    Went for brunch and was very disappointed. Table was dirty and floor wasn’t clean. Waited over an hour for our food and they brought entrees 10 minutes apart. Place wasn’t that busy.

    Our family and friends had dinner at Sargasso's and it was very good. We made a reservation for 6 and our table was ready on time that service very prompt and friendly, which has not been the case at every restaurant recently. We shared the calamari, olives and dumplings for appetizers, and they all were excellent. We had different dished for dinner, from the halibut special to steaks. All were excellently prepared and flavorful. There were no take-home boxes necessary. I highly recommend Sargasso's for dinner in Morgantown.

    Overall very good. Menus on the website do not match menus at the restaurant. Normally this isn't an issue really but in this case we actually wanted to go to Sargasso specifically for lobster but there wasn't any lobster on the menu at the restaurant. The good was still good regardless. Service good.

    Wonderful experience! Came in town for a concert. Our original dinner reservation cancelled & thankfully we ended up at Sargasso. Most attentive server we’ve had in awhile. The food & drinks tasted great & presentation was beautiful. First celery salad I’ve ever had, won’t be the last! We didn’t realize my husband left his credit card until we were getting drinks at the concert venue. I called and spoke to the hostess when I said we lived in Northeast Ohio, and would be home before they opened the next day, she immediately offered to mail it. I asked if anyone drove past our hotel & could drop it off and our server did. Thank you so much for going above & beyond!

    The wait staff was polite and friendly. The beer selection was very small and nothing local to choose from. The chicken and dumpling appetizer was very bland and lacked flavor. My wife had the sausage ragu and she said it was good not great but good. I had the mushroom risotto and it was very bland no real flavor. I expected more considering the price point.

    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!!

    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.
