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... read 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!

The food, service, atmosphere, and location are all outstanding. I would encourage visitors to spend the night, too. I had my rehearsal dinner here.

The food at the Morrison House is delectable, but it's not an every week affair. It's an expensive, upscale but business casual place. Morrison is one of the Kimpton Hotels in Alexandria. I recommend going there as a treat. If you've been to Eve, then Morrison House will be a joyful respite from Eve. You'll feel pampered but not stuffy.... More

The Grille is a small restaurant. We met friends for brunch. Need to make reservations. The ambiance is nice. We were conversing so did not mind the wait; however, if we were on a time schedule, it would definitely have been an issue. The food was good but not great. It was a good restaurant.

Liked the food and the service. Grilled chicken and grilled salmon were perfect. Fresh green beans and oven roasted potatoes were exceptional. It is obvious the chef pays great attention to details. There was nothing I didn't like.

The Grille Morrison House Hotel is a lovely, upscale hide-a-way in old town. Beautifully decorated, warm and elegant with a surprisingly cozy feel. We went to the bar area where they have large, comfortable, leather chairs and amble seating. They also have a long bar with at least 15 bar stools. On the weekends they have a piano playing making... More
