    The staff was very accommodating and efficient. I cannot say enough from the bar staff to maitre d' to serving staff. The service was excellent. We were celebrating a birthday and the menu was personalized to the birthday girl. My steak was a little over done for my liking and it was immediately replaced with a new one prepared to perfection. Birthday girl also enjoyed the complementary dessert!

    I had not visited Morton's for many years. It was a combination of a poor economy and dislike of downtown that has kept me away. I'm not wealthy. I actually work for a living. I value the dollar and look for quality in every aspect of an experience. I can happily state that our entire Morton's experience was perfect for our first wedding anniversary. Many "upscale" restaurants actually pester you in an attempt to impress you with their service. The Morton's staff maintained the absolute perfect level of service without intruding upon our special occasion. This is very difficult to accomplish because every person and even their occasions are different. The food was perfect, as I anticipated. We will be back...but without a fifteen year wait!

    Morton's service, food and location in Cincinnati is really good but it's just not up to par with Ruth's Chris. It's missing the sizzle. The service was excellent...don't get me wrong, but for the price...there are just not as distinct as Ruth's.

    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.

Normally my husband and I do the same old, same old (something Ruby like) for special occasions, guests from out of town, etc. We had never considered Morton's, now we know what we were missing. We dined late, well after any dinner crowd and had wonderful food and service. We are both looking forward to returning.

    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.

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.
