Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I have visited often over the years but it has been a while since our last visit. It's about an hour's drive for us. Since we go from about 600 feet above sea level to more than 3,400 above, it's a great way to cool down and enjoy outdoor dining.

We visited on our anniversary on a Sunday afternoon. It was hot at home but perfect in the mountains, and we toured the winery (free, fascinating entire operation is under timberframe), did a wine tasting, sat in a gazebo overlooking mountains sipping wine with live music, walked around the gardens, and then got brunch on the restaurant deck. This place is worth 5 hours round trip travel. The food was memorable in its own right. The cheese plate introduced us to Thomme cheese, a new favorite. The server knew the origin of every item. We could hear the music in the background from the restaurant deck and it is was a perfect anniversary date destination.

Service was great as well as the view. Sadly, I had one of the worst steaks ever eaten in a high end restaurant. It was a 'Strip' steak, and was nothing but tough and full of gristle. I did let them know, and they simply said 'Sorry'. I may do lunch, but no more dinners.

3 of us ordered the trout which was satisfactory but not outstanding. One of our party ordered the herbed chicken. She said it was the worst meal she had had during her whole 3 week vacation here with us in the US (and it was the most expensive). It was barely cooked through, looked unappetizing and came with fava beans that were hard and tasteless. The service and the ambiance were good.
Overall, we drove a long way (90 minutes) for a below average meal at an above average price.
We did enjoy the wine tour and tasting that we took part in before our meal.

Chateau Morrisette is a Virginia gem located south of Floyd VA off the Blue Ridge Parkway. An exceptionally well developed vineyard and fine tasting bar is complemented by a very well executed dining experience. While being less than 20 years old, the Chateau provides an ambiance which is very old world in style and feel, with well established gardens and a nice balance of indoor and outdoor scenery, all in a very comfortable environment. The staff are knowledgeable, polite and prompt. The wine selection has developed nicely over the years and is among the finest you will find anywhere on the east coast. Consider a trip - you will be not be disappointed!

We met up with a former co-worker and her friend for Sunday brunch at Chateau Morrisette. The guys ordered more traditional breakfast fare (eggs, bacon, fried potatoes) and declared it very good. My friend and I ordered the spinach and crab quiche with a side cup of tomato bisque. The bisque tasted so fresh and delicious - I wish I had ordered a big bowl of that and skipped the quiche, which was just okay. The coffee was fresh, strong, and good.
The waiter had two or three other tables going, including one large group - he was friendly and tried to be attentive, but service overall was on the slow side. Not to worry - this isn't a place to go when you are tight on time!
The best part of the whole experience was that, after brunch, we went down to winery for wine tasting and to listen to the live jazz trio performing on the plaza. All in all, a nice outing to a lovely place.

Our experiences before have been wonderful, but this time not so much. The food was spectacular as usual, but the arrival and initial seating left something to be desired. The hostess took us to two different areas of the restaurant trying to find a table for us. It was like "we don't know what to do with you". We had decided to take our adult sons, daughter-in-law, and 2 grandchildren for a nice dinner to celebrate our 30th anniversary (no recognition even though I in my reservation). Pets seem to be welcomed,but I think Chateau Morrisette does not welcome children. That is the impression I was given. The wait staff are usually very friendly, but the waiter was not to the usual reputation. Yes we will probably return, but it will be a little while.

Chateau Morrisette is one of my all time favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious weather you have a BLT or the shrimp and grits! Always great wine and because the winery is right there the price is the same as the winery. The service is also superb!

We love Chateau Morrisette very much but his visit was not very good. We waited on our food for almost 1 1/2 hours. The groups on the veranda were served and finished before our food arrived in the dining room area. Our server was great but it appears the kitchen was over whelmed on this visit. Better planning was needed on this date by all involved at the restaurant.

We always enjoy dinning at Chateau Morsett. Nice drive on the Blue Ridge to get there from Roanoke.
However. So sorry the chef removed the best meal of all from the menu...the philly steak and cheese. Please put it back on the menu. Chefs tend to appeal to themselves rather than their clients.

We arrived around 5pm on a Sunday. Buffet had been open since mid morning and we were probably the last ones to arrive. Some of the food trays were not particularly attractive at this point. Buffet tables were spattered from spilled food. Service and ambiance were outstanding.

As always, our "Father's Day" brunch was really good. Since we drive over two hours to reach the destination, we always look forward to good food, good service and a fantastic setting. The fact that we could take our furry friend (Fes, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) made our experience even more enjoyable.

Our waitress, Eva, was excellent, knew a lot about the wines and was warm and friendly.
Love the fact you can take your dog!
Large variety of foods on the buffet and all were excellent. After your meal you can walk the grounds and view the winery and gift shop.
A wonderful afternoon.

The buffet was excellent and up to the standards we are accustomed to. We are hoping that they will continue the special occasion buffets again next year. We suggest you give consideration to having the buffet during the fall foliage season. Our guest thoroughly enjoyed it also.

We have been to Chateau Morrisette many times but this was not one of our better visits. The steak did not have the flavor we expected when we paid this much money and the brussel sprouts were tough. However,we have had many good dinners here in the past. Since this was our anniversary dinner, it was disappointing.

Chateau Morissette is one of our special places. We don't get there as often as we'd like because it is nearly a two-hour drive from our house. The menu varies but is always excellent. They offer suggested pairings of wine with the meals and if you like the wine they suggest you can walk across the parking lot to the winery and buy some. They also do tastings in the winery so you can start there find a wine you like then go to the restaurant and they will serve you a glass of the wine you just tasted with your meal. All while enjoying the view of the winery and the Blue Ridge mountains. The location, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway indicates that the setting will be beautiful and it is. It's also a great place for a wedding and/or wedding reception, which is how we found it to begin with. Have fun, we always do!
Dining al fresco at its best!
We love Chateau Morrisette and have been coming here for years. We love the food, the outdoor patio and the winery. The patio was perfect - sunny with a light breeze and great temperatures. The umbrella on the table protected us from too much sun exposure. Our waiter was attentive and gave us the scoop on the best dishes. The menus pairs wines with your selection(s). We even had the restaurant manager come by and ask us how we enjoyed our meal. We would highly recommend this restaurant. After your meal you can do a wine tasting at the winery, drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway or just head straight home.

We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was elegant, the food sumptuous, the service gracious and attentive, and the ambience of the sun setting over the mountains in the distance combined for an awesome, unforgettable experience.
Lacking a soul
Years ago, Chateau Morrisette was a vibrant, lively, interesting, fun place that people looked forward to visiting. After this last visit, we would not refer any friends to the winery or restaurant. While most of the staff were friendly, no one seemed to have passion or seemed to enjoy their job. I am sure it is not their fault. There was no life to the experience. No background music in the restaurant nor in the tasting room. It was a very cold atmosphere. We will not return.
