The Original Portuguese Grill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 683.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Price of the dinner was higher than the online menu showed; instead of home fries we were served French fries and part of the dinner was so spicy we could not eat it. I will never go there again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious seafood and sauces. Bread is wonderful as are the desserts.The live music from Bob or Celeste is terrific, but should be a little lower. The room is not that large and the volume is set too high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food was delicious but they got my husbands order wrong. They compensated by giving a small reduction in price but it did put a damper on the experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great service, food was good. I must say, however, that the prices are high for the lunch fare offered. Without the $10 Restaurant.com Certificate, it would have cost $40 for 2 for non-spectacular lunches. I won't be going back.
