The Moosewood was such a fabulous find for us as we were touring the Ithaca, NY area! We LOVED their relaxed yet refined vibe with super yummy locally sourced and organic menu options!! We enjoyed sitting on their open-aired patio over lunch while listening to a very accomplished pianist who completely our dining experience perfectly!!

I have stacks of beloved, well-used Moosewood cookbooks. Eating at the iconic restaurant has long been on my culinary bucket list. I wanted to see firsthand the place that Bon Appetit named one of the thirteen most influential restaurants of the 20th century and earned a James Beard American Classic award. I didn't expect anything revelatory, just tasty, inventive, and... More

We recently changed our life style and new to the vegan world. At Moosewood we had plenty to select from! The staff was friendly and provided us great suggestions. The food was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend.

We've been to Moosewood several times, have the poster, the cookbooks......this trip was just a little less enjoyable than others. The waitress was efficient & clear-eyed. we tried some entrees & some sides. I, personally would appreciate a more extensive menu. The salad was mounded on a too-small plate with not-enough dressing. The soup was tasty but only warm, the... More

The reputation is certainly there. And they know it. Portions are small. Price is high. Yes, the food tastes good, but not exceptional. The ingredients are fresh, and trendily low in "unnatural" elements, but that is not important to me. It seems to be very important to the (snobbish) staff and patrons. When I ordered a brownie and cup of... More

Moosewood is famous for their vegetarian fare and I was not disappointed. Fresh, delicious and I picked up a nice cookbook. The owners are friendly and the service was quick and friendly.

I have known about this restaurant for many years but have never been able to go until now. I actually forgot it was there until my husband rattled off a list of restaurants when deciding where to eat. I was not disappointed - the food was wonderful! The only disappointment was that the chai tea was not yet ready and... More

You know the cookbooks, now get to know the restaurant. Reservations are preferred. Vegetarian/ vegan at its best. We came over the Christmas holidays and managed to get seating in the evening. We had a fussy teen, a picky 8 yr old and four adults who are foodies. All were happy with their choices. Best PB & J the youngest... More

After owning a Moosewood cookbook for years, this restaurant was a must visit. The food was wonderful but the atmosphere was a bit lacking.

For me it was ok, I wish they had a bit more options and the food can be pricy. A lot of people seem to love it here though
