A wonderful experience! We always come to the Portrait a restaurant when we are in London ( we visit from Canada) and love the views, the food, the friendly and expert staff. We understand you will be closing for remodelling, hope you will be open soon. Good luck and all the best. Barbara
We had a pleasant lunch here, staff were friendly and polite, although the service was rather slow given that there weren't many diners. Food was good, although my friends fish dish was more like a starter portion. Overall, good but not at these very 'toppy' prices.
As always, I and my party very much enjoyed our early evening meal, which was delicious and such good value, with efficient friendly service.
Superb on every level. Thank you.
Lovely atmosphere, delicious food and impeccable service!
Outstanding service. The waiters went the extra mile to make my husband's birthday so memorable. I cant thank you all enough.
Terrific restaurant for a pre theatre meal in the West End. Wonderful view! The food was delicious and we were so impressed by the high standard of service. I'd definitely recommend to others.
Good atmosphere, location and value for money.
Food and service consistently good
Staff are always lovely, food is great but I would say the portions are a bit small for the prevtheatre menu. Beautiful venues and always my first choice when I’m in the area.
Started well, nice warm welcome, nice table by the window (although parts of view obscured by scaffolding due to ongoing building repairs on roof) Ordered afternoon tea and a cocktail for my wife, arrived promptly. Server was excellent; described each facet on the cake stand with real enthusiasm. However, everything had obviously been prepared and put on stand in advance, so everything was chilled - including the bread on the sandwiches, which made them dry. Fillings average, truffle in egg sandwich (in my opinion) too strong - I was still tasting it hours later! Tea very nice and free refill, scones/jam/cream very nice, violet and chocolate macaroons not nice! At £72 for 2 average afternoon teas, with 1 Bellini, including optional 12.5% service charge? Bit pricey!! You did try, but could do much better - we left refreshed, but still hungry!
I wish I could take away cream and jam, not only scones.
As always the food and drink were just right and the service efficient and also helpful. It formed part of a most enjoyable evening at the Cecil Beaton private view.
Excellent customer service as always.
Beautiful location with super views
We arrived a half-hour before our reservation time, and they were OK and even gave us a window table!
Good food, excellent service, lovely views, peaceful ambience.
The service was excellent. Katherine was the waitress and she was delightful. Thank you. Such friendly staff.
We had a very good pre- theatre meal. The service was friendly and professional . It was good value for money and we enjoyed the friendly buzz of the restaurant and the views of London .
Either it is an inclusive price or a la carte That means not charging £4 for a portion of mashed potatoes to complete an inclusive price dish. The price for a small glass of white wine seems set to take 'the mickey' out of your customers
Fantastic service, food was lovely. Unfortunately I’m not sure the views will be the same after the renovation works 😥👍🏻
Special thanks to the chef. One of us asked for custard with their rhubarb crumble (instead of ice cream) and he/she made it specially.
Wonderful. Loved it
Very good cooking. Fabulous fish. Stunning view. Exceptional service. Too loud!
Many thanks for the Happy Birthday shortbread! Made the lunch very special😊
