Try the bean burger! Amazing! Cute cafe. All vegetarian. Great atmosphere and a nice place to grab a bite.

I was filled w. anticipation 2 eat @ Moosewood. My Mom cooks from the cookbook. I cook from the cookbook. It's a thing. The food is clean and fresh. The portions are conservative - which makes sense. The service I found attentive and flawless. But the last bites of peanut noodle salad tasted moldy so I can't give 5 stars.... More

We've been coming here for over 25 years and always enjoy it! Last night we enjoyed salmon with a lemon sauce and fiddle heads and more...nice relaxing setting at the Dewitt mall...a short walk from the Commons...totally worth our two hour drive to get here!

As a vegetarian, you always want to love vegetarian restaurants and give them great reviews - and usually the food is excellent. (I also wanted to love it as a fellow raging liberal - I loved the signs in the window lol.) But this place was very disappointing. Most of the food was tasteless. I'll start with the good. I...

Moosewood Restaurant has gone sadly downhill. The menu is minimally varied. Dishes are way too thick with carbs and the actual vegetables are scanty. Salads come with almost no dressing. There were 3 soups on the menu, but turned out only two were available though we were there early in the evening. Server was minimally trained and not interested in... More

We had dinner here last night as we always stop in here whenever we are anywhere close. The food is always excellent and they have local beers on tap. If you are ok with vegetarian options or are a vegetarian this is a really great place to eat

For scheduling reasons, I ate here at the Sunday Brunch hour, and while I'd have preferred a heartier menu, the minestrone soup and the ginger beverage were sublime! The Spring Salad was delicious, but HUGE, and I'd have preferred half the greens (if I'd been with others, we could have shared) and the addition of something more substantive--but no one... More

Who wouldn't visit Moosewood when in Ithaca, especially if their cookbook got you on your way to your very first independent cooking? (As it did for me -- zucchini quiche with 2 college housemates.) So naturally my husband and I stopped in to pay tribute to its iconic status. We had lunch there, and then, just to confirm our impressions,... More

This restaurant came highly recommended, and it did not disappoint. The staff was polite, and welcoming. We had tofu wings with jerk sauce, guacamole and black bean salsa, and a salad. Everything was delicious. The tofu was amazing. We ended the meal with homemade ice cream, and a latte.

Even though I am a happy carnivore, most of my family is not. I have been a long-time fan of the Moosewood cookbooks - satisfying meals for the vegetarians in my life that I also enjoy and that are easily supplemented with meat for myself. We enjoyed the daily specials on our visit. Red pepper bisque had a welcome bite... More
