We recently ate at Morton's for our 10th wedding anniversary. We've been to many fine restaurants in Pittsburgh and in other cities, and felt that Morton's would be the perfect place to celebrate this milestone. We had been warned that it was pricey, but we don't mind paying extra for a special occasion and especially if the dining experience warrants it. The atmosphere was fine. The dining room was crowded, but we were seated at an intimate table. The wait-staff was very friendly and helpful--we never felt overwhelmed or underattended. For dinner, we started with lobster bisque, which was tasty, but not exceptional. I had oysters, which were very good. For the main course, my husband had the filet, which was ""fine"". He felt it was overly seared on the outside. I had the prime rib, which was described as a double-cut. It was actually a much smaller portion than I expected. I really thought I'd have plenty of left overs, but I was able to finish the entire thing--something I don't usually do with prime rib! It was delicious, although a bit salty. We were choosy when picking our a la carte vegetables, thinking that we'd have huge portions served, as is the case with Ruth's Chris. They were NOT large portions--only about 8-10 asparagus spears and the hashbrown potatoes were presented like a potato pancake, but overcooked and too crispy. Our dessert, the hot chocolate cake, was very good, but again, not exceptionally presented. These items, with 2 glasses of merlot and a soft drink, was over $180- not including the tip. It was a good dinner, but nothing stood out as truly exceptional, unique, or what I would describe as a culinary experience--as you would expect with these prices.
Pros: good food, although not exceptional
