Came here with my vegan teen daughter on a recent college road trip. It's a bright airy restaurant and this is a must visit for anyone who has a copy of any Moosewood cookbook. We started with the cups and dip and moved onto the stuffed eggplant and ended with the vegan chocolate cake. All delicious! Great service. I'd visit... More

The cookbook is legendary. The restaurant not so much. Bland soup. Good bread and dessert. Family friendly.

Moosewood is one of those places you have to visit at least once in Ithaca. Their lunch menu is especially good, with changing specials and a great range of veggie burgers, fish cakes, sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts. The evening menu tends to be slightly smaller but expect dishes like jambalaya, veggie bibimbap, vegan friendly pasta dishes, and usually a... More

When we are in the area we never miss an opportunity to eat at Moosewood. It's amazing and such a famous place to eat in Ithaca. And you don't need to be a vegetarian to enjoy their offerings. And they have great beers and ciders on draft and a very respectable wine and spirits list! And if you like the... More

We stopped in to Moosewood for a quick lunch after a college visit. The weather was terrible, with wind and snow. The restaurant is bright and cheery, if a little bland in decor. The waitstaff was pleasant and relatively attentive. I had the Thai Salmon cake sandwich, which was nice and moist, but lacking of a whole lot of flavor.... More

Yes... you will find veg food here. VERY delicious. When I went there originally, I didn't know there was a cookbook or anything, but there it is, and it's still there!

I had heard so much from others and people have raved about the cookbook. My partner has wanted to go to Moosewood for so long and was excited. I ordered the special of huevos rancheros and it was okay. I actually thought of something else but thought I would try the special. My partner loved what she had, which was... More

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!!
