We were in Morgantown for five nights, we ate at the Golden Finch three evenings. Arrive a bit after five-thirty so the specials have been determined. This restaurant had been recommended. Our first night was excellent. The food was inventive, creative, well served, and tasty. I have to be honest of the six meals we ate, five were excellent. The... More

Walked in to an overwhelming smell of....maybe Pine Sol?? It truly hit us in the face so we almost left. But since we were tight on time, we stayed. I can't eat wheat so my choices were very limited on the lunch menu. Naturally, I had to have a salad. Nothing special, but still tasty. Atmosphere very plain. Will try... More

My daughter had dinner here during our WVU orientation visit. We were tired after a long day and it was pouring rain. From the host that sat us to the waitress to the food, it was a very easy comfortable , enjoyable experience and dinner. Very good food, we each had a nice salad and shared a huge grilled chicken...

Visiting grad school son and wanted a nice place but so funny and gracious waiter and the food - so wonderful, flavorful and not expensive by restaurant standards. Not busy but should have been as everything was excellent from service to food - so it could use a little ambiance - it's Morgantown. This is a MUST go to when... More

From start to finish the experience was absolutly wonderful. This is one of the better atmospheres you will find in morgantown if you are looking for a nice quiet evening out with that special person this is the place to go. It is a small place with limited tables. They play very soft jazz music at dinner time. There is... More

Had a light dinner on a business trip. Good food, nice atmosphere. I'm writing more than a month after the fact and don't recall what I ate. But I know the whole menu was appealing.

I have tried this place more than once, three times, actually. The service is slow, despite good waiters, so it is a kitchen/management issue. One time, my lunch took two hours and the place wasn't even packed. The manager's response? "Well I could tell you what happened but it wouldn't do any good..." Please! If there is a problem, tell...

This restaurant is one of the better restaurants in Morgantown. The menu offered a large selection and the sweet potato fries dipped in beer batter were delicious! I enjoyed sitting in the side areas by the entrance with a great view of passersby. Service was also excellent. Recommend for lunch...
