This restaurant is #1 in Ithaca according to Trip Advisor. I have several co-workers who live nearby so I decided I would purchase gift certificates for them for Christmas. After I paid for the gift cards I asked the waitress if she had paper copies...of the menu that I could put in the envelope with the gift cards. It was at that time she informed me that today was the last day the restaurant would be open until approximately March 1st. I wish she had said that before I paid for the gift cards. Now I need to find something else to give since there are no guarantees this restaurant will reopen.More

This place was excellent. The food is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it. A large menu full of items, I had a hard time choice g because many seemed so delicious. My food was excellent. I got the short rib Benedict...and it was fantastic. If I’m ever in the area I will definitely be back!More

Their menu was super varied -- everything from classic Thai noodle bowls, to steaks, to sandwiches. The food is beautifully presented and its apparent much thought was put into each dish. The chef came out to speak to the patrons at each table, which was...a really nice touch.More

The food here was absolutely exceptional! I never thought I'd be raving about a plate of Brussels sprouts, yet here I am... get them! Other small plates that blew our minds: the scallops, the potato hash, and the arugula flat bread. We were only in...town 2 nights and seriously had to force ourselves not to come back here for dinner number 2.More

My wife and I love the Ithaca area and since we found Mix in 2018 we keep going back. Each trip is planned so we can take in some hiking between visits to Mix Kitchen and bar. Our last trip was a few weeks ago...(Oct. '20). They did a great job with distancing and the staff wore masks all the time. But let's talk food since that's probably what you are reading this for. 1. We had the Asian Steak Skewers - phenomenal. So tender! The fried rice had an excellent flavor and texture with bits of crispy pork belly. The sauce is boss! 2. Soulful mac and cheese. This dish has a lot goung on. Served sizzling in a cast iron skillet. Bits of pork, jalapeno corn bread, drizzled onions, yum! 3. Crispy Bao Buns. Simple ingredients/complex flavor profile. Soft bao buns deep fried and folded like a taco. The slaw is perfectly dressed and cuts right through. Hard to beat! 4. Perfect short ribs eggs Benedict. The egg was cooked perfectly. Fork tender short rib with wine reduction under a blanket of hollandaise. These were just a few highlights. We ate there 5x in a weekend. Can't wait to go back.More

My husband and I spent the night in Ithaca. I picked MIX Kitchen and Bar because of positive reviews and reasonable prices. I’m glad I did!! I had Sea Scallop Saute and my husband had Sriracha Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffle and they were delicious!!...I’d love to come back here again and try different plates. Highly recommendation.More

I went with my large family (me, my wife, five kids). Everyone had enough to eat and everyone loved the food. I got the chicken fried steak omelet (the Athens Omelet for some reason - maybe Athens, Georgia?) and a side of fries and they...were all delicious. Service was a little slow, but that just gave us more time to be together. The portions were large but not too large. This was my second time here and both times I have enjoyed it. We ate inside and it looked like the restaurant was doing a great job with COVID precautions.More
