A word from Maloney & Porcelli
Maloney & Porcelli is a clubby new American restaurant that draws inspiration from a simpler time when three martini lunches were alive and well, steak was for dinner, and servers anticipated guests’ every need, even completing dishes tableside. Begin meals at Maloney & Porcelli with a selection of shellfish, salads or favorites such as Baked Clams Orsini, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Tartare that is finished tableside. For the main course, there is a choice of steaks and shanks, including the famed Crackling Pork Shank with Firecracker Applesauce, lobsters and composed options such as Chicken Under a Brick, Pan-Seared Atlantic Salmon, or Beef Shortrib Stroganoff. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Broccoli and Pimento Cheese. The desserts inspire nostalgia with a individual red velvet cake served, grasshopper pie for two, and a selection of house-made sorbets, sherbets and ice creams.

    I've eaten at Maloney & Porcelli before and have enjoyed it. This time, I feel they really cut the portions for Restaurant Week, it wasn't the same. Not sure if I'll return again during restaurant week.

    My wife and I had a gift certificate for Maloney & Porcelli's that we used while in NYC for our anniversary and her birthday. All my requests were met & they even brought us 2 glasses of champagne at 2 separate occations on the night to celebrate. Food was great, i had the fillet mignon and my wife had the halibut. Service was great! Ambiance was loud and not quite romantic, but the waiter sure made you feel like you were celebrating a special night. At the end of the evening, the waiter came up to our table and stated "Congratulations on your special evening, we have waived the drink order on your bill for the night." That was not expected but extremely appreciated. Our experience was an enjoyable one! Thanks M&P for a great night!

    The salad dressing had no zing and fresh pepper was never offered. I felt abandoned. By contrast, the next day I had lunch at Porter House where service was what one would expect and the salad dressing had a zing. The entrees at both restaurants were done nicely but at these prices there is no reason for settle for less than everything.

    It cetainly was not a properly served wine dinner. The wine service was very poor. We were asked if we wanted white or red. What kind of a question is that when the wine is to be served in pairings along with the food courses. The waiter was surprised tht we wanted white and both reds. Nothing like the old Cite, nothing like any wine dinners we have attended before. Much room for improvement.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    What an outstanding business lunch spot. My two clients and I had the Pork Shank, the tuna, and a rib steak. All were perfectly prepared. Service was not steakhouse rude, the staff was friendly, and very attentive -- without being overbearing. Nice young guys in matching jackets and ties taking care of the tables politely and efficiently, with a little personality thrown in, thats just as it should be. The portions are so large that, other than a simple salad, appetizers are not necessary. The house wine selections were very good and the bar drinks as large as the portions. I cant say a single negative comment about this place. I dont mind paying a premium for something special. This time, when that big check came, I was happy to pay it.

    Terrific!! We had the Wine Dinner, and it was outstanding!! The Reds left something to be desired, but the White wine and the Champagne were fantastic!! And my sister said that she's never had a steak cooked to such perfection before!! My starter was a New England Clam Chowder, and I really enjoyed it, while my sister had the Caesar Salad, although she found the taste of anchovies in the dressing to be a bit overpowering. We both had the Fillet Mignon for our main course and we shared the whipped potatoes and mushrooms for sides - the steaks were absolutely fabulous, and we couldn't finish them, they were so huge! For dessert I had berries, and my sister had the Creme Brule! Truly an unforgettable meal and the service was impeccable!

    Had a terrible experience. A woman at the next table became ill and was escorted out of the restaurant. Another vomited on the stairs, and my colleague and I both felt sick. I spoke with the manager, suggested that they might have an issue with food poisoning, and she dismissed it, offering only an ambulance to us if we felt sick. Overall an irresponsible reaction to what may have been a very serious problem.
