The service here was phenomenal! The food is too die for
Food was delicious the environment was good, but service that was outstanding. I recommend the bananas dessert is a fun experience and the budin cake was very tasty.
Everything was fantastic. The steak was perfectly cooked, tender, and flavorful. The cocktail, side dishes, and dessert were great too. Overall, a really excellent experience.
The service was excellent!
We had the ribeye and it was absolutely delicious!
We love this place.
Great spot. Very happy to have found it. Will definitely go back!
Came here for my sister’s birthday and it was her first time at the restaurant. She fell in love with everything we ordered and vouched to bring her kids and friends there. The service was also great and we’re already planning our next event at Porterhouse.
Love this we will always be back.
Not outside!! Food was spectacular! Social distance for sure, but NOT outside as advertised.
It was an amazing dinner at Porterhouse. The food was very tasty. Service was great!!!!! I would definitely recommend to have dinner there 👍👍👍
Everything was exceptional; however, the cork fee was way too overpriced - shocking!! It was $60 dollars for two bottles! I've been to many different restaurants, and none has charged per bottle, nor has any of them been over $15. I understand the situation restaurants are in, but to overcharge like that just does not sit right with me. Definitely felt like I was being taken advantage.
Great place for food and friends! Steaks are amazing.
I took my daughter. I had a margarita she had a martini we both had steaks,
Filet and a bone in ribeye with twice baked potatoes and an oyster appetizer
Everything was great will be back again
I love going to this restaurant when I want to indulge. A bit pricy but worth every cent. The food was delicious and the servers were so kind to remember that I had placed a note that it was my husbands birthday and gave him a celebratory sherbet. Will definitely come back!
One of the few restaurants open on Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving turkey menu special was tasty, a little heavy on the dark meat, and the portion was a bit smaller than I would have liked. The price was reasonable for Thanksgiving evening. The entire experience was average to above average
Prices way too high for the portion given. Despite meat aged, it was still somewhat chewy
Our family had a great Thanksgiving dinner. We felt comfortable and safe.
very good will return for other than T-giving meal
A hidden gem within 3rd st in downtown San Mateo, Porterhouse, a steakhouse, has a history in the downtown community of San Mateo thats worth visiting.
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!
