Nice Cocktail Party

We had the chicken fingers, crab filled mushroom caps, meatballs (great sauce), filo triangles, assorted cheeses and fruits and... read more

We've been here a lot over the years, mostly for breakfast. This year while passing through town we stopped in and found a renovated dining room and a lovely bar area. The food is good. Nothing to write home about, but it's good and the staff very friendly and eager to please.

Located downtown on Main Street, the Community is an institution in Cortland. When I originally came to Cortland, the Community Restaurant was where I was taken for part of the interview - to impress me. It's like a classy diner from the year 1900. The fancy woodwork makes the seats resemble boxed pews in an old Episcopal Church. The menu... More

In town to visit family. Very good experience. We had drinks in the bar then moved to our dining area. Server was attentive. Pace of appetizer s was good and entrees were hot and delicious.

What perfection today! The mimosas were strong, the menu perfectly planned, best eggs Benedict I have had in years, fresh fruit really fresh and 3 choices, high quality thick but light french toast, perfectly crispy bacon, fresh baked cinnamon rolls that you could taste the yeast in slightly like Grandma would have made, I could go on. What a lovely... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant. It has been in the community forever, and I have eaten here in the past and had terrific food. The Community has been recently renovated...and it looks fantastic. Although still rather dark, it is much lighter and open feeling than it was before renovations. There is quite a bit of seating now. We... More

We decided to try this place out thinking from it's name it should have great family meals with great family prices. Not the case. The interior was very nice. The booth we sat in was very uncomfortable. The prices were quite high. The Iced Tea we ordered was the worst Iced Tea I have ever tasted. The waitress walked by... More

I do not usually review restaurants, but this was so over the top, I had to. We went to this restaurant last Saturday with a group of 5 people. We had 7:30 reservations. We arrived and were seated promptly. After about 10 minutes, a waitress walked by and said she would be right with us. 10 more minutes and a... More

The Community Restaurant is local legend. Owned by the same Greek Family since the early '60's. Just recently remodeled but kept the same Community Restaurant we locals have all come to expect. Now in it's third generation of the Souzas family they have kept with tradition. If it's down home comfort or Greek food you're looking for, you can find... More

Having never been there,then going there last night with my partner whose family had gone there for years I was amazed. These days it's hard to find a local restaurant that goes through an upgrade,change in menu,and ownership and thrives. Evan has done just that. As business owner's we can appreciate the dedication and commitment that goes into making it... More
