We had Christmas Brunch at Morrison House's restaurant. It was our first time at this establishment and we would definitely return - particularly for a special occasion. The service was absolutely impeccible from the minute we walked up to the door until we walked out. The staff never missed a step the entire experience. The front door was opened for us upon arrival, another staff member took our coats and checked them, and we were immediately taken to our table. The waitstaff were by far some of the most professional I've ever experienced at any dining establishment. The dining room we were in was somewhat small, only about 10 tables or so, but very tastefully decorated. The menu, an ala carte brunch, was fine - a bit limited but more than adequate with the standard egg dishes and a few of their own specialties. While the quality of everything was outstanding, the portion size was on the small side. We aren't hearty eaters and don't really like "super size" of anything, but even these portions could have been upped a bit. For example, I had the scrambled eggs and would say there were approximately three tablespoons of it on the plate. But all in all, it was an outstanding experience and we'd go there again. The prices are on the higher side - so check them out on their website before you go. In this case, it's worth it if you want excellent service and a nice atmosphere.

The food was awesome ! It's presentation & taste were impeccable. Everything about this place is very detail orientated. The restaurant atmosphere is upscale yet comfortable. I found the staff doting, yet never smothering. A superb dining experience. It's definitely on my list of places to frequent.

Wow - what a place!!! I recently found this gem in Old Town Alexandria & can't stop talking about it. The food is exquisite & the service was stellar. Check out Morrisonhouse for a menu listing. And yes there are over 1200 varieties of wine available on their wine menu.
