I had the Cobb salad for lunch I would highly recommend this for a filling and low calorie meal.

Food was excellent as was the service *
Was a little on the noisy side .....
My only complaint was when I made my reservation I requested a window table with THE view
that did not happen..... Ambiance was a very important factor in choosing Porter House so a little disappointed.
Overall it was very good

The T bone Porter House is a must! Slightly noisy when crowded but overall it’s acceptable.

My boyfriend and I came here for our Valentine’s Day dinner. I thought the food was great! I ordered the filet Mingon with a side of onion rings, both were excellent. For dessert, I got their special cookie assortment, which was okay. I thought it would be a bit better. Overall though,I was impressed. My only complaint was that we weren’t seated until after our reservation time, and they don’t have a waiting area (other than the bar which was filled.) I would definitely eat here again and recommend to others

This was our Valentines Day/my 31st birthday dinner and it’s unfortunate I have to report such a negative experience. We were seated in the far back corner and essentially ignored by our server (Chris?) for the entire meal. Quite literally, he brought us the wine menu and we did not see him again until he brought us the dessert menu. Almost an hour into the meal and we hadn’t placed an order for anything. If it wasn’t for the sommelier, Laura (who actually took our order after we complained), I don’t know that we’d ever have been served. She was amazing and very informative, by the way, and helped salvage at least a portion of the night. Despite the negative experience up to that point, we decided to still order desserts/drinks because of the occasion. The first drink I ordered was out of stock, understandable. Chris then suggested two other alternatives which I took him up on and both alternatives he reported back that they were also out of. Incredible. After the meal, we complained politely to management and they very mundanely expressed regret but offered nothing else. Again, disappointing considering the occasion and the fact that even so we spent over $500 between two people. I will say the food was good but this is New York and a good steak can be found elsewhere. And this would be my suggestion to you...plenty of other options in the city that I would recommend trying before Porter House. Hope this helps!

The staff is always lovely but the nicest part was that they put us at the table that I requested. I’m not a regular but was treated like one. We tried to return the next evening but could not be accommodated as it was a busy Saturday night and will definitely return soon

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary and asked for special seating in our Open Table reservation.
Our seating was exactly what we hoped for with view of Central Park and cityscape. Service was excellent and Mr. Tim Brown came by to check on our dining experience multiple times.

We had the filets with brussel sprouts and baked potato. Perfectly cooked and enjoyed everything making it a special celebration.
We were surprised by our complimentary dessert for our special night of Red Velvet cake and cookies. We will look forward to our next visit.

We highly recommend this restaurant for those wanting to be delighted.

Steak was nice. Sides were great. Service was truly awful. Our waitress didn’t even come by our table for 15 minutes to take a drink order, never checked in to see how we were doing and spent most of her time by the computer, chatting with the other servers. A second drink never showed up and only arrived when we flagged down a different waiter, who brought it out. Making all of this worse was that the restaurant was not at all busy. Maybe 15 tables total when we sat down and 5 when we left, so there’s really no excuse for that level of poor service at a restaurant with those prices. The bread guy however was on his game.

Poor service. Waited 30 minutes for ordering drinks. Had to ask for silverware and the food was lukewarm. Not a memorable meal.
Great disappointment. Hire staff who actually want to work for a living.

A classy, stylish restaurant that did not dissapoint. Everything was perfect, right down to the finest detail. We requested a table by the window online. It was available for our arrival. The staff were were busy attending to our every need. The fillet steak was out of this world. We will definately return.

Thank you.

Porterhouse is a beautiful, very adult dining experience. The views of central park, the white glove service and the delicious seafood towers and steak are all on par for a high end NYC restaurant. And did I mention the yummy bread and desserts!

Food was excellent, but service was not. We waited about 5 minutes and the server still did not notice that we were done with our meal-- and we even stacked the plates and all-- and we would have had to wait longer if I did not call for the server's attention. The ladies next to us also had to call for the server's attention to get the check.
