“Excellent service and good steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The steaks at Porter House are not cheap, but they are very good - tender and cooked to perfection. The service is what make this place stand out - the waiter and sommelier where very attentive without hovering, and when we asked to be relocated as a friend in a wheelchair was joining us it was done without a fuss. The desserts didn't match the steak in terms of quality - while the apple pie was delicious, the coconut cream cake was a bit dry.

“Best Steak ive ever eaten!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We went to Porter House on Columbus Circle, only as it was near our hotel, it was Saturday night and packed out, but we only had to wait 10 minutes. The staff are amazing, the owner came and spoke to us and was delightful. I had the Cowboy Steak and my daughter the boneless. It was unbeliveable. Yes it was expensive, but I have paid the same for worse meals, it may well have ben the cocktails that bumped the bill up, im any event worth every penny. Must go to when in NYC

“Excellent steaks, worth the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had a most enjoyable dinner at Porter House. Pricey, but the best steaks - a filet mignon and strip steak - cooked medium, to perfection. Be aware though that portions are large, at least I think a 10oz fillet steak is large. Pleasant ambience, not too noisy even though the restaurant was pretty full. Attentive service and good advice on wine selection (half bottles seemed comparatively expensive). Only criticism was that although the accompanying broccoli and fries were cooked perfectly, there was FAR too much garlic on the broccoli. Overall a good, honest steakhouse experience. Recommended.

“Great food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Had lunch the prix-fix lunch. Great food at an amazing price $24. Caesar salad was very fresh and perfectly dressed. We had the roast chicken and salmon, which were perfectly cooked!!!! The sorbet for dessert topped everything off. Service was top notch. Had a window table with abgreat view of Central Park.. Wish i was in town longer, so I could eat there again. Kudos!!
