    I have been a huge fan of Morton's for years - a couple of decades in fact. Have thoroughly enjoyed their Cajun Ribeye as the quintessential steak. Over the last visits the steak has become pretty average and certainly not commensurate with the price tag - which I never had a problem with before. Somehow I keep hoping the quality will return to the way it used to be, but alas I find it not to be the case. I will likely continue to keep giving it a try but in good conscience would not recommend to anyone at this time. There are numerous other steakhouses that offer tastier cuts and a more palatable price point.

    The most recent visit was not the best dinner I have had here. Some of that may be my own fault also. I ordered the Onion Soup, not good at all, lumpy and way to thick, plus over heated (like microwave over heated), Scorching. Should have stuck the the usual Lobster Bisque. They had a steak special, a bone in Manhattan cut (NY strip) but not a good cut at all, chewy no flavor and very small cut and tiny bone for $66. Ate about half and made mention about the cut. They were kind enough to remove from the bill. I should have gone with the Cajun Ribeye. My Daughters NY Strip was over cooked dry and flavorless, normally this is a great cut. Oh well sometimes it's an off night. Service was very good, sides were excellent.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    the food was wonderful but the service did not live up to expectations for a top rated steakhouse. Our waiter never brought the second glass of wine we ordered, even though my glass sat empty the entire meal. At the end of the meal we waited more than 10-minutes to complete the payment process. The manager stopped at our table and asked how we enjoyed the meal, when I replied the service was poor he just proceeded to the next table without asking the reason for our dissatisfaction. First and last time to this location but will try another morton's location in future.

    steve was amazing! We were early for our reservation, Steve made easy work of our drink requests at the bar. Through dinner he personally delivered our drink orders to our table, stopping to chat throughout. For dessert I ordered the Morton's coffee, but requested modifications. He was more than happy to try making it for me, and not surprisingly, the drink was fantastic. Dinner was delicious, oddly enough the matchstick truffle fries were our favorite side, and the shrimp cocktail was a great starter. Steaks were cooked perfectly, and overall the meal was just simply enjoyable.

    My meal was exceptional! I had the spare ribs, brussell sprouts and baked potato. You won't find this combination on the menu, however, the chef accommodated our request. Every bite was tasty! Although I was satisfied with the meal, I ordered the carrot cake to go. It was delicious! The meal is a bit pricey but it was well worth it. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. Overall, F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!

    This was the worst dinner at Morton's I have EVER had!! Ordered porter house steak for 2 at( $116 )medium and it came well done on a cold plate.!! Meat was definitely NOT a prime cut. Sides were equally as bad-tasteless and cold. Even the cheesecake was terrible!!. New owners, please bring back chefs, menu, caliber of steaks! Also a clue Morton's is going down hill is that, we were there on a Saturday night at 8pm and it was empty!! I remember the days when the line was out the door!! Ruth Chris has you beat HANDS DOWN! Maybe hire their management to reorganize and rehire!!!

    Usually a great experience but service this time was poor. Waitress brought us the watermelon salad when we asked for the tomato and onion salad. How do you miss-hear that? Then she forgot my seafood add-on with my filet and our knives for the steaks. She also took much too long to ask me if I wanted a second drink and then I waited for my wine. Food is always great but this night was not epic in any way.

    We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and could not have selected a better place. I made a reservation online and noted that we were celebrating the occasion. They printed a special menu for us as a keepsake (along with the regular menu to order from). They took our picture and gave it to us in a folio - another keepsake. The service was first rate and the food was excellent. Although my steak was a little undercooked in the middle initially, the waitress took the half eaten piece back and it was recooked to perfection. The manager even brought over another order of hot green beans and apologized for the inconvenience. Nice touch!! We had a wonderful and memorable dinner and I would highly recommend dining there.

    You know what you get when you go to Morton's. They always have great food and excellent service. It is our night out for birthday's, our anniversary, and special occasions. They have the best lava cake for dessert. I make sure to order it first. I get the lava cake even when my meal comes with some other free dessert, its that good.

    This was our first visit to Morton's and we were not disappointed. The wine and cocktail lists were very diverse. The Oysters Rockefeller were succulent and the Filet Mignon cooked to perfection. Both were superb! I do need to say that you need to bring a fat wallet here as you pay for everything a-la-carte. Well worth the price though!

    The food is good, not great. I have had more flavorful steak at Arthurs for less that half the price. The steaks average around $69. My appetizer (cold shell fish) was approximately $30.00. Expect to spend at least $350/couple without dessert and coffee. We did not have dessert so I cannot comment. I will say that our server was wonderful. He was extremely attentive, warm and skilled. The surface was exceptional but honestly, we would not return. I expect exceptional food for the price of this meal and I tasted nothing exceptional.

    I took my man out for a treat to Morton's for a surprise "man date." This place was great. We got dressed up and were excited to try something new. Turns out they treated us like royalty! They pulled the table out for us to comfortably get into our booth and tended to our every need. The Cajun ribeye, horseradish mashed potatoes, and Morton's coffee were spectacular. Dee was our waitress. We couldn't have asked for a better waitress. She was perfect. This date couldn't have been better.

    Another spectacular dinner at Morton's. Went for the $40 special which is on till the middle of September. Great price for a 3 course meal. Had caesar salad. filet mignon, mashed potato, and desert. Husband had wedge of lettuce, bacon with blue cheese, filet mignon, garlic & green beans and desert. Food never disappoints. Service is spectacular. Diane our server is awesome. This is the second time we had her and she is a gem. Morton's should be proud.

    We were looking for a nice place for our Anniversary dinner & we hadn't been to a nice place in a while. I have been to the Morton's in Baltimore, but that was many years ago. The Maitre de greeted us knowing what the occasion was and sat us at a very nice e table. He then produced a customized menu for us noting our anniversary which was a very nice touch. The water was pleasant & knew his food. The food was awesome and there was plenty. I highly recommend this place & will be going there very soon to take my son for a nice steak dinner. Great job all around by the Chef & the staff. thank you for a wonderful evening!!!

    Surprised at the food quality and service. Have not been there in 2 years and was disappointed in the changes to the quality and service. I ordered the classic NY strip and could have sworn it was a rib eye. In the past the Morton's NY Strip was my favorite steak but this did not resemble anything I had in the past, was very disappointed. Service was also disappointing seemed the waiter was training and just did not have enough experience to know everything on the menu. Waiter was nice but had to keep going to the back to see if they offered things we were asking for which were specials. I was very disappointed at the overall experience and will not be coming back.

    We were excited to visit Morton's for their Lobster special . Unfortunatley the Lobster was precooked , taken out of the shell , pieces were then put back in the main shell and served cool . The Lobster meat had a grizzly taste . We expected a fully cooked fresh Lobster . On top of that the bar area was packed and "Happy Hour" was unavailable so we made double the price for drinks .Bringing this situation to the attention of the Manager resulted in him being dismissive . we will not return .

    We usually go here for special occasions. Went for spouse's birthday, asking three weeks in advance for a booth. Arrived - no booth since "everyone who wanted one got one". We replied "obviously not". Waited 40 min for a booth to open up. Staff tried their best to make up for mgt's mistake but everything seemed a bit off that night. Hopefully the next visit will be back up to their usual standard.

This was my second Mortons visit inudong NYC and probably done with chain all together.
