I love going to Portofino because it has good food and the view is beautiful. I also used to say the prices were reasonable. Unfortunately, the prices have gone way up and this will cut back on how frequently we visit this restaurant. The menu...More

Disappointing experience. We have been here a few times by boat. This time we drove over an hour to get there. (High winds so no boat). First they only have complimentary valet parking. BUT gratuity is appreciated. So basically you have to pay to park!...More

This is a great place for lunch on the boats, I know they have 2 big boats and do a lot of lunch and dinner cruises. I am assuming you have a reservation for that many people. Enjoy your cruise.
