The food was great although served a bit rushed. We sat at 8:00 and were done even with coffee and dessert by 9:30. Not on a Saturday night. Should have been at least a 2 hour sitting. The only real
Complaint was the dessert. Not good. Cheesecake dry and sundaes were ok. They should improve upon that especially with Manhattan prices. Overall I would go back. I will give the restaurant a break as Covid has caused employment shortages everywhere.

They called us at 7.45 pm (we had an 8.30 reservation) to tell us their kitchen was closing at 8.30, could we come sooner? We did our best, our dinner felt rushed which is not what you'd prefer for a restaurant of this caliber. The food was excellent, the staff was very nice, but certainly not what we wanted for a birthday dinner.

Our annual holiday dinner never fails at Porter House. The menu and price seem to have changed and increase but we would still come here every year.

We try to eat at Porter House Bar and Grill at least once a month. The service is always outstanding. We were lucky to get a booth next to the window as the views are great and the noise level is less. But you should go for the food, we have tried many of the dishes they offer and they are all wonderful. I love the steak dishes, my wife love the seafood dishes. Try to save room for the desserts, they are large and outstanding. Go and enjoy!!

Espectacular la calidad de los alimentos. El risotto de porcini con trufa fue el mejor que probé en mi vida! La carne espectacular!!
Tal vez deberían revisar la iluminación para que sea un poco más cálido el ambiente. Solo eso, lo demás 20 puntos todo

My wife and I shared the Porterhouse steak, cooked rare and sliced for two. I’ve been going to steak houses for fifty years, and the porterhouse we had last night was the best I’ve ever had. Service was very good; the sommelier in particular was especially helpful. Nice, relaxed atmosphere, not faux-clubby as so many elite steakhouses are these days. The tab was considerable, but actually a little less than I expected, since we had a round of drinks, a nice bottle of wine, appetizers and three sides in addition to the porterhouse.

Atmosphere was great! Service was a little slow at times, but extra staff stepped in. Food was good, but not great. I ordered a fillet cooked medium well and it came out red inside but charred on the outside.

From the great views
To the top notch professional service
To over the top great food.
The steak tartare a recommendation from the server was the best I’ve ever had as was the tuna tartare great apps to start a phenomenal meal.
The seasoned build shop was as described absolutely perfect.
What rounded it out the entire experience was Mr. Brown constantly checking on every table in the restaurant and making sure that everything we had on our table was perfect as to order.
Chef Michael you about done yourself with this place

We were seated in the elevated section around the windows but at a two-person table. It’s very tight between the tables along the windows and the ones along the railing and we were on the end so had lots of service staff walking by. But the food was excellent. From the bacon appetizer to the filet mignon, the cocktails to glass of wine, we savored it all. The finale, dessert, was also great - the chocolate Sunday mashup.

Selected for its proximity to Jazz at Lincoln Center and it certainly is convenient. Service was good but not great. Food was ok but not really tasty. (Brussels sprouts side was tired. Porterhouse for 2 - eh for $162.). Every little thing is extra & wine list…. Fine. Perhaps we are the problem because we eat & drink so well at home, or we didn’t order well? Maybe better to come as a larger party?

We brought our largest client to a formal dinner and I requested a table by the window. We got the best table in the place directly overlooking the circle and Central Park. The food was outstanding, the wine and service were tremendous. We will be back

It's a pleasure to return. The food is always exceptional; the wait staff was most attentive. Jen P was our server and she saw to each detail and need with precision. Our wine steward was helpful in determining our likes. It was so good that we ordered a second for our table.
Celebrating our friends' 33rd anniversary was culminated in a cake with a special message. It was Truly a delightful evening, pre- Jazz concert. We had other friends who joined us at the theatre and we all returned for after show drinks, as well.

One of my very favorite restaurants in Manhattan. Well done.

Despite having a reservation, we had to wait for an hour before we were seated. Then our waiter told us to hurry an order because the kitchen was closing soon. Then our waiter disappeared for 20 minutes and we had to ask multiple runners to get our waiter so we could order.
Food was good but not the service I expected.

Porterhouse is the most beautiful and decadent steakhouses in the city. We had great service, great food and a lively atmosphere. Service was well-paced and everything was delivered as requested. This was my mother’s first restaurant out in NYC for over 2 years and it did not disappoint.
