One of the better dining experiences I've had in Ithaca!

This is a nice dining experience, it really is. I wish I would have known beforehand to share my order, because the portions are large and can easily be split without anyone going hungry. I had a nice, romantic dinner with my husband. The ambiance is great, and the waiter we had was both... read more

The service was good, as was the steak (which my parents had) and scallops (which I had), but the lamb (friend had) had to be sent back twice. The cheesecake wasn't really NY cheesecake, more whipped cheesecake, and the creme brûlée was not what it should be. The key lime pie was good though, as were the pomegranate martinis.

Dinner for four. Everyone had great prime rib or steak. Service was excellent. Sides are a la carte and large enough for two. Bottle of wine, four entrees, three sides and a couple of deserts. Tab of $400 including the tip, so this is not an everyday dining experience, but definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion.

My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at this Restaurant. The Steak was well prepared, the meat of outstanding quality. We shared a bottle of local red wine which complimented the food perfectly. The service could not have been better. There were five desserts to choose from. We selected a chocolate and a cheese cake - both enjoyable.... More

Went here one night for a birthday, our group was one of the only groups there due to a snowstorm outside. It was a lovely evening with excellent food and excellent service.

I found this steakhouse to be such a quaint and wonderful place to experience great service and food in total leisure. A little high priced, but meals and sides can be shared.

Guests at the hotel so this was an easy choice. We shared the Porterhouse for 2, and shared a veg & an order of garlic mashed. Steak was cooked perfectly. Service was very good also. For dessert we split a cheesecake. Very nice place!
