    The title says it all. Our server and the Manager treated us like we were really celebrating big time and we were. They gave us fabulous cheesecake to take home and sure enough we dug into that cheesecake like there was no tomorrow. Our steaks were the best we ever had and in 50 years of marriage we had our share of steak but not the right quality til we came to Morton's Thank You for making our dining experience a memory we will remember for a long time.

    The food was excellent, the wine was fantastic, the service was sub-par. Our server was really disappointing. He had problems with knowledge of the menu, and was somewhat argumentative about our appetizer request. Desert came out incorrect as well. It was very disappointing for $350.

    When visiting Chicago we always go to Morton's and this time something was different. the evening was great, the service was fabulous, the sides were amazing, but the steaks this time were different. there were 6 6 of us all ordering steak, out of the 6 steaks 4 of them were not that good, 1 overcooked and three had a liver tasted to them. We had a great time in spite of the steaks but on our next visit we may try somewhere else.

    After laundry's bought morton's, seems the food went down, we had dinner there saturday after a long absence. Food had improved and our server was a doll, however, they charged us for 6 drinks and we only had 4 took 3 attempts before they straightened it out…She kept going to her manager and came back saying that the charge was correct…Finally they saw we only had 4 drinks..Not worth the stress of the evening…We will not go back ..

    Morton's State Street location is tired, dark and dreary and should take a page out of nearby Gibson's which has a lively scene nightly. Morton's was almost empty, the maitre d' unwelcoming and bored, and the Sinatra vintage music too loud. Only 4 other tables were occupied in this vast, dimly-lit room, and the bar also deserted. Food was fantastic, however. Do split the huge portions. We had a tomato, onion and blue- cheese salad, NY strip, hash browns and asparagras with hollandaise, all outstanding and delicious. We would return but ONLY for the food.

    Our group often debates about the best steakhouse in Chicago. We struggle to find "the best" in a city that is known for their steaks. Morton's comes out on top across the board in terms of food quality, price, service and consistency. The scene is a traditional, basement level restaurant with all the trappings of dark wood and dim lighting...a throw back to the 60s and 70s. It was quite after the holiday weekend but it can be quite loud at other times. All the sides and desserts are the big, over the top kind where one serving is enough for a table. Extensive wine selection that is better than other major steak houses (with some bottles only 2-3 times the retail price). Definitely will return!

    We go to Morton's each time we are in Chicago just for the steak! It was fabulous. The service was great --the waiter Pierre knew exactly when to bring dishes so to make the meal seamless. The only flaw --and a small one --was the special watermelon salad had no watermelon! But by the time Pierre returned to the table, husband had eaten it all anyway because it was so good! We also had the chocolate souffle -perfect ending to a perfect meal! Thank you!!

    The service s impeccable at this, the original location of Morton's Steak house. Old fashioned full bar, no fancy mixology needed here, adds to the experience of the flavorful steaks and other dishes. I had the Shrimp Scampi Capellini, and my friends had huge New York Strip and the Filet. We shared the creamy and delightful sour cream mashed potatoes. No room for dessert. The place was hopping by the time we left (8pm-ish) with lots of families, business people and coules enjoying their food as much as we did. I took my friends because I had one of THE best steaks I've ever had in the city of Chicago there with my husband once. My girlfriends are steak eaters too so knew they would love it.

    Had a 10-pm reservation after a show on a Saturday night. When we walked in we were not greeted in a happy fashion. I had to ask if we were at Morton's since the host had a look of horror that we walked in at 10pm. Another couple behind us had to do the same thing. Waiter never introduced himself at the start. You would think at the viagra triangle this place would be busting at the seams but it was quiet it was weird. Food was so-so. Steaks were switched and the waiter insisted that we had the correct steaks. (not).

    A great night, from being greeted with "happy anniversary" from reception, being seated, server, and Pierre our waiter. Menu made specifically with our name on it, picture, and special lava desert was outstanding! Recommend to anyone particularly on an special occasion. This was our first time at Morton's in Chicago [original place], and would definitely return. Steak was outstanding, presentation of the appetizer was cool [Shrimp Cocktail on ice was special]; we felt like we were expected to be there and very welcome. Pierre's service was outstanding!

    I have been to Morton's a few times in California, and wanted to try the original. The food was excellent, the wine selection was what you would expect from a five star restaurant. The atmosphere was a little loud but not out of hand. My wife had white pants on and we were surprised when the waiter placed a black napkin on her lap. Overall the best meal we had in chicago.

    Morton's Chicago was an excellent place to celebrate a romantic birthday dinner. We were given a friendly welcome and seated promptly at our reservation time at a table we requested. Throughout the night, service was extremely attentive and impeccable. The service staff was quite knowledgeable and accommodating. The meal was fantastic with freshly prepared salads, perfectly cooked filets, delicious sides, and an excellent birthday dessert. Never once did we feel rushed during our meal and the atmosphere was just right for a quiet evening dinner. Morton's is a reliable go-to for special occasions.

    We have been to Morton's a number of times but this visit was a disappointment. Unfortunately they didn't have enough waiting on staff which mean we were left pouring our own wine and waiting for service. Even worse when a large group arrived they were flooded with service to ensure that the staff did not miss out on their tip. This might be the original Morton's but it is a long way from being a good steak house.

    My wife and I went to Morton's on Saturday at 8:00 and had a great time. We both had Filet Mignon and they were outstanding. Cooked to perfection with more flavor than I usually expect with a filet. We started with the Oysters Rockefeller. They were good but only came with 4 oysters for $18 so I'd skip those next time. We also had the sauteed broccolini and twice baked potatoes that were both great. We finished with a pie of key lime pie and you could have rolled us out the door. Overall, the best part of the dinner was the steak and the service. We had two waiters coming to our table regularly and they were very helpful. I've recently eaten at Chicago Cut and Gene & Georgetti and I preferred my steak at Morton's.

    In my reservation, I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday and said anything special they could do would be appreciated. They welcomed him with a "happy birthday," took a commemorative photo, and brought a complimentary dessert. They were really nice touches that helped make the evening. I was extremely impressed with the service - so cordial without being overbearing. And of course, the steak (and sides) were delicious.
