When asked, as I often am, for my opinion on the best steakhouse in New York, I often hem and haw. The meat may be better at Minetta Tavern, the sides at BLT Prime, the atmosphere (and nothing else) at Peter Luger. But for the overall package of flawless service, great meat, and by far the loveliest and most relaxing room of any steakhouse I know, the answer is surely Porterhouse New York. Here's a tip: go have a steak sandwich and an Old Fashioned at the bar, during the day. It's a great NYC experience.
A great new steakhouse that really delivers the goods – Just went back to Porter House for my third visit and it was as good if not even better this time around. we go to a lot of steakhouses, all the big names, and think Porter House is really holding its own. Its not only a great steakhouse with real deal prime dry aged beef, but it has so much more-- fish, seafood, great sides, potatoes. This time around we had a first rate dry aged prime porterhouse steak which was terrific. A generous and fresh, fresh fresh, starter of the cold seafood platter, you know, oyster, crab, shrimp, very fresh seafood.
We were a big group so there were some spot-on salads to start, the scallops with capers were great and the crab cake with creole sauce, too. First time we went, we ordered the Chili Rubbed Rib Eye, really great, and original too, and the best rib steak I have ever had. Dessert are a little bit of a let down though the Chocolate devil's food is excellent.
Great wine list, not overly large, but well thought out, good variety of selections. Wonderful bar for cocktails, very busy for after work drinks. Well made and generous drinks.
Service is very good, not too over bearing, they don't push anything on you, but good , solid professional service, with attentive staff.
Great atmosphere, love the room, very warm and welcoming wood and leather--
All in all an excellent experience--can't wait to return. definetly a new favorite place.
Truly disappointed! – We went to Porter House for restaurant week expecting the same quality of food as their regular menu. However, our steak was over cooked and burnt when it was supposed to be medium well - it tasted something like I would get from Denny's. My jaw was hurting when chewing the steak. The fries tasted like they just purchased from McDonalds. The Mac and Cheese tasted like something you would get from a cafeteria. However, the view was beautiful and the water glasses were squeaky clean - that's why I was generous in giving this establishment a rating of 3.5 out of 10. In addition, we had to wait 20 minutes even though we had a reservation. All in all, I was expecting more from a restaurant that is located in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.
Recommendation - not worth the cost.
Great food, nice atmosphere, quiet location (Time Warner Center), good service – Went here on Monday night as part of restaurant week. My friend got the restaurant week set menu and I went off the menu a la carte. She had the ceasar salad, steak frites and finished with the devil's food cake. I had the crab cake to start, then the chilli rubbed ribeye and shared her desert :-)
Salad was very tasty, MAYBE a touch too much dressing. The crab cake was very good, very fresh. Her steak frites was also very good (I think they used a strip steak to make it). My chilli rubbed ribeye was very interesting. The chilli was maybe a TOUCH too salty, but the heat of it made an interesting contrast to the warm and tasty steak. Desert was good, not outstanding, but good.
This is a good sort of corporate setting (probably because of it's location in the Time Warner Center). There are other nice "power" restaurants like Per Se in the vicinity. I'd definitly recommend it if you like steak (they definitly know how to cook it!) We had ours done medium rare, apparently rare is red, but cool in the middle, and medium rare is red, but warm in the middle.
Overall, a very good experience. It ended up being about $50 for each of us (we just split the bill since we tried each other's food and shared). Not bad at all for the quality. I also had a martini though ($14) haha that was just good in general :-)
Good try, but not good – If you want to feel like you left the island of Manhattan and have traveled to Sin City, go to Porter House.
The room is beautiful and a very comfortable setting and staff very accomidating, though a bit overly.
We could have done away with the nasty comments by the hostess when we arrived and told her there was a change in number in our party.
The staff was a little slow and not very helpful when asked for recommendations, but the room, company and views made up for it at this point. As for the food, think they are confused it their concept, do they want to be a steak house or fine dining? The apps small but good and tasty.
Entrees arrived though most of them were cold, even the sides were cold. Never been to a steak house where the steak arrives (and other entrees) cold. We asked to heat up and they returned it just warm. The other steaks though decent were not cooked to the requested levels.
Desserts were okay. Cheesecake very good and would be better if not almost frozen.
The best part of the meal was the wine that was recommended, excellent choice.
Though everything started off fabulous with the room and service, we were even talking about taking clients back and out of town guests, spiraled down from the initial feelings.
Perhaps in time they will find themselves and fill the beautiful room.
Big steak is king at this carnivore's sanctuary in the Time Warner Center. – The Scene
The newest restaurant from Michael Lomonaco, former executive chef at Windows on the World, marries the masculine steakhouse to the upscale mall trappings of the Time Warner Center. Rat Pack-friendly touches like massive circular booths, brown and tan leather trimmings, and modernized wagon-wheel chandeliers placate expense-account-wielding suits in the dining room, while the front bar area with flat-screen TVs appeases overtired shoppers looking for a wine break.
The titular cut of meat appears in veal, pork and even monkfish incarnations, but the classic beef rendition fares just fine. The giant slab of meat, nicely charred around the edges and pink as a peony inside, is listed as serving two but could probably feed three. But other than a few exceptions--homey mac and cheese, chunky crab cakes, decadent mud pie sundae--the rest of the menu pales in comparison, especially a wimpy tongue salad and a rainbow trout drowning in butter.
ANOTHER AWESOME NEW YORK STEAK PLACE – WHAT A GREAT NEW PLACE FOR GREAT STEAK ALBEIT NYC HAS MANY OPTIONS. I TOOK MY WIFE THERE FOR HER BIRTHDAY AND PRETTY MUCH ORDERED EVERYTHING ON THE MENU. THE STANDOUTS WERE THE NY STRIP,4 MAC AND CHEESE, YUKON POTATOES, AND THE HUGE MUD PIE DESSERT TO FINISH US OFF. THE SERVICE WAS BETTER THAN MOST PLACES, FRIENDLY AND ACCOMODATING. WE ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH !!!
