Overall good experience for a Saturday night...
Steaks and sides were all well-cooked except for watery creamed spinach Wait staff was limited and had to be called to table several times for water, bread., share utensils for sides and ..coffee service. It seemed food was dropped not served...
Nice room but felt like more catering house than fine steakhouse.

I made a reservation two weeks prior to get my preferred table and one of the reasons I booked this place is because of the view. I arrived a few minutes earlier my reservation time and made us wait a little until my reservation time. In my reservation, I requested for a booth by the window but I was assisted to a table way different from what I requested. I returned to the reception to let them know that I didn't like the table and that I made a reservation and requested for a table by the window. I was told that all the tables by the window were not available and it is a first come first serve basis and those tables were for 4-5 people but some tables had only 2 guests and even though the guests in one of the tables by the window just left, I wasn't seated there. They told me they could give me a seat close to the window if I would wait for 15-20 minutes but 30 minutes had passed and nothing so I approached them if there were tables ready and that's the only time they seated us. I don't get the point of making a reservation to get your preferred table, I even made the reservation 2 weeks before the intended date and would be informed that the tables you want are first come first serve. That's totally nonsense. Not even an apology was given to us. This ruined my night.

Porter House Grill was very busy on a Thursday evening so the noise level in the restaurant and bar was very high - typical for New York. We chose the NY strip steak with a truffle mashed potato and spinach sides. The steaks were great and perfectly cooked and highly recommended. The sides were small in comparison (particularly the mashed potato) and if sharing you need 2 portions. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. All in all a good end to our New York trip.

We were three ladies traveling and felt that we were put at the worst table. Our waitress was indifferent to us. Not a pleasant experience. But the fillet was cooked perfectly!

Arguably the best steakhouse in New York City. Consistently perfectly cooked steaks interesting appetizers beautiful desserts. Chef Lomonaco truly outdoes himself every single night.

Excellent food, atmosphere, and staff-especially staff. Circumstances beyond their control, unfortunately, it was extremely warm in the restaurant. Everyone acknowledged the problem, did what they could to make us more comfortable, in the end, the food, wine and service made all the difference. We will definitely be back and highly recommend. We had oysters, roasted bone marrow, a Porterhouse for two, black truffle mashed potatoes and roasted brussels sprout--perfection!

I am in New York three to four times a year and typically enjoy lunch at The Porter House. This time, I went for dinner and it had to be one of the best dinners I have had in a while. I dine out 3 to 4 times a week but, the quality of food, the exceptionally trained staff and the atmosphere here make this a spot I will come back to on each of my trips!

One month prior, I made a reservation for 7 pm for my husband’s 65th birthday. I noted his birthday on the reservation and asked for a table by the window. When we arrived promptly at 7, we were told by the hostess that the table was not ready. It was bedlam. The restaurant had clearly overbooked. The hostess was completely indifferent. We were asked to go to bar. After checking back in with the waitress 3 times, we were finally seated 40 minutes later. Of course, no table by the window. Instead, a banquette behind a pillar. I asked if there was a table by the window, and was told by the same indifferent hostess, who could not have cared less, that there was no such table available. They were completely booked. No kidding. There was absolutely no acknowledgment of my husband’s birthday. We were clearly “just a number.” Given the insanity, the service was awful. We were told to put in an order for oysters right away to get things started. The waitress put the order in and seemed to take forever to come back to get the rest of the order. Eventually the oysters and all the appetizers came out at one time. The oysters were disappointing as was the burrata and tomato. The waitress, by the way, was a not very funny, wisecracker, obviously practicing her stand up routine. We weren’t amused. The whole experience was very disappointing and we likely will not return.

2nd time at Porter House and enjoyed it just as much! Had the same server again and Nicole remembered us! Amazing personality and very much into making sure everyone is happy with what they were interested in having. Service was on point! Celebrated my mom’s birthday and she over heard it was mine and my partners next week- went out of her way to have a plate of cookies with candles brought over to us. Its the little touches that you remember the most. On the pricey side even with sharing but for special occasions its worth it!

Beautiful setting with views of the park. Typical steakhouse menu with lots of great choices. Service staff needs more training. Constantly interrupted by reaching across table to refill water glasses when they didn’t need to be refilled.

Poor service that does not match the price level of the restaurant. Rude staff and general atmosphere that does not match the expected quality associated with reputation and name.

Our waiter, Mark, couldn't have been more accommodating and Eli was also a gracious host. It is our 3rd visit to this restaurant with our friends visiting from California along with my wife, my daughter and my best friend. The food was prepared exactly as ordered. The only way to improve when we visit again would be to sit at a table with a view.

Wonderful experience! We had asked if it would be possible to have a window table, probably without much expectation. We did wait for maybe 30 minutes to be seated which was a they gave us time for aperitif cocktails. We were then sat at a wonderful table with views of Central Park and Columbus Circle. To cut it short, very helpful and interesting waiter, fabulous beef. One for the memory bank!

My husband has the T-Bone steak special and it was extremely tough and was overcooked as well. The sides were bland. I think Porter House is very expensive and other steak restaurants in New York City are a much better quality and value. I would not return nor would recommend it.

Five of us shared 2 porterhouse steaks, which was more than enough to eat. The meat quality and preparation were very good. Salads, sides, all very good. The sommelier was very helpful with selection of an excellent wine.

Das Essen ist gut, aber extrem überteuert und deshalb kann ich das Lokal nicht empfehlen. Preis- Leistung passt nicht, auch wegen der extremen Lautstärke im Lokal - total ungemütlich.
