Restaurant week Menu was really good this year. The double Pork chop and 8oz Filet Mignon were so delicious. We spent extra on sauces and grey goose martinis. Excellent night!

Went to celebrate a special birthday with family. Guess we chose the wrong night. Lovely that they give you a personalized menu that says happy birthday with the date on it. Unfortunately it was one day off, wrong date! Service was awful. Our server was either stressed from being short staffed or is desperate need of a medication for ADHD. Would take an order or request from one of us then FLED without taking other requests or orders. This happened on numerous occasions. Needless to say dinner took forever. Another server did say they were very short staffed. This is not the Hortons we have ever been accustomed to. Could be Covid related? Very disappointing to say the least. A 600$ dinner with poor service????

Mortons Steak House is our favorite restaurant in San Diego. We had the Miso Chilean Sea Bass and a prime rib plate. The food, service and ambiance is always at the top of the mountain. I can’t say enough about this restaurant,

The best filet mignon Ive ever had! A light crust on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. We always get the mushrooms and mashed potatoes on the side.

All the steaks are wonderful, cooked to perfection. My favorites are the porter house and the bone-in rib eye. Sides are delicious. The wine least is very complete and with options for every budget and every taste. The attentiveness, warmth and efficiency of the waiting staff is fantastic, especially Alicia, Jennifer and Tim. Going to Morton's never gets old!!!

Drinks and bread came out within 5 mins of ordering. Placed our order for steaks and 2 sides. After waiting for 30 mins, our steaks came out but no sides. By the time 1 of the sides arrived my husband and I already finished our steaks. The side (asparagus) was cold, soggy, and salty. We returned it. 10 mins later our 2nd side (lobster mac & cheese) arrived: By this time we were over our Morton’s experience and requested a to go box. The waiter was very apologetic and kept saying he didn’t know why our food took so long. By the way, the restaurant wasn’t busy and it seemed like everyone was getting their food in a timely manner.

Thank goodness the bartender came to our table as Tom was unaware he was our server. Very embarrassing for him an us. Tom did remind us the company paid for the anniversary cake an ice cream...never did get the anniversary menu but wasn’t waiting another minute there! Wish we had the service the people in front of us had, maybe we needed to wear our prom dresses for that service. BTW...the phone rang the whole time. Never again will we return.

Everything about this experience was nearly perfect. I am a big “Foodie” and was excited to try Morton’s. We ordered the 12 oz. Filet and two lobster tails with grilled asparagus on the side. The steak was cooked to perfection with a great char on the outside. The chocolate lava cake is a must.

Service was great. Wine was great. Ambiance was great. The only area for improvement was the loud phone ringing constantly. Perhaps an ear piece for the host?? This would allow diners to fully enjoy the experience without the phone ringing off the hook.

Celebrating special occasions at Morton’s is always a treat.

I know my son enjoyed his birthday dinner with two of his favorite people - his mom and his daughter and at one of his favorite restaurants.

The steaks were the BEST and worth the splurge...

As always, the food was superb, the service was excellent and the ambiance was romantic. Besides celebrating our birthdays and anniversary there every year we enjoy an evening out in the gaslamp area enjoying our meal at Morton's Steakhouse, San Diego.

Josh assist manager seated us at our table, great conversationalist and always a cheerful person. The evening was perfect with soft music and great service. We had the surf and turf dinner which included a juicy delicious steak, baked potato scallops lobster tail salad and key lime pie. What a feast. Thank you again for a lovely evening.

I love Morton’s. Have been to this location before but was underwhelmed this time. The service was great as always but the taste of the food was just not quite like the usual. The steak was a little over cooked and dry. The side dishes just didn’t pop like I always expect them to. The potatoes were lukewarm at best and the corn seemed to be missing an ingredient. It was not a bad meal by any means but just not Morton’s quality that I have come to expect. I understand the times in which we live force restaurants to make changes and I don’t hold it against them. I just long for the best steak around and I usually find it here. I will be back to try again.

Donovan's was our goto for special occasions and were very upset to see them close their doors :(. If you are looking for an alternative steakhouse to Donovan's this resaurant is it! We absolutely loved everything about Morton's and are repeat customers. If you loved Donovan's like we did and are looking for a new place don't hesitate.....Morton's is great :).
