Celebrating both Halloween and my wife’s birthday, we stopped here for cocktails before our dinner reservation at another nearby restaurant. Cocktails were great, service was great and the host Doug was phenomenal.

Great atmosphere and way to start the evening

I have now been to Morris twice now and love everything about it: the drinks, ambiance, and food! Not to mention the staff are very friendly, check in, and are able to answer any questions you might have about the drinks. I've had gin, tequila, and pisco drinks from their menu (sound like a lush!) and all have been incredible. Thus far, I think the Peruvian moquito is my favorite. They are also able to make you drinks on the spot, if you tell them your preferred liquor/ liqueurs. Their fromage board is also simple yet so tasty!

There was a vibe in the air that my co-worker and I weren’t welcomed. We got there around opening 5:00 so it wasn’t a lot of people there.
I mentioned we wouldn’t be there long and if possible to be seated outside. There was absolutely no accommodation. The waiter, can’t remember his name was short with us when asked about cocktails. We stayed for two drinks each and left.
Of course one half of the outside seating was still empty.

Drinks are great, crab artichoke dip was good but should have been warm. The service was pretty awful. Had a reservation for the inside at 8, and during check in they sat a group of girls in front of us inside. Checking in and told me they had no tables inside and had to sit on the patio. Drinks took roughly 20 minutes each time to come, I believe they were prioritizing the people inside. It’s a beautiful bar, and has a lot of potential.
