    Brian was outstanding with service. Steak was cooked perfect as well as the lobster tails. Jumbo lump crab cake was not jumbo and did not have much lump crab. But overall the experience was enjoyable.

    We arrived and waited about 3 minutes until we were greeted by the host. He wasn’t rude, but he seemed preoccupied with other business. Our server was very nice and welcoming. Food was great, but unfortunately got cold a bit too soon because the AC was turned on for some reason when it was already somewhat cold due to the rain at night. Some of the patrons on that night compared to other occasions seemed to be acting like they were at a sports bar listening to their phone videos at full volume on the table next to us which became annoying after 5 minutes, let alone 30 - a bit of a rougher crowd that night with the multiple gold necklaces, piercings, and the tattoos. Not necessarily Morton’s fault though, so we can’t hold it against them. We will return, but we hope it regains the classy atmosphere it once had.

    The food was fantastic, unfortunately we had the WORST waiter I’ve seen in ages. He kept forgetting our drinks. Literally almost took 15-20 mins for our first drink Oder. Didn’t check on us much and forgot the second round AFTER our dinner was done. On the plus side this Morton’s was like others I’ve visited. On point with delicious food!!!

    This restaurant never fails to please. We had an excellent meal served by Cory, my favorite waiter. There was a special from Morton's for $89. We had a 6 oz. filet served with 2 huge bacon wrapped scallops. The meal came with our choice of salad. I had the lettuce wedge covered with blue cheese dressing and bacon bits. As a side I had their brussels sprouts prepared to perfection with grilled bacon and onions. For dessert Cory let us choose a dessert that wasn't listed on the special menu. We both watch our sugar intake, so he prepared a wonderful dish of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries with a dash of real whipped cream. Just a perfect ending to a perfect meal.

    Great experience for my husband’s 50th birthday. The staff was attentive and service was excellent. They even made special menus wishing him a happy birthday, as well as took a picture and printed it out for us! Food was delicious and we brought our own cake from Extraordinary Desserts to which the staff was wonderful about storing it and bringing it out after the meal with lit candles for him to blow out! Excellent experience overall!

    Delicious meal, ambience was romantic and the drinks were stiff. The value for the tomahawk was excellent too! Great happy hour from like 3pm-7pm. Took advantage of some discounted drinks before eating. The only challenge was getting the food at the bar out to us while we were in the bar. Other than that very tentative service.

    Christmas Eve - so not the best service, sadly. Full house, but they should know how to staff for a full house. Slow to get food, had to ask for refills. No one to take away empty plates….just disappointing.

    This was our second time dining at Morton’s, and the last two weeks. We ordered the wedge salad, which is phenomenal. And the bacon appetizer. And we both ordered for our pay in the fillet with the lobster tail and the loaded baked potato. The food was amazing. We just like to go and hang out have drinks for drinks. I ordered the lemon drop martini which is always my favorite, as well as the global wine flight which is amazing it’s $70 well worth it. And my spouse ordered the the original Manhattan that has the piece of New York strip steak which he like the drink the steak it definitely is not edible. The disappointing was the waiter, I would make suggestions, gentle nudges of what we wanted done, but he would say no. I’ve got it this way. And he failed to include our bacon appetizer and our to go bag. Which we only ate a bite or two out of. had he listened and that probably would not have happened so that ruins the experience however, we love Morton’s. We did try the Keylime pie and the cheesecake however, the Chi cheesecake one, hands-down. Can’t wait to go back!
