Morton's The Steakhouse - San Diego
Mothers Day 2013Enjoyed the special Mothers Day hours. Rudy and our server Kevin, and all the folks that backed them up couldn't have provided any better service. The food was outstanding. Always a pleasure to dine at Morton's in San Diego!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome mealMy porterhouse steak was so tender, I did not need a knife5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was amazing.

Sincerely Mr. Aguilar.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my favoriteThis is one of my favorite steakhouses. I always am pleased with the variety. However my meal wasn't as perfect as my husband's. I started with oysters and champagne. My husband had a martini. All was great. Our chopped salads were delicious, but my salad didn't have avocados that were on his. He had the bone-in rib eye, cooked to perfection. My 8 oz. filet was overcooked which they were happy to correct. The molten chocolate cake is always the best! Although I had a couple of things that were not what I expected with my meal, I still will return to Morton's.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Steaks in San DiegoMorton's has the best steaks in San Diego. I almost cried eating their food because it was THAT good. If you're a medium rare steak lover, I would prefer to go medium instead. Mine was a little under cooked, according to my waiter. So they were able to cook it more. Their prime is not baked or sitting under a warmer. I dont know how they cook it, but it's flame broiled and so juicy in the middle. It's so good, I can not describe. A little on the pricey side, but extremely worth it. I also had their flavored Morton's champagne. So good as well. I believe Barry was our waiter and he did an excellent job on service. Will go back and try the happy hour soon! Thanks Mortons!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak, over the top service.I love great food and great service but the service was a little over the top pretentious for me. It would be nice for the server to read the guests' body language and adjust accordingly. Some people like the "formal/pretentious" service and that's why they go to Morton's. Others don't and that's why they don't go to Morton's. I loved my $49 cajun ribeye, totally worth it. However, the over the top service rubs me the wrong way. I think next time I rather sit at the bar.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDonovan's still my top pick.Morton's was nice. I'm a regular at Donovan's La Jolla so I had the Cajun Rib-eye to see how it compares to Donovan's and I have to say I liked it better. It was a bit leaner (which was good) and the Cajun flavor more evident. It was great!
For sides we ordered Hash Browns, Au Gratin potatoes, Asparagus, and Mushrooms and none of them compared to Donovan's in flavor so I was disappointed there.
It was very noisy there. We were there for business and I felt I was not able to hear or be heard due to all the noise coming from the bar and other tables.
So if you are only about the meat Morton's is good but if you are like me and are looking for the overall experience and wanting to get some business done too my pick is still Donovan's.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe very much enjoyed our 26thWe very much enjoyed our 26th wedding anniversary dinner at Morton's.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go often and have neverWe go often and have never been disappointed, what can you say ...

What more can you ask for!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMorton's Steakhouse was aMorton's Steakhouse was a last minute choice - between Truluck's in La Jolla and Flemings and I have to say that I am glad we went with Morton's. The ambience was great, the atmosphere just right for a cozy birthday dinner. Our servers were attentive and knowledgable on both old menu items and the new additions. They gave good pointers and were honest about their personal tastes.
The Bibb Salad and the citrus salad were refreshing and quite delicious. One person had the sampler and she loved it while the rest of the table went with the filet mignon which was succulent, soft and filling. We chose 4 sides to share between 6 of us and the lyonnaise potatoes were out of this world! The cream brulee and lemon souffle did not disappoint either!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrate aGreat place to celebrate a special occassion.

The noise was the real problem, very hard to carry on a conversation without asking to repeat half of what was said.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family loves to celebrateOur family loves to celebrate special occasions at this restaurant. We were seated immediately. Two waiters were waiting on us. The restaurant was not that crowded. Courses were served in proper succession. Food was great! Waiters were friendly and even got our valet parked car on curbside before we stepped out. Overall a great experience.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent seating. ServerExcellent seating. Server and GM were friendly and made us feel welcomed. Not too happy about the group of men sitting next to us speaking loudly and at times would slip a few curse words in front of my children, but a glance of discontent to the group made them tone it down. Overall outstanding.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday BackupWent for my 36th birthday last minute due to a snafu at my favored steakhouse. Very pleased that I chose Morton's as a backup. Fantastic food and service. Custom printed birthday menus which I absolutely was not expecting since I only put "my birthday" on the reservation comments. The porterhouse was supreme. Noise level was high and helped to mask my 3 year old daughter who was dining with us. Right up there with the absolute best steakhouses I've been to.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm from the Inland EmpireI'm from the Inland Empire so I drove down to San Diego to take my best friend out for her birthday. On my drive down there Morton's called me to ask if it was a special occasion and asked how to spell my friends name out correctly which was nice because really no one ever gets her name right "Kirsten" We arrived a little early and we were probably the 2nd ones to arrive so it was very nice and quiet. Our waiter was awesome very attentive to all of our needs and got our drink orders right away. One thing about Morton's is they never rush you and they really strive to let you enjoy your meal and every thing was so delicious. When we got the menu's it said Happy Birthday Kirsten on the top part I thought that was nice.
