Portals Restaurant at Suncadia Resort Ratings and Reviews

I ordered the pork chop. No mention was made on the menu that there would be ANY jalapeno My wife and I had dinner at Portals SAT night, October 1. I ordered the pork chop. NOWHERE written on the menu was I told it would come with a quantity of jalapenos that would stop an army. In fact, no mention of jalapenos! Additionally, the pork chop had a consistency of shoe leather. Fool that I am, I suffered through it and chose not to complain. I won't be making that mistake again. By all accounts, a horrible dining experience. Greatly disappointed. Mixed emotions about wanting to dine again at Portals. (We have previously dined at Portals and very much enjoyed the experience!)

Very disappointed with the food considering the price you pay. We ordered 6 different plates of food including dessert and I can not say that any of them were enjoyable. In fact, all were either lacking flavor or dried out. Overall the resort is beautiful but the food is less than to be desired.

The waitress left us completely unattended for nearly an hour. Our food took an hour to arrive and was a tiny portion. Not worth the money. We have enjoyed the breakfast and dinner in the past. Definitely NOT our best experience.

My medium rare filet was still cold in the middle. Not acceptable. Our server offered to throw it back on but that simple does not work when you're paying $50 for a steak it needs to be done right the first time. I was not about to wait another 20+ minutes for another steak. No manager came by to apologize or offer any kind of reimbursement. The rest of the meal was lacking any real flavor that I'd want to try again. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary and dressed for the occasion. They sat us netween a party of 16 people and another table with two yelling kids. We asked to move and just never felt pampered as you should at a place like this

Extremely loud, took over an hour to get out food, took over 20 minutes just to get a cocktail. Food quality was okay, but for the cost (which is high) the ambiance, service, and quality was significantly lacking.

Restaurant was good, but, the staff was a bit green. Checked in with hostess while seated in bar, and she forgot about us. Had to come to host stand 5 minutes after reservation. Service staff also new and not too knowledgeable about menu and wine selections. Did not affect experience, but, some more training would help.
Lovely date night with a view. Delicious ...
Lovely date night with a view. Delicious drinks, perfectly cooked steak. A loud party of women seated next to us could have been annoying - they didn't really bother us, but the house comped our wine to apologize. Only added to our high opinion of the service.
Fantastic view, pretty good, but limited
We went for an intimate dinner, just the two of us. The room is pleasant, with a beautiful gas fire. Large windows on two sides open to an endless vista of mountains and sky. Service was very pleasant. The menu was somewhat limited, with not a lot of selection. I started with a truffled mushroom dish that was excellent. We shared a steak/crab leg surf and turf. the steak was very good, crab legs generous size. the wine list was quite abbreviated, with very few bottles less than $100. There was exactly one zinfandel. Markup on that bottle was roughly 3x. My wife wanted an espresso and the server volunteered to run to the coffee shop, open it up, since it had closed by that point, and prepare her an espresso, which was well above and beyond the call of duty. Overall a very pleasant dining experience, but not outstanding.
We have eaten at Portals many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the past. This weekend, we had breakfast and dinner. Neither meal was as good as past experiences.
The service was good. One person in our group is suffering from food allergies and our waitress worked with the kitchen to accommodate as much as possible. We ordered steaks and one of the sides was the truffle fries. When the fries were brought out, she noticed the portion was unusually small and without being asked, she brought another order. The steaks, New Yorks and a Filet, were good but not great. They were around $50 each, so pricing comparable to a good steakhouse, but not close to the quality you would expect for the price. The setting is nice and the view is beautiful. Staying at the resort, there are limited options, and the pricing (high) and quality (fair) are consistent with the fact that you are a captive audience.
In the past breakfast was a good experience - still expensive, but friendly service and good food. This trip breakfast was a disappointment. We ordered omelets, but they were overcooked. I would say that either the kitchen or the waitress, or both, should have recognized how overcooked they were and not served them. To be fair, we did not send them back, so maybe they would have taken care of it, but the waitress also never came back and asked how they were. In the past, we had ordered the buffet which had been really good. This time, we walked through it before ordering and were disappointed to see limited choices and food that had been sitting for some time. When picking up the lids off the food containers, a large amount of water ran off the lid and into the food so most of it looked soggy and unappetizing.
Dinner was expensive, but the food was good. Unfortunately, breakfast was expensive and the food was not good. Hopefully, they will find there way back to the selection and quality they've offered in the past.
First off, the Suncadia resort was great, we really enjoyed it. We'd read that the Portals restaurant had a new chef, and was receiving favorable reviews. But we tried it 3 times during our 4 day stay, twice for dinner and once for breakfast, and it was really pretty bad. For breakfast I'd ordered the eggs benedict, and it came out with the eggs completely hard boiled. Never had that happen anywhere before. I sent it back, and the next version had eggs that were barely cooked. Hardly even warm. They still didn't take it off the bill though.
First night for dinner, the brussels sprouts as an appetizer were good, but everything else was just horrible. The Halibut ($37) plate was the worst cooked, most flavorless fish dish I think I've ever had. Just no flavor to anything on the plate. My wife's chicken was similarly flavorless. The chocolate cake dessert was bad as well, with a really strange flavor.
We were going to try somewhere in the nearby town for our last night's dinner, but it was memorial day weekend and everything was booked. So we thought maybe we'd be safe with burgers at Portals. But the server told us that they had been out of the elk/wagyu meat for the burgers for days (did they not prep for a holiday weekend when the resort was packed??), and all they had was bison burgers. We ordered these, and once again, they were completely flavorless.
Avoid Portals until they get their act together.
Service was pleasant. I had duck that was overcooked. Childrens food looked good and they enjoyed it. My wife had a beef dish that was over cooked. Wine list if expensive for what it is. For the price it did nt meet the mark. The views are stunning and the room is relatively quiet for a family restaurant.
Very expensive. Not a good meals.
We waited more then one and a half hour after we ordered the meals.The tenderloin steak was burned on top and cover with sauce and cold and uncooked on the center. The creme brûlée was warm and very soft. We had a very bad experience!!
Beyond our Expectations
We spent a few days up at Suncadia and ate most of our meals at PORTALS restaurant.
The food was exceptional and beyond our expectations. Staff was prompt, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the menu, wine and drink list. Can't wait to plan a future trip to Suncadia and Portals again.
So sad it isnt like it use to be.
My husband and I have gone in the past several times to portal restaurant. I remember the food and service was great. Sadly this time I wasnt too happy with food or service. The quality has gone down. Meat was over cooked, the mushroom soup was too salty. The server forgot to place my husbands entree order. mean while I had to share my meal with him until his order came in. The only good thing there is the ambience and their fresh doughnuts.

We dined at Portals for my friends birthday lunch before our Glade Springs spa appointments. Our server, Amy, was delightful. We enjoyed the fish tacos and the chopped salad with grilled prawns, and of course a couple Mimosas! The view is spectacular, the restaurant is quiet, we had the perfect meal! Thank you Portals for helping us celebrate Cathy's birthday!
When I ordered food from our room, it wasn't specified that it will not be delivered. We were asked to wait for 30 minutes to get it ready, we waited for an hour so I decided to call them and ask. The food was prepared for almost an hour already and cold. They even charged us for food we didn't order (ordered a kid meal and gave us a full 30 dollar plus entree instead). Overall it was a horrible experience, not to mention the overpriced meals. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant at all.
Visited on a busy night with my wife and two small kids. Nice setting and friendly staff. Paid $160 for food that arrived warm after an hour twenty minute wait. The meals probably would have been much better hot and then the price reasonable for a destination dining option. As it was, disappointing on both fronts.
Don't be dissappointed, go elsewhere
We arrived at our appointed time, with our wives who were both Birthdays. Told the restaurant in advance. Wine was fantastic, service was OK, but no acknowledgement of the birthday girls! The words were "you have two free desserts coming". We could have gotten those at Dairy Queen. The food was less then worth the 1.5 hours to get there. Bread was brittle and broken on the sandwiches, lettuce was wilted. Closest we get next time is Swiftwater Winery.
We decided to get away for a date night and thought it would be great to eat with in Suncadia Resort as that is where we were staying. The server was wonderful and super sweet. The Manager on the other hand was very hovering in a very awkward way. He made me feel I couldn't be honest with how the food was. It was weird the pressure he gave off.. We ordered our food (which was very expensive) And that is fine if what is delivered was fabulous but they just hit the mark. My ravioli was very chewy and my husbands steak really just lacked flavor.. I f we decide to go back we would just order from the lounge and not go for the 120 bill for food we didn't enjoy.
Portals made our special occaision extra special!!
My two friends & I have shared our birthdays in February for many years with an annual breakfast. This year we decided on Portals. When I made the reservation, I requested a view table, which we got...beautiful! Our two servers were very attentive & friendly. The food & coffee were excellent. When they found out it was our birthdays, they surprised us with a banana split on the house...very sweet! We will definitely be back.
Lunch, Yes! Dinner, Okay.
Dinner at Portals on a weeknight was a bit disappointing for the price -- especially when compared with Hoist @ Swiftwater. The salads and entrees were fine but dessert was mediocre and service was just "okay." It was not a bad experience by any means, but not the remarkable. That said, we had lunch earlier on the same day and it was pleasant enough. I might try dinner at Portals again but would recommend Hoist first.
Food was mediocre at best, had mushroom soup that came out just above Luke warm, appetizer Brussels sprouts were great but Gorgonzola ravioli wasn't good at all, super dry and raviolis were so al dente they were practically crunchy. Husband got steak and that was ok, but the cowboy steak was the best (another person in our group had that). Service was good and drinks were good, food just didn't live up to the expectation. Bill was $260 out the door...so much money for meh food.
Everything we ordered was delicious and plentiful.
I had the Cedar plank salmon with the huckleberry sauce...it was phenomenal!! My husband had the Saturday night special 12 ounce sirloin, that he cut with a butter knife... it melted in his mouth! I ended with a salted caramel martini...need I say more! We will be returning!
