“Everything was beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2009

We had our wedding ceremony/ reception at the Morrison House on 7/25/09. It was everything we expected and then some! All of the staff were very accommodating, and the food, ambiance, personal touches and attention, were priceless! Our families had a marvelous time, and we will definitely go back for a stay in one of their fabulous rooms some time soon! We can't say thank you enough, and recommend the Morrison House for any of your special occasions! Thanks a million to this awesome establishment!

“Grille at Morrison House was Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2009

We went for a romantic dinner and got everything we wanted. Our table was very private in a corner in the bar with soft, live guitar music. The Chef delivered the dinners personally. Best soft shell crab preparation ever. Excellent wines by the glass. Overall wonderful evening.

“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2009

We went to The Grill on the day we arrived in Alexandria expecting a special dinner. To begin with, the martini's were awful. That was disappointing. Then they were out of one fish entree we wanted so we chose the Chef's special that evening of Trout. The waitress seemed to not be very knowledgeable about the selections which were quite limited. And the service was very slow. The trout was excellent and we could not complain about the quality of the food. But it was all very expensive and not up to the standards of a first class hotel. We spent a week at this hotel and never ate there again. A breakfast of two coffees and two cereals was 18.00 not including tip. There are so many better restaurants right nearby that we ate every meal someplace else.

“Terrible experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2008

My wife and I went for dinner here for our anniversary and couldn't have been more disappointed. Food took too long to come out, our steaks were undercooked (raw) and were 1/3rd gristle. The meal was priced similar to Morton's, Ruth Chris, etc. but the quality was middle of the road. We called the following day to complain and we're told that management would return our call. Two weeks later, and still waiting for a callback - not very professional. Life is too short to waste time and money at poor restaurants - if you're looking for steak in Old Town, try Book Binders.
