Delicious Breakfast

The Eggs Benedict were prepared just right. The bacon was crisp. The service was exceptional. The price was a bit high.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. My wife had the pork belly and I had the bison steak. Everything was so thoughtfully prepared, and the flavors hit really unique tones. The piano player provides just the right ambiance, and the small scale of the dining room makes it very intimate. Location is great, too. There are heavy french influences, but the... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is splendid. It is wonderfully conducive to a classy, fine meal with family or friends. The service was wonderful. Frank the Bar tender was extremely friendly and accommodating. As well he is very knowledgable about the cuisine and large wine and liquor selection. Dani was a very attentive and helpful server. He took time to... More

We've lived in Alexandria for years and have never dined at the Morrison House. Always heard rave reviews. When we saw a TravelZoo promotion, we pounced. I honestly cannot say that we were "Wowed!" but it was pleasant, the food absolutely delicious, despite being modest in portion size for the price, and the environment was "old world" elegant.

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

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. At first when we saw the tiered serving platter, we were a little concerned that the mini tea sandwiches were too small,... 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
