Food was horrible. Ordered a $62 Porterhouse medium rare. It came out as this small, 1/2 inch thick, well done horrible tasting excuse for a steak. Took one bite and sent it back. They offered to bring something else but every other person The table had a poor quality, over done steak so I said no thanks. They didn’t even take the uneaten steak off the bill at the end of the meal. Will never go back to Morton’s. It was good years ago but they sold out and the new owner has destroyed this icon. Even our waiter admitted that things had changed a lot and not for the better. I’d recommend avoiding Morton’s and choose a steakhouse that still serves a quality product.

Hosted our friends here for a birthday. Top notch service and the food was amazing. Really liked the shrimp cocktail presentation. This sounds lame, but the onion soup is actually better than the one I had in Paris at the Xmas market. Steak was perfect. Will be back.

We went to dinner for NYE and had a great time. However some of the food lacked salt and our waitress was absent. It took a long time for us to be greeted, have the table cleared and our beverage service was lacking as well. Im assuming her lack of availability also explains why my husband was served cold bisque. I expect a little more from a place like this even on NYE. However, the steak was one of the best I’ve had in a while and the other staff tried to help fill in the gaps.

Waited about 15 minutes to get our menus because there was a shortage and had to ask three times to see a cocktail menu. But other than that the food was excellent from the bread to the oysters to everyone’s steak and lobster, we finished it all!

They weren’t prepared for NYE staff wise. Brandon was great but everyone else was confused with table numbers for food deliveries. As a Vic and Anthony’s couple we were impressed with the shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque...nothing else.

Terrible service! It was my boyfriends and I first time going there and we were very disappointed in the service. Long story short, we were seated and completely forgot about. A waiter asked if we wanted water, we said yes but he never went back. We had to ask for the menus ourselves because they were never taken to us. The menus they took to us were dirty with food. A family got seated at a table near us AFTER us and they quickly got their menus and drink order taken. Everyone else was getting helped except for us. After 10-15 minutes of being ignored, we decided to leave.

The ambience was great, but the service was poor. It took over 30 minutes just to get cocktails. Waitress was not attentive- she paid absolutely no attention to detail. It took over an hour to receive our dinner salads. The waitress ignored how long we had to wait- she made no apologies. I expect much better service from a restaurant of this caliber.

This was Christmas Eve dinner for the family, the girlfriend and my daughter. I thought Morton’s would be a good place to treat the two of my favorite people alive. Was not disappointed at all. Great apps and a martini to start with, then we moved on to a great bottle of wine and the main course. Steaks all around as expected, my 11 year old had a 8oz filet which was small for her but she tore through it, probably not tasting anything, the kid is a T-Rex reincarnated. I thought about the wagu but went ribeye bone in. Again fantastic by all counts. The lobster bisque needs a little more attention to detail, I understand you don’t want to cut up the lobster but maybe not just one huge chunk. Over all great meal will be back agaian...

The service and atmosphere were great. However I wasn’t impressed by the rubbery steak and watery macaroni with fake lobster chunks. The cream spinach was more cream than spinach. I was really disappointed and this was my first time there. I’ve had better meals at III Forks and Ruth Chris. I felt bad that my husband had to pay for this expensive restaurant bill with subpar food.

Morton's downtown has always been one of my to go places for business lunches, until now.
Sadly my last time our experience was at best fair, and that is based on the attentiveness of our server.
We waited a long time for everything, food, dessert,etc.
I can understand it being the holiday season and places at busier than norm but that should not allow for the quality of food to drop. Our steakes were sad looking on a plate garnished with a few wilted leaves of green, they were in such sad state we couldn't tell what kind of plant it was. I ordered a medium rare fillet but it came out more like rare, it took so long to get it in the first place I didn't want to send it back

We were seated at 12:30 with a reservation with a group from work. They were busy and it was quite loud, but expected for a busy restaurant. Food was good, as it has been every other time I've been there.

Biggest issue was missing waiter and slow service. Waiter was no where to be found for much of the time we were there. No water refills unless we asked. Some folks at my table ordered cappuccinos that took 10-15 minutes to come out. Check took quite some time to arrive after asking for it.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. I've been to various Morton's, but the downtown Houston location was my first. Our water glasses never went empty, our cocktails exceeded our expectations, and Luis was a superb waiter. We both ordered lobster bisque and filet mignon, and they tasted incredible. Even though my filet was well done, it was juicy and not dry at all. My boyfriend was so amazed at how good the food was and how classy the restaurant felt. There were a few other groups there, but it was quiet and relaxing. If you go for Restaurant Weeks, make sure to request that specific menu. Also, if you tell them you're there for a certain occasion when you make the reservation, they will make a personalized menu and give you a Morton's card with a picture of your dinner party as a keepsake. We will definitely be back!

Everything was really average for such high prices. wine list is insane- 15 dollar bottle of wines listed for 100.
asked for HRW menu- twice before receiving it. Treated kind of Blah since we ordered from it even though we also had drinks and other things from the menu.

Lobster night was incredible; gotta give it up to Mark, Skip, Luis, and Manny for 5-star service.

Chef came out to say hi and check on things -- nice touch.

Everything was perfect as usual. I had the monster lobster and my wife did the HRW menu. Good crowd as well and drinks were solid.
