    Great place to go and enjoy evening with friends. Had one issue and they were on it. Manager came to table several times to check on us. It was my wife birthday and made her special with free dessert and photo of the table.

    We celebrated our 20th year anniversary with a dinner at Morton's. John was our waiter and he was fabulous. The manager visited our table to make sure everything was ok. We received a picture and a souvenir menu with our names on it, plus a free lemon souffle as an anniversary gift. Most important, the food was delicious!!! Thank you to Morton's staff for making our anniversary dinner very special. We could not have been happier with the experience.

    As always, the food served is some of the finest available, anywhere. One person in our party did have to send his steak back to be cooked properly. I do feel the prices are becoming exorbitant. $100 per person is a bit much when comparable cuisine can be had at half that price.

    Morton's - my favorite steakhouse!!! The food - we ordered the bone-in ribeye and Alaska king crab legs - was great and the portions are huge. The service was outstanding at every phase of the experience: from the valet parkers to the check-in host to our very friendly and attentive server. The ambiance is great - quiet and just dark enough to be romantically cozy and comfortable. My significant other and I were celebrating our birthdays; and the personalized menus were an unexpected and pleasant surprize - a very nice touch.

    This was our 2nd visit to Morton's and just like the first they did not disappoint. I like my steak medium well, and some restaurants cannot get that right, but Morton's gives me a perfect steak every time. The waiter was friendly and extremely attentive.

    My wife and I went to Morton's with a couple of friends. Everything was delicious, especially the filet mignon. One of the best steaks I have ever had. The service was okay but a little slow at times. Nothing bad - they just could have been a little more prompt at times on the service. We were in no hurry and may be the server sensed that and was letting us be - not sure. But everything else was incredible - we love Morton's and will be back!

    We had dinner to celebrate my son's 12th birthday. We show up and they hand specially printed menu's with "Happy Birthday" on them. They really went out of their way to make his birthday dinner special. The food and service were wonderful. My son loves steak and said "it was like eating happiness". Great job!

    My boyfriend and I went for our 3 year anniversary. Our table was nice, food was okay not memorable except for the dessert which we were told was complimentary for our anniversary but we were charged for it on our bill and we didn't even ask for it. I felt deflated at the end. I probable will not go there again!

    Morton's was good but not worth the very expensive prices. I felt guilty spending what I did for food and beverages for myself, my husband and my daughter (~$350). This included one appetizer, three entrees, two side, one dessert, one bottle of wine ($56) a splash of not high end Scotch.

    Morton's was definitely not the same since being purchased by Landrys. The food was only ok. The sure gratin potatoes came out cold and when we had almost finished our entrees. The waiter was neatly non existent and the place was only maybe 1/3 full. Sad that it has Gone downhill.

    My wife and I make at least one trip to Morton's every year, for a special occasion. There are many good restaurants (including steakhouses) in Cincinnati; we've tried most of them. We always come back to Morton's because we have a terrific meal, precisely prepared, in a dining room that allows for comfortable conversation. We look forward to our next visit.

    I can't believe we had never been to Morton's when we have been to all the other steak houses to choose from in Cincinnati. It was outstanding - top on our list now for a great steak! We had a fabulous dinner not only because the food was absolutely delicious, the steaks were cooked perfectly, but the service was impeccable. We were greeted immediately and friendly staff to show us to our table. Our waitress Valerie was the best - knew the menu extremely well and had suggestions without being pushy. It made for a wonderful dinner experience. Service in our opinion will make or break a good night and you would not be disappointed at Morton's.

The menus had "Happy Birthday Joan!" written across the top. A really personal touch. Take your wallet but it's worth it.

    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 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.
