Went with a party of 6 for my Mom's birthday. The service was top notch. Accommodating, friendly and knowledgable but not overbearing. The food was delicious. We had apps, salad and entrees and all of us loved everything. The mushroom crepe appetizer was everyone's favorite though. BYOB is very nice. Portions were plentiful and prices fair. Food was fresh and creative. Will definitely be back!

As other diners have said, the noise level is high. They would be wise to add acoustic tiles, area rugs, drapes to help with that. It was hard to hear at the opposite end of the table for six which was frustrating.

Prices are in line with the quality, fresh food, and full portions!! Mushroom crapes, iceberg lettuce hearts, and desert. I could have eaten just the crispy bread with fresh homemade spreads. Service was attentive, pleasant, and not too overbearing.

This restaurant does everything quite well. The menu is interesting, the food well prepared and served with attentive wait staff. We especially liked that they offered small portions on the standard menu. The place was quiet and well located in central Kennett Square. We had a very agreeable quiet dinner.

Our Innkeeper recommended Portabello's. The food was indeed wonderful, fresh ingredients, interesting use of them. The gazpacho was terrific, as was the stuffed portabello mushroom appetizer with crab and creme fraiche. We ordered flounder, cod and veal and all were very good. The hostess had told us when we called for a reservation (only a few hours before) that it was BYOB. Unfortunately, the wine available at the two places nearby was not very good, but the ABC store was too far away. It's a small restaurant and we gathered that on weekends reservations are a must. Our biggest and really only complaint was the noise level. With lots of hard surfaces and the unfortunate luck to be seated amidst three very large parties, we had to yell to carry on a conversation. The back of the restaurant was definitely quieter.

We had a great dinner at Portabello's in Kennett Square last night! It was my sister's birthday. They were incredibly welcoming and accommodating! The waitstaff was very attentive but not annoyingly so. The food was delicious. I think the gazpacho was the best I've ever had! Everyone loved their meals. Delicious desserts - especially the salted caramel cake. We had a delightful conversation with the chef at the end of the meal. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough!
