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!

Morton's is notorious for great, not inexpensive food. This birthday celebration surpassed expectations - everything went ever so well. I will continue - as I'm a Landry club member...

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!

Always a great evening. Unfortunately they had a private event going on which took up the whole bar and patio, but at least they called to tell me this ahead of time and gave us a nice table inside. Steak quality and preparation without comparison the very best.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 24, 2017

Mort's is a classic steakhouse, and within that range it's very good. My steak was excellent, and perfectly prepared. The asparagus, likewise -- properly cooked to be tender but not mush. Not the place for molecular gastronomy, but if that's what you want, don't go to a steakhouse. You pay fancy steakhouse prices, but you get fancy steakhouse food.

Our waitress was a bit harried -- she did her best, but I think that she had or or two more tables than she should have.

I marked my review down a tad for two reasons. First, issue with dessert. We decided to order the soufflé, but, alas, the machine broke down. (What machine? A mixer? Why not have a spare?). Then we tried to get carrot cake -- no soap, they were out. Missing one dessert item is excusable. Two, not so much.

The real markdown in the service category was for the Sommelier. I'm sure he's a nice guy. And yes, he managed to open the wine bottle reasonable adroitly. But in terms of knowledge -- useless. I asked him to describe the wines for the "Walk Through Napa" Coravin tasting. (Three three ounce pours of good wines.). He said they were delicious. No other information about the wineries, the type of wine, etc. It was clear he knew nothing about them. Except they were good. Duh.

Then I told him I liked the Darioush, and that a similar but new-to-me wine in that price range would be great. And it was a nice price range -- up to about $350. No recommendation was forthcoming. Seriously, he just said "we have a lot to choose from at that price point" and he looked blankly at the wine list. Finally, I made my own selection (the Stag's Leap Fay) and it was superb. Which I knew it would be because I've had it before. My friend and I enjoyed the food, and the wine was great, perfectly paired with the steaks. But if the sommelier doesn't know anything useful, what's the point? Opening the bottle and pouring, I suppose, but a server can do that.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary dinner. Morton’s is a well known steak restaurant and I knew we would be spending over $100 on our meal.
The restaurant was very dark when we went in. I personally don’t like overly dark restaurants because I have trouble seeing my partner. We decided to sit outside on the terrace as it was warmer. Understandably there would be noise outside because we were next to a very busy street. It was unfortunate that someone decided to do some sort of concrete drilling though across the street. I also found quite a low level of lighting here too with bright blue Christmas lights around the trees.
The food was quite good. Steaks were excellent as well as the creamed spinach. This was the best part.
The service was very poor however. Long waits for servers when there was few people in the restaurant. Not a lot of attention considering the price I would be paying. Then there was a mix up with the bill which added a lot more time.
Overall I would not go back there as I personally feel the service and atmosphere really killed it. The food was tasty, but not good enough to over power the other two points plus the large bill.

We have eaten in Morton's in 7 states, and have come to rely on impeccable food and service. With all our choices in downtown D.C., we decided to go out of our way for Morton's tonight. It was horrible. The food was served cold. The sides were not what we ordered. The steak was overdone. It took forever. It was a horrid experience. So disappointing. The staff was apologetic, and offered to make it good. In fact, they comped the meal. It was just so disappointing because with all the great places to choose in downtown DC, we chose that.
