    Morton's was defintely one of the best high-end reaturants we've ever been to. I would certainly suggest it for special occasions only because it is no doubt pricey. If I was "looking'' for something to complain about, we were not a big fan of partner waitering. We had two people waiting on our table, and I think it tends to be less personal and more confusing. On a couple occassions, we had to relay the same information to both of them. But regardless, they were both very nice and did a good job.

    Everything was fine except for the fact I had to ask for a saucer, I'm assuming they took one too many away. Not a big deal, but the waiter had no idea what a saucer was!?!?! After I advised it was a small plate, he returned rather quickly with one that was dirty...I'm guessing he took it off the table behind me. I immediately requested another one, he apologized and everything else went smoothly. The food was delicious and I highly recommend dining there.

    Went to Morton's for restaurant week, $35/person. We were pleasantly surprised with our dinners. I ordered the salmon. It was delicious and came with a very tasty vegetable relish. My husband had the pork chop and loved it. The portions were huge and the service was outstanding. We had planned on ordering the filet but changed our minds the last minute. Ceasar salad was excellent and the horseradish mashed potatoes were wonderful. We will return to Morton's but not for their steaks. Other choices on the menu are worth trying.

    Went here for restaurant week. Service was good, and food came quickly. Ambiance was nice. It was loud, but not too loud. Spinach salad with bacon dressing was okay, and my chicken was delicious, but my boyfriends porkchop was overcooked and dry. He doesn't like to complain so he didn't send it back. The key lime pie at the end was nothing special.

    Big disappointment was two of our three steaks were not prepared correctly (cooked medium well vs. requested medium and medium rare). We elected to eat them due to time constraints. In fairness to management, we brought this to their attention and requested no adjustment to our bill but they did comp our desserts anyway which was a satisfactory response in my opinion. Maybe I am too tough, but this is a high end steak house; the prep of steaks should be flawless for the cost of dining at an establishment of this caliber. Our server Tom was exceptional.

    Service was below average. Not an equal level of service to the amount of my bill. Food was amazing. If you have 45 mins to burn in between times you see your server, eat here because it's great food. Otherwise, go across the street. The server will care and the food is comparable quality while reasonably priced.

    We were celebrating our son's 50th Birthday and his wife's ..th birthday. Three of us had the spring special, two with each Filet Mignon done perfectly at rare plus. One had grilled salmon which was one of the best she ever had. Our son had the fall special; he was delighted with his Filet medium rare and the huge grilled shrimp. Two had Caesar salads and I compliment the chef who prepared the dressing the classical way with the anchovies tasted but not seen. My tomato with mozzarella, basil, and balsamic was a "home run." Spinach salad sans onion would have delighted Popeye himself. Service by Jon was perfect; he is a true pro, is there when you need him, replaces silverware which in other restaurants is a disappearing art. Not here.

    First visit to the Cincinnati Morton's, picked the summer $40 for three courses special. Service was great, staff was attentive, restaurant ambiance pleasing, clean and noise level appropriate. The food however was not what I expect from Morton's. The Morton's salad was very bland with the blue cheese dressing having little flavor. The 6 oz filet tasted heavily of tenderizer and the mashed potatoes had a consistency like they came from a box. On the plus side, the green beans were very tasty and the individual soufflé (lemon) was terrific. On balance I was disappointed, the salad, steak and potatoes were what I'd expect from an Applebees, not Morton's. Nothing was awful, just not good.

    Drinks Appetizers and Desserts were 5 star. Salads, Shrimp Cocktail, Choc Mousse and Creme Brulee were superb. Steaks were not Morton's quality. I eat at the Great Neck Morton's all the time. My filet mignon had gristle and fat (??) my friend's Porterhouse was tough, except for the filet part, and my other friend's Ribeye was tasty, but tough.

    We went for an early dinner for our anniversary. Since it was not crowded we were surprised that the whole process took so long. The food was great, the décor was striking, and our server was very friendly and attentive. We liked being able to see fountain square from our table. They took a picture of us and enclosed it in a signed card by the staff to acknowledge our anniversary....nice touch!

It was my friends birthday, and the staff was on top of that, however the "on the house desert" souffle kinda sucked.

    It was my friends first time at a Morton's and it was very nice, but we made reservations at 8 pm and didn't get seated for 20 minutes even though the hostess said they simply needed to clean a table. We had a poor server. She barely had a voice so it was hard to hear her. My friend couldn't hear her at all. I had to pay very close attention to her mouth and read her lips most of the time. When I asked for the anniversary menus, which ultimately happened to be literally behind where we were seated, it took over 10 minutes for her to get them. She forgot until she came back to our table and realized it. I also ordered a Coca Cola when we sat down and didn't get it until much later, when I asked for it again.

    We went there for our 15th wedding anniversary. Our waiter asked when greeting us if we were celebrating anything special. After telling her the reason we were there we received two paper menu's to take home with "Happy 15th anniversary" written on the top. They also took our picture and printed it and placed in a small frame which the staff had signed. Last they made us a souffle on the house. The food was excellent with the exception of the Lobster Bisque being ok and bland. My husband had the porter house steak which was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I had the stuffed jumbo shrimp which was also very good. Overall I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion, but it is very pricy so I would not eat there often

    Great Place for Steaks !!! Other Stuff, ... Not so Much. Shoestring Parmesan Fries - Outstanding!!! Service on a full Friday night, ... don't have plans for anything else. They try hard but seem understaffed. NEW YORK PRICES, too. We arrived at 8, were released at 10:20. And we only had a drink, salads, mains, no coffee, and three desserts, (the seasonal 'crisp' did use FRESH peaches but lacked 'crisp' wasn't crisp and dint come together) the cheesecake, order, but ... what took so long? If you stick with steak, get lucky for service, end with that cheesecake, and are insulated to the check, this can be an AWESOME place. It was a good night but bein' honest wid-ja, be advised, I've had better nights at this and other Morton's.

    Our server, Kelly, was great - had a wonderful time with her! The lobster, which was a special that night, was very disappointing........very tough, and zero flavor. Didn't send it back because I didn't want to inconvenience anyone else at the table or wait another 20 minutes for my dinner. The crab appetizer was a bit on the skimpy side this time........also a little disappointing.
