    Morton's is by far the finest restaurant in Cincinnati. It beats the Jeff Ruby Steak Houses, they are overpriced for what they are. Morton's food and wait staff are by far the best. Polite, knowledgeable, and attentive, all tributes to the management of the restaurant. You never feal rushed, it is an absolute joyful place to spend an evening.

    The only complaint that I have is that we had a party of 5 so they sat us at a table to opens from a 4 top square to a 5 top round in the same space and all night long when the server would help the table behind me I got hit in the head with is order book. It got rather annoying to say the least. Overall it was a good experience and we had a good time!

    I took my wife there to for a special anniversary dinner. Ryan, our server, was fantastic. You could not have asked for someone more knowledgable and accomodating. Unlike some similiar restaurants, the service was not overbearing or annoying, it was just the right amount to have a relaxed dinner. Everyone treated us like royalty from the flowers that I ordered being on the table when we arrived to the perfect seating that I had requested.

    Dined on 11/2/2008
    We were at Morton's with another couple to purchase their "Make A Wish" $19.99 sirloin burger and fries. When our waiter started his "routine" explaining the Morton's menu, we told him he didn't have to go through all that because we were getting the special. He was clearly not thrilled about that and then said he was going to go through his routine anyway(as if we might change our mind and order something more lucrative). I think, too, he picked up on the fact the couple we were with were being very careful with their money. While he didn't ignore us once he knew we weren't going to have as high a bill as he would like, the service after he realized what we were about was less than what we have come to receive at Morton's.

    We have eaten at Morton's before. And the experience was always a 4 or a 5. This evening the food was off. We had made reservations for my son & husband's birthdays. They are both red meat lovers. Unfortunately the lobster bisque was watery. My petite filet mignon was not the typical Morton's perfect grade since it had too much fat (not just the marbled kind). My son's steak was not prepared correctly either. The sides & desserts rocked! But the cut & preparation of the red meat was substandard for Morton's.

    This was a wonderful experience in every respect! This was teh 10th anniversary for me and my partner. I noted on the reservation that this was our 10th anniversary. At the end of the meal, the server showed up witha huge strawberry on some whipped cream and a candle. He took our picture and presented it to us in a card with a personnel message signed by the staff. How neat and touching.

    We enjoyed dinner at Mortons on Sweetest Day. The service was outstanding.... besides our waitress, the manager stopped by checking on us and the extended service help made sure our water glasses were full and plates cleared promptly. Our waitress even snapped a picture for us to remember this occasion. The meal was prepared perfectly, we had filet mignon and scallops, the salads were wonderful from the Mortons salad and the tomato with blue cheese. The sides were great and the dessert was heavenly. I will return and send colleagues and friends to the restaurant.

    What in the hell is a "foodie" anyway?? I know, it is a term for pseudo-cultured people who think they are better than everyone else. Morton's is a real steakhouse for real people who want a great meal and not some elaborate pile of garbage. The foodies can got to Bocas or Pigall's and eat crap.Then they can rave about how exquisite their crap was. What a joke.

    The bar staff/service/food were great. In the dining room, our server was one of the worst I've had in a long time. We were using a promotional coupon for dinner, and that immediately set the tone for her: no need to put forth ANY effort to make our dinner acceptable. Her only goal was to get us out of her section has quickly as possible. It was our first time to dine at a Morton's and I WILL NOT BE BACK. The food was fine, but the experience was so poor, it was a complete waste on money.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/7/2008
    I was overall disappointed. It's a decent steak, but for the price, it is nowhere near the value. I could not shake the feeling that this was a chain restaurant trying to prove it's chops as a fine dining establishment. However, it fell flat and felt like a run-of-the-mill place. It's still ok for a good night out, and Cincinnati does not have much more to offer downtown. However, it does not deserve the praise of a great steak house.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Had a reservation and arrived on time. I have been to Mortons on several occasions and this by far was the worst visit. I resent the fact that they horded us into the bar to try and get us to buy drinks even though the dining room was not completely full. They finally go us in 15 to 20 minutes after our reservation. If we wanted to drink and have appetizers we would have arrived early. That really set the stage for an average visit, although our waiter was very good. I think we will continue to go to Ruby's instead or Flemings.

    We have high expectatios of Mortons and although the new location is great, this experience was lackluster at best. My NY strip was delivered well done on a med-rare order. They steak was comp'd but mistakes like this are not what you expect for a 1st class steak chain. The service was so incredibly slow that it took 45 minutes after being seated to get our first drink. With several Jeff Ruby options available, keep this low on your list.
