"I've made it a habit to take guests to Banfi. It remains a favorite choice, or even the only one on the Cornell campus given the other choices--largely extremely noisy and crowded student dining rooms and cafeteria- like places. My concern is that it's become quite pricey. I understand the need for extracting money from clients to maintain quality, but it is a restaurant attached to a hotel school and it is my understanding that students are expected to participate in many/several of its operational facets.
For example, I just paid almost $100 for a three-person lunch, and we all chose to do the buffet, which is usually a relatively budget friendly option in other places. True, the two adults had a glass of wine each, but still...
Nevertheless, I still rate it highly as it remains the only place on campus to and in which one can take guests for a variety of purposes, especially if one wants a leisure and relatively quiet meal (which can depend on how crowded it is)."

"Always great to have breakfast/brunch at Taverna Banfi when back on Cornell's campus. Great menu options - this time I went with the Banfi's Benedict, and nice twist on a standard favorite of mine. Love the pesto hollandaise. The breakfast/brunch buffet is another go-to that you can't miss with."

"We had a five course meal, arranged for in advance, that catered to my sensitivities and was probably the best meal we have ever had. Add in the personal attention and it was a marvelous celebration! My thanks to everyone at Banfi's, with special kudos to Chef Thomas, chef Eric, and waiter Matthew!"

"I go to Banfis maybe 3 or 4 times a year. Normally I am totally satisfied, but the last visit I was not satisfied. I had the avocado sandwich and a Cezar salad. The avocado was dark grey indicating a lack of freshness. And the Cezar salad greens were limp. Overall not too happy with the quilt of the food. Everything else, however, was great - nice service and ambiance etc.."

"Excellent food; very quiet, particularly at dinner; suggest avoid during big weekends on Campus with alums or Trustees or Councl. Most cool to take college age and younger students....it will be best meal they have had in a good while.
Enjoy!
