Sargasso of Morgantown Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
I have eaten several times at Sargasso and have never been disappointed. My wife is vegetarian and can always get a great meal. Service is always top notch. They have a new menu which maintains the same high quality meals. If you are looking for fine dining in Morgantown, this is the place.
Exciting new menu and the food was outstanding. The Sea Bass and Vegetarian eggplant dish were delicious. My steak was cooked perfect and my husband enjoyed the porkchop. The new cocktail menu and the goat cheese appetizer was a hit. We had a great dinner and bonus there was live music.
Crisp and comfortable decor at a splendid riverside location help make this restaurant a hit. It's greatest draw, however, is one of the best and most value-conscious wine lists I have seen anywhere in the state. If I lived in Morgantown I'd be a regular for that reason alone. The list is compact in big city terms, but nicely covers the spectrum, from inexpensive but well chosen bottlings to serious but very fairly priced classified Bordeaux and other standouts.
The food was good, ordered the pork dish and my wife ordered the trout dish, with my only complaint of the clams appetizer being a bit to salty for my taste. The service was excellent and the noise level was good for our occasion. Prices were as expected in a nice dining establishment.
Meals created with a flair for sure! Chef Dave always accommodates my vegetarian husband with something delicious! Can't say enough about the staff and how friendly and knowledgeable they are. Extensive wine list, but plenty of modestly priced good wines. We have only lunched there a couple of times, and have not taken advantage of the wine tastings and special Chef meals, but love to go for dinner. The rooms are lovely and more on the romantic side, so good place to go for special occasions. Living in a college town presents a lot of fun and funky casual places to dine, but if you are a foodie looking for delicious and creatively prepared/presented dishes -- as well as a quieter more romantic setting -- this is the place to go!
My girl friend and I went to Sargasso's before prom. We were both amazed with Sargasso's, especially with the friendliness of the employees. They recognized our special occasion and treated us with a free, festive, non-alcoholic drink. We will definitely return for more special occasions and recommend to our friends!
We stopped in on a Wednesday and ordered from the "small plates" menu. The three dishes we ordered (Chicken wings in a Blueberry Fresno Chile BBQ glaze, Asado Tacos and the Steak Frites
4 oz Tenderloin with Peppercorn Cognac Sauce and Hand-Cut Fries) were beautifully prepared and delicious. Nice wine and beer list and attentive wait staff. Overall, it was a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Choose this restaurant for a special occasion or make any day special by dining at Sargasso, the food and service are that good. From the taste of the food you can tell the ingredients is fresh and the chefs focus on making each dish a culinary delight. This was my second visit and I will be looking for more reasons to visit Morgantown so I can dine at Sargasso.
