The food was very good (especially the mashed potatoes) and the waitress was extremely helpful. Cozy atmosphere
Food is always really nicely presented and prepared. Our server was very pleasant and perfectly attentive - not hovering but not absent. It was fairly busy and the acoustics make it a little hard to hear but still worth a stop.
My boyfriend and I always come to Banfi to have lunch for special occasions, like our anniversary and our birthdays. It is a nice lunch option on campus when you are looking for a more upscale dining experience. We enjoy having the lunch buffet. Although, the choices for the buffet can be hit or miss on any particular day of the week. For example, this year for my birthday we came for lunch and the buffet was heavy on root vegetables and pork dishes, which is not our cup of tea. However, we came back the next week for Valentine's day and the buffet had a delicious braised beef dish with parsnip/potato puree that was heavenly. If I had one recommendation for the buffet is that there should be more variety of the style of dishes served on any given day. For example, not to have three trays of different style root vegetables all at the same time and to perhaps serve a fish dish other than salmon all the time. We would also like to see more things made with apples on the dessert buffet.
I had an incredible experience! Can’t wait to go back next week for Valentine’s Day weekend
Great dining experience!
Exceptional views of Cornell and Cayuga Lake. Impeccable service from a staff of long-term professionals.
Understanding this is a part of a university program- I’ll say it was okay, but; it was a date- it was a relatively empty dining room and we were seated right next to another couple who completed their meal and then another incoming couple were seated in the same vacant spot. We assumed this was done with the intention of making it easier on the sole server, who “tried” but was more robotic than he was engaging.
The menu was broad but the food itself was bland
Food was delicious.
Always enjoy dining here. Food this time was a bit over salted therefore the 4 instead of 5. We should have said something to server. I know they would have fixed it.
The food was great as was expected. Sue was our server and did a great job! She was pleasant, energetic and informational. The food was as tasty and exciting as we had expected. Really a level above most other places. We're looking forward to our next dinner date here!
We were especially pleased that the chef offered us a dish which was not ordinarily on the buffet. Everything was delicious and the dessert options dazziling!
The food is always well prepared. The staff is attentive and well-informed. It's always a pleasure to go there. I live 140 miles away in both directions, so it's quite an investment to come there.
There is only one thing to say about TB....it's always good, if not great! Only caution is to make reservations, b/c it's so popular. If you enjoy veggies, there's always a great assortment.
We had a most delightful time and the food was even more delicious than ever!
Thank you for a wonderful experience - we'll be back soon:)
