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.
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.
What a lovely surprise lunch - the set course is really good value for this level of cooking. I think that anything on their menu would be superbly cooked. Really lovely lunch!
Always lovely to eat at the Portland restaurant. Amuse bouche and a trio of mini desserts with the bill is always a delicious and very welcome touch.
The snacks to begin with were probably the highlight of the meal - the Kernow spider crab bun - who knew bread could be so soft?! Also the Carrot & hazelnut financier with Cornish Gouda cheese was delicious - melt in the mouth.
The tastiest part of the mains were surprisingly the cornish greens - very generous portion size and made side vegetables taste like a delicious main meal!
Look forward to our next visit.
Spectacularly delicious with consistent top quality (4th time there), top service, fantastic wines and relaxed cozy atmosphere
Excellent food and service, couldn't fault them in any way.
Gdybym miał opisać restaurację, która sam bym otwierał, to właśnie w tym stylu, z taką atmosferą i świetnym jedzeniem. Miał być lunch, ale Chef przygotował dla nas degustację- niespodziankę.
Było pysznie- nie mogę doczekać się kolejnej wizyty !
Excellent and innovative as always, efficient and pleasant staff and interesting wine list
The service was amazing. We came for an anniversary and it was so special! Really lovely night out. The food was delicious with some incredible vegetarian options. The wine list is more than reasonable. Thank you for making such a lovely experience.
Great vibe. Lovely modern space with retro g-plan chairs. Not starchy, excellent service in casual clothes. Food magnificent. One of the best. Not cheap but definitely worth it for a special occasion.
Excellent food and services.
The whole meal was wonderful and really relaxing ambience. Service was great! I ordered tasting menu, and I enjoyed crab bun and venison so much!!!! Especially venison, the meet was juicy and tender. The waiter and waitress introduced me every course I ordered. They were really friendly, nice and professional.
I ordered wine as well. Unfortunately I carelessly broke one wine glass....They were so nice and cared about me and cleaned the mass immediately.
Absolutely worth the value and will visit again.
PS: the waiter placed a shelf of books in front of me before having meal Hahahaha. So cute and I did read some pages. They were all about food hahaha thanx ;)
Always fabulous from the greeting by Patrick to the food and wine. The mallard and pigeon pithivier was fantastic. Well recommended.
We had a wonderful time at Portland. The atmosphere was intimate and jolly. We took the tasting menu, lost the count for the number of plates brought to us, we were definitely entertained!
Awesome food and we really enjoyed it !
