The food was okay, but not great/memorable for the price. The service was impeccable. Given the other options for seafood and steak in the area I would not come back.

Dinner was amazing, as usual. We go to Morton's for Valentine's every year. This time we decided to try a few new items & were pleasantly surprised with how great the were. The escargot had puff pastry on top, & were piping hot & loaded with garlic. The prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella were delicious. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. I look forward to our next dinner there.

I took my girlfriend out to Morton’s steakhouse for Valentine’s Day, and it was the best choice I made. We were both so graciously pleased with our meals and the service that we got. Our server was very informative with every dish on the menu and made it easier for us to pick a meal. I highly recommend this place if you’re thinking of taking your significant other on a date.

My date and I have been to this restaurant many times and never got such a disappointment. The waiter we had literally spit in our faces when he said his “s”s. It was extremely off-putting, and made me uncomfortable to drink the water or anything else that was put out on the table.

Only recommended for previous experiences. Service was sub par than what I’ve seen before. At one time it was my preferred steak house above all others. The chef knew the perfection of a beautiful carmelized sear on a rare filet and a cool center. This time they just served a cold steak and cold baked potato. I was a little heartbroken over it. I hope the passion comes back.

It was Valentine's Day, so the ambience was a bit lacking, as there were extra tables, it appeared, for the occasion. Not a big deal, since it was Valentine's Day, and we likely wouldn't have gotten a table otherwise. The service was very good, the steaks wonderful, the sides and salads fine, and the wine decent, and although a splurge for us, it wasn't too painful when the bill came. Hey, no one is going to Morton's for a value dinner. It is a splurge. The only real complaint is that the "big band" and crooner type music that was being played was a trifle loud, especially with the extra tables. It made the atmosphere louder than it should have been and made it harder to understand our server, who was very good, but whose first language is not English.

FANTASTIC Valentine’s Dinner. I had the lobster/filet special, my wife had the lobster tail, and we shared Brussels sprouts and Parmesan truffle French fries. Pretty pricey but SO delicious. Our waiter was wonderful and very attentive to my pregnant wife’s gluten allergy. Wonderful experience.

My wife and I decided to give Morton to try for Valentine’s Day we normally go to Ruth Chris or the palm or Del Frisco‘s. We made reservations and when we arrived we had to wait approximately 10 to 15 minutes which was no big deal after we were seated it was 10 minutes before a waiter came by to see us. I ordered an 8 ounce filet medium well and the waiter read back medium rare and I corrected him and when i got my steak it was definitely medium rare. I let it slide and decided to still eat it, the steak was nearly room temperature as if it had been sitting to the side while the rest of our food was prepared ($59 for a mediocre steak at best, i can get a better filet at coastal flats for $22). We also had an empty salt shaker and asked to be brought a full one...i timed that 11 minutes had gone by before we got salt..food wasn’t very well seasoned snd needed salt but was barely hot by the time we got salt. The staff just seem extremely unprepared to handle the night. There were plenty of waiters but it was every msn for himself snd no teamwork..very chaotic. Even cashing out was a pain...waiter took payment and we didn’t see him again for 15 minutes. Ill stick to Ruths Chris, they never disappoint. THIS PLACE RUINED OUR V DAY!

Food is good with traditional steak house (high) prices for steak and sides. Crab meat cocktail was excellent. Atmosphere drags the rating down. Tables are too close together, waiters continually bump into you as they pass by and servers could use some more training (reach in front of diners to fill water glasses or provide utensils).

Three of our steaks were undercooked and we’re delivered back after most of the food had been eaten. Just got I’m sorry and that’s it. Plates were not cleared in a timely fashion.

Our Capital Grill experiences have been excellent when this has happened with our steaks. Should have gone there.

What happened to Morton's Reston. Food is still good though pricey.

Service is horrible. There was a near mutiny all around us this past Saturday night. The people around us were outraged about the poor to non-existent service.

Our waiter was clueless. His usual answer to any question was "I don't know". Huh? Hint: Go ask!

So they screwed up my partners dinner and it made her sick. The manager apologized and comped her dinner but it still wasn't worth it.

We're going back to Eddie Merlot's.

Love Morton’s!

2 of our 4 steaks were undercooked so we ended up eating in shifts which is not ideal for such a pricey meal.

Our waitress was adequate but not up to par...we’ve eaten here many times and It definitely detracts from the meal when the service is “eh.”

Food was delicious though and we always come back for that reason. So despite this outing being off, we will definitely be back again.

Ugh...so disappointed. Had the first reservation of the night at 5 pm . We were the first people to order and 2/3 steaks were still raw when served . They were sent back but you know it goes , steaks cooked again now overcooked and our sides were cold as we waited for our entrees. Special occasion dinner... not so special.

Our server (never had her before) did not give us the the restaurant week menu. She was MIA a lot. I have never experienced this before at this location. When the bill cam, she did not give me the bill just what I needed to sign. After waiting for her about 10 mins, I just had to leave. I will definitely request specific servers next time.

We celebrated a special occasion at this Morton's on a Sunday evening and had an excellent experience. Reminded us a lot of the, as we have read, closed downtown Seattle Morton's. For many years that restaurant and its General Manager, Michael, were our favorites - the Reston Morton's is now the favorite.

Service was spotty. Glasses were not filled. Portions were delivered incorrectly (i.e. my wife's salad came out with my shared appetizer, but they forgot to bring my salad). Just not the level we have experienced at other Morton's in Baltimore, Houston, Huntsville, etc.

We were seated immediately. They have a coat check which you don't see often. Be prepared to tip when you pick up your coat. We were seated in a cozy spot but if was near the food prep area of the kitchen so it was noisy. I'd stay away from that seat unless you want to be entertained by the kitchen. The wait staff had personality, had a sense of humor and was very helpful with our questions. The food was excellent. We had the filet mignon and the rib eye. The waiter suggested medium plus when we wanted our beef well done. It was perfect.I wish I had the option of single size sides.

Great service, food quality has gone down quite a bit. I dine at Morton’s often and they need to focus on the food and get it right. My last 4 dining experiences the steak was under cooked or over cooked.

I was expecting the food to be a lot better than it was. My steak was overdone, I had to send it back. The lobster oscar was tough, with little taste. My glass of wine was good. For $200, it was poor value. Frankly, I expected a better performance from Morton's.
