Diner Reviews
  • "Morton's is one of those places that we love to go to for a great meal on a special occasion. Usually, they have dining deals on the website, so you can save a little money that way. Great salads, beef, and deserts. Very helpful wait staff. Highly recommended."

  • "Me and my wife celebrate birthdays 1 week apart. We elected to celebrate out birthdays with a dinner at Morton's. The entire evening was perfect. From the time you check in till the time you leave they address you by name! A great touch that makes you feel part of the family. The food was it's usual Morton's perfect and the service was over the top. From our head waiter Rocky to the Assist. Manager we couldn't have been treated better. Even our menus were personalized with "happy Birthday" and our names printed on them. Yeah I know a bit gimmicky but we thought it was a nice surprise and a great touch. Of course as at any Morton's the price is not cheap but here you get what you pay for in every way."

  • "Palm Springs and the surrounding desert communities offer many choices for steak lovers. There is Ruth's Chris, Mastro's, Flemings. All offer similar menus. Price-wise, all are pretty equal...very expensive. I have had excellent experiences at the Ruth's Chris in Palm Desert, having eaten there many times, but I wanted to try Morton's since I had never eaten there. The filet I had was good but not great and very expensive. At the end of the meal we ordered dessert, a molten chocolate cake, and were told it would be about 15 minutes. 40 minutes later, still no cake. What bothered me the most was that our waiter had apparently forgotten either us or putting in the order for the cake. He never checked on us or the status of our order."

  • "Overall the food was good. We ordered a side of asparaus and we were disappointed. It was woody and tough. However without a doubt my salad wedge was the best I have ever had a restaurant. Cocktails were good and well mixed."

  • "Morton's Palm Desert was fantastic, as always. Josh the manager there is awesome. Always fun to visit with and is great help with the wine. Always look forward to seeing him and having a great steak."

  • "We enjoyed Morton's very much and if you call in for reservation they will have the menu printed with your name. Food was excellent and we had the seafood cold and snails plus there steak and cheese potatoes. Can't wait to go there again. Just to add that there Happy Hours are wonderful."

  • "While I don't dine at Morton's alot, I always look forward to coming here when I do. The food, as always, was excellent. I ordered a magnificent blue cheese wedge salad, a perfectly cooked filet mignon, and a baked potato. When it comes to steak, Morton's truly is one of the best. The service, while pleasant, wasn't as sharp as it has been during other visits. Even though the restaurant wasn't crowded, the waiter kept disappearing and waited longer than was necessary to take our order. He forgot our request for steak sauce entirely and we had to ask another waiter to get it, and was not as attentive as the waitstaff has been in past visits. This is a little surprising and disappointing. After all, this is Mortons, not Sizzler."

  • "The host was plesent, the first waiter was great but the second waiter that ended up taking over was very poor did not give us a welcome feeling we had to keep asking about the specials, he seem very bothered everytime we asked a questions and then we both asked for our steaks to be medem and they w ned well ."

  • "We enjoyed our evening at Mortons! The filets were delicious, crab cakes full of crab and very tasty. Delcious scallops wrapped in bacon and a horseradish chutney! Wedge salad is huge and so good. Get the mac and cheese as a side, the brocollini was very nice as well. Flavio was our server, just the right mix of fun and professionalism. He made our dinner so enjoyable! The chocolate souffle is amazing!!"

  • "This is the first time i have dined here since the takeover by Landrys. Things that are now missing: all of the previous friendly experienced waitstaff; the rolling display cart of food offerings; the sommelier; busboys. It is just another fast food operation. Customers wearing baseball caps in the dining room at 8pm on a saturday night say it all. I really need to get dressed up to blend in."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Morton's. This was our second visit to Morton's and we were not disappointed. My husband's steak was done just right and I had the lobster and enjoyed every bite. We will be back when we can."

  • "My wife and I have dined on several occasions not only at the Palm Desert locations but others as well. On this particular visit the service was good, we even joined the loyalty club as suggested by our server, Flavio. However, this time our food arrived much later than we expected and the restaurant was not really busy, there were more open tables than the ones that were occupied. The issue we certainly did not expect at Morton's was children crying loudly. We understand that there's very little Morton's can do about this but for a nice evening out it felt more like we were at Denny's or Applebee's, the ambiance was very disappointing."

  • "Excellent food, excellent service and exceeded our expectations! Appreciated the Waitress recommendations - especially the "Brussels sprouts side" - they are soooo good, of course the Filet Mignon as well! Be sure and have the Raymond Primal Cut blend of their own special red wine) and save some to have with your double chocolate mousse!"

  • "Morton's is an outstanding dining experience. Their service makes each guest feel special and the servers are genuine and are present but not overwhelming or hovering. The manager dropped by as did other management to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The food is well prepared. They do know their steaks and they are delicious. My guest had lobster which was also a delight. Visits to Morton's are always a good time."

  • "Took our daughter and friends to Morton's to celebrate her 17th birthday. We had a great time. The reservation went just as planned, and when we were handed our menus, there was our daughter's name and a Happy Birthday message on each of our menus. She was quite impressed (which is not easy with a 17 year-old :-} ) They food was better than delicious. It is of a quality that you would expect for the price. They accommodated my daughter's requests for "sauce on the side" to fit perfectly with her dietary restrictions. I had an amazing fruity martini. Our waiter was the best ever...Oscar! All-in-all we had a wonderful, memorable birthday dinner at Morton's. Will definitely go back when we're in town again!!"

  • "That evening, my wife and I were celebrating our 37th Wedding Anniversary. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection, and were very tender and tasty. We ordered the creamed corn, as one of our sides, and it was excellent. The wait staff we very professional, and were always there refilling our beverage glasses. A complementary dessert (a chocolate soufflé) was wonderful! I would highly recommend Morton's, in Palm Desert, to anyone who loves steak and wishes to step up to the best."

  • "We always try to use Morton's for our special occasions. We had been using Arnie Morton's in Burbank for years but the last several visits significantly turned us off. We tried Palm Desert and loved it. This was our second visit to this location. GREAT! We even convinced our friends to join Landry's Club too. I am sure we will be back again."

  • "The service was great but I was disappointed in the quality and presentation of my steak. My quests all thought their food was great but I had the $55 Bone-in Ribeye which was overcooked, not the piece of meat it should have been and the bone was not what I have experienced in the pass. I give it a 3/4 on a 10 scale."

  • "This was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend. Last night in town with a very special lady. Had to end it on a perfect note. The seamless booking of my reservation online, being greeted with a smile by our hostess, & the romantic ambience truly set the tone. Our waiter Todd was excellent. He did his best to take our picture. We had a good laugh about his thumb being in it. The steaks we had were as juicy as could be. The food was almost as great as my date looked. With the exception of a guy with an annoying loud laugh 2 tables down, couldn't of asked for a better night. Great food, great service and of course I had great company. Might make a tradition out of coming here whenever we visit the next resort in the desert. Thanx Morton's!"

  • "Honestly, I am amazed. We do eat here often but we eat at a lot of the same places often. We even eat at a family owned restaurant whom happen to be our friends.Here is the reason for my title. Not only does the staff remember what we drink and eat the manager Laurel actually remembers personal things that we have talked about such as my husband not liking blue cheese or me being allergic to watermelon. We walk in one night and she says "I have a surprise for you" and happen to get in a specific wine we like. Rocky, Dan and Todd even the line crew are so welcoming that I would forgo all the other places we eat to just come here once a week. We also had a chance to chat with Josh the GM and he was just as nice and welcoming! Food&service A++"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary here and we were more than happy. They had made up a special menu with our name on them and took our picture and put it in a nice frame stating what we were celebrating. The salads were great the steaks were cooked perfectly and the molten chocolate cake was divine this wasn't our first time here and we will definitely be back."

  • "Everyone was cheerful and tried to make our dining a wonderful experience. Enrique offered to give me a sample of a wine about which I asked. We both loved the lobster cocktail. Our filets were cooked exactly as ordered, and they were not buried in salt like some other steak houses do. If you like souffles, order one - it's delicious. We split a chocolate one. The manager, Dan, came to our table 3 times to ensure we were enjoying our dinner. He really cared. The young lady who took our picture (we were celebrating our anniversary) took a great shot, did it before we had any food or drink so we looked good in the picture, and provided a quality album print."

PUTTING OUR NAMES & OCCASIONS ON OUR PERSONAL MENUS, TAKING PHOTOS AND GIVING US EACH ONE. Since it was my daughters birthday you served us wonderful fruit whip cream and mousse. Still I have a big complaint about my chicken.."
