    We thought it odd that there was a summer menu in the front of the restaurant and it was never presented or offered to us. Our server seemed to know nothing about it

    My $79 steak was tough! Background music was too loud to have a conversation but I think we were seated very close to a speaker perhaps? Way too much money for experience and food.

    I love a restaurant when my water glass is never empty. At least 4 different servers kept it full for me, which tells me the staff k led what service really is. Food excellent! Our waiter JB was exceptional and Wine was reasonably priced . A perfect dining experience.

    Ryan was very attentive to our table and refills our drinks without asking us. The food is superb. I order the prime ribeye and hubby had fillet mignon and lobster tail. It’s a pretty big size for the started too. We loved all the food ordered and we had free desert cause it’s our anniversary. It’s my husband 1st time there and he loved it. Not hard to find parking as well.

    Service was great we had the memorial day pre fix dinner. A great value at $65 per person. I had wedge salad which was fresh crisp and delicious pork chop and asparagus both cooked to perfection and key lime pie for dessert. My dining partner had shrimp cock tail filet mignon loaded baked potato and chocolate mousse. All were delicious and cooked to order

    Nice, our table was distracting. My view was the host stand and the server drama. Way too close to entrance and main entrance. We asked for another option. No. Bummer.

    Very good high end restaurant. Excellent food and service. Recorded music maybe a little loud but not intrusive. Overall a little too pricey for the experience - different if we were in NY, Paris, Rome, etc. but pretty hefty for San Diego. Valet partking also steep at $22 + tip. NOTE: valet cost can be added to reestaurant bill, but that can lead to including the valet cost when calculating a tip for the restaurant service.

    We got there when it opened and was seated right in front of the cooking area. Employees were having conversations behind our table and were leaning and holding on to the booth we were sitting at. Unprofessional to say the least. Steak was over cooked but I didn’t want to make an issue about it because my dad enjoyed his meal. Service was good, but overall experience was mediocre.

    The restaurant was quite crowded for Mother's Day. When seated, we were spaced fine. However, the server was setting up the table next to us and opened it from a table of 4 to a round for a table of 6-8 which put chairs (and eventually) other patrons literally on top of us. We did ask to move to a table adjacent to us to create space for us and the incoming party. The server simply moved our table a bit away which seemed fine. The larger party came in and felt they were snug in their set-up and asked to slide the table toward us, once again creating zero spacing which we were trying to avoid prior to their seating. The server seemed not to comprehend the situation, so I asked to have the manager Josh come over. Without event having to explain the situation to Josh, he observed the awkward set-up and immediately moved my family out to a booth and accommodated spacing for us as well as the large party. Having Josh back to San Diego and now running San Diego, has been a HUGE bonus. We have been coming to Morton's for 26 years and Josh understands the value of the customer experience - HE GETS IT! He rescued the evening! As always, the food was great, and the experience was great - and as a longtime patron, the experience is what keeps us coming back.

    Food was fantastic 👌🏼 We ordered the ribeyes, and sides of sour cream mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, and caesar salad. Our server JB was excellent. He made sure our food is to our liking (taste, temperature and all that). Mother’s day dinner with the family was just perfect.

    Oysters were fresh but nothing special tasteless.. Order the Tomahawk to share it took forever apparently a kitchen problem.. and with no explanation we received the bone-ribeye .. very good but not the size we were expecting at this time we wanted to eat ... at least they charged us correctly for the Ribeye We were there looking for a treat after a long week but it ended up being Far from special..
