    My husband and I had a fantastic meal here on our honeymoon. The restaurant is not cheap, but is in a fantastic location if you are splashing out for a special occasion. The only bad point was an extremely grumpy looking maître d, who seated us at a rubbish table albeit we were there pre-theatre and the restaurant was almost empty. She did not smile the whole evening, as far as we could see. However, the service from our waiter and the other staff was excellent, and we were moved to a window table after asking. The food could not be faulted.

    We reserved for a birthday dinner and asked for a window table via Open Table comments. The request was ignored but the evening was great. The food was delicious and the steaks cooked to perfection. The service in this place is impeccable. They even wrote Happy Birthday on the dessert plate without us asking. We never felt rushed and had a wonderful evening.

    where to take my parents visiting from the UK and a friend who is meat focused visiting from Beijing.. well Porterhouse of course. Perfect for a Sunday lunch overlooking the park with great service and huge steaks with fabulous flavours cooked perfectly. I always think the key to a great steak house is great sides and they have those in abundance! Can't wait to visit again.

    From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were VIP customers. It was late so we were lucky to get seated by the window with a great view of Columbus Circle and when the host sat us down he pointed out the various buildings of interest that we could see. The service and the food was excellent and we never felt rushed during the whole experience. Everyone loved their meals which consisted of filets, the cowboy ribeye, scallop appetizer, risotto, and truffle mashed potatoes. The dessert menu had some excellent selections, however we were all too full to try any. I would definitely come back to the porter house New York again!

    Took forever for service; our waiter never cracked a smile; we learned there were specials over our dessert when he recited them to the table behind us; hostess argued about seating us away from a wait station even though half the place was empty and we'd requested a quiet table in our Open Table reservation; the macaroni and cheese and the mashed potatoes were flavorless; had to request steak sauce, which is listed on the menu b/c waiter never asked which we'd like; steak was fine with the Burgundy sauce, as was the Caesar salad but our table was dirty (some table have white cloths while others don't--couldn't figure that out).

    We chose to dine here for the first time before a broadway show. The location was perfect and in walking distance to the theater (a great way to work off huge the portions of steak) and all I can say is truffle mashed yukon golds! Everything was wonderful, from the pre-dinner cocktails to the crab cake and beef tartare appetizers, all the way to the precise temperatures of the filet mignon and cajun ribeye. I would recommend making a reservation and request a window seat.

    I order a unique find: a Tavaligni Gattinara (Nebbiolo from Piedmont)from 1968. Noting that Italian wines of such age - and still good - are quite rare, the sommelier assured me that "if it is on the list, it is good." It wasn't, and he seemed miffed at my judgement.

    I loved the food- as usual but I was not quite happy with my table. Even though the restaurant was almost empty, there was a table in front of the window facing central park. I asked them if we could sit there (as we even wrote a note in our reservation and the hostess simply said she could not give that table to us.) The table remained empty the whole time. I am not sure if they always leave a table in case some VIP or celebrity comes over. Who knows?

    This is our 3rd visit since we stay in NY a few days for our anniversary each year ( We live on Long Island ) We are fortunate that out hotel is only a half block away and allows us a leisurely walk . The name of the restaurant is Porterhouse , so order one if you love steak. Otherwise , the menu has other items you will be more than satisfied with . The service is attentive but discreet and knowledgable.

    Seated behind a wall with no view, so I asked for different table. Place was mostly empty and was given a worse choice. Restaurant has panoramic views of skyline, but I was told I didn't reserve a table with a view. I think it's a no-brainier and part of the dining experience. Been here twice previously. It was my go-to place for steak. This time Bone-in Rib-eye sub par and tough, sides not as good as previous times where presentation was important. Each side arrived in a small plain bowl. On last visit, a wide array of sautéed mushrooms arrived on a small platter; made them look rustic. This visit, no fungi variety. Salmon and veggies good, fabulous martinis! I may recommend for ambiance, but I'm hunting for a new fave steakhouse in NYC.

    A good friend of mine from Ireland visited New York for the summer. I decided to take her to Porterhouse for a nice dinner just so we could spend some time alone together before she went back home. We had an 8pm reservation and the friendly hostess seated us promptly. We even got the window seat I requested when I made the reservation-beautiful views of Columbus Circle. Unfortunately I can't remember the waitress name but she was attentive and friendly the whole time. We had the porterhouse for2 medium rare and it was perfectly cooked, sliced, and seasoned. The bottom line here is that this was a very important night for me and I wanted to impress her. She loved the meal, we were both happy, everything went the way I wanted it to.

    Took advantage of the Restaurant Week Menu.Appetizers of gazpacho and Caesar Salad were very good.The steak and frites were fine, although the meat was a little chewy, but tasty.Dessert was their flourless chocolate cake and it was to die for.So rich and tasty.The wine list is pricey as with most steakhouses, but a few selections are available under $50.Service was okay, but certainly nothing special.Their regular menu is for those on a company expense account, as most steaks alone are in the $50-60 range, and side dishes are $12.One gets the feeling that they have two levels of service here.One is for the average person, and one is for the celebrities who often dine here.Not really anything special in a town with so many steak restaurants.

    The only positive part of this dining experience was the hostess - she was sincere, smart and friendly. Went for lunch on a Sunday - lasted nearly 2 hours due to slow service (and, no it was not full). The presentation of the oysters and clams was really simple and the quality was not great. The salad was overwhemingly dressed; the steak frites was a bad piece of sirloin cooked horribly. The fries were good. The chocolate cake tasted like it came from a microwave. Bad tanqueray/tonic for $13.00 each. The bread was literally thrown onto the plates. We had to pour our Pellegrino ourselves. The wait staff, at least for my table was bland and bad. I still tipped over 20%, G-d knows why!!!

    My party and I were immediately impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant. It was the type of place that made you feel on top of the world. The service was excellent, the wine was spectacular and the appetizers and salad were superb. However, being that this is a high-end steakhouse, we expected perfection with our main course. The french fries that accompanied the steak were great, but the steak was chewy and unsatisfying. This ruined the whole experience for us. The dessert could have been tastier as well. Had the latter end of our meal been better, we would return for a future visit.

    Our experience did not start out well from the start. Our conversation with the waiter started off with him asking us in a judgmental tone, "First time?" Yes, it was our first time at the restaurant, but really, what did that matter? We placed our order that included, sparkling water, 2 cocktails, 2 appetizers, porter house for 2 ($57 each) & creamed spinach. The waiter couldn't understand why we were not ordering a potato. He rattled off a few suggestions, we selected something else, (tots) & he said, "I told you to get that." What? We never saw him after dinner was served and was just handed off to another waiter w/ no explanation. Steak was mediocre, no "it" flavor that a pricey steak should have. Will not be back.
