We had a very quiet and civilized meal, with outstanding attentive service. The food was very good--outstanding: we three all had fish, prepared different ways, and all agreed the fish was tasty and fresh, good portion sizes. Gracious service, good value for quality of the food.

We went for brunch on St Patricks
We went for brunch on St Patricks Day - and there were many empty tables. I don't know what the noise level would be if the restaurant was full.

Excellent for business lunch.
Excellent for business lunch. Great service, efficient, pleasant. A wide variety of very good choices. I always select the salad with ahi tuna and it's always perfectly rare as odered. The salad with shrimp is also excellent and gorgeous. Lovely seasonal soups. A very solid, reliable go-to place to dine.

We really enjoyed our evening
We really enjoyed our evening at Cibo. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the service is not rushed. The prix fixe menu is a great deal. The food is very good and there is a nice selection on the menu. This was our second time here and we would definitely come back. It was a pleasure to be able to have a discussion with friends and be able to hear each other. It happens so rarely in restaurants these days!

Enjoy your visit
This is the third time I have eaten here. It is a very attractive, pleasant place to have lunch or dinner. The staff was very attentive, the room was attractive, - light and bright for lunch, the food excellent, and the price fair. I have recommended this restaurant to many people all of whom reported that they enjoyed it.

Original cuisine - a must try!
This was a Thursday 7pm dinner. The restaurant came highly recommended by a colleague and is close to where we were staying in Midtown Manhattan. The place was very quiet (we were one of 3 tables occupied in a fairly sizable room), which we appreciated. The service was excellent - and the food authentic, original and flavorful. The Prix Fixe menu was $38 and had a generous choice of delicious dishes. Over all, with only 1 cocktail, the bill came to under $125. Well worth it. You should go.

One of the best brunch bargains
One of the best brunch bargains in the city -- excellent food and a drink (bloody Mary or mimosa) for less than $20.

Love Cibo! Always great. Had a beautiful bridal shower there and they could not have been more accommodating! The regular Sunday brunch is a great value.

This place is a gem!
Without sounding dramatic...this restaurant was absolutely superb. The manager James, our server AK, and the rest of the Cibo staff were extremely hospitable and inviting. The fresh tomato and burrada salad started the meal off perfectly. The braised short rib followed and again...it was top knotch!!! There are many restaurants in the area that charge significantly more but fail miserably in comparison. If you're looking for the whole package...go dine at CIBO!

Cibo for lunch
A charming and elegant restaurant, with fantastic food and friendly, competent service. The prices are a bit high compared with other restaurants in the 42nd Street area, but you do get what you pay for.
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A neighborhood special
This is a lovely restaurant with good food and a nice atmosphere and good service. I have enjoyed lunch and dinner here.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed my friend's dinner this week!
The food was amazing and we had to ask for the chef to compliment him!
and lets not forget about the cocktails! I wish I could have tried all of them!
I will definitely go there again soon.

We went on a late Sunday evening (around closing time) but you would have never known. The service and food was excellent. The risotto side was heavenly and be sure to sample their breads with the delicious spread. We had the rabbit ragu which was well prepared. The portions are very generous. Would come back again

Celebrating 4th of July at CIBO
Upon entering Cibo, you are greated by one of the most charming Maitre ds in all of New York City.
The restaurant is chic casual. There are a few very romantic booths.
The waiters are delightfully engaging and the food is excellent, both delicious and beautifully prepared
They have a ore-fix and ala carte.
We live near Cibo but we would travel cross town to enjoy this Special spot.

Can't Get Enough of This Place
Cibo really sets the bar high and though I love trying new restaurants in New York, I always find myself coming back to CIBO! Their staff are the warmest, most welcoming people in the business. The food is absolutely 1st rate and they have a menu which fits all tastes and budgets. The atmosphere is lovely and there is plenty of room. We never feel like we're on top of other tables. In a nutshell, this place is a find and you will enjoy every aspect of your meal there...trust me!

Great food and awesome service
Lunch time with parents and husband. Cibo could be perceived to be a power lunch bunch but reallly has the ambience and quiet for any couple or group of diners. Tables are spaced so you feel you can enjoy your dining alone with your group. Even like the high top booths --Service was super- no pretense but quick, quiet and non intruding... no suggestive or subliminal selling. All four of us had prx fix lunch which was nicley pprtiioned and served with proper timing between apps and entrees. Would come back again for lunch when in area or even would be a destination to try for dinner. Thanks for great lunch.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
CIBO has great food , prepared well and presented in an elegant way! The prix fix is a great option!!
CIBO has a professional staff with personality and who are very attentive.
The bar is great for a cocktail after work as well as while waiting for other guests to arrive.
We highly recommend CIBO for both dinner and lunch! It has a very nice ambiance as well
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly a neighborhood gem
We have been away from the city for sometime so it's been months since we have been at Cibo. My wife and were very pleased to find it remains a wonderful restaurant .
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good place
My colleagues and I were short of time between two meetings and asked waiter to serve as fast as possible. And he did well! Thank you

Fabulous Dining Experience
Excellent food, service, and ambience. Our tiny reunion was a success!

I love CIBO and come all the time.
Great staff, great food
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great Place for any occasion
We are always treated as guests, not patrons. We make it a regular stop when we're in Manhattan.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I alway have a good dinner
I alway have a good dinner at Cibo, everyone I take there always enjoys it. Service is very attentive.
They have a great bar, wonderful cocktails.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always wonderful food and service
I love this restaurant, very close to Grand Central and only a few blocks from the Westin Grand Central. The food is always superb! Don't miss this for a great meal if you are close by.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliably good food
Always a good meal at fair prices, cozy booths if desired. Great homemade foccacio bread!

This is a FANTASTIC restaurant with EXCELLENT food and OUTSTANDING service. Highly recommend giving it a try!!!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been here many times
And it never disappoints! Service is always wonderful. The fresh ricotta cheese served with the bread is a lovely treat. The food is always solid and portions are very decent. I recommend this place if you want something just alittle out of the way ( along 2nd avenue in the 30's ) but always good .
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great dining experience
Cibo never disappoints. This was great. They change the menu each season, so we had the new fall menu, which was great. Wonderful service, as always.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined at Cibo off and on for years. I'm happy to say the quality of the food and the service are still excellent. We all ordered the fixe prixe $39. three course dinner, which is a great deal. We ordered the same appetizer-mussels in a tomato sauce. .The mussels were really fresh and the sauce was delicious. We loved the sea scallops ($5. extra), which were accompanied by mashed potatoes and vegetables. For dessert, I had the bread pudding, one lady had the chocolate gelato and the other had fruit crepes. All were excellent. It's great to have a place that we can depend on to always have a terrific meal in pleasant surroundings.
The brunch is also wonderful and a good deal. Go, you won't be disappointed.

I Have Always Loved Cibo
Cibo is a wonderful, dependable, friendly restaurant I return to again and again. The wait staff is attentive and the food never disappoints. It's busy at lunch time given its location but slows (and quiets) down at dinner making this a calm oasis just a few easy blocks from GCT. The dinner price fixe is a particularly good deal though all of the menu items are fairly priced and nothing at Cibo will send your wallet into shock.
I visited recently with my sister so we could have dinner together on our Mom's birthday. Mom isn't around anymore but I picked Cibo because I love it and knew my sister (and Mom) would, too. This was one dinner in particular I didn't want to go wrong and I knew I could trust Cibo not to disappoint. It didn't.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent meal, very happy overall
This is an excellent choice if you are near the United Nations, They have a fantastic lunch deal with may options and the portions are to satified everybody.I loved the food and everything.

A Pleasant Friday Night
My wife and I with two friends had another excellent meal at Cibo's, where we have been dining for several years when we are in New York City. The food was, as always, excellent but Cibo's is particularly pleasant because of the service. Our server was attentive, friendly and efficient. And the relative quiet of the restaurant made conversation easy and enjoyable.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Go for the Bread
Cibo is a great find in the Grand Central area. The food and service are wonderful, but if nothing else, the banana bread< with special jam, is spectacular.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent! my favorite so far
What an excellent place to be when you are in the UN neighborhood. Food was delicious and the service "fine dining" Wow!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great dinner prix fixe
Eight of us enjoyed a birthday dinner with many wonderful choices. We'll all be back!

Lovely Thanksgiving with Friends
We enjoyed the Prix Fix menu on Thanksgiving and the presentation and taste was wonderful. The choices of both traditional and eclectic were tasty ( especially the duck ) and the service was excellent. The staff were extremely accommodating with my reservation ( which changed several times prior to meal time) and there was a professional staff but warm family business type atmosphere.

Great place to eat
Best turkey dinner ive had at a restaurant. Great soup and excellent desserts.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my family of 6 to Cibo for Thanks
Giving dinner. We are not from NY but
Selected the place based on their web site
And past comments. We were very pleased
The food was delicious, portions generous,
Service was good and ambiance very nice
With impeccable linen and fresh flowers
On the table. Wine good but on the
Expensive side. The turkey dinner and
Steak were great. All desserts great too.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent choice for Thanksgiving
We were greeted by a very friendly host...I noted the exceptional fresh flower arrangement and liked the same touch on each table. Our server was warm and energetic. For Thanksgiving dinner, I thought the choices were excellent. Everyone was able to choose something that he/she liked. Unfortunately, two out of the three entress came out cold. The dishes were still excellent upon receiving them back hot. I would still go back to Cibo.
