BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES. EACH VISIT WAS VERY PLEASANT. FOOD WAS COMPARABLY PRICED. PORTIONS WERE FILLING AND SATISFYING. EVEN THEIR APPETIZERS WERE SCRUMPTIOUS. THIS IS A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN TAKE SOMEONE AND BE CONFIDENT THAT YOU WILL LEAVE A LASTING POSITIVE IMPRESSION. I LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXT VISIT.

Pros: VALUE, SELECTION, PORTION

.

While value is important, a restaurant must also deliver quality product. In almost every case, Porterhouse hits the mark. We ordered the prix fixe porterhouse dinner for two, and greatly enjoyed our tapenades, salads, steak, fries, and desserts (including the cotton candy!). The house red wines were surprisingly good, and all the portions were very reasonable.

Our only disappointment was with the average mashed potatoes and the inconsistent service (which was rushed at certain times and other times glacial). However, the service was always very friendly, so this isn't much to complain about. If you are looking for a decent non-chain steak dinner in pleasant environment, we recommend this restaurant.

I found the listing for the restaurant on Citysearch and decided to try it out on a recent trip to L.A. The reviews couldn't be more right one. This place not only has excellent food, stellar service, but it is also an incredible value and fun. The prix fixe dinner really is the best deal, giving you everything your little heart could desire. My favorite part of the night? The cotton candy cake brought out just before dessert. It was so much fun! I will definitely go back the next time I'm visiting L.A. A+++

i can't believe i didn't get a chance to try Porterhouse earlier than last night. i went for my first time to celebrate my bf's & my sis's bday's. everyone loved it... the food, the setting, the service, just about everything there. on top of the delicious food, we had so much fun playing with the cotton candy cake, but of course, we did ate it after all. although the other reviews say the fries are good, i personally recommend their sauteed mushrooms more.

We stopped in for an impromptu dinner on a weeknight because I had a craving for steak. I had driven by this restaurant many times and always wondered about it but never got around to trying it until now. The prix fixe dinner is really the best inexpensive dinner in town. The steak was juicy, the portions plentiful, and the service was friendly. Can't beat it for the price (in fact, I'm still amazed by it!). I'll definitely be back.

My girlfriends threw me a surprise birthday party 2 weeks ago. There were 12 of us. We all had a great time there. Love their Porterhouse streak, their house sauce is great. Dessert is awesome. We also had a really cool and attentive waiter. The prix fixe menu also include two drinks! What a deal! The only down side is hard to find street parking in Beverly Hills, although valet is only $3.50.

The starter platter was amazing...porterhouse steak was juicy...onion soup was to die for! Only bad part was the service...the waitress would forget every time we asked for something!

Pros: Great food, Good deal!

let me put it this way - the lady at the table next to us called her waitress and asked incredulously, "are you sure this was only $64?"

where in l.a. can you get an appetizer, salad (not just the romaine or iceburg), gorgeous & delicious meat with two sides (the french fries are great!), two drinks (full bar! alcoholic or soft drink), a yummy dessert, plus a huge beehive of complimentary cotton candy (a successful nostalgic touch) for $29.95? and it's all in an expensive-looking dining establishment?

the best date place - first class experience at a ridiculously low price. no wonder the staff is so friendly - i'm pretty sure the diners overtip to compensate.

(no, i do not work for this restaurant or know anybody that does! we genuinely love this place.)

Cons: mediocre bathroom, (really, nothing!)

AMATEUR wait staff - didn't know menu/didn't care, avoided eye contact so wouldn't have to refill water - had to ask for eating utensils TWICE!! - hard to get waitress to stick around for the whole order - then was grossly overcharged! Sat 5 at table for 4 - sore elbows.

The Porterhouse Bistro serves the most incredible steak I have ever had and the fixed price menu is one of the best deals in LA. For only $30, you get two drinks, appetizer, steak, one side, and dessert. My wife and I opted to share the 30oz Porterhouse and it did not disappoint. The house steak sauce complements the meat perfectly and as for the sides--the french fries and the sauteed mushrooms are a must. We ended our meal with the Chocolate Lava Cake, which oozes warm chocolate as you cut into it. Overall, it was a very enjoyable dining experience and rivals such fine steakhouses as the Palm and Arnie Morton's.

I love Porterhouse Bistro! The wait staff is very professional and knowledgeable. We were served immediately after we were seated-our server took our drink order answered questions about the menu and recommended a bottle of wine. Porterhouse Bistro is a nice romantic restaurant. I hgighly recommend it for intimate dinners as well as dinners with friends and family! The steaks are great too!

Great restaurant if you are in the mood for good atmosphere an a serious meal, specifically STEAK. I felt like John Candy in Uncle Buck with the size of the steak I was served. The flavor was really good and juicy. The $29.95 deal is the way to go, especially if you're on a date. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to going back soon. Oh, and the service was really good also. Nice server, knowledgable and with no attitude. Refreshing for LA.

Finally seated at 7:30 for a 7 reservation, however they do not rush you at all once seated, the $9 salad is not even good fertilizer, the $7 french fries are superb and a must. Almost a meal in itself. Steak is superb. Service is ok the girls are very busy and dont do water service enough. When you are seated say it is your birthday which qualifies you for the COTTON CANDY desert which is ,free, and fun. The atmosphere elegant casual but noisy. steak could feed two if you are not steak freaks. Ask for Rhonda as a waiteress, she will not become a Siamese twin to you table, but who needs the type that ask how you like the Broccili seven times. By the way, the water is great and compliments the meal so dont load up on cokes or ice tea. The bread is also outstanding.

This newly opened restaurant is pretty good. There are a handful of options on the menu...with one main course...Porterhouse steak of course! The night we went, they actually had a special - some sort of fish - and it looked quite good. The sides are awesome but the best part is desert. Complements of the house is a huge pile of cotton candy (flavors vary), but this shouldn't keep you from trying the brownie they have. It's truly amazing. Good eats!

Open, Light and Airy place. Nice decor, confortable chairs. I loved the STEAK...!!!!!! I love it RARE, and it came that way. Finally a place that cooks it to my liking. I will be back. If you're looking for inexpensive this is not your place, but if you want a great steak you will not find better. Thanks, Patti

Pros: grade of beef-great, open,light,roomy

.

The rib-eye steak has long been my favorite cut of meat for it's great flavor and texture but if everyone served steak the way Porterhouse Bistro does I would quickly change my mind. Cooking quality beef is an art form as many a poor tasting steak that started with a "prime grade" label will attest. PB has mastered this art with their extreme focus on a single cut. Cooking on a grill at over 800 degrees and serving it up on a very hot metal plate make a big difference to what ends up in your mouth. The olive oil, garlic and herb drizzle ensures even those who order "well done" won't be eating beef jerkey. I will be back to the Porterhouse Bistro the next time I am in the mood for a great piece of meat.
