BOOTHS ARE UNCOMFORTABLE
Typical Morton’s in that everything is above average and the service is impeccable. My problem this visit were the new booths. They are just too cramped to be comfortable. It made the whole dining experience miserable.

My Favorite Restaurant
Morton's has always been my favorite restaurant. The food is outstanding along with the service and the ambience. I believe that it is the food, service and ambience that can make or break a restaurant and Morton's certainly has all of these.

We took my daughter there for her birthday. They made up the menu with her name on it, and everyone that interacted with us wished her a happy birthday - she felt very special!
The waiter guided us through the menu and also helped us with portion sizes to prevent us ordering too much.
It is on the pricey side, yet I think good value given the effort, preparation, service, and quality of food.

Good for special occasions
This was a nice place to go to show thanks to a couple who had helped us with something. It is very pricey, which we knew going in, so personally we will reserve this for very special occasions and not host a group event here. The food was good and service professional.

We had a very good experience up until dessert. There was quite a long wait from the time our coffee was served and the dessert being served. My chocolate souffle was terrible. It was a lump of mushy ingredients with no liquidity at all. I will not let this hinder us from visiting Morton's again; I just hope that they pay more attention to their dessert preparation and timing of the service.

This location has been recently
This location has been recently remodeled and updated. I really like the new vibe. We selected outdoor seating, but there was some power washing going underneath us during dinner, which made for some very unneccsary noise.
Overall, good service and great food.

Memorable Birthday Dinner
I recently took my wife here for her birthday. The restaurant acknowledged the occasion with a complimentary photograph. Our waiter seemed a little nervous at first and took a little while to bring our drinks, but from there on out the dinner was nearly flawless. My wife and I both ordered the four course summer dinner deal, each of us opting for the filet. The French onion soup and chopped spinach salad were superb and the filets were both cooked to medium rare brilliance! We topped it off with some of the best chocolate soufflé I have ever had. It was a very pleasant dining experience and we will go again for our next special occasion.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The creamed spinach was stringy and lacked sufficient cream to be called creamed spinach. The Lyonnaise potatoes were greasy and and not hot enough--the greasy flavor was a turnoff. The souffle was bland and the top rubbery making it difficult to eat gracefully.
The 6 oz. filet mignon was delicious and prepared as requested. All other dishes were well prepared and savory.

Enjoyable lunch with friends
Five women out for lunch & catch-up conversation; we had good food, wonderful attention from wait staff- overall a delightful experience!

This Morton's just recently
This Morton's just recently renovated to give it more of a modern feel. I like the new look. We always come here for my husband's birthday, which is in August and we sit in the patio. We didn't enjoy the patio as much this time though. Along with their renovations, they converted some of the outside seating to a bar- which I guess is great for most people but not for us who don't like the smell of cigarette smoke when we're having dinner at Morton's. The music outside was also way too loud. We were told that they only had one control for the sound in the bar and in the patio- which we thought was not a good design!

Anniversary at Mortons
The food was plentiful and exquisite, one of the best steaks I ever had. My wife's steak was good but I'll admit I liked mine better! The staff was attentive and made our 30th anniversary special, and the flowers I had ordered were there and waiting on the table. A wonderful experience.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best steakhouses in the Northern Virginia area! Our steaks were cooked to perfection. We look forward to visiting this restaurant again.

too loud and old decor
not much to complain about with Morton's - I have dined there for years and love it. I would comment, however, that the noise level in this one was quite high, and it was difficult to hold a conversation without leaning over the table toward my guests. Also I noticed the decor was really dated. Looked like an 80's hot spot. They could use with some revamping. Other than those things, it was the same high quality food and service.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the lobster special!
We went again for the lobster special and even my husband who has always been lukewarm about lobsters loved them! They tasted as though they had just been flown in. And the side dishes are always cooked to perfection. Keep up those fabulous specials! -- a loyal patron
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the new look
The food remains great, and the renovation to the dining room and bar is fantastic. Much more open, more light, love it.

Morton's on the upswing
Morton's in Reston has improved it look, service and food. Super. The ceasar salad needs work but everything else is great.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Perfect Anniversary Dinner!
The staff all knew it was our anniversary! They made this occasion very special and of course the food was the best!

Steak and Cigars!
Morton's Steakhouse located at Reston Town Center offers their signature steaks, wines, and martinis as well as open seating for cigar aficionados. It's a must-do when visiting the best town center on the east coast!

I love Morton's in general. The place never fails to let me down on an amazing meal, ambiance, & excellent service. So when my hubby asked if I wanted to go in for a late lunch, YES! The place was empty (3pm) so the restaurant was ours. The managers greeted us with smiling polite faces & catered to whatever was needed. Rick who is the bartender was our server & was nothing, but AMAZING! We sat in a lovely booth had amazing drinks & food. It was so great we moved to the bar at 4:30 for their happy hour. This place gets slammed. The vibe was great. Great people watching. Drinks are amazing & if you are peckish the bites are YUM! First time at this location & will definitely not be the last. Totally worth the drive from Falls Church.

A Tale of Two Steaks
Overall, the meal was wonderful, but it seemed to me that my girlfriend's and my steaks came from two different restaurants. We both ordered rib-eye steaks; hers was the bone-in while mine was the cajun-style; both cooked medium rare as requested. While mine was perfect and melted in my mouth as I've come to expect from Morton's, hers was a disappointment; it was chewy and a little bland. While I wouldn't have had an issue if I were dining at Logan's or Outback, I expect better from Morton's.
Aside from her steak, the rest of the meal was fabulous, and the service was friendly, attentive, and professional.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great birthday event, tell them in advance and you get a special rolled and ribboned menu and they take a photo of you, but all very low key. Whatever desert you have, the birthday person has a candle on theirs. Waiters are all great, know their menu and make great suggestions.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Dinning Experience
This was our second time at Morton's. We love the tasty food and personal service!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
First Time Ever
This was my first time eating here but definitely not the last!! A little pricey but it is truly worth the experience!!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Please read the notes on Open Table
I had indicated that the dinner was to celebrate our daughter's engagement and NOT ONE mention or recognition was ever offered or acknowledge. Oh well, I guess they don't read the notes / comments / special events section. So why fill it in?
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Morton's the Steakhouse in Reston is very Cigar friendly! We like that!!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food and Service
The food and service was bar none, absolutely a wonderful experience and the staff was so welcoming, friendly and would definitely dine at Morton's in Reston again. GREAT JOB!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had lunch with some colleagues and love the new design of the restaurant. It's very posh, open and looks more modern. The menu is so great too. Almost too big for lunch and the prices are a great value for lunch time meetings. Super happy with the changes! And Texas Toast on a grill cheese w/tomato soup. AWESOME.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and Drinks were first rate! Steaks done to the way we asked! Our server Cindy was great!! She took great care of us! Very friendly staff and professional! I will continue to go back!!

Business Dinner Choice 18 Oct
The food is always consistently good and the staff is always on the ball. Morton's is always my first choice for entertaining a special Business Associate.

A birthday Dinner
Our family of 4 went on Saturday night to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. All I did was mention that it was my wife's 40th in the OT reservation, and they took that info and ran with it. Personalized menu wishing my wife a happy birthday, seating in a separate room, very attentive service (everyone from the maître d to our waiter and other waiters in the room wished her a happy birthday), fantastic filet mignon cooked to perfection, no skimping on the alcohol in the martinis and desert for everyone (lava cake and mousse were great)!
My wife loved the personalized touches - fantastic experience !

It's The Steak
We wanted a great steak, plain and simple, so we knew we couldn't go wrong at Morton's. Consistently excellent cuts of beef, great service and awesome desserts to top it off.This Morton's does so well, they appear to have opened up the private dining room to main dining in the evening this cuts into the ambiance a bit as we were seated in a back corner I hope it was just that the restaurant busy and that the hostess wasn't influenced by the two young teens in our party - both foodies and both with three Michelin star experiences under their belts. Tis did nothing to distract from a great server and getting what we came for - two awesome, prime steaks.Overall, a great evening consistent with Morton's top quality and high standards.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated my wife's birthday
We celebrated my wife's birthday and the whole visit was outstanding. From the greeting at the door, the usual great meal and superb service, it couldn't have been better. I can't forget to mention the picture that will help us remember a fine night out.
We will be back and thanks to all for a very pleasureable evening.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Birthday dinner
Restaurant was out of the special we came for, but they had a very adequate substitute value dinner. All of our choices were excellent. Portion size was more than adequate. I wrote that one of us was celebrating a birthday. The menu was personalized and everyone waiting on us knew greeted my husband with birthday wishes. A very nice touch, our 20 something year old son was especially impressed.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Touches for a Birthday
I mentioned it was my man's birthday and they really rolled out the red carpet for us and made it a special night.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit pricey, but well worth it!
The overall ambience and decor is elegant and quite enjoyable. The staff is exceedingly attentive and professional, always trying to anticipate your every need. The setting and menu are not very kid friendly, but the staff will recommend items off the menu to accommodate younger diners. The food is always fresh and brilliantly prepared. The steaks are well seasoned and expertly cooked. The sides are served a la carte and big enough to share. Also, do try the hot chocolate cake, formerly "Godiva cake", served with vanilla ice cream (must order at the same time as your entrée). Highly recommend it.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great but a bit noisy
Great restaurant. Steak was second to none and the wine was incredible. I thought that it was a little noisy but the food, wine and service made up for it.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Expensive, but a great treat
Morton's is very expensive, but the quality of food and service is worth it. It is not a quiet, romantic, out of the way, place, but a good meal that is always on target. The new interior appointments at the Reston restaurant are very nice. We had the lava cake, and it was super!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great service
My wife and I had dinner at Morton's for our anniversary. The food there is always terrific. Every staff member was simply wonderful. Lots of little touches to help make a very special evening.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went on a friday night, it was extremely loud. The service was good and they pay a lot of attention to each table but the overall time it took got our food was long. We spent a total of two hours there. Aside from the noise and the food taking a while everything was good. Next time I go I will try not to go on a friday night. Great food, good service but not a quiet or romantic spot.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM

Morton's is always a great
Morton's is always a great place to eat, especially for business meetings. The booth's were slightly cramped because the table's are a bit too big for the booth itself. The food, service and atmosphere are always great though.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service and food were perfect!
I've never had better service than I received at the Reston location of Morton's. They are there and very helpful but never pushy or feel intrusive. The food is absolutely without flaw. Really can't beat it for a nice night out.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Great experience!
It has been a while since I have had a really good Steak and Morton's truly delivered. The wife had the lobster that she wasn't thrilled about handling and server had the entire shell removed for her. Dining with a 7 and 9 year girls is not always easy and did find the menu was limited for them. The server made some recommendations that the kids that they did enjoy. We had reservations for 8 pm but came by about an hour and half early as the kids were wore out from ice skating and asked if they could take us early which they did. Overall what made the experience were the waiter and the rest of the staff. They made sure everything was the way we wanted and assisted whenever asked. Thanks a bunch!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great steak since...inception?
My husband and I have gone here for special occasions for years. Every time we go the steaks are always perfect. The menu doesn't vary much (they did have three new items since our last visit), but they consistently provide amazing quality. One new item was the mashed sweet potatoes and they were quite good. The souffle was excellent and we highly recommend it. You can't go wrong with any steak you choose.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Open for lunch!
Reston is one of a few Morton's opened for lunch. If you think steak is too heavy and will have you snoring at your desk, there are loads of other options. We shared their new bacon appetizer, a slice each, yummy, and I had the tuna tartar tower. Just enough food.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The new look (update) works
The new look (update) works well. The food has always been excellent

food allergies welcome
I wasn't sure if this restaurant was going to work for our food allergies and intolerances (peanuts, dairy, gluten, corn), but it did! The service was awesome. Our waiter was someone who new food allergies and how to make sure the cook followed the special orders. The kitchen was very accommodating. We did not experience any problems and there even was a glutenfree menu. Can't ask for much more! The food was great as well, although a little on the salty side for my taste. We had a great time and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great piece of meat and super service.

Wonderful Night – Attentive Staff
Food, atmosphere, attention to detail and an attentive staff made for a great 50th birthday celebration for my wife. The food, as always was fabulous. The lobster bisque is always rich with flavor and is as good as you’ll get anywhere! The streaks were cooked and seasoned to perfection and finally the deserts were worth every single calorie. The wine list as great and offers a wide variety of options and prices. A most Go-To restaurant!!
