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

My family enjoyed a Sunday afternoon while visiting upstate New York. I made a very easy and convenient reservation via Open Table. I have been wanting to eat at this James Beard and Bon Appetit award winning dining establishment for quite some time even more so now that I am a vegan. There is a very casual atmosphere, very family... More

I was attending a family wedding about 1 1/2 hours away -- which meant I had to detour for this visit. It was more than worth it -- so much so that we stopped in again on our return trip. The food was amazing -- as I expected it to be.

The most attentive friendly helpful staff of any restaurant I've been in. The food is superb also. Best latte I have ever had. The mushroom soup, the salmon cake and the pumpkin 🎃 cheesecake were all perfect.

I have had a couple of Moosewood Collective cookbooks over the years, and couldn't resist the opportunity to eat at the restaurant. I easily got a table for lunch on a Saturday. I ate one of their daily specials, and highly recommend the feta garlic salad dressing and the marinated chickpeas. I topped it off with a glass of local... More

So enjoyed the Christmas decor, welcoming wait staff and of course the food. I had deliciously hot vegetable pea soup to start. My main dish - a Moosewood favorite - Shrimp with Grits. Visually appealing and very happy taste buds. I had enough to bring home half. I finished with a hot cup of their special Ginger Tea. Just perfect!... More
