Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews

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.

We enjoyed every bite! The chef prepared the food with the winery wines with excellent paring choices with our meal. Our plates were a wonderful presentation of appearance . A breathtaking view while eating our meal at 3446 feet from the Blue Ridge Parkway. A very attentive staff to our request.

Our trip to the Outer Banks was cancelled because of the hurricane...so we decided to ride up Chateau Morrisette for lunch...it was a beautiful October day....leaves were beginning to turn and the day's temperature was just right....our meal in the restaurant was delightful and the service was second to none....our meal was good and as always, the wine was the best!

This was the 3rd year we've chosen CM as a gathering place for 6 friends to meet for lunch. Four of us drove from out of state. Our reservation was for 11:30, which is exactly when we checked in at the desk. Another group of 14 had mistakenly arrived also at 11:30 rather than the 12:30 time they had reserved. Even though we checked in immediately, the large group was seated before us, which did not start things out well. We love the scenery. The food, however, has been less and less satisfactory to us each year and we were disappointed with favorites that had been deleted from the menu. We also had to ask for each water refill. The desserts were probably the best things we had.

This restaurant is not inexpensive. The food was good not excellent. The service was also good but not excellent. We were seated at a table directly in the wait staff's path and the floor vibrated each time someone walked by. They do not serve cocktails just beer and wine. Two of our party are not wine drinkers and were disappointed with the minimal beer selection. Menu choices are somewhat limited but regional so you should check out the menu before going. Lastly I have never been in a restaurant that gave two checks for what they assumed to be two couples without asking first. That struck us all as odd. Will try it again but will definitely request a better table location.

we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, pairing choices of house wines with courses of our meal provided a synergy of flavors and a chance to sample various offerings. the Reserve Chardonnay left its immature sibling in the dust. My wife wished her chicken portion was a little larger, the deliciousness making it just more so. My steak was simply luscious making me wonder if it was coated in butter. the staff was very accommodating. the place made me feel like i'd been transported to the French countryside.

I love the winery and visiting, but I would probably recommend grabbing something simple on the patio of the winery rather than traveling that far for the restaurant. I was disappointed in the type of food offered, expecting something a little more upscale.
Previous visits to the winery have been great. This visit I was trying to determine if a wine that had changed names was the same or if there was a change to the wine itself and one of the staff was less than helpful, acting as if I was trying to pull one over on them. I wasn't going to spend the money on a bottle of wine that I might not like so much and honestly needed help.

We love Chateau Morrisette !!!!!!! We have visited this restaurant regularly for 16 years. The drive for us is about two hours and is well worth the trip. We love the setting in old world styling and architecture. We appreciate restaurant hostess “Maxine” and assistant “Jennean.” They are helpful and ready to assist cheerfully, and the atmosphere throughout was pleasant. The food was great as always, and the wine is superb. Our server “Chris” did a fine job and did not rush us through our dinner and stay at the “Chateau Morrisette” experience. We take these special times to relax and enjoy this time away from the hubbub of daily life.

We love dinning here! Friday evening we celebrated our 40th Anniversary. The wine and food was delivious. Our server,Jennifer, was absolutely delightful.
Hope to visit again soon!(Please tell Jennifer we said "ThankYou" and it was joy to have met her)

We have enjoyed Chateau Morrisette for many years. We always try to go there from our home in Virginia for special occasions. We love the good food, the great service, and the scenic view of the mountains. Thank you for giving us a window table as requested, it really added to my wife's birthday. The waitress we had this time was excellent.

You cannot beat the ambiance if you sit outside or near a window! The crab cakes were delicious- full of crab and not too bready. The mussels were dominated by a prosciutto broth. The french fries and chicken sandwich came out only tepid in temperature. The flat bread was pretty good. the mushroom naan was pretty good as well. We enjoyed our wine selections. If you want to eat on the parkway in this area ,this is the only show in town! Our waitress and one of the hostesses were very pleasant. One of the hostesses bordered on rude! Maybe she was just stressed out! Yes, I would eat here again. We have eaten here many times and the service is always slow and the food about a B level- some really good dishes and some mediocre!

Enjoyed another delightful dining experience at Chateau Morrisette! I had lunch with a friend and enjoyed the food, wine, and whole experience. I along with family and friends have visited and dined at Chateau Morrisette many times. Always an enjoyable time. Thank-you for a great afternoon.
Our server, Gabriel was knowledgeable, attentive and very nice to chat with. One suggestion, please bring back the collard greens! A personal favorite of mine!

This was our first visit, and it was an October 9th birthday celebration. We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant/winery and decided to try it. We made a reservation for 2pm, and arrived a few minutes early, however, we were not seated until 2:20 (even though we had a 2p.m. reservation). When we were taken to our table, we were not pleased at all with the location because one side of the table was pushed against a huge wall mirror. As soon as we sat down, we realized that we were very uncomfortable with having our reflections and every movement reflected literally within a couple of inches from us. There were two other empty tables on either side of where we were seated, so we asked if we could move and were told no because one of them was "Reserved" (which we didn't know was even a possibility), and the other was set up for 4 people, not 2. So we remained seated where we were and tried to not have it spoil the occasion - although within a few minutes, 2 people were seated at the "4 table" that we had just inquired about.
After we decided to "let it go and move on", we ordered appetizers, which were excellent, but very slow to arrive - as was the remainder of the meal. Everything we had was extremely tasty and well presented, but even though we left as soon as our desserts were finished, we were there for over 3 hours from start to finish.
Again, the food was wonderful, the restaurant was charming, and the waiter was very professional, but you need to allow 2-3 hours for a 3 course meal for 2 people, and we will definitely "reserve" a specific table in a more comfortable and appealing location upon revisiting.

We have been long time fans of Cahteau Morrisette. We love the winery, the special musical events and the restaurant. This last visit was for Sunday Brunch. While the service was excellent, we were very disappointed that the restaurant has discontinued the wonderful Sunday Brunch Buffet. While we will be back, it will not be for the Sunday brunch menu.

The meal was delicious and Emily's service was great. However, the four people in my party were disappointed that the Sunday buffet was no longer available. With the buffet no longer available, we may not select Chateau Morrisette as where we will take our friends when they come for a visit.

I have always loved Chateau Morrisette. Love the wine, food is always good and the service is very well executed. I live within a one hour drive and can enjoy the neighboring Mabry Mill at the same time. I recommend it favorably to anyone who has an opportunity to enjoy it. I am looking forward to the Christmas season to experience the parkway and the winery.
