Still a great steak, not over-seasoned like many...

As they are fond of saying, the menu as Morton's has been the same for 35 years (or longer?). I would say the service, staff knowledge, and food quality is just as reliable. My steak (Porterhouse) was excellent as was the wine selection. The only reason I did not give it a 5 rating was the side... read more

The restaurant is really nice with excellent Bar, formal saloon and terrace with Connecticut Av view. I always visit Morton's around the States and Mexico for my Burger at the Bar. That's what I like. And the Burgers are fantastic. In this place you can have a great time with excellent and professional service.

Zac and his team were incredible. For a group of 16, we were all served with utmost attention. Food was prepared to perfection, and the Soufflé to end the meal was the best you will find any where. Love this place!!!!

Morton's is always a good choice for happy hour, business meetings and even a romantic dinner. I love their food and admire their service. On this particular occasion, I went for happy hour and light bites with friends. I was impressed with their selection of small plates. You can also smoke in the heated deck. Highly recommended and love the... More

The good first: my NY strip steak was fantastic. Tender and flavorful. The restaurant has a quiet, luxury atmosphere. Now the bad: the price is just not worth it. This is a business expense account restaurant, so a meal with wine can easily run $150 - $200 per person. And worse in my opinion is that the wait staff do... More

Morton's continues to be the best steakhouse in the country in spite of the fact that it is now part of a restaurant chain that includes Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. It is now left to the staff to make the guests feel special and they certainly continue to do a good job at that. Morton's is known for its clubby... More

Visited after having a very positive experience at the Morton's in Boston. Have to say that this was disappointing in comparison. The restaurant, though similar decor as the one in Boston, was a very open space and had a very cold feeling. This may have been because it was very empty when we attending, perhaps it would be different if... More

Went to Morton's and hosted a business mixer in the bar area with drinks and lots of shared appetizers for a group of between 6-8. We arrived early (5:20 or so), and waiters were good about asking of we wanted drinks initially. As others arrived there was some delay in getting first drinks and a few mix ups in our... More

A pretty average experience, had to wait for the meet and great, coat lady couldn't raise a smile, business group, food slapped down on the table as pre- ordered starter, steak ordered which was good and well cooked. Table service lacked co-ordination, style and warmth. Overall nothing special. As many have said before their are many better places to choose.... More

I visit restaurants of this chain wherever I can find one, and I was never disappointed. This restaurant in DC (Connecticut Ave.) looks very nice and cozy, decorated with lots of poinsetta flowers which I love. The rib eye steak (blackened) was cooked to perfection and was tender and wet. Will continue to visit this chain with any opportunity.
