So very, very disappointed

For the past several years, I have counted Morrell among my few, favorite, consistently delicious restaurants in midtown. Unfortunately, with their new chef, that has changed. A friend and I went for dinner last night and found that the service was not good (no water refills, waiter disappears and does not check on how the food comes out, the wrong wine was poured and we had to send it back and request the one we h... view more

Overpriced, poor customer service

Went here around the holidays and made a reservation on opentable. Got there and was seated in a terrible table near the bathroom. Asked the hostess to move us if possible upstairs to a nicer table. Hostess said no problem, should take 10 minutes and she'd move us. Long story short we ate the whole meal down there and she never came back. The food was just ok but everything from the wine to the food was very overpric... view more

Fun enough for the view and to wind down

For what it is it might deserve higher marks but it's hard to say. From the jump: the white bread is pointless, the whole grain bread is very good. Everyone around us had the cheese plate but we didn't have time, though it looked nice. My date had the lamb burger sliders which had in my opinion a decent crunch, but were either overpowered by the dressing-like sauce on them, or underwhelmed by the lack of lamb/burg... view more

as long as your waiter isn't Michael

I would've appreciated an informed and helpful waiter in respect to selecting a glass of wine w/ the appetizers and meals we ordered. I was expecting it to be more of an authentic Italian experience with servers who suggest (or just bring out) great wines with consideration to food, weather, etc, but our server could've worked in Applebees for all he cared. No suggestions, recommendations, personality, or manners. ... view more

High-end wines and have superb charcuterie!

Though Rockefeller Plaza can be considered a bit ""touristy,"" Morrells wine bar isn't. With an extensive (and yes, as an earlier reviewer noted - expensive) wine-by-the-glass selection, it offers the experienced and inexperienced wine taster alike a chance to explore notable wines without having to purchase the whole bottle. The food could be considered an afterthought, or a way to waste time between tastings. B... view more

What a selection!!!

I'm always looking for places with amazing wine by the glass lists...and this place is tops, although it is a bit pricey (which isn't surprising!) To respond to a post on this board, you're NOT supposed to fill a wine glass ""all the way up to the top."" If you do, it does not allow room for swirling or sniffing and there's not enough aeration to appreciate the bouquet of the wine. FYI.

Disappointing

It's such a nice location, but the food and and desserts were just mediocre. There was nothing on the menu that was in any way ""unique"". The wine list is pretty amazing, but $9 for a teeny glass of wine whereas everywhere else in the city they pour the wine into the glass until it's full. I am disappointed!

The wine selection is formidable, but overpriced. The portions are small, but tasty. The staff is friendly and knows their wines. The bar only seats about 10 people, so get there early if that's your preference. Being near the rink makes it a great people watching location and draws in an unusual crowd of wanna-be powerbrokers and tourists. It is a romantic place for a date. I would not take a client here because the... view more

Great location, wine & food

Great location: sidewalk seating. Food: small rich portions that leave enough room for dessert -- sticky toffee pudding mmm.

prix fixe monday is decent deal

i went on monday with my gf for a going away dinner. She's a big wine drinker so i assumed this was the place to check out, and it was...cost $125 total for two people, 3 courses 5 wines and 1 cider. The staff was courteous. Easy to make same day reservations. Dessert was bad. Watermelon soup with lemon sorbet, but the entree was chicken breast with mashed potatoes and the citrus salmon salad was incredible. a ... view more
