The food and service were excellent. The restaurant was pretty empty. I think that there were about 4 tables seated inside and 3 outside. We felt very safe and socially distanced.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. There was cigar smoking on the terrace but that's to be expected outside. Our waiter was TOP NOTCH (wish that I could remember his name) and the food was SUPERB. My boss has already said that whenever I can't find her in the office, she'll be at Morton's on the terrace. LOL! Thanks so much for such a wonderful experience.

Normal date night. Service was very good and so was the ambiance. The food however was mediocre. The cajun ribeye was delicious. The creamed spinach was bland, the truffle fries had a nice taste but overcooked and hard. Bread for the table was a round loaf with onions on top which was also very hard and stale.

Good bar menu but you have to ask for it. Cigar smokers on the patio so there is an odor though it is not obtrusive. Knowledgeable servers and bar staff. Food was just okay, small portions and overcooked. I’m sure the main menu is better.

Wife and I had a 630 dinner reservation, experience was exceptional. Food was delicious and our two waitresses were incredible with their attitude, timeliness and knowledge. Morton's on Connecticut was nothing short of a superb experience. Recommend 100x over several other premiere steak houses in the DMV.

Food was decent. Steak was over cooked although i ordered medium. Drinks were amazing when i was able to get them. Service was iffy. We were forgotten abt waited long for another round of drinks, napkins, wrong order . The (who seemed like management) was nice enough to step in and kept checking in after that.

me and my boyfriend got to dinner at 10 pm, my favorite. and we sat in the lounge area due to the dress code. I finished my whole steak so it must have been perfect because I usually take food home. my server was excellent and black and beautiful. next time we will be dressing up so that we can sit on the patio

This worst ever Morton's experience! My lobster tails were cold and had to be sent back. Same for other guests at the table. The waitress was inattentive and went off for over 20 minutes after we requested our checks. HORRIBLE SERVICE!!

The outdoor dining space on the terrace was lovely and the waitress was very kind.

Two reflections:

1) A steak house of this caliber should always get the temperature of their steak correct - I ordered a medium rare filet and it was beyond well done. Not a big deal on the grand scale, but this should be something they nail every time.

2) Upon greeting our table after being seated, the waitress, after detailing the specials, presented a flyer to join Landry's restaurant club. This is probably best left to the end of the meal, and something to discreetly share with presentation of the check. It felt a bit like a 'sales call', again which is a bit unexpected at an eatery like Morton's.
