As we were staying at the LBKC we were anxious to give this restaurant a try. It looks fabulous from the outside, nice decor internally, and the staff are very friendly and efficient. So why not a 5 star review - the food, whilst perfectly acceptable, does not have any 'wow' factor, nothing really stood out and it is fairly... More

Friends Dick & Ruthie Cushing were lifelong residents, and I visited often staying at the Holiday Inn. The marina is such a nice setting for the Portfino, I just love the club and the resort. I enjoyed a glass of red in remembrance of my friends. I had a chicken special with pasta.

The place is in an absolutely beautiful marina, so all you need to do is serve quality food with a good service and you are in business. Not the case for us. I ordered pizza and I regret doing so! This was the worse pizza I have ever had. It actually tasted like it was frozen and just thrown into... More

Visited as part of our week's vacation on Longboat Quay. We were very happy with all aspects of this restaurant. Food, setting, service and cost. We ate quite early so the place was quiet and our waiter had plenty time to make us feel welcome.

We stayed at the Longboat Key Club Resort and this restaurant came highly recommended. It was our last night before hitting Orlando and so we got the hotel to book us a table. First of all entering the restaurant it was extremely noisy and we couldn't hear each other talk!! We ordered starters and these were passable but when we... More

We went there twice for dinner during last week. My wife ordered scallops with linguine on both occasions. I ordered the seafood stew earlier this week. On Sat night, I ordered a veal chop special with Marsala sauce. We had the tiramisu for deserts. The cooking is excellent. Country club setting with view of the Longboat Marina. Good service. Food...

My wife and I were staying at the marina for the fourth of July holiday weekend. We went to the Portofino Restaurant after a long day of being on the water watching the boat races. We didn't have reservations but were able to get seats at the bar which was fine with us. We both had salads and pizza for... More

This is available only to members and guests of the Longboat Key Club. It is OK Italian food. Very noisy when full. Service is fair - the Club understaffs.

My wife and I went to dinner with my mom and we just wanted to sit at the bar to eat. Jordan was a fantastic host. A great bartender and fun conversationalist. They were very busy that evening, so Manager Katie Slingsby had to take over the pizza oven for a bit; preparing pizzas right before our eyes and popping... More

We didn't have a reservation (I don't recommend that) it is longboat keys most popular restaurant and for good reason. We sat at a high top by bar. Bartender Jordan was amazing. He handled the entire restaurant drink orders and served the high top tables. His recommendations were spot on, one of the best restaurants we have ever eating at!... More
