We all thought the food was great. We love the beefsteak tomato and blue cheese salad. The blue cheese is the best I have ever had. We really enjoy our visits to Mortons and always recommend it to our friends.
When we arrived the young lady at the desk informed us we didn’t have a reservation. In fact we did through open table. We spent some time talking to her and she abruptly showed to a booth. We felt as though we lied or cheated our way in to Morton’s.
The experience was saved by our waiter David. His perfect service saved the day.
Food was delicious!
Moderate food quality at best and
The steak was great - tender and done to perfection. The Caesar salad was drenched in dressing, the horseradish mashed potatoes weren’t good - they had way too much horseradish in them- but to be fair they did not charge us for the potatoes. The chocolate soufflé was not good either.
Another great meal at Mortons! The dinner was made better by our waiter Flavio. He was extremely helpful and made sure we had an excellent experience. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were plated in their own juicy goodness. A couple of guests had the shrimp and scallops and really enjoyed them. I recommend the Au gratin twice baked potatoes! Desserts were awesome, especially the carrot cake and the bread pudding. Really enjoyable experience.
We were on vacation at Palm Desert. Morton’s was a perfect night out!
We vacation in Palm Desert for 2 weeks every year and always start off our daily dinners at Morgan's. The ambiance is very nice, the food is consistently excellent, the martinis are a decent size, the wine list is good, and the service is always terrific.
La carne estaba deliciosa y las botanas también. Muy bien servicio tanto del bar como del restaurant
Eric took great care of us all during our meal. Will request his table next time we dine at Morton’s.
There is zero excuse for the steak that was served us, nor for the response of the manager. This steakhouse routinely charges $50+ for just a steak, so the one thing it should be able to make is steak. Guess again.
My husband ordered a filet, medium-well. He was served a piece of meat that appeared to be fully cooked but the entire piece of meat was colder than room temperature (and, no, it wasn't even room or resting temperature). How does that happen? The only logical explanation we can figure is that the meat had been pre-cooked, refrigerated, and then dumped on a plate, and served. When we asked for it to be fixed, our plates were whisked away and then the same pieces of meat on the same plates were quickly returned in a few, short minutes, certainly not long enough to cook anything properly. (My rib-eye was by then swimming in a huge puddle of very unappetizing grease; apparently no one could bother to re-plate). The manager seemed strangely unapologetic. He said that that meal should never have been served, but at first tried to tell us that it must have been the temperature we requested. Huh? By that time the meal was clearly unacceptable and we decided to leave. He offered us a free dessert and complained we weren't letting them prepare a whole new meal. Well, at that point, they'd already had two chances and couldn't deliver! The manager made us pay for two alcoholic beverages and two non-alcoholic beverages, and comped us on the little food we had had up until then. Any other restaurant would have comped the whole amount, as a small gesture toward ruining what should have been a special meal.
We went there for our 25th wedding anniversary and the service was excellent from the greeting by the hostess and throughout the entire visit. Our server Elwood was very attentive and informative. Overall a wonderful experience.
We enjoyed Morton’s but believe $48 for a 6 oz steak ala cart is over priced
Very good but not great. $90 a person...no cocktails. 8 oz. filet-56$---on the low side of 8 oz...cooked well and flavorful tho. Same with 6 oz at $52
$15 for a small bowl of mediocre onion soup. $6 for a small dish of blue cheese butter. Sides are 15$ OUCH!!!
Service not good. Hispanic server who was in training. When he took our order he did not ask us if we wanted salads or sides. Then he had to go on break and from there service disappeared. Don't start server and then send him on break during meal!!!
Steak houses in general are expensive all over. They need to reinvent themselves in some way or a dying breed. Why do they need to charge $15 for a dish of mashed potatoes that cost them less than a $1 Rethink the concept. I think you will bring more people in. People feel abused by the price of sides.
Additionally, at a $15% gratuity. the amounts to around $40. While at Denny's,, breakfast costs $20 and with a 15% gratuity you pay $3--and sometimes for better service. (note--gratuity is an option and is not included--just to be clear)
Always good at Morton’s. Very nice atmosphere for business meetings. Can get a little noisy at times. It seems a bit expensive but it is the best steakhouse in the Valley. Little disappointed that manager did not gone by the table and as members of Morton’s VIP used to receive drinks after dinner.
Best dinner ever! Steak, scallops and shrimp were delicious! Lava cake could have been more runny in the center. Going there for a value does not apply.
My husband and I enjoy a good steakhouse and heard of Morton’s. We finally tried it this past week while on vacation in Palm Desert. Overall we liked it. I was concerned about this location based on some reviews. We arrived a little early expecting a drink at the bar. The bar was packed due to happy hour specials. We were seated at our table and ordered a drinks. Our servers were ready to take our order but we tapped the brakes saying we want to enjoy a drink first. We later ordered a wedge salad and the bone in filet and a bottom wine. Salad was good. Filet was cooked to perfection at medium plus. We shared the filet partly because of the over indulgence we did on vacation thus far. We didn’t get any sides. I think we partly shared the entree because the pricing of the steaks is skewed towards the high end. We couldn’t help ourselves and ordered a sundae. Yum. Service was attentive. Morton’s is a chain and I’m doubtful we will return as 1) no location near us, 2) if traveling we likely would try somewhere else and 3) prefer other chain steakhouse overall. Please note we purchased a $100 bottle of wine, a beer, and a glass of champagne...we aren’t afraid to spend money it just didn’t seem like anything too special or unique to spend on.
Our favorite steakhouse in the Coachella Valley. Not only is the food amazing, and the drinks fabulous, but you are always treated like family, even when the place is packed, which is very often. This is a high energy, happening restaurant, good for family, friends, special occasions and date nights. While Morton's is famous for their prime steaks, fresh seafood and opulent souffles, they also have a revolving list of special seasonal appetizers and entrees as well. On this occasion my wife and I split a Morton's salad (much like a Caesar's salad on steroids) with extra anchovies, while munching on Morton's famous freshly baked bread and creamy butter. We then shared an 8 oz. lobster tail, and the highly recommended Cajun Rib Eye, a huge succulent prime steak that has been marinated to be even more flavorful, as well as the seasonal side dish of truffled mashed cauliflower (lobster mac and cheese, creamed spinach, and crispy onion rings are other favorites of ours). We were stuffed, so we reluctantly passed on dessert - try to save room if you can - they will pack leftovers for you to go if you ask. At least have an after dinner drink as we did if you are too full for dessert. What a meal!
Rocky are server was fantastic!
Eric runs a great restaurant. Amazing experience.
Steak houses have gotten very expensive. There was nothing on the menu less expensive than $50. That said, once you got over the price, the service and food was amazing. We took our 9 and 12 year olds and the staff was great with them. The three of us split the porterhouse for 2 and it was a perfect amount of food
Rocky and David make for a great time with great service and food
Food, service and ambiance were excellent. My only complaint is that the lobster bisque was too watery and the sauce for the crab cake was too rich and needed more lemon to add dimension. The steak and potato were exceptional and so was desert. We appreciate the beautiful picture that was taken of, and printed for, us that evening. We will definitely be back!!
We were visiting Palm Desert for our 30th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful meal, with fabulous food and wonderful service in a lovely atmosphere. We hope to make our trip to Palm Desert an annual event, and will definitely include a visit to Morton's The Steakhouse in our plans!
I have been to Morton’s Palm Desert many times. Unfortunately, this time the food was not hitting on all cyclers. Several dishes were not very warm, but others fine. Overall, I still enjoy dinning at Morton’s Palm Desert.
Fabulous - would recommend it for special occasions and when you want to be pampered.
Food was good. Service was excellent. We asked for a seat away from the kitchen and they put us next to it. Tons to tables farther away when we got there and when we left. Won't go again.
Overall excellent service, only issue was, I asked while being seated if we could have a booth and was told it’s for reserve, 30 minutes later a family came in and asked for a booth, they were told it was for reserve but was allowed to move, not fair at all.
Waiter did not stop by table once after taking our order. The salmon was undercooked.
Great food & service. Portions are generous & perfect for sharing. From the time we walked in until the time we walked it felt elegant but welcoming. A truly memorable experience
food was great,to bad our waiter was mia..missing in action,we were done eating it took 15 minutes before anybody removed our empty plates.when you spend 200 for 2 people to eat dinner you expect a little better service.
Steaks were underdone/raw!
Tony and the staff were great. The food was to die for. I had the 6 oz. fillet mignon mix, which had shrimp and scallops and my husband had the 8oz fillet mignon with a side of asparagus. Tony asked if it was a special occasion, since he saw us exchange gifts, so we said yes. We were celebrating our 11th anniversary. They took a complimentary photo and also gave us a complimentary desert which was delicious. We love this place!
Morton's was always our favorite place to go for our anniversary. We have dined at many over the years but this was by far the worst dining experience. Very disappointed. May have to switch to Ruth's Chris.
Outstanding food and service. Great restaurant for a special occasion.
Excellent food and service.
We went to dinner to celebrate our respective birthdays (Jan and Feb) and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. We both ordered the Landry Members-Only special, Filet and Lobster, for dinner. Our steaks were perfect, one medium and the other medium rare. The lobster was firm, sweet and delicious. We ordered the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer which was very tasty. Our server highly recommended those! And for dessert, we pre-ordered a Grand Mariner soufflé which was “to die for”!
Our server was very knowledgeable and very efficient. The atmosphere was quiet, not too busy because we went at 5:30pm, but easy to talk to one another over dinner, which is always nice.
Obviously, we had a perfect experience! One of our favorite restaurants in the desert.
Bday dinner for my Fiancée’s Father
we had a few issues with the food. Undercooked lamb, wrong soup delivered. Otherwise, OK place but very expensive. The au gratin potatoes were incredible.
Very Welcoming staff for a first time visitor Reception desk was wonderful
We had the filet and lobster special for January. Service was very good. Waiter was engaging, informative and attentive without hovering. Food was great except for the chocolate layer cake. That was dry with “frosting” that was really layers of straight chocolate candy. Beet salad and lobster bisque were excellent and cheesecake dessert was very good too. Dining room was busy but not overly noisy.
