I've been to Mahogany Grill several times over the past three years, but tonight was one for the books.I came tonight with a large group of college students. Not only did the restaurant hold our reserved tables despite us running a bit behind schedule, but they made room for the extra two people at the meal. We were unable to... More

I have to differ with the majority of reviewers. Mahogany Grill is best for simple bar standards like burgers and fried calamari, but does not do justice to any dish that requires culinary skills. This would include all seafood entrees. But it's a fun place for socializing over drinks.

I had eaten here in the past and it was fair, but since they have brought on a new head chef who completely renovated the menu using a majority of local ingredients, the food has been exquisite. I have been back several times and will continue to return.

We just came from the most wonderful meal. From start to finish, the calamari frittti was amazing the fried peppers were a unexpected surprise to the calamari. They were very crispy but not over cooked. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the truffled Parmesan fries were superb. Avi our waiter was very attentive to all of our requests. All... More

I wanted to write about our experience at Mahogany Grill when our family was in Ithaca. There were 12 in our party and were noisy and hungry! Thank goodness we went for a very early dinner so we didn't disturb other patrons. I cannot praise this restaurant enough! The service was so accommodating and cheerful with such a large group...

Very lively crowd at this college restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. Made it easy to share the plates, which is not always true at places. Meal was excellent. Our steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. Sides were good, as well.

Everyone is friendly and welcoming. They make me feel special whenever I walk in the door. If we have out of town guests visiting we always take... More

In Ithaca attending a concert at the State Theater, booked reservations day before at Mahogany Grill. We were here on Valentine's Day a few years ago --- not so enjoyable. We felt rushed and thought the food was overpriced. But wanted to give them another try, and we're very glad we did. Nice wine list, great menu choices, delicous flavors,... More

The service as this restaurant is without peer. Everyone that walks through the door is treated like a celebrity. The menu selections are beyond reproach. I have tried literally everything here and it is all delicious. The atmosphere radiates class and comfort. DJ, the manager, is quite possibly the friendliest and most professional man I have ever met. I would... More

I recently visited Mahogany Grill last month while in Ithaca visiting Cornell with my son and husband. We were tired after a long day of campus tours and didn't have a reservation but the hostess sat us right away in the charming dining area which has great ambiance. Our server was exceptional and very attentive- my family and I felt... More
