good wines, good craft beers, good homemade everything - woodfire pizza simple, tasty, quality ingredients, reasonable price. Dinners can be pricey, but quality is excellent - a 'date night' place for clean and pleasant meal rather than the many bar burger options in town. And clean matters to me. There are a couple of traditional older restaurants nearby with pretty... More

When in town, this is one of our favorite lunch spots. High quality, fresh ingredients- most locally sourced and organic. Wonderful salads, pastas, fish, pizzas, homemade soups, and burgers. Friendly service. Yes, the prices are a bit high, but the quality ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and wonderful flavors make it well worth it in my opinion.

I've been to Finch's several times. The food and service has always been excellent, and this time was no exception. Portions vary considerably among dishes, but most are generous. The food is positioned toward the gourmet end of the spectrum without being silly -- thoughtful sauces that are flavorful without being overwhelming. There are always fish and vegetarian dishes, although... More

An extensive beer and winelist, interesting and unusual menu items. The food preparation was very good but the prices are fairly high for this town and the servings often leave you a little hungry.

As we walked down the street all the restaurants were packed, so we were glad we had made reservations ahead of time at Finch's. However, we were surprised to find Finch's almost empty. It was a busy IU weekend, so Finch's had a "special" menu which consisted of only six entree choices ranging in price from $28 to $32. We... More

The service and food were excellent, but $8 foe a tiny piece of cheesecake is kind of steep. I had the chicken with rice, mushrooms and asparagus and my husband had the salmon. Both were cooked to perfection.

This is one of the nicest restaurants in Bloomington. All local and organic foods. The menu is unique and everything tasted amazing. Great restaurant if you want to go out for a special occasion.

There pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven and are terrific. The dordogne - prosciutto and truflle honey - is the best pizza I've ever had. The other dishes are always reliably delicious - no ordering anxiety. Also, their beer selection is very strong. I've heard some people complain recently about the service, but I personally haven't had any problems.

We had an incredible meal here in late March. We made reservations for a Saturday evening. Our group included two young children, which Finch's was more than happy to accommodate. Considering their location on Kirkwood Avenue, known for mostly for the bars, it was wonderful to find a family spot. Finch's was not as busy on this particular Saturday, given... More

From my initial contact with Finch's, making a reservation from Florida with Catherine, through the last of three dinners, my husband and I were quite wowed. On our first night, not knowing quite what to expect, we were greeted by Candace, whose warm smile essentially set the impressive tone of the service throughout. Finch's somehow managed to dazzle on food,... More
