We had a wonderful dinner tonight in Ithaca - and noticed that the Restaurant has never been reviewed before -- so wanted to write up a quick review - Watercress Restaurant. The food was delicious. We started with their specialty - Watercress Salad- which was delicious fresh greens, toasted almonds, and smoked blue cheese, with a fig balsamic dressing. It was absolutely wonderful - very smoky, but sweet as well.
For our entrees, one of us had the vegetarian spanish tortilla which was delicious and well made -- numerous fresh veggies, eggs, cooked perfectly. The other had the organic salmon - which was perfectly cooked, and well flavored, with yummy asparagus and grains. We finished off the delicious meal with a warm, chocolate cake and homemade whipped cream.
Really, we didn't have a single complaint with our food - and the service was wonderful. I am amazed that we'd never heard of this place before, and so wanted to recommend it. We learned about it just today from a woman at a wineshop in Aurora, NY (fingerlakes region) - and decided to give it a try. We're so glad we did!
