Great Dining and Healthy Eats

We have cooked from Moosewood cookbooks for many years, so we are used to not adding unhealthy ingredients to our meals (processed foods, sugars, fats, lots of salt, etc.). We found that Moosewood meals were delicious and really enjoyable; it is possibly a stretch to suggest this, but diners whose... read more

We were not sure what to expect. The place is famous for its cookbooks, but the reviews for the restaurant, while mostly positive, are variable. Well, we had a blast, although I see how people's experiences may vary. From the two appetizers we shared, one was excellent (quesadilla) and one was so-so (just boiled shrimps). We tried three different specials... More

Went there twice in one week on our vacation in Ithaca, NY. Had read the Moosewood Cookbook back in the 1980s and was expecting a lot out of this legendary place. The first night I had the mushroom tart special entrée and loved it, but the second night I ordered off their regular menu and was disappointed. The broccoli was... More

As a person who loves to meat eat, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the food here. This became our go-to place on Fridays during Lent.

We were here for dinner and had good food. I personally like the burger very much. Maybe a bit a pricy place I would say but defently good food. I tried the locals beer selection but to me as an non American citican these were of very poor taste

Over the course of 11 years, I've only eaten here three times, but each time has been phenomenal and tonight was no different. The staff is super friendly and even laughed at my bad jokes. Hostess, bartender and waitress could not have been nicer. The food is always fresh and cooked just right. I had salmon with breaded corn tortilla... More

We LOVE the Moosewood, or should I say "loved" the Moosewood. We've been coming here since our daughter went to Cornell. We drive approximately 1 1/2 hours (one way) from North of Syracuse. Tonight we decided to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary at the Moosewood. I should have known something was wrong when I found out that they now take... More

We went to this restaurant for our marriage anniversary. I wanted to reserve the table for us, but everytime I called, the person told me to call later. Finally I called 2 hours before dinner and was able to reserve it. We got to the restaurant 15 minutes late, but still found our table reserved for us which was good.... More

In a way, Moosewood is fortunate to have such an iconic reputation in the healthy & vegetarian food industry; and in a way, it puts a lot of pressure on the restaurant to be the be-all and end-all. I have eaten there a number of times and I have always had a reliably good meal, healthy; served by a pleasant... More

Based on reviews that is one of the best restaurants in Ithaca, we made a few visits to try to get a table. Avoid weekends as both the tables and bar get full. We were finally able to get seats at the bar. The staff was friendly once we started a conversation with them. The menu choices were interesting but... More
