I never complain, but, Absolutely AWFUL. Bar service was horrible. In the dining room, steak and pork chops were so ridiculously over cooked and BURNED. I know it’s was Father’s Day and it was busy, but completely inexcusable. We live in the neighborhood and walk over here often. Not any more. We will go to Flemings instead.

Celebrated Father’s Day here and while the food and service was very good you would think there would have been a Fathers Day dessert or something (especially for the money you are paying) but instead we just get pitched an upsell. Will not be celebrating any special occasions here in the future.

Morton's is great steak that can be relied upon to meet the highest standards. Brian provided excellent service. With covid we understand that restaurant staff is light, it was not evident with the high quality service that Brian was able to provide. Yet, being a food server in the past I know that he could have used a back waiter, at minimum.
Paying over $700 for dinner, I know Mortons' can afford to hire the right number of staff so that our server is not breaking his back while meeting all of our needs.
Our wine and water glasses were never empty, our utensils were replaced when needed and our every need was met.
Morton's needs to hire back waiters immediately.

Nice place. Great food. Great service. Couldn't sit on the patio as it was a mess and not very attractive to look at. Maybe next time they will have it looking organized and clean? Other than that, we had a great time. We will definitely go back.

I have eaten at Morton’s many times...this date night in over a year was a huge let down.

The signature cocktail homage to original Chicago arrived without the meat garnish.

Our waiter disappeared and we were told he was dealing with challenging table.

One of the greatest dinner experiences my husband and I have had together. We celebrated our second anniversary at Morton’s and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I won’t spoil any of the surprises they have for special nights but I would recommend 10/10. The food was wonderful and the servers were honest and kind.

We had a great night with long time no see friends from out of town, the food was fantastic, a big standing ovation for the chef and his/her crew. On the opposite side, a simple accident made the experience a little uncomfortable. My wife dropped a glass of water on the table and this kind of annoyed the waiter and this is where everything started. A simple napkin was put on top of the wet are and is really uncomfortable to eat on a wet table cloth. OK we let it go and didn't say much, then our waiter disappears for long time and it is hard to find him so we had to go to next section to ask for help to get more drinks and special requests made for our food that didn't make it with the rest of the food. In summary, this is a 5 stars restaurant and the waiters get pretty good tips to deserve this type of service. I would encourage the restaurant to really put attention to service. You are an excellent choice in San Diego for a Steak House. We as customer only ask to put attention to detail so we as customer keep coming and have a great experience.

Thanks

The service was horrible. For the overall expected quality of this restaurant, the service was very poor, even after speaking to the manager. The food and atmosphere was good.

Although it was the waiters second day, and the restaurant was really busy, we ordered lemon drops and received Long Island teas which didn’t taste like Long Island, because they were watered down.Part of the food order was jumbled and they couldn’t keep up with the service. I know the server was trying to keep up but the service was atrocious at best….
We were celebrating my mother’s 83rd birthday and the waiter did pay for her dessert! Which was a very nice gesture!

The prime rib and ribeye were chewy instead of soft, melt-in-your mouth that we expected for the price.
The sides were good and the dessert was excellent.
The service was also excellent!!

Matthew was a wonderful server with a great sea server of humor, truly a pleasure. Filets were a bit tough, Cajun ribeye a bit dry miso sea bass was very well prepared and delicious. Everything was satisfactory and will return.

Loved the lobster bisque, not thick, lightly creamy with lobster pieces and great lobster flavor. My filet minion was delicious, cooked just the way I requested. We can’t stop ordering the chocolate lava cake. It’s just amazing!

The service was ok. Server didn't come often to ask how things were or if we wanted anything else.
Didn't suggest any dishes or dessert.
Our creamed spinach usually is excellent and this time was not to par. No flavor and cold.
