Had a decent dinner here, but I felt like I paid for the atmosphere which really is enjoyable and different. We were seated in the bar area which normally is not desirable, but I rather enjoyed the setting on a slower Sunday night. Food was decent, nothing more. Service was passable. Drinks were good and not skimpy. The size of... More

Five us went there for a birthday celebration on 3/11/17. It was admittedly a busy Saturday night but they were clearly understaffed and those there were far from competent. The servers basically slung the food on the table reaching over us. Then, when we had a small problem to fix, the staff got huffy and basically said that the manager... More

Stopped in with a friend for dinner. We were seated right away. The food was very good. I had the veal rollatini. The portion size was good and filling. Our server was very good. An overall good place to eat.

We drove all the way to Oakland ,N.J, despite the rain and the long distance, to enjoy a certain appetizer at the Portobello restaurant; the Portobello mushroom Milanese. The incredibly delectable appetizer that we were longing and dreaming about. We had it so many times but we kept going back for it, hostages to its unique, captivating taste This succulent... More

We came to Portobellos to celebrate Valentine's Day and to celebrate getting engaged here 20 years ago. If it wasn't for our server, I would rate this dinner as just plain awful. We had reservations to be seated in the bar area but they wanted to put us upstairs…..even though there were plenty of open tables. We were then seated... More

If you need gluten free dining, do NOT go to Portobello's in Oakland. The kitchen does not understand that gluten free means no wheat, barley, oats, or soy. The kitchen thinks as long as they don't put flour on your food it's gluten free. This is medically dangerous to people who need gluten free. Additionally, the kitchen got angry at... More

I've dined at Portobello many times over the years and always return. Most of the time we come here for dinner. The menu is extensive with many appetizers and entrees to choose from. Today, I met two friends for lunch. The lunch at Portobello is the best bargain around. There has to be over thirty options and most are eight... More

I have gone to this restaurant at least 15 + times in the last 10 years as I work close by and quite often, if we need a place for a group lunch we go here. In the past service was hit or miss as well as the food. I've had some decent food like the chef salads, and some... More
