Portland opened in 2015 and received a Michelin star the same year - which we have retained to this day. We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our head chef Theo Clench and his team.

We offer a la carte and also a Tasting Menu at lunch and dinner.

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our main wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists. Our Single Bottle List contains around 100 bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers.

Apart from the main restaurant, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing you might be looking for as we take our steps back into eating and drinking with the people we love…We are looking forward to welcoming you at Portland soon!

Such a shame
Restaurant was too busy , too many people waiting for tables.Staff keen to move diners along to get the next seating . Have dined there before under restrictions and it was calm and excellent .Very secure and relaxing . Not this time .Love the food but not sure we will go again in this climate.

The food at Portland was excellent as was the service throughout!
From the friendly front of house to the head chef all the staff were warm and welcoming helping set a more casual dinning atmosphere despite the fine dining menu
You will not be disappointed with any of the dishes on the menu!

With Covid, staff are all wearing masks and very careful so it was great. Food was amazing and if you can dine early you get a discount as well

Everything executed to a very standard. A set lunch here is outstanding value in these straitened times. Great wine list, with prices to suit every wallet, and great options by the glass. Have the pain perdu dessert. To die for.

Gabor and Rob looked after us very well, the service is both excellent and welcoming.

I came with the intention of trying something different, but as always I fell for the Roast Duck.

Can't recommend Portland enough!

Food and service were superb. They made a huge effort to make sure our birthday celebration meal was as special as it could have been.

The food was all exceptional and the wine was amazing. All of it is very reasonably priced given the quality. The atmosphere was great too, the waiting staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The open kitchen was a nice addition where you could interact with the chef and his team, all of whom were friendly.

It was a really great evening and we would highly recommend eating here.

Moved from NYC last year (which has an incredible restaurant scene) - Portland is by far my favorite restaurant in London and could dine here a million times over. You can order any item off the menu knowing without a doubt it will be delicious. Ambiance is lovely for a small intimate dinner or date. All the staff is gracious and knowledgeable (Lucy who is one of the waitresses is the best and so sweet!)

We had such a fantastic experience at Portland, both the food and staff were incredible. I took my boyfriend here for his 30th birthday and they had a card waiting for him on arrival and a little gift box after we had our meal. Will definitely be returning. Thank you!
