Porta Nova Restaurant
We went for dinner to take advantage of the Summerlicious menu. Overall we had a good experience with the food, but the air conditioning was not working and the restaurant was extremely hot and stuffy.
Very good Portuguese style restaurant. Excellent service. Shane Carruthers is the chef who has some very good ideas. Only issue is very limited parking available on the street which may change in time as the area is very much in transition.
A true hidden gem! The food was outstanding as was the service. Pork belly was to die for and wine list was on point! Definitely need to go back!
We came here for summerlicious and the food and service was not good at all. The pork belly was very dry and the duck rice was very salty! I only took two bites of my rice and could not take it and they replaced another dish for us. The server never asked how our food was and we had to initiate the conversation ourselves. They need to improve on their summerlicious menu!
The food was very good, but our server gave us a bit of attitude. Left us waiting for long periods and didn’t make us feel welcome. We might go back for the food, and hope for better service.
Didn't know Portuguese food was so great. I'm coming back.
Four of us from two generations had a very pleasant experience. The ambiance and comfort level we all found to be very good. Our food was well prepared and presented and all of us enjoyed our choices. The service was excellent! We all look forward to another visit.
A great experience!
Really liked the food. Cod was excellent and the server was very friendly.
GREAT steak. Friendly service.
Despite being only people in restaurant, service was quite slow. Food very oil laden.
Really great place. Friendly service and the food was awesome.
Great food and service at a reasonable price. We will definitely be back to enjoy their food again.
We have already recommended Porta Nova to several friends. The appetizers were flavourful and presented in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The four mains were all done to perfection, presented well, and extremely tasty. Desserts and coffee topped off another extremely enjoyable meal at Porta Nova.
The food and service were excellent. Steak, chicken, salad and dessert were fantastic. Great value and great food and great ambience
Will definitely go back soon!

We go often as the food is excellent, the service is impeccable and the menu is priced fairly.
Coming from a restaurant background, I am more critical than most so when we (my family) find a restaurant such as this, we continually go back.
The menu is varied enough to satisfy all pallets, the staff is very attentive (we drink a lot of water) and if you should have room for dessert (rather hard to do), the chocolate mousse is beyond reproach.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone without concern.
Hi Elliot, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We appreciate you. Next time try our fried ice cream for dessert! Looking forward to see you and your family at Porta Nova
Quite a long wait
Quite a long wait
Specifically asked for French fries instead of mashed potatoes but mashed potatoes arrived. Had to ask to change it. The mistake wasn’t really acknowledged.
Dear client, I'm so sorry for your bad experience in our restaurant. Here, at Porta Nova we are known for our attention to detail. Our team wants to apologize to fail with you. Please, come again and give us the chance to make things right this time!
We ended up in Porta Nova a bit by chance, but will definitely aim to go back. The great food, affordable wine list and friendly service really made for a good night. The only downside were the tv screens, might be better to turn them off at night.
