Morton's The Steakhouse - Carew Tower Ratings and Reviews
Food was bad service was worse. Never got dessert. We ordered a piece of carrot cake at 6:30 knowing we had to leave at 7:00 to get to the theater. At 7:05 we asked for the check and knowing we were already late leaving we had to wait while the mgr hand wrote a card for a free dessert on our next visit which is never. A $60 steak should melt in your mouth, this steak was not as good as a $20 steak at the Texas Road House. Never return.
I generally like Morton's, but was not impressed with staffing. There was just something missing, even though it was a good experience. Maybe an off night. We heard a lot of "I'm sorry" and it wasn't for actual service, but more tardiness. It wasn't something we even noticed that was lacking or slow.
We were greeted and seated in an utmost timely manner with the reservation time honored about 10 minutes ahead of schedule. The Sommelier was outstanding, directing us to a wine of superb choice for our evening. The menu is a-la-carte as most competitive restaurants are. The food quality was high, including steaks, salads, bread, sides, and desserts. The waiter was engaging, caring, and timely in all regards of the evening. To top it off, we were seated window side overlooking Fountain Square, a nice touch to the meal!
We went to have Thanksgiving and I think our server wanted to be home rather than work. For the level this restaurant was suppose to be, he was very inattentive and did not give any information on how the food is prepared, even when we asked. Doubt we will return.
The food at Morton's is spectacular. The service was less than impeccable. My fiance and I were dining with another couple. We had a bottle of wine, they each ordered beers. The wine arrived in a reasonable time, but the beers took over 20 minutes. The place was maybe 25% occupied on a Saturday evening, had they been busy, long ticket times for bar drinks would be more understandable. After we finished our meals, a gentleman, I assume was an assistant manager, came by to ask how everything was. We told him that the food was delicious, and he offered to package my finace's remaining filet and potatoes, to which she responded yes. While we spoke with him, our server came around to clear plates, and they walked off together. Apparently their was some miscommunication, as no one ever returned with the food. Though the service was sub-par, the rest of the experience was great.
Unfortunately had a bad experience here. I ordered a filet, medium rare. Definitely was over cooked. Even the waiter saw that. Offered another. Medium rare in the center, burned and dry on the outside. I gave up. Didn’t want to ruin the whole night. Took it home and gave it to the cat. Will never go back.
Meal cost $350 for 2 entrees, 2 appetizers, a chopped salad; steamed spinach and 3 drinks.
The bread was the consistency of store bought dinner rolls and flavorless; the butter was greasy and had no butter flavor; shrimp was overcooked and tough; escargot were overcooked and tough; chopped salad was minced. The good: filet was tender and flavorful; the pasta that came with the scampi was very flavorful; they carry Rogue deadman maibok!
Our waiter was a bit pretentious but became more personable after he noticed his 20% tip, but ought to have been genuine throughout the meal.
mashed potatoes were not seasoned with salt or pepper; short rib tacos very dry; chicken christopher, not seasoned, dry; asparagus no seasoning; 1 guest at table stated well vodka & soda, which was specific, and our server did not state what Mortons pour as a well vodka. She read her check and was charged for grey goose; The server should have stated that the grey goose WAS THE WELL, if it really was the well....please train your servers to be informative so that a guest/guests do not walk out and talk to others- "I will never go back to Mortons"
I believe the restaurant was three star dining at four star pricing. I expect to pay top dollar for a meal at a restaurant in this category. What I also expect is to be "wowed" in some form or another. We were served ordinary food plated well. Service was average at best.
My husband and I love steak, especially filets! He decided to surprise me with a date to Morton's tonight. I guess we're just spoiled by Ruby's and the fact that I cook an amazing filet perfectly seasoned and seared on cast iron because we are extremely unsatisfied with the steaks tonight. My husband ordered the bone in filet and I had a center cut filet. His was cooked to the correct temperature but lacked flavor, he says I cook a better steak and I'd have to say I agree. My steak was also cooked as ordered but looked more like a thin sirloin than the thick filet I was expecting, it also lacked flavor, luckily I had bearnaise to improve the taste. Our truffle fries were also barely room temperature. We also watched our food almost get delivered to the wrong table. I also find it interesting that a manager never stopped by our table to thank us for dining and ask how our meal was. When someone is paying $250 for dinner, it should be perfect. The wedge salad was the highlight of the meal
My wife and I were downtown Cincinnati during a festival. OpenTable got us a table in 20 minutes, which was perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail. The bar at Morton's is fantastic. Large selection of most everything including Bourbon. We migrated over for dinner, which was excellent! My wife had the the Filet with truffle butter. I had the bone-in Ribeye, which was excellent "Medium". If you can reserve a table early, I would suggest a booth that overlooks Fountain Square, very nice view!
This is the second year in a row going to Morton's for Wedding Anniversary. Very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. Service is great. Appetizers, main course, and dessert were all delicious.
Recommend getting a table over booth. (Booth's are comfortable, but seem awkward facing everyone in the restaurant )
Went to celebrate a friends birthday. Worst experience EVER. Server was smug and flippant. One guests’ order came out completely and wrong and manager and server were both very dismissive. I had previously dined with Morton’s numerous times, dating back to their old location. I will not be returning.
The food was unacceptable. My bisque was watered down, the meat was grainy and without much flavor. The asparagus I asked for as well done, was very close to raw and the sauce that accompied it was almost tasteless. The chocolate mousse had a strong aftertaste. I was there for restaurant week but even with that taken into consideration, I expected more. A chain restaurant is just a chain restaurant even when it is very expensive.
Great dinner and service... until the end. Crowd started to pick up and things went down hill. Long wait for desert and follow up. Not sure what happened because earlier in the evening the service was attentive. Everyone who came in after us was finished sooner than us. It did not spoil the evening but it was hard to figure out who dropped the ball.
We were passing through Cincinnati and stopped by. Everyone was great especially Mr. Krouse (spelling?), the manager. He engaged my 6 year old who was excited to report about his dad's new car :)
The food was excellent. I particularly liked the vegetable sides and the option for a simple raspberry dessert which was not loaded with calories and sugar!
Thank you very much!
