Although the we have been eating in the area for years, always Sunday evening pre theatre, this was our first rip to M. It was a cold blustery Nov evening and I do think that a summer dinner in the garden might have captured our attention better. This is a relatively small restaurant as part of a small but well...

The courtyard and dining hall are attractive and the wait staff efficient. However the food itself was uninspiring and somewhat bland. This was belied by the presentation which was good as were the ingredients themselves...it was the execution that was slightly disappointing as so too the combination. This was not helped by the fact that the food was slightly cold... More

The setting in the paved courtyard of the Morris House Hotel is beautiful. There is an open sided marquee over most tables with others under the stars: not sure what happens during winter months. Table service is highly professional. The menu reflects modern cuisine with portions limited in size and with some original combinations of ingredients. We thought the tastes... More

The garden dining was fabulous and the bartender was very nice! But let's get to what you came here for! What's did we eat and did we like!:... More

The restaurant had a limited but comprehensive menu. We had a cold meat appetizer plus 3 cheeses. All were good. The meats quanitity were very large and the cheeses skimpy. Drinks were good.

We stayed at the Morris House hotel right next door so we would stop in at M for a nightcap or dessert. The staff was great. The manager (I think his name is John) was very nice. Our last night there he stopped by our table to thank us for being there each night. The prices were a little high... More

We ate at the M as part of our stay at the Morris House. It is very conveniently located with seating on the covered patio and in the building next door. We were not at all disappointed. We started with a glass of wine on the patio. It is very nice — casual and open plus with live music but... More

Food was great on a limited menu, and service was pleasant. It is located in the courtyard of the Morris House Hotel, so very convenient if you arrive in the early evening and you don't know your way around. They have live entertainment on Wednesday evenings.
