    I have celebrated special occasions with Morton's in varying locations including Nashville, New Orleans, Cincinnati and Hartford since 1990. Saturday night was, by far, one of the most disappointing meals of my life. In fact, my food was so bad I took one bite of the Oscar and didn't even try the steak (which I ordered 'medium' and knew immediately something was wrong since the steak came out with blood oozing. The $18 Crab Cake was mushy and not jumbo lump crab at all. We went to celebrate out daughter's back to school - no celebratory mention (even though I did note on the reservations). The manager did comp my meal but we still spent $250 for husband and children. What a terrible experience. I will not spend my dollars here again.

    We have eaten in numerous Morton's and have always enjoyed the food! This experience continued the chain of very good food experiences. Unfortunately, management had understaffed the wait service so that we had long pauses when there should not have been. It seemed, on a busy Saturday night, that the kitchen could not get the food together for the very full house.

    The setting of this restaurant did not present a good ambiance. Enclosed with what appeared to be no window, this restaurant was a bit loud due the acoustic effect of the room. It offered a semi enclosed bar area, private rooms for small parties and the main dining hall. All food was prepared well, and seasoned to taste, however, the 8 oz. Filet and the 16 oz. Pork chops were found to be a bit dry and were not as flavorful as anticipated. 16oz Double-Cut Prime Pork Chop well portion, great appearance, great color and seared well. The pork chop was well seasoned with multiple flavors and balance but extremely dry. 8 oz. The filet was dry, seasoned to taste, but not flavorful.

    This was my first time dining at Morton's. My boyfriend and I decided to visit for their summer Taste of Hartford prix fixe menu, but ended up ordering off the full menu because the options were too tempting. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The service was beyond friendly and accommodating from start to finish. The prices really make this a "special occasion" restaurant for me. But between the excellent food and service, you definitely get your money's worth. We'll definitely return!

    Best steak I've ever had in my life- the Chicago styled ribeye. The peppered strip steak was also amazing, but maybe a little too thick of a pepper crust and definitely sat in the shadow of the ribeye. The chopped salad I got I personally didn't enjoy at all, but my date ate my plate for me and evidently loved it. The bacon Mac and cheese was everything you could hope for for a Mac and cheese, definitely a must-order, as well as the legendary sundae. Very kind service, and I think the manager even stopped at every table to see how people were doing. I sat next to the kitchen and could watch the steaks being prepared, that was a very neat aspect.

    We came here during restaurant week to fulfill a craving for steak we both had been having. We were completely blown away. We know Morton's is known for their steaks, but the meat surpassed all our expectations. Didn't try anything else on the menu, though the accompanying mashed potatoes were excellent as well. Service was excellent. Word of advice: medium here implies a fair more amount of red / pink meat inside compared to other (albeit lower quality) restaurants. Ambiance is relatively dark lighting without any windows to give sort of a candlelit feeling. Some may like this and some may not. Overall excellent experience.

    I have always had a great dining experience at Morton's and this time was no different, except the waitress remembered me from my last visit (a pleseant surprise). I can't say enough about our waitress, Sarah C. She was attentive, personable and made us feel very welcomed. I had a friend join me who had never been to Morton's. She was immediately impressed and vows to return with her husband. Finally, it was clearly a team effort to Nicholas, Neftali and Sarah C. and of course the managers checking in to ensure we were happy. We really enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed the 6oz filet oscar style (melt in your mouth) and the double pork chop (wow), cheesecake and key lime pie were very good too. Thanks again!!

    This is our first time at Mortons as part of Taste of Hartford 2014. Very pleasantly surprised. After using valet parking, we were greeted, asked wether we wanted a booth or table and seated promptly. Although Restaurant Week menu's are smaller that their regular menu, the choices were very adequate and proviuded plenty of food. Why steak houses put a huge steak knive in front of you is an puzzle, as our filet could have been cut with a fork. As we were celebrating our son's birthday, the hostess provided us with a picture of the occasion as we left. We'll be back.

    Eating at Morton's in downtown Hartford is always a special experience. The service is extraordinary, and the food is delicious. I ordered the 35th anniversary course, starting with a perfectly dressed Caesar salad, then the tasty filet mignon with broccoli as a side, and ending with the small but satisfying chocolate mousse dessert. To accompany my meal, I tried the Cabernet special for $16, the most I've ever paid for wine but also the best red I've ever had. The cappuccino I ordered to go with the dessert was hot and foamy. The dining room has an upscale but relaxed vibe. I would strongly recommend Morton's, especially to celebrate a special occasion.

    This was once our go to high end streak house.....not any more. Very disappointed in steak, wasn't cooked properly and you needed a knife to cut this filet (unlike prior visits). Potatoes had so much horseradish we couldn't eat them. However, I did not complain as we were dining with others and didn't want to make an issue of the food. Will be a Ruth Chris customer going forward.

    First time at Morton's Hartford, and first time at a Morton's. We decided to go after a show at the XL Center on a Sunday afternoon. I made reservations thru Open Table on my phone while we were waiting for the show to start... it was that quick and easy. It was a short walk on a gorgeous day but we were a bit nervous while walking tho. I would definitely recommend the valet. The food was delicious... bread, salad, steaks cooked to perfection, sides and dessert. We ordered specialty drinks which were absolutely fabulous. The service from the time we walked through the door was outstanding. Would definitely visit another Morton's. Would "maybe" visit Hartford if it were during the day again.

    There are not enough words to describe the wonderful experience dining at Morton's provides. The food is phenomenal. Even the side dishes raise the bar to an entirely new level. The steaks were prepared perfectly. The grilling technique left them tender and flavorful. The portions are large and satisfying. It is worth the price in ever respect.
