The food was delicious. I recommend the veal chop served in a pan, sliced with tasty onions.
The service was superb, always greeted like our friends returning for a visit.

Pretty good food, but honestly the sides were more interesting than my lobster or my wife's fillet. We've made better at home. We were seated at a not great table even though the restaurant was pretty close to empty when we arrived. Maybe you need to know people? Seems like we dropped $115/plate to have a distant view of central park. Also seems like a spot for bankers, lawyers, and old money, which, if that's your crowd, cool.

Porter House is a wonderful restaurant. It's generally thought of for fine dining because it is sophisticated and special. The decor is upscale and beautiful and the food is stellar whether you order any one of the steaks or go for the pasta or salmon or anything on that delicious menu. Sometimes I go for a less formal meal before going out and that's when I take advantage of either sitting at the bar or when I'm able to nab a booth in the front room by the bar. The burgers are some of the best in the city. I always enjoy Porter House! The service is respectful and impeccable.

If we buy waygu and ask for it rare, we expect it rare…premium cuts for premium bills with subpar taste, texture and flavor. Get someone new on the pass to check this.

This is a very pretty restaurant and the food, as always, was delicious. Just be aware that it is very pricey. If you are looking for a great steak dinner and cost is not a factor, then I highly recommend this place.

Outstanding from the check-in podium to the last bite of dessert. Everyone was polite and helpful, never rushed (during our nearly 3 hour meal). All of the food was perfectly cooked and wonderful. Well worth the car payment to visit. ;-)

So much to say. Big disappointments along the way. Bad seafood first. Rancid. Topped off with wrong bottle of Wine. All servers insisted it was a Montrachet. Not til your Wine Guy was topping off our glasses that I saw the label. BUSTED! This is not the PorterHouse that we so loved and enjoyed in past years. Shame on you!!!
Not the Wonderful Birthday Experience of Yore. Lying is unforgivable!!! Boo! Hiss!

The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. The salads, onion rings, bacon, bone marrow are all superb. The veal chop was my favorite. Certain bar items are horribly overpriced so although you would expect everything to be aligned a martini for $35 is obscene. Other cocktails were city average $18 - $20.
We have come several times and will come again.

They missed one of our appetizers, no big deal. The salads were great! Then our porterhouse steak came out with the wrong temperature twice. The manager happened to check on us and comped the steak very nicely. I finished my dinner while my wife waited for a new dish, which she ate by herself. They sent a dessert complimentary but strangely our server left and transferred the table to someone else without telling us. Overall a bizarre and disappointing meal. It was our tenth wedding anniversary and with two kids, our first night out since 2019. We had a good time, because we were together and could laugh about it, but very disappointing overall.

We made a reservation for five people for an early dinner as we wanted a table by the window. There were no tables for five but there was a nice table for eight people but they did not want to give it to us, they gave us a table without any view. During the whole time we were in the restaurant the table we wanted was unoccupied.

It is very annoying to know that a restaurant like this cannot satisfy the customer with something so simple.

Casual, yet elegant atmosphere combined with excellent service and delicious food. Our ribeye was outstanding, and our sides were delicious as well. High quality selection of wines. Service was great both for our meal and then with Marco at the bar, where we stopped for a nightcap and a chance to watch some amazing U.S. Open tennis onscreen . Overall, a great experience!
