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.
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.
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!
Ambience - Restaurant basically empty despite them being very difficult with me changing the time of the meal. Not busy enough ambience for the price/quality of the restaurant. Felt empty and echoey. Not much of a buzz.
Food - each meal was delicious. We were not prepared to fill that fill because each course on the tasting menu is so small... perhaps warning is needed because we ordered extra bread thinking it wasn't going to be enough. Each meal presented on beautiful different plates. However - not acceptable not to replace the meat options for vegetarians with an adequate substitute and charge the same price. 2 members of the party don't eat meat, so instead of getting 4 meat courses, there was just the absence of meat and more of the veg... that is not as expensive or as filling for the vegetarians. Price changes should be considered here or better vegetarian menus. Not what you expect in today's society !
Service - impeccable... but we were one of few tables there. Food came at the perfect pace - if anything it was fast. Lovely touch of giving us a cake and jam for breakfast the next day at the end - such a surprise and nice treat!
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 !
Cannot recommend the tasting menu enough. It's British and modern, full of surprise, dazzling, delicious. The place is quiet and cosy (you can actually have a conversation here). The staff is a bit in a rush, but helpful and kind. A fantastic place. A bit pricey of course but totally worth it.
Is was so mimuch great meal and staffs.
Stunning food, and great service! I went for my anniversary, and even got a lovey card from the staff! Go!
The food was amazing and so was the service, good ingredients cooked in such interesting ways. Service was amazing and felt so looked after, they did so much for my wife's birthday.
Inventive, personable, professional, comfortable.
Amazing food and impeccable service, as always.
Incredible food - every dish on the tasting menu was delicious and beautifully presented - and awesome service all evening.
Wonderful and knowledgeable staff. Great ambiance with impeccable food to match. Would highly recommend to fellow visitors to London.
Hit and miss dishes, which is a shame at this level. Only a couple of dishes of the 8 or so we tried (including the snacks, starters and mains) seemed worthy of the star this place has got. Others were distinctly average. For the so-called standout main of glazed duck, they put on a show of bringing and showing you a whole duck that will be carved and served to you. However, you are not actually served the impressive bird you are shown and what subsequently came out did not resemble what we were shown!
In terms of service, of the three that served us, one waiter was excellent, another fairly surly (she couldn't get away any quicker from the table once she'd served our course) and the last, apparently the owner, needs to up his soft skills - we were aware that the table had a two-hour limit, but the restaurant were at pains to emphasise this to us and didn't display any finesse in wrapping up at the end. We felt particularly harried and unwelcome after spending a considerable amount on food.
We've eaten in a number of Michelin starred establishments and sadly this will go down as a fairly underwhelming experience.
Great food, excellent standard, casual no pressure setting. Very good value. Hard to think of many centrally located restaurants this good at that price point! (Also check out their sister restaurant Clipstone another gem!)
Excellent food and atmosphere, only suggestion would be to dim the lights slightly more for dinner service.
Wonderful service and amazing value for the quality of food.
great food & outstanding service! what more can u ask? already planning another visit, this time bringing friends.
We had the lunch menu for our first visit , and thought it excellent value for the high quality of the food. We will definitely be back.
Our go to place in London. Excellent food with high quality ingredients, imaginative cooking.
Excellent, tasty and innovative food as usual, with great wines. Supremely helpful and attentive service, nothing too much trouble.
third or fourth visit to the restaurant, the Food was not exceptional on this occasion , maybe the menu needs refreshing ...
