                                                    Exceptional experience. I asked the restaurant ahead of time for a quieter section: Our babysitter was unavailable but we still wanted to take my mother out for her birthday. They put us in a small room and had the table already set up with 2 high-chairs and seats for us. The food was the best it's ever been. Don't count out their risotto or "forbidden rice"! The lentils were amazing. The "featured dish" (chicken with ramps) was great. The kitchen was able to whip up some kids meals for us, too! Sargasso is consistently good. The service is only second to the food. Thank you for taking such personal and individualized attention. We're looking forward to returning!!

                                                    My second trip here in the past month. Food was very good, cooked to perfection, I had the filet. Another person in our party had the sausage and pasta, turns out it was the most delicious spaghetti I have ever had. Very good. Desert was slow, but the server was friendly and helpful

                                                    Very solid amounts of food for the price! Actual “craft” and quality for the price and atmosphere…not so much.

                                                    A limited, but interesting menu. Wine options were few unless you spent big bucks. Food was well prepared and presented.

                                                    Our first time there, unique menu and very fresh ingredients, food was excellent, nice atmosphere, quiet environment, overall great experience minus the server not bringing our bread after asking us three times... LOL! But we didn't mind... A very nice upscale dining experience...

                                                    Great evening and dinner. The restaurant wasn't bustling, making the dining experience feel more personable. The hostess and waitress were both professional and good at their jobs. The food was delightful, and the dessert was lovely. My only complaint would have been the lack of options as it was a minimal menu.

                                                    Had brunch. Could be a nice location, but we were stuck in a corner and couldn’t see the brown river behind the restaurant. Menu was very limited, and they didn’t have two of the listed menu items. The English muffin under my eggs Benedict was over-toasted and tough to cut into. A friend ordered the yogurt, and they failed to mention they stir almonds into the bowl - She’s allergic. Overall nice people, and they removed the yogurt bowl from our bill and replaced it with a bowl with no almonds. If I had to be in Morgantown, it’s likely one of the better restaurant options.

                                                    The choice of appetizers was exceptional, better than the main entrees. Although I was disappointed in the smoked trout salad, everything else was delicious. Excellent service and presentation.

                                                    Best dinner I have had in Morgantown in the 3 years I’ve lived here. Everything was amazing. The calamari, the fried eggplant, and dessert options too. Will definitely be going back.

                                                    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.
