Morton's The Steakhouse - San Diego Ratings and Reviews
It’s pretty loud inside for a fine dining experience. Our potatoes were really bland. I expected the steak to taste like a$50 steak instead of something I could have made at home. I’m personally underwhelmed and will see myself doing Donovan’s or Ruth Chris over Morton’s.
Our server was amazing in her thorough knowledge of all foods and their preparation and ingredients. Her familiarity with special items like the 10oz New York, which I ordered was to her credit. Only the baked potato, which I and a guest shared seemed to be a bit dry.
I went with a couple of friends for a birthday celebration. Unfortunately, the service was poor. We had to remind the waiter we were supposed to get bread at the table, twice we had to remind him we ordered Pellegrino water, and the manager had to clear the appetizer plates from the table because they sat there so long. It's not like they were super busy, either.
The consensus was the food was decent, but not great. For the price, we expected better. My escargot appetizer was only fair; I've had better, I've had worse. The 6 oz filet was cooked just as requested. The bacon-wrapped scallops were delicious. Gordon Ramsay would say they were overcooked, but I like them that way. The birthday boy received very tasty dessert. Since we didn't order it, we were surprised it showed up on the bill.
Overall, the experience was nice, but could have used better service.
Special thanks to Tim (manager) for accommodating us. We were unable to get the ideal time slot through the website or third party site and I called and he made it happen. Tim saved the night as I had waited too long to make reservations and we had a concert immediately following dinner. Amazing dinner and our waitress Jennifer was attentive and helpful with her suggestions.
Should have seen the red flag at the hostess station when we waited 10 min to talk to the hostess. It was empty with only 1 couple in front of us. Finally got seated and ordered. Salad was fine, but ordered lemons with it and they arrived once the salad was finished. When the food arrived it was luke warm and had to send it back to get warmed up. Ordered espresso and when it came, 10 min after I ordered it, and 2 reminders to the server, had no spoon to stir it. Manager apologized, bought me a port, but wouldn't go back. Excuse was understaffed on Friday. If you look at Open Table, it has graphed the busy times and days of the week, which Friday at 7:30 was the busiest, but the Manager didn't know that????? Come on man, wake up!!
Wait Staff was on top of their Game w/o interruption & Excellent service. They were always there when you needed them! A superb Quality environment for family & friends! Loved it & I couldn't have asked for Better dinning experience! Thank You!............Daryl Kirby
This was to be a special night out. We were warmly greeted but the evening went downhill from there. Our server was attending to a large party across the room so very difficult to get her attention. My steak was undercooked and we had to flag down another server who immediately returned my steak to the kitchen. Unfortunately, it was no more cooked when it was returned to me. The rest of the meal was "ok". Very disappointing for a $300 evening.
We had many choices of places to dine that evening. I'm sorry I chose this one.
We took advantage of the Landrys surf and turf dinner. The dining area was very attractive and dimly lit. Our waiter was excellent checking back frequently and bringing us suggestions of great options to order. The food was perfectly prepared and attractively presented. Very enjoyable!
We were enjoying our last evening in San Diego after a three week visit with family and friends. The fillet/lobster combination was exceptional along with the service. Located downtown, there was a lot of business dinning but plenty of room for personal tables without having to shout or listen to others comments. Bottom line---not cheap but worth every penny and I plan to go back.
Overall, everything was great. Was surprised that server removed unfinished bread without asking, but other than that, food and service was great. A little too noisy to carry on a conversation without raising voices...maybe lowering music a tad would habe been helpful. Nice restaurant. Close to all the hotels and convention center.
Overall a really great dining experience. The restaurant is a little dark and surprisingly noisy. Wait staff was first rate; the food was excellent but overall value made it seem a little pricey. The food was genuinely, not like a nouvelle cuisine, just well executed, solid steakhouse fare. This was Christmas dinner as we were far from home; in a week of restaurants it was a comfort to find a nice, normal meal.
