Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews

This was the first day for the new winter menu. We had been there several weeks prior for lunch and absolutely loved the filet mignon and veggies. My husband had the shrimp and grits this time. The shrimp was absolutely delicious. My sister had the pimento cheese burger and devoured it. I had the bison meatloaf. The potatoes and collards were incredible. If you order dessert, get the lemon macaroon....the three of us shared it and was just enough. Incredible. Will definitely go back again and again. It started snowing while we were there and that made for an even more memorable experience.

The setting and wine were excellent. The entre was very good, but the caesar salad was a great disappointment. Service was slow but good for the occasion. Our server was most accomodating. I will go back, but will avoid salads in the future.

They were having a bad day, since a couple of employees called off and the remaining staff were either inexperienced and/or panicked. We checked in 10 minutes ahead of our reservation time. A half hour later (went back to desk to check - and she said she didn't know we were here!) we were seated. After 50 minutes, we had ice water and finally were able to place our order. Begged a worker for bread or something - they brought some bread. An hour and 15 minutes after checking in, we finally received our order - and a complementary cup of coffee. The burger was excellent - up to standards (not our first time here - but may be our last). The quiche, which here to fore had been some of the best my spouse has ever had - multiple times - was good, but not noteworthy. All in all, our anniversary lunch was memorable -- but not in a good sense. Perhaps we should call ahead next time - if there is one - to see if they are fully staffed. Wish I could have written a more complementary post, but there were few positives to describe.

We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The hostess, waiter and manager were kind and attentive. The food was presented well and had a pleasing flavor. We anticipate a return visit when we are in the area again.

We stopped by to end a weekend getaway to the mountains and could not have been more pleased. Both my husband and I are what you might consider "foodies" and are always searching for unique and delightful dining experiences, and I can honestly say that Chateau Morissette is at the top of our list. This was, by far, one of the best meals I have ever had. The chef is simply fantastic! The ambiance was also quite pleasing, and the staff were all so charming and attentive. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you so much for a wonderful dining experience!

I had planned ahead of time with the manager to do an engagement proposal during the meal. This included having the waiter present a special menu board which I had prepared. Everyone concerned did a fantastic job including the waiter who did a great job of presenting the menu, the hostess who sat us in a special table in a quieter area, and the servers who took pictures. I had no doubt this was how I wanted to do this proposal and the staff there were fantastic ahead of time and at the time. Did I mention that the food was absolutely wonderful ... again. Really is a favorite place of ours. No two experiences have been the same and they have all been wonderful in their own ways.

I've waited almost a week to write this review. I was hoping that my disappointment was simply because this was for a special birthday getaway. Unfortunately, the feeling persists. First, let me say, the building is beautiful. The fireplace in our dining room was perfect. Our waiter was simply the best! The wine was delish . Our appetizer was scrumptious. If this had been an afternoon wine and cheese, it would have been absolutely perfect. Unfortunately, we arrived hungry and looking forward to a wonderful meal. We both ordered the New York Strip Medium Rare which came with red beans and broccoli rabe. The broccoli rabe was perfect. The beans were undercooked. The steak was well done and not edible. We had to send it back. When our plates returned, the steak was cooked correctly but the cut of meat was so grisly, it was still nearly inedible. The same broccoli rabe and beans were returned to us - only had been reheated under the salamander - and were now shriveled and somewhat charred. I generally expect that such an establishment has access to much better cuts of beef, especially considering the price. Certainly, more care can be given to side dishes that are returned to the customer. That said, we were complimented with a second round of drinks while we waited for our steaks to be recooked. The manager who came by our table was very nice - but overall, I am disappointed and I don't think we will be back.

This is a great special occasion restaurant! We had the scallop appetizer which was tasty. I had the steak, which was good, but overpriced. My husband had the shrimp and grits which was very good. For dessert we had shared sweet potato and apple pie with butter pecan ice cream which was delicious! Don't forget the wine! I attended a free tasting before dinner and really enjoyed all the dry whites and reds.

My wife and I had dinner at the Restaurant following a fun tasting at the Tasting Room that was festively decorated for the Holidays. The Restaurant was cozy and we had a view of a nice fire in the fireplace that was well tended by the staff. Our waitress was pleasant, friendly and attentive during our dining experience. The crab cakes and pork dishes were delicious and filling. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves very much and will return soon.

We had the best time! The wine tasting was fun and the wine was amazing. We went to the restaurant after the tasting for lunch and the food was top notch. Our waitress, Emily, was amazing too! We can't wait to go back and bring friends.

We had a wonderful experience and a big thanks to Luke for the hospitality and great service he provided... The only complaint we had was the children and noise that they were providing while we were dining..Maybe a separate room for them...and don't get us wrong we love children they just need to know how to behave in a restaurant like this... we will be back... thanks again for the wonderful time...

I've been dining at Chateau Morrisette for many years. It's a bit of a drive from where I live, but always worth it. Great, friendly staff, excellent wine selection and top-notch gourmet food...all set in a historic winery setting.

The potato soup was warm and inviting and a great way to begin a meal. The shrimp and grits was amazing: flavorful and cooked to perfect texture. The duck, however was almost worth returning to the kitchen. It was a leg: the dark, moist meat usually, except this was the texture of extra chewy undercooked pulled pork served on bland black rice and underseasoned roasted root vegetables with an unbalanced spicy "kimchi" and some sort of sour sauce on top. The flavors were either very loud or absent and did not harmonize well together. I sent feedback to the chef and they said they will be reexamining the way they prepare the duck, which is nice to hear, but I wish they had found a way to make up for the bad experience.

Always love Chateau however I do wish they offered more soup choices. They only had rabbit something as I blanked out when he said rabbit. The thought of eating thumper is just horrible! I realize some love it and that's ok but for those of us who don't, it would have been nice to have other soup options on a cold day.
Meatloaf was amazing and I was hesitant to order it thinking it would be full of peppers and onions. I was pleasantly surprised!

We visit chateau morrisette a several times a year. We are always pleased with our visits as everyone is very helpful and friendly. And the food is very good. We have recommended the visit and winery to many of our friends who have also enjoyed their visits

We went for Sunday brunch and the food was outstanding. The dishes are paired with the appropriate wine. I had the French toast with the blackberry wine. My husband had the biscuits with sausage and crawfish gravy and 2 eggs on top. We will definitely go back to try something else.

We had been to the chateau for sunday brunch which I has sorry to hear they dont do anymore.
We enjoyed the view and atmosphere the setting is great. We did reserve a table for 2 and was seated at a table with a mirror on the wall. It made me feel everyone could see us and this made the evening less intimate. The food and service was good in general but I don't feel I would drive the distance just to dine here. The brunch was different it was great and I would make the trip for it if they still had it.

Chateau Morisette is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and has spectacular views of the southern Virginia mountains. We had an early dinner on our way into Floyd, VA for the Friday night bluegrass session at the Floyd Country Store. My spouse and I were most pleased with all aspects of our dining experience -- the ambiance and views, the service, all courses of our meal, from appetizers to dessert, and, of course, the wine. We especially enjoyed the crab cakes, the trout, and the pan seared scallops.

The restaurant has an excellent menu selection for lunch. The crab cakes were delicious and enough for two to share for an appetizer. We had a 1:00 reservation and arrived about 25 minutes early. They told us they would seat us as soon as possible.
There was a business luncheon and apparently the servers were a little overwhelmed. Even though there were numerous empty tables we were seated at 1:05. We did not receive our drink order until 1:30. They did apologize and said they were adjusting servers to help catch up. It would have been nice to have our bottle of wine to sip while we waited.
We both enjoyed our sandwiches and the soup was perfect as a side. Although we were a little underwhelmed by the initial service our waiter was very attentive after our food arrived.

Normally Chateau Morrisette is a restaurant that is one of our favorites. However, over the past year, is continues to be disappointing. The ambiance is fantastic, lovely location, beautiful facility. The service is generally quite good but our last experience the service was lacking primarily because the servers were overworked having to handle more customers than reasonable. The biggest disappointment was the food. We may try the restaurant again but it definitely has lost its past appeal.

Chateau Morrisette is by far the best winery and restaurant I've been to. We were greeted promptly by genuine and courteous staff. We were seated quickly, for a party of 9, and began to look over our options. Our waitress came and was thorough in answering questions and providing options. We ordered a variety of their breakfast entrees, I had their biscuits and gravy. Their food was delicious, as expected. I highly recommend Chateau, it is definitely worth the drive and we will be back!
