“Terrible service. Mediocre food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

They did not sufficiently cool the restaurant down and it was very unpleasantly warm.
The food is mediocre at best.

“Best steaks in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Tucked away behind some trees, this country house offers a range of excellent steaks and seafood. The very best Surf & Turf I have ever had. Friendly and knowledgeable service.

Big drinks, great steak, good service. Price is higher than most in Ithaca but you get value.

“The best steak ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We've dined at many steak restaurants in New York City and Boca Raton, Florida and have never had a NY Strip/Shell/Loin [whatever your name for that cut is] as good as at John Thomas 2 days ago. The service was fabulous as were the side dishes - don't miss the mushrooms! Desserts were terrific too and we were delighted with a very good $30 bottle of wine. Not expensive considering the quality, service and atmosphere.

“A wonderful "room service" meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We were staying at La Tourelle - next door to the restaurant -- and were with our two dogs. I went to John Thomas to see if they could pack me up some food, and they did much, much better than that. They took my order and delivered it to the room.

My steak was perfectly cooked, and Her Ladyship enjoyed her divers' scallops. The fresh asparagus and button mushrooms were also delicious.

Service was great -- but you forgot my iced tea. I'll "collect" it when we next return to Ithaca.
