We stayed the night for a trip to Strong. We made reservations ahead of time. There was a snow storm. Place was pretty empty. Our server was Beth. She was AMAZING! She called us her kinda people. It was like we had known each other. She was on top of everything. The food was great. The filet was cooked perfectly. I’d have to say it was better then Ruth’s Chris. Seasoning phenomenal. Only thing I would’ve changed was the woman that sat us at our table. No friendly welcome. Not a smile. Not even sure if she looked up from her stand. I initiated the greeting. Would return again for sure.

Our dinner was...okay. I was expecting the food to be better. Portion size was good and the bread was very yummy. Our server was okay but I did see another server’s interaction with his tables and his demeanor and attention to his tables were what I would expect for this type of restaurant. Our server only spoke to my husband at the start of our dinner. Guess she didn’t realize I was paying since it was my husband’s birthday... not that it should have mattered. We will probably give Portico another try and hope it would meet our expectations.

It’s a lovely restaurant. The food was good but the service was casual. Staff were walking around talking loudly about personal stuff. 2 were actually chasing each other around the restaurant as there weren’t many tables left just three they thought the place was empty and apologized. The food came out very quickly and before we were ready for it. We were sharing a couple apps and entrees and new plates were never offered. We had to pour our own wine and dessert menus were dropped while we were still eating our dinner. Very uncool. For a beautiful setting, expensive meal and Fabios reputation I would expect better. A floor manager was visible as well.

Our waitress was very attentive and provided excellent customer service. The food was reasonably priced and had good portions for the price. The food was delicious from the bread to our appetizer to our entrees. The restaurant was clean and all staff very pleasant. I will surely be back and will recommend.

The food was extremely salty! We ordered soup, salad, sides, two entrees and everything tasted terrible because of the extreme salt. Spoke with manager who was apologetic but had no answers. Friends told us they visited 4 days earlier and had a terrible meal. We asked what was the issue, and to our surprise, they said their meal was ruined by so much salt on everything. Considering the Portico is a high end restaurant, the meal was inedible and very disappointing. This was our first time at the portico for dinner. I am a Massimo player and have been coming to del Lago for over a year and a half. We like everything there, which also made this experience such a let down. We were looking forward to this meal to celebrate my husbands birthday. Can’t figure out why the chef will not change his ways !

We started our evening with a couple of house specialty drinks at the bar. They were fantastic. We were promptly seated when ready. The service was great and the food (center cut fillets) were cooked to perfection and had great flavor. They are a steakhouse and they certainly know how to do steaks right! Kudos also to the great wait staff!

Food is usually quite good at Portico. Two of our party had pork chops which looked very good and they indicated that they were. My spouse and I had 10oz Center Cut Beef Tenderloin For Two which was excellent!! Tender, juicy, cooked as ordered. We also ordered a half portion of Orecchiette with Crab as the side. My spouse loved it (as she did last time!).

Two of our party got concord grape sorbet for dessert, of which they gave me a taste. It was delicious!!

Our server was just so-so. He did most things "right" but there was just something that said "not quite as it should be_. At the outset we explained we wanted two checks -- at the end, that did not happen. Each of us who ordered wine had to repeat what we wanted. Failed to clear finished plates in a timely fashion and one set not at all.

Out of the hotel, spa, and restaurant, the service at the restaurant was the only low point. We had to have another waiter help us multiple times during our evening, and we are a low maintenance group. From bread to wine and everything in between that our server didn't bring us.....I honestly do not know where she went that evening. Who doesn't bring the wine???

Order the gnocchi. They where very doughy and not good at all however the sauce was good. Also ordered a glass of wine that never came. Had to remind the waitress and then it did come with no charge. At the end of the meal we waited about 10 minutes or more before we got up and had to go to the counter to pay our bill very dissatisfied we had to be somewhere.

Absolutely recommend! I enjoy going to del Lago frequently and admittedly there's not a lot of dining choices. BUT THANKFULLY Portico is amazing so I really don't need anything else! Their filet is melt in your mouth and so much flavor that I don't even need their sauces (which are good!) The creamed spinach is amazing and their wine selection is superb!! A little expensive, but you get what you pay for. They have specials, too so I always go to their website to see. I recommend Portico highly!

The food and atmosphere is awesome. We brought in our bottle of wine and was told there was a cork fee. We said that was fine and was never told how much. We were very surprised to find out they charge 25.00 cork fee. That is outrageous!

My steak was undercooked and I didn't receive the correct accompaniments. I sat and watched my wife eat. When she finished my food came out and she got to watch me eat. The serving staff disappeared and trying to get some pepper for my soup was impossible. The staff need proper training and don't have them sit you on the left side of the restaurant unless you are prepared to have people screaming while watching Sunday night football. 2 thumbs down.

With the exhorbitent prices that Portico gets for food and drinks, it would've been nice if the dining tables weren't in the open and close to each other. The service was painfully slow and as hard as Portico tried to be an upscale restaurant, the noise was still that of a casino. There was no dress code to speak of, which didn't justify the prices. With Portico's prices, the dining experience should've been more personal and intimate. For all of the negatives at Portico, we should've dined at the buffet where one expects a loud noise level, under-dressed patrons and no privacy.

The restaurant is beautiful and it has an ambiance that would make you want to stay for a while, however, the food did not match the aforementioned.

The Service: When we first arrived the attendant at the front told us it would be about a 5 minute wait for our table, as they were running right on time. When we realized it was 4 minutes pass the time of our reservation a person from our party went over to ask how much longer and the attendant stated the she told us to come over when it reached 6:00pm (which was dishonest and upsetting).

Once we were seated, Haley was our server and she was great, very attentive.

The Food:

Pros: The lobster bisque was some of the best I have ever had. "The Smoky the Pear" cocktail was great.

Cons: The chicken picatta, lacked flavor, needed more salt added during the cooking process. The sea bass also lacked seasoning, while the fish was perfectly cooked, it too lacked seasoning and flavor(and for $45 the flavor should have been unique and memorable making the customer want to return).
The crab orecchiette pasta also lacked flavor, it had way too much lemon and not enough lump crab.
We had the chocolate cake and the crème brulee for dessert and those were also underwhelming.

To sum it up, if I were to return or recommend Portico to a friend, I tell them not to go hungry and go for drinks.

We dined at Portico on Saturday and found it to be an okay experience but nothing to rush back for. Our server, Dillon, was excellent and very attentive. The food on the other hand came out cold. It is pricey and we had anticipated everything to be top notch but left a bit disappointed.
