Ithaca >Mahogany Grill
Very average food in a place with a nice decor and good service. First time visiting Ithaca and restaurant...looked nice from the outside which invited my wife and I to try the place...the inside is also nice except for the men's bathroom which is very small (probably will not accommodate any one obese) with a very small sink and dirty floor...seating was very quick and the hostess was very pleasant and smiling throughout...the waitress was also pleasant...the service was mediocre to good compare with other restaurants in its class...my wife ordered the seafood special which was very average and I ordered a seafood entree also which was average...the overall presentation was poor (plate was too small for the food and toppings were just thrown across the plate)...the food quality was average and the flavors of the fish and uncooked onions and peppers did not go well with the overal tast of the entree....the rice was okay with little flavor...the fish portions were a good size....the salad befoe the entree were good and fresh...the lettuce was not wilted and not cold (which I don't like)...the dressng was unique and tasty...overall, we were expecting a much better quality entree items given the expectations one develops at the entrance i.e. food on the menu sound much better than the tast...my wife and I were not able to finish either of our entrees...We did not feel the meal was truly memorable but we hope to try other restaurants in Ithaca in the near future...LOL
Fantastic Brunch. Mahogany Grill is one of my favorite places for brunch. Good atmosphere and great service. I highly recommend the eggs benedict. Dinner is good as well, but I feel brunch is their specialty.
Average food, great time. Nothing's going to blow you away at the Mahogany. Most of the stuff tastes like the frozen distributor fare you'd find at most places like the Mahogany, but the staff is top-notch and go out of they're way to make it special.
Casual and Classy. The Grill is definitely a crossroads on the Commons. The menu has enough diversity to satisfy this vibrant town. From lobster to pork bbq, everything is a hit. Try the sweet potato fries. The bar side is always packed on weekends with college students and the outside seating is perfect on one of those rare sunny days in Ithaca.
