“Great for wine but not Italian food”

Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe
Ranked #81 of 873 Nightlife in New York City
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 June 2015 via mobile

Lovely location opposite Rockefeller centre and pleasant to sit outside when it's warm. The wine we ordered was delicious. The gnocchi however was a little on the doughy side and a bit greasy. Not quite like true Italian food. My friend's pappardelle looked more appetising and authentic. A be on the higher end of the budget.

This restaurant is fantastic! While the night we went it was quiet - only one other table - the service, food and wine was exceptional! Started with mixed greens, black pepper fettuccine with lamb sausage and a lovely Pinot Noir. My friend and I couldn't have been more happy with the food and while quiet, it offered us a nice opportunity to catch up. As some other reviewers have said - a gem at Rockefeller Centre.

Went for some light afternoon appetizers and wine. The deviled eggs are a must try. The black truffles added a stunning addition to an old standard. You get four halves which is great to share. The pork tacos are another must try. Five of these come with an order albeit small it is another great sharing dish. We also had the cheese and charcuterie selection. Very nice presentation on a piece of shale rock and a nice selection of cheese and forced meats. We had a bottle of Knollwood Cab from Napa. At $74 I will admit I was trying to cheap out. It didn't work! I wish I had spent another $25 - $50 to get a really good Cab. The Knollwood was not that. The service was excellent attentive and knowledgeable.

Pre-show cocktails with friends. Sat at bar which had a heated comfy window seat as well.


Extensive wine list. Served at perfect temperature. Bartender was friendly. Bread served was yummy with olive oil provided for dipping.

Glasses of wine $13 & up.

Very trendy and classy.

Convenient to Rockefeller Center.
