Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro Review:
Morels French Steakhouse and Bistro fuses traditional steakhouse fare with a French twist. Executive Chef Eric Bauer masterfully creates a well-rounded menu. Bauer serves traditional French specialties with modern elegance and a few updated, Americanized dishes, which he makes his own.
At Morels, feast on USDA certified wet aged Midwestern beef steaks, order from a selection of over 30 artisanal cheeses or delve into an iced seafood bar. Morels is a great place to dine with a variety of menu items, good service and aesthetically satisfying décor.
As you pass the foyer and enter the restaurant, a full bar and lounge area leads to the large outdoor patio overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Inside, savor the clean, classically elegant main dining room with ornate chandeliers from Murano, Italy and paintings created by Thomas Cannon. Cozy booths line the walls while dark wood and vanilla-colored chairs service dining tables. Dark wood detailing unifies the restaurant throughout.
Begin your culinary journey with hors d'oeuvres like prime beef tartar. There is a bar fare menu with grilled American wagyu sliders, seafood bloody mary, and crispy blue cheese olives.
For starters, choose from a wide array of soups and salads like Scarborough Farms' beets two ways, lobster and burrata, or a classic baby iceberg lettuce wedge served with shaved shallots, fresh chervil and a creamy, flavorful blue cheese dressing. Classic French rolls are served with butter and olive tapenade.
Dining room entrées include various meat and seafood items such as seafood tagliatelle pasta and paella. There are several cuts of steaks available including New York sirloin and bone-in rib eye, prepared to perfection and served with your choice of a béarnaise sauce, chasseur, au poivre or chimichuri.
Signature dishes include dry-aged rib eye and a 32-ounce côte de boeuf carved tableside. The côte de boeuf is served with confit of barbecued onions, a tender, light asparagus rissole, and sauce chasseur.
Sides include amazing pommes frites, crispy and flavorful, served with a truffle mayonnaise. Creamed spinach is topped with bubbly parmesan cheese and the chef's mac & cheese with country ham is creamy, cheesy and delicious.
Desserts include a macaroon cart served tableside, vanilla profiteroles served with hot chocolate sauce, pistachio soufflé (allow 25 minutes) and a sinfully delicious Gianduja peanut bar served with milk chocolate mousse.
Feast on items like sea urchin, a variety of fresh oysters and other delights from the iced seafood bar. Choose from over 30 artisanal cheeses from the fromagerie or from hundreds of wines from the extensive wine list.
The 24-bottle enomatic system allows guests to sample rare, elusive wines by the glass for a fraction of the bottle cost. Wines offered vary, but can include Screaming Eagle '04, Colgin Cariad '04, and Bryant Family '01. The enomatic two, four and eight-ounce disperses a wine of choice electronically for the perfect pour.
"By using this system, we are able to open high-end bottles of wine, such as the Screaming Eagle, Gaja and Colgin and serve it by the glass to our patrons," says Morels' Lead Sommelier Nicholas Hetzel.
The restaurant also boasts an extensive wine list and bar menu with over 70 wines by the glass and over 400 wines by the bottle. You can also sip on handcrafted cocktails like the pisco rouge or the signature Morels, made with amara averna, orgeat syrup, Marie Brizard crème de menthe, fresh lime and a splash of soda water.
Morels' lunch menu features soups, salads and sandwiches like the house-made beef burger and braised chicken open faced, served with brie, crispy onions and balsamic mushrooms. A Dungeness crab meat cocktail served with tarragon, celery, house-made mayo and grilled crostini is a lighter, but filling and very good choice for the crab meat lover. A rare seared tuna Niçoise is offered, served traditionally with classic haricot verts, white anchovy, picholine olives and a quail egg and separated from the American-style dressing-tossed greens.
Morels is also open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
Morels is that rare find on the Strip - a blend of well thought out, carefully crafted dishes and everything else that makes your dining experience a pleasurable one. It's the combination of the cuisine and the "everything else" that puts Morels on the map.
