We come to the area every year for a Christmas tree. The winery and restaurant is part of the tradition as something to add to the festivities. This place is really special. Beautifully decorated for the season and several fireplaces add to the coziness of the intimate dining rooms. The staff are all very friendly, attentive and no request or question (allergy) was frowned upon. No complaints from our party about the food either. One of our party is very picky and critical, her first time joining us, and she was very satisfied. We really enjoy our visits every time.

Wonderful food, view, atmosphere and service. We discovered Chateau Morrisette years ago while living in North Carolina near the Virginia foothills. Although we now live in Georgia, we make it a point to go a bit out of our when traveling so we can enjoy the fine food and wine. The lovely drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway is an added bonus.

We chose it to celebrate our anniversary. We had reservations on a Sunday for lunch. The food was very good, the service was very good, the ambiance was very good. We'll go back when the Blue Ridge Parkway is open so access to the Chateau Morrisette is easier. The wind was howling and the fog was thick, and the fire in the lobby went out because the wood was wet. We went to the winery for a tasting afterward. It was a good day, with our meal at the heart of it.

A top notch experience all around. Had lunch in the restaurant first (separate building from the wine tasting). The food was all excellent but the potato leek soup was especially notable. After a leisurely lunch, Wales over to the wine tasting room....nicer and larger than expected. Tastings were generous (ten wines and 3 hard ciders) and quite good. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We were pleasantly surprised to see so many gluten free options on the menu. The wait for our meal was a bit too long, but we enjoyed the warm olive appetizer while sipping our wine in front of the fire. It was worth the drive. If going in the winter, take the Black Ridge Road route and dress warm. It's only 20 minutes from the Town of Floyd, but it's 10 degs. cooler and breezy.

The room we were located in was COLD! Too cold to eat! So we sucked down a good meal...didn’t enjoy it like we should. They did NOT offer to exclude any on the bill either. We had a nice and well knowledgeable server, but it was so COLD that it was not an enjoyable afternoon!

We had Sunday brunch at Chateau Morisette as part of our honeymoon. We loved our appetizers (cheese board and warm olives) and the delicious fresh mimosas. Our omelets were also delicious, although we found it odd that nearly everything on the menu came with a side of french fries... including the omelets. We also had a side of goat cheese grits which are amazing! Our waiter was personable and friendly, although not always as prompt as we would have liked. Overall, we enjoyed our visit.

My brother was visiting and took our mom and me to lunch. We had our favorite server and were seated in a smaller middle room with a fireplace. The ambiance was perfect for a cold windy day and the food, as always, was delicious. This is my 86 yr old mother’s favorite place to dine and we have come to Chateau Morrisette since it opened. It just gets better.

I didn't like our table- back room, no window. With the view outside I would have loved a window seat. The menu was limited- mostly not very good sandwiches. We had the steak sandwich-not very good. We also had the meat and cheese platter- it was excellent! The wine was great.

This was our third dinner at Chateau Morrisette in the past 10 days, and all three dining experiences were FABULOUS! The sunset this past Saturday evening was absolutely stunning. Julie was our server all three nights, upon my request, and she is an outstanding hostess, waitress, and just a wonderful person! The food was consistent in flavor and quality and we love the wine! We delighted in the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Archival, three of our favorites. Chateau Morriette will remain a treat when we are spending the weekend at our cabin in the Blue Ridge Mtns.

We recently dined for lunch and had Julie as our server. She was also our server for a couple of other visits and is always pleasant, professional and polite. We experienced a bit of a timing issue due to a larger party ahead of us but Julie made sure we were well taken care of and explained the delay from the kitchen. Everyone is very nice and the view is always spectacular unless of course it is foggy. Thank you!

My wife and I had lunch here for our one year anniversary. Both the winery and restaurant offer a unique atmosphere with beautiful outdoor views. They have a very large selection of wines, craft brews, and ciders.

The food was mediocre. Not horrible, just blah. I would be willing to give it another shot though just for the experience.

Food was very good. Caesar salad did not have enough dressing on it. I am not a lover of a lot of dressing but this was almost dry. For $10 I expected more. Service was a little slow. We had to ask for a dessert menu, as well as our check. No coffee was ready to drink with our dessert-really? One sandwich, 1 entree, salad, and a glass of wine was over $71 before tip. Scenery was gorgeous and there was a fire going in the fireplace which was very nice.

I took my wife for her birthday and we were accompanied by my son and my wife's mother. We made a reservation for brunch. When we arrived, we were almost immediately greeted and they had our table ready. (minimal waiting) We were disappointed to learn that brunch was actually just a few menu items that included eggs on them. I should have investigated better but a few years ago brunch was actually a buffet brunch. They hadn't had brunch again until this year. Wine selection was adequate as well as the beers. Meat and cheese plate a bit skimpy for $17 and should have included a few crackers or some more bread for 4 of us. The menu was limited to about 8 choices and not very varied. We all got the steak sandwich at $15. Again a bit pricey and the bread was as hard as a rock. It should have been cut into halves but was not. I asked for a steak knife to cut it and i still had trouble. I had to help cut my mother-in-law's and my wife's sandwiches. Neither one of them are wimpy-just how tough the bread was. Server was great but we did not get a refill on our cokes. Atmosphere was noisey due to the high ceilings and an almost full dining crowd. This has become an October tradition for us and even with the minor complaints we will be back next year. The grounds were nice for this time of year but the parking was a bit haphazard and had to park on a slight slope which made it difficult for my elderly mother-in-law to exit and enter the vehicle. I just wish for a Sunday afternoon there were more dinner type choices.

We have been visiting the "Chateau" [as we call it] for over 18 years. We met many fine staff members during those years. Some have moved on and new quality staff have replaced them. We enjoy Jason C our waiter as he is very intuitive and does not rush us, allows us space to talk and absorb the wonderful "Chateau" atmosphere. [give him a big fat raise] Jordon is an excellent hostess and moves customers smoothly to assigned tables and is well organized and friendly. Richard is a assistant table waiter who was very nice, accommodating and personable.

What a lovely meal I had with my family at Chateau Morrisette this week-end! The weather was crisp and fall-like, but the sun was shining into the dining room (we lucked up with a window seat), and we enjoyed a delicious leisurely lunch on a beautiful fall day. This is an amazing place to enjoy the best that the Blue Ridge has to offer. Great wine, good food, reasonably priced - a real treat. Highly recommend.

Have visited CM for dinner numerous times in the past in the spring and fall. Went for lunch this past weekend and seems as though they were severely understaffed. Food was excellent as always, but there was a line to be seated; tables were not being cleared in a timely manner; salads and entrees arrived together; second glasses of wine were not delivered. Maybe they’re better equipped to handle the dinner crowd, but at this price point, some work is needed.

First we were seated at a table clearly for only 4 and there were 5 of us. Why reserve for 5? It was uncomfortable and we had to ask twice before we were moved.
Everyone was generally happy with their food. I ordered mussels which would have been better had they been hot. And I would have greatly appreciated a plate for my discarded shells rather than having to use 3 of my table mates bread plates.
It’s the little things that make for a great dining experience. They were overlooked.

We always enjoy going to Chateau Morrisette for the food and the ambiance. The food did not disappoint--but we did find the large dining room to be too cold. It was an overcast and cool Fall day and there was a ceiling fan right above our table that the wait staff could not find the switch to turn off, although the same kind of fan at the other end of the room was off??? There was a fire at the other end of the room that we couldn't feel, of course. Other than that, service was good and friendly. Our experience would have been perfect had the room not been so cold.
