Thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely dinner on Friday night. Our server was Ben and he did an awesome job. Recommended the bacon wrapped scallops which were spot on. Also recommended the wine which fit well with our meal. I had double lobster tails while my while enjoyed the filet. Both entrees were cooked perfectly, which is why we like going to Morton's. Being from Chicago, it is one of the classic steakhouses. Never had a bad meal there to date.

Excellent service with our server Rebecca, she did a great job and we enjoyed our delicious food!
My family loved it too, it was their first time here and the server made them feel very welcome and educated them on how to order and told us all about the freshness of the meat and sea food and was very helpful and spoke very kindly to the children in our family. We ordered steak, lobster, shrimp dishes and everything was delicious! We ordered two bottles of wine from the excellent selection available. Thank you!

My wife's steak was cooked wrong twice, but the server and the manager are really nice, they apologized and recooked the steak. The manager even took it out of the bill. The 3rd steak was cooked beautifully, and I wished they wouldve done it at the beginning.

Best steak in OC ! If you want 5 star food and service go to Mortons in South Coast Plaza, Santa Ana I highly recommend the 3 course seasonal specials an outstanding value.

I have stopped going to Morton’s some years ago because I thought the quality was on a downturn. Other friends with whom I dined had a similar experience. However, I’m very glad that I returned Monday night to the Morton’s in south coast village, encouraged by a good friend to do so. The manager cared that we were satisfied, the server was excellent, and the meal was scrumptious. A bit pricey but given the location not too bad.

We are regulars at Mortons. Love their food and service! Visited this trip on an impromptu date night. We had the special OC weekly restaurant week menu. Perfect size starter salad. We had the filet mignon. Delicious. The side were just enough. We even got dessert!

Was very underwhelmed by the service and food, from a restaurant I used to love. None of our steaks were cooked right, I asked for a house steak sauce and was asked if I wanted a-1 or Heinz! No housemade sauce? And then I was brought out an actual dirty a-1 sauce bottle which was so tacky.
My friend asked for some butter on her steak and they gave her cold butter on the side to put on her steak! (Not melted or even put on the steak)...
Only good thing was the tuna tower and the chocolate molten cake, which was heavenly and decadent. But will never return- stick to Mastros or even Flemings

Really enjoyed sitting in our theatre style seating booth people watching and enjoining some great food and wine. The sommelier recommenced the House red Raymond and it was fabulous.
Also appreciate the service from the front desk staff when we called to say we were at the wrong Morton’s and they committed to keeping our table for us. Took the stress out of the 20 minute journey. Was noisy but there was a huge conference on so was extra busy.

Service was a bit slow tonight. Took almost an hour for our soup and salad to come out and the lettuce was wilted and the tomato was not crisp. The onion soup was good. The filets were amazing. Had to ask to get my water refilled.

FANTASTIC steaks
"Twice Baked" Au Gratin Potatoes was runny and too salty
Jumbo Asparagus was bland
Scallops Appetizer the bacon overpowered the scallop
Service was nice, not perfect, they deliver all the food to the wrong person so EVERYONE had to switch plates, waitress broke the cork opening the bottle of wine so she had to get help, for the price $461 plus $100 tip for dinner for 4 people we should have had everything done better, not bad but could have been better...

We decided to visit as we hadn’t been in a while and I had received an email about twin lobster tails. We went on Friday night, 6:45 and it wasn’t too crowded. We had a chilled seafood platter appetizer that was tremendous. We split a 12 oz filet mignon and the twin tails and it was perfect. We had creme brûlée for dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Really much better than I remembered.

Oscar was our server,. He was just Ok. We had to return both steaks because they were undercooked. When they brought him back they just soak them in butter and cook them at a high flame. The steaks did not have a crust on them. I have no problem paying $70 for a steak however it’s got to be outstanding. This would never happen at Mastro’s or Capital Grille

We had a good experience even though my wife Steak was undercooked. She sent it back and it came back undercooked again. It seemed like they tried to heat up the pieces she had cut off. In the end she sent it back and they removed it off our bill. The management was very nice and responsive and tried to make things better. My bone in ribeye was excellent. Even with the minor set back with my wife, I will definitely come back.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner. I did not really enjoy the table we were assigned but the food was great. May I suggest that the waitress/waiter remind guests of the time it takes to make souffles? We did not realize that you offered souffles on the menu until the waitress brought over the dessert menu. The waitress insisted that the Chef could make it in 15 minutes - the chef burned the souffles. The waitress was kind enough to bring us two mousse desserts on the house. I appreciate the efforts nevertheless.

Came here for our anniversary to celebrate and service was not good. Our server was nowhere to be found for the first 15 mins of us sitting down. We didn’t even getdrinks until 30 minutes into our reservation. Food was great but we didn’t get to finish our meal because Marcela, our server, came up to us half way through our dinner and said “I ordered you a dessert and if I don’t bring it out now, it will die in the window, so do you want it?” I guess it was nice to of her to think of us but EXTREMELY rude to be slow and then all of a sudden rush us out of dinner.

Also we were charged $35 for a corkage fee and our server didn’t even pour it for us. Am I paying you to open it?because I can do that myself.

Besides our servers panicked dessert moment, she had no personally what so ever. Needless to say, our anniversary dinner was ruined. Thanks Mortons but we won’t be back.
