    We went for lunch. Service was slow and fairly inattentive. My husband had a filet which he said was good, but not the best he ever had. He also had the appetizer salad which was sliced tomato with crumbled bleu cheese and thick cut bacon. This is an entree sized portion. I had the foie gras. This is impossible to get in California. And it was delicious. However, I would suggest they pair it with another type of bread. The brioche was a little too light and crumbly to support the foie gras. My veal chop was ok. You can get better at Gallaghers. Wouldn't knock myself out to go back.

    In my experience steakhouses - even the best - have loud crowded rooms with low ceilings that make them seem small, dark and suffocating. That is definitely NOT the case at Porterhouse whose large dining room has tiers to see the interesting street views around Columbus Cir & B'way. The great ambiance is matched by attentive and professional service from bus boy to sommelier, setting a terrific stage for excellent food. We started with the foie gras terrine (excellent but too cold) with cocktails (skip the $22 French 75), and shared the chopped salad (good), & the Porterhouse (which at $114 carried a bit of sticker shock but was delicious and perfectly cooked), leaf spinach, carrots & hash browns (all v. good). Coconut cake excellent.

    Reserved a table for 4 at the restaurant because it was highly recommended on line. The place was a bit difficult to find, no address number on the entrance to the mall.The interior was very welcoming. The filet I ordered came to the table cold.The waiter, aside from taking our orders, was not very attentive. Came to the table once to ask how everything was and at the end to bring the desert menu. I had also indicated on my reservation that we were celebrating a recent wedding and two of the diners were the new bride and groom. I had expected some special treatment at the end (some sweets brought to the table perhaps?).I would recommend the restaurant, but I believe the issue with the food being cold should be corrected.

    My son and I were going to the Met on Saturday Night and had 6:30 Dinner Reservations, despite the fact that he was about 15 minutes late, the staff was very accommodating. I mentioned to our server that we had an 8:30 show and they all made a concerted effort to serve us in an expeditious manner without making us feel rushed. On more than one occasion someone came over to make sure all was well. Everything was excellent, from the attentive service, to the food. I was very pleased with our dining experience and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good service, good food and good night out. The restaurant is a bit pricing, but you get what you pay for, and I have no regrets with our selection to dine at Porter House.

    I seriously considered getting the lobster, but my wife pointed out that it's a steakhouse. Good point. Maybe I've had a better steak somewhere, but I can't think of where right now. Perfectly prepared. A little noisier than I expected, but fortunately it wasn't that crowded. Service was excellent without any "hovering" by the wait staff. It's a shame we were in a bit of a rush to get to a concert, but they understood and helped us out as much as they could. Next time (soon) we'll make sure we have more time to enjoy ourselves.

    New Yorkers don't need to go to Brooklyn any longer for the best steak experience in the Tri-state region. This gem with the best views of any steakhouse in NYC, has steak offerings that are better than those offered at the old Brooklyn institution. Everything from start to finish is superb, with a staff that takes care of your every need.

    I brought beloved friends to the Porterhouse to celebrate a performance in which I took part at the Rose Theater. It was important that my treat was of the highest quality and I have had good times at the Porterhouse before. I noticed that our meats were all perfect. The duck steak is so very delicious and everyone else loved their beef. However, the vegetables were below standard and don't belong in a restaurant that is so potentially excellent. The sautéed spinach was left over...prepared in a gross fashion with large chunks of garlic all over the spinach (read Marcella Hazan for the right way to prepare this), and the Brussels sprouts were both soggy and burnt. Some more effort for the veggies and it would have been perfect.

    We celebrated my parent's 60th wedding anniversary at the Porter House. The service was exceptional, the food deliciously prepared and the view was beatiful. It exceeded our expectations for a NYC steakhouse. They were able to please our entire group ranging from 11 to 81 years in age. They treated us and my parents like royalty. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful evening. I look forward to dining there again.

    My husband and I had a wonderful lunch pre-ballet at the Porterhouse. We both had the prix fix lunch and we were amazed at both the quality of the food and the portions! The caesar salad was both zesty and creamy. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the peppercorn sauce was a wonderful addition...it was both subtle and powerful. The frites were crispy, not greasy. The desserts capped an amazing lunch. My husband had the cheesecake and I had the flourless chocolate cake. Wow is all we could say! The cake had a deep, dark chocolate taste with just the right amount of whipped cream. The cheesecake was a true New York experience. In addition to all the amazing food, the service was attentive and we felt very pampered! We will be back!

    I have eaten at just about every great steakhouse in NY. With a 26 Zagat food rating, I thought to try Porter House. First, even with a 3-week advance reservation specifically requesting a window table, they tried to seat us elsewhere. After waiting 30 minutes, we did finally get a window table but clearly they were not happy nor were they apologetic in any way. No big deal, I'm used to that. We ordered the porterhouse for two (a $120 steak!). My wife, who is an orthopedist as well as a veterinarian, took one look at the steak (which was supposed to be PRIME BEEF) and said this was cut from an old cow. When we tried to cut the slices, they were filled with gristle. You couldn't even cut it with a sharp steak knife! Go elsewhere for Steak!

    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.
