Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews

As a longtime patron of Morrisette I was not surprised to find it met my expectations. It's a fine place to dine, to enjoy beautiful views of the Blue Ridge mountains, to relax and enjoy the mountain air. And the food of course is delightful. It's a bit of a drive for me from Winston Salem, NC, but one I fully expect to make again in the future.

Enjoyed our evening dinner. Crab cakes were yummy and scallops and steak were delicious. Wine list was adequate as were the beer selections. The table we were seated at was a bit chilly, but when it was brought to the attention of the wait staff they took care of the vents next to our table. Overall a lovely experience, we would go again.

In the past I have enjoyed Chateau Morristte's food. The atmosphere is great and the view sitting on the terrace is beyond words. On Saturday my wife and I took my mom to celebrate her 70th birthday. For two years we have been telling her how great the food and atmosphere are. I was extremely disappointed in the food on Saturday. I ordered the burger medium well and it was one of the driest burgers I have ever had. My mom and wife both ordered shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits were very tasty but the portion size was very small. In the past, the portions were 2 to 3 times as much. On Saturday, the bottom of the bowl was barely covered. Very disappointed. I usually will speak up but I was not going to and ruin my mom's birthday. We drove from Greensboro, NC and she drove from Fuquay-Varina, NC which is an hour and 30 minutes on the other side of Greensboro. While we enjoyed the overall lunch, the food was a let down.

This was my first visit to Chateau Morissette. I looked forward to celebrating my birthday there. Management and staff were aware this was a special occasion, and conveyed birthday wishes numerous times during our luncheon. The ambience is charming. The service was excellent. The wine was palatable. The food was under seasoned and overpriced. I am sorry we were so disappointed because we love vacationing in the area and planned to make this a regular stop.

Service was quite slow and the bill, when presented, included an item not ordered. My food was just OK, while my wife's was quite good. I have had better experiences here in the past, but Sunday, Sept. 18 was not a positive experience.

My wife and I visited Chateau Morrisette for the first time as part of our 28 wedding anniversary. Our reservation was at 7pm. We were seated outside on the patio for a good view of the sunset. The sunset was great. Once the sun went down it started getting dark fast and that's where things started going bad. They seemed unprepared for this as they had to rush to install lights or set up candles on everyone's tables. We were not offered either. Every table around us was approached and given either LED lights that attached to the umbrella or a candle on the table, except ours. We had to eat in the dark. We both ordered the steak and it was good. However, the brussel sprouts were dry. Our waiter only visited us a few times and never once refilled our drinks. We decided to skip dessert, paid and left. If you are looking for a good view and wine this is the place. If you are looking for good service maybe not.

The winery has special events but we like the fact it's beside the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is an excellent place to enjoy scenic views during dining while having a glass of their wine. The fall colors and winery itself are excellent views in autumn.

Excellent food and service. We sat outside on the balcony on Labor Day. Our table had an umbrella to shield us from the sun and a beautiful view of the mountains. We ordered the Cabernet and the wine was very good. Wonderful experience!!!

forgot us after we checked in. Finally seated and we were never waited on. After 30 minutes told hostess. Manager came out apologized took our order and gave us a glass of wine. Still was not assigned a waiter. Had to ask for water. Food was good but service was terrible. Did not even leave a tip because we did not have anyone to tip. Not a good experience at all.

We came for the brunch buffet which we had thoroughly enjoyed on previous occasions but found that was no longer offered so ordered from the menu. The Wild Mushroom Flatbread and salads were tasty but the service was horrendous. Traveling 50 miles each way for something we can get much closer to home wasn't worth the ambiance.

My wife and I frequent the Morrisette Restaurant for birthdays and anniversaries. We enjoy the 85 mile scenic drive and the views from the restaurant and the food has always been good. This trip the food was average for the price and the service was slow and the crab cakes were cold. This is an exception for us and we are looking forward to going back.

My family always loves to go to Chateau Morrissette. The view is beautiful and the food delicious. There are always great new dishes to try. We had a delightful waiter. He was very knowledgeable about the food and wine. We like Chateau Morrissette wines and it is nice to have a good wine with a meal and not spend a fortune on a wine you can purchase at Kroger.

We celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary that weekend. We stayed at a bed and breakfast, hiked at Smart View and Buffalo Mountain, had a lunch and two dinner evenings, wine tour and tasting at Chateau Morrisette which was the center piece of our weekend. You gave us a gift of a bottle of your best wine. We enjoyed every aspect of our experience and look forward to an occasion we can do this again. Thank you very much.

We have eaten at Chateau Morrisette for lunch many times over the years as we drive up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have not had dinner here, however. We were not disappointed. Their new chef has created many wonderful dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. The shrimp and grits were wonderful with a touch of spice from the andouille sausage. The pork chop dish that my husband had was done to perfection. The pork was paired with apples and Swiss chard that had a wonderful smoky flavor. In addition, we had the Vidal Blanc wine with our meal. We took our waitress's suggestion for dessert and had the warm brownie bursting with blueberries, topped with a cold chocolate pudding. Very rich, but just the right amount to top off our delicious dinner. We are never disappointed in the food at CM and will be back for more meals.

We were there a couple years ago for dinner and loved the restaurant, wine and food. Booked this past Sunday for our anniversary, but found out when we got there they only served brunch on Sunday. Sorely disappointed with this and with the brunch food in general. Also found out that they no longer carry the Pinot Noir that we absolutely loved. A long drive ( 2.5 hours) for a disappointment. Please serve a full menu on Sunday, as it is the only free time a lot of people have!

Another wonderful dinner and more. The food dishes are creative and could fill any desire - steak, seafood, chicken, veggies - and this time lamb. This is one of our favorite romantic places to go for nice dinner and good wine. Save room for desert and a sweet wine. We dined on the patio which got a little dark because the candles wouldn't stay lit. We ate desert by the light of the smart phone flashlight. Another new experience.

Room where we were seated was noisy and we had a large boisterous group beside us. We could not hear our waiter. Also we asked to be seated outdoors but we were told no seating was available. We could see multiple outdoor tables empty during our meal. Last, dinner was expensive and considering our overall experience-not worth the price.

My wife and I dine here often. The food is excellent, and the service is 5 stars (thank you to Luke!). We enjoy our visits to the winery, and we really look forward to our time at the restaurant whether it be brunch, lunch, or dinner. Kudos to Chef Cooper and the entire staff!

Excellent food. Fantastic views. Quiet enough for conversation. Service excellent except for the interruption precipitated by an outside umbrella that fell. Desserts were wonderful. I highly recommend Chateau Morrisette for special occasions, an intimate get together or small groups. Outside dining is to be desired...unless the temperature is in the upper 80's or higher.
