The food is overrated and expensive for what you receive. I see them often listed as one of the best in Bloomington but I would not rate them in my top 10.

I loved this restaurant! We are here while dropping our daughter @ IU. The appetizers were excellent and all of the main courses were yummy! The gnocchi was beyond delicious and I would definitely order again. The Arrowhead apertif is great if you like different drinks. We sat outside and had a great time. I'm only doing 4 rating because... More

Finch's was highly recommended to us by several people upon hearing we were traveling to visit IU and we were not disappointed!! Finch's is an easy walk from IU campus, nestled in the heart of Kirkwood Avenue. We arrived without a reservation and very casually dressed, and we're warmly welcomed and seated promptly at a very nice table--Wow--guess we're not... More

On a recent extended holiday in Bloomington, we were so fortunate to visit this lovely little,French Brasserie located in the heart of city and it was our first night what a lovely welcome to the city, a bottle of exquisite Rose' on the patio watching the sunset. Even though it was close to closing we were graciously welcomed and encouraged... More

The brunch menu is somewhat limited, but has a few interesting things. My mushroom frittata was nicely done. Waitstaff is pleasant and responsive, but didn't remember to bring bread. Lunch menu is more extensive: check ahead to see when it's available.

Visited this restaurant for a business meal with a large group. We were given an upstairs private room which was light and airy. Food was good. Service great. Good selection of craft beers and knowledgeable waiter helped steer me through the options (some very strong beers - be careful). Would recommend for this type of function.

Met family there and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food. We had a charcuterie plate with 5 options that were fantastic! Great bottle of cab from Double T.

The crisp/tender duck breast was cooked to perfection, while the mussels were full of flavor and (surprisingly) fresh. Will return for sure!

This is still one of my top choices in Bloomington. I took staff here recently for an end of semester and pre-graduation dinner. Service was seamless and food was delicious. It remains a little upscale, limiting the clientele and the noise. I find it excellent for business. I had the duck confit salad as my entre and loved it. My... More
