Diner Reviews
  • "You don't have a steak option at Morton's for lunch, they have wonderful sandwiches and salads as well. My personal favorite is the prime rib french dip. It's a great place for a business lunch."

  • "We celebrated our 8yr anniversary at the Morton's downtown Houston. Everything was perfect. i have no regrets at all. The food & service Great! We challenged the chef to customize our anniversary meal at the last minute. Not only did he prepare the food the way we asked, the taste was outstanding and the food did not take long to come. This is proof that fast service doesn't means your food has to be rushed nor taste like it was rushed. Great job executing the food to perfection. I highly recommend this restaurant for it excellence in food and service. From the manager on down everything was great. "

  • "Service extremely lacking this trip! Lots of empty tables & yet they sat a 4top with a very large man so close to out booth every waiter & patron that tried to pass thru bumped out table! We had a tab over 250.00 for 2 people & our beverage glasses were low to empty multiple times couldn't locate our waiter & he was not coming back very often to check on us! My tea had no ice when it was half full. He was not friendly either! That is my favorite restaurant & last night was a big disappointment! Lobster bisque was very thin last night watery like. Steaks were good 2 sides however were not. Overall the service was the worst part of the night,& like i said it was not very busy at all, lots of empty tables."

  • "Morton's is pretty pricey, and had saved up to take my son out for his birthday. The hostess advised they would make it special. Unfortunately, our server must have been new, because although he was pleasant enough, he did not seem to really know the menu. Chicken Christopher was described as" two chicken breasts ,lightly breaded with the sauce underneath". When I asked him about a particular drink, the answer was "very popular". The hostess gave us a Souvenir menu, and said your server will make sure we remember your birthday...nothing.... Steak was excellent but otherwise, I wouldn't spend that kind of money again. Maybe it was an off night, or maybe we should have gone to the Galleria location."

  • "An amazing establishment a must go steakhouse to dine. From the time I walk in the staff are friendly & quick to accommodate you. My wife & I celebrated her b day & had the pleasure of having Annie as our server. The steaks are cook to perfection: season well, juicy, tender, steamed hot. Must ask for Mac & cheese and creamy corn."

  • "Took a friend here for lunch on her birthday and they rolled out the red carpet for her. Had happy birthday printed out on the menu with her name, provided a free awesome dessert, and took a photo for her. Several people of the management staff came by and wished her a happy birthday. They really did a great job of making her feel special. Would defiantly take others here."

  • "I have never been treated so well by a restaurant staff as I was at Morton's! I have been to Morton's before, but not for a celebratory meal. It was my anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it special for my husband and me."

  • "I was in Houston on business and visited the restaurant alone. Not a good idea as their menu is set up for 2 or more. No small portions available. I could have split every part of the meal. Chocolate mousse was essentially chocolate pudding for $11.00. Everything else was delicious but pricey. Waitress Kaitlyn and staff were excellent."

  • "What I love most about Morton's Steakhouse is that wonderful traditional steakhouse experience ambiance. It brings me back to earlier decades when dining was an experience to be enjoyed, not rushed through. The steaks at Morton's are always delicious and cooked perfectly to temp. I look forward to my next Morton's experience already!"

  • "So disapointed with the quality of the food, Mortons used to deliver top quality food for a price. Did Saltgrass steak house take over Mortons while I wasnt looking? Steaks were medeocre, lobsters were inedible. Waiter just plain did not care. Good thing we are in Houston so many other real quality steak houses to go to, Mortons will not even be missed."

  • "Stopped in for a dinner after an early wedding. We needed a nice place and a fantastic dinner to make up for my boyfriend's birthday and Valentine's since we did nothing for those days. After arriving at Vic and Anthony's at 5:00pm and being told we wouldn't get a table until 10:15p (!!) we said lets hit Morton's. Glad we did!! Were seated right away. Lovely decor and the staff were all so prompt and helpful. The Chicago style strip was to die for, as was the Mixed Grill (filet, scallops and shrimp). Everything was delicious and the recommendations from the waiter were much appreciated. We were happy we treated ourselves here!!!"

  • "I have dined at Morton's around the country and frequent steak restaurants in Houston. I decided to give Morton's in Downtown Houston a try because it was conveniently located. The ambience was fine and service was excellent, but then our steak arrived. I ordered the porterhouse for two and was really looking forward to a great meal. The steak was ordered medium rare as I usually order it, but the steak came out burnt. Typically you sear a steak, but this one was burnt. It had no flavor and was not evenly cooked. Some pieces were cooked well while others were rare. I was very disappointed and will not be back to Morton's. The question I do have to ask is why would the manager that cut the steak allow it to be served?"

  • "We usually eat at the Morton's in San Antonio and it is wonderful. Great Ambiance, Romantic and the food is always perfect. This time we ate at the Morton's in Downtown Houston before going to a show. The restaurant was very noisy, the food was awful, very salty and overcooked. Our souffles were like a kitchen sponge. Probably will not eat at the Downtown Morton's again. Very bad experience."

  • "Morton's was an important evening for our company although we only had three executives joining me as the chairman they were new to Mortons the food was wonderful the service was awesome wonderful night in the heart of Houston."

  • "I was in a group of 5 in town for a business conference. Morton's was within walking distance of our hotel. We were seated right away and our waiter attended to our every need. His recommendation of the cajun ribeye was excellent."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "I decided to make this trip to Morton's alone as my usual and steady date was out of town. I made the reservation through Open Table and was glad I did. The place was absolutely packed as I expected. I was quickly seated in a booth (all by myself) and Claire was there in no time to get the ball rolling. I have never even remotely had a bad experience at Morton's and it has turned into my favorite neighborhood place to get a quality dinner at the end of the week. There are menu items for almost every diet concern and several times when I've dined there the Chef has sent the server to make sure everything would be perfect. The wine list is both extensive and reasonable. The people behind the bar know what they're doing. Highly recommend."

  • "Morton's was okay, not great. Not nearly as good as the one in Chicago. The ribeye, which we ordered medium, was charred black on the outside and pink on the inside. It appeared to be cooked too fast."

  • "Service in the bar area was terrible. After receiving food bartender never asked if we needed anything again. Had to raise my voice to get his attention to get the check. Would like to have had dessert and an after dinner drink but decided to go elsewhere."

  • "Good Wine Selection and nice atmosphere and service. However, the steaks are better at many of the other fine steak houses in Houston for this price."

  • "Took my mom for lunch. . Wine list was great- I had a 9th ribeye lunch special which was HONESTLY probably the worst steak I've had in 10 years. (Note that I have eaten at other Mortons' before and steaks are great) However, my mom had lamb with mint jelly and swore it was great. So I gave it an average 3* rating. French onion and tomato soups both good as well.."

  • "Everything was great except the steak. It was cooked properly, but was flavorless. A little salt and pepper goes a long way, and one would expect a restaurant that calls itself "The Steakhouse" would know that."

  • "WOULD NEVER GO BACK... COOKED BOTH STEAKS WRONG...THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AT THIS CALIBER OF RESTURANT..SOMEONE WHO LOOKED LIKE A MANAGER ASKED THE COUPLE SITTING NEXT TO US HOW THERE FOOD WAS THEN LOOKED AT OUR TABLE AND WALKED PASSED OUR TABLE. I KNEW IT WAS NOT THEIR WAITER SINCE BOTH OF OUR TABLES WAS WAITED ON BE THE SAME WAITER. I ASSUME SHE WALKED PASSED MY TABLE SINCE i AM ONLY 26 AND I LOOK EVEN YOUNGER. THE COUPLE SHE APPROACHED WAS IN THEIR MID 40S. MY BILL WAS $200.27, after tip it was $240.27"

  • "The atmosphere was nice and the service was good, but the food was hit or miss.We ordered the shrimp scampi, which I tasted and it was delicious. I ordered the braised short ribs and scallops. The scallops were cooked perfectly but I must say there was an abundance of horseradish in this dish which was overpowering. I was able to eat the beef but I only ate a few bites of the mash potatoes. We also ordered a side of the twice baked au gratin potatoes which had too much dry mustard and all one could taste is mustard instead of the cheese and cream it simply overpowered the dish."

  • "good for a regular dinner, but def not for a busy holiday (valentine). got stuck in a random room, more like a closet, had a bad waiter that did not introduce himself properly, actually thought he was just the guy that serves water and buses tables. food came out luke warm and appetizer came out after entrees only after we asked about it. totally horrible $10 valet too. crazy busy night and only 2 guys working (only one parking and retrieving cars)"

  • "I was a little disappointed in Morton's. Everything was good but for the price and what you would expect from one of the top steakhouses in the country, I was not impressed. The service was the most disappointing part of the meal. I would expect a restaurant of this caliber to have an experienced and extremely helpful staff. Our waiter was fine but did not know much about the wine list or provide much assistance for food items. In my opinion, Fleming's or Vic & Anthony's are a much better choice when it comes to a high end steakhouse."

  • "We have visited Morton's restaurants in other cities & had great expectations for Morton's Downtown. Visited on a Saturday night prior to a concert at Toyota Center, as this seemed like a great option for a nice dinner pre-concert. Sadly, the quality of their beef is not on par with other Houston steakhouses, and the seasonings were nonexistent. Spinach salad was tasty, the highlight of our meal. Would have given a higher ranking for ambience, but we were seated in front of the waiters' food pickup window & listened to chef/manager shouting out orders during our entire meal. Not the experience we anticipated for a relatively expensive restaurant. We won't be returning."
