M Restaurant at the Morris House

Voted Most Romantic, Best Ambiance by Open Table, and Best of Philly by Phila. Magazine and Open Table for Outdoor Dining, M Restaurant is an intimate, beautiful spot in the heart of cc Philadelphia, serving an affordable menu of creative appetizers, etrees, desserts, artisin cheeses and meats and bar menus, all under $30.
We are proud to support local farmers and serve sustainably raised produce, meat and fish.

We have recreated our well known menu style into something even more fantastic! Even though the Courtyard is closed for the winter, we still have 2 beautiful dining rooms. Our Main Dining room a great spot for intimate dining and close to Jazz. The Library is now open to our diners most Fridays and Saturdays (depending on private parties) and has a beautiful historical fireplace, which makes for some of the most intimate dining in the city!

"The bar tender and wait staff were simply overwhelmed. We waited at bar for 20 minutes to get a drink and then moved to the table and it was equally as delayed. We asked for more bread due to the long wait between courses and we felt the bread was rationed. Really too bad as we have liked the bar and decided to celebrate a birthday with 7 people. There was not acknowledgement that is was a special occasion. Very disappointed"

"We went to dinner before the theatre. We had a wonderful experience with Anthony the bar tender he was very accommodating. Unfortunately our waitress was not very pleasant she had mentioned she was new so that's understandable (wasn't familiar with certain things on menus but her rudeness and never checking back in after we were served was not acceptable as a server. We left her a 20% tip reluctantly....would have had a better tip if she had been more pleasant."

"Everything was extremely salty to the point that the rice was inedible. Couple that with the lack of water refills for an unpleasant dining experience. On top of that they forgot to bring us our side dish and offered no apologies whatever. For the same price, go to Talula's garden a block away, much better service."

"I had six of my family members join me for dinner at the M restaurant. We had a big beautiful table in the library overlooking the courtyard. The ambiance was incredible! The food was excellent and my family said they would love to go there again (especially to sit outside in the courtyard with the live music)!"

"Wow what a meal!!! The meat is really good, and they have lots of other dishes. But the Peppered Steak was cooked perfectly with lots of flavor. The price is very reasonable. Many thanks for a lovely evening to Max and Lowell, brilliant service! Good barman too, more than happy to make us drinks that were not on the menu. You will like this place. We will be back!!!!!!"

"We returned to enjoy another delicious meal with great eye appeal. I loved M's mushroom soup and spaghetti squash with pesto . I tasted yummy pan-fried quail from plate to my right and gnocchi to my left. No one left a morsel on their plates. Our waiter knowledgeable and attentive. The courtyard which beckons for al fresco dining this summer on another visit to Philly."

"The place is filled with Old Philadelphia ambiance. Perfect decor and furnishings. The patio looks lovely and, I am sure, offers a very pleasant dining experience during summer season. Unfortunately, the food was rather unremarkable. The entrees - Pan Seared Salmon and Pan Fried Quail - were good but nothing special; and the desserts - Vanilla Custard and Apple Tart - were a complete disappointment. The tart's crust was rock hard and the custard tasted like Jell-O vanilla pudding. They did make an excellent martini though, hence for the future - will keep this place in mind for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres."

"We like to dine in places that let us try many different plates, both at a bar and in a dining room, and M fits that bill. We enjoyed the 3 for $15 bar special and were able to have the most delicious fried shrimp with lime cilantro, confit tender chicken wings with a mango chili sauce, braised oxtail with a soy marinade, delicious cheeses, and the most wonderful bowl of roasted spicy nuts. This coupled with creative cocktails and great happy hour pricing for beers and wines has made this our new favorite place to not only go on our way home from work, but to also bring office buddies with us. With spring being around the corner, we are looking forward to taking full advantage of their outdoor bar and garden as well. Life is good at M...."

"We were shocked to see the reasonable pricing of the wines at M- we found at least 10 around the $30.00 price range-and were grateful that they have this approach that allows the regular person to afford augmenting their meal with nice wine. What a find of a little gem, tucked away in the shadows of Washington Square that is cozy, quiet and romantic! We were given the choice of sitting in the historic library with a working fireplace, or in the main dining room. We chose the library, and felt like we were in another world! Our meal was delicious- a blend of wonderful fresh flavors with very reasonable pricing. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the evening and are already looking forward to having dinner in their lovely garden. The whole place feels like you are in Europe, and not in Philly. How rare to have a caring staff, great service, delicious food and affordable wine. We will be back, thank you M for making our night so special!"

"We came here before a show at the Walnut theater. The location could not be better, and the atmosphere and noise level in the restaurant were perfect for our group of 5, which included our 88-year-old grandmother. But that's where the compliments end. We all ordered appetizers and entrees, and of those dishes, only the peppery vegetable soup was delicious. Everything else was mediocre to sub-par. The braised short rib was flavorless (although the greens were yummy). The gnocchi was almost inedible - pasty globs of dough covered in an unctuous red sauce. The spaghetti squash entree was tiny and tasted odd. But the biggest offenders were the Bass and the Salmon - both sat in a buttery mess of vegetables and lacked any meaningful flavor. We finished it all off with the exceedingly dry lemon cake and a decent bread pudding. All in, it was an expensive night of bad food in a nice setting. At least we weren't too stuffed for the theater."

"I took a friend to M Restaurant this past Friday, and we had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, and the service was spot on. My associate and I had business to discuss, and asked our server to give us some quiet time before ordering. They were all very considerate of that request, and timed our meal perfectly so we could both enjoy ourselves and discuss business."
