The server that I had tonight was absolutely horrible. She took nearly a half hour to take our order, and she only finally took it when we flagged down the maître d’. We were not asked how any of our food was. I had to flag down people to request more water. Our server left in the middle of the meal without any announcement, we had to flag someone down to request our check.

Waaaay over priced. And I’m used to paying top $ for steakhouses. I felt like I was paying for the rent and the view my table didn’t have.

Always a great meal. Service is attentive but not annoying. It speaks volumes that management and many of the staff have been the same for years. They deliver a great meal in a wonderful space. Never disappoints. We are lucky to have such a great (and consistent) restaurant on the West Side - for so many years.

OUTSTANDING!!! Porter House knows how to show customers a good time. From the moment you’re greeted at the door, to the goodbye on the way out. The waitstaff are eager to help, friendly, yet professional. The young woman who started us off with cocktails and apps when we arrived was extremely generous in explaining menu items and making recommendations based on our tastes. She even suggested how we could order sauce on the side to sample before diving in. Our regular waiter had been occupied elsewhere, and when he came to take our entree order, he was also knowledgeable about the menu. All the items we had, apps salad entrees sides and desserts were perfected prepared and presented. KUDOS!!! Michael LoMonico rocks ❤️

For the money I expected more--better presentation of the food, more food, though I don't like huge portions. The dover sole was good but at such a price they could have put something besides the fish on the plate.

I still love this restaurant, but the two nicoise salads we ordered were terrible. It used to be the best one in town.....what a sorry version(including dressing) of what used to be.....

I will return to the three course lunch special next time which still looked great......

Go back to the old version of the salad or get it off the menu!!

From the beginning it was not a welcoming experience. A particular employee was rude to us after we were seated. I will say that we got the manager involved, who did comp dessert for us, and that was appreciated. In the end, the food was just not great, especially for the price, and there are too many other options in the area for us to want to return.

Overall very good. But several of the dishes were slightly under seasoned (creamed spinach, hash brown potatoes, NY strip steak). The bone marrow was slightly over-salted. In general the meal was of very high quality, but at this level, all the little details are important. They are all what separates one top NY steakhouse from another. So instead of Porter House being one of the very best steakhouses in NY, this meal made it feel like a very good restaurant, but that there are better of its kind in town. The view is fantastic if you get a window seat, but the room just looks like a generic high end hotel in any town. Could have been the Grand Hyatt or Ritz in Cleveland. The decor is nice enough but the design has no point of view and felt bland and slightly dated.

This restaurant is fabulous. Everything is executed perfectly from the moment you are seated until you walk out the door. The food is delicious and the view of Central Park is an added bonus. Of course, you pay a pretty penny for the pleasure of dining here but for a special occasion it is worth every cent!

Food overall was very good. However I spoke to the restaurant beforehand telling them we were coming over to NY from the UK for my partners surprise 30th and asked for a window seat for the views to make it extra special. That didn’t happen. I emailed twice and didn’t get a reply. We were sat the opposite side to the windows so couldn’t see the views atall so don’t feel the meal was worth it overall.

Great, friendly service. Excellent food — fillet mignon and lobster was superb. Decent value, not cheap but not overwhelmingly expensive. Would certainly recommend if you’re looking for a vibrant place to get a good steak. Not an old school joint but a fantastic place for steaks nonetheless

Porter House is always on point, always phenomenal in every aspect that matters: service, food, knowledge of staff.

I go here for every special occasion and frankly The Cowboy Rib Steak here is the best I’ve had out of any country or city I’ve ever traveled to and trust me I’ve had steak in many. It’s hands down and without a doubt the most flavorful and pristinely prepared piece of meat on planet earth.

Trust me. Make the trip here. Have the Rib Steak, change your life forever.
Also- get to know the staff, they are welcoming knowledgeable and experts at what they do.

Just wish the kitchen/the cooks could prepare and serve steaks like they do at Keens or even Old Homestead. Porter House throws a pat of herb butter on top but, unfortunately that doesn't make up for the better cut of steak that these other older, more famous steakhouses serve their customers.
Service and ambiance are exemplary at PH, however. Clean, crisp environment with drop dead views that Keens and Old Homestead will never have.....but, in the end, is that why we go to steak places...for the view?
It's the company we keep and take with us and the joy of having big, juicy, mouth-watering steaks. Porter House misses each and every time.

We always have a great meal at Porter House bar and Grill. The service team is always outstanding. The deserts are so large you need to share!! We normally do not get a seat near the windows so that is always disappointing. Even in the main restaurant it can get noisy. But the main meals, apps, drinks, wine, desert, service team always make us come back. Thanks,
