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.

Food was not suitable for eating, steak was burnt on the outside & rear on the inside. The corn was burnt, and the lobster mac & cheese taste like it came out the microwave. The only thing we enjoyed was the salad & the cocktails .

If you want an evening of good food and good service, Morton's is always a good choice if you are looking for steak with all the usual accessories - wedge salad, baked potato. Have been to the San Diego location several times and have always walked away with a good feeling for the evening (although the wallet has taken something of a hit).

I always order the Miso Sea Bass and it didn’t disappoint! My daughter had the 6 oz filet and she said it was like butter! She said the sear was perfect and the seasoning was just right. The street corn was a hit, as were the asparagus and baked potatoes. My husband’s shrimp linguini was delicious and our guest said his lobster was done to perfection! Always a great meal and worth the drive!

All time favorite;Never fails!
Shrimp Alexander, crab cake And scallops wrapped in bacon as appetizer. The filet mignon was cooked at the perfect temperature, the baked potato and sautéed mushroom as sides are great also.

Morton’s is our go to steak restaurant. The food and service is always excellent.
The only negative was both the type of music and the volume, it was not conducive to a romantic dinner with conversation, I mentioned it to the server she said they don’t pick the music that’s done by corporate but they do control the volume which she didn’t adjust.

Absolutely one of the best Steakhouses.
Consistently excellent food (Steaks...if you prefer chicken, go somewhere else).
Very friendly staff, terrific Host.
They do get busy and the service slows down.
That's a management problem.
Don't let that keep you away.

Server Ryan was amazing and knowledgeable. Host was funny but professional! Love how the staff is easy going and friendly even tho the environment is more upscale. Dinner was expensive but it was worth it. Food was absolutely delicious and came out in a timely manner. The dim lights here make the dinner you’re having feel private. Perfect for a date even tho I was out with friends.

Service and food quality was fantastic! I was a bit disappointed with how loud the restaurant music was playing which forced the noise level up. The dining room was too dark.

We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and the hostess proceeded to tell us they were running a little late and she would call us when our table was ready. The bar area had a few dirty tables open so we waited for someone to clear the dirty glasses and wipe off the table. One of the bartenders came over almost 10 minutes later to ask if we would be dining at the table or waiting for our reservation. After telling them that we are waiting they cleared the glasses but did not wipe down the table, we order our drinks before he left. Carrying the drinks and a bar towel the bartender wiped the table flipping the towel a few times and then grabbed our drinks with the same hand he used to wipe the table. We should have taken this as a sign that Morton's does not concern themselves with cleanness and that they are not worried about COVID, but instead we continued to wait for our table.

We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time and the long waits continued with our wait staff. 15 minutes went by after being seated before the waiter stopped by. After placing our order it took 35 minutes for appetizers (just soup) to arrive and another 25 minutes until the steaks made an appearance.

On the plus side the soup and steaks were fantastic, could have been influenced by hunger pains.

Even though we liked the food we had expectations that were not met due to the long delays, lack of attentive service, and that awful experience in the bar.

There is a lot of competition in the area that I will try before going back to Morton's The Steakhouse.

We were there on 04/17/2021 for my dad’s birthday. The filets were cold, our water glass got refilled when dinner was nearly over. Couldn’t even order another beer or glass of wine. Not enough servers and too many tables. If you can’t service the customers with attention, don’t open!
