A word from Morel's Restaurant - Michigan
Morels is a celebration of Michigan. Our wine list is the first indicator with its nice selection of local wines. The celebration continues with our Chefs menu that features Michigan ingredients in every dish and is as close to "farm to table" as any restaurant in town. All of our beers are local as well.

    Two of us joined my husband as his cocktail was being delivered. We ordered our cocktails and couldn't believe how long it took to make and deliver them! Our appetizers came in a timely manner, but the main courses did not. And we waited an inordinate amount of time to ask for our check -- we hailed another waitperson who said she would find him, which apparently took some time. We had been to Morel's several times previously and had very nice meals. My husband's favorite dish was their flavorful flatiron steal ---- but they don't have it anymore. It was "replaced" by a more expensive cut. My fish was lukewarm, which I should have sent back, but I didn't want to delay the meal further. All in all, a big disappointment.

    We went to Morel's for my birthday. It was a very relaxed and pleasant experience. We had the mushroom for two appetizer, which I would highly recommend. For our entree we both had salmon. Our server was attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. We I'll definitely go back.

    The mushroom soup was a standout, but everything else was what you'd expect from almost any mid-grade restaurant. Nothing was wrong or bad, it just wasn't noticeably good. We were hoping for a memorable experience, which may have been an unfair expectation,. I'm not sure where Morel's is hoping to position themselves, but I put them just above J Alexander with higher prices.

    We had heard that the food was not as good as the old Morels restaurant. We ordered fish and lamb and it was very good. The service was very good and the wine list on par for the entrees. We really appreciated the way mushrooms are incorporated into many of the dishes served. We will eat again at Morels.

    This was the worst place I could have taken my spouse for a lunch date. The food was subpar and the service was horrible. Our server, Jonathan, did not have any personality. We didn't know his name until we recieved our bill. He never came by to ask how everything was nor did he suggest anything on the menu that was a favorite. He never smiled and forgot what we ordered when our plates arrived therefore giving us the incorrect orders. If this is what Morels constitutes as good service I think they should go back to the drawing board!

    When I eat out I don't want it to be food I can cook in my kitchen. In addition to that I don't want to eat food that comes off a Cisco truck. This was real cooking with quality ingredients. There was interesting combination of ingredients as well, but they worked great together. I would highly recommend this for a business or leisure lunch.

    Four of us went to Morels to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. We were fortunate to be seated at the outdoor patio. The service was exceptional. We started with the mushroom sample for 2 which was a fungophile's dream. The entree fish was moist and tasty. All 4 of us enjoyed the evening and will return often.

    I will have to go back and try the normal dinner service and menu to give a true rating due to the fact that the most recent visit was for Mother's Day Brunch and it was not very special. The food and service were ok and not what I would have expected from Morel's, but it was buffet style.

    We ordered from the pre fixe menu. My wife cannot eat meat or highly seasoned food and there was no fish on the menu. The restaurant very graciously offered to prepare a whitefish entree for her. Very much appreciated. The food was excellent, particularly the mushroom strudel. Our server was right on top of everything.

    We enjoyed the food - it was tasty, nicely presented, and served at the right temperature. The portions were very generous and at future visits, we would share some of the items. We were a bit surprised by wine list, the only had American wines. Unfortunately service was not up to the quality of the food and the ambiance. Our server was amateurish, He made some comments that we felt were immature and he didn't know how to serve sparking wine..

    The restaurant was not very busy when we ate there, mainly because it was a Sunday night. They do tend to be busier on other days. The menu is inventive, offering interesting and unique choices that feature local Michigan ingredients. Various kinds of mushrooms, (as in the Morel mushroom), are also prominently featured in several of the appetizers, soups and main dishes, although there was plenty of variety of choices for the non-mushroom lover too. Everything we ate was top notch too. Service was impeccable too. Our waitress was very warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. A great choice!

    Food is vey good. A little pricy. more meat entrees apposed to all the fish options would have me going back regularly.. Glasses of wine could be a dollar or two cheaper. great choice of Michigan craft beer, all bottles, none on tap. special occasion place for sure, with tip spent 100 for two. that is with drinks and dessert. I little high for a weekly treat but worth checking out for that special day.

    I liked the food very much. The food/menu was somewhat sophisticated but still accessible which was just right for a group that included children. Everything was well seasoned. The other diners were well-dressed and friendly. Impression of the restaurant was pleasant. I would recommend it. One strange note--the server did not offer alcohol--which I could take or leave but I would have preferred a glass of wine with the really good buffet. Some people might think it a plus that the server did not push the alcohol sales.

    The food was very good but the service left much to be desired. While the waiter was certainly competent, he injected zero personality into the service he provided and was rather transparent about prioritizing a larger table over ours once he realized we weren't ordering drinks. He seemed to perk up when we ordered dessert, but again that was more of his transparent lack of interest in patrons who don't order enough to ensure a large tip. I wish I remembered his name but his absenteeism made it difficult.
