You will get no better food in Mohawk Valley than Taylor & The Cook. There farm to table selection is outstanding and service is even better.
25th wedding anniversary - food and wine were fantastic. Pace was perfect - adequate time between courses, never felt like we were waiting or rushed. Talked to the floor manager ahead of time and asked him to present a special present at desert and things went off without a hitch.
We love this place. We’ve been before and will go again. In my humble opinion it’s the best restaurant in the area. The staff’s attention to detail, their care for patrons and the quality of the food separates the Tailor and the Cook from all the rest.
Just had one of the best meals ever on Saturday night. Loved the cheese plate appetizer also. The service from Meredith our server and Jared the dining room manager were spot on. Thanks for making our night a spectacular and memorable experience Tailor & The Cook!
Unique menu; great presentation; great food. Good service
Awsome! Local sourced. All servers and chefs very outgoing and attentive.
We HIGHLY recommend this venue. Every detail was attended to. All staff are friendly and so knowledgeable. Each person truly seemed to want to be there & enjoy their role & worked so well together. The food, from appetizers to dessert was second to none. Not only did we know where our food came from but how it was prepared and other interesting details. The atmosphere is relaxing & comfortable & so welcoming. It was worth the over than an hour drive and we look forward to returning
I've been here before, and every time is a different adventure in food. Love that its local and know the owners and they are doing phenomenal with what they do best--FOOD. Love the different menu every time! Never get bored with trying different things!!!
Great place and good food. Enjoyed it very much! Would come back again.
We had a wonderful time in celebration of my wife's 31st birthday! It is a pricey menu but totally worth it because of the atmosphere, service, and locally sourced food. A great place to go for a romantic night. Our reservation was at 5PM and we showed up a few minutes early not realizing the door was locked seemingly until 5PM sharp so we had to walk around a bit before going in which wasn't a big deal but we felt a little silly trying to open the door when it was still locked. (We like to be sure we are always on time, hence arriving a bit early.)
The Food & team there are second to none. Blair & Devin took great care of my wife and I. Blair has taken care of us once before and he is exceptional!!! Thanks so much for a great experience!
A phenomenal dining experience. Great food that is masterfully prepared.
Great place & perfect ambiance for our Anniversary! Food was very good.
We had a wonderful meal with excellent service
Food is incredible
Another great evening at TaIlor & the Cook!
The chefs and the entire staff knocked it out of the park again.
FYI: Grt the shishito peppers while you can!!!
We would return when in the area.
Been here many times and have never had a less than exceptional experience from start to finish!
I have been here three times already and have never been disappointed.
Absolutely Incredible! I was in town for the weekend and really couldn’t say enough great things about this restaurant. The staff was lovely, the food was thoughtfully put on the menu and you can’t go wrong with it being locally sourced. Plus with that being said, it was delicious!! We took our time dining and never felt rushed. I wish I lived closer because this would be a spot I would go to often. Cheers!
Just amazing. Incredible food - NYC 5-star quality food! It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for. And this was a top-notch experience.
A thoroughly enjoyable restaurant with a superb seasonal menu and wonderful service. Outstanding!
We had friends fly in from California and wanted to have them experience a great meal with a fantastic vibe. Some of our friends highly recommended this place, and we were definitely not disappointed. From the attentive, friendly staff; the wine list and the best part, the delicious food. Littleneck clams with plum sauce, outstanding, the fresh salad, the perfectly cooked scallops and that was just mine. Each meal was both eclectic and delicious. My husband is still raving about the food, and we can't wait to go back!
Always top notch! The new menu items were fantastic. The Scotch Egg starter was phenomenal, and the Salmon feature was out of this world. Kudos T&C
Surprising find in downtown Utica. Tasting menu, additional nightly specials, local sourcing and attentive service make this a hidden gem. Food concept and ambiance would fit comfortably in the Village (NYC). Scallop appetizer over charred corn was nice hint for what was to come. Sliced leg of lamb prepared perfectly. Staff and chef handled food allergies without drama. Easy conversation. If in town overnight and want to high end dining experience, don’t miss it. Small capacity so make a reservation!
This is our favorite restaurant and has been for years. We are never disappointed and plan every special occasion dinner at Tailor and the Cook!
We showed up with 2 extras to an already large party of 6. Host was gracious, accommodating and went out of his way to make it work. Good was
Wonderful (2nd visit for us) and arrive was top notch.
Great food, great service, what more could we ask! Enjoyable evening all the way around! We'll be back!!
The food and service here is way beyond any other restaurant in our area. And the cocktails are exceptional.
Disappointed that my wife’s halibut was under cooked. Noisy with patrons in very close proximity to one another. A little over priced and not very impressed with our appetizer and meals
OMG!! Awesome experience. First class service from arrival through finish. Great food and wine. Loved it.
We were in town for one night and took a shot based on the description. It was better than advertised!!!
Best fine dining restaurant in Utica and the surrounding area.
Overall we had a fine experience here. My dad's fish was a little cold but he didn't speak up until later. The only thing that folks agreed was the low point was the salad which just wasn't that interesting. My Filet was great. Pricey but within range of restaurants of this kind. Nice to have a new place in Utica for when I visit my parents in ilion.
Never have complaints here! Always a great experience and the food is top notch!!!
My husband and I went to the Tailor and Cook in August and then took my brother in law and his wife for a birthday dinner. We all enjoyed it...my sister-in-law thought it was the best restaurant she had e er been to. Great food and service.
Great staff, polite, and professional! Very knowledgeable about the menu.
Had a very
Nice meal service was very good but got seated in a very small table kind of next to the bar and was not happy with that
Had a great dinner here Monday night. The food was excellent as was the service. Probably the BEST restaurant in town. We would definitely return here the next time we're in Utica.
