Family in town and picked Finch's for no specific reason. Very glad we did. I had the Rabbit Cacciatore. Best meal I have eaten in Bloomington to date! Actually everyone's meals exceeded all expects. Just delightful!

Big thanks to Riley and the staff last night! We came in around 9pm and were made to feel right at home and not rushed through our meal. Everything from the mussels to the seafood pasta, the dordogne pizza, the bottle of Sancerre and the lemon buttermilk sorbet was delicious! What made the meal even better was the outstanding service... More

Our son is in his last year at IU and we've visited Bloomington dozens of times. Last night, our son booked dinner at Finch's, where my wife and I had not previously dined. We had a group of 7 and the service was great. Meals were tasty and reasonable portioned. My wife and I both found our meals a bit... More

We had a party of 7. The atmosphere is nice, if you do not care about price, this place is OK. But $16 for a 10" pizza is too much. The hamburger came with a red sauce for the french fries (no the red sauce was not ketchup, it was really bad.) When we asked for ketchup, they told us... More

While visiting here my fiancé and I had an amazing time. Staff was very knowledgeable and the food was spot on! Rabbit Cacciatore was extremely tasty and designer cocktails were our dessert! Beautiful area as well!!

I have an "on again off again" relationship with Finch's. I have had fabulous meals that made me swoon and I have had meals that kept me from returning for months. Last night we had one of those mediocre experiences. It was our 44th wedding anniversary and, hoping Finch's would have a super daily meal, we went there to celebrate.... More

Finch's is the go too restaurant in Bloomington, food is always good very consistent and the service is always good, sitting outside in Summer is wonderful. My friend had the duck and it was really good, I had the stake with Morels Mushrooms and it was delicious. It has a very good full bar and you can sit at the... More

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
