Very disappointing - the food was way over priced, the portions were tiny and the service was phony. If we were wearing the right clothes/jewellery and had the "right look" we might have been treated differently. We looked forward to this night out for a while. Honestly, I am not a complainer and have never written a review before but I felt so strongly that this was probably one of the worst experiences, in all of the above categories that I had warn you. You can get just as good a steak pretty much anywhere. There is nothing special about their steak!!

This place has had it! We watched as steaks were cut out of the plastic bags they had been packaged in, just before they were cooked. Two porterhouses (at $50 each, just for the steak) were different sizes, neither plentiful. One was about 3/4 inch thick and obviously weighed considerably less than a pound. The other one was only about 1/2 thick, and weighed even less. They both tasted like supermarket steaks...a crime at this price! Mushrooms tasted like they had come out of a can, and an appitizer had to be sent back. Everything was subpar compared to what this place served just a few years ago. Stay away.

Food: Overpriced and pretty ordinary. A piece of meat on a plate with no regard to presentation - all yours for $50. Side dishes extra. Bland steak. Service: Was this amateur hour? Not only were the waiters interrupting us with constant loud TGI Friday's style "Is everything alright for you guys" faux-friendliness, they also interrupted each other - the wine waiter came and started getting us to taste the wine right in the middle of the other waiter taking our order. You go through a passage past the kitchen to get to the stairs to the restrooms - 5 waiters and kichen staff shoved their way past me as I tried to walk through. Hang on guys - who is the customer here? First time ever in NYC that I haven't left a tip. They just didn't deserve it.

The Porter House is to die for. I had the porter house and my girlfriend had the fillet mignon. Comparing the two, I found the porterhouse much more flavorful and slightly more tender. They were both done medium rare, which I recommend for any steak. The mash pototatoes were a perfect addition to the steak. Try them and they are big enough to share if you want to split them with someone. The two appetizers we tried were subpar - especially for the price. The Shrimp Alexander is very light on flavor, but the shrimp were very large and tender. The lobster bisque was very dissapointing. It came with only one piece of lobster in it and the taste just left something to be desired. The service at the hostess stand and coat check was oustanding. Very nice people. One oddity, however, was that we had a waitress. Most high-end steak houses only have waiters. Not a huge deal, but definitely strange. They bring a food cart out to your table so you can see what you want to order and the cart has a live and moving 4lb lobster on it. That was a first for me. The wine list is very extensive around 500 bottles, but I'm not a wine conniseur so I can't really comment on the quality of their offerings. I had a cheap bottle of McWilliams Reisling ($45) which I enjoyed. I know... white wine with steak, but it was a nice addition to the meal. All in all, I will definitely go back and hopefully soon.

I went here for the first time when my parents came to visit me in NYC. I was excited to try it out but was dissapointed!!! Our waitress was snotty and unconcerned. Throughout the whole meal she did not check on us once. I could not even get another drink the entire meal because she was no where to be found. They also gave me the wrong steak!! I realized after about 4 bites that I was eating a ribeye instead of the NY Strip, which I had ordered. I would have let her know that I was served the wrong meal, but once again, could not find the waitress. The steak was definetly cooked perfectly, and was very delicious........however, for all 4 of us to eat there and only get a steak and potato each....it cost $285 dollars. When you drop $300 on a meal you should get the right food and at least decent service. The meal was in no way worth the price it cost. I wanted to show my parents a good time in NYC and was extremely dissapointed. =*(

My first experience with a Morton's was in Hartford, CT about 6 years ago with my Dad. I expected the world. While the steak was very good, I had had steaks just about as good at home for so much less $. Then 6 months ago, a friend of mine took me to the NYC Morton's with another friend to celebrate the birth of my baby girls. This time the steak was tremendous - I had the ribeye. Maybe it was a good day in NYC, or a bad day in Hartford, but it seemed like night and day. Of course back in the Hartford days, I had steak every week at home, so maybe this experience was so good because I had not tasted it in a while. Whatever the case, it was tremendous - very flavorful, crispy but NOT charred black on the outside, very juicy on the inside (I like mine medium). We had numerous dirty martini's, bottles of red wine, and shared a lobster tail and shrimp cocktail - all were great. I think we had the hashbrowns for a side and some creamed spinish which were good, but the real story was the steak - best I ever had. I had no complaints about the staff.
