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 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 ...
We were very impressed with Portland Restaurant. We had the tasting menu with paired wine and every course was fantastic. The service was efficient and attentive without being stuffy and the casual ambiance allowed us to fully enjoy the experience. I will definitely go back again for another special occasion (the price is reasonable for the quality of the restaurant but unfortunately not affordable on a regular basis!).
Excellent food and service - well balanced menu and interesting wines
Excellent meal. Had a great time with my family. Service was very attentive.
This is a very small restaurant with nowhere to hang out, so arrive on time, not early. Once seated though the food is great, from the snacks served to star to the coffee at the end the food was very good. The service was good too, waitress excellent and even the chef served us a course.
Great value food for a 1 Michelin star and proof you do not need a flash building and cocktail bar! I would go again this week!
Late dinner. Everything excellent: service, food, ambience. One of the nicest restaurants in London
Amazing food. We had the duck for two.
Great service. An overall great experience
Our favourite restaurant in London, and we have been to quite a few, where the quality of the ingredients and the chef’s skills are outstanding. Very reasonably priced for cooking of this standard.
One of my favourite restaurants in Fitzrovia. Patrick and the team are very friendly and helpful plus the food is fantastic. Definitely have all of the snacks and the duck for main.
This is the best restaurant I’ve been to this year. It was my bday and when we arrived the staff had all signed a card, and they also gave me a little gift when we left. We had the tasting menu which was exceptional. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to everyone!!
The best food - natural and fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked and artistically presented, lovely atmosphere. We all love this restaurant!
This was our first visit to this small charming restaurant. What a find! The menu was interesting with wonderfully innovative vegetarian options and the service excellent. It was not noisy so easy to talk.
We’ll definitely be back.
Great food (the tasting menu), considerate and knowledgeable staff. Will recommend the Portland to friends and colleagues.
Great restaurant, lovely food - good wheelchair access. highly recommend.
