    If you're in to red meat & huge portions this is the place to go. One of my dining companions ordered a steak medium rare. It appeared to be prepared perfectly. He ate every bite! The menu does list calories for all items which did affect my selections. I had fish with the sauce on the side. The fish was also perfectly prepared, and I ended up eating most of the sauce as well. So much for calorie conservation! Our waiter, who was terrific, asked us to select dessert at the time we ordered our entrees because a number of the desserts take 35 minutes to prepare. The dessert my husband & I both ordered was worth every calorie. It wasn't on the menu so I don't know how many calories it was--I'd guess at least one full day's worth if not two.

    Morton's knows how to make a birthday celebration memorable -- balloons, complimnetary dessert, and even a specially printed menu that makes a great souvenir. The staff was attentive without being intrusive and accommodated our two-year old grandson's food needs so that his mom could really enjoy her birthday. It was a great night!

    Wonderful food (especially the filet). Great atmosphere. Outstanding service. Morton's is not an inexpensive steak house, but you get what you pay for. And there's not many better upscale joints than this landmark. On that special birthday or anniversary, splurge at Morton's. They will make you feel full and fulfilled.

    Our server Pooch was wonderful. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and they gave him a complimentary souffle and it was perfect. The meal overall was very delicious, and I had come to use a gift card I had gotten about a year ago. The main entree itself will not fill you. We finished off the bread they give in the beginning (it was so warm and tasty, we didn't want to waste it!), and ordered the short rib tacos. Very flavorful, but messy (bf really likes tacos). Got the lobster bisque and I didn't like it too much since it was bitter. For main dishes, we got the crab cakes and filet mignon, both of which didn't disappoint. Also ordered onion rings but didn't finish them. Very expensive, so it will probably be a while until we return

    We celebrated our anniversary at Morton's. We were given special menus with Anniversary and the date printed at the top. The filets, lobster, sweet corn, potatoes, and dessert were all delicious. It was a wonderful, relaxed dining experience, and we have a nice photograph taken by Morton's to help us remember it. Our server, Joe, deserves a special shout-out for great service!

    I love Morton's. I have never had finer beef anywhere. On this particular occasion, the lighting was so dim it was difficult to read the menu and our server was terrific until she left the check and didn't return to collect it. We eventually flagged down another server to take our payment. I prefer the decor of the Georgetown Morton's to that of the Bethesda location, but he food is always 5 star.

    Morton's pays a lot of attention to detail. You make a reservation there and they call to find out if there's a special occasion. If there is one, they personalize the menus for you. I've been going there for my birthday for several years. They also take a photo of your group and make a little card with the photo for you to take home. There's nothing that needs to be said about the food. It's always good. Last time we had the mushroom, which was spectacular!!

    I dined here alone on my birthday (since hubby had to go out of town on business), and was treated like royalty! After seating me, the hostess offered me a complimentary cocktail, and my excellent waitress, Mary, was warm and friendly, and offered me a complimentary dessert (my choice: key lime pie) When it was delivered with a traditional candle, another member of the staff took my photo and presented me it to me along with a souvenir menu. Wedge salad, crabcakes and pie were deliciously indulgent. Thank you, Morton's!

    We've dined at various Morton's & always had fabulous service. Maybe our waiter was having an off day, but the restaurant was not busy - 5:30PM, except at the bar, which was noisier than I recall at any Mortons, and the noise carried into the entire dining room. The waiter was friendly & attentive but forgot to order Lyonnaise Potatoes, and when asked, told us it would take 10-12 minutes, by which time we'd have been done eating. He also replaced a glass of house wine that I didn like, with a wine I enjoyed, but he told us it was only $2-3 more, and it was $7 more! For $18 I could have bought a bottle & drank it at home! It was my birthday & I would still go to Mortons for a special occasion, but probably not this location.

    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.
