Penne Alfredo with little shrimp, arugula, prosciutto perfect temperature, generous sauce (had to ask for bread to sop up sauce ???) friendly service but slow due to "early seating" with one waitress who has been with company for few years. Italian bread would be nice but eclectic menu so no theme other than fusion cuisine. Ambiance allowed for conversation and... More

Been here about four or five times now and never disappointed. Lovely warm and welcoming little place, dark wood, quirky, very friendly and helpful staff, and good quality drinks / wine. They sell the local Ommegang brewery beers, and a decent wine list (go for the $34 Malbec, or the Californian chardonnay). Food portions are good, and it's tasty, very... More

The owner of the B&B where we stayed recommended A & I. We arrived a little late in the evening, but they were still busy. We got a table fairly quickly. We had fish & chips and fish tacos. They were both good. The special of the day was gone when we arrived. The restaurant is small, but mirrors on... More

We were told to "give A&I a try" and enjoyed it. A bit pricey for Cooperstown, but unusual food, well prepared. Our table of four tried fish, duck, and pork, and enjoyed all three (the duck was left off the order, but a complimentary glass of wine, and no reason to hurry while we waited for the dish, made all...

Located in a tucked away alley off Main St., it's entrance is intriguing. Accommodating service, friendly staff and pleasant environment. Sat near a table of local physicians enjoying an end of day meal. The fried fish we ordered was crispy, fresh and delicious.

This would have been 5 stars if not for the issue I encountered. The location is on main street near our hotel. The entrance is off the adjacent driveway even thought the store front does not look all that excititng. The service was friendly and efficient. The ambience was very nice. My wife had the salmon which she thoroghly enjoyed.... More

Not a lot of choices near the hall of fame, so this place is acceptable. Decent beer on tap, salads and sandwiches decent. Folks at the next table had a tasty appearing dessert. Not a destination spot, at least tat lunch.

I heard great things about this place so we ate at Alex and Ika.....but unfortunately, we were all quite disappointed. I was even more upset that I was the one who recommended such a dud! I had the falafel which was ok but the tzatziki sauce was AWFUL. It had absolutely no flavor and I found brown lettuce in my... More

We have eaten at Alex & Ika's for decades, since they first opened in Cherry Valley, in fact. Then they moved to Cooperstown and opened a brasserie-style eatery complete with antique mirrors on the walls and fairy lights strung high over the bar area. It can be romantic for dinner, when all goes well and you don't get stuck with... More
