Is this your business?

    The Rook is a little restaurant serving big flavors in the form of comfort food and craft cocktails. Our eatery was founded by Gentry Morris (chef/owner) and partners in 2016. In 2018 Manny Flores joined the team to manage the bar’s beverage program. To adapt to the recent pandemic, all our food and drink is carefully prepared for takeout, meant to be enjoyed picnic-style.

    Went on a trip to finger lakes and stop by here to eat something before crashing in the hotel. The food was amazing. The servers were really nice and ambient was incredible. If I ever go back to Ithaca will definitely visit this place again.

    I love this place. A limited seasonal menu that is well thought out. I had the fried chicken. It was to-die-for. My husband had the ribs. They were so good, cooked to competition perfection. Elote, get it, thank me later. Oh, and the grilled bacon-wrapped dates with goat cheese; need I say more?

    The food (re: schnitzel) was delicious and filling. Had the pleasure of being helped by Manny at the bar- he made great drinks, super knowledgeable/professional about his craft and made me feel super welcome! Thank you!

    I cannot recommend The Rook enough. Start to finish, one of the best meals I've ever had. The hushpuppies with the pimento cheese is better than some entrees I've had. Having spent a few years in NC, I can say that the south wishes it could create such a wonderful hushpuppy. The cheeseburger was able to do what it shouldn't have, given its lackluster name of "Cheeseburger." It was able to display a taste profile that no basic "Cheeseburger" should be capable of. Then there were the fries. I can honestly say I've never had a better french fry. This meal was A+. 10/10, 100/100, a truly perfect meal.
