Clearly we are omnivores in that we raise chickens and beef but we also raise vegetables and the Moosewood staff are experts at vegetables! Indeed the Moosewood was our favorite as we ate dinner there twice that week. the staff were friendly and helpful and the ambiance was perfect.

If you want to define thoughtfully created food.. this is the place that does it. With a rotating menu created by the different owners, the food is ever changing. I have had amazing vegetarian and fish dishes (mainly available on the weekends). A coffee and juice bar compliment the menu well. The staff is full of smiling people excited about... More

Service was excellent. Food choices were many and all were good. The restaurant was very busy and one had to wait for a table. Waiting was made more pleasant by being able to browse the selection of cookbooks that Moosewood has published. Food is made to order and of the finest quality. Can be pricey but you get what you...

Food is delicious everytime I go here. They cater to a variety of special diets including gluten free. Expect an explosion of taste in your mouth if you go here.

Wonderful ambiance, scrumptious food, intelligent service. Moosewood has it all. If they served breakfast, I would have eaten all my meals here while visiting Ithaca. Ithaca has great restaurants. This was my favorite. There needs to be a Moosewood in every town. The menu changes daily. I had the stuffed portabella and stuffed pepper special. The ginger lemonade is great... More

I was here in the 90's for a meeting at Cornell and finally got to eat at the restaurant who's cookbooks I had been using for 20 years. It did not disappoint then, and my two meals this week continued the tradition. One funny coincidence was I had made a very similar meal that weekend with Delicata squash as one... More

I've had their cookbooks forever and filled my foodie fantasy by finally dining here. Salad was fresh and dressing just right. Roasted squash dish was filled with so many tasty morsels! Finished off with an almond shortbread plum tart that was enjoyed with a very big glass of wine! We arrived at 8:00 and got a perfect seat in a... More

Our group of four looked forward to our visit at this restaurant made famous by its cookbook. Sad to say, our dinner was disappointing in so many ways. The ambiance was dreary and the food, though edible (well, one of us sent her meal back because it was too salty) was artless. The whole experience was baffling coming from a... More

I've been wanting to go to Moosewood for years and finally was in Ithaca and could make my dream come true. Truly met my expectations! I had lasagna which was layered with kale--rich with well-rounded flavors. Side salad was tasty with just the right amount of dressing. My friends and I shared some of their divine desserts. Our server was... More

Having eaten from the cookbook for many years, even decades, it was pleasing to find the restaurant still serving quality, creative food. Lunch for me was a delightful soup and an interesting salad.
