Off the beaten path of Cornell

Ithaca is a foodie haven and having gone to Cornell and sent two of my children to Cornell I have had a chance to eat at some amazing restaurants over the years. My daughter recommended hazlenut and it was worth the twenty minute drive. Trumansburg is a cute little upstate NY village but the... read more

The restaurant serves outstanding dishes. It doesn't matter if you are talking about the hand churned butter, the homemade rolls, soups or main courses; it is all outstanding. Of special note is the unbelievably fresh and well presented calamari to the very unusual tomato pie with fresh corn ice cream. They are all outstanding and much more than you would... More

This restaurant was one of the best meals we had while on a weekend getaway to the Finger Lakes. The food was delicious and inventive. We were so upset that we had a snack before going, cause we couldn't even finish our meals! We will definitely visit again.

Inventive dishes, farm to table fresh in season ingredients, house made pasta. Distinctive tasteful decor with open kitchen. We were considering to go back the next night.

This small restaurant in the finger Lakes had good food and a friendly ambiance, almost as if you were eating at a friend's house. The dishes were creative with multiple ingredients. They offer a tasting menu with surprise dishes.

Rave food. We ate at a 4 seat bar area overlooking the chefs at work because all the tables were reserved. We had the grilled watermelon, tomato, arugula salad to start which was so delicious and were treated to the little neck clam daily chefs special which was served over a base of with sweet corn and bits of house...

I don't disagree with other reviewers about the food, which was fine. The service was friendly and efficient. What we didn't care for was the atmosphere/decor. We were seated in a booth across from the open kitchen, with a prep table in between. It felt like we were sitting in a hallway, especially given the noise level. Just a matter... More

Service and food were both five stars. We didn't have reservations so we sat at the counter. It was fascinating to watch these fine cooks put meals together like clockwork! One of the best restaraunts we have ever been to.

We decided to explore this trip and check out dining options not visited. East Seneca Lake is our home from home so this was about 25 minutes away. Had we known what was ahead we would have driven faster to arrive. Not one detail was missed. From our arrival to placing our napkins on the table at the end it... More

The awning outside doesn't begin to tell you want a wonderful time eating fresh, delicious food you'll have once you enter. Some of the finest farm-to-table and other local food are across the entire menu. And they are prepared in interesting and delectable ways! Always check out the specials board. Plenty of fine and local wines (and beer, though I... More
