    It was father's day and it appears they did not have enough kitchen staff on duty. Food took an extra long time to come out and when it came out everything was cold, one steak was not cooked properly. I ordered the wagu filet. I normally oder wagu cuts at a steakhouse that have it, however this was not wagu. It appears they attempted to pass off filet mignon as wagu. The bright spot was our waitress and management. They did not make excuses for the issues and took care of the bill accordingly. Maybe it was just an off night. We will try again.

    Morton’s is always my “go to” for birthdays, Father’s Day, etc but this location was disappointing. Service was slow and inattentive and location was loud, despite being early and empty. Strangely enough, no changing tables in men’s or women’s bathroom - which made taking care of my son fairly difficult. Expected better.

    During this trip, I sat at the bar with Gabby. She was fantastic. Gabby was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, and suggested the wag yu filet, which was melt in your mouth delicious. This shrimp Alexander was superb as well. Morton’s never disappoints.

    We took my mother in law here for Mother’s Day, and the service was terrible. Now I 100% understand that it was possibly one of the busiest days. However, our reservation was at 3:30, we were about 10 minutes late and we’re seated at 3:45, perfect! Except we didn’t receive a drink until 5pm!! We were literally sitting there with our waiter no where to be found. Then we finally got drinks after I had to pull, who looked like the manager, over to ask for them. We then ordered our main meals, that took another hour to hit the table. My lobster was cold, and 3 of our steaks extremely undercooked(I’m pregnant and was told by my doctor I can’t eat raw meat). To be honest what made it worse was that we were seated by the open kitchen, where the staff looked more flustered than ever trying to decide who’s food went where. We didn’t end up leaving the restaurant until 7:15pm. The food was good but they lost major points for very poor service. It was especially disappointing because our meal came to $600 and I don’t think it was worth it. We won’t be returning!

    Waiter was distracted and poor! Did not check back to see if what was ordered was received. 3 of 5 sides not brought to table. 2 kid's cheeseburger meals were $50 and cheese was forgotten when finally received. Mgr tried to fix, but Morton's charges too much money for poor service, poor food and not having a smoke-free environment. Smoking was allowed on patio, and patio door was left open to dining room! Horrible environment and will not return!

    Fabulous service from our Server Simon. The ceasar salad and wedge, as well as our cocktails were fantastic. Our filets were all cooked to perfection with regard to temperature, but we’re quite over seasoned with salt for all in our party. The rest of the filet was cooked so beautifully we worked around the exterior. Simon offered to have another filet prepared for me but since all at the table felt theirs were also over powered by salt, we decided not to endure the wait and were satisfied in the end. All in all, great dinner and professional, enjoyable service. Thank you.

My father, son, and I came in for lunch on Easter and Roberto was knowledgeable about the menu, made great suggestions, and most of all was incredibly patient with us. He is the server that defines exceptional service! I hope to have him as my server again on the next visit.

    Despite the meat being good (not marvelous, but good), the service was catastrophic. We asked for cocktail drinks to have it before the meal. But, before we had 1/3 the glass, the waitress brought the main course and the wine! We ended up eating the steak cold, because we wanted to finish the cocktails before the meal, so we could enjoy the meat with red wine. The waitress was also on hurry to offer us desert before we could have finished the wine. Overall, it was a terrible service, on a hurry, for a very expensive meal.

    We came to Morton’s to celebrate our grandson’s birthday. After refusing to be seated in the cigar section, I made the front desk aware that we were part of the Landry group. All of a sudden a table was made available in the dining room, which they previously said was not available. We were seated and felt rushed the whole time we were there. Three out of the four steaks were served cold. So cold that the truffle butter didn’t even melt on top of the steak. Before we finished our entrees, the server wanted to remove the bread and our sides. We asked them not to so we could continue our meal. The restaurant was only half full and couldn’t understand what the rush was all about. Our ages ranged from 21 to 73. We’re frequent diners at Morton’s wherever we travel. We were just in Palm Desert and frequented that Morton’s several times. The quality and attention to detail is superior there. We left a 20% tip and won’t return to the Washington DC restaurant

    It is a beautiful restaurant. My family and I went out for dinner to celebrate my birthday. My waitress was so lovely, she kept checking in on us to make sure everything was ok, and The food was delicious. I was looking at the drink menus, and they didn't have any mocktails, and my waitress noticed, and she made me one personally, and it was just so doubtful. My only complaint is that it was a little bit chilly. I just wished it was a little bit warmer inside the restaurant.

    What an improvement rotating out the past few managers. This Morton's is beginning to return to the grand and personal service we'd come to enjoy before the pandemic. Corporate continues its heavy anti customer hand squeezing unearned dollars from inexperienced guests, imposing regimen where hospitality should come first. A limited menu and lower quality provisions now rule, but our server and the outdoor patio sucked us in. It's the only game in town if you want to enjoy cigars and a group who enjoy male cigar smokers.
