We went there for restaurant week and had lobster bisque, fillet minion, and key lime pie for dessert. All were very tasty. The service was very attentive, and the atmosphere was quiet.
Staff were very helpful afterwards when we needed directions back to our hotel.

We went for Washington restaurant week. Had to ask about getting that special menu. The server was not happy to bring it. Her attitude changed after she realized that we were not going to be ordering the $79 steak. That was disappointing.other than that, the food was fantastic!

This was my second visit to Morton's in DC. This go round, I visited during restaurant week with a group of friends. The staff was very good about making sure our table was set up before our arrival and they added some festive birthday decor to the table.

The food was great, the service was fantastic.

I rated the ambiance negatively because there was a pungent odor in the dining room that was hard to ignore. I can imagine the restaurant had experienced some flooding or rainwater seeping in due to recent weather and the restaurant being situated below the sidewalk level. It was unfortunate that most of the early patrons were seated near the back of the restaurant where the odor was strongest. Under different circumstances, we would have requested a different seating location but we were on a tight schedule and did not want to wait for the venue to do another large set up for our group.

Overall, I would rate our experience as positive due to the attention of our server who accommodated several special requests with a friendly demeanor. I recommend this restaurant.

Pro-tip: leave room for dessert!

Every time we come to the US my wife and I go to Mortons for a romantic meal. This year was one of the best. The wine was excellent, the soufflé was fantastic and the steak was astonishing. Great service, great food. Just a perfect night.

Started off with a poor Cosmopolitan cocktail - the bartender could have used a lesson or two. However, the service was typical Morton's - very attentive and professional. The steaks were done to perfection and the wine recommendation made up for the tasteless watered-down Cosmopolitan.

We had a booth which made it a perfect venue and we ate early enough where it was fairly quiet and romantic.

Prior experiences with Mortons lead me to expect both a higher level of service and a higher quality of food. Maybe we hit an off night, but we will be going to other Morton's in the future. His Ribeye was great but my grill (Filet / shrimp / scallops) seemed to be Red Lobster quality. Our waiter was hard to understand, we had to ask for water and bread multiple times, and then he stopped me on the way out because he though I wrote down the tip wrong (I only left 10% for less then average service) The manager 'stopped by' our table on his way past and didn't even pause for an answer to 'how is everything'

Too dark, too hot, the ambience was lousy. Service was lackadaisical even after belatedly being informed that the kitchen had run out of the menu item my wife had ordered. Regrettably, not much to commend on this evening.

Family in town wanted a great rib-eye and they got it. Everything was perfect--with the exception of a baked potato costing $13. We did have a wonderful time making polite fun of that, though, so no complaints. They even obliged (without judgement) when we requested ketchup for the steak. Staff is very courteous and kind. The food was absolutely wonderful.

Morton's is not bad, you are paying a premium for an upscale chain that claims their meat is 'prime'. Part of the Landry's, Inc. with over 500 restaurants.

Had some cooking issues, spinach was scorched and tasted smokey, meat was slightly over cooked and lacked marbling. Saw 2 items sent back to kitchen from other tables. They charge a lot of money for this type of cooking and only 8 tables were full.

My issue is they are expensive and their quality is just a step up from Lonestar or other mid-tier chain steakhouse.

This was our second "special occasion" at this particular Morton's in Georgetown, DC. We came to celebrate my son's college Graduation. Food was fantastic, Service "Superior" (by Vince). Dinner is unnecessarily overly expensive here, so this really is meant for a "special" occasion.......But we Enjoy it VERRY much, so the strive and atmosphere is the trade off. for the prices, portions are small, (fine for me, but small for the guys!) :) And no sides included. Our Server, Vince was SUPERIOR, and made our celebration that much better! Definitely recommend this place! :)
(As an FYI...Morton's should also try the "graduate" eats for free....as with many of the other similar restaurants we considered.)

Made a last minute Mothers Day res and was shocked that I got in. Arrived at 4:30 and almost no one there. Had the most amazing meal with steaks so well prepared that they rivaled the best in town - the chef here really knows what "Pittsburgh Style" means. The service was impeccable and just right - they called us by name and they reuly made us feel at home. My wife, no stranger to fine dining, was impressed and I looked like a hero. Thanks Morton's G'town...we will be back.
PS - you G'town locals are really missing the boat here...I know it's been there a long time (DC's first Morton's) but it is a better than ever and definitely worth another try.

The entire location has had a grand makeover, not just the physical but also the emotional vibe.

This location use to be where you sent people you disliked. Now it has become the hidden "it" scene in Georgetown. Service is fantastic, the food has flavours beyond just a steakhouse.

There is a fabulous fire pit and patio that I believe looks and feels, as if, a New York City restaurant and a Malibu eatery had a child.

In all, be seen or not... your choice with this location. Eat like you're a Texan or as a Berkley vegetarian. Or do as I do and mix it up and dine like you're from Lincoln, Nebraska.

One can always count on Morton's The Steakhouse for excellent service and consistently good food. I do find it overpriced since everything is a la carte, and adding a simple side dish can max out your dinner budget. The steaks are first-rate, though, and the fish options were quite good as well.

One of my favourite steak houses across the US. On this trip I sampled the special oysters with Garlic Butter - Good, and had my Filet with Truffled Fries - Excellent. Followed by some fresh berries and cream. Great service in a old school steakhouse where else would you want to get your meat fix?

Went to Morton's for a special occasion as it was our Georgetown student's birthday. He's a big steak lover so since we have visited many of the other restaurants already, we thought we would give Mortons a try. Food was OK but nothing special. Most of us had steak, which wasn't any better then a typical Georgetown restaurant. Service was poor even though the restaurant was rather empty. For the price we paid, we would've expected much better. Next time we'll go back to the capital Grille .

I chose this restaurant for a double date and I was not very impressed. I ordered the 6oz filet mignon medium rare and I did not think that it even came close to being worth the $42 that it cost. It was overcooked (hard and crunchy in some spots), not very flavorful, and it came with absolutely nothing else on the plate. Ive eaten filets at other restaurants and they've been tender and juicy and were at least served with some potatoes or other vegetable. I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant because I had heard wonderful things about it, but I most certainly will not being going back nor will I be recommending this place to anyone I know. It was very expensive (and I'm aware of the cost of higher tier dining in DC) but this place was not worth it at all, and the others in my party felt similarly. Incredibly disappointing.

I do not typically write reviews unless I am meaningfully satisfied or dissatisfied with an experience. Unfortunately this was a dissatisfying experience. Our server was really sub-par, he charged us for sides we did not want or order, he took forever to bring my wife new drinks (literally 7-10 minutes waiting for a second cocktail) and other accouterments for her meal. When we finally received our food there were extra sides which we did not order, but the worst of it was that the sides we did order (Au Gratin potatoes) were cold! Not room temperature, but cold in the middle. We had to send them back. The steak was good (we ordered filet) but the overall experience for $300 was inadequate. Now I could have let them off by justifying our poor service, mediocre meal and long waits with "oh it's Valentines day, they are just really busy but they're trying hard to make it work." However, the restaurant was barely 1/2 full...the back room was nearly empty. I also saw other tables sending their steaks back for being cooked incorrectly. I will not be going back to this location, maybe it was a one-off but unfortunately it was on a fairly important night.

Steaks were excellent; creamed spinach was excellent; mashed potatoes were good but not great; chocolate cake was tasty. Good portions.

However, our waitress was not as professional and knowledgeable about the menu as she should have been for a supposedly 4-star restaurant. She could not clearly explain the difference between the four-five different types of mashed potatoes and did not make a recommendation. The restaurant's atmosphere was not what you would expect from 4-star restaurant: the music was upbeat transient house-type music and it was slightly annoying. Next time I venture out for a romantic steak dinner I will go somewhere else.

A typical steakhouse is going cost you a lot (at least 200 if bottle of wine + tip), but this place is very good in the steak, they give you a lot of meat, and you have a variety of side dishes and appetizers to choose from. The wine list is huge and their background music is really classy too.
