One of my favorite places to eat, because they consistently serve great food and the service is excellent. I have been to several Morton's Restaurants around the country and have never been disappointed. The steaks are tender and juicy and cooked to perfection; the side dishes are always tasty and plentiful.Being originally from Maryland, I'm generally hesitant to order a... More

This Chicago based restaurant has had an excellent reputation for serving gourmet steaks for many years. My first dining experience with Morton's just happened to be in Chicago in the early 70s.

Very very good food... but you are going to pay an arm and a leg. I hate how the sides are sold separately. Upscale and classy, make sure to wear a button up shirt. Dress code should be followed.

The best steak I've ever tasted. The atmosphere and service are also excellent. It's a little expensive, but quality has its price.

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
