    Everything was outstanding, waiters, food, etc., except for the noise level. We couldn't even carry on a conversation with the other 2 people at our table without almost yelling. Forget having a romantic dinner here. For what you pay, you should at least be able to enjoy the people with you.

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The restaurant was extremely noisy - think sports bar during some championship game -which was a bit much for a white tablecloth restaurant and a romantic anniversary celebration. Next despite being early on a Saturday night they did not have the Porterhouse Steak for two that we ordered. Then adding insult to injury when the steaks we were able to get came out they were luke warm and the plates were cold (Outback does significantly better at a much lower price point - maybe even quieter). After flagging down our waiter which was no easy matter this was promptly remedied, but one could ask why one should have to seek remedies when the caliber of restaurant that Morton's aspires to be should be getting it right the first time. Service was fair as we had to ask a couple of times to get some limes to go with the sparkling water we ordered - after flagging down a bus boy we finally got some. Then to pay our bill we had to get another server to take the check as our waiter was MIA. He did bring the folder back to us and did acknowledge (unsolicited) that some things were less than perfect. At much lesser restaurants I've had managers come by to apologize. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    Our server was polite, informative, quick, and present without looming. The food on the other hand was just, "good". We had an appetizer, similar to one we had at the Capital Grille, prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella. It was far better at the Capital Grille. My wife ordered a ribeye. I ordered the bone-in ribeye. We have both had far better for far less money elsewhere. The cut was clearly a good one. But the flavor was just ordinary, and the price for what we got was so far outside of reason that it was almost upsetting. I paid 50+ dollars for my 22oz steak. I expected it to be fantastic, and it was less tasty than the New York strips I cook on my grill every week. The carrot cake was fantastic, but at $13+ dollars it really needed to be.

    I chose Mortons to celebrate my date's Birthday. When I made the reservation I let them know it was Kathy 's special day. When we arrived the host wished her a HBD using her name, as did the waitress. We were presented with menus that had HBD Kathy printed on them! My date was touched. The menus were collected and returned at the end of the meal rolled up like a scroll so they would not get damaged in her purse. Of course there was the complimentary Birthday dessert at the end of the meal. The food was excellent, served in a timely manner, hot and cooked just as we had ordered. My date was impressed, and so was I. Would highly recommend Mortons for your next special occasion!

    Thank you for making my wife's birthday dinner very special. She especially loved it when the young man (who seated) us offered to take our picture for the special occasion. The picture he took came out beautiful, needless to say, the picture was a pleasant surprise for her, it was a thoughtful bonus on the part of Morton's. The dinner in it's entirety was scrumptious. The filet mignon was a perfect cut of meat cooked to perfection (melt in our mouth). The grilled asparagus drizzled with balsamic glaze was tasty and my wife's most favorite part of the dinner (the part she had been anxiously) anticipating for...............the chocolate molten cake, to her that is purely divine and would not share it with me. It was also a nice surprise to know that the chocolate molten cake was compliments of Morton's.

    The food was average at best, and when paying over $300 for a meal for two, it becomes less than average. We each had escargot; it was gritty and not very flavorful. The "special" cut of steak my husband ordered was on the tough side, not super tasteful, as one would expect from Morton's, and certainly not what the price commands. I placed an early order for my CHOCOLATE souffle because it takes 30 minutes to prepare....hype. If it had been delicious I would have been happy to wait any amount of time, but it arrived and immediately I was disappointed. It was a basic plain (don't know what flavor, didn't seem to have a flavor) with some chocolate shavings on top!! Very disappointing! I got the small (small ramekin) for $12!! The only flavor came when the chocolate shavings melted. Big disappointment. The only really good thing were the mushrooms I ordered as a side. Unfortunately the waiter never brought my leftover mushrooms back to the table, for me to take home. Our bill did include a $68 bottle of wine. I understand making a profit, but we saw the same bottle, in a liquor store, for $19, and I'm sure that's not what Morton's paid for it. Don't go, just not worth it, the food was average at best, and I'm being generous.

    I had a very unfortunate experience with Mortons in Reston. I made a reservation through Open Table and I called the restaurant 5 minutes before I arrived stating that we would be just a few minutes early. Mortons made a note that we were a no-show and I received an email from Open Table stating that we did not honor the reservation and the amount of time and energy it took to fix this was absurd. Given their reputation Mortons should be much more customer friendly and not make mistakes like that.

    Mortons always has great steaks and a full menu of other dishes with excellent pairings--great for lunch or dinner and when the weather cooperates, and I've held quite a few business meetings out on their patio with a good cigar. Its really the service and attention to the customer that sets this restauarant above the rest of Reston's dining. I've had most of their steaks and really enjoy the new manhattan steak right now. If you go, don't hesitate to have Mardy (their sommelier) stop by the table. He always asks what the table is having, in the mood for, and any likes/dislikes--he's extremely good at what he does. Highly recommended.

    We have been dining at Morton's, Reston for many years. The food is always excellent. Since the renovations it is impossible to have a quiet dinner. The bar has been opened to the dining room up so the noise level is really loud, so now they play LOUD music to try and cover it up! It only makes it worse. Even when we moved far away from the bar the noise is bad. NO MORE QUIET ELEGANT DINING.

    Arrived at our reservation time and checked in- immediately was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion- As it was our 8th wedding anniversary- we said yes and the hostess made us personalized menus for the table. We shared a bottle of wine and got terrific salads- and welcomed our steaks which were cooked perfectly- the side dishes were a good compliment (sour cream mashed and spinach and mushrooms.) We finished the meal with the chocolate lava cake- which the restaurant gave us for free. All and all it was a terrific night out!

    This visit to this Morton's was not quite right. Four filets cooked incorrectly. Service slow in a nearly empty restaurant and when the one steak we sent back finally made it to the table 15 minutes later, the other three were cold. The manager was the one who brought the filet back. And had to be reminded about that. Overall, disappointing. Especially for a $50 per person steak.

    We ate at 8:30 pm on a Sunday, so the restaurant crowd was winding down. We were one of three tables occupied for most of our supper and the last to leave. That is why it was quiet. We’ve been there at more crowded times, and it was much more lively. The food was as great as always: good steaks, good wine, good sides, and a fabulous desert to share! Even other times when it was crowded, the wait staff has always been attentive.

    I love the relaxed feel of the place. The server was able to spend time at each table- getting to know the guests and make them feel welcome. The steaks came out PERFECT, cooked exactly as we requested and incredibly juicy. They change up their wines throughout the year, so the Moscato we had fallen in love with last year was replaced. But we found a new favorite with their new Riesling.

    We very much enjoyed the food at Morton's in Reston, VA on 9/15/14. Although, this is the second time I have been there with my husband on a Friday night for a romantic dinner and we were seated next to a family with 2 small boys (approx ages 8, 10) and a small baby. I'm not sure when Morton's became a "kid Friendly" resturant, but when I think of Morton's, I don't think of it being a place where families would be bringing in kids to dine such as an Olive Garden or Ruby Tuesdays. We had the waiter move us to a more private area, just to have more families arrive with more small children. I am disappointed that this has become the ambiance on Friday nights. Again, the food was outstanding and no complaints there!

    I couldnt have been happier. I made an online reservation, they called to confirm and ask if there was a special occassion. I told them it was my 30th Birthday. I was only expecting my reservation to be 3 people but my family told me an hour before that 2 more people where in attendance. I quickly called and added 2 more to my reservation. It was no problem. Every time I called, I recieved many birthday wishes. LOVED THE VALET PARKING. We got to our table and I was floored that they printed up our Special menus with "HAppy Birthday Kelly" on them. They also took a group picture and printed as many copies as we wanted. The waiter was so knowledgable and very happy to answer any questions we had. Even my 7yr old Niece was was happy
