First of all the manager welcomed us and wished our guest happy birthday!! We were presented with our menus with our friends name imprinted on it, which made him feel extra special....what a great touch!! We had a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent and the service was awesome.....our waiter Oscar took great care of us.
This was an awesome experience!! Thank you....

2nd time in a month we have been there...we ordered a Porterhouse for 2 ($125) med/rare to rare. I came medium well to medium, and quite a bit of gristle. The manager came to our table as I was trying to cut into a large chuck of gristle...he commented that that happens sometime on the strip side...I responded that it was from the filet side...he just walked away. 2 of us ordered the onion soup...the crouton was so hard we couldn't even cut it with our steak knife. We told the waiter as he took them away and said he would show it to the chef...didn't hear back from him or the chef. Imagine our surprise when the check came and they charged us for those 2 uneatable dishes. I've enjoyed other Morton restaurants in the past...this was by far the WORST upscale dining experience I've ever had!

From the moment we walked in, the service began. Top notch service from everyone in the restaurant. Food was excellent as was the service. They made our evening everything we were hoping for and more.

Morton's is all about a combination of personal service, very well prepared and delicious food and excellent presentation. The Palm Desert Morton's hits the mark on all of these themes. They have a good wine list but also a corkage policy if you want to bring a favorite wine. The carrot cake is a good desert. The restaurant is sensitive to gluten and other allergies.

The food was great, as always. The server seemed bored and service was slow. Got the feeling that when we ordered from the "pre fixe" menu, the waiter appeared to be dejected (fearing a low tip???).
I believe this to be an aberration, as we have dined there often. Maybe just a case of the out-of-season Blues.

We had a great experience. We did receive a baked potato that was not very hot and once we brought it to the waiter's attention he brought us a new hot one. Our other food items were great. The steak especially is what I would recommend at Morton's restaurant . We had the filet and it almost melted in my mouth. It was cooked just right. The manager kept checking on us to see how our service was and it was great. I would also recommend the lobster bisque over a salad if you are deciding between the two.

Morton's is my "go to" steakhouse in the Palm Desert area. Excellent service by a professional staff and the food has always been outstanding. A little noisy this time due to a group of 8 young adults spending too much time in the bar prior to being seated next to my table. This caused us to call our evening earlier than we wanted. I have eaten at Morton's many times and this was the first time it was loud in the dining area.

I hope we just hit a bad night-although this should never happen at such an establishment. Heard from our Uber driver after that Morton's reputation is not as good as it used to be. No kidding!We have been to this Morton's many times and had wonderful, unforgettable experiences! We came to celebrate our anniversary and we brought my sister in law with us who we have raved about this place for years to (she had never eaten at Morton's before). The evening started out well but went quickly downhill before we even order our entrees. This was no personal, special experience. After we finished our first drink and appetizers we waited and had to track down a server to order wine, our dinner and desserts. No idea where our server disappeared to. (Turns out he left partway through the night without telling anyone.)The service was terrible.The steak was NOT hot. The mac and cheese was more liquid and grit than creamy and tasty.The asparagus were few, inconsistent in size and woody. We sat there for an extremely long time with dirty, finished dishes-no one would take them away despite the fact that every staff member (including the manager) walked by plenty of times. It seemed they were all too busy sitting at every other customer's tables. (Just because we are not locals or regulars?!) It finally took to me shoving my dinner plate far into the center of the table and looking mightily unimpressed before all of a sudden 2 people were there to clean the table. The dessert took forever after we had our entrees, although I do not know why because we ordered it with plenty of time to have it baked and brought out shortly after our entrees; I think it was forgotten about. We informed the manager about our not so great experiences who, in my opinion, gave us more of a "poor me, I am so sorry" pity show than an actual sincere apology. I know my sister in law will never eat at a Morton's again, and I am embarrassed by how much we raved about this place only to be extremely let down.

We came to celebrate a birthday but the prices did not fit the value. We settled for a salad we shared,an appetizer and a soufflé. Disappointed the Cesar was not made at the table for such an upscale resteraunt and the soufflé was rubbery. I think we are taking this place off our preferred list. On the up side service was great and the people were very nice. If your into spending lots of $$ on dinner this could be your place

This was not our first visit to the Palm Desert Morton's. Couldn't pass up the $36.00 special! The general manager, Josh, makes you feel like an old friend. Our server, Sage, is very personable as well as an outstanding addition to the staff. he summer time is a good time to visit as it is not as busy as the winter. All in all, it was a very nice experience.

I was anticipating having lobster bisque soup. When it was served, it was so peppery that I couldn't eat it. It wasn't my lack of eating spicy foods, as I also ordered the cajon ribeye steak, and savored every bite.

Host was awesome. Waiter was very hard to understand and seemed rushed. We were sat next to an extremely loud group of young men that dominate the noise level of the room. Not the best anniversary dinner experience. But the host did take and gave us a nice annavisery pic.

Mortons has a wide selection of excellent meats, salads, sides, but best of all is the dessert!!!!! Soufflé like no where else! It had been at least 20 years ago when we ate there and I still remember that dessert! I did miss the meat cart but do understand...if more nothing else you must have that soufflé!!!! Also the online reservation was right on and so easy I will definitely use that again!

This place is truly amazing! I have not a single complaint about my experience here. My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate her finally landing her dream job! The first thing I ordered was a whiskey sour to drink and it was the best I've had in quite some time; just the right amount of everything. The food was great, the Wedge salad to start was one of the best I've had and was definitely the biggest I've had. The New York Strip I got was prepared exactly how I ordered it and had very good flavor. The sides were a great mix to the rest of our meal and the vegetables were fresh. - Now for the service: The whole staff was great, but our server Rogue was one of the best, very friendly and accommodating. He knew the menu very well and was there to help with questions and recommendations. He just seemed to be cool guy. All around, Morton's absolutely delivered! Would not even have to think about going again when the chance arises.
My medium rare steak was one of the best I have ever eaten. It was cooked perfectly with no additional flavor detracting from the quality of the meat. The bread was delicious but was served as a whole round loaf -- difficult to cut without putting fingers where others would eat. Maybe serving it with a napkin would help. The salad was good as was the spinach side dish. However, the inappropriate music for this upscale restaurant was very loud and was not lowered after two requests. We could not talk comfortably. Unfortunately we probably won't return and could not recommend it to others.
wonderful as usual
One of my favorite places. My husband and I always ate at the bar so I took two friends for their first visit. Wally was awesome as usual and they both loved it. They were both hungry for a steak. Lots of food and service at the bar can't be beat. Over the years Wally and my husband became good friends and he always remembered our favorites.
great vacation dinner,while in palm desert
As good as the Mortons' in West Hollywood.Rib eye and 8oz filet,excellent.Try the house sauces,they can add even more flavor to the meat.Even the purists will enjoy trying these.Mortons for steaks,always a good choice.
