We were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary and have celebrated each one with Morton's. The good was amazing. Everything exceeded expectation. We will make this our anniversary tradition every year.

Dining out at Morton's
It was a bit of a wait when we arrived but nothing too long and it was a Saturday night! We had called ahead to let them know we were running late and they said it would be no problem so they had actually been quite accomodating! This is a restuarant to visit for a special occasion since it's not exactly inexpensive. They will print a special menu with a "dedication" at the top of a paper menu for the occasion you let them know you are celebrating and also offer a free dessert for the occasion as well. These little extra special touches make it a nice restaurant for that special occasion!

Service and food were outstanding!
Service was outstanding and the Ribeye and Tuna were perfect. We always enjoy dining at Morton's. Morgan, Ron and Somas are the best!

My family ate at Morton's for Mother's day 2013, and enjoyed the experience. The service was a little slower than normal, but it could have been because of the holiday.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thought we`d try Morton`s for Mother`s Day dinner. Although there was a small glitch with our steaks, the food was outstanding. We did feel a bit rushed by our waitress`s aggressive recommendation of dessert (several times) during our meal. We realize some of the desserts took rt time to prepare, but scheesh! I would recommend Morton`s to anyone who would enjoy a good steak.

Poor front desk experience.
Poor front desk experience. We arrived early and were told we'd need to wait. That wasn't a problem. But there was a feeling of indifference at the front desk. And then no one came to get us at the time of our reservation when we were sitting in the bar area and having a glass of wine. A more senior person I think "got it," as we were being seated. But it was too late at that point. The person who should have been more attentive was chatting with colleagues in the bar and, we think, having a glass of wine.
Food was excellent. But at these prices (top steak now $57) the service should match the food. Unfortunately it did not. Hard to justify coming back at those prices.
Get your act together in all parts of the restaurant.

This was my first occasion
This was my first occasion to Morton's in Bethesda. All I can say is what an experience I had! Delightful! I truly can't think of a thing I would hope they improve upon...it was that good!

Excellant anniversary celebration
A delightful experience. I had notified the restaurant of our anniversary through open table. Special menus were printed up. Everyone from the assistant g.m. Wes, to our waiter, Bob could not have been more pleasant. The food was up to our expectations(delicious), but the special treatment for our anniversary was extraordinary.

My son and I enjoyed an early dinner (6:30PM) in your Bethesda, MD location. The service was a bit hurried, however, the staff was pleasant and complimentary. Your house merlot was excellent. The lamb was cooked correctly and the asparagus was perfect. (grilled) The evening was enjoyable and we will return. Michael Johnson and son, Alexander.

Surprise Fathers Day
This event was a surprise for fathers day. The table was in the perfect location, there was sufficient arm room for six people at the table, and the table settings were clean, uniform, and visually appealing to the eye. The service was timed perfectly, from taking our order to giving us the check. Information on food items and description of timing for certain dessert items was appreciated (since this was the first time for all of us) and we did not feel rushed in enjoying our meal. The cost was to be expected but we did not feel overcharged because the overall food, service, and venue was outstanding.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I usually love Morton's. Thought I'd try the Bethesda location. Service was great. But the food was mediocre at best. I had filet minon and scallops. They were bland and lacked flavor. Same with Chocolate Souffle.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for Our Anniversary
We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our anniversary. Our server was fabulous, attentive wiyhout hovering and shevpaid attention to detail. The wedge salad was crisp and cold steaks were perfect, cooked as we asked and just the right flavor. Our margaritas were the best and the lemon soufflé tasted as good as it was beautiful to look at. The mashed potatoes weren't the best we've ever had but everything else more than made up for it.
The redecorating was done very well. What a difference.

Anniversary for Four!
Great place to share our wedding anniversary with wonderful friends whose wedding anniversary is the day after ours. While dinner was delicious, service was a bit slow, although our waiter was always very gracious. The meals were certainly worth the wait!
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just terrific dinner
Great steaks perfectly grilled. Sides, salad and shrimp cocktail, not to mention complimentary onion bread, great. And fine strong drinks, nice wine. Service was quick and expert. Definitely pricey but worth it.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good except!
Food was super. Service was good not great. Ambience left much to be desired. However, parking charges of $10.00 was not appropriate for such an expensive restaurant . They should picked up part of that. Most restaurants of that class provide parking.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Morton's Bethesda was EXCELLENT!! Food and service was top notch. Was overly impressed when we noticed our menus were personalized with "Happy Birthday, Stephen!"

Perfect birthday dinner
We celebrated my teenage daughter's birthday at Morton's. Impeccable service, warm, friendly, courteous. The manager and staff went out of their way to make her feel special. Great food. Great atmosphere. A perfect evening.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here on Saturday and it was awesome. The waiter, staff, and manager were all great. Everyone chipped in to make this a great experience. I got the double porterhouse, Oscar style, and it was out of this world and definitely lived to my expectations. I was seated and tended to as soon I got there. It was one of, if not the best, dining experience I have had in the D.C. area. Someone wrote a bad review about this place a while ago and it is not true at all. This place is awesome.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Manager makes the difference
I ordered a bone-in ribeye, medium rare. When I cut into my steak I noticed that it was a bit tough and more like Pittsburgh. The manager (Wesley, I think), noticed, and insisted on sending it back and he patiently waited at the line for the steak to return as MR. When I got the steak back my family had just but finished their meals. He asked me to cut the steak open and check the temp (i typically don't like cutting a steak down the middle, i prefer to work from one end to the other) and he realizes it's tough, explains that this should have been discarded in the kitchen. He made up for this with wonderful service and check adjustments.
Wesley took very good care of us and for this reason I will definitely be back.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Specials are special
Another delicious visit to Morton's. We have been fortunate enough to take advantage of their "Steak and Seafood" and summer multi-course specials. Meal was properly paced and the attention of our waiter, Mike, and the assistant GM, Wes was friendly and helpful. We shall return.

Great 31st Anniversary
We didn't make the reservation until 4pm, and I was immediately impressed with the personalized Happy Anniversary menus. The hostess snapped a photo, and slipped it into a Morton's souvenir holder. My steak was mostly medium rare, but the thinner side was a bit overcooked. I didn't plan to mention it but my unenthusiastic "fine" when the waiter asked about the steak brought a visit from Wes, the manager. I'd eaten most of the steak, and did not want another one. Instead, Wes offered to buy an aperitif to offset the less-than-perfect steak. Although our coupon included dessert, the restaurant provided another on the house to celebrate our anniversary - chocolate mousse and creme brûlée there, and a gigantic carrot cake for breakfast.

We visit Morton's once or
We visit Morton's once or twice a year for special occasions. This last visit was one of our best experiences there. In addition to their regular menu, they had three others. We chose from the Summer Sensations with half portions of appetizer, salad and desert-Just right. My wife enjoyed the ahi tuna appetizer and our filets were great. Emily, our waiter, was attentive and helpful. We were surprised that the restaurant had quite a few empty tables, but enjoyed the quiet.

Great time had
We had a great time at Morton's. the food was good but pricy. The service was great. It was awesome walking out to my car which the valet had already brought around thanks to our waitress so there was no wait time for my car. The ambience is always first class here.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the restaurant
We went to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday. We went early, 6:00pm, so it was very quiet, which we like, but I would recommend that the lighting be turned up some as the place was too dark. The food was excellent as usual and the staff very gracious. Save room for the crème brulee.

I DINED ALONE WHILE TRAVELING AND THE WAIT STAFF WAS WONDERFUL! The steak melted in my mouth and my salad was perfect. Was an expensive meal but worth every bite.

Always a hit
This time I went to Morton's for a girls nitght out. No real complaints. Our waiter was noticably new to the job but very pleasant. Didn't follow instructions for boxing left overs. We corrected, no big deal.

My wife and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary at Morton's. I had made arrangements ahead of time for a few special "touches". Morton's went above and beyond what I had requested. The entire evening was spectacular. Everything from the moment that we walked in until we departed 2 1/2 hours later. It truly was a memorable evening.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great dinner. The food was excellent and our server had a wonderful personality in addition to her great service. Picture of our party of 4 was given to us since it was a birthday- this was a nice little added touch.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My date and I were here on
My date and I were here on Tuesday for dinner, on one of their slow nights. Basically had the entire dining room to ourselves except for 4 or 5 other tables. We had the porcini crusted bone-in filet, the honey-chili glazed salmon fillet, the sauteed button mushrooms, and the creme brulee, all of which were delicious and cooked to perfection. Our server was Chris and he was absolutely outstanding - attentive, pleasant, witty, and really took the time to explain the menu. For only having been there for 2 weeks, he was certainly very knowledgeable about the menu!

Morton's The Steakhouse Bethesda
Wow what a great restaurant. Food and service could not have been better. When making reservations I indicated it was a special event. Morton's took note. They had custom printed menus for us, the hostess greeted us and mentioned the occasion, a restaurant owner or manger stopped by to greet us and they even gave us a free desert. Red carpet treatment all the way. I could not make a suggestion to improve the food or service.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Management should pay attention
We had a reservation for 5 PM, when the restaurant opened. It was at least 5 minutes after five before anyone staffed the front desk. When the receptionist arrived, she gave reservation slips for us and a couple in front of us to the manager. He immediately seated the couple in front of us, then seemed to forget about or to ignore us. We were finally seated by the receptionist at 5:15 PM. It then took another 10-15 minutes before our waiter came to the table. If the restaurant opens at 5 PM, it should ready for customers at 5 PM, and not require another 15-20 minutes to come up to speed. After that, everything was fine, which is why we rated Service "Good", i.e., Management = Poor; Waiter = Outstanding; Average for Service = Good.

This was our first time eating
This was our first time eating at Mortons. The atmosphere was great. The food was great and the only wish if any was to have a jazz band performing.

Perfect Wedding Anniversary spot!
We had 4 star service with a 4 star meal! Thanks to the special personal printed menus, wonderful staff and food and drink that was beyond fabulous. It added a whole new level of enjoyment with the personal touches. If you are going for an event be sure to let them know what it is ahead of time! The waiter was wonderful and even gave us a dessert on the house in honor of our occasion! My husband is very picky about his steaks so the highest compliment I can give is that he loved his meal! I went along with the reviews and picked 6:30 to give the kitchen a chance to really get up going before we arrived. PERFECT timing, once we finished the dining room was full. On the way home we made plans to come back next month. Thanks Morton's and staff

Clients staying at the Hyatt
Morton's is great when you have clients staying at the Hyatt . Easy after a long day. Bar is fun. Food is solid. Restaurant can be a little loud . All and all no complaints.

Expensive meal, but worth the money. Great restaurant for a special occasion. Renowned restaurant for a reason.

They never left
Prior to our dinner I read reviews for this location. Not sure of others' motivation,but we had our usual great dinner. We were there at 5:15 and seated promptly. Our drink order placed and served right away. The waitstaff was friendly and our order prepared and served as expected. During our meal we were visited by the manager and Joe,both anxious for us to have our dinner as we expected. We'll be back.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
special occasion - use online reser
We celebrated our anniversary and made a reservation online. It was a really nice surprise that they decorated the table, had a special menu with our names, took a photo and gave us a choice of 3 desserts free. Everyone on staff was exceptionally well trained and friendly. I had seen complaints on Yelp and I conclude at this point that most people use Yelp to complain not compliment. Also took advantage of the free parking in the County garage across Wisconsin Avenue.

We saw the first sign of movement
We saw the first sign of movement toward the kind of quality that Mortons could always be counted on to provide, something that has been lacking since Landry's took over. Hope it continues.

Excellent as always. Service is great and the food quality is second to none.

My wife and I celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary with dinner at Morton's in Bethesda. We could not have had a better evening. From the time we walked in the door, everyone we met greeted us warmly and respectfully. They made our night a wonderful experience. I made my reservation on line and I got a comfirmation almost immediately. I received two more emails before our night there asking if they was anything they could do for us to please let them know. I received a voice mail the night of our reservation reminding me of the date and time and to let them know if anything had changed. In 44 years of marriage this was probably the best night out ever thanks to Morton's.

Kind of disappointed
Birthday accommodations with menu and picture were excellent.
Most of food was very good, but the steaks were fatty, and the service was spotty. Also the vodka martini's were weak.
Valet Parking very good.

We had a $100 gift card to Morton's. My wife and I went on a Saturday evening. Everything about our experience was perfect. Our waiter (can't recall his name but he is Argentinian and my wife was speaking to him in Spanish) was so thoughtful. He guided us to order just the right things. The food arrived and EVERYTHING from the salad to the steak, shrimp, crab cake and dessert was FANTASTIC. It all tasted so good.
The managers of the restaurant stopped by to see us and politely asked how everything was going. They thanked us repeatedly for coming to the restaurant AND sent us home with a small, complementary dessert to give to our babysitter (nice touch).
Yes, Morton's is VERY expensive, but great for special occasions.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A friend and I wanted a low key Thanksgiving so we decided to eat out--we chose Morton's. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and made to feel very welcome. The meal was excellent--we both chose filet mignon with a side of grilled asparagus and a souffle for dessert.
I deducted one star for "Service" because ours wasn't as good as I would have expected. Our server disappeared twice for what seemed like 20 minutes each; once when we wanted to order apps then again before dessert. It was not too big a deal, but it was a little annoying.
Overall it was a great meal and enjoyable experience.
