A wonderful place to eat in Ithaca

Asian cuisine mixes with fusion to create a great selection at Mia Tapas Bar. You have a choice of small plates (three to four a person is sufficient) or standard sized entrees. We went with eight small plates; a mixture of salads, savories and noodles and enjoyed every choice. The room is... read more

While we enjoyed the food at Mia, we suffered sticker shock when we got our bill. The wait staff should clearly ask whether you want the taste or the glass of wine. My husband and I each had 2 glasses of wine and when we received the bill, we were charged $72 for 4 glasses of wine, $18 per glass!!... More

My teen age kids and I had an early dinner at Mia on a Saturday night. Tried lots of the small dishes and my son also had a large curry dish, (Panang, and quite spicy!) The calamari was very good as were the pork buns. Also had a tofu salad, wontons, and raman. Definitely tapas with an Asian twist. Hopefully... More

I like Mia's - lets get that out of the way! Miss tried to be an Asian fusion place but some of their stuff is just plain boring. I'm not sure how "fusion" they are versus being an Asian place that randomly adds a couple different cuisines to their menu. But don't get me wrong. Most of the food is... More

Loved the restaurant, the atmosphere, the choices, the menu. And the wait staff was great too. Great drink selection. My mom ordered Sake and they brought her a lovely selection of cups to choose from for her drink.

After arriving as two medium sized parties under a single reservation, we were seated as one large party at our insistence. Perhaps that was a tactical mistake on our part, but the management--including the owner--put an effort into honoring our request, but not without objection and a significant delay. We were not asked for orders. Again, I was not in... More

We stopped in -- even though the Commons is still torn up -- for a meal after dancing at Lot 10. Mia has a diverse selection of tapas or entrees. The quail, shrimp, beet & arugula salad, and sweet potato fries were all very good. Quail and fries were slightly too oily, but delicious. The wine list is also nicely... More

had a very early pre-concert dinner here of three tapas hamachi quite tasty (3pc) marinated octopus salad, good but my least favorite and a tinyt but succulent little rock lobster tail with chili sauce, perfectly cooked, meaning not over cooked. That and a glass of local riesling set me back 52 dollars with tip. Woud have loved to have the... More

The food here is very yummy. Prices are a little high and portions are a little small for some dishes, BUT it really is a nice place to go for a treat and to try new foods. There are many items on the menu, so its possible to spend strategically and get a really nice meal without busting your budget.... More
