Lovely lunch with a friend. Great views and atmosphere with excellent food and service.
It was a delightful brunch with great food, service and a spectacular view. Given we were a large party, we appreciated the accommodations made by the staff as people switched seats between two tables to mix and mingle. And the poached eggs were awesome!
Exceptional food and well worth the rice. Great view also. Will go back as often as we come to London.
Very enjoyable meal. Great food in a fantastic setting.
Excellent service but rather slow to serve hungry children children’s menu was good. Our waiter was especially kind and helpful
Very special afternoon tea, made even better by delicious rhubarb Bellinis
Waitress was very friendly and engaging
Very nice set lunch menu in this beautifull restaurant with stunning views on the roofs of Londen! Food was great, staff were very friendly. And they tought of the birthday of my husband with a perfect window view table and a "Happy Birthday" with the desert! Very much appreciated!
My favourite restaurant in London
Everything was a delight, courteous service and delicious food. And the view can’t be beat! Have visited many times and will continue to do so.
Best place for lunch. Delicious food, top service and great atmosphere.
Had a really lovely lunch, really appreciated the view from the window table and the service was excellent. The food and wine were rather pricey. Rhubarb crumble was particularly good
Amazing staff !!
The staff at Portrait are always excellent but our waiter was exceptionally excellent yesterday. I ate all he recommended and it was delicious. Thank you
We visited your establishment on the 13th April 2019 to celebrate my sister's birthday and it was just lovely. The staff were very professional but friendly and the Afternoon Tea was gorgeous. The fact that we were a party of 19 persons made it all the more special that we were looked after so well. Also the views were wonderful. As the person who booked the occasion over the phone, my job was made so much easier by the members of staff I spoke to who were courteous, friendly and put me at my ease. Nothing was too much trouble which was a big help as I had to increase the numbers for the booking over the course of several weeks.
We had Sunday lunch. We both had the soup which was only warm. The lamb and the beef were both quite fatty and again the food was only warm. It was if the plates had been sitting in the kitchen for some time - not particularly tasty or appetising. Dry carrot and dry potatoes and no mint sauce with the lamb. We did not make a fuss but were not impressed. The desserts were nice as was the coffee. Service was good. I have been many times to the Restaurant and this was not a good meal for the price. I also booked some days before and requested a window seat which was not available. I know it is not always possible, but the waiter was not at all concerned that we could not sit where we requested. Overall disappointing.
Visited for pre-theatre dinner. It is a wonderful restaurant with exceptional views over London. The food and the service were excellent.
Its always fantastic to lunch at the Portrait.You do a great job. Both vegetarians and vegans were really happy.
Fabulous lunch on Saturday. Great food, good and friendly service on arrival and at the table and wonderful views of London. My guests had a very nice time which was the main thing.
We loved our visit to the restaurant, it was a great atmosphere, lovely food and friendly, professional service. It really made our day trip to London extra special!
Even though it was really busy Saturday 13th April, the service was prompt and the staff were polite and professional.
Very pleasant occasion. Lovely to wander through art and to enjoy a London rooftop view while easting good food.
Good food with a lovely view
Never disappointed, my favourite restaurant in London. I have been for lunch, tea, pre-theatre and dinner. Always a treat!
