My husband and I ate dinner at Simeon's before a show at the State Theater. The staff was friendly, and they quickly agreed to make a slight change to a cocktail for me. We loved the selection of food, from the local greens to the...More

We had the fresh mussels, oysters and both were very fresh. Service was great. We had linguine with clams and several specials. Everyone was highly satisfied with the food. It was nice to sit in the corner where you have Two windows to the commons.

Though not very busy for a beautiful summer evening, our meal was A+. The service was wonderful. We had the beets and kettle chips fondue, rabbit (I'd like it better as a confit, but it was tender and the dish was interesting.) The greens salad...More

A few years back, Simeon's was the most unwelcoming place in Ithaca, with food that didn't justify the elitist vibe. My wife and I stopped even trying to go. I wrote an accurate review at the time. Fast forward five years, Simeon's is now not...More

We scheduled a graduation celebration dinner for 9. It was top notch in every way. The special cocktails were imaginative and well executed. The appetizers were passed around and appreciated, especially the seasonal ramps - foraged by our own waitress, no less. The main courses...More
