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.

The food was good but my whiskey sour was not up to the usual standards of Morton’s. I always ask for 1.5 shots of your house whiskey but each time I did not get that. With that said the whiskey sour was better than most other restaurants.

Went for restaurant week. Had to ask for the restaurant week menu. Food was very good and a great value during restaurant week. Service was a bit rushed with each course coming immediately after the previous course.

We enjoyed the value of the Restaurant week specials. Our party of three enjoyed onion soup, lobster bisque ($3 up-charge) and Morton’s salad, followed by two 6oz filets and salmon. Desert included double chocolate mouse, key lime pie and the hot chocolate cake ($6 up charge, but worth it!)

Service was great.

Thank you!

You had to ask for the Restaurant Week Menu, so if you didn’t know about it was not brought to your attention. I was asked what sauce I would like with my steak and was then charged extra for it. You are not charged extra on the regular menu. Not a great Restaurant Week experience with them.

My wife and I took two friends for a social dinner evening. Morton's offered three different prix fixe menus for our meal. Everyone found a great solution. The food was excellent, paired with two great wines. The service and overall experience were top notch. We will return.

Kitchen quality failure ! Very uncharacteristic evening at our favorite steakhouse. Burnt hash browns (black), remake is as not brought out because the waiter saw that the kitchen burnt them again. Filet was thin (about 1/2 an inch) and had no char on it (I’ve probably had filet here over 100 times). Looked more like a fast casual restaurant’s filet. The server and manager said it was definitely not butterflied. We left without eating dinner, turned down dessert. Total disappointment.

I really didn't like my meal. I ordered a Caesars Salad which it just tasted as lettuce with mayonnaise, I ordered a rib eye medium well (very well cooked) oscar Style, no flavor at all. Not a good experience for me. So I would never recommend Morton's.

We had a great time during our recent visit to Morton's in Bethesda. The food, service and ambiance was great. The Steak&Seafood deal was also great. We received more than enough food and couln't finish it all which meant we had enough for lunch for the next day. Will return and recommend to others. I also appreciate being a Landry Club member.

We were seated in the booth immediately in front of the kitchen and after about 20 minutes the noise level increased to a level that we could not hear each other when we spoke. Brought the situation to the attention of our waiter and within a minute the waiter and other staff moved us to another table. This was accomplished with great professionalism and even now, days later, I am in awe of the skill exhibited. Oh, went for the lobster special and it was very good. Our waiter, Steve, is a true professional. Congratulations all around.

I swore off Morton’s about a year ago. I was a regular diner there. We had terrible service there one night and the meals came out incorrectly. I spoke with the manager and he had us come out again for dinner on them. Everything was good that time but still switched to Ruth’s Chris. Being Father’s Day we asked where my in-laws wanted to eat and he chose Morton’s. Well I once again remember why we do not dine there anymore. The service was absolutely horrible and they were empty for the most part. Our waitress disappeared for 20 minutes at a time and drinks were ordered and never delivered. The appetizer was not as asked for and one of the steaks was not served correctly. I can spend 700.00 for dinner a lot of places and Morton’s is not one of them again.

I was there with 3 teenagers- grandkids- waiter seemed immediately disappointed as we were not ordering alcoholic beverages. Tables/dirty dishes cleaned after each course with delay.
Not up to my expectations with Morton’s in NY and Florida!

We went for my son’s graduation. The experience was ok. The lights are way too dimmed in my opinion. So dimmed in fact that some people of our party struggled to read the menu. The food was good (especially the shell fish) but not awesome, which instead is something that you’d expect for the price.

Excellent service from start to finish except that bottled water was not offered again after initial bottles ordered had been served. Several steaks were not cooked to requested temperature preference; one was sent back to the kitchen.

We went in to try their burger of the month, which was excellent. When we arrived the bar area was quite with just two other groups of customers and the TVs had the Nats and the Phillies playing which was perfect for me as a south jersey transplant. After we ordered, one group of customers asked that one of the two TVs playing the Phillies be changed to the basketball playoff game, that was fine since they were there before us and the Phillies game was playing on one of the other two TVs. However, just before our food arrived another couple came in and asked to change the Phillies game to hockey playoffs - this was done without asking the existing customers were okay with the change. When I asked to change the TV back I was told that playoff games are priority not who arrived first. At this point I did not feel welcome at this bar as a Philadelphia fan! Disappointing experience!!
