Food is OK, and the service sloppy and inattentive(waitress did not tell us there were specials!). Drinks are good, and atmosphere is cozy. The place needs a serious cleaning.

We had lunch here, and I wished we could have returned for dinner. the place is very inviting (although the chairs are a bit rickety), and the menu had many appealing options. The thai chicken wings are divine, as are the sweet potato wedges. Also good - the BAT (bacon, arugula, and tomato) sandwich, and the fingerling potatoes. There were... More

I have been here numerous times. Unfortunately, the last time we went the bread was cool and the soup was warm and not hot. Nonetheless, the appetizer (fingerling potatoes) was outstanding and our main dishes were excellent. They have a good selection of wine by the glass. Our server was friendly and timely.

From the front, Alex & Ika looks like an abandoned diner. That's because the kitchen is in the front, and the owners kept a row of diner stools in the front window (perhaps as a nod to its past?). But around to the left is the entrance, and the start of a wonderful dining experience. The place is small -... More

Not what I was expecting when I walked in--from the exterior, I expected a quaint restaurant with tablecloths and floral-printed dishes. Instead, I found eclectic decor, staff just on the good side of hip, and an ambiance that welcomed everyone from baseball families (if your kids will eat more than just burgers & dogs) to middle-agers out on dates. It's... More

We dined here with our kids over a November weekend when most of the town was shut down. This place was a great find -- warm and cozy with a friendly ambience. The menu was good and the beer and wine choices were interesting, especially the Ommegang brewery selections. Seemed like a place I would hang out if I lived... More

We were in Cooperstown this past weekend and had the good fortune to come across this place about ten minutes after checking In to our room. The restaurant has a couple cozy dining areas and is decorated nicely. For dinner we enjoyed a very nice Caesar salad and shared a few selections from the menu. Ribs were the highlight from... More

We visited Cooperstown recently, and had dinner at Alex & Ika's for our anniversary. The menu appeared quite ecclectic, and had what I thought was going to be, a sort of indian-tinge to some of the dishes. I ordered the arugula salad, which was fresh, and medium-sized. My wife had the house salad with balsamic dressing, which was quite ordinary.... More

Thank you so much for your comments. We are always saddened when a customer’s dining experience is not what was expected. It sounds like you were looking for more exotic fare than you received. You mention that our menu is wide ranging. We do that because not every customer likes to be challenged with every meal. We offer some “comfort”... More

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
