They anticipated our needs and responded! Their recommendations were spot on. We wanted a quiet romantic dinner and when a large party was seted next to us, they moved us without us asking. The service just continued to amaze us! The French onion soup was rich! The beet bourgonion was to die for.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food! Wine was deliciousAmazing food!

Assigned room was very nice.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA great overall experience...We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The group started off eating in the dining room and had a nice meal of chicken liver parfait, scallops, beef bourguignon, and others. The flavors were very nice, and plates were put together well. We heard some piano music afterwards and ventured into the bar area. It was a very energetic and fun sing-a-long at the piano, but the singers had quite a bit of talent. Rosen, the bartender, was great and made some darn good drinks. We look forward to returning and sitting in the Grille to experience the singing and dinner combo.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely returnI had a great experience with my wife. Service was very friendly and hospitable. Food was very good, as well. I didn't know this place existed. I will return. The wine list needs a little work, but that is just me being a snob.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Alex Rest WeekWe had the Alex Rest Week menu and it was delicious. But best of all, this Grille turns into a neighborhood upscale Kareoke experience with talelnted artists. Put this on your bucket list!1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMUniqueHad a very enjoyable experience. The piano singalong was the highlight. I cannot wait to return.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining at the very leastWent for breakfast. John is great. So entertaining. Ask him to play piano. Good was good but John stole the show.1/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat is up with the haters?My meal was great. Service was also very personable. The Restaurant Week menu has a lot of variety. The portions are perfect. Are the prices a little high? A little, but well within the "hotel markup" range. I don't know some have been drinking the haterade. For goodness sake it's a Kimpton Hotel - just bring up your issues to a manager. I personally didn't have any on this visit though. Sorry, I digress. Anyway, I loved everything, especially the piano music and singalong was fun.1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIf only I could order everythingWe had dinner here, and I must say I was not expecting much, but we were very happy in the end.
Salmon Tartare - one of the best I ever had
Scallops - delicious and cooked a perfect medium
Duck - great flavors and crispy skin
Banana Crepes - unique and flavorful
Will try a few more things upon my return.1/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood brunchBrunch was great. Gets eggs hussarde. Poached eggs in two hollowed out potatoes served with hollandaise, brown sauce, and sausage. Wow.1/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised...Had a nice dinner on a more quiet night. Service was very good. The bartender was hilarious. I will return.1/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Enjoyed my experience there. I was in the hotel and even though I came down to dine alone, staff couldn't have been nicer. Beef Bourguignon was delicious.12/27/2012 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a lovely late breakfastEnjoyed a lovely late breakfast with friends during the holidays. Both the food and service was very good. Only negative was there was no key to open the bar so we could not toast the holiday.12/24/2012 12:00:00 AMSolid BrunchEverything was great. The server, John, was a riot. I will be back.12/23/2012 12:00:00 AMService was terrific. BarService was terrific. Bar staff was friendly, helpful, and skilled with drink preps
Food was delicious, we had duck and chicken, and both were cooked perfectly. Went for our anniversary dinner, and both of us felt that it was worth the money.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE DINING EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIMEI have never had an experience like I had at the Grill at the Morrison House AT 116 S. Alfred Street Alexandria, Virginia. From the beginning when i pressed the button for the butler to take my car. We were greeted by a woman who was really nice. We we directed to the Dining area which was done in period taste. Our server was very knowledgable and very nice. My wife and I choose the 7 course, of which was wonderful. The presentation was out of this world. We had never had a seven course before so it was a new experience. My daughter did not want to eat that much. Over all I give it an outstanding reccomendation. I will sure come back Mothers day if I can get a reservation. I go dining on special oocations.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Morrison House. We had a lovely time. John was very attentive and made our visit outstanding. We will definitely go back again.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. EnjoyedGreat food and service. Enjoyed the Friday open mike as well. As they mention on their website, ask for one of the quieter dining rooms to enjoy the music "from a distance" and still be able to have nice table conversation.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIntimate dinner, excellentIntimate dinner, excellent food and service, topped off by a visit to the grill and the live music2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Most Delightful TeaMy friends and I went here for afternoon tea on a Saturday. We love high tea and The Grille didn't disappoint. The main items were all delicious and plentiful. There was a great selection of teas and lots of help in choosing what would please our palates. Like any good tearoom, if you don't like the tea they will replace it. Then came the out of this world sweets. It's hard to pick a fav but I'd have to say the white chocolate covered gooseberries. This was such a relaxing time and it was made even more enjoyable by our outstanding waiter, James. He's a clever and charming Irishman who serves one heck of a tea. Highly recommended!2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
