    Great service, excellent food. Trendy and relaxed atmosphere, good for diner or lunch. Excellent Bellini! I booked via opentable, but system was not operating when arrived. Very professional welcoming - they got me a table in less then 10 min.

    We arrived approximately 20 minutes before our reservation time and were able to be seated right away which was nice. Although my entree was delicious (fish of the day), the other two entrees orderd by others at the table were just ok. The service was subpar. We sat outside on the patio which was enjoyable until a homeless man approached every table and asked for money. Though there was a group of 3-5 Cipriani employees observing this, none of them requested that the man leave guests alone. Overall, the experience was average. With so many restaurant options to choose from in New York City, I don't plan on dining at this restaurant again.

    Despite the open table reservation we had to wait for 20 minutes as the place was packed and they didn't seem to really care about the opentable reservations. The second bad impression was when they opened the water bottle and later I realized it was $11.50 for 1 liter of water... That is expensive plain water!!! The food was good but the waiters were really pressuring the customers to leave as soon as possible to free the tables for others. Unless they were friends of the house.

    I love to go to Cipriani Dowtown any time of year but particularly when you can sit outside and watch the world go by in SoHo. The food is fantastic and not inexpensive. However, the atmosphere of cool, European chic more than makes up for the $23 salads, which are, by the way fantastic. I would suggest having the classic Belini and then a glass of wine. I would also suggest lingering over your meal and enjoying the atmosphere.

    First the service was amazing. Jose is a gem who has been working for the family for many years. He made us feel very welcome. Everything we had was outstanding; however, we only had two drinks and an appetizer because it was more expensive than we realized it would be. The drinks were $19 each. I had a vodka and orange juice, which had fresh squeezed juice. Delish. We had tuna tartare for the appy, also very fresh and divine. We sat inside because it was too warm outside. The atmosphere is lovely.

    When my friend I first arrived no one attended us or greeted us. We stood there for 4 minutes and the people that worked there including the manager were looking at us as if we arrived to shut the place down. We decided to walk out after that horrible first impression until a nice black gentlemen who worked there caught our attention and convinced us to go back inside. The manager came to us looking startled and confused. He couldn't even speak with confidence and greeted us dryly. Eventually we sat down and our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable. The quality of the food is not worth the price. I've had way better pasta elsewhere for a lot less and better ambiance. The dessert was blah. Nothing special. I wouldn't eat here again.

    If you are new to NYC, just visiting with a loved one of some friends, YOU MUST GO TO CIPRIANI. The food is amazing, the service is just perfect and it is such a hot spot for people watching and you will most probably run into someone famous there. Great neighborhood too if you want to walk around after lunch or dinner and window shop/shop/hang out. Simply the best (I have been there 3 times)

    Food was pretty good, but the service was only mediocre. The staff seemed rushed and to want to get you out quickly. Space was tight but that wasn't a huge deal. Ambiance is nice and cozy, but the terrace is small so it's hard to get a spot outside. Lots of other places I'd want to try before going back here.

    For Classic Venetian food, this is the spot. Rich with history of Harry's bar in Venice, few know that it was the location where both carpaccio and bellinis were created. There are no trendy dishes on the menu, just extraordinary soups, amazing prosciutto, salads, pastas and classical Venetian style entrees. And this family knows how to make you feel at home and special!

    Even though i had a reservation, they stuck as at a table near the bathroom....could smell the disinfectant. The waiter asked us if we were ready to order at least 6 times during the first 10 minutes we were seated. He acted like he was doing us a big favor by waiting on us. The food is good, but extremely expensive (which I knew, but you would expect them to treat you better). We are NY'ers. We were well dressed. I had my 9 year old daughter with us (which i'm guessing is why they stuck us in such a bad table), but it was Father's Day! Never again and I eat out at pricey restaurants at least 4x per week.

    What an enjoyable experience yet again at this fun spot. The place is busy and the food is super clean and fresh. The artichoke and avocado salad is super and the tuna tartare is a winner. The waitstaff are some of the most attentive in the city, watching every move but so unobtrusive. Tables on both sides of us both asked us to do things (move the bench, borrow our olive oil-nicely enough) but the staff ran to our rescue and quietly apologized. Quite an effort to be sure we were comfortable in such a busy spot. Thank you for a fun, delicious lunch Cipriani! We will be back!

    The food was very good, but unfortunately the service was not. We had to ask for a waiter to come over to place our order. We had to ask for our bill. I was very surprised that we were ignored, but there was celebrity in the restaurant at the time, so they seemed to be placing their service elsewhere.

    I've been going to cipriani restaurants for as long as I can remember, I have gone to this in particular, since it also has a great bar for Sundays, however, never in all my visits I have been refused to be served another drink, which happened this time which I happened to be celebrating with my wife and friend an important personal accomplishment. It made my celebration go sour in 2 seconds.
