    Went to Mortons with friends for Dine Out Fort Lauderdale package. Steak was the same and very good. Salad and soup much smaller portion. Sides were very limited and not very good. Dessert was pretty good. Key Lime Pie excellent. Chocolate mousse good. Cheesecake was average at best..

    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.

    I am sooooo glad that I picked Morton's The Steakhouse to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday surprise! The party coordinator Daphne (which had the same name as me, what a coincidence hahaha) was absolutely amazing at getting everything I wanted. She was so personable, a great lisener, very kind! The staffs were also awesome...the service and how special they made the birthday man feel...it was a perfect experience! Thank you so very much Daphne & Morton's The Steakhouse!

    We came here because of Dine -Out Month so we chose the pre-fixe menu. Otherwise, this can be a pricey place to eat. The selections were good and the portions were generous, and the service was great Overall, I would say a good dinner, although not quite outstanding.

    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.

    Since Landrys bought Morton's they have ruined what used to be a wonderful restaurant. The steaks are just average and the crab cake was horrific, very garlicky. The service was still excellent but the food is not the same as before.

    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.

    I had an amazing experience at Morton's Steakhouse. I live just a few blocks down the street and never expected to be in such awe. The waiter was very attentive to our needs and my reservation was honored by the lovely host. The manager even came out to check on us which was such a pleasure. Not only was the food a pure delight but the music and ambiance makes you want to come back for more.

    I went here for the first time for my 31st birthday. We all had the $49 4 course menu. All the food was delicious. I had a mojito that was perfectly made. My boyfriend had the Morton's Barrel Aged Manhattan which was smooth. Each portion was nice. We definitely got our money's worth. The best part was our menus said Happy Birthday and we received a photo as well. I highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely go back.

    Disapppointing! The service was excellent. This restaurant has established a high bar for itself. On this night it failed to reach its mark. The onion soup was weak and where were the onions? I had a rib eye. It was cooked medium rare as ordered, and well seasoned. The meat was tough and had far too much gristle. It was hard to believe that this was USDA prime beef. Maybe it was just Father's Day.

    The service with James and staff was OUTSTANDING. Filet minon was excellent. Potatoes (lyonase and au gratin) were so so. Double cut pork chops were horrible...rubbery. It was too busy in the kitchen to send them back and order something else. We brought them home thinking we could salvage them - but could not and ended up throwing them out. Parking is uncomfortable for disabled persons as the walk from where one leaves the car to restaurant is l o n g. Parking attendant did not really help us get in and out. Overall, it was not worth the $200 we spent there. Will be searching for another steak house.

    It is unfortunate, we had our FIRST Bad experience at Mortons. We visit Mortons about a dozen times a year and continue to go back because the Food and The Service is simply The Best! However, this evening we had another couple with us and we tried a Brand New Appeatizer and it was Salty Beyond Words, SOFTSHELL CRAB OVER CAPERS WITH SAUCE and it was way too SALTY! We certainly could have lived with that. BUT - the BoneIn Ribeye my husband ordered was CHARCOALED BURNT! - He ask for medium and pittsburgh.... perhaps Mortons is not able to pittsburgh, this is the first time he ever ordered a pittsburgh steak from Mortons. It was Extremely Bad, I insisted that he send it back, but he didn't want to. Waiter should have corrected this!

    We had a great time at Morton's! We went there to celebrate our anniversary. It was soooooo good! It is definitely not within our normal price range as a family with young kids but we did have a $200 giftcard to spend so were able to try several of your delicious dishes! Excellent service, food and atmosphere. I love how the maitre d came by to take our picture, and then printed it out within minutes to give to us as a keepsake of our anniversary celebration. Also, we enoyed the most delicious chocolate cake & ice cream on the house as a sweet anniversary comp! All in all, great great experience! :)
