We meet clients and friends at the Mahogany Grill a few times a year; always consistent and great food and drink. Servers are well trained and attentive to clients and able to make solid recommendations when asked. Menu a bit predictable in terms of steak, meatloaf, sandwiches but occasionally a surprise like gnocchi, hummus, and mussels. Have never been disappointed... More

This reminds me of the old style paneled restaurant with the white table cloths and darker interior. The food was good as we all had something and all liked the entrees. A little on the pricier side but not overly so.

Overall, a nice experience at the Mahogany Grill - we were seated quickly on a busy family weekend, and our food was good. The staff was very attentive. Three different waitstaff worked our table as a team. The pricing is a bit high ($12 for mac and cheese), but everything was tasty.

In Ithaca around lunch time. Not sure where to eat and walked the Commons to S.Aurora St where Restaurants line the street. Picked the Mahogany. Cozy interior and nice table by window. Food was good, especially sweet potato fries and ruben. Hamburg rather tasteless. All very pricey to include $7.00 for a beer. Not crowded mid week and in November.... More

We visited this restaurant on the Cornell parents weekend so everything was packed. We had to wait around 40 minutes to be seated. Once we ordered, food didn't take that much to get to our table but besides all food was tasty for me it was a little overpriced. When you order meat, you will get just the meat alone... More

Our family went to the Mahogany Grill for an early dinner. Since we were in between the lunch and dinner rushes we got to pick our table on the patio. They also let us choose from both the lunch and dinner menus. I had the potato gnocchi, my daughter had the jumbo shrimp scampi, my husband had the Mahogany burger... More

Our son tells us there are more restaurants per square mile in Ithaca than anywhere else. Propaganda aside, if this is the #3 restaurant I'm not sure I want to try all the rest. The food was good, but nothing I would I would rave about. The salads each of had were very good. The entrees were fine. Two of... More

Everywhere was packed due to IC family weekend and Commons breakfast thing but they were well prepared. Short wait to get in and we were not rushed at all. Mahogany burger very good. Ruben excellent. Chicken salad also very good. Sweet potatoe fries, coleslaw and some other sides all good. Spicy calamari was a treat.

We went to Ithaca just to shop. Unbeknownst to us there was a huge Harry Potter event going on with thousands of people. Restaurants were very busy. We settled on the Mahogany Grill and we're very glad we did. Had their French onion soup, New England clam chowder and a burger. Everything was excellent. Even though we had to wait... More
