    I took my husband to Porter House New York for his birthday this past Sunday and everything from the food to the ambiance was just amazing. Their wine list to their variety of food were on point. I went with my husband and some of our friends and the staff were behind accommodating and patient as a few people from our party ran a little late. I would definitely reccomend this restaurant to friends as I have already started doing so. Thank you Porter House New York for an amazing experience. My husband and friends truly enjoyed themselves!

    Arrived and were immediately told table wasn't ready and pushed to the bar. I know this is a technique some places use to boost the bar bill. We waited for our waiter to finally acknowledge us. Not a good start. However he was attentive and put us at ease. We naturally ordered beef. I had the filet and my wife had the "special" porterhouse. The steaks were good but nothing special. Same for the sides. Dessert was the vest part. The coconut cake was the best we've ever had. All in all it was an enjoyable meal but not worth the outrageous prices.

    We knew we were in for a treat as soon as we tasted the breads! Unlike some NY steak houses, someone is clearly paying attention to the details in the kitchen. Plus you get great service. Plus many tables have a knockout view. My wife doesn't eat beef, but I dragged her here anyway. She was very pleased with the vegetable and seafood options, and enjoyed her meal completely. I eat beef. Oh, boy! Sure, it's pricey. But if you are in the market for a splurge, you won't regret Porter House.

    Convivial atmosphere without being too noisy; service was efficient and friendly, though enquiry if they had non gluten bread was dealt with a little brusquely and surprisingly they had none. The food was excellent and plentiful as was the wine. The price was full but worth it given we had an enjoyable evening out.

    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.

  • A Cut Above the Steakhouse Crowd

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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!
