Went to celebrate our anniversary recently. We looked at thier website prior to dinner and noticed that they had a Sunday special for prime rib dinner. We made it a point to arrive in time to take advatage of the special. Unfortunately they did not honor it even after the waiter checked with the manager. No compensation was offered, they denied that it was still on the website though it was. We ordered the prime rib dinner anyway, we paid extra for the salad, the bread was subpar, the prime ribe was mediocre and small. The waiter was attentive and professional which made a lousy meal more pleasant. We will not be going back!
We went here on May 17, 2008. It was 106 degrees and we were very worried about how hot it would be since they were at the top of an old building. After climbing the stairs (there was an elevator, but we chose to climb), we were pleasantly surprised when we were greeted by a cool blast of air when we opened the door. They placed us at a table way at the back near a bar that was only used by waiters and at first I was a little put off by it, but the cool air blowing straight on me from above was too good to resist. It turned out to be the perfect table as it was very intimate and quiet there as opposed to the busy hubbub going on everywhere else. He had the French Onion soup and found it good, but not excellent. It seemed to lack the home made croutons we had read about in other reviews in the worst way. I had the clam chowder and found it to be wonderful. It was creamy, a little garlicky and delicious! The french bread was hot and crusty with the perfect texture to tempt you to ruin your appetite. He ordered the Filet Mignon, rare, and thought it was pretty good. There was a little fat in the middle that one wouldn't expect with a filet. it was cooked rare as ordered, but it just didn't seem like a $30 steak. He said he would have expected Prime grade beef for that price. I ordered the New York Small Plate and found it plenty large for me. The steak was cooked as I ordered it and had a giant dollop of herb butter on top that I shared with Jim. There was a little gristle in the steak, but the flavor overall was very good. He had a salad as well and raved about it. There were lots of veggies and a good ranch dressing. The scalloped potatoes were okay at best. They seemed a bit undercooked and flavorless. I wasn't a fan of these. The mixed steamed veggies were good. The wine selection was good and we were glad we took a cab. Overall our experience was favorable. Our tab came to $108 which included a $40 bottle of wine. We enjoyed it and if we ever happened to be in Woodland again, we would probably go back.
Food quality has really gone down since I first went there 5 years ago. They really need to get rid of that snotty blonde that is the main host when you are waiting to be seated. If she's the one reperesenting the restaurant then its no wonder they have problems. Some of the waiters are very unfriendly although they have a couple good ones. Last time I went there my seafood pasta was cold when I got it. It was obvious it was sitting for a while. Do yourself a favor and drive to Sacramento for a good meal.
We went for an early (5pm) dinner and the place was empty. We asked if we could get seperate checks for our dinner (we had 13 in our party - it was after a girlscout event). We were using the entertainment book and explained we wanted three tickets 2 adults on one ticket, 2 adults on another ticket, and an adult & all the kids on another. THE SERVER SAID THIS WAS NOT A PROBLEM. The food came and once we ate about 25 minutes went by and I had to go find our waiter to get our bills. We reiterated how we wanted the bill broke down. The owners son then came in and said he wouldn't do that, it was against their policy. He said we had a private room (which we didn't ask for and the place was empty), which he wasn't charging us for, and that they normally don't do seperate checks at all - that he was going to take the kids meals off because they were the cheaper ones. We (all 5 of us adults) explained THAT WAS NOT WHAT OUR WAITER TOLD US and that we ordered what we ordered based on getting the meals 2 for 1. We went back and forth with this guy and he just wouldn't budge. Unbelievable! The service in general was slow, the food mediocre, the place run down, but I could have dealt with all of that, but I have never experienced such bad customer service delivered in such a rude, condescending manner. I will never go here again and I will let the girlscout council know (they take the entire theatre of 450 seats - a girlscouts only performance for plays periodically) of our experience at this resteraunt.
I have been to Morrison's many. many times in the past 15 years, and have never had a bad experience. I don't know what these other people are talking about. 3 reviews on the same day...hmmm, must have been a fluke. I would recommend this cozy place to anyone. Excellent caesar, soups & seafood. And I hear the steaks & prime rib are superb (I don't eat red meat). The desserts are great. Creme Brulee -YUM!
Growing up in Woodland everyone always talked about Morrison's being the best place to eat in Woodland, so finally I decided to go. Man was I dissapointed. The wait staff was nice, the management was running around trying to act important and the food was just ok. There are actually better restaurants in the area, and like it was mentioned before, if you do not mind driving 25 minutes, the money you lose on gas you make up with a better experience, better food, and better value in Sacramento.
In reality that is all that is nice about it, the calimari was something you would expect from Long John's Silver. The salad was plain, and the drinks over-priced. If I had extra money to invest in a restaurant in Woodland for fine dining I would definately do it since it seems to be lacking in that area.
I show up at 7:55 for my 8 o'clock reservation, do not get seated until 8:30, while people walk in without a reservation and get seated right away. The manager or host, or whoever he was, kept saying he would be right with us but managed to seat everyone else before us. Bad service from the beggining made a subpar experience worse. If this is the best Woodland has to offer in forms of dining then I understand why there are three Denny's available with in 5 miles of Morrison's. I would go to anyone of those Denny's instead of setting one foot in Morrison's.
