great place.... never disappoints Always new things on the menu
It was beyond excellent!!!!!!
We LOVED everything about The Tailor and the Cook.
Wine, food, and service worthy of telling the server hold the desert...ENCORE. Although we were completely satisfied and would not have been able to pull it off that is what high quality the entire night was at The Tailor and The Cook.
I'm grain free so I couldn't eat the bread, but my daughter thought it was so good, tears literally started going down her cheeks. And after eating the cheesecake, she says she isn't going to eat cheesecake from any other restaurant for the next year because she's spoiled now. Enough said?
The staff are very attentive and accommodating.
Expensive, but high quality items cost money. The chefs are clearly top notch. The food is the best I've had in the area.
I would have preferred a quieter atmosphere, but that's me.
This place deserves its great reputation. Superb, attentive service and beautiful food. Impressive attention to detail. It's on a level with the finest restaurants we've enjoyed in places like Boston and Montreal.
However the restaurant is too loud and the tables are packed too close together. We'd hoped for a romantic ambiance and it's just too noisy in there, plus who wants to hear the conversations at neighboring tables?
10/10 top meals I have ever had.
Stellar service, excellent cuisine, never disappoints!
Always a pleasure eating at the Tailor and the Cook. From appetizer to dessert the flavors were outstanding, the wait staff impeccable and the experience wonderful.
Love this place ! Pricey but worth it . Amazing service
The food was amazing as was the service and the ambiance the food choices and drink choices are outstanding. It is definitely 1 of the best restaurants I've eaten at and we have traveled all over the U.S.. It is very pricey but I do highly recommend it. My only disappointment was the deserts, they were terrible we had the cheesecake and the something..flan, unnotable, no flavor and very disappointing considering our appetizer and meal was phenomenal. Please fix the deserts.
The staff is very attentive. The menu is very unique and a breath of fresh air with so many chain restaurants dominating the landscape in today's "one size fits all" culture. Anytime I want to impress someone without going to NYC I will choose Taylor & The Cook
The best restaurant in the Utica area
always great service and a wonderful dining experience. Love the atmosphere. It's a must if you are visiting the area.
It was more than just an upscale dinner, it was an experience. All local ingredients formulated into a tasty seasonal menu. The small intimate restaurant makes for easy conversation and exceptional service. Great spot for a special occasion dinner.
Utica’s best restaurant. Likely the best in the region.
The servers were knowledgeable about the menu and were very attentive. The food was fresh and delicious. We ordered scallops and lamb meatballs for appetizers. The duck, fillet mignon, and fish were perfect. For dessert we ordered the lemon curd and flan, which was just right. If you are in the Utica area, Tailor and the Cook is a must!
Great food options and wonderful staff . Especially liked the vegetarian offerings
Love everything about this place!!!
Business trip into town. I live in SF and this was one of the best dinners I’ve had in a while. Had the lamb, great. Service was good, nice people. Do it.
What a find! We were driving from Watertown, NY to Albany, NY on a Monday evening and we were looking for a decent restaurant. Decent? This was spectacular!! I don't believe I have ever had filet mignon as tender as what they served - and the white truffle mashed potatoes where out of this world. Even the carrots (roasted?) were delicious. We started dinner with two cocktails, one made with Captain's Flask Whiskey and one made with Dry Gin, both from the Saint Lawrence Spirits on the River Distillery (at which we had had brunch the day before!). The cocktails were perfect. Then the chef sent out a "thank you for dining with us' hors d'oeuvre of a thinly sliced black radish with a tomato aioli and a roasted caper on it - sensational! The salad, which came with our meals, was a delightful light salad with raisins and - well - all sorts of fun stuff! My fiancé ordered the special - Blue Marlin from Hawaii - which neither of us had ever had before. It was light, flaky, cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious. For dessert we ordered the Jones Family Farm Cheesecake. Best cheesecake ever! If you are ever near Utica you have to go here. Hell - even if you aren't - it is definitely worth the trip! Bon Appetit!
All I can say is I make the 2 1/2 hour drive to eat at this restaurant. I could drive to NYC in less time but I drive to Utica because within my 54 years of living, this is the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. Everything is amazing, the drinks, the appetizers, the food, the specials, the deserts and the service is beyond any place I have ever been to. The waiters are trained better than I have ever seen in my life. They know the food, they know which farm the cheese came from, they know where the local honey came from and they rattle that information off quickly and precisely. I just wish they would open a place near me in the Hudson Valley.
Always a perfect meal. The cheese board never disappoints, and their special cocktails are creative and tasty. Two of us had the fillet, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The staff is terrific; helpful without hovering.
Excellent meal. Attentive service. Awesome NY State wines!
Fantastic experience ! From the bartenders making signature cocktails to the city-like cozy atmosphere ... the best part , the food is all local farm to table! A couple little surprise bites sent from the kitchen , and everyone on the staff is VERY polite.
Your tummy will be very happy .
Best restaurant between Syracuse and Beardslee Castle!!
Unbelievably good. Just fantastic. Never had a meal there that wasn’t absolutely delicious and well presented.
Really enjoyed food and the service. All the staff helped not just my server
Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent and presented beautifully; quite possibly the best meal we've ever had. Highly recommend The Tailor and The Cook!
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday and enjoyed everything we ordered. Service was excellent which is one of the reasons we count this as a favorite restaurant!
Amazing food! We opted for the chefs tasting menu tonight and it was absolutely perfect! Overall just delicious, each course had an Irish twist that was done to perfection. Our host was great upon entry and suggested tonight’s drink offerings. Our server Tim is a delight if you’re so lucky to have him. Just an amazing place in the Bagg’s Square district with incredible food, service and ambiance. I absolutely love this restaurant because all the details are managed for your dining enjoyment; this is our favorite place in the city, hands down.
A very good healthy ingredient restaurant in a relatively small town. I was very I,pressed with the menu and fresh ingredients. We want to come back.
Everything was great, from the food to the severice and ambiance. The only drawback is that the tables are seated too close together, that it made it difficult to have an intimate conversation.
Visiting from Los Angeles on a business tri, my colleague and I had as delightful a meal with wine pairing as anywhere in LA. A nice surprise.
Our first time here. Not only great food, but a great experience.
Amazing as per usual. The lamb/rye meatballs were absolutely wonderful.
I was diassapointed to see the huge pork chops had vanished (that’s what I went for) but between the pork I did get, the grits and meatballs you’d be nuts 🥜 not to have gone home very happy. After a HORRIBLE 15 straight hours of work, I was saved. 😇
Our server,Emily, was friendly and efficient. When I mentioned my food intolerances she quickly went to the chef who offered an alternative and delicious option . Everyone’s food was delicious. This is one of our favorite restaurants!
The farm-to-table menu choices provided something for everyone in our party of six, the food was without exception excellent, and service was informative and attentive, yet not overdone either. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxing, and the overall experience was a memorable evening for us all. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in all of central New York- so just go!
Fantastic atmosphere, great portions, friendly waitstaff and excellent menu.
A truly special restaurant and we are lucky to have it in Utica.
Very nice evening!! Drinks food and the service was fabulous!!
I have been here a number of times now and yes it is a little pricey but worth the money. Never have I had anything but a spectacular meal and the best service ever. The only thing as always I wish the servings were bigger because I would love to have it for lunch the next day too.
