This Morton's location is on the second floor of an office building and offers a very nice outdoor terrace overlooking L Street, so when the weather allows, outdoor dining here can be very pleasant. That feature is the highlight of dining here. Aside from that, most things are more or less consistent with what you would expect from a prime steakhouse. Service was prompt and professional and food offerings, allowing for personal preference, were in line with expectations.
Steak was prepared as ordered, but as a matter of personal preference, I like the steak to be broiled with butter and very little seasoning. Morton's serves their steaks with a warm, thin au jus that, for me, just doesn't have the same sizzle and richness. While the steak was a good cut and was otherwise properly cooked, it just seemed like a dull hunk of meat. But if au jus, rather than butter is your preference, you might like the steaks here more than I do.
I might have rated them "very good" instead of "average," but for the fact that, at the end of the meal, they encouraged me to sign up for Landry's frequent diner club. This is something that happens sometimes at restaurants in the Landry's group, and I just don't like it. That sort of solicitation is just something that doesn't belong in a good restaurant. It might be good for business in general, but not for my business.
