THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Step into this restaurant and step onto the set of a Rat Pack movie. The gentlemen's club décor, Frank Sinatra soundtrack and carts loaded with slabs of aged, raw beef, whole fish and lobsters give the place a swell, haute-retro ambience. If you feel you were born a decade too late or just want the grand steakhouse experience, by all means make a reservation. But be warned, there are much cheaper ways to enjoy a good steak. If you do succumb, go for broke and start with the broiled sea scallops and have your filet mignon with a béarnaise sauce and a side of mashed potatoes. Morton's ultra-creamy spuds are worth the cholesterol spike. Wild mushrooms to share are another nice touch. Finish with the chocolate soufflé of chocolate, raspberry, Grand Marnier and lemon.

Memorable- but not for food or service!

Let's set the picture: birthday celebration, wanting to splurge...I wear a fabulous dress and my husband, his favorite sportcoat. Off we go to an evening out on the Southbank. When we arrive, precisely in time for our reservation, our table was not ready (yet the restaurant only 1/3 full), the wine was served awkwardly and not properly, including leaving foil jagged and hanging over the mouth during pour, splattering a fair bit on the tablecloth. Our meal was terrible: meat marinated far too long so it was broken down and mushy, the 'grilled' asparagus was really more like parboiled with slightly browned tips, far crunchier and more raw than the explained 'al dente' with disgusting, cold balsamic sauce. The potatoes were prepared in a manner akin to hash at the local all night diner. Did I mention the finale, when requesting our car from the 'complimentary valet', we could not figure out why it took so long until the valet returned on foot, sweating, saying, in truth, he does not know how to drive a stick and had stalled our car! We had quite a memorable evening, just for all the wrong reasons!
