Thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. The chorizo omelet was just slightly spicy, but delicious. Chile relleno soufflé omelet was excellent. The same for the French toast with berries and the Belgian waffle. House coffee is hearty. You order at the counter but the wait staff was very courteous and friendly in getting extras. There was plenty of room between tables and the noise level is surprisingly low.

Prime time on a Friday evening and we were promptly seated at an outside table as requested.
We have and will continue to enjoy Morsey’s creative dishes.
Unfortunately, I continually have to downgrade the experience due to lackluster service.
I was optimistic that our server was going to be better than we have come to expect. But, once the food was delivered we entered the “Bermuda Triangle” and could not get the additional bottle of wine we wanted. The wine we had been served in the beginning was no longer available. By the time our server returned for a substitute order, the mood had changed and we asked for our checks.

This restaurant is well worth supporting.

Service was awful - there were only 3 other tables of people in the restaurant and it looked like 2 people working the house but it took forever for a waiter to come and forever to give us the check. The food was just okay - selection was disappointing

Bloody Mary was awesome, the bacon was "on point", and the star of this brunch was the Smoked Salmon Omelette Souffle....best I've ever had, and I've been eating Omelettes for 45 + years! A little pricey, but you pay for what you get...and after all, this IS in Los Altos.

We sat outside and so the noise was as expected. The food was very good. I’d eaten here before at lunchtime. The breakfast/lunch menu was varied and interesting. The meal was delicious.

Food was excellent. Service wasn’t bad, but it appeared we were breaking in a new server. We ate outside, so couldn’t judge noise level inside.

Food was good, and staff was very nice. We came in at 8:30, with a reservation, and we were clearly being rushed to get out of there from the beginning of our meal. By 9:00 we were the only table left and lights were being turned off and it was obvious we were inconveniencing the staff. I don’t blame the staff, as I have waited tables and know what it’s like to want to go home at the end of the night, but then I don’t think reservations should be allowed at 8:30, if it doesn’t make sense for the business to be open that late. I would eat here again, but much earlier next time.

Food was good, seating ambiance is fine. I said fair for service b/c you order at the counter and the food is brought to you, minimal service is provided. Price is comparatively elsewhere. Will definitely return.

Came for dinner on a quiet Friday night. Excellent burrata, which we had caprese style. We had appetizers as shared small plates. Everything was delicious although could have used a touch more salt. Great service, we want to try brunch next time.

The food was late, appetizers came out after the mains, the service was terrible, they did not bring all the items we ordered, and they overcharged us on the bill (3 salmon dinners versus 2). When we politely mentioned this to the server, he did not seem to care. The worst Mother’s Day experience at a restaurant I have ever had. We will never go back.

Morsey’s has an excellent chef. The food is delicious and presentation impeccable. We went for Mother’s Day dinner. My husband had steak and lobster that was yummy. I chose a vegan option that was also excellent. The reason to go here is the food quality

Came here for Mother’s Day, ambiance was great and the experience itself with the kiddos was excellent.

Service was okay but felt like I was inconveniencing the waiter with all my questions and also the questions my kids had regarding beverages etc.

Food I was really excited about he concept and ordered an omelet however when it arrived and for the price it was, the food did not live of to the standard of what was expected and as well the cost. My son did love his burger so no complaints from his end.

Best part of experience again was the atmosphere and experience with the kiddos. They loved it, I personally wish the food was better and the waiter more patient.

Would we go again, sure but will order something different and hopefully different waiter.

We thoroughly enjoyed the many wonderful evenings we have spent at Morsey's Farmhouse: the food absolutely delicious, prepared to an excellent standard every time, and paired with the most welcoming atmosphere and friendly servers resulted in an extremely pleasurable dining experience.
In particular, their famous Buffalo Milk Burrata really lived up to its fame, tasting out of this world. Last time, we enjoyed the lobster ravioli and fillet mignon, which were both very delicious and high end European standard. We can't recommend this restaurant enough.

Tried this restaurant based on yelp reviews. Limited menu. Our sandwiches consisted of a large hunk of rather tasteless chicken with condiments that made the bread soggy.
