My first time at this Mortons and the food and service were superb. Our waiter was friendly fun and engaging. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were wonderful. Its expensive, but well worth it.

Food quality up to their standards. However they had more customers than they could handle. So that made waiting time longer. However our steaks were great and the chocolate desert was fabulous

This restaurant will continue to stand through the test of time. Many come to enjoy the tender steaks offered by Morton's. I know it will continue to be our favorite to enjoy at every location.
