    Served by Riannon. We had booked a table, which was ready and waiting. Very prompt and pleasant service. Food arrived hot. Starters were lovely. All mains where very tasty, my husband and son said the steak was wonderful. An overall lovely experience.

    Great food, very friendly & professional staff. We had the Wagyu and it was divine, it was also lovely to see the dry aged steaks in their salt room.

    I have been quite a few times for Sunday Roast (twice in the last two weeks!). Always go for the Roast Beef as it’s my favourite and it is always delicious and the veg too. I always recommend to my friends and every visit I have brought someone new so they get hooked too. It’s just around the corner from me too which is perfect. I look forward coming back very soon :)

    Booked a last minute table for a Friday night. Nice welcome on arrival and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend and visit again. We were served by Sophia. When so many other restaurants in Southampton have let their service slip this place certainly hasn’t.

    Unfortunately our evening was spoilt by a 1 hour wait for starters it seemed we had been forgotten - when it finally arrived king prawns were very undercooked with no garlic chilli as per menu, we were disappointed with steaks which were both mediocre and certainly didn't live up to expectation from a supposedly high end Steakhouse. On a positive the decor and ambiance is really nice, the staff were apologetic about the mix up with forgotten starters but unfortunately was too late as we felt our date night was ruined

    Yet again great service and great food. We travel from Salisbury to Porters as it’s my wife’s favourite restaurant. The staff are lovely, always welcoming. They have a great balance of being attentive but also giving you your space to enjoy your food. The food is absolutely stunning. Highly recommended.

    Food wasn’t that great I’ve got to say. It was disappointing as I’ve been here twice before and it was good but this time it wasn’t up to standard. The prawns weren’t fresh and the tempura mushrooms tasted like an oily mess. The steaks were all a bit cold but one was very cold and the fries also. The service was okay but they weren’t very attentive. The wine was too warm also (we ordered white) for £30+ wine you’d expect it to be cold. Not really happy at all with our experience, it was a family celebration and important occasion for us and the quality of our food and drinks put a damper on the entire evening.

    Shame that it's a bit hit and miss with the food. Last meal porchetta was all fat like it was the first slice with about 10% meat, carrots were hard and parsnips were soft

    Thoroughly underwhelming. Staff didn't have a clue, food was average at best, ordered the T Bone sharing platter at £90, really poor and overpriced. Website states "fine dining", it absolutely is not.

    After a bad start with the steaks being cooked incorrectly the manageress totally redeemed Porters steakhouse. From getting the order recooked and adding a few extra bonus items to improve our dining experience we walked away with our faith restored in Porters steakhouse.

    Lovely place very polite and helpful staff food was very nice so much flavour packed into our steaks unfortunately my partners steak came out slightly over done, but they staff and manager was very quick and helpful to resolve the problem and offered us complementary desserts and drinks for our inconvenience. Pleasant visit and even though the slightly over done steak we will most definitely be making a return visit, if it wasn't for the extremely polite and well mannered staff if sure this outcome would have been very differnt

    I doubt very much this place gets repeat business, more interested in serving drinks at the bar rather then their dining guests. I have never eaten such a chewy rib eye steak, the Mac and cheese resembled pasta in a white sauce. The cheese on the cheese board was lovely, however waiting nearly 45 minutes for the bread and crackers to come Is ridiculous and the excuse of “the toaster has broken” even more laughable.

    I was recommended Porters by a friend. Unfortunately the service let it down. We had to ask for a menu 20 minutes after we arrived. It took a long time for our drink and food orders to be taken following this. After our main we asked for the dessert menu which sadly never came. We left after waiting for it for another 15 minutes- the restaurant was not busy. The food quality was good and was very nicely presented.

    Food was amazing, the steak was one of the best I’ve ever had - real melt in your mouth meat. Al the staff were really nice and friendly, which helped it feel classy but also relaxed. The only downside was that it was quite quiet, but maybe people had stayed in due to the storm.
