  • "The restaurant is very impressive to look at. The food not so much."

  • "I have traveled several times to the Youngstown area and have been very disappointed by the selection of "Upscale Italian Restaurants" that have been suggested to me. My last trip the Hotel recommended the CA Restaurant and I was blown away by the atmosphere and vibe almost South Beach meets trendy Manhattan hot spot. The food was outstanding, I had Imported Burrata & Prosciutto, Thai curry Mussels and Lobster Spaghetti that was served perfectly al dente. I cant wait to go back and explore the rest of the menu as my server said they are known for their fresh fish and hand cut steaks. Hopefully Youngstown's "Italian" restaurants take notice to what simple things like actually boiling water and cooking fresh pasta can do!"

  • "This restaurant is probably the best in our area. The food is absolutely great. The service we had on a Friday night was very good. We were seated right next to the open kitchen. The dining room can be loud with the acoustics and the open kitchen but we had no problems talking amongst ourselves and heating each other. This is an expensive but very, very good restaurant."

  • "First off this restaurant has all the potential to be great. The wait staff is excellent and attentive. Good wine list. They take chances with menu trying different things. Korean bulgogi was just ok n portion was small but i was impressed they tried. The steak my wife had was fantastic. Unfortunately they seem to think they are better than their customers at times. I have called to make reservations in the past n been told to callback in an hour. as the person who picked up the phone didn't wasn't able to help me. Our hostess in a restaurant that was completely empty tried to seat the two of us at the smallest table/bar table in the entire restaurant. Intrigued as to where she thought we were going to eat our food Lots of potential"

  • "We just learned of CA about a year ago and since then we have been back many times. The dining room is very sleek, as are the table settings. It is a very different atmosphere for the Youngstown area. The food has been consistently good. Same menu with very few added specials. We know what we like and come there to get it. Salads are big so we share. The rock shrimp appetizer is delish! The chocolate dessert is excellent. Our only criticism is that it gets very noisy. We are older, so it's hard to hear when it's full. . Pretty small complaint for a wonderful restaurant. The wait staff has always been very professional too. "

  • "The best thing I can say about CA is that I felt that we were on a trip to another city with wonderful restaurants......like CA! Friendly hostess, barmaid and server, potent potables, superb appetizers and outstanding meals. We've been there many times, and the experience never disappoints. A hidden gem, on McClurg Road!"

  • "We were a group of six, they invited us to sit in the private wine room. It was great. Food , menu selection, and service all outstanding. But the ambience really makes you feel like your in a big city somewhere . Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Had a wonderful dinner at Culinary Arts last Saturday night. I had the salmon with orange fennel salad. This was the best salmon I have ever eaten in a restaurant. A little crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. My husband had the coffee rubbed pork and he said it was very good. Oyster appetizer was delicious. For dessert we had raspberry creme brulee and it was very creamy and delicious with brown sugar topping. We had the least expensive bottle of cab-believe it was Josh Cabernet. It was $26 and very good. Our seating was near the kitchen and I found it very interesting to watch the prep and delivery of food. Our waiter was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine."

  • "We sat close to the bar which was quite energetic so noisier than I would like (further inside might be quieter). Food was quite good. Had the Korean BBQ bulgogi was charred a little more than I would like but marinated well. The Pappardelle tasted good. Had duck frites appetizer which had a very good flavor."

  • "Really like the food and decor of this place. This area of Ohio is trash heap and this makes you feel like you are in a trendy Chicago restaurant. The food is by far the best I've had outside of a major city; my fish was cooked perfectly. I can't explain how simple the dish was, but how unbelievable it was. Something needs done to section off permanently the bar and the dining area. Throughout the nite there are constant dudes in the middle of their midlife crisis peering in with their umbrella drink and scoping the dining area. A. Stay on the bar side and hit up the 80's haired 3 times divorcees in your wheelhouse, and B. buy a shirt that fits and lose the embroidered jeans. Place is awesome for food and vibe, not for intimate quietness."

  • "The service was terrible .It was hard to get your water glass refilled. My husbands meal was overcooked,we were served coffe had to ask another waitress for cream because ours completely forgot the second she walked away from our table ,we watched her go back and forth and never even glanced our way."

  • "We were seated promptly but in the bar-beautiful and fun but not for 6 to talk and have dinner. It was loud and people standing in front of our table so had to look their back side while we ate. Didnt order appetizers, 3 ordered salads $7 each. Caesar was a joke 3-4 pieces of lettuce with a crouton on each. Pear pecan was fine but hardly any pecans and dressing. Beet salad was the best with good feta on top. Took the waitress a while to get back to us for rest of order. We ordered salmon, Ahi tuna, beef, duck and sea bass. It took the meals a while to come out but all were outstanding. Again took waitress a while to bring checks. Would recommend but make sure you have time and request dining room."

  • "CA provides a big city vibe backs up the ambience with an exceptional menu but manages to maintain a friendly personal experience. The wait-staff is well trained , knowledgable and hardworking. They work very hard to provide personal service and remain out of focus never interfering with conversations or getting too personal. I always leave satisfied knowing that my time and money have been well spent. CA May be the finest dining establishment in the city and I typically dine out 4 or 5 times each week."

  • "Excellent ambience,food is very good,but I think the future for this restarant is problematic.Hostess did not make us feel welcome,waitress,blond haired woman was marginal at best,seems unhappy,and the boys were rather intrusive,asking to take plates away every five minutes.I don't mind paying the price for good food and good service,but I felt this was poor value."

  • "Coming from NY it is really hard to find restaurants that are a beautiful dining experience. This was a wonderful place to go that brought me back to that. Our food experience was amazing!! The ambiance is excellent and the staff is polite and professional!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was absolutely perfect. The ambience is very nice. The Meal prices are reasonable. They boast an extensive wine list fit for any vino lover. The culinary excellence will have me returning. With eastern Ohio/western PA becoming a hotspot for craft breweries; I would suggest carrying more craft beers and suggesting food paring with craft beers as well as wine. The service could have been better. Our server brought out the wrong orders at first and forgot a few things we requested. they made no suggestions for pairing wines with foods and did not have much information about the details of the entrees."

  • "Culinary arts Center represents a truly unique dining experience. The studio kitchen is amazing to watch. The food presentations are amazing. The staff is very attentive and the ambience is second to none . it's like taking a trip to South Beach only minutes from my home in northeastern Ohio. Bravo to Chef BJ for taking the torch and running with it!"

  • "The culinary arts, open kitchen concept for a restaurant is very cool, but difficult to make enjoyable for all guests as some tables must be next to the kitchen and that's where my party was seated. The noise level was similar to that of a cafeteria - able to hear (over the exhaust fans) discussion of orders, pans being placed down etc. I didn't realize it at the time, but the next day, my clothes smelled like I sat next to a fryer which, technically, I did. Service & staff were great. Unfortunately for the CA, we have many great restaurants in our area and at the CA, the food was only fair & overpriced. I will not be going back to the CA restaurant, but will definitely patronize the CA's very cool bar/lounge & its parties."

  • "This restaurant reminds me of a LA trendy hot spot. We happened to go on a champagne Friday. There was a Raw Bar set up with fresh oysters and bar bits. Also champagne by the glass...again are we in Boardman, OH??? Its nice to find a place like this in a not so assuming area where all you can find is your basic chain restaurants down the road. The menu is interesting too, with food for everyone's tastebud. I would suggest getting an appetizer or salad with your meal, or you may be hungry when you leave. Overall -- cannot wait to go back!"

  • "The atmosphere was beautiful, our food was flavorful, and our service was great!! Kristen McNally completed our CA experience!!"
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "While the ambiance was pleasant and the food adequate, the service we received ruined the experience. Our server Kristen could not have been any less attentive. She barely stayed at our table long enough to meet our needs. She forgot our drinks, neglected refilling our water glasses, brought bread when we were almost finished with dinner and dropped a fork on my fiancé's pants-all without so much as an apology. The table we were given was so close to the cooking area that we witnessed several other servers pick up dishes and spill the sauces from the plates onto the floor. This happened at least three times and no one seemed to notice and no one bothered to request that the chef correct the meal or at least have someone clean the floor!"

  • "Don't let the location in an industrial park fool you- this is a REAL restaurant with high quality food cooked well and served beautifully. The portions are a nice size for the price and the selection is varied. The energy from the entire service staff was positive, and everyone seemed knowledgeable about the menu. The wine list had a nice variety and a nice range of prices, so it appeared very accessible to all levels of wine drinkers. Make sure to save room for dessert- there were 3 of us dining and we shared 2 desserts and they were good sized portions and SCRUMPTIOUS! Wish we lived closer so that we could come back again!"
