For me, our favorite restaurant in Quebec City. You must go! You need to reserve. We went for new eve and was full and amazing environment. Food is unbelievable delicious! Try Mashrooms risotto. Incredible!

Rude greeting, terrible customer service! We walked in at 4pm to book a table for 7.30pm and were told they don't take reservations, to just turn up later..we did exactly that to be greeted by a very rude young lady, saying did we have a...'reservation' to which we replied with above statement, and she said 'tough' we are fully booked and you need to reserve, come back another night...Foxtrot Oscar was our reply..AVOIDMore

I went there for a last minute business dinner on the recommendation of a colleague. What a beautiful find! The food was fantastic, as was the service and atmosphere. It will be added to my list of restaurants to re-visit while in Quebec City.

It's a bit crowded in the restaurant, but the food is more than worth it. I also loved the use of a light-up box on your table to get your server's attention. It is great to not be constantly interrupted but still have an easy...way to service when you need it. Our waiter was great, service was impressively fast considering how busy it was, and it's in a great location!More

Went with two friends who were very happy with their meals. I had the chicken fettuccine the fettuccine and sauce were delicious but the chicken tasted like processed food, tasteless. The Caesar salad and the garlic toast were my favourite part of the meal. Pina...Colada was yummy.More

Food and cocktails excellent. Service a little slow but can be excused on account of Covid rules (surely lack of personnel) . Expansive but was expected by us. We will recommend.

I ate at this restaurant about 3 years ago and the Linguine Noires Aux Fruits de Mar left such an impression on me I just searched for the restaurant name. Yes, 3 years later. The dish ingredients are simple, but the flavor is fantastic! If...I ever return to the city, I will be coming back for more.More

We dined at Portofino on New Years weekend. The city was crowded as were all of the restaurants. Our concierge called and secured a table for 4. When we arrived, we were placed in a high traffic are. The Maiore d could not have been...more accommodating and gave us a better table before our drinks arrived. Our group ordered a variety of dishes and all were good or great. The spinach salad and Cesar salads were both excellent.More

My sister and I came to Quebec City for a week celebrating our 50th Birthday. So far we encountered wonderful people! We were excited to try Portofino, seeing it was a few blocks from where we rented our apartment. Unfortunately, before we could even try...the restaurant, we were rudely handled by a girl out front of restaurant to take our name. Arrogant, rude and too young to even have this attitude... we will never enter this establishment again, nor will we ever refer it to friends, family or business associates in the future.More
