I'm hoping to get booked in to Portofino's next week on the Voyager for my birthday. I'll let you know when I return.

Yes Portofino and Chops are well worth the $20.00 pp price. Not only is the food better, the service is better too. Your dinner is prepared "a la minute" not mass prepared like in the dining room.

Look at this page to see recent menus for Portofino's and Chops. They menus should be the same regardless of the ship. The linked page also has main dining room menus for comparison

The service is better, and the food is definitely better - more like a restaurant and less like the dining room food that was prepared for 2,000 other guests. We like the specialty restaurants on the last night of the cruise.

Sonya,
The question is do you like and pay for fine dining when you are NOT cruising ? If you do, then no question, the money is well worth it. If you don't enjoy fine dining or don't like paying for it....you will enjoy the food prepared elsewhere on the ship. Chops and Portofino's is NOT for everyone, amke the decision on what YOU like.
