establishment reviews from OpenTable diners
  • OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/1/2014
    main dish was very undercooked (the potatoes). some female servers weren't very professional (hugging friend guests and chatting with them for an extended time? i understand they're friends, but wasn't very professional at all). overall, though, i'm have pretty great experiences at establishment (it's just so cool that it's entirely run by students!), and thanks for the work you put in.

    The specials for the seoul food event at the establishment were not that great, but the regulars (dashi salmon and truffle fries) that we got were splendid. I think that you have to take the specials with a grain of salt.

    Once again, I had a fantastic time at the Establishment, supporting my friends Ari and Francesca! The food was amazing and the service was stellar, as per usual! I enjoy the concept of the Establishment and will certainly be back next year to try out the different dinners! The service of the Hotel students is always on point and I am very impressed with the training they receive! :)

    They run out of specials 1.5 hrs before close, not cool. Especially because we went there for the specials! Service was OK, however stuff seemed to be inexperienced. People were too loud but overall it was a good experience.

    Establishment is a restaurant on the campus of Cornell University, managed and fully staffed by students of Cornell's School of Hotel Management. Prices are reasonable; staff is enthusiastic; management is competent and the food is very good. It is a pleasant dining experience! Kudos to the college students!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/24/2014
    I loved that the setting was very intimate and set the mood for a date night out, but the food reminded me of home, in terms of the slow-cooked, tender meat in a velvety broth. I had wine paired with my dish as well, so it complemented the pork nicely, and the dessert was a rich, creamy finish.

    I enjoyed my dinner greatly. We had a wonderful table overlooking spring blooms in the garden outside. My recommendations: the Establishment is well known in the Hotel school, but other guests would find directions very useful. It is a little tucked away. A better entrance would help!

    I ordered the hibachi chicken and rice special and it was delicious. I am so glad that I ordered the special and I was a fan of the establishment. I had never been there before and I am glad I decided to go. I plan on going to the establishment more on the future.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/27/2014
    Although things are available vegan, they remove the defining elements that make a dish tasty (such as the Parmesan on truffle fries) these elements should be replaced or substituted with something. In addition there should be more items (and desserts) that are meant to be vegan.

    These Cornell Hotelies know how to run a restaurant. I had my wife and kids with me. My 4 year old ordered the Dashi Salmon and said "it is so good I can't stop eating it. " This is one of my favorite restaurants in town.

    I have been to Establishment tons of times, and never have I left disappointed. Students from the Hotel School at Cornell University run the restaraunt completely on their own and amaze me every time. The service is always great, wonderful food, and an enjoyable ambience! I would definitely recommend all to come check it out next time your in Ithaca or visiting Cornell's campus. P.s. Definitely try the Kale Caesar Salad!!

    I once again enjoyed my time at the Establishment, this time coming out to support a friend who was managing that night! The theme was To Cornell, From Japan With Love and I had the special, which was the Umami burger! I really enjoyed the taste and the meal was very done very well! The service and ambience were superb as well! :) I highly recommend the Establishment to any Cornell students or anyone who happens to be in Ithaca!

    Dined on 3/3/2014
    I came here because my friend was running it, but I was very underwhelmed by the service. It took us 3 hours to order, eat, settle our checks and leave. One of the people didn't get one of her dishes even, and she received the completely wrong check at the end as well. Our other group of friends just as big as us ate and left in 1 hour and 15 mins...waiters almost never came by. The waiters also spilled water on my friends place TWICE. Please make the service better, the servers almost never came by, I ordered a wine and got it only after a while. The food was great though, though a little overpriced for portion sizes.

The food is absolutely delicious - no complains from anyone in my party of nine. All of us were thoroughly impressed. The service is also excellent.

    Loved it! It gave us a taste of Barcelona at Cornell, while still allowing us to have the option of things that were familiar to us. The entree was delicious and the best part was that it allowed you to taste three different things on the same plate.

    Establishment is run by students at the Cornell Hotel School and is a welcome addition to the Ithaca dining scene. The nightly menu has a lot of variety and a lot of options for diners of all persuasions--from tofu lettuce wraps to steak frites. In addition, there are frequently special nightly menus, often themed, that allow for creativity from the kitchen. The quality of the food is consistently excellent. The service is good and attentive. It's the perfect place for a fancier meal if you are a member of the Corenll community or are up on campus for an event.

    We went there for a special night when hotel school students were presenting their work for a term project. We ordered from both the regular and the special menus. The items on the students' special menu were surprisingly impressive. They were very creative and tasty!! They are actually better than some of the dishes we tried on the regular menu.
