Everyone's meals were WAY overcooked. Rare steaks came out well done and eggs were poached hard.

The food was not that good for the price. Was like warmed cafeteria food. Chicken was dry, salmon over cooked. Very unimpressed. However, the wait staff were fabulous.

Only experienced breakfast here, opted for the buffet both times. Quick and attentive servers who made sure you had all the juice, coffee, and tea you needed as well as getting you toast and bagels from the back as requested. They quickly removed all dirty plates as well. They always had a smile and friendly conversation to start the day off right. Staff at the host stand were friendly and greet you promptly upon arrival and seat you right away. Staff working the buffet line were courteous, open to questions, and kept the food hot, plentiful, and delicious. Omelets were outstanding! Be sure to request your Universal Studios annual passholder discount if you dine here. Can't wait to go back!

As expected, the pricing is outrageous. I get that it's a resort, and things are going to cost a lot. But 4 bucks for a Glas of OJ and 25 dollars for a buffet that has less options than say a golden corrall is pathetic.


The place is beautiful, don't get me wrong, but the excessive pricing is turning me away.

I'm just going to start packing all of my own meals.

The dinner menu was not very extensive, but everything we ordered was delicious. The casual, quiet atmosphere was exactly what we needed after a long day at Universal. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and really just outstanding. Would highly recommend.

The pasta buffet that used to be the focus of this restaurant should be returned. While the current dining is "ok", the pasta buffet cooked to order was excellent.

The restaurant was much better pre-pandemic. The buffet was outstanding. The buffet now is average. The penne was way overcooked. The mixed vegetables were perfect. The salad was excellent. No dessert with the buffet was disappointing.

Asked the buffet attendant if an ingredient was in an item. They said no. After they handed me my plate I could see the ingredient was present. Another employee verified that it was present. I asked because I was allergic.

Family friendly for sure. Staff interact children and help with meal adjustments as requested. Food excellent. A bit pricy for real world equivalent but good value for resort food.

The service was fantastic. Our server was very attentive and even helped to customize the appetizer. The flavor of the food was ok. The main problem was the fact that the main course ( chicken Marsala) was served cold. Had it been hot it may have had better flavor. The bread was really good and the fennel butter was tasty. The chicken pasta soup was also very good.

We had the dinner buffet the night prior. That was more worth the $25-$27 pp. Breakfast should not be more than $19pp. Not enough options, no turkey or chicken sausage available. No bagels or pastries. Powdered eggs, fruit, pork bacon and sausage, pancakes, oatmeal, grits (these were good), hash browns, omelet station..not worth the money.

This is the 4th time in the last 8 months we have been to Portofino Bay and ate at Trattoria del Porto. Consistently friendly and attentive staff, dining options are limited, but so well prepared. The buffet offered tender braised beef and lemon grouper last evening, along with a diverse selection of salad bar items. My daughter has the eggplant parm and it was delicious and plated very nicely as well. Price point is remarkably lower than the quality of food and service received. Highly recommend!

So over priced considering the quality. Veggie pasta was flavorless. Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp was small portion of pasta with 4 shrimp. $30!!!! We didn’t try buffet but it seems to be better choice if you go. Especially with kids. We had table service for 4. $158 for a meal worth about $65

Great service. The buffet attendants kept the line moving quickly and the waiters were quick to refill drinks. Very clean. Food was good. Hubby wished for hash browns but the roasted potatoes were seasoned well and tender. My girls really enjoyed the pancakes topped with fresh berries.

We were seated quickly but not assigned to a wait staff member so after waiting a while went and checked with check in desk. They did not seem understaffed just confused as to who was supposed to serve our table. Once that was figured out all was smooth. The service was good and food delicious!
