I am sad to have to say this but this was our first time at Morton’s and we were not pleased with our experience there. We waited at our table for 15 to 20 minutes until a waiter came and took our order..when we got our food the quality was not what we thought to be. Hoping for a better experience in the future

Food was exception. We especially enjoyed the shrimp Alexander appetizer and street corn side dish. The waiter disappeared for awhile so we had to ask the manager to order dessert. Another waiter came and took care of us.

Mostly delightful. The bar was out of my favorite gin, that doesn't seem excellent. It's not an unusual brand. The martini was not icy cold. It was cool. That's not excellent. Our server, Amy, was nice and lovely and knowledgeable and good. They've taken escargot off the menu and that is dreadful. Chef cheerfully split our salads and baked potato. We were seated next to a private room that had doors which were left open and some loud dinner party that kept spilling out to our booth and those folks were VERY boisterous. I wish we'd been seated somewhere quieter. Not my best Morton's experience, but pretty good. Steak was cooked to rare perfection, as usual. No souffles yet. :-(

My husband and I do love Morton's but only go on special occasions. It was our anniversary but Morton's didn't seem to know that. I know I put it on OpenTable when I made the reservation. At any rate, the service was good and the food was outstanding. My husband was a little disappointed in their bourbon selection and the server had some piece of paper that was handwritten with other choices on it. That was a bit odd. We did enjoy our evening and would definitely go back.

When my wife and I sat down we noticed that the entire staff would just stand in the back looking at the people sitting down eating their dinner. At times every time I looked up there was someone watching me eat and my wife had the same experience. If there’s nothing to do wife the staff they should relocate to a different area to prevent people from feeling uncomfortable.

Arrived to be told no Tomahawk, should have really paid for the drinks and left. Advised to have the Porterhouse, 42oz. It really was average at best, and thats being generous. When you eat at Mortons, you want to be wowed, that that streak does not wow you.

Side were fine, and hot choc desert worth the wait, but for a streak house, its needs to delver more. Back to Ruth Chris and their Tomahawk.

Service was impeccable. Morton Salad was awesome. The Brussel Spouts and Matchstick FF with Truffle and Parmesan were outstanding. We split a Tomahawk steak and had them slice it. The steak was cooked to perfection. However 2 things were not great. The steak was 'under seasoned' and they sliced the steak into too narrow of slices. Should be 1/2" thick. So everything was just outstanding other than the signature steak - so a little disappointed.

Very happy to have a traditional steak meal at Mortons. Nice to see them open and actually quite busy.

Food was outstanding. In-bone Filet was great, and we split with a Lobster tail. I will say I am glad we split the lobster tail. It was small, and if I had ordered as a meal, I would have been dissapointed. Splitting the two was perfect meal for two.

Service was attentive, but a little rehearsed. Our server could relax a little. I got the feeling she was speed reading her script, but very attentive.

Atmosphere was good. Almost pre-COVID.

Wine by the glass was okay. I think they could up their quality and keep the prices still in line.

Having moved from Phoenix several years ago we made a special trip to Morton's for our anniversary - it's not what we remember. In Phoenix, it was always expensive but ALWAYS an experience - worth it. This was just standard steakhouse experience, nothing special or unique.

One thing that did stand out was when our waiter offered us a chance to open a Landry's credit card at the end of the meal. That was new... (we declined)

After many enjoyable evenings at Morton's, this one was not.

For starters, we had to cancel our reservation for Saturday because of the ice storm. I was told by a rude person on the phone that it would cost $100 if we didn't show up or reschedule, but we could reschedule only for Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. So we rescheduled for Monday. I wondered, though, if the restaurant had closed because of the storm, would all of us with reservations have received $100 from the owners?

At dinner, we ordered a lobster bisque, a 16 oz. NY strip, medium well, with lobster tail, a filet, medium, and a baked potato to split. There was no lobster bisque. OK. Sometimes they run out of things. When the waiter brought the food, he had two strips, no potato, no filet, and no lobster. Both steaks were extremely rare.

I asked that mine be taken back and cooked some more, and asked for my lobster tail. My wife acquiesced rather than wait longer. The potato was brought while I waited.

When the waiter returned, he brought what looked like an 8-10 oz. strip, a room temperature lobster tail -- and a filet that my wife had specifically said there was no need to prepare, as she was eating the strip.

The waiter bagged the filet and we ended up taking it home.

We were charged a full price for this debacle.

Mistakes happen. It was a fairly busy holiday night. But I expect a lot more from Morton's. This was a subpar performance from beginning to end, with no substantive effort to remedy the mistakes.

Most unusually -- or maybe not -- not one manager stopped by our table to ask how our dinner was. In probably two dozen visits to Morton's over the years, that was the first time that ever happened. Maybe they knew and didn't want to ask.

This was a special birthday celebration. I called ahead for special help, which they intelligently and gladly helped with. Arrival at the restaurant revealed other special touches in addition to the exceptional food and service. the entire experience left the birthday boy feeling totally pampered and for me it was the best thing I could have done for his birthday. Kudos to Morton's in Reston!!!

Food was very good, as always is, but had one issue that being the truffle butter. It was a bit expensive for what we received and seemed a little old - taste wise. The steaks and the grill asparagus was excellent.
