All I can say is horrible service. Our waiter was arrogant and argumentative. The food was ok but nothing exceptional and certainly no amount of quality in the kitchen can make up for a hostile waiter. We probably racked up a $1000 tab with good...More

Was invited to meet a cousin here for dinner and knew nothing about the place. As we were driving in from the burbs first thing I found was a parking garage about 100 steps from the front door - a bonus. The space is open...More

We have been here several times recently and Morso never disappoints for lunch or dinner. Gets high marks as a restaurant that succeeds as both a destination for very good food and a friendly neighborhood go-to. The hostess and servers are efficient and savvy, leaving...More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
