The service was warm, welcoming and extraordinary in some respects. Notably, the service here had what so few restaurants now have... There was someone at your side exactly when you needed him/her. There were few/no interrupts during the dinner - to our conversation or peace. Do you know how amazing that is these days?!!!

Of course, the food was extraordinary. And the view spectacular.

I'd recommend this place to either visitors to the city, steak lovers, and/or couples who don't mind spending for the experience. :-)

We’ve been a couple of times now and it’s clearly becoming our go-to steak place when we’re in the Columbus Circle area. It’s pricey - but all NY steak houses are.

Porter House is the place to go for the food and the views! The wine list is spectacular and the selection of food is perfect for meat lovers! The views of Columbus Circle is breathtaking anytime of day or night! Nestled in the Time Warner Building, it's the pinnacle of the upper west side of Manhattan!

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Porter House Bar and Grill. Excellent service. Ambiance is elegant but not stuffy. The aged Prime Rib was one of the best we've ever eaten! Salmon cooked to perfection. This was our 2nd time dinning here and we will definitely return on future trips to NYC.

The chili steak was arguably the best steak sauce/rub I’ve tasted. Carmelized, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, perfect.

The buratta salad was also delicious, and the Jack Daniels was . . . Jack Daniels. All great. Thanks n

In more than 50 years of dining in restaurants around the world this was the first time that I had the sommelier right off the bat recommend a bottle of wine for $495.00 without even asking about our preferences. When I asked the maitre d' about that he said that the sommelier was supposed to recommend one high priced bottle, one medium priced bottle, and one reasonably priced bottle. Thing was that on the wine list $80 was about the minimum price for a bottle of cabernet. I got the distinct impression that the sommelier received a commission for selling the extremely high-priced wine.

Food and service were excellent. Restaurant is located in a mall, so it has that vibe. Lots of families with young kids and some screaming babies. Not great ambiance for a date night, but the food was very good.

We had a lovely pre-theatre dinner here. We started with the lightest appetizer - delicious and spicy hamachi crudo- followed by the richest appetizer - a marrow bone served with chanterelles... the definition of umami. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the black truffle mashed potatoes had real black truffles, not that unctuous fake truffle oil. The wine list was good and several servers and the sommelier engaged with us on our choice of a Vacqueyras, which was new to the menu (and there was no snobbery about choosing one of the cheaper bottles on the list).

Although the food was excellent, service was very slow and the noise level of the entire restaurant was way too high. Very difficult to carry on a conversation. And I asked for a quiet table in my reservation.

Definitely an off-night for my favorite restaurant in New York City. Bourbon mashed potatoes were liquid and with a heavy pour. Salad saturated in dressing. Fish special beyond a disappointment. Will certainly go back though. LOVE this place and was so disappointed, but keeping the faith!

I'm lucky to live nearby and choose this restaurant often. For a leisurely meal I dine in the main dining room and a pre-Lincoln Center performance a quicker meal at a booth in the bar area. The service is impeccable...can't get any more professional and the food is always fantastic. Steak or rigatoni bolognese or a seafood plateau....you could throw a dart on anything on the menu and no matter what you choose, it will not disappoint. It's a home run no matter what the occasion.

The food and ambiance were wonderful. We went for my boyfriend's birthday, because what guy wouldn't appreciate a delicious steak meal?

Our only issue occurred when our server's shift ended. I heard her explaining the states of her tables to the section manager before she took off for the night. After that point, we were completely ignored, making it so that we had to flag down a new server every time we wanted a water refill, dessert menu, and even the check. In each of these instances, the new server gestured and asked other surrounding servers if we were their table, and it seems that we weren't. In the end, it seems like we were just never assigned a new server, a huge oversight on the shift manager's behalf.
