My wife and I were in Ithaca for a college softball event and were looking for a place for lunch. I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and thanks to all my fellow reviewers for pointing me to this gem. The atmosphere is wood – lots of wood paneling but for lunch it was not dark – plenty of light coming in through the big picture windows. Our cups of Lobster Bisque were excellent. Our sandwiches, the Rubin and the French Dip were both very good served with sweet potato fries. Service was fast and friendly both at the table and at the door. If you are looking for nice lunch in Ithaca, I’m with my fellow Tripadvior contributors - the Mahogany Grill is very good.
