If you are looking for the classic Steakhouse diner. Morton's won't disappoint. From there appitizer, 9 page wine list, main course options and sides to die for. Everything we had was top shelf.

"We enjoyed the relaxed feel of this place which made it the correct restaurant to celebrate my fiancé birthday, I definitely would return The salmon was amazing and the Crab cocktail was refreshing. The sangria drinks were delightful. Service provided by Gaby and her trainee was well-timed and friendly,

The food and service were great. However as the evening progressed a different element if people came to the restaurant. They were very loud and their private body parts were exposed even though the restaurant states they have a dress code. Very disappointing.

Our server Lauren was excellent, very attentive. The food overall was enjoyable, my steak and the broccoli was a bit overcooked. The hostess was a little off... I would appreciate being thanked for dinning there!

The food was outstanding as usual at Morton's, but the service was poor. The dining room wasn't crowded on a Sunday, but our waiter was AWOL most of the time. This was unfortunate. Then she didn't get the bill divided correctly. I'm always amazed at how service can be poor when a restaurant isn't crowded. Of course, at Morton's you expect exceptional service.

Our waitress was outstanding. Food was good, although I was more impressed with the bread than I was the steak. Also, initially had reserved for outdoor seating but when we got out there it wasn’t what we expected. Ambiance lacking outside and you could smell smoke in “non smoking “ section. Lastly, didn’t seem like restaurant was firm on “business casual” dress code.

Excellent as always. Erik and Gabby are a great team.

Pork chop was great, Morton’s salad with anchovies is always good. Grilled asparagus with balsamic dressing was fantastic.

My family went to the restaurant for my daughter's graduation. The food was excellent as expected but the service was even better than expcted. Very attentive and friendly. We felt very respected as customers. My dad's hearing is pretty much gone and times can be challenging dealing with him. Our server was paitnece with him. It was a great day and our dinner at Morton's made the perfect ending.

I didn't know there was a terrac area looking donw the street. I'd like to try sitting there next time.

The food was great as always. However when I checked the bill, they made a mistake of 100 $. If I did not check the bill then I would have paid that amount as extra. In addition, as the place got busy, the service had a lot of delays.

As always, superb quality! Parents got 8 oz filet mignons w/ butter, while I got the 24 oz porterhouse. Sides were mushrooms/onions (always awesome), asparagus (definitely jumbo size), & bacon/au gratin potatoes (1st time trying/absolutely delicious). Occasion was for masters graduation. Staff made a special menu congratulating me+other small details. I selected this place bc I knew they would not disappoint & they more than delivered!

I was a bit suprised. I haven't been to that location in a long time but the terrance looks dingy and is in need of an update. The dress code was also not being enforced and there were many in jeans and baseball hats. The food, as always, was excellent. But it looks like it needs a renovation. There were also TVs throughout the terrance which seemed more like a sports bar than a fine dining Morton's experience.

It was a pleasant evening on the patio. Seating could have been better since we arrived early. Service was slow but this may have been due to COVID understaffing. Food was fine but not outstanding. Doubt I will be back.

They’ve worked hard to stay open and safe throughout this last year and it shows.

I was a party of 1. They didn't get my order correct. Then brought me the wrong check for $807. I alerted them and they assured me I would not be charged the incorrect amount. When I reviewed my account I was charged for the $807. They did not immediately offer relief other than to say to would be reverse. Terrible service....

Took over an hour to receive appetizers. First manager was very rude and dismissive to our concerns. Argued with a member of my party about her incorrectly prepared drink that was $47. Server was very kind and patient. Second manager accommodated the issues that occurred.

Very disappointed. We had a reservation for outdoor seating but were placed in a smoking section despite a request for non smoking. Had to move indoor to bar area due to cigar smoke. Diners should be aware there is cigar smoking outdoors.

Food and drinks were good. Service was terrible. Waitress took our order and we never saw her again. I had to walk up to the nearest employee (at the bar) to ask for our bill. Our group definitely felt uncomfortable with the treatment to our group specifically. Do not recommend this location.

Thank you Ann Marie for the excellent service for Mother’s Day AND my birthday! We will be back to see you! The food was awesome as always! I did initially request Gabby however I did 100% understand there may have been a possible switch because of the holiday but I do really appreciate Jenna pairing us with Ann Marie! You all are awesome!!!

Brought my mom and sister for a special treat for Mother’s Day. Service was good but a little slow, the timing of the dishes allows plenty of time inbetween courses, maybe too much. I ordered the $79 prix fixe filet medium rare, it was cooked medium well and arrived COLD. I was extremely disappointed and would have had the server get me a new steak but she didn’t check back for several minutes, so I decided to just eat the cold steak. It was enough to make me not want to return. There are too many amazing restaurants in this city to pay that much money for a cold steak.

The food and service were excellent. The restaurant was pretty empty. I think that there were about 4 tables seated inside and 3 outside. We felt very safe and socially distanced.
