    Every dish exceeds expectation. I love the Cowboy Rib Steak (dry aged and wonderful). There is a great selection of large and smaller dishes including delicious foods that are not beef including an excellent salmon. The atmostphere is warm and inviting. The staff have an uncanny way of making you feel very well cared for and personalize the experience. Alex the GM is charming and sees to it that guests feels very much at home.

    We went to celebrate my father's birthday and it was perfect for that occasion. The service was very good, but I was most impressed with the sommelier. The salads, shrimp cocktail, steaks, home fries, and pasta with the bolognese sauce were all fantastic and well proportioned. The salmon was very good, but I've had better. The atmosphere was my favorite part of the experience -- beautiful, comfortable, and perfect for enjoying conversation with family.

    I was asked to find a steak house restaurant to help my brother celebrate his birthday. The other challenge was three folks in our party wanted to have a NY experience and shop. Thank goodness for Porter House NY. As the restaurant is located in the Time Warner Center, the shoppers were thrilled. My brother the steak lover, ordered the NY Strip and fell in love with the place. As he is does not live in NY , he is already planning his next trip in. The food was great, the wine list excellent, lots of choices (pocket book wise), everything we had was wonderful. Please---save room for dessert, the South Carolina Coconut Cake is amazing! You will not regret it.

    I've eaten here once before and had one of the best steaks I have ever had. This time I cant say it was quite as good. Not bad by any means but for $55 for just the steak you expect outstanding and I expect to give it 5 stars. This time 4 will have to do. The rest of the meal, wine and service were great but of course your here for the steaks. The others at my table concurred with my opinion. I'll give it another change and see how the two out of three works out.

    My steak was cooked to perfection, the chop salad was bland, the hash browns were mediocre and the coconut cake was blah. I went for the steak, so I can't complain, but for the price, the rest of the food should have been memorable. The service was outstanding, the facility was clean and comfortable.

    I got the prix fix menu with steak and fries. It was tough. My companion got a hamburger and fries. He felt that the hamburger was just average. The fries that came with the hamburger were real potatoes. The ones that came w the prix fix menu seemed reconstituted and flavorless. We were expecting to get a better quality meal.

    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?
