    The staff was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter was upfront about the small plates. Everything we ate was excellent, and I'd recommend the white chocolate panna cotta for dessert.

    I was aware of the dining style of your restaurant, however the portions were smaller then I thought they would be. An example was the chocolate cake, 1 1/4x1 1/4 inches barely a mouthful for $13.00.

    My daughter and I had a fabulous dinner on Saturday evening. Patrick, our server, was friendly, informative and attentive. He was fabulous! The food was superb! Every plate is appetizer size (may be doubled if you'd like), so we ordered a variety off the menu. Everything was so very fresh and beautifully presented. Highly recommend Tailor and the Cook. We will definitely be back!

    We had a lovely dinner at Taylor and Cook. Patrick was wonderful very attentive and had a good knowledge of the menu when answering all our questions. I love the ambience of this restaurant. Great feel and a welcoming, casual atmosphere. The maître d’ met us as soon as we walked in the door. He was very friendly. We were shown to our table and Patrick arrived and introduced himself a few minutes later. The service was excellent but we did not feel rushed and we were able to relax and enjoy our meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    I have been a fan of the Tailor and the Cook since it opened but haven't been back in a while. It was wonderful to see that in spite of a change in management, the food, service, and ambience are still top notch. This place is the perfect combination of fine dining and locavore dining. It showcases the best seasonal produce of the region. Their wine list is just as carefully curated as the food and decor. The staff are kind, efficient, and knowledgeable. We are blessed to have this (and several other) excellent restaurants in the Utica area and I hope they get the recognition from outside the region that they deserve.

    Everything about our meal was phenomenal—the food, the service, the ambiance. We ordered almost half the menu and everything was incredible. They serve inspired food that still feels accessible, and their combination of flavors can make me enjoy foods I normally don’t eat. This is easily our favorite restaurant and has to be one of the best restaurants in CNY.
