Did not live up to expectations
As one of the 'best' Steakhouses downtown, I was a bit disappointed by Mortons. We had reservations for 2, for a Friday night at 8:30. We were told by the hostess, who was very nice, that they were clearing some tables and we could wait in the bar if we liked. We went to the bar and had a drink (which took a bit of time as the bartenders were initially busy talking, casually, with other staff and customers). We did not sit down to dinner until 9:30. At that time, the restaurant was still quite busy and tables were still being filled after we sat down. The presentation of the food and vegetables on a cart was interesting - and in my opinon did not add much to the ambiance or the delight of the restaurant - we could have done without it - as it took more time. The live lobster that 'swam' through the air via the watress' demonstration was a bit disturbing. As for dinner - my boyfriend enjoyed his steak. The $10 side of mashed potatoes were bland. I am not a steak eater and knew there would be a few good choices for my entree from the menu on the website. I was disappointed when talking to the waitress about the Salmon and Chicken (which both cost about $30). The Salmon was farmed and the Chicken was average basic chicken - not range free or grain fed. For the price, and for the 'quality' of Mortons, we expected better.
