Porter's Steakhouse - Collinsville Ratings and Reviews
Whereas the food was delicious (except the dessert), service was awful. Our server, Christian, acted as if we were a burden. Everything he did for seemed very rushed, even as he spouted off the evenings specials. The food itself was very good, but he wouldn’t know that because he never even checked back. In fact, the only person that asked how our meal was during the meal was he wine steward. The manager did ask how it was when he was clearing our table because the server never came to clear our plates. We had to ask for a dessert menu, which took at least 3-4 minutes to produce. Once we had it and decided what we wanted, it took forever for him to come back and take the order. In fact, my wife talked herself out of the cheesecake because of the wait. We ordered the bread pudding and it took nearly 20 minutes to arrive and was cold. When we “made contact” with Christian and asked if it was supposed to be cold, he said “Nope. But the salad/dessert guy is busy so I’ll take it off the bill.” He didn’t seem to care at all or apologize that his table didn’t get the dessert made properly. In my opinion, if you are going to spend upwards of $100 on a meal for two, it doesn’t matter how great the food is the service has to match that greatness, which it did not. In totality, we spent nearly 2 hours at a dinner that could’ve been closer to an hour and 15 min, almost $100 after the dessert was taken off, and poor service. We decided that we can go to many other establishments and get just as great of food for a similar price but with great service.
The entire experience was exceptional. Our waiter, Chris, couldn't have been more knowledgeable or more helpful. The wine steward, as always, was superb. All other members of the dining room staff couldn't have been more perfect as well.
And as always, the food was all we've come to expect from Porter's. Three of the four of us ordered pork chops, which were among the best any of us has ever enjoyed, and was complemented perfectly with the side of Brussels sprouts. The fourth member of our party ordered the pepperloin, which was prepared to its usual perfection. She found the accompanying sauce to be thinner in consistency than in past visits, but its flavor was spot on.
Yet another satisfying visit to the finest restaurant in the Metro East!
The steak (pepperloin and filet) was overpriced for quality and preparation. Better preparation for the cost at Tony’s in Alton or Bella Milano. Food came out warm, but looked like it was sitting under heat lamp. Waiter had 4 tables and then a customer sat elsewhere was not happy with their sitting and were moved to our waiters area. Things began falling apart. People next to us didn’t get bread and our steaks sat. The waiter should have had more support to keep service from suffering. Also, salads were over dressed and should offer a half or side salad. Salads were too big and not something that holds up well to take home.
This was our 1st experience at Porter's. We heard good things about the restaurant. We came to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance & service was great, the food was mediocre. My husband and I both ordered the pepperloin. It was Luke warm and did not have much flavor. I thought with it being marinated for 48 hours, it would taste awesome. That was not the case. When food is to be served hot, I really want it hot or at least, nice & warm. What a turn off. It's hard to mess up a baked potato & it was adequate, but could have been a little warmer also. I had the caesar salad, but it was not much to my liking. I also didn't care for the Dijon butter or sun-dried tomato butter. The bread was some sort of Herb bread, but was at least warm. My husband had a sliver of bone, as sharp as a needle in his tenderloin, but didn't make a fuss about it, except to show the waitress, and she didn't make a fuss about it either. You'd think she would have at least sent the manager or chef out to apologize, but no, nothing. We can say, we've been there, done that. Also, very over priced for the so-so food.
Our anniversary dinner at Porter's was sumptuous. I have never eaten a better salad than the Porter's house salad. It was creative, tasty and almost a meal in itself. We had the flash fried calamari for an appetizer and they were very light and tender and the dipping sauce was delicious. I ordered the salmon and it was perfectly cooked. My husband had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, we were too full to partake of any of the desserts. Perhaps the next time.
At first we had a problem with how many people were supposed to be in the reservation but our waitress fixed it and everything went great. I thought it was a very nice place to eat excellent steaks serve the children well we had six and I party and I think everyone had a good time
We went to Porters for our 10 year wedding anniversary and my sons 9th birthday.
The service was excellent. The food was flawless.
They even offered to make my son a cheeseburger if he didn't care for anything on the menu.
Our steaks were perfectly cooked. Our server was outstanding. They also gave us 2 free desserts because it was such a special night.
We can't wait to go back. I would recommend Porters to anyone!
Just happened upon this place because of opentable. It lived up to the previous reviews. I was very glad for the quiet romantic setting on a Saturday night. I am expecting and have a very sensitive taste right now. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. Our server Chris was outstanding. And the wine tasting with Jeff was an unexpected surprise.
Husband loved to tenderloin. My strip steak with very very very dry, to the point I couldn't eat it. First time and last time, for $200 and still had to go home and make food.
Server was amazing best server I have had in this area in years. Staff was very polite, smiled and made small talk. Wonderful staff!
Classic steak house with excellent food, drinks, and service. Much more than I expected, and really outstanding compared to all the fast food, generic chains, etc. that surround it. Eating alone as a woman can be a mixed bag, but my waitress was great -- friendly but professional. Ambience is nice too, quiet, masculine, tasteful. A gem!
The drinks were not out of line. The salads should have been included with the meal. The steaks were about double market value rates. In short, this restaurant has become expensive to the point of being not worth it. This has also been reported as such to Corporate to prevent other employees from making this expense. The food is not that bad, other than the sautéed mushrooms, which were like the B&B rubber mushrooms out of a can. Steak was good, Salads OK, just priced out of line with other private, upscale steak eateries.
We ordered the reputable pepperloin steak, which was the best steak we've ever eaten. The service was good but not notable stellar, and the prices were on par with the market. However, a fountain drink was 3.50, which was ridiculous. The restaurant even gave us a birthday dessert, which was the reason we went there.
The only negative aspect of the experience was the cobwebs around our booth on the back wall (even directly behind my head). We notified the manager, and he said that the cleaning company had just come the day before, so he was surprised. When I'm paying for a $100 meal, I expect every aspect of the experience to be without flaws.
we came for a quiet evening, the hostess later set 4 college girls next to us and they were terribly loud, i told the hostess why did you sit these girls next to us , she said she would tell them to be quiet, I said no please don't . i said it is not there fault there young people having fun , being young girls, I explained she made the mistake in placing them next to us .when there were other places available, no response, I walked away. later a waiter asked the girls to be quiet, embarrassing us . the food was good , waitress was good, hostess ruined our evening. that sucks because this is our go to place for special occasions .
