The kitchen aims to cook very good produce, as simply as possible but with imagination and plenty of care. The menu is driven by what arrives from our suppliers each day.
Our wine list is international and offers roughly three quarters of our wines by the glass
Fantastic Main Dishes, a bit disapointed with the desserts though. A superb restaurant overall. However, a bit overpricy.
We visited Portland for my friends 40th. The food was exceptional and the service complemented it with the same standard.
Starters were ok but not special.
Main courses tasted almost like airline food. Over cooked fish, watery mushrooms in a vegetarian dish.
Priced as a Michelin star restaurant with very mediocre food.
Not a good experience.
The food was amazing from all points of view
Staff cute and nice
A very friendly welcome and the lovely smells coming from the open kitchen are what greets you one you walk into Portland. And it just gets better. The service is relaxed but attentive and the food exceeds the expectations that the descriptions on the menu and the smells that greeted you set when you arrived.
You won't be disappointed. An interesting wine list, sadly not cheap, but then that seems to be the norm in central London restaurants these days.
Great food and very pleasant service, big sister to Clipstone, even better food, although prefer ambiance of Clipstone
Great little spot, will repeat.
Fantastic food, slightly small servings but not extremely so. Super flavours. Would recommend
Great relaxed atmosphere and some lovely personal touches from the staff for my partners Birthday. Amazing food, excellent service!
Portland is a consistently excellent restaurant. The food is outstanding, the service always excellent, and it's very comfortable to sit there and talk to one's fellow diners, as the music level is very low indeed. Altogether one of my favourite restaurants in London.
We all had the tasting menu. This is well thought out. Started with a small tomato soup which had a lemon grass foam. Excellent. A few more nibbles, chicken skin with parfait, prawn toast and some pickled veg. All good. Moved onto mackerel with daikon followed by pollock with samphire
Meat was lamb in three cuts with aubergine. Pre dessert followed by dessert of strawberries ,ice cream crumble and white chocolate tuile.
A fine finish to the meal
No criticism at all with good service and friendly staff. Good value as well. All in for just under a £100 each including two bottles of wine and tip.
Dining area is the only thing I would improve by having a new floor. Current one somewhat dingy.
It was wonderful! Would definitely go back again when we’re in town.
Brilliantly eclectic combinations that taste great, sensible portions (ie not too big) and excellent service.
Service was spotty, wine consistently served towards end of the course.
Delicious food and incredible service. Such a great restaurant. Make sure you get the chicken wings stuffed with bone marrow, and the chocolate and coffee dessert.
It was our anniversary and we got a hand signed cars congratulating us from all the staff. Such a lovely tough on arrival. We will be back for more that I am sure of. Thanks for our great waitress who made some really great recommendations (including some rather delicious Greek wine) and was super helpful and kind.
All in all a lovely evening with beautifully presented food
We had a delicious meal with caring service and excellent wine
Stunning meal. Amazing service lovely cosy place!
Outstanding food relying mostly on British staple ingredients with a good balance of European influences. Lovely service, patient with our party of adults and children.
Fantastic food every time we’ve been, and the service is always perfect - not too overbearing, but suitably attentive. The chicken skins are a must-order.
We had a truly fantastic experience at Portland and will certainly be back. The atmosphere was warm and unpretentious, the music was unobtrusive and enabled conversation, the service was attentive and welcoming and the food was outstanding. We had the tasting menu and each dish was beautifully presented and tasted even better. Furthermore, we both have complicated dietary requirements. We mentioned this to the restaurant when we made our booking and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Honestly, no restaurant has made such great efforts and it added a huge amount to our experience that we were able to fully trust that we could eat each dish. Overall, we enjoyed every aspect of our meal and highly recommend.
Excellent food - great service - can’t recommend enough.
Thank you to everyone at the Portland for an amazing evening.
We had the tasting menu paired with wines. Just an outstanding meal, course after course of taste and texture that delighted the palate and left us wanting to ask for each dish again!!!
We will be back and back and back again!
Thank you all!
Amazing as always, the food is fantastic. Also the bread is the best I've tried!
As usual an outstanding meal at Portland, always interesting flavour combinations, beautifully presented and delicious
Had wonderful evening & service was fantastic.
The general manager was serving us and did an amazing job at recommending a great selection of wines for every dish.
It was a nice touch that the chef himself served us our mains and added a very personal feel. Great place to dine .
Desert is also not a dish to miss !
Fantastic service from the waiters, and really attentive and classy approach to celebrating birthdays. The food is unlike anywhere else and very memorable.
Most definitely will return at some point.
We have visited quite a few times , and this is the first time that one of the dishes was not 100% . My meal was delicious having the pigeon and then the sea bass . My wife had the burrata which she loved but her lamb was tough . Even though she left most of it , no questions were asked which is unusual in this restaurant.
We love this restaurant because the food is normally superb and we love the informality .
We will go back again .
We had a wonderful meal at Portland today. The food was just right- special without being pretentious- and the ambience was very tasteful without being stuffy! Highly recommend !
Beautiful food and nice staff. Watch the bill though we were originally charged£301 instead of £186
Very nice! Good service for a social occasion. Only issue was that the air conditioning was not cold enough on the day.
Excellent cuisine, beautifully presented and Alix was delightful!
Amazing Michelin star food
Great value (£35 for a three course lunch menu is incredible!)
Portland is a firm favourite: food is focused on excellent British produce cooked in interesting ways, with a broad and eclectic wine list. The staff are welcoming and genuinely nice people. Marvellous grown up dinners are to be had here.
Great wine recommendations and the pithivier of duck and pigeon to share was delicious!
We've dined here a number of times while visiting London and always return when in town. We've done the tasting menu with wine pairings each time and each time around it has been great. Service is outstanding and friendly. The food is both local and fresh and beautifully prepared and plated. For this quality meal, the price is at a good price point. Be sure and book to get a seat, since it's a small place and can be pretty busy. Highly recommended!
Great ice cube delivery. Merci
Had a fabulous evening at Portland. It was my girlfriends birthday and our waitress and the manager went above and beyond to make sure we had a seamless and delightful meal. We had the tasting menu with the drink pairing and we were seriously blown away by the quality of the food, wine and service! We will be returning soon that's for sure, thank you team Portland!
Went to Portland for our first wedding anniversary. The whole tasting menu took about three hours and every single course was a new experience. We even got a sweet card from the team!
