I am a member at the Longboat Key Club. We want this restaurant to be good, but we have consistently bad service. REALLY BAD! The food can be adequate but why would you subject yourself to this?

Incredibly mediocre dining. Hard to understand how a restaurant can destroy the easiest meals including ceasar salad and pasta. Suffice it to say the salad had been made earlier, drenched with dressing and sitting in the refrigerator. The waiter admitted that it was not very good since the lettuce was completely wilted. The pasta was lukewarm and tasted like it... More

we go often to Portofino and usually sit in the bar. They have great pizza and pasta Bolognese, one of which we usually get, but most of their other dishes we've had are great. Killer calamari app. Drinks are very generous, and the regular bartender is one of the hardest workers we've ever seen, and endeavors to take good care... More

Epic fail this visit. Came again to eat at the bar. Bar was filled with 12 guests and 2 tables. The poor bartender was overwelmed and had little help. He was also making the drinks for the rest of the busy restaurant. We left after 30 minutes having not even ordered yet. Got waters and menus but no service. my... More

If dining is the only reason to be a member Do Not Join. Same menu for years including the grease stains and severely scratched plates. All in my party were very dissatisfied

We went last night. Don't waste your money. Same menu for 3 years. 'Homemade Gniocchi' are disgusting and obviously bought in from a terrible supplier. I actually doubt this place actually makes anything fresh.. The special last night was PORK shank osso bucho (cheapest cut ever) at $42. Are they serious? As what they call themselves, a 5 star resort,... More

A 5years unchanged menu. Never very good but tonight was the worst. Lobster with Gnocchi.......Disgusting. Asked the fat server if the gnocchi was homemade,'Of Course it is'. It wasn't... It was totally awful balls of a floury glue. When asked by the server why I'd left it, he shrugged his shoulders and took it away, with no further comment...... This... More

We recently rented a Longboat Key Mooring's slip from it's owner, and thought it would be great to just walk up to this restaurant when ever we wanted to hang out at the bar, go out for dinner, grab a pizza. Believe me, we go out a lot and patronize our local businesses religiously! So we were a bit dismayed... More

I don't know about you but service is 1/3 of the meal. Location and salad bar are great. Try to get a window seat on your anniversary and they are almost rude. Had appetizer at bar, bartender forgot our order, and left customers meal next to us for 10 minutes. They finally complained that it was cold. Fought with drunk... More
