Diner Reviews
  • "I have always loved Morton's and thought it was high-brow, but it seems the clientele is no longer top notch with people coming in with shorts and flip flops. Also, my beloved favorite of over 15 years, the souffle, Landry's has changed that now. I can get an expensive steak anywhere, not sure I need to get it here it any more. Although, the service remains impecable."

  • "Morton's downtown D.C. is busier during the week than on the weekend so we practically had the restaurant to ourselves.The service was excellent!"

  • "The staff was amazing - the best ever and this was our first time. Went to celebrate a birthday for my boyfriend. My lobster was not the best but John's was great. We'll be back!"

  • "The lobster was ok... i never had an entire one before. Apparently there are male and female ones. My boyfriend to was celebrating his birthday , received the mail lobster and I received female Lobster. I was pretty grossed out because when I open mine all this black stuff can we hang out and kinda lost my appetite for it so I really didn't eat much of it. Other than that the service was outstanding and we enjoyed our time there and look forward to going back"

  • "I frequent Morton's in many states, and this by far was one of my worst experiences ever. The onion soup came out luke warm, my burger was supposed to be cooked medium and it came out well done, and the outside tables were missing the glass tops (we were not informed prior to sitting down), which made the table shake during the entire meal. Skip this location if you can."

  • "Great choice for my husband on Father's Day. He really enjoyed himself the service was great, couldn't asked for a better waiter. He food presentation was fantastic, exciting to look as well as eat. Kudos for your restaurant Morton's. Will make a future date soon."

  • "The staff took great care of us. It was our 25th Anniversary. Personalized menus, took a photo of us and printed it. Way beyond what we expected. Our food was great, my filet was cooked how I liked it and my wife enjoyed her stuffed shrimp. The sides of creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes were fantastic. My wedge salad was ginormous. We were stuffed with no room for dessert."

  • "Long time fan of The Palm but received a gift card to Morton's. I've been to a few Morton's so figured I wouldn't feel too bad about breaking ranks. Food was great and service was good...shout out to Chris for the familiar steakhouse server rapport (although slightly pushy on the upsell...). Only real criticism was our reservation was for 2 @ 7:30 on Monday so it was virtually empty which is why I was little disappointed that they sat us at the first booth closest to host table...also still set as a four top. Didn't ask if we had any preferences on where we wanted to sit and no visit from the manager. I don't mean to nitpick but those levels of details from a place trying to brand itself as top restaurants are what separate good from great."

  • "My husband was so surprised when we showed up at Morton's for dinner. He absolutely loves to dine at Morton's. This was our second time there and it was equally as nice as the first time. The restaurant is so elegant and upscale, the service is very on point, they make YOU feel like YOU are their ONLY customer! The service is so personalized, we just love it. We feel so pampered. The food was so good, and my husband's steak was so big and tender, like "butter". We will be returning again this year."

  • "I took a group of visiting colleagues here for dinner and cigars after a long day of conference sessions and meetings. We couldn't have asked for a better evening. The steak was delicious, paired with a nice bold Malbec. And after we finished eating out on the balcony, we were able to enjoy some fine cigars. The conversation flowed easily and I expect some good partnerships will come from it. Thanks for a perfect evening!"

  • "we had a nice meal at 530pm on a sunday preceding a performance at the National Theater. Great classic gin martini. Iceberg wedge was Humongous- 2 of us split one and still couldnt finish it. Augratin twice baked potatoes perfect. the 6 oz filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked - not overdone with salt. Great meal and server attentive to our need to make the show."

  • "This was a wonderful surprise for my husband. He was so surprised when he discovered that he was having dinner here to celebrate his 50th birthday. We really enjoyed the atmosphere here from the time we arrived until the time we departed. The excellent service we received here, from the front door to our beautiful table, to our server. My husband is still talking about what a fabulous time he had. We will be returning again!"

  • "Pretty quiet, nice ambiance, good space between the tables, and the $29 lunch special is a great deal. The steak this time was outstanding, best I have had in a long time. And it is worth coming here just for the key lime pie- it is that good. "

  • "I had been informed that if in DC Morton's is a must. I could not agree more. From the hostess to our server the experience was top notch. The manager came over to check on our experience. The steak and seafood was perfectly prepared. To end the evening a photo was taken for us to have as a rememberance of our visit. I have recommended this restaurant to several I know who will be traveling to DC in the near future"

  • "I took a young woman to the Morton's steakhouse located in downtown DC and it was her first time. She really enjoyed herself and found the ambiance nice, and enjoyed our server "Abdul". He provided great service, and wasn't intrusive to our dinning experience. She really enjoyed her dish which was some sort of shrimp dish. I always enjoy dinning at this location and look forward to coming back. The only thing I dislike about my dish which was the Jumbo crab cakes I find the portions to be less than jumbo. Despite that I always like to dine here when I have the opportunity, and like the staff as a whole on the times I've been a guest. "

  • "I've been Morton's the Steakhouse for twice, once for business and once for family party. The place is great, especially looking in photo. The food is delicious, especially the steak -- it was quite awesome! And the waiter and waitress were nice people too. They took a very nice picture of my family as a souvenir. Thanks for the experience :)"

  • "Our server was friendly and the food was excellent. The only complaint was that our steaks came too soon after the appetizers arrived. One of us had to rush to finish her salad while another of us did not get to finish hers. The timing between the two courses should have been better."

  • "The Cajun Ribeye and steak menu are excellent. If you select other options, the quality may depend on you timing."

  • "My first visit to Morton's (located at Connecticut & K Streets, NW, Wash., DC) in 2 years, was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed my meal as well as the ambiance and staff. I most certaintly will return soon for another delicious meal. Thanks to everyone at Morton's."

  • "This was stop two on my (self-assigned) Morton's tour .. the first was the original Morton's on State Street in Chicago. In this Morton's, I found the steak (ribeye) to be well over the medium-rare I ordered, but tasty nonetheless. The server could have done an immediate check back, but this didn't happen in this case .. still, high-quality meat and well-timed food arrival (I was taking my time). I would definitely return to this Morton's when back in DC."

  • "The fabled Morton's in downtown DC is a waste of money. The bread was not fresh, the salad wilted and the vegetables were cold. Given the staff's attitude, I doubt they care. They can ride on their name. Any fast food restaurant could do a better job across their chain."

  • "The DC location where my parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary went above and beyond what anyone could have expected. They had a special table ready with red hearts on it, had menu's printed with their names and happy anniversary, took their pictures and even had a frame for them. I simply wrote on the reservation line it was my parents 60th anniversary not knowing if the restaurant would even get the note from Open Table? Obviously they did and the GM - Dan - deserves huge credit for his team going the extra mile. Great job by Open Table as well! It's one of the few times where the service totally overshadowed the food but they said that was excellent as well."

  • "This is arguably the BEST restaurant in the DC area. The food, services and gracious hospitality is the BEST I have ever been apart of. Danny, General Manager is the MAN along with his staff. They create a "memorable experience" every time I go there and they never take you for granted. KUDOS out to Mortons on Connecticut street."

  • "The bar area in this Conn. Ave. Mortons is in many ways more comfortable than the main room for lunch. The tables are spread, the room is pretty quiet and if you are cigar inclined you can dine on the covered porch. Bar has comfortable chairs. There are a couple TVs, not overwelming. But the best of this place is the service. Bar staff serves the room and they are on the spot. Lunch menu is finally priced in the moderate level with steak salads and burgers well priced. Delivery is timed for the hour or so lunch timetable. Food is well prepared and fresh. All in all, a good come back from a period of sufficating price and haughty service."

  • "My group of five went to Morton's on a Saturday and the service was fabulous. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and everything was perfect, we could not have asked for more. The staff was very attentive to us, friendly, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed it so much, we are planning another birthday celebration at Morton's. I highly recommend server Chris, he was great!"

  • "Went to Morton's for a special treat lunch and the service was at the consistent excellent level for which Morton's is known. Perhaps it is because the DC restaurant scene has dramatically improved over the past five years, but the food preparation didn't seem up to the same high level as the service. A case in point, the crab stuffed broiled shrimp was good, but the shrimp were a little over cooked and dry. Also, the steak salad was good, but didn't stand out from Bobby Vans and other steak houses. However, one of our group raved about the crab omelet. So still a very solid effort if not quite up to the usual Morton's standard."
