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.

We visited on a very busy Halloween night - Parents' Weekend at Cornell - but took a table outside even though it was chilly. they have heaters but could use a couple of the tall ones at the front edge of the dining area. In spite of that and a slightly overcooked filet we'll definitely be back. Our group ordered... More

Visiting Ithaca College with a friend and our daughters we decided to stop in for an early dinner. Hostess was happy and nice and sat us right away. Waitress was extremely pleasant and professional. The fresh baked bread with dipping sauce was AMAZING. I could have just eaten that. We ordered burgers, mac and cheese and pasta Primavera. Everyone loved... More
