I've been to Morton's in other cities and this was definitely in comparison to other locations a dismal food experience. We had the iceberg salad as an appetizer, the blue cheese on top of it where 3-4 huge lumbs of cheese, but definitely not crumble and the bacon chips so hard that I wondered if my tooth filling has come...

I've been to a Mortons in Chicago, which is always very very good, but this was absolutely amazing. I had perhaps the best filet with crab that I have ever had anywhere. Our waiter had a great personality, and he timed both the food and his followup perfectly. Between the salads and the main courses, no one had any room... More

Why would you go to this location (and maybe any Morton's/Landry's-branded restaurant) when there are so many better steakhouses in the city? Since this is the end of the year, it is safe for me to say it will have been the worst steak I had in 2013. To the credit of the place, though, the iceberg wedge was good.... More

I have been to various Morton's countless times over the years and had picked their Conn. Ave. location just because of its convenience for an after work dinner. I was meeting an old friend who was in town, so after a couple of nice bourbons at the bar we decided to have dinner there as well so we could watch... More

Excellent attention to detail. My wife and I dined at Morton's for our second wedding anniversary. We greeted courteously and to our surprise, our menu's were personalized, "Happy Anniversary." The sea bass and salmon were good and the photos on the spot added a very romantic touch to the evening.

I have been to Wa DC a dozen times and tried Morton's several years ago...I didn't remember it being SO GOOD! I've tried a lot of the great steakhouses in this town-this is the best so far. The decor is very polished upscale yet comfortable and we had a nice quiet table with lots of room the relax. For starters... More

Been to lots of Morton's steak houses and haven't had a bad meal in any. The Georgetown location is very nice, Micky, a former bartender there always kept us coming back. The chocolate dessert is awesome. You have to preorder when you get there. It takes 30 minutes to cook.

I had a dinner at Morton's with my husband on June 2013. We tried a lot of different steakhouses in the US and in Canada (in Boston, Philly, NYC, Montreal and so on), but this one is not so special. I mean, I had some king crab's legs and my husband ordered a sirloin steak, but, compared to the read... More
