Love Morris east on VERNON
Our server Rachel was attentive and knowledgeable and so friendly. I love this place. Great wine and food!!
Music was a little loud but otherwise quite nice! .
Always a great dining experience. It’s a local restaurant and the food is consistently delicious with varied choices. Service is again consistent...terrific! Staff accommodate all needs, timing, dietary, whatever!
Morris East is that happy medium between high end and low key. The food and service is great with lovely decor but relaxed atmosphere. I also enjoy the fact it isn't as noisy as other spots. If you're with a group you can actually converse with others at the table. HeatherMcA
We love this low key neighbourhood spot with comfortable benches, low noise level and delicious artisan pizza. The salads are also fabulous!
Great staff and service-Chelsey was fabulous! Food was delish!
Dined here before attending a concert at the Dalhousie Arts Centre. Very much enjoyed our meal.
This was our third time at Morris East and once again it was excellent. We enjoy the atmosphere as it is a place that feels relaxing and we can easily talk. We have tried many different items on the menu and each had been tasty and enjoyable. Thursday evenings with the music is a favourite time to visit. In addition to the food and atmosphere the staff is without a doubt the best in the city. Great to talk to, funny, friendly all while being efficient and accommodating. We love this place!
Food was fine but some portions,the linguini was far too large.We should have had a pizza.
The noise level is great with the baffles a delight to be able to talk.
But we were disappointed with the food. The scallops were overcooked and way too small, the meatballs were dry and side sauce way too sweet. The pizza was also soggy - which has not been my experience before. Very disappointing for the $250.00 we spent as a special evening out on NYE.
New Year’s Eve
Always great service and food. Love this neighborhood restaurant.
I really love the new Morris East location on Vernon Street. We went out for a family dinner, with two kids in tow, and had a wonderful time. Our server was exceptional and remarkably good with the kids. The food was delicious as always, and the atmosphere was relaxing. The kids got a big kick out of watching the chefs toss pizza in the kitchen! Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful experience and the best service from our absolutely sweet and efficient waitress Katrina. What a delight she was. We all enjoyed your wonderful food and will be back again .
Great menu. Fresh flavourful combinations of pizzas. One small issue was the salad was very oily/overdressed. This was promptly replaced with another recommended salad. Still very over dressed. But the flavours were great. The atmosphere was fun. The whole overall experience was good. And we will be back.
Our favourite place(s)... all 3! Foo? Great! Staff? Friendly. Atmosphere? Comfy! “Big” salad? HUGE!
We came because of several excellent experiences. However this time we were very disappointed. My friend’s kale salad was inedible as the kale was tough and the mushroom pizza seemed quite different than the spectacular one she had had before, skimpy on the mushrooms for one thing. The lobster carbonara had good lobster but lacked a proper sauce- cream with sherry is my suggestion ! And personally, despite loving bacon, I felt it was too strong a flavour and it overpowered the seafood completely. I know you guys can do better.
A great place for conversation over pizza and wine
Good food and service.
The food is consistently good and we appreciate that but what keeps us coming back is the service. The staff is always attentive, kind, patient and fun. They make the experience!
Our server was great and our food was amazing! I’ll definitely be going back!!
Ate here twice while visiting Halifax - food, service, ambience all great both times. Love the house-made chilli oil!
Best pizza in town!
Excellent food and service!!
Service and food was excellent.
Best pizza in town. We expect great food and great service at Morris East, and they never fail to deliver.
Server was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Food was hot and delicious.
Food took too long to get to our table. We ordered a bean dip which came at a good speed but then waited about 45 to 50 minutes for our pizza and salad .
Morris East-Vernon is one of the best things to happen to Quinpool Rd. area in...forever!!
Great addition to the neighbourhood. Nice ambience and decent value.
The food was excellent. The server was wonderful and she was the only one on hand. The restaurant was jammed packed and our server was run ragged. Every time she served us, she was wonderful, however; she could have used some help!
This was our first visit but it won't be our last. Especially on Thursday evenings when it's Jazz Night - great music. For our dinner we had two appetizers, two pizzas, and a shared dessert. Scrumptious! We also had a cocktail (Strawberry Bash(?) and a beer). My husband said the beer was very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the cocktail. Beautiful evening!
Excellent. We really enjoyed it. It was our first time and we will be back.
I made a Sunday 5pm reservation to celebrate Father's Day a week early. There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 toddlers. We arrived at our reserved table, set by a nice big window, with two high chairs (upon my request). Our server was prompt and friendly. The food did not disappoint and we enjoyed our meal very much. The kids devoured their kids hawaiian pizza! Definitely my go-to spot for special occasions!
Eaten here twice now for lunch and it’s consistently good! Their lunch size pizza says 9 inch and it’s that size of it bigger.
My family and I have been here a half dozen times. I was a little disappointed with our last visit. A server needs to carry a note pad if they aren’t good at memorizing the order: mussels, pasta, veggie pizza and mushroom pizza. After she took it, she had us repeat the whole order. Odd.
The place was busy but not overly. We waited 30 minutes between the mussels and the mains. My husband asked for a order of bread to go with his pasta. She told him the cost and he said fine. She comes back with one small piece of bread and says that’s all they have. The rest is coming. Well after he finished his meal, she comes back and says I guess you don’t want the rest of your order anymore... My daughters pizza finally arrived and looked delicious but they forgot to cut it.. so that took another 5 minutes.
The food was delicious as usual and we’ll likely be back. It was just unusual spotty service. Not sure what was going on.
Great service , food and location!
Handsome, sophisticated decor. Excellent food. Friendly efficient service on a very busy day. Live music was well adjusted to the ambience - not too loud, but clearly present.
