Coltivare - Ithaca
Walked into a modern nice open space....the right hand side of the restaurant where the bar is situated seemed to have more ambiance and we got seated on the left hand side (an empty room with a bunch of tables) which was fine with us during these crazy times. The waiter was nice and pleasant but seemed rush (sloshing water as he was pouring into our glasses). Food came out at a good pace, omelette was decent (although I wish the bacon was a bit crispier) but the french toast was surprisingly very good. The prices were decent and I liked the overall feel of the restaurant so we would go there again.
Lovely atmosphere, great service, very good food.
Autumn harvest mac and cheese was amazing!
You must try the Autumn Harvest salad with the pistachio goddess dressing - so incredibly yummy! For our entrees we got the Almond Crusted Cod and the Pesto Cream Orrichete pasta. Both very good, but the salad was outstanding! Service was excellent! The atmosphere is very nice as well - quiet, modern, clean. Tables are very far apart, so no worries!
Server was friendly but late in coming to our table with no apology. Food was horrible and apparently if you want your salmon "cooked" you need to be specific. Chef likes to serve it as if it's sushi. We sent ours back and once it came back to table everyone else was done eating. Server should have at least sent over a drink or a dessert but instead charges my husband for a refill on soda.
We will never go again.
Good food and atmosphere. Will go There to eat again.
Food was excellent and the service matched. Very special anniversary dinner made better by the staff who put us at ease with one of our first in-door dining experiences.
Diverse choices for dinner! Had a delicious meal that was also accommodating to my health concerns (lactose intolerance).
Great service and food!
Attentive service, well made cocktails, and great distance between tables made this experience feel very fun and safe. The brunch menu was great value.
Great food and great service. Had dinner there Saturday night. Great Pecan Encrusted Cod. Can't wait to go back when we visit our son again.
The food was absolutely amazing. I wasn’t even that hungry when I got there and I kept ordering because I wanted to try everything.
The service was excellent. The food was good but not outstanding. Dessert was outstanding.
The menu is obviously prepared by a skilled chef. Very loud and uncomfortable chairs. Lots of covid space inside though so that is nice.
My husband and I had the steak special and we both agree it was the best steak of all time. Our friends ordered a pasta dish which looked great and the burger came with fresh cut fries all were very delicious. We are looking forward to going back one day when we are in the area again. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The inside of this spot is beautiful! We had the Burrata which was delicious. I really liked how everything was fall themed or seasonal. The fettucini and salmon were super tasty and the fall creme brulee was to die for. Would come back here!
Our appetizers and drinks were okay, but the main course and dessert were delicious!!! Our server was sweet and attentive- truly wonderful and even though it wasn’t on the menu, remembered to tell me about their Apple Cider Sorbet due my lactose allergy. And HOLY MOLY- taste bud explosion! The steak was cooked perfectly and the butter that came with it was so good! Really enjoyed this place!
Our third time there. Every time food is outstanding. Highly recommend.
It is gorgeous inside. Our waitress was not particularly enthusiastic. She was quite monotone which was a little odd.
Fantastic food and ambience but be prepared to pay for it. A great spot for a nice dinner out though for sure.
I have to say it took me a while to find my favorite dine-in restaurant in Ithaca, but I’m glad I finally find it! It’s Coltivare. We’ve been here 3-4 times now, and I have to say their food is so good! And the inside of their restaurant is beautiful! Though I’m still waiting to try dining in one of their green house like rooms.
They definitely have the best free bread ever with the best olive oil spice dip. They really mastered the word “fresh” in my opinion. No matter it’s a cooked dish or salad like dish, all of them are fresh, clean and delicious. We always feel satisfied but also not feeling like we ate things so greasy and dense that we don’t want to eat anything anymore. I love their dessert too! First time I ordered this coffee creamer brûlée, second time we got this strawberry Shrub icecream on top of this pistachio tart thing, and last time we went we got this brown sugar cranberry clafouti with ginger icecream on top. Honestly, I can’t find anywhere else in Ithaca has such great seasonal menus.
And their alcohol is great! They had this nyc mules thing and it was on of the best cocktail I’ve ever had! But they took it away from the menu🥺 I hope they can bring it back soon. Anyways I love this restaurant.
Food choices were outstanding. Had fall menu full of the season with veggies, etc. Would go back many times.
We had a late dinner at Coltivare. The restaurant was fairly quiet and has great ambiance, good variety on the menu, and a diverse wine and beer list, mostly local. We really enjoyed our meal. It's a beautiful place with lots of separate spaces that give it a cozy feel. Definitely recommend.
Great food!! Chef talented with unique twist on dishes. Reasonably priced wine. Great deaerts
The squash and ginger soup was AMAZING. Our server Chris was so kind and helpful. He asked the head chef for the recipe for the soup for me and the chef was busy so he gave me his card to email him. The food was delicious with beautiful presentation (also, best buffalo cauliflower I’ve ever had!), the place was clean and pretty, I loved everything about our experience here.
An absolutely fantastic place. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. I will definitely visit again soon.
Great dinner for the entire family! Pastalaya was spicy and full of meat. Desserts were delicious! Our server couldn't have been more attentive (without being intrusive!). This is our third visit and each one has been great. We highly recommend Coltivare!
Coltivare is the best restaurant in Ithaca! Great atmosphere and fantastic food!
Service and ambiance was great. I ordered the Mac n cheese and it was bland. Might have to go back to try something else though.
Our server was lovely and so was the ambience and brunch! The Benedict was fantastic and my pancake was caramelized to perfection. And the strawberry rhubarb hard cider was the topper to a great experience
We ate outside and our food and server were terrific.
Delicious food with wonderful flavoring. We had a party of 8 and service was exceptional.
Great place to eat for a birthday or anniversary dinner!
Must visit restaurant in Ithaca...................
The place is so spacious, there were no crowding worries. The food was spectacular, the martinis icy and full of olives, and our server was a delight. Definitely recommend.
Setting was beautiful, ambiance was great and the service was excellent. The presentation of the food was also wonderful but I wasn't blown away by how it tasted. Everything was good but I can't say it was outstanding.
Beautiful and very clean restaurant. Our server was terrific and the food was seasonal and fresh!!! Great experience!!!
GreAt place to hang loose like a mongoose
We love George
Amazing wait staff, quality food. 10/10 recommend
We thought the food was well thought out and well executed. We had delicious salads with very fresh greens and nuts.
The chicken was moist and well seasoned. Could have lived without the bacon in the lentils. Mashed potatoes , very buttery and tasty. My husband’s cod also delicious and nicely seasoned. Good focaccia too. Must also compliment the choice of mellowed music throughout our dinner.
