    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.

    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.

    Everything flowed very smoothly. The cell phone enabled reservation process was simple, direct, and effective. Our table was ready, and the Morton's team was 100% - the right level of contact and service. The food was outstanding and the ala carte method puts the diner in control of quantity. well done.

    For a supposed high-end steakhouse, the food was exceptionally disappointing. For the price, the food was shockingly disappointing. Unfortunately, our server was disinterested at best and added to the overall poor experience. Just goes to show one cannot be successful on name alone.

    I am a huge fan of Charlie's Steak House in Orlando, FL, which I find to be among the best in the country. While in Chicago last week, my wife and I had dinner at the Morton's on Wacker Place. The food and service were first rate! I highly recommend this restaurant for true steak lovers.

    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

    I received a few emails promoting the 40.00 three course dinner so I thought I would treat my husband to a steak dinner. We had to ask the server about the special, which wasn't an issue, but caused concern that the special might have ended. The salad, veg dish and dessert were the best part of the meal. I was disappointed with the steak, which I still believe wasn't the same tenderloin we would have been served if we were paying the regular menu price. However, according to the special we were getting a 6 ounce filet, but it definitely didn't seem like a 6 ounce filet.

    I think that there was not enough of attention to detail when it came to the service that my party received. If the wait staff would have taken the time to double check the orders and who ordered them there wouldn't have been such a mix up. Also I hate when I patronize a restaurant but then end up feeling like I got substantial service because my table is the only table with people of color. I've eaten a plenty of restaurants and do monitor my treatment as well as the treatment of other surrounding guest. I enjoyed the food but I wish that restaurants treat all of their guest the same.

    Between the two of us, we tried the escargot and the scallops appetizers, the New York strip and the ribeye, the Brussels sprouts side, and for dessert the key line pie and the seasonal fruit crisp with vanilla ice cream. Everything was excellent, and we really enjoyed our dinner. The steaks are sizeable, as are the desserts, and so you want to be seriously hungry when you get there. I also liked that they had a very wide selection of American wines. I had previously tried Morton's original location on Rush St. in the Gold Coast, but I enjoyed my dinner at the Wacker Place location more. This restaurant is more elegant, and the service is more professional, than on Rush St. The noise level is lower too, which is a plus.

    We wanted to replicate our first dinner as a married couple. We ate at the Morton's which was just north of the Museum of Science and Industry, South Shore Drive at East 56th Street. We remember that evening to be very special. Fifty years later we found the evening to be just as exemplary from the warm welcome to our farewell. The attention given to us by the manager, the hostess, and the servers was fabulous. The filet mignon was excellent. The attention given to this being our Golden Anniversary was heartwaming.

    I made a reservation for my girfriend and I for dinner on her birthday. After shopping, we went to the restaurant, arriving slightly early(20 minutes). Since the restaurant was not busy yet, they offered to seat us immediately. They acknowleged her birthday and even had special menus with "Happy Birthday" on them(a nice touch). We had a wonderful meal(we were their for over 2 hours) and I, honestly, could not have been more pleased with the food, service or ambience of the restaurant.
