For nearly 90 years, The Third Avenue Center has housed the old San Mateo Theater, as
well as many fine restaurants - including La Reserve and Bogie's At the Theater. Today,
you will encounter our gorgeous steakhouse: PorterHouse - a hidden gem in downtown San
Mateo. Since our doors opened in 2007, we have continued the tradition of fine dining on
Third Avenue. Our focus is to provide our guests with immeasurable hospitality through
our inviting environment, private dining rooms, attentive and knowledgeable service,
exceptional beef, and our selection of fine wines...
Our Dinner Menu celebrates the finest Mid-West beef available, grilled over an open fire.
Our butcher proudly dry ages our Certified Angus Beef steaks in-house up to 50 days. To
accompany your steak, our Wine List celebrates the renowned wines of Napa Valley,
Willamette Valley, France and Italy. In addition to our steak and chop offerings, our
Chef provides for a daily selection of fresh fish and seafood...
Whether you are having a romantic dinner, entertaining some friends and family, having a
business meeting, or hosting a private party, we will provide you with the ideal setting
for your next outing.
