Best meal in Ithaca, hands down!!!
We had a delicious dinner and would definitely come back again. The wine pairing was prefect. The service was excellent. The menu was very interesting. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Great place to cement new friendships! - Wayne Gretzky
The food was delicious, the service was top shelf and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. A perfect night of dining.
I was absolutely thrilled about the service that Tim and Nick provided, amazed by the quality of the food, and astonished by the ambience of the evening.
Outstanding food and service. Our menu was creative and the food was absolutely delicious! I love to dine at Establishment when I visit Cornell U. It's the most special place on campus, run by students at SHA. You can really feel the personalized treatment, and the genuine care that has gone into each and every meal!
The specials were to die for! It was like euphoria in my mouth. I can only imagine what this cooking team would have been capable of if given more resources - truly a bright sign of our nation’s culinary future.
The entire experience was memorable. The atmosphere of the room was quiet and magical, someplace you would not go wrong to bring a date or a very close friend to. The servers are friendly, the host is smiling, and all in all there was a sense of respectful professionalism in the air.
Also the food was delicious. Would definitely go again.
Great for its service and the tapas. the flavor mixed very well. it is totally the casual form and is approciate for formal dinner. But i think it could be better If the serve time between the entree and dishes.
We had a great meal and truly enjoyed our first dining experience at Establishment. Eliza was a wonderful server and Ridge took excellent care of us, even if we are family!
Restaurant at the Statler run by students in the hotel program. Food is very good, and really fun to watch the students run the front and back of the house.
We had a wonderful family get together! The only thing that would have made it better would to have had one large table for our group (8 people) to be together. We were seated next to each other so that worked ok but conversation would have been easier if we were all at one table.
The food and service was all delightful and watching the people in the kitchen was a lot of fun! Thank you for your hard work. We will go again!!
The service and food were both pretty good. It is worth the value.
I found the food to be delicious and the service the best I’ve had at a comparably fancy restaurant! And the price is very reasonable for how amazingly more haute this place is than anywhere I normally would find food.
I wish they offered more vegetarian options, but they were able to make some dishes without the meat for my group.
This restaurant is run as part of a class in the Cornell Hotel School. It is always nice to see what the students can do. They plan the menus, cook the food and serve. And it is always a nice experience. The food is generally very good. It is a nice alternative to other restaurants especially if on is on the Cornell campus. I always enjoy talking with the students. It is only open in the evenings Monday to Thursday.
Amazing meal. Hannah was truly amazing. All the food was spectacular.
I really enjoyed watching Ian Chu in the kitchen through the window! He was lookin like a SNACK the whole time
Take advantage of the special opportunity to secure a reservation at Establishment - you will be impressed and spoiled by the professionalism and service that the students are delivering in every aspect of your visit. The food was absolutely delicious, you will find creative specials and definitely something for everyone!
Wonderful value as it is run by students at the hotel school and even though we would have loved to tip them they are not allowed to take tips. Great food and fun to engage with the students.
The chicken had gone bad and was still pink on the inside. However, the meal was so big that I filled up with just the accompanying salad. The wait staff was super friendly.
Food was good but slow. The wait staff was amicable and put up with some sub-ideal customers. All in all, I enjoyed the experience and would come again if it was a friend's night to work there.
The dish that I ordered (salmon noodles? or something along the lines) was too salty and wasn't seasoned evenly.
The hosts and staff were very courteous and welcoming. We were treated to an extraordinary dining experience that reminded us of our time in Portugal. Everything was cooked to perfection and exceeded our every expectation. The chorizo and scallop as well as the cod were personal favorites of ours.
As always I enjoyed my meal (food and service A+). I went with my two boys and they really enjoyed it too. The milkshake for dessert was the kicker for them! Great job!
The food selection was excellent, and the daily specials were delicious!
The service was perfect; it could not be improved upon.
Keep up the great work! I like that my fellow students are the ones helping to put in so much work and see what they are passionate about come to fruition
Mark, Sean, and Victoria put on an amazing night!!
sparkling soiree was best establishment yet hands down! So yummy and fun!
We had an amazing diner. The ambiance, service, and food were outstanding. A restaurant in the heart of Cornell's Hotel School, it is a not to be missed experince. Students select and prepare differnt specials each night. We were so surprised how elegant and upscale our evening was. A truely memorable evening.
Great ambience. Great service. I loved seeing all the Cornell students. I was worried about ordering a Vietnamese dish in a non-Vietnamese restaurant, but it was terrific! The service couldn't have been better, and the churro dessert was a winner!
Good time, came with friends, had the specials, they were fantastic. Made reservation for girlfriend, she cam with 5 instead of 4 people, and they were well accomodated.
Amazing food and service . Innovative menu with a lot of options.
Great experience. Glad I came!
Started with two appetizers. Brussels sprouts were delicious. The octopus had great flavor but was excessively chewy, which was very unpleasant. I would not order again. Both were hefty portions. Main was a curry dish. It could have been served with rice? Unless it was a soup. Nice, simple flavor. The shrimp were cooked well. Dessert was a Mexican chocolate torte with a meringue on top. I'm not sure the texture of the meringue complemented the torte, but the flavor was a nice contrast. Flavor of the torte was good. Rich chocolate. Could have been a little softer and could have used a little more of the raspberry sauce, but overall good job.
Students did a terrific job with the theme, menu, and accompanying music. I highly recommend Establishment!
It was a great experience! I really enjoyed the specialty drink both in taste and presentation.
Thoroughly enjoyed establishment and the Centro menu. The food was impressive and the students were so professional. The service was equally terrific. If you are on campus at Cornell you don't want to miss the opportunity to dine here.
The student´s perfomance was outstanding, great service, food quality and ambiance. Ideal for a friends´ get together
Amazing experience! Love their special menu of the night, especially their lobster roll. All the staffs were super welcoming too!
