I had my baby shower at the Portobello Banquet on 11/14/09. What a BIG mistake!!!
1) Our function was 12-4pm. The management allowed a sweet-16 party scheduled at 7pm to decorate our party room and the stairwell leading up to our room with masquerades and feathers during our party. Highly inappropriate for a baby shower! I told the manager, Terry, how upset I was about this especially since we reserved the room. They did not acknowledge my concerns. They simply said "This is a common ground anyways."
2) The wait staff was horrible. We had only 2 waiters for 35 people for a sit-down event. My relatives whom I haven't seen awhile and friends were complaining about the tardiness of the entrees and drink orders. A lot of our guests said "They were rude."
3) Food was poor quality. We had chicken, veal, and fish. A lot of plates were cold. We had asked them to reheat the food but the wait staff didn't get back to our request.
PLEASE DO NOT BOOK YOUR EVENT HERE! Please go somewhere else!
