I don't normally write many reviews, but I just came back from dinner at Morton's and need to let others know that it's not exactly the great restaurant it claims to be. Dinner started off really well, cocktails were very good, the oysters and tuna tartare were great., some of the best I've had, and I let the server know that Then came the lobster cocktail, ""shoe leather"" i believe is what the other reviewer said. My husband even said ""I know almost nothing about lobster but even I know this isn't good"". So we sent it back. Then came the beefsteak tomato salad. I had ordered it with blue cheese. What he brought was the onion vinaigrette. When I told the server I had ordered the blue cheese he said ""yeah, but i'll have to make a whole new one"". A whole new one would have consisted of 2 big slices of tomato and some blue cheese. I mean, come on. On top of the fact that it's the end of July and the tomatoes we had on our plate tasted like they were shipped from Mexico a week prior. So instead of taking it away and replacing it with what was ordered, he said he'd just bring us some blue cheese dressing and then remarked that the onion vinaigrette was alot better anyway. The steak was very good, great sear to it, good flavor and the souffle was also nice. But stay clear of lobster and make sure your server hears your order. Otherwise, you'll get a guilt trip for him getting it wrong and then a mediocre compromise. We go to alot of restaurants in the Minneapolis area. Believe me, there are alot of better places to spend $240 on dinner for 2.
Pros: good cocktails and great oysters and seared steak
Cons: completely overcooked lobster and less than gracioius response to complaints
