For great steaks, great service and that extra attention to detail go to Morton’s Steakhouse Las Vegas.
Dining at Morton’s Steakhouse was more than just having a great dinner. It was a great experience. I made online reservations through OpenTable.com and made a note that we were celebrating my husbands birthday, expecting nothing more than a small dessert to arrive with a candle in it.
The people at Morton’s really know how to wow a guest. Upon checking in we were greeted by name and my husband was wished a happy birthday. The host escorted us to a lovely booth, wished us a wonderful evening and sprinkled a little metalic confetti on the table cloth to make it more festive for our birthday celebration. We were handed menus with a Happy Birthday message across the top along with the date; ours to keep.
Our server arrived and also wished my husband a very happy birthday. We took the wine list and ordered drinks. I tried one of their specialty drinks; the Lean & Green. Delicious. The wine list had an excellent selection and variety of wines. We went with a 2007 Paraduxx, a Cabernet and Zinfandel blend from Duckhorn Wine Company in Napa. Our server, Brandon let us know that they were treating my husband to a dessert and in addition to their fabulous assortment on the dessert tray they also do several souffles. The hubbie (actually me) chose the Grand Marnier Souffle (which needs to be ordered at the beginning of the meal because of the preparation time).
The Dinner Menu has a mouthwatering assortment of prime steaks and chops. Porterhouse, Filet Mignon, Bone-In Veal Chop, Double-Cut Lamb Chop and Ribeye Steaks are among the menu selections. Seafood and chicken dishes like Chicken Bianco, Baked Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp, Maine Lobsters, Alaskan King Crab Legs or Chilean Seabass are temping as well.
We started with the Lump Crabmeat Cocktail and the Bibb Lettuce Salad. Both were fresh and delicious. We went to Morton’s to have steak and we did. I had the 6oz Filet Mignon and my husband had the New York Strip. If heaven was a food it would be a Morton’s Steak; absolutely scrumptious and cooked perfectly. For side dishes we shared the Sauteed Spinach & Button Mushrooms and Lyonnaise Potatoes. The Maitre’D stopped by our table, camera in hand and took our picture. The birthday Souffle arrived and was one of the best souffles I’ve ever had. The Maitre’D came back with our photo( 4 x 6) in a Morton’s Steakhouse card with a Happy Birthday wish and the date written inside.
It’s All About the Details
My husband and I agree that this is one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Las Vegas. Everything about it was superb. There are many places you can go for great steaks. It’s the little things that separate a good steakhouse from a great steakhouse. You need atmosphere, a friendly and professional staff, high quality food and attention to detail. Morton’s Steakhouse scored high marks in all areas. The very classy way they handle special occasions blew us away. It was completely unexpected and made a terrific impression. Don’t wait for a special occasion to go to Morton’s Steakhouse. It’s great anytime.
