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.

A visit to the Moosewood Restaurant was well worth the drive. Personable staff, inovative meals that tasted very good and a quaint area of town to walk around. Good selection of cookbooks too available for sale. Highly recommended! check times for opening before just arriving...

It's a sad thing, really, that this restaurant has apparently cine tumbling down from its once exalted spot at the top of Ithaca's dining scene. While the service was absolutely phenomenal, the food was downright boring and unimaginative. I was very happy to see a great variety of local wines on the wine list, considering the Finger Lakes has an... More

Good food, but limited menu. Service usually good unless you get a waitress that is not feeing too good. Some dishes just not that interesting, like mashed potatoes with some greens. They should do better than that. Just check the menu before going there.

Every daily special is very special! Filled with the freshest flavors and best quality ingredients. Everything tastes so healthy there is never any guilt.
