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

What other restaurant allows you to pull up by boat and then dine? Great vista. Good service and good menu. Great for family gatherings. Had my daughters baptism party here.

Met with some friends at five on a Thursday and we were easily able to be seated. By six there may have been a small wait. I would guess this is a regular occurrence. It was my impression that most of the patrons were there...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.

The question asked is about Pacific Dream Photography photo session not the restaurant. Was this an offer from Pacific Dream Photography when you visit the restaurant? Sincere apologies for the delayed response.
