This is probably the most famous restaurants in Ithaca. Vegetarian but does serve fish. Atmosphere is good. Setting is dated. Food excellent. I had salmon with a polenta cake for my main. Was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals

Had a fairly large group for dinner and Moosewood did a wonderful job. Meals all came out at the same time, reasonable temperature, and great service. I was a bit hesitant since it portrays itself as a vegetarian restaurant. But there were a few seafood...More

If in Ithaca definitely give this iconic restaurant a try. The food is good, service is friendly and the atmosphere is very ‘college town’ like. The menu is constantly changing and everything is tasty. While this is a well known restaurant because of the many...More
