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.

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.

Really great food with great servers. Cocktails were delicious. Filet was SO good, and we loved the calamari, the peppercorn salad, & the earl grey panna cotta

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.

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.

Micah was a great server and very attentive. The ambience was beautiful and noise level very low. The restaurant has taken great strides in ensuring social distancing. The food was divine (I had the salmon). The drinks were top notch as well! I will definitely return!

Always delicious! Order the pickles to nibble on while you decide what to eat. You won't be sorry! Pickled rhubarb, peaches, fennel, and onions were part a recent pickle plate. You can't go wrong with any of the salads, but the Sargasso is my very favorite. Corn cakes are a new appetizer selection and are very good. Ditto the Dan Dan Noodles. Sargasso is one of our favorite restaurants in Morgantown and it never disappoints!

Sargasso never disappoints! The pickled veggies are a must to start the meal - they are seasonal and always interesting (rhubarb!!). I am addicted to them! I almost never order chicken out but decided to try it and it was absolutely delicious! The skin was super crispy and the meat was tender and juicy. Greeens and polenta cakes rounded out the dish and it was all wonderful. My husband had a charcuterie plate for his meal and was very pleased (as always) with it. A couple of nice cocktails, beers, and a scoop of homemade ice cream for dessert rounded out the meal. There is a homemade ice cream and sorbet available for dessert every day and you should definitely leave room for it!

I think they now have it together. I've been a little critical at times in the past, but dinner Saturday was top to bottom great. Great server, great grouper, friendly staff, including the chief.

Pros: Great service! Burrata toast was a nice starter. Tomato bisque solid as well! Salmon well prepared and filet cooked to ordered temperature.

Cons: Decor showing its age. Needs some updating. 7:15 p.m. Saturday seating and not busy at all.

This was our second visit to Sargasso of Morgantown. Our first visit was five stars across the board, but this visit left us a bit disappointed. On our first visit, there were plenty of wait staff who provided top notch service. On this visit, our waitress was overwhelmed with tables to serve. The managers were stepping in to help, but were making mistakes delivering orders to the wrong tables. The weather outside was cold and there was a draft that gave my wife and other guests seated close by a chill. The food was excellent. We will visit again, but will pick a date when the weather is warmer.

The menu selection was not very exciting. We got the pickle appetizer which was an assortment of vinegar drenched vegetables that did not go very well together. The ratatouille was sloppily prepared. The rice pilaf looked like it came straight out of a microwave minute rice cup and the flavor of the tomato sauce was comparable to that of Ragu. We also ordered the pork chop which was surprisingly undercooked. We had high expectations for such a well rated restaurant but were very disappointed by what we experienced

We have written good and bad reviews for Sargasso. This visit was very good. The chiefs are always very good. They bent over this visit to make the service good. They had a nice seafood entry, which is not always the case. Again, though, we were unable to contact them by phone.
