    Classic Mother’s Day rip-off. Brunch buffet for a 6:00 dinner? Way too expensive for the food presented. Had to ask twice for drinks. Cleanup crew working around us while we were still eating.

    The restaurant is tied to the Westin and has the typical ambiance of a hotel-based restaurant. We were there for Mother's day breakfast (the brunch was sold-out) and it was an average experience. The breakfast menu is limited and the food is nothing special. The service was fine. I'm glad we didn't do the brunch which was $75/head (w/o alcohol) and that would not have been worth it. Don't see myself going back there in a hurry.

    Our second time at the Blue Morel when we stay at the Westin Governor Morris At Christmas we were a group of eight, and while in the main dining room were far enough away from the other tables that we could enjoy conversation Our recent stay was a group of five reunion, and again we were able to enjoy our meal, almost as if we were in a private room Food is high quality, well prepared, and very interesting Service is very attentive; timing of meal was perfect, we did not feel rushed Lovely selection of wines by the glass

    Nice resto attached to the Weston hotel in Morristown. American cuisine is well prepared with style. Wine list was above average but they were missing many of their listings. The ambience was quiet and relaxing. Service was adequate but the staff could be more attentive, especially in ensuring your wine glass was kept charged. A little pricey, but an overall nice experience.

    The entire experience at Blue More was fantastic. We checked in for our reservation and were quickly seated. At least three different servers quickly tried to make sure we had our drink orders taken. One of our servers offered his opinion and helped us decide on the bottle of wine we were looking to get. The food was exceptional as far as taste, texture, and presentation. Even after the restaurant had essentially closed, Henry took care of us and made sure we felt welcome to continue our conversation. I can’t wait to come back.

    Was surprised at how limited the menu was. All the fish entries were great. My fiancé ordered a steak that for what she got was way over priced (thin piece of meat) and not very favorable. How they expand menu in the near future and improve their meat selections

    The "chef" decided to limit the menu to only a few items because of a large party coming the next day according to our waiter. The filet was OK but the brown kale mush served with it was almost inedible. The wine list was anemic for a place called a wine bar. Thankfully our waiter was very good and even arranged an off menu cheese plate for us.

    This used to be our favorite restaurant. They’ve cut the menu to include only a few items, and the items they do have are severely overpriced for the amount of food you get. The $45 steak could not have been more than 4-6 ounces. The lobster gnocchi, while delicious, maybe had 10 gnoccis in it. Will not go back unfortunately.

    The experience was not like we have had in the past. Hopefully it was just an off night. Started with trying to pick a wine. Ordered a Sancerre and they brought a warm Pouilly. Then the figured out they were out of it. Brought a South African Chardonnay as a replacement. Totally different category. So now I’m wondering if they should call themselves a wine bar. Changed up and ordered a Pinot Grigio. After several minutes of walking around they finally found it. But it was warm as well. Got it into the ice bucket and after 10 minutes or so it was ready. Appetizer round was better all 3 appetizers came out quickly and were tasty. Somewhere in there they realized the did not bring us bread and that showed up. Very good by the way. Entree round was ok. Cooked well but not seasoned so it just was ok. Nothing that would make you say that was an awesome meal. Will try again in the spring. Hopefully things will return to what we have experienced before

    Crab cake appetizer is delicious. Enjoyed our entrees. I had halibut and husband had lamb. Rosti potatoes came out late and were not good. They are like hashed browns with a sauce on it. Did not like. Will try fingerlings next time. Really like the restaurant and wait staff is good. Will return.

    We have enjoyed Blue Morel for several years now . The service is always consistently good and our food is equally delicious . The ambience is just about right . There are other tables of diners throughout the restaurant but the noise level is fine. The whole experience is refined and wonderful . The establishment goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and cared for . We will be there again.

    Because it was Thanksgiving, the menu was understandably limited but it would have been nice if the chef could have made the sides available as an extra. However, the food was delicious and the service outstanding. We never felt rushed, but our waiter made sure that we never felt forgotten, either. Yes, it was expensive, but that was expected. I was a little unhappy to get a charge for still water, but did not say anything because it was a holiday menu and there was no reason to question the bill. We would definitely return.

    I decided to try out the new menu and chef with some friends and have to say it was disappointing. I went in knowing that it wasn't going to be the same quality and was a bit skeptical given other reviews. Starting from the beginning, the hostess and the waiter was very nice and hospitable. But it's all downhill from there... To start, the wine list by the glass and bottle are limited and bottom basement for a restaurant who charges fine dining prices. The presentation of the food is nice but the actual taste is not. Also both of our fish came out cold..a cold fish with bokchoy...not good. I made sure to give kind feed back so that they can get their act together. I want to give them a benefit of doubt given that they have been open only for 3 weeks.

    I've been going to Blue Morel (and Copeland before that!) for a decade. Great bar, big windows, beautiful dining room. This month they got a new chef - Bryan Gregg - and his new menu. Lots of good first course choices so we have to go back. The cauliflower and lobster soup was rich and delicious so I wasn't sorry I didn't try the bigeye tuna crudo or the tartare with cured yolk - but I'm going back for them. Next was the Halibut+Young Broccoli+Charred Onion+Farro+Country Ham Emulsion and Grilled Aged Lamb+Pickled Peaches+Vadouvan+Yellowfoot Mushrooms+Blue Corn. Probably the tenderest lamb I've ever had, and I didn't know what vadouvan was until I got home but it was amazing. Halibut was perfectly cooked too. I recognized a couple of the staff that had been there for years and they too were excited about Bryan and the new menu. Very attentive and friendly service. Can't wait to go back.
