My husband and I celebrated our 19th anniversary with a visit to Morton's in San Diego. Our waitress, Kandi, was very helpful in explaining the menu details, and we definitely sampled quite a bit. We're not aficionados of steakhouses, but Morton's was worth the visit. We started with celebratory cocktails (the red velvet was lovely) and the stuffed shrimp appetizer. It's a good thing we ordered only one and split it because there were four very large shrimp, perfectly cooked and with a delightful crab stuffing. My husband's ribeye was cooked and seasoned exactly the way he likes it (and so large that it was dinner at home two nights later). I had the mixed grill with bacon-wrapped scallops (best scallops since the much-missed California Cuisine) and could have stopped there, but the petite filet mignon was very nice, if under-seasoned. The side dishes were lovely, but there could have been more than five asparagus stalks for the price. We were told the Lyonnaise potatoes had bacon, but we detected none -- but the potatoes were delicious, so no complaints there. Dessert was included at no charge since it was our anniversary. I'm glad we didn't pay for the souffle -- it was the only disappointment of the evening. I would definitely not order that again -- it barely tasted of chocolate, was a bit chalky and was more lumpy, almost liquid pudding than souffle. Morton's was an interesting and enjoyable experience, but given the extremely high cost, it's not something we'd be likely to repeat anytime soon. But I'd recommend it for a special occasion.
