This was just an outstanding experience! The ambiance, the service, the quality and presentation of the food! We are so thankful for our time at the restaurant, and cannot wait to go back!
Ordered filet, cooked just right and delicious. A little pricey, would go only on special occasions. We find the tables are just a bit too close together.
Tim and his staff make it a very enjoyable visit for a fine dinner
Outstanding service. The food was on par to any NYC high end restaurant. Absolutely delicious. It’s a little tight but that’s okay. It’s part of the atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant. I’ve been here five times and every time it gets better.
Our server Blaire was outstanding in all ways. The food delicious. The restaurant is a true gem for the Utica area.
such a wide variety of foods and drinks. we recommend it.
Delicious food great service. Will be going back again
Everything was the best! Food, service, ambiance - outstanding! It is our favorite place!
This is a superior restaurant in many ways. The service, the ambiance and the food were all well above average! There are quality ingredients prepared in unique ways. Be sure to order the cheese board! You will get a comprehensive and interesting explanation from one of many attentive servers. We only come to Utica every few months, but whenever we come, The Tailor and The Cook will be our dinner spot!
We went to celebrate our anniversary and Tailor and the Cook did not disappoint. The food was delicious, as always. The cheese board was amazing and our server, Devon, was even better!
Will happily recommend this place to anyone/everyone.
Above and beyond.

The lamb was very chewy and had little flavor. The salad, bread and the two little radish servings were very good. We were served two little brownie bites because it was my birthday. That was a nice touch. It seemed quieter, which was appreciated. Decorating was really nice. Wait staff were excellent. It's just that lamb......
Best meal I’ve been a part of in many moons. Service was friendly, honest, and not pushy. Food was delicious and portions we just right. We were stuffed and yet happy. The only ONLY issue was when I went to the bathroom- please please please re-position the mirror on the back of the door.
Left by purchasing a gift card for my mother in law! Thank you for an excellent experience and meal!
The best place dining experience in the Mohawk Valley!
Excellent restaurant. Quality food and service.
We come to the Utica area a couple times a year for business and we ALWAYS make it a point to bring a group to The Tailor and the Cook. Great service and great food!
Dependably excellent . Everything I could ask for.
always a special evening out when we dine at TAILOR an THE COOK.💕
Great food and service
Excellent as always
It was an incredible meal and dining experience!! The staff was amazing.
T&C never ceases to amaze me. Chef Tim and crew are true artisans and the entire staff are wonderful and accommodating. Never miss it when I’m in town.
My wife and I always enjoy a delightful delicious meal at Taylor and the Cook.
Excellent food, excellent environment. My favorite place in Utica.
The Tailor and The Cook is a shockingly excellent eatery that would hold its own in midtown Manhattan or Beverly Hills, but is right in Utica, NY. Its locally-sourced foods are fresh, the service is supreme, and the food is creative and indulgent in flavor and plating. Freshly baked breads with flavorful butter through high-quality meats and fish and wonderful desserts. I have tasted delicious vegetables there that I didn't know existed. It is worth the cost. We forgot to update our 4-person reservation to 2, and still, the service was 5 star, more than considerate and attentive. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome without a hint of annoyance, which would be understandable as we arrived at the height of their dinner seating. Total professionals. Their people are genuinely tops at customer service and the food is nothing short of divine. I miss it already. GO. DON'T MISS IT!
Great local food creatively presented in a fun environment.
Our waiter, Devon, was amazing at not only the wealth of knowledge of the menu but also his enthusiasm and passion for being there.
It was a great night. Amazing food. Had a wonderful time there and cant wait to go back.
Great meal as usual with highlights of fresh mushroom pate and mushroom toast. Great food and even better service.
This was our sixth visit and as usual everything was great. We live in Europe but always make a point of visiting "The Taylor & the Cook" whenever we are in the States.
Very enjoyable evening....atmosphere was comfortable for a business meeting/discussion. Server was very accommodating of my special requests. Food was delicious and beautifully presented.
Incredibly delicious food, as always. Loved the duck and the filet mignon!
This was my third visit and they’ve all been very good. The service is always outstanding, the ambience is fun, and the drinks are excellent. All of these get solid A’s. The food, however, doesn’t quite measure up to the rest of the experience. It’s very good, but I’ve yet to have an OMG-this-is-to-die-for kind of meal. For the money ($39 for my most recent entree) I expect the food to be exceptional too.
I’ll be back next time I’m in town, looking for that next level of wonderful.
Wonderful date night. The service was very good. We enjoyed the butcher’s board appetizer very much.
We were a bit late for our reservation and they made us feel like we inconvenienced them and rushed. Pub atmosphere with a fine dinning menu.$$
I never give 5 stars. This was a great dining experience. Attentive, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. Thoughtful, creative menu featuring local ingredients, expertly prepared, beautifully presented. Impressive wine list of affordable quality wines, many local. Worth a special trip.
Amazing food always ! Amazing service ! Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
We happened upon this gem of a restaurant on our way driving thru Utica from Boston. I've had some pretty spectacular meals in Boston, but none lately that match what we ate at the Tailor and the Cook. It was an unforgettable meal. The pork entree was the best. Each of the little sides that came with it were unique and delicious. Also enjoyed the dandelion greens and beet risotto. And the bread was equally fantastic. Just a fantastic meal all the way around.
One of the few restaurants in the area that honestly can use the label "farm to table.'' A true commitment to local sourcing of food and wine. Our meal was excellent from start to finish and so was the service.
The service was very attentive, I only had one issue in that the Scallops were a little on the salty side. My husand also commented to me that he thought the Scallops were a little salty. Overall it was a great experience.
