Morton's The Steakhouse - Arlington
Business DinnerComments in my on-line reservation noted that this was a business dinner and requested a quiet and somewhat secluded area of seating. The event coordinator made the point to call me and offer the use of a private dining room with personal server. Excellent meal and outstanding service. Attention to detail and needs of our party. Perfect ambiance and privacy.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAll staff attentive, welcoming,All staff attentive, welcoming, anticipated needs and made our Mother's Day celebration a memorable experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurants.One of our favorite restaurants. We've been going for years. Never a bad meal and great service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!The food was spot on what I was expecting! It was a bit pricey but that works! The manager came up to my group because it was our dinner prom to take a picture of us. They then have us copies of the pictures! The food was delicious! The restaurant is dark but not bad. I will return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service. Best steaks.First time at the famous Morton's. The steaks did not disappoint. The 16oz ribeye med/rare was perfect. An 8oz filet med/rare came out a little too done for our taste. The staff didn't question it and returned about 60 seconds later with a fresh piping hot truly medium rare filet that was hot and red in the middle, juicy and perfect. Of course expensive, but one pays for the service, too. Several visits by the manager to check on us both at the bar prior to the meal and during. A dropped knife on the floor was replaced with a clean one within about 10 seconds by a stafff person nearby. Recently renovated at this location, they said. Nice and neat, dark ambience with modern chandaliers. Outstanding service and highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty GoodThe service was great. The server was very attentive and really knew the menu. It was a little dark, but that was the atmosphere they were going for. The filet mignon was cooked as ordered, but it was missing something. I think I prefer the way it's seasoned at Ruth's Chris over Morton's, but it was still pretty good. I would go back to try something else on the menu.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Scott was justOur waiter Scott was just excellent - courteous, warm, professional and attentive to our needs since it was our 1 year anniversary. I can't say enough about the experience. I can't wait to go back! The food was just absurdly delicious. And the drinks were on par as well. The whole staff at MORTON's is just so nice. Again, thanks MORTON'S for everything.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good service in Arlington'sVery good service in Arlington's Morton's Steakhouse. I enjoyed the meal- exceptional food even down to the Bibb salad. We were visiting the town and hadnt eaten in a Morton's in years. We are glad we decided to eat there. Very happy with everything.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was not my first timeThis was not my first time dining at a Morton's, though it was my first time dining at this one in particular. I have not always had a great experience at Morton's--particularly the one in Richmond. The Crystal City Morton's redeemed their namesake. I would recommend this Morton's to the people I know. I plan on dining here again!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe newly remodeled Morton'sThe newly remodeled Morton's in Crystal City is just elegant. The staff, as always, is tremendous. They have also made a lot of amazing menu changes - no more pushing a cart around to demo the food. This had really brought the dining experience up a notch, and made room for some fabulous new menu items.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Celebration!Six of us celebrated a birthday on Sat, 4/27. We were greeted warmly at the door and shown to a private room with confetti on the table, a balloon bouquet and personalized "Happy Birthday" menus. Our waiter, Greg was very attentive and every Morton's Team member offered birthday greeting and checked on our evening. All the food was excellent, well prepared and presented: Chopped Salad, Morton's Salad, Lobster Bisque, Crab Legs, Bone-in Rib eyes and must-have matchstick fries. Desserts were shared: Grand Marnier Soufflé, Carrot Cake and Chocolate Layer cake. Any leftover scrap was scooped into someone's doggie bag. Morton's does dinner right - every time! There is a reason they are our go-to restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for a special occasionSteaks that melt in your mouth. Nicely prepared sides. It's all a la carte, but it's delicious. Don't expect it to be cheap!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite server, Travis,Our favorite server, Travis, is now behind the bar as well - great move by the management!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my husband here forI took my husband here for his birthday and he absolutely loved it!!!!!

First time visiting but Im willing to try again after researching their menu options.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience. GreatAmazing experience. Great wine list, steaks good perfectly. Staff and management were wonderful4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an excellent experience...The wonderful experience at Mortons Arlington startes with the the general manager, Kimberly, who always remembers a face and warmly welcomes you back to the restaurant. The bartenders, Colleen and Scott are some of the best in the area and the food is always prepared perfectly. In a day and age where I have seen a dramatic and alarming decline in customer service and satisfaction, Morton's Arlington restores my faith that fine dining still exists.
As a side note, I love the new decor and not wait to see the final product.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMorton's Arlington Excels AgainWe had a group of 9 people and they gave us a private room - excellent as the noise level was just right. Our server Travis was as attentive as could be and he did a great job accommodating our special requests and introducing us to some new menu items (the snap peas are excellent as is the halibut). Joe was the Maitre de and he made sure our wine needs were met. He made selections that paired well with the food our party was having and he was knowledgeable about the wines - great stories as he served. Chef Wee even dropped in to make sure our food was correct (it was universally exceptional).
I know Morton's gets a bad rap by some foodies - try the Arlington location - it wont disappoint!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMortn's inArlington is probablyMortn's inArlington is probably the most intimate mortons in the country. Nestled in Crystal City with an exceptional staff. They have a great chef as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined at Morton's for EasterWe dined at Morton's for Easter dinner 2013. We typically like to share everything; and without us asking them to do anything special, they independently split everything in half for us: the five onion soup, wedge salad, and bone-in ribeye. The cocktails were good (sazerac and old fashioned), the wine was excellent (numonthia termes), the sides were tasty (mac and chees, twice baked potato and grilled asparagus), and the service was extremely attentive. Parking with the valetwas a breeze and very reasonable. We enjoyed dinner very much.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steak was perfectly preparedThe steak was perfectly prepared and tender. The waiter was the perfect professional and attentive. But we will be glad when the interior renovations are complete - the black plastic sheeting on certain walls is off-putting.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you have not yet gone andIf you have not yet gone and checked out all the changes taking place at the Crystal City Morton's, you should! This great restaurant is just getting better. The impeccable service and food now has a new look and ambience.

Super wait staff and hostess!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went forMy husband and I went for our wedding anniversary and Morton's made it very special. The service was outstanding and the food was simply amazing. Everything we ordered was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I ordered the Cajun Rib Eye and my husband the New York Strip and those steaks were so tender you did not need an knife to cut them. The french onion soup was delicious as well as the ceasar salad and onion rings-even the bread they serve before hand was delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking an amazing experience and delicious food!
Also, they took a complimentary picture of us and gave it to us a momento of the evening which I appreciated! It was a classy and thoughtful gesture.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great service.Great food and great service. I was expecting a higher end experience but found small children and jeans in the early evening crowd. I guess that's the nature of this neighborhood. I'll be back but next time I'll dress down.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were greeted promptly whenWe were greeted promptly when we arrived and were shown to our booth. the service of the wait staff was excellent, and was matched by the quality of the food.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!
