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.
Great ice cube delivery. Merci
Had a fabulous evening at Portland. It was my girlfriends birthday and our waitress and the manager went above and beyond to make sure we had a seamless and delightful meal. We had the tasting menu with the drink pairing and we were seriously blown away by the quality of the food, wine and service! We will be returning soon that's for sure, thank you team Portland!
Went to Portland for our first wedding anniversary. The whole tasting menu took about three hours and every single course was a new experience. We even got a sweet card from the team!
Delicious! I would love to go again. Wines host have quite a mark up!
Very nice tasting food. A balanced flavour combination with pure products. Very friendly service and good explanation of the wines, which were also surprisingly and were adding something to the dishes. Nice open kitchen.
The only thing that bordered me a bit was the tempo in which the dishes followed up to each other, that was really a bit to fast.
Even if I asked to slow down a bit I finished my tasting menu within two hours.
All together, a fine experience and I can recommend this restaurant to food lovers!
Success for the future!
Great food - every course was delicious. Staff are lovely and friendly while still being professional. Really lovely ambiance as well.
Meal for two came to £150
Birthday celebration lunch with my mother. Excellent food albeit modest portions with lovely service. Surprisingly quiet for a Friday afternoon. Hopefully this is not a sign of lack of custom...
I come here fairly often. the last time caught the restaurant on form.
everything was delicious.
Great service, they placed a birthday card on our table, since it was my wife’s birthday. The food was one of the best of our trip.
Interesting food, well prepared. Friendly approachable service.
Best meal there ever
Fabulous and imaginative cuisine, very friendly and good service. Only 2 problems - noise level is too high and air conditioning too cold.
Very sorry to hear that Coline. We do try and maintain an equilibrium for all our guests, but can only apologise wholeheartedly if it affected your meal with us. I will make a note to always sit you in the quietest possible section in future. Thank you very much for your kind words on the food & service We look forward to seeing you again soon Patrick
We loved it, as always......it was a brilliant place to take an Australian friend.
I have been going to this restaurant since it opened.. although at the start it used to be incredibly difficult to get a table..
The food remains at the very high standard that it set for itself.. and quickly gained the reputation of being, since it opened..
Snacks are so good.. why don't more restaurants do this.. I guess they do in the form of amusebouches.. we had the chicken skin, the langoustine toasts and the gouda financier were delicious..
Starters kept the high standards and we had asparagus and chicken tartlet and some awesome gnochi with goats curd lard and courgettes.. I loved my main course.. smoked ricotta with some sort of pasta and the suckling pig was very tasty.. served in a rather innotive manner..
Desserts were a triumph with gariguette straweberries with a mascapone icecream.. just wonderful..
They have a tremendous selection of wines by the glass and i had a sicilian white.. a cracking St Romain.. which had beautiful rich nose and a fantastic long finish.. and I even snuck in an auslese to accompany the strawberries.
a special word to the service.. it was informative.. efficient.. friendly and fun..
thank goodness it's easier to get a table now.. FABULOUS
We both went for the tasting menu with wines. Overall probably one if the best tasting menus we have ever had. The food was excellent with the right balance between light but incredibly complex flavours.
Portion sizes all good.
The wines were an excellent pairing.
Good value for Michelin tasting in London.
Great food, amazing wine pairing and good service. Great night!
We tried a few months ago and thought the restaurent was great we revisted this week to see if it was as good as we thought it definitely was . service thats friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, a stunning taster menu, all courses good. Wine tasting menu was a real adventure.
I always enjoy my meals at Portland Restaurant on this occasion we tried the Pithivier of Duck & Pigeon, Hispi Cabbage, Morels & Truffle Jus and the Gloucester Old Spot Suckling Pig, Roasted Alliums & Baby Beetroots as mains. Thoroughly enjoyable! The starter to mention in particular is the Cured Mackerel, Baby Artichokes, Broad Beans & Old Winchester.
Dining here is always pleasurable, and this time was my first luncheon, a little more "manic" for the staff unlike dining at dinner.
First rate. Nothing amiss. Highly recommended.
Friendly, approachable restaurant (great for a date night!). The food and service were on point. Awesome wine list.. Happy days!
My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Portland. Fabulous food and the wine pairing was tasty and interesting. Great service. Will be visiting again!
Such a good restaurant. Such variety of flavours and a really calm and pleasing atmosphere. One of my faves in London.
From the moment we walked in we felt welcome and special. Staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. Bravo
Super helpful and accommodating
This is an excellent restaurant. Food - extraordinary. Considered, produced with exceptional craft. A rush of flavour taste and freshness. Service - Welcoming, intimate, thoughtful. Ambience - the place is simple, uncluttered, restrained. The idea being perhaps to let the food and service take centre stage. Tip - arrive earlier than your guest to give you time to drift through the beautifully presented wine list. Fascinating even if you don’t drink at lunchtimes. Have a lovely time if you go. My new office is 200m up the road. I couldn’t be happier. W
I’ve written really enthusiastically about Portland in the past, so this will be brief!
Another lovely evening - really a pleasure being here again. Very good food and such relaxing and pleasing service.
Thanks to all at Portland once more.
Outstanding dining experience. I dined at Portland with a friend who visited from abroad on a Monday night. All seats were filled, and the restaurant had a lively, but comfortable atmosphere.
I thought the tasting menu was great. Specifically, the "London stracciatella" on the menu was terrific.
My friend did not enjoy one of the dishes, but was given a beautiful alternative dish when she pointed this out to the waiter. The waiter was very attentive all night.
Overall, a great restaurant. I would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Wonderful restaurant without being fussy. Service was spot on. We tried several items on a la Carte menu from snacks (loved the carrot financiers and laungostine toast) starters (mackerel was delicious and presentation was gorgeous) and mains (sirloin lovely but overpowered by sauce- but delicious nonetheless). Desserts also lovely-pink peppercorn gelato was a standout. One really nice feature was great selection of wines by glass and carafe so pairings are made easy. Thanks also for lovely birthday card and cute recipe (with ingredients).
Al in all super meal and great experience. We’ll return often.
Truly one of the best meals I've had in New York or London in such a long time! Portland is outstanding!
The service was friendly and attentive, food excellent. A superb meal
Their Lunch Menu was excellent value for this class of restaurant. We had one Vegan which we gave virtually no notice about. They were offered choices from the Vegan Tasting menu - which I am told were good. (Did not look so tasty as the main menu!) Would definitely recommend but give notice of Vegans!
Beautiful, elegant and contemporary restaurant with neighbourhood feel and good staff
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!
