Morton's The Steakhouse - Chicago - The Original Ratings and Reviews
It’s no surprise why Morton’s has been around so long. As with past visits, it was one of the best meals I’ve had. The petite filet is flavorful and melts in the mouth. The side dishes are large enough for 2-3 people. Order the Au Gratin potatoes! Wow! Our server Maria was knowledgeable, attentive and personable. We were too full for dessert and left sinfully happy with full bellys.
Awful. The waiter recommended we have our steaks cooked medium rare for more flavor. We ordered medium rare. My bone in rib eye was well done and charred on the edges. My husband’s strip steak was also ordered medium rare and it was delivered medium. We each had over cooked steaks, 2 soups, 1 creamed spinach, and 1 dessert, plus 2 martinis. The bill was over $300.00. It ended up being very expensive dog food because we couldn’t eat the steaks. It was not the first time we had dinner there. It will be the last.
Everything went fine at the beginning with my party getting a nice booth. And our food was excellent. However, there were large noisy groups all around. AND I specifically mentioned on Open Table that it was a birthday and requested they make it special for the birthday girl with singing, etc. I also mentioned it when we came in to the hostesses. We ordered 3 Soufflés and thought for sure that there would be a candle in one. This did not happen and there was no singing eventhough this occurred at other tables. This was very disappointing. When I complained without the Birthday girl realizing this, our waiter came over and took our picture which he put in a Morton’s keepsake paper frame. This was nice but too little, too late.
Overall, the food was great. But the service was poor. After we were seated, we waited for 15 minutes. Finally, I had to ask someone for a menu. I was surprised since the restaurant was not busy and there were open tables available. It would have been great if the manager came by and apologize for the wait. There was no service recovery on the manager or the wait staff. Luckily, Chicago has multiple great steak restaurants and I am not limited to eating only at Morton's. I will not come back due to the poor service received.
The Ribeye I order was not what I requested. It’s was my birthday and I requested a steak with a lot of marbling in it. The steak was a lean piece of leather. I was so disappointed. The chef should have informed the waitress before he even cooked the steak. I should have gone to Ruth Chris like I originally planned. What a Birthday flop!
The chopped salad was good. The mashed potatoes were disappointing (I’ve had better at Dublin’s) the filet Oscar style wasn’t bad but there was not enough bearnaise sauce.
The molten chocolate cake dessert was good.
They were short staffed (no busboy) so the server was a bit frazzled.
Authentic upscale Chicago steak house with a clubby atmosphere. Enter through office building doors and descend the stairs into an underground carnivore heaven. The stairwell is lined with photographs of visiting celebrities, many from the restaurant's glory days. Now seems to attract an older crowd. We were greeted by the original manager, Rocky, who started on Morton's opening day in 1978. It's a quiet restaurant, still serving impressive steaks, chops, and seafood. After cocktails, my wife and I shared a boneless New York strip steak and onion rings. Doesn't get much better than that. If you're looking for a high-energy, vibrant spot, keep looking. If, however, you want to experience a wonderful Chicago steakhouse with a vibe from the '70s and '80s, you'll find it at the Original Morton's. Bon appetit!
Since there Lawry's takeover this restaurant has gone down drastically. They are WAY OVERPRICED FOR WHAT YOU GET. We had the 16 oz. sirloin, $ 63.00, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. And it was tasteless and mediocre. Will never go back again. Wake Up.
We had a terrific experience at The Original Morton's Steakhouse in Chicago. Overall the food was prepared to order but even the food paled in comparison to the spectacular service we received from our server, Suzanne. She was so attentive and friendly. She made us feel as if we were the most important people in the world. Clearly she enjoys the “people” aspect of her position. She absolutely made our night! If you want a terrific meal go to Morton's. If you want an experience, ask to be served by Suzanne.
Morton's defines a good steak and they didn't disappoint. The food (I highly recommend the Tuna Tower as an appetizer to share) was great and then, of course there were the steaks. The service was wonderful. They really make you feel at home. One great Chicago restaurant.
Good service, atmosphere, and nice selection on the menu. Thought the crab legs were a little pricey at the $66 market price for 1 lb., so I opted for the for the 2 lb. lobster special. Was a little disappointed, as some bites were better than others. I think a smaller lobster is better tasting. It was still a nice dining experience, but wouldn't go with the 2 lb. lobster again.
Service fell short of what was expected. Started with the reception, or lack there of. Hostess greeted us but never managed our arrival. Manager was just as bad when I made a remark that I wasn't sure what was happening since nobody was really seating us or telling us to wait. The food was average at best, 2# lobster didn't have any taste and was a bit over cooked. Hubby said bonein ribeye was okay but looked better than it tasted.
The guy bringing the food to the table next to us let his suit jacket completely go through our butter when his butt was brushing up against our table.
This Mortons is defiantly more casual and less professional than other Mortons I've been to in other cities. It's nothing better than a fancy Red Lobster.
Martini's were wonderful and the food, Caesar salads, filets and hash browns was very good. We were there on a Tuesday night but there were only about a dozen people in the place. It must be due to all the newer restaurants in the same area. If you don't care about the people watching and want a good, strong drink and steak, this is the place to go. We had a fun time!
We went to the one on Wacker in error. It was my husband's birthday and the hostess staff was great- printed menus on the fly with his name on them. The service was downhill from there and I'm communicating this directly with the restaurant. Food was not good enough for the price point and level of competition in Chicago- our first major disappointment in a very long time.
