This is a small place with very high quality food. I've come here with vegetarians and meat eaters and everyone seemed to truly enjoy the food despite it's mostly vegetarian menu. The food is always cooked fresh and the menu is limited and changes daily. Since it's so popular the tables fill up fast, so definitely call ahead on the... More

My wife, having one of the Moosewood cookbooks made this a must stop. Our first time here and I am not a vegan. However, I did enjoy the food very much. Had my heart set on the soup of the day, sweet potato but, alas, it was all gone when we ordered. Our server said the Minestrone was great. Well,... More

Had cookbook from many years ago, but a little underwhelmed. Menu much more smaller than expected (lunch). Average location/setting. Service a bit slow. Delicious potato kale soup. Salad overloaded with way too many red onions and dried cranberries, but dressing and the rest was great.

Although a 'legend' it lived up to all expectations. The setting is a bit pedestrian, but the food makes up for it.

My traveling group was very interested to eat here. It is mythic in some circles and there have been rumblings that it was just getting by on its reputation. We found that it was quite good. The food was fresh and well prepared. If we had 1 complaint, it was that the menu was more conventional than we expected. More... More

while it may not be as amazing as my memory of this place seems to be, it was still a nice night out. the food was fine, service was great, and the restaurant interior is still very nice. I believe our waitresses name was Katarina and Meredith. Both were great, came by just the right amount of times and very... More

Great place, great food, great service! We were in town for just 4 days, we had dinner there twice. They also have a series of cook books with the wonderful dishes they serve. We purchased one hope I can make some of the wonderful dishes we had there and more. Should we get back to the area, we will definately... More

Good tasty vegetarian food with very fresh vegetables. Ambiance is good, but always over crowded, especially on weekends.So better to get prior reservation. A bit pricey restaurant but with valid student id they will give 10% discount from Monday-Thursday! Service was not so good & slow too.

Friends from overseas had heard of Moosewood and wanted to visit. They are such "foodies' that one of their family had her cakes praised in an issue of a flight magazine. Having seen some recent disappointed reviews I was a bit nervous about the plan. Sould not have worried. Our food was excellent --fresh ingredients from nearby farms and creamery,... More

My husband and I added this detour on our trip to Boston after years of cooking from a few Moosewood Cookbooks. We were not disappointed. My husband got Gado Gado and felt his vegetables were perfectly cooked and the taste was delicious. He also got a Strawberry lemonade which was good, but not worth the price. I ordered the portabella... More
