The View at Morgan Hill
Oct 4th, There were four of us for dinner to see the band (Clean Slate) the band was moved inside due to the lower than expected temps. Good choice. The band was great and service was very good. We only had light fare. Maybe a one-off night for the kitchen, onion soup was extremely salty and very heavy on the beef bouillon. My wife had the harvest chicken panini and it did not include the cranberry aioli. Everything else was ok. My biggest complaint would be the size of our drinks. I have never seen an old fashion served in such a small glass it was 8-10 oz. Is this the new standard glassware? I would rather pay $14 for a decent drink than $11 for these. All in all Morgan Hill is a beautiful place and we will return.
The view is worth eating here alone. We had the truffle fries, cheesesteak eggs rolls, and crab BLTA tacos all which were very good, however our reservations were for 6:45p and we were not seated until 8:30p. We were told they were giving the staff time to catch up even though our table was cleared and ready. They were busy which we understood but after 3 tables had gotten up we still were not seated. We were looking forward to sitting by the railing to enjoy the view for dinner but by the time we were seated it was already dark outside.
Our experience was over 5 stars definitely the place of outdoor dining at it's best. The food and the service beyond our expectations. Scott was a true gentlemen and great host for us. We will definitely make this on the top places to come to.
2 complaints, once the music started could not carry on conversation and our sangria was overflowing the glass, making it messy.
First time here with the new menu. Food is more casual then previously and very good. All our meals were quite tasty and presented well.
We had a perfect meal with our family and everyone was happy with their choice of food
Service was fun and efficient
Will definitely be back to see the view. It was a misty evening but the moon was beautiful
A great way to spend an early evening. It's always fun to sit out on the patio, and the view makes it extra special. The food is good....comfortable and tasty , and it's adds to the whole relaxed vibe. Service was with a smile. A much needed mini-getaway!
Like visiting an old friend’s kitchen, the view never disappoints. It was hot as Hades out on the terrace, and we had lots of insect friends visiting, but the venue couldn’t control either and wasn’t really expected to. Service was superb.
Service has improved a lot! However, food is only fair. Guacamole had no flavor at all, nachos definitely lackluster. The entrees were acceptable at best. However, the view and basic atmosphere keeps us coming back! Have entertainment on Sat night as well.
Beautiful place to eat with a beautiful view off the deck. BUT, need to fix roof so can enjoy the outside deck when the rain comes in. We had to pack up our food and drinks and move inside. Would have stayed out there and enjoyed the rain.
They added a really nice outdoor bar to their large patio. Their drinks are fine and pour portions are decent. The food was just Ok. We ordered nachos with chicken. They were served without sour cream, without jalapeños and without guacamole. The nachos did not have much flavor either. When I asked about the guacamole I was told”they weren’t adding it today”. The sour cream was mixed as a Russian dressing and poured over the top. Let’s just say Don’t order the nachos. The burger I got was Ok except I asked for caramelized onions and got red and raw instead.
The ambiance is nice and they do have good entertainment.
Really nice view, when we arrived there wasn’t a host to greet us we waited a few mins for someone to show up. Seemed like they were maybe short staffed and the employees that were there were doing everything all at once. Our sever was very nice the food came out on time. The food was average. I ordered the patty melt. It’s a good place for drinks maybe not so much a special occasion. The best thing was the view.
First time there...and was impressed for a golf club dining experience -reasonable price and good meal and menu that gave lots of choice.
The atmosphere was great and relaxing, the views even better. I will definitely be visiting again
Rodney our waiter was great. Food was delicious.
After being seated we waited over forty minutes for our drinks. They had three servers working the Saturday before Father’s Day. We ended up with a trainee who should of been shadowing. It started to rain and took way too long to close the top outside so that you wouldn’t get wet. Because of the lack of severs they were flustered and completely unorganized. Terrible service will not be going back.
Food was above average, view is unbeatable, and the live music was way too loud
Wonderful lunch out on the patio. Yummy and beautiful
View is the best thing about this place. Super slow service. Waited 30 minutes for drinks. No apologies from staff. Won’t be back anytime soon.
Great food, service was horrible last night.
Service was a bit slow but all else was great. The patio was delightful on a beautiful spring day. I will come again and bring my community lunch group
We have been coming to The View at Morgan Hill for a few years now and have enjoyed every visit. Our last visit was on a Sunday afternoon and it was not at all busy however our service was bad. The staff was very friendly but made many mistakes with our orders and were slow to respond with everything starting from the moment we walked in. The food itself was good just not how we ordered. First round of drinks were slow and additional rounds were asked for twice but still never came. It seemed that they were between shifts or under staffed. Whatever the case was we paid the price. We really enjoy going there but after this past visit it may be some time before going back.
This country club restaurant has a patio/deck overlooking the golf course, the Delaware, and hills and farms in New Jersey. The food was better than I expected from a country club, though the prices signaled that I should have expected more. Our waitress was cheerful and polite, but remarkably inattentive. Twice she turned and left when we were clearly hoping to speak with her. Perhaps she had a hearing problem; certainly the area was not so loud that one would think that she couldn’t hear. But the meal and the view made it a pleasant evening.
This was our first time here and it was very plesant. The menu was small and not extravagant, but everything we ordered came out hot and tasted fantastic. The service was quick but not rushed. We wish it was not raining so we could eat outside and overlook the mountains. We will return to do that for sure!
Hi Matt! Thank you for the kind review. We like to keep things simple, and make them well! Happy to hear we executed. We look forward to having you dine with us again, patio season is upon us! Be sure to come out on Thursdays all summer for Party on the Patio
Although the food was mediocre (lacked seasoning and flavor), this seems like a decent spot to grab a bite after a day outting. There is a quite nice view from the outdoor area. It is on the loud side even when less than half full. Best aspect is definitely the service.
Hi Sandra, We thank you for the review-- honest feedback is important to us! You'll have to join us during summer to enjoy our patio, live music, and awesome specials.
We started going to The View several years ago, for the view in the summer. Sitting out on the deck and looking over the hills is nice and the food is good. However, we went during this most recent restaurant week and were sorely disappointed - overpaid for a shrimp gnocchi entree that had only THREE shrimp in it! I mentioned our disappointment to the server and he just said he would tell the chef - big deal. We like the Mother's Day buffet, and have gone every year, so this year I made the reservations online one month in advance and requested to be seated downstairs, because it is a nicer, more quiet atmosphere. When they called to confirm my reservation, I again stated that I wanted to be seated downstairs. When we got there Mother's Day, I was told that we could not sit downstairs - they were going to seat us at a table that was right near the front door (with cold air coming in each time someone arrived) and the farthest away from the buffet. I pulled up my reservation confirmation on my phone to show them that I made my reservations one month ago, and told them I wanted to be seated upstairs. The receptionist said she would speak to the manager, came back seconds later and said she was sorry, but we could not sit downstairs. I then asked to speak with the manager myself; the manager came and told me "Shannon" was the one who decided the seating! I don't care who decides - I asked for downstairs! They finally moved things around and seated us downstairs. You cannot tell me that all of the people seated downstairs made their reservations a month ago like I did. The food selection was good, although the warm offerings could have been a little warmer; but overall it was a nice selection for the price. Can't say I will go back again though, based upon our most recent experiences.
We went out a day early to celebrate Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, they were way understaffed and had one server handling the whole restaurant. She did surprisingly well given the pressure she was under, but I think the restaurant should have anticipated the day before Mother’s Day being busy. The food was great and the menu offered plenty of choices. The view was gorgeous. We will be back!
Hello! Thank you for the review, honest feedback is very important to us. We agree completely, we were understaffed due to a call out from an employee. Luckily our staff is trained to handle these situations, but we definitely could have used another member. Despite that, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your time and will be back!
Can’t wait to go back and eat outside on the terrace. Food and service was great!
Hi Tammyl, Thank you so much for the kind review! Our patio is something special, we are very excited for summer nights out there! Hope to see you very soon, and happy you enjoyed your experience here!
Excellent food wonderful service!
Hi EllisR, Thank you for the review, happy you enjoyed your experience at The View!
We were disappointed. It was my husband's birthday and I thought I was taking him to a nice restaurant. Instead of a dining room, we were seated in a bar and grill. I'm sure the patio would have been lovely, but it was raining. It was loud. Just not a great choice for a romantic dinner for two to celebrate a special occasion.
Hi Gale, We are disappointed and sorry you didn't enjoy your experience here. Can I ask, did you make a reservation? One of the great things about Open Table is that you can type notes when booking-- which let's us know that you're celebrating or simply want a romantic table for two! We try to go above and beyond for guests. Hopefully the weather is on our side, and you can sit on the patio, it's quite lovely out there!
Amazing food and atmosphere. I appreciate the staff being very accommodating by allowing me to bring balloons for our table prior to my reservation and placed them very nicely at our table. The service was fantastic and the view is one of a kind. I look forward to dining here again.
Hi Rosemary, we enjoyed having you and your guests and look forward to seeing you again! So pleased to hear you enjoyed everything
The food and service were very good, as always.
This was my second time here and I must say the first time I was here was better the food was better and the entertainment was also also better. The reservation request I had was for a table near the bar and we got seated at the very last table in the back which was impossible to get out of if you wanted to go to the dance floor I had asked to be moved to a different table but they said they couldn't accommodate that at this time so I'm always a three strikes kind of person so I'll give them another chance at a later date. I will recommend one thing the Truffle fries they are delicious and enough to serve two people.
We have been to Morgan hill a few times and the food has consistently been good ,the service is always outstanding. The views are amazing. Truly a wonderful experience.
We had a 5:30 dinner reservation for a mixed social/business dinner. We had to cut our discussion short at the end of the meal because there was (good) live music that made it impossible to continue with our conversation.
We had a fun dining experience with friends and a fun waitress. A good night was enjoyed by all of us.
Food good and very nicely presented
Will return to see the view.
Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for a lovely review. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your meals and that our staff was able to enhance your experience. We look forward to seeing you again!
Really nice place to have a great meal and enjoy some entertainment on a weekend night.
Thanks so much for your review JoeL! We look forward to seeing you in again soon!
Great service! We like craft beers and the View has a good selection. Better yet our waitress was able to describe the beers perfectly! All our food was nicely prepared and very tasty.
Made reservations for my husband and I this past Valentine’s day. We enjoyed a nice meal and service. The atmosphere was just “ ok”, nothing special to note the date other than offering s pre-fix menu. Very small crowd so noise was not an issue. Would go back for a date night but probably when there’s some live entertainment or the outdoor area is open just for some more of an upbeat, happy feel.
