                                                                It would be nice if their menus and website identified the days/times of when brunch, lunch and dinner is served. The lunch menu on the website has a small selection of brunch options, but doesn’t state that it is only offered during the week, Tuesday-Friday. I had a reservation on a Sunday for 1:30pm and wanted to get lunch, so I was a little disappointed to find out when I got there that lunch was not an option, only brunch. Besides that, the food was good - curly fries were delicious. My only complaint with the food was that the seafood caesar salad needed more dressing since it is prepared on a romaine lettuce heart. Some pieces of the salad were completely dry.

                                                                Sunday brunch was busy. The Diet Coke came from the bar and was flat. Coffee was bitter and not hot. Refills poured from another carafe that did not keep the coffee hot. Turkey and bacon panini had a little kick to it and the homemade potato chips were overcooked. Avocado toast was only one slice of sourdough bread with two sunny side up eggs. Menu offered something for everyone but would try other places before returning to Morea again.

We tried both types of flights (mimosa and bloody mary) and they tasted great so we ordered another round of the mimosas. For my main meal, I got chicken and waffles which was so yummy and filling. By the end I was in a food coma. Our server was also the best - so fun and attentive! And then to top it all off, the music choices were a perfect mix of top hits and throwbacks which gave the whole place a chill & fun ambiance.

                                                                Service by Vegas was phenomenal. She was really great. Fig/pear flatbread and lobster bisque apps both very good as well as chicken Marsala and mushroom risotto with steak. Short rib ok, but didn’t “fall apart” as expected. Maybe it needed to be cooked longer. Taste was still ok. Lovely ambiance.

                                                                I ate brunch at Morea. I had chicken and waffles. I didn't like it at all. The waffles tasted rubbery and the chicken was overcooked, it was dry and hard. My food was served to me lukewarm almost cold. My friend had the eggs benedict and avocado toast, she liked her food. The service was great. Overall, I don't have to ever go back.

Great menu catered to vegan, pescatarian, or meat lovers. The serve did mess up the order but they promptly fixed it. Whenever I return, I will visit again.

Literally I felt rushed from the time we walked in the door and on top of that I don’t think the staff were welcoming or friendly at all other than our waitress. Had it not been for my family and it being Easter I would have walked right back out the door and went elsewhere. Sorry I ever stepped foot in this place.

We ordered a nice blend of pizza, Mac and cheese, steak which was perfectly prepared and then delicious healthy options- lots of salad and cauliflower dishes. We were all blown away by the night. The service, food and ambiance. A rare gem of a place. I don’t usually write reviews but this was a find! Can’t wait to go back!

The food is bland and the service is barely acceptable. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant. There are much better restaurants in the area.
