The View at Morgan Hill
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.
Excellent for restaurant week. Accommodating server. Lights could be less bright...not an intimate setting, more like a banquet hall with regards to lighting. Loved the food! Will be back!
Delicious food great service, they had live music the night we dined there.
Unfortunately, I have nothing positive to say about my experience at The View. The server was pleasant enough, but unprofessional. There was a long hair wrapped up with the silverware. The pot stickers appeared to be frozen and should have been thawed before cooking. The sliders were overcooked and lacked sauce, the fries were bland, and the panna cotta had the wrong texture.
We have been to the View a few times and the food was always very good. Saturday night this was not the case. The shrimp appetizer that we have had each time we were there was spicy and not good. The chef used curry or should I say over used and we could not eat the slaw, one small taste had our mouths on fire for a long time.
I ordered the balsamic chicken and the chicken was very dry and burnt. It was over cooked to begin with then seemed as if made hours ahead of time and quickly reheated.
It was a very bad meal, we were extremely disappointed.
There was a group of ladies who were at a table enjoying themselves and were very loud. I am not sure why they were not put into the dining room that did not have others in it. They were very disturbing to everyone seated in the bar area dining room.
The steak was over cooked and our waitress wasn’t very friendly/ didn’t care.
We were very disappointed. The piano music was not "dinner music". It was a very loud and annoying, jarring jazz. Although the restaurant was not crowded in the least, I had to retrieve my own drink from the bar after our waitress disappeared. This was a birthday celebration and we had high hopes, but the night was a complete letdown. We will not be returning.
We live in the area and and visit often. Just had my wedding there and everything was outstanding! The food and beverage director made our day even better that what we could have expected. The restaurant/bar manager crafted signature cocktails that went over very well with our guests! I highly recommend this venue!!!
Good food, good service, reasonable price, can’t go wrong with it!
Went for a birthday brunch but disappointed with the brunch buffet options
The menu was so disappointing. I thought it was a fine dining establishment. But the features on the were burgers and sandwiches. Nonetheless we ordered entrees and they were just ok. It’s a really pretty restaurant... it’s too bad everything else was mediocre. I’d do it again for happy hour... but not a business dinner with clients.
I have been here many times but the service was horrible recently! There were 8 of us and I understand that alone can be difficult for one server to handle but there were too many things that went wrong. It took about 20 mins to receive a drink - every time they were ordered. One person never got her meal because the server never put it in (by then she declined the meal). It took over 30 mins to receive our checks and about another 30 mins for everyone to pay. Granted they were separate checks but she kept ringing things up wrong as well as taking a while to give us the checks in the first place.
I will go again, however, and hope that this was just an unusual situation. They have great food and drinks.
Filet minion was leas than 6 ounces and was relatively bland. Chef gave extra green beans to make up for the size but they werent all that good. It was adequate but not really worth going out for
The food and the service were very good. I ordered a dirty martini that was not very good at all. It tasted very watered down and it was served without any olives. I would return for the food only. The drinks were lacking.
Better food and service.
This place has great food and service. Getting better every time we go. They have entertainment at night. Looks like fun.
The view and the service was great. The food was not good.
The View is a great restaurant. The food is good and also priced fairly. The views are impeccable on a nice early early evening.
It was kind of rainy day but we still got to eat outside. The server was very friendly and attentive and the food was good. The patio is very inviting.
The service and surroundings were excellent. The food is mediocre, at best. The guacamole appetizer was good, but certainly not freshly made. My filet was over cooked and tiny, and the “loaded baked potato” seemed like it had been sitting under a heat lamp. It was so dry and the cheese was caked on - definitely not freshly melted. I would return only for cocktails and apps.
There isn’t that much to choose from on the menu and there is no kids menu. I had the Apple salad it was OK. I probably won’t be back.
Had a quick dinner at The View. Had simple burgers and cheesesteaks. Both were very good with great service as well. The wine was reasonably priced as well. For sure I would recommend to visit again.
Food was very good and the view from the terrace was terrific. Was very disappointed with the beer and wine selections
