Good college restaurant for parents to take student!

While I did not really expect all that much, given the close proximity to the campus, I was very pleasantly surprised. I had probably the best duck I have every had. Everyone liked their meals. Son and friend had steaks and they were very good. Wine selection, by the glass, was limited and just... read more

It's difficult for someone with dietary restrictions to go out and eat. More often than not, you end up compromising your health, or stuck with one, lone salad. Not at Finch's. The chicken was moist and flavorful, and the wilted greens among the best I have had. Our server was attentive, professional, curious, and engaging. It was a marvelous way... More

Went here during Devour Bloomington and we were quite pleased with our selection! The restaurant is cozy and easy to miss from the street. Parking can be tricky, but not far from a public lot. Lots of choices and even small pizzas with interesting combinations of toppings. Vegans and carnivores can all be happy. There was a very good rabbit... More

I was looking for a place that offered selections for vegan, vegetarian, and carnivores. This place had all three and were very accommodating. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food and had the best tiramisu I think I've ever had!! Atmosphere was warm and inviting.

I love Finch's and often lunch here with friends and business contacts. There is variety whether you want hearty or salad light. Service is always pleasant and it is easy to return and feel good about your lunch. Be sure to check opening times. I have been caught out a couple of times when they were closed because IU was...

Really intimate and quaint little restaurant. The food was quite good. Biggest dissapointment was the Pot de creme. It was very thick and rich- not to my personal liking. There is also not a full bar so wine and beer are the only drink options. I would come back.

I went there for dinner after an Indiana basketball game (I'm an IU Alumni). We made reservations earlier that day from a recommendation at the hotel we stayed. It was further validated by a store owner on Kirkwood. I ended up ordering Lamb and Fig Pasta and the person I was with ordered Pork w/ Sweet Potatoes and both dishes... More

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
