I went to this place on a tuesday nite. good crowd, wonderful smells, food was tasty, had the rib eye- perfectly cooked & right portions, dessert was this 1million cal chocolate cake-especially yummy. Only critisism here was the service, she must have been new, cause she was forgetful and looked lost. Would come again when they finish training.

Ordered the porterhouse for two, and it was cut table side and then served up by the maitre 'd. No doubt, it was the best strip that I've ever had, bar none, hands down. The filet was way off though, and I'm not really sure how that works. I guess the cow must of had a strange constitution or something. We ordered it Medium Rare, and it was a little over cooked on the outside, but the middle was perfect. The cream spinach was wonderful, almost superb. The special Godiva chocolate cake, although I'm not a big fan of the molten cake, was to die for. Not for bittersweet lovers. Way expensive, just like the rest of these joints, but well worth it.

I always tell people, if you want to sure that you will consistently get a very good steak and be treated as if you're their best customer, go to Morton's. I always take clients there because I know they'll never be disappointed. It's a quieter atmosphere where you can hear the people you're with. If you don't like Frank Sinatra, don't bother.

My husband and I just ate at Morton's this past weekend. I had eaten there once before (husband several times) and we had a good experience so we decided to try it again and are so glad we did. I'm one of those types that can't eat meat unless is is cooked thorougly--I'm talking not a bit of pink. I think this makes me snobbier when choosing steakhouses because some places will cook well-done and it is charred like a hockey puck (blechh!) and some places will cook it properly, without burning it to death...Morton's is one of those places. I have to admit that when they first brought me my steak, it was still pink and had to have it sent back. However, my husband and I were super impressed because when they brought my steak back out, they also took our sides away (creamed spinach and hash browns--both delish!) and repaced them with fresh ones. Apparently, this is the policy at Mortons if your entree has to be sent back to the kitchen. We have never experienced service like that and have eaten in all the "best" steakhouses in the City and surrounding area. Service was great. Price is a little on the high-end but the service and taste make up for it. One bit of advice--they feature "made to order" desserts--one being the Godiva chocolate cake and, I believe, apple pie. These take about 30 minutes to make so if you are interested, inquire about the made to order desserts when you are ordering and place your order so you don't have to sit for a long time waiting.

Although not cheap, this steakhouse is hands down the best "chain" around. The steak was magnificent and the sides were super-filing. Atmosphere was very classy and the waitstaff was superb. Definitely a great place to take a client out (if you really want to impress them). My only complaint is that there is only one in Manhattan. :)

Dinner was okay, though pricey (the one time I'd gone the food itself was very disappointing). But the reason I'll never go back is that they display food offerings on a sidebar, and one of them was a squirming lobster, which gradually reduced its movements. I asked waiter about it, and he said the chain insists on it, and one lies there and dehydrates and dies every night in full view of the customers! Who needs this?

I was invited to join a friend who had a coupon for a surf and turf special for two at Mortons. I had heard much about this restaurant so I was eager to try it. We arrived at about 6:30 and got a little table in the corner. I was grateful for that since most of the other tables for two were the ones that are lined up against the wall and you feel like you are eating with strangers. Our table gave us some privacy. Our waiter and his assistant were wonderful. They were attentive and friendly and helped make this a nice experience. We were offered either the Morton's salad or Caesar salad and we each chose one. They were fine but salad is pretty much salad and there was nothing that made either of them outstanding. Our next course consisted of a choice of three colossal shrimp in a sauce or a lump meat crabcake. We each chose one and sampled each others' choice. They were both very, very nice and we enjoyed them. Next came their petite filet mignons. These were excellent except that, as always, restaurants have different interpetations of rare, medium rare and medium, so I had to send back my raw meat. We were also entitled to one vegetable each and we ordered brocolli and sauted mushrooms. Both were very good. The best part of the meal was the choice of desserts: we had one cheesecake and one godiva dessert which is essentially a chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream on the side. These were excellent. I did peruse the regular menu to discern prices. I thought they were quite high, with most steaks being in the $36 and higher category and everything else being ala carte. Our seasonal special was $80. for two, but of course with wine, our check was much higher. The atmosphere was pleasant enough, appearing as a business-type restaurant. At times it was quite noisy, but thankfully it emptied out in our vicinity and it was better. All in all, it was a nice dinner but I would have expected more for the dollar considering their well-known name.
