Extensive tapas menu, nice selection of entrees, great desserts. We ate here for the first time on our anniversary and it was a memorable dinner. Service was outstanding without being annoying, the place is nicely decorated, and there was a live jazz combo playing (sat. evening). Perfect dinner.

They're calling themselves and Asian restaurant so we thought it would be a good place to get Chicken Satay. It was very disappointing, quite bland. Also, the wine pour was small.

We happened upon this place and were pleasantly surprised. Great vegetarian choices! Also good seafood. We got the vegan chocolate dessert which was rich and quite good.

Ithaca is a small city with incredible places to eat. We were in Ithaca for 5 days and this was the best dinner we had (look at my profile and you can see where else we ate). Our ArBnB host recommended this place and we made reservations shortly thereafter. We sampled a large swath of the menu including the lotus... More

My husband and I shared several tapas dishes. The wontons, a roast pork special, kofta, sweet potato fries and roast duck puff pastry. The fries tasted like regular fries to me but the other tapas were excellent. Nice interior and the final bill was very reasonable.

Stopped here for dinner on an overnight visit to Cornell University. Good variety of items on the menu to suit all tastes. Service was excellent. Not fancy but definitely worth the visit.

I took my husband to Mia for his birthday since they were the only restaurant in town (that we've been able to find) that offers moo prig pow (a thai pork dish), his all-time favorite dish. We started by sharing the Tom Kha soup and an order of their sweet potato fries with truffle oil. The soup was delicious, but... More

Upon walking around the town, we stumbled upon this Restaurant. The waiters were very courteous and explained to us how to order, from the tapas menu or the entrees side. Only one person in our party got an entree, and the rest of us got tapas and were pleased with the food. Everything tasted amazing. The restaurant was very nice... More

We went for a late dinner. My wife ate from the tapas menu (roast duck puff pastry samosa) while I ate from the entree list (Koay Teow Kaeg – Thai-Indian style beef ramen noodle soup, bean sprouts, crispy shallots). Both were delicious. My ramen was spicy, but not over-powering. We would definitely go back again.

It was a celebratory dinner as a young niece had just graduated from Cornell. We were 9 of us & were given a round table on the first floor. We had 1 round of drinks before dinner & ordered their White wine special which turned out to be great. I had the quail as an appetizer which was a little... More
