Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews
My husband ordered the Ribeye medium, it came out rare and so tough he couldn't chew it. We had to ask twice for our waiter so we could order desert and more wine. We've been there many times before, the food and service had always been excellent but not this time. Very disappointed.
went to Chateau Morrisette for our ninth wedding anniversary. Very romantic setting overlooking the Appalachians at sunset. It was cold outside so dining out on the terrace was out of the question. They did have a fire burning in the fireplace which added to the ambiance. The service from Lucas was very attentive and professional. The food was outstanding.
This was the 2nd visit to Chateau Morrisette for me and my husband. Our first was an impromptu stop for lunch while riding our motorcycle along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This visit for dinner was to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were not disappointed.
Fires were crackling in the fireplace and soft music was playing as we made the way to our table.
After ordering wine, we started with the special salad for the evening. The combination of flavors was amazing. Spiced nuts, mild goat cheese, and lightly dressed greens were a great beginning. My husband chose Bison and I chose the fish of the day, catfish from North Carolina.
My husband savored every bite of his meal, including the slightly spice jelly pepper glaze (he doesn't usually choose spicy food.) A generous serving of roasted garlic mashed potatoes and side of cooked turnip greens were the perfect combination.
My plate of lightly breaded catfish atop a wonderful risotto was delicious. The light "salad" of thin cucumbers atop the fish added a fresh bite to the dish. The sauce accompanying the fish was light and fresh as well... made me want the recipe.
The service was excellent. We never wanted for anything but were left to enjoy our meal in peace.
Highly recommend Chateau Morrisette for the food and ambiance. It's wonderful year-round, but don't miss the opportunity to take in the beauty of the Blue Ridge Parkway during the warmer months as well.
Of course the very best thing is the dining with a panoramic view of the mountains. The wine is interesting and there are probably enough food choices to accommodate many varied appetites. The arugula salad with poached pears was delicious. The crab cakes were fresh tasting and not too bready. Our service was extremely slow(which is typical of this place so do not go here unless you plan to take it essay. ) Our waiter was a little affected but mostly I think he was trying! We had a great time! It's the only show in town for miles and miles on the parkway. It was very uncrowded in the winter!
We have been here multiple times. This was thr first time our experience was less than stellar. It was our wedding anniversary too. We decided to come a bit early and have a drink at the bar. So eventually the sweet hostess grabbed a lady in a vest from the back office to serve us. I ordered a wine cocktail. At one point I saw her reach into a gallon sized container of cherries with her bare hands and grab cherries for my drink out of there. Twice. I nearly lost my stomach as I watched her then toss each cherry into my drink. To add more suffering to the drink. It was basically oj and pineapple juice. No wine to taste or anything wine cocktail about it.
Food was ok. My husband's steak was full of fat. Half his plate was fatty leftovers. Our ice cream desert was so frozen hard that we had to use forks to stab the cake while the other one struggled a bite off. The service was painfully slow. We had one alcoholic drink the entire dinner. Our waiter was nice and polite but not attentive.
Our poor waitress had to many tables to cover by herself but did a good job under the circumstances. The quality of the food was not good. We had to wait forever to get bread and then it was two little toasted slices-lol. The steak didn't taste like steak because of the quality and the sauce on top of it. The shrimp and grits were swimming in grease. The salads were okay but when you bit into the pickled beet, it bit you back. We did not even want to try the dessert after the meal experience. I am sorry for this review because we love supporting our local businesses but it was not worth the drive, almost two hours. We were very disappointed and wish them well!
We have been dining here for years . We love the atmosphere and the ever changing menu of foods that we would otherwise never get the pleasure of enjoying. The service is friendly and exceptional. The wines are delicious. We always feel special when we dine here, Thankyou!!!
Valentines prix fixe dinner. Choice of three appetizers, entrees and desserts. I had a delightful crab fondue to start, and then seared scallops with crispy ham and blood orange gastrique. To finish, I had beniets with balsamic fig ice cream. Wonderful! We shared a Reserve Chardonnay that was a great accompaniment to the meal. Service was attentive and friendly, and soft music played with a crackling fire in the fireplace. Fresh roses adorned the table. Overall, it was a very romantic and enjoyable evening!
This was our 4th dining experience at chateau morisette. We have always been pleased with hospitality, service, food and overall ambience. We dined for New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day and loved the menu options and have tasted and fallen in love with new wines. We will return whenever possible and tell all our friends
It was a wonderful early Valentines Lunch last Saturday. We took friends there for their first visit and they were very impressed. I had not done a wine tasting in a while and that was very enjoyable and I was able to try some of their new wines. The bartender was very informative and pleasant. I have added a few more of their wines to my favorites. The service at the restaurant was excellent and the food was excellent.
Our dinner was great, the facilities were wonderful, and our birthday celebration was just perfect. The only comment I can make is my ribeye steak had a good flavored but had lots of grissel. Other than that the evening went very well. Thank you'll for a enjoyable evening.
The perfect dinner, on a chilly night in February. Family visiting the VA mountains from out of town. We were seated at a table in front of the fireplace. Wine, appetizers and main courses, especially the bison meatloaf, all delicious. Our server Luke, was especially attentive. A most memorable evening!
We really enjoyed our dinner, dessert and wine! When family, friends and coworkers asked about our anniversary dinner I didn't spare any details about our amazing meal. I wish I had thought to tell the waiter to tell the chef how much we enjoyed our meal.
The waiter and staff were so very nice and accommodating :) gave 3 stars for ambiance because our table was in a cold hallway between the dining room and the lounge/bar area. If it wasn't for it being winter, so naturally it was dark out by dinner time, that I would have loved the view from the hallway overlooking the rolling hills.
Visited Chateau Morrisette winery and restaurant while traveling on our honeymoon. The atmosphere, service, food were all above our expectations and we enjoyed it very much. We requested a table by the fireplace and were gladly seated with no problems. We will definitely return. Thank You!!
After many years of occasional vidit to Chateau Morriset, It was a special treat to bring my daughter who lives in San Antonio. She is used to big distances so the ride from Greesboro was just a delightful outing. And, of course, no visit is complete without taking some Black Dog home to Greensboro.
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.
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 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.
