Morel Ratings and Reviews

The service and food were both excellent. Interesting food and cocktail menu selections. Chestnut soup was amazing. Warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
We called because we were going to be a few minutes late and they were very accommodating.

Great service from everyone. Host, waitstaff and bartenders are all friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. The food is excellent and is farm to table focused. It is a changing menu depending on availability, if it's on the menu rabbit ragout, lamb ragout pheasant and short ribs are all great choices. Duck confit ravioli with black truffle app was delicious. The salted caramel mousse for dessert is a must for us when we go. Great cocktails and small/nice beer and wine list.

One of my new favorite restaurants in Milwaukee! We split a bunch of the small plates and had some ciders and it was all super delicious. Very excited to return. There isn't a lot of room so make a reservation or eating at the bar looked good too.

Room was cold (around 65 degrees) at 6pm when we arrived. Portions were small - had to order an extra serving of vegetables when my wife's entree arrived with 5 small green beans in the plate. The meat dishes were excellently prepared.

Excellent food and I like the local farm to table. I highly recommend Morels for special occasions and dates. Expect to pay at least $60 per plate (appetizer,dinner, 2 drinks and tip) great taste, good portions, loved it.

Food was good and everything is locally sourced and homemade (including the delicious breads and pastas). It was a little expensive for the portion sizes and options, but the service was excellent and the atmosphere is nice.

What a great place. Excellent food, good wine. Outstanding waitstaff. Tucked away just southwest of downtown, the location is easy to reach. Convenient on-strteet parking, plus a Morel-only lot across the street. Doesn't get much better!

The food was wonderful. Service was great too. We came to Milwaukee to see a Chris Botti concert and this was an excellent way to start the evening. I look forward to returning to Morel for another great experience.

First time at Morel with the wife for date night. Great food, great drinks, great ambiance. The service was delightful, but getting seated and served was super slow. It was a Satuday, and speed at a restaurant is not that important to me, so we will go again in a heartbeat!

Loved the décor. Staff was very friendly and efficient.
The music was outstanding. A lot of effort has been put into the selection.
2 of the 4 meals were an issue in that the short ribs were too "fatty".
The chef was apologetic.

The food was outstanding. Each dish blew us away. I would highly recommend the duck pate appetizer. In fact I would order two of them next time. I had the beef short ribs and the meat was done to perfection. My wife had the trout and she said it was the best that she has ever had. Also a very good wine selection.

Our party of four arrived a bit early but Morel was able to seat us immediately. Service was great but we did not feel rushed. We ordered appetizers and then dinner. The ribs and trout were excellent! On a previous visit we ate at the bar and enjoyed friendly service by Joe and a view of the talented Chefs at work!

We can't figure out why this place is so popular. The dining room is small, yet incredibly loud. It was impossible for the two of us to carry on a conversation without shouting. In addition, we had to wait for our table past our reservation time. We were told they "can't" sit 2 people at a 4-top. Yet, the couple after us were seated at a 4-top. So much for that "rule". Next, we order 2 of the same cocktail from their cocktail list, only to be told that they couldn't make them because they were out of a couple of the ingredients. And those cocktails sowed up on our bill. Overall, the food was just OK. The menu is quite limited. Needless to say, this was our last visit to Morel.

This was our first time at Morel and it really lived up to the hype! The minute we walked in were welcomed by a very friendly host who had us laughing by the time we got to our table. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful with the wine list and menu. Everything we ordered (including freshly foraged mushrooms) was outstanding. I got the pork shoulder and joined the clean plate club. It was a great way to celebrate my husbands birthday! They even brought out some complimentary prosseco with our dessert! We will definitely be back.

Overall We were pleased with Morel. The food was high quality and creative. I had the lamb which was very good, but a little weird. What I mean is that the lamb itself was an excellent piece of meat well cooked and tender, but very delicate. The lamb was matched with a merguez, which again was good in itself, but the contrast of the two did not really work for me. The merguez completely overpowered the delicate lamb. I basically ate the dish as two separate plates. Lamb first, merguez second. Nothing was bad I just thing the combo did not work.
Service was great once it started. Morel is hot right now, so a little wait is to be expected, but when it gets to 30 minutes it is a bit much. I always use the counter example. If I was 30 minutes late for a reservation I know what would happen. The host knew it was a problem, he even commented that some people seem to think Morel is a hotel, not a restaurant. I do have some sympathy, but most 4 star places know that at this point a little something-something is required.
Still overall I will return. It will be when the place calms down and there won't be that worry of waiting for a reserved table.
My second trip to Morel and it was just ...
My second trip to Morel and it was just as good as the first time. Wonderful, inventive cocktail menu. Seasonal dishes using local and creative ingredients. Fun rustic decor. The mushroom appetizer and to die for, corn chowder soup crazy good! Lamb dish was flavorful but way too salty. I should have sent it back but didn't feel up to being annoying, everything else was so fantastic. I will definitely return and in case something is too salty again, will let them know. Stuff happens...
