Didn’t see waiter a whole lot, not very personable. Was not prepared for all of the bones in the walleye. My husband had to debone it for me. It tasted good, just wasn’t great to have to stop eating often to pick out bones.
Our whole expletive was great!
I'm never disappointed by the food; the service was a bit slow (which we can understand) but we were only checked on once and then not again until we got our bill so we didn't really have good chance to order a second drink before it was time to leave (and we would have gladly ordered another). Servers were pleasant as usual, I just wish there was an additional runner checking on things like additional drinks.
Porter Creek was amazing! The food, the service and the ambiance were fantastic! It was my first visit here and I was impressed with everything - especially when all the other restaurants in the area that are supposed to be ‘fine dining’ seem to be coming up short.
We had a party of four including a child. Everything was served fast, hot and presented well. Dessert and coffee was offered and served fast enough without us feeling that we were being rushed.
This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Fargo! I will recommend it to others and dine here again!
My Niece’s Birthday
All the food is superb. Delicious
Met with friends. Food was okay. Salmon portion/meal was very small for price. They removed a few items from menu recently including the Calamari( too bad, best Calamari we ever had) Overall, pricey evening for type of food we had. Won’t go back unless they bring back the Calamari!
We had specifically asked for a non-high-top table. The hostess did seat us at a booth after we mentioned again that we didn't want a high top (physical issues and prefer regular heights). Booths were empty, but it seemed like a big deal. ??? Our waiter/bar tender was friendly and attentive without hovering. Food was excellent!
Always good food and great service
Excellent food. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. Perfect. Same story as every other time I've been to PC and why I will return.
Took forever to get our appetizer… took even longer to get our entrees …the entrees were lukewarm at best … our waiter was a complete jerk … too bad … this could be a really awesome place to go if they could fix the issues
All around good dining experience.
Enjoyed our meal there.
Usually a favorite of mine in the Fargo area, however, they overcooked the steak to medium when I asked for Medium Rare. Everything else was good!
First Time in Fargo. The food at Porter Creek was outstanding. Huge kudos to kitchen staff!I had the capellini with tomato and rotisserie chicken
Our server Rosie was the best - spot on with recommendations such as tomato basil soup, three tomato bruschetta and creme caramel cheesecake.
We loved this wood fired grill. Our server David was attentive and gave recommendations. We had the salmon and scallops, both were excellent. The wine list was moderately priced with a nice selection. We ate indoor, but the outdoor bar area was very welcoming with a little creek flowing in the back. Next time, we will request to be seated out there if weather permits.
I had so much fun yesterday
Seated in the bar… noisy..
Our meal was very good and the service in the back bar area was outstanding! We were most pleased with our dining experience!
Wonderful host and wait staff, very attentive. Food ordered by our party (hangar steak, salads, walleye fingers, wine) was good, but definitely not exceptional. Nice, ambient atmosphere for indoor dining, but background music was not as subtle as it could have been. Sometimes silence in between rock music is very much appreciated.
We got there before our reservation (15 minutes early) time so they told us we would have to wait for them to set up our table. So she checked me in and we waited. Then another person at the front desk asked if we had been waited on and I repeated the fact that we had a reservation for 6 and one was a toddler and we would need a high chair. So he told us we were checked in and said we would have to wait to be seated closer to our reservation time. Which was about 12 minutes. Then we waited for a total of 20 minutes and I asked why we hadn’t been seated yet and so they decided they could seat us. ( I guess they were waiting for wait staff to show up) they had our reservation mixed up with someone else in a party of 9. We needed a table for six one chair being a high chair. Still didn’t have that at our table. Then the girl told me they didn’t have a reservation for me. After two people already checked me in!! I was about ready to lose it. Clearly these kids had no clue what they were doing. I would say poor management. Probably will avoid going there in the future. Our food was good but service just wasn’t the best.
Nice place. Love their appetizers. Artichoke dip is the best.
Great meal - my son thoroughly enjoyed the strip steak and the salmon I had was outstanding!
The fettuccine Alfredo was very watery. The scallops were lukewarm, as was the accompanying cauliflower hash, which was poorly prepared. That being said, our waitress was attentive to the issue & the manager on duty adjusted our bill and offered apologies. I’ve enjoyed my lunches at PC, but this dinner meal was definitely lacking.
It took awhile for our server to take our order first and then to run our payment on our bills. He kept up with the drinks very well though!
The chicken quinoa salad was very fresh but I was confused by the flavors represented in the dish itself. The vinaigrette took out the freshness of the ingredients and was very overpowering.
Otherwise our server was very kind and the ambiance was perfect!
Your hostesses were also wonderful as well!!!
The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the the New York Strip and the Pork Chop, both were prepared perfectly. We enjoyed the patio, which never disappoints. Our only note would be that drinks from the bar took a while for us to get, but it was busy. Always a wonderful meal here.
Met friends for lunch. Good food, but not much ambience. However, We ask for a specific area.
I had the walleye and it was phenomenal! The potatoes and steamed veggies were s perfect accompaniment. The sauce on the walleye was also perfect and had just the right amount of flavor to make it a wonderful addition to the flavor. My husband had the broasted chicken which he devoured. The portions were very generous. In fact, I was able to bring half of mine home to have another meal.
This is a place that cares about the customer’s experience! Greeted with warmth and smiles, found our reservation with no fuss and made us feel welcomed. Given choices for seating and when we chose the option that was least available they didn’t hesitate to assure us they could accommodate us no problem. Menu was diverse, creative and fairly priced. When asked if they could accommodate speak dietary needs they offered options clearly and professionally. Food arrived quickly and portion sizes were VERY generous (good thing as we were hungry!). Drinks were replenished as needed and not more (I hate to waste food or beverage so I appreciated their “Goldilocks” touch here. Several people checked in with us throughout our meal, inquiring if everything was ok. I liked their team approach. You can see them hard at work in the kitchen through the glass wall and we noticed so much effort and focus on the cooking and plating. It was impressive. These folks obviously have a passion for food, their customers and one another.
Ryan was our server and took care of us in phenomenal style. Hand stuffed blue cheese olives for our martinis and very attentive. Food was out of sight. Great steaks cooked perfectly and walleye fingers and wings were some of the best apps I e ever had. Thanks!
When your really busy, don't seat customer's in a section and not tell the server. Food and drink were fast though.
Everything was great!
Waitress was very nice and friendly.
The food was was very good and presented very well.
A great value for the money!
Great food as always! It was busy and service was still great.
My steak was average. For being the most expensive food item, I was hoping it would be more tender. The salmon was very good and my kid thought that pasta and cheese was extra cheesy.
The Frenched Pork Chop is so good and the Gorgonzola burger was perfect!
Porter Creek is one of our regular places to eat out. We were glad to see the larger menu back.
Excellent service! Tuesday is half price wine!
Good food, friendly service and cozy booth overlooking the kitchen. We will visit next time we are in town.
