  • Morton's is better than the Palm
    Littlered000013
    Dined on 5/24/2014
    For the price Morton's is better than the Palm. They offer more choices and the ambience is much better. I had been to a different Morton's and wasn't very impressed. That Morton's had closed, so I decided that our group would try this Morton's in Arlington. Ruth Chris, The Palm and Morton's are all basically in the same price range. For me the best choice is Morton's. They have the best offerings for food and desserts. No one in our group drinks, so I can't comment on the bar offerings. The food ordered came as requested. Two people ordered filet mignon, one wanted it well done and the other medium rare. Both were pleased that the filet mignon came out just as they requested. Sometimes what is requested isn't what you receive. Here it was.

    We both had a great time and really enjoyed our meal, the service was top notch our server was very informative and was very attentive with out being a bother. The restaurant was not very crowded so the noise level was not an issue at all my only complaint is that there was a family sitting across from us a husband, wife and a very small child and they were taking pictures which I have no issue with but the fact that they were using flash and it was pointed in my direction meant that I was being blinded by the flash every time it was fired; that was a little annoying. Note: that it didn't last too long but other patrons need to be considered. All in all we had a great meal and will dine in this restaurant again.

    We did enjoy our lunch at your location in Arlington, VA. Food was delicious, cook terms perfect, timing well sync. Drinks were good. Service proper, polite and pleasant. Ambience and lighting elegant and comfortable. I believe that if you are detail oriented and have an educated palate, Morton's is a right choice to go.

    Dined on 5/9/2014
    I took my boyfriend to Morton's for his 20th birthday dinner. We really received the royal treatment. As soon as we entered the restaurant they said happy birthday and called him by his first name. They took a picture of us and framed it. The table was covered in confetti and the menu was personalized to say "Happy 20th birthday, Matt". We had a three course steak and seafood meal that was Devine and everything was cooked to perfection. The hot chocolate cake is a must-try. Plus, they brought out a candle for him to blow out with dessert! All-in-all a great night, delicious food, and wonderful service by Morton's.

    The meal was very overpriced and the quality was not great. I had the crab cakes, they were fine but I've certainly had much better for less money. We shared an order of mashed potatoes and they were not good at all, they were runny and had way too much pepper in them. I would not recommend this to anyone, you can get a much better meal without having to spend way too much money.

    My wife and I were given a table in the very back of the dining room near the restrooms and across from the serving line. In spite of our proximity to the serving line my wife's entree (salmon) was brought to the table cold. The lighting was almost too dark to read the menu. The waiter was overwhelmed and could not get to the table often enough. Over all, it was not a very good experience for such a high priced restaurant. We placed the restaurant in the same category with Ruth Cris' Steakhouse, but there is no comparison! Ruth Cris is head and shoulders above Morton's!

    Morton's Steakhouse is an outstanding restaurant, and good for a very romantic dinner and/or special occasions. The food is quite pricey, but it's a place I relish dining at. I often dine there for business dinners, and it can't be beat. The staff is very attentive, including the management. They always come by to make sure there are no issues that need addressing. What I like most is they remember my name or something about a conversation we may have had.

Meredith was amazing at the bar and my server was fantastic as well. The manager Steven is someone you won't forget - great wine recommendations and personable. I'll be back!

    Hostess was warm and friendly, we went for HH but she never came over to ask if we were ready for a table. No one returned to inquire how the food was OR if we'd like another beer or apps. I had to flag down staff to get a bill. I was so disappointed with the service and it was slow.

    So part of this is that I am a landry's club member (the mortons loyalty club). I'm supposed to get preferred seating -- was placed next to the kitchen. It took a good twenty minutes for our server to show up to take drink order. I'm not a hater, and the food was fine, but part of the deal with a $100 pp dinner is great service. so.... "meh". I don't hate em, and i'll be back. but my loyalty is damaged.

    Dined on 4/8/2014
    Service and ambience outstanding. Broiled Sea Scallops were excellent. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for the rest of the meal. The bone-in filet, while tender, was more bone than filet. The sauteed spinach with button mushrooms should have been named button mushrooms with a little spinach...there were far too many mushrooms and very little spinach. The Bacon Onion Macaroni and Cheese was actually the star of the meal. While it sounds a little too much, the flavors blend well and the dish is quite staisfying. However, one does ot go to Morton's for their sides. Dessert, Raspberry Souffle and Key Lime Pie, were good. I will go to Morton's again; I just will not order the bone-in filet or sauteed spinach with button mushrooms.

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    Caesar salad was just poorly seasoned & the plank croutons tasted like melba toast--literally tasteless. Truffle oil on matchstick potatoes tasted like lighter fluid--and I like truffles & their oil. Stuffed shrimp were over cooked and dry and quite bland on their own. The filet was cooked perfectly and very good, although not filet tender. The bacon wrapped scallops were nicely cooked but just had nothing to offer--the bacon was too rare and not very smoky. The carrot cake was non descript, which I thought unusual for carrot cake--even a bad one is still good! At best the food was edible but in no way at the price point nor standard of quality I think of when I think Morton's.

We left being disappointed and unsatisfied with the whole experience. The initial greeting was great, the atmosphere nice. The food lacked flavor, the waiter lacked attention and the prices were not worth the quality of food we were served.

    If you are a meat and potatoes person, this steakhouse is a great choice for a fine dining experience. The waiter was very professional and provided excellent service. If someone from the staff walked by the table, they did not hesitate to refill your wine glass or ask if you needed anything. Ambiance was great, decor was first class, and lighting in the restaurant was just enough to be romantic and still be able read the menu. Overall, excellent dining experience!

    Went here on a weekday for dinner with my girlfriend. The ambiance is romantic. The food was good, but not superb. It was definitely not the best steak I've had. For the quality and taste, I felt as though it was a bit over-priced. We had the crab cake appetizer, sea bass entrée and filet mignon/scallop/shrimp entrée. The crab cake was very good. The sea bass dish was mediocre, did not like the preparation. It was not in filet form. The other entrée was fairly good, again, overpriced. For better tasting steak, try Ray's or Flemings.
