The service at this restaurant was really bad. They served our food and then forgot about us. Never even asked us if our steaks were done as ordered. We had to get up from the table to get water refilled. And to top it off, they served us a souffle that was not cooked! Fortunately we did not eat it.... More

Was taken to Morton's for a business dinner. You pick the main and then choose family served sides for the table. I am vegetarian and chose to just have sides although the server did offer a vegetarian option. Sides were excellent, especially the grilled asparagus. My dining companion had a steak, said it was juicy and flavorful. The other two... More

I usually eat in the bar area, and catch the sports in TV. One of the best Rib Eyes around and reasonable wines by the glass.

We did the Happy hour at the bar. The cabernet was good and a generous pour for $7. The home made potato chips was a very large portion and worth going there just for that. The parm-truffle fries werre also delicious. We all had slider cheeseburgers that were tasty, but the rolls were a bit stale tasting. But...loved those potato... More

The meat was really excellent, but the service was extremely slow. Twenty minutes to wait because of lack of waiters, then an hour for the food. Too much at 9PM.

Well coordinated, polished and extremely attentive service. Loved the roomy booth seating. As for the food, we loved everything: large tasty salads (bib lettuce with walnuts, pears and blue cheese; and Morton's own with blue cheese and anchovies); a great filet mignon and the tenderest, juiciest pork chop. We were too full to have desert, we need to come another... More

When you want to spend $ 300.00 on date night and have one hell of a steak and a drink go here. Its not for every day, but once a month is great.

This is our go-to place for family dinners. The food is always amazing, meat cooked perfectly, service is stellar and it's cozy and comfortable, not pretentious.
