    The restaurant is ok. I go there for business lunch all the time and like it. Would not recommend for dinner as it is relatively very expensive if you order a la cart. We were particularly astonished by the bad service. Our wIter kept checking his mobile phone and texting, with the text sound on, plain rude!

    Lunch outside the UN during General Assembly Week is always a challenge. Cibo is close to the UN, but off the beaten track for many delegates. It's super for a quiet lunch and good service. Food is consistently good -- and if you are really hungry their specials are well-priced!

    Found this place because of its proximity to a friend's hotel. Picked it (from dozens) because of it's great reviews. We went at 11am for Sunday brunch, and for a while had the place to ourselves . The experience was as close to perfection as it gets. If you have read other of my reviews you might notice they are generally quite positive--this not because I'm easily pleased, but rather because using a combination of Open Table, MenuPages, and Yelp (including reviews), I can usually find the dining experience for which I am hoping.

    The service was right on, attentive, cordial, professional, and never rushed. They have a very nice prix fixe menu that has plenty of options and at $39 is hard to beat in midtown. We started with the Cibo Chopped Salad and the Homemade Mozzarella salad which were quite nice and bountiful portions. For the main course we had the Homemade Cavatelli with sweet fennel sausage and the Slow-braised Lamb Shank. Both were quite scrumptious and again, plentiful. While they have some nice dessert selections on the prix fixe menu they do offer more at the time you are ready to order. Again, good desserts and big portions! They have a nice wine selection and a full bar. The service was awesome and we will go back next time we are in NYC.

    Stopped in to Cibo the other night as I'd passed by the restaurant several times and wanted to try it. The host was very friendly and solicitous. I had the salmon with pineapple flavored basmati rice and kale. It was very flavorful although the salmon was not cooked medium rare as I requested. I was quite full so didn't order dessert although the dessert menu was very tempting. I did get two very delicious biscotti for the trip home. I would definitely return.

    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.

    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.

    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!
