Amazing Value, Great Quality – The price fixe menu is about 45 dollars, and you get an appetizer, two drinks (house wines are pretty great), an entree and dessert. I love coming here. I particularly love the salmon quesadillas. I've tried two types of steaks, and they are both good. I love the mini-doughnuts dessert.
Come for the enormous steak, stay for the Cotton Candy – Its hard to believe that this restaurant isn't better known. Its in the heart of Beverly Hills, just off La Cienega's Restaurant Row and I have driven by it for probably 10 years, but last night was our first dining experience here. And I assure you that we will be back!!!!! Its low-key, not pretentious or overpriced like Wolfgang's on Canon or stuffy like Ruth Chris' (although I like the filet there too). Not a scene, where you are going to see & be seen. Its a true steakhouse restaurant in every way. The service was very attentive (thank you Chad), the drinks & wine were good, the Onion soup was perfect (not too salty like so many others), and the Porterhouse steak was delicious and presented beautifully, with the filet minon on one side and the new york steak on the other side of the T-bone. Cut to share and enjoy!!!! We had Mushrooms & Spinach as our sides, both were super! Dessert was also delish, we had the Chocolate Molton Cake and an apple tart, both served with Vanilla Ice Cream. But the best part, was when Chad brought out the Cotton Candy lantern tower (for lack of a better word), which was fun, beautiful and yes yummy! Its brought us back to our childhoods, as my husband and I reminisced about our own memories of Cotton Candy. This is a great place for a family gathering, we are planning my father-in-law's 80th birthday here in the private room and also a great place to bring out of town guests. Best of all, everything I described is part of the pre-fixed menu, which was $45 per person. Where else in LA, can you eat & drink like royalty for less than $100 per couple? Enjoy!!!!!
Nice resteraunt – The interior is nice. The steak are great. Price are reasonable too. Good for dating. Try to book yr reservation early otherwise no seats will be available.
Porterhouse – this place has a great atmosphere, and a great selection of food! i always get a steak here, medium rare and it always comes out perfect! the service has been great each time i have frequented this place.
A Terrific Place for a Great Meal at an Incredible Price – I have been following the Citysearch reviews of Porterhouse for a while, piqued by the several discount letters I received in the mail from the restaurant. Although reviews are pretty "mixed" here, I decided to try it for myself last night. It was a fantastic evening! Our group of four ordered the prixe fix meal and everything was spot-on. Agree with the reader that said the onion soup was hot - scalding! But once it cooled down (and it did take a while), it was very tasty. Great bread enhanced by the various dipping sauces: excellent house-made olive tapanade, loved the roasted whole garlic for spreading. Main dishes were one rib-eye, one bone-in NY and one shared 20 oz Porterhouse. Steaks were perfectly cooked and the porterhouse was delicious. I've eaten at most of the high-end steak houses in town and this was comparable. Sides were also tasty: nice touch of nutmeg in the creamed corn, fries were awesome and garlic mashed potatoes not too garlicky (I skipped tasting the steamed brocoli - not a fan). Deserts were the apple tart (very good), creme brulee (okay) and chocolate lava cake (incredible!). At the end of the meal, I mentioned our friends had just gotten engaged and the waiter brought out the cotton candy (with a candle) AND four glasses of champagne. Here's what makes Porterhouse Bistro so very easy to recommend: the check! Four dinners, eight cocktails, salad, great steak, wonderful sides, desert, champagne - under $200. You won't find that at The Palm. We will be returning again soon.

Food was GREAT!!!! – The food was great. Me and my husband went for his bday. He is a pickie eater. We had the meal for 2. He had the steak and I had the fish. Everything was good from the bread to the dessert. Now service that's another story but it was not that bad but is showed in her tip. I would go there again in a heartbeat....
Steaks were mediocre – I was expecting great things after reading all of the positive reviews. My wife and I both ordered the ribeye steaks and we were very disappointed. For one thing, at a restaurant of this purported caliber, I shouldn't feel like I HAVE to drench my steak in steak sauce. There was almost no flavor to the steak. I was shocked. It was literally one of the worst steaks I have ever had. Atmosphere was okay, but overshadowed by the poor main course. We did enjoy the onion soup. The waiters were very attentive and amiable.
