I always look forward to the opportunity to dine at Sargasso. The menu is delightfully simple. The food is well-prepared. The atmosphere is definitely not for college kids. As a random treat, order a coffee (hint: it comes with chocolate).

We enjoyed Sargasso on our exploratory trip of the city two years ago. Now that we have moved to Morgantown, we visited again for an adult date night with the help of a gift card from a friend. Still a classy venue and the food was good but not as good as we had expected. The restaurant was very busy... More

Sargasso has the feel of a restaurant you'd find in a larger metropolitan area offering a lovely touch of class in Morgantown. The food has always been delicious, beautifully presented and professionally served. We've been many times, for lunch and dinner, but our favorite meal at Sargasso, one of our favorite meals ever, was the special Champagne Valentines dinner last... More

Our Thanksgiving dinner was the Thanksgiving buffet at Sargasso and it was very good. The buffet was varied and everything I sampled was delicious. A cranberry mimosa added to the festive sense. I didn't sample many of the desserts because I was so full but they looked really good. We'd not been to Sargasso for some time. The buffet was... More

Came to Morgantown for an adults only weekend for the WVU vs Texas game and we wanted somewhere nice to eat Friday night. We had a very nice experience and overall everyone in our party seemed to enjoy their dinners. I had the filet which was cooked as asked and it came with a potato puff and asparagus. The asparagus...

For a non-metropolitan area, really first-rate. Friendly and professional staff; excellent bar and great beer selection; limited menu but very well done and presented. Best of Morgantown!

Nice atmosphere, good service and a nice menu variety. The food was well prepared but lacked anything to truly distinguish itself. Salads were better than entrees. Good wine selection by the glass. They have an unexplainable 10% service charge which is a misnomer since it does not go to the server. Not sure where it goes.

2.5 hours. Left the place hungry and had to swing by somewhere to finish dinner. The quality was great. Again very slow. Beet salad was great but two bites. Salmon was okay. Dessert was delicious. However, eating that for 2.5 hours left me hungry. Oh...but they have fancy motion sensor bathroom door so you can wash your hands before walking... More
