Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe
Food was exceptional we did a combo of small plates and shared the ink pasta with baby clams and choc molten lava cake
Many wine by glass choices. Would return.
Very nice dinner. Restaurant is trendy. My only negative comment is that they didn’t have paper disposable menus during the current Coronavirus issues.
Nice, quiet environment, good service and good value.
A great place for a work or social meal or drinks. A better deal than the other over-priced options in Rock Center. A rare quiet relaxing place in Rock Center. The salads are a good healthy option
Our server was excellent and he was able to make some recommendations when items were not available. The food was excellent. We enjoyed everything that we ordered. The only area that I did not give full marks is value just because it was a little spendy. That cannot be helped due to the location alone (Manhattan).
We will definitely come back if we are ever lucky enough to be in the neighborhood again.
Food was delicious, the service was rushed
Wine bar has a great selection of glass pours and a creative selection of food to go with it. Server was very accomodating, bringing samples of several wines so we got the one we liked. For Manhatten, prices are fair and it makes a very good pre theatre dinner
Amazing menu. Quaint atmosphere. Tremendous food execution.
Even though we were the first to arrive for lunch service, they sat us at a table that was right near the door to the service station and bathroom. There was constant traffic back and forth, which affected our experience. Otherwise, the food was good and the restaurant beautiful and cozy. I’d make sure I reserved a particular table next time.
Great place for a Friday business lunch. Good food and quiet enough for good conversation.
The location and ambiance were perfect! We wanted a view of the Rock Center Tree so we sat at the Bar. We were celebrating my Mother's 91st Birthday and the staff was amazing! Complimentary beverage and all the staff members wished her a happy birthday and were so incredibly attentive! Perfect evening, I highly recommend Morrell Wine Bar for special occasions!
Great service! Fresh delicious pasta dishes. Waiters all very knowledgeable about the wine offerings.
First time here for dinner. My wife and I were very pleased. Just off Rock Center and the tree, but inside was comfortable and quiet. Food and service was excellent. We will go back.
Food was nice well presented and the staff were also very good, some items not available but other than that a pleasant experience.
Beautiful location and you can see the Christmas tree from inside the establishment. Service was excellent. We ordered a chopped salad which was fresh, but the champagne vinaigrette was a little too sharp. The fusilli with lobster was quite good, but the tortellini with crispy serrano ham was completely overcooked; unfortunately it was a plate of mush.
Horrible experience. We were at the bar the day before and had a great salad and wine so we decided to return the next day for dinner. Big mistake! The food was not good and the service was horrible . Very disappointing
So accommodating and had a great dinner upstairs. Very fun outside w/ the beautiful tree and Christmas displays!
We had the most wonderful lunch. Everyone was so relaxed and friendly. It was a perfect Christmas Eve meal. Great Atmosphere!
The heat was cranked up when it was 54* outside and it was so hot we had to leave. The guy said he couldn’t turn on AC to cool things down. This is something that needs to be addressed by the restaurant bc we ended up having to go elsewhere unfortunately.
We go to Morrell's every Christmas season when in town to see the tree. This year the food was outstanding! The service was competent - the waitress seemed distracted or possibly new. The wine we ordered was not available, and it was ultimately handled well but only after what seemed like confusion by the staff. The alternated choice was exceptional. The only problem we had was their handling of our Open Table reservation. While they acknowledged the reservation and call us by name, they called my cell phone while we were there, asking why we hadn't appeared. Then they reported us to Open Table as no-shows, requiring extra work emailing to take care of it. This is the 2nd year in a row this has happened - clearly someone is not checking in the resv. correctly. Not a big issue but an annoying end to an otherwise very good dinner.
Small nice place inside very high-priced small glasses of wine for a high price but it is right across from Rockefeller Plaza. Good service
Terrible service waitress just left and was reassigned halfway thru dinner. New waiter showed up and was totally out of sync. Not a good night.
Lovely moderately priced lunch special. Gorgeous service. Perfect food. Good value in that area.
This place is right in Rockefeller Plaza and a welcome respite from all the commotion of the holiday crowd...however, it is pretty noisy inside as well. They do have an outdoor patio where you can have drinks even in the winter. The food is excellent.
While the food was generally great, there were a couple of issues with our meal. First and foremost, when I received a call to confirm the reservation I informed the host that my girlfriend has a severe apple allergy. However, when we received our appetizer there were apples present. Luckily she did not have a reaction, but I found this to be highly inconsiderate. Second, at one point in our meal our waiter left and no one came over to our table to take our meal order for over 15 minutes.
Beautiful view of the tree and great location but stick to a drink at the bar... the service was slow and subpar!!
Wonderful server and service! Brought some rose as a birthday celebration starter on the house and enjoyed every drop of wine and every bite of my many plates! Yum yummy!
Birthday and Christmas
My favorite Rockefeller Center restaurant! Never disappoints!!!
Bit noisy but the Tree is up next door and the place was packed Food great perfect for a light dinner before a Broadway show
Enjoyed a delicious meal before a show. Great food and service.
great stopping point after touring Rockefeller Center. Large variety of wine (but no Mascato.) Waitstaff was great at finding me a good alternative though. Would definitely go back. Get reservations though. It was packed around 8 pm
It was just ok. Nothing special.
The food was delicious, the service awful and the mixed drinks minimally served.
My friend and I had a wonderful time! The food was great and everything was just as we needed! Thank you!
Excellent food.great atmosphere. A bit warm upstairs
You can’t beat sitting at the bar at lunch, during Christmas, overlooking the tree in Rockefeller Center with family! Great wine and drinks, super bartender, very good food with a varied menu. We will be back!
If you love wine and the look of a beautiful bar, this is the place to go. Right at the heart of Rockefeller Center, a cozy rest and bar with the best wine selection by the glass in the city
Love this restaurant... I've eaten here for both lunch and dinner... Great location, great service, and fantastic food... 90 wines by the glass... highly recommend!!
Needed a place to meet with a client for lunch near Rockefeller and this restaurant was perfect. We decided to do the prefix lunch menu. The food was delicious and the portions were great for lunch.
