  • Burgers and Bread Pudding

    Fit out and decor was great - embodied the elevated bar food scene but without the greasy floors. Lots of wood, reclaimed lumber and a nice use of gobo projector to project their logo in light on the adjacent building. The food was good, and the beer list was varied without seeming overwhelming. The "Late Breakfast" burger was the standout, with fried egg, avocado and cheddar pancake. Meal was topped of with five (that's five) kinds of bread pudding! Couldn't do a BP flight to taste the range, but with enough people and crossing of spoons, you could try them all. Only down-side was an early closing time (11pm) on a Thursday night; not sure if it was standard hours or just due to it being a slow day. All in all a good spot.

    My husband and I and another couple joined us here a few nights ago. Our booth was ready for us when we got there. Our server was very friendly abs attentive. 2 of us ordered burgers and 2 ordered the fish and chips; everything was delish! The brussel sprouts and onion rings were really good too. Will definitely recommended this place to others.

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect at the Morrison, but when I learned that it is owned by the same people behind Stout, it all made sense. Rather than try the burgers though, we opted for the fish & chips, which were very good. My British dining-mates even approved. Since this was a birthday lunch, we were given extra special attention with a sampling of an Irish whisky, a balloon, and a complimentary (and delicious) bread pudding for dessert. A very simple but charming place!

    We ordered a regular burger and a filet minion burger which were great. The filet burger was served on an English muffin with melted cheese which was really good. Because of an error made in the kitchen, the burger had to be remade. The manager came by several time to apologize and provided us with a free bread pudding which was to die for.

    If you are craving a burger, the place has it. Ambience is great and drinks are good and solid. As for the burgers, they were ok. My friends like the bacon on the bacon burger and I enjoyed the flavor combination of the shrooms burger but I was the only one that did. If you are looking for something more than a burger/fries and tasty drinks, probably not the place to be.

    Really enjoyed this place. Great service, excellent food and a pretty outstanding selection of whiskey, bourbon, rye and scotch! Oh, and a ton of great beers on tap! Food is creative, beautifully prepared and served. Kale salad was an interesting (very good) take on Caesar salad and the short rib eggs Benedict was pretty outstanding. Didn't have the burgers but they look delicious and I want to try one the next time we are in. Bread Pudding is amazing and maybe the best I've ever had. Some have scoffed at the prices vs. serving size and I can only imagine that they are used to a lesser quality than The Morrison delivers. Prices are certainly in line with the quality of food.

    Great spot for a sports bar vibe. Lots of beers on tap to choose from, a notable cocktail list, comfy booths & a nice long bar section (for those who like to sit at the bar). My favorite thing about this place was the bread pudding (perhaps one of the best ones I've tried), but the food isn't the best. The jam burger would be better if served on a proper bun instead of an English muffin...the meat overwhelms the bread.

    We went to The Morrison on a very, very busy evening. We knew it would be busy beforehand as a large group was having a special event. The staff were very attentive despite the crowd, and we didn't have to wait long to place drink orders or food orders. Food did not come out at the same time, but due to the huge crowd, we weren't upset at all. Our server was great and handled a split bill without rolling her eyes. :) Food was great, beer selection was also very good.

    Too bright, even for brunch. It looks a little too scrubbed and polished. Lower all those chandeliers by a good six inches, lower the lights or add something to the ceiling around the bar area, it looks like a high school cafeteria serving line and put something interesting in all those display cases around the restaurant, it looks like a Bev Mo displaying what booze you carry.

    This was a decent place, with friendly servers and good enough food. However, it has a lot more work to do to become a restaurant that I would want to return to. There are not enough waiters in the place and we waited over 20 minutes to get our check, which we finally had to walk it over ourselves. This determined our lack of enthusiasm for the place, and we will be unlikely to return. There were only two TVs available, so it was not a real sports bar. There are plenty of restaurants in LA which offer more. The salad was fine, the shepherd's pie was pretty good. The fish was bland but the chips were cooked perfectly. The bread pudding was by far the most delicious item on the menu. The price was average.

The best thing here is their Bread Pudding with house made Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and a Bourbon Butter Sauce. TO DIE FOR!!!

    We were impressed with the restaurant. The food was very good and very interesting. Glad we made a reservation because they put us in a booth in the back, otherwise it would have been a bit too loud. The scotch list was amazing and the beer list was very good, but we were disappointed that some of the selections on the menu were not available. Overall a fun place....

    We went early on a Monday to take advantage of the 4 to 7 happy hour and meat pie Mondays. Lots of Scotch and Beer. I ordered a Cosmopolitan "up" and an interesting drink came that appeared to not have any cranberry juice at all. Then I ordered a Belgian Beer called "Biere de Miel", they were out of that, so I tried something else. Dinner was a Meat pie and a Shepherds Pie, both were good albeit unusual, lots of good lean meat with hardly any vegetables, I doubt that the Shepherds Pie had any lamb.Salads that were served with both were uninteresting. The bread pudding, great tastes but the metal pot was hot but the center of the pudding was ice cold. We probably will try this place again but will ask the server more questions. Loud spot

    Went there last night. Restaurant has a cozy vibe, service very sweet and thoughtful. Food, however, could be taken up a notch, even two. I love good solid pub food, but this pub could do a better job selecting fresher ingredients, composing the plates, and generally putting more care and a little more finesse to the offerings. This place reminds me of several Armenian-owned places in Hollywood where they get the look right but not the food.
