We had been to another Morton's several years ago and my husband remembered how wonderful the steak was and picked this restaurant for his birthday dinner. The service staff was very attentive. The food was very good. The bill was a big surprise. It added up quickly.
We started with the tuna tower which both my husband and son liked much better than I did. My husband had the lobster bisque which was delicious. We also shared the spinach salad which was good. My husband and son each got the ribeye and I got the mixed grill which included a small filet, bacon wrapped scallops, and grilled shrimp. We shared creamed spinach and twice baked potatoes au gratin. We all really enjoyed our entrees. The sides were good. My 12 year old was able to order a hamburger and fries from the bar menu. The restaurant offered my husband a dessert of his choice since we were celebrating his birthday (a very nice gesture) . We shared a giant piece of chocolate cake which was good. Our bill came to $300 which was record setting for us. My biggest complaint was the cost of the raspberry martini that I ordered--$18.25 which included $3 for a chambord topper. The waitress had asked if I had a vodka preference which I did not. The first martini she brought out was slightly frozen and purple (I guess from the chambord). She acknowledged that it was different but the bartenders specialty. She followed up to see if I liked it and I said it it was ok but I didn't love it so she took it back and brought me a more traditional one. I didn't love this one either but did drink it. When the check arrived I saw the price and was very shocked. I thought about complaining but didn't want to ruin the experience. Overall we enjoyed the evening.
