Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: The Morton's chain is all about quality steaks, salads and sides with a couple of seafood items thrown in. The originator of the show-and-tell tableside menu, Morton's lays it on thick. But it's a good thick, and it's a fine place for good food and a good time in a clubby atmosphere. After a liquid cocktail, dive into a shrimp or jumbo (a word frequently appearing on the menu) lump crab meat cocktail to start. Chopped salad is a meal in its own. For meat and potato fans, we favor the bone-in rib-eye or the strip steak au poivre, and the Lyonnaise potatoes. The sides are à la carte, and large enough to share.  If there's room, there's nothing like a lush and rich piece of cheesecake or Morton's hot chocolate cake to wind up a steakhouse dinner.

Waste your $$$$ on Table Games
by cosmickid on Wed Apr 08, 2009 12:15 pm
 
Don't waste your money. Feeling flush after a win, 3 friends and I went to Morton's to celebrate. Given, it was late (10pm) on a Saturday, and I can understand that servers get tired, but the service was determinedly disinterested, and the food was mediocre, even for 1/4 the price.

All 4 of us ordered steaks, salads, and sides, plus 2 bottles of wine. All-in the tab came to over $600 + (a generous) 10% tip. My bone-in ribeye (~$60) had the mealy texture of meat that has been chemically tenderized, and none of the flavor of dry-aged beef. The Caesar salad that preceded it (~$12) had the size and flavor of a side Caesar at Applebee's, Lyonnaise potatoes (~$12) tasted as if they'd been microwaved more than once, and Creamed Spinach (~$12) was bland and greasy.

As disappointed as I was in the food, however, nothing prepared me for the complete disinterest of our waiter, who cleared my uneaten Caesar without a word, and disappeared rapidly with my (also uneaten) ribeye, despite the subtle hint that "I didn't really care for it". None of the party finished more than 1/4 of their steak and the sides were virtually untouched.

No compensation was offered, nor was any indication given that returning both a salad and whole steak was anything other than ordinary.

Stay away from Morton's and spend your money at the tables. You'll get better service and you may actually come out ahead.
