Food was good. Steak grilled correctly and appetizers were ok. Salad left a few things to be desired for the price, but otherwise edible.
Avoid the desserts - especially the chocolate souffle. The latter is nothing but an indeterminable mass of mostly under-cooked cake mix.

We go to many restaurants of this type (Ruth's Chris, Capital Grille), and this restaurant does not compare. Several areas of disappointment include signature onion topped bread was not fresh, lobster bisque was average, and porterhouse for 2 had large sections of “grizzle.” We mentioned a few of our comments to our server. She indicated that she was sorry we were disappointed. Also if note, we have no issue with the prices at this restaurant, as long as the quality of food and service is deserving ... in this restaurant, such is not the case.

We have been to Morton's in the past and enjoyed it, which is why we picked it this week for an important family event. There were 5 of us, including a family member who came all the way from Philadelphia. To our great disappointment, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. we had a show to go to, so we planned accordingly and allowed 90 minutes for the restaurant. However, we did not anticipate that we would have to wait more than 35 minutes for the appetizers ( 2 house salads). When that happened, we advised the waiter that we needed to leave within an hour and he assured us that the main courses are ready. We urged him to just bring them to the table right away. Two of the main courses were brought in 15 minutes later, the other 3 - 10 more minutes later, and 2 of the 3 sides dishes yet 10 minutes after that. So by the time the sides arrived, the first two main courses were cold.
To top it off, several of the orders were wrong. One of us asked to not have goat cheese in her salad and the other to have the sauce on the side. Both of those were ignored. The filet mignon and the rib eye were salty as if someone has poured an entire salt shaker on them - we could not eat them. And the third side dish never arrived. Our waiter never came back to ask us how the food was. He zipped in and out and ignored our calls out to him. We had to call another waiter to let them know.
During the initial introduction, our waiter listed the available deserts that included soufles. We showed interest in the soufles, and although he did not bring it up, we asked him if those had to be ordered in advance and he recalled that they indeed needed to be ordered with the main dishes. However, when he came back to take our orders for the main dishes he never asked us about deserts.
The assistant manager did come by to apologize. He generously waved off all charges except for the wine. However - how do you recover an upsetting evening that ruined our family gathering?

The waiters attentiveness was excellent. The food was mediocre, Morton's salad was drenched with blue cheese dressing and was flavorless. Steak was very hot and cooked to perfection. The key lime pie could use some work, not much taste. And the orange spritz cocktail tasted like it was straight out of a medicine cabinet. Overall price was good since it was restaurant week. The service was exceptional, five stars!! The dinner was meh, could use some flavor. Maybe I'm just use to Ruth Chris. 4 out of 5 stars. I would go back though.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant to the minute we left- our experience was 5 Star. This was an anniversary dinner for my husband and I- that we booked on our 3 day trip to DC (traveling from NY) and we brought along our 3 month old son. Both the hostess and our waiter said “Happy Anniversary” upon our arrival and even our menus had “Happy Anniversary” printed at the top. The food was AMAZING, from the bread to the French onion soup, to the filet with blue cheese butter on top. Everything was impecible. We were also lucky to be dining during restaurant week- which was an amazing offer- but even without the special this restaurant would have been well worth the cost. At the end of our meal the hostess came over, took a picture of myself, my husband, and our son who had just woken up from a nice nap- and gave us a printed copy in a Morton’s frame book that said “Happy Anniversary” with the date. It wa such a thoughtful gesture and really showed how they went above and beyond to make our meal memorable. Will be recommending to everyone! Thank you Morton’s DC for one of the best dinners we’ve had! Looking forward to visiting the NY location soon as well!

The service was slow and even with a party of 10 they managed to forget one salad and deliver the wrong steaks despite being asked if they had the doneness correct, they seemed upset we asked but still managed to deliver the wrong steak to the wrong guest.
