“Has Been a Couple of Years”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

First time I went there was 1997 and it was so nice. Went 5 years ago and the place seemed run down and dumpy. Haven't been back since.

“Italian Interest”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I ate lunch with a friend at Portofino. Although Italian food isn't my favorite, I had a good meal. The view of the river accompanies the meal and makes it more interesting. This is a restaurant that can accommodate large groups too.

“Great food and comedy!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We decided to check out the comedy room at this location in Wyandotte and was pleasantly surprised that the evening was quite enjoyable. The food we enjoyed included itailan sausage and tenderloin pasta and a cobb salad. Both were excellent, large portions and reasonable prices. The three comics were non stop laughter!! The service during dinner was excellent and during the show was very good. We would recommend. Much nicer in the summer because of the patio and warmer weather of course but still very nice!!

“Never know about the service”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The atmosphere on the patio in the summer is unmatched downriver. The views of the water and the boats are excellent. Food is normally very good. However, the service is always a crap shoot. One day you get great service and the next day you wait 10 or 15 minutes for a drink.
