Surreal but Good

We went here as we were staying at the La Tourelle. My crab starter was really good bit my hobbies baked brie was just ok. The steaks however were really good and cooked perfectly. The servers were a little surreal, we did feel like we were in the Stepford Wives, however we did find this amusing... read more

We went to this restaurant couple times 3 years ago when my son studied at Cornell University. We decided to dine there again now while staying in LaTourelle for 2 days on July. We dined there at 8 PM on Sunday July 5/th. We already knew the prices were high so this was not a surprise since this is the... More

Lump crab starter to share was fantastic.My wife and I shared a 14 ounce filet which was plenty for both of us and excellent. Pecan pie dessert was very tasty, but could've used a better crust. A minor detail. Staff was very good

I visited John Thomas Steakhouse last evening and was, once again, impressed by the service, quality of the food, size of the portions, and ambience. It's expensive but I think the value is there. My loin lamb chops were $45 and were ample size and cooked the way I ordered them. I took one of the two chops home in... More

We had dinner here when we stayed at the firelight camps. As a former server I am hyper conscious of the service I am getting when out. This service was exceptional. The food was wonderful and they overheard us talking about our recent marriage (the week before) and sent out a complimentary dessert. It is old-school in the best way.

For graduation weekend in Ithaca reservations open on January 2nd. A $25 dollar per person deposit is required. Our reservation was for the 2nd floor. It was a warm day and the air conditioner was being taxed. We were a party of eight celebrating both graduation and the graduate's birthday. We began our meal with a celebratory toast of champagne...

Came here to celebrate sons graduation. Could not have picked a better place. Staff were wonderful and very attentive without being over bearing. Well informed about menu choices. The food was very good. Location looked to be an old house, very comfortable dining.

John Thomas is a steakhouse located on the same piece of property as the LaTourelle Resort. It seems to be an old style farmhouse - nicely maintained but its maybe a bit on the aged side...creaky floors, small rooms.. I found it a bit charming . The menu is what you'd expect from a steakhouse and it also offers seafood......I'm... More

Food is ok but for the price it should be awesome. The atmosphere is nice but not great for what is supposed to be a high end restaurant. I should have known when my shrimp appetizer was overcooked good flavor but chewy like rubber. I will never go again.
