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!

Best sea bass in N.J. I have been here on several occasions and I always get the sea bass. It never disappoints! The staff st this restaurant are superb, friendly and so accommodating. Give this restaurant a try it is worth every penny.

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.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary and we were surprised by a delicious chocolate ganache dessert with blackberries in no the house. . We ordered the crab cakes, crispy Brussels sprouts which may be the best we’ve ever had, eel sushi, clams on the half shell, and Caesar salad. The food and service were excellent!

Dreadful experience, Food ok, service haphazard and at times offhand, repeated reminders we were eating in a hotel - they started setting the table beside us for breakfast at 8.05 pm on a Saturday, the staff had no idea how to try and make the evening anyway special for us, we live in Morristown/Madison and eat out most Saturdays this was the poorest experience of 2019 thus far - Sorry we went

This restaurant misses the quality mark in every category. The food is bland and the service is somewhere between overbearing and rude. Waitress stood over my back surveying our table several times, never smiled and seemed annoyed upon her first greeting. The lamb, tuna, sea bass and chicken were all bland and the plates were dull and kackluster. The octopus was delicious but served in a dark deep small bowl.
This is a place to skip. We would not return.
We all cook ourselves and appreciate fine dining. The prices were high however this restaurant doesn’t deliver.

The oysters were wafer thin. East and west coast! They should have been embarrassed to serve. Short rib pappardelle was undercooked, not close to al dente. Salmon was delicious.

Great food and staff is very attentive. Open area so parties that are particularly noisy can be disturbing to some diners but the food is top notch.
