A word from Harry Cipriani
Harry Cipriani is located at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City. This fashionable restaurant is almost an exact duplicate of the original Harry's Bar in Venice. It is packed daily with chic New Yorkers and visitors from all over the world. Harry Cipriani offers the classic Harry's Bar menu of unique Cipriani specialties and classic Italian favorites. Service is superb; and whether you are a regular with your "own table" (many customers have lunch or dinner at Harry Cipriani every day!) or a first time guest, you are received with warmth and enthusiasm.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The worst food and dinning experience we ever had in NYC. 2 people: one drink each; two apps; a veal Milanese and a risotto $330"

  • "My favorite place in the City! Service is impeccable; food is delicious; and I always feel right at home in this elegant atmosphere."

  • "Having had a bad experience in Cipriani in London years ago I was surprised about the quality of Harry Cipriani in New York. The crowd was an eclectic mix of locals, bohos and tourists. Service was efficient and swift but pleasant, the food was good. We had the burrata which was delicious, there was a variety of fresh breads and my husband's halibut was delicious. I had the scampi in curry, maybe not the best choice to have in an Italian restaurant. The cakes for dessert looked all very tempting but we skipped dessert this time. The tables were a little bit cramped at the front of the restaurant where we were sitting. Towards the back they were spread out a little bit more. Not cheap, but you wouldn't expect that in a place like that."

  • "Met some friends for a business lunch and was impressed with all the other notables also meeting for a business lunch. Power lunching at it's finest with impeccable service, wonderful bread and varied menu. My guest had the chicken sandwich and said it was fantastic, my chicken salad was a bit bland, but fresh with lots of chicken. Sadly we did not stay for dessert, but the tray looked excellent. Will go back in the future, eating lunch in such a lovely area can be addictive."

  • "Try home made pasta! And the chocolate cake. Don't forget to try a Bellini , they invented it"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "When the appetizer is just good and both main courses are dull, one starts to wonder what the reputation of this place is based upon. Beautiful crowd is certainly not enough."

  • "Food at Harry Cipriani is increible! Definitely one of the best kitchens in NY. The service is OK. The restaurant is constantly packed so it makes it tough on the waiters who even have to make time to plate your food."

  • "The Regulars, and there were many, were seated at the front. The tourists were seated way to the back of the restaurant. The Regulars all seamed to know each other, and the staff knew them, too."

  • "Our second visit to Harry Ciprani. First visit was vastly different from our most recent visit. Service was excellent and food better. This time we had a very arrogant server who did not listen to our orders and then argued when he brought the incorrect item. Prices are way too expensive for the quality of food--even for NYC. Salads start at $20, desserts (simple cake selections or ice cream/gelato) at $15. Cocktails, as well, are expensive for quantity--tiny martini at $22. Perhaps at one time this was the place to go, but there are so many other better restaurants with better services at more reasonable prices one should not bother to try Harry Ciprani."

  • "A very friendly restaurant and a nice bar (the bellini is the best), the food is amazing, (the pasta is wonderful) reasonable wine list. The service was very friendly. I recommend it! It's our restaurant in New York."

  • "World famous Cipriani is crowded and cramped, but elegant and energetic, with famous faces everywhere. Many classics on the menu, including the best carpaccio and bolognese sauce anywhere on earth."

  • "Good food and excellent scenery, right across Central Park and close to the best shopping area in Manhattan! The risotto remains one of the best in town!"

  • "It was a very nice experience, I met this restaurante many years ago and always is the First Class, I will be back, sure."

  • "A bit of an off night at Harry Cipriani's. Normally one of our favorite dining spots and we have dined there many times and usually receive a warm welcome as a repeat guest. Upon arriving we were seated at a table in the front; then approached by the new person manning the reception area and asked to move to the worst table in the restaurant in front of the door because the table we were seated at was reserved. We did not move. The initial contact by the wait staff was brusque at best. Once we ordered and added cocktails and wine, service improved greatly. I was surprised our waiter went off shift during dessert and did not approach the table and turn us over to someone else. After he left, service essentially stopped."

  • "Having tried the other Cipriani restaurants in NYC, I was looking forward to dinning in this one. It's as good, if not better, than the ones downtown and at Grand Central. For the most part, service was good. (There was only one incident of forgetting my beverage order.) Food wise, we were all satisfied. The homemade deserts were interestingly and tasted good. However, when you consider that the dinner costed close to a grand for four adults and one 7 yr old (we ordered a $200 wine), this is quite expensive."

  • "Stay away is the best advice I can give you. I have attended a fair amount of private events at the flagship Cipriani. Unfortunately, this one is attached to a not-so-great hotel. So you get the overflow from the hotel---tourists dressed in casual wear (shorts, jeans etc.). On the evening that we dined, it was filled with loud and obnoxious children. The service was so disconnected. We had multiple waiters who couldn't keep up with what the other waiter was doing. The food was, at best, a two star experience. However, the prices were definitely five star. There are so many great restaurants in NYC for that price point. My $28.00 starter salad was corn poured from a can, sliced cucumbers and a few cherry tomatoes. "

  • "The food was good, the drinks are about $20, and it is the least relaxed place to eat in the city unless you just like that kind of stuck up atmosphere. "

  • "The service, food, staff and ambient are so friendly, softly and each client is VIP!! Congrats!!"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Given the prices, there are far better restaurants on the Upper East Side to choose from. What Harry's has going for it, is its iconic status on the corner of Central Park. It is a mix of old money New Yorkers, new money New Yorkers that want to look old money, and tourists. The food and service is average, particularly given the prices, but it is still a place everyone should go at least once. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We looked forward to a special dinner on a special day. Our expectations were not met. Service was without personality and confusing. Wine recommendations were difficult to get. When we complained on one of our main courses, there was no response. The prices are high but neither food nor service are on par with prices. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I love this place. Food is always good and the portions are generous. You are always treared nicely by the maitre D. Some of the personnel are a little rough, unless they know you or you are " part of the frequent crowd that visits the restaurant". Overall very good"

    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "We ordered the grilled pasta which we have eaten many times in this restaurant. This time the Cheff forgot to put salt in it, so our 4 main courses were tasteless!! Also the Vitello tonnato was dry, thick and presented in a bread plate. Simply unacceptable in a restaurant that expensive"
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Service and ambiance is good, but food although the quality is not fenomenal. Does not make us want to comeback. Overpriced on the food."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Expected a lot for from a 80 dollar per person dinner... food was ok but not as good as it should have been. Noise, waitresses complaining to each other.... not good."

  • "I make sure to visit Cipriani whenever I'm in New York - either to just drop in for one of their delicious signature bellinis, or for a long lunch. The waiters are so friendly, and the atmosphere is great. I will, without a doubt, keep my tradition and come back the next time I'm in town. "

  • "Cipriani provides a classic patrician dining experience in New York City. I'm not sure there are many of these restaurants left, even in Italy, where I lived in the 1970s. Its food is delicious (the vitello tonnato was great, and so was the eggplant parmigiana) but the bread is unexciting. But beware...The prices will blow you out of the water. "

  • "We were staying at the hotel next door so I made reservations at Harry Cipriani thinking it would be a special dinner for our first night in the Big Apple. We rushed to arrive at 6, our reservation time. The restaurant was nearly empty except for the small bar area which was full and noisy. We were taken to a small table in a corner next to the only other occupied table in the restaurant. The waiters were not friendly or attentive. The food was okay, very simply prepared but exorbitantly priced - $20 for four spears of asparagus with olive oil on top, etc. We weren't very hungry so we shared that plus two other dishes (one an entree) that I can't even remember. I will never recommend this restaurant or return to it."

  • "My VP and I brought a client here for dinner. When I brought out my laptop to show the client something the manager rushed ove to make me put it away. I would have no problem with that but he scolded me like a child. It was rude and inappropriate in front of my client. My VP had to ask for the check 3 times within 35 minutes! If they didn't give it to us the 3rd time we were going to walk out! Very disappointing I will not be back nor recommend this establishment- awful!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "One of the world's most famous restaurants - great menu. Many of the classics from the Bellini to the carpaccio were invented by Cipriani. The best pasta bolognese on earth. A room always filled with energy, fun and famous faces."
