We'll be back!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA+ for student run restaurant!This student run restaurant on the Cornell campus has fantastic food and friendly service. We went to the hops inspired dinner and thoroughly enjoyed both the fish tacos and the beer-braised short ribs, along with the beer pairing chosen for each. We also ordered lettuce wraps from the regular menu. We had them with chicken (there was also a tofu option) and the fillings were perfectly seasoned. I can't wait to go back to establishment for a regular meal or one of the the other themed meals!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYohanna was an excellent hostest,Yohanna was an excellent hostest, and Bukky was a magnificent and attentive server. I give this restaurant my highest regards and recommendation!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove and Beyond ServiceAfter discovering the hidden entrance of establishment, I was enthused to see many of my classmates and friends inside. I talked to several individuals about the best that establishment has to offer, and they always recommended the truffled fries. Even though it was an appetizer to share, I basically ate it by myself. The managers constantly visited our table, inquiring about our meal and recommending dishes to compliment our meal. The backwaiters, particularly Ashley, were quite attentive as they refilled my friend's glass four times, and each time was when the glass was half full.
I hope that Yohana recommends another day so that I may enjoy the excellent attention that the staff gives.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and experience!There was great food, service, and atmosphere! I truly enjoyed my time at the Establishment and cannot wait to go there again :)3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMStudent-run restaurant atStudent-run restaurant at Cornell Hotel School. A one of a kind experience. Seriously awesome.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Most Memorable EveningMy son and I attended the "American" cuisine night, Thursday, March 14th, and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The entire staff was welcoming, enthusiastic, always smiling, and genuinely cared about our comfort. It was the ideal menu for such a frigid night and each course was served at the right time, at the perfect temperature, and so very delicious. I loved that the Spinach/Artichoke dip with toasted pita chips was a single-serve appetizer - unique and just the right size! The Chicken Pot Pie was topped with an unbelievably light and flaky puff pastry that completed the dish beautifully. The Chocolate Bread Pudding was absolutely the best I have ever eaten and was so elegantly plated. JUST A GREAT MEAL!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBased on all three of my selectedBased on all three of my selected dishes as well as my husband's, quality of the food and taste of all three courses ordered, as well as the wine offerings, I would return and recommend Establishment to my friends.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEstablishment is a studentEstablishment is a student project with a different manager every night. So one cannot expect consistency. That said, these are students who are highly energetic, motivated, and accomplished in their areas. Yes, there have been a few flaws and I think the basic menu could use a tweak. But I would not hesitate to go there again - and again. The food is well-prepared and well-presented, some of it creative. The prices are reasonable, and the service is quite good.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStudents did a great job,Students did a great job, and provided excellent service. They were equal to or better than any professional restaurant.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
