Year after year and visit after visit they do not disappoint, the service, the selections, the traditional decor. This years summer menu is a great addition, the Blue cheese bone in fillet (make sure to order the blue cheese on the side) is awesome. The proscuitto wrapped halibut was fresh and flavor full. Great job Morton's San Diego.

We often eat at Morton's locations throughout the US. The "summer special" menu drew us which offers a prix fix menu at a reasonable price. The appetizer/soup was great, but the fillet was over seasoned and mealy texture. Deserts were fine but check came at the same time suggesting time to leave and turn the table another time. Clientele wore... More

I had half a dozen oysters on the shell, perfectly served, with a very nice glass of white Kim Crawford wine. Then a fantastic smooth short rib and sea scallops /very /very good :-) Recommendable.

OK, let me be up front here. I've eaten steak all over the world and Mortons is not cheap, so if you're on a budget this restaurant will not be for you. But if you are looking for 'memorable' restaurant experiences, if you're hoping to have a meal that would leave you saying "that's one of the best steaks I... More

The Morton's downtown San Diego is a great spot that locals love! We stop by happy hour at least once a week, its a fun spot to take my clients. They have Five Star service and five star food especially at the Bar. ( ask for the bartender Shawn she's great ) The restaurant is located in the Harbor club... More

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.
