    Fits in well in DC, formal, but great place. Outside is more casual, outside deck restaurant is rare in DC. Great steaks and sides. Key lime pie is amazing as well.

    The service was fantastic. Personally, I feel there are better establishments out there for the money. The creamed spinach was a bit watery, the steak was prepared perfectly but fell short on taste and flavor. The potatoes au-gratin were the best part of the meal aside from the cocktails. Would likely not return.

    This was our first experience at Morton’s and it was fabulous. Our steaks were perfectly prepared, the spinach and mashed potatoes were delicious and the key lime pie and crème brûlée were scrumptious too. The filets mignons were the star of the show, tender and flavorful, and cooked to perfection. A special shout out to Tee for his amazing and professional table service from start to finish, and to Simon for his friendly conversation and attentiveness as well. We felt very taken care of, and we will be back for sure. I highly recommend Morton’s for a top notch steak dinner and excellent service!

    Very disappointing, especially given the expensive a la carte menu. For the price and a supposedly high end steak house I expected my filet to be very tender and cooked correctly. Neither occurred. It was not tough but certainly not close to what it should have been and more medium than medium rare as ordered. The server was inexperienced, inattentive, and made errors in our sides ordered. This of course could be an isolated issue, not necessarily indicative of all servers. Ambiance was a positive. Otherwise there are better choices.

    I ordered a 12 oz filet mignon cooked medium and the first cut was deep red rare. I asked if it could cooked medium and the waitress said "ok let me see if the kitchen can do that". It comes back cooked well done, no pink at all. The manager offers to take it back again, I decline and eat the steak because I'm pretty hungry by this point. So he says let me see what I can do with the check. The check comes, nothing is comped and I don't see the manager again.
