    We took my sister and her husband for their 36th anniversary. Our anniversary was also coming in a few months, so we decided to celebrate the two together. The food was great, the server was excellent and the overall experience was so enjoyable. Also there were a few surprises. Complimentary dessert and photo!

    The birthday meal for 5 was very good. The Steak was great, the sides were very good. The mushroom broccoli was not what I expected and I love broccoli Two problems the snails had sand in them and a dinner said the shrimp with stuffed crab-meat was "metallic". So I advise you go to the steakhouse to have steak.

    Third time in a row our steaks were very under-cooked, yet burned on the underside. The lobster lacked flavor. The chopped spinach salad was good, as was the extensive wine list. The staff was more friendly than previous visits, so I believe they have been working on customer service. However, with only 2 cooks on a busy Saturday night, and a server that continually apologized for the delay, they still have a LONG way to go to be playing on the same level as similar restaurants in the area. Management was quick in addressing our disappointment, however, more effort needs to be put into quality control in the kitchen before the food reaches the table.

    Bravo!!! It has been a while since we have eaten here. It used to be a regular spot, but new high end steak houses have opened and Morton's got pushed off. Well, I am here to say, the food and service Saturday night was classic Morton's. Great wait staff, friendly hostess, and the food was off the charts. I am once again a Morton's regular!!

    Our waitress forgot to put in my order for my dessert and coffee, after dinner, She insisted while I was ordering dinner to make my choice for dessert, she said it takes the kitchen 20 minutes to make it, I did as she asked. We sat more than 20 minutes after dinner waiting. With out apologizing she said sometimes the kitchen runs behind, she brought our check and than a cup of coffee, which I did not touch. Unbelievable.

    We have not been to Mortons for a long time and now I remember why-very noisy. It's really hard to enjoy a nice steak dinner when you have to talk that loud to the people at your table. Food was good but not great. Service was pretty good. Mashed cauliflower side dish was pretty good. Steaks were fine. Lobster a bit undercooked. It's a popular place and was quite crowded. Lots of kids too. They did provide a nice dessert for us as we were celebrating my son's engagement. Nice touch.

    I had the Filet and Lobster special and my friend had the Mixed Grill with Filet and shrimp and scallops. We were both disappointed in the filets (6 oz.) which were only an inch thick and chewy and looked like Sizzler steaks. We expected "melt in your mouth" filets. The seafood was good but not great. The sauteed Wild Mushrooms and the Chopped Spinach salad were great and the best part of the meal aside from the lava cake. The service was great but not so great that we would go again anytime soon.

    This was a business luncheon with an important client. Silverware was missing, we had to ask for a fork and teaspoon for coffee for 1 of the guests. The steak for 1 person was ordered medium rare and came back well done!!! It took a long time to get the replacement. One of the desserts was going to take a half hour to prepare so something else was chosen. On a good note, the creme brulee was some of the best I've ever had. I ordered the jumbo shrimp and scallops, only received 2 of each for $29.00. Not acceptable. I would never take an important business client back there. I'm going somewhere else next week.

    I initially made reservations for 3 persons the day before, then the day of, had to change it to 5. They graciously accommodated them. We were 5 minutes late, but I had previously called ahead of time to let them know. When we got there, after waiting to be seated 5-10 minutes, we were informed that the next available table would be for us. It seemed like someone had given it away, since we were not there on time, even though I had called them earlier to let them know. The Maître D was very apologetic and directed us to the bar, were she took care of our tab. After about 30 more minutes, we were finally seated and enjoyed another outstanding Morton's dinner. Even with the unexpected wait, they always knows how to please the customer!

    I was not happy with the experience. I took my friend here for his birthday. We were nicely greeted but when we sat down the menu said "Happy Birthday, Marty". My friend's signature cut prime new york strip steak was undercook. The server brought it back in and when it came back out half of it was overcooked and half was medium. Although the server tried his best to provide good service as well as the manager for the night. The overall experience was unpleasant. I am really disappointed. It was a complete 180 from my experience here back in January.

    I took my husband out for our anniversary to Morton's for the first time. All I can really say is that it was incredible. The service, the food, the ambiance, all worth the cost. This place is pricey, so probably a special occasion sort of place. But if you can afford this place more often then definitey go. I loved it and my husband loved it. Thanks MORTON's Teresa

    If you are debating whether you should patronize this institution, save yourself the anguish--just do it. The superlatives I could use to describe the food, the wine and the service would read like a thesaurus of what it means to have a wonderful steak dinner. Yes the price may be cost prohibitive for a weekly night out, but you definitely get what you pay for.

    Took my wife here for her birthday, wanting to take her somewhere special. The place is nice, but for the price charged, the food was bit underwhelming. To be fair, we both ordered seafood, not steaks, which admittedly is their specialty. However, the seafood is as expensive. My wife ordered the lobster tail, which was good but a bit small for $50.00. I ordered one of the specials that night - prosciutto-wrapped halibut, which was dry. The $12.00 asparagus was limp, the $12.00 broccoli OK. I also recall from visits to other Morton's that the server would bring a tray that showcased the various cuts of meet and seafood. seeing the raw cuts often led to upsells, so I am surprised they didn't do it here.

    This was my first visit to Morton's The Steakhouse, and the experience went above & beyond my expectations. Many friends have told me how fabulous the food is, but what they didn't tell me is how fabulous the restaurant is! It is very beautiful & romantic! Our dinner was before a Yanni concert at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, nearby, and the server asked right away if we had after-dinner plans. He guaranteed we would have plenty of time...and he didn't disappoint. The Maitre d' came to our table twice, to make sure all our needs were met. What a gem of a restaurant!! Service was exceptional...food was superb...perfect evening!! My only disappointment, I hadn't gone sooner to enjoy this stellar establishment!!

    When it's time to get a great steak Mortons delivers. The food and service were/are great, and every time I go I come away satisfied. Only obstacle is the price. $69 for a bone in filet is kinda ridiculous, but $12 for a potatoe is definitely dumb. Which is why Mortons will only be a rare special treat, and not a more frequently visited experience.

    Experience at the restaurant was 5 Star. We had Duke as our server who made excellent recommendations, treated us like we were regulars. We enjoyed the scallops/shrimp with bacon & the tuna tower, both excellent appetizers. I had the warm steak salad for lunch, excellent & generous, the filet mignon was perfectly seasoned and exquisite. My guest enjoyed the Chilean Sea bass special along with sautéed mushrooms, We finished our lunch with a slice of their cheesecake. The ambiance is perfect for a business meeting, classy and impressive yet not stuffy, especially if your fortunate to be served by Duke.
