The restaurant is having renovations. The ceiling was open above my seat, the walls were unfinished sheetrock. The noise level was more like a diner with lots of people in a event room being very loud. The waitress did the best she could. The food, charbroiled salmon and baked reddish had tasty spicing but was exceedingly salty. A little salty can happy, but this was more like someone miscalculated and doubled or tripled the intended amount of salt.
There was no value to the ambience, food or service. I won't go back.

The food is very good. Had a great waiter, a young man who has the abilities and personality of a much older and seasoned server. They were busy, the restaurant is well staffed and efficient and they accommodated people expertly. We do like to linger a little and enjoy one course before the second comes out, and that didn't happen. But, we understand the notion of turning the tables to accommodate more patrons. And, there was a rather big party in the private dining room that affected the timing. All good, and we will return.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
