Too many children with oblivious parents. No action by staff. No dress code enforcement.

Great location for steak dinner. And they have an outdoor terrace where smoking is allowed. That is a rare find in this town. Highly recommended.

It was a 3+ hour epic experience. There was something very wrong at the restaurant. Our servers were kind - but it was clear things were not running smoothly. We will not go back.

We went to celebrate Father's Day. We were pleased by the relaxed atmosphere. There was a good crowd, but it was not super noisy. It was a lovely evening and we would have preferred to sit outside, but, unfortunately, cigar smoke prevented us doing that. The atmosphere was quite low key and relaxing. We were shown to a booth, which was a bit of a challenge for us to get in and out of, since we're not as trim as we once were. Service was a bit slow, and the waitress apologized several times for that, being a holiday, they were understaffed. (Note to self: beware restaurants on holidays) We were pleased pretty much by quality of the food. If we had ordered the Father's Day specials for $59 each, I think we would have been served sooner and enjoyed a better value. As it was, my husband opted for the crabmeat cocktail (which was pretty straightforward, but nothing special). I had the lobster cocktail which I thoroughly enjoyed, but wanted to save room for my rib chop, so did not finish it. We ordered horseradish mashed potatoes (disappointing--too heavy on the horseradish) and sauteed spinach with mushrooms (okay). I was very disappointed with my steak, as I was perfectly cooked, but not really tender. Perhaps it was the cut. I had not had one before, but I'm a rib eye fan, and thought I was getting an upgrade. My husband's filet was fine, although he was not overjoyed with it. For dessert he had vanilla ice cream. He ordered expresso, but they brought him just regular coffee and he was disappointed. I had the chocolate mousse, which was very nice, and no coffee. Their house bread--onion brioche--was a special treat, so we took that home, as well. I had a glass of Reisling and my husband, who does not drink alcohol, had the San Pellegrino. With tip, it all came to $275. I feel like for that price, I should have been thrilled. I might return, but will be more judicious in my choices next time and avoid holiday crowds.

Great décor, odd that the lights are so very low. An older gentleman was telling jokes to his friend right behind us and practically yelling. Steak was excellent. Sides were good but not great. They need to freshen them up a bit in today's veggie world (have some roasted veggies that are not in cream other than potatoes). Still overall a very good dinner. One of the large round tables in the middle of the room (though it wobbled a bit).

Easter Dinner

Service was Amazing. Really appreciated the attentiveness of the Wait Staff. Food was good, with a nice mix of entrees. My steak was perfect. I would say a smidge over priced when compared to comparable steakhouses, but I will add it to my list of go-to’s

The food was excellent as expected. The service was excellent as expected. I ordered a bone-in filet and a souflee for dessert. I did not enjoy the crab cocktail, but my date did. I think next time I rather order the shrimp cocktail. I also got envious seeing orders of onion rings go by. I ordered the wedge salad and baked potato as my sides, my date shared my salad and enjoyed his order of brussel sprouts. The bread at the very beginning was amazing with perfectly softened butter. Everything was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our steaks. The ladies bathroom was the only point of disappointment for me, I felt it lacked style in comparison to the rest of the restaurant.

Steak cut had a lot of fat - just think for the price the quality of the meat was not there. This was true for both our prime cuts.

The food was consistently good and although the dessert (which was ordered at the start of the meal) took a while to arrive, the Hot Chocolate Cake was my favorite and worth the wait. For a relaxing evening Morton’s is the place to be, quiet and elegant, great service and delicious food.

What stood out for me was the service. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and personable. He was able to help advise us on selections his recommendations of the Brussels sprouts and Lyonnaise potatoes were spot on! He made us aware of highlights on the menu and suggested many options without seeming pushy. I had a mixed a grill and both the steak and the seafood were cooked perfectly. The side options were numerous and delicious. My only complaint is that the restaurant is on the second level of a business building without a noticeable sign so it was tricky to locate.
