I'd read reviews before about ordering steak, or other beef offerings from Morgan's, but wrote them off as others just being too hard to please. Well, I guess I should have listened. Ordered a 12oz New York Strip and was totally disappointed, it was fatty, tough and somewhat flavorless. However, my wife had fish and it was fabulous! So were our appetizers.. Go figure.
The service was very good and we had a nice little nook for our date night and because the rest of the experience was favorable I did not complain about the quality of the cut of meat I was served.
Think twice about ordering!

It is always a pleasure to bring new people to Woodland to enjoy one of our treasures. Morgan’s on Main is definitely a favorite for a special occasion or a business lunch. Consistently great cuisine and service in a stunning environment. Bravo again!

This was my second time here in 2 weeks (and one week ago was my first)... I had their special - shrimp scampi... it was in a word perfect (just enough garlic). My husband had a steak with peppercorn sauce -- also highly recommend. Their house bread (available upon request -- REQUEST IT!) was a tangy sour dough...
everything was just right!

This is most likely the best restaurant in Yolo County!!! WOW!! Every single thing we had was perfect-- we had the lobster tail that was on special, the ribs and short-ribs. I wish I could say one was better than the other but they were all exceptional. The thing I was most impressed with was how their sides were given as much care as the entrees. The lobster came with broccolini with a touch of garlic and amazing rice. The short ribs came with roasted baby carrots and garlic mashed. The ribs with homemade mac & cheese and corn. All the vegetables were farm-fresh. They also had a seasonal drink special made cucumber vodka and fresh watermelon. I can't wait to go back-- what a secret gem in Woodland!

We are always happy with our meals at Morgans but they were obviously short staffed or other entities such as the kitchen or bar were slow/understaffed on their end. Our server was running the whole time we were there yet remained professional and courteous. We started with a"Bowl of Bacon". I highly recommend, it is a fun treat. We both got the Rib Eye (cooked perfectly to medium), shared the three cheese mac and cheese and finished with the in house made sorbet of Peach, Raspberry and Mango. The sorbet flavors all had different consistency. The peach was very icy, the mango was exactly right and the raspberry was melted before it made it to the table.

We had a wonderful dinner but the service was awful, as usual! We give up! Despite having a reservation it took forever to get our order taken, to get the food, and then to get the check. The appetizer was forgotten, and brought at the end of the meal. The waiter admitted the error, but didn't comp it or make up for it. 2 of us went to the bar after dinner for a cocktail, and my husband waited for the check by himself for 20 minutes! Our friends quit going due to the poor service . . . I guess we will too. Could be such a simple remedy, but never is.

Waitress good. The watermelon drink was not good. Wine ok. Burger was pretty good as well as Brussels sprout salad. Super bummed that it was our anniversary and we didn’t get a complimentary dessert. Pretty cheap of Morgan’s.

We had a party of 9 so we were seated in the special events room. There were 2 other large parties in the room with us and there was never a time where you couldn't hear the person across the table. Very nice ambiance. Our waiter was very nice and informative. He took all of the ladies order first which I thought was a nice touch.

The noise level is very high due to high ceilings and brick walls. Perhaps some carpets on the floor might absorb some of the noise. The food was presented beautifully and the service was excellent..

Service was a bit slow this time. My mother had the lobster tail, she said it was excellent. I had the filet mignon (minus the bacon). I rarely eat steak, so this was a treat for me. The filet was very tasty and cooked perfectly, however, it was not as tender as I had expected. Filet should melt in your mouth, this did not. It was not a $38 piece of meat in my opinion. So that was a disappointment.

Been to Morgan's on Main many times and their food is always quite good. This time we had their pork chop dinner and it was very good. We went there to celebrate our 58th anniversary. Other special occasions they had a small special dessert or cake for us. This time, nothing but a little sign on the table that said Happy Anniversary. I really expected more. However, service (waiter Jack) and food were excellent, as usual.

There were four in our party and we all had excellent food. Two had the pork chops and the other two had steaks. We really enjoyed our food. The cocktails were good too.... creative
combination of flavors unique to their menu.

We were disappointed that they were out of their pull apart bread for which they are noted and they were out of prime rib. I was surprised since we had a 7:30 reservation on a Saturday night. The service was slow and we needed to ask for additional bread twice and for water glasses to be filled.

I would recommend this restaurant.

The server was great and made delicious recommendations. Our order was processed in a timely manner without error. My boyfriend got the filet and I had the salmon with risotto. Unfortunately the risotto was a bit watered down, and lacked the rich flavor one would expect. We also got an appetizer and three drinks, putting our total at $130. Considering the portions and overall quality, I don’t believe this was the best value for the dollar. We will most likely go back, but avoid the cocktails.

This was our first visit to M.O.M. We enjoyed the experience - sharing lunch with our friends. The service was excellent. The food was also, but a bit too salty for our taste, especially the potato that came with the meatloaf. The peach custard for dessert was delicious and light. Our table was very private, which we appreciated as my husband sometimes has a difficult time hearing in restaurants. We will definitely return.

Sub-par entrees that missed it on the flavor. The steak was a bad cut and the pork chop horseradish sauce was not my favorite. The pork chop portion was large and the meat was good. Scallops were nicely cooked but, again, lacked freshness and flavor. Overall service was typical for area - not on par with price and lacking polish.

We have eaten here several times. The food is consistently well-prepared and presented nicely. The staff are courteous and knowledgeable about the different plates. The meat is high quality and it is worth a trip to Woodland to come here. My only suggestion would be to not come if you are in a hurry. The point here is to enjoy the ambiance, company, and food without feeling rushed. This may not be a good choice if you are in a hurry to catch a movie, for example. But if you are looking for a nice place to spend an evening, then come here. There are a section of tables that have individual booths and those are more private (that's more likely to happen if you book a reservation). But even if you don't get a booth, and you just get a regular table, you will probably not be disappointed. We will definitely be back when we have the opportunity. This is of course not inexpensive compared to some other places, but in my opinion, the prices are appropriate for the quality and presentation of the food, in addition to the atmosphere, which is pleasant.
