Very nice dinner, food was excellent. However, unless a fan of Kareoke, make certain your reservation is early enough that you will be through with dinner before those festivities start up at 9:00.

Great little grille inside the Morrison house hotel. A small boutique hotel, where they have turned some of the rooms of the original house into separate dining rooms. Cuisine is French. The chef treated us with a small welcome appetizer, followed by some sorbet to cleanse the palate. The Cesar Salad is lightly grilled. While tasty, I didn't particularly care for blackened lettuce. The Salmon entree was fantastic. Perfectly cooked and very tasty. All bottles of wine were 50% off, which made it more affordable. The room was very tightly configured with the maximum number if tables that could be fit into this space. It was a less than crowded evening, so it worked for us. I would imagine it could be a bit noisy with a full house. Service was good, although it took quite some time to get the check once we were done. Nice location for a small, intimate group, no more than four people.

My boyfriend and I went here tonight for a lovely dinner. The food was fabulous, waitstaff was superb, and it's a lovely atmosphere! My only disappointment is that they were out of antelope. Everything else we had was wonderful.

Two dinners and each was unique, and superb.

First I was invited to dinner in their private dining room, seating 12 people. Friendly perfect service (you didn't notice the wait staff, the food came and was delicous.) First Endive, apple, etc salad, next a Baseball cut of Ribeye, with Yorkshire pudding (it was a large light moist on the inside delicate on the outside popover!) and haricot verts. Done Pittsburgh style, and it was cooked perfectly. Not many know how to grill that way. They obviously have people in the kitchen that know what they are doing. Dessert was the profiteroles. Excellent pastry chef here.

Then two nights later, four of us ate in the Grille. Waiter was again perfect, friendly and welcoming but didn't linger. I like that. The decor is good, not too noisy, but enough energy. The bar/lounge next door had live music it seemed, and lots of laughter and singing. Which was good for them. We were able to talk easily, be relaxed at our meal. Perfect combination of top notch food and comfortable atmosphere. I felt as if I were at the well-staffed, well appointed gracious home of a good friend. Exquisite Beef Bourginon, Roasted Organic Chicken, Salads, Mussels. And for dessert, they even offer a creatively chosen cheese board. With a spot of apricot preserves. And a chocolate dessert worth the calories...

It's a lovely hotel but the feeling we got from the restaurant is they are trying too hard. Dining room was dark and isolated, food was so-so. If you eat there, eat in the lounge area. It's more inviting and fun on piano bar nights.
