Holiday Specials

The whimsical, yet elegant restaurant of Noble House Hotels & Resorts.

Nationally renowned for its light mood and serious food, the all-new BALEENkitchen in Redondo Beach, California brings an eclectic, eccentric fine dining experience to The Portofino Hotel & Marina with monkeys hanging from chandeliers, and a perfect Pacific Ocean backdrop to the seafood-centric menu.

Enjoy dining outside on the patio overlooking the marina with dramatic drapery and fire pits. Inside, the motif is balanced with dark wood flooring and accents. The upstairs bar offers a cosmopolitan-lounge vibe, with fireside sofas and chairs, and a cocktail list using fresh juices, hand selected herbs and premium liquors to create food-friendly drinks that perfectly complement the acclaimed menu.
