Most overpriced wine menu I’ve ever seen. Wife order Dover Sole, preparation was lacking, too oily ( for $88 should be simply grilled not sautéed. Veal chop was fine.

$300 for not much.

The food, space and atmosphere were great. The service was not as attentive as I would have liked. We had to flag down passing wait staff for water or any other requests. The bread server never came back after the first time, the waitress did not come without being summoned

Fantastic drinks and wine selection. Porterhouse for 2 in unreal. Definitely try thick slab bacon for app
For sides, the sweet potatoes with marshmallows is amazing and so are the hash browns. Not a meat lover the mushroom risotto is top notch. Service is solid. Make sure you have a resi.

The food was absolutely outstanding and the restaurant was beautiful. Our table,however, was directly under the air conditioning unit. We asked our server if anything could be done, what seemed like a manager approached and advised it had been turned down and we should heat up shortly. An hour or so passed and we were still freezing, eating dinner in our jackets. When we spoke to our server again, he told us there was nothing they could do (so someone had obviously lied). The attitude turned very sour after this, with our final bill thrown down on the table at us.

As earlier stated, the food was beautiful. The steaks were world class, the accompanying sides were just as good. The service severely let the team down, with the hard work of the chefs being ruined at the last hurdle. Such a shame, it was so close to being worth the $400.

Besides the service which was outstanding, the food was mediocre. It was overpriced as well. The chopped salad was the worst salad I have ever had and it had beets throughout it. I do not care for beets otherwise I would have ordered the beet salad. The steaks were huge but just okay. I was expecting more.

It’s always a treat to dine here. Porter house is in my opinion the best Steak Restaurant in New York City. Service is attentive without being hovering. The views are fantastic, and the food is always spot on delicious. On the recommendation of A feature in The current issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine, I started with the bone marrow appetizer. The marrow bone is split and marrow seasoned, broiled and served with chanterelle mushrooms, a light Demi glaze , and rye toast points. Mouthwatering. For an entree I chose the Filet Mignon, which comes with nature d butter, watercress salad and I had s side of the buttermilk onion rings. The steaks are always cooked to perfection here, and tonight was no exception. The NY cheesecake with fresh berries is also a delight. The wine list has a large selection of wines by the glass, I had the cotes du Rhône which was a perfect match with both the marrow & the steak. Can’t wait to return!

Porterhouse staffers was amazing. Excellent service!
Charming gentleman! We were 4 old ladies but young

Can’t say the same for the steaks! Extremely tough
hashed browns were scrumptious!

Sin duda ordenar el Porter house añejado fue una gran experiencia, la vista de manhattan es simplemente indescriptible, el costo promedio es alto pero pagas lo que recibes en ambiente y comida, la carta de vinos tiene un gran balance y la oferta de medias botellas hace que valga la pena ordenarlas, sin duda regresaría

Our group traveled to NY from Philly for a show, dinner and a Sunday in Central Park. The Porter House was the best part of the trip. From the minute we walked in the door the staff was attentive and courteous. Our waiter was outstanding as well as the rest of the staff. Most important the food was excellent as well as the wine, what a wine selection to choose from. We would give Porter House a 5 star recommendation. to our friends and family.

A la carte menu is pricey so we went for 3 course lunch menu for $39 per head. Outstanding value, great food and great sized portions, struggled to finish our desserts. Just don’t go mad on cocktails, delicious but doubled the price

Overall, it was a great experience! The quality of the food was incredible!
The service was lacking though. I would have expected better service from the restaurant. Most of the night out server was no where to be found and we had to wait quite some time to order.

I would still highly recommend this restaurant though. The meal and ambiance is 100% worth it!

The porterhouse restaurant in a jewel in the middle of Manhattan,you can see central park and very beautiful panorama.Its pricey but nice for special occasions. They have price fix deals, during lunchtime and before 2:30 pm I particularly like the New York strip , my son and his wife ordered the Porterhouse for two bone in. If you want to keep the juices in,you have to request they don't slice it .My son was a little disappointment when the steak was pre cut

The room is boring and poorly decorated. The noise level is out of hand. One of the meat orders was not cooked to specifications and waiter disagreed.

A friend and I had lunch at the Porter House Bar and Grill on a Wednesday. Unfortunately, on that day a large party was being served; this caused about a 45 minutes delay before we were served our appetizers. (The delay was not the waiter's fault but rather it seemed that the restaurant kitchen was short-handed on that day.) However, once the waiter service and food started, an enjoyable lunch followed. The raisin bread is delicious as is the beet salad. Since I wanted my filet mignon well-done, the waiter suggested that the meat be butterflied (split in half) for more even cooking. I was delighted that my filet mignon was cooked to the degree of doneness that I requested--well-done, but still moist. I would definitely recommend the Porter House Bar and Grill which is housed on the 4th floor of a fascinating building.

I had the filet. asked for Med. Rare and is was perfect. sides were very good. My wife got the duck. Medium Rare also, duck was a little gamey, little chewy and would have like to see a crispier skin. Overall good experience.

First time at this restaurant. I had the 9oz Filet medium rare. Cooked to perfection. I also had a side of asparagus. Very quick service and attention to detail. I will definitely return next time I am in town for business.
