Always seasonally decorated, always gracious service, creative preparations and a wonderful and extensive wine list, this is a special place tucked away in Libertyville. Although it claims to be all about steaks, there hasn’t been anything on the menu which didn’t please from appetizers through to desserts. Specials always tend to be special, but everything is great. This restaurant recently underwent an upgrade, moving the dining room into a nice space on the second level, creating a beautiful lounge area on the first floor. Definitely worth the trip.

We should have posted Morton’s long ago since we do visit throughout the year, though mostly for celebrations since it is a special occassion type of place. The steaks here are, in one word, perfect, if they aren’t the attentive Morton’s staff will make sure they are the second time around. On top of everything else, with the steaks being perfect, so is everything else. The Caeser is fantastic with the right amount of chill and the right amout of zing, the Wedge is outstanding with Bleu Cheese and the scallops and crab cakes as appetizers are truly special. The sides are big enough to share, so definitely do share and the steaks are indeed excellent. For dessert, don’t resist the souffles, they require extra time for good reason —> they’re great.

We also participated in an enjoyable wine appreciation night, part of the Morton’s Master Classes. If you have the opportunity, it is a pleasant and informative evening of appetizers and wines.
