Talk about a hidden find. We saw the sign for the restaurant, but upon reaching the front entrance there was a sign directing us around the "house" towards the back. We entered to find a charming and cozy restaurant. We ate lunch there and had the most amazing fish tacos ever!

We were in Cooperstown for the day and decided to make this our dinner choice. We went without a reservation (probably not the best decision), but were lucky enough to get a small table in the front. This is an eclectic and lovely place. Our wine choice, a Malbec, was exceptional. And then there was the food. I had Chicken... More

My wife and enjoyed another great meal at Alex and Ika's. We visit the Cooperstown area twice a year and always make a point to have dinner at Alex and Ika's. The food was fresh and delicious. I can't say enough about how attentive and friendly our server was. This place should be a must stop for when you are... More

We're visitors to Cooperstown and went to Alex and Ika Friday night based on the super reviews of a couple we met at another terrific Cooperstown restaurant -- Toscana. Alex and Ika was booked when we got there, so rather than come back another night or sit at the bar, we headed upstairs to their very special Tartetatin offshoot -a... More

I've lived in Cooperstown for ~9 months and I've been meaning to finally eat here. I came here with a couple friends on a Friday night and the wait was about 30 minutes overall (this was in March when the tourists aren't really here). We were able to sit at the bar and grab a drink in the meantime (decent... More

Every so often you find a great restaurant that you wish you could visit more frequently - Alex & Ika is one of those places. We found out about them due to good reviews on Trip Advisor and are glad we went. It's a cozy little place in the heart of town. We were there on a Sunday evening and... More

Being local, this is one of our choice places to go. Food is aleays good, atomsphere pleasant and cozy warm by the gas stove. Today I had the toasted cheese with mushrooms tomatoes and arugula sandwich for lunch. It arrived piping hot; it absolutely hit the spot! Don't tell the tourists or we won't get a seat come spring!

In an unusual setting a few steps down a short alley/driveway there are usually a diverse group of offerings to satisfy a variety of tastes. The chefs are inventive and frequently will have an unusual special for the evening. You will be wise to make a reservation. It is a favorite of folks like me within driving distance.

A cozy bistro right in the heart of Main Street in Cooperstown, perfect for an intimate dinner. We went on a Saturday night in off season and barely got a table for two. Reservations are strongly recommended. It is popular with the locals, which is always a good sign. Their fish tacos with chipotle aioli were outstanding, and the fingerling... More
