 These phrases describe one of Atlanta’s best restaurants, Morton’s – The Steakhouse ~ Exceptional Food and Wonderful Location! 

 I recently had the privilege of attending a dinner for some of the city’s elite planners, held in one of the private event spaces at Morton’s – Downtown.  The theme of the evening was a Rehearsal Dinner. 

Private Event Space


In addition to the restaurant, which is located in the SunTrust Plaza, they also have separate special event space (also in the SunTrust Plaza) that can accommodate a small intimate gathering all the way to a large party of 300 or so guests.  One of the attributes that appeal to many clients is the ability to have a space that allows access to the outside.  You have that here.  So for those clients that would like to have cocktails outside or provide a place for perhaps a Cigar Roller – this is perfect.  

Outside Terrace


 One of the entrances to the private events area is through the lobby of the SunTrust building ~ which is also an option for portions of your event.  When you enter the doors, you are in a “reception” area that is perfect for a Guest Book, Escort Cards, etc.  

 Our evening provided the delectable cuisine that Morton’s is known for.  

 As we entered the Main room, we were greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres consisting of Roma Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil on Crostini and Sliced Tenderloin on a Crostini.  Both were delicious and I have to admit, I may have enjoyed more than my share of the Sliced Tenderloin on Crostinis. 

When it was time to take our seats, we were able to select from among the many tables each with a unique floral presentation.  Floral Matters created various bridal bouquets, which were set in round glass vases.  Each of the bouquets was unique and contained different colors, textures and themes.  I thought this was a wonderful idea.  


Once seated we were served a Whipped Horseradish Caesar Salad.  Next we were presented with a difficult decision and that was which entrée we would like from the choices of, a single cut filet with Béarnaise Sauce, or Chicken Christopher with a Garlic Beurre Blanc Sauce or Atlantic Salmon.  Each entrée was served with Garlic Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.  

To finish off the meal, we were served an amazing slice of New York Cheesecake.  Unfortunately, I was so full from the meal that I couldn’t finish my serving (and for that my waistline is pleased).  

 We were also treated to a variety of cupcakes from Highland Bakery.  I tried the Butter Pecan one and was very impressed.  Highland Bakery also provided an adorable version of a Groom’s cake – which is typically served at the Rehearsal Dinner. This was a model of an actual cake that they recently produced for a client.  The groom was a sound tech – so the cake was as a tribute to him. 


 Whether you need a space for a Rehearsal dinner, anniversary party, Mitzvah or Wedding Reception ~ one consideration should most definitely be the Private Event space at Morton’s ~ The Steakhouse.  You and your guests will be extremely pleased with the service and the delicious food.
