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.
if there were options beyond five stars, i would tick the highest one possible. everything from the food to the service/sociability of the staff — the overall experience was delightful. i had just mentioned in passing to one of the staff that it was our anniversary and upon getting our bill, they brought dessert morsels and a beautiful personalised card signed by the entire staff. truly a memorable night.
Amazing food with staff who clearly care about the customers.
grear , it was a best experience of london dinnig for me.
The Food was lovely and fresh with clean flavours, The Service was very friendly and helpful all served in a relaxing and calm atmosphere.
Excellent tasting menu and wine pairing. Helpful yet unobtrusive service.
My son took me here for my birthday lunch. He is a chef and highly rated the food which I loved. Great staff, setting and food. We had 3 courses and nibbles all of the highest standard, wine was excellent and the staff were very helpful and informative without being overbearing. Enjoy.
Fantastic evening, food was exquisite, staff delightful and a lovely evening. Would definitely come again.
Bright fun restaurant and interesting menu. Food good on the whole but too fussy mixing too many
flavours and grouse (part of the reason for going was for the the game) was not cooked properly,
which was disappointing.
My girlfriend and I went for her 30th birthday. I had popped a note on the OpenTable booking to mention it was her birthday, so when we arrive there was a card waiting for her. The birthday card had been signed by the whole team and was a lovely start to a great evening.
We had the tasting menu, which was varied, delicious and full of inventive presentations of some beautiful core ingredients. I must say the smoked carrot tartar was just stunning.
I really got the impression that the staff all knew the menu and had insight into the wine list and menu.
The ambience and design is definitely a welcome less formal presentation; relaxed elegance. Perfect for a celebration.
To further the birthday celebration, the chocolates had a candle in and at the end of the meal the birthday girl was given a little present to go home with (a recipe and the ingredients for lavender shortbread).
For a tasing menu, I actually think the price was very reasonable. This is not a cheap evening, but so worth choosing for those times when you want to treat yourself or celebrate.
Lovely staff and brilliantly creative food made a perfect celebratory lunch
The creative and interesting but absolutely delicious Tasting Menu is the focus of this restaurant. You must go here to eat and drink. Staff are knowledgeable and personable but busy as well.
Good food & friendly service. Our waitress was excellent with her manners and explained about food and wine.
Superb tasting menu and wine pairing. Excellent friendly but non intrusive service.
I took my mum here for her Birthday last week and we had the greatest time. We were treated so kindly, the staff all signed a birthday card for her and gave her a little gift, it was really touching. The food was INCREDIBLE as was the wine. Can't speak highly enough about the whole experience. Thanks again! Hannah
Good food experience. Dishes are very finely prepared and with original selection. The restaurant itself is pretty basic though but the food was good. A little bit over priced for the experience I would say, but worth checking it out!
We've dined here several times on visits to London and each time it has been wonderful. Each time, we've done the tasting menu and let the restaurant pair the wines for us, which has worked out great. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is excellent, wine pairings are well considered, and in general it's a great place for a meal. Be aware that it can get busy some nights, so reservations are highly recommended. We would highly recommend Portland.
Great food as always - classic like Longhorn Beef and crispy chicken skins are always great. Always something knew too......
Impeccable service and incredible food with single ingredients and techniques
Really great food, fantastic service and lovely atmosphere. Massive bonus that it’s neither stuffy or pretentious.
excellentl from start to finish on every level , will go again ( & again )
Just great. The best service. Wonderful food
Outstanding food. Wonderful seasonal combinations. Great textures and perfect seasoning. Beautiful presentation. Good value for money. Good service.
Make sure you order some snacks- we had the fried chicken skin and a wonderful black steamed squid bun which were both delectable, melt in the mouth delicious.
Will be back.
Had dinner here. Great tasting menu and good wine. Very exciting food.
Overpriced. Food was good but most of it was veggies (which were of good quality but just veggies, in the end...not really surprising) and portions ridiculously tiny. I have spent 200£ in other London restaurants but eating oysters, tuna, steak tartar...not carrots, beetroots and cucumber. Service was average, not rude but not super friendly either; we ordered a couple of drinks before the tasting menu and they served the menu while we were having the cocktails. Seemed they were in a hurry all the time. We needed to ask for a wine cooler. The wine list was decent but service didn’t provide any comment or recommendation, whice one would expect in such a restaurant. Disappointing.
The lunch deal is the best value Michelin Star meal in London. Flawless food, presentation and service. Delicious wine. thoughtful little birthday card and desert where a nice touch
Our fourth (?) visit, and another really enjoyable evening. We brought two friends- new to Portland- and they were most impressed.
The cooking is not fussy, but there are innovative things that give the taste buds tantalising flavours and varying textures.
Every dish was enjoyed and the French sparkling wine was pleasingly different and inexpensive. Perhaps the NZ Pinot disappointed marginally considering its price.
But not worth cavilling about this.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening and thank you to Portland.

Food was incredible - such a variety of different tastes and textures, and just the right amount.
Service was outstanding.
Great attention to detail, delicious food, and exceptional service
first time at Portland but it won't be the last. Really enjoyed our lunch. Excellent food, friendly, efficient service but not at all stuffy. Straciatella (how do you spell that?) starter was sensational. Lamb delicious. Nicely curated wine list at probably not the cheapest but still reasonable prices with a separate fancy wine list, which is a nice idea. We enjoyed a well-chosen cotes du rhone, well described on the list. My only regret was getting glasses of English sparkling wine, which I thought was expensive for what it was, but I guess that is a matter of personal taste.
Altogether, thoroughly recommended.
We had the tasting menu. Excellent value in a cosy setting. Went their for a birthday dinner and the staff went above and beyond (card, candle on dessert, DIY shortbread to takeaway). Highly recommended
Great food in a relaxed environment. I don't think we had a weak dish or issue at all. Thoroughly recommended.
Wonderful meal. I would expect to pay a lot more for this standard of cooking. Amazing flavours, nice little touches of additional bites and treats. Would recommend.
Good food, the bread was notably good. Interesting wine list though relatively expnsive wines. Food well prepared and service was nice! Just a good quality restaurant with some interesting choices.
The tasting menu is a must - absolutely wonderful dinner.
Fabulous restaurant. Very vegan friendly. Great wine pairing.
Excellent meal and service from the staff at the restaurant. Special mention for Patrick who was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine selection.
Great meal with attentive service. Enjoy being able to see the kitchen in action. Enjoyable Greek wine
lovely dinner for two. Food very good and good wine list
