This is the worst meal and experience I have had at a high scale chain steakhouse. The server was rude and disinterested. We had a reservation and the place was empty and they still made us wait 10 minutes to be seated. I would rather have eaten at McDonalds than go back to this Morton's steakhouse. It was so bad I may never step foot in ANY Morton’s ever again. Even the salads were bad. If you want to drop a ton of money on a good steak meal go anywhere but here.

Disappointing!! Very expensive for bad food! The scallops wrapped in bacon were tasteless. The salmon had too many beans and corn. The fries tasted of old oil. The filet mignon was fair.

Almost perfect veal chop w/ truffle butter and courteous service. Lemon souffle was a small disappointment. Brussel sprouts were undercooked. If you are looking for qood steak and do not need a team to serve you, you can have it elsewhere for much less money. 38 USD for a small glass of dessert wine is too much - there are also much less costly Eiswine options available tasting the same but Morton's lists only one.

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.

Excellent food!! However the service completely fails to deliver. Came with a party of 10. Had a reservation but was told to wait since the entire party wasn't there at the same time. Once everyone was there we went to the host stand and were told to wait. They had to set up our table, they hadn't even prepared for our reservation when they even knew we were there. After that the service was ok but making our party wait because they didn't bother to get the table ready was unrecoverable in a restaurant of the caliber that Morton's claims to be.

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!

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!
