Blue Morel is a bit pricey; however, the food is top quality. My cocktail was tasty, yet quite strong, although the "lemonade" that I requested was strangely unavailable. A good restaurant for a significant date - one-year anniversary or something like that.

Stick with the seafood options. I ordered the filet medium and it came out well done. My mistake. I can grill a better steak in my backyard.

What a treat! I haven't been to the old Governor Morris Hotel in 40 years and boy was I surprised and impressed. The Westin had redone the insides and the restaurant, Blue Morel, into a magnificent place and I can't wait to go back. The food was fabulous and the menu varied. All four of us found plenty to eat even though we had different food tastes and restrictions. I loved the spicy tuna tartar, even though it wasn't very spicy and my steak was fabulous! We shared the warm chocolate dessert.

We didn't realize that the hotel and restaurant had just opened after being closed for 20 days. This caused the restaurant menu to be a little limited. Having said that, the service and food were very good and it made a nice lunch date for my husband and I . We both had the tuna tartar appetizer which was delicious! My Cobb salad was very good and my husband also enjoyed the fish tacos. We would recommend any of these options. The food here is really good and the presentation is beautiful. We will be back.

We sat in the bar area so we could watch baseball playoff game. So service was not great but understandable since we were in the bar. The hamburger is about one of the best I've tasted in the Morristown area. The crab cakes are amazing here; the best I've had in the area. We loved that there are 1/2 price bottles of wine to choose from on a Friday evening. That is a great feature for sure! It's a very competent restaurant overall and the main dining room is very pretty.

A little skeptical about dining in a hotel restaurant but our misgivings disappeared within moments of sitting down at the table. The tables are spaced generously apart giving you the luxury of privacy and comfort; the waiter was instantly present to help w/chairs, get drink orders and then disappear so we could settle in. Our drinks were great (full bar!) and the menu had a large and diverse selection of entrees. The food was beautifully presented and everything was delicious. I'll be back!!

The food was good, but I don't think the overall experience was worth the price of the food or the fast pacing they put on the table.

This our second time dining at the Blue Morel and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is very relaxing - it’s a big space, yet it seems seems cozy and it’s very comfortable. The service is top notch - attentive, friendly and professional but never pushy or over bearing. The food is exceptional. I had the best duck I’ve ever had - dry aged with a medley of squash, wild mushroom and Brussel sprouts - absolutely delicious. My husband got the short Bologenses - it was unique with a bit of heat in the sauce - very nice. It’s a perfect destination for celebrating a special night. Highly recommend this dining experience!

Good crab cakes. Server got food order completely wrong. Unsure how entree and appetizer orders could be completely mistaken. Was a business meeting. Since noise level is loud and service was confused , this would not be my first choice for a meeting in the future.

Used to be near the top of my list for fine dining. No longer. Loud. Laptops on tables. Waiter asked me if I wanted a glass with my beer. Service was rushed. Food was just ok. Wine list is good, but is marked-up by more than most. A disappointing 30th Anniversary dinner celebration.

I eat here often and bring coworkers and customers. The staff, food and overall experience is exceptional. This is NOT a usual hotel restaurant, it truly is a great dining experience. One thing the hotel connection does is offer plenty of parking.

Regretfully, a large private party occuring at the same time that we were dining negatively impacted our experience this evening--as we are frequent guests, we were able to adjust.

Yearly anniversary dinner and service was very nice. Limited menu selection on Sundays but everything was prepared very well. Waiter suggested a dessert cheese option when we didn’t see one for an appetizer which was greatly appreciated.

Excellent food! Everything we had was very good. Service was great. Waiter had very good wine pairings with our meal. My only beef is I didn’t see anywhere on the website or OpenTable that the restaurant was attached to a hotel. Wasn’t a problem, I was mostly interested in the menu not location. Just thought it was odd.

Great evening out for 8 of us. Great bar and bar service for drinks before dinner. Great dining room atmosphere also and the food was enjoyed by my entire party. The service was adequate but far from expectations; low energy, disinterested, unattentive wine/beverage service.

Would have given a better rating if the portion of lobster added to the Cobb salad had been more generous. I elected to not have chicken and just lobster as an additional item; would have expected that they could have replaced some of the chicken with lobster, or even given me that option. Stingy portion and the lobster wasn’t very good. Salad was slightly overdressed, otherwise tasty and fresh.

I went to this restaurant about 6 years ago for my birthday and have been talking about it ever since. I finally went back for my birthday again and it lived up to the memory. Every dish was so tasty, unique and flavorful, with exquisite presentation. The staff was phenomenal and treated us to dessert on the house for our celebration. I definitely will not wait 6 years to go back. This dinner was the perfect way to top off my birthday!

Overpriced, disappointing. Chilean sea bass had an odd texture (husband who fishes thinks it wasn’t defrosted properly), chicken dish barely edible because it was so salty, dessert was mediocre and unexciting. Service good, wine pairings were excellent.
