We didn't have reservations at any restaurant and it was parents weekend in Bloomington so we were having trouble finding a place to eat dinner. We had eaten here in the summer and enjoyed it so we thought we would try to get in. We arrived 20 minutes before opening at 5:00 and asked the server that was near the... More

We waited more than an hour for our meal. The waitress could not even bring us bread, saying the kitchen was backed up. After an hour wait, we asked the manager for some bread. Moments later our angry waitress tossed some bread on our table and stomped off. We won't be back.!

We had dined at Finch's Brasserie in Bloomington, IN, about a year and a half before our most recent visit. We were quite impressed with that first experience. The food was well-prepared, the service good and the atmosphere welcoming. On our most recent visit (just a few days ago), we found it had changed considerably: It seemed just a light... More

This place is one of the favorite among college intellectuals. It is located right next to campus with a small patio leading to the main street. The menu is very short and limited for vegetarians. Waitresses are nice and patient, food is good. Prices are above average to distract most college students.

I travel to Bloomington on business 4-5 times per year and this was my first time at Finch and it is now my favorite in this college town. Very cozy atmosphere, upscale yet casual with very friendly staff. We chose to eat at the bar because the warmth of the beautiful wood fired oven felt so good! Lengthy beer and... More

After a challenging day of biking the Hilly Hundred we were set to enjoy an evening of fine food and drinks at Finch's. Let me just say, to summarize, we expected much more. The Italian red wine we chose was excellent ($10 a glass). It should be. The beers offered were varied yet not overwhelming (not too many). But if... More

Went for lunch before the football game. It was a recommendation. One got the brasserie burger. It was good. Grass fed beef fries were average and not fresh. It was surprising since there were not many people there. My daughter got buttered noodles and gave it all away to other family members. My other daughter had the classico pizza and... More

Finch's Brasserie was truly a delight for dinner with its fresh ingredients/food that made the relatively small menu wonderfully appetizing; great beer and wine list; large but without feeling like it and lovely service. Highly recommend for an elegant meal at the home of Indiana University, just steps from the university gates.

First, the only thing I am reviewing is the "Classico Pizzeta". I am not sure how everything else is but the pizza was very disappointing. Pizza is one of our favorites things and we have had great pizza in many places ( see our review of Englewood Flatbread). For $15 this was really a joke. There was no real flavor,... More
