    . We were celebrating our anniversary and were very pleased with the service received, from special event menus to a complimentary dessert. Service was outstanding, as always. Best steaks in the city, hands down. I had the Porcini crusted bone-in filet, which i would highly recommend to any newcomers. It's a 12 oz, so be hungry when you chose it! The wine list is very good. All in all, Morton's is a top notch steakhouse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/9/2014
    I had been waiting for a special occasion to try this pricey restaurant. My wife and I finally went and were not impressed. The décor was very modern, which is bland in my view. The service was not as good as one would expect from this type of establishment. Most importantly, though, I thought the food was not as outstanding as the price would have you expect. I would not return unless the prices were about half of what they are, because one could get the same food for much less at other steakhouses.

    Great classic steakhouse. We were enticed to go to Morton's with a seafood/steak promotion that arrived in the mail. It was a good excuse to try it out. Classic menu, simple with all the right sides including creamed spinach. Caesar salad had a great dressing just tinted with anchovy flavor, crabcake was nearly solid big pieces of crab meat, filet was tender, roasted brussel sprouts were flavorful although a little overdone (mushy), but molton lava cake with ice cream was fantastic.... All the tables overlooking Fountain Square but if you had a special occasion and could make a reservation at one of those, you'd have a great meal and a great view.

    The service was terrific and spot on. The food was delicious, we both had a Cajun steak. The twice baked potatoes were to die for! I was not too crazy about the merlot wine I had (I believe it was the lambert type) . My husband had a raspberry malt beverage that was terrific though! We overall had a great time on valentines date night.

    I lived in Downtown Chicago for 17 years, and would frequent Morton's once a month. This location in Cincinnati is a let down. I went here for Valentine's Day. It was sad. We got dat 40 mins after our reservation, and not one drink comped. The guests were in gym shoes and jeans. Not proper attire for guests around me when I'm spending $400 for dinner. One woman at the bar (while we were waiting to be sat) pulled an ADT Beer Coosie out of her purse for her Bud Light. Bad environment. Should have better dress code, not timely, not a 4 star restaurant. Go around the block to Orchard's at the Palm. Ask for Charles Redmond (not me) and tell him Trent sent you. Much better way to spend your money. Todd Kellyis a Genious.

The bacon steak, Cajun steak, brussel sprouts, macaroni and cheese and the lyonnaise potatoes were absolutely divine! We will be dining at Morton's very soon. We already picked out what we are going to order when we return. Thanks for a memorable evening

    I have been to Morton's several times and the food and service was just as good this time. Waiter was nice but he did use his bare hands to touch the bread after cleaning the table and clearing away dirty dishes! That was my only gripe. The manager greeted us at the door and came to see how dinner was. I will return.

    We have visited Morton's several times and have always found the food to be outstanding. It was a very slow night but still the service was well above average, not a perfect 5 stars but 4-3/4. I had requested a window table, if available, so we got one with a nice view of Fountain Square, the ice rink and snow piles all over the streets and sidewalks. The wine list is extensive and can be expensive. We are not into wine or the bar scene but the excellent diner for five was still $400 after the tip. Can only afford this for special occasions but as in many things you get what you pay for. Thanks, Morton's for another nice evening.

    This was our 1st time at Morton's. I have been married for 25 years and had never gone to a high scale restaurant so we decided to go to Morton's. The food was delicious however our waiter was a little slow. We had to wait for our drinks (cokes) to be refilled a few times. I will definitely go back...but will have to save up money first.

    Service was great, food was great, atmosphere very nice, wonderful view of Fountain Square - only negative is that side items are quite expensive for what you get ($12 for asparagus for 7 spears?) plus we were told side items are great to share with the table - how do you split 7 asparagus spears 4 ways? And a side of mashed potatoes for 4 yielded about 2 tablespoons per person - To me that is not a serving - should've been 12 spears at the least and twice the potatoes. Other than that, I was very pleased. Oh, and get the chocolate lava cake!

    I have been to a number of steak houses, most of them being of the Jeff Ruby variety. I can not say enough about the food or the service. Top notch on both counts. I had Veal and wife had Steak. Both just melted in my mouth. So incredibly good. I give the ambiance a lower number, because there was nothing special about it...nothing that just leaped out. The view of downtown Cinci was great, but I suppose that was because of the light snow, and it made everything just look fantastic. It being on the 2nd level of the building definitely helps that.

    My wife and I had dinner prior to going to a show. Restaurant was beautiful and not busy at all cosdering it was a Sunday. Server was good and attentive. The meal was OK s we were hoping for more. Steak OK no seasoning along with the patatos and the creamed spinach witch all need salt and pepper. The crab cakes and bacon steak app were really good. For the money you are better off trying a different steak house.

    My wife and I dined at Morton's on January 11, 2014. I had the bone in ribeye which was extremely flavorful. I recommend for a ribeye to be cooked to at least medium rare so some of the marbling is rendered enhancing the flavor while maintaining tenderness. My wife enjoyed the 8 oz filet prepared rare. Overall a great experience. I would rank Morton's an 8 on a ten point scale. Jeff Ruby's restaurants are my favorites for great steaks and ambience and they get a 10 in my ranking.
