    Outstanding food as usual, combined with top notch service. While I'm not a fan of Morton's closed-in motif in general, we had a very enjoyable meal as you would expect at that price range.

    We went on a weeknight for our anniversary, and must say that we were treated so special. We were greeted right away at the door and sat at a large table with romantic dinner lighting. Our server was fantastic and very attentive, our food was delicious and the steaks were cooked just right. What I loved the most was the menus had "Happy Anniversary" written on them, which just made our night feel even more special. Thank you Morton's for making it a night to remember.

    We went to Morton's to celebrate a special occasion and it was perfect. The short rib was fork tender and delicious and the filet was perfectly cooked and had excellent flavor. Great wine selection. The only problem we had was not enough room for dessert!

  • Pricy for Ordinary
    TTLBLVIP
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    Dinner was ordinary. Nothing special about the preparation of the salmon or crab cakes. The salads were not memorable and the desert was good, not special (the best part was the Hagen Daz icecream on top). Each glass of wine was $15. That is the retail price if the entire bottle of the wine that we ordered. We were very disappointed. We expected to spend a lot for dinner. Morton's is reputed to be expensive, but we expected outstanding food and truly it was not. The service was attentive and efficient, but excellent food is what keeps people coming back. Morton's needs a lot of attention in the kitchen. Can't imagine why people would pay those prices for food that is simple and mediocre.

  • Not what I expected
    Tapper5678VIP
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    Morton's reputation for being a top of the line restaurant did not meet my expectations. Upon entering, the restaurant had from what I could see just one party seated and yet I was told to take my party to the bar and we would be called when seeting was available. This was completely unacceptable to me because I did have a reservation and although I was 10 minutes early did not expect to be treated in such a manner. Waiter was OK, smiling when we could find him, and the food just OK. This was my second visit in Fort Lauderdale, but don't think I would ever return, when Capital Grille seems to really have their act together. Kind of reminds me of what happened to Jackson's. Too bad, but they have to get their act together.

    From the moment we entered Morton's in Fort Lauderdale to the moment we left every staff member we came in contact with was welcoming, outgoing and attentive with good personalities and a sense of humor. Food was fabulous, steaks cooked perfectly. We did not care for one of the side dishes, it was taken away, a different one served and the charges for BOTH were taken off the bill; absolutely did not expect this. Olga, the manager, came by several times to check on how everything was and was genuinely interested, not just a "pass by" .

    I visited Morton's in ft. Lauderdale for the first time, January 1, 2014. Honestly, I have no complaints. The food was great; the service was awesome; and the ambiance was relaxing and settle. I also, love the fact that they personalize the menus for whatever occasion. It's a great place to attend if you want to create an everlasting memory, share a moment, and make a great impression. 5 star restaurant in my perspective.

    I should have known immediately that Morton's would not live up to its reputation for stellar service. Our party of six had a reservation for 9:30 p.m. We arrived a few minutes early and were informed that we would have to wait 40 minutes for our table. In other words, we should not have even bothered to make a reservation since our wait would have been the same without it. The rest of the evening was marked by incredibly slow service. Long waits for menus, water, and meals. Despite enjoying the food, we were very disappointed by our experience at Morton's. Next time, we'll stick with the family favorite, Capital Grille.

    The service at this Morton's is exceptional. We enjoyed a very delicious and leisurely Christmas Eve dinner. I actually had Alaskan king crab instead of steak and I was not disappointed. I also enjoyed the beet salad, my husband had the french onion soup and a rib-eye. The only menu item we did not care for was the jumbo asparagus with balsamic glaze.

    I decided to try Morton's because a coworker gave me a $50 gift card for christmas. When I arrived, they had complimentary valet parking which was nice. The mitre 'd seated us as soon as we checked in and we began looking at the various menus for cocktails, wine, etc. People were seated around me in denims/hoodies/sneakers while Morton's claims to have business attire dress code on website. Our waiter was very professional through out the whole process and service was definitely 5 stars. I ordered the Chicago Style Prime Bone-In Ribeye M at $55 - Was not impressed with the quality of the meat. While the flavor was good, the tenderness was lacking for that type of cut IMO. Ambience was very dark. VERY expensive - about $100+ per person.

    Very extensive wine list. The Oysters Rockefeller were very tasty and succulent. The Filet Mignon was very tender, great tasting, and melted in your mouth. Out of (2) vegetables, the grilled asparagus in balsamic were excellent but found the sweet potatoes had a little too much brown sugar. We did not have time for dessert but looking forward to returning the next special occasion. If you are looking for a romantic dinner, request one of the round booths - it is well worth it. Lastly, the service was outstanding.

    Both the waitress and the manager were great. Very attentive without being overbearing. The food however for the prices wasn't anything special. With so many other steak houses out there, your expectations become higher. I didn't dislike the meal except for the French onion soup; they use a tomato base in it, which for me just doesn't work. But for a nice night out, it would be a good place to go.

    This was our first time at Morton's and it was a terrific experience! The food was outstanding and our server, John, offered impeccable service. In fact, we all agreed, possibly the best service we have ever had. He accommodated our every need and then some. My only disappointment was the ambience or lack of. The decor of this restaurant is very disappointing. I don't mind understated decor but this was so ordinary for a restaurant of this caliber. Also, they should make some improvements to the hallway you must walk through after valet parking. Again, I am surprised that a restaurant of this caliber would have such an entrance. However, that being said, still a fabulous meal and wonderful service!

    Was looking forward to this visit as we had never been to Morton's. Greeted warmly by friendly hostess and shown to table. I had one of the specials, filet mignon and lobster tail. Lobster tail good and filet had good taste and perfectly cooked but chewy. At one point wifey held my plate because plate was rattling as I cut steak. Wifey ordered the five peppercorn prime strip. Steak was cooked a proper medium rare, but had not "sat" long enough and blood ran throughout plate and into the very small portion of au poivre sauce. Ruined the whole steak which she barely touched and it was also very chewy. Not what was expected for $57.Side of sauteed sprouts was burnt and hard-inedible. Best part was au gratin potatoes, chocolate cake. Terrible
