    We arrived by Limo to Morton's for a birthday celebration. From the moment we walked in everyone was very attentive. Our waitress went over items on the menu, suggested some and gave us each a copy of the menu rolled with a ribbon to take with us. The manager stopped by the table and they took a complimentary Birthday photo of our table. It was perfect. The Chocolate lava cake for dessert was decadent!

    My husband and I have gone to Morton's every year for our anniversary for many years. The staff treats us very well and everyone says "Happy Anniversary"; you receive a personalized menu and a photo of your experience to take home. If you order dessert you get a candle in it and the staff attempts to sing. They won't quit their day jobs to become professional singers, though! If you haven't tried Morton's yet, you should.

    As our son headed off to college, we wanted to celebrate the occasion with a special dinner out at the restaurant of his choice. The menu is extensive, featuring varied options which offer something for every palate and always generous, delicious & beautifully presented. Aside from easy parking, we particularly enjoy the staff - from the greeting when you arrive, to Todd (General Manager) interacting with patrons, to Antonio (server) who warmly remembered us and was so attentive, to the personalized menu and souvenir framed photo given as a keepsake of the evening. We are so pleased to have Morton's in our community. Thanks to the entire staff at Morton's yet another memorable meal; we look forward to returning soon on a future occasion!

    We decided to go to Morton's in Bethesda on Friday night. It was not crowded. We were greeted by the waiter using our last name which is a nice touch. I ordered a shrimp cocktail and it was expensive, but good. One of the other people got lobster bisque and it was flat and tasteless. Two in our party got steaks and they were cooked correctly and a good piece of meat. However, they were tasteless. I got the Chicken Christopher and the sauce was flat. We sent back the Lyonnaise potatoes as cold and over cooked. I enjoy dining, but the service for a non busy night was super poor. We used to go to Morton's on a regular basis and stopped going because the quality went down and the price went up. No longer the place to take and impress clients.

    We've been to this Morton's location several times over the years. Longish drive from home, but good central spot for us and family. The steaks and sides are as good as they were 7 years ago when we hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner here. Wish they still had Prime Rib, but otherwise the offerings are worth of the Morton's name.

    Much improved since Landry's got the message that messing with the menu and quality was not going to work if they wanted to continue to draw those patrons who were loyal to the Morton's brand. We have noticed a gradual improvement to the consistency and higher quality product we enjoy. Hope they keep it up. Service as always, is great.

    Waited 15mins for waiter to greet us after we set down, at least 15mins for special menu, attitude not that good, at last forgot my coffee after desert was serve..long enough the dessert was last bite. I have been dine with Morton many times, this is worst. Usually Morton's services were good, and meet expectation, unfortunately not this time.

    overall the food was very good. waiter dropped about 6 glasses on the floor and got water all over the place including my clothes and bag. manager saw this incident but turned around and ignored the situation. Love Mortons but will not go back to the one in Bethesda because of poor service. This was a special occasion but I have received better service at TGIF.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 7/20/2014
    We went the Morton's to celebrate a special occasion. Our party enjoyed the steaks and the decor, but felt that it was way overpriced considering the whole dinning experience. The service was acceptable, but honestly, not comparable with other upscale restaurants we have enjoyed and except for the steak knife, the tableware was surprisingly cheap-looking for this type of restaurant. May be this explains why the restaurant was nearly empty on a weeknight. We might try Morton's next time we are in Chicago, but sorry, we will not come back to this one.

    Service started out great but our special occasion soufflé went flat and so was the rest of the service. Oh, and the souffle as not delivered. We had to inquire on its status and after checking on it for quite awhile asked for the check and left. A shame - good appetizer and dinner and sides but forgot about us on the dessert. By the way - do not take our drinks away without asking.

    Morton's is sometimes overlooked, but it has the best steaks in town. I have been going there for forty years, ever since I discovered it in Chicago, and contrary to the tendency of good restaurants to rest on their laurels, Morton's has just gotten better through the years.

    From Steve the bartender, to Boxton the server and Wes the wine guy...the service was outstanding! And the food was even better. It was the first time in a very long time that we went to a restaurant and everything was amazing. At $355 for 2 (including 2 drinks at the bar before hand, a bottle of wine at dinner and tip) it's not the kind of place we can afford to go often, but we will be back a couple times of year on special occasions. Highly recommended you save up and enjoy the experience at least once!

    Although the ambience was romantic and service was good, we were underwhelmed by the food. We were expecting a much tastier dining experience and was disappointed. The filet mignon was tender but bland and the side dishes (creamed spinach and lyonnaise potatoes) were just ok. We even threw out the leftover portions we had taken home.
