I think they lost the "R" from their sign. It should say "Taylor and Crook". They should be ashamed of themselves. And why do they need the whole, entire sidewalk in front of their place for outdoor seating? Even on a rainy night with nobody sitting outside, they sidewalk is totally blocked. How do they get away by blocking the entire sidewalk and forcing people to walk in the street? Is this legal? They must have friends and family in city hall. They have one hell of a business model. Serve miniscule portions, charge a small fortune, and tell everyone its fashionable. Its a scam. Anyone who thinks a peice of cheese is worth 30 bucks needs therapy.

Righties??? HA, HA , Do you mean riggies? We are thin runner's, you sound like a moron and all wrIting in are entitled to opinion. You must be an owner and if so, yes, you are very cheap and we, like our friend's did not care for our meal's. Even the veggie portions were poor, sorry we like a good amount of veggies, We will take our 340.00 for 4 and go elsewhere for sure. The wine amounts were ridiculous,we left thinking OF THAT ALSO. OMG,yes, sorry. Suggestion- if you need to penny pinch make your own wine and breads! The cheese plate, a waste of money and some more bread offered would have been nice. Comments keep coming in so owner's may want to be a bit more generous. I hear there are 4. We are professionals and have not much good to say. Bartender also seemed very stingy, maybe he was an owner also. I hope not. I had an after dinner drink and the glass I have to say was only filled miniscule.My husband rolled his eyes at bartender and laughed A Little

Did you notice that anytime someone makes a valid point about any of the over hyped retarded hippie culture "businesses" they attack you?

The place is a hangout for anti veteran hippie drug addicts.

Reminds me I almost forgot #10

CNY has the highest rate of illicit AND prescribed drug use than any county in the upstate sector.

Just awful and crook's is a good word for place, won't be their long. Staff was pushy, talked to me like I was stupid about organic! My husband is a doctor. He also laughed on the way home about his 1/4 drinks! for a trillion dollars! Pricey is not always fashionable if you feel cheated.Saw an obgyn we knew also,they thought mediocre at best also and overpriced.

Fran Elias is a repulsive argumentative littlefish wanabe who has discriminated against veterans. Hence the "Traitor and the Crook" moniker.

I'm amazed this place has lasted as long as it has. I don't understand why "trendy" people seem to love places that are overpriced and serve tiny protions. I don't understand why it is considered "classy" to spend a week's paycheck at a place that serves slivers of food and a few drops of drinks. This is not classy or tendy, it is a joke. There are dozens of fine restaurants that serve you a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. Why bother with a place like this? If you go there for dinner, you might want to stop into the pizza place next door to get a slice or two afterwards.
a complete rip off, we hated it, it smelled inside and was hot, they acted like it was wonderful, people next to us did not like either, eventually they will run out of new people to rip off, trendy not so, worst than expensive, won't last another year.

To be quite honest, I had a much better meal, drinks and more fun at Delmonico's down the street. It was not awful, it was ok but overpriced for sure. Filet much better-bigger at Delmonico's, go see for yourself. I felt cheated also. NOT a hater but won't ever go again

What a disappointment the dinner's were.Org anic does not always go along with good. As for fee's- just crazy pricing,someones trying to get rich off dinner's quick.I agree,ascam. They should pay the customer to even try that awful cheese platter,that set the tone for us.Waitress spoke like wonderful dishes to be served, she knew we were not impressed. scale from 1-10, a pricey 5

Our overpriced drinks were served to us outside in very small glasses. We then went elsewhere for normal size drinks at half the price. Waiter serving drinks was not 21, not sure if that's ok? Expected these great infused drinks, not so and horribly expensive. That's our take. First and last time. Wine servings smallest I have ever seen and not expensive wine. Cheap brands for huge prices.

The food is great and a different menu for central NY. But they are over priced and insane with the bread and the used wine bottle filled with Utica tap water. I know running a place is hard but give the people some bread and a strong drink. you do not need the negative talk for such easy fixes.

Well....hm...i think i'm seeing a trend here. The prices described do sound a bit steep- especially if the liquor is measured up to the barest minimum. Sounds like a great place to try out solo.

The trend is the gluttonous, uneducated, unsophisticated, cheap, ignorant, knows nothing outside of the central New York bubble, demographic of a typical Utica topix poster.

Since when was it necessary to give people bread for a meal? When you think about it, it's retarded. You're going to fill your stomach with yeast BEFORE you get the meal you are paying for? And it's spelled TAILOR. As in a person most men in this city have never met judging by their clothing.

Wonder if people really knew the owners and employees drug habits if they would still think these are such fine uppity people.now first off lets start with the chef, he has never owned a restaurant before and in fact actually didnt even work in one, seems he was a fiber optic salesman with our local sign magnate.(think utica in RED).2ND the co owner ,well first off this is the man who with his co owner chef decided veterans werent good enough to stand on his street next to his fancy prepackaged coffee shack.3rd i too was more curious then anything, so one my last visit i tried the place and i will admit although some things i tried were delicious, the pricing in this market and in general is over the top and personally i have never seen a bartender measure my drink before.seems at every turn they hit the customer then the overbearing waitress expects a huge tip. Yeah right!!! Personally enjoyed my small portion but after getting raked with the check will never return. Kinda hard to make it in the restaurant business with one time customers. Obviously the owners and friends are trolling because they know people are unimpressed by mediocre effort.what they better realize is every opinion does count and a customer lost is lost forever.

everyone their trolling for money, waitress never said thank you, long haired thin overbearing girl. organic and not good,saw bartender empty some wine from one glass to another, must have over poured the 3 ounces! absolutely hysterical, nothing for free here, you would expect something with the stupid pricing, negative for us and my family owns a big local business. Mashed up and stripped awful veggies in bottom of most dishes as a filler, whatever they get for cheap must be. The Bosnian place on Bleeker st. ten times better and he is wonderful, bought us 2 bottles of wine, pricey also but you feel satisfied. DEF save yourself a few hundred and cancel a reservation if you have one. Just bad all the way around, we left mad and that bartender is ridiculous, just looking for money.
