    My wife and I were there for our 35 anniversary. Morton personel took care of us very nicely with decorations on the table as well as picture at the table to take home. The food was very good and cooked properly per our request. Daniel our waiter took care of all our needs. The only negative was the busboy service, it was a little bit slow. Overall experience was a 4.9 and will be back...

    I've been to a lot of Mortons restaurants. Maybe 10. But this particular dinner, with 3 colleagues, was memorable and different. The steaks were perfect in meat quality, texture and seasoning. Our server was awesome, and the seafood starters and wine were ideal.

    Having dined at Mortons across the country for 20 years, it was always a staple for a solid meal. I'm not sure what changes have occured since they are owned by Landry's, but they are not positive. The live menu cart is gone, wait staff is not trained like they once were and the quality of the food has gone down. Its a shame to see the changes. We won't be going back to Mortons anytime soon.

    SamBurroughs2014
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    If you're going to charge top prices, be sure your service matches it. When you have to resort to flagging down your waiter to order another bottle of wine or to bring the side order that he forgot to deliver, it doesn't make the customer feel good to fork out $$$$$ when the service level is lacking. If I go to Morton's I want to be fully taken care of. Didn't happen this time.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Morton's. Our reservations were promptly honored and we were even given our choice of a booth or table. Naturally,, we chose a booth which provided an expansive view of Morton's dining room and kitchen. Our server, Kristara, was simply marvelous, one of the best and friendliest servers we have ever met. Not at all pushy or overly familiar and frequently checking if everything was ok. It was. Our onion soup, filet and salmon entrees were all perfectly prepared. Robert, the floor captain, also came over to make sure we were happy with everything, we were, and finished our great evening with wonderful after-dinner drinks. It was a really enjoyable dinner and evening. Highly recommended. .

    The food (filet mignon, bacon wrapped scallops, etc.) is excellent, of course; but, I was particularly impressed with the chopped salad. I didn't expect the lettuce, tomato, egg, etc. to be so finely chopped, almost to the point of becoming a slaw. Some of the other ingredients were cut a bit larger (bacon, avocado, chunks of blue cheese). The result is that every forkful has a well-blended, very flavorful base of all the components, and many bites will feature one of those larger ingredients-- an extra crunchy, bacon-y bite, a creamy avocado bite, a sudden burst of blue cheese. It also had a terrific mouthfeel. My husband doesn't typically like salad, but agreed that this one is very good. I love this salad!

    Made reservation several days in advance. We arrived early by 30 minutes and were seated 40 minutes later. Service was good, food excellent, staff stopped by individually throughout the Meal to offer congratulations on 36 years of marriage. Had a wonderful time as always at Mortons. Have eaten at Chicago, New York and other Mortons, always a good meal. Allow plenty of time for European paced meal service.

    We went to Morton's just for dessert. The chocolate souffle was excellent! My friends and family got the Grand Marnier souffle. The Grand Marnier ended up being more bitter than sweet (I remember it being sweeter in the past.). Perhaps a little too much orange rind. My dad got the key lime pie. I didn't taste it, but he said it was good. I definitely will go back for the chocolate souffle - it's the best souffle I've ever had.

    We ordered the short ribs. The potatoes that the short ribs were nestled in were piping hot as well. When I cut in and took a bite I found that the short rib was cold inside, not just cold but out of the ice box cold. My friend found hers to be the same. He took them back and returned with a hot rib that Was delicious.When the bill came our server asked if we has valet parked and when we told him yes (thinking they would comp the nominal fee in exchange for the cold rib) he asked if we wanted him to put on the bill! Hmm no offer of any kind to take care of the parking or possibly the side dish that we ordered as well that was hot when we got our food and cold by the time our second plate came round. A $200 dinner should be exceptional!

    The trio of lamb chops I ordered were cooked to perfection, however, the "silver" had been left on, unfortunately, which made them impossible to cut through. Our server (Danny) immediately brought it to the manager's attention (Adam) and a filet was exchanged swiftly allowing me to still enjoy dinner with my husband. Too bad about the lamb chops, they were really beautiful at 2" thick each. I will try ordering them again! A wonderful dining experience all the way around, from the friendly greeting from Marie (the hostess), to that valet who made arrangements for after hours pick up of our car due to the Elton John concert, to Danny and Adam. Bravo! Well done - we will return and tell others of your top notch food, service and attentiveness!

    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.

    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.
