Mortons gives a fairly reliable product in my experience--decent steak and a reliable surroundings. This branch is a bit below par. Service was just so-so, and the steaks were average, not great. Not a reasonable package for the money. We had a great experience at a new steakhouse, Steak 48, 4444 Westheimer, a few days later. Less expensive, much better quality meat, and wonderful service. HOGHLY RECOMMENDED alternative nearby.
The service was good, the food just below average, the drinks way overpriced. When one pays $60 for a steak, it should be cooked correct. Ordered med rare, got rare. Other parties steak was cooked OK. The sides were good. Charged $14.00 for a cocktail ordered with bar vodka. (which was not that great of a drink, bartender needs to learn how to make one). No reason for charging this much for this drink. Depend on around $100.00+ per head for a steak, drink, and couple of sides which two people can share. Have eaten at Morton;s in several different places and this location is not as good as other locations. This happens at all restaurants from time to time even expensive ones. The worse thing here was paying $14.00 for a cocktail. Probably will not go back to this location.
Me and a friend tried Morton's while staying in Houston. We both got the NY strip cooked medium rare. The steak was not a quality cut of meat. It was too grizzly. I felt like I got served a 15% steak at a 1% steak price. On top of that it made both of us sick to our stomachs. No puking or anything, but just bloating and gas. The service was very lacking as well and it wasn't busy. Of all the tables, only 5 had someone seated. This was on a Wednesday night. This place thinks they know quality, but they do not. The only thing good about Morton's was the cream spinach. It's pretty pathetic when your side item trumps your steak. Avoid this place. If you want quality at this price, go to Shulas.
