We are fortunate to have dined at Mortons in 6 or 7 different locations. Thought this was the worst. Never seemed quite up to par. Service food atmosphere were all below Mortons standards.

My birthday at Morton's was amazing. The new seafood platter is very good. My friends and I shared the 22 ounce juice Mortons's steak. Easy location to get to, valet parking, great team, and beautiful atmosphere.
