Diner Reviews
  • "this is one of my favorite places to go for lunch or dinner. The food is very good, the service excellent and the place attractive and comfortabele. I wish it were a little less noisy."

  • "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."

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "First visit for a business luncheon. Great location as off beaten path and away from tourists but average burger, inferior to pub fare. Will return if need lunch meeting place on East Side but may stick to salad."

  • "I still love the place, but the portions are getting smaller Ambiance and service will still bring me back"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Everything was great except the service was exceptionally slow. That's unusual so I will definitely be back and check it out again. Cibo is always great. I recommend it highly, for lunch, dinner, brunch, large groups, small groups, couples, everyone."

  • "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."

  • "Cibo is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. A true gem."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "Wonderful prix fixe brunch. We were seated immediately (with our Open Table reservation). Many choices on the menu. Everything was delicious. Service was very attentive."

  • "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!"

  • "My buddy and I made a last minute reservation for lunch and I am glad that we chose Cibo. The restaurant is convenient, the staff is extraordinarily friendly and the food is really good. Great wines and martinis. What else could you ask for?"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "Cibo is a great place to go when you actually want to have a conversation with the folks you are dining with! All four of us enjoyed our terrific dinners while catching up."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Which spells inconsistency. I had a problem with a too heavy red thick sauced pasta dish --the ameritalian kind."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Pleasant lunch, with accommodating service. The manager makes sure all is going smoothly and handled an issue that we had"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Been eating there since they opened. Its always consistent, good food, good service and nice atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Met with friends there for brunch. Food was delicious and nicely presented. Staff was friendly and obliging! Was a nice experience and good choice for Brunch."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "It's rare to find an relaxed place with excellent food and service that allows for conversation. No one rushes you and everything is consistently wonderful."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Thanks to Ray and his team our group business lunch was a success. Cibo has great food, service and an ambience that allows for conversation. "
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "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!!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "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."
