Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Everthing was 99% awesomely awesome, food was on point, the mixed platters were the bomb, (salmon couldve been a tad bigger for the price, but it was devine, who knew salmon and mash spud goes? Lol not me💁‍♀️)..that 1% letdown...was only the jugs of drinks which were flat and mostly soda water, BUT they did correct it when told. Appreciate those happy servers.

We all enjoyed the atmosphere and the delicious food. There were quite a few of us so we understood it would be a little wait however it was nice that we were able to have a few drinks while we were waiting. One of our...quest’s didn’t arrive until later however they were all ok with this. The service was fantastic always with a smile. We had a large group so it would have been nice to be seated away from the one of the entrance doors. Overall it was a lovely experience and we would definitely revisit.More

We have eater at this restaurant before, and it was really good. Last night we went again and it was really disappointing. We had booked a table for 4. When we got there they had given us one of the really small tables. I asked...if we can pleas get one of the larger 4 seater tables. I was told " we are expecting to be busy tonight, I will have to ask" We were then left in the middle of the restaurant while while the young lady ran to the back. She came out, then spoke to someone else and and and. Left us standing there for a good 5 minutes. Finally we were 'allowed' to take one of the unbooked booths. I just find this really annoying. We went to the trouble of booking a table, but we get punished for our trouble with a small table and having to wait. If we had just walked in, we could have gotten any table we wanted and would have been seated immediately (like the group who came after us). Following this, there were flies everywhere, with no measures in place to even try and sort them. The food and drinks took for ever and the dessert even longer. We were there at 6, ordered quickly but only left at 8. Main course and dessert, no special orders or anything strange. Just waiting around. If you are planning on "being so busy" that it is an issue for us to choose another table, should you not make sure you have enough staff to run the place efficiently?More

Porterhouse Grill is definitely the best restaurant in Pakuranga. The food is very delicious and the portions are decent size. Most importantly the tables are not very close to eachother so that you can enjoy your dinner without listening other people's conversations. They play nice...dinner music with just perfect volume that you don't have to shout to communicate. Overall it was an excellent experience.More
