My wife and first went this exquisite establishment a year and a half ago. I found it Amazing! If anything, it was even better this time around! Specifically called several weeks in advance for one of the high tables that overlook the Kitchen. To watch your own food being cooked and see consummate chefs at work was just great. Words... More

We totally enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the vibe of this restaurant! I had grilled Caesar salad and filet in a puff pastry. The vegetables of the day were perfectly cooked and presented. My spouse had firecracker shrimp (heat level 8) and a seafood medley that included mussels; he finished his meal off with caramel dessert that melted in... More

Delicious classic French food; professional, yet warm, service; cozy, yet not crowded table placement; soft, but not elevator type, music; comfortable banter among the guests; and personal conversations with the owners (She is the front of the house, he, the chef. If you visit, remember that it is a BYOB. Wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

I went to this restaurant on a Tuesday night with co-workers (we are in town for work meetings).We arrived at 8 and there was only one other table... the atmosphere was nice and quiet. The kitchen is open, which I enjoyed. We started with bread service, and also tried the firecracker shrimp, which had a spicy kick, but came with... More

We were a party of 4 having dinner before going to Longwood's Nightscape. The service and general friendliness of the place was wonderful, and the food was exceptional. Appetizers to desserts, they never missed a beat. Although BYOB, they were very attentive to the wine service. Plenty of parking on the side streets, don't sweat the main drag,

There is nothing like great food and an atmosphere where you can hear your server and carry on a conversation! The soup is beyond delicious, burgers are huge and top notch! The service is above par and Chef Brett and his wife Sandra (who works non-stop) work their way around the room and are such great people, you can tell... More

It is a small but very cozy place and the food is very good. They have an open kitchen so you watch the food being prepared. There presentation is excellent.. It is a BYOB restaurant so you save money.

Couldn't have had a better experience from the moment we walked in to this upscale, fun, hip vibe restaurant on the Main Street In Kennett Square. It's fun to watch the chefs prepare the food while you dine - we enjoyed that. We met Sandra, the lovely owner who graciously took our coats, checked in with us multiple times to... More

The owners are very sociable and helpful. The servers are very courteous and enjoyable to talk with. They have a very nice young staff. The food is fantastic. Their mushroom soup is to die for. My husband had duck and he said it was the best he ever had. Very crispy but not burnt. We found this great restaurant last... More

On a recent trip to Pennsylvania we visited Kennett Square where we had a wonderful dining experience at Portabellos. Not only was the food outstanding and beautifully presented but the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and friendly. Attention to detail was excellent and the Chef/Owner Brett Hulbert personally went from table to table to speak to the diners. The... More
