“I wish the service had been better....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Dined at Morso on Friday evening. We had planned to meet friends for happy hour by 6:00. They had a reservation and were already enjoying wine and appetizers while waiting for us when we arrived at 5:55. We seated ourselves and the owner breezed by the table. Knowing it was still just before 6:00 we inquired if we could still take advantage of Happy Hour. She very curtly told us NO! And walked away. We ordered eggplant rolotini, peel and eat shrimp and mussels, as well as a glass of malbec. The food and wine were tasty and nicely presented. We had to go to the bartender to ask for clean plates and cutlery for our companions to share the appetizers. The service was overall not attentive at all. We had to ask to have plates removed, even though several of the servers were passing through the dining room empty handed on their way back towards the kitchen. There was no sense of warmth or "glad to have you with us" tonight.,,we felt like we were an imposition to the servers. Our companions commented on the poor service as well and said that they doubted they'd return. That is a sad commentary. The atmosphere and location is great. The potential for long standing success is certainly there....the servers AND owner might want to take note of the visitors to Morso to help cement return visits.

“Great bites for grownups”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Must be over 21. The view is spectacular whether you enjoy it on the way to the door, or strike a warm day and get a table outside. Inventive small dishes - if you are sensitive to pepper, ask for it mild - most dishes have more than a sprinkling! The mussels were a bit strongly flavored, but tasty. The chicken salad was plenty for two or more - I had it for lunch the next day. Folks can be loud (it is a bar) so if you are sensitive to that, not the place for you. I LOVE their on-line reservation system.

“Great wine bar & location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great wine bar right across the street from the end of the harbor. Nice spacious deck area and great views of the harbor. Our server was very welcoming and friendly. Allowed us to order off the happy hour menu despite coming in right at the 6PM cut off. Great appetizers and wine selection.

“Fantastic food and a great wine selection.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I made a reservation there for Valentines Day dinner. The atmosphere was wonderful and comfortable. Fortunately we were given a larger table with more comfortable chairs but by the door. Even so the service was great and the food was 5 star. Definitely recommend Morso. Will be going again soon. Oh, great for happy hour and wonderful view in Gig Harbor.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Experienced our first late lunch at Morso and while it was quiet at that time of day, it was a lovely experience.

Nice wine selection overall, which also includes a few wine cocktails, and a nice selection to sample from. The menu is seemingly light, but delicious. We tried a "salad on the side" with a nice balsamic vinaigrette, the soup of the day (chicken tortilla), the margherita flatbread and the lemon polenta cake (very nice and not overly sweet). Staff was attentive but not intrusive, friendly, and knowledgeable.

I see us going back to Morso numerous times...
