I sat at the bar, and I'm glad I did. The bartender was super friendly and full of spot-on recommendations. Everything was perfect, from my delicious strawberry mocktail to the filet mignon. I haven't had a good steak in a while, and mine was cooked...perfectly, but I think the friendly service was really the icing on the cake. I will be back next time I'm in Ithaca.More

We've been told by many Mix is the Togo spot. Wr went fir brunch, arrived about 10:45, they were very busy. There is no organization to check in to get your name on a list. We ended up waiting about 45 minutes, not bad overall....Food was good but not sure great. I had short rib eggs benedict, didn't love the cornbread but everything was good. My wife had western omelette. Not impressed as it had too much veggies, it seemed like there was no egg. The pancake is huge, even our IC students loved it. We'll go back but won't be my top choice.More

On a visit to Ithaca, we stopped here for dinner. While the restaurant is nothing special to look at inside or out, the menu is unusually eclectic and the food was good

For trip advisor making this number one, i am quite disappointed in how my friday evening went. I usually do not write reviews but i felt this was necessary. First and foremost we had to wait at least 10 min to be seated because we...could not find a host in a not very busy place, we were seated by the bar and the music was loud and some sort of fan was on that was louder and it was hard for us to even talk to one another, we were greeted by our server and given water with a rotten green leaf in it( unsure of the herb) not impressed,we asked for new water but never received it. we then ordered drinks and a few of the small plates suggested even though our sever told us they haven’t even tried half the menu! so they couldn’t give us any true recommendations. apparently employees can’t order food and try it. we watched everyone around us receive bread of some sort and our server never brought us any. we were never checked on and they never asked how our meal was until bringing us our bill. we got the blue corn calamari and the duck quesadilla. calamari was soggy, sauce was good, quesadilla was over dressed and soggy as well! our drinks were the highlight of our night! the cock tails were creative. We decided to not order entrees and decided to finish dinner elsewhere. Not impressed and very disappointed because we were told this was a great place and we finally had the time to come out and try! don’t recommend unless you’re going to the bar!More

Our server was very nice, but given the reviews, I was disappointed in the food. Not much duck in the duck quesadilla, and my friend said more shell than mussel. Wok fried cauliflower was best thing we ate.

What a fantastic place! My family and friends met here last night from Arizona for an amazing dinner. The owner herself came out to the dining floor and personally asked how we were enjoying our evening and my Tom Kha Gai 🌈 From the speciality...drinks at the bar to super delicious food at the table.

"Kitchen and bar" is probably a good description. The menu comprises four pages, and two of them are drinks. A good portion of another is appetizers. Your options for dinner are a couple of salads, slabs of red meat, double burgers (single is not an...option), or Thai noodle bowls. With such limited options you can choose to do as our server suggested and order multiple appetizers instead of a main - note that few are under $15, and they go as high as $26. We had a filet mignon (ordered medium, served fully red) with house-made steak sauce, asparagus, and cheddar hash browns. The asparagus was the winner on that plate. The second order was a coconut green Thai noodle bowl, fairly spicy, and if you're not looking for bok choi soup not a good option. Overall...nah. If you want drinks and fancy appetizers, fine, know what you're getting yourself into, but not for dinner.More

Wait-staff was prompt, courteous, and attentive. It's not a run of the mill menu but very flavorful and unique. Reasonably priced.

We all ordered different types of food and we all loved our dishes. Our server was excellent. Drinks were great. Food so full of flavor. Restaurant from outside is not impressive but hold tight, food is worth the trip inside. Enjoy!

It’s one of those places that’s full of themselves. Food was just ok and the vibe was odd. Our waiter talked up all the food as expected but the swordfish was overly spiced and not to our taste. The decor was ver off putting.

To start with normally I'm not a huge breakfast fan. I think it's a pretty basic meal but this place took it to a new level for me. Went there 2 days in a row while we were in town and they didn't disappoint. The...first day I had the biscuits and gravy with eggs which were very good but their hash brown casserole was excellent and service was great. The second day I decided to be more adventurous and ordered Where the West Begins Omelet. The flavors blended together perfectly and I would highly recommend. First day my boyfriend had one salmon Benedict and one ham Benedict. He loved the ham but wouldn't order the salmon again. The second day he had the City by the Bay Omelet and loved it. Would definitely try for lunch but were too full from breakfast!More

My husband and I had a nice dinner at the bar. Great service by the bartender. The food ranged from good to very good. We enjoyed the calamari and the unusual fried cauliflower dish, although we probably wouldn’t have ordered 2 friend dishes if we...had noticed the cauliflower was also fried. The lamb chops were delicious, with excellent sides. Great dirty martini, also. My only complaint is that the decor is incoherent and off putting. I assume it is meant to evoke “the mix”, as the menu includes foods from various cultures, but the result is a bit gaudy and ostentatious.More
