This used to be a very high end restaraunt that has now turned into....something else.The chicken breast was dry...the kids meal for my niece was chicken fingers that literally only came with ketchup and they had NO other sauce in the back..kids..ketchup? Wow the variety...no good Fish..Just a disappointment

We had a wonderful time at PH. The steak was phenomenal. The broccoli with oil and garlic was superb. The baked potato however, tasted like it was from a local 7-11. It was lacking a certain kick. The waiter was okay, he helped pick out a nice wine. It was somewhat loud, but that just means folks were having a good time. The only complaint other than the bland potato was that I didn’t get our window seat as requested. With that, an 8/10 for me. :)

I have been an Open Table Member for Over 15 Years. I am supposedly a VIP member. My question is why does it seem often times I/We get seated in the WORST TABLE in the Restaurant??? As we where brought to the awful table I notice at least 5 open tables by the windows that where available. When I asked the person seating us if we could be seated elsewhere she said she would check. After standing in the dining room for a little bit she returned and moved us to a Proper Table by the windows. WHY Didn’t they put us there to begin with?? The server was nice but I think overwhelmed. The service was Sub Par for such a Great Restaurant.. The Food was AMAZING. I will return but I Will Not Allow This To Happen Again!!!

Ordered the porterhouse steak. First round came almost well done when we asked for medium. Second time around was borderline OK - but not the quality of meet expected for the price that is charged. My son had a hamburger which was great.

We go here frequently and no doubt wii continue. The food is good, salads well composed and drinks well-made. But last visit the service was miserable. For no apparent reason I was brought the wrong steak, the wrong sauce and we endured yawning stretches of inattention during the evening.

Staff was friendly. Food was perfectly cooked and timely. We split a steak and felt no pressure from the staff to each order an entree. We will recommend to our friends.

Because I had indicated it was our anniversary on the reservation, they had reserved a beautiful table for two looking out the window. The view of the city was magnificent. We were 15 minutes (we got lost!) and they were nothing but nice when we arrived, wishing us a Happy Anniversary and showing us to our table right away. Our waiter was over the top fantastic- Max! He took our picture for us, laughed with us, joked with us, and I'm pretty sure he's my new best friend! The food was outstanding and definitely one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Our banana cream pie was so good and even included a Happy Anniversary message on the plate. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely return.

The food was fantastic - porterhouse steak was incredible and the wine menu was impressive. Service... hmmmm... rushed and abrasive. When serving 10 and spending a couple of grand, one would expect spend/food/service to align.

We assumed from the restaurant’s website that is a high scale and elegant restaurant, with a pleasant atmosphere. We were therefore overdressed. The restaurant is extremely loud, you have the feeling you are in the main hall of a train central station. As it is located in the Mall, people walk in in shorts and sandals without a problem. The food was very good. However totally overpriced. For a stake for two with one side dish each (no salad, no appetizers) and a ½ bottle of wine (USD 85), to pay almost USD 400 is too much. We are living in Switzerland, in Zurich, where prices are not low and for this money we would definitely get another experience and for sure a nicer atmosphere.

We booked a table by request at the window, but got one in the middel of the room, eventhough there was a table free by the windows.

The first waiter acted as this was the end of his shift, he was not welcoming. And when we ordered, he recommend that we get starters because the steak would be a while, we told him we had a big lunch, så we just wanted something light. My partner ended up with a whole board of cold cuts of meat, it would have been nice, as the waiter knows the menu, that he had guided us to lighter dishes, as we ended up only eating half.

The noice level is high the acutics is not good, and all spiced up with music aswell. As a date night we could not really talk together becuase of the noise.

The waiters got better as the first one proberly went home. Attentive with filling up drinks.

The food is in the high end of price, compared to NYC, but to Europe, it is pretty much the same. However drinks is even more pricey.

The quality of food was nice, the beef was cooked the way it was ordered, good sides and sauces. A bit the charred for my personal taste, but still very tasty.

However I would not go here again. It seems like a fancy mall restaurant with nice food (and dessert). I expected more steakhouse feeling with the interior, some carpets would do wonders with the sound, and some warm guest service courses for the staff (hostess and first water) would lift the rating, the food is good, it is every thing els that makes it mediocre.

The food was good, but overpriced. The cuts of meat were good, but no larger than what I’d buy at the local grocery store. We would not go there again.

Food was delicious. I took my parents there for dad's birthday. They both had a steak. I am a pescatarian and had the salmon. There were plenty of vegetarian options. Every single dish we order was flavorful and a good portion size. We barely had room for dessert.
Service was great as well. Our server, though vegetarian herself was very knowledgeable and made very nice recommendations.
