    We were there for Dine Out Vancouver and what an amazing experience it was. Our server was so polite and made our experience one to remember. The food was spectacular. We have already made a decision to return again. It felt like we were travelled to Italy to taste the food and wine. Simplicity yet extraordinary. Thank you so much for the wonderful evening.

    All of us very much enjoyed the ambiance and especially the food. Only down side was where I was sitting, when anyone open or held the door, a bad draft of cold air would enter.

    The food was amazing. I would go back just on that alone. Our server was great. Very wholesome people. The only issue I had was the time it took for our food to come out. However it was worth the wait. Really good food.

    We had a lovely evening - Greta service, excellent food. My only gripe would be a wish that the music was softer. I did ask for it to be turned down a bit but we still struggled to hear each other talk. We will be back!

    We went to Portobello for NYE dinner... I hesitantly made a reservation as typically I am disappointed with the food and atmosphere even with my favourite restaurants on NYE. Portobello did not disappoint. The food was outstanding (as always), the service was perfect... attentive but not too much and the atmosphere was wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to go to Portobello for NYE again, but I will return much sooner!

    We enjoyed our evening but found the noise level high and the facility to be chilly. The cioppino, linguini vongole and the short rib were all hits. The veal piccata was quite dry and rather tasteless. On the whole, we had a very good experience and will be returning.

    I have driven past this restaurant for years and was always left wondering about it. I love the aesthetic on the outside so finally after all these years my sister and I made a reservation. We were greeted, with smiles and super friendly staff. We had the buratta, daily soup, homemade bread. Then had our mains… I had clam and white wine pasta and my sister had the pinenutt pasta both were outstanding. We will definitely be back.

    Disappointed with our server as we only found out there were two daily specials from the server at the table beside us after we received our food? We ordered the seafood pasta and only the prawns were edible.,the veal in lemon sauce was underwhelming. We would not go back.

    We ordered appetizer Mushroom, but the sever made mistake made order "mussels". As I'm allergic to mussel that's way I can't eat. Only my friend ate all of it. I think the sever need to double confirm our order. Overall the enrivoment is good but little bit pricey.

    Made a booking and was a little late but was seated right away. The food took over an hour but the server and the host were very apologetic about the situation. There was only 1 chef that night, as the other didn't show up. When the food finally arrived it tasted great. We also had some complimentary dessert that tasted very good! Keep in mind is that there are only a couple of vegetarian options on the menu.

    Just enjoyed our first dinner at Portobello last night, which will definitely be followed by many more! The hospitality was warm and welcoming, the atmosphere was equally inviting, the food was obviously prepared with love, and the service was top-notch. It wasn’t the standard “how are the first few bites” spiel; our waiter was totally paying attention to our pace, our selections, and ensuring we had a great experience. We were also pleasantly surprised by how reasonable the pricing was for both the food (generously portioned) and the wine (great range band selection). We’ll definitely be back!
