Afternoon tea is served daily 15:30-16:30
Food was very average and lukewarm. Location and views outstanding but the food lets the restaurant down.
We came together to mark a special occasion. The staff were friendly, attentive and the food was delicious. Portrait is the perfect location to mark a family occasion with stunning views over Trafalgar Sq. We had a great time. Thank-you.
The set menu was excellent. The white gazpacho was delcious. Service was friendly but professional. We will return!
Charming ... some caring people for service even if was asked several times to move my chair. rather cheeky prices especially regarding wine because it gave me a terrible headache .we filled up with bread a butter ! Which unfortunately took the joy out of the main dishes. Still would go back .
good waiter ;Javier. All male staff v. pleasant. Vegetarian food good - not great - and little choice. And - as often -not to the value of meat/fish.
Brilliant as always
A fantastic surprise!
Es war ein tolles Erlebnis. Voller Geschmack und das Personal verwöhnt den Gast. Die Atmosphäre in dem Raum ist "kalt", nicht gemütlich.
Wirklich super Location, um einen einzigartigen und besonderen Afternoon Tea zu sich zu nehmen. Perfekt für besondere Anlässe!
Best vegetarian meal and most delicious cocktails I have had in a long time! Staff were happy, funny and friendly yet extremely professional. Unbelievable view across London. It made my trip to London extra special.
Great views, great atmosphere, great staff and a great place to bring visitors to London
We had an excellent lunch, beautiful views over the city, excellent food and first class service would definitely visit again.
Marvellous views and splendid food. Attentive service and good value.
Good experience. Hope to come back
I visit the Portrait Restaurant frequently and I am never disappointed. The staff are exceptional good.
We visit frequently and enjoy the menu, the service, and the view.
Attended for Sunday's 3 course menu. Every course was pretty much outstanding. However as a Senior I prefer 2 courses ... 3 is just too much food.
food excellent but rather spoilt by noisy room
Great location and service, food good but could have been hotter.
Excellent overall experience. Will be back!
My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at this restaurant. I booked it for our anniversary which I notified staff during my booking. I had also requested a window seat which we were allocated. The view from the restaurant is just lovely. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The staff are very attentive and will do their best to ensure you are enjoying your evening. We were surprised with a complimentary dessert saying" happy anniversary". This was such a nice touch and made the evening even more special. I would have no hesitation recommending this little gem to friends and family. Thank you for a memorable evening.
A great place to eat before going to the theatre. Guests visiting London always love the view.
Great experience to dining here!
We had a delicious lunch, wonderful view and very friendly helpful staff. Would certainly recommend to friends.
The tuna was fine, but the rabbit was a bit on the tough side. T~he vegetables were virtually raw. I know some people like them like this, but I do not and an option should be given to have them cooked more. I left most of mine, but nobody commented ro asked me why I had done so.
