The food was excellent and our server, Hannah, was great. I was surprised by the limited draft beer selection though. Get there soon; the owner is closing it and opening a new restaurant

Kudos to Hannah and the chefs for serving an excellent lunch for an unexpectedly large crowd today. I'm going to try to get back to Alex and Ika before it switches over to Cantina de Salsa on May 5. I'm sure it will be equally good, but I'll miss those pork dumplings.

There were plenty of restaurants to choose from so after finding that this place was #1 on yelp, we gave it a go. The kitchen is in the front and the restaurant entrance is in the back so it's very deceiving from the street. There is nothing impressive about it. But when you walk in, the ambiance is beautiful and... More

We ate here on Easter night. Great menu, interesting decor, good servers. They are switching over to an all Mexican restaurant in the next month which I'm sure will be a hit as well.

The window on the street side of the restaurant had barstools and a view of the kitchen which looked very odd until we noticed a sign that said the entrance was through the alley. Even then it was deceiving because there was just a plain white door into the restaurant. Once we were in it was a nicely decorated place... More

I eat at A&I all the time, and always get great food and good service. But last night, a recently new "manager" made me not want to come back or recommend this place to friends. If you ever have to deal with a "Hannah", expect an unparalleled level of rudeness and lack of professionalism. After receiving an over cooked burger... More

Dined here with my daughter during trip to Cooperstown. Very cozy inside, with a eclectic twist. Lots of different decor and knick knacks. Food was awesome. Service was awesome. Even when they got rather busy at dinner time we never felt rushed. Really enjoyed dining here and would do it again if I had the chance.

We got into Cooperstown late and this was the only place open until 10pm. We ordered takeout and when we got there to pick it up, the bartender was super hospitable The food was great and I would go back there if I ever visit Cooperstown again. The fish tacos are a must!!

If you are looking for fresh, flavourful and delicious food then Alex & Ika is the restaurant for you. The fish has a fabulous batter that is not greasy. The tatar sauce was amazing. The fish tacos are full of kick and you can taste the freshness in every bite. The soup of the day "Cauliflower and Curry" exploded with... More
