They are proud about their steaks. We went for sea food and salad. Sea food was excellent (octopus and red snapper). As far as salad goes, their shef likes smoked gouda. I would prefer mozzarella or even provolone.

We visited the restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. The menu was varied and the service was excellent. We had both the duck and the short rib sliders which were outstanding. Great flavors! The place has a funky upbeat athmosphere...which adds much to the experience. We would recommend this place.More

Delicious food with artful presentation. We got the asparagus strudel and the pork bao buns, which were very good, but the soulful mac and cheese was out of this world. I'd go back just for that. Service was very good . Interesting drink selection.

Mix will please the vegetarians, vegans, gluten free and all diners. It is a great place to take fussy eaters who can find something they like on the extensive menu. Our server Mouro was most attentive and helpful.

Just outside of the Ithaca congestion, smaller free parking lot. Nicely curated bar menu. Small plates, Steaks, noodle bowls, sandwiches. Something for everyone. Very yummy. Salads are very large.

Perfect. Due to the pandemic and some personal issues, we have not been to Mix in a couple of years. While it has evolved, it’s still great. Good service. Excellent food. Quite an extensive menu. Everything we had was terrific. We ate outdoors and were...dry pleased.More

We stopped in here for brunch over the weekend and were glad we did. The mimosas were a great start; the variety of fruit juices offered for them are impressive and delicious. I ordered the shrimp and cheesy grits, which were quite tasty. The brunch...menu has a wide variety of both sweet and savory options; whatever you're in the mood for!More

Service was excellent. Wine they served us was the wrong vintage. Mussels tasted too fishy and were clearly old. Prices were about average. Menu was far too large.

Mix undoubtedly has the most extensive menu in Ithaca for Breakfast and Lunch. It is indeed extraordinary. My wife and I enjoyed a late morning breakfast there today, and we were not disappointed. She had an excellent French Toast, accompanied by both maple and raspberry...syrups. I ordered the Mardi Gras City Omelet, with shrimp, andouille sausage, bell peppers and Creole seasoning, accompanied by oatmeal with brown sugar and a potato casserole. Delightful! Hot cups of steaming coffee and herbal tea made the meal. Stella's service was outstanding.More

The service was impeccable (thank you, Matt!), and the food was delicious. We started with the Thai Mussels which were delicious. My daughter ordered a Thai Noodle Bowl with fried tofu. There were so many options with these bowls - truly a make-your-own meal. This...was amazing - very much a comfort meal. I ordered the Salmon Strozzapreti Pasta; the flavors and textures of this dish were unusual in a good way - quite delicious. My daughter and I switched plates for a while; I don't know which meal I preferred! For dessert, we ordered a pecan bread pudding that we both loved.More

Great food from varied and eclectic menu. Friendly service and attentive. The owner, Mix,was the front person and greeted everyone and then spent time after the meal. We had the grilled octopus, duck Quesadillas and two noodle bowls, all delicious!

The food was great but the place looks more like a diner than a fine restaurant. It was not Covid "friendly". The tables were not spaced out, there weren't dividers, or any "protections" that I could tell and I was a little uncomfortable sitting in...there. However, the food was great.More
