My wife and I vacation each year in San Diego. However, this was our first visit to Morton's. We went to celebrate our anniversary and were immediately impressed by the personalized menus with our names on them. We kept them as souveniers. Ever member of the staff that interacted with us was very attentive, knowledgeable and accomodating. We split the... More

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

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
