I had the asparagus fritters, which were attractively placed in a pyramid shape and served over greens and tomatoes with a dressing. My son had the havarti dill"grilled cheese" which had a nice lemony tang to it. The ginger tea special was too powerful.

They were...More

I have lived in Ithaca for 30 years. Long ago, service here was great. As for my visit yesterday, during lunch with lots of open tables, service was meh! Our meals were just 'good'. However, if we interacted with our waitress 3 times during an...More

We come back when we're in Ithaca, and in the past have had variable experiences. This time, good service (for the most part) came together with good food and ambiance. My only quibble is that they often forget something - in this case, a side...More
