Honestly, the Portofino provided the best wedding experience I could ever imagine. We looked at quite a few venues before the Portofino was the obvious choice. From the beginning, every part of the wedding package (from a combined ceremony + reception space, to included catering, to accommodations, to breath-taking ocean views, to fantastic staff) was a dream come true. Everyone who helped us during the planning process--from food-tasting to various questions--was amazing (especially Jenna). All of my questions were answered via email immediately. The food was AMAZING with HUGE portions, and the bartender was SPECTACULAR. Also, by using Torrance Bakery, our cake was included in our bill AND was delivered to the venue, saving us from having to deal with getting the cake there. Our guests were blown away by everything, and so were we. Additionally, compared to other venues AND considering the extremely high quality of absolutely everything, the Portofino is an amazing value. We actually had a couple of straight-forward family members say something to the effect of: "You must be spending a fortune!", but truth be told, the Portofino was extremely affordable, but provided a once in a lifetime luxurious experience for us, and for our guests.

As for various upgrades, I definitely recommend ballroom uplights! Eight of them is $200, I believe, but they really added a necessary pop of color. I also think the terrance lighting package made the outside bar festive, but it's a bit overpriced. For that same reason we did NOT add ceremony lighting decor because we were only out there 20 minutes or so, and kept our arch simple. The only downside that I experienced was that because there was an event before ours, we were not able to decorate the ceremony space or ballroom until 4:00pm (our ceremony was at 5:30), which made pre-wedding VERY hectic. But it got done, and everything was perfect nonetheless. Can't recommend this venue enough.

My husband and I got married at the Portofino on October 24th, 2015. To say that our wedding exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Lisa Fleming was our sales coordinator and was so helpful, professional and organized throughout the entire process. She made the process go seamlessly. Additionally, Jenna, our day of coordinator, was excellent. The Portofino itself has breathtaking views, delicious food and very friendly and accommodating staff. I wish I could give this review 6 stars and Lisa Fleming seven :).

We had our ceremony and reception at The Portofino on July 19, 2015 in the Pacific Ballroom. Lisa Fleming, the catering sales manager, was our focal at The Portofino for nine months. She was professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive from the start! Lisa built a great rapport with us beginning with our first meeting at The Portofino. She was so informative with every question we asked, as we did ask a lot of questions! Lisa provided examples and suggestions all along the way. We always felt like we were a priority! The tasting was splendid, the cake from Torrance Bakery was great, and the meals were fantastic on the day-of. Lisa easily solved any hiccups that arose and offered resolutions where necessary. The banquet orders are built specifically for the venue and can be confusing to the customer, but Lisa offered us explanations and required updates. Lisa worked fluidly with our wedding planner who was brought into the planning a couple months before the wedding. It rained on the day of our wedding. The Portofino staff, including Jenna Moore, was very accommodating and assisted in transitioning our ceremony indoors per our request. We have no regrets having our ceremony and reception at The Portofino and would highly recommend it, as well as Lisa Fleming, for your wedding or special occasion!

Lisa from the catering department kept me sane during the 2 months of preparation for my daughter's wedding reception. She was quick to answer all of my questions and comments. She was flexible, professional and kind. The venue was beautiful and intimate. All the guests had a wonderful time and could not get enough of the beautiful surroundings. The staff were courteous, helpful and professional. The food was fantastic, the portions were big and tasty.
Thank you so much for a successful reception. I would recommend the Portofino hotel for a wedding venue to everyone.

The level of service here is amazing. They were so professional and you cannot beat the view. I had such an incredible wedding day and I know that I owe a lot of that to the Portofino and the staff. My wedding was a dream come true and I paid far less than what I expected. It was as if I spent a million dollars for this venue. I certainly didn't spend anywhere near that but that's how that day felt. I cannot think of a better place to get married in SoCal. Every time I remember my wedding day I smile and that has a lot to do with the Portofino.

I just wanted to take a few minuets to write about our amazing wedding. First of all, my now wife, and I had no idea how much effort a wedding could have been. We could not be more impressed and happy with the staff and the team of people who helped us along the way at The Portofino Hotel. Without Kate Foster, the wedding coordinator, for the Portofino Hotel, we would have been lost. From beginning to end she was absolutely the number one person who made this day so special for us. She gave us lots of options and even worked with us to fine tune them. She helped us choose things like our photographer, our florist, and our DJ. She even gave us tons of options with venders, who helped us down to the extra lighting and optional colored table linings and even extra furniture, to make this celebration a truly, one of a kind event. I can't express how fortunate we were to have all of her help from her professionalism, and kindness, to her knowledge and experience with planning weddings. Along the way we had such a pleasant time working with the Potofino Hotel. The evening was so well planned, without a single hitch! The beautiful land scape for pictures felt like we were on a tropical island. Our First Look was in front of the hotel on a beautiful dock with amazing yachts. Our family pictures in the main lobby by the fireplace are unbelievable. The happy hour and Hors d' oeuvres were great, it got all our guest ready for a fun filled evening. We had our ceromony on the lawn next to the ballroom. The sun was out and the ocean view was perfect. The reception was a blast. The food was a hit. We cannot get enough compliments on everything. We are so glad we choose The Portofino Hotel to have our wedding and it will forever be the place we will think of that made our wedding so special. We can't wait to go there every year to have dinner and relive our wonderful memories.

This place is amazing!! We worked mostly with Kim and Shelley. They couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We made so many changes to the menu I thought they would freak out, but they took it in stride and never once seemed upset. They listened to everything we wanted and made it all happen. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the room was, the terrace, the hotel, etc. They were amazed by how great the food was. The crab cakes were a HUGE hit. The price was totally reasonable and included so many things that our stress levels really diminished. They are professional, kind and really know what they are doing. I definitely recommend them! Thank you guys so much!!

Our wedding and reception was amazing at the Portofino! Our family and close friends all arrived at the hotel the day before and we were surrounded by loving, supportive people in a beautiful, romantic setting for two days. The day before and after the wedding had dreary, windy weather but the day of our wedding...perfect sunny skies. The staff was amazing, the hotel was beautiful and we had the most amazing day of our lives.
