Diner Reviews
  • "I like joining friends in the light bright room. There is something refreshing about it and the excellent food makes it a very friendly, nice place to visit."

  • "One of the best brunch deals in the city. Many choices -sweet and savory- of appetizer and main dish. Drink, coffee& tea, and delicious muffin/banana bread basket included in the $19.95 price. Friendly and efficient service. Good location near Grand Central transportation hub. Everyone I've brought here for brunch-all ages and food preferences-foodies or not- has raved about their brunch choices.Highly recommended."

  • "Cibo was recommended to us and we were not dissappointed! We had a great table in the corner and we were able to stay there and chat for about 3 hours. The food was presented beautifully and tasted spectacular! The service was spot on and our waiter had a both a great sense of humor and timing! Highly recommend!!"

  • "I was looking for a reasonably priced place close to where I live with good food. I think I found it. The service was quick, attentive and friendly. Pricing of the food and wine was very reasonable for the area. We stared with the salad recommended by our waiter. Tomatoes with imported mozzarella in balsamic viagarette. It was quite good, but the portion of cheese could have been a bit bigger. My friend had the duck, and it was very good. I had the salmon, which was good, but was served medium-well and was a bit dry. Overall, good experience, and I will give them another try in the near future."

  • "Cibo is near my office and therefore often a go-to place for dinner. The food is always above average (the short ribs are terrific), but just as importantly, the service is impeccable. The waitstaff is attentive without being overbearing and always has great, honest recommendations."

  • "flavoursome dishes (i've been here a number of times since it's close to our office, and can't say i've ever eaten something i didn't enjoy), great friendly staff, will come back many more times for sure."

  • "This was definitely an A experience! The ambiance is lovely with white table cloths on tables and in booths. The restauant is large and roomy, tables are not on top of each other (a real plus in NYC). The food was delicious and the presentation was artistic. I had the sirloin with sautéed spinach. The meat was flavorful and the serving was plentiful. My husband had the scallops which were large and beautifully plated, he loved them, and my son raved about the 1/2 chicken which was moist and flavorful. The breads were very good, served with oil and a soft cheese which we couldn't stop eating. I think Zagats was a little too tough on this very delicious and satisfying experience, this was better than many I've tried with Zagats 22-23 rating."

  • "In the middle of the very commercial Grand Central area, CIBO provides the attention, ambiance and delicious food to shake off the day and feel well taken care off."

  • "Very quiet when we were there, must've been a slow night. Food and service was very good, but too expensive, there are better places out there for these prices."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "A resonably priced prix fixe lunch. Nothing special about the food. Pleasant service. Miniature cannoli served with the check were a nice touch. Just fine for a weekday lunch but not much to make one remember this place."

  • "y, i was immediately greeted and shown to my table. i should mention that i went for a late lunch so the place was quiet..which for me is a home run. We started with one of their specialty drinks a pomegranite martini whic was the perfect selection. they serve a great breadbasket with ricotta cheese and olive oil..excellent. we shared the buratta and tomato salad which was garnished with a berry and was delicious. i had the cod and garlic mashed potatoes.and wilted spinach. It was good but there are better choices on the menu. my friend had the tuna with risotto and we finished it off with homemade tiramisu which was out of this world. I will definitely go back for dinner. if I didn't mention it the service was great too."

  • "We just returned from a lovely Christmas Eve Dinner at Cibo. Upon our arrival we were greeted immediately and entered a festive atmosphere for the Holidays. All of the staff were professional and courteous. The service was exceptional. The cost of our dinner was truly reasonable for the high quality of the food served and the selection was impressive. Thank you to all of you at Cibo for making our Christmas dinner so special. We will be back and we will bring our friends."

  • "This is the third consecutive Christmas I have taken my Mom here for dinner And Cibo again met my high expectations for great food, service, and ambience."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "For a horrible evening head to Cibo. Service is atrociously bad and the food is barely passable. We were ignored totally once dinner was put n the table. No be checked back to see f everything was ok, which it wasn't. Dishes were whisked away and no one came to take the order for the desert included n the price of dinner. No be came to bring a check to the table - we had to track down the manager to even pay for the dreadful privilege of being there. Avoid this joint.; it doesn't even deserve one star."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Never a bad meal or a bad experience at Cibo. Great prix fixe, but we often order a la carte."

  • "I booked a table of 10 for our office holiday luncheon. We were all greeted at the door in a friendly manner and checked our coats. We were seated promptly and our server was nice and friendly. Our appetizers and drinks came out fairly quickly, which was a nice surprise since the restaurant was packed with even bigger parties than ours. The main course was delicious! We did not stay for dessert, but will next time. Would highly recommend Cibo!"

  • "We enjoyed the Prix Fix menu on Thanksgiving and the presentation and taste was wonderful. The choices of both traditional and eclectic were tasty ( especially the duck ) and the service was excellent. The staff were extremely accommodating with my reservation ( which changed several times prior to meal time) and there was a professional staff but warm family business type atmosphere."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "It was ok food but the servings were too large - they should aim for quality over quantity! Very friendly but the ambiance wasn't much, even though we had a private booth. Not bad for an internet find, and the prices were decent. 1"

  • "Took my family of 6 to Cibo for Thanks Giving dinner. We are not from NY but Selected the place based on their web site And past comments. We were very pleased The food was delicious, portions generous, Service was good and ambiance very nice With impeccable linen and fresh flowers On the table. Wine good but on the Expensive side. The turkey dinner and Steak were great. All desserts great too."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We were greeted by a very friendly host...I noted the exceptional fresh flower arrangement and liked the same touch on each table. Our server was warm and energetic. For Thanksgiving dinner, I thought the choices were excellent. Everyone was able to choose something that he/she liked. Unfortunately, two out of the three entress came out cold. The dishes were still excellent upon receiving them back hot. I would still go back to Cibo."

  • "Of youre in this part of the city, Cibo is a good place for a lunch with colleagues or friends. It was that type of atmosphere when I was there, anyway. Very good bread and amazing stuffed calamari. Crabcake was so-so. All in all, a good choice for lunch."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "Cibo is a great find in the Grand Central area. The food and service are wonderful, but if nothing else, the banana bread< with special jam, is spectacular."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Very pleasant dining room with good space between tables and nice flowers - a great start! Service varied between appropriate and no one to be seen. At one point as I deperately tried to cath ANYONE's eye, I watched the manager and one of the two waiters serving our area talk for more than 3 minutes. Finally ordered wine from the bus boy. My app and entree were very tasty, as were my son's. My wife's butternut squash/pear soup was sweet enough to be dessert, as was her duck with pappardelle. How do you screw up duck and fresh pasta? Drown it in a super-sweet syrup instead of sauce. Wines were low priced but lower quality. We skipped dessert. All seemed intermittently interested but their compentence doesn't rise to the same level."

  • "This is an excellent choice if you are near the United Nations, They have a fantastic lunch deal with may options and the portions are to satified everybody.I loved the food and everything."

  • "My wife and I with two friends had another excellent meal at Cibo's, where we have been dining for several years when we are in New York City. The food was, as always, excellent but Cibo's is particularly pleasant because of the service. Our server was attentive, friendly and efficient. And the relative quiet of the restaurant made conversation easy and enjoyable."

  • "Cibo is a wonderful, dependable, friendly restaurant I return to again and again. The wait staff is attentive and the food never disappoints. It's busy at lunch time given its location but slows (and quiets) down at dinner making this a calm oasis just a few easy blocks from GCT. The dinner price fixe is a particularly good deal though all of the menu items are fairly priced and nothing at Cibo will send your wallet into shock. I visited recently with my sister so we could have dinner together on our Mom's birthday. Mom isn't around anymore but I picked Cibo because I love it and knew my sister (and Mom) would, too. This was one dinner in particular I didn't want to go wrong and I knew I could trust Cibo not to disappoint. It didn't."

  • "Food was very good. Service was very good. Price fix dinner was inclusive. Ambiance was ok. Suitable for tables of 10. Noise level was too high to be romantic. Convenient midtown location."
