu is based on Mediterranean selections with a focus on Italy. Porto is located on Ring Road in Boston's Bay Bay, steps from the Prudential Center and Copley, next door to Saks Fifth Avenue.

Enjoy a lively meal in either of Porto's well appointed dining rooms, or indulge in a casual meal at the bar or kitchen counter seating, overlooking the oyster bar and open kitchen. Porto's one-of-a-kind outdoor patio and bar overlooks Ring Road with Boylston Street views, and serves as a Mediterranean oasis, right in the heart of Back Bay.

    Really excellent food. A bit of confusion from the wait staff about the wine list but they were polite and accommodating. The dining rooms are not large so the noise level is quite high. But overall we had a really good experience.

    We all eat at chain restaurants in Boston and I'm no exception. But how wonderful to be able to enjoy the fantastic food -- in an incomparable patio location -- created by an amazing team of chef/owners. And because they're local and incredibly generous, the team is well-known for their support of non-profits that help our Massachusetts neighbors. An example of this is their participation in this weekend's Pan Mass Challenge that supports Dana Farber's Cancer Institute!

    Elegant, sophisticated, great for celebrating or after work drinks. Meals were a bit pricey, but they serve homemade free bread and homemade olive oil. Housemade cocktails were phenomenal. Great staff. Will definitely be back. Ate outside and for people into social media, great location to Instagram.

    A local favorite! Porto works on many levels: excellent food, lovely atmosphere, great for outdoor dining. Service is attentive though occasionally the rush to clear plates is puzzling. Overall, very dependable and the yummy appetizer menu and generous portions means that you don't have to spend a fortune. My friends thought their wine pours were a little short, but that is easily rectified!

    This sequence of events never happens in the US: One: you go to a restaurant and have a difficult time choosing what to have from the menu because everything looks so good! Two: everything you order is outstandingly delicious, so that the gaps between the individual ingredients described in print on the menu and the ingredients themselves are filled by a constellation of flavors that unify the dish and elbow their way into your palate memory! Well done chef and assistants; well done to the very professional waiter, the Denzel Washington look-alike who looked like he knew we half expected him to address us in Shakespearean English. He knew exactly when to be tableside and when to leave us alone. Elegant professionalism. Bravo!

    Our waiter was just amazing! He came over to us and made sure we were comfortable and had drinks while we were waiting for the others in our party. He made all recommendations when we asked and he was quite attentive. The food was just amazing - The Porto Plateau is a must for seafood lovers and the steak was delicious! They accommodated for a veggie substitute instead of potatoes which was great too! This place is a gem

    Porto excellently handled our party of ten for a business dinner. The cocktails and fresh seafood were excellent and our server was friendly and efficient. The ambiance is great and we had a nice little alcove to ourselves across from the bar. I'd definitely recommend Porto!

    Great food, service was okay. Food came out really fast which is nice but it was not coursed out at all. Our steak came before our appetizers. Our server didn’t bring all the items we ordered. Our wine was not kept in a chiller, and was over poured so it got warm. Our party wasn’t checked on to see if we needed anything else or to make sure the food tasted okay. Overall good restaurant missing those those touches that make a good dining experiences.

    The service was very slow. The scallops and the halibut were very good but the pasta was lackluster. For the price (over $100 per person for an entree and two drinks) I wouldn’t recommend it and likely won’t be back again.
