“not what it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

it's gotten too expensive for what it delivers. 3 mains, 3 sides, 1 espresso, 1 raspberry, 2 bottles of water puts you back over 500 sgd.

we ordered the steaks to be done 'medium' and they came overcooked and dry.

the service was poor. the waiter was too chatty and talked about things he knew embarrassingly little of.

so yeah, the steak gets overcooked, the service is bad, the value for money is terrible, the atmosphere is primarily loud. apart from all that it is not a bad place.

“Perfection at a price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Mortons is Mortons. It is the same in Singapore as it is in Chicago and NY. Good, massive yet expensive steaks served as you like it.

Pro's
1. Steaks, how you want when you want. They are genuinely the best steaks in Singapore
2. Ambiance - for a brief moment you can believe that you are not actually in Singapore but a real US steak / grill house.

Cons:
1. Although the hotel is inside the Mandarin Oriental it is not an MO restaurant. Consequently the staff attitude and service differs accordingly.
2. $90 ++ for a filet. Go figure BUT meat is expensive in Singapore and this is the best place for it. Ultimately if you are going to Mortons you know it is going to cost you close to 400 SGD for two with wine.
3. Because of the price your fellow diners are either brokers, bankers or birthday celebrations. Again go figure on the ambiance.

“If you miss an American Steak House...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

As an American living in Singapore, I find myself periodically longing for a little taste of home... and Morton's is a great place. Inside the popular Mandarin Oriental hotel (which is attached to Marina Square Mall), Mortons is a popular ex-pat hang out. There is the restaurant (be prepared for a 25% premium on the prices vs. the states) as well as the bar (in the center of the hotel). I recommend the bar - as they serve free prime rib sandwiches during happy hour. Which you may need, because the drink prices are STEEP ($15 SGD - $30 SGD per drink that's not tap water).

“The finest stake in town..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

If you are planning to dine in style and enjoy the pampering service, come to Morton's in Mandarin Oriental and indulge the delicious stake. If you are waiting for your dining table to be ready, you may opt to have a drink in the bar and obtain some good discount for it.

The minute you are seated, you will be served with a fresh baked loaf along with butter. Your designated waitress will be at your table to display the raw meats that are recommended for the night. All type of sizes and origins, and it taste super awesome.I would recommend for starters to take the Jumbo Prawn Platter (if i get the name right). The prawns are hugeee and extremely delicious. Do not over order your meals as the portion may be looking small however it makes you tummy tight by the first half.

We enjoyed the ambiance, the classy dining, the rose wine, the good old steak and importantly the service. I could never ask for more.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Eaten here on a number of occasions to mixed reviews. Have had some reasonable meals but also some awful ones, including a very unpleasant rib eye steak that was hopelessly cooked. Not worth the money in my opinion, the steak is better at Dolce Vita in the same Hotel.
