When we arrived, we were not pleased with being seated so closely to a group of chatty women. However, the service was great! I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, as well.
Food and service were amazing. Chad, a veteran waiter was attentive and accommodating. Recommended excellent appetizers and was able to cater to a special needs diner without being overbearing. Excellent for a family dinner or date.
Wonderful experience! So much food for such a great price!
The food was amazing! The waiter was great!
My friend had veal parmigiana and I had the fried catfish, the veal was tender and the sauce was perfect. The fish was moist with a crispy batter and it was not greasy at all!!
I will definitely go back!
The portion sizes were huge, but the food was pretty bland.
The quality of food was fine. Good traditional NOLA cooking. It is unfortunate that for many small businesses today they continue to have staffing shortages in this restaurant. The waiter informed us early on that they were understaffed and to expect delays. So we picked meals that were simple and we really didn’t have to wait too long. Waiters seemed stressed and frustrated.
This was my first time at Porter & Luke's. I made a reservation for Father's Day. I selected Porter & Luke's because of the diverse menu. The menu seemed to have something for everyone. I was a little hesitant because the restaurant was located in a strip mall but I was pleasantly surprised. The portions were large but not over priced. The food was delicious, and the service was great. I would recommend.
From start to finish, the service and food were amazing. Chandler was excellent but others would check in on us as well. The food was delicious and, I feel, was appropriately priced. Atmosphere was a positive relaxing vibe. It had a bit of liveliness to it but yet still quiet to where you could have an intimate conversation.
The food was very good and the staff friendly and very helpful. A well established restaurant in Old Metairie worth a visit!
The food was good. The Blue crab dip was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant.
Last minute dinner with the family. Everything was great including the bar menu.
We have enjoyed the lunch several times. Dinner was ok. Soft-shell crab over done and dry. Gumbo was good. Veal was also overdone. Lunch salads are great. Service is good.
I think our waiter’s name was Colton.
He was the most superb young man I have had the opportunity to meet lately. No, I’m not his mother.
I was just pleasantly surprised by his professionalism, knowledge of the food and his kindness. You don’t see many people like him anymore. He will be successful at whatever he chooses in life.
It was my first time at this restaurant. I absolutely loved it! The service was excellent. The food - out of this world GOOD!
Food was good however the food order was extremely slow.
Our server was amazing. He knew the menu by heart and offered 5 star quality hospitality. His initial is C definitely tip him well!
Great food. 2nd time there
Soft shell crab pontrain is good
Met family for dinner. Wait staff was prompt, friendly and efficient. He was well-versed on the menu items and specials. Appetizers were served quicky as well as drinks. Entrees were served without a hitch and were very good. Ordered bread pudding for desert. Too large and too "packy" Needs some "fine tuning." Otherwise, a great meal. Plan to return and would recommend to anyone.
Our lunch was a wonderful experience the soup was fresh and the seafood was fresh and very flavorful
Greeted very nicely & seated quickly. Waiter attentive & answered all questions. Drinks came quickly w a glass of water. All food delicious. Corn & crab bisque was delicious as was the Eggplant Sophie & the Meatballs & pasta. Collin was our main waiter & he was very attentive. Several others stopped by our table to see if we needed anything.
Soft shell crab was not totally eatable. Pasta sauce was delicious. Crab dip was amazing.
Delicious as always!
Excellent service. Food good
Had dinner at the bar. Food came out quickly. Friendly staff
It was cool
Our table was ready when we arrived early. The service was outstanding. The tuna stack we ate as an appetizer was excellent! Our salads were good. I was disappointed in the white chocolate bread pudding. We enjoyed our experience and will go back.
Food was good and service was quick. Would definitely return.
Great waiter... Colin was vert knowledgeable about the menu and food was decent.
Food was very good but service was not. Overall a decent experience
Amazing food I ask for Chad for your server a large amount of food you can split Crab dip was a tan fried chicken is a tan do yourself a favor and experience amazing it is
We went for a date night, and it has always been on our list of places to eat. Great food, great experience, And great service
Great Crab Cakes. Nice place for dinner with friends.
Overall there were no major complaints, and it's a good brunch place if you're in the area. I wouldn't consider this to be a destination place, but it was still a nice spot to meet up with friends. The drinks are pretty tiny, but thankfully the plates were rather large. The menu was large with lots to choose from, and a lot of Southern staples. If you're the area, or you have a large party, this is a good weekend spot.
So glad restaurants are back open with social distancing and masks, of course. The food was very good and service friendly. We will be returning.
A reasonably priced restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere and appropriately spaced Covid environment. Service was great, food wonderfully prepared with gracious presentation. We definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Pleasantly surprised, The Tune Stack was great , should be offered as a entre. Really enjoyed the Eggplant Sophie. The Oyster BLT was really nice, an new Orleans specialty that few can actually pull off. Thank you staff for a very nice Friday night family dinner. We will be back with more friends
Really good menu selections, great brunch and specials are always nice.
Food is great. The service is friendly. The tables are well separated. I eat there frequently.
Excellent as always! Social-distancing is being practiced, masks worn properly by staff. Food delicious!
