Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews
We heard that there was a new chef at the Chateau so we thought that we would give it another try. It started out fabulously with a delicious spinach salad that we shared. It was excellent. The blue cheese was just bitey enough to offset the sweetness in the vinaigrette. My husband's porkchop was also excellent. My crab cake was horrible. There was a herb in the mix that completely overpowered the crab. I could barely eat it. The dessert of blueberry turnovers was good. The service throughout the evening was terrible. We waited over an hour for our entrees. We had to request bread and then were given 2 pieces that looked like an end that had been cut in half. The waiter told us that the kitchen was backed up due to large parties but the largest group we saw was a table of 6. The hostess came to the table to ask how everything was. When we told her she immediately discounted our bill. I am still am not sure that we will return.
The food is usually always excellent. On this occasion our party had to wait for nearly an hour for our entrees to be served when it appeared that there were few tables occupied. One entrée (tuna) was cold. By prior arrangement, the dessert was to have had a lighted candle. There was none. When questioned, the server said it should have been requested in advance. Only then did she remove the dessert to return a few minutes later. While this wasn't up to the Chateau's usual performance, we do hope to return another time.
First time eating at Chateau Morrisette; previously been there for a wine tasting and for Sunday music. Saturday late afternoon reservation, my husband and I and dog on the lovely outside deck. Bottle of Nouveau Chien to start. Being a vegetarian, I had already checked out the menu online and knew there were options. The vegetarian burger was the best I have ever eaten. Brian, not a vegetarian, was very happy with his choice as well. Friends and family are visiting soon and we will be back!
A destination worthy of the journey knowing the journey is part of the fun since it includes a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway depending on your choice of route and starting point. Outdoor seating on the veranda was very nice on a nice summer day with a lovely view of the rolling Virginia hills and mountains. Wine by the glass from the vineyard were also very nice and complimented the food well. Service was great, friendly, and timely in delivery. Food was well prepared and quite flavorful with unique selections of fresh local farm ingredients and parings.
Highly recommended. Be sure to check the scheduled times for lunch and dinner as they are limited to a few days and nights.
We celebrated a friend's birthday with Sunday brunch. We had the (not your mama's!) Steak and Eggs and Crab Benedict. Both were creative, well-prepared and DELICIOUS! We sat outside on the patio and of course the view was stunning. Anytime you are on the parkway and get a chance to dine here, please do!
Wonderful experience. I've been 5 times total but hadn't visited in nearly 15 years due to moving out of state. My husband and I went back for our anniversary and we were both astounded by the growth of the winery and events. The authenticity and integrity of the restaurant has been sustained through the Chateau's growth as well as the other components of the winery (wine, events, food, landscape, food). We'll enthusiastically be back!
The shrimp and grits missed our expectations. It was not tasty. Also portions was too small. This was our favorite dish the way it was prepared prior to the past 2 years. The turkey sandwich was a disappointment. The menu described it as shaved turkey but it looked and tasted like a processed turkey sandwich meat. It was not tasty . The Hamburger was good. The dessert was very good. The wine was excellent.
We have been dining at Chateau Morrisette for over 20 years and have experienced a decline in both the food choices and quality as well as the service in the last 2 years.
Two couples went for lunch to help celebrate three birthdays. The new chef is wonderful and the food was as good as or better than ever. We ate outside on the terrace and the weather and the view were outstanding.
We were helped by Ben and Julie. Julie was knowledgable about the menu and helped us make good selections, including the wine.
Our group especially enjoyed the lamb meatloaf sandwich and the blueberry tart for dessert.
We visited here for our 6 year wedding anniversary for Sunday brunch. I ordered the french toast and my husband ordered the biscuits and gravy. Both were absolutely delish, however the portions where HUGE! Had we been expecting the large portions, we would have decided against the flatbread as an appetizer (which I should mention was amazing). Bring your appetite!
Food was excellent as always - only one suggestion; the wedge salad was definitely not an entrée sized salad. Had we not also ordered an appetizer, I would've left hungry. I have no quibble with the prices of the food; I think it's reasonable for the quality - except for that one item. It was a very small salad and not a $12 entrée salad. Maybe a $7 side salad. But in all the years I have eaten at Chateau Morrisette, that is the only complaint I have had, and that's a small one.
This was our first visit (despite living in the area for over a decade!) and we brought our parents who were visiting from out of state. We were there for Sunday brunch, and the menu offered plenty of great choices. Our server suggested signature drinks featuring Chateau Morrisette wines, and the menu itself suggested pairings with each food selection. Ingredients are locally sourced (including an on-site kitchen garden) as were the cheeses and breads. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back.
My niece was in town and had never been to the winery or restaurant so I took her and her friend to lunch and a tasting. They wanted to sit outside and halfway through our appetizer it started to rain. We were moved to an inside table with a beautiful view. New items on the menu to choose from. Who knew beet and goat cheese risotto could taste so good. The grilled vegetables were amazing. The manager on duty made sure we were happy with our seat inside and our server Javier was attentive but also gave us just enough space to enjoy our 'catch up' lunch. Probably the best part was the new dessert menu. We split the lemon/blueberry tart? and the cream brulee was to die for.
We have dined many times at Chateau Morrisette and always find the drive worthwhile. Prefer seating outdoors for the wonderful mountain view, but raining this time thwarted that !!
Menu is diverse and lots of local flavors, meats, veggies, etc. "Mountain to Table" is an apt description.
Takes some effort to drive up Blue Ridge Parkway to get to CM....but worth it !!
We met friends from NC at Chateau Morrisette last night for supper. We drove an hour and they drove nearly two hours to get there. We have had slow service there before, but this was beyond slow. Our waiter was sullen, not outright nasty, but unfriendly and seemed to be unhappy. As a former waitress, I find this inexcusable. You have to be able to set aside your personal problems to provide a good experience to your customers. He barely made eye contact and was hard to catch to ask questions or ask for assistance. We could tell he was busy, but this was more than being rushed and the restaurant did not appear to be that full. It often seemed like he was dodging us. More than once I saw him look at me and quickly turn away when I started to talk or signal him. We had to get up from the table more than once to find him to ask for things as basic as salt. It was nearly an hour after our order was taken before we got our meal, which we finally had to ask for. At no point during this time period did anyone come to tell us what the hold up was or to apologize, though we did see someone who identified herself as a manager go to a table nearby where she appeared to know someone. We overheard her say something about the quail being the reason their food was slow as well. We also had quail, so it would have been good customer service for someone to tell us, too. The adjoining table came in just a few minutes after us, but they were just getting their food as we were finishing ours. Our food was good, but not worth the wait or the price or the sullen service. I will think twice before eating there again and I doubt our friends ever will. So sad, as the views are beautiful and the area is depressed enough that they need the business.
The view and food were fabulous. We were able to sit outside on the deck and have lunch. The pulled pork sandwich and grilled vegetables were delicious as was the burger and fries. We shared the blueberry tart and thought it was a fabulous finish to our lunch.
After having given up on CM over a year ago because of slow/poor service, inconsistent meals which were over priced and frequent changes in staff and menu, we decided to give it one more chance and had lunch on our 57th anniv. The food is still on the pricey side, but the service was great with Julie, which is a very significant improvement in the overall dinning experience. Therefore, we will try it again and request one of Julie's tables.
This was our first visit to Chateau Morisette. We were seated outside as the temperature was perfect on this day that was hot in the NC Triad. The drive to CM is beautiful, and the scenery from the patio is stunning.
Our server was excellent. She recommended the Halibut special, and it was perfect. We consider ourselves to be somewhat of "wine snobs", so we're pleasantly surprised at the Reserve Chardonnay. We stayed for live music on this Sunday afternoon, which capped off a wonderful visit to Chateau Morisette.
Had friends in from out of town and wanted a nice place to eat and share a gorgeous view. Also, it was our dog's 10th birthday and Chateau Morrisette is dog friendly so we loaded up two friends and three dogs and went to lunch. Great view, delicious food and our server Jennifer was the best! The go to place when friends and family visit. Also, the girls went to the tasting and found some great buys on wines and merchandise.
