  • Good, But Not Great

    We have been hearing about Morton's for years. During our vacation to DC we decided to check them out. It was good, but not great. We got off to a disappointing start. Morton's posted on their door and website that they opened at 5 p.m. We got there at 5, but had to cool our heels in the lobby for one-half hour because they do not start seating until 5:30 p.m. Bad! The menu is varied and supplemented with specials. The food was well prepared and very good. Service was great. In our opinion, the value proposition for the meal was not good. It was too expensive for what was provided in the overall dining experience.

    From start to finish the worst dining experience ever. Table had a lot of crumbs on the chairs, napkins and debris around the table. Service was poor, and the food was even worse. Steak was of low quality. Sides were overcooked and flavorless. Management was completely unconcerned when I notified him. This is a place that takes absolutely no pride in their food and service, which is unacceptable given the premium that they charge for honor of eating there. Save your money! You will have a better meal at Outback Steakhouse then this joint!

    I had a less than stellar last visit to this Morton's BUT the location has proven that they are not just in the foodservice industry but the experience business. My visit was to grab a quick bite and a bottle of wine from my locker but it turned into a visit with fellow "lifers" and a suit cleaning. Earlier, in the day I had the HONOUR of lunch with my daughter who had a PBJ. The peanut butter was transferred to my jacket. Lloyd (GM) took it upon himself to point this out to me (a noted perfectionist in clothing) but also to get it cleaned while I ate. As always, Travis (server/bartender) completes any visit but this time maybe Steve's departure is not the end of the world as I know it in Crystal City.

    The food and service was very average but the prices are very high. The number of managers that ask how you like your meal was excessive. My suggestion is that they need more waiters and fewer managers. The atmosphere was ok but it lacked any charm. Given all the great independent restaurants close by in Alexandria you can do better. Or if you really want a steak house, try Bobby Vanns in DC just over the bridge.

    In 30 years of loving Morton's, I'm very disappointed with this last experience. Other than ambience, all other categories (food, service, and attention to details) was extremely poor. I would not recommend Morton's until they focus on getting their act together.

If that is unsatisfactory, I will contact Landry's. Thanks for your follow up on the dining experiences.

    Last Friday was the semi-annual Lobster Sale with a 2lber going for 34.99. We expected service to be slow but after the craziness of Restaurant Week and Filet Mignon Day the staff is now expert at handling these crowds and our group of ten had a remarkable experience - including six lobsters that were on the high side of 2lbs. Of course those in our party that only eat meat were not disappointed as the Chef is an artist when it comes to steaks & chops. If you have not had the lamb chops butterflied and cajuned you are missing a treat. Not one person at our table was disappointed and our server Travis was on top of every detail. The manager stopped by numerous times to make sure we were happy; not easy given the number of diners there.

    We had the 2 lb lobster and peppercorn strip steak recommended by our waiter and shared each. It was awesome. We had twice baked au gratin potatoes which were good but the best side was the spinach and button mushrooms. That side was delicious. We went to Morton's to compare to Ruth's Chris which is our favorite, but we will have to go back to Morton's and get a filet mignon to compare. In all other respects, the two are tied!

    Morton's serves up the best steaks. Period. It is worth every penny. We also indulged in the incredibly amazing Shrimp Alexander, the creamed spinach, and souffle. Everything was perfect, down to the Maitre D greeting us, personalized birthday menus, complimentary dessert of our choice, and food. The only nitpick is a double oops for an "upgrade" butter we ordered. We asked for the foie gras/cognac butter, and twice received the wrong item (and all three were underwhelming). That being said, we will absolutely continue to dine at Morton's around the world.

    This was once one of my favourite locations in Metro DC but with Stephen the manager departing it has fallen out of favor. Chef is still an outstanding master in the kitchen but aside from that everything has dropped. The bartender did not have a clue on how to make a Kentucky Slam or a rocky Basel. She was unable to be creative and make suggestions. It was the first time I left and got home on time.

    Cocktails menu is bad, high prices for terrible choices. Wanted a Prime Rib French Dip sandwich which the waiter said they did have and never have had, even though I had one in there before for lunch. He still insisted they have never had prime rib sandwiches, so I ordered something else. Pulled up the Morton's lunch menu online and sure enough the sandwich I wanted was on there, so much for them "never offering it". The waiter tried, but the entire evening felt like we were speaking two completely different language. I have no reason to go back.

    There are many places in the DC-area where you can get a good steak, but the Morton's in Arlington is our go-to place every time. The food is consistently amazing and the service is top-notch. The staff makes everyone feel like a VIP--whether you are there for happy hour or for a big celebratory evening out. Speaking of happy hour, do yourself a favor and check it out. The food is great and the friendly bartenders definitely know their cocktails.

    Went to Morton's Arlington for restaurant week. Went early (5:30 pm) to take advantage of happy hour. Had to sit in bar area in tall chairs to take advantage of drink specials, $7 glass of good wine. Noise level was high. Servers tended to pay more attention to the regulars. Had to request bread. Slow to refill water glasses. Salad, filet mignon and dessert very good. Side of creamed spinach pricy ($13), and not to my liking with nutmeg.

    I expected more of a special menu with unique creations for Restaurant Week. I was disappointed. It seemed like the restaurant provided low quality/low graded food items for it's menu selections. This is the time to shine and show off the creativity of the chef. I did not see that all with the menu choices. I have eaten at this restaurant and other Morton's across the country, so I expected to be able to showcase its phenomenal offerings to my visiting sister prior to her deployment. I thought Restaurant week was a perfect opportunity. Truly disappointed.

    My wife and I dined at Morton's during DC Restaurant Week. It has been 40 years since I've eaten at a Morton's because I'm really not a steak person. This Morton's is in an easily accessible area and parking is very convenient. Our filet mignon was the best we've tried but the accompanying salad and vegetables were quite ordinary. The small desserts were very good. This cut-down version of a Morton's dinner was probably not the best way to judge the restaurant. I'm sure other meals would have made a greater impression. I'm glad I tried Morton's again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to dinners who enjoy steak but I doubt we will come again.

    When I called to ask what was on the restaurant week menu (because it was not posted on their website) I was read their special Summer Finale 3-course menu which was not the same as the menu we were handed. The meat was not as perfectly seared as I have had before, my mashed potatoes were cold (they replaced these when asked), and the key lime pie was "ok". I just felt maybe their heart wasn't into this restaurant week meal.
