Nice Afternoon Tea with a Warm, Friendly Service

Went with my sister and mother for a nice afternoon tea. This is not the Ritz Carlton fancypants tea but it is nice with comfy red leather chairs and traditional brass chandeliers fitting in that Old Town style.

The atmosphere is nice. We prefer the side room, but it was closed for a special event. We each had an appetizer: my wife had the beet salad and I had the pork belly. The salad had a balsamic glaze on the plate and had goat cheese and was delicious. The pork belly was served on slices of baguette and... More

Food was excellent. Old Town has a lot of lovely restaurants, but this is among the best. The historical Morrison House is tucked away on S. Alfred St. A gem.

My husband and I experienced a wonderful anniversary celebration last evening at the Grill. We used a Travelzoo Voucher and were warmly greeted and given great spot in the bar with a piano player. What great entertainment- not overwhelming just great background music. My husband mentioned that we would be celebrating our anniversary when he made the reservation. Our waiter,... More

This place is at the Morrison House Hotel. It is a nice place with a great atmosphere. Cocktails are always good with great bartenders.

We purchased a Travelzoo Voucher for dinner for two. We were told the voucher had a value of $75 per person for dinner. The menu we were given also stated that our dinner was $75 and we had to choose from the special menu. Well - when we decided to look at the main menu to order the exact same... More

Went to the Sunday Brunch with wife and friends. We had a lovely time and the food was great. Be aware though that the service can be very slow - almost 'glacial'. Drinks in particular can take a awhile. Even so, the Morrison House is very beautiful place.

Picked one out of the hat while in the area and it was a good pick. We arrived early in the supper hour and were the only ones there for a short time. My wife and I had been enjoying the Alexandria Old Town area and thought this would be a nice finish to the evening. Not an inexpensive place... More

Delicious high tea! Sandwiches were plentiful and delicious. Service was outstanding and we were able to take our time and maximize our visit. It was a delightful way to spend my birthday. Thank you once again for a wonderful experience!
