    The restaurant was not even open! We arrived at the restaurant for our reservation and there was a sign on the door that says the restaurant is closed and moving to a new location and they were just boxes and dust all over the place inside. We received no communication that the restaurant was closed.

    Well when make a reservation on open table for your V-day date…and the reservation is accepted….then to arrive and the place is closed. I do not know who dropped the ball- open table or the restaurant- but that is not the day to have miscommunication.

    My wife looked forward to a wonderful Valentine Day meal at Sargasso. We went at the reservation time made with Open Table. What a surprise!! There were no lights on in the restaurant and the parking lot was empty. When I went to the door, there was a sign that they were relocating - no forwarding address. Why didn't Open Table know about this? This was the most disappointing Valentine Day dinner ever.

    We made a reservation on OpenTable for 7p Saturday evening. Reviews and photos looked great. We arrived at 7:02p and the restaurant is closed. This completely disrupted our evening as we traveled from out of state to attend a sporting event our son was participating later that night. With limited options in the area we ended up scrambling to simply grab a quick bite. Restaurant management, with a few keystrokes could have closed dates on their reservation platform (OpenTable).

    I was there with a party of 4, three people had the most amazing looking food. My BLT looked and tasted like it had come from a diner, not a fine dining restaurant. It was the saddest little BLT I have had in a very long time. Service was very slow, for just our table. Our waiter failed to clear our places before our dessert was delivered. I have been several times, this was the most disappointing.

    We were especially impressed with the potato and mushroom soup and the fish entrees. The wait time for our food was much longer than expected which was a bit surprising because the restaurant was not crowded. We waited 25 minutes for dessert.

    We live about an hour away and drove to Sargasso to meet friends from Morgantown. The food was great, I had the pork chop and my wife had the crab cakes. We also had some charcutier and cheese boards for appetizers. There was 7 of us and we also enjoyed some very good red wine. Along those lines, they had a very nice wine selection to choose from. Our waiter, Jack, did a fantastic job. He was very attentive and despite having a rambunctious group, he didn't make a single mistake. Definitely recommend.

    This was our "Farewell Sargasso" dinner, as our travel plans have changed. For over a dozen years, we have dined with Sargasso on our way home from our vacation in Western Pennsylvania. From the first, we found the food, service, and ambiance at Sargasso to be wonderful and the staff to be delightful. Should our plans change and bring us to Morgantown again, we will certainly be returning, for a meal at Sargasso is not to be missed. Everything on the menu is good, the portions generous, and the prices fair for what you get. (Do not, however, expect to dine cheaply.)

    The food and drinks were amazing as usual. Service was a little slow. I think there may have only been one waitress working. My only actual complaint is that the tables are ALWAYS sticky. Anything that touches the tabletop sticks to it hard. Glasses, silverware, menus. Otherwise, we LOVE Sargasso.

    We love coming to Sargasso for both lunch and dinner. Dinner items a bit pricy, but fair. One of the main things that sets you apart from similar restaurants is food quality. While we found this to again be the case, the exception was the bread which was sadly dry. Such a small thing but noticeable as we had out of town guests who loved the experience, but also commented on the bread. No worries, just constructive feedback to make you the best...we will continue to frequent for lunch, dinner, drinks...great place!
