The red balloons for Valentine’s Day were fun and the staff friendly. Drinks and bread arrived promptly. Food was delicious and the Appreciated the kid-friendly options. We were seated in a wing off to the side and I found it cold but that was my only concern.

It was a terrible experience. Let's start with the food. The crab cake appetizers were cold. We had three separate plates. They literally reheated the crab cakes and attempted to remember who in the dinner party had which plate. It was shocking. I have NEVER experienced a situation where the restaurants error resulted in me having to wonder if I was eating my original crab cake or someone else's. I can't understand why they simply didn't just make a new order. It also took awhile to receive the "reheated" crab cakes.

I brought this to the attention of the manager and he just simply said "well I hope they tasted good". Unbelievable

Next, the menu doesn't indicate if entrees have bacon. So we received two items, lobster mac & cheese and a salad with bacon. We do not eat red meat or pork. When we asked to have new items made without bacon and the manager simply said it's the responsibility of the server to inform you that certain items have bacon. Again shocking because this did not occur.

The final straw was the picture taking and the fact that we were not offered to have a picture taken for Valentines Day as all the surrounding tables were offered. They were given a picture in a Morton's frame. We were ignored.

I am a business world travel and professional and I can't recall such horrific experience at a restaurant. I was embarrassed as I had recommended Mortons. I would never recommend this Morton's and strongly advise senior leadership to evaluate their business practices. It's unfortunate that our Valentine's Day was ruined due to incompetence and poor service.

Beef medaillon was tiny and without sauce. Way too expensive for what I got.

steak was delicious.. lobster tail was excellent but a bit difficult to eat.
felt since there is capitale grill and joes stone crabs nearby, the cost was kind of high..
we went because of a special surf and turf promotion.. francesca the waitress was excellent.

Our food (across the board) was cold and not done as requested. Very disappointed and not likely to return to a Morton restaurant.

I planned a dinner for my husband here. I reserved on Open Table and it was perfect. The table was covered in Happy Birthday confetti when we arrived, and the menu said a Happy Birthday. The food was fantastic, and we contstantly had people coming to the table to ensure service was good.

Restaurant hosting cigar event which had the entire restaurant smelling like cigar smoke. Not the best smell for such a nice restaurant.

We always love coming to this Morton's location. We decided to come and try the "DC Restaurant Week" special menu. I ordered the Filet Mignon 6 oz with an "upgrade" (for $10.00) to 8 oz. After I put the order in the waitress came back and told me that the "upgrade" was not available on the Restaurant Week Menu. I told her to look at the menu card because I read it right off the menu. She left and never came back and corrected herself, but I got what I think was an 8 oz steak and it was delicious. TOo bad the service isn't consistently excellent because the food, cocktails, wine list, etc are!

Everyone at the restaurant was lovely. Friendly, warm, very knowledgeable, and helpful. My husband enjoyed his birthday. We will definitely be returning for dinner without having a special occasion. Henry was our server and he was great.
