One for Special Occasions

Morton's is a very nice restaurant to go for a special occasion like a birthday or an anniversary.

Firstly, the food is great, of course. The high quality ingredients used result in very good food. We had the steak and seafood set which came with a salad, single cut filet mignon, a choice of scallops, prawns or crab cakes and a side dish. It was the best steak I've ever had in Singapore and the best crab cakes I've ever had. Even the mushrooms and asparagus were very good.

Apart from the salad, the portion looked manageable.. but it was still too much for me. But when the chocolate cake came, We still managed to polish it off.

The next time, however, I'd consider sharing. I was so full I could barely walk out of the restaurant..

Secondly, the ambiance is pretty comfortable. It is not the quiet type of restaurant. In fact, we were there on a Friday night and it was packed full.. and even a tad noisy. But it had a very comfortable atmosphere to it. Not the kind of place where you have to speak in hushed tones and the waiters look as if they are too cool to be working.

Thirdly, the service is quite good. The restaurant was packed when we were there and they were really very busy. But service was fairly prompt and the lady who was in charge of our table was very friendly.

Finally, I think it is a very good place to go for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. The restaurant does some very sweet things for you - never mind that they also do it for just about every other table - everyone else seems to be there for a birthday or an anniversary as well. They decorate your table for you.. have the menu printed with your names on it.. sing you a birthday song.. and take a picture for you and present it to you as a personalised card. 

And it was a pleasant surprise when we found out at the end of the meal that the molten chocolate cake we ordered was actually on the house!

Morton's is an expensive restaurant to go to.. but definitely a good choice for a special occassion. 

The steak and seafood set is available til end June this year (not sure if it'd be extended) but it is not on the menu. You just have to mention it though and they'd let you know what is included in the set.
