The food here is simply delicious, cooked to perfection and high quality. I recommend the filet, sea board, mashed potatoes and fries.

First meal out for first date night in 3 months since stay at home orders. Wanted to make the first meal out special but it just wasn't. The tiny crab cakes tasted like someone had scooped out deviled crab stuffing from a cheap fish camp and then cooked them to charcoal texture. The so-called "slaw" on the side was literally one small leaf of limp cabbage. My husband had the salmon over risotto. The salmon was fine but the risotto had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. All you tasted was watery rice. The Watermelon Man cocktail (Pimms and watermelon) was delicious but it took over 20 minutes to come to the table. This is at 50% capacity. Service should have been twice as fast with reduced capacity. Our server was very apologetic and took the crab cakes off our bill and offered to bring me something else but at this point, I didn't want to wait for another meal. A manager did stop by to apologize. I have been here on several occasions and have been disappointed each time. This is a $50-$100 a person restaurant depending on what you order. Definitely not worth it.

One of our favorite “go to” restaurants since it opened. Some of the best service and ambience you’ll ever enjoy when dining out. The food, although very good, seems very inconsistent - from the subtle changes to the size, options, and quality of the meat and cheese on the Charcuterie board. To the sizes of the sides, and the overall quality and care of the food that comes out. Still a great option as the bartenders and staff are elite, but the price you pay for the quality of food is becoming less of a value.

I don’t like that y’all keep changing your menu items up. My husband ordered the carpaccio as his dinner because it used to be HUGE and the steak was seared and it was half the size and it didn’t have half of the items on the plate that it used to come with. You used to have an AWESOME appetizer bread that you have also taken off the menu. It used to be our favorite place but every time we go we are more and more disappointed. But on a positive note our service was awesome and the ambiance was awesome and the drinks are ALWAYS awesome!

Excellent food and excellent service! Prime grade steaks cooked to perfection. Steaks were seasoned a little light for my taste, but excellent nonetheless. Great for any occasion or just to have an excellent dinner experience.

Been here before and was not impressed but thought we would I’ve it another. Never again! Steak was way over cooked and flavorless. Salmon was poor quality. Food is disappointing especially for the price. Trying to be a high quality restaurant but coming up WAY short!

Dinner And service was great. My only annoyance with the fact that I brought in two bottles of my wine offered our server two glasses which he acknowledged and enjoy and then charge me $40 and corkage fees. Wow I don’t care I offered the wine for him to try I am annoyed that I got hit with a $40 corkage fee.

We really enjoyed Porters House in the past. They have changed their menu items which was a disappointment as some of the newer offerings are not as good as the prior. Will give it another chance based on our prior experiences and hopefully constructive feed back will help.

The food is good but it is very loud, crowded and has a very cold casual vibe.
We stated on our reservation it was our 10 year anniversary and there was no acknowledgment. Not something you expect from a restaurant is so pricy and considered to be upscale.
It is definitely not a special occasion place, it’s more of a corporate/business meeting place.

The steak was good, cooked right. The salmon was fantastic. The short rib app was nice, the creamy horseradish made it better. Definitely one of the best restaurants we've been to in the area.

Very good food. Bar area service is excellent, when seated or bar table is available. Overall on the pricey side for the experience. But a solid choice.

We were there for the first time celebrating my wife’s birthday. The service was excellent, the kitchen made a mistake on my wife’s filet temperature. Not an intimate place, very open and a little on the noisy side.

The standout aspect of our experience was the customer service.

The service staff, from top tier managers down to the custodial staff, puts an emphasis on you. I’d comfortably say the service at The Porter’s House is so good that it makes the Ritz feel like a Walmart Customer Service desk on Black Friday. Cheers!

Valentine’s Day with a set menu. We both ordered different things and 2/8 dishes were something we thought were well cooked. Laughed it off as an overpriced experience.

My mother has alzhiemers and is easily scared by loud noises. They always do whatever they can to make her feel comfortable. This was her birthday so they ushered us straight to the Whiskey Room where we had privacy, excellent service and fantastic food. For all of those reasons and more, this is out favorite restaurant in Charlotte. I highly recommend The Porter's House.
