Yes, the smashed fingerlings are addictive but...

the fish tacos are the gold standard. The combined tastes of the fish, the black bean and corn salsa and the cilantro are heaven! Most everything else on the menu is awesome but the fish tacos: Oh, my!

Thank you for checking out our new venture, Cantina de Salsa, and its Latin menu. We know the fingerlings are missed, but we are so glad you enjoyed the fish tacos and we hope to see you again soon! More

They apparently just redid the menu and changed names. It was so fresh and phenomenal. I had ahi tuna tacos which were so tasty as were the chips and salsa. We ate at the bar. The margaritas were amazing and the bartender (she had a B name) was great with the right attitude.

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.
