Or visit to Morton’s for a special occasion - a team member’s last day at work - was unfortunate and regrettable. Our table was not ready for our 12pm reservation. After being seated more than 5 minutes after our reservation time - and about 8 minutes after we arrived - we had to wait more than 10 minutes for menus (which we had to ask for). We were offered bread when our waiter first arrived - but waited 40 minutes from the time we sat down to get the bread - and had to ask for it. The experience was capped off when the bill included a bottle of wine on the bill - in addition to the 2 glasses that actually were ordered by our party of 7. This was amazingly poor for what should be a nice restaurant.

The food at Morton's is beyond overpriced. The combination of one small crab cake, one portion of lobster macaroni and cheese, three drinks, and one bottle of sparkling water merited a bill of $113.00. Really, the food isn't go great that the high prices can be accepted and forgiven. Further, a restaurant of the caliber of Morton's does not filter its drinking water? When I asked the gentleman pouring water if the water was filtered, he replied, "No, it's from the tap." From the tap? Is Morton's kidding? Is this the restaurant chain's way of strong-arming patrons into purchasing pricey bottles of water? My dining companion wanted a bottle of sparkling water; it was too large for her to finish. Morton's may consider itself a high-end restaurant catering to the whims of bluebloods, but it can't filter its drinking water? A total disgrace. Shame on Morton's for compelling patrons to either drink unfiltered tap water or purchase a bottle of drinking water.

Morton’s is a reliable place to entertain colleagues and friends. It was very good and my guests enjoyed themselves, but the place was packed and the kitchen and staff must have been slammed. The wait staff were friendly, polite and professional, but 30 minutes is a long time to wait between placing the order and waiting for the salads to arrive. It got better as the meal went on and will return to this location and hope it will not be quite so busy.

Excellent as always. Our waiter, Harry, was precisely as attentive and accommodating as he needed to be, and not one bit more - which was perfect. Tried the "Nueske Bacon Steak" for the first time, and it is outstanding. What more can I say? It's Morton's!

Morton’s was one of our favorite steak restaurants...we were very disappointed with the quality and preparation of the food at our last visit, we will not be going back again, at least for awhile!

Went for a date night and received subpar service. We waited over 45 min for our dinner while we watched a table come in after us and receive dinner + a bottle of wine in under 20 min. They gave us our meal for free but it just was underwhelming.

The food was absolutely delicious! Everyone from the Hostess, to our beautiful waitress, to the Dining Floor Manager, delivered exceptional customer service! It was my 1st time dining here mainly because I was given a gift card for my 50th Birthday back in July and I finally decided to use it today so that I could have a great Sunday Dinner!

The hostess seated the people in front of us at the last available booth in the main area, even though they stated that they had no reservation. We ended up getting seated at a table tucked away in the back area because the main area was now full, which was not ideal. It’s disappointing that I had to make a reservation to get a worse table than someone else that just walked in. We also did not receive any complimentary bread, unless this is no longer provided. The bright spots were our waitress and the food. The food was absolutely delicious, and our service at the table from our waitress was outstanding!

We came here for New Year’s Eve, to avoid going out partying but still being together. We loved the festive balloons and props to celebrate the new year, it was a nice touch to be able to still celebrate while having a nice dinner.

My friend and I had a reservation Christmas night for dinner and waited for the receptionist to come to the podium to be seated. Once, she did arrived she informed us there would be a wait. She never greeted me or looked at me in the face even when she walked us to our table. The waitress who came to our table never asked us how we were doing or told us about any specials, she asked us if we wanted water and left. The final straw was when our water was poured and bread was delivered by a different server who literally flipped the bread and butter on the table. He never greeted us, said his name, or anything, so we politely left the establishment. For the amount of money we were prepared to spend, the service was subpar and completely disappointing.
