A fantastic little restaurant. The small kitchen puts out some amazing food. The poached eggs were perfect. The espresso was wonderful and had some nice dark chocolate flavors. The Belgian hot chocolate was the best I have had. Extremely dog friendly.
Had an amazing time here! Enjoyed the eggs Edinburgh for myself and shared the sweet toast éclair with friends. Food tastes like it it made with high quality ingredients. Sat outside and enjoyed the lovely weather with my dog. Highly recommend coming here and making reservations in advance. Owner is incredibly kind and welcoming, servers are great too.
Within a matter of minutes, Allechant became our favorite restaurant in Ithaca. We were greeted by the owner, Reeve, who went out of his way to find us a table despite our lack of reservation. This was followed by a 20-minute get-to-know-you "interview" which was really delightful. The menu, comprised of about 10 gourmet dishes were so enticing, we could not decide what to order. I got the Eggs Edinborough (which is a salmon variation on Eggs Benedict), my daughter got the Lemon Souffle Pancakes. Both "Food Channel" quality dishes: unique, fresh, seasoned to perfection, beautifully plated, and delicious! The waitstaff was also remarkably friendly and helpful. We look forward to becoming regular customers, which will give us the opportunity to enjoy the other menu items.
We were excited to have our brunch here because we heard the food is good. We made a reservation ahead of time but the server was being arrogant and asked us “have we worked in a restaurant before?”. He didn’t apologized for the delay and we told him that we understand because we lived in the city before. He just scorned and said “I don’t think you do.” I don’t understand why a server could be so disrespectful for the customer and being judgmental because I do live in the city. We also seated in the table for a long time and no one came to ask us what we want. The WORST restaurant in Ithaca lol.
I rarely write reviews, but this evening I feel compelled to. We stumbled upon this place by pure chance after meeting a friend for a hike. We are so very glad we did! Incredible flavors and beautiful presentations. Friendly, attentive service and fun trivia about the food and local history. I live a solid hour away and I will be back very soon! Keep up the fantastic work!
