2 Reviews for The Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club
We had our reception at the Portofino in the large ballroom. Rosanna Harrison was our wedding planner there. She was very friendly and helpful with her advice. Even when I was changing my mind at the last minute. When those week-of-nerves were flaring, she was right there with good advice to calm me down.
The view is stunning at this place. We had a plated sit-down dinner and the food was amazing. A selection of Chicken Cordon Blue or New York Strip with Scallops. A strawberry, red onion and raspberry vinaigrette salad to start and I think there was a sorbet intermezzo, but I missed that and even our cake because I was talking with guests.
They let us handle the bar in a very specific way. We did the cocktail hour with tray past and plated hourderves, open bar of beer and wine and cash for liquor. Then we closed the open bar during dinner as there was a champagne toast and then opened it up for another hour after dinner. It remained open for cash after that.
It was beautiful. The only small complaint was that as the night wore on there was no more servers or any staff. It was really hot in there during the dance set and no one was available to ask to open the big beautiful windows. That was really not a huge issue, but I would recommend to have them open the windows for you in advance ; )
