As its dedicated staff strives to present guests with the best dining experience possible, Morton’s The Steakhouse sets the table by serving up top-notch cuisine.
Diners at Morton’s are treated to unsurpassed customer service within an inviting atmosphere that creates an out-of-this-world dining destination.
General manager Zyron Schoniwitz and restaurant manager Ryan Hisatake — a Kaneohe resident who was recently promoted after spending 10 years as a server at the restaurant — invite diners to experience the ultimate in cuisine and service at Morton’s The Steakhouse.
“It’s all about creating value, and that starts with aloha; when you walk into a restaurant, you want to feel good,” says Schoniwitz. “For me, work has always been a place to enjoy yourself while performing at a very high level. Customers notice that, and it shines through when a team of people are dedicated to exceeding your expectations.”
Diners can look forward to the best USDA Prime beef aged two-to-three weeks and incorporated throughout Morton’s diverse menu. Center-cut Prime Ribeye ($51) wows guests as the 16-ounce cut is cooked to tender perfection and served with au jus to accent the flavorful steak, which is presented beautifully with cross-hatched grill marks.
Seafood enthusiasts can reel in the flavor with Alaska King Crab Legs (market price), which are steamed to lock in the rich, buttery taste and come with drawn butter and lemon.
Morton’s The Steakhouse also offers “Power Hour” specials Sunday through Friday, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Diners may enjoy specially priced beer, wine, cocktails and martinis, as well as discounted “bar bites.” Favorites include Short Rib Steak Tacos ($8 during Power Hour, regularly priced at $15), which feature tender braised beef with chipotle mayo, pico de gallo, onions and avocado, Parmesan Truffle Matchstick Fries ($7, $13) and Prime Cheeseburgers ($8, $15).
Guests also may take advantage of complimentary valet parking at the landing area fronting the restaurant’s elevator. Simply drive into Ala Moana Center, leave one’s car with a friendly valet attendant and relax before enjoying a memorable dining experience.
