    As we have been there several times, not one time ever disappointed. We have usually asked for Max, when possible, they have always been happy to abide. He's just an Awesome server and not only his knowledge of the entire menu but helpful if we request something different with our food. My friend has shellfish allergies and he as remembered from the first time. Can't thank him enough for his concern and making us comfortable each trip. Also a Very polite young man. Thanks

    Service and atmosphere were great. One of our steaks was way undercooked. Sent it back and it still wasn’t cooked enough. The order was a filet mignon, medium-well done. It bled on the plate as served, then extremely red after it was sent back. Very expensive to make this issue.

    I ate here, it's wasn't bad, but not nearly as good as it should have been. Service was both arrogant and ignorant. I remember... the basement, the black tie, the elegant. We are a long way from those days. Do we now cater to the lowest common dominator, or do we ascribe to be something greater? I'm afraid it's the former... Grow up, be who you are. Demand more.

    We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary and received tremendous service from Alexis & Noah (trainee). Enjoyed the Prime Ribeye & NY Strip Steaks and added on the Black Truffle Butter & Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops. Sides were excellent (Baked Corn soufflé & Au Gratin Potatoes). The Morton’s Hot Chocolate Cake was a perfect ending to the meal. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the view of Fountain Square. Parked in a nearby underground garage for only $9. Valet Parking was $12.

    We had an excellent dinner. Everything was wonderful. Our server had great recommendations. It was quiet for a Friday evening and everything we ordered was amazing. Passionfruit Margarita was amazing, we did the poke tuna and caprese salad for starters. My husband had the pork chop and said it was the best pork chop he has ever had and my filet was on point. We added scallops to our entrees instead of a side and it was a perfect amount of food. We did not order dessert though. Highly recommend for a date night or special occasion! 10/10

    Service was inattentive and very slow. The sea bass was rubbery, fishy tasting, and cold. The quality of the food and service has really gone downhill which is very sad, because Morton’s has always been our favorite date night spot. Very disappointed!

    Was sat directly next to the stair well. Felt a gust of freezing air every time the door opened. Took forever to get drinks from the bar. Sat with empty glasses 3x including extended period of time. Steak was charcoaled on the outside and rare on the inside was supposed to be medium rare. Very poor explaining of menu & special At the end the waiter went to take away the Steak plate was told we wanted to take it home. He gave us the one piece of meet on the plate when the bone had 1/2 to inch of meat left on it. When he finally returned we asked were our bone was it had sig meat on it and bone was for dog. He left & returned with a bone that was not ours. That we had to argue and show pictures of bone shape & how much meat we had left it was someone else’s left over. They did make it right by giving a ny strip steak to replace.

    The overall experience was very good. It was our anniversary and they made sure to make it a special occasion for us. The scallops, ahi tuna poke, bone in rib-eye, and the lamb chops were delicious. We got the au gratin potatoes which were also very good but slightly under seasoned for our taste. Surprisingly, we asked for two drinks the bar did not have. They were kind enough to give us a chocolate lava cake dessert that we also enjoyed. The atmosphere was relaxed and we did not feel rushed at all. The lighting and sound levels are perfect compared to some other restaurants we have been to lately.

    We had a fantastic dinner. The epic ocean platter was impressive and the portions were generous for a party of four. Our teenage daughters enjoyed the mocktails and the Mortinis were great. Steaks were perfectly cooked and the sides were decadent. Fantastic atmosphere and service.

My husband asked about a side he asked if he could get wolithout something he was telling her ok she grab our menus and walked off we never got the side. Our service was awful

    Long story short, we won’t be back. Awful service, especially at the bar. Over priced for the quality of drinks & food. Not clean - plates & glassware were dirty. No manager quality check-ins like most true steakhouses. I found myself looking across the street at Ruby’s wishing I would’ve gone there instead. Aside from the decent steak & lobster, this is buffet food at best. Honestly, the Valet kids might be the best part of this restaurant; primarily because walking through fountain square is a bit of a gamble right now. Can’t believe this place made it through Covid.

    I reserved to sit in a booth but got put in the back corner near where the dirty dishes got pushed…manager told use we couldn’t be moved. No cutlery or handkerchiefs were presented…manager didn’t say a word, he just threw the menus on the table and walked away…took 20 minutes for the server to come. I decided to leave after the terrible experience

    Took longer to get a drink, then to make a steak. The steak was burnt on the outside and blue rare in the middle. I get they were busy. But the rest of the food tasted rushed as well. Which sucks, because I’ve had great food and service before there.

    I have never been more disappointed in a steakhouse before. We had a reservation but did not get seated for 40 minutes after that time. The filet mignon was grainy. The mashed potatoes tasted like they were instant mashed potatoes. They sat us at a table that was small enough to be a children’s table. We paid more per person than what we have previously at a much nicer restaurant.

    I hate to give a lower review this time, but I wasn’t impressed by my last visit. It was Valentine’s Day, so the chaos of the holiday could have set the staff back. The courses weren’t timed the best and the food was good, but not the quality and tase that we typically get when we go here. Talking with some of the staff, they mentioned they overbooked, hoping people wouldn’t show. I understand the practice, however, mentioning it to the patrons when the food/service is not up to the typical standard may not be a best practice. I will be back at a later date, but will steer clear during holidays or busy nights downtown.

    First time ever visiting the establishment, definitely would not recommend going around holidays, especially not Valentine’s Day. Paid over $230 for a table no bigger than a spare car tire. Only table in the building I seen that small, couldn’t even order dessert if we wanted to cause everything kept falling off the table. It was so bad the server even had to take the bread back simply because there was no room! My fiancé and I were not only embarrassed but also disappointed overall. We ended up boxing up our food and left. If your menu won’t fit on the table you probably shouldn’t offer it.

    The reputation of this chain precedes itself. Amazing food. Well worth the price. Loved the atmosphere. Our server overall was excellent. He kind of took a long time on a drink we ordered. My only bone to pick was the size of the table they sat us at. The vast majority of the tables could easily seat four people. But there’s a section of these little two-seater, round tables that felt more like sitting at a kid’s table. It was so small we had to lay our menus on the floor beside us because they were bigger than the table. And every time our server brought us anything we had to play a game of connect four with our glasses and plates just to make room. When servers brought food to customers at other tables like ours they had to stand there and help move things around on their table to make room. It was very surprising that someone running a restaurant with the reputation of Morton’s would think these tables were a good idea. Perfect for kids. Adults? Not so much. We actually held back on our orders because we knew it all wouldn’t fit on our table. Otherwise, great dining experience thanks to the food and our server.

    My husband won a gift card for Morton's at a golf outing last year and we decided to give it a try. We sat in the bar area so we could watch the UK game. The ambiance was good. My husband ordered the ribeye which was cooked to perfection and I had the lump crab cakes. They were also delicious. As were the au gratin potatoes with gouda and bacon. Yum! Service was excellent even though they were down a bartender.
