    My first experience at Morton’s was amazing that’s why I came back the second time for restaraunt week. It took somebody 30 mins to come to our table. The salad dressing was so salty and cream spinach was so watery and tasteless. I wanted to get up and leave and go to Ruth Chris. My server, the African American girl was nice about the situation but I’ll probably never come back to this location.

    Service wasnt good, took 30 minutes to get a second glass of water. My lemon drop cocktail was supposed to come with a sugar rim and it came with a salt rim. When I told the waitress she took it and it seemed like they just rubbed the salt off and put sugar on because it still tasted salty. The food itself wasn’t nearly as good as it should be to warrant the price. Id stay away from anything except the lobster bisque.

    The worst service ever. Steak dropped on my guest and his briefcase, disappearing water, reaching across the table for every bit of service. The absolute worst service at any place ever

    The food was great, on par with what you'd expect from a fine steakhouse. The french onion soup was exceptional, as was the filet mignon and key lime pie. Our server Carolyn was also very attentive and her team coordinated well together.

    Cajun Ribeye is my fave, Mortons hits the mark every time with it. Tried the house chips with blue cheese dip (super yummy), and a creamed spinach. Bartender made a spicy margarita.. ehh it was ok, lets just say i stuck with wine on my next round lol but the bartender, who doubled as my waiter was nice and never out of sight if i needed anything. Great experience yesterday.

    Was not happy with the service or food. We were never served bread to our table like everyone else. We ordered drinks before dinner and the appetizers came out before the drinks. Both steaks we ordered were not cooked correctly. They did remove one steak from our bill and gave us a free dessert, but would have preferred better service.

    Para empezar la temperatura del restaurante estaba demasiado alta, la calefacción estaba muy caliente y no se podía estar a gusto. Por otro lado la comida malísima, no era para nada la calidad de un Morton’s, el Rib-eye estaba insípido y seco, igual que el filet mignon el cual pedimos termino medio y lo tuvimos que regresar dos veces por que el término que lo sirvieron las dos veces fue bien cocido, tuvimos que cancelar el plato por que nada más no lo podían hacer bien. De igual manera el servicio lo que le sigue de malo, nadie te atendía, trajeron todo mal y lentísimo. Muy mal experiencia.

    Morton's should be a premier steakhouse with top notch service. Our steak was not cook to order - probably well done to more than well done, compared to the medium temperature we ordered. Yes the manager comped desserts and yes he gave us $25 off our next visit (we won't be back to that Morton's so I am not sure that the business card with handwritten notes will be used). Add to that the slow and confused service. In a quiet (half capacity) restaurant, the waiter was delayed enough between that more than once we were waiting to order drinks, appetizers and then our dessert. The waiter and manager did not talk with each out resolving the over done steak so I was the intermediary. In 20+ years of going to Morton's for all types of occasions this was the first I felt service was less that excellent or outstanding. I won't be back to this Morton's and would not recommend it to other's.

    We made a reservation to eat outside and the outdoor space isn’t actually open and it’s used for smokers. It was unbearable to be in that area with all that smoke. They never told me it was a cigar space, since smoking inside hasn’t been a thing since the 90s. The service was mediocre and so was the food. I wouldn’t come back here, don’t recommend.

    Good steakhouse food- incredibly small portions (lobster and steak), crab cake. Crab cocktail. Good portion and tasty miso sea bass. Way over-priced for what you get. Service top notch

    How can it keep getting better? The pork chop was perfectly prepared. A huge entree filled with flavor. My guest had the chicken which he raved about. Said it was too much and then proceeded to finish it once he got home. Spinach with mushrooms were a hit and the perfectly cooked asparagus. Oh and the shrimp cocktail—that was good to. From the host greeting to the outstanding bar staff, the excellent chef and team, it was once again a delightful and memorable dining experience.

    Firstly - the food was excellent. Well prepared and good portions. Service was excellent. But ultimately Morton’s was disappointing for a $500+ meal. Everyone had steaks (that’s why you go there) and the presentation was very poor. Just a steak in the middle of an oval plate. No presentation or garnishing at all. The steak (medium rare each one) was correctly cooked but there was no char on the outside - just a grey steak. I understand that sides are separate - so you can get exactly what you want - and that should be baked into the cost of the meal. But there should be something more for presentation/garnish when the meal is “presented”. The wine recommendation (they did not have what I originally selected) was excellent - but super expensive. I know this is typical for restaurants but there were wines on the menu that were 6 times the retail cost. No doubt the issue is the volume of the wine cellar - maybe slightly smaller selection and lower cost?

    Always a pleasure to dine at Morton's on Connecticut in NW Washington DC. The ambiance is fantastic, the food is always perfect and the service is great. Nehemiah did a great job making sure our orders were perfect and allowed us to relax and take it easy, very nice evening. From a corporation perspective, I've been saddened to learn that Corp no longer allows the Beverage mgr to schedule in localized spirits tastings, pre Covid we regularly attended Bourbon and Scotch tastings at this location...
