We had delicious salads followed by excellent entrees. Our waitress, Jennifer, was a delight. The only improvement would have been air conditioning in the back room.

Our visit was a great experience the only problem was to find the winery since there is no
sign on the highway.

We always enjoy visiting Chateau Morrisette. The food is fabulous, the outdoor seating has remarkable views, and the service has always been excellent. We try to visit the restaurant and the winery on every trip through the parkway.

The restaurant has a lovely view of the Blue Ridge mountains. The real bargain is the Sunday live music under the tent, wine by the bottle, light fare....very casual and enjoyable!

My husband & I love to come to Chateau Morrisette when we are @ our farm in SWVA. By far, great fine dining! My dinner was great but my husband didn’t care for veggie combination under his pork chop. The pork chop was great! May want to do pork chop dish a little different!

We have not eaten at Chateau Morrissette in a long time, but still found it to be an overall enjoyable dining experience. We were surprised to find a wedding party going on, but our greeter explained carefully why it was busy, and we were offered seating outside where the noise level was much better.

Food quality not up to par. I have been coming to morrisette since 1979. The best days of the restaurant were in the 1980's,

I took my Mom for her birthday. Construction on the parkway caused us to miss our reservation but the host was very gracious and took care of us. I love the atmosphere there. I really liked their Chardonnay. My only complaint is we were served old, lukewarm coffee with dessert. Otherwise, everything else was really nice.

Seemed under staffed on this Sunday. Slow service and we were not really in a hurry. Food was good but one item listing was confusing. From our perspective an incorrect listing. Beautiful view outside as always. Nice atmosphere. We have had 5 star service in previous trips. This one overall was only a 3 star experience.

We had read about the view from dinning on the deck; however, it was a stormy and rainy Friday evening, so no deck experience. We dined regardless as it was our wedding anniversary, and we are pleased we did. Our dinning experience was wonderful in every perspective. We will go back this summer to dine on the deck!

The view was most wonderful and restaurant itself were very nice and clean. The food was good, however the dessert was a major disappointment. The chocolate cake was actually a dry, almost seemed as if it was frozen then thawed brownie. Service was good, wait staff friendly as well.

We shared a trout appetizer that was excellent. Service was excellent. Desserts were very good. The only down side was the Shrimp and Grits entrée...while it wasn't bad, the non-traditional marinara sauce overpowered the shrimp and mushrooms and cheese in the dish. I can do better at home...

We have been here 3 years in a row with another couple celebrating our anniversaries. We will not go back again. It was very hot inside. We happened to be seated at a table next to the thermostat. It said 80 degrees inside. We asked to speak to a manager and he barely gave us the time of day, just turned down the thermostat which was already set for 64! We complained again. He said he could move us to a table just a few steps away. Then we had a party of 20 sit beside us. Couldn't hear yourself think! Food was good. Only thing that kept us from walking out. Manager, Kevin, could care less about our experience! There was a wedding going on and VA tech graduation. We picked a BAD weekend but he should have been a little more concerned.

Noisy children running around our table without their parents supervising. This put a damper on the dining experience. Rib eye steak was good except it was one half fat. My wife's meal was good.

Lovely setting, very nice "light lunch" with wine, overlooking a beautiful landscape. One of my wife's favorite spots. Chef's cheese board was good..not great...but the outdoor setting for lunch and the rich full bodied red wine I ordered, made up for any shortcomings.

We had a very nice intimate business lunch here, on a rainy, less busy weekday. The service was friendly and solicitous. We enjoyed the food and the beverages - two of the wines and one of the delicious new ciders. The potato soup and pear cheesecake were particularly outstanding. All in all, it was the perfect location and meal.
