Excellent steak with a bar

Wonderful ambience, Moscow mules served in copper mugs (although they call it a mahogany mule), and the best steak in Ithaca. We also had the shrimp scampi which was delicious and I highly recommend ordering the mahogany mash as a side dish. The service was very good and it is close to the Cornell... read more

We waited an hour and a half Friday evening for Dinner - very crowded and disorganized. I order the Brussel Sprouts with Bacon - they came out in a think white cream sauce - ew - sent them back Service was pretty decent given that is was so busy. We went for a 45 minute walk before dinner exploring the... More

Stopped by the restaurant while visiting Ithaca College. The food was good, and it had a great atmosphere. Enjoyed our visit.

We have had dinner there 4 times and always found the food and staff very good. It's not inexpensive. They don't take reservations and seem to be busy every time we've been. Go a little early or plan on having a drink at the bar.

I had an omelette, which wasn't bad, but it tasted as if it had been sitting under the warming lights for a while. It came with a tiny fruit cup, a dried up biscuit, and a scoop of mush which I learned was hash brown casserole. I'm giving it an okay rating because the atmosphere is very nice and relaxing...

Great atmosphere, excellent dishes, poor wait staff. Our server, David, couldn't be any less interested in serving our party of six. Needed to ask about the soup and specials. He seemed to be annoyed by having our table while the other wait staff seemed interested and enthusiastic. The food was truly delicious but the overall experience was disappointing. Hope he... More

If I'm downtown and want to meet a friend for dinner, I very often choose Mahogany Grill. The menu is interesting, the food is well prepared, friendly, efficient service in an attractive decor. I particularly enjoy the fact that I can choose small or large meals, and splurge or stick to my diet. Their wines are very good and quite... More

I have been coming to Mahogany grill intermittently for lunch for at least 10 years. Most recent visit was a week ago and pleased to see that the excellent experience has not changed. The menu is large and varied with enough to suit a multitude of appetites. Particular favorites are the barbecue brisket sandwich and the French dip. Chances are... More

I love the inside of this restaurant, but it is very pricey and not worth the value. The Mahogany Burger was $15 and not very tasty. I was afraid to ask about the Featured Burger with a price of MKT!

This place has a prime outdoor spot off the Commons and a cool old dark wood space but I've never impressed by their food. It's always ok to me.
