    Disappointing lunch. Chicken sandwich was rubbery, crab cake was barely fried and tasted fishy. The prior meal was great for dinner, maybe an off lunch day? Service was good, it's a nice place, I would try again.

    I have very much enjoyed previous experiences at Blue Morel, but this Mother’s Day was sub par. The menu selections were mediocre at best, the service was just ok (had to ask for things multiple times) and the food preparation was not good (boring appetizers, overcooked/dry halibut, poorly described desserts with child-like accompaniments that included chocolate chips) It felt like the chefs decided to not come to work on Mother’s Day and left it for staff to prepare on their own. And for $100 pp and an automatic (and undisclosed) 20% gratuity, the meal was not worth the expense. For the price, I expected much better.

    The Mother’s Day 3 course menu was exceptional except the desserts seemed little lazy. The pain au chocolates with cherry was like a chocolate chip muffin with cherries in it. The strawberry verrine was a little weird. I guess they just wanted something they could have ready in advance. Appetizers and entrees were all outstanding.

    Very pricey for very mediocre food. This may be because of the Mother's Day fixed menu. The lobster quiche was dry and seemed as if it may have been under a heat lamp all morning. The prime rib was tasty but not worth the price tag. Both dishes were under-sized for the price.

    I've eaten here several times, and I've never had anything I would complain about until Mother's Day brunch. There was a prix fixe menu, and one of the choices was quiche with lobster. It was by far the worst quiche I've ever eaten. It had little egg filling. It was very dry, and the lobster (which had just been sprinkled over the top) was tough and dry. Also, the dessert my husband and daughter ordered (advertised as pain au chocolat) was weird and tasteless. All the rest of the dishes were delicious, including a fresh pea soup that was amazing.

    It was not a BAD experience but for the extremely high price, service was not good, my steak was ultra fatty inside and outside, (it was a strip steak) the ceasar salad was drenched in Cesar dressing (dripping) extremely tart, and they didn’t have the drink I ordered (crown apple and sprite). I gave it 2 stars for food because the flavor of the outside of the steak was amazing. Wish I could have eaten it. They did not charge me for the steak, and we still spent over $200 for 3 people. The entree comes with nothing. Everything is charged. (Located in the hotel which was beautiful.) Wouldn’t recommend for a high end restaurant.

    We had a wonderful experience there. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The atmosphere quiet and elegantly tasteful. The menu was great in that it offered varied entrees and innovative presentations of foods. Everything was delicious. The evening was sort of family reunion, and the staff allowed us to stay long enough to catch up with what everyone was doing. Great room, great food and great staff!

    Wine by the glass choices were excellent. The Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs were different and delicious - we made our own flights to taste them! The food was superb - especially the Pate de Fois Gras starter and Rhubarb-Strawberry tart dessert.

    We went on Easter Sunday for their brunch. We did a late reservation 5 PM. The brunch was open to 6pm. Even though it was late in the day , we expected fresh food. The food look like had been sitting in the trays all day. The only food you could get that was was fresh was to have them make an omelette. Other than that, everything else was old. The bread/tolls were hard, the serving trays with ravioli had crusty curled ends. The serving tray with macaroni cheese had crusty ends. The tray with scrambled eggs was hard on top. For the price, It was the biggest rip off. Never going back.

    Rather disappointed in the food quality. Half of the steak could not be cut with a steak knife and the other half was chewy; halibut was overcooked with minimal sauce to moisten it. We were surrounded by diners who wanted to mingle with us when all that we wanted was a peaceful meal (tables for 2 are too close).

    Check was over $300.00 for two people. Two 1/3 glass of wine each- that it how they fill it in front of you. For more than $150.00 per person food should have been very good or excellent. Restaurant indoor temperature was much to warm.

    My wife and I have been going to the Blue Morel since it opened. One of my wife's favorite restaurants. This week we had family in from out of town and was treating them to what we thought was going to be an excellent meal. The appetizers were excellent as always, two favorites the crab cake and the grilled octopus. But the entrees were uncharacteristically aweful. My fish filet was mostly bloodline and the sauce tasted oddly. The two steaks were so salty, one was inedible. the gnocchi with mushrooms, normally delicious was also so salty our guest simply picked through it. The maitre d seemed unphased by my complaint when I asked to speak to the chef, who I was informed had left for the day. Clearly they have delevoped a quality control problem in the kitchen. The wait staff was still very good.

    First time eating here, based on the statement that this restaurant was voted in the top 10 best restaurants in the US. Of course, it doesn't say who voted that, or why, but imo, that statement is grossly overstated. The food was good, the service was very spotty, and the space, once the tables were half full, was very loud. The prices were higher than that of a similar restaurant (a side of fries $12), but it's also a hotel restaurant, so it's to be expected. Overall, it wasn't bad per se, but as somebody who enjoys fine dining, this is not it.

    We normally love Blue Morel, have been coming here for many years , so we were really surprised that our experience on Thanksgiving was so disappointing. Upon sitting down at our 5:00 dinner reservation , a bus boy came to our table to tell us to hurry because the buffet was going to close at 6:00 . When I told him that is not what I was told when I made the reservation, he just ignored my statement . People were still arriving at 6:00; so this could not be true; but, it did start our dining experience off on a poor note . The food was mediocre. This was our first buffet at Blue Morel; we normally order from the menu . The experience was so disappointing, I do not know if I will return . Also , the price was the highest we have paid in this restaurant comparing it to our dinners here in the past . Again, overall very disappointing.
