    The space was unusually small and plain, but the food was excellent. The service also lived up to Cipriani's standards. Notably, the food portions on the restaurant week menu were quite substantial - not tiny like some other restaurant week offerings.

    Food was average. But most disappointing was that guests were allowed to smoke in enclosed terrace area where diners were seated. Several people complained and even moved but the practice was not stopped.

    They sat everyone outside where there was construction going on nearby so the noise level was a little ridiculous. I order from the restaurant week menu. I had the carrot soup; that was decent. Then I ordered the lemon and caper tilapia which was covered in a thick butter sauce. My boyfriend had the gnocchi and that was decent, but I would have expected better. For desert we ordered the ricotta cheese cake and tiramisu. Both tasted like it was from Entimens. I also was not pleased with the seating. Everyone was crammed into the outdoor seating and the indoor seating was completely vacant. I got stuck sitting by a lamp and other couples at least could sit closer to each other with candel light.

    I expected so much better from Cipriani's, the restaurant week menu had 3 choices for appetizer and for main courses. I decided on the Procsciutto with fresh Mozzarella what I got was thinly sliced deli ham and 2 skimpy peaces of Mozzarella. My main course (Roasted Chicken)was good but nothing special. The side dish was rice and it was nothing more than plain white rice that was too salty with no other seasoning and it was under cooked. My friend's fish was good but her rice was the same as mine. The service was not up to par as our waiter started off good but forgot about us as the dinner went on. Considering we were only 1 of 7 tables that night, it was upsetting to wait 20 minutes for a drink. The deserts were good.

    In some ways it was like re-entering the World of my parents who were diplomats in NYC in the early 1960s - the amazing color of the table cloths, the fascinating art work, attentive waiting staff, and the very good food. I was a little disappointed in the wine by the glass I had - but the presentation and ambience turned our working lunch into a moment of warm pleasure. The best of the past totally in the present!

    The restaurant week menu was not very appetizing, and I think it was the same as last summer. We picked some dishes from the main list. The food is not great here, but the service is amazing. The side of artichokes is the notable exception, I am a great fan. Beautiful setting and a pleasant night always.

    We went to Cipriani for Restaurant week, the selection was quite limited, 3 appetizers, 3 mains and one dessert. We were informed that one of the appetizers, the cra, was not even available and here was a shrimp substitution. I had the Talapia main which was good, but nothing special. My wife had the short ribs which she said was quite good. The service was not great, actually somewhat on the poor side. All in all it was quite a let down. Www live close by, but don't expect to be returning.

    I was disappointed all round for this restaurant. They put us in the library dining room, though I was aware that there was another more impressive dining room. The restaurant week lamb loin was tough and the moka cake was not memorable. The waiters took plates away without asking if we were finished with our dish.

    the food was just OK- the restaurant week menu was kind of limiting. Last time I joined them for restaurant week I had my choice of desserts but this time was just served chocolate cake. My boyfriends mozzarella was a bit off from his primi course. The entree, we both had the ravioli, was good- a bit heavy but good. To be honest, we left hungry. Nice to say we went but wouldn't do go again...hich is sad because I live in the neighborhood and would like to have had it in our pocket as a special occasion option.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/27/2011
    I went to Cipriani during Restaurant Week, which is about the only way this grad student could afford dining there. The starter of calamari and celery was very good, as was the desert of strawberry cheesecake. My only gripe was with the main course--my "medium salmon" was overcooked. I considered ordering it medium rare, but my server suggested I order it medium. The fried rice that accompanied it was unimaginative. I would have preferred a different starch. Portions were large though, and as a splurge, I ordered a peach bellini which was excellent.

    Let me start off by saying we chose the restaurant week dinner menu. So, dinner started off lovely. The string bean and beet salad were delish! However, things took a turn for the worst when I ordered the lamb. I asked for medium and it came out pretty much well done. It was crispy on the outside and rough on the inside. However, they did cook my fiance's lamb to his liking. I will go back to Cipriani's but not for restaurant week. As my fiance stated, they probably gave us the "restaurant week cut." I must mention that service is outstanding. The waitstaff were very attentive and did not let my glass of water go half-empty. Bon appetit!

    Took some clients to lunch here on a weekday. It's definitely a "power lunch" spot for the financial, dark suit set but does not have attitude and, refreshingly, is not overly loud. They made us feel very welcome and cared for and the food was excellent. Only complaint is that service was a bit slow.

    Overpriced for some seriously unimpressive, borderline food considering it's "Cipriani's". I was really stunned at how bad it was actually. The tables were too small and the service was below average. They don't even have a pastry chef (they brought out whole dessert cakes/tarts to show and had you choose one; they probably bought it from PAX! Plus they continued to use the same cakes/tarts to show AFTER they removed our slices!). There are too many good restaurants in NYC to blow your money on this place so DON'T GO!! What a disappointment. They should be ashamed of themselves.

  • This brasnch of the Cipriani
    stephenlieberVIP
    Dined on 10/14/2010
    This brasnch of the Cipriani chain has a good menu of fairly standard fare, and continued to offer a bargain Restauarnt Week prix fixe menu (very limited choices) well after that event had ended. Service was attentive and efficient. My biggest complaints concern the air conditioning and an annoying disco ball: the A/C vents are directed down along the wall, just where all the tables were set up (the center of the floor was cleared for dancing to a DJ later that evening, which probably also accounts for the presence of the disco ball). They should have kept the lights off the disco ball at least until the music started, since it was quite annoying. I'm sure the noise level escalated to loud one the music began, but we left before then.
