We have wanted to dine here since we received a cookbook as a gift a few years ago. The food and staff were excellent. The menu is published at 5:15 PM and at 5:30 they start seating. The bar area to wait for a table is very nice. If you have ice cream or yogurt for dessert only order one... More

Lovely friendly staff, good quality cooking, big portions, and a nice wine list as well. Well worth a visit, but go early as it fills up fast and they don't take reservations! We enjoyed the food a lot, and even bought the cook book!

Moosewood can be hit or miss depending on the staff working that day, but we definitely hit on our recent visit.

This is one of the best restaurant meals I've ever had, though by no means the most lavish or expensive or impressive. If you want fresh, healthy, unpretentious, delicious food, this is the place to be. We sat outside on their pretty patio and had some wonderful local wine. I had salmon with a bbq glaze that was to die... More

Moosewood never disappoints. You wont get a steak of meat-fest.. But you'll be treated to some amazing dishes. Lots of variety and a bit adventurous for some.... But give it a try. Patio is inviting and homey. Lunch on weekends is best....get there at around opening at 1130am. Try the flight of beer ...great local brew and totally healthy food!

I just love this restaurant. When I lived in Ithaca I always took the chance to eat there when I had some visitors in town. Tasty, delicious, healthy food that always settles well. Moderate portions for a balanced meal.

Don't pass this up if you're in the Finger Lakes region. It's all veggie, but don't be put off if that's not your thing. I'm a carnivore, but had no trouble finding several tempting options on the menu. We had to wait a few minutes to be seated, but not terribly long. The bar is very interesting, with lots of... More

This place is a local gem. A limited but very interested menu. I think the limited and ever changing menu results in very fresh and creative dishes.

I've had the original Moosewood Cookbook for over 30 years, so on my first visit to Ithaca of course I had to eat there. I had to go alone: the idea of this spot is not to everyone's liking. At lunch time I had no choice except to eat outside, as indoors was closed. As it was hot and very... More

We sure love this restaurant. The waiters and waitresses are always so friendly and courteous. The food is always subliminal! I love it, because most of their dishes are vegetarian. Each time we stop at this restaurant, it's always a different menu. They also have numerous cookbooks for sale and my wife enjoy cooking their recipes. So delicious! The only... More
