I was very happy to see Porter House had re-opened last week after 7 mos. closed due to the Corona virus. The dining room has been rearranged so that the tables are 6’ apart, and the staff are all social distancing. The roasted bone marrow with chanterelle mushrooms was delicious. I followed that with the filet, cooked to a perfect medium rare. I opted for the extra bearnaise sauce, sautéed mushrooms and the truffled mashed potatoes. All of which are perfectly paired with the steak. The truffled mashed are a real treat and not to be missed! I had a glass of Malbec which enriched the combination. The wine list has many selections by the glass at reasonable prices.
The special dessert of the day was a puff pastry baked apple with homemade vanilla ice cream. Also delicious and not overly sweet. Can’t wait to return.

Everything about our experience was absolutely fabulous! The food, the wine, the view, and the service all made our anniversary magical. The staff was attentive and helpful while maintaining social distancing as much as possible and giving us privacy to enjoy our romantic evening. So happy that this restaurant opened again! We will definitely be back.

Best steak house in New York City. Tucked away in a corner on the 4th floor of the mall, no foot traffic. Perfect for right now.

The food is so deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. Consistently a winner. Staff is friendly and doting without being obtrusive. Chef Lomonaco steers this winning ship to 5 star status every, single night.

The restaurant is lovely. The food and presentation was good, not extraordinary. The waiter was a bit arrogant and did not make us feel welcome. The cost of a meal is insignificant when the food is excellent and the service is warm and inviting. When these qualities are missing, spending almost $400.00 for an okay dinner for two, seems unreasonable.

The best steak I’ve ever had! Well worth the price. Their employees were very professional and pleasant, the atmosphere was very classy and comfortable! I plan plan to spend many of birthdays at this steakhouse. Porterhouse Bar and grill is where it’s at!

The food was delicious. The service was a huge disappointment. The waiter was inattentive and passed us off to another person when he brought the check. Lastly, as we were leaving, the three people at the host station did not acknowledge us, say good bye or thank you. While the prices here may be mid-level by NY standards, there is still an expectation of quality service.

Porter House is fine dining and a steakhouse at its absolute finest. I highly suggest you explore the menu and order all over the place. Even the pasta....

Not as good as in our many previous visits. Took the kitchen 3 tries to get both our meals cooked to requested temps. I never had this situation before in any fine restaurant and to be sure this was a major distraction during a celebratory dinner. Not sure why this should be. Only received a sorry.

Mediocre at best. Visiting from San Diego and was expecting it to beat our steak houses back home, it didn’t. Food was ok, service was terrible. The place was almost empty but our server never checked on us. I imagine there are better places to go spend $300+ on dinner.

Wonderful restaurant with consistently great food, but being at the fringe of the restaurant is great for conversation, but out of sight by staff that is usually on point w service. Next time we will request a middle table.

This was our 2nd time there. Both times was when we were visiting New York. We love the restaurant! The staff is very nice and helpful with the menu and wine selection. It is very pretty inside with large beautiful chandeliers and huge windows looking out onto Columbus Circle. The shrimp in our shrimp cocktail were huge and my filet was excellent. Took the leftovers back to the hotel and eat them for breakfast. My husband order the bone in stripe steak and also loved his meal. We will definitely be back on our next visit to New York.

Good food but a bit overpriced. Sommelier wasn’t helpful and just flipped through the book for me. Atmosphere is a bit corporate. Dim the lights to create more of an intimate feeling. Spent almost $1k for 4 people. Normally get a free dessert or something but not here.

Fries were soggy. Veggies bland and prices have become ridiculously high. It's been our regular neighborhood steakhouse for years. I don't think we'll be going back.

Sometimes you want experimental, cutting edge and quirky cuisine.
Other times, you want a great cocktail, the freshest oysters and an amazing steak.
The Porter House Bar and Grill is for those times. Classics, perfectly done.

Meat quality is one of the best in town (In the country?). Views are amazing and ambiance is quiet and comfortable. It is ideal for a romantic lunch or dinner or a small group of friends. Service was a little bit "too friendly" for a high end spot.

Normally don’t do reviews but since you asked...ordered veal chop. Asked for it to be medium. Came out rare, chewy and with way too much fat. Disappointing especially given the cost.
