    Really bad steaks. Thin, lean, tough, like cheap grocery store steaks. Wow, that was bad.

    The food and cocktails were good. I would do back. But I was disappointed in a few things. First, my steak was very overcooked. My server offered to take it back to the kitchen but we had waited quite a while and everything else was on the table so I hated to make people wait. It was quite some time after it was dropped off that I was able to let them know so the window to refire had closed for me. Then, the salad I ordered came after we were about half done with our entrees. When I mentioned that I didn’t need it, our server just said “if it makes you feel better, it’s good the next day so you can take it to go.” No apology or offer to remove it since we were almost done with dinner. And staying in a hotel, I didn’t want to take it. I was very disappointed since a group of five spent over $700 on dinner, drinks and dessert, but there was zero effort to correct mistakes. Like I said, I’ll go again and give them another try because the food did taste good, but at that price point I expected a bit more. Things I recommend: quail legs, Brussels sprouts, cocktails.

    Classy little place hidden in century square, great ambiance and lighting, great food selection, and great drinks as well. The medium steak I got was a little crustier on the outside than i’m used to but everything else was pretty much what you’d expect for the price of the food. Overall would recommend.

    We had great service here, and a delicious meal. My biggest issue with our visit here was that we were told about the specials, which sounded delicious. But when we ordered the ribeye special, it turned out to be $135. For one steak. It's on me for not asking the price, but wow. It was shocking, and I left feeling duped and taken advantage of, no matter how delicious it was. And as much as I'd like to come back here, it just left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

    We were at this restaurant about two weeks earlier and the food was very good. We brought some friends this time because we enjoyed the last visit. The service was great this visit but the food was somewhat disappointing. The filet was good but the Oscar topping was minimal. The lettuce in the salads was turning dark. Would expect fresher produce for the price. Two of our party ordered the wagyu chicken fried steaks. Both were tough. Wagyu??

    Porters is usually pretty good. Not the case last night. Three of us dined and meals came out at different times—1 steak came out 5 mins after other two. Server was a young person who didn’t have the specials memorized and didn’t check on us (never asked if we were anted another drink)—spending $100 person on a meal, service needs to be top notch. My filet had a big piece of fat, Green beans were tasteless… overall, way too expensive for quality of food. And it was very crowded and noisy-they’ve crammed way too many tables into the rooms. Will not be returning as this was an expensive disappointment and there are better options.

    Brooke was an amazing waitress and was able to resolve a food temperature issue in very little time. She was professional and personable! Food tasted amazing, and the drinks were good. The main dining room was a bit loud - if you’re interested in a more intimate date it might be worth requesting a more secluded table behind their impressive wine wall. The manager Hunter went out of his way to welcome us and introduce himself as soon as we sat down. The entire experience was incredibly fun and we will be back.

    2nd time we have been there in the last couple of weeks. The food is always so go and the sides are wonderful. But...my wife's steak was undercooked the first visit and then last night her steak, (ordered Med Rare) came out almost well done. We did send it back, but by the time she got a replacement, we had all finished our steaks. Really disappointing. They made it right and took it off the bill, but that should not be happening so frequently.

    Fabulous experience from beginning to end. The food was great and there were ample options beyond steak, such as chicken fried steak (awesome), seafood and an over-the-top hamburger. The service was beyond impeccable and attentive. Awesome wine list. Highly recommend this restaurant. I rarely leave reviews unless the experience was exceptional. My only slightly negative observation was the chairs. They were cheap metal and wood chairs, not suitable for a high-end restaurant. The staff happily changed out our chairs with leather ones.

    My wife and I greatly enjoyed our dining at Porters. Our waitress, Taylor, was very professional, thoroughly knew the menu and offered several great suggestions to enhance our dining experience. Her impeccable enthusiasm and courteousness was present throughout the whole meal. There were several interesting cocktail choices offered. My wife had the Porters Manhattan, which she enjoyed, however I thought it was a little pricey. My Smoke and Honey was fairly priced and an excellent way to enhance a Whisky Sour. The Heirloom Tomato Cruise was a fabulous culinary delight and was immensely enjoyed by us, which will be a must in our future dining experience with Porters. Our meal was almost perfect, my filet was very tender and cooked medium-rare to my preference, however had a little more char than I preferred but not enough to send it back or deter its tasty smokey flavor that was ever present in each bite. The menu provides fantastic wine pairings for the meal and the choice of the Chacras Malbec greatly complimented our entrees. We finished with the Citrus Panna Cotta, which was an exquisite choice to complete the meal.

    Service was great. The two Christmas cocktails were great. However, was a lil underwhelming for the price. Filet was cooked to temp and was okay. They offered steak sauces that were quite good and was needed as the steak was just okay as far as flavor. Mashed potatoes and green beans were tasty. My father felt the same about his entree (ordered the same). My mom enjoyed her burger. My husband ordered the CFS and said that it decent but was lil tough and thin for a high end steakhouse. Overall nice experience but expected more considering the cost. Our bill was $277 without tip.

    We’ve eaten at Porters now more than a handful of times. Service is always great however the food was disappointing. We had a party of 8 and our steaks were slightly overcooked and cold, lobster tail was over cooked and cold. Just not the standard we’ve become accustomed to at Porters. No one came by and asked. Server was very good but not sure if he was busy to check.
