Wonderful restaurant! Cozy and friendly atmosphere, with excellent service. All 6 of us loved our appetizers and entrees, whether it was seafood, pasta or a meat dish. BYOB also helped the overall value of the meal.

Decided to try Portabello's on the basis of good reports. It lived up to it's name as a homely looking restaurant serving honest food. My biggest challenge was making a choice from the menu options. We were served by Autumn, who was both friendly and efficient without being in any way pushy. I opted for the fried Brussel sprouts to... More

Had a delightful and delicious dinner at Portabello's last night; I reserved the chef's table which is a high top across from the open kitchen so you can watch the chef prepare your food and everyone else's. The kitchen is well organized, no chaos or screaming like they like to show on TV. The preparation and presentation is a pleasure... More

What a great location and wonderful ambience with the open kitchen. Service was slow, quirky and lacked any personality: seemed that the kitchen was not interested in getting us our food. We waited a long time for our first course and for our meal- maybe that's their plan? Food was over cooked, over spiced and lacked care- French onion soup... More

We visited Portabello's after a long day at Longwood Gardens, and let me say, it was AMAZING! I have a very severe nut allergy which makes it hard for me to eat at a lot of places. The server genuinely cared about my allergy and made me feel safe. They even cleaned the entire salad prep surface to make sure... More

My wife and I love to visit Longwood Gardens frequently to celebrate the color and beauty of each season. The highlight of our day is having dinner at Portabellos. I think our day is more enjoyable in anticipation of the wonderful food and relaxing atmosphere. (Restaurant is BYOB) A few tables are also set up out front if you like... More

We visited Longwood Gardens in the afternoon, then went 4 miles away to enjoy a wonderful meal at this cute BYOB in Kennet Square. We forgot our wine so picked up a couple of bottles in a Wine And Spirits store near the restaurant. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately at a table in the front of the restaurant.... More

Chef Brett Hulbert has it down pat! From the moment we walked in, the hostess treated us like family, the service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. Perfect place to meet up with our friends from Maryland after going to Longwood Gardens. Definitely will be returning!

This is the second time my husband and I ate at Portabello's and I must say it was a huge disappointment. The first time we came my husband said it was the best veal parmasean he ever had, so needless to say he was looking forward to that again. We happened to call the restaurant before leaving our hotel as... More

My husband and I came to Portabllo's in search of a good dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary after a couple days of touring local gardens, Longwood & Winterthur. What a disappointment! We were practically the only ones dining the Tuesday evening after Labor Day. All the more reason the chef should have had plenty of time to perfect our... More
