Porter House Bar and Grill
Over-rated. Service off & no very classy. Food average in quality/taste
Awesome food, big serving size, great steaks! Must try!
The food was incredible. The drinks were perfectly made as well. Wait staff was helpful and friendly and very nice. Great evening all around.
I’m sure everyone’s experience with every restaurant isn’t the same. But I came to PH to celebrate a birthday. And this place did not disappoint, the food and service was stellar! Would definitely come back, would recommend this place to everyone.
Porter House is consistently wonderful.
Porter House is an oasis of beauty, quiet elegance and charm, amidst the bustling city below, featuring one-of-a-kind views, delicious food and impeccable service.
Great experience. Service was very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. First time having the Niçoise salad. Great to have a variety of non-steak items at a steak house. Last time I had the roasted chicken and it was amazing-crispy skin, juicy and the pan gravy was sublime! The best restaurant in NYC!
outstanding as usual; a family favorite and often requested!
filet mignon and risotto the best I ever had👍👍👋👋
I invited an important client to a diner at this restaurant and the client was very happy with wine, foods service staff and the ambience. This is the restaurant I keep for the best option.
I had high hopes for porterhouse because it had been named one of the best steak places in nyc. The dining room is absolutely beautiful and we were seated next to a Window with a great view of the city. The food was just ok. I could tell the steak was very high prime quality and it was cooked good. Not perfect but good. The flavor was almost there. The black truffle mash potatoes were enough for one person. Not enough to split and they were expensive. Didn’t really wow me. We got passed off from our original server because some larger tables came in who were spending a lot more money than us. We were taken care of but at a place this expensive I felt the attention to service could have been a little better. Overall it was good but have had much better steaks at places outside nyc. Location is awesome and I didn’t walk away disappointed with my meal I just wasn’t blown away with it. If you are close to this place at dinner time it’s worth it but I wouldn’t drive all the way across the city to get there.
It wasn’t planned in advance somvery happy to be accommodated. The restaurant was very crowded and the food was very good. The sky was amazing with a beautiful sunset so the window seats were lucky
Well executed streak house staples. Yes it is a bit expensive but the quality is superior as is the service.
I have a hard time funding really good steak restaurants and I’ve found the one. We had both steak and fish and they were both delicious. The steak was supreme, juicy, tasty, tender and just excellent. Very good if you can afford it.
The location ad the atmosphere is fine. The service was great. Polite and informel in a good way. The siden very very good. I can highly recommend the risotto. We had a porterhouse, a Cote d'bouef and a New York Strip Steak. The meat was good - but not great. To be honest I have had more tender meat at cheaper restaurants. I would have expected a little more
As usual a very nice dinner at Porterhouse. Bone Marrow is fantastic. Steaks are super.
Porter House is simply the best steakhouse and one of the best restaurants in NYC. Amazing food, professional service and gorgeous surroundings combine for a memorable meal every time. While it's named for steak, all the food is superb.
I highly recommend Porter House for lunch or dinner,.
This was an incredible meal! We came for lunch and had the prix fix. The caesar salad, petite filets, and desserts were all high quality and delicious! I would love to come back for dinner!
Had a delicious prefixed lunch the Caesar salad it was absolutely amazing, the petite fillet mignon cooked to perfection and the cheesecake was enough to serve five people I would go back there in a heartbeat
The food was great. Price was reasonable for the location and quality.
The waiter was decent.
The issue was we loved the carrotts so much and ordered another side dish of them. We finished our meal and they cleared the table and brought us new plates for the carrots. When the food runner brought the carrots he made a comment to the waiter. Then the hostest came by to look at the table. Then the manager came by to talk to our waiter in front of us about the carrots. They thought we went for dinner had only ordered carrots. It was embarssaing. We had a full dinner with wine before. I told the waiter to tell the manager that next time he should talk to his staff away from where the customer can over hear. It really ruined our experience at this place. Would not go back.
Prie Fixe Lunch Meal is the best deal in NYC with ambiance, great meal and a view.
Food and wine list were enjoyable. The service was belligerent. Had a second waiter appear who was, remarkably, as bad or worse. No thank you. Won't be back.
Lived in NYC for 10 yrs before moving to Boston, came back for weekend and as PHS was close I gave it a shot. I am a steak snob, been to most every steak house in NYC, but never PHS. Ok.
Had early dinner at 6:15- it's a big place, it's not romantic, it's loud. To loud for me, and to many young kids, on the night we went. Even without them, it's Uncle Jack's louder. Service was to fast, our very nice waitress actually noticed the apps fly in and out and helped us slow it down. You seen to have a few waiters. Anyway everyone polite , pleasant reguardless. We started with trying to find a bottle at 100.00 or less... The sommelier is helpful.. found a Cap.- Napa Valley for 100.00. Emblem.
Next my wife and I both ordered shrimp Cocktail- the 4 shrimp are huge, suggest you split that order. We did split a Ceaser Salad , that was excellent , enough for 2. Next up- Filet Mignon .. I like Med Rare, but after discription ordered medium.. she likes med , order med well. Both came out excellent although I like a little more char. My bad for not specifing. Either way I give it a 3.9-4.0.. It's a good steak, my ranking is not easy. Also got mashed Yukon Potatoes, good.
Overall very satisfied with dinner and service.
Finally- would I go back. No. Why, to loud, to big, to expensive - dinner for 2 with 20%was 420.00. I get it's NYC, but Club A on 58th 2/3 is better value and a LOT more romantic and not as loud.
So final rank is 3.9 to solid 4..very convenient if you like steak and going to a show.
The meats are simply not worth the price-
This is a lovely restautant with very nice service but the
for the price the beef should be top notch and it is not-
We’ve been dining at Porterhouse for 5-6 years now and we’ve never been disappointed. We’ve had most of their cuts of beef, each unique, always expertly cooked and seasoned, and they’ve consistently been outstanding. This time we had the cote de boeuf - rare - and it was like velvet! The sides are excellent as well (hash browns are awesome, wild mushrooms delectable), and the wine list had a good range of options in terms of taste and affordability. The service also stands out: even when we visit with our young son the front staff and wait staff have always been gracious and accommodating, and never overbearing. Value-wise, it’s on the expensive side (hence 1 star off), but I’d suggest this for a great night out with guaranteed excellent food, ambiance, and service.
Very nice place, chic casual. beautifull view on Columbus circle and the area. Good service, expensive but this is New York... nice wine list with outrageous prices.. good meat. Awfull cooking smell wich doesnt fit with the standard expected in this kind of restaurant.
My daughter and I ate here as a special dinner before an ABT performance. There were tables open along the windows, but the hostess seated us next to the waiter stand. There was always someone standing right in front of our table. The chairs were super uncomfortable, but we weren't allowed to sit in one of the booths. They remained open our entire meal. The food was really good, but because of the poor service, we will not be eating here again.
Slow night at the restaurant, but the service was at best indifferent, and at worse negligent. The food wasn’t as well prepared as in the past, but it was still quite good.
Excellent service. Had us out in time to make our broadway show. Very considerate. Steaks cooked to perfection. We were late to our reservation due to airline delays and they still seated us.
Disappointing service from the point of arrival. Distracted and confused hostess, dirty cutlery on the table, inattentive server, wilted and browning lettuce.
Sent an email post-meal and never received a reply.
We have been many times to this restaurant and had perfect experiences unfortunately this time it was marred by our servers attitude. Mat was not professional, he was always in a hurry, wether it was to speak to us to explain a dish or to take our order. He would lounge against the back of our chair as if hanging out with his buddies at a bar. We were very surprised as this is Not the service we have had in the past nor received from the other servers that evening, especially the sommelier who was exceptionally professional.
Such an elegant and sophisticated environment with beautiful park views. I had the 3 course lunch which is an amazing deal. Service is top notch!!
Excellent food and good service in a very energetic atmosphere. Very enjoyable!
Food tastes good. Smashed potato and vegetables is needed because stack is large and you need sonething else.
Food was good but terribly overpriced..... will not go back.
Superb porterhouse cooked perfectly as ordered. Excellent friendly yet unobtrusive service. The portions are not obscenely oversized. Value? Of course prices are sky-high, but for a special splurge...
Waiter had no personality. I’ve never been to steakhouse where I was told there were only 5 temperatures you can get your steak. We wanted it cooked between medium and medium well and were told we had to pick one. My wife picked medium well with almost no pink. It came medium rare. Sent it back 3 times and was still too rare. Sent it back for good.
Prix fixe lunch is a good value. Food is delicious, but sides and chicken were skimpy in size compared to past visits. Also, no vegetables with the chicken!
Service befitting a four-star restaurant. everyone makes you feel like a valued patron.
Level of attention is perfect.
Food is excellent—best steak I've had in ages. Keen's, Wolfgang's can't keep up.
