I’ve been here several times for work, and while I’ve never had anything bad here, it’s never made me want to go back in my own, especially at these prices. Maybe I’d feel differently if I were more into duck or rabbit, which are popular...More

Thank you for feedback about your last dining experience at The ROOST, formerly Finch's Brasserie. When a customer has a less than perfect experience, it is an opportunity to make corrections. I am always looking to help the kitchen and service professionals exceed our customers'...More

Finch’s has long been a favorite of mine. But when Seth Elgar (lately of NOCO) came in to help refresh the menu they really ratcheted up another notch. I admit I am kind of stuck on the Seafood Puttanesca, Rabbit Cacciatore and the three duck...More

Fine dining prices without the quality, atmosphere or experience. When I saw the burger was $19 I thought - "Wow NYC prices for a burger in Bloomington? This must be really good." Instead, the burger was overcooked, small and mediocre at best. At these prices...More

I usually eat here when visiting Bloomington, Indiana and have been remiss on reviewing this exceptional restaurant. Wonderful ambiance, food, and very personable servers. The final bill can be somewhat pricey but the old adage of you "get what you pay for" is certainly applicable...More

Cozy and aromatic -- love the wood burning oven. Every dish is tasty and creative. The soups are always amazing and especially love the grilled salmon. And, how many places have both rabbit and lobster roll on the menu?

The food was very nice and well prepared. Nice atmosphere too. The service was incredibly slow though - and the restaurant was only half full. It took one hour to actually have our main meal served.
