I went here for a business meeting and all thou the restaurant was pretty empty, the waitstaff made sure our table was taken care of. I know a lot of the time when a restaurant is slow the waitstaff seems to be no where to be seen. The salmon burger was great and the house chips were very good.

Excellent food in a top class atmosphere. The views are great along the river and you may see random wildlife near or on the water. Place has a reputation of excellence.

I am usually more complimentary than negative in my reviews unless the place is just awful. But Portofinos is a real treat. The ambience, staff and food are 100% superb. I had coconut shrimp and my friend had prime rib. Very nice portions we both took a little bit home. The clam chowder is the most flavorful you will find.... More

We end up taking large groups to Portofinos often since they are close to our offices and can easily handle large groups. It was helpful they were open on Mondays since several other restaurants in the area are closed on Monday's. The service was great and the presentations of the food was bounds above many other times I have eaten... More

One of us had an appetizer, the other lunch. FRench Onion soup is the best we've ever had! Also the mussels with white wine, garlic and spinach and toasted cheese bread was more like a meal. The restaurant was very clean, classy with a friendly staff. They offer many seafood dishes as well as prime rib. MEnu is pricey, but... More

I have been to Portofino several times with groups (25-30) people. The view of the river is beautiful, but the service and the quality of the food seems to have gone downhill some in the past few years. Still not bad but for the money there are several other restaurants where I would rather go for a good meal.

I would definitely consider this venue for an event. The service was good, the staff was friendly, food was good and the view was amazing.

My mother wanted to have dinner together while we were all in town and suggested Portofino's. I haven't been here in years and agreed to go with some trepidation as my last experience wasn't the best. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff was great, the seating and overall layout was very nice. As for our... More

My Mom, sister, and I had been treated to lunch in early October by my friend and previous co-worker before our retirements. She is a new condo resident to Downriver's Wyandotte community. We enjoyed the meal, the waterfront view, the service, and the facility so much that day that my Mom decided to dine again for a late afternoon meal,... More

The view is beautiful. The wait staff accommodating. The steak was tasteless. The manager did give us a free dessert and half off my meal.
