    Overall had a decent experience. Would have preferred better seating as we were sat near the restrooms/kitchen entry. However, our server was nice and knowledgeable about the menu. One disappointment was after dinning we sat in the bar area to have a cocktail on the way out and I ordered an Old Fashion, which should not be very difficult for any bartender. I was given what appeared to be whiskey with watered down ice cubes which was definitely not expected. I am hoping that the gentlemen pouring the drinks was maybe filling in for the actual bartender because I am sure I am not the first person to order a top-shelf beverage at Morton's.

    love Morton's... its our special place to enjoy great dinners, but we don't visit as much as we'd like, so when they put out specials like the $40 one that just ended that was reason enough to go.

    We've been frequent guests at Mortons but started to notice the quality diminishing several months ago. This time we had an ample reservation made, for a big anniversary celebration. We get to our seats to find they've sat us next to the kitchen. It was so loud we couldn't hear each other, and the door to and from the kitchen was constantly swinging back and forth. Took 20 mins to get our drinks only to finally have them come and be told that the 'specialty' that one of our guests ordered as not available. So another 20 mins to get her an alternative. Waitress was disinterested and rarely around. We brought 2 bottle of of wine which she corked but NEVER served. Despite complaining TWICE to the manager nothing was done.

    It was our 1st yr anniv. and I wanted to take my girlfriend to a place where she would feel special, love the food, like the environment. They put Happy Anniversary decorations on the table, had our own special menu that said Happy 1st yr Anniv. across the top of the menu, we got a complimentary desert, they came by, took our picture, then gave us the picture in a frame that said Happ 1st yr anniv., and had an average of 4-5 people always stopping by, checking up on us, making sure we had everything we wanted. She loved it all, we had a great time and she now wants to come back for every anniv. because now she is calling it our place which I'm fine with because its a great place.

    We went for the special as affordable. We also super enjoy the food, except this time the green beans were underdone and underflavored. We do wish there was more light to see menus, etc. We were seated more to the back and so couldn't hear the music and wished we had a flashlight to see menu and bill. Great restaurant but too dim. Servers are good but sometimes a little too interruptive when you just want to sit and ruminate a little. We will go back because the food is always great. We went this time as his and my birthdays were days we could not attend. The Key Lime Pie as always scrumptious!

    Morton was my go-to place for special occasion in the past several years. However, the steaks was consistently not very good in the past 2-3 times we went there. Although the ambiance is nice and the service is very good, I don't know if I want to spend $300 dinner for a not so satisfying experience anymore.

    We were a party of 8 for an 45th anniversary celebration. Our waiter was very cautious and helpful with our order. We ordered several appetizers and one order of prosciutto wrapped mozzarella had a problem and needed to be remade. Dinner service went well although you did get the feeling they were under-staffed that night. The main complaint was the food. Two of the people complained that their food was cold. My wife ordered a Morton's Salad and the lettuce was wilted and not crisp at all. My filet and one other that I know of were not prepared as requested. I asked for medium and it came closer to rare. A nice evening was had by all but the food left something to be desired. Especially at Morton"s prices.

    The steak and seafood dinners we had were outstanding, but our side vegetable dish was not cooked very well and served less than warm. I was also disappointed that our server never told us about a special that we were informed about via an email from Morton's until we asked about it. So as that you don't get the wrong impression this is the first time we came away from dinner feeling a bit disappointed as all the other times we have eaten there we were very satisfied

    Our server was hard to track down - he opened a very nice bottle of wind that we brought in, then never touched it after that, never poured a drop of it. Was nowhere to be found after our meals arrived, had to ask another server to find him as one of our sides did not come with the meal. I only gave it a "Fair" rating because the food was good.

    I went for my anniversary. When I got to the table confetti was sprinkled across it, and menus with our names were laid at our settings. The hostess even took our picture and gave us a matted copy :-) I had the crabcakes which were to die for and he had steak(dont remeber which one), but his face said it was delicious. Overall great experience for a casual and romatic celebration.

    Very disappointed with the food. Lacking flavor and improper cooking (overdone steaks)...we were with special guests, so we held off on commenting and sending food back. I had bone in ribeye which was overcooked and bland, I personally cook a better, more flavorful at home any given night. The spinach was terrible. The $600 tab was way too high for such a meal and I truly wish we'd have gone to Alexanders instead of Mortons.

    My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Morton's and they did a great job catering to our needs. When we made our reservation, we stated it was for our anniversary and they had a special table waiting for us. There was anniversary motif on the table. We received a free anniversary dinner photo and a free desert. This was unexpected and very classy of Morton's. The steak and crab cakes were phenomenal. We will definitely return.

My porter house and my sons filet mignon were ordered medium well and they were done just right. And since it was my sons birthday we got a nice complementary photograph.

    We arrived to see our table decorated with b'day decorations and a menu with my name on it.. Dinner was delicious. We had a cocktail so did not have wine. The cocktails were so good. The wait staff were impeccable in their service. We have not had that kind of service since visiting Chicago where waiting is a profession not just a job. Our dining lasted well over 2 hours and our car was waiting for us when we left. They paid such attention to every detail. Overall a wonderful evening.

    Sitting at table 55 - my usual table. We're greeted and seated promptly for our 7:15pm dinner Sunday nite. Dinning room was 60% full. Katheryn was our server - very friendly, proper and attentive. Appetizer - baked escargot and chilled seafood platter. Two glasses of Riesling. Main course - center cut rib eye steak and shrimp scampi capellini. Both cooked as we expected. We did not have dessert because we're just too full. We're happy with our meal and service. During our dinner, fire alarm went off and it took the building manager 10 min to turn it off. Katheryn was concerned for the interruption. A nice personal touch. Morton is not Alexander (which we go very often) since we live in Cupertino. I will recommned Morton to others :)

    I was very pleased with the restaurants food and service. I was disappointed when I used this service to reserve a table for a special night out with my 92 year old grandmother, all to find out that they didn’t have our reservations in the system when we arrived. Thank goodness we were there early for a 5:30 reservation as no customers were present to hear the 20 questions I received to ensure I truly did make the reservations for their restaurant, that date, that time, under that name, and of course I was asked if I reserved a table at the San Francisco location. I was truly embarrassed as my grandmother and I stood there not knowing if we would be seated or eating at that establishment. Next time I will reserve a table by phone.

    We went for our wedding anniversary - looking for a nice quiet evening without the kids - we were greeted kindly by our hostess and shown to our booth (as requested in my reservation), as we sat down, sprinkled on the smartly pressed tablecloth were "Happy Anniversary" confetti - a nice touch. Personalized menus with our names were presented as were the current specials. My wife ordered the tuna tacos and I the center cut ribeye. While the purist would have ordered "bone in", I wasn't in the mood to work too hard this night. The ribeye was outstanding - broiled to order - I had now doubt it would arrive as order and i wasn't disappointed! I'd tell you about the tuna tacos, but who orders tacos at a steak house. My wife. Love Mortons!

    The minute my wife and i entered the door, we felt like we were in a special place. the maitre d greeted us with a big smile and sat us at the perfect booth. The pre-dinner cocktails were yummy. I had a gin martini and my wife had the champagne cocktail. Then teh bread was super soft and warm with soft butter to accompany. we split the special bone in filet and had broccolini on the side with twice baked au gratin potatoes after the beefsteak and onion salad. After, we had a souffle for the first time. Wow. light and airy and not too sweet. We will be back when i get my next $50 check from Open Table.

    Morton's in San Jose is a high end steakhouse that delivers. My NY steak was cooked to perfection as was my wife's double cut lamb chops. Waiter was very attentive and efficient. We celebrated an anniversary and the restaurant provided a specially written menu along with a picture and dessert. Just a few reasons we were made to feel special while at the restaurant.
