    Great place to have a special night out for Two, or even a group night (we have done in the past). I enjoyed our special "date night" and the complimentary photo. Dinner was excellent and the food selections were, wonderful and desserts offered a variety of tastes. I would go here again, and we will most likely do so in a few months.

    We chose M, since we like M in SF and LB. Unfortunately, this was our first and last time to the SJ M. The staff was friendly with good ambiance as expected. We went for Sun dinner, so it was nice & quiet. We started off with the Tuna Tartar, jumbo shrimp cocktail (excellent!), king crab legs (excellent!) and raw oysters. Appetizers were overall great. Then came the salad and lobster bisque (excellent). The salad was horrible. I could not believe they would serve this. The lettuce was wilted and none of them crunchy. All of us left the salad, yet the waiter did not realize, or maybe did not care. Either way, it was a major disappointment. 2/4 of the steaks were considerably undercooked. Souffle was great. Overall, major disappointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/29/2008
    This time, Morton's really did live up to their claim of being "the best place for prime steaks anywhere". We had the 48-ounce Porterhouse, which represents the quintessence of wretched excess. The steak was perfectly cooked, and the strip half was almost as tender as the tenderloin half. We selected a "Morton's exclusive" :) meritage, by the glass, that proved excellent. The grilled balsamic asparagus was worthy of the steak, though the other sides (hash browns, garlic green beans) less so. In any case, your're there for the steak, and the steak is the best to be had.

    I have been here before and have always have had good treatment. By using Open Table, I was able to let them know it was a special occasion (husbands birthday) and he really wanted a good Prime Rib dinner. Mortons called me that afternoon to confirm the Prime Rib and what type of cut he wanted. I have never had that happen before. When we ordered he asked for the Prime Rib the waitress said they were sold out. When I told her about the earlier call, she said wonderful, that means they reserved one for him. I was so glad they had called - all he wanted for his birthday was a good Prime Rib and he got one. Thanks much for making my dining experience a great one.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/22/2008
    I used to eat at steakhouses like Morton's in the 1980s. The meat was clearly better. Now all steakhouses, including Morton's, leave fat and gristle on fillets and my favorite, New York steaks. I had to spit out an un-chewable bite (discreetly!), and my wife said she did also. Well, prime and choice grades have been compromised thanks to the beef industry, so what can you expect? Fork tender fillets of yesteryear are sweet memories...and maybe labeled "kobe" and cost a hundred bucks.

    While our server was very friendly, she was very slow to pour the wine. We had 2 bottles for the table (5 people) and we would try to fill our glasses but the server would get offended but was no where to be found when we needed a refill. The worst part was that 2 of our 5 steaks had to be sent back. They were very rare (we wanted them medium) and by the time they were done, the others had finished their food. We were disapointed, having had a great time at the Vegas location last month.

    I had a nice evening with my mom. Morton's has always treated me well, but for my mom's first time, it was o.k. Her filet was very very rare and cold. I had beefing this place up for a while and when you spend good money at a place, you want no flaws. Other than that, it was a nice setting, the wait staff was on the ball, I just wish I would have gotten the really rare one, not my mom. Thanks, Jason rivman962001@yahoo.com

    Morton's is about great steak, and doesn't disappoint. The "live" menu presentation is great, and the service was wonderful. Portions are large, so sharing is a great idea. The $25 corkage is a bit high and, considering the already high prices for items, this could be reduced.

We had let them know in advance that we were celebrating my mother inlaw Remy's birthday and when we arrived they greeted her happy birthday, had a menus printed that said happy birthday Remy, and also took a nice photo of all of us at the dinner table and put it in a holder in which they wrote happy birthday Remy. All in all a great dining experience.

    Experince was great.and unique. This is the first place Ilve been to that did not give you a menu at first, they explain the food first, then show you the meat and seafood selection first, then the'll give you a menu. Very romantic scenery. Also, there was a board meeting the same night and it took them awhile to bring our food out. my girlfriend and I did not notice how long we where waiting for the food since we were having a good time conversating but they did and they apologize for long wait and they didn't charge us for one of our plate and gave us free desert. That was the very first time ilve been to a restuarant and actuallly have them notice that we were waiting a long time to be served. Usually the customer will notice that first.
