There was only a waitress and a bartender. They did their best.

We all four had the filet with mashed potatoes and green beens. Wellness ranged from medium rare to medium well (I apologize for the person who ordered medium well). Everyone's meal was perfect! Staff was attentive.

The cabbage soup was very good. For the price, our main course was not the quality I would pay for again.

Great food. A little pricey, but worth it for a fancy night out. Dinner for 4 ran about $200.

We always think of this restaurant first for special occasions. This time my fish meal was a bit too salty for me, but then I use very little salt. My husband’s meal was perfect.

This is a great place in Morgantown that we stopped by for Sunday brunch. They made a simple toast, eggs, bacon, potatoes meal upscale. Very generous portions and excellent taste and quality. Waitstaff was very attentive. Will definitely return.

We are regulars there and are always treated great. Get to know Chef Dave and he will often make sure that he has your favorite dish available. It's an early crowd, usually breaking up by about 9 PM. We keep going back.

I Was very disappointed with this restaurant. Very expensive and the food was not very good. The cocktails were even worse. Save your money.

Food was good albeit a bit pricey for what we got. Service was subpar (had to ask for bread, more drinks, and if there were specials...) I just attribute this to a very inexperienced waitress. Short drinks were poured. Very nice atmosphere and worth a visit but we probably won't go back. There are better places around.

I've eaten there several times and the food has always been great. The filet may be the best filet I've ever had. The cheese board is always a great starter.

Can only say good things about this restaurant. Service was nearly perfect ( minor mix-up in the wine selection that worked to our advantage). A Coq au Rhiesling was a neat twist on Coq au vin! Schnitzel brought me back to Austria. Location is a bit out of the way, but what a find in Morgantown WV. Do got because menu goes beyond the German/Austrian selections we made.

Being regulars there, we are always treated very well. When they see us on the reservation list they often get good fish, which they know we like. And---------Dave know how to prepare our meals. Great place.

First let share that our server was wonderful. I'm giving this restaurant a low rating because the brunch menu posted in open table isn't close to what is actually available. I have food allergies so I put alot of time into carefully researching menus. Since so many items listed on open table weren't on the menu, I was left with eggs and potatoes as my option. It can't be that hard to make sure your menus are current/updated.

Good food and atmosphere but nothing super sophisticated to justify the price. Super expansive. If ready to spend $$$$ go to Stephano’s it has bigger plates and advanced food artistry.

Online reservation: we are open
Google page: we are open

Made reservations, called to confirm with the above results and what did we discover up getting dressed and driving there? Closed! With a hastily made sign tapped to the window.

I don’t mind if you close, but across a week and a half of this process you could have told the world you are closed.
We have been coming here for years but last Saturday we were forced to go elsewhere—madeleines— and got just as good a meal with no problems.

Won’t be coming back. Goodbye

We drove for an hour got to the restaurant about 10 minutes before our reservation and the restaurant was closed very disappointing and a complete waste of time next time you guys should make sure the place is open before you accept a reservation on behalf of an open table user

Food selection is impressive. Able to make accommodations for vegetarians. Wine selection was better than I expected. Service was professional. Have been here before and will be back again. Had the Wiener schnitzel which was tender and the potato salad that came with it was really good, had a balance of onion and egg, and was cold which was nice.
