Morton's The Steakhouse - Downtown DC Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
Everything was great; indoor window seat, food, service until.. they seated 3 men in the closed outside deck(enclosed at the weather was warm) area. They starte smoking cigars and every time someone went out to service the table, my wife and I could smell the smoke. Our server promptly moved us but the mood of the evening was gone. I thought this was illegal.
I made this reservation for a friend and this is what she had to say about her date last night:
I went to Morton’s last night to have dinner for my boyfriends birthday and everything was perfect. Food tasted absolutely amazing! My server Maurice was very knowledgeable and his recommendations for appetizers and steaks could not have been any more perfect. They also had special birthday menus on the table with his name on them which made our experience even more special!
Everyone was super friendly from the host, management staff, and servers and I’ll definitely be coming back!
This Morton's location is simply fantastic. After another chain steakhouse abruptly cancelled our reservation hours before, we turned to Morton's to have a nice dinner before celebrating New Year's Eve. Turns out that the cancellation was a blessing in disguise as Morton's far exceeded what we would have received (food quality, service, etc.) at the other place. We will be sure to add this to our list of regular locations.
The evening at Morton's was fantastic. My escargot appetizer was terrific as my wife's spinach salad. Out filet mignon was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The molten lava cake made for a tasty ending to the meal. And last but certainly not least, our server was excellent and friendly and we enjoyed meeting him.
Probably Won't Go Back
Service was EXTRA slow. When the entrees finally came the manager who was assisting the server forgot what food belonged to whom. The diners who ordered steaks were suggested to just cut into their steaks to see who ordered what. Manager was called back to the table to discuss and was very sarcastic. Side dishes were under seasoned. Steak no real flavor. Wasn't impressed.
This is not the Morton's I remember. My son is back from his first semester away at college and I wanted to take him to a nice steak dinner. He has been eating dorm food for four months!
The service seemed like I was at Olive Garden, the ribeye steak was full of fat and I needed to send my wine back. The wine was spoiled. The dining room reeked of cigar smoke. I usually value a good steak house meal. In this case I feel I way overpaid for the experience, ambiance and the taste of the meal. Ambiance was a tad creepy.
Very disappointed. I was with clients, and I had made a reservation. Upon arrival they told me that they did not have room, and we can go sit in the bar area. The explanation was that a couple of tables were seated without the knowledge of the hostess. Meanwhile, they had put together a table of 10 people in the middle of the restaurant which the hostess did not know why it was set up. No one also sat there in the 90 minutes that I was at the restaurant. We ended up waiting at the bar and not leaving due to weather. The manager was to come see us but never arrived. They finally gave us a table. Service was poor. The Salmon salad I ordered was soggy with dressing. No one ever came by to apologize for their screw up. They seemed to not care. I don't know if management has changed, but it was the worst experience. It is unfortunate because i used to frequent this place a lot. I can not say the same moving forward. I am Morton's is doing so well, as to not seem to care about their patrons, especially a frequent visitor.
After thanksgiving weekend and before shipping the family members back to their corners of the planet I took the group to Mortons.
The staff greeted us with smiles and kindness.
The facility is kept with great care and runs like a well oiled machine.
The food was fantastic and masterly prepared. Service was beyond reproach.
Overall, these people know how to make dinner a grand adventure that you wish would never end.
Mortons downtown is simply fabulous! The only thing lacking is ambiance.. it is very tradicional mostly business meals here, but i will go again anytime for the quality of the food!! Amazing steaks. It was my birthday and they took care of making special every minute: decorated table, pictures, personalized menus... thank you Mortons! Totally recommend it!
