    By making a reservation through open table we got our table on time I even changed my reservation from 2 to 4 persons and had no problem. The food and the service was excellent. When we got our table we were waited on right away our food was served fast and our drinks were kept full without looking for service. This was a very good experience. Thank you open table.

    Even with a reservation, we were seated at the last open table in the middle of the main dining area. It was crowded and the hostess had to ask other guests to move in their chairs to allow us to be seated. Service was great and food very good - what we have come to expect from Porterhouse.

    The food was excellent! Chicken Florentine and Rib Eye was great. Our host was very attentive. In the Special Instructions I said it was our 46th anniversary thinking we would maybe get a free dessert but was never mentioned. :( Overall very pleased!! Will definitely be back and will pass the word on to our friends. Thank you.

    over all food are very good, server was excellent, but my rib'eye steak was over cooked when I made a point that it should be cooked to the degree of doneness in(BLUE), it was more like in medium rare with a warm center. It was four of us in for a very special celebration and the tap was in the $300 by the end of the night. I will go back again and hope the chief will cook my steak to the right temperature on our next visit.

    We went to Porterhouse for our anniversary. We arrived when it opened on a Saturday. The food was outstanding (shrimp apps, ribeyes, scallops). We also enjoyed the desserts (cake and creme brulee). Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. It was quiet and private when we arrived and was fairly full when we left, but it never seemed too loud or crowded. I would recommend getting a booth. Budget wise, we couldn't go there very often, but the portions are good sized and we brought home leftovers. Overall, we had a great evening and it will be at the top of our list for future special occasions.

    Food here is always fantastic from steaks to fish and Ahi appetizer. Upon entry the restaurant is beautiful and this flows into the bar area, which it nicely lit. Unfortunately, the decor and ambiance don't seep into the seating area, it is very bare except for the fireplace and a bit noisy. You'd expect a nicer dining room for the price as food is bit steep for a suburban restaurant. We dine here because it's close to home and food is always great. If they changed the restaurant ambiance to match the quality of food, we would dine here a lot. Service is always good and wine list is very nice. Great place to hang at the bar and have appetizers.

    It was our second time at PorterHouse in Lakeville. This place has a very eclectic mix of clientele; from folks in camo, henleys and jeans, to those dressed up in sport coats and eveningwear for a special dinner. Food was just OK. Service was very good. We may be back but it's not high on our list of go-to restaurants.

  • Disappointing Birthday Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/24/2014
    Service was good the food was not the best. We started with the Bacon Wrapped Scallops for our appetizer and they were fantastic. It was down hill from there. My wife and I ordered the Black and Bleu Ribeye. It took almost an hour to get our steak. We saw multiple tables around us that were seated well after us served before we were. When our server finally realized that we hadn't received our meal he checked with the kitchen and they had forgot about us. In turn they rushed the steak out and it was undercooked. They attempted to correct it but then it was very overcooked. We were offered a free desert for our trouble, but I was getting that for my birthday anyway. We didn't complain at all, but our experience was disappointing.

    Early to our reservation, we were still promptly seated! Our server was pleasant and injected her personality into her service, so that is always nice. It was a nice way to celebrate a birthday--though, I'm not sure I would go back for just a random night out unless we went to the bar side. The food was very well prepared overall, though the chowder was a bit over-peppered and the bread was though it had been pulled from a fridge (why not take a minute a warm it?). The carrot cake is wonderful, even if they don't make it on-site. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the decor is a bit random. Kind of like this review! :) Overall, a good experience that didn't require a trip downtown.

    We chose Porterhouse for a special dinner with our former neighbors who remain good friends. We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer, the combination dinner with the 9 oz fillet and scallops, and the creme brulee. The food and service were excellent. We also had a Manhattan and Martini before dinner. The drinks were OK, but seemed a little "watered" down.

    Our anniversary dinner opportunity had us searching for someplace new and special. We had considered Porterhouse for our groom's dinner, a few years ago, but decided on a different locale. This year's visit was going to be a special adventure, but it turned out less than good. We made a reservation, but were made to wait for 30 minutes on arrival. My wife's steak was heavily salted, and her vegetable was oily from cooking oil. My walleye was flavorless and disappointing. Several peripheral things were great, including the creme brulee, carrot cake, bread basket, wine and my frozen drink, but it was the dinner of a quality in keeping with the price we were paying which brought us to Porterhouse. We might stop in for dessert some day.

    They do everything the right way there. Friendly and knowledgeable service. Drinks made by a professional. The meats are from the best cuts, and prepared just like one wants them. The overall experience was excellent, and consistent with our prior experiences for dining there. I hate to label it a "10", but that's what it gets as we have not had a bummer episode there.
