We all know about mortons and the service. Everyone knows its a complete joke. I dont know who they think they are. Either that are rushed or miss managed, something.

The steak is fine. Is it worth the 44 dollars for the filet, maybe, but the 950 desserts are a joke, the 1050 mac and cheese are a joke. I guarantee they will MESS YOUR ORDER UP. I have been here 3 times. Not once have they gotten it correct. And I am usually at places like Carabbas. I am not being picky. Cold steak, forgotten sides, missing waiters.

The place is so not worth your money. its more to be "seen" then to actually eat.

They get by with the pricing and reputation. Anyone who says they are great doesn't go out enough.

And do they care? NO!!!

Pros: If you want to be "Seen"

Cons: Service - Price - Sides - Desserts (everything but 1 - 44 dollar steak)

I took my best friend to Morton's to celebrate her new job. What an incredible time we had. Our server, Richard was very attentive and made a lot of great suggestions. I had the Chicago style Ribeye on the bone and my friend had the filet , which was huge! We started with Crab Cakes, which were the best I've had and then split a salad. For dessert Richard suggested the Hot Lava Cake which we were going to split. Then the maitre'd came by with a tray of complimentary after dinner drinks and we ordered the Creme Brulee to go with them!. We had our share of "Mortinis" . I had the Pomegranate. Yum! And the cherry on the cake was the photo taken of us at the table and then presented in a card.
We were totally impressed!

Unbelievable steaks! The service can be hit or miss depending on the day and your server. That's why I didn't give it the full 5 stars. The 24-ounce Porterhouse with a side of creamed spinach is a must!

Everyone knows Morton's has wonderdul steak, but the service has been awful the last few visits. My order was not correct and then served to the wrong people, they forgot our drinks, they didn't pull out our chairs, and the bill was wrong twice. When at such a nice place, you expect to pay for great service, but all we got was a mess. Never going back to the Morton's in Hartford again. Save your money for people who appreciate it.

Pros: The Best Steak

Cons: The Worst Service..consistently!

To die for. As a matter of fact, someone did die there choking on a piece of steak a couple of months ago.

I've overlooked Morton's for too long. What was I thinking? This place is great. The food is top notch & the waiters & bartenders are fabulous & knowledgable. Every bite of my dinner was tasty & fresh. The lobster bisque is unbelieveable. Morton's has an extensive wine list. Definitely check it out. The entrance on Main Street right next to the Old State House - not easy to spot from the street, but once you find the heavy wooden front door, it makes you feel like you are entering a secret club. The dimly lit entry way and bar back this up. We sat in a cozy booth with a view of the whole restaurant. They also have private rooms for large parties / meetings. Here's a secret: they serve free sirlon burgers Mon - Fri from 5pm - 7pm @ the bar. Mmmm!

I don't need to begin this by saying the same thing everyone else does when reviewing Morton's, about the cart being wheeled before you and the bustle of this staple steak house. You just don't get this kind of service anywhere these days, it is perfection, almost unfair to any other server trying to work at any other restaurant. From the friendly hostess, to the tuxedo clad manager Scott. Their focus on excellence must be relentless, our server had just finished being trained a few days earlier and he took care of everthing meticulously until the very end. The food was also perfect, prime steaks cooked to exactly medium rare and creamy mashed potatoes, all the way up to the warm chocolate cake. If perfect dining is what you seek, seek reservations, the only ones who knock this top notch eatery are the ones who don't expect how hard they get it in the pocket when they sit down. But it is worth every benjamin.

maybe because I am used to Peter Luger and The Palm, i was let down quite a bit... after getting seated next to the host stand in a half empty restaurant, we were presented with bland lobster bisque, and a colossal shimp cocktail that was more average in size. and the cocktail sause had relish in it, no horseradish was served, and when it was asked for, it was dry as a bone. the double cut porterhouse, requested pink in the middle was served bloody... prolly not going back, maybe just for a good martini...

I've been delighted at Morton's Lower Manhattan and Chicago steakhouses. They're doing their name a disservice in Hartford. There are at least two great restaurants in downtown Hartford with better steaks. I was shocked that they screwed up a filet. The potatoes lyonnaise were worse than bad-diner-home-fries. The service, however, was impeccable. This was some of the finest service we've received in Connecticut. We'll be back; sometimes karma conspires to make a one-in-a-thousand situation occur.

This is simply the greatest restaurant to have in any city. The servers and service in hartford is top notch, nothing like the stuffy service at the Max joints. Maitr'd's very attentive to everything happening and the chef was kind enough to give me his hat!! As far as prices, morton's is worth everypenny, plus 50% tips to all employees!!!

Morton's is the final word in Dining.
The atmosphere and wait staff will blow you away with a European Style elegance. The food, especially the filet, and the Godiva Chocolate Dessert are worth every dime.

If you want to eat a great steak, and lots of it, then Morton's is the place! I'm not, however, surprised that they didn't take first place. Most people in Hartford, and CT as a whole, are too cheap to eat at Morton's.

Morton's of Chicago belongs on the top ten steak restaurants for Hartford. Why?
The sophicated elegance and,"we all belong" attidue of this fine establishment is in a leauge of it's own. You definatly don't find any penny pinchers or those cheap, " I have a 2 for 1 coupon", customers here. The vibe in the air is of anticipation while waiting for your steak, like when waiting for a 4th of July firework festival to start. That's the quality and service I like. Excellent Service, The #1 Best Steak in Connecticut.

The best steakhouse in CT is Mortons. The food is always fresh and prepared just right. The only drawback is everything is ala carte. Even though it is on the expensive side, you get what you pay for. The steak is much better than Ruth Chris.

My first Morton's experience was in Chicage many years ago and I was apprehensive if a local clone would measure up. I was delighted to find that it did. The only thing missing was my post dinner stroll down Rush Street and Michigan Ave. I hope more people drive into Hartford to sample this gem of a restaurant. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion or if you want to impress. Now if we could get a nice jazz bar or two close by...

It's expensive, but the food is incredible. The waitstaff are very nice and helpful. Everything is seperate though, the salad, the entree, sidedishes etc. With a bottle of wine, entrees, and a couple of sidedishes and dessert don't expect to get out of there under $150 for 2 ppl. The portions are huge though, we couldn't finish them. The steak and prime rib are so tender you can cut them with a fork. The chocolate Godiva cake is a must. I highly recommend the place.

Here's the thing about a place that serves up big steaks and big cocktails to bigwigs---you know you need a pretty big wallet to dine there. A meal here will set you back, back, back---unless, of course, you're celebrating the sort of pay…
