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

Writing about the Moosewood - The Moosewood - is pretty challenging. Fact is, we've been here several times, and while it's good to very good, I just haven't found it to be special. This last time, the service got in the way of my appreciating the experience (dirty side dishes that needed to be replaced, wrong utensils, general inattention to... More

Moosewood is an iconic vegetarian restaurant with excellent cooking. Second time there (last time was a few years ago), this time had a caulifower, cheese, & tomato soup, followed by a main course of tuscan beans, polenta cakes, and kale. Both were delicious. I love this restaurant!

The delicious and healthy selection of food here for a reasonable price is good, but the ambiance is plain, odd, and on the arty side.

This legendary restaurant, of the famed Moosewood cookbook series, has for four decades been an ambassador for healthful local fare with a vegetarian bent. Located in Dewitt Mall the heart of downtown, the place at first glance underwhelmed, looking in need of a makeover. But then, that '70s "woody" decor is part of its identity. I ordered a salad, an... More
