Cool looking place but can't get in to the food

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.

It was an ok experience this time. Had the Han and cheese(kind of dry) as there is no dressing in it . Truffle fries are delicious and the seafood chowder was watery and soupy

Managed to remember to visit before students returned from winter break so we could get seated quickly! LOL! Great food... Nice surprise with Apple-Cheddar appetizer and Calamari! Perfect. Nice choices for meal for all in our party... Will surely return. Attentive wait staff, friendly, beautiful surroundings... Even found a good parking space. But we will be back for the food!

I've only been here a few times, but have already started to recognize the "regulars". The bartender remembers what you ordered previous times and down-home stuff like that. It seems like an easy-going place both at the bar and tables. Food has lots of options that include local produce and meat; gluten-free options; and the flavors are excellent. Mahogany is... More

I realize this place is crazy popular with the college crowd. But our experience was one of unmet expectations. We ordered an appetizer, the rock shrimp tempura. What sounds delectable on the menu was a big disappointment in actuality. The ‘shrimp’ were tiny little pieces; not at all the ‘whole’ shrimp one has come to expect when they read ‘shrimp... More

This block on Aurora street has many great restaurants and among them the Mahogany Grill holds its own. We have visited Ithaca a few times and this is the third restaurant on the same street block that we liked. This was, so far, the best. The meal was a complete culinary treat, from the bread with its amazing tomato, basil,... More

Loved our waitress and our food! App good. Bison baked ziti was terrific! Definitely a place to go for different menu choices as well as standards! It was not wherewe were originally intending to go but we were pretty happy we inadvertently ended up at the Mahogany grill. One small negative was that the otherwaiters seemed to be spending a...

Poor service, OK food that is significantly over-priced, and an atmosphere that you expect to be more elegant from its outside appearance than when you get inside. As an example of the service: we did not even get asked if we wanted a drink before dinner. The waiter came to take the food order. My husband had to ask me... More

Mahogany Grill is an upscale bar with a nice restaurant. Dined here recently for brunch. Nice menu selection - lots to choose from and both breakfast and lunch oriented foods were very good. Restaurant is adorned with local school memorabilia. Well located at the "bottom of the hill" and 1/2 block from Ithaca Commons.
