WOW This is our favorite steak house in NYC. Great steaks and frankly some of the best pasta we have ever had. Great apps too. See photos of the onion rings she got with the hamburger. She said it was the best she had ever had. Son had the bacon app which is huge. He asked for maple syrup to put on the bacon (don't ask me why) and believe it or not they found some, he said it was awesome and he made me try it. Amazingly it was really good. Save room for desserts. Some photos show what we got. All of it was out of this world. Everything we had was great, service was perfect and it was a great room. This place is huge but does get busy so get a reservation. First class all the way.

Wonderful experience! Dined alone for my birthday but the staff made me feel so special and welcomed! My server went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Next time I’m visiting New York City I will for sure be coming back here for at least one meal!

Celebratory dinner with my wife and one of my sons. My son and I shared the Porterhouse for 2. Wow! Really Wow! I usually like the sirloin more than the filet. This filet was like butter. Possibly the best I have ever had. The wine selected by the steward was reasonable and right in the sweet spot of what we wanted - not to big, but with sufficient tannins. It does seem like the prices go up 10-15% every time we go there. I know, supply chain. Hopefully they are giving their employees some of the increase.

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and we had the loveliest time. The servers across the board were absolutely wonderful (even filling my wine glass free of charge when I toppled a bit of my drink over with a particularly clumsy, flaily gesture) and the food ranks in the top five meals we’ve ever eaten. We were seated at a table with an amazing view of Columbus Circle/Central Park and were given a beautiful desert with “Happy Anniversary” written across the plate. The whole evening felt so special and it felt like The Porter House went out of their way to make it so.

Always a great meal - top notch steaks and surf (the seafood plateau is crazy) and desserts. And super friendly waitstaff too. Worth the money and the views at night especially are pretty spectacular.

Everything was great except the room was FREEZING and it killed the experience. Had to dine with my coat on which is no fun while cutting a steak. We skipped dessert cuz it was so darn cold!

We always enjoy Porter House when in NYC. This visit did not disappoint. We started with a delightful cocktail then glass of white wine that were very good. Then with help from the Somm we chose an Italian Brunello for dinner. We shared the shrimp cocktail & the burrata/tomato salad - both wonderful! Then we shared the porterhouse steak with the creamed spinach WITH bacon (what?!) and the glazed carrots (OMG!). What a fantastic dinner & our server was friendly & attentive. Another great experience!

Great time with a friend in town for the week. The wait staff servers were super. We actually had two servers helping us. They really worked to make sure we were served in a timely way and all our dining needs were met. My friend had the Faroe Island salmon, which I tasted, and even though I am not a fan of salmon, the uber moist salmon with a very subtle taste almost won me over. I had the lobster and the presentation and taste were impeccable. The beet salad was average, the beet taste didn't pop as much as I expected. I am a lover of beets. The dessert selection of the "cookies" was spot on. I even brought half of them home. Please don't drop these from your dessert menu. The noise level was a bit high but I was accepting of this because it was good to see a restaurant busy again in this age of Covid-19. To dine-out and not feel as if you are "dining alone" is a good feeling to have again. I highly recommend Porter Steak House. On my next visit I will try the Ribeye.

Service was excellent and very attentive. However, for the exceptional price, the food was mediocre. It’s hard to believe this was “voted the best steakhouse in NYC”. But for the service, this would have rated only 2 stars.

This is the first time trying this either, the food and service were excellent, and it was most convenient to the Jazz Show that we were going to be attending which was next-door! Our table tried a variety of items on the menu including the filet mignon, the lamb chops, and pork dish, all were excellent! Recommended stop in a great room when you’re visiting the city!

Definitely deserving of the best steakhouse title that they’ve been labeled with. Start off with one of their signature cocktails. Then enjoy great raw bar selection, excellent bone in rib-eye and phenomenal side dishes to pick from. Don’t miss out on the onion rings and pace yourself so you can finish off with the South Carolina Coconut Cake and after dinner drink.
