I really liked it, the location is great and the food was delicious. However our reservation table was not respected and the waiter who attended us was a little condescending which wasn’t so nice

The quality of steak is top. Although we heard a lot of nice things about this place before the dinner, we are still amazed with high standards of meat we received.

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!

Very noisy, and service could be much better. Explications for the menu were not very clear and we were Vero disappointed at the end. Does not worth the price. Thanks

Everything was absolutely perfect. The service is Michelin star quality. Nicole made us feel like royalty and family at the same time. It’s one of the best restaurants in the city from food, service, and wines.

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.

It was ok but missed my expectations. I knew I was going to spend a lot but I expected better. Food was nothing to write about for the cost. The wine I ordered was eh for the incredible mark up. Waiter was gruff not in a good entertaining way and not very attentive. I don’t mind the cost but when the gap between price and quality experience is so wide I don’t feel great about it.
