Morton´s San Diego used to be my favorite steak house. In fact, I had previously rated this place very highly. Unfortunately, it´s not what it used to be. Where should I start? it took longer than usual to be waited on; my champagne was tepid, the service lacked efficiency; the waiters were a bit forgetful; the food quality was not... More

Our family enjoyed an excellent dinner here last night. We had just arrived on the train from LA and wanted a steak. This was the perfect choice. They say us outside at a lovely table. The views of the bay are beautiful. Service was amazing. Ben, our waiter, was attentive, thoughtful, efficient and friendly. He gave us some tips in... More

We were taken here by our pedicab driver. I wish I had known this was more on the "nicer" side as I would not have worn shorts and t-shirt (don't worry; others did too). The place is quite pricey, but the food was really good. To be honest, this is more like a place to take a date or spouse... More

I liked the outlet in Palm Desert. but this one fell short. The first impression was very bad. The place was bedlam, and there was no quiet alcove to get away from it I came for the two pound lobster special. But it was far from the best lobster I have had. In addition it had not been prepared adequately... More

Morton's is one of the top steakhouses in the country and well deserves the awards they have earned. Elegant dining with a very professional and attentive staff. I had the Rib Eye steak while my wife had a combo beef/shrimp/scallops dish. Both were excellent and highly recommended. Entrees are in $50 range. Superb wine list with all price ranges.

My husband and I went to Morton's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is one of our favorite restaurants for anniversaries. I ordered my favorite, filet mignon. I ordered it medium and when it came it was well done. The manager was great & took it back. She brought me a new filet that was just perfect! Everyone makes mistakes... More
