Morels Steakhouse & Bistro - Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Dinner started out okay, but became disjointed when we ordered a seafood tower and appetizers and they decided to move us to a bigger table. We asked for a different table when they initially seated us, and were told one was not available. During the move, our water glasses, "which they insisted they take care of" were mixed up. We'd ordered bottle water, so when the assistant waiter got the glasses mixed up, they charged us for another bottle of water.
One member of our party ordered ice tea, but was told she should try the Arnold Palmer, so she tried it. She did not like it, and had them bring her lemonade. We were charged for both.
I order my meat, either medium or medium well. All of our meat came out over cooked, actually charred on the outside. Flavorful, but never in my life, had I been served steak in a reputable restaurant that looked like this. Not just mine, all four! I know chefs don't like to cook meat medium-well, but it can be done without charring the outside black.
We had eaten at LAVO and CarneVino during our stay, and loved both restaurants and the service. I now see why the ratings are so drastically different.
Finally, as a hotel guest, we had signing privileges set-up, only to be told there was something wrong with my account. I took out a credit card to pay, but then remembered the front desk was right outside, so I walked to the front desk to check, only to be told there was and had never been a problem with my account, and to have the restaurant call them if they continued to have an issue. When I relayed this information, they left the room charge bill for me to sign, and scampered away. They lied and were embarrassed. No one came over to wish us a good evening, after previously having several visits during our dining experience from the manager. I cannot recommend Morels due to its food, and more importantly their unconscious bias. If you did not believe I was who I said I was, why not, just ask to see my ID?
Poor, Disappointing! The raw, cold seafood bar was not working so we were not able to have any cold seafood appetizer. They were out of the only seafood entree offering only one option. We had early reservations and the restaurant was not full so there was no excuse for running out of anything. Basically the entire seafood menu offerings were not available.
We had to ask for water twice when we first sat down. Our entree was dumped on our table within minutes of receiving the appetizers. I had to ask them to take it back and slow down.
The staff while very nice, was running around in a frenzy all night making our heads spin. It seems like the staff is having to work extra hard to make up for a lack of organization and process. Overall, the food quality turned out good and staff did their best. The problem is the management.
I arrived and my party had already been seated outside. It was 50 degrees outside and freezing but there were no other tables available. I asked for them to turn on the heating lamp at our table, but was told it was not working. I asked someone else to bring over a working heating lamp as the first person had simply walked away. We were all wearing our jackets fully zipped with one person seated right by the door so his chair kept getting hit. I walked inside to ask to be moved but was told it was not possible. When we were served our steaks we were asked if we wanted to move but by that time it was a moot point. Service was rude as we were told off when our server asked if we had the tenderloin and we said we had filet mignon and rib eye. He came back out and said these are your steaks i asked you about them 10 minutes ago. My $63 ribeye was not medium, but overly well done and basically inedible. This was a business meal and I was not going to make a fuss about the steak when so much was already going wrong. Terrible service, terrible food.
Restaurant was set up to nearly double normal capacity for CES. It was like eating in a very expensive cafeteria. Unbelievably loud, with everyone packed in like sardines.
Service was spotty at best. Food completely forgettable.
The Grad Lux Cafe which is the Casual Dining restaurant had better food, service, and ambiance for less than half the price. I’ll never eat there again.
A waste of $1, 200.
This was a terrible experience.
First of all, I had a reservation for 9PM, I only got my table assigned at 9.50PM. Second, me and my dining partner had to share a table with another couple of diners. Third, ordering some bread was not possible...."we don't have any bread".
The crew gave the impression that they did not know what to do and how to handle big crowds, it was chaotic, noisy and just not a nice place to sit and spend you money.
So, me and my dining partner left, before ordering.
Overall, this was a bad experience for such a classy looking overpriced place.
Three of us had a reservation for 8:45PM. We checked in early but weren't seated until 9:30. They did serve us a complimentary glass of champagne while we were waiting but in general the front was overwhelmed with guests arriving and no open tables. The restaurant was busy because of CES. We didn't get any menus and no one asked if we wanted something to drink. We finally flagged someone and he brought us some menus and another person served us water and bread after we asked. Our waiter finally came by to take our order after 10PM. There were two other tables that were seated shortly after us and there service wasn't any better. One table was able to order around 9:45 but the waiter didn't come back to take the orders for us and the other table until after 10. Two of us ordered the rib eye medium rare and one ordered the halibut. We ordered some sides. The food finally arrived after 11PM. And the rib eyes were overcooked, just short of well done. When we pointed this out to the waiter, he offered to redo the steaks but we wanted to finish before midnight so we declined. The sides were lukewarm, too. I picked at my steak, it wasn't very good. Not sure what was happening in the kitchen but not a pretty night. The waiter didn't charge us for one of the steaks. The manager should have known things weren't going well but no one came by to apologize for the poor service or food. One of the other tables mentioned their steaks were fine; they got served before 11. It was the worst meal and experience I've had in Vegas, ever.
Sorry to say that for CES this restaurant is running a cut down menu for speed more akin to McDonald’s. Very disappointed by what has for some time been one of my favorite Vegas destinations.
Management offered free desserts to compensate for our disappointment but the usual 25 minute prep time extended to nearly an hour.
Nice setting sitting outside on the patio. Service was professional and polite, but slow. Had two appetizers that were delicious, but we each ordered a salad for a main course and they were quite disappointing. Neither had much flavor and in fact my salad with grilled chicken tastes like it had no dressing at all. Very busy during CES which caused service to be slow.
The food was excellent. The wine.....wonderful. The waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. This was our 2nd visit to Morels and it wasn't our last. We had the onion soup and the beet salad to start. We weren't disappointed. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the scallops appetizer. Both were excellent.
We went on New Year's Eve for dinner with family - we had a table outside the kitchen. They had put out numerous extra tables. We had been then prior to this and were pleased. Due to the holiday and wanting to get as many people in as possible they were overcrowded. We were also given a menu and told it was the only thing they were serving - $150 per person. Later we saw other people ordering off of a different menu. We were disappointed since the menu we were given there were a number of things we didn't care for. Would have preferred to have been given a choice like the other guests.
The food was fair for the price, but the service was extremely slow. Not to mention that our server told us bottles of wine were 25% off and then told us that wasn’t the case when we got our check and asked about it. It’s hard to believe they didn’t follow through on their word when it was their error. Soufflé was probably the best thing about our whole meal. I’ve been here once before and the male bartender had a serious attitude. Not sure I will be back.
My team enjoyed a lovely lunch prior to Christmas break for the weekend. Our waitress gladly counseled us in some appropriate cheese board selections, and was very patient in scenarios of indecisiveness from our group. Our drinks were topped off regularly by one of the young men circling the room, he had perfect timing and impeccable service as well. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a beautiful venue and perfectly cooked food that was seasoned to perfection. I should note that many of us ended up with to-go containers, as we did not expect the portion sizes to be so large. Best wishes to the Morels team for a job well done!
One of the best on the Strip. Great food and wonderful service. i have been going there for 9 years, (since it opened at the Palazzo). Scott the food server is one of my favorite service provider in the world! He makes such an effort to please and explain the food you ordered.
I can not wait to return.
