    When you go to a steakhouse you expect to be wowed. This wasn't the case at Mortons Las Olas. First the French wine on the list couldn't be found. Next our center seats in a utilitarian dining room might've been more approriate for the lunch crowd and not a date night dinner. And the food was pedestrian. Our 22 ounce Chicago prime steak came overcooked at the edges because it was thin and long not a thick cut. Ordinary brussel sprouts and lyonnaise potatos. The Grand Marnier souffle was superb. Interesting that the manager never appeared;. Nor did the sommelier after his first delivery.

    My husband and I usually meet my parents at the Morton's in Boca Raton for dinner and we always love it. That being so, and being that we live around the corner from the Fort Lauderdale Morton's we decided to eat there. Night and day. Plenty of other places in area the spend money for a steak. Don't waste money here.

    It has been a long time since I visited Mortons, and my first time in Fort Lauderdale. I was shocked at the prices and the ambiance felt business like, stark and monotone. The food was delicious, but there was no justification for how expensive it was. Next time I want an upscale Steak dinner it will be back to Capital Grill.

    Old school steakhouse with upscale ambiance. Impeccable service and highest quality food, cooked to perfection. While dining with Dine Out Lauderdale's $35 deal, I was afraid that portion sizes would be small, but they were so generous that i couldn't finish my dessert. Perfect cocktails and impressive wine list. Morton's has free valet, can't beat that in downtown!

    First time visit and we were so impressed with the service. Our steaks were perfect and all the food was delicious but the Lava Cake dessert should not be missed. Prices are on the high end but you know that going in. Celebrated our 23rd Anniversary and every employee was so kind and genuine. Thank you Morton's Ft Lauderdale for a memorable night! We loved our special printed menu and our photograph to take home.

    After a long ride south we rewarded ourselves with a trip to the bar for an adult beverage and bites. We were lucky enough to stumble onto an extended happy hour so we had some drinks and enjoyed a little of several things (trio of filter mignon, shrimp cocktail and mac & cheese). As always, the mac & cheese is ridiculously good and the "bites" were just enough to hit the spot. We got to relax, watch a football game (my alma mater was playing and they kindly put it on) and savor some great food.

    We go to Morton's around the country quite frequently. This service experience was not very good. The waiter was very slow and inattentive. A glass of wine took 15 minutes for delivery. And they couldn't find the brand our table mate requested. I will credit them for taking off a percentage on the bill, but it was definitely not up to Morton's standards. We ordered the $35 special and wondered if we were being slighted because of that.

    Wine I selected was not available. I was offered a higher priced bottle at cost of first selected. We had two bottles but I was charged the higher price for the second one. As the evening went along and the crowd increased we had a long wait to order our deserts and drinks. we could not find our waiter. No fault of his, you were understaffed. He did the best he could. I did not want to correct the bill it was not a big deal and I did not want to wait and catch him and wait longer. Do not send me a coupon for the price adjustment on the wine. I have never used one. I paid the regular price and the wine was great.

    Ignored by the hostess (A was the first letter of her name) as a party of 3 with no reservation were seated before us although we arrived 1st with reservations for 10/24/14 at 9:15. The manager then seated us (female about 5'1- nice and energetic). Water was was brought to us, then we waited 25-30 min literally. Finally the waitress (petite, 5'8, accent) apologized stating her and the waitstaff were confused as to who we belonged to. Finally we got a menu and was able to place our drink order, the drink was free and came out in under 3min. The manager and waitress then gave us free crab cakes w/o us asking for anything, they really did try to turn this disaster around (a 1 turned into a 5). Meal tasted fine and came out in a timely manner.

    Overall a nice place. Excellent steak. However compared to the lower priced alternatives these are the major comparisions. Bottom line if you can toss money around this is another place to do it otherwise select a generic steak house.

    Have eaten at this location once before, and it was a remarkable experience. Up to then it was by far the best food service and dining experience I've had. Most recent visit, completely the opposite. Steak was well over done, potatoes were no better than at a late night diners and service was below par. HIGHLY disappointed in recent visit.

    It took 1 1/2 for our entrees to arrive. My steak was served medium rare although it was ordered medium well. The mushroom side dish was cold. My cappuccino arrived with a piece of green vegetable in it. We were given a $90 credit but the meal was ruined.

    WENT FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION AND HAD THE BROWARD DINES DEAL FOR $35 EACH. DO NOT BOTHER. THEY GIVE YOU A MEAL THE SIZE OF A CHILD'S PLATE. THE MEAT WAS THE SIZE OF A DOT (DEFINITELY NOT 6 OZ, THE SIDE WAS MUCH SMALLER, AND THE DESSERT WAS THE SMALLEST CUP OF MOUSSE I'VE EVER SEEN. DONE IN TWO SPOONS. THE SOUP WAS ALSO SMALLER THAN WHAT YOU WOULD SERVE A CHILD). IF YOU CAN'T SERVE A DECENT MEAL THAT IS COMPARABLE -- DON'T MAKE A "DEAL" THAT ISN'T A DEAL AT ALL. THE SERVER WAS SO RUDE AND SNOOTY AS WELL. NEVER AGAIN. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION, ALL YOU'LL SAVE AT THE END IS A TRIP THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE TO ANOTHER RESTAURANT.

    The scene was awesome and we had a great server who recommended some good choices. We both had the "Cajun Ribeye" The medium was perfect, but the med well was salty and burn pretty much. We do not like to complain, so we dealt with it. For $70.00 I was expecting more to be honest. I could have eaten the Blue Cheese Salad, and I would have been fine with it. The server was Australian and was one of the best I've had!

  • Too much marbling in ribeye
    JohnWintersVIP
    Dined on 9/22/2014
    Overall experience was good but for a steakhouse, the ribeye was less than desirable. Ribeye was a bit tough and lots of marbling. Favor of the meat itself was just a bit bland. Independent steakhouses such as Bern’s in Tampa or Lugers in New York operate on an entire level above this Morton’s. Asparagus was also tough and I’m not quite sure it was cooked enough. The highlight was the caesar salad. That was actually good.

    We came on a special occasion. We ordered a great bottle of wine and apps, and the $116 steak meal for two. The office manager came out of the back and sliced the steak with a small steak knife and hacked at our $116 purchase like a barbarian. It was very visually unappealing (not in a chef coat or culinary trained) tearing the steak. It was raining when we left. We asked the hostess if there was a covered exit to valet; she said no. We got soaked and later found out there was in fact another exit. Overall poor service, poor presentation and the food was not nearly as up to par as we expected. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. As we frequent the Chart House on the inter coastal we will keep out business their.

    Not the best Experience. Have dined here before. It was an off night I guess. Our steaks came out and were totally over cooked. My medium had no pink and my fiance got a Burnt well-done with heavy charring on top. She didn't finish it (a true first!). Also ordered 5 onion soup and boy was it salty!! Blech!! Other than our great server this trip was a total bust. Oh did I mention I paid over $200 bucks for this experience?!!! Never again.

    Our waiter was absolutely outstanding. They really want to make sure you are completely satisfied everything. This is a steakhouse so I was a little disappointed when the steak was not cooked as ordered and had to go back. The sides were removed too in order to keep them warm while the steak was cooked a little longer. Although conscientious, all this is very distracting when trying to converse and enjoy dinner. It's assumed that an upscale steakhouse could cook a steak the correct way the first time. The horseradish mash potatoes and spinach with mushrooms were incredible and the drinks were made to perfection.
