We enjoyed Porter House three or four times before, such a nice gourmet experience we had. But this time, last week, the dinner did not have the same standard. Did you get a new chef/cook? The service is outstanding as usual. But considering the price tag, you have to go back to your prior gourmet quality. Otherwise, it makes no sense. We will enjoy the other Sofitel The Palm restaurants meanwhile, keep us posted when you get your prior chef.

In general I have to say we were very dissappointed by the service and food. We had been looking forward to eating at Porterhouse for over a month and arrived with great enthusiam. When we arrived there was no one at the greeting desk and despite waiting for almost 20 minutes and many staff passing by none of them bothered to ask us about our reservation. Eventually we had to go approach the staff and the gentleman who we did approach tried to put us off by telling us to go and wait in another área. This was poor treatment. After a while we sat down on a wobbly table and the staff wanted us to change tables without any apologies and we said we just want the table fixed. We sat at a wobbly table throughout the night. Coming on to the food, I ordered a well done rib eye and actually didn't even eat all of it because it was too chewy. This is not because of it being "well done".. I always have well done steaks and they are not like this. The dessert was good; some chocolate passion cake. So needless to say we dont plan to go back or recommend this place to anyone.

Having been in the Porterhouse a year ago. How things change. The nice steak house atmosphere had been lost. On my first full night back at the hotel i wanted to start our holiday in style. How wrong was i. We was greeted with two football matches on a big screen tv. With a large crowd shouting and cheering at the football. Hardly the atmosphere I remembered and want to return for. Very disappointing and last year i made several visits to the Porterhouse on our holiday. This year we made one. And wish I hadn’t made that one now Think you need to review your atmosphere Alan Huntley

As always perfect service and food quality. One thing - please don‘t ask several times if we have a voucher - it is annoying an reminds me of an all inclusive resort where we never would go to.

The desk situated in the corridor gives a poor first impression and not in keeping the standard on would expect. There was a que and several of the people in front of us had issues with their table not being ready, this lead to an uncomfortable conversation which we could not escape. Your team member on duty was both professional and polite however not something I wanted to see. The restaurant it’s self is pleasant perhaps a little on the dark side. Initially service was slow we waited over twenty minutes before getting any service, having said that, once we did the staff were amazing. Food was very good and well presented.

Enjoyable evening, we had the 3 course dine around menu. Chose the tenderloin steak and herb butter with roasted rosemary potatoes which was cooked as requested and tasted very good indeed. All rounded off with a salted caramel apple crumble. Service was polite, informative and efficient. Would have appreciated a few vegetables in addition to meat and potatoes but set menu forces you to choose one or the other which is a shame.

I fell inlove with the place. It is very relaxing. To be honest, their star rating online are underrated, the place is just amazing. The staff are really great, they are very accommodating and attentive. Even though it was a busy night, they kept their cool and still has time to smile and be friendly: I wasn’t expecting for my experience to be as lovely after reading some negative reviews from customers that they feel like “being rushed” to finish. I was anxious because im the type of person who likes to take my time enjoying my meal. But Im glad that “being rushed” didnt happen with me. I had a great time. It was an amazing dinner. I very much loved the goat cheese salad and the steak. Looking forward to be back soon.

Bad Service, but the food was really good. Long times waiting. Porterhouse: 1* The World Eatery: 4* Moana: 5* The Service in the other Restaurants at Sofitel are much better. Special Thanks to the Service Crew of The World eatery and Moana.

We went to porterhouse for my Husbands Birthday.I had made the reservation weeks in advance. However they did nothing special, not even write a small happy birthday on the dessert ordered. We went for the three course menu based on the menu seen online. However when we went to the restaurant they did'nt have the lamb shank and said that the menu has changed. It is difficult to believe that a restaurant of this stature does not have such a basic ingredient. I do not eat beef, duck nor salmon and did not want to order the salmon or chicken. The restaurant gave me no choice but to order the seabream.Now coming to the food the delicate seabream was overcooked and under seasoned and so were the sides.The vegetable hot pot was undercooked and under seasoned.The roasted potatoes were old , under seasoned and tasted dry. My husband ordered the braised short ribs which were ok, the meat quality was poor and shreddy/dry. Also with regards to the appetisers we ordered the jumbo lump crab cake and the stuffed baby squid.The crab cake was an over processed patty where you could not feel any crab, also no one informed us the stuffed squid was a cold dish and a salad! Also out of the three desserts on the menu, we ordered two the trocadero and the lemon tart.They again did not have the trocadero, so we were forced to order two lemon tarts. The service was fine but we were heavily disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. The only saving grace was the lemon tart which was sublime. Will not recommend this place to others.
