Very willing to accommodate wishes
Being on the "cave man" lifestyle, they accommodated my wishes to minimize grain carbs with substitutions that were not on the menu. The filet was perfect, the crab cake could have been moister with bigger lump crab in it but their sauces were perfect (not overly flavored, sugared, or spiced, which you often find in lesser quality restaurants. The service with the GM helping with wine, the front-of-the-house Managet frequently checking on how everything was, was superb. The waiter I had was good, just a bit of a language challenge.

Only the best
Service, food, atmosphere.... all the best of what the country's best steakhouse chain has to offer.
Champagne and a Dark and Stormy
Appetizers: Raw oysters and the Tuna Tower... both were amazing
Bottle of Ponzi pinot noir
Chopped salad (split)
Bone in rib-eye (taste defines why it's a signature dish) and Chicken Christopher (I know... ordering chicken in place like this but INCREDIBLE)
Mashed and the sauteed wild mushrooms (great addition to the menu)
Plate of berries and mango and cheese cake.
Had food to go that made steak and eggs w/ mushrooms the perfect brunch the next day

Great food as always
Continue to be impressed with the quality of the food.

Was there to celebrate an engagement. The menus had the name of the engaged couple on them. We were treated as though we were personal friends.

Why go anywhere else?
This place beats any other restaurant in the crystal city area hands down. Renovation is beautiful, all staff friendly. Enjoyed thoroughly.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
That is all I have to say... Amazing!! All in all very good meal at Morton's.

My wife and I had our 30th anniversary at the restaurant in Arlington. It was great from the time we entered. Parking attendent took care of our car. We had heart shaped confetti on our table. The menu announced our celebration. The wine was good, the bread was even better. Food was unbelievable from appetizer to salad to entree. And desert was not to be believed.
We have a photo that was taken by the staff that we will keep forever. Well at least till our 40th wedding anniversary at the same restaurant.

I always have very good service when I dine here. The wait staff is excellent.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our son's birthday... he was SO surprised by the personalized menu and that EVERYONE came over to wish him a great day. Impeccable service, delicious food and overall awesome atmosphere. Loved the jazz music, played at a moderate level but also created some energy - perfect.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I offered the family a nighttime trolley tour or the best steak they would ever eat. Fortunately they made the right choice and Morton's lived up to my promise. Fantastic dinner!
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Service !!
Morton's is the place to go for that very special occasion to celebrate. They prepare excellent steaks and side dishes. The service is the best. Even the manager came by several times to make sure everything was perfect. The topping was they provided a free soufflé to celebrate our anniversary at the end of the meal. This is a must for special times.

Morton's Never Let's Me Down
I dine t Morton's often. The quality of food is consistent and the favors are well balanced. The service is impeccable. My favorite waiter is Travis (ask for him...you won't be disappointed). He knows what I want before I ask for it and I often sware he reads my mind. The Management is exceptional and they work to know who you are when they realize you have visited more than once. They know how to pair wine and will help you choose your meal based on your mood. Not an easy task! I go to Morton's because of the service and friendliness. BUT the food being so good is a nice plus.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I know many people think a high level of noise is a good thing--but I don't feel it was at Motron's. It was SO noisy that carrying on a conversation without raising my voice was difficult.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here to celebrate
We went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was fabulous. They printed out names on our menu and came around to take a photo for us, it was a nice touch! Our food was delicious. No complaints!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a lovely night. Waitress
What a lovely night. Waitress Kelly and manager/sommolier were attentive but not overbearing. Food was wonderful. Steak cooked to perfection. We did the $49 Summer Menu and had more food than we could finish. I took dessert home.

Unexpected Happy Birthday for me!
I stopped in solo and w/ 10 minutes notice on Wednesday. I was greeted by an always friendly hostess, Travis (my favorite server) & Stephen (GM) at the door. Stephen promptly carried my work bag to my table, where Travis was waiting w/ a personalized birthday menu & a decorated table. My birthday was the previous Thursday. It was a wonderful surprise! Colleen, Christine & Tee all stopped by to say Happy Birthday & chat. Chef Wee made my favorite scallops for me, & salad & steak & crab!!! I didn't even have to order. Travis knew all of my favorites & made sure every one of them was on my birthday table. Stephen also brought me a glass of wine to enjoy w/ my feast! THEN Birthday dessert with a candle arrived! 5 STAR PERSONAL SERVICE ALWAYS!!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made 8:30 reservations as my sisters flight was due in at 8. 1 1/2 hours later her plane arrives and Mortons is closed...or are they? The staff accommodated our late arrival with graciousness and hospitality. We were not rushed and the full menu was available to us. We had an exceptional meal (ask for lamb chops "cajuned"...they're awesome as an app or a meal) and a superb wine and my sister was blown away that one could late dine here in Arlington. Thanks Mortons of Arlington - you certainly made us feel at home.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Meal Deal
Thoroughly enjoyed the four course meal deal at Morton's The Steakhouse. Everything was superbly prepared and tasted great!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have your dessert first
The dessert was wonderful! Skip the extra sides and save room for the dessert. Get several and share with your table!

Great Anniversary Dinner
We were celebrating our 12 year anniversary and since the reservation asked, I entered the info into the box. I was surprised to be greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" from our hostess and even more surprised by the cute photo she took of my husband and I. She then presented us with printed out copies of the photo. Our menu even said "Happy 12 Year Anniversary Erin & Tom" on top. Our server, Veronica, was sweet and knowledgable and was able to provide great feedback and suggestions. Our appetizer was unbeleivably good and the wine and beer suggestions provided we wonderful. Our main meals were cooked to perfection and more than generous portions. We had the lemon souffle for dessert and it was devine (not to mention complimentary)!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Savor the Summer menu was
Savor the Summer menu was a great value: 4 courses for $49. Provides just enough food for a moderate appetite. We had an especially good waitress on this visit. Only regret is that the bar has been opened to the dining area since our last visit, allowing the noise from the bar to disturb diners and also making TV screen visible to diners.

Morton's Crystal City, VA
Outstanding service. 8oz filet was perfect. Ribeye was over-seasoned a bit. Both cooked medium rare to perfection.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Friends
We had dinner on aa Fri Eve with a disabled friend. She was treated like a queen with everyone wanting to help her be comfortable. What an evening. Love the service....and the steak was great also.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Nice Evening at Morton's
We were very pleased with our dinner at Morton's on Sept.28th. We were seated promptly and our waiter arrived immediately with water and menus. The food, a special three course meal, was excellent. Generous portions...fresh and well prepared. We will definitely be back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here for their 4 course Savor The Summer menu. The service was very friendly, although they were not prompt about replacing the utensils they take away at the end of each course. The food was delicious. I had the Ahi Tuna Tower, Morton's salad, and the honey-glazed salmon which consisted of 2 large filets on a bed of spinach and beans. The salmon portion was huge and I could not finish it. For dessert I chose the key lime pie which was very refreshing. The dining room was too dim and I had a hard time seeing my food. But all in all it was well worth it. I will take advantage of future special menu offerings as they appear.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful restaurant, with well-trained staff. Food is terrific like always. They have a great special going on right now that includes salad, steak with seafood, a side and a dessert! Awesome deal!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wait staff was not adequate. Had to wait in between courses for an unreasonable amount of time.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as usual
The food, the drinks, the service - all as great as always. However, first meal since they had remodeled. More open, modern design . Gone are the old steakhouse dark wood, and tuxes. The room is brighter and the servers more casual in dresss but still very professional. We had the limited menu bone-in filet that had excellent flavor and the bacon steaks (pork belly) were absolute treats. I appreciate that they make their Sazerac the right way - with rye. The souffle was a great end to the rich and tasty meal you expect, and receive, at Morton's.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would expect to give 5 stars for a place of Morton's reputation. Went with a party of 4. We had one ribeye over cooked and a strip under cooked. Service was excellent.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Husband's birthday- a hit!
My husband and I went to Morton's for a quiet, romantic birthday celebration. We were given a quiet table in the back equipped with tasteful confetti and personalized menus. My husband got the 16oz NY strip (which he says was delicious) and I got the bibb lettuce salad, asparagus, and lyonnaise potatoes- all fabulous. The server brought out a chocolate souffle and vanilla ice cream for dessert to commemorate the occasion. No song, no dance, no craziness- just wonderful food, good service, and a quiet evening- perfect!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nothing major.... great birthday !!
Had a nice birthday reward point evening. Filet, salad and bacon brussel sprouts. All very good. was nice to see the staff again - Victoria and Stephen.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Fine Dining Experience
We're by no means new to dining at Morton's, and that's because we always know what to expect: excellent steaks and sides, attentive service and an atmosphere that encourages relaxed celebration. We'll continue to rely on this for special occasions like the recent anniversary.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for steak
I think Morton's is about the best for steak. I had the rib eye and it was perfect. Patti had the salmon and shrimp dish and it was excellent. We both enjoyed the Martinis. Morton's never disappoints. Service was top notch.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Quiet, relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food
I fell in love with the cream of corn, I had a New York strip steak and
it was deliciously tender!!
I am going back and would recomend it to friends and family!!

Morton's - Crystal City, VA
I took a business client to dinner. Everything was perfect. We had the Sea Scallops wrapped in bacon for an appetizer. The Sea Scallops were moist and flavorful without the accompanying sauce and lemon. For dinner we had the signature Filet Mignon accompanied by creamed corn and the creamed spinach. My business partner ordered medium rare and I ordered rare plus. The Filets, as expected, were perfect! While one goes to a steak house for the meat, the sides were a pleasant surprise. The creamed spinach was excellent; perfect balance of spinach, cream and spices. The creamed corn was a pleasant surprise; much more corn than cream and I believe I tasted a hint of nutmeg which was a great addition. We finished the meal with Key Lime Pie.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress in the dining hall was very good. However, the service at the bar was a fail. We were largely ignored by the staff for at least 5 minutes without even having eye contact with a bartender. They weren't that busy and a " I will be right with you" acknowledgement would have sufficed.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious. Service was outstanding. Exactly what you expect when you dine at Morton's!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, excellent service
We ate here after the Marine Corps Marathon because we wanted to treat ourselves. The salads were a great size for the price, so we didn't order an appetizer. My wife had a steak, which she claimed was excellent, and I had the beef short ribs with sea scallops. This was good, but the name was misleading in that you only get ONE short rib. The sides we chose were the bacon macaroni and cheese, and the Parmesan truffle fries, both were delicious and the portions were the size you'd expect at an a la carte steakhouse. For dessert, my wife had the chocolate mousse, and I finished the fries! Throughout, our server Veronica was attentive but not intrusive, and very knowledgable. We'd go back again and recommend it to friends.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great greeting at the door and seated right away. Our Server, Troy, was extremely helpful and attended to our dinner service with grace and professionalism. Excellent wine selection, recommended by the Sommelier, to accompany meals prepared just as we had ordered. We will happily return.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lived Up To Recommendations
Our first time experience will be one to remember.

From the personalized menu's
From the personalized menu's to the confetti on the table our most recent visit to Morton's was a delight. Known for their level of Service as well as the quality if their dishes they continued to impress and delight. We chose a bottle of wine which was no longer available, but instead of that being a disappointment, we were suggested to another vintage which was a superb choice within the same price point.
Anyone wishing for a wonderful meal, charming and peaceful atmosphere, look no further than Morton's.

An evening at Morton's
The service was great, the food was very good, but the price was too expensive. The main course's were reasonable but the side dishes, soup, and dessert were double what they should've been.

Wonderful 1st Time
This was my 1st time at Morton's, and every second was grand! The minute I walked in, I was greeted by a friendly hostess. My table was ready, but my friend was running behind and I waited for her to arrive. The hostess made great friendly talk with me. Once my friend arrived, we were seated at a nice booth away from the busier area. There were a lot of groups in attendance. The waiter was great, and the manager came over and introduced himself. What a nice guy! He even guessed the perfume my friend was wearing and told a lovely story behind it. We both ordered the mixed grilled salmon and shrimp. Everything was cooked to perfection. From the staff to the food, my first time was wonderful!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Repeat Pleasure !!
Not our first visit to this Mortons nor will it be our last ! Great food and service with all the right makings of a great evening ! Our server, Troy, was completely knowledgeable of the Menu, the evenings specials and the wine list ! You do not need a reason to visit this restaurant rather all you need is an appetite, we are already planning our next visit !

Worked out great as a spur
Worked out great as a spur of the moment choice for entertaining an out of town guest..

Fantastic Service and Food!
Stephen (the General Manager) and his staff did an impeccable job ensuring our visit was a special one, I would highly recommend a visit to Morton's in Crystal City to anyone looking for a great meal and an overall fantastic dining experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great time
I truly enjoy Morton's. Every trip is a wonderful experience. The food is always good especially the veal chop! Travis and Steven are exceptional and treat us like family. They know what we enjoy and pair our selections with the perfect wine. Enjoy your visit as we always enjoy ours.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Kudos for Excellent Service & Food
The staff could not have done a better job making an anniversary celebration special for our young friends. The menu had their names with a Happy Anniversary note printed at the top of it;; the table was decorated; and they took pictures of us, giving each of us copies of the sweet pictures. As always, the food was superb. Morton's is our place to treat friends and to celebrate special occasions.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and service are fine, but it's nothing you can't get for half the price -- or less -- in dozens of other restaurants.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Morton's is one of my favorite Steak places, as the Filet Mignon is tops. We have none near us, but try to make reservations when ever we can.
