Like every steakhouse in Denver, Morton's is vastly overpriced and pretentious,a poor value for the cost. And I don't need them to show me what a steak, potato, or a tomato looks like. The wine is terribly overpriced: example: $10 for a 6

I've been to all the top notch steak houses in Denver and I find myself continuing to want to come back to this Morton's. From the valet, wait staff, management staff, wine manager, and waiters I always get excellent service. I've probably been here at least 25 times without a bad experience.

Some of the other steak houses in the area might have one thing they do better than Morton's, but overall this place is the best top to bottom.

Be clear when you order the temperature of the steak as generally they may be more pink than you get at low-rent places. If you like things a little more done, have them butterfly anything thick.

I personally go for the french onion soup, single cut filet, grilled asparagus, and baked potatoes most nights. For dessert, I enjoy the key lime pie.

Pros: Steaks, Service and Staff Are Great

Cons: Wine a touch high on markups, common in Denver

My husband and I celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Morton's. Every time we visit Morton's we can count on excellent food as well as excellent service. We always feel special and comfortable while enjoying a terrific meal. Our dinners were prepared just as ordered and served with great satisfaction. Your staff is very considerate and thoughtful and it is always a treat to visit your restaurant. Thanks for another memorable evening.

I was at Mortons for businees meeting with about 20 people. I ordered their "top" filet. The interior of the steak had portions which were well-done, portions medium and the center was raw. I'm a big eater but coulldn't finish the steak. Others at my table also found the center of their filets raw. Might have a been a bad night for the kitchen. Desert was berries scattered on a plate with a scoop of whip cream.

Morton's use to be the place to get great steak, the only place. Not so much anymore, it's still good, but certainly not the best.

We were in to the Denver location recently and had an average meal. The server was new and didn't know the menu all that well, but was very friendly and attentive. She didn't know much about the wine list which was rather disappointing.

The steaks were slightly over cooked, but still great cuts of beef. The Caesar salad was way over dressed, more like soup. The jumbo lump crab cakes were perfect, crisp on the outside, nicely done. The hot chocolate cake is truly legendary and worth a trip back alone.

With the price of quality aged beef today, it's a sin to not have the steak at the proper temperature. A place like Morton's knows better or at least use to.

Pros: Great desserts and sides

Cons: A little spendy, needs an interior make over, resting on laurels

.

Excellent appetizers and sides, but a below average steak and a cramped atmosphere.
The restaurant is a packed room with only a few feet between tables. It's loud, and for an upscale steak restaurant, you'd expect more room.
We ordered the Lobster bisque and crab cakes for appetizers which were terrific. The sides of au gratin potatoes and spinach were also very good.
Unfortunately our filet mignon and new york strip steaks were so-so at best. Questionable cuts and overcooking medium rare to medium well (after a waiter's advice I might add) made the experience worse. For what the steaks cost, they were comparable to a low-end family steakhouse/buffet.
Capital Grille, Del Frisco's, Ruth's Chris, Brooks, Sullivan's, or the oft forgotten Randolph's are all better options. For the price you're paying at Morton's, Outback is a better value and cooks a much better steak, too!

Pros: Sides, Appetizers

Cons: Cramped, Overcooking, Price

.

(Alright an $8 Dollar potato is expensive, but they will overfill it with bacon, sour cream and butter till your hearts content).
The Drinks were strong and good. Our Appetizers of crab cakes and bisque were very flavorfull 9/10. The salads were Crisp and good, as was my French Onion Soup.
3 of us had steak, t-bone superb, NY strip very good, Filet Excellent. All cooked as asked and with way above average flavor.
For Desert the cheescake is Good, not cheescake factory good, but good. Try anything chocolate and you will not be dissapointed.
The Wait staff and management were very attentive and genuine in their service. Though slightly cramped it was a great place and my new "Home Base" in Denver for great steaks. Better than Gallaghers, Blows The Palm Away, and more Flavor than the Chop House. Try it, it is a good Place to Eat.

Pros: Food, Waitstaff, Drinks

Denver historically has been the "Wild West," indeed the reputation still sticks with this place. The brothel like environment could be comparable to the services received from Mattie Silks house of mirrors, because of the inauspicious like waiters who only pay attention to you if you wave a $100.00 bill in front of them. The food could also be compared to the charred remains of some kind of animal, suitable for consumption if you were starving to death. Remember, to overcook meat and call it a delicacy is not a good restaurant make. To charge 7.00 dollars for a potato and to leave clients waiting is not what I call a pleasurable dining experience.

Recently, my wife graduated from College and I decided to take her out to celebrate. We were seated promptly and serviced like we were the only patrons there, even though the place was packed. Our glasses were never empty and we wanted for nothing. The server was attentive and friendly. The food, (Filet's) was served hot, tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. The ambience was western style and comfortable. This is my STEAK HOUSE of choice from now on.

From the minute we planned our company dinner, every aspect was not only anticipated but executed to the very finest detail. From the valet staff, to the hostess, to the waitstaff and management team everything was perfect! And not to mention, they of course have the best steak anywhere!

We were sat at a table for 2. The tables on both sides literally had no room between them to walk through. We may as well have sat with these folks and introduced ourselves! I had both tables watching me eat as they were already done with their dinners. The food was way overpriced and mediocre at best. People raved about the porterhouse and that's why we went. It was nothing to write home about but I'm writing it here. I would not go back. I'd rather buy a $10 steak at Safeway and out it on my George!

I just recently hosted a surprise birthday party for my wife's 40th birthday at Morton's downtown. It was by far the best dinner ever -- we are still receiving rave reviews!! The private room is beautiful making the ambiance perfect. The food was absolutely delicious and the service top-notch. The manager was very gracious in helping us pull off the surprise and I would highly recommend Morton's to anyone looking to have a party or just get a great steak!

Morton's is an overwhelming and unforgettable dining experience. From the tuxedo seating your guests to the phenomenal wine selection to the succulent entree selections and ridiculously large portions, Morton's is not an experience to be passed up! I go there both for special occasions and also when I just want to be pampered and enjoy the best meat that money can buy!

The steak here is very good, but Morton's reputation and their prices raise expectations to a level that isn't fulfilled. I also think that the restaurant puts too much emphasis on everything being BIG. For instance, don't order the asparagus, as they serve the biggest, fattest (and thus the chewiest and most fibrous) stalks you've ever seen. On my visit, the service was spotty, and my wife and I left unimpressed by anything but our big pieces of meat, which were good, if not absolutely top-notch.

Mortons Tech Center is wonderful. Typical Mortons quality and service in a quite and pleasant environment. Been there a dozen times now and each visit a very good dining expierence. Pass on Brooks dispite what the Editors say, they are wrong. Brooks disapointed every time and we tried it 4 times.

If you like charred steak, noisy atmospere, the word "no" from the staff, and chairs as comfortable as someone punching you in the kidneys, go to Morton's.

We started out with drinks. A 5oz margarita will cost you 9$ and a comment from the bartender how great his margaritas are. Then you watch him pours it from a mix.

The steaks were okay, although it didn't seem to matter what cut or thickness they were, they were all charred on the outside (to include med/rare steaks).

The chairs are the most uncomfortable things on the planet. I've sat on stairs that were more comfortable.

We asked for a booth: "no"
We asked for prime rib: "no"
We asked for German wine "no"
We gave up after the third no.

Go to Briarwood. Morton's is a total waste of $200.

Denver has many fine steak house and for the money, Morton's doesn't make my top 8. It's as or more expensive than most and the steaks are the only thing equal with it's peers. If you compare them to say, Brooks Steak House, you will pay 30 % more. The sides are where Morton's fall short. The asparagus is large and tough and you get 6 pieces compared to 25 to 30 small tender pieces say at Brook's or Ruth Chris. Making a great steak is not the hard part, it's all that goes with it. $130 when we didn't even have a drink is way out of line. Good luck, because you'll never see my money again.

Morton's is by far my favorite restaurant. All of the servings are gargantuan in size, and the flavor of the steaks is paramount (my favorite is the New York Strip w/ peppercorn flavoring). Once you visit, every other steakhouse will seem second-rate.

This place is crowded, noisy, extremely overpriced and highly overrated. The steaks were good, but not excellent, and certainly not worth $35.00 each. Plus $7.00 for a salad. Plus $7.00 for a baked potato. There are many more pleasant and reasonably-priced steak restaurants in Denver. Save your money!
