I've had several enjoyable experiences at the Mortons location in the galleria. Unfortunately, we could not get a Valentine's Day reservation at that location and decided to give the dowtown location a try. We started by ordering a bottle of wine (which was the best part of the dinner). As our waiter, who will remain nameless because unlike him I will exercise class, approached our table with the dinner cart, my fiance presented him with a promotional coupon ($99 for two, which is posted on the website). I thought we were being respectful of his time but I can not put into words the look of disgust he gave us. We were immediately asked "what do you want" before our bottle even arrived at the table. Since we did not yet decide on our entrees at this point, we both ordered salads. Our salad is immediately RUSHED out before we even received our bottle of wine. Our waiter comes back, and again, asks us if we are ready to order. My fiance politely asked him not to rush us and he eventually got the picture. As I attempted to enjoy my wine, I witnessed my waiter confront another waiter over a table. Moments later we ordered and requested our filets medium rare and medium, respectively. We were given 2 medium well steaks. At this point, I was so digusted with the way we were treated that I did not want to waste my time speaking to the manager. Morton's has a strong commitment to excellence and prides itself on service. Unfortunately, my waiter did not feel the same way. I will continue to dine at galleria location and will never return to this location again.

Pros: This is not the only Morton's Houston location

Cons: rude waiter, steaks overcooked (probably waiter's revenge for using coupon)

The steak here is really good. I had the fielt mignon and tried the bone-in ribeye (which tasted much better than my filet) and the porterhouse, which was also really good. The creamed spinach side was good, and the grilled asparagus is something I recommend. The bread here is incredible and I caution against eating too much of it because it can really fill you up. Lobster bisque was very mediocre to my dissapointment. Steak gets cold much faster than it should. Overall, a good restaurant, but doesn't really compare well with the other steak restaurants in Houston. I'll return with the corporate card, but probably not my personal.

While staying at the Four Season's downtown, Morton's was highly recommended by the staff and I have heard the name and how fabulous the steak was for years and had never tried it, so decided to take the suggestion. We made reservations and were seated promptly when we arrived. All good. Then, we proceeded to wait and wait and wait until we finally asked who our server was. The person we asked turned out be our server and quickly took our drink orders. Then, we did not see him for a good 10 minutes with our drinks. We were not ready to order so he told us he'd be 'right back'. Well, another 10 minutes later he came back and took our order at which time he asked me if I knew what 'medium rare' meant and compared it to 'medium'. Knowing very well the difference between the two, I insisted that i did, indeed, want the medium rare filet. I am assuming the server took it upon himself to order my steak 'medium' thinking i obviously didn't understand the difference. I chose not to return the steak since we had already been there an hour and i didn't want to wait another hour and ate it. We had difficulty getting water refilled, another glass of wine, etc. and chose to order our dessert to go and get the check. I asked for my steak to be wrapped up for my dog. He returned relatively promptly with the check and two to-go bags which we assumed were the dessert and my leftover steak. We handed him the card and he left, supposedly to close out our bill. 10 or 15 minutes later, not even having SEEN the waiter, we flagged a manager and told him how long we had waited and how upset we were. He got our check back relatively quickly but made no other attempts to appease us other than say 'sorry'. Then, later when we opened the bags, one was the dessert we ordered and the other was another dessert (rather than the steak). So, someone else looking forward to their dessert that evening was staring at my overcooked steak scraps. We will NEVER go to Morton's again.

Hubby and I went for Valentine's Day dinner, I had filet mignon and he had prime rib. We absolutely loved it!! Our server was very very nice, and recommended good wine.... when you go, make sure you order just one side order and share it, that was a recommendation of our server and it was very wise... We went for the mashed potatoes... Also make sure you order your dessert just as you order dinner, as it takes about an hour for some of their desserts to be ready... We ordered the Godiva Chocolate Cake and it was absolutely lush!!! Will recommend to anyone!

Pros: Steaks were delicious, good service.

Cons: Crowded and not very romantic...

I consider myself a bit of a steakhouse afficianado, and Morton's is about as good as it gets. I would only put The Summit in Lake Tahoe and Prime in Las Vegas ahead of Morton's, and not by much. The staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Every selection on the menu appears wonderful, but I settled on the porterhouse. It was amazing. Also, my tuna tartare appetizer was the best tuna tartare I have ever had. Dessert was also excellent. I would recommend Morton's to anyone at any time.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Expensive, but surely worth it on the right occasion

This is my 2nd visit (after a 1yr lapse) and the quality still stands. This franchise has great steak and service, in midwest style. Frank Sinatra croons unobstrusively in the background giving a hip, Chicago feel. I had the 9oz fillet cooked perfectly: med-well that was still juicy, tender, tasty! A side of the spinach salad, Lyonnaise potatoes and glass of petite shirah complimented nicely. I had to try the chocolate mousse velvet cake laced with rum - managed less than half of it - definitely something to share! Parking is and ample; the location is across the Galleria. Shop and eat or eat then shop! What more can you ask for?

I took my boyfriend here for dinner for his birthday. Everything on the menu is practically delicious.. especially that macaroni! The portions are very big. The service was great, if only our server could of been more informative about the menu. For the 2 of us was around $240.00 after gratuity. Pretty expensive but I'd say it was money well spent.

my husband and i dined at morton's for our anniversary and were blown away by the food and service. the steaks were delicious and our server, professional. for my app. i ordered the crabcake, which was so good, i almost changed my order to the crabcake entree, but we were at a steakhouse, so i refrained. my husband had the prime rib which he said practically melted in his mouth. i had the filet mignon which was equally as delicious. the sides were wonderful and our dessert was the BEST chocolate cake i have ever had. it had a hot fudge center and ice cream on the side, what more can any girl ask for in a dessert. my only complaint was the fact that my husband and i overheard the maitre'd speak very unprofessionally to a server. other than that our evening was FLAWLESS!!! we will be back soon.

The reviews are accurate. The ambience was warm and relaxed and the service impeccable. At many other restaurants, if the ambience and service excel the food suffers , but not at Morton's. It offers the freshest and most flavorful menu one could hope to expect. Nice wine selection as well. Dress nicely, take someone who appreciates fine dining and pre-order the lemon souffle for dessert!

After being invited to Morton's for our first time, my wife and I will be back more often. It was not too crowded with a cofortable atmosphere. I had my reserves about a steak none in a broiler, but was blown away by the taste. I guess you don't have 60 some odd location's worldwide for no reason. Service was amazing, our need's constantly anticipated.

I have yet to find somewhere else with the constant desire to please as Morton's. We have dined several times and with the exception of the lobster, everything is better than imaginable. My wife dislikes seafood and now all she talks about is the bacon wrapped scallops. They are to die for. Everyone should enjoy Morton's atleast once.

Pros: not too crowded, valet parking, reservations on time

My husband and I went to Morton's for our 15th anniversary. I spent weeks carefully selecting the restaraunt. We set an early reservation for a booth. The place was packed when we got there with bluejean clad diners from a WalMart convention. (Not Morton's fault, but it set the tone.) Then to our surprise, we found out that their steaks are not grilled, but rather broiled in an oven. My husband tried the filet mignon, but was very disappointed. The portions were huge, especially the prime rib. The sides were just as large, but the spinach was, well, odd. The tomato salad was very good. I ordered the Godiva chocolate dessert when we finished dinner, but was told I should have ordered it at the beginning. Our waiter had failed to tell us that. The hype was misleading. I won't be back.

My only experience at this restaurant was supposed to be a birthday celebration for me and my date. However, it turned out to be an experience that has kept me from ever returning. We asked for non-smoking seats. Shortly after we were seated next to a divider with plants in it a roup of five men lit up cigars. They were less than six feet from our table. The steak was broiled and not grilled. I much prefer grilled steak.

Simply the best steak in town. Forget about Pappas and Ruth Chris. Excellent steaks. One of the few places that do not overcook a rare steak.
Excellent crabcakes.
