    Had not been to Morton's since renovation. Quite a change but attractive. Missed the previous food display as part of ordering - now just a menu, like every other restaurant. Too bad the old ways - which were better - are not adhered to. Not blaming Morton's; just a sign of the times, just like very casual dress code.

    I have been to 5 star restaurants several times, but I felt this restaurant was over priced for the quality of food. The lobster bisque was bland, filet was good but not exceptional, my husband was disappointed in his ribeye. He loves the true flavor of a steak but there the steak had a odd taste from I'm guessing the marinade they use? Will not be returning.

    We have been longtime customers of Morton's, for over 20 years. There are hundreds of restaurants in New Orleans to choose from and we decided to go to our old favorite, Morton's Steak House. Not such a great choice. It was my wife's Birthday so we wanted sometime familiar, both in quality of food plus the traditional steakhouse feel....boy were we wrong. The place was lets just say, flat at best. The service was wonderful. The "Worst " steak dinner ever. The wine and side dishes we ate were delicious. The special chocolate birthday cake was the best ever, so thanks. All in all it was a nice birthday for my wife. Will still be Morton's customers...but never again in New Orleans. Thank you

    We were visiting New Orleans and got tired of the local stuff so we splurged at Morton''s. The lobster on chilled seafood app was cooked to death and tuff as a golf ball. Our Medium Rare filet was cooked to death completely well done. The waitresses were awesome and noticed right away, called manager and the new steak was rare. We didn't complain, it was much better than the first. I think the whole kitchen just got in from Bourbon Street. The worst Morton's Kitchen ever. But they had the nicest wait staff. Next time were back to Ruth Chris

    I would recommend this place to take someone for a very special occasion. The steak was cooked to perfection, very succulent and everything that went with the meal was perfect. We had the potatoes- au- gratin which had a very rich and creamy cheese sauce. The onion bread with butter was amazing and this was the start to the meal. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very quiet, dim lighting and the restaurant was not so busy that it was crowded and uncomfortable. The service was like no other, my waitress checked on us often to make sure we didn't need anything. Our wine and water was refilled very often. My only regret was that I had no room for a dessert. We would make reservations to dine here again. It was expensive but well worth it.

    Our first time at Morton's, we've heard exceptional reviews from family and friends, and it was beyond our expectations. Great service... Our server went above and beyond, a modern, romantic atmosphere, and the filet was cooked to perfection. We ordered the sautéed brussel sprouts and sour cream mashed potatoes that were veer flavorful and hot! My vodka martini was perfectly chilled and shaken. I wish we had a Morton's in Memphis!

    I took my fiance here for his birthday. The ambiance was great. The food was delicious and they put bday confetti on the table, our pic was taken and they gave him a cheesecake with a candle in it at the end. Phenomenal dining experience, he loved it and so did I. The porterhouse steak melts in your mouth. The honey glazed salmon was fantastic and seasoned perfectly.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We recently ate dinner at Morton's in New Orleans on 9/12/14. We had expected this great dining experience. But, instead, we had a very average to below average experience. First of all, they were not crowded, but it took us 95 minutes to eat dinner from beginning to end. It took them 30 minutes after we finished our entrees to bring our souffle. The salad was room temperature and not good. The filet was average. Mashed potatoes and Dessert were good. Service was just fair because everything was painfully slow. Overall, I was very unimpressed with Morton's and will not return. By comparison, we then ate at Ruths' Chris in New Orleans. Overall, they had excellent food, service, and ambiance. I highly recommend Ruths' Chris!!!

    We went for the We Live to Eat special because several of us had been waiting to cross it off our bucket list. The special was worth it but I wouldnt go back and pay full price. In New Orleans there are several better places to eat. The Happy Hour specials looked good but other than that it is way over priced.

    I have been to many Morton's around the country and you can always count on a top experience. This time was the exception. The maitre d pushed a wine that he claimed was great and it was only fair. After pouring the first glass of wine he abruptly left the table and didn't return even though the restaurant had only a few tables of people. The cajun rib eye was very salty. Cajun is usually spicy rather than salty. Luckily our server pampered us and compensated for the rest of the experience. Overall the experience was just average on a non-busy Monday night. Not what we expect from Mortons.

    This was my first visit to Morton's, and I do plan to return. Great ambiance, location, and service. The food was also very well prepared. My only suggestion is to be aware of the spots on the glasses after washing, and to possibly have a better description of the food on the restaurant week menu.

    I have eaten several times at Morton's Steak House in New Orleans and was never disappointed. So for My Wife's 60th Birthday I decided we would dine there. We live in New Iberia, Louisiana and there are several good restaurants here but I thought this would be special. First she ordered onion soup it was burnt, her steak was not to her liking, potatoes, even the mushrooms were bad. I hate to say this but I do not intend to ever visit Morton's Steakhouse here or Houston are anywhere else there may be a location.

    My husband and I have visited Mortons in a few places, with this being our first to the New Orleans location. Usually it's an "event" location for us (I.e. our engagement) but this time we simply went for dinner as a family. It CERTAINLY was a disappointingly lack - luster $200+ meal. Food was cold, poorly seasoned, and just not cooked well. It hasn't changed our thoughts about the Morton ' s brand, I just don't care to return to THIS particular location.

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Every year we partake in Morton's end of summer special, whether it be the Coolinary menu or the End of Summer Finale. This year we invited some friends to join us. Angel greeted us with a smile and offered cocktails or wine. When we asked if either the Coolinary or Summer Finale menus were available he advised he have to bring us one...which he did...one, for the entire table. We made our selections and it took quite a while for him to return to take our order. We were made to feel "cheap" by ordering off of the Summer Finale menu which was advertised to us via the emails we get from Morton's. If you don't want patrons to order these specials you should not promote and offer them. Fortunately the food was excellent as always.

    We went for my wife's birthday. A photo was taken of us which was a very nice extra touch. It's expensive so we wouldn't dine there regularly but it's very nice for a special occasion. Also, many of the side items are for at least two people, so if only one wants a baked potato half would be wasted.

    I visit Pure Food and Wine almost every trip to NY. It is a raw, vegan restaurant and the preparation of the food is amazing. It is unlike any restaurant I know. Great care is taken to turn fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices into something that words can't describe. The deserts, including the ice cream like deserts that, of course, have no diary, are amazing.

    Mortons New Orleans French Quarters, being a huge Morton's fan of Beverly Hills and Burbank locations. I loved the new creme decor of this location, I loved the viewable wine room as you exit the elevator and greeted by the host. The ambiance was spectacular. The host, bartender and WAITRESS#1 service were suburb. Cajun Rib-Eye steak is elite in its field and never fails. Nothing can compare. The steak held upto it's taste even though I've always understood the Cajun Rib-Eye was marinated 60 hours but this location said 48. So every chew wasn't the same Cajun burst of flavor. But anywho my steak was still delish. My saute garlic spinach was very salty but our waitress handled that. The manager never greeted me before or during dinner. B-

    Being local, we typically go to Ruth's Chris. This time we decided to give Morton's a try. We experienced long waits between courses and steaks which generally were not cooked to the level we wanted. Of the six steaks, three were overcooked and one was considerably undercooked (asked for medium and received it quite rare). We dealt with the over cooked because of time, but the undercooked steak was sent back and was better the second time around. Waiter was good, but table attention was a bit lacking (water and bread attention in particular). For the price, I thought it should have been a better.
