This was our first visit to any Morton’s. As far as Cincinnati steakhouses go, we frequent Ruth’s Chris about once a month and a Ruby’s restaurant for special occasions. I had heard great reviews about Morton’s so we decided to switch it up this year. Made a reservation day of, as dinner was a last minute change of plans. We arrived a little early and were seated immediately. Now where I was most impressed — I had noted in the reservation that it was for a 30th birthday. We were handed menus that had “Happy 30th Birthday” at the top with the date. That attention to detail is AMAZING, and something that I’ve raved to everyone about since. What a way to make your guests feel special. Now the meal: we started off with drinks and shortly after ordered dinner. Filet is our steak of choice anywhere we go, so that’s what we both got. I was surprised to see that it came with mashed potatoes and also a choice of a side. Mashed potatoes ARE a side. So he ordered corn and I ordered steamed broccoli (extra steamed). I was baffled when the filet came out served OVER the mashed potatoes. When I eat a good filet, I don’t want a fork full of mashed potatoes with it. I made a comment it reminded me of a country fried steak meal. Regardless, the steak was “ok”, not the best I’ve ever had but also not the worst by any means. The mashed potatoes were tasty. The corn was great. The “extra steamed” broccoli was still crunchy and had a bit of an “off” taste so we didn’t eat much of that. Dessert next: cheesecake for me and chocolate mousse for him. Wow, I was blown away. My cheesecake must’ve been “Creme brûlée” cheesecake and it was delicious. His chocolate mousse was so rich and decadent, he couldn’t even finish it (yay for me!). Overall, our bill was $160 — a little more than we spend at Ruth’s yet less than we spend at Ruby’s. I was pleased with the atmosphere, ecstatic about the personal touch on the menus, indifferent on the main course food, and super happy with the desserts.

This was my wife and my first outing since February. Since we our both immuno- compromised we were nervous but excited to celebrate our anniversary. Mortin's did a great job in distancing and making us feel safe. Our only concern and an area to improve on were the number of customers leaving their tables to go to the restroom etc. and not putting their mask on as required. Being in the medical field we both understand how important and necessary that is.
Sarah was awesome and we would request her anytime we dine at Mortin's.

Went there for my birthday dinner. Was not disappointed. The fillet was so tender it melted in my mouth. The server recommended the Keylime pie for dessert and it was amazing. Always a memorable meal. The service was fantastic as well. Fernando did an excellent job of catering to our every need

Son’s birthday turned 11 but never the less they did know or care to acknowledge the fact,
My wife was the first one to enter the restaurant with reservations the host fail to acknowledge.
The seating was less desirable being the first to arrive and be seated by the kitchen when premium seating was available.
The carpet was not clean and the food was substandard and didn’t match the restaurant’s pricing menu, some side ordered vegetables seem to be frozen like the creamed spinach.
The only great thing about the restaurant was a young lady Bridget the only compassionate person employee is the only reason we stayed and paid for this experience.

Morton's is thankfully back and as good as ever. Lots of new staff who are still learning it seems but they are getting there. A little disappointed in their COVID response; seemed a bit crowded to enable distancing

Horrible service and we were rushed out of there. I was able to make a reservation for 7:45 after sitting down and finding bread in my water glass we were finally able to get our drinks we wanted to enjoy them for a few minutes before ordering. The manager ran over to tell us they had already closed because of Father’s Day and we needed to order because the cooks haven’t been home since 10 am. If they would have informed us prior to making the reservation I would have never made it for 7:45. We rushed to order and then our escargot came out burnt. They proceeded to turn out all the table lighting around us so we had to hurry and choke down our dinner. I wish I would have received a simple call informing me they were closing early so my guest and I could have enjoyed our $500 dinner. Will not be returning.

Slow service. Didn’t bring drinks. Others were served well before us even though we were seated much earlier. Food was very good. There are too many steak house options to go back for this type of service..... especially when you pay a premium for the food. Won’t be returning.

From the moment we walked in, it was awkward. The steps were dirty leading all the way to the top- definitely looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed in several weeks. Service was decent- server was pleasant but not very knowledgeable. Steak and lobster were dry- drinks were good. Staff wore homemade masks and they didn’t require guests to.

We dined here for my 40th Birthday. The hostess took a cute picture of us and made a Birthday Card for me, it was signed by the staff. I thought this personal touch was very sweet and stood out above other places we have celebrated special occasions in the passed. Our service was amazing and our food (we ordered Filets) was delicious. When we were getting our coats from coat check the GM asked us if we were staying downtown, we told him we were staying at the Hyatt. He offered to walk us back through the Carew Tower himself so we didn’t have to pay for another Lyft. We both felt like we were treated like special guests and we will definitely be back for more Sangria and fresh baked bread. I can’t say enough good things about Morton’s!

An early Saturday night reservation. Food was very good. Service was not as attentive as you expect from a Morton’s. Seafood tower appetizer was average. Lobster bisque was excellent. Filets were a little above average. Dining room noisy and service was lacking for drinks and water. Slow on the courses. There is a reason why you can’t get a reservation at Ruby’s and you can at Morton’s

When we first entered, there was a strong odor in the entryway. Not sure if they recently had the stairs shampooed or what, but the smell was noxious. When we reached the restaurant upstairs the smell of the grill hit us and it was wonderful. Our server, Jay, was good. He advised us on some menu items and was attentive and helpful. Our steaks were just steak. I was expecting a bit more, but perhaps that was my own fault for ordering a sirloin. My wife had a filet and mentioned the same thing. Just a steak.

This is the first less-than-expected experience in a number of trips to this establishment. The service was very slow and we sat there for 20 minutes before we even got our drinks. When the food finally arrived - after prodding that we had a tight timeline for a show - the food was room temperature. It was clear the food sat for a while. It was disappointing. We will problably give it another try, but definitely not worth the $600 price tag.

The food was excellent. I had the Sea Bass since I’m not a big meat eater. It was cooked perfect. We also had shrimp cocktail as an appetizer also good. The Brussel sprouts were a good side order if you aren’t in to potatoes or other carb heavy sides. They do need to modernize the menu for people who aren’t meat and potato eaters. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and would come more often if the menu had some healthier options or even a vegetarian option. We eat out many times a week and overall it was a nice experience.

I expected more from a restaurant of this caliber.
We've been to plenty of steak joints throughout the US and this is by far the worst steak I've had.
No flavor, just char. Salad was mediocre at best. I feel like we were ripped off.
A waste of $200!
