The food was very good however the service was very slow. There were only 20 people in the restaurant and it took over 20 minutes to get a drink.

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.

This was our second trip to Portico, and it won't be our last. It was great from start to finish. We saw a deal for Tuesday nights where you get 1 each of an appetizer, salad, entrée, side and dessert. I figured the portions would be small because all of that was only 50 bucks. So, I ordered a couple extra things to be sure we had enough food. We were shocked at how much food came out, but we were also happy because the leftovers were great the next day. We had shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, chicken picatta, mashed potatoes, French fries and roasted cauliflower topped off with vanilla gelato for dessert. Everything was great. The shrimp were huge, the fries some of the best I have ever had, chicken was great, and the gelato reminded us of what we have had in Italy. The service was top notch and the surroundings are just right. it takes us 45 minutes to get here, so we wish it was a little closer, but we won't wait as long next time before going back. Well done.

I have been to Del Lago many times but this is my 1st time eating at Portico.. my husband & brother-in-law both ordered the Prime Rib which was the special and both of them were extremely disappointed. After we had ordered we overheard who I believe was the manager speaking with the next table over and apologizing to them for the not so good prime rib.. This would have been nice to know before we ordered.. I dont think I will be eating there in the future

Had dinner with a group of 10. We had dinner at three places in the area over the weekend 9/28 with friend and family from outside the area. As a group, this was our worst dinner for the weekend. Our serive was lousy and very slow. Our food was mediocre and our drinks were half filled. Appetizers was served in complete. The restaurant was pretty empty on Sunday night and service was horrible. Would not recommend.

The calamari was excellent. The veal Parmesan was enormous and I would’ve rather paid less for a smaller portion. The steak frites was cooked perfectly, however the fries were so salty I could hardly eat any. The service was poor!! I would have run circles around that guy! It took a long time to get our bill, and it took even longer to get cashed out. $10 for a side salad is ridiculous and I wouldn’t have paid it had I known. It was the most expensive meal I’ve had in the past 20 years and I would not pay it again.

With reservations they seated us at a table near the bathroom. We asked for a booth & they said they could not accommodate us. Everything is ala carte, disappointing. After ordering we waited 1 hour to get our meal with no explanation. The food was mediocre.
