Fine food menu, great presentation and taste. Entire staff is inspired and trained to please. I will admit, they were tipped accordingly. River and decor complement each other. Note; they offer river cruises and other specials but we did not take advantage on this trip.

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 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...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.
Has anyone used the '45 minute resort photo session at pacific dream photography' included in the $25/day resort activity package? Is this something you need to schedule before you arrive, or can you schedule it once you check in?

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.
