Fantastic food and service! First time at this restaurant and will definitely be back. I had an amazing omelette (prosciutto, figs and brie – YUM!) with side salad. All 5 in our party enjoyed their meals and the service was EXCELLENT.

Great experience, and will return when we are in Toronto again. Rene was a real joy – says at 20 years there he is one of the newer servers ! Nice to see a successful family run restaurant in the downtown core. Thanks, Richard

We shared the sweet potato gnocchi and the pad thai and both were incredibly tasty. Our server was lovely and even offered to change the glass of wine I ordered when she pointed out there was something on the menu that I would prefer more.

Portico is a relatively quiet restaurant in a hotel, downtown. The host and server were welcoming and pleasant. My husband and I were there for an early, pre-theatre dinner, so we only ordered entrees. The server, drinks and food arrived without any big delays and our meals were tasty, the service very good. We enjoyed that we were able to have a conversation without yelling over loud music, like most of the more upscale restaurants downtown. I’d recommend it for dinner with a friend, spouse or business meal, and especially pre-theatre or show.

We were so pleased with our visit to Portico, and would highly recommend to anybody who is looking for a well cooked, flavourful dinner and a respite from the hustle and bustle in the city. Steps from the Elgin Theatre, we were well taken care of by courteous and extremely professional staff. To top it off, our meals were wonderful! Pasta sauces were well done and nicely balanced for flavour, as was the risotto. The price was very reasonable. Pay a visit! You won’t be disappointed!

The last time I was at Portico’s was in the mid-2000s. I had good memories eating there when I worked in the area -a variety of different choices on the menu, healthy and delicious. To my surprise it continues to be. We enjoyed ourselves and ate everything off of our plates. Will definitely would go back more often!

The service was good our server Nikita was very attentive. The food was also good and the portion was good although in our experience the cut of steak we got was rather tough and had a lot of sinew which spoiled the main course. The noise level was due to a guest on the bar lounge side that kept talking in a loud voice for the entire dinner, nobody seemed to tell the person to lower their voice. The main host and a male server were also talking about other guest in a loud manner which as a guest I would not want to hear because it made us think that when we leave they’ll be gossiping about how we were as guests.
