I found this restaurant by checking out the Tripadvisor’s reviews for Morgantown WV.
I wasn’t to be disappointed. The staff know what they are doing and in Elise they have a staff member who does everything so well. As a European, we are sometimes overawed by the reaction of restaurant staff, but Elise had, in my opinion, the perfect balance.
On her recommendation I had the pork chop and a pinot noir to accompany it.
It was cooked to absolute perfection.
As a “foodie” I know how difficult it is to get pork just right. I discovered that the chef had used the “Sous Vide” method by sealing the chop in a bag and slowly cooked it in a bath of hot water and then finishing it on the pan. This is now going to be my own cooking method of choice when serving pork at home!!
With still wine to finish, I asked for something that was not on the menu and rarely seen in the US……a cheese board. Nothing was a bother to Elise who appeared back some minutes later with Carl, the chef who had prepared the pork, and in his hands one of the most comprehensive cheese boards I have ever had the good fortune to experience.
Heaven knows if I’ll ever get back to Morgantown, but if I do, I know where I going to have dinner; the Bourbon Prime.
The Marriott/Bourbon Prime should be proud of their staff and the restaurant experience they produce.

I dined here twice during my recent trip to Morgantown, and was blown away by both the excellent quality of the food and the attentive service I received from the host (Todd) and the management staff. I ordered the salmon entree (as I often do when I eat out), and was extremely impressed by the quality of this dish. The salmon was cooked perfectly (as it rarely is at most restaurants), including a slightly crisp finish with a subtle buttery sauce. The accompanying asparagus and fingerling potatoes were also wonderful - I finished every bite both times I ordered it. Even when the restaurant was very busy on a a Saturday night, Todd and the management staff seemed to keep an eye out to ensure I was taken care of when the wait staff may have been a little overwhelmed. While BP may not be the first choice if you are in a hurry, it is well worth the time if you are looking for an outstanding dining experience and appreciate a team approach to service. They use locally sourced ingredients, and the menu exhibits an upscale approach to regional favorites - everything tastes extremely fresh and delicious. I hope to have an opportunity to come again!

Business meeting, but will return often with couples. Relaxed, yet professional atmosphere. Your choice of bars, absolutely great Country Roads Bourbon cocktail, Appetizers large enough to share with others."Pittsburgh Rare" Ribeye was done to perfection each visit.
Service in private dining room was rather slow, but all other times, service in the restaurant was exceptional. Nice place for mature, professional people to congregate. Parking in garage is ample, easy, valet or validated for you. Please do not be fooled by their location within a hotel.

This is the second time we dined at this restaurant. We cam back because of the positive experience we had a few months previous. We were a party of twelve, parents and students, who had attended the homecoming football game. The atmosphere was celebratory but not too loud, and warm and inviting. The manager (Todd?) was friendly and accommodating and had our table ready and waiting. Our waitress Elise managed our large party like a pro! She was attentive, kept track of who needed another drink or water refill and ensured that the meal moved along at a comfortable pace.The food was delicious and we all had a great meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely visit again.
