Server was very inexperienced. We ordered wine with dinner, she never brought it but then told our table they were out of our request. At this time we were just about finished our dinner.
We were celebrating two birthdays and we started with a round of cocktails from the bar. We also tried the Carpaccio, Muscles and Bruschetta all fantastic choices. We continued with the salads and quickly moved into the mains. The Steak & Lobster combo was the choice of the night. Excellent quality and great taste. I highly recommend visiting Al Porto in Gastown, its perfect for any size gathering.
Fantastic service and delicious food !
Amazing place! Would definitely go again!
After being seated we were greeted by a lady. After that no one returned until we gestured that we haven’t been attended to and asked for assistance. The lady simply walked over and stated oh okay. Kind of felt out of place. It was our first time dining at Al Porto and weren’t really given too much information on the meals as to how big the portions are. So much of the food went to a waste as most of the items ordered were for sharing purposes. I have to admit the fellow serving the water was very attentive.
We found our meal expensive and not that good.
We will not return.
Very good value for your money. Great service by all. Paid three times that for half the quality at some high end restaurants when we were in Vancouver.
Great location and feel.
Great place to celebrate my birthday!!
We had a pleasant dining experience, relaxed environment, prompt service, no feeling rushed with the current dining restrictions. Already making plans to go back
Very noisy and hard to have a conversation at your own table but the food was good so 🤷🏻♀️
Excellent food, ambiance and service.
We highly recommend.
The food was great, the service was friendly, the decor is very warm and it was very quiet when we were there. Well, I like the place.
Flustered, slow service. I get they were busy but simple organization and better knowledge of the menu would have gone a long way.
The food was very good but I found the service frustrating. We waited quite a long while before our order was taken. This could be because the restaurant was understaffed due to the staffing shortages in the industry in which case the restaurant is really at fault.
Great service and nice menu selection. Good ambiance!
This was a terrific place to enjoy great food, great service! We were staying at the Pan Pacific and the restuarant was within walking distance. The server, Craig, was super nice and we had a pleasant chat with him.
We loved it and will be recommending it to our friends and family!! And we will come there again next time we are in downtown Vancouver!
Loved our waiter John
Service: The waiter seemed to have had a bad day. Took them very long time to bring us the food even though we were the only customers. We were hoping to reflect that in the tip but the re was a fixed service fee so we didn’t have a chance to decide.
Food: Mediocre. The risotto was not cooked properly. Portions are small—my friend had ordered a salad and it was so ridiculously small that he was really disappointed after waiting so long.
Vibe: Interior is nice and well decorated with lots of space. The entrance though is in a not-very-nice alley.
I love this restaurant. The food and service is amazing. Highly recommend!
Food was barely average and price was high
Cute place off the beat. Great service . I wish that the restaurant would have contacted me about the small menu because of covid. Food was good though.
Perfect place for a quiet date night. Older crowd. Food is very good. Service is outstanding. Probably a little pricy but still a great spot.
We all really enjoyed our dining experience. The only negative was we were kept waiting a while till we ordered food. The drinks came quickly and the food was delicious. The serving staff were super.
Great little restaurant with character. Food is good and customer service was exceptional. Well Done!!!!
Had my bday dinner @ Al Porto on Friday. Both service, food and wine selection were superb. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of me and my friends!
Best restaurant meal we've had in quite awhile. A bit pricey though.
Delicious food, attentive services and wonderful atmosphere.
The linguine with sea food was beyond words. Some other dishes were okay but not as that one. The service was really friendly and good. There is no view if you are expecting a view but the ambiance is nice. Maybe because of the friendly service.
The evening was so enjoyable. One of the best features of Al Porto is that they have round tables. We had a party of 6, so a round table facilitated great conversations. The feature of halibut with prawns and saffron risotto was excellent. We enjoyed out serving team who were there when needed. This is a traditional Italian restaurant with excellent food and service.
Good food, service and wine. Was an enjoyable evening.
It was great. Very quiet due to pandemic but the food was outstanding.
Incredible service every time
The food was always great ..good service by Carlos !
The greeting was warm & friendly, service was very efficient & the food was excellent. We enjoyed the whole experience. Very few people there - I hope for their sakes that people go back to dining in now that the pandemic restrictions are easing.
We were there yesterday and we loved it. The food was really excellent, and really great service. We will certainly go back. A gem to be discovered !!
Martine and Claude
Fabulous evening, amazing food and great service thanks to John!!!
He has served us before and is always very attentive!
The food was great, as always. They didn't have the full dessert menu so I tried the lemon curd for the first time and it was delicious! We were celebrating my friend's birthday so our server decorated the dessert plate with chocolate icing. We had a really nice evening.
