    Cibo has delicious, creatively prepared food, a very professional and friendly staff and a nicely appointed dining room. There's also a parking garage located conveniently across the street making it easy to visit. We ate there after a Broadway show and our dinner was a perfect compliment to our visit.

    My husband has come to cibo for business lunches so we thought we would try it for dinner with friends visiting from out of town. What a mistake. Food looked good on the menu but in reality it was tasteless and undistinguished. Absolute nothing special here. In a city with so many good restaurants, this would not be my recommendation. I felt embarrassed that we took our friends here. Our server was lovely but it took forever to get our drinks and bread. Wish it had been better.

    We meet our out of town and out of area friends at Cibo whenever there is a need to get together at a central place. Parking is either on the street or inexpensive. We love the food and the servers are always pleasant. It is our "go to" restaurant in Manhattan.

    The ambiance is wonderful and the meal began on a high note with delicious bread and cheese with olive oil and balsamic. It was truly delicious. Our appetizers were also excellent-tomatoes with mozzarella/roasted peppers. My husband ordered the mussels which were very tasty. For a main meal, I ordered the hanger steak (special) and it was tough and stringy. My husband ordered the strip steak which was just OK-nothing special.

    Dined on 6/24/2014
    This pleasant little neighborhood place continues to struggle with quality control. Last time they completely forgot a dessert order. This time they managed to bring all our dishes BUT the tuna in the seared tuna salad was tough to the point of being inedible (on the plus side, the smoked tomato soup was very good). I want to like this place but it keeps letting me down on basics. I am not giving up however!

    service and attention from the staff was noteworthy. Noise level was a little too high but there was a special party going on so when the party departed, the noise level returned to very tolerable levels. Food was very good. first time there for me and my friends and we would all happily return for another evening. very much recommend this restaurant.

    We had a client in town and our meeting ran late and we missed our lunch reservation at another nearby restaurant. We quickly needed a spot for 10. Cibo accommodated us and the food was great and came out quickly. The servers seemed a bit over zealous...clearing plates before people we finished, filling tap water in a sparkling water glass....knocking things over. But the food was good so I would go back next time I have to take a client to lunch.

    I've never had a bad meal at Cibo, and the waitstaff and management are among the best in town. Always friendly and accommodating, Cibo is a wonderful neighborhood respite in midtown. The specials are always good value, the food is excellent, with both traditional and inventive items, the space is elegant, but comfortable. Cibo is a well kept secret. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    I booked a table for 4 at Cibo for Sunday brunch. Three of us ordered from the brunch prix fix menu--it's $20 for two courses, coffee and a drink (mimosa or soda). We weren't asked about the mimosa and not all of our coffees were added into the package and wound up being charged separately. My scrambled eggs with bacon and the eggs benedict were good. The french toast was dripping in oil and grease for some reason. My friend could not eat it and I don't blame her. She didn't say anything to the waiter but after 30 minutes, he came over and offered something else. The kitchen made her pancakes, which were fine. We appreciated that but otherwise service was slow. It took us 20 minutes to get the check. Not the worst but I won't go back.

    We have eaten at Cibo (pronounced "Cheebow") many times. The food is consistently good (from the menu and specials), and their prix fix is especially noteworthy. Tables are far enough apart that it's possible to have a quiet conversation; service is excellent without being disruptive. And we've never felt rushed. There are relatively few fine restaurants Manhattan's mid-town east, and this is one of the best.

    Overall a perfectly nice little neighborhood place with decent food. A recent service experience, however, may serve as a warning not to give the staff anything too challenging to deal with ... we were pressed for time at the end of lunch and ordered a dessert to be accompanied by the check (surely not that unusual a request in NYC?). Instead we got the check but no dessert. When we repeated the dessert request to the server, the check was removed and then returned with the dessert included. However no actual dessert ever appeared and our server was nowhere to be found. As we needed to get going, we just signed the check and departed dessertless. Lesson? Keep it simple I suppose. Or tailor your expectations ....

    Steak was a poor cut. Friendly service was inadequate--waiter did not remember or write down all of the order. No requested beverage was served. Different vegetable was served from those promised. When queried: "Sorry we ran out." Quoted price on a special entrée was less than the actual price.
