The food, in particular the porterhouse, was wonderful. Our waiter and the staff were very attentive. Add a dessert “on the house” for my wife’s birthday, it was a great dinner.

Steak was more on a dry side and service not as attentive as we’re used to in some other locations. Overall OK, but most likely will not visit this location again.

Probably the best Morton’s I have visited. This is closest to the Chicago original (minus two tons of mahogany and cigar smoke). Food excellent, outstanding service and great cocktails.

The steaks were delicious. The lobster bisque was adequate and the creamed spinach was good. However, the salad was tasteless and the chocolate cake was terrible. Not what you'd expect for $200+ for 2, inuding one cocktail each.

Mortons has old school ambiance with low lighting and dark decor. The food is reliably good. I enjoyed a perfectly cooked "medium-rare plus" NY strip. The broccoli side was fresh and crunchy. The appetizers and sides will generally be a bit heavy. We would have gotten the brussel sprouts but they are made in bacon fat with bacon bits. All in all a great dining option.

My wife and I enjoyed the mixed grill with a side of sour cream mashed potatoes, and the raspberry souffle for dessert. With wine and coffee, it was a delightful meal for Landry's restaurant week.

Had an awesome dinner at Morton’s. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Wasn’t crazy about the Brussels sprouts so they took it off the bill!! What an awesome thing to do!! Service was excellent!! Highly recommended!!!

We've been coming to this Mortons since it first opened and have always loved it but it seems to have slipped a bit. I feel like it's so expensive that everything should be absolutely perfect and it really wasn't. Our waiter was good but seemed a bit distracted and while the food was very good, it wasn't amazing. At this price point, there are better steak houses in town.

Had six of us there on a Sunday night so not real packed I expect it gets louder like most steakhouses do. I know we were loud. Been a long time since I was at Mortons been going to RC but that is going to change, very good food and service was great. The porterhouse for two was just perfect. Carol had the Sea Bass which she said was wonderful. Everything down to the dessert was great.

Overall it was okay. Some of my food was forgotten until I had to remind someone. The creamed spinach smelled funny and had a funny taste. It wasn’t bad but I wouldn’t go back though. It just wasn’t worth the price !!

Morton's is a first class steakhouse. We were seated in a large spacious dining area, very promptly given menus and soon after our orders were taken. The chopped house salad was excellent. The bread was very good -- really a special treat. I believe it was called onion egg bread. It was served piping hot and was delicious. We each had the filet mignon -- and it was perfectly prepared. The side order of creamed spinach was delicious. We ordered wine by the glass. The pricing of the wine was, I am sorry to say, very unreasonable. So, I ordered a glass of Drama Red Blend @ $17 per glass. A bottle of this wine at retail is $9.99! My wife had a Rose (Lisa Vanderpump) @$14 per glass, and that wine was about $14 at retail! The wine pricing is the sole criticism I have of what otherwise was an excellent dinner. For dessert we split a NY cheesecake. It was incredible, OMG good. It had a terrific fruit garnish and a creme brulee like topping. Yummy! Dinner was about $125 per person (including taxes and gratuity). Pricey, but (aside from the wine by the glass) it was a good value considering the ratio of price to quality.

Overpriced food and small portion of surf and turf. Vegetarian plate was very large but Almost no choices for a vegetarian to eat. Service was excellent. Chocolate mousse was overbeaten and grainy.

Wonderful visit with two other couples. From the warm greeting by Todd, the manager, and Raphael our server to the presentation of the options on the menu it was a wonderful evening. The food made it even more special. There was a Labor Day special available, the choices of which were outstanding. We all left with some leftovers which we enjoyed yesterday.
We have always enjoyed Morton's and will return.

We shared our experience with my sister, Virginia Brockett of Columbia, Maryland and she and her husband of 60 years went to your Baltimore site for dinner Saturday evening and had a great experience. We both have eaten great meals at great places at home and abroad The Steakhouse meals were second to none.

The original intend was to have the 2lb lobster special and a couple of drinks for dinner. Started with the beefsteak tomato and bleu cheese to start and it was awesome. Fresh and tasty. During this time, the water glasses stayed empty and I keep asking the waiter for a fork, more water, can we order drinks? The waiter finally did tell us the specials which included a NY strip steak medley (kobi, organic and usda certified). Created our own surf and turf with the steak and lobsters.
The waiter never told us which steak was which.
Waited 10 minutes for lobster deconstruction tools.
Drinks were empty and no one asked if we wanted more.
Terrible service but great food.
Skipped my favorite chocolate dessert because we had had enough. 10% tip. Went to Kramer’s in DuPont circle for dessert.

The food at Morton's is consistently good. We went during Restaurant week, and the value was outstanding. My only negative comment was that with all the fine food and attentive service, the silverware on the table was rather sparse. No one's table set with butter knives for the always served loaf of bread, spreading butter defaults to the provided steak knife. And for dessert - one spoon per person - so my dessert spoon had to do double duty between savoring my cool chocolate mousse and stirring my hot coffee.
