Porterhouse is consistently fabulous! Food and service are wonderful ... one of my favorite “go-to” restaurants.
Ordered 20 oz. Porterhouse Steak it did not look like 20 oz. it was less than 3/4” thick, for a 20 oz steak it should be at least 1” thick. Both orders were the same.
Porterhouse needs to be truthful in there claims of weight of steak.
My dining experience was good. They food was great. I had a great experience.
Great EVERYTHING. Food, drinks, service, ambience... Literally everything. Worth every penny! We had a fantastic time. Fast service but didn't feel rushed.
Excellent service by Luis. He was attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent and the ambiance was great. Nice and cozy.
Excellent service all around & great food!
The food has a unique taste with the flavor combinations that complement each other. The service was great and felt the Home hospitality. Aged Rib eye beef was delicious.
Popped up on my timeline while looking for a dine in restaurant happy that we actually went everything was perfect nice and very comfortable
Our steaks were delicious! The four of us in my group each got a different one. I tried them all and they were all great! Their menu is limited right now because of Covid, but there are still a lot of great options. I only wish their Caesar salad still came with strips of shaved parmesan like it used to.
Food was amazing. Service was chest! Friendly and didn’t feel rushed at all!
Had the bone in cowboy steak. Amazing! Mushrooms and truffle Mac and cheese was out of this world .
Started with crab cakes and chilled prawns ! One of the best dinners we’ve had💋🍦🥩
Great to get to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants.
Steaks cooked to our request, perfectly.
great service, will be back soon.
So nice to get out in these crazy times to support our local restaurants
The food was fantastic. The beef egg rolls were delicious along with the rest of meal which consisted of steak and pasta.
As always, the food was fantastic, service was exceptional and everyone is friendly and efficient. My only complaint is that they aren’t spacing out the indoor seating as much as I feel they should. The booths are high back and no one else in my group thought it was a problem so maybe I’m just a bit more nervous about it. That being said, I know this is a very difficult time for all restaurants and we are happy to support Porterhouse and enjoy their amazing food.
The best steak restaurant in the world, and their chocolate souffle is awesome.
Filet was tasteless, New York was cooked rare vs medium and was chewy. Service was good but unfortunately but food quality was not to our liking.
Great atmosphere and great service. Food was good!
Perfect service supervised by Luis in the atrium.1
I've gone many times. Always top notch food and service.
We were treated like royalty for our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff was pleasant and attentive, the setting was romantic and personal. The food was flavorful and wonderfully proportionate for the price. Parking was ideal and we will be back!
Great food and great service. We were seated right away and our waiter Derek was very attentive all night.
Visited this restaurant and was very pleased with the food and cleanliness. What made me choose to give a lower rating on the service was the hospitality of the manager or better lack of. As the manager made his rounds to the four groups seated in the restaurant he not once stopped my group until it was time for us to pay. This gives me a bad feeling about the restaurant as I was basically disregarded by the owner and the server stating I was young. Which for me was also another unfavorable experience. As I feel they believed we wouldn’t have wanted a normal dining experience yet, I feel the service is the MOST important part of the dining experience. As through the service you learn what is a favorable dish and what would best fit your palate yet did not receive this.
Have never had a poor meal at Porterhouse. Warm inviting atmosphere, excellent staff always our favorite restaurant for a good meal and atmosphere. A local gem.
Food was excellent! Servers were attentive & fast. It was nice to get out of the house so I appreciated the outdoor seating.
We had a wonderful dinner, and the Porterhouse for two was amazing. Great wine selection, and the twice baked potatoes were killer. We would go back for sure, and enjoyed the extremely professional service from everybody on the staff.
Food was outstanding ! Service was super star treatment ! The staff was wonderful and catered to our every needs and request! But the owner of the restaurant is a gentlemen scholar ! My Wife and i had a great time and looking forward to our retuning back there again !
We had a loud group of fellows who were inappropriately using the 'F bomb'
Both me and my wife asked them to please obey proper social language in public.
The group did not do as we asked so management got involved and solved the problem.
Great outdoor dining experience. Beautiful setting, great service. Nice sides included with the entree. We brought a couple wines earlier in the day for them to decant. All handled so expertly
This was our first time at Porterhouse, decided to try after reading reviews. We split the Cowboy steak which was plenty for the two of us. The flavor was good but more grizzle than should be for steak of that cut, fatty was expected. The rest of the meal was very good. Chocolate mouse was outstanding but portions very small.
We had made reservations for outdoor seating, that would have been one table next to to the parking garage. We opted for dining in the covered patio, with two doors open. We shared the large space with only one other twosome so there was plenty of space between us.
Service was very good, our wait staff was attentive and helpful.
Will try returning to try other things on the menu.
Excellent food Superior service. We will be back !
Best restaurant in San Mateo. Best steak house in the SF Bay Area.
With COVID happening We understood but being a steakhouse with the only dry aging facility, there definitely had to be some standards. We specifically wanted oysters and there weren't any oysters available. The menu was very one sided. Only meat and I settled with crab cakes. Despite, our service was pleasant and accommodating. I enjoyed him.
It was delicious.
Incredibly great service.
My husband and I shared the wedge salad and prime rib, both were delicious. Definitely recommed Porterhouse.
Great atmosphere and the service is top notch! Always have a wonderful experience here and are never disappointed by the food! We missed this place so much, and it’s an elegant yet cozy atmosphere for any occasion!
Great, good food, service and the nicest people!
Always welcoming. Good bartender. Good service but not overbearing. Expensive but worth it.
