Chateau Morrisette Ratings and Reviews
My wife and my granddaughter had the shrimp and grits and they were pleased with their meals. Personally, I think $22.00 for six shrimp and a few grits is a little too expensive. I had the lamb and mushroom omelet with a cup of soup, and neither were remarkable. Both were bland and the quantity of the soup was skimpy. Service I'd rate as average and our waitress was not particularly friendly. This is the forth or fifth time we have eaten here, but my first review. We have a place there in VA but live elsewhere.
We have frequented here several years for our anniversary and love this area. I ordered the vegetarian risotto which was delicious, just a very small portion for the $28. My husband ordered the pork chop which was HUGE and he was very happy with the preparation.
The food was superb and I would say some of the best lunchtime food we have ever eaten.
The service by the server was fantastic.
We were fortunate that we had time, however, when we arrived we found that they were telling people without reservations that the wait was one to one and a half hours. We asked if we could sit outside and were told it was full. Fortunately we had a reservation and after 15 mins were shown to our interior table. To our surprised only half the tables were oppupied inside and out.
We heard the table next to us complain about the length of time it took their order to arrive. Our food also took a very longtime. As I said we were happy to take our time. But, they have a problem somewhere. We heard kitchen to small, a party of 14 got us behind, etc etc.
This restaurant food quality was superb, the table server was fantastic but they have a problem they need to fix.
We had reservations for 2PM and got in about 2:15. The server was super nice, but timing was lacking. It was about 10 minutes after being seated before a server came to our table. We heard the front desk turning people away that didn't have reservations, but there were many empty tables.
One family of 4 that came in before us, didn't get their food until WAY after we did.
2 tables that came in after us, were served before us. They had sandwiches, we had sandwiches, so it wasn't what we ordered.
We also observed a table of 2 be seated by us and it took about 15 minutes before a server came to their table. They were getting frustrated.
Love the winery, but not sure what was going on at the restaurant.
Normally we have a delicious lunch at Chateau Morisette. This time we found the food not very good. Both vegetarian dishes were underseasoned and quite plain. The lamb meatloaf was very salty. Our only other disappointment was the restaurant was out of Chateau Morisettes Cabernet Sauvignon...we were told unapologetically that we could go purchase it at the winery. They did not offer to assist us in any way.
We sat outside and it was a beautiful fall day! You can not beat the view. We hope the food improves on our next visit.
The whole experience was amazing! My kids got me the package deal and it was wonderful. Food was delicious, both lunch and dinner! Staff was awesome as well. Our wine tasting was fabulous. The only complaint I have is that it's too far away!! I want to go every weekend!! Thanks for my amazing birthday experience!
I was disappointed with the limited choices for brunch. I had a hard time deciding what to get. The service was great (quite, neat) and our waitress was very nice. The recommended pairing was right on par. But the scenic views cannot be beat. It was a very relaxed and happy environment with people out to enjoy their day. Great place to spend a chill Sunday afternoon with a bottle of Blue Dog, some sunshine and live music.
The food was top-notch....menu was not the most creative but the food was very good.
The service was where they lacked......we had a reservation yet waited to be seated without being greeted for a good 5 minutes, and they were not busy. Bartenders at the adjacent bar area saw us and ignored us. When the hostess arrived she seemed slightly irritated.Our waitress was fine, no complaints with her. Overall we felt that for such a nice place the staff should have been more welcoming and polished. I would go back but if I don't notice a marked improvement in the staff it will be my last visit.
Much better greeting this time! The last two times we visited Chateau Morrisette, the visit was wonderful with the exception of a rude host once and a rude hostess the next. They both also seated us the farthest away and we had an 85 year old woman who could not walk far. I had requested close seating because of this the first time, and we decided to get a transport chair for future visits. Even so, we were still taken to the furthest corner in a noisy room the second time. (Other reviews explain the circumstances in detail.) The servers and food were delicious so overall we were happy with the exception of our hosts.
This visit was was wonderful. In spite of the fact that two weddings were being held while we were there, this was our smoothest visit. We were seated immediately, close by, and the hostess watched for our 3rd person who was parking the car--something no one else had offered to do and on much slower days.
The server was super friendly and helpful. She (Julie, I think?) made helpful suggestions and apologized for the wait on our food (which we hadn't noticed). The food was amazing!!!!! That is the best meal I had eaten there in the last year. We had dessert and coffee too. Overall, it was the best visit in a long time. Considering they also were holding and catering two weddings that day, this is even more incredible.
Kudos to everyone!
The only reason I said the restaurant was moderately noises was because we were seated near the room on the end that was having a wedding reception. The noise did not bother my group at all. In fact, it enhanced our experience. It was a fun group and they even invited us in for a dance!
CM has always been one of my favorite places to eat, and drink wine, of course. It's a beautiful setting with talented chefs that create delicious and beautiful plates of food. I've watched this winery grow over the years and truly fall it love with it every time I go. I would love it if they added a lodge or inn for overnight visits.
The Chateau is probably the only high end dining in the immediate area. The setting is beautiful however we were seated far from a window where we could enjoy the view. The clam appetizer was delicious and both of our entrees were fine. The Osso Bucco was just a bit dry. All in all, worth a visit but be prepared to spend a few dollars there.
Our reservation was for 5:30 but we did not leave the restaurant until 7:45 due to the poor service. We have been there for lunch and Sunday buffet for the past 5 years and have always had excellent service. We had to wait for everything. Although the food was excellent, the poor service ruined the meal for our anniversary. Examples being: waiting to order, waiting for the food, having to ask for bread, asking to have the table cleared and the server never returned after the meal was served to see if it was satisfactory. We were embarrassed because we brought guests who were there for their first time. Needless to say, we were very disappointed. Bad service ruins the experience regardless of the quality of the food.
This was our second visit, the first visit we were treated rudely by the hostess because we did not have a reservation. We were told that there were no tables and we would have to wait an hour or more, but this was not the case when others came in after us without reservations, they were seated within 10 minutes, very aggravating. This time we made a reservation an we were seated promptly. We had a beautiful view and our waiter was very nice and efficient. My husband has dietary restrictions and the chef came out and spoke to us saying that he would take care of our meal preparation himself and he even served it to us when he was finished, great service.
Very disappointed in wait for meal - 45 min + for a hamburger and a turkey sandwich. I noticed the one other party in our dining room had a long wait for the meal to be prepared too. The waiter was very nice. The day was advertised as music and food and we made reservations. May be a while before we return.
Enjoyed very much. Food was a little 'rich' for my palate but was able to find a delicious entre. Beautiful day and the crowd was enjoying the music and outdoors very much. Enjoyed the gift shop and the tasting! Delightful afternoon and will definitely return.
Chateau Morrisette is an absolute gem. The service was impeccable, the ambiance is appropriate for a date night, lunch with a great wine selection. After dinner we enjoyed a wine tasting where our server's name was Ray and he was very entertaining. My friend and I have made this a monthly occurrence since going the first time. I would recommend Chateau Morrisette to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the company of another.
We have eaten here many times. What is normally a great experience was anything but, this time. Service was poor. We were served the wrong meal, never asked us how we were enjoying our food, very slow with the drinks, never brought the dessert menu. Just plain inattentive - and with a small croud. No excuse for that. A downer for our 33rd anniversary.
We had Sunday lunch with our cousins who are here from Rhode Island. This is our go to place with guests and once again the food was exceptional, Our server Jennifer was attentive and the overall experience was relaxing and enjoyable. Will be back in a couple of weeks with our next out of town guests.
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.
