This is my go to place. The tables are far enough apart that you can have meaningful conversation, the staff is the best there is and the food and their accommodations are legendary.
Highly and unabashedly recommended as first tier, first choice.

Went to celebrate my birthday. Food is very expensive-dinner for two was $700 for appetizers, entree, dessert and liquor. The scallops were amazing although you only get 2 scallops for almost 30 dollars. We shared the Japanese wagyu and i wouldn't get it again. The first few bites were good but then I got a little turned off and I didn't want to finish it. I think I'm just not a steak person but I would have rather had something smaller and less fat content. Dessert was nothing special. The Riesling i had was very good. Overall the service was excellent and the atmosphere was beautiful. I'd go back again, id just try something different.

One of our favorite restaurants for their prix fixe lunch, BUT this time service was poor: slow to serve, quick to remove, and rude. In answer to query regarding timing of main course, the server replied: "Do you see there are other people here?"

Delicious food! Impeccable wine list! The waiter even brought over a complimentary mango sorbet (after he overheard me taking about how much I️ love mango sorbet), and it was AMAZING! The music was a little too loud, but overall our experience was great!

Disappointed to say that the meal was disappointing. Service was abrupt and all about turning the table. The filet was excellent and cooked to the appropriate temperature. However, the strip steak was over cooked and tough. I expected more from a top steakhouse in NY.

In NYC on business and wanted one really steak dinner. Porter House recommended as alternative to Peter Luger's. Service was excellent, The bar had several choices of rye, and I chose the prime rib ( Available only on Wed/Thur) based on the waiter's recommendation. I was not disappointed. Portion was substantial and the au jus/wine reduction was excellent. Roasted Brussel sprouts accompanied the beef And were served with a nice char. For those in The Columbus circle area, I highly recommend this as a great fine dining experience.

Was so looking forward to eating at this establishment. But the service was lacking. The waitress kept on walking by our table but never filled our water glasses. Also, she inquired about our meal after we had already been eating for 20 minutes. She appeared to be more interested in the larger tables and not our 2 person meal.

Food was pretty good but the service took away our enjoyment.

What a bust!

Porterhouse was fine. Nothing memorable about it but damn fine beef and a great bar. The Som was not super friendly but he did recommend a nice wine. Overall, a good experience but nothing you can’t get at another steakhouse - and MUCH friendlier than Peter Lugers and cash only not required.

This has been my go to Steak House for some time but this last visit was bothersome. First off the entire room was freezing cold. Both myself and my guest had to wear our jackets.The temperature of the room resulted in us just wanting to eat quick and leave. Additionally the service was disappointing. I am in the hospitality business myself and the lack of detail was not what we experienced in past visits.
We had to ask our waiter 3 times to clear emptied glassware. Why he would bring us new drinks and then leave the previous glass was odd. Also, when the bread was served my guests napkin was on the table and the server placed his bread plate on top of the napkin rather than place it on his lap or even ask him to do it himself. When new flatware was brought to the table it was just left to the side rather than place it in the appropriate place. This details may seem like no big deal but ultimately we felt uncomfortable as it is not what we are used to at Porter House. The service should reflect the price that we are paying and unfortunately this was not the case this visit.
We had to ask for the check twice and then and only then were we approached to ask how everything was.
The food was as always, delicious.
A little more attention to detail is in order but it will be awhile before we return.

By the way the server attending the table next to us was on point. We wish we had her.

Went there a year ago during a prior visit to NYC and decided to go there again this past weekend. In a year, things have either gone drastically downhill or it was just a bad night. Steaks were the right temperature but burnt on the outside and dry. We ordered filet mignon at medium rare and medium temperatures, and while they were the proper shade of pink, they were dry and flavorless. Saving grace was the salad (bibb lettuce, bacon, and blue cheese). Not worth the money or the time.

It's about 'dining' - can be pricy but worth the $$'s - attractive room - professional helpful staff - good food - LOW noise level - excellent pre fix lunch seven days a week - you won't be disappointed. You can request a table that overlooks Columbus Circle and lower area of Central Park

Been to Porter House about 5 times. Never had a bad meal there. In fact, every meal has been 5 stars. The service is very good in the way you want it to be, i.e. the waiter staff is always attentive, but obsequious/over attentive. The food is always very good. The steaks are always cooked EXACTLY the way I ask it to be cooked. I feel lucky that it's a neighborhood restaurant and I can always go there with friends and family.
