Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews

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!

Waitress was slow waiting on us, & was haughty & condescending. Food was extremely over-priced for quality. Gnat flying around table during entire meal. We were really looking forward to visiting the restaurant for our anniversary, but very disappointed in overall experience.

My husband and I have been coming here for many years Our son was even married here, and his rehearsal dinner was here. We have never been disappointed. However this was not our experience Saturday. We were very disappointed in our food. Our service was fabulous. It was extremely busy and I hope that was the issue.

A nice weekend drive to a wonderful destination restaurant and winery. We have been coming here for many years for the festivals and the food. I can remember feeding the original black dog potato chips and lunch meat on the front lawn while listening to the relaxing music. Nice to have quality food but not have to dress up for it. Keep up the good work and we will be back again.

The shrimp and grits use to be my favorite ...probably needs something li ke smoked gouda cheese in the grits.....trout was a little bland, prefer the grilled fillet type....thanks for making the fire after we got there...he did a good job...dessert very good, attentive service , lovely setting

My wife and I frequently use this restaurant for special occasions such as birthdays. The drive via the parkway and the view of the mountains from the restaurant is pleasant and the food is very good. Our latest trip was for a birthday lunch, the food was good but the service was not as organized as we have experienced in the past.

Chateau Morrisette is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia near Mabry Mill. The location is beautiful and has some nice long range views of the mountains. We came up to enjoy the fall leaves and to drive the parkway. We had been to Chateau Morrisette before and wanted to come back to enjoy the food and wine. I recommend it and plan to make it a yearly event for my family.

This was a great place to eat for our 17th wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed the food and great wine.We also enjoyed the winery tasting earlier in the day .I would recommend if you haven't been you need to go and enjoy.

The return of a reasonably priced lunch menu is welcomed. This was our first (return) visit after checking out the prior, expensive lunch menu that was incorporated some time after our initial times of eating at this very nice restaurant. We will definitely plan to return to explore other menu items. Our party enjoyed the burger (2), chicken and crab cakes. ALL were yummy - of high quality. Portion sizes were appropriate for the charge.
