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.

My wife's Japanese steak was awful being the most expensive steak on the menu you expect excellent meat.

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!

Food was OK but not as good as anticipated. First visit to Morrisette and, based on the outside appearance, expectations for food were higher. Service was excellent.

We arrived quite a bit earlier than our reservation and were seated promptly. The food and service were outstanding. We dined on the deck and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and time there.
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.

Chicken salad croissant roll was stale and burned. The chicken salad chunks were HUGE! Not cut up enough to call it chicken salad. I'm usually a fan of it there, not this day!
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.
Delicious food in a beautiful setting
We popped in on a whim while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and could not have been more pleased. The food and wine were excellent, as was the service.

The food was very good but the service staff was stretched and thus a little slow
Over priced,horribly cooked food.I was looking forward to a nice dinner out...the wine tastings were awesome,but dinner in the restaurant?Pretty bad.steak overcooked and grisly,potatoes dry,chicken dry...all around bad!
Well worth the drive from Charlotte. Lovely setting and the lunch menu provided a variety of options. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Great for lunch. View spectacular. Server knowledgeable about wines and very professional without being pretentious! Had lump crabcakes and wife had turkey sandwich. Both delicious and paired well with their chardonay!W
Our afternoon drive ended with a visit to the tasting room and winery tour, and as the day came to a close we walked up to the beautiful dining room which was both elegant and casual. The views from every window were breathtaking, and we knew dining on the deck would also be a wonderful event- unfortunately it had been a bit wet earlier preventing that experience. Each member of our party tried a different selection from salads, as well as the main course. We had the chance to sample amazing perfectly cooked tender waygu beef, the vegetarian quinoa and vegetables, as well as beautifully seasoned and presented trout with vegetables. Of course we had sampled wine in the tasting room and each came to dinner with an idea of the perfect wine to accompany the meal of choice. All and all a lovely evening and although a bit pricey the prep and freshness merited the little extra. The tables are set far enough apart and with angles to allow every diner a view of the hills and valleys beyond and the service was comfortably paced.
A Delightful Evening!
What an enjoyable evening at Chateau Morrisette!! We took friends who had never been there and they so enjoyed it! The food was delicious and prepared to perfection. We will return as it has become one of our favorites outside of Roanoke!
Very thick FOG!
Had the weather in May been more cooperative, our experience would have been what people told us about this winery; however, we can't control the weather. Our waitress (Emily) was excellent and very pleasant. The lunch dishes we chose were delicious (I had the quiche.). The restaurant and the winery buildings are beautiful. Our table was by a wall ; however, with the thick fog there wasn't any scenic view to miss. The winery tour, tasting, and lunch made a very enjoyable day. If we are ever traveling or staying in the area again, we definitely will return (on sunny day!) and request outdoor or window seating.

OVERALL a very nice place, price however is high for what you get.I have eaten at nicer places(Berryhill Resort) for less. But the food was very good.
We have been coming for Sunday Brunch for many years and we were very disappointed this time. Missing from the selection were pancakes, waffles, ham and prime rib, yet the price was increased. We do not object to the price increase, but that increase comes with expectations that were not met. On the plus side, the dessert table was much improved over last years rice Krispy treats.

We love Chateau Morrisette. Saturday night the wait staff was stretched pretty thinly, but we blamed that on it being Tech graduation weekend and prom for a local high school. Our friends, who are from out of state enjoyed it very much. My favorite way to experience Chateau Morrisette is to go on a weekday when the weather is beautiful and warm, and have a long, long lunch with lots of wine. It feels like playing hooky.....but in a good way! We always enjoy the food and the gorgeous views. Keep up the good work!

My daughter and I celebrated her birthday at Chateau Morrisette. It was a beautiful day, and we were offered a table outside. Suddenly the weather changed, and it started raining. Our waitress immediately moved us to a table inside by the window. The food, service, and ambiance were excellent.

Absolutely wonderful meal! Me and my wife ate the sirloin and the pasta and clams and it was magnificent. The view from our table was a perfect addition as we watched the sunset. Can't wait to come back!
