Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "As a business traveler, not local to Washington D.C., I find that the Morton's Restaurants are always a great bet for business atmosphere, quality menu and excellent service. Booking a reservation was very easy through their website. For some reason, it was quite busy the night we were there, so the courses did not arrive with the same fluidity as I have seen in the past. However, the staff was excellent and professional, the table was great and the steaks were perfect as usual. The lounge was a great place for us to meet up prior to the meal."

  • "FROM the warm greeting st the door, our engaging wait staff that provided extra touches for the birthday eith customized and personsluzed menu, birthday wishes, photo, and of course the food. Melt in your mouth steak. Done just right, veggies cooked to perfection and dessert with a candle."

  • "What can you say about Morton's that has not been said before? Well, this is a steak house that makes a vegetarian feel welcome. Picked to please the carnivore in the family, but I was pleasantly surprised that they had dishes I could eat as well."

  • "It was the last day for the CPAC so we decided to eat out and selected Morton's on Connecticut Avenue. The taxi to and from the Gaylord at the National Harbor was worth the expense. Morton's is always consistent in there menu and really know how to please. The Chefs truly known the difference between medium rare and rare and cringe at well done.The waiter was a true professional and knew the menu inside out and backwards. The wine list is endless."

  • "Our reservation was honored, and we were seated in a pleasant booth on arrival. Décor is understated but lovely. Food was excellent--Bibb lettuce salad perfectly fresh and nicely balanced, shrimp cocktail presented in an exotic cloud of dry ice smoke. Steaks were cooked as ordered and superb. Of note, filets are available in 6, 8 or 12 oz. portions to suit any appetite. My only quibble was the timing of the service, which seemed a bit askew; bread (addictive) and water arrived immediately, but it took a while to get the menus and a while longer to place the drink orders, and the wait for the check seemed a bit too long... Overall a good experience; would return."

  • "Excellent service. Great steaks and sides. Very nice happy hour specials. A fantastic covered and heated cigar patio. One of the few places in the area where cigar smoking is allowed and the only Morton's that does."

  • "for a high end steak house and the cost is was a bad experience - the initial waiter was very agressive, pushing very hard and very quickly like he was in an extreme hurry the sea food appetizer and assuming we all wanted the table version, this lasted all the way to desert, pushing very hard and quickly.........clearly Mortons trains their staff to behave in this manner - 3 out of 4 steaks were not cooked properly and sent back and the ones sent back were over cooked..........went to Ruth Chris down the street and it was wonderful, Mortons management clearly wants an aggressive fast paced customer and atmosphere-it used to be a good place to dine with clients this was not- go elsewhere"

  • "Morton's has always been a favorite of mine. So was excited to have my b-day dinner there. Nice ambiance; not too crowded, which was good because we had plans afterward. We were seated quickly, however things kind of went a bit down hill from there. Server was pleasant, but seemed a little distracted. Water took a bit - which the server himself commented. Meals also took longer than we would have expected. Food was pretty good; however, I ordered a chopped salad which came out with limp lettuce and what seemed like a smear of dressing...presentation left a lot to be desired. Also our sides didn't come out until we mentioned to the server that they were missing. Overall, not the worst evening, but I expected more from Mortons."

  • "My wife and I enjoy this restaurant two or three times a year and the quality of food and service is always first class. This time, we took advantage of Morton's special $60 full-meal special. It's quite a deal."

  • "My husband and I have been dining at Morton's for Valentine's Day for over 5 years and we love it. The food is wonderful - our favorite is the lump crab appetizer and of course their steaks are the best :) I also love the chocolate mouse cake. We always get the best service every time we go. We have never been disappointed."

  • "My girlfriend and I travelled to DC for Valentines weekend and choose Morton's for dinner. Our server (Chris) was very nice and left us aline checked on us when needed. I got a 16oz ribeye steak which was very cooked and juicy. The bread was piping hot just from the oven which was exceptional also. My girlfriend got a salad that was also very good. Will be going back to Morton's for another meal sometime."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I were visiting DC for our 5 year ann. and Valentines Day. We arrived for an early dinner at our reservation time, my husband asked to be seated at a nice quiet, romantic table. Tyler proceeded to seat us in the line of all the dining room traffic, near a pole, in front of the kitchen. We sat that through our appetizers fuming at the nice, cozy, empty booths around us. My husband finally blew his top when we were offered a valentines picture and complained about our seating. Joe proceeded to move us to a much more ideal table and continued to be attentive to our needs. Throughout all of this, our waiter, Michael, was excellent. The food was good and typical of any Morton's. Overall, we left happy thanks to Joe and Michael."

  • "At first, the food runners brought us out the wrong food, which happened to belong to the couple next to us. When our food was brought to us 5 minutes later, my "medium rare" filet was nothing short of "well done". If you're going to tout yourself as one of the best steakhouses in the DC area (priced accordingly), more validations need to be put in place to ensure prompt and correct delivery of food. I won't be returning, at least not to the one downtown."

  • "Morton's has a great ambiance, and our server was very attentive even though he was busy. The steak is great, but the sides and salads are not particularly notable. Great if you want to get dressed up and have a great steak. If you are looking for creative food, go elsewhere."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Our server (Daniella perhaps?) rushed us throughout the evening. She lied to us and told us there was not a prix fixe menu, but we heard her telling a neighboring table about it. It took 20 mins to get our wine. She didn't tell us about the dessert soufflés and how they require 45 mins to prepare until after our meal, and only after we specifically inquired. Soups were not hot, my steak was over cooked (though they did replace it) and the terrible service almost completely ruined our Valentine's Day meal. I'll never return."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We haven't really had a good service experience with Morton's in Connecticut Ave, so we tend to go to the one in Georgetown. But Georgetown Morton's was booked on Valentines Day so we settled for the one in Connecticut. As it turns out -- it's the worst service we've ever had. We didn't get a service for over 20, that's after flagging down the manager, our food was late and we never really got the service. We saw our waiter once, that's to take our order, never see him again. We flag the manager to pay our bills. Never again once or twice of bad service is fine, but this is the final straw. Say NO to Morton."

  • "Good steak and friendly service. They sat us next to a party room, and at least 8 people from the party were congregating outside their private room, hovering around our table and holding conversations with each other (three feet from us) for almost an hour. It was extremely annoying, since much of the restaurant was empty. One of the managers said he was going to encourage them to move into the room soon and close the door. That took another 20 minutes to accomplish. The next time I want Morton's, I'll try a different one."

She was very attentive and engaged us in conversation. She is an asset to Morton's Restaurant. The maître d' was also very attentive and made sure we were enjoying ourselves."

It was a part of restaurant week and should had been $35.14 for the meal but was $55.14 for the meal. We stayed and they gave us an additional appetizer for not disclosing the price difference on their website."

  • "From the moment we entered the restaurant the service was amazing. Cost check, friendly greeter and immediate seating. Our waiters were well informed of the specials and menu items. Made delicious recommendations for drinks, appetizers and entrees as we went for the restaurant week menu and strayed due to the delicious menu items. Best steak I have ever had! We'll seasoned and cooked perfectly throughout. Definitely making a return trip. Way better than Ruth Chris!"

  • "I really cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Morton's. They accommodated our party very well and were even awesome toward our kids. We enjoyed the food and will be back soon for more. It's true what they say...you get what you pay for and I don't regret paying what we paid at all. So worth it!"

  • "I have eaten at Morton's before but at the Bethesda location. My thought would be that they are all the same, but that is not the case. My hi and and I thoroughly enjoyed the DC location much more. We were there for our anniversary and told he maitre d' this. He was so nice asking us how many years and if there were kids. Amazingly he even wished us a Happy Anniversary on our way out too! The staff was marvelous and much more attentive than we experienced at the Bethesda location. We live in Germantown, but I would drive further down the road to go to the DC location."

  • "We went for Restaurant Week 2014. Lunch for $20 was a good deal. The salad was so-so (iceberg lettuce with anchovies and a rather bland blue cheese) but the crab cake and chocolate mousse dessert was very good. My wife's hamburgher was so-so but her onion soup was very good. The real problem we had was so service. The staff was very friendly, but are reservations were for 12:45, and it was after 2 that we were finally served our main course. Many of our party had to leave and go back to work before dessert arrived. So the food was worth the price, but the wait was rather long."
