Contemporary American
At Morrissey's, couched within the reimagined Adelphi Hotel, wood fired pizzas and artful crudos spread across tables filled with good friends, good conversation, and great drinks. Local beer, craft cocktails, and a top-notch wine list complement an array of small plates and shareable dishes. The atmosphere reflects John Morrissey's rugged spirit, and his vision of Saratoga's gleaming future.

Local, sustainable ingredients are transformed into remarkably creative dishes for breakfast, lunch & dinner seven days a week..and join us for our ever so popular brunch on the weekends in our stunningly designed conservatory.

John Morrissey gave up the ghost while sitting at the old Adelphi Hotel bar. We dedicate this establishment to his spirited history, and we think he'd have a damn good night here with us.

I will start by saying that our server was excellent and very personable. The appetizer (steak tartare tacos) and our diner (filet and delmonico) both delicious. We opted for the blackberry pie for desert which was a bit odd tasting and underwhelming. The mint ice cream tasted like it came from Stewart’s, I suppose I was expecting something a bit more homemade and not green.
The biggest disappointment was with the reservation and seating. Even though we had made reservations several days prior, our table was not ready when we arrived. We were told 5-10 minutes, after 10 minutes they tried to convince us to sit outside in 40 degree temps, we declined, 10 minutes after that they tried to get us to sit at the bar, this was a special event for us, do we declined that as well. The next 10 minutes was spent with the hostess saying that there system had messed up and overbooked and generally trying to avoid eye contact with us as we sat in the lobby. We were never even offered an apology. I understand that mistakes do happen, but the 30+ minutes spent just sitting in a lobby while paying the babysitter and basically having them be annoyed that we didn’t want to sit outside in the cold was a bit frustrating.
Luckily the food and our amazing server made up for our first impression.

Food was blah and not the quality we were expecting. Our server barely engaged with our table, and never offered refills on waters and coffee. The atrium was lovely to dine in, but sadly that was only the truly nice thing about our meal. Unfortunately we chose to entertain out-of-town guests here and we all left underwhelmed.

the food was good but the service was horrible. from the very moment we checked in when the host disappeared to find us a table to when we finally got seated in the bar area and our server seemed to be overwhelmed and more interested in talking to the guy next to us who apparently was somebody and knew everyone.

We had an amazing dinner three weeks ago but was underwhelmed with brunch. Did not care for really any of the food-lobster bisque tasty fishy and not rich and creamy. Eggs Benedict and ham lackluster as well.
We may try dinner again but not brunch.

The food was excellent and our waiter was amazing. Overall a decent experience but we waited almost 30 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. I know the restaurants in the Adelphi are shuffled around right now due to COVID, but we were seated in a back room area (kind of resembled a conference or event room) which provided for a weird ambiance.

Called twice to make a reservation and with no return call made it online. Slow service. Hair on the floor. Not swept. Not clean. Ordered the corn beef sandwich. Dry! Nothing on it but chunks of corn beef. Fries were cold.
So disappointed! Totally embarrassed to have invited people to join me there.

We had such a great experience, having gone in this past Sunday for dinner, drinks and desserts while we were staying at the hotel. The staff was amazing. Our waitress, Cassidy, was kind, considerate, attentive and simply wonderful. The food was great and the drinks were as well. Everyone was so amazing. We will be back!

While the food here was tasty I don't think I'll return for brunch. The service is pretty bad. We stood in front of the hostess for a good 5 minutes, no exaggeration. She was on the phone helping someone make a reservation, but didn't look at us to acknowledge our presence. She kept her face down and even blocked us from her peripheral by covering her eyes. It was super odd. Eventually two more reservations came in behind us and she didn't acknowledge any of them either so all of us stood around waiting to be helped.

It took 15 minutes for our waiter to come take our drink order too, again not an exaggeration. I only know this because I shot a text to our babysitter when we were seated and sent her a second message letting her know it might be longer than we expected b/c we hadn't been seen so I had a time stamp to actually see when we had finally been seen. After the waiter arrived, he would only take our drink orders even though we had plenty of time to know what we wanted. It took another 10 minutes to get our drinks. It was like this for everything. From start to finish, my husband and I were at the restaurant for 2.5 hours...for brunch.

The food was great. We had a hard time deciding what we wanted b/c the menu was SO interesting. I almost wish brunch could be take out. The wines by the glass are overpriced. I appreciate good wine, but the pours didn't hit the emblem marker in the glass so either we got the last bit in the bottle and the bartended didn't want to open a new one or he wasn't paying attention. I would have said something, but we had already been there so long I didn't want to risk waiting for a better pour.

It was unfortunate. We were excited to try it but wouldn't go back.

Kitchen was either under-staffed or overwhelmed.

We went with a party of five to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. We ordered mostly appetizers, including the fondue. We did order one or two main dishes as well for everyone to pick at. Every dish was outstanding and the cocktails were great! We had a phenomenal time!

Ordered a bottle of Prosecco from Conegliano, Italy from the menu while seated at the bar. Bartender opened the ‘house’ Prosecco, which is of an inferior quality, without first showing us the bottle and tried to pass it off
as the bottle we had ordered. We rejected it and ordered a glass of wine each, which ended up being ‘on the house’. The mushroom crepe was tasty but the sushi was not the freshest, by any means.
Overall experience not that great.......
Doubt we will ever return.

The setting was beautiful, the food and wine were good. The service was cold. The server took our order but then disappeared and never came back to check. We had a long wait for the food, during which our server was nowhere to be found and all the others vigorously avoided eye contact until someone else finally brought out the food. Our briefly showed up to take the desert order but did not offer to show a desert menu or offer any suggestions. For a restaurant of this caliber one expects more attentive and knowledgeable service.

Celebrating our 27th anniversary and we went to Saratoga to celebrate. Salt and Char was under renovation but the app had us to next to to Go to dinner and still be able to utilize the limited menu from salt and char. The waiter seemed overwhelmed because the restaurant was extremely busy and crowded. When he set the menu down it wasn’t the one for salt and char that I was looking forward to when I asked he seemed bothered that I wanted their menu, but he got over it. He was very confusing explaining menu choices. For the food and the quality the prices were high. Bad experience!!! I would not go back

J am a local and have been loyally supporting this restaurant since it reopened. First off the manger or other employees at this point don’t even act as if they know me or that I am loyal customer. Now that it is more crowded they show no attempt to accommodate me as a regular to find me a table. I was just there to drop in and sit outside there were 5 empty table snd they wouldn’t seat me because I don’t have a reservation. Nor did they care that I am a regular or even notice. It seems it would be wise for them to keep some free table to accommodate locals dropping in. It is not fun to live where we have reserve in order to spontaneously have lunch or dinner especially on a Tuesday.

All was good, but the service was slow. Was going to see a movie and had to leave dessert uneaten because the mains took so long (almost an hour.) No excuse either as the place was practically empty.
