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

Nice scenery. However the service was rushed and food was ok but not worth the price tag. Much better places for just over 1/2 the price. I will not go back.

We ate at Portfino on 7/18/14 while vacationing at the Longboat Key Club and loved it. We had reservations for 7:00 and arrived and were seated immediately. We were welcomed by our waiter and informed of the specials for the day, we ordered drinks and a appetizer and took in the atmosphere of the restaurant. The views are of the... More

I think you come here for the atmosphere & views. I will say that I read & noticed that people liked & ordered pasta & pizza here. Maybe that was our mistake, as we ordered seafood entrees. My husbands was very overcooked & mine was good-not great. And not cheap. We had much better meals for half the price. Maybe... More

Went with family (all adults) and sat outside by the pool and the docks. A really nice setting. Serene & tranquil. Pretty good cocktail menu. Well-prepared pasta and fish. A nice find in LBK.
