A Happy Customer ​ -  Wedding Party in April 2016
The party was wonderful. The venue is perfect for the number of people we had (110 guests). The long tables allowed people to sit in small or large groups, and left enough space for them to move around easily. The service and food were excellent and the staff very attentive and cooperative. All in all, it was a great success!

Thank you for all your help and flexibility in planning the evening.   

Carmen Dueck, Integrative ​ - Company Party in March 2016
For three years in a row we have reserved the loft at Al Porto restaurant for our annual staff party.  We are an office of 25-30 employees and it is really difficult to find space to accommodate this large group.  We always want to enjoy not only a luxurious and delicious dinner but a decent cocktail hour prior to the dinner where everyone can mingle.  The loft gives us that freedom.
​Al Porto has accommodated our various requests from bringing in a blackjack table and dealer for our casino night to allowing us to mix up the menu in this time of dietary restrictions.  The staff is fabulous, attentive, and supportive as we tend to fill the night with speeches, games, and prizes, all of which are conducted at a high decibel, and the dinner is coordinated beautifully around all of it.  The loft gives us our privacy to full enjoy the night and not worry about affecting others’ dining experience. 
​Last weekend’s party was no exception as the night went off without a hitch, many thanks to all that contributed to our night!  We hope to see you all again next year.
