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
What Insiders Are Saying
Portland is a great restaurant in the vein of so many in London that focus on simple ingredients and offer a reasonably priced tasting menu.
Friendly, approachable restaurant (great for a date night!). The food and service were on point. Awesome wine list.. Happy days!
My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Portland. Fabulous food and the wine pairing was tasty and interesting. Great service. Will be visiting again!
Such a good restaurant. Such variety of flavours and a really calm and pleasing atmosphere. One of my faves in London.
From the moment we walked in we felt welcome and special. Staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. Bravo
Super helpful and accommodating
This is an excellent restaurant. Food - extraordinary. Considered, produced with exceptional craft. A rush of flavour taste and freshness. Service - Welcoming, intimate, thoughtful. Ambience - the place is simple, uncluttered, restrained. The idea being perhaps to let the food and service take centre stage. Tip - arrive earlier than your guest to give you time to drift through the beautifully presented wine list. Fascinating even if you don’t drink at lunchtimes. Have a lovely time if you go. My new office is 200m up the road. I couldn’t be happier. W
I’ve written really enthusiastically about Portland in the past, so this will be brief!
Another lovely evening - really a pleasure being here again. Very good food and such relaxing and pleasing service.
Thanks to all at Portland once more.
Outstanding dining experience. I dined at Portland with a friend who visited from abroad on a Monday night. All seats were filled, and the restaurant had a lively, but comfortable atmosphere.
I thought the tasting menu was great. Specifically, the "London stracciatella" on the menu was terrific.
My friend did not enjoy one of the dishes, but was given a beautiful alternative dish when she pointed this out to the waiter. The waiter was very attentive all night.
Overall, a great restaurant. I would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Wonderful restaurant without being fussy. Service was spot on. We tried several items on a la Carte menu from snacks (loved the carrot financiers and laungostine toast) starters (mackerel was delicious and presentation was gorgeous) and mains (sirloin lovely but overpowered by sauce- but delicious nonetheless). Desserts also lovely-pink peppercorn gelato was a standout. One really nice feature was great selection of wines by glass and carafe so pairings are made easy. Thanks also for lovely birthday card and cute recipe (with ingredients).
Al in all super meal and great experience. We’ll return often.
Truly one of the best meals I've had in New York or London in such a long time! Portland is outstanding!
The service was friendly and attentive, food excellent. A superb meal
Their Lunch Menu was excellent value for this class of restaurant. We had one Vegan which we gave virtually no notice about. They were offered choices from the Vegan Tasting menu - which I am told were good. (Did not look so tasty as the main menu!) Would definitely recommend but give notice of Vegans!
Beautiful, elegant and contemporary restaurant with neighbourhood feel and good staff
Went with my father for an early Easter dinner and remained in awe of the quick and professional staff, great food and Michelin restaurant worthy presentation. Definitely a must in Fitzrovia.
Every dish we had was incredible
It’s a balance of all flavors in one dish. It may be salty or plain if you eat each ingredient separate. But when combine, it’s phenomenal!!! Hope this one will earn one extra Michelin Star soon!
Food was absolutely delicious and attention to detail was phenomenal. It is a small, understated and reasonably priced restaurant with outstanding, friendly service and beautiful food. I dined at lunch time to celebrate an upcoming birthday and the hugely attentive waiter noticed the birthday card and brought me a dessert, appropriately dressed with a pretty candle. On leaving, the restaurant gave me a beautifully presented gift box consisting of a house recipe for shortbread with the dry ingredients. It was most unexpected but says it all. An absolute gem.
Exceptional. Service is attentive, but not intrusive. My husband and I had one of the best meals of our lives. You can taste every component of dish. The vegetables really blew us away with a popping freshness. The pithivier was so good we couldn't stop talking about it. Thank you!
main is very sweet and delicious food. but the dessert a little bit bad.
It was my husband's birthday and the Portland tasting menu was perfect. Service is attentive yet relaxed and the food was delicious. They even gave him a lavender biscuit mix to make at home for a birthday present!
Great food, great service, great restaurant.
As always the guys and girls at the Portland put on a special evening
It’s my favourite spot for a business lunch and the evening menu was superb
The tasting menu was the perfect choice to get a bite of all the delicious food they make. Everything was perfectly well presented on arrival by the waitresses and after enjoying every bite my taste buns couldn't complain at all. The proportions every course were well thought through to make sure the overall amount of food was in line with normal dinners.
Giles Coren called this the perfect restaurant he was right!
Food was good but the service and hospitality were lacking.
We went for lunch with friends and three children but there was nothing in the menu or any attempt to cater for them.
Staff also seemed vacant and disinterested in making it a fine dining experience.
From the moment you walk in the door there is a warm welcome. This was our second visit and we were remembered from the first. The service was perfect, attentive without being intrusive. The food was beautiful. We had the tasting menu. The variety of texture, colours and flavours amazing. The wine pairings well chosen and the wines themselves eclectic and interesting. A great restaurant and as a result a wonderful evening.
Food, service and wine was amazing.
Confident and knowledgable staff who made great recommendation. Enjoyed every second in my dining experience at The Portland
Overall experience was excellent. We thought we had booked for 7:00 but had actually booked for 9:00PM. We sat at the counter for first part of dinner and when a table opened, moved there to finish dinner. Staff could not have been more accommodating and both food and wine were great. I'll definitely return.
Wow. Stunning tasting menu, are a broad variety of very seasonal products with specific provenance, each masterfully prepared. The staff is young, enthusiastic and unpretentious, the latter of which can also describe the wine list. Some highlights were pollock poached in a butter topped with squid ink sauce, and charred eel served under thinly sliced picked root veg. Even the petit fours were marvellous - a chocolate truffle with rosemary oil run through it. Hugely enjoyable, I recommend it strongly
Exquisite food, gorgeous service.
Great Michelin starred food in an in pretentious ,relaxed ,and friendly atmosphere . Well trained , knowledgeable team .
Excellent service and food.
I went with two other friends and we all thought it was a fantastic restaurant overall. The service was impeccable, the staff were very polite and attentative to our needs. The food was of excellent quality and there was a good choice of wines available on the wine list. Very strong experience and would highly recommend to others.
I went to Portland to celebrate my 21st birthday and was not disappointed. The staff were so attentive and went the extra mile to give you a top dining experience. The food was absolutely incredible and was so creative. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.
We very much enjoyed the food. We had booked this for s birthday celebration. The service whilst polite was not friendly and it was also very rushed. We ordered the tasting menu and flight of wines. Before we could finish one course or glass the next would be along.
For this amount of money I would expect more personalised service.
Amazing to have blood orange sorbet with rosemary infused cream.....worth it for just one spoonful.
The Portland team really looked after us as they knew it was a birthday. Really nice young staff with proper old fashioned manners. Wonderful.
Amazing food at Portland, can't fault it! Will be sure to visit more frequently 👌🏽😀
Patrick was a great waiter, the food was all amazing!
Fantastic tasting menu as always.
Great flavours, subtle touches, nice surprises
and all in just the right sized portions.
It was casual yet contemporary. The service is incredible. But the food was not what expected as michelin won a few years ago. Food was plain, not so special but I could see the effort and concept. Maybe I expected too much of NOMA influenced meal on this restaurant but why not.
