Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews
Visited Chateau Morrisette this past weekend on a mountain weekend getaway from Eastern NC. What a wonderful experience! The winery was fantastic, all the staff so friendly and knowledgeable. The wine tasting was a treat. Loved the Archival and Blue Dog. Dinner was fantastic...so good we went back for Sunday brunch. The waitstaff was top notch. Weather was a bit dreary, so the mountain view was limited. Already looking forward to our return visit.
Menu always exceptional, thought I was going to be disappointed since the Easter brunch wasn't available but one taste of the waffle put a huge smile on my face.
Jennifer was our waitress for our last two visits and she has a Great personality, hope we can get her again in August !!!!
Thank for a Wonderful afternoon !!!!!!!!!!!!!
We went to Chateau Morrisette for Easter lunch. We were seated promptly and our server came over within 5 minutes of our being seated. It was a prixe fixe menu with 3 choices in each category and an ala carte section also. We ordered and were served our appetizers quickly. We waited 45 to 60 minutes though for our main courses. The service from the wait staff was also lacking in being attentive to replenishing drinks and clearing dishes and glasses from the table. When our main course arrived, 3 people had the same dish, lamb shoulder. Two of the plates were servings of similar size and one plate was considerably smaller in the size of the lamb and sides. To be fair, the lamb was cooked and seasoned well. Dessert for two of our guests was very good but two guests ordered the same thing which was very dry. We have visited Chateau Morrisette before and enjoyed our dinner much more than the Easter brunch and perhaps the staff was overcome with the amount of people that attended but for this special occasion, it fell short.
We had dinner last week. we had been to the winery before and had eaten on one occasion previously. it was good and attracted us to return. The location is nice and the view from some tables in the dining room is great. Unfortunately our table was not one of them. It was quiet and service was professional. The menu items we ordered were very good. The appetizer and desert were memorable. Portions of food are substantial. We will return again when in that area.
We had been wanting to take our son-in-law, who grew up in southern Florida, but who loves the mountains to Chateau Morrisette for years. Typically the only time they come up this way is for Christmas and the restaurant is closed. Even though the patio was full they were very accommodating in getting us a table outside overlooking the valley. Good food, awesome view! The weather was perfect!
This was our first trip to the Chateau. We were disappointed in only one issue and that is we were not allowed to view the vineyard. We understood the insurance issues in riding a tram to see it, but we couldn't even walk there ourselves. This would have added so much to the experience of the wine and chateau itself. As for the restaurant, we loved it! It may sound silly, but we especially enjoyed the pickled rhubarb that came with the cheese tray. We thought it might be pickled celery, and was surprised to know it was rhubarb. The entire evening was special and we look forward to returning soon.
Food was wonderful as always but service left a lot to be desired. Ordered unsweet tea and splenda. Was brought 3 packs of splenda in a container with sugar and sweet and low. Had to ask repeatedly for splenda. Very young waiter who will eventually learn to work smart vs hard. If you bring what customers ask for the first time, you will not have to make trip after trip! Multiple times our glasses were empty. A good server will never let your glass get less than half empty.
We are long time customers of Chateau Morrisette sine the 1970's. We looked forward to going to Chateau Morrisette for special occasions and for a special treat occasionally. It used to be great! Now, the quality of the food is less with each visit, the price continues to increase and the service is just okay. When customers make it a destination to go to a restaurant that is miles from nowhere, they come for the experience and they expect it to be great. Otherwise, they will not come.
We would like to see Chateau Morrisette return to being great.
Here are some of the changes over the years that has impacted my review.
Changes to the Kennel Club
Limited inventory of merchandise in the Winery
Lack of maintenance on the buildings and grounds
Decrease in food quality
Limited menu items
Beautiful view, good wines and some excellent small plates (try the little neck clams!). The only downside was the service. A pet peeve with me is that, after seating us, no one ever came to ask for a drink or appetizer order. We had to grab a server, and that is always a non-starter for me. They did rebound however, and the manager swung in and handled our table through the rest of the meal.
The view was incredible. The food was just ok. My husband ordered the ribeye and it was more fat than meat. Pricey meal for not much return. We had to ask for bread. All of the other diners got bread with their salads but didn't have to ask. It was just OK.
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
