BALEENkitchen BALEENkitchen, the Oceanfront restaurant at The Portofino Hotel & Marina, was recently awarded a Zagat rating as among the “Top 10 Best Restaurants for Waterside Dining in Los Angeles,” for the second consecutive year. Zagat, the world's leading provider of consumer survey for restaurants, ranked the restaurant ?extraordinary to perfect' in all categories; food, décor, service and cost. Zagat described BALEENkitchen as, “A ?lovely', ?soft'-lit dining room overlooking ?beautiful' King Harbor” and that “the marina sets a ?cozy' scene for ?well-prepared,' seafood- centric dishes." BALEENkitchen is perfect for rehearsal dinners, engagement parties and intimate affairs. Redondo Beach The Portofino is steps from the Redondo Beach Pier and a 27-mile oceanfront path. Complimentary bicycles are also available to cruise the beachfront from Palos Verdes to Malibu. As a Portofino guest, you are free to uncover the rich history of Redondo Beach. Or, soak in the energy of Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches. The area’s coastal atmosphere is wonderfully addictive, and certainly not easy to leave behind. Each guest room offers a private balcony with views of either the Pacific Ocean or Portofino Marina. Large, open windows allow guests to awaken to the sounds of seagulls, gentle waves, and sails flapping in the breeze.
Recommendations

The Ideal Place for a Scenic Outdoor Wedding, An Eventective User from Carson, CA

I highly recommend the Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club for a wedding and reception venue. It is very accommodating for different types of weddings, offering both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, both large or intimate. The hotel and meeting rooms themselves were magnificently designed and it is all set directly on the coast of the Pacific, which provides beautiful scenery in the background. My husband and I chose the Wedding Garden for our ceremony. It is a cozy, grassy area located between the hotel and the canal leading out from the marina, lined with huge palm trees and facing a mountainscape across the water. For our reception, we chose the Ocean Room, which is the smallest of the ballrooms, but has the best view of the ocean. Our guests were very pleased with the layout of the tables and dance area, never once complaining about tripping over each other or being crammed together during the meal. The staff was wonderful. They were laid-back and did their jobs well without imposing on the leisureliness of the reception celebration. I can't speak highlier of the caterers who provided a spectacular selection of delicious food served fresh and hot. While the Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club is a bit more expensive than other venues we looked into, the experience is well worth the cost. You can't put a price on the view of a beautiful sunset over the ocean and the occasional sighting of a sea lion frolicking in the waves as you commit your love to your soul-mate.
