  • Mediocre restaurant week meal
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/24/2013
    Went here for restaurant week. Had to specifically ask for the restaurant week menu when it was not mentioned at all by the server. Steak was overcooked. Tables were too close together and it was difficult to have a conversation while overhearing conversations on both sides of our table. Would not go here again.

    The new decor really takes away from the experience. I felt like I was in hotel restaurant. The food was good as always. Service was bit lacking. This was my last visit to them. I want to remember Morton's as it was, not how it is now.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 8/23/2013
    Perhaps it's because we went during Restaurant Week but I'd asked if the quality of the food was the same as when it's not RW (we've encountered lower quality goods during this time at some of DC's top restaurants and when confronted the staff admits that they do not serve their regular quality meats in an effort to offset their costs during RW) but the hostess assured me it was the same. Really? I've eaten at Morton's any number of times and have always enjoyed my steak yet this time it arrived looking drab and alone on my plate; presentation was nil, the meat flavorless, the color dull and the texture slightly tough due to having been overcooked. So much for the great birthday dinner I'd anticipated.

  • great food with marginal service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/23/2013
    My wife and I went to Morton's for a night in the town with another couple who has never been to Morton's in Georgetown. We ordered filet mignon which was simply outstanding. The other couple was impressed with the food as well. The service by the waiter was rather disappointing though the supporting cast was professional and friendly. I asked for coffee after the meal and I was told to wait by the waiter. I felt as if he was not happy that we sat at one of his tables. A bit disappointed because otherwise it would’ve been a superb dining experience.

    My husband and I dined here for Restaurant week. It seemed like a huge value since the cost of our steak on their regular menu was more than the complete restaurant week price. However, it seems like you get what you pay for here. We started with two different salads, the Morton's and the spinich. They were both fine, nothing spectacular. We both ordered the 6oz fillet medium rare. However, the seaks were so unevenly cut, that half the steak (the thicker side) was perfect while the other side was way over done. The steaks also had little flavor. The sides were fine again but nothing great. The dessert was the best part so leave room!

    I'm a foodie when it comes to good steak, and I've always loved Morton's steaks since I started going there for my birthday a few years ago. This past visit was a birthday dinner for me, again, and I loved everything--like always. My service was impeccable from the wait staff to the managers coming to the table to check on our service. The ambience is very calming, trendy, and quiet. If you're looking for a romantic spot, definitely go to Morton's. My boyfriend and I had the 6oz filet mignon (cooked medium), loaded baked potato, and bacon mac & cheese, which were all wonderful. There is a sommelier for wine pairings, as well.

    I had previously been to the Morton's in Bethesda, but it doesnt even compare to the Morton's in Georgetown! It was fantastic!!! We went on a week night to celebrate our anniversary, and they treated us like royalty. The location is great, and perfect for walking around before or after lunch/dinner. The food was excellent and prepared perfectly to our liking, and the wine list had great variety. The new decor was beautiful and modern. The service was great and the GM stopped by to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. I cannot wait to go back, and I want to go soon. We had dinner in the dining area, but I want to go back and try the bar for happy hour or the outdoor seating area - it was just that good! I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    I WAS DISAPPOINTED ON THIS VISIT BECAUSE OF THE SERVICE. WHEN I MADE MY RESERVATION I REQUESTED A SPECIFIC WAITER, DANIEL. SO WHEN WE GOT THERE I REMINDED THE HOST ABOUT MY REQUEST. WE WAITED 20 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE EVEN CAME TO OUR TABLE. THEN DANIEL DIDNT COME IT WAS REGGIE, WHO EXPLAINED THAT DANIEL HAD OTHER TABLES & HE WOULD BE HELPING HIM OUT WITH US, THEY WOULD WORK AS A TEAM. DANIEL EVEN STOPPED PAST TO APOLOGIZE & THANK US FOR REQUESTING HIM. THE PROBLEM I HAD WASNT WITH DANIEL OR REGGIE BECAUSE THEY WERE BOTH DOING THERE JOB, THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THE HOST BECAUSE HE SHOULD HAVE INFORMED US OF THE SITUATION & LET US CHOOSE NOT TO WAIT FOR DANIEL. WE WERE THERE FOR 2 1/2 HOURS!!!

    Had the 8 oz filet mignon. Was cooked perfectly and extremely tender. I would have preferred a little more seasoning. Steak was perfect with a little added salt. The mac and cheese was delicious. So was my salad with pear and blue cheese. We had the chocolate mousse and crème brulee for dessert...both outstanding. Ambience was very nice with a modern feel to it. We had good service.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Morton's in Georgetown--her favorite restaurant. We were warmly welcomed, given a very nice table and provided with exceptionally good service. Every menu item we ordered was delicious. We started with shrimp cocktails, followed by the spinach salad. My wife ordered the bone-in rib eye steak and I ordered the 8 ounce filet mignon. Both were tender and flavorful. Our dessert selection was the apple pie with ice cream which we shared. It was a treat. The manager took our picture and presented it to us during the meal and the dessert was complementary, since it was our anniversary. We love this restaurant and highly recommend it to everyone.

  • Our meal for four was delicious
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/7/2013
    Our meal for four was delicious - from the fresh, warm bread to the salads (great Caesar) and soup (onion) to the meat and sides. Our party split an order of Brussels sprouts and one of mac and cheese. Both were amazing. We all ordered different cuts of meat and they were all cooked as requested with delicious flavor and texture. We splurged and ordered (at the beginning of our meal) a raspberry souffle - what a treat...light and sweet and definitely enough for the four of us. The service was attentive but not hovering. We stayed for a long time and did not feel rushed. We would definitely recommend Morton's for a special occasion.

    Morton's was very good and the menu is somewhat varied with a few more seafood additions. However, it is ridiculously priced...so come prepared with a full wallet...that can be emptied. The service and food were very good, although the onion loaf bread is tiresome, if you frequently visit Morton's. Enjoy....but buyer beware!!

    I used to go to Morton's fairly frequently but haven't been in a few years. The steak is still great and is still up to par. The wine steward told me that they had recently been purchased by Landry's and had just changed decor and processes. The casino decor is bad. The waiter was difficult to understand (combination of noise and accent). Staples were gone like the soufflé. And overall I felt rushed. If this is there future plan I won't be back.

The restaurant was newly renovated, very contemporary yet comfortable and classy. The wait staff was very attentive . We were impressived as having dined at several places throughout the week we had found the service yo be lacking at most restaurants! Morton's delivers great food and excellent service. I had the Tuna tower - excellent ! And the sea bass - beyond compare!!

    Dined on 5/11/2013
    Once again, in Georgetown, this time for my son's graduation from AU, we chose Morton's for our celebratory dinner and the experience was flawless! Service was perfect. The food, as usual, was above reproach. We had a nice stop at the bar on the way in, as our table was politely held, in spite of the room being so busy. Steak was spot on -- best you can find! My wife loved her (ugh) chicken. Seafood appetizers (scallops and oysters!) were perfect. Desserts were delicious but not overly sweet, just too good despite being so "filled" from dinner. Finally, as usual, the pacing was measured and precise. This experience (and today's praise hides a closet critic who does not mind finding fault), was the topper -- ideal in every way.

    Despite 2 stars never going back. Food was really good but service was so bad no reason to choose this over the many other excellent steak houses in the area. Unfortunately I well exceeded the space limitations in trying to describe how bad the service was, but bottom line is service was unacceptable for any restaurant, especially one as pricey as this. They seem to have a collective server approach, which in our case meant no one really seemed responsible for us, and we had to take initiative to flag down waiters, some of whom actually brought us what we asked and some of whom didn't. Bottom line is no way we're going back.

    Morton's (The Steakhouse) is a nice place for date night for two not for larger groups. I booked reservations for a large party of 14 and my group became a party of 6. The restaurant was very accommodating to my group but the service was SLOW this particular evening. Initially, the waiter was attentive to our party but our meals came out intermittently. It appeared that once some of our food arrived the waiter no longer was interested in taking care of our group . His attention was focused on the new customers arriving. I constantly flagged someone for water, bread, condiments and utensils. I expected better service from Morton's for the menu prices. Overall, The FOOD was EXCELLENT!!!! I will return...only on date night with my hubby!

I apologize for not remembering his name, but I do remember him saying he was an actor. Also be sure to ask about the unadvertised specials, they had a terrific steak/seafood special for $59!! Definitely plan on returning again real soon & requesting Daniel again!!
