    We loved the place, they have such a great customer service, very friendly. Took my wife for date night and they gave us some nice menu’s with a special note I requested and that was a very surprising and special to my wife! The only issue we had is that we both ordered steaks and we both ask for medium and with a special sauce, her steak was well done and no sauce even tho she wanted one (they charge us for the sauce) and mine was almost well done and came with some totally different sauce i wanted garlic one and it came with some spicy one. We did told our server that it wasn’t what we wanted and it was just a I’m sorry I’ll bring you some garlic sauce on the side. Wife eat her well done steak and I eat some of mine. For bean a steak house this is not a good experience at all.

    The service was excellent, the ambiance is lovely. We had a speaker in close proximity to our table which made it difficult to hear each other over the music, it could be turned down a bit so you can have a conversation without being too loud. The food quality was excellent, except for the onion bread loaf was odd. We had the 14oz. dry-aged ribeye steaks cooked to perfection! Our sides were sautéed Brussels sprouts and Gouda bacon au Gratin potatoes (potatoes were divine), however they were both under cooked, not a big deal for us, they took care of it immediately. Overall we enjoyed our experience, value as to be expected for an upscale dining experience.

    Ambiance: Nice intimate dining area. Good sized bar area for a steakhouse. Service: The staff was great! Just seemed short staffed as with many restaurants. Food: The lamb chops were so tasty and cooked to perfection. We asked for med-rare. Oddly to say, their onion rings are really good. Not too much breading and a nice crunch. The key lime pie is delicious. The steak bites, crab cakes and wedge salad were good just didn’t stand out as the best. The happy hour wine was not drinkable in my opinion…the smell itself made us not want to drink it. For a higher end steakhouse, you’d think even the hh wines would be good. Overall: We will come back.

    The food was great... the steak was among the best that I've had. The sides and appetizers are less extravagant than other high end steakhouses, but I found Morton's to have better value than other steakhouses.

    Reservation was at 8:15pm, we were seated by 8:20pm. Although we got our drinks fast and they were good. It took us 2 hours to get our food by time it came out most of it was cold. They took off a few things and offered us “complementary desserts” upon looking at the bill we were charged for the desserts. They also offered us complementary drinks, they were watered down. The server was great and did his job perfectly.

    Food was mediocre. The soup was served barely room temperature, potatoes had an odd flavor compared to what they normally taste like, and my steak was significantly under cooked. The service was wonderful. Ambience was great though

    Overall a solid steakhouse with fair prices for large cuts of steak. That being said though, both my partner and I's steaks were a bit on the fattier side than we preferred and I also felt mine was slightly too charred. I understand that the way they fire steaks results in a charred steak, but it was a bit too much grizzle. It was a delicious steak nonetheless minus those qualities. I also got the bacon wrapped scallops enhancement which I would recommend. Two scallops for $15 is a good deal. Also, the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with balsamic and arugula salad was tasty.

    First time here and won’t be the last. Took my wife for her birthday and it couldn’t have been a better experience. The food was exquisite , but the service was superior. We ordered The Valentine’s special (2 lobster tails and a 28oz bone-in NY) and they did not disappoint. My wife had never had lobster before and now there is a standard that will be hard to beat. The NY strip was cooked to perfection and the accompanying sauces just enhanced the taste. Our server, Nick, made this truly an epic experience. He was so attentive and helpful throughout the entire dinner. His suggestions and recommendations were so helpful. He took great care of us and we’re very thankful. The dinner was great but the experience is what we will compare future dinings to. The bar has been set pretty high. Thank you Morton’s and a very special thanks to Nick.

    Morton’s is always consistent and steaks are cooked to perfection. I had a party of nine and our waiter was less than acceptable. Had to consistently hunt him down to get service. I personally poured 75% of all wine and champagne to everyone at the table. Still tipped 20% but seriously considered not tipping on a $1600.00 tab.

    The waiter Korey was right, the restaurant had some of the best steak! My hubby is a carnivoure, so we like to new places but had been mainly visiting Bull Burboun at Sycuan Casino. This place topped it off with a cherry on the top.

    Morton's is just spectacular!!! We were a party of 6, and we all had such a good time. From cocktails (super), to appetizers - meatballs WOW, french onion soup DELISH, crab bisque YEAH, all the way to mains from Steaks, Crab Cake...just splendid and top notch! Desserts were just darn fine - our table enjoyed two Souffle's, which were off the chart. We'll be coming back next time we're in San Diego!

    Adam (and the young lady he was training, sorry I forgot her name) was amazing! We went for my wife’s birthday and our reservations were later in the night. Even though the kitchen and bar would be closing soon, he made sure our food was fresh and never made us feel to be in a rush to leave. Food was delicious! Overall, great experience!!

    I just want to start out by saying I love Morton's normally. This was our first time in the San Diego location and unfortunately this was a disappointment. The good things our waitress was super nice and the hostess was so sweet. The bad it was soooo freezing inside this restaurant. I mean freezing to the point that I had to keep my jacket fully zipped up and use my husbands jacket to wrap around my legs it was freezing. It was like it was already cold outside and they had the AC blasting on the inside. It almost seemed colder inside the restaurant then outside which is crazy in the middle of winter. So how does that affect your food well it was instantly cold. Came out great but within five minutes it was cold. Additionally the wait time for your food was sooo long. We were literally in the restaurant for almost 2.5 hours not because we took long to eat it was that it just took forever to get our food. Sorry to say but we won't be coming back to this location.
