Lovely ambience, great food and the service was superb. Just a great evening.
We were here for a birthday. The food was great and the staff were friendly. Pretty background for pictures.
Nice atmosphere, good food and service, portions were just right
Our party of 4 had a great evening at Al Porto. Everyone loved their dishes. My veal marsala was exceptionally tasty and the vegetable sides were cooked perfectly. The tiramisu was light and flavourful. We had a fantastic bottle of Brunello with dinner (one of 6 on the wine list) The service was fantastic. Al Porto lived up to its billing as a fine dining experience and we will all be happy to return again, hopefully in the near future.
Great time excellent food love the restaurant will be back many times more.
Took Sam the waiter 35 minutes to take our order. We waited 30 minutes after our main meal for him to serve the desert---. No wonder the top Italian restaurants in Vancouver were all fully booked for the weekend but easy to get a table at this restaurant-that should have been a red flag !!!
Once we found the place, we had a very nice dinner. The seafood antipasto was excellent! Good entrees and the service was good as well. We'll definitely be back.
Been here a few years ago and today was not what we expected. Food was bland, no flavour, pizza had no salt, meat was tasteless. I switched my meal for gluten free and my sauce was changed as well with no additional information. Was looking forward to the meal for a birthday but unfortunately won’t come again. Only plus side was the service was on point and very good.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I totally recommend this place.
I think we were forgotten!
Terrific! Excellent service and food
Excellent! Wonderful food and vibe for date night!
The catch of the day, fresh halibut steak with saffron risotto and vegetables, was excellent. The sever was very personable. This was an awesome choice for our anniversary dinner this year. Al Porto never disappoints.
Haven’t been to Al Porto in many years and forgot what a gem it is. I had the seafood risotto which was outstanding. Service was excellent and I felt I’d been transported out of the city for a bit. Prices have gone up considerably, but it’s still worth it. Given how impacted the service industry has been, it’s to be expected. I’ll be back.
My husband and I went for a lovely dinner. The food was excellent, as was the service. We would definitely return.
Food was good but not exceptional. Service was excellent and the spacing and covid protocols were great.
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.
