Wonderful experiences – I was recently at cibo for a holiday corporate event and I was amazed with how wonderful everything was. It inspired me to return a few weeks later and I was again thoroughly impressed.
Disgraceful! – Called for reservation for 5 - got there on time, no reservation noted = no table ready!
Salads were wilted and brown - Pastas were ice cold - pre-cooked and microwaved and all the dinners were served lukewarm, including supposedly fresh fish. The service was terrible and the only one working hard was the busboy serving water. Very disappointing and an expensive mistake to go here.
what a disappointment – i cant figure how this one got a 9.3 rating! total tourist trap, way way over price for its value, microwave quality food, cutleries and plates are blurry and somewhat not restaurant caliber. old and tired!
Murray Hill Marvel – This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The service and food are superb. Equally capable of handling dinner for two, a large party of 10 or more, or, they will close for a private party. Their menu changes seasonally and is excellent. Try the mussels, sliced Burrata mozzerella salad, any fish dish (especially the soft shell crabs, my favorite), all the desserts. A very good price fixe, for lunch and dinner. Brunch is great, includes many items from their regular menu, and is a very good value. Try it--these people will make you feel truly cared for.
What a fraud! – The place was so snotty, too expensive and It was Valentines day to boot! The food had to taste for how much money I paid!
Good Restaurant in the 40s – Lets face it, there are few restaurants in the 40s on the East side, with many bad places. This place is one of the few places where I know I will be happy with my meal. I have been to Cibo numerous times, even on Thanksgiving one time and have always been satisfied overall. No the service is not like a 5 star French restaurant, but it is average. One time the air conditioning was blowing right on our table, making it uncomfortable and they took care of the problem. Between myself and everyone I have taken to this restaurant, we have never had a bad dish.
Inventive Tuscan-inspired food in the landmark Daily News Building. – The Scene
With an otherwise hotel-lobby feeling, the dim lights, fresh flowers and flawlessly set tables make this an elegant place. Since it's located in the Daily News Building, it's not surprising that the the two rooms are full of journalists at lunch. At night, residents from Tudor City make this their dining room away from home. Service is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Two former chefs from the Sign of the Dove have created a Tuscan-inspired menu that changes seasonally. Expect fresh produce--fava beans, fiddlehead ferns, peaches and vine-ripe tomatoes--to appear in inventive recipes, such as peach butter served with the foie gras appetizer. An onion marmalade tart, served with smoked duck carpaccio, is a highlight. Lobster Newburg, baked in polenta, is outstanding. Desserts include chocolate souffle and peach cobbler.
business diners beware – Having eaten there a number of times in the past, I recommended it confidently and took a party of 12 clients. Dinner, service was fine but unfortunately, we were in a corner which was quite overheated. My clients were sweating, mopping their brows, etc. One of the wait staff enthusiastically agreed that it was indeed quite hot at our table. No attempt was made to adjust the heat. Afterward, the senior member of the party provided his Diner's card to pay the check and was advised 'we don't take Diner's over $500'. This is especially annoying as acceptance of Diner's was one criteria for selecting Cibo. Guess they would have been happier if we gave them 12 Diner's cards and told them to split the check 12 ways. I won't return or recommend the restaurant again.
where is my waiter?!@#$# – I had visitors from out of town and all 11 of us went to Cibo for Saturday brunch. There was no one at the door greeting us to start with and the waiter didn't seemed to care about us at all. The waiter didn't ask if we wanted anything to drink until 20 mins after we got seated and he never came back to explain why the food didn't come out for another hour. I understand that preparing food for 11 people can take some time but, we would've appreciated some attention. Letting the costomers know what's going on and be attentive is one of the basic things a restaurant should offer.
Gotta go to CIBO – Best restaurant in the neighborhood. Always good. The menu is seasonal, which makes me confident you're dealing with a "real" kitchen. The service is proficient and equally "real". I'm especially impressed with the gorgeous decor: fresh cherry blossoms, abundant flowers and candles on the tables. What's not to like?
