From entering the restaurant you felt welcome. We sat in a private dining area. The had to make room for more guests arriving late. The salad was very good. I do like to have a choice of dressing. I got the filet mignon. It was prepared very well. Medium rare. We were not given the option of temperature. A very... More

The drinks were just okay. The food wasn't great. The bisque was thin with no chunks of lobster. Ditto with the cream of mushroom with no chunks of crab meat. The meat was okay. The crab cake was cooked perfectly. We did not have dessert. Not really impressed especially since the costs for entrees are high.

My son and his fiancee are getting married at Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square, and we have been searching for a convenient venue for their rehearsal dinner. We looked up and down routes 3 and 252 and Rt. 30 in Malvern and Berwyn. No one mentioned The Porch at the Lamb. We literally heard about it from a friend right... More

I have visited The Porch twice in the past 2 months. Both times were for lunch. The service was, on both occasions, impeccable and the food above average. Try the Chicken Pot Pie. It's delicious! Would not hesitate to recommend.

I have been to this restaurant in the past and had good experiences and left a good review. Last night my husband and I went here and boy has this place changed for the worse!

Nine of us came here after a family funeral at Opening of Business time. Although they apparently weren't expecting us (although our meal had been prearranged) the staff recovered nicely, put some tables together quickly and seated us without much delay. Service was excellent, and the menu had many interesting choices. Our meals came hot and nicely prepared and the... More

Ate at the Porch on a weekend evening after a friend's recommendation. We were not impressed. The brie appetizer was very good, I admit. The crab deviled eggs were not; just large balls of crab meat in hard-boiled egg whites. Completely lacking in taste. I had the short ribs; the sauce had no flavor except for chewy chunks of bacon.... More

It was necessary for my family to have a luncheon in this restaurant after a family funeral. Even though it was a sad day the staff and food at The Porch made it better. The room that was reserved for my family was just the right size, the tables were set for six, eight and ten, some round, some long.... More

Went for a luncheon after the burial of a family member at the nearby Peter and Paul Cemetery. We were in a large room on the first floor. Pleasant décor. Salads were already on the tables.
