After all the other good reviews telling the world what yummy treats and food this restaurant/bakery has, this one will be overkill. Obviously, we loved the place. The atmosphere is light and airy and people are enjoying their food and the others they are with. The food is tremendous. The selection makes it hard to choose but we 2 finally chose 4 treats to share. We thought the line might last a while but it went fast.
We had the cheese ball, a guava cheese Danish, a cinnamon roll and something else. All were good. I only wish we lived in the area so we could go more often. But we live in our motor home and are traveling on. Shucks.
One more thing - the prices are so reasonable. 2 cups of coffee and 4 treats were about $12.00. Where else could you find such goodness for so cheap? Ahhh, at the other Portos locations.

We had a group of six for dinner. The menu looked appealing. The food was not quite up to the menu. The chicken with the waffles was heavily breaded and not very good. The Jambalaya was pedestrian at best. Overall we left unimpressed. They make a very good shake though.

Saw a movie and we were able to walk right over to this place which was great. We were immediately greeted and seated. First I'm going to talk about the food...
They brought warm - key word here - WARM courtesy bread to the table which was very good along with a diced tomato topping that was very yummy. We then received the calamari which was superb. I couldn't inhale it fast enough. It came out quickly, hot, the batter was light, crunchy and not too oily. The towel the calamari was on seemed to soak up some of the excess as well as we made our way through it. Then came our meals - I had the bolognese and my husband the gnocchi with pesto. Besides mine being a bit watery the flavors were great! They make their pasta in house which of course adds to the freshness and overall taste of the dish. My husband enjoyed his although I felt it was missing something to give it that 'something special.' We both ate a lot but wound up taking a snack size amount home so we could eat dessert. For dessert we had their in house made tiramisu. It was good! Was it great? No - it was a bit too creamy and lacked that punch of liquor/coffee flavors. But we had no problem gobbling it right up...don't get me wrong.
Now for ambiance. That place can use a major upgrade. From the cheesy decorations and horrible lighting to the horribly placed counter that seemed to serve no purpose to the eye sores everywhere (storage rack - exposed soda machine - etc.) I could ramble off a handful of interior updates they could make that would make the space MUCH more inviting/comfortable.
Service - we had a great server but I was disappointed we were not given the specials of the day. We are a married couple in our 30's...not sure if that had anything to do with it but the older group of 4 next to us DID get a rundown of the day's specials. Coincidence? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Also, I had to ask for a refill on my water which, having been a server for many years in my youth, is a no no.
If the food hadn't been so good I'd probably rate the place a 3 instead.

Our New York Style bagels are baked with only the freshest ingredients. No additives, fillers, or preservatives are used in any of our products. At Goldstein's Bagel Bakery we kettle cook and bake our bagels the old fashioned way to ensure a perfect New York Style bagel every time. Our bagels contain only flour, yeast, malt, salt and water. Compare our bagels to any other and we guarantee you'll love them.
A little time before the am movie and a little hungry and we finally had a reason to try Goldstein's. What a great surprise. Not just bagels but sandwiches we can't wait to try on our next visit. Now we plan to go earlier to the movies just to try more of their menu.

Stopped by for a mid-week lunch and was very pleased with the food and the service. The hostess and the wait staff were very helpful and attentive.
I ordered the filet mignon open-faced sandwich which includes two sides. Mine were the cole slaw and onion rings. Both were great. The filet mignon was prepared medium which was a beautiful shade of pink. A great lunch and a great deal.

Love this restaurant. happened to be there on a Saturday evening. Nice relaxing atmosphere. While we were waiting for our table my husband and I found a spot in the bar area. the bartender was friendly and had the best smile, her name was Kathryn Keys. While we sat enjoying our drinks. We noticed how personable Kathryn was with the customers, she treated all of them with great customer service.
After we sat down at our table we were pleasantly surprised that there was live music performed while we were eating. The music was very soft and entertaining. I would recommend the New Moon to anyone that is visiting the area.

We are a fun, family-friendly Mexican restaurant where good food and good drinks is our business!
The location has ample parking. The menu is extensive. Tried the fajitas, guacamole and drinks. Fajitas were OK - nothing great. The guacamole is made fresh at your table. Service can certainly be improved. Place feels and looks a bit dated.

this definitely needs to be added to Trip Advisor. Exceptionally good tea room - in business for 8 years.
This place is adorable and the service was so great. Our group ordered the Queen's Tea as well as an assortment of salads and sandwiches from the menu and everything was excellent. This place had a wonderful atmosphere. Very quaint and just perfect for a girl's get together. Though we didn't sit there, there is also a beautiful covered patio out back. Lovely experience, thank you!

Ate at Portobello's with my family in March 2018, and we all enjoyed our meal.
The restaurant had a traditional Italian decor. The service was excellent, very friendly and attentive.
The food was really good. We ordered chicken parmesan, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and a child's dish. All of the food was delicious, the quality was fresh, and the portion size was large.
The price was reasonable for the amount of food and experience. I would eat here again, and recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.

Relaxed place, great menu, great food, reasonable prices and vaguely western decor. The service was fast and friendly and the milieu really happy. Children and families are very welcome. Not a dress-up place; jeans are perfect. Also, tables have a lot of space around them, so privacy as we eat was reasonable.
