Buyout Group - Company Event in January 2018
I organized a company dinner at Al Porto for about 125 people, and we rented the entire restaurant. The staff were wonderful and very helpful throughout the night. We had wine tasting, dinner, dance and game activities for kids upstairs. The ambiance was lovely, food and wine were delicious, kids' meals were amazingly huge, and staff were friendly and attentive throughout the night. The long table (20-24 people) seating worked out very well. Originally, I thought it would be too many people at a table but it worked out really nicely. Lots of conversations and fun at the tables.
Good location as there are numerous parkades located around, it's a 2-minute walk to Waterfront sky train station and taxis pass through Gastown all the time. Nice venue for a company event. Thanks, Al Porto
Everyone Happy - Group Dinner in May 2018
I brought here a group of 15 picky eaters (different dietary restrictions) for a professional training dinner. Had a fantastic experience throughout. Al Porto got complements from all the attendees.
Savannah was great to work our booking with, meal was delicious and paired well with wine with the fabulous service from John R.
Did I mention it was very reasonably priced too??
I'm happy to recommend this place whole heartedly for anyone looking for group booking
