    Arrived shortly after opening so it was pretty quiet. Every staff member greeted us with a welcome and "Happy Anniversary." The table was decorated to celebrate the occasion and one of the staff took our picture to commemorate the night. Our waiter was very pleasant, prompt and professional the entire night. While going over the menu trying to decide what we were going to order, my son discovered that the menu had been altered with our names on it and a congratulatory "Happy 24th Wedding Anniversary". The dinner and dessert was excellent and the only thing that I can say was displeasing was the Caesar salad had anchovies in the dressing. You have to remember you are paying the experience. If you worry about $$$$ you won't enjoy it.

    This restaurant is definitely as fancy as it gets. For that special occasion, no other restaurant can provide such a lovely romantic ambience. I love the decorations, service, food, everything about it! When family comes out of town, Morton's steakhouse is definitely one of the first options for dinner!

    We went to Morton's to celebrate and had a lovely meal and great wine. The caesar salad and Morton's salad were very tasty although a little to heavy on the dressing on my Morton's salad. I had the sampler - shrimp, scallop wrapped in bacon, oyster rockefeller, and crabcake (all tasty and baked perfectly). My date had the ribeye that was cooked correctly but not as tender as their ribeyes normally are. The service was great. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our meals.

    Absolutely phenomenal food and service. Unfortunately, the price tag is that of a New York City steakhouse. For the price, I'll take two dinners at Ruth's Chris before one at Morton's. And that is no slight to a single other aspect of the place. Expect high end food and well trained staff. But don't expect to walk away feeling that it was that much incrementally better for the price than your typical chain steakhouse (i.e. The Palm, Flemmings, Ruth's Chris, Capital Grill, etc.).

    I have always been told that Morton's is a premium fine-dining establishment, and that the experience, service, and quality of food was well worth the price. Perhaps I am a philistine, because I feel that I have gotten better steak and better service elsewhere for a fraction of the cost. In Morton's defense, I will say that the valet service was prompt, the hostess was very welcoming and friendly (and gave us a personalized birthday menu for my fiance). I loved the lambic I ordered, and the bacon brussel sprouts that we chose was also quite good. Good points aside, I did not feel like I was in capable hands when it came to the service, and the steak was very disappointing, as well as the lamb chops. High price for Medium quality.

    We went to celebrate our 31st Anniversary. We were greeted warmly at the door and were seated at a booth as I had requested on the on-line reservation. Our table was decorated and the menu had our names on it and Happy Anniversary. Eric was our waiter and a wonderful one at that! The Hostess came around and took our picture after we had ordered drinks, and presented it to us in a small paper frame to take home. We both got the center cut filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly and very tender. Key Lime pie for dessert was a great way to end our evening at Morton's.

    This was our small little family celebration evening...my birthday and my daughters first week in 4th grade....She had her yearly doctors appointment at VCU medical center and had to have blood drawn, 7 vials. And all she could talk about was going to Mortons after. It is one of her favorite places in the world as she puts it. She adores Sean the bartender and loves hugging everyone. Her favorite steak ever and she does not hesitate telling me that is even better then Mommy's. And well....the chocolate souffle is something she dreams about. Christmas eve is her next Mortons evening as she puts it. Thanks again guys....

    For the class of this restaurant, I expected much more. For the most part, the food was good, but my steak was not. I ordered the bone in Ribeye. It was full of gristle, and the flavor was not as advertised. I have cooked a better steak myself. The service was just alright. Several things were just forgotten, and had to be asked for a second time. We still tipped the standard percentage, which was a very excessive dollar amount for the service. Our server was personable and knowledge, just not attentive. At one hundred dollars per person, I expected so much more.

    Morton's went above and beyond to make our evening special. They had printed a special menu with his name and Happy Birthday on it . They also took pictures of us with our friends and gave them to us when we departed. All of the staff was on point and manager visited the table several times during the evening.

    The host and our waitress were very awkward and nervous. The waitress was not very knowledgeable about the specials. We placed our order and then a few minutes later the waitress came back and told us that they were out of two of the things we ordered, one an appetizer and the second a steak. We ordered their signature entree's, two fillet mignons and a NY strip steak. They were out of the large fillet mignons and had to go with a smaller one. The steaks were good, not great, under seasoned, and overpriced for how they tasted. The side of creamed spinach was disappointing, more cream and nutmeg than spinach. I have been to this restaurant several times and this was a big disappointment.

    The food is, of course exceptional and consistent. But it is the staff that makes this place one of the finest restaurants in Richmond. From the ease of changing reservations when my friends or business compatriots are running late, to the friendly and welcoming attention to detail that you find from the valet parker out front to the hostess, manager and wait staff. Even the bussers remember me and every little detail from the type of cocktail I prefer to how I like my oysters. They are all fabulous!! We all know that Mortons is a classic in good food and it continues to be even with the sale of the company a couple of years ago, and after they have worked out a few kinks. But Richmond is the BEST in the chain by far. Thanks guys!! Its home

    Morton's Richmond Virginia was an ok experience. The food was decent, but not great in part because it was not hot when it was served (kind of luke-warm). The presentation was nice. The staff was very friendly, but the service was not timely. There were only a few parties in the restaurant and yet it took a long time for us to get our dessert. We were warned that it might take several minutes, but we had to wait about 20-25 minutes. The size of the chocolate molten cake was surprisingly small. And then the time needed to get my credit card receipt to sign also took another 10 minutes or so. The food was decent, but I have had better at other Morton's and definitely at other Ruth Chris restaurants.

    I took my fiancee there to celebrate our 3rd anniversary, and it was amazing. I added a note to our online reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary...and while we did get the standard free dessert, it was the other stuff that made the night memorable. The server greeted and congratulated us by name (Mr. And Mrs.)...our menu had our name and occasion printed on it...the hostess took our picture and came back a few minutes later with a hard copy in a Morton's picture holder (think the little holders they put roller coaster pictures in). As for the food, For the discerning Richmond-based steak-coniseur, Morton's is the way to go, easily outpacing the other steakhouse standards in Richmond (Ruth's Chris, Buckheads, etc.).

    I wanted to do something special for my boyfriend's birthday so I booked us dinner reservations at Morton's since we were staying nearby and neither of us had ever eaten there. The staff was incredible and the extra touches they did to show their appreciation for us choosing to spend our birthday dinner with them made our night. In addition to the great staff the food was amazing!! One of our best dinners. Definitely recommend making this Morton's a top place for your next special occasion.

    Morton's has always been one of my favorite places for dining. This was my first time at the Richmond location. The experience was not disappointing. The waiter recommended the Cajun Ribeye (delicious) for my guest and I enjoyed the 8 oz Filet Mignon (well prepared to order at every location).Morton's Champagne Cocktail is a tasty beverage choice (especially liked the Cinnamon Sugar rim). The noise level was high but not unbearable. Overall, Morton's provides a notably pleasant dining experience from the time you are shown to your table (never more than 2-3 minutes even when the place is crowded) until the time you receive your bill (expect a $$$$ moment).

    I cannot remember the last time I had a meal this sumptuous. I deliberately didn't order a salad so that I would not be too full to REALLY enjoy my entre which was the sea bass. I will remember this meal for many years to come. And, I topped it all off with the Grand Marnier soufflé - that would have been worth the trip all by itself but a wonderful way to end this repast!

    This was a birthday celebration and Morton's made us feel special from the bling on the table to the personal greeting printed on the top of the menu. We splurged with cocktails, a bottle of wine, appetizers, salads, steak filets (oscar & bourbon sauce) and desert (complementary chocolate lava cake). Wow -- everything was so well done. Morton's food and service is excellent and you pay for it. That is why for us it will always be a special occassion restaurant but well worth it to celebrate a special occassion by making us feel special. Well done and highly recommended!

    Morton's puts just the right touch on a special occasion, from customizing our menus to a free, framed snapshot of the 2 of us, to decorating the table- we could not have asked for better. We never lacked for service when we needed it, and for the most part, the waiter was not hovering over us, either. It seems they thought to answer any question before we asked it. The Cajun ribeye was phenominal; the filet was so much a pleasure to chew it made your teeth feel happy! The final touch- the free sundae- was so gigantic I thought we'd never get to the bottom. The only thing I could have done without was the sales pitch at the end, for Landry's Select Club.

    You get the feeling you're in a restaurant that was once great. However at this time I really feel it is way overpriced for the quality of the food. Not creative, standard fare, uninteresting wine list. For the money it should have been much more creative and higher quality of food. I will not return do not recommend it.
