    For 2 person seating, there should be more space between tables. I sat with my husband in the upper back area, where there are two sofas used as seating. It ruined our dinner being sat so close to two couples on both sides of us. It was awkward and uncomfortable sitting so close to other couples.

    Showed up to a pre fixed menu. A completely different menu was on Open Table which was misleading. Food was luke warm after waiting forever, service was poor and tip was automatically applied for only our party of 5. Would not recommend.

    The only thing that really surprised me and perhaps kept me from leaving a stellar review was what I thought was a somewhat limited menu. There weren't nearly as many options for dinner as I had expected. This was also shared by my dinner guests. The food and service overall were good and there wasn't any other specific deficiency I could point to. I would recommend this to others but check the menu first in case you are looking for something specific to eat.

    The ambience was fine and the drinks were good. I had though ordered the Sea Bass and it was chewy and tasteless. For the price of that dish, I expected it to be one of the best items in the menu. The service was just par. We had to flag down the server several time for things including things we ordered that were forgotten. I would like to give Blue Morel the benefit of the doubt here as I see they have many good reviews, but this was our first date night in years and we were not impressed.

    First time back for us in a while, and we absolutely loved the way the dining area is separated by the trees , at first we did not see a whole lot of choices on the menus but soon realized there was something for everyone and the Chef obviously planed menu this way so every dish is perfect and it was, very few of these dinning experiences around thank you again.

    30 mins to get our first drink. 2.5 hour dinner with no desert. We only saw one waiter for the entire restaurant. Dinner portion was amazingly small (had the Cinnamon Sea Bass). Swordfish was dry with what looked like wilted, old cabbage as a garnish. Sushi was good. Never again!

    My friend and I lunched here on a Thursday. There was one other table with two people and the rest of the dining room was empty. We expected it to begin filling up but no one else came while we were there. The menu was disappointing. There were too few choices and the not impressive. The waiter seemed almost surprised anyone was eating lunch there. When he did attend to our table it was almost as if he was making time to do so even though it wasn’t his job. I won’t be back for lunch anytime soon.

    A tremendous meal with impeccable service and a fantastic ambiance. What more could one want from a high-end restaurant? We met some friends here to celebrate a birthday, and the evening could not have been more perfect. Drinks at the bar before dinner were well prepared, and the barman helped narrow selections with his extensive knowledge. Dinner was a sumptuous feast that started with a tower of clams, oysters, shrimp, and chilled lobster. Exquisite! The meals were all excellent, and our wait staff was attentive without being obsequious. And then dessert was a sweet touch to finish a splendid meal. I highly recommend this venue for your next celebratory meal. You will not be disappointed!

    I'm usually hesitant about restaurants in hotels, but this one is very much worth a visit. The sushi and oysters were allfresh and lovely. The crab cake was similarly excellent, perfectly fried and the chef really let the crab flavor dominate over spices. The other dishes were good but a little less impressive, though we have pretty high standards. The service was exceptional. We interacted with three servers, and all three were incredibly lovely and animated, and our main server was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. Next time we're in the area we would happily go back, especially for the raw bar!

    I have been going to Blue Morel for a long time and was highly disappointed in my dining experience last night. First we had no waiter. No one even approached our table until finally we flagged down a waiter after 30 mins. Our food was bad at best. We all had the halibut and it was so dry and overcooked that is was hard to eat. So extremely disappointed in everything!!!! Not sure I will go back.

    We met friends who were traveling from Arizona here for lunch to celebrate two birthdays. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. The chicken dish was out of this world and the burgers were very good as well. The manager allowed us to bring in a cake to celebrate. Even though the restaurant closed at 2 they allowed us to stay for about 45 additional minutes.

    Great place for in a hotel. I usually shy away from in hotel restaurants. Nice dining room could be noisy on a busy night. Food was excellent we tried the beet salad, country ham, scallops and veggie tart; all were very good. Dessert was bread pudding and pineapple upside down cake; they were good. I would recommend

    Food was good but not exceptional. Portions were on the small side, especially appetizers. Entree’s only had one vegetable whereas most restaurants provide two. Side orders of an additional vegetable were $ 10- $ 12. Server tried to leave a cancelled serving of wine on the bill. Ambiance was good. Value was not there for costs.

    Always excellent! Every dish was prepared perfectly! Portions perfect to finish. No leftovers. Salmon was creamy, scallops sweet, halibut perfectly seared and lobster gnocchi were on a large plate ( appetizer on menu). Madeline dessert perfect to share amongst 4. Will be back for more. Highly recommend. Forgot to mention the juiciest burger. I always ask for the bacon jam on the side. Can be a bit overwhelming. Enjoy!
