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.

I visited Portofino for a bridal shower. The location was lovely. The food was scrumptious. The only challenge was that it was soooo hot in the back room off of the water. I was really surprised at how good the food was.

I stopped in here on the recommendation from the host family as I was in town attending a baseball tournament inTaylor. The location is great right on the river and my initial impression of the restaurant was very nice and as I had an option, I chose to be seated outside on the deck at a table underneath an umbrella...

We eat here every summer. Kids love sitting outside and watching the boats and water. Dinners are pricey but we always order sandwiches, soups and salads and it's very reasonable. The French dip, Cobb salad and French onion soup are amazing

I attended a recent wedding reception for friends at Portofino's. We were ushered to the back glass enclosed banquet room. Altho very pretty, facing the water, it was EXTREMELY HOT and extremely uncomfortable. Everyone was fanning themselves frantically, and some guests left soon after arriving. The elderly were obviously uncomfortable with the HOT conditions, Me and my husband included. Later... More
