    I always wanted to go to Morton's and decided to for my birthday. I ordered the Cajun Ribeye with grilled asparagus and baked potato. Everything tasted so good. I am a martini gal, and I decided to try Palm Beach Passion and it was so good that I could sit at the bar and drink it all day long. I can't wait to go back.

  • Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/5/2014
    As a foreign visitor, I was disappointed by 2 things : the waitress did absolutely not take care of me understanding her advice, by speaking a bit slower, and in total, the service was only serving meals, and not taking care of us. I was once at Capitole Grill in Chicago, and we had a very friendly relationship to the waitress, making that I recall it as a very nice experience. And for sure this changes the perception of food.

    This was a Morton's and it didn't disappoint! We had a table of 12 with a lot of chaos trying to get to the theater after. They were efficient, skilled and giving us things before we even asked. We brought our own wine ($29 corking fee) which made since for a group this size.

    My boss and I were away on business to attend a convention. This was our last night in Chicago. We were exhausted and this place was perfect! We had gone to 2 other well known steak houses,but this was by far the best! From the drinks all the way to the entree and service-was divine! Thank you Morton's for doing it right!

    Morton's is always a good business restaurant choice, and especially so at lunch. The chain has gone slightly downscale since its acquisition by Landry's, but the steaks are stil excellent and the service is very good.

    I guess Morton's is consistant if nothing else. this meal was good, Morton's is always good but I really can't say anything stood out as special or extrordinary. Again it was not bad at all just nothing special about the meal or the restaurant. At the price point Morton's falls into I like to see something that really stands out about the meal and it wasn't there for me.

    I hadn't been to a chain steakhouse in a while. It was exactly what you'd expect. Food was great, service was good. We had the scallops as an appetizer- cooked perfectly- delicious. The filet was done exactly as ordered, and the hot chocolate lava cake at the end was perfect.

    When my husband made our reservation he indicated we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. Technically our anniversary was a couple of weeks ago, but this was the most special dinner we had desired to celebrate our milestone anniversary. Our menus were printed with "Happy 30th Anniversary!" Very special. Service was fantastic. Food was fantastic. My husband found a special promotion for $62 per person where you get a starter (soup or salad), 6 oz Fillet with seafood (crab cake, scallops, prawns), a signature side dish and dessert. The salads are huge! The steak was prepared to perfection. Everything we ate was fantastic! We were stuffed to satisfaction when we left.

    I had recently had lunchat Morton's on Wacker with high expectations ut it didn't live up to the hype. There was only thre other tables occuppied but were crowded around where me and my guest sat, which was very chilly, almost breezy. Mind you, it wasn't near the door and it was a fall afternoon. Our waitress, even in her condition of being pregnant, tried her best but seemed to be new to the establishment, not knowing specials and fumbling to serve us. We ordered appetizers but she forgot to take our main course. The salad was supposed to have bleu cheese dressing but it was token crumbles. My companion's pasta was overdone and all desserts have some form of alcohol in them, not good for two people in A.A.

    We enjoyed a Sunday evening celebration after the Chicago marathon. The waiter was friendly, knowledgable, supremely competent and fun, but we expect he is a great mood-matcher and coud have been more formal and low-key if it had been apparent that that was what we wanted. We had lobster bisque and the scallops special to start which were both excellent, followed by filet mignon and New York strip. Both cooked exactly as ordered and both wonderful. The filet was particularly melt-in-the-mouth. The sides of cauliflower with truffle oil and horseradish mashed potato were filling but we finished them both, they were so good. We managed one cheesecake dessert between us. It wasn't a cheap meal but worth every cent, and truly memorable.

  • Nothing Special
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    Chain restaurant or not, we've had a better prepared steak for less money. My wife ordered a $59 strip steak and asked for it to be cooked medium. When the steak came it was clearly overcooked to the point there was little pink left let alone medium. When we said the steak seemed overcooked the server didn't immediately offer to replace the steak. Instead he looked at the steak and said it was medium in the thickest part. We weren't looking for a debate, it should have been replaced no questions asked. My wife kept the steak at that point because she felt guilty for saying anything. After that the service became awkward and uncomfortable. Nothing else was offered at that point and we were charged in full. I would not recommend!!!!!

    I am not a regular visitor, but have eaten at the Chicago Morton's as well as at the one in Minneapolis a few times in the past 15 years. Those were meals that I continue to talk about to this day. Consequently, I was disappointed to find that Morton's has dropped the practice of presenting the cuts of meat as well as the over-sized vegetables at your table as part of the overall experience. This meal seemed like just another meal in just another steakhouse. My New York strip was actually gristly though the flavor was superb. I won't be talking about this meal---in fact, I've already forgotten about it.

    I usually frequent the Houston Galleria Morton's which is an excellent experience, can also vouch for San Antonio and Miami locations. The Chicago experience is quite the opposite. Suggest you included a trip to Morton's in your travel plans outside of Chicago.

    We were very dissapointed! Low value for money. - Our jackets were just put on a chair next to our table. - Silverware was dirty - We did not get a bread knife and had to use the big steak knife to cut the butter - No serious wine recommendation was given instead the menu was read to us - Taste of the food was OK but especially the steak, by far was not the best in town
