We went out to dinner on a Saturday night at Porterhouse.
We enjoyed wine with dinner.
For our starters we had their spianch salad and french onion soup.
We enjoyed steak for dinner.
For dessert, we loved their chocolate mousse.
Service was very good.
Went here last night with friends and had a great meal. Everyone shared small plates but I had the filet which was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend this place if you are in San Mateo. Service was spot on also.
Very good dry aged steak!
Cant fail the restaurant for their quality of meats, perfectly dry aged beef, offered in various traditional cuts.
Unfortunately our new york strip came overcooked whilst all our friends had theirs cooked to perfection - thus no excellent rating this...time round.
Great soufflés for desert!More
We arrived in time for Happy Hour and enjoyed perfectly made cocktails at $8 ea. Dinner of "Bone in Ribeye" was everything I had hoped it would be and a perfect Medium Rare. Service was impeccable with no hovering.
Superb steaks and lamb. Ate here in their private dining space last night. The restaurant is set back from the street and can be hard to miss but their steaks and wine menus are excellent. Prices mid to high but worth every cent.
My second visit to Porterhouse in San Mateo confirmed that here is a restaurant that understands that to do a few things perfectly is preferable to doing lots of things to a lesser level.
A dry-aging cabinet just inside the front door tells you that...here is a restaurant dedicated to great beef above all else.
We ordered a 30oz porterhouse steak to share. It was served cooked to perfection with a truly unctuous red wine sauce and a delicious stuffed twice baked potato, and that really was all that was needed.
The wine list is impressive, the desserts are great, the service is friendly and efficient, but those steaks are the star of the show!More
Returned again. Best steak house in area. And other items also excellent. Service is excellent. Owner and host Bruno is great. Suggest arriving at 5 PM for dinner. Not crowded. Free parking in lot in alley...
