Ambiance was very romantic and quiet. Service was exceptional! Food was good but not a good value for the money. It is a nice spot for a special occasion and if you notify them when you make the reservation, they’ll print it on your menu....nice touch!

It was an outdoor eating experience although indoor dining was available. The blue lighting was welcoming and the area was socially distanced. The food was top shelf and they even had a deal that made affordability even more inviting. The only negative point was that they allowed cigar smoking in an area outdoors & there was someone who took advantage but it filled the air for awhile.

Amazing way to celebrate our anniversary and Morton's made everything perfect even during this COVID pandemic. Sitting was more than 6 ft away, hand sanitizer stations everywhere and food and venue on point. Rabin and Lauren were amazing and thanks to the entire Morton's team as we will be coming back

Maybe it was bad timing on our part but we waited for a little over 25 Min to be greeted and presented with a menu. I think we were forgotten about when we were seated. Once we were acknowledged our dining experience was much better and we really enjoyed our food. I am more biased to the Palm and Bobby Vans when it comes to steaks. However i do highly recommend the Lobster Mac N Cheese and the Cajun Ribeye... They were pretty amazing

Filet unimpressive, dry, flavorless. Salad downright terrible. Great Potatos, Creme brulee, shrimp and crab. Service was good, bartenders were nice. Patio area was the highlight. Will be back because of patio, but probably will just do appetizers. Simply because better food elsewhere for better prices/value.

Really enjoyed my dinner at Morton's. We originally wanted to sit outside, but the day of it was really hot and the host gave us the option to sit inside. Other guests were spaced more than 6 feet apart, so we were very comfortable eating there. I really enjoyed my center cut filet mignon steak with the black truffle butter, and the sour cream mashed potatoes are really good. I also enjoyed the lemon drop "mortini". The brussell sprouts were a little bland to me, so I'll opt for a different vegetable next time. Overall, I really enjoyed dinner here and definitely will return.

The best thing about Morton’s DC Is the cigar patio. So few places remain where good food and drink can be followed by a delicious smoke. Steaks cooked to perfection. Drinks well made. Service was excellent. Looking forward to returning.

Really disappointing experience. We sat outside on the patio where they apparently allow smoking and two tables were constantly puffing on cigars. Just awful. The outdoor area was also pretty sparse, just very bland and didn’t feel special or upscale at all. The food was meh, nothing really special. And the service was fine, but our waitress, who seemed eager and well-intentioned, just seemed like she would fit better at an Appleby’s than an upscale steak place.

The real kicker though, and why I’d never go back, is their deceptive pricing. Or maybe I should say their LACK of pricing. Most of the steaks on the menu say “market price.” For steak? I’ve never seen that in my 50 years on this planet. And when the bill came, I could see why they didn’t state the price, because it’s highway robbery. Seriously, $64 for a New York strip?! Which was only mediocre and undercooked anyway. A total ripoff.

The food was delicious! No complains, except i requested my steak well done and received it about medium. I had to send it back. But as for taste, it was great. The service wasn’t as good as you expect. It took about 20 mins between each plate. There was a manager that was wearing wedges flip flops that every time she walked by the noise of her shoes were loud and obnoxious. I would’ve approached her but not sure if she had some kind of foot condition.

I took my family out to celebrate and right now they have the restaurant week special. Everyone at the table got the 3-course restaurant week menu for $55. The food was delicious especially the steaks they were seasoned very well. Now to the bad part. The customer service was extremely horrible. I made reservations through open table to which they were confirmed early that day. When we arrived at 6:15 we were seated. Our waitress provided us our menus and water and everything was good once we placed our orders. After placing our orders we did not receive our starters (appetizers) which were salads and soups until 45 mins later. By that time 3 tables were seated after us and had already received their starters. The waitress informed us our food was delivered to the wrong table and did not come to check on us after that. Then to follow on we did not receive our meal until another 40 minutes later. Management tried to help but they did not make anything better. This experience was horrible and I do not recommend Morton’s -Downtown DC to anyone. I would recommend that the corporate office and management work together to develop a customer service training program for waiters/waitresses to work on their skills.

Enjoyed and will return. Highly recommend the Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Bone In Ribeye, Salmon and the Au Gratin potato’s are a must. I was disappointed with the Lobster Mac and Cheese as well as the cream spinach not bad just not my palates preference. Our only issue in the service side was the time it took to get a dessert in and receive a dessert. Our server received a large party as we were finishing our meals and as he took orders and set them up we felt forgot about, it was okay though the Caramel Cheesecake was worth the wait.

They are also taking additional precautions due to the Covid pandemic. I was satisfied with the distance between tables and the extra cleaning protocols taking place. I will definitely return.

Service was very bad. We didn’t get a last call for food, wasn’t offered desserts and didn’t get a last call on bar. We wanted to enjoy drinks with dessert but was not able to order because the kitchen closed and we didn’t know. The server was too busy and gave us no attention. She answered questions with attitude and walked away from table as we were trying to speak with her. Her and another server had a full conversation interrupting us while we were trying to order dinner with her. We ate dinner with dirty plates all over the table because she did not prebuss the table at all. For the price of our meal, we are unsatisfied with our experience.
