Morton's St Louis, another hit

vip
Dined on March 24, 2016

As I try to visit every Morton's nationwide, my latest foray was St Louis. Gorgeous restaurant, great food and impeccable service. Many thanks to the GM Paul and my server Joe for a superb dining experience. Morton's treats me like a person not just a customer. Everyone addresses me by name and makes my visit warm and welcoming. Once again I had the steak and seafood combo. The steak was perfect, cooked exactly medium rare and melt in your mouth. The Caesar salad was delicious as was the Brussels sprout side dish. The white chocolate bread pudding was delicious. Trust me, get a Landry's select card, it is well worth the money and you will always be treated like royalty!

Poor Quality at 5 Star Prices

Dined on February 21, 2016

My husband and I have enjoyed amazing dining experiences all over the world at all price points. Morton ' s in Clayton, MO is a complete fail. We started with lobster bisque that had some nice chunks of lobster in a very thin base. The Morton ' s signature salad was romaine lettuce that was droopy, room temp with unidentifiable crumbles and tasteless Bleu cheese dressing. The bone in filet resembled a roast in texture and dull in flavor. The lamb chops were unappealing visually and lacked any real flavor. The creamed spinach had some kind of cheese, maybe, that gave it an odd taste and au gratin potatoes were in chunks instead of slices and though not that good, was the best thing we tasted. The chocolate souffle was a foamy mound of yuck, no chocolate taste whatsoever. The service was off, never served bread until we asked and then was given a loaf to take home. Just a total disappointment for $270 before tip.

Great Food, Great Service!

Dined on February 15, 2016

What an amazing evening after my horrible experience at Lucas Park Grille the night before. Morton's was everything one expects from a top-notch restaurant. Joe, our server, was personable, welcoming and informative. He flawlessly listed the evening specials for us and was very helpful in guiding us to our ultimate selections. My martini was perfect, a rarity now days for some reason, and my date raved about her margarita which is a high compliment from a Texas girl. The sommelier actually decanted the wine we chose, again rarely offered these days. My bone-in ribeye was grilled to perfection, juicy and flavorful, my date's lamb chops were perfect as well. The bread pudding and the soufflé were awesome. We wanted for nothing during our meal. Wine was poured, waters topped off with regularity. Service, service, service. We will be back SOON!

Good food but pricey!

Dined on February 15, 2016

We celebrated Valentine's Day at Mortons in Clayton. The setting is nice and feels expensive, and the food was good as expected. But, the prices seem to have risen since last time we were there. As mentioned earlier, the food is good as expected, but it makes for an expensive outing.

A Disappointing Valentine's Day

Dined on February 14, 2016

This visit was my first to Morton's in St. Louis. The service was extremely disappointing. After seating, no one visited the table for a while. I watched as others who followed were served bread and cocktails. Finally, a lady came over and took our drink order. My cocktail took some time as she joked the bar was short on lemons. My lemon martini was half full. I don't think anyone desires a half cocktail. The server was not friendly, did not explain the menu, seemed bothered by our questions, and was inattentive. I watched as other friendly servers smiled and explained the menu. At one point, I had to go ask for someone to bring me water during my meal. The lobster my husband received was similar in size to a jumbo shrimp. He was not happy. His steak was very small and not cooked to order. My steak was overcooked. The best part of my meal was the dessert. The molten cake and ice cream was delicious. Unfortunately, my coffee served at the end of the meal was absent silverware. Was I supposed to use my dessert spoon to stir my coffee? The finality involved the Valet. There was some confusion and apparently no system. While many customers waited (unwelcome) in the bar to avoid the cold, others would just walk out and were assisted by the valet. I thought about returning to give the place one more try and hope for a better experience. Now, I do not think I will. I will go to the Tenderloin Room or Ruth Chris, where my previous visits were far better than this one.

Disappointed

Dined on February 14, 2016

The food was great. The problems started at the beginning when we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. The table that was given was by the kitchen window. I had to sit sideways in order to sit my chair flat on the floor. We were mere inches from the table next to us which disturbed our conversation because we were talking over the couple next to us. We did go on Valentine's weekend so I understand they were busy but for $200 I would expect much much more. This was our first and last time at Mortons.

Over priced

Dined on February 14, 2016

Started off with reservations for 745 pm. We finally got seated at about 810. Nothing like making a reservation then having a 25 minute wait. The food is over priced, and not that great. I would definitely not spend the money to eat here again. Steak was nothing special and was kind of tough!

Great food but a bit overpriced

Dined on February 14, 2016

Morton's has a reputation for great steaks and they lived up to that. The food is great quality, but the price seems a bit high for what you get. There are other places in the city to get steaks just as good for quite a bit less. The atmosphere is great and it is a romantic spot with a nice ambiance. The noise level is enough so that you don't feel like you have to be quiet but not so loud that it is obnoxious. The service was good, but a few things were forgotten about or overlooked. All in all it was a nice evening, but we likely won't go back unless someone else is footing the bill.

Superior service and great steaks.

Dined on February 13, 2016

Our first time at a Mortons. We celebrated my daughter's 19th birthday. Special menus with names, group photographs, and every staffer giving best birthday wishes was a nice touch. Service was superior; while not hovered over we were well cared for by a team of servers. Foodwise, our steaks and seafood were spot on. Our fillets were very good and my wife thought her ribeye was the best she has had in years. The lobster and scallops were superbly cooked. The sides however were average. The truffle fries were tasty but our asparagus was too tough and the creamed spinach was a bit bitter. The deserts were great. We definitely will return when visiting St. Louis.

Morton's Steakhouse for Valentine's Day

Dined on February 13, 2016

My wife and I went to Morton's for a Valentine's dinner on Saturday, 2/13. The place was crowded and quite noisy, which was a bit disturbing. However, the food was outstanding, the service was top notch, and the value was fairly good for being a high end steakhouse. We sat near the kitchen, which is not preferable to many people, but we enjoyed watching the cooks prepare the food, similar to watching a food show give behind-the-scenes access to what the chefs do. It was quite entertaining to see the precision involved with plating. The food was well prepared and had great flavor. Obviously, the price can drive people away, but for special occasions, this is certainly a nice choice!

Morton's Lives up to its Reputation

Dined on January 23, 2016

My daughter and I enjoyed a special dinner at the Morton's in Clayton, MO. The restaurant was not at all crowded, so we may have had a little special attention. Our server, Javier, was exceptional, providing appropriate attention without "hovering", making helpful suggestions and anticipating our needs. The generous servings of food were amazing, as always, especially the peppered strip sirloin. Enjoyable all around. Highly recommend for special occasions (but be prepared for the "sticker shock" on pricing).

Perfect for a romantic night out

Dined on January 10, 2016

Morton's went above and beyond anything I could have expected. It was our first visit, and we will return for special occasions. The price is definitely high (more than I've ever spent on a meal before), but for a once a year special occasion, we were fine with it. The food was AMAZING. My husband was head over heels for the Lobster Bisque. We both ordered steaks, and they were cooked to perfection. We topped off the night with a dessert of Creme Brulee...best part of the night! Their cocktails and wine list were also large and inclusive. But more than anything I've already mentioned, the SERVICE was the best I've ever experienced. Friendly, open, polite and always around if you need them. We had three people keeping an eye on our table at any given time for empty glasses or plates. Overall, I was thrilled with the experience and will return. It's a wonderful treat to give yourself once in a great while.

The filet was tender, but lack any real flavor that warranted the high price. The scallops were nice with s great sauce. The shrimp smelled terrible and tasted worse. The service was slow and didn't seem to care what we needed or wanted. Wouldn't go back especially at the price point.

Needs an update!

Dined on December 30, 2015

I LOVE this restaurant. The staff is amazing, the food is unbeatable but the atmosphere seems like a time-machine throwback!! I like being able to see into the kitchen, and the entire place is adequately appointed. But for the money I spend on the food, I expect a hipper, more contemporary place to eat. It looks like it was done in the John Denver 70's and they decided that was it. PLEASE hire a good decorator and fix this place up! Then it would be 5 STARS all the way!

Over priced

Dined on December 29, 2015

The setting was really nice and the food was pretty good. There is no way the food is valued anywhere near the cost, so you are mainly paying for the romantic atmosphere. I suppose if you have nothing better to do with your money, then this is the place to waste it. Additionally, I felt that the server was a little condescending in her opening speech about the specials. She sounded too rehearsed and was not at all personable, more like a robot with a fake smile.

It doesn't happen that often, but when we get the opportunity we love it. Morton's sent me an email for a fabulous offer that coincided with our anniversary. From start to finish it made our night. Our menus had our name on it, and the food was to die for. The hostess took our picture for our anniversary dinner and printed us a great 5x7. The also emailed it as well.

Couldn't Get My Steak Right

Dined on October 16, 2015

I prefer a steak that is pink all the way through but not red in the center. I've ordered medium and medium-rare and had it come back this way so at Morton's I asked the waitress what the best way to order it and she recommended medium rare plus. The steak came back under cooked TWICE and both times the waitress was the one who said so and admitted she should have ordered it as medium and it would have been to my preference. In the end the steak was excellent but it took 30 minutes longer than the other guest to get my food and because I was relying on her expertise to order and was disappointed I was not particularly generous with my tip. When she collected the bill and saw what I had left (10% on a $250 bill) she never returned.

Steak lovers

Dined on August 19, 2015

The quality of the food is superb. The steak is butter like and all the sides are excellent but they are quite expensive at 13$. The sides are large but for onion rings to be 13$ is a little pricy but they are excellent. All the deserts are fantastic and worth trying. Unfortunately the night we went there was a large group in the back and a couple of big tables that were quite loud. In addition the valet was extremly busy and with only 1 guy it was confusing as to where to get the valet.
